Right-wing commentator and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson ripped Democrats as a bunch of phonies who hate God on his show yesterday in the wake of the shooting of Republican Rep. Steve Scalise and others earlier this week.
Peterson was reacting to reports that Democrats had gathered in prayer upon learning of the shooting, which he declared was “phony stuff” because Democrats hate God and are “children of Satan.”
“This is not real,” Peterson said. “What are the Democrats praying for? The Democrats are not of God. All of a sudden when Scalise gets shot, when they hear about the shooting, all the children of Satan are going to come together and pray? Please!”
“The Democrats don’t love God,” he continued. “They could care less about God. Their father is Satan and that’s the reality.”
Peterson said that “Democrats are not about morality, they’re not about love, they don’t care about anything but politics and power,” which is why they are trying to corrupt the nation by supporting things like marriage equality and transgender rights and “everything that’s bad.”
“Why would you want to pray with the children of Satan?” Peterson rhetorically asked Republicans. “They serve a different God than you. That’s reality.”
