The night before Gov. Bobby Jindal’s “The Response” prayer rally, Rachel Maddow took a look at the “questionable characters” who were promoting Jindal’s event, most notably “respected prophet” Cindy Jacobs.
Maddow looked back at some of Jacobs’ greatest hits — from her ability to prevent coups and forsee terrorist attacks to her belief that birds died as a result of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and even her power to raise the dead — marveling that organizers for Jindal’s prayer rally actually thought it was a good idea to have someone like Jacobs film a video promoting the event.
Apparently organizers of the event were so embarrassed by the association with Jacobs that they entirely removed her video from their page:
All of the other promotional videos filmed for the event remain on the organization’s Vimeo page — only the Jacobs video has been removed.
If organizers did, in fact, remove the Jacobs video in order to cover up her participation, we are not sure what good it did to do so days after the event has already been held, especially since Jacobs was far from the only radical voice associated with the rally. The damage has already been done.
