During last night’s “Truth & Liberty Coalition” webcast, right-wing pastor Andrew Wommack asserted that it certainly is strange how many conservatives who oppose “the liberal establishment” seem to mysteriously wind up dead.
Right-wing historian and commentator Bill Federer, who was the featured guest on the program, claimed that his campaign had been the victim of voter fraud when he ran for Congress in 2000 and that a lawyer working for his campaign wound up dead after contesting the results.
“There’s a lot of people who are conservatives that if they oppose the liberal establishment, they wind up dead,” Wommack replied. “Even Supreme Court justices.”
A favorite conspiracy theory on the right is that the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died suddenly in 2016, was smothered in his bed at a Texas resort. His death was ruled to have occurred due to “natural causes;” the justice reportedly suffered from a heart condition and diabetes. Although Scalia was 79 years old at the time of his death, right-wing figures, including President Trump, often refer to the jurist’s “untimely death.”
“Think of it,” responded Federer. “If your party platform is to kill unborn babies, is there anything that you can’t do? If you can mentally justify killing an innocent unborn baby, is there anything you can’t mentally justify?”
“I’ve heard stories—and I’m not going to mention any names, but it’s a very well-known person,” Wommak interjected with a less-than-subtle attack on the Clintons. “Apparently 45 people who have been associated with them have wound up dead. If I had 45 of my associates that wound up dead after doing business with me, somebody would be investigating me and yet they get by with this. It’s just a shame.”
