During his “Sunday Morning Meeting Time” broadcast yesterday, right-wing commentator and radical conspiracy theorist Chris McDonald weighed in on the mass shootings that took place in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton,Ohio, over the weekend, asserting that they were part of a “deep state game” to eliminate the right of American’s to worship freely.
“There is a spiritual war over this country,” he said. “When you see things that take place like you saw last night in El Paso and Dayton, it’s nothing but the devil. The guns didn’t do this; people did this full of the devil and they were demon-possessed and these people are being used as pawns in this elite, deep state game to control this country, to take the guns away, to take any freedom away that we’ve got.”
“Listen to me,” McDonald added. “It’s not just about the guns, it’s about your ability to worship. It’s all tied together, because if they can take your guns away, they can take your ability to worship God away and they are trying to do everything in one swoop.”
McDonald went on to rail against “brainless” and “demon-possessed” politicians who are calling for gun control or criticizing the president for his role in promoting white nationalist ideology. Finally, he baselessly claimed that nobody is talking about the shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival last month “because that shooting was tied to possibly an Islamic jihadist attack.”
