On his “The Awakening” radio program on Friday, right-wing pastor E.W. Jackson claimed that left-wing activists would gladly murder Christian conservatives if given the opportunity.
“I really believe this with all my heart,” Jackson said. “I’m serious. I believe that if the right circumstances presented itself, people on the left would kill us. I’m not saying all of them, but many of them would kill us because their hatred is so deep, it is so profound, it is so toxic that I think they would rationalize it to themselves that the world would be a better place [without Christians] … and so, in killing them, we do the world a favor.”
Jackson, who was the 2013 Republican Party nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia, claimed that, by contrast, Christians could never even dream of doing anything to harm their enemies.
“We know we as Christians, we couldn’t do that,” he said. “We just wouldn’t. We couldn’t, we wouldn’t … We don’t want to kill anybody, we don’t want to hurt anybody, we don’t want to harm anybody.”
“I could not see myself walking up to somebody on the left or some homosexual activist and hitting them or pushing them or touching them or grabbing them in some way,” Jackson added. “I couldn’t see myself doing that for anything in the world … because God cannot be glorified by inglorious means.”
Allow us to remind Jackson of his comment in 2017, when he said that if he ever saw a LGBTQ activist handing his child pro-gay literature, he “would really need the grace of God not to jump on that person and try to beat them into the ground.”
Jackson said that he recalled thinking that “what they are doing is really dangerous because if I, as a parent, went to pick up my child and some gay person were bent over talking to my child, handing my child a piece of literature encouraging my child to be gay and to engage in sexual activity period, regardless; man, I would really need the grace of God not to attack that person.”
“I’m serious,” he continued. “I’m just being truthful. I would really need the grace of God not to jump on that person and try to beat them into the ground. I mean, that’s my baby, that’s my child and you’re going to step between me and my child and tell my child something that I object to and act like you have a right to do it? We would have a problem, a very serious problem.”
“If they continue this,” Jackson warned, “at some point, some parent whose child they are approaching is going to walk up and it’s going to get violent.”
