Jesse Lee Peterson: ‘White Savior’ Trump ‘Reminds Me Of Jesus Christ’

Far-right activist and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson welcomed President Trump’s suggestion that he would “send in the Feds” to counter crime in Chicago, telling Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday that Trump is “going to clean out the drugs and the crime and the thugs” from “urban areas,” making him the “white savior” for African Americans, sort of like Jesus Christ.

Peterson made the comments after offering his standard assessment of President Obama, which is that Obama’s mother “hated her own color, she hated whiteness, and so she turned Barack Obama against America and against white people,” which is why he “dealt with America in an evil way.”

I was thinking last night, Donald Trump is going to go into the urban areas, to Chicago, and even if he has to bring the feds in to do it, he’s going to clean out the drugs and the crime and the thugs so that the good folks can finally start growing and living. I’ve noticed that over the past 60 years, not one black man—or black woman, but especially black man—has been able to do that. From the last 50 years or so, maybe 60, the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright Jr., the black politicians and civil rights leaders, even Barack Obama, who had the power of the United States behind him, could have gone in with the national guard, with the police department, and cleaned out that mess so the good people can live, but he did not do it.

It takes a white man to do it, Steve, and Donald Trump will do this. So I’m wondering, what is wrong with black men that they are not able to go in and clean up their own neighborhoods, put their own families back together? It takes a white man to do it, and it’s the white man that they hate. They hate this white man and he’s the one that’s going to save them. Reminds me of Jesus Christ, how he came and made it possible for us to return to the Father, and he was hated for doing that as well, and they took him out. Donald Trump is the white savior.
