Robert Jeffress, a Texas pastor and “spiritual adviser” to President Trump, according to Baptist World Global, appeared on Fox & Friends over the weekend, where he adopted the performative partisan anger that was on display last week by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Jeffress called the contentious confirmation process “a battle between good and evil, between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness,” and said the hearings would encourage conservative Christians to turn out in the 2018 midterm elections.
Look, I have never seen conservative Christians as angry as they are right now over this debacle. Look, they realize now—conservative Christians—that the left is willing to do whatever it takes to cram their liberal agenda down the throats of Americans, including destroying the foundation of our legal system, the presumption of innocence.
And look, make no mistake about it, the reason the left hates Kavanaugh is not because of his judicial philosophy, it’s not because of what he may or may not have done to Dr. Ford. The Democrats don’t care one thing about Dr. Ford. They are afraid that if he is confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, he may chip away at Roe v. Wade and diminish the number of babies being murdered every year in the womb through abortion.
Conservative Christians see this. They know this is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats. It’s a battle between good and evil, between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness, and that’s why they’re going to turn out in the 2018 midterms.
Fox, of course, was built on the kind of angry partisan diatribes dished out by the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. Fox host Jeanine Pirro, another Trump booster, used her Saturday show to rail against Democrats—”or should I say demon rats.” Pirro called Dr. Christine Blasey Ford “a lovely lady” but said she is “nothing more than a puppet on the string of Democratic politics” who was used by Democrats intent on the “crucifixion” of Kavanaugh. “This is about people desperate to win at all costs,” she declared, slamming Sen. Jeff Flake as a “wimp” for “buckling” and calling for an FBI investigation of the allegations made against Kavanaugh.
