During his recent appearance on Sheila Zilinsky’s podcast, Mark Taylor, a radical right-wing conspiracy theorist and so-called “firefighter prophet,” claimed that God had told him that if President Trump doesn’t start carrying out mass arrests of high-profile Democratic politicians by January, “patriots will rise up” and “take matters into their own hands” by murdering them in the streets.
Reiterating a warning he delivered last year, Taylor claimed that the window to avoid such violence is rapidly closing.
“What the Lord has shown me is that if they wait too long,” he said, “it could be another Mogadishu or another Benghazi, where the patriots will rise up and say, ‘Enough is enough,’ and they will take matters into their own hands and they will drag their dead bodies through the streets. They will go to these politicians’ houses or offices and drag them out.”
“The people are not asking for justice, they are demanding it, so the government has to act,” Taylor added. “They need to make probably one or two high-level arrests, high-profile arrests, perp walk them on national television so that people will see that justice is going to be done. They have got to make the arrests before January if they are going to make them this year, because if [Trump] arrests anyone after January when campaign season starts, it’s going to make it look like he’s just arresting those that oppose him. So they have a window of time between now and the end of the year to make these arrests. That is what God has shown me as far as this timeline.”
