Theologian rains hell on Sarah Sanders and evangelicals defending Trump’s immigrant kid snatching: ‘Pimps of evil’

Published

Appearing on MSNBC, theologian and former evangelist Franklin Schaeffer lambasted White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders and so-called Christian evangelicals who are looking the other way while President Donald Trump is allowing the children of immigrants to be torn from their families and placed in detention centers.

Speaking with AM Joy host Joy Reid, Schaeffer was unsparing inhis criticism of Trump-supporting Christians and Republicans, harshly calling them “Jesus-hating.”

“You know, what’s going on today is very clearly giving us a dividing line in our culture, and I would just put it this way,” Schaeffer began. “Christians who still support Trump who is separating mothers from babies are now condoning a form of child abuse,”

“As a Christian, I can just say I can’t think of anything that would be more Jesus-hating. this isn’t just Jesus-disobeying, this is Jesus-hating,” he continued.

“So, there are going to be repercussions for the Republican Party that has gone along, like pimps of evil, with this president,” he exclaimed. “They are now defending, as Sarah Huckabee does, the indefensible. Listen, these are not illegal immigrants. These are the children of people seeking asylum as Jews did in the 1930s from Nazi Germany.”

“Can you imagine if we would look back at that history, if Jewish children had been ripped from their parent’s arms arriving from this country seeking asylum and separated from their families?” he asked. “It would be right up there with the incarceration and imprisonment of Japanese people.”

“These are exclusively the children of asylum seekers,” he added. “This is the child of the person by the side of the road in the parable of the Good Samaritan. This is the person who is unwanted and unloved — but they are asylum seekers.”

Trump campaign ramps up smear campaign on Obama’s ebola czar for exposing the president’s COVID-19 bumbling: report

Published

on

Stung by a highly effective video he made for Vice President Joe Biden criticizing Donald Trump's response to the growing COVID-19 pandemic, the communications team working on the president's re-election is going after President Barack Obama's former ebola czar, Ron Klain.

Klain, who is now becoming a fixture on cable news, took part in a video ad touting the campaign of Biden, and used his expertise to rip into the Trump administration's efforts to deal with the national health crisis. That put a target on his back as the president's 2020 campaign team is trying to stem the damage that threatens the president's chances of being re-elected in November.

Why the novel coronavirus became a social media nightmare

Published

on

The biggest reputational risk Facebook and other social media companies had expected in 2020 was fake news surrounding the US presidential election. Be it foreign or domestic in origin, the misinformation threat seemed familiar, perhaps even manageable.

The novel coronavirus, however, has opened up an entirely different problem: the life-endangering consequences of supposed cures, misleading claims, snake-oil sales pitches and conspiracy theories about the outbreak.

So far, AFP has debunked almost 200 rumors and myths about the virus, but experts say stronger action from tech companies is needed to stop misinformation and the scale at which it can be spread online.
