Trump’s megachurch pastor goes off on Jewish Democrats: ‘I will curse those who curse you’

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump accused Jews who vote for Democrats of being disloyal to Israel. The president’s comments conjured the anti-Semitic trope of Jewish dual loyalty. Ironically, the president has claimed that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is an anti-Semite.

Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress is one of Trump’s closest spiritual advisors. The pastor doubled down on the president’s comments in an appearance on Fox News radio show, Patheos reports.

“And the question he (Trump) is raising about how can American Jews support Democrats who support people like [Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib], despicable representatives of our country who are antisemitic to the core, how can Jewish Americans support that?” he said.

“It makes no sense for those Jewish Americans not to support a president and a party that stands for Israel like Donald J. Trump does…” he added.

Jeffress also slammed Bernie Sanders for pushing back on Trump’s comments. “I am a proud Jewish person, and I have no concerns about voting Democratic,” Sanders said. “And in fact, I intend to vote for a Jewish man to become the next president of the United States.”

“… I mean it’s obvious Bernie Sanders is completely illiterate when it comes to what the Old Testament teaches about Israel,” Jeffress said.

For context, Jeffress quoted the part of the Old Testament about multi-generational curses.

“You know, God said to Abraham in Genesis 12, “I will bless those who bless you and your descendants and I will curse those who curse you and your descendants,” he said.

Accused child molester Roy Moore defends Brett Kavanaugh: ‘I too was the object of false allegations’

Published

Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
