Televangelist Jim Bakker has warned that Christians would begin a second civil war if President Trump were ever impeached.
I predict if it happens there will be a Civil War in the US, he said on the Jim Bakker Show in May, in a segment highlighted by Right Wing Watch that recently began making the rounds once again. The Christians will finally come out of the shadows, because were going to be shut up permanently if were not careful, and God says that faith without works is death, we have to do things.
The televangelists proclamation is one of many in a series of predictions this year by far-right media figures who warn that there will soon be another civil war. Last week longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone warned that there would be a violent, armed response if Trump was impeached.
You will have a spasm of violence in this country, an insurrection like youve never seen, he announced. The people will not stand for impeachment. A politician that votes for it will endanger their own life.
There will be violence on both sides, he added. I will make this clear. Im not advocating violence, but Im predicting it.
According to MediaMatters, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was later told by Donald Trump that the president really liked Stones comments. The radio host has often bragged about how he has influence over the President and repeatedly said hes communicated with him on certain topics.
An August 17 poll by the Public Religion Research Institute showed that nearly 40 percent of Americans support impeachment up from 30 percent in February. That includes three quarters of Democrats but only 7 percent of Republicans. The survey was conducted before the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Jim Bakker has been dogged by scandals since the 1980s, and was found guilty of fraud charges in 1988. The preacher sold thousands of Lifetime Memberships for luxury hotel rooms at Christian theme park Heritage USA, but only one hotel was ever completed. He was convicted of 23 counts of fraud and one count of conspiracy and served five years in prison.
He was also accused of allegedly sexually assaulting actress and model Jessica Hahn when she served as a secretary to the Praise the Lord Club (PTL), and allegedly spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to buy her silence. Bakker was never charged or convicted of any crime related to the matter.
Since 2012, Bakker has been selling survival gear on his shows website, in preparation for the End Times. Items previously included the $800 Bakkers Dozen Emergency Fuel Buckets, meant to help followers survive through the Apocalypse.
According to Newsweek Bakker still owes the IRS $6 million in unpaid taxes, all of which stem from his years building up the PTL brand.
I don’t normally, but he is right on this.
I tell people this all the time. If Trump is convicted of anything less than a high crime I’ll take it as a coup and so will about 1/3-1/2 of the voters. Armed people will march on Washingtonian DC.
And make life very uncomfortable for leftists easier to reach locally.
The American Left is pushing for violence.
They should be careful or they might get it.
First sentence is a lie, my that’s quick. Pretty sure he didn’t say Christians would START it.
What do you expect from Progressives?
Progressives are always threatening civil war. In the 60s they said that the urban riots would continue to escalate until welfare payments were increased. It was progressives who invented the bete noire of the “superpredator” who would slaughter innocent people without conscience.
Although they have toned down their language a bit, wait until some of the entitlement programs are threatened. They’ll drag out the hoary scare story of urban riots spilling into the suburbs all over again.
Nah. Recent events have demonstrated that “good white folks” will run and hide in the closet with their keyboard and start virtue signaling just as fast as the most tatted up, nose pierced SJW Lesbian. At just the WORD “Nazi”.
These tele evangels..
But, he is right on this one. Bought time for the rest to jump up for attention.
Shut off the power to the cities, where most of this crap is going on, and the war will be over in a short time. Hell, they’d kill each other in the food and water riots.
Look what happened in New Orleans and a little in Houston during/after the storms.
>> So the Left thinks we listen to Jim Bakker? <<
Never “listened.” But when Tammy was young and beautiful, I’d sometimes watch their ahow with the audio on mute.
It would be a coup d’état, and it would trigger civil war.
