Last week, in the wake of the mass shooting that critically injured Republican Rep. Steve Scalise, right wing commentator and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson proclaimed that Democrats are the “children of Satan.”
His comments were in reaction to reports that Democrats had gathered to pray for the victims of the shooting.
According to Peterson, Democrats hate God, therefore their prayers are “phony.”
This is not real. What are the Democrats praying for? The Democrats are not of God. All of a sudden when Scalise gets shot, when they hear about the shooting, all the children of Satan are going to come together and pray? Please!
The Democrats don’t love God. They could care less about God. Their father is Satan and that’s the reality.
Democrats are not about morality, they’re not about love, they don’t care about anything but politics and power, which is why they are trying to corrupt the nation by supporting things like marriage equality and transgender rights and everything that’s bad.
Why would you want to pray with the children of Satan? They serve a different God than you. That’s reality.
This from a black man who insists that racism does not exist.
What in the hell is wrong with this guy and the people who swallow this bullsh*t? He speaks of love but preaches hate. Like so many on the right, he accuses Democrats of being immoral. But the reality is this: Republicans are the ones who want to deny marriage equality. Republicans are the ones who want to kick millions off of health insurance so the wealthy can enjoy more tax cuts. Republicans are the ones who want to ramp up fossil fuel extraction and further despoil an already beleaguered planet in the throes of rapid global climate change. Republicans are the ones who want to cut back on social programs that serve the poor, the mentally ill and our military veterans. Republicans are the ones who want to deny social services to gay families. Republicans are the ones who are turning a blind eye to a president who gives away classified intel to the Russians.
A person like Jesse Lee Peterson calling Democrats the children of Satan is tantamount to the pot calling the kettle black.
