On Wednesday’s edition of the 700 Club, host Pat Robertson started out by dabbling in Michael Flynn conspiracy theories, wondering if Barack Obama and a cabal of Democrats engineered the downfall of Trump’s ex-National Security Advisor.
Robertson claimed incorrectly that intelligence agents specifically targeted Flynn and not Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyack.
Then, like a Christian version of North Korean state television, he cited Psalm 2, which reads, “The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed.” According to Robertson, Trump’s opponents are actually opponents of God.
“I think, somehow, the Lord’s plan is being put in place for America and these people are not only revolting against Trump, they’re revolting against what God’s plan is for America,” Robertson said. ”
“These other people have been trying to destroy America. These left-wingers and so-called progressives are trying to destroy the country that we love and take away the freedoms they love. They want collectivism. They want socialism.”
“What we’re looking at is free markets and freedom from this terrible, overarching bureaucracy,” he continued. “They want to fight as much as they can but I think the good news is the Bible says, “He that sits in the heavens will laugh them to scorn,” and I think that Trump’s someone on his side that is a lot more powerful than the media.”
