Pro-Trump commentators: The Democratic Party is possessed by evil spirits — ‘they’re not human anymore’

During a segment on The Eric Metaxas Show this Monday, the pro-Trump host and election conspiracy theorist interviewed right-wing Catholic activist John Zmirak, who said that Christians and conservatives are currently engaged in “spiritual warfare” against the Democratic Party.

“We are now in the Normandy landing of spiritual warfare,” Zmirak said. “The Democratic Party is possessed by preternatural evil. It is not a human institution any more. It is an instrument of wicked spirits.”

‘This is demonic, our enemies are demonic. There’s no turning the other cheek,” he continued, before Metaxas chimed in and clarified that they’re not saying Democrats are themselves demons.

“We’re saying they’re being used by demons,” Metaxas said. “And we need to understand that at the heart of all this, this is a spiritual battle. There’s no other way to make sense of it.”
