‘People Will Be Killed If Trump Is Not Reelected’: Evangelical Pastor Jim Bakker Issues Dire Warning
Disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker, who was found guilty of stealing $3.4 million in donations and accused of rape by Jessica Hahn and bribed her with $279,000 payment with the money coming from funds by unsuspected donors of his ministry, has been quietly rebuilding his empire after serving nearly five years of a 45-year prison sentence. Along the way, he has been spreading the craziest conspiracy theories.
In a sermon recently flagged by Right Wing Watch, Bakker told his followers that if Trump doesn’t get reelected in 2020, that “leaders of the gospel and the political conservative leaders” are going to be murdered.
“I’m going to say something I probably shouldn’t say,” he continued, which is about the only part of his diatribe most people would actually agree with.
“What’s coming next, if we keep losing, you’re going to see the leaders of the church and the leaders of the gospel and the political conservative leaders that are powerful, you are going to see them suddenly die, suddenly killed. Suddenly as they were driving, suddenly as they were in a boat, suddenly in an airplane … You’re going to see it one after another.
God spoke this to me years ago what would happen near the end and I believe we’re in that time. There’s so desperate — this is life and death. This is the hatred of murder is in the country.”

Who is going to kill them? Presumably AOC and the other women in Congress who Trump supporters chant “send them back” at rallies about? Dark lord Nancy Pelosi? The mainstream media? Your guess is as good as ours!
