Trump-Loving Evangelical Pastor Calls New Zealand Mass Shooting a ‘False Flag’
Megachurch pastor and fervent Donald Trump defender Rodney Howard-Browne, went off on a crazed Twitter rant on Friday in which he said that the massacre of 49 Muslims in New Zealand was part of a “false flag” conspiracy meant to silence conservatives.
Howard-Browne, who was invited to the White House to pray for the president in 2017, argued that while there is no doubt that what happened in New Zealand is a horrific act, it’s “a false flag that will be blamed on conservatives when it’s all said and done!”
“Only a total nutjob lunatic, insane demonized freak goes into a building and kills people, it’s unacceptable on every level!” he added.
Shortly after calling the shooting a “false flag” attack, the pastor wrote about the right-wing conspiracy theory claiming that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg is actually dead.

He then retweeted right-wing polemicist Dinesh D’Souza, who tried to downplay the significance of the New Zealand massacre.
