(JTA) — The effort to impeach President Donald Trump is a “Jew coup,” a Florida pastor known for his antisemitic conspiracy theories said.
Rick Wiles also said during a broadcast Friday on his TruNews YouTube channel that the Jews will “kill millions of Christians.” His fundamentalist Christian platform regularly releases antisemitic, Islamophobic and homophobic videos. Representatives of TruNews have attended White House news conferences and have been called on to ask Trump questions.
Wiles called his Friday broadcast “Jew Coup: Seditious Jews Orchestrating Trump Impeachment Lynching” and spent an hour and a half attacking various Jewish members of Congress, the media, and the government.
“That’s the way the Jews work, they are deceivers, they plot, they lie, they do whatever they have to do to accomplish their political agenda,” Wiles said on what he calls the “Godcast.”
“This ‘impeach Trump’ effort is a Jew coup and the American people better wake up to it really fast because this thing is moving now toward a vote in the House and then a trial in the Senate. We could have a trial before Christmas. This country could be in civil war at Christmastime. Members of the U.S. military are going to have to take a stand just like they did in the 1860s with the Civil War. They are going to have to decide: are you fighting for the North or the South?”
YouTube banned the channel following the Friday rant.
“This is a coup led by Jews to overthrow the constitutionally elected president of the United States and it’s beyond removing Donald Trump, it’s removing you and me. That’s what’s at the heart of it. … I am going to tell you, Church of Jesus Christ, you’re next. Get it through your head! They’re coming for you. There will be a purge. That’s the next thing that happens when Jews take over a country, they kill millions of Christians.”
