Right-wing pastor E.W. Jackson said on his radio program ‘The Awakening’ that former President Barack Obama and other Democratic leaders need an exorcism because they are “demon-possessed.”
“I’m very serious about this,” Jackson said. “We’ve got to cast the devil out of these folks. I’m serious. We’ve got to cast the devil out of these folks because—I really believe this—these folks are demon-possessed. They are demon-possessed. They are controlled by the devil. They don’t know it, but they are, which is why they can say some of the things that you’ve heard them say.”
Jackson reserved significant ire for Obama’s stance on marriage equality:
“[Obama] was the first president to ever speak before this homosexual group [the Human Rights Campaign] and he went before them and he said he was looking forward to the day when we would all admire same-sex relationships, we should admire them. Now the only person I can think of who can come up with that stuff is the devil, because that’s devilish. That’s demonic.”
In recent days, Jackson has taken aim at Obama and others, suggesting that they conspired to drop the federal charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett, who was accused of staging a hate crime to further his career prospects, and that Obama and Hillary Clinton are guilty of “unlawful spying” against President Donald Trump.
How did @JussieSmollett beat the rap in Chicago? known for integrity: Capone, Valentine’s Day Massacre, Daley, corrupt elections, Giancana, Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Jeremiah Wright, Obama, Rahm. Great leaders. Great justice. Right! https://t.co/58yScZ5pjQ
