Mat Staver, head of the Liberty Counsel and the lawyer for Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, claimed in a video message to his supporters that the media is using Satan’s tactic of “psychological warfare” against President Donald Trump.
Staver, a conservative Christian, offered no actual proof of his bizarre claims, which were noted by Right Wing Watch:
Every single day, the media airwaves are bombarding us with negative ideas, negative ideas with regards to President Trump, the administration, America and Judeo-Christian values. That is the tactic of the adversary.
Staver claimed the media was using the same tactics as the king of Assyria (in the Book of Isaiah) and Satan in the Garden of Eden by reporting “fake news”:
[The king of Assyria] tried to win the psychological battle before he engaged in the physical battle.
That is psychological warfare that has been practiced even since the Garden of Eden. You remember, Satan himself in the serpent, when he approached Eve, said, “Has God told you that you can’t eat of any of the trees in the garden?”
Well, that was a lie right there, that was fake news, because God didn’t command them not to eat of any tree, just one specific tree. That is the tactic of the Enemy. So today what we’re seeing is that same tactic played out in the area of politics and faith and values.
Staver then gushed praise on Trump, and claimed that one more conservative Supreme Court justice would overturn a woman’s legal right to an abortion:
We have the most pro-life, pro-religious freedom president in the history of America, the most pro-Israel president in the history of America, the most pro-American president in modern times, and all of that, including the future of the United States Supreme Court, we stand to lose.
We are one justice away from overturning the horrible decision of Roe v. Wade, the abortion decision, one justice away from reversing that decision of the Supreme Court regarding marriage.
Staver also used a line that fanatics and tyrants have used for centuries : “We are on God’s side, and with God all things are possible.
