President Donald Trump recently urged evangelical leaders this week to get out the vote ahead of upcoming midterm elections and warned of “violence” by opponents if they fail to do so.
President Trump made the dire warning at a White House dinner Monday evening attended by dozens of conservative Christian pastors, ministers and supporters of his administration.
President Trump was stressing the stakes in November when he warned that, if Democrats win, they “will overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently,” according to attendees and audio of his closed-door remarks obtained by media outlets, including The New York Times. He specifically mentioned self-described Antifa, or anti-fascist groups, describing them as violent people, of which he is correct by the actions of the radical leftists in the groups pertaining to the destruction of public and private property since President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The fears of President Trump could be akin to fearing what socialists and communists did to Russia, turning it into a totalitarian, atheistic society where not just Christians but all religious persons were persecuted, and the economy was primarily owned by the government under the principle of revolutionary progress due to over-regulation by lovers of big government. Many members and affiliates with anti-fascist groups tend to believe such suppression is justified as they are composed of staunch atheists and irreligionists who show their desire to attack human rights and disturb the peace.
