Mark Taylor, the so-called “firefighter prophet” and right-wing conspiracy theorist resorted to his usual schtick of trying to shock people earlier today on Sheila Zilinksy’s podcast. This time he’s decided to attack Ruth Bader Ginsburg by claiming she “has got to be a pedophile.”
The ever-excitable Taylor, who recently linked Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) to Satan after she took to Twitter to criticize President Donald Trump for not doing enough to prevent mass shootings, to add more fuel to his prophecy bonfire, Right Wing Watch reports. This time he’s claiming God told him two former presidents will die because they criticized his exalted president, and added that Trump will ultimately replace five Supreme Court justices after three are brought down by scandal.
Taylor began by citing false reports that Chief Justice John Roberts somehow shares connections with Jeffrey Epstein who recently committed suicide while awaiting trial for sexual assault and the trafficking of minors. And despite this being false, Taylor still believes this could be the Supreme Court’s undoing.
“John Roberts, they said his name was in there as going to [Epstein’s island] twice,” Taylor said. “If he’s the one, you and I both know that little witch called RBG has been there multiple times…If John Roberts has been there, that means RBG has been there. If that’s the case then that might be the scandal God has been talking about; three would be taken down in a scandal. Who is the third one?”
Taylor doesn’t mention who the ever-popular “they” is here and cites no sources. But that doesn’t prevent him from taking this a step further as a way to malign Justice Ginsburg.
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg is really behind a lot of the abortion rulings,” Zilinksy said. “She’s a witch from the pit of hell.”
Of course, Taylor couldn’t resist commenting.
“She’s the one that ruled that 12-year-olds should be able to have sex, in her dissertation or whatever it was, so she’s got to be a pedophile,” he said.
But this analysis from Snopes quickly proves Taylor doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Ginsburg didn’t suggest this in the 1974 report that he’s referring to. Instead, she was discussing the use of gender-neutral pronouns.
It would be nice if people like Taylor would research credible sources before they attempt to malign people in their unrequited support for Trump. But then Trump maligns just about everyone who disagrees with him — immigrants, Blacks, the Antifa (by equating them with white nationalists) so maybe Taylor is just parroting his idol.
The video below features more of Taylor’s off-the-wall ideas.
