Jew Hater ‘Pastor’ Rick Wiles Blames Coronavirus on Jews For Not Following Jesus

Antisemitic and conspiracy broadcaster and Christian pastor Rick Wiles said earlier this week that the coronavirus outbreak is spreading to synagogues, and is a punishment from God because Jews don’t follow Jesus.

“Stay out of those things, there’s a plague in them. God’s dealing with false religions,” he said on Wednesday night on TruNews, which he founded. “God’s dealing with people who oppose his son, Jesus Christ. He’s dealing with the forces of Antichrist. And there’s a plague moving upon the earth right now, and the people that are going into the synagogues are coming out of the synagogues with the virus.”

“It’s spreading in Israel through the synagogues,” he continued, before blaming the Jewish state’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Let me tell you Mr. Netanyahu, let me tell you ADL: God. God is spreading it in your synagogues. You’re under judgment because you oppose his son, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Wiles also claimed that the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States “started” earlier this month at the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, D.C. While a number of people who attended the conference were later diagnosed with virus, both the first case and outbreak in the United States were reported in Washington state. The pandemic started in Wuhan, China.

Wiles has a history of making antisemitic remarks, including blaming the so-called “Jewish mafia” and “Jewish lobby” and calling Jews “deceivers” and “domestic enemies.” In November, Wiles called the effort to impeach U.S. President Donald Trump a “Jew coup.”

TruNews was granted press credentials via a third party by the Trump administration to cover the World Economic Forum in January in Davos, Switzerland. Senators and the White House Correspondents’ Association, which consists of and represents reporters covering 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, have sought answers from the White House as to why the outlet was approved.
