A Mississippi Tea Party official opened a meeting this week with a prayer calling on God to “be violent against” establishment Republicans.
“We ask for your blessing upon the conservatives in this state, that they might stand strong and firm,” said the state’s Tea Party chairman, Roy Nicholson. “Father, we even ask for you to bless our enemies, and Lord they are truly our enemies that head the Republican Party and the whole political establishment.”
“We’re asking, Father, for two things,” he said. “We’re asking, Father, that you would expose them, set division amongst them, set them one against another, bring confusion and fear into their camp, into their thinking, for the purpose of pulling them down, for casting them down out of their high offices and reducing them, Lord, to having no power in this state.”
“So, Lord, that you might raise up and seek the righteous in the positions of power that this state might once more be a state that honors you in all that it does,” Nicholson concluded.
