Barber delivered a powerful history lesson, explaining that Trump is not a problem, but a symptom of the bigotry and cruelty of the richest and most powerful who counterattacked against the first Reconstruction after the Civil War.
Barber then read a passage from Ezekiel 22: God was angry because priests covering up for politicians who were devouring the poor.
“Your politicians have become like wolves — prowling and killing and taking whatever they want.
And your preachers are covering up for the politicians by pretending to have received visions and revelations; they say this is what God says and I God have not said a thing. And because your politicians are like wolves, and your preachers are covering up for your politicians; extortion is rife; robbery is epidemic; the poor and the needy are being abused; and the immigrants and the strangers are being kicked around at will with no access to justice.”
