After the all-liberal panel claimed Georgia’s election security law passed in 2021 was causing “voter suppression,” despite record early voting turnout, the MSNBC political analyst accused the GOP of being “anti-Christian.”
“I would also say, I use these words carefully, but I started saying it more and more, there is an anti-Christian theme in today’s Republican Party,” Jolly said.
Jolly urged Democrats to “take back that faith argument” and attack Republicans as having values “antithetical” to the Christian faith.
“This whole ‘what would Jesus do’ constituency, absolutely not. It is adverse to everything that Jesus would do. I actually think what Democrats should do is call Republicans on their hypocrisy base rooted in faith, and take back that faith argument from a party today who is acting with values antithetical to the Christian and faith-based Evangelical movement.“
After officially leaving the GOP in 2018, Jolly has since found a home on left-leaning networks to attack his former party. In 2019, Jolly compared conservative Parkland student Kyle Kashuv to a mass shooter, despite Kashuv being a survivor of a mass shooting himself. Last fall, Jolly joined liberal analysts bashing parents protesting critical race theory curriculum in their schools as “real threats” and violent “maniacs.”
Jolly’s comments come just a few weeks after the draft Supreme Court opinion on the fate of Roe v. Wade was leaked, and journalists were warning Republicans wanted to make the United States a Christian “theocracy.”
Meanwhile, Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Catholic faith drew headlines this week, as she was barred from Communion by San Francisco’s archbishop over her pro-choice stance.
In response, Pelosi went on MSNBC to knock the Catholic Church for not barring Catholics in support of the death penalty, from Communion.
