A GOP candidate for a U.S. House of Representatives seat from South Carolina is attacking Democrats as being a "Satan liberal evil communist socialist" party, and proclaiming America is "absolutely" in a spiritual war.

Pastor Mark Burns is a "fanatical Christian nationalist," according to Right Wing Watch (tweet below) and a televangelist who was dubbed "Donald Trump's Top Pastor." Like the former President he is wielding his Twitter account like a sword.

He announced his run one week ago Wednesday:

Days later he was calling himself a fighter "bold enough to deal with the radical Marxist policies that's destroying our country!"

There are no radical Marxist policies in the U.S.

After attacking "RINOs," Burns told anti-vaxx conspiracy theorist and streaming talk show host Stew Peters Republicans have to stop letting the "Satan liberal evil communist socialist government called the Democrat Party overtake this amazing country we call the United States of America."

In 2017 Burns was one of Roy Moore's defenders, insisting the nine allegations of sexual assault, child sexual assault, attempted rape, and inappropriate behavior with teenaged girls were false.

"We're letting these communists run our country by simply letting it happen," Burns told Peters.

"We've been too quiet," Burns claimed, falsely insisting that Democrats are a "weak minority of people."

He also falsely insisted America "is a God nation. This is a Christian nation. This nation belongs to the great I Am, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords. This nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles."

In 2016, as NCRM reported, Burns admitted to "overstating" significant details of his biography, including that he serves in the Army Reserve, holds a bachelor's degree and is working toward a master's.
