Dobbs gives Marianne Williamson props for calling out ‘mean’ leftists

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs praised Democrat presidential candidate Marianne Williamson this week for recognizing how “mean” the left is.

“I know this sounds naïve, I did not think the left was so mean. I did not think the left lied like this. I thought the right did that. I thought we were better,” Williamson recently told the New Yorker.

“Not so,” Dobbs said in response on his show. Next to him was a graphic of Williamson along with the words “seeing the light.”

Dobbs is in agreement with Williamson about the ruthlessness of her Democrat competitors.

“She’s in a race with cannibals,” he said at one point.

“I’m very happy for her to have learned something out of this election because she’s obviously not going to go any place as a viable candidate,” “Lou Dobbs Tonight” guest and former Reagan White House official Ed Rollins said of Williamson.

Dobbs went on to say that 2020 is shaping up to be a race all about “party politics.” He said Republicans are playing the part of “patsies” while Democrats are running on a platform filled with “venom, vigor, and viciousness.”

“Republicans basically see politics as an avocation, sort of a hobby,” Rollins said. “Democrats … see it as a lifelong occupation in which they’re going to change [things] and change [them] radically.”

Williamson has never quite fit in with the field she is running against. With a background as an author and philanthropist, Williamson has never come to debates with the prepared political lines of her competitors. This has led to many moments and quotes from the “spiritual guru” to go viral on social media.

It has also led her to break party lines on several occasions. With many on the left mocking prayers offered to victims of Hurricane Dorian, Williamson took to Twitter to defend the act of praying.

“Prayer is a power of the mind, and it is neither bizarre nor unintelligent. People of faith belong in the Democratic Party, and will be necessary to the effort if we’re to win in 2020,” she tweeted.

She later specifically targeted the “secularized left.”

“I was born and raised in Texas so I’ve seen it. Millions of people today are praying that Dorian turn away from land, and treating those people with mockery or condescension because they believe it could help is part of how the overly secularized Left has lost lots of voters,” Williamson tweeted.

Williamson’s frustrations are understandable. She has recently been on the defensive from Dems trying to make her out to be a kook in an attempt to eliminate her from the race.

“Misrepresentations of my work are in high gear this morning, so just in case it need be said: I am not anti-vaxx. I am pro-science & medicine. I’ve never suggested to anyone they should pray away their illness & not see a doctor. I’ve never blamed a victim nor fat-shamed anyone,” she recently tweeted.

She also pushed back against accusations that she told AIDS victims that they did not need to take medication.

“If you ever read an article saying that I told people with AIDS they didn’t have to take their medicine because positive thinking would cure it; or that I ever told people who got sick that negative thinking caused it; please know both those things are complete and utter lies,” she tweeted.
