THE Black Lives Matter movement is a “cultural” virus in the United States, according to conservative pastor EW Jackson.
Jackson appeared on radio show The Awakening and said, “Covid is a medical problem and a disease problem that is going to run its course.”

The black pastor also criticized Black Lives Matter for having different reactions to shootings that involved police officers and claimed criticism of law enforcement might make some officers leave the police force, according to Newsweek.
Jackson also said the organization is “out of sync with the word of God” and doesn’t actually care about the people they advocate for.
Specifically, he claimed that Patrisse Cullors, a co-founder of BLM, is trying to undermine America.

He pointed to her views on Marxism, calling her a “trained Marxist,” and said on the radio show that the United States should consider anyone who is a Marxist or communist a “threat to our national security.”
Jackson was the Republican primary candidate for the United States Senate in Virginia in the 2012 election and tried to get the nomination again in 2018. He has run for other political offices as well.

The pastor has been known for being somewhat flippant about coronavirus in the past.
In a March sermon shared via video by “The Friendly Atheist,” Jackson said, “I’m not gonna get the coronavirus. I’m not gonna give anybody the coronavirus, cause I can’t get it, cause I’ve talked to God about it, and I’ve taken my vaccine, and my vaccine is Psalm 91! I am free from that mess.”
He then announced in a Facebook Live sermon in November that he and his wife had tested positive for Covid-19.
He made the remark during his Wisdom Meditation stream via Facebook in January.
“Georgians who are listening to me or watching me right now, we will be cursing our nation if we send those two demonically possessed people to the United States Senate,” he warned.
