Vanderbilt Professor: Hillary Clinton is Proof 'Satanism is on the Rise'

FORT MILL, SC — Dr. Carol M. Swain, professor of law at Vanderbilt University, argued that Hillary Clinton is proof that Satanism is on the rise in America, in an interview with PJ Media on Saturday evening. She also discussed her university's decision to honor Wicca as a religion while denigrating Christianity, and how the Black Lives Matter movement is using the suffering of black people to promote a Marxist agenda.

"I would argue that Satanism itself is on the rise in the country, and I think that that's well documented," Swain declared. She argued that the deceptive tactics associated with Lucifer have infiltrated the country's political discourse, and traced that back to the leftist professor Saul Alinsky.

It's just a fact that Saul Alinsky dedicated this book Rules for Radicals to Lucifer, and I find it significant that we have, you know, world leaders, our president [Barack Obama] for example, and one of the major presidential candidates [Hillary Clinton] who saw Saul Alinsky as a mentor. And many activists, leftists, they view Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals almost as a Bible.

It's all about the way he frames it, taking power from the haves and redistributing that power to the have-nots. He advocates deception, manipulation, infiltration, and so when we see our political candidates telling lies, we shouldn't be surprised because the Bible tells us that Satan is the father of lies.

Swain even noted that "Lucifer has his own TV show," which airs on the Fox network. "So people are celebrating Satan in the way that many of us Christians celebrate God."

To be fair, Clinton is not a "Satanist" in the sense that she worships Lucifer or necessarily rejects God — despite her support for abortion and same sex marriage, she is a Methodist after all. But Swain has a point in saying that Clinton learned her political tricks from Saul Alinsky, and to the extent that Alinsky dedicated his book to the subversive tactics of Lucifer, Clinton's political heritage does arguably come from Satan.

The Vanderbilt professor also discussed how the occult became established on her campus. "A few years ago, I believe it was 2011 — the same year that ... a rule was imposed on Christian groups that resulted in about half of them leaving the campus as officially recognized groups — we recognized Wicca," Swain recalled.

The professor explained that "for me, as a faculty member, I have to respect their high holy day, which is Halloween." October 31 is "treated the same as Christmas, Rosh Hashanah," and other religious holidays.

"So they persecute Christians while other religions are being honored and treated with the respect that we don't enjoy," Swain added. "There's a double standard."

Swain, a black woman who grew up in poverty, dropped out of college to become a single mother, but pulled herself up to become a college professor, went on to attack the "Black Lives Matter" movement.
