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.

Swain pointed out that a group of Black Lives Matter activists released their full manifesto in the recent past, and rather than addressing the real concerns of the black community, their demands focus on socialism.

“If you google Black Lives Matter … if you click on that link, you’ll see the Marxist goals, and it’s all about the state and the violence of the state and it’s very little about the conditions that are actually affecting African Americans,” the Vanderbilt professor declared. “And so, you know it’s about black people, their suffering, and they end up being used to further a cause that’s much bigger, and it is the Marxist socialism, cultural Marxism.”


Swain argued that the official platform of “Black Lives Matter” actually “takes us back to the same failed Marxist socialist goals,” which she described as “very dangerous for our society.” She claimed that “most of the people that are attracted to it, the everyday people, they have no idea what they’re involved with.”

In a previous interview with PJ Media, Swain explained that she wrote a book on race in 2004 which she called “prophetic.” In The New White Nationalism in America: Its Challenge to Integration, she outlined many conditions which were “converging to create a devil’s brew for racial unrest: liberal immigration, black crime, racial preferences discriminating against non-minorities, globalization and the loss of jobs, multiculturalism, and political correctness.” She said some of these legitimate policy issues were not being addressed by mainstream politicians.

Then, when President Obama took office, her warnings started coming true. She argued that “a lot of the behaviors that black people engage in, their choices fuel racial division,” but she also said that white people are not blameless. “They’re not holding black people and minorities to the same standards of conduct they would hold white people to — that is a form of racism.”

Today, “in the black community, things are worse off than ever before.” Swain noted that there are some communities where more black babies are being aborted than being born — “that’s genocide.”


The professor did not outline exact solutions to the racial divisions, but she did argue that Americans need to see the police as human beings and partner with them. “There is a rise in violent crimes and homicides and I think that is a direct reflection of the police pulling back in some of those areas where they are going to run into mobs of people who oppose police.”

Swain’s remarks serve as a clarion call to be on the lookout against cultural Marxism and to oppose candidates like Hillary Clinton who look to Saul Alinsky, a fan of Lucifer himself, as a political role model.

This Vanderbilt professor spoke at the Ratio Christi Symposium, an event for Christians to unite and learn how to advocate their faith on college campuses. Swain herself has come under fire for her faith at Vanderbilt, and a student petition to have her suspended has garnered 2,167 signatures, just 333 shy of the goal of 2,500. The petition alleges that Swain “has become synonymous with bigotry, intolerance, and unprofessionalism.”

Here is a short video about her story.
