WATCH: Marianne Williamson On HOT MIC Says She Understands Why Conservatives Call The Left ‘GODLESS’

Written by K. Walker on September 12, 2019

The Democratic Presidential hopeful isn’t very happy that her comments were made public.

Two weeks ago, Marianne Williamson was caught on camera being quite candid about her treatment by people on the right versus those on the left. She made the comments in an interview on BlazeTV show America This Week with Eric Bolling. The woman who said that President Trump was invoking a “dark psychic force” on the nation was caught saying that she was surprised that Fox News and conservatives are nicer to her than her fellow “lefties” are.

Williamson appeared to be both surprised and frustrated as she said, “What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are? What does it say that conservatives are nicer to me? It’s such a bizarre world. I’m such a leftie. I’m a serious leftie. I understand why people on the right called them [leftists] godless. I didn’t thin the left was as mean as the right — they are.”

In a recent interview with The New Yorker, Williamson had made similar statements about the differences between the left and right. She had said that she always thought that the right was mean, but that hasn’t been her experience in her campaign for the Democratic nominee. Instead, she has been surprised at how mean the left could be. She also says that the mockery from the left of her tweet regarding prayer as Hurricane Dorian was heading towards the U.S. coast indicated that the left was “overly secularized.”

The New Yorker interview was around the same time as the appearance on Bolling’s show.

Williamson agreed to do another interview with Bolling as long as the comments were not made public, but Bolling played the clip for his audience.

The self-help guru was upset about that and said, “Well, what I was told was that if I came on your show, you wouldn’t blast it out, and you just blasted it out. So … I don’t even know where to go with that.”

She insisted that her comments were frustration that she was feeling that particular day and that there are many on the left that have treated her well. In part, the comments were in response to the kindness she received from Bolling and the team at BlazeTV that day.

She attempted to clarify her comments.

“When it comes to … the rough and tumble of politics and how people behave, I think that there are things that happen just in people, it’s not a left-right issue, and I have found it’s tough out there,” she told Bolling. “And I was just talking about the fact that that day you were certainly very kind to me.”

“And listen, many people on the left are kind to me. I’m running for president. It’s not a walk in the park,” Williamson insisted. “I was making a comment that I found my life that day… you know, the Republicans don’t have to be attacking me right now, I’m in a Democratic primary, so Republicans are, ‘Hi, Marianne,’ whereas some people on the left, because they’re working for other candidates — I understand how it goes, that’s all I meant.”

She’s somewhat right about that — conservatives know that she isn’t a threat.

Some rightwingers are amused by her Oprah-style self-help-New-Agey talk. Others recognize that she is speaking directly to a faith gap within the party that booed God at their convention in a way that isn’t wielding faith as a truncheon with which to bludgeon Christian conservatives as Pete Buttigieg has so often done.
