Greg Gutfeld Rips Anti-Kavanaugh ‘Mob’: Like Jesus, They’re Trying to ‘Crucify Someone Once Again’

As tensions flare over the potential confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld likened the SCOTUS nominee’s opposition to the crucifixion of Christ.

Turning Thursday’s broadcast of The Five into a politically-tinged Sunday school lesson, Gutfeld declared that while he’s an agnostic, he’s learned enough from his time in the Catholic church to know “that crucifixion was an important event because it was designed to establish a wall between justice and mob rule.”

“Christ died so that the mob wouldn’t survive,” Gutfeld continued. “He got there. He died for everybody’s sins.”

“What the Democrats have tried to do is tear down the wall between justice and mob rule,” he added. “They decided to crucify someone once again. That’s what’s wrong.”
