Kevin Sorbo is putting on a Herculean effort to be a political commentator. Sorbo, best known for his portrayal of the Greek and Roman hero and god Hercules for six years on television, wants you to know he’s a full-throated Donald Trump man and has even gone so far as to echo the language of hate groups. “Only in America are legal citizens labeled ‘racists’ and ‘Nazis,’ but illegal aliens are called ‘Dreamers,’” Sorbo tweeted on Sunday. Along with posting a video by Infowars editor Paul Joseph Watson following Trump’s State of the Union in February, Sorbo wrote: “So good. He was also excited about meeting Dennis Prager, a neoconservative radio host and conspiracy theorist. Prager once said of President Barack Obama: “Once one understands that 'racial tensions' is a euphemism for a black animosity toward whites and a left-wing construct, one begins to understand why the election of a black president has had no impact on most blacks or on the left.” And, Sorbo has been known to hang with Brigitte Gabriel, a Lebanese-American anti-Islam activist. In a 2007 speech at the Christians United for Israel convention, Gabriel described Arabs this way: “They have no soul, they are dead set on killing and destruction. And in the name of something they call ‘Allah’ which is very different from the God we believe ... because our God is the God of love.” Gabriel didn’t note whether Hercules old boss, Zeus, would approve. And, backing Trump is nothing new for the Minnesota native. Does Jesus, does God, support lying?
