Prominent evangelist Franklin Graham warned of “all-out socialism” if Americans do not vote for leaders who “love this country, defend the Constitution, & support law & order.”
In a Twitter thread Monday, Graham warned about the consequences of complacency from evangelical conservatives and “every person who loves this country.”
He pointed to the “chaos erupting in cities controlled by liberal, socialist-leaning leadership” as a harbinger of things to come on a national level if “this kind of leadership wins in local, state & national elections in November.”
“If this kind of leadership wins in local, state & national elections in November, we’ll see more of this, which would lead to the demise of our nation as we know it,” said Graham, son of the late evangelist Billy Graham.
In a subsequent tweet, he described the violence and unrest in Portland, Oregon, as “an example of what will take place in other cities if Americans do not take a stand in defense of the nation—through the power of the vote.”
“Socialism is dangerous, and we have a party and many politicians who are flirting with all-out socialism,” he stressed.

Just for the record:
- Joe Biden is not a socialist.
- One of the leading socialist outlets in America–the World Socialist Web Site— has condemned the view of American history informing much of the Black Lives Matter movement that Graham is worried about. The socialists associated with this web site believe that Bernie Sanders, Ocasio Cortez, and others do not go far enough in their Marxism.
- The fear thesis continues to hold water.
