Daniels to Bring Bizarre and Bigoted Views To Jacksonville’s Government, Says TWO
BURLINGTON, Vt. – Truth Wins Out expressed alarm that extremist Kimberly Daniels narrowly won her race for Jacksonville City Council. Daniels is known as a “demon buster” and has offended many voters with her fringe views. The new public official is an “Apostle” in a radical religious sect known as “The Seven Mountains Movement,” which seeks to overthrow American society and turn it into a Christian theocracy.
“It is disgraceful that Jacksonville voters elected a radical extremist with offensive and outlandish views,” said Truth Wins Out Executive Director Wayne Besen. “Kimberly Daniels is unfit for office and her election has brought great shame to the state of Florida and the city of Jacksonville. When people with backward views are elevated to public office, it inevitably leads to backwater policies that leave a region behind.”
“Through hard work and prayer I prevailed. I now have the opportunity to serve people in a greater capacity,” Daniels told Charisma magazine.
“There’s a reason [about] 93,000 people voted for me,” Daniels said to the Florida Times Union. “There’s more to me than has been presented.” According to the newspaper, 158 votes – 0.08 percent of the total – separated the council contenders after returns were totaled.
“I would agree that there is more to Daniels than has been presented and it is equally as shocking and repulsive as what the public has already witnessed,” said TWO’s Besen.
During the campaign, TWO revealed videos found by researcher Bruce Wilson where Daniels preaches to her flock: “You can talk about the Holocaust, but the Jews own everything.” Daniels also says, “I thank God for slavery. If it wasn’t for slavery, I might be somewhere in Africa worshipping a tree.”
Daniels has also said that Halloween candy can be tainted by demons: “I do not buy candy during the Halloween season,” Daniels told Charisma magazine on October 27, 2009. “Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door-to-door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons can’t tell the difference.”
Additionally, Daniels is known as a “demon buster” who gives exorcisms to rid people of various maladies.
“We have experienced much success in one-session deliverances,” Daniels wrote in her book, Clean House, Strong House. “…However, there have been times when I have personally walked homosexuals, ex-witches, and drug addicts through sessions that took place over a couple of years.”
Daniels defeated Republican David Taylor who likely lost because he is under investigation for ethical violations. The Times Union describes him as “an attorney who has been embroiled in bar complaints, allegations of building homes without a license and most recently, mystery surrounding an alleged forged signature of a local judge.”
