Daily Wire Host Hit with Major Backlash after Claiming Saying ‘Christ Is King’ Is 'Anti-Semitic'

Daily Wire host Andrew Klavan was hit with backlash after he claimed that the groups who say “Christ is King” belong to an “anti-Semitic crowd.”

The Christian expression is of reverence for Jesus Christ as the King of Kings, as stated in verses such as Matthew 21:5 or Revelation 17:14.

“They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings — and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.” Revelation 17:14 reads.

Klavan made the claims after the outlet parted ways with conservative personality Candace Owens.

The conservative commentator claimed that people who use that statement quote it in the way the Devil does.

“When you use that phrase to mean that God has abandoned his chosen people, the Jews, through whom he came into this world incarnate, and that he’s broken his promise — his covenant with the Jews,” Klavan says.

“You are quoting scripture like Satan does in the Bible.”

He went on to claim it is “wicked” when people use that phrase while noting why he understands why people would want figures like Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson to accept Christ.

“I understand this all. All of you who love Ben — I love Ben — and Jordan Peterson — you all want to see them find Jesus because you know what joy and freedom that gives you,” he states.

However, his backpedaling didn’t help the Christians’ backlash.

Christ is King quickly began trending on X:

“Christ is King is trending worldwide. The media’s attempt to cross Him again has failed. Happy Sunday,” Candace Owens shared.

“It’s Palm Sunday and conservative Twitter is having a very serious meltdown over the controversial declaration that checks notes Christ is King,” The Blaze columnist Auron MacIntyre tweeted.

“Yeshua is King,” rapper Bryson Gray wrote.

“Christ is King. This is for certain,” Twitch streamer Kangmin Lee tweeted.

“Never be ashamed of this. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess. But ‘Christ is King’ should be proclaimed for His glory, not our own. If you say it for your own gain, you crown yourself as King over your life, not Christ.”

Meanwhile, writer Jason Whitlock questioned why saying Christ is King is anti-Semitic, which got an immediate response from former legal advisor to Trump Jenna Ellis.

“That’s like asking how the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’ doesn’t really mean that Black lives matter,” she responded.

“Or the problem with the term “social justice” or ‘Christian Nationalism.’ These are all phrases designed to signal.”

“Of course Christ is King. But the phrase ‘Christ is King’ is used to describe an anti-Israel sentiment and false theology that God abandoned the Jews and Christians are the new ‘chosen people.'”

Whitlock countered her claim:

“Hmm. Black Lives Matter, social justice and Christian nationalism are not biblically-based phrases. Jesus is proclaimed as the King of kings in the Bible. The foundation of ‘Christ is King’ is taken directly from the Bible. Thank you for responding, Jenna.”
