Supporting Falsehood?

Shaykh Rabī‘ bin Hādī bin ‘Umayr al-Madkhaly was asked...

Is this hadeeth authentic, “Whoever aids falsehood while he knows (better) will be the recipient of Allah’s anger until he leaves off what was said (i.e. his aid and support of falsehood)”?

From what I know this hadeeth is authentic, we ask Allah’s safety (from this).

We see many people in this time who know the truth but despite this fight against it and its people, while supporting falsehood and sacrificing themselves during the process. They defend falsehood and its people (to the point) of raising them to the station of martyrs and those who fight in the cause of Allah so on and so forth from the exaltation they bestow upon the people of falsehood and misguidance.

By Allah this is a dangerous matter, and thus they will be the recipients of Allah’s anger until they leave off what was said (i.e. their aid and support of falsehood). We ask Allah to grant us and them the success of repenting and desisting from falsehood and the aid thereof.
