David Hayes #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Yesterday, Dave Hayes, a self-declared prophet, Christian author, and online QAnon activist who is better known as the “Praying Medic,” posted a video in which he claimed that John Kerry and Barack Obama are behind the increasing tensions between the United States and Iran because they are trying to start a world war before President Trump has them publicly executed by the military.

Hayes claimed that Kerry and Obama and other members of the “deep state” are working to thwart Trump’s efforts to broker a peace deal with Iran because they seek to create a global conflagration that will destroy the United States and create a one-world government.

“They want Iran to continue building nuclear weapons and eventually be able to start World War III so they can get rid of Russia, they can get rid of the United States, and they can get rid of all international borders and have their big happy world global government,” Hayes said. “That’s the long term plan of people like Kerry and Obama. They’re trying to get this done before they go to prison.”

“Most of them are going to military tribunals and a lot of them are going to be facing the death penalty,” he added. “I honestly believe, I think we are going to see public executions. I think there is no other way to send a signal to corrupt people that you should never, ever try this again. I think the only way to do that is the military is going to oversee public executions of some people.”

Rick Wiles #wingnut #fundie #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles warned on his “TruNews” program last night that the rise of companies like Impossible Foods, which is developing plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy products, is part of a satanic plot to alter human DNA so that people can no longer worship God.

“When you go to your favorite fast food restaurant, you are going to be eating a fake hamburger,” Wiles said. “You’re going to go to the grocery store and buy a pound of fake hamburger or a fake steak, and you won’t know that it was grown in some big corporation’s laboratory. This is the nightmare world that they are taking us into. They’re changing God’s creation. Why? Because they want to be God.”

“God is an environmentalist,” Wiles continued. “He takes this very seriously. He created this planet, he created the universe and he’s watching these Luciferians destroy this planet, destroy the animal kingdom, destroy the plant kingdom, change human DNA. Why? They want to change human DNA so that you can’t be born again. That’s where they’re going with this, to change the DNA of humans so it will be impossible for a human to be born again. They want to create a race of soulless creatures on this planet.”

EW Jackson #homophobia rightwingwatch.org

During his sermon yesterday, right-wing pastor and radio host E.W. Jackson ranted that the rainbow flag is “an accursed thing” and declared that U.S. embassies that are flying them in honor of Pride Month are shaking their fists in God’s face.

Jackson praised the Trump administration for denying requests from embassies to fly a rainbow flag during Pride Month and blasted embassies that have reportedly flown them nonetheless.

“Most people don’t know that these State Department folks are defying the president of the United States and flying the rainbow flag,” Jackson told his congregation. “That’s an accursed thing. The rainbow was given to us by God as a sign that he would not destroy the earth by water again, and you’re going to appropriate that as pride in homosexuality? Are you kidding me? Talk about blasphemy. Talk about arrogance. Talk about boldness. Talk about shaking your fist in God’s face.”

Rick Wiles #racist #fundie rightwingwatch.org

On Wednesday night’s episode of his “TruNews” program, during which he praised Alabama’s radical new anti-abortion law and warned that those who support reproductive rights will spend eternity being “aborted continuously forever” by demons in Hell, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles also found time to blame Jews for the legalization of abortion in this nation in the first place, declaring that “we would not have abortion in America if it was not for powerful, influential rich Jews in America.”

Wiles returned to that theme on last night’s program, where he read from an op-ed in the Israeli paper Haaretz written by Debra Nussbaum Cohen, in which she argued that Alabama’s law is “a threat to my religious freedom as a Jew … because according to classical Jewish text and most rabbinic interpreters, a developing embryo or fetus is not ‘an unborn child’ or ‘person,’ but has the legal status of an appendage of the pregnant woman. It is part of her body, not a separate person, until the moment that a majority of a viable baby capable of independent life has been born.”

Wiles, who is deeply anti-Semitic and dedicates many of his TruNews programs to railing against Israel and the Jews yet still regularly receives press credentials from the White House, blasted Cohen’s op-ed and boldly declared that Christians are going to take back America from the Jews “and we are going to impose Christian rule.”

“We Christians are standing up and pushing out Zionism,” Wiles said. “That’s what we’re doing. Zionism brought the slaughter of 65 million babies to America and we’re going to end it and we are going to impose Christian rule in this country.”

“Why are you imposing Judaism on me?” he asked. “Because that’s exactly what’s been done in America since 1973 with Roe v. Wade. Judaism was imposed on me, on my Christian nation and we became a Jewish nation that kills babies. That’s against my Christian beliefs … Judaism became the law of the land in America. That’s precisely what the courts have ruled. They have based their rulings on the Zohar, on the Talmud, and now we have Zionistic Talmudic law ruling this country and resulting in the death of millions of babies. And Ms. Cohen, we Christians are standing up and we’re telling you that we’re done with Zionism, we’re done with your values. We are going to impose Christian values in America again, whether you like it or not.”

Wiles went on to declare that Jews have been able to impose their values on America because they controls the banks, the technology, and the media in this country, and have even been able to gain control over most Christian churches through bribery.

Dave Daubenmire #fundie #wingnut rightwingwatch.org

Radical right-wing activist Dave Daubenmire said on his “Pass The Salt” program this morning that he and a few dozen right-wing activists descended on Chappaqua, New York, over Memorial Day weekend to demand the arrest of Hillary Clinton because they love her and therefore want her sent to prison where she will “cry out to Christ” and finally develop a genuine relationship with Jesus.

“I want Hillary saved,” he said. “You think Hillary is going to get saved sitting in Chappaqua? … Were you saved in good times or bad times? If you really love Hillary, then you ought to be praying that she comes under judgment now so that she escapes judgment later.”

“I want Hillary Clinton saved, but I’m not going to go to her house and read the Bible out loud to her,” Daubenmire said later in the broadcast. “I want her perp-walked. I want her to go to jail and everything she has to be taken from her and then cry out to Christ. That’s what I want for Hillary Clinton. Why does that seem harsh and unloving? She has to be taught to fear God. She’s not going to come to Jesus unless she fears God.”

Radical right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein posted a video last night in which he said that he is praying to God that Attorney General William Barr will teach “scumbags” like Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Andrew McCabe a lesson by putting them to death for actions he baselessly alleges to be treason.

Bernstein was outraged by reports that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is set to be transferred to New York’s Rikers Island prison facility and responded by once again demanding the execution of supposed members of the so-called “deep state.”

“I’m so, so sick of this double standard B.S., two-tier justice system,” Bernstein fumed. “I hope to God and I pray to God that William Barr does the right thing and puts these ever-loving pieces of crap, deviant, scumbag you-know-whats where they belong.”

“Let’s fry these bastards,” he added. “Let’s get out Old Sparky and sit each one down. Boom, there you go. Who’s next? Boom. Page, you’re next. OK, Strzok, you’re next. McCabe, you’re next. I don’t care … These scumbags—and that’s what they are—need to be taught a lesson.”

In response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s remarks on the findings of his investigation, right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein said that he hopes President Trump is sharpening up the guillotines to be used to put Mueller and other “deep state” actors to death for committing treason.

In the video posted Wednesday, Bernstein fumed that Mueller is “a slimy, sleazy, dirty, scummy cop” who had probably been paid by the Democrats to deliver his statement to give them justification for impeaching Trump.

“How much were you paid to do that press conference?” Bernstein asked. “William Barr, you need to investigate this press conference and the origins of it and who ordered it and who made it and if there was any type of payment given.”

“Dirtbags, all of you,” he fumed. “All of you are just disgusting, despicable excuses for human beings and, honestly, I hope you all go down. Treason. President Trump said treason. Guess what? I agree with that. Liz Cheney said treason and a coup. Absolutely. You know what they do for treason? U.S. Code 18 § 2381. They put you to death, that’s what they do.”

“Let’s sharpen up them guillotines, let’s bring out Old Sparky, let’s make sure that those lethal concoctions are ready to go, because you people deserve it,” Bernstein said.

Republican Party #fundie rightwingwatch.org

A chilling new poll conducted by scholars Ariel Malka and Yphtach Lelkes, which they write about in the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog today, finds that not only do nearly half of Republicans falsely believe that President Trump won the popular vote in 2016 and that nearly 70 percent believe that “millions of illegal immigrants voted” in the election, but that more than half would support postponing the 2020 presidential election “until the country can make sure that only eligible American citizens can vote” if Trump were to propose it.

Malka and Lelkes caution that this whole situation is hypothetical and that people’s views might be different if faced with the situation in reality. But they write that their findings, at a minimum “show that a substantial number of Republicans are amenable to violations of democratic norms that are more flagrant than what is typically proposed (or studied).”

It’s worth remembering that one of the many conspiracy theories that the right-wing media propagated about President Obama was that he would invent some kind of crisis in order to justify staying in office for a second term, or even indefinitely.

WorldNetDaily, the website that was the chief driver of the racist “birther” myth, also had a sideline in stories about ways that Obama might manage to stay in office beyond his second term. One WND story speculated that Obama “planned” riots in Baltimore as a step toward instituting martial law, forming a “national police force” and postponing the 2016 elections. Another warned that Obama might use the Ebola virus to create chaos in the country, declare martial law, and cancel the election. WND’s editor, Joseph Farah, repeatedly warned that Obama might find a way to stay in office whether Trump or Hillary Clinton won the election.

When WND asked Ben Carson, then considering his own run for president,“Who would stop Obama from remaining in office past his second term?,” Carson played along.

Alan Keyes, who was Obama’s Republican opponent in the 2004 Illinois Senate race, warned that Obama might use a nuclear war as a pretext to stay in office. Televangelist Jim Bakker and radio hosts Michael Savage, Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh also expressed their concerns about a third Obama term. Paid email blasts went out to the subscribers of several conservative websites warning of some unspecified event that “could propel Obama to a near-unprecedented third term.” In early 2015, a spokesman for the Family Research Council assured worried callers to the group’s radio program that there was “a whole host of people lined up ready to help make sure” that Obama would leave office in 2017, adding that a third Obama term was “a concern” of his as well.

The militia group Oath Keepers repeatedly warned of efforts to cancel the 2016 election if attempts to elect Clinton by nefarious means started to fail.

How times have changed.

Jesse Lee Peterson #sexist rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing commentator Jesse Lee Peterson reacted to the news that a lesbian had been elected as mayor of Chicago by blaming what he views as an unfortunate outcome on the fact that women are being allowed to vote without men instructing them how to do so properly.

Peterson, who has long insisted that “one of the greatest mistakes that America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote,” complained on his radio program yesterday that elected offices are being filled with gays and Muslims “because of the women’s vote.”

“I am blown away how there are people in our country who have no shame about being wrong now and that wrong is being accepted as right,” Peterson griped. “You have mayors [who are] lesbians—I think we got more than one in the country—and we have homosexuals, and men and women who are living together without being married, and Muslims and all the wrong kinds of people running our country. It’s like they’re becoming first class citizens while Christians, the men and women of God, are becoming second class citizens.”

“The reason all of this is happening,” he added, “is become of the women’s vote. There are more women voting … and they are voting for the wrong things, folks, the wrong people, the wrong emotional reasons. And the reason they’re doing it is because they don’t have men to say, ‘No, don’t vote for that person, that’s wrong, and here’s why it’s wrong.’ They don’t have men leading the way and then women have convinced the men to vote for the homosexuals and other people.”

E.W. Jackson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing pastor and radio host E.W. Jackson spent most of his “The Awakening” program today ranting and railing against Islam. At one point, Jackson trotted out the favorite Religious Right talking point that Islam is not even a religion but is rather a totalitarian ideology that is entirely incompatible with our laws and our Constitution.

Jackson insisted that, by contrast, Christians “don’t have any difficulty adhering to the laws of the land” … and then proceeded to undermine his entire argument.

“Christians put the law of God above the law of man,” Jackson admitted, insisting that this position could never be a source of conflict because “proper laws are always consistent with God’s law.”

“Our whole legal system is rooted and grounded in Judeo-Christian law,” he said. “Because our laws and mores are rooted and grounded in Christian principles, we don’t have any difficulty, most of the time, adhering to the laws of the land.”

Jackson then managed to completely undercut his own argument as he began to rail against the Supreme Court for refusing to hear a case involving the owner of a bed-and-breakfast who is being sued for refusing, for religious reasons, to rent a room to a lesbian couple.

“Can I just be perfectly blunt?” Jackson said. “Why in the world should Christians who have spent their time, their energy, their money, their prayers to buy a little bitty bed-and-breakfast with three rooms for guests be forced by the law to have two old, big strapping men go up in one of their rooms and have sex? Now that’s disgusting! Or two women? In a place that they probably prayed over and dedicated to God and said, ‘God use this place for your glory, use it bless people and to encourage people and to comfort people and to help people.’ And they put their time, their energy, their money into it and then you’ve got the law come along and say, ‘Yeah, you’ve got to let two homosexuals go into one of those rooms and do whatever they do.'”

“Why should that be forced upon two people, or on anybody, who spent their time, their energy, their money, and their prayers, and their tears to build something that they wanted to be God-glorifying and then have somebody tell them, ‘Well, we don’t care what you built it for, we’re going to force you to have people come in here who will simply defile the place?'” Jackson fumed. “And I said it and I mean it! This will be a defilement of the place that [was] blessed and dedicated to God. And no, it’s not happening!”

Jackson said that “homosexuals basically are trying to intimidate and cow Christians into bowing to their will” before declaring that Christians will give up their lives rather than adhere to any earthly law that violates the laws of God.

“We’re not bowing,” he vowed. “They can do whatever they want to do. We’re not bowing … We Christians are never going to bow down. Never! You’ll have to kill us, but we won’t bow.”

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Earlier this year, right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin warned that if the long-promised wave of mass arrests of elite satanic pedophiles promised by QAnon doesn’t happen by the end of 2019, then she was going to “have to bow out” of the movement and focus her attention elsewhere.

Crokin has long been one of the most ardent proponents of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which asserts that the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is really just a cover for a plan orchestrated by President Trump to take down a global satanic pedophile ring involving countless political, economic, and cultural leaders. A central component of this conspiracy theory is that once everything is in place, Trump will unleash a wave of mass arrests in which high-profile figures like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and others will be rounded up, tried by military tribunals, and executed.

The fact that no arrests appear to be happening has been a source of constant tension within the QAnon movement, but Crokin released a video last night declaring that all doubts about them can finally be put to rest, thanks to the recent college admissions bribery scandal.

Last week, federal prosecutors charged dozens of people with being part of a massive scheme in which hefty bribes were doled out to illegally obtain admission to top colleges and universities for the children of wealthy and high-profile individuals. Among those charged were actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman,which Crokin sees as proof that a wave of mass arrests will soon sweep the nation.

“The most important thing people need to understand about this story is … the mass arrests are happening!” Crokin excitedly proclaimed. “These celebrities were sealed indictments, people. The mass arrests are officially happening. We are seeing the beginning of the sealed indictments being unsealed. We’re seeing the beginning of evil members of the frickin’ cabal being exposed, and this is just the beginning. This is just the absolute tip of the iceberg. So no more comments please on any of my social media or on YouTube saying, ‘When are the mass arrests going to happen?’ or, ‘I’m doubting you, Liz, that they’re going to happen.’ They’re happening! They’re happening! They are happening right now!”

Crokin went on to say that arrests for white collar crimes such as the college bribery scandal are part of a plan to “prepare the public” for the much more horrifying revelations that are to come.

“Wait until they hear about how people in Hollywood eat babies,” she said. “This is the least of the crimes that these people are guilty of … This is nothing compared to what these people are capable of and what they’re doing, particularly to children. I believe the white hats are trying to slowly prepare the public for what is about to come, so they are starting off small with white collar crimes and we’re slowly going to get up to the bigger crimes, which involve treason, trafficking kids, ritualistic satanic abuse, and all those horrific things.”

During his appearance on Bill Deagle’s “NutriMedical Report Show” yesterday, right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein declared that he wants “to make it harder for people to vote.”

Bernstein, who just last week said that is should be illegal for liberal “scum” to move to conservatives states, vehemently objected to the idea of giving people the day off from work in order to vote, insisting that such a move would only benefit “welfare sluts.”

“I’ll go on record saying it,” Bernstein proclaimed. “I want to make it harder for people to vote. That’s right, I said it, I’m proud of saying it.”

“I want to raise the voting age to 30. How’s that? Maybe even 35,” he continued. “I want to eliminate early voting, 100 percent. I want to get rid of it completely … I don’t want a voting day because if you have a voting day, you are going to have every single welfare slut and their babies out there giving all these different people in the streets more and more money to go out and vote and they’re just going to spend all day voting and they won’t work because they’ll say, ‘Well, it’s voting day.'”

“If it’s not that important to you and you can’t get there somehow on that day, then I don’t want you to be voting anyway,” Bernstein concluded. “I want less people voting in this country. Less, not more.”

Bryan Fischer #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Bryan Fischer has used his perch at the American Family Association to virulently attack Islam and its adherents for years, so it was only natural that he used his “Focal Point” radio program today to weigh in on the massacre of dozens of Muslim worshippers in New Zealand, saying that while he doesn’t support the manner in which it was carried out, he does sympathize with the underlying objective.

“I hate Islam,” he said. “I hate Islam because it is a danger to everything that is important to me: My faith, my country, my liberty, Christianity, civil rights. Everything that you and I treasure is threatened by Islam.”

Fischer said that ruthlessly murdering Muslims “is the wrong way to go about it,” but added that the shooter was “correct only in that Islam is something that does need to be stopped.”

Fischer declared that those responsible for the attack should be tried and publicly executed, but noted that “vigilante justice” like this is almost inevitable because governments are not taking adequate steps to eliminate the threat posed by Islam.

“One of the things that happens to guys like this is, if they’ve got some loose wiring to begin with and they see that their government is not doing what is necessary to protect them—whether it is from illegal aliens, whether it is from jihadis, whether it’s from vengeful Muslims—if they see that their government is not doing their jobs to promote justice, to carry out justice, to protect national security, then they’re going to start thinking, ‘Well, I can’t count on the government to do it, so I’m going to have to take things into my own hands,'” Fischer said. “That’s where you get vigilante justice … and, unfortunately, I think we saw a case of that today in New Zealand.”

Rick Wiles #racist rightwingwatch.org

(Hey, it's a trifecta!)

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles reacted angrily on his “TruNews” program last night to the news that the Trump administration is “launching a global campaign to end the criminalization of homosexuality in dozens of nations where it’s still illegal to be gay,” by calling out the evangelical advisers who surround the president for refusing to speak out against this plan. Ultimately, he blamed the entire thing on the Jews.

Saying that he is “very, very upset” with Trump, Wiles called out Trump’s evangelical advisers and challenged them to stand up in opposition to this effort, predicting that they won’t do so because all they really care about is protecting Israel.

“Now, what is the evangelical base going to do?” Wiles asked. “He’s got an evangelical board of advisers … What are you going to do about it? You’ve got access to the White House, are you going to speak out?”

“I dare you,” he continued. “I challenge you. Or will you be silent? What are you going to do, because you silence is complicity. Are you afraid to tell President Trump the truth? Will you tell him that you will withhold political support if he goes down this route? Because I think the Christians should tell him, ‘You go this way, we’re out, you’re on your own.'”

Warning Trump that “God cannot bless your administration” because it is “promoting something that God says is an abomination,” Wiles, who is deeply anti-Semitic and dedicates many of his programs to railing against Israel and the Jews, predicted that Trump’s evangelical advisers would hold their tongues on this issue because Israel is their top priority.

“The real reason they won’t say anything is because the real agenda is Israel,” he said. “They’re not going to jeopardize their standing with the White House to get things done for Israel. That’s the real reason.”

Wiles went on to declare that “the Jews” are ultimately behind this push and the Trump administration is simply doing what it is told because the Jews “control Washington” and have “control of the Trump administration.”

“Donald Trump is owned by the Jews,” he said. “That’s the truth.”

Right-wing commentator Jesse Lee Peterson kicked off his radio program this morning by heaping praise on President Trump for his State of the Union Address last night, while launching personal attacks on Democratic leaders and declaring that anyone who votes for a Democrat after last night “hates God” and “loves Satan.”

Peterson said that Trump’s speech reminded him of the good old days “when men where in charge” and they “didn’t take any crap.”

“Do you see the difference when a man is leading as opposed to when a woman is leading?” he asked. “Especially a liberal woman. It was the difference between night and day.”

After declaring that Democrats “looked like defeated brats” who “demonstrated that they do not love America,” Peterson attacked Rep. John Lewis as a “bug-eyed, fat black guy” who “looked like a dirty, old black trash man.” Later, Peterson turned his attention to Stacey Abrams, who delivered the Democratic response, blasting her for having supposedly “forgotten to straighten her hair.”

“She had this little nasty-looking nappy hair on her head like she just got out of the bathtub from washing her hair and didn’t straighten it,” Peterson carped. “Remember when black women used to … know not to go outside looking like that? Stacey Abrams didn’t straighten her hair. She left it nappy.”

“And she’s getting fat,” he added. “She’s just fat from the head to the toe.”

“You could clearly see the difference between logical men and illogical women last night,” Peterson concluded. “The Democratic Party is the party of death. They’re the party of death, not of life. They want to kill God, they want to kill men, they want to kill women who are of God, they want to kill unborn children, and they want to kill children who are living already, that’s why they corrupt their minds and their souls in the public schools. They don’t want them to live, they want them to die and that was apparent last night. And if you didn’t see it, may God have mercy on your soul. You are truly blind. Anyone who votes for the Democratic Party now, after last night, woe unto you. Really. Because you are deliberately voting for evil and your heart, your soul, hates God and hates good and it loves Satan, it loves evil.”

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Last week, right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on her YouTube channel in which she suggested that she was beginning to lose faith in the QAnon conspiracy theory and its associated movement, declaring that if the long-promised wave of mass arrests of elite satanic pedophiles doesn’t happen by the end of 2019, then she is going to “have to bow out” of the movement and focus her attention elsewhere.

As we noted, Crokin has long been one of the most ardent proponents of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which asserts that the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is really just a cover for a plan orchestrated by President Trump to take down a global satanic pedophile ring involving countless political, economic, and cultural leaders. A central component of this conspiracy theory is that once everything is in place, Trump will unleash a wave of mass arrests in which high-profile figures like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and others will be rounded up, tried by military tribunals, and executed.

But as the weeks and months have passed without any such arrests taking place, Crokin has begun to lose faith in QAnon, which appears to be giving rise to a new and worrisome development as she is now suggesting that fed up QAnon followers may begin to take matters into their own hands.

Appearing recently on “The SGT Report,” Crokin all but begged Q to produce just one arrest “so that we know we’re moving in the right direction,” warning that if arrests don’t start to happen soon, QAnon followers might resort to vigilante justice.

“[The arrests] need to happen this year,” she said. “If they don’t happen before 2020, President Trump is going to lose support. He promised that he would take Hillary Clinton down. He said that he would assign a special prosecutor to investigate her crimes. We haven’t forgotten. We want to see justice for real criminals. We know these people are torturing children, they’re raping kids, they’re ripping their body parts apart, they’re selling the organs on the black market. They are doing to most horrific crimes against humanity on children and it’s unacceptable and President Trump needs to make sure that his DOJ goes after the real criminals.”

“They need to do it before 2020 because I believe if he doesn’t, then he’s going to lose support and people are just going to get fed up and, honestly, people are going to start taking to the streets,” Crokin warned. “I’m ready now to physically go to John Podesta’s house and drag him out of his house.”

“I’m all for citizen’s arrests at this point,” responded the host of the program.

“So am I,” said Crokin. “This has dragged on for too long. We need to start seeing arrests of the real criminals and I just pray to God that they happen really soon because if they don’t, I think that so much is coming out about the sex trafficking, what they do to kids, [that] we are going to start seeing vigilante justice and that could get really dangerous and that could cause a civil war in this country.”

Gone Too Far #fundie rightwingwatch.org


Imagine an anti-LGBTQ gathering that included remarks by a trio of aggressively anti-gay activists—Scott Lively, Peter LaBarbera, and Brian Camenker—and now imagine that none of them was the most ridiculous, obnoxious or extreme speaker. Such was the scene at the National Press Club on Tuesday afternoon, where a new group calling itself “Gone Too Far” introduced itself with tirades against the LGBTQ equality movement, the proposed federal Equality Act, and members of the Congressional Black Caucus who support it.

Three right-wing African American pastors—Randy Short, Stephen Broden and E.W. Jackson—are part of the group’s organizing committee, as are Lively, LaBarbera, and Camenker. (Notably, the latter three were all part of a group of Religious Right leaders who defended Rep. Steve King when he was punished by his House colleagues for his most recent racist comments.) Additional organizing committee members include Arthur Shaper, head of the California branch of Camenker’s MassResistance; Paul Blair, president of Reclaiming America for Christ; and his Oklahoma clergy colleague, Dan Fisher. Blair is also a promoter of “nullification”–the notion that the individual states hold the power to nullify federal laws.

The press conference began with the blowing of a shofar, prayer, the singing of “Jesus Loves the Little Children” and “God Bless America,” and the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. When Short took to the podium, things went downhill quickly.

“Today is a day that we declare war on those who are ungodly, unbiblical and wicked,” said Short, who is from the D.C. area and who is listed as “coordinator” of Gone Too Far on a press release. “We are sick and tired of all the deviants, all the eugenicists, all the homophiles coming out of the closet to destroy this country.” Short was particularly outraged that members of the Congressional Black Caucus, with the exception of Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, have endorsed the Equality Act, which Short called “the pedophile bill.”

“We have a group that nobody wants that has decided like a parasite to hook itself to the history and legacy of the African American people,” he said.

Short, whose Facebook page denounces “CBC QOONS,” called members of the Black Caucus “a group of infamous fakers, haters, takers, liars, excuse-makers” who “have auctioned the future of our black babies for the sodomite agenda and for the pedophile or the minor-attracted person agenda.”

“I want to say to you,” said Short, “that the Congressional Black Caucus is the equivalent of a terminal venereal disease on the body of black people in this country, and they cannot take a stand against our people being wiped out.”

Short went after iconic CBC members by name. He declared Maxine Waters to be a “fraud,” adding there is “nothing black about her—her wig is from Korea.” Of civil rights hero John Lewis, he asked, “What closet are you in, boy? They didn’t beat you enough in the 60s for you to turn on God, turn on your people, turn on morality, turn on the black woman, turn on the black unborn, turn on the black children.” Short called on them all to resign.

Saying, “We don’t need a Hitler; we’ve got LGBTQ,” Short suggested that the equality movement is a conspiracy to spread diseases to the black community and “wipe out an unwanted population of people through immorality.”

Those people who should know better, who call themselves minority leaders—who know that bowel movement and the blood shed at Edmund Pettus Bridge don’t come together. We’ve got another epidemic brought to us that’s covered up—shingles. Folks sick because folks eat bowel movement in the sexual acts they have, and now they’re injecting children, giving them these diseases, calling it vaccines, because Big Pharma makes so much money off of the new odd diseases that come out of the conduct of these folks.

Short had an odd question for the audience: “Can anyone prove that all the slaveholders were heterosexual?” And he had an answer:

You can’t scientifically prove that. So didn’t some of these gays, even though they didn’t procreate way back then, didn’t they own our people? Who was raping the boys on the plantations? What is ‘breaking the buck?’ Why don’t we know that on the plantations, black men were raped by gay white men to break them down, and now we’re unified with them, and gay is the new black? Have you lost your mind?

One of the few people Short had any kind words for was Anita Bryant, who he said was right for her anti-gay-rights crusade in the 1970s. “God bless Anita Bryant,” he said.

A cursory online search turns up other examples of Short’s unusual worldview, including a 2014 statement attributed to him that asserted, “I will always love Ayatollah Khomeini.”

Next up was Broden of Dallas, Texas, who said during his failed 2010 congressional campaign that the violent overthrow of the government should be an option “on the table” for dealing with government tyranny.

Like Short, Broden made much of language in the Equality Act, saying that the purpose of the bill is “to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, sexual orientation—and for other purposes.” Broden implied that “other purposes” opens the door to the potential protection of pedophilia and bestiality by civil rights laws.

Broden said the “sinister” Equality Act would encroach on religious liberty and free speech, and would essentially transfer protections of the civil rights struggle to “wealthy white men.” Said Broden. “It is the gateway to a moral depravity that will ultimately destroy this nation.”

Following Broden to the microphone was Dan Fisher, who promoted Gone Too Far’s “Proclamation for Morality.” The proclamation spends a lot of time talking about sexually transmitted diseases, anal sex, pedophilia and, of course, the horrors of Drag Queen Story Hours.

“All truth is God’s truth,” Fisher said. “And his truth applies to all people at all times and in all places. There is not one truth for men and another for women, one for blacks and another for whites, one for heterosexuals, and another for those identifying as LGBTQ.” God alone, he said, has the authority to define and regulate sexuality and marriage.

“If Congress attempts to label as a civil right that which has been understood by generations as immoral, it would not only be reversing centuries of western Judeo-Christian thought, but would be in essence, as Pastor Broden said, actually rendering historic, orthodox Christianity illegal,” Fisher said.

Next up was Stephen Black, who runs a ministry for “sexually and relationally broken people.” Black said God saved him from his gay-identified “years in darkness” and he denounced efforts by LGBTQ activists to ban conversion therapy for minors. He said the term “gay Christian” is “heresy.”

Scott Lively, the notorious globe-trotting anti-LGBTQ activist and author of “The Pink Swastika,” followed Black at the mic. (Lively ran unsuccessfully last year for the Republican nomination for governor of Massachusetts.) At the Gone Too Far event, he took special aim at the Equality Act, anti-discrimination legislation that was introduced in the 115th Congress. The Equality Act, Lively said, is not really about equality but about “LGBT supremacy.”

Lively denounced former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, author of landmark gay-rights rulings, as “the worst enemy of the family in the history of the Supreme Court.” Lively charged that the Equality Act was meant to accomplish what he said was the LGBT movement’s goal of abolishing laws governing the age of sexual consent, as well as the legalization of prostitution and polygamy. He also said that that the transgender movement is really about promoting the “pedophilia agenda.”

After Lively came Peter LaBarbera, famed for his fondness for chronicling leather/fetish events in lurid detail as head of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. Lively became part of Camenker’s growing MassResistance organization last year, and at this week’s press conference, he promoted the group’s tome on “the health hazards of homosexuality.”

LaBarbera said the LGBTQ movement is an anti-God, anti-normal, anti-truth, anti-moral, anti-freedom “revolution” being led by people who are “desperate to rationalize their sin.” He said gay rights activists are “accelerating their war on the church because the church, the Christian church mainly, is the last bastion of opposition to this revolution.”

Camenker wasn’t at the speaker’s table but was given a minute at the end of the press conference to say how “thrilled” he is to be part of the Gone Too Far effort. At an anti-gay gathering in 2015, Camenker said that God has “very brutal” rules for dealing with people who want to tear down the moral structure of society: they “must be destroyed.”

During a Q&A period, Broden said the Equality Act is part of a “dark, evil sinister plot to destroy America.” Tapping another right-wing conspiracy theory, Broden said the Act’s origins go back to the development of “Cultural Marxism” in Germany in the 1920s. Lively also spoke about Cultural Marxism, which he said was another name for secular humanism, which he said was a religion that elite establishment Republicans and Democrats share.

Asked by a conservative activists about Trump, who waved a rainbow flag on the campaign trail, Lively defended the president, saying he cuts Trump some slack for not doing more because he “still does not have control of the government” due to deep state activists who have their claws and tentacles dug into the Defense and State departments. “Donald Trump is God’s man in the White House,” Lively declared.

Gone Too Far is promoting “God’s Voice,” a conference being held in Oklahoma City on February 22 and 23 that is described as “a biblical response to the queering of the church.” LaBarbera and Black are among the scheduled speakers, along with radio host Janet Mefferd.

Rick Wiles #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

On yesterday’s edition of his “TruNews” program, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles declared that the special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia and Russian interference in the 2016 election is really part of a plan by England to destabilize America in order to undo the American Revolution and reabsorb the nation into the British monarchy.

“This may be entirely a U.K. intelligence-driven operation against Donald Trump,” Wiles said. “Why would Great Britain, why would the monarchy, why would the establishment of Great Britain want to destabilize the Trump administration? This is what it appears to be, because all of the tentacles of this Russia-gate story, it all goes back to Great Britain.”

“This country has been deliberately weakened over the last 70 years,” he continued. “Really since the 60s. Culturally, the invasion started in the 60s with British rock music coming into this country. Did we forget about that? The rebellion? The spirit of rebellion, drugs, it came from Great Britain.”

Anti-choice activist Lila Rose says “it”—presumably the [women's] march—“says that I have to kill a child, and my right to have this right to kill a child in order to be empowered.” It should go without saying that no march leaders or advocates for reproductive choice say anything like that.

Speaking of reproductive rights, here comes a doozy: “Because I’m a proud pro-life birth mother who believes that reproductive rights means waiting to have sex again until I’m married.” That’s not exactly the generally accepted definition of that term.

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

On Sunday, right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on her YouTube channel in which she declared that former President George H.W. Bush had been “executed,” which she believes is a signal that the long-predicted mass arrests would soon begin.

Crokin, like many other far right-wing activists, is a devoted believer in the so-called “QAnon” conspiracy theory, which posits that a high-ranking official within the Trump administration has been dropping coded hints on the 8Chan forum board about a secret operation to take down a global satanic pedophile ring involving countless political, economic, and cultural leaders.

The proof of this effort, Crokin and others believe, will come in the form of a wave of mass arrests in which hundreds of highly influential figures will be rounded up, subjected to military tribunals, and ultimately executed.

On Sunday, Crokin reported that a key moment in this unfolding plan would occur when U.S. Attorney John Huber, who has been “tasked with looking into Republican claims of FBI misconduct and whether more should have been done to investigate Hillary Clinton’s ties to a Russian nuclear agency,” testified before a House committee this week.

“The hearing that goes down this week,” she said, “there is a very good chance that the crimes against children will be exposed and the floodgates will break open. I don’t know for sure. I’m praying that will be the case, but whether it happens on [December] 5th or in a week or three weeks, it’s happening.”

“It’s no coincidence that George [Bush] Sr. died,” she added. “By the way, he didn’t die, he was executed. He was executed. So the tide has turned, you guys. The Q movement is unstoppable.”

“The writing is on the wall,” Crokin proclaimed. “Nothing is going to stop these arrests from happening. Nothing. And this is going to be a big week. The world is about to change.”

Jesse Lee Patterson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

(Keep in mind, Jesse Lee Patterson is black.)

Right-wing commentator Jesse Lee Peterson told radio listeners this morning that black people use to be “moral people” before the civil rights era, but have become “immoral” since gaining more equal treatment in American society.

On his radio show this morning, a caller asked Peterson to elaborate on earlier claims he made about interracial children, when he asserted that having children with white people would “make blacks better.” The caller asked Peterson how mixed children “back in the slavery days” bettered themselves, to which Peterson answered that those children were able to achieve success because “they were not told they were victims, they were not told that white people were trying to hold them back.”

“Black people were moral people back then and they are immoral now. Since the civil rights movement, they have been relying on the government, they feel like victims, they blame everybody else for their weakness,” Peterson said.

Peterson is occasionally drafted to be a pundit in mainstream right-wing media to criticize the black community and to give cover for Republican scandals involving racism.

“Nobody comes out to see the Clintons, the Obamas, the Bidens, or any Democratic candidate, yet you’re convincing me that you beat us and won all those House seats fair and square?” Root asked in disbelief. “At the same time that’s happening, anti-Trump Murphy Brown’s new series was cancelled after one season … [Every time] they put something liberal on the air like Murphy Brown that just bashes Trump from the beginning of the show to the end of the show, nobody tunes in to watch.”

In the recent midterm elections, Democrats Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota became the first Muslim women elected to Congress, but Guandolo is declaring that as “sharia-adherent women,” they are unable to uphold the U.S. Constitution and therefore must not be allowed to take office.

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing “journalist” and fringe conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on YouTube yesterday in which she claimed that Democrats are desperately trying to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court because they know that if he is confirmed, that will be the final step before the mass arrests and military tribunals begin.

“They know what’s coming,” Crokin said. “The deep state, the globalists, the cabal members, they know they’re screwed, they know what crimes they have committed.”

Echoing the claims of so-called “firefighter prophet” Mark Taylor, Crokin asserted that the late Sen. John McCain did not die of brain cancer, but was actually executed by a secret military tribunal for treason.

“John McCain never had cancer,” she declared, incredulously. “He didn’t die a natural death or death from brain cancer. The man was tried in a private military tribunal and he was killed for treason. And from what I am hearing and from what I am researching, he sang; he sang like a canary and gave up the goods on other people.”

“It was so obvious he didn’t have brain cancer,” she said. “Give me a break.”

Crokin claimed that members of the deep state know that Trump is coming after them and are now working to ensure that when they are arrested and prosecuted, they will be tried in court, where they might have a chance of getting off on a technicality, instead of before a military tribunal and that is why they are going all out to defeat Kavanaugh.

“The military isn’t going to let any of these scumbags who were involved in raping children and trafficking children get off on a frickin technicality,” she said. “They’re screwed. They know it. And the bottom line with Judge Kavanaugh is, once he is confirmed, it’s over. He is the final nail in the coffin that needs to happen to lead us into mass arrests and then the military tribunals.”

Kevin Swanson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Radical anti-LGBTQ radio host and pastor Kevin Swanson said on his “Generations” radio program today that the wildfires that are ravaging California are God’s punishment on the state for its years of attempting to “legitimize the sin of homosexuality.”

“If you look at the history of California, they have been at the forefront of this,” he said. “The first gay pride march occurred in San Francisco in 1970 and then San Francisco legitimized homosexuality in 1972. In 1982, Laguna Beach, California, elected the first openly homosexual mayor in United States history. In 1999, California adopted a domestic partnership law; I believe it was one of the first in the nation to do that.”

“In 2005,” Swanson continued, “California state legislators became the first in the nation to pass a same-sex marriage law … In 2008, the California Supreme Court then struck down Prop 22 in regard to marriage cases, and Prop 8 also was struck down later on that year, I believe. In 2011, California became the first state to mandate homosexual indoctrination for K-8 students and then, in 2012, California became the first state to sign a ban on therapy that was attempting to convert homosexuals into non-homosexuals. And then, in 2017, the California state schools implemented the homosexual indoctrination program … and that was the kickoff for the biggest fires that California has ever seen in its history.”

“So God is burning down California in 2017 and 2018 after about 25 years of leading the pack to legitimize the sin of homosexuality in that state,” Swanson declared.

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Last weekend, right-wing “journalist” and fringe conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin did an interview with online psychic and YouTube host Jenny Moonstone in which she laid out her theory that John F. Kennedy Jr. faked his own death in 1999 and is now behind the QAnon account.

QAnon is an anonymous figure at the center of a right-wing conspiracy theory known as “The Storm” that alleges that high-ranking members of the Trump administration have been using the 8Chan forum board to drop hints revealing that Robert Muller’s special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is really cover for a secret operation to take down a global network of satanic pedophile cannibals. Proponents of this conspiracy theory have increasingly been making their presence known at Trump rallies.

In a video posted by Moonstone on Sunday, Crokin explained her theory that JFK Jr. has been running the QAnon account all along, insisting that any mockery she receives, or attacks she endures, for promoting her absurd ideas is proof that she is right.

Crokin asserted that when she first heard the theory of JFK Jr. being behind the QAnon account, “it immediately resonated with me, I got goosebumps everywhere. I’m a very intuitive person and usually when that happens, that’s confirmation that there is truth to it.”

“Q at one point said, ‘You’re not going to believe who you are talking to here,'” Crokin said. “When Q wrote that, I thought it’s going to be someone that’s so crazy that even people that are woke and know what’s going on are going to be like, ‘Oh my lord, this is insane’ … John F. Kennedy Jr., that would be shocking because we all think he’s dead.”

Crokin went on to assert that, as a writer, she has an amazing ability to understand handwriting and uncover the truth simply by examining the things that people write, which leads her to believe that JFK Jr. is, in fact, the main force behind QAnon.

“The one thing that always struck me about Q’s posts is the passion for John F. Kennedy Sr.,” she said. “When I say passion, I’m talking the passion for JFK Sr. is so intense, I don’t see how this passion could come from anyone that A) didn’t know him and B) didn’t love him. So you have to think about, well, who could that be? Well, if John F. Kennedy Jr. was still alive, that would make perfect sense.”

“The way that Q talks about JFK Sr. in the posts, it is with such love and passion, it makes me think that it is someone that is close to him,” Crokin added. “If JFK Jr. faked his death and was alive, it would make sense that he was Q.”

Peter LaBarbera Is Upset ‘Love, Simon’ Did Not Mention The ‘Judgment Of God’ On Gay People

Anti-LGBTQ activist Peter LaBarbera was, unsurprisingly, not a fan of the new gay teenage romance film “Love, Simon,” complaining to Religious Right radio host Janet Mefferd on Tuesday that the film fails to promote a “religious message” and does not warn audiences that gay people face a life of physical and mental illness “and of course the judgment of God.”

LaBarbera joined Mefferd on Tuesday to weigh in on the release of “Love, Simon,” which is a romantic comedy film that features a 17-year-old boy who reveals his sexual orientation to his friends and family and falls in love with a classmate. LaBarbera, who has long been livid about the entertainment industry advancing LGBTQ causes, shared with Mefferd what he saw to be “three myths” promoted in the film.

“Number one is that being homosexual—quote-unquote ‘gay’—is basically who you are, intrinsically who you are. You know, if that line just happens to be gay. That’s number one. Number two, that there’s a total mutual equivalence between homosexual romances and the gay lifestyle and normal, heterosexual living, so it’s presented as totally equal. Number three, that parental love, the way they love their son after he comes out and declares his homosexuality or they find out, the parents, is they just basically express regret they didn’t know earlier,” he said. “There’s no sorrow. There’s no religious message at all in the movie, Janet, and there’s nothing that says any disapproval.”

LaBarbera said he believed the movie was “like a Disney gay movie” that was made for teenagers before complaining that “there’s no aftermath after this boy finds his quote-unquote ‘gay’ romance.”

“We’re never going to hear later about the diseases associated with homosexuality that he likely would get, mental illness, and of course the judgment of God,” LaBarbera said.

Mefferd asked LaBarbera to expand on what he meant when he referred to mental illness, to which LaBarbera responded by promoting the book “The Health Hazards of Homosexuality,” published by the anti-gay group MassResistence. He claimed that conditions like HIV are now “gay male diseases,” claiming that this is the case “because homosexual behavior is a perversion like God says it is, it is deviant, it is not normal.”

LaBarbera also said he was upset that “Love, Simon” posed the question of why heterosexual people don’t have to come out as “straight” to their friends and family. He answered the question by saying it was “because that’s the way God designed it.”

“It’s so basic and yet Hollywood is doing everything it can now. We’re going to see more and more movies like this. And Janet, this is the first major teen homosexual romance film to be a big box-office hit. And so this is, again, Hollywood is trying to mainstream sexual sin,” LaBarbera said.

“Firefighter prophet” and radical conspiracy theorist Mark Taylor appeared on “The NutriMedical Report Show” yesterday, where he and host Bill Deagle asserted that FBI agent Peter Strzok, Hillary Clinton, and those who oppose President Trump “are not human” and are, in fact, demons.

Deagle, a nutritional supplement proprietor and radio host who recently vowed to kill any liberal protester who dared to harass him, declared that he has an amazing “spiritual gift” that allows him identify “the names of the succubi and incubi inside Peter Strzok” just by looking at him.

“Individuals like Peter Strzok and Hillary Clinton, these are people of clay and iron,” Deagel said. “Clay being human flesh and iron being the trans-dimensional energy that is inside of them. They’re being avatared like a video game … These are not just normal human beings—your brothers and sisters—these are your bothers and sisters who are totally taken over by evil.”

“These people are not human,” Taylor agreed.

“It’s almost like the protests your are seeing now,” Taylor then added. “Those are not protests, those demonstrations; they’re demon-strations. … They’re flailing around, these are demon-strations, these are demons that are manifesting because they know that their time is short.”

Right-wing pastor and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson was joined last week by far-right activist Lauren Southern, who agreed with him that anti-apartheid revolutionary Nelson Mandela was an evil man and that the current government in South Africa is “doing such a poor job” that it makes apartheid look good.

During Southern’s interview on the July 5 episode of Peterson’s show to promote her new white nationalist propaganda film “Farmlands,” which, among other things, presents a whites-only town as a possible solution to violence in South Africa, the duo began discussing their disdain for Nelson Mandela and whether they believed South Africa was better before apartheid was undone.

“Nelson Mandela was an evil man and when they brought him here to our country presenting him as a good person, I was saying ‘No. Nelson Mandela is head of the [African National Congress]. He’s not a good man. Do you agree with me that Nelson Mandela was an evil man?” Peterson asked.

“Well the fact that he introduced his opposition with 57 public bombings and was part of the Communist Party, I don’t think that’s an opinion. I think it’s an objective statement. If he had been white, or even Asian, or anything but black and during the time he was in, I think that there would be far more criticism,” Southern responded.

Later in the interview, Peterson said, “It seems to me people were better under apartheid than they are with what’s happening now.”

Southern seemed briefly surprised before she eventually argued that apartheid may seem better because the government in South Africa is “doing such a poor job.”

“That’s something that, of course, I feel like I can’t even give my opinion on. I would say under apartheid—just because things were better under apartheid does not mean apartheid was good. What it means is that the government now is doing such a poor job and socialism is so bad that it’s literally worse than apartheid,” Southern said.

Lana Lokteff #racist rightwingwatch.org

Lana Lokteff, a host for the white nationalist media shop Red Ice, told viewers that she believed that representations of interracial couples and mixed-race children in media are “more devious than blatant in-your-face mass murdering.”

In a video clip uploaded yesterday, Lokteff attempted to explain her theories about why she believes that interracial relations “are pushed on white women.” She argued that media depictions of interracial couples put pressure on white women to enter interracial relationships and that those media depictions are part of a larger, more sinister plot.

“Any time I see [interracial couples], I can’t help but to feel they care more about the attention than their family. That’s why they have to be so loud and annoying about it instead of quietly living their life,” Lokteff said.

But Lokteff’s issue with media’s depictions of interracial couples and mixed-race people doesn’t just stop at her personal grievances. Rather, she says, it reflects a more ominous plot to erase white people off the globe—although she doesn’t expand on who she believes is orchestrating this ludicrous conspiracy.

“Between the promotion of interracial relationships, mixed race babies, open borders, promoting non-white is most beautiful and exotic and white pride is wicked, and melting blobs in all and only European countries, the sinister agenda is obvious: Destroy European people and replace them with the ‘new’ Europeans. You’re only a good European if you no longer look white. This is wicked, hateful Europhobic propaganda. It’s so devious, so underhanded and so wrong.”

She then compared the depiction of mixed race couples in media to genocide.

Lokteff said, “When you get down to it, this dirty propaganda is trying to destroy, in whole or in part, a group of people and trying to prevent births within that group. That, folks, constitutes as genocide. It’s more devious than blatant in-your-face mass murdering, but give it time.”

She added that other people who aren’t white “get this propaganda too” but that “their homelands still exist.”

Stefan Molyneux, a video blogger popular with far-right and alt-right audiences, claimed that it was actually “political correctness” and not loose guns regulations that enabled the mass murder of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida last month.

In a video uploaded yesterday, Molyneux sought to break down what he believed to be “the ugly truth” about the March for Our Lives protests on Saturday, which attracted hundreds of thousands of people across the United States to stand with survivors of the shooting who demanded gun reform measures aimed at making schools safer.

“Now, of course, the proximate cause for all of this was the shooting in Broward County recently—the shooting of the children. And because there is an emotionally reactive group of people who either have never been exposed to the facts and the truth about that shooting, about guns as a whole, or simply have simply ignored it if they have been exposed to it, or they’re simply useful happy bleating idiots—the puppets of the puppet master—speaking out against the elemental freedoms of the United States,” Molyneux said.

Gavin McInnes And Alex Jones Complain About ‘Sexless, Depressed, Old, Chubby Dikes’

Gavin McInnes, a CRTV host that also leads a bizarre boys club, told Infowars host Alex Jones that their children will not have to deal with “annoying, childless, lesbian feminists because they’re all going to be gone.”

McInnes joined Jones on Infowars today to explain why he believes far-right activists like himself have a superior ideology to modern liberalism. Part of that superiority, he argued, includes the fact that McInnes and others who occupy the same space in the far-right, constantly urge their audiences to start families and have children.

“Their stupid idea is not to breed and not to have families. Our stupid idea is to breed like rats. And they are going to be extinct. Our children are not going to have to deal with these annoying, childless, lesbian feminists because they’re all going to be gone. They’re the dodo birds of Western civilization,” McInnes said.

Jones took a moment to clarify that he and his wife have “nothing against lesbians,” before making clear exactly what he had against lesbians by asking McInnes: “Why are lesbians so uptight?”

“This is a separate thing but I can’t help but notice that gay men are always dancing around in short shorts. Lesbians are always grumpy in ill-fitting denim pants,” McInnes said.

“Exactly,” Jones said.

“It’s got to be sex. Male gays get laid more and getting laid apparently makes you happy because there’s no one grumpier than a lesbian,” McInnes said.

Jones said that “most women grow out” of being lesbians and they “get real happy when they get a man,” claiming that many men are married to former lesbians.

McInnes said “the numbers dwindle drastically” because “hanging out with an obese 40-year-old lesbian and tending to your garden” isn’t quite as “rock and roll” as making out with “another hot chick when you’re drunk” in college.

“Why does this tiny population, this tiny group of sexless, depressed, old, chubby dikes, control so much of the political narrative? Why are entire elections dedicated to something as irrelevant as gay marriage? It’s like the tyranny of the minority,” McInnes.

Jones responded by claiming that Hillary Clinton uses her daughter as a “beard” to conceal that she is a lesbian.

Earlier this year, extremist anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson voiced his disgust over the existence of the film “The Shape Of Water,” fuming that it represented “the end of civilization as we know it” because it promoted “cross-species mating” in direct defiance of the Bible.

Now that the film has won Oscars for best picture and best director, Swanson has returned to warn that God may destroy America because of it.

“The Academy Award ceremonies this week provided the best film and best director Oscar to a violation of the worst possible sexual sin mentioned in Leviticus chapter 18,” Swanson said on his radio program today. “Maybe I’ll just leave it there, I don’t want to defile the ears of my listeners. But this was another milestone in the moral degradation of Hollywood and the nation itself. What it did was it presented the ultimate sexual depravity—and, again, I don’t want anyone thinking what this is—but the ultimate sexual depravity as presented in Leviticus 18 is presented in this movie as a tender and romantic and a beautiful thing. Even saying that is just disgusting.”

Swanson proceeded to read a passage from Leviticus 18 in which God warned the Israelites that they would be destroyed if they dared to engage in such depravity.

“God says, ‘Be careful, I might just bring this to you if you violate my law to the level of egregiousness contained in the moral commands in Leviticus 18,'” Swanson declared. “It’s these abominable practices that are being committed in this nation today and glorified at the highest echelons of the nation.”

Alex Jones #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist who leads Infowars, told listeners that transgender rights activism is secretly paving the way for measures protecting cyborgs and other “new life forms” and that accepting multiple gender identities or sexual orientations is “how you destroy a civilization.”

On Infowars today, Jones featured an interview with Roger Ver, who is an early investor in Bitcoin startup businesses. During the broadcast, Ver was having problems connecting with the Infowars studio. As Jones waited for his producers to work out a better connection, he decided he would “get to what the whole trans movement’s about.”

Jones claimed that executives from Facebook and Twitter have called the Infowars studio to ask them to not use the derogatory phrase “tranny” on air. Jones told listeners that the request had nothing to do with actual transgender people, but rather “it has to do with something bigger.”

“The most protected class are going to be augmented humans—cyborgs, you name it. And you’re going to have humanoids, which again isn’t a man and a woman with the chromosomes splicing together,” Jones said. He then referred to a story about a child born with DNA from three parents. “It’s not a human. It’s something different when you’ve got three parents. And you say, ‘Oh, we just changed some genes over here.’ It changes the whole deal, especially if you start mixing two women.”

“They’re creating new lifeforms and they’re just creating a stampede where you don’t criticize that,” Jones said.

Jones went on to lament that LGBTQ activists sometimes add new letters to the “LGBTQ” abbreviation to reflect different identities and orientations and made a reference to his claim that LGBTQ activists will vilify people who do not offer their cars for people to have sex with. He then predicted that expanded recognition of sexual orientations and gender identities will become the “national religion.”

“It’ll be like the national religion to go ‘L3Q943ABCQPBLV543Z92 dot dot dot 34Q5974,’” Jones said. “I mean, it’s just total mental illness, but it’s how you destroy a civilization.”

Sargon of Akkad and Colin Robertson #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Carl Benjamin, known online by his popular persona “Sargon of Akkad,” expressed his sympathies with the racist alt-right movement this week, including perpetuating alt-right propaganda that Heather Heyer was not killed by a car attack at the Unite the Right earlier this year, but instead suffered a heart attack due to poor health.

Benjamin joined Colin Robertson, known online as “Millennial Woes,” in the first installment of Robertson’s “Millenniyule 2017” interview series on Sunday, to discuss the future of the alt-right. As first pointed out by leftist twitter personality “Tom Bloke,” an early part of the discussion included Benjamin echoing white nationalist propaganda surrounding the murder of Heyer, a liberal counter-protester at the racist Unite the Right rally earlier this year in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“As I understand it, I thought Heather Hayes or Heyer or whatever her name was, I thought she died of a heart attack,” Benjamin said.

“Yes. It looks like what happened is that she was shocked by seeing the car crash happening and had a heart attack,” Robertson said.

Benjamin laughed and when Robertson remarked Heyer’s alleged heart attacked seemed “a bit dramatic,” Benjamin said, “It’s more that the alt-right being blamed for someone having a heart attack, someone in tremendously bad physical condition has a heart attack, and suddenly the alt-right has murdered someone.”

[...]

Later in the interview, Benjamin pushed another alt-right conspiracy theory that National Policy Institute white nationalist Richard Spencer was “controlled opposition,” meaning that he was a government agent embedded in the movement to give the alt-right a bad public image.

“The mainstream media could just have a policy of non-engagement and that would be more successful for kettling the alt-right than it would be promoting them. But I mean Richard Spencer is only a household name because of the media. Is Richard Spencer controlled opposition? I’m genuinely curious,” Benjamin asked Robertson.

As the interview began to wrap up, Benjamin gave parting advice to Robertson about successfully advancing the alt-right agenda because he believes that social justice advocates are “a fucking massive problem”

“You’ve got diversity in everything—everything,” Benjamin said.

“I know. I know, it’s terrible,” Robertson said.

“Yeah, it’s terrifying, isn’t it? But like [social justice warriors are] not just a loud fringe. They’re not. This what people have to—say ‘Oh, SJWs, they’re not a big problem’—no, they’re a fucking massive problem. I mean holy fuck, the reason thousands of young girls are getting raped is not because the police didn’t want to do something or couldn’t do something. It was because they were afraid of social justice warriors calling them racist,” Benjamin explained.

Benjamin later went on to conclude that “worst case scenario for the alt-right’s success in this endeavor,” referring to racial segregation, “is less intolerable to me and my family than the SJW success. So from a tactical evaluation, I have to choose this angle. I have to try and explain to the alt-right that they can get what they want and they should take this gambit, even if it means the end of liberal democracy.”

Mark Taylor #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Self-proclaimed “firefighter prophet” and right-wing conspiracy theorist Mark Taylor made another appearance on Dave Daubenmire’s “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning, where he proclaimed that President Trump will soon arrest so many high-profile pedophiles and satanists that it’ll require years of military-style tribunals to prosecute them all.

Claiming that there are nearly 5,000 sealed indictments in place against powerful leaders, Taylor asserted that Trump, who is “ten steps ahead of everybody,” has put the National Guard on notice to prepare for civil unrest in the wake of mass arrests. Taylor asserted that Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are among those set to be indicted, claiming that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is methodically building cases against them so that they cannot escape on any sort of technicality.

“This corruption goes so deep and so wide and so long that it is going to take military-style tribunals to deal with the treasonous acts that are being committed right now in the United States,” Taylor said. “You are going to see people get rounded up that are going to blow your mind.”

“The pedophilia and the child sacrifice thing, I think it is absolutely huge,” he added. “It is going to boggle the mind when they find out and start digging … Strap in, get ready for the ride because this is going to be going on for years, these military-style tribunals. They’re going to make Nuremberg look like a cakewalk.”

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Over the holiday weekend, President Trump tweeted out a link to a web page that lists all of the amazing things that he has supposedly accomplished during his first year in office. Not surprisingly, MAGA Pill, the website that produced the list, turned out to be a fringe outlet that promotes wild conspiracy theories, including the work of right-wing “journalist” and crackpot conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin.

Not long before Trump tweeted out the link, MAGA Pill’s Twitter account had been promoting Crokin’s claim that the government is in possession of multiple sex tapes featuring Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin and an underage girl, which she claims would prove that the Pizzgate conspiracy theory is true.

Crokin was naturally elated by what she saw as Trump’s endorsement of her work and posted a video on YouTube yesterday claiming that Trump’s tweet of the MAGA Pill website was “a nod to myself” and “a thumb’s up” to the entire Pizzagate conspiracy theory community.

Crokin said that she had long suspected that an anonymous poster known only as “Q” who posts seemingly insider information about Trump and his administration on 4Chan forum boards may in fact be Trump himself and/or one of his high-ranking advisers. Those who follow Q’s posts are said to be “following the white rabbit” and Crokin excitedly claimed that Trump’s MAGA Pill tweet was confirmation of Q’s insider status and the accuracy of his information.

“Here is why this matters,” Crokin said. “I know for a fact that President Trump doesn’t just retweet random accounts. He vets all the people that he retweets, he vets websites that he retweets, he has his people look into these people, he has his people look into these accounts and their websites. There is absolutely no way in hell President Trump didn’t know that @MAGAPILL promotes the white rabbit, promotes Q, has been following Q. There is no way that President Trump didn’t know that MAGA Pill’s pinned tweet was a video of me—sorry, Hillary—talking about Hillary Clinton’s sex tape.”

“President Trump is very thorough,” she continued. “He is very sophisticated and he is very strategic and everything that he does has multiple meanings and he drops clues and messages and hidden messages all the time. That is how he operates, alright? So I firmly believe President Trump retweeting @MAGAPILL was a nod to MAGA Pill, was a nod to myself, was a nod to literally all the people that go on 4Chan, all the people that have been following the white rabbit, all the people that have been talking about Q, all the people that have been exposing pedogate, Pizzagate, child sex-trafficking, Uranium One, you name it. This was a nod to us, this was a nod to this community, this was President Trump giving us a thumbs-up.”

“That was his way of letting us know that Q is real,” Crokin said, “and I also believe that this is his way of letting us know Pizzagate is real, the child sex-trafficking is real and, yeah, those disgusting sex tapes exist.”

Cronkin has recently taken to fellow Pizzagate hoaxer Mike Cernovich’s newest media venture, “Cerno News,” to espouse her bizarre Pizzagate theories, including the idea that Tony Podesta wears red shoes because the Illuminati uses “The Wizard of Oz” to control the minds of its child sex slaves.

Sandy Rios #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Religious Right radio host and American Family Association official Sandy Rios continued her increasingly desperate defenses of Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore by begging Alabama voters to not let the “ick factor” of the allegations against Moore prevent them from voting for him.

Rios pleaded with listeners this morning to support Moore despite allegations that he made sexual advances on teenage girls—one as young as 14 years old—while he was in his 30s. Further reporting has revealed additional accusations against Moore and that he was banned from a shopping mall for trying to solicit teenage girls.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please—I’m begging you, really—especially those of you in Alabama, not to stay home. Do not let the ‘ick’ factor set in because that’s what the establishment in Washington wants,” Rios said. “They want to cast enough taint on Judge Moore—and it will be somebody else next. Trust me.”

Rios went on to claim that if the establishment GOP is successful in supposedly orchestrating the downfall of Moore, a popular theory among many right-wing pundits, it will undermine the Religious Right as a whole.

“If they can destroy him, honestly, I don’t think that Christian conservatives will have a chance. We will be so marginalized, and ‘marginalized’ probably doesn’t even capture it. You can already see how hated we are,” Rios said.

Moore, Rios said, is hated because “he has stood so strongly for the Ten Commandments” and “marriage between a man and a woman.” Rios claimed that Matt Drudge, owner of the popular news aggregate “The Drudge Report,” lashed out at Moore because of Moore’s stance on marriage.

“The reason Drudge is so dreadful toward Moore is because Matt Drudge is a homosexual,” Rios said.

jim bakker #fundie rightwingwatch.org

On his television show on Friday, prepper pastor Jim Bakker said that people would realize that the End Times are upon us if they would simply study the Bible because if they do, they’ll be able to recognize that the signs mentioned in the book of Revelation are already happening.

For instance, Bakker said, people who have studied the Bible will realize that Apache helicopters were mentioned in Revelation 9:

The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.
“Everything in the Bible is not a fairy tale,” Bakker said. “It’s all things that you can learn [if you study] … Do you know the Apache helicopter, I think, is in the Bible. John the Revelator saw it, he heard it, he saw it, it’s there. It said it had a face of a man; look in the helicopter, there’s the face of a man. It had a blue breastplate; it’s there. It’s so easy to understand the revelation if you read it.”

Gavin McInnes #sexist rightwingwatch.org

CRTV commentator Gavin McInnes, who also leads the bizarre, misogynistic “Proud Boys” fraternity, said that the historic election of several openly transgender people to state and local offices earlier this week can be blamed on men allowing women to vote.

On yesterday’s episode of “Get Off My Lawn,” McInnes was joined by Gateway Pundit’s White House reporter Lucian Wintrich, who joined him in attributing major Republican losses to Democrats campaigning on “identity politics” by putting forward diverse candidates. They went on to attribute the election of transgender people, including Virginia state assembly candidate Danica Roem, to women’s ability to vote.

“The liberals say, ‘Maybe we should give up on identity politics,’ but you look at all the Sikhs and black people and trans who won in this election and all these unprecedented cases. It had nothing to do with policy. It was all identity politics,” McInnes said.

He continued, “I was looking at those two trannies who won. There’s no substance there at all. And I think it’s because we let women vote. Women have been voting now based on their ‘feels’ for many years. They brought us Obama, no substance.”

“It’s all just girls, girls, girls playing politics,” McInnes said.

Wintrich said he wanted to know when liberals would realize that “playing the intersectionality game to elect people” results in “terrible people that are ruining the country.”

“I’m excited to see how badly this tranny actually fucks up Virginia,” Wintrich said.

Last week, right-wing “journalist” Liz Crokin alleged that the fact that Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta likes to wear red shoes is a sign that he is a pedophile because the Illuminati uses the movie “The Wizard of Oz” to brainwash child sex slaves.

Making a second appearance on a program hosted by one-time “Survivor” contestant Anna Khait that was streamed on Mike Cernovich’s Facebook page last Thursday, Crokin continued on her mission to expose the supposed fact that leading government, entertainment and business leaders are involved in a massive satanic pedophile cult by linking Podesta’s choice of shoes to Illuminati mind-control.

“Tony Podesta is obsessed with his red shoes,” Crokin said. “There is symbolism for red shoes in the occult and it’s also tied to satanic ritualistic abuse and the trafficking of children.”

“The Illuminati, the elites, they use ‘The Wizard of Oz’ to mind control child slaves,” she added. “They use certain films to program children and part of the programming is having them watch these films and they also sexually abuse them and they physically abuse them because the abuse splits their personality and creates different personalities, so then they are able to program them and control them and they virtually become MK-Ultra programming.”

“This is a known thing,” Crokin insisted. “They use ‘The Wizard of Oz’ to mind control these child sex abuse victims. Well, what does Dorthy wear in ‘The Wizard of Oz’? Red shoes!”

Wayne Allyn Root #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing radio host, commentator, conspiracy theorist and Donald Trump–obsessed sycophant Wayne Allyn Root delivered a furious rant in defense of Roy Moore on his radio program last week after reports surfaced that Moore had pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s, demanding to know why the press never investigated reports that both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama had gay relationships.

“They’re scumbags,” Root said of Moore’s critics, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whom Root insisted is “evil” and “looks like he died 20 years ago.”

Root said that based on the photos he has seen of the women who have accused Moore of pursuing them when they were teenagers, “they were beautiful young girls and they could have passed for 20” and so even if Moore did “hit on a couple of them,” it is no big deal because “every time a see a video or picture of [Joe Biden], he’s got his hand inappropriately on a woman’s ass.”

“Where is The Washington Post to dig into Hillary Clinton’s background?” Root asked. “Where are the women Hillary’s dated all these years? How come they don’t come forward? Where are they? Everybody knows about them.”

After Root suggested that Clinton was responsible for the deaths of Vince Foster and Seth Rich, he also demanded to know why the press never covered the rumors regarding Obama.

“I’ve heard the rumors about Bathhouse Barry,” he said. “Everyone has. Bathhouse Barry, well known in Chicago. By the way, not a rumor from a stranger I don’t know, rumors from my friends in Chicago, who are people in the know who tell me Barack Obama has a sordid past.”

Mark Taylor #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Mark Taylor, the “firefighter prophet” and right-wing conspiracy theorist who claims that God told him that Donald Trump would become president years ago, appeared on Greg Hunter’s “USAWatchdog” program last weekend, where he revealed that God told him that two of the five former presidents will soon die and the other three will face jail time as divine retribution for criticizing President Trump.

Taylor said that when he saw all five former presidents gathered at an event to raise money for hurricane relief, he received a word from the Lord that “two will be taken, three will be shaken.”

“They were doing this Hurricane Harvey relief effort,” Taylor said. “They were trying to raise money for Hurricane Harvey, but we all know that is a bunch of lies. These guys could care less about people, it’s about their agenda. They disguised it as a relief effort for Hurricane Harvey victims and they go in there and they trash Donald Trump.”

“The Bible says, ‘Do not touch my anointed, but especially my prophets,'” he continued. “These guys have now touched God’s anointed, Donald Trump. They used it as a platform to go in there and attack.”

Taylor said that God told him that because of their supposed attack on Trump, “the covenant that these five presidents have had with that entity called Baal—because Baal is the strongman over America—is going to be broken. And then He said, ‘Two of these ex-presidents will be taken and and three will be shaken.'”

“God is just going to take these guys home, period. He is going to remove them and it will be a sign for certain things,” said Taylor. “The other three will be shaken and I believe that two of them will run the risk of going to prison and the third one will also be shaken due to having to testify or legal issues or whatever the case may be. Now, I don’t know if all three of those will go to prison, but I believe there is a very good possibility that two out of the three could face jail time because of what they have done.”

Liz Crokin, a right-wing “journalist” who has dedicated her career to exposing the supposed fact that leading government, entertainment and business leaders are involved in a massive satanic pedophile cult, posted a video on the Liberty One TV network earlier this week in which she asserted that a sex tape featuring Hillary Clinton will soon be released and will prove once and for all that the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory is true.

Citing an article from Newsweek about a Russian internet troll who claimed to have worked for a propaganda agency that produced a fake Clinton sex tape that was designed to be released during the 2016 election in order to help Donald Trump, Crokin insisted that a real Clinton sex tape does exist and that the Newsweek article was just an effort to condition people to dismiss it as fake once it is released.

Asserting that it was no coincidence that Newsweek posted this article since the magazine is an arm of the “deep state” and employs known pedophiles, Crokin said that a genuine sex tape featuring Clinton, her top aide Huma Abedin and an underage girl was discovered by authorities when they seized the laptop owned by Abedin’s husband, Anthony Weiner.

Crokin claimed that there were so many videos featuring high-level political figures doing horrible things to children found on Weiner’s laptop that when NYPD officers watched them, “it made grown men cry.”

It is only a matter of time before all of these files are released, Crokin said, “and if and when this happen, let me tell you, no one will be able to deny that Pizzagate isn’t real. Nobody will be able to deny that the likes of the Clintons and John Podesta and many, many politicians and many members of Congress are involved in the satanic rape and torture of kids.”

Extremist right-wing activist Theodore Shoebat responded to yesterday’s mass shooting at a church in Texas by posting a video on his website in which he said that atheists in America must be subjected to an inquisition and put to death.

Shoebat, who was featured in a radically anti-gay documentary in 2015 along with various Religious Right activists and Republican elected officials, declared that the fact that the man responsible for the deadly attack was reportedly an atheist shows that atheism represents a dire threat to Christians in America and must be dealt with harshly.

“Sodomites and atheists need to be purged from society,” Shoebat said. “Sodomites automatically need to be put to death, that’s a no-brainer because they have already committed the crime of homosexuality. Atheists, on the other hand, they need to be inquisited, bottom line. They need to be inquisited and I think that when you have atheist enclaves in society, when you have atheist strongholds in society, atheist establishments that are very influential and when you see how fanatic they are, how much they hate Christianity, how much they hate God, how much they hate the church, you really can’t tolerate people like that and those people need the death penalty.”

Liz Crokin is a right-wing “reporter” and rabid conspiracy theorist who has dedicated her career to exposing the supposed fact that leading government, entertainment and business leaders are involved in a massive satanic pedophile cult. Recently, she appeared on a program hosted by a former “Survivor” contestant to discuss the various Hollywood sexual abuse scandals, where she declared that Bill and Hillary Clinton are satanists and pedophiles and urged the government to investigate critics of President Trump like Alec Baldwin, Stephen Colbert and Michael Moore to uncover their ties to pedophilia.

Crokin said that the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood “completely coincide with the occult” because this abuse “is directly related [to] satanism … It is part of an occult ritual that these celebrities, politicians, powerful people are engaged in because they believe in Lucifer, they believe in Satan and they believe that sexually abusing children literally gives them spiritual power.”

Crokin asserted that she “knew that Kevin Spacey is a pedophile” because he “is very tight with the Clintons,” whom she asserted “are both sexual predators and are pedophiles and that will be proven to be true very soon.”

Reiterating her belief that those who criticize Trump are likely involved in pedophilia, Crokin declared that “the people that are involved in child sex trafficking, that are involved in pedophilia—or maybe not pedophilia but have some major criminal activity to hide—they’re the ones screaming the loudest against Trump.”

While promoting his forthcoming book, “The Deeper State: Inside the War on Trump by Corrupt Elites, Secret Societies, and the Builders of An Imminent Final Empire,” Maginnis explained that there are three levels of influence at work in Washington: the elected officials and government bureaucrats, the lobbyists and interest groups, and the “demonic” forces that “are manipulating the second and the first” groups.

Vox Day #fundie rightwingwatch.org

After spending weeks hyping a new comic book series promising to spark outrage among progressive comic book fans, alt-right activist Theodore Beale—known online as Vox Day—has delivered: A trailer for the “Alt-Hero” comic book series has been released.

Beale managed to raise more than $32,000 overnight after releasing the trailer, meeting what he said was his first fundraising goal toward the creation of the comic series. The fundraising page claims the comic is “intended to challenge and eventually replace the SJW-converged comics of DC and Marvel.” (“SJW” is Alt-Right shorthand for “social justice warrior.”)

Beale told his fans that major comic makers are “methodically, purposefully, absolutely attempting to destroy every value—every American value, every Western value, every Christian value that they can get their hands on” by creating spinoffs of popular comic series that depict classic characters as black, female and Muslim. Beale’s answer to that perceived attack is to fund the creation of a comic series that features “triggering” white characters that smoke cigarettes, wear Confederate flag costumes and combat left-wing protesters.

The trailer, which was debuted yesterday, features a character that is “doing the job the police don’t want to” and “cleaning up the streets one illegal at a time.” The series promises “storylines, not social justice” and revolves around a collection of superhuman heroes that defy a United Nations “Superhuman Protection Council” and act as vigilante crime fighters who apparently use their rogue status to target undocumented immigrants and left-wing protesters.

As Beale describes it:

"What I found the most interesting was the idea that anything short of an undefined “success”, which as we all know will be redefined and re-redefined as Alt??Hero meets with the usual metrics of success over time, is tantamount to “sad humilation”. Think about how twisted one’s psyche has to be to make that connection, and what a crushing fear of failure one would have to have in order to think that way.

That is the heart of the SJW, which is not only terrified of failure, but is terrified that someone, somewhere, will be successful doing something of which the SJW does not approve.

Of course, SJWs have good reason to be terrified of Alt??Hero. Because they know they are the true villains and the enemy in the cultural war."

Rick Wiles #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

End Times radio host Rick Wiles spent a portion of his “TruNews” program yesterday warning that the controversy over athletes kneeling during the national anthem is a communist plot to destroy America that is being orchestrated by Barack Obama.

“It’s a Marxist communist psychological warfare operation,” said Wiles. “I assure you the man behind all of it is Barack Hussein Obama, America’s chief street organizer, rabble-rouser, troublemaker. He’s behind this stuff.”

“They want violence, they want anger, they want a clash, they’re making it white vs black,” Wiles continued, asserting that this is all part of an ongoing Marxist plot to destroy key pillars of our American heritage, starting with Confederate monuments and the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and soon to be focused on destroying Christmas and rodeos.

“You have to understand,” Wiles said, “what the communists do is urinate on everything.”

“At the bottom line, what is this all about?” he asked. “It’s about attacking culture—destroy the culture so that it collapses. They’re invading the county with illegal immigrants, they’re attacking the values of the nation, they’re coming at the country from every side. This has been going on for 50-some years but we’re now at the final stage where the doors of the city, the gates, are starting to buckle. They’ve got the battering rams now … This is where the barbarians come through the gates. That’s how close we are to the overthrow of the republic. And all out communist revolution.”

“Obama is still directing his revolution and he will not stop until there is blood in the streets,” Wiles warned.

On his webcast yesterday morning, Religious Right activist and former football coach Dave Daubenmire unleashed a rant about NFL players who choose to kneel during the national anthem, during which he also railed against soccer.

“American boys play football,” he said, “they don’t play soccer.”

Daubenmire returned to the topic during his webcast today, suggesting that there is an effort to encourage young boys to play soccer in order to undermine the institution of family and insisting that people who can’t see this obvious fact are simply blind to the spiritual forces at work.

Daubenmire said that during his coaching years, he routinely saw “little 5 and 6-year-old boys drug off over to the soccer field and their daddies didn’t even know what soccer was, the daddies couldn’t talk to their sons about, ‘Oh yeah, back when I played soccer’ and then the boys could never talk to their dads about when they played football because they took them all and stuck them over in soccer.”

“Why do we have soccer fields everywhere?” he asked. “Because it takes a man to play football and mommies don’t like seeing their little boys get knocked down, so mommies put them into soccer where they get little knee pads and they don’t really hurt each other.”

“What does grandpa get to do on Saturday morning?” Daubenmire continued. “Go watch my grandson play football? No. He’s a penguin, he’s running around hitting balls with his head. I can’t relate to him playing soccer. But I can go to a football game and watch him get knocked on his butt, be able to tell him after the game, ‘You know, that happened to me back when I was playing too and let me tell you what to do.’ But I can’t help him with soccer.”

“Do you guys think I’m crazy?” he asked. “I don’t care. I’m telling you [the truth.]”

WorldNetDaily contributors #racist rightwingwatch.org

In an article today with the title “Will Trump Open U.S. Doors To Another Country’s Muslims?,” WorldNetDaily author Leo Hohmann attempts to whitewash the violence being perpetrated by Myanmar’s military against civilians in the country’s Rohingya Muslim minority, warning that Vice President Mike Pence’s call for action on the crisis could portend more Muslim refugees being welcomed to the U.S.

Hohmann interviews anti-refugee activist Ann Corcoran, who says that Buddhists in Myanmar just “want to retain their ethnic and cultural identity” and don’t want to invite “troublemakers” to “come in and procreate.”

“I am perfectly happy with anyone who shares our same holidays, learns our language, they grew up watching American TV shows, listening to our music, but that’s not the same as groups of people who want to force us to live like them and ultimately take over politically,” she added. “The Buddhists get it. They are being very politically incorrect”:

"Corcoran said there is no escaping the fact that the majority Buddhists don’t want the Rohingya Muslims in their country, but that should not be used as a pretense for the United States to take the Rohingya in as refugees.

“Why is this our problem,” she asks. “Should we be surprised that the Buddhists want Burma to be a Buddhist country? Just like Japan wants to remain Japanese, Hungary wants their country to be for Hungarians and Poland for the Poles,” she said. “Personally I don’t have a big problem with that. It doesn’t mean anyone who is not a Pole is going to be kept out of Poland, but they aren’t going to invite troublemakers, welcome them into their country, to come in and pro-create. They want to retain their ethnic and cultural identity.”

Likewise, Corcoran, who has adopted children from Vietnam, said she and most of her readers have no problem with Africans, Asians or Mexicans who want to join the great “melting pot” of America and respect its values of tolerance, freedom and pluralism.

“I am perfectly happy with anyone who shares our same holidays, learns our language, they grew up watching American TV shows, listening to our music, but that’s not the same as groups of people who want to force us to live like them and ultimately take over politically,” she said.

“The Buddhists get it. They are being very politically incorrect.”

…

The stories being put out about the Rohingya Muslims are clearly being crafted with the intention of stirring up sympathy for the illegal aliens of another country, much the same way the incessant media coverage preceded the Obama administration’s decision to import more than 15,000 Syrian refugees in the last two years of Obama’s term.

Whether the media barrage about the Rohingya will have a similar effect on the Trump administration remains to be seen.

But the wave has already started.

More than 19,000 Rohingya Muslims have been sent to the United States over the last 10 years — 13,500 of them coming during President Obama’s eight years in office and about 5,000 under President George W. Bush. Already 715 Rohingya have entered the U.S. since Trump took office in January.

The biggest Rohingya Muslim communities in the U.S. are located in Chicago, in Phoenix, Arizona, and in Nashua, New Hampshire, where recently a Rohingya man has been charged with inappropriate sexual contact with young girls.

The Rohingya mosque in Phoenix, meanwhile, has been encouraging its members to protest against the “genocide” going on in their home country.

“Once their population gets high enough, the political agitation begins,” Corcoran said."

Hohmann also interviews Philip Haney, a former Department of Homeland Security staffer who is now a regular on the anti-Muslim speaking circuit. Haney said, “We are treating the Rohingya exactly like the Palestinians, everyone is a victim, so we pay for their problem.”

Roy Moore #racist rightwingwatch.org

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who is facing Sen. Luther Strange in the state’s Republican primary runoff tomorrow, told Religious Right radio host Sandy Rios that he would support using military force to stop undocumented immigrants from crossing the southern border of the United States.

During an interview recorded last Friday and aired this morning, Moore responded to a negative ad that accuses him of not supporting a southern border wall and standing with Hillary Clinton instead of President Donald Trump. The ad, paid for Senate Leadership Fund super PAC, run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s former chief of staff, was described by Politifact as “mostly false.”

“Every ad they’ve run daily, every hour, on every television, on every radio, it’s negative and false accusing me of not standing for a wall,” Moore told Rios. “You know, I want to stop illegal aliens coming across the border. I don’t think we’ve got time right now to sit and wait. They haven’t done anything.”

“I’d put the military down there,” Moore declared.

Moore expanded that if he was president, “this thing would be stopped and then we’ll build a wall.”

Ann Coulter #racist rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing provocateur Ann Coulter suggested last week that if President Donald Trump “continues down this path” of appearing to be open to immigration reform, one of the only solutions could be “death squads for the people who ruined America.”

Last week, Coulter appeared on the “Todd Starnes Show” to discuss Trump’s apparent willingness to betray his campaign promise to oppose programs like DACA, which is designed to protect people who immigrated illegally to the United States as children.

“We have made as clear as you can possibly make it, we want less immigration,” Coulter said. “Stop dumping the third-world on the country.”

She then claimed that Trump was elected into the White House because of his stance on immigration and bemoaned Trump’s recent mixed signals on the DACA program.

“If he continues down this path, well I guess there are three options. There’s the organizing the death squads for the people who ruined America, because there will be no more hope,” Coulter said.

After some hesitation Coulter continued, “I guess the other possibility is to – well I don’t think anyone would mind him being impeached. What’s the faction opposing that? And then at least we’ll get Mike Pence. But in terms of saving America, maybe a third party.”

Right Wing Watch reported that Coulter made similar remarks at CPAC in 2014, where she issued the following call to arms: “Amnesty is forever and you got to vote for the Republicans one more time and just make it clear; but if you pass amnesty, that’s it, it’s over and then we organize the death squads for the people who wrecked America.”

Theodore Shoebat #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Last weekend, police shot and killed an LGBTQ activist at Georgia Tech and extremist right-wing activist Theodore Shoebat is applauding them for it and hoping that more police officers will be “given the opportunity” to kill LGBTQ people.

Shoebat, who was featured in a radically anti-gay documentary in 2015 along with various Religious Right activists and Republican elected officials, posted a video yesterday in which he praised police for killing Scout Schultz and expressed his desire to see more officers kill gay people on the grounds that they present a danger to society.

Shoebat said “it really doesn’t matter” whether Schultz possessed a weapon or represented a threat to the police before being killed “because this sodomite should have been shot anyway.”

“Him being a sodomite … his perversion was dangerous enough and it was justification enough to kill this freak,” he said. “He was already a danger to society because of his perversity and so I think it was absolutely right for this officer to kill this freak. And I hope that more and more officers are given the opportunity to kill these freaks. That’s what I will say. This is what needs to be happening anyway. There needs to be a law that says that homosexuality is a danger to society and therefore those who push homosexuality and those who participate in this perversity are indeed worthy of death.”

David Kupelian and E.W. Jackson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

On his radio program yesterday, Religious Right activist E.W. Jackson interviewed WorldNetDaily’s David Kupelian, where the two agreed that homosexuality is obviously unnatural based on the fact that small children are grossed out by the sight of two men or two women kissing.

“We now have 4-year-old kids in preschool where we have lesbian and transgender teachers,” Kupelian said. “They go in and they show two women kissing, two men kissing; there is a natural ick factor where children who have not been corrupted say, ‘Ick, that’s gross.’ I’m sorry, it is gross and the grossness is something that God has put in their mind. People may not like to hear this but it actually is gross and it’s a natural reaction of little innocent kids.”

Jackson agreed, saying,”Let’s face it, you put before a group of 4, 5, 6, 7-year-olds two men kissing and of course they’re going to say, ‘Eww, eww, that’s gross.’ They probably haven’t grown up seeing that, it is unusual to them but the whole point of the left and the LGBT movement is to desensitize people to it, to make it so common that people don’t even react to it.”

“The visceral reaction to it is that something is not right,” Jackson said, “and you see that in the innocence of children … In their heart of heart, they know something is not right about it. And, of course, the Bible teaches us that God has given us a conscience.”

Jim Bakker #fundie rightwingwatch.org

During his interview with Jonathan Cahn this morning, End Times prepper pastor Jim Bakker suggested that he could be murdered for going out in public wearing a hat with a cross on it.

Recounting his recent visit to the White House, Bakker declared that he is “so moved by our president asking for prayer” as he rejoiced that “the president is always asking for prayer” because he is a man “that loves prayer.”

Bakker claimed that President Trump watches his program and has told one of Bakker’s close friend that he likes Bakker because “he got back up” after “something happened in [his] life that knocked [him] down.” (For the record, that “something” that knocked Bakker down was the prison sentence he received after being convicted of dozens of counts of fraud.)

Bakker went on to declare that “everything God’s ever spoke to me has come to pass” while fuming that society has made Christians afraid to share their faith. But Bakker refuses to be controlled by that fear, even though he knows he could be killed simply for wearing a Christian hat in public.

“I wear them out in public and I know I could be shot,” he proclaimed. “I know that. There are crazy people out there, but I’m not going to deny the cross. I will not deny the cross! I won’t.”

Bill O'Reilly #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Bill O’Reilly claimed this morning that progressive protesters calling for the removal of Confederate statues from publicly owned properties are doing so as a “wayside to get to the Constitution” so they can destroy it.

On this morning’s edition of “Breitbart News Daily,” O’Reilly spoke about his new book about the American Revolution before pivoting to discussing progressive protesters who have recently called for cities and states to remove Confederate monuments in the wake of a violent white supremacist Alt-Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month.

“There’s no question in my mind that it’s the Constitution that they ultimately want to overturn,” O’Reilly said. “The statues are just a wayside to get to the Constitution.”

“They never say it, but that’s what it is,” O’Reilly continued. “The statues are just symbols, and I said very early on when I saw this controversy in Charlottesville , ‘Hey, it’s not going to stop with Robert E. Lee or the Confederate generals.’ This is going to go into the fabric of our country.”

Josh Bernstein #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein posted a video recently in which he suggested that God is opposed to the removal of Confederate monuments and is divinely intervening to prevent them from being taken down.

Discussing a decision by “communist” Dallas officials to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee from a city park, Bernstein said that the first crane brought in to do the job was too small, forcing the city to bring in a larger crane. After praising several companies for refusing to help the city with this effort, Bernstein noted that a larger crane was eventually found, but that it got into a fatal accident on its way to the job site.

“I don’t do a religious show,” Bernstein said, “but isn’t this a little odd that two attempts have been made to take down this statue and, for whatever reasons, they have not been successful—the second of which being a fatal accident. Is this divine intervention, folks? Is this maybe a sign from up above, saying you shouldn’t remove this statue?”

For the record, the statue was successfully removed last night.

Steve King #racist rightwingwatch.org

Rep. Steve King of Iowa, one of Congress’ most strident opponents of immigration, was not pleased this week when congressional Democrats announced that they had reached a deal with President Trump to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children, telling Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes yesterday that any such deal should include radical anti-immigrant priorities such as attempting to end the Constitution’s guarantee of birthright citizenship.

King told Starnes that he had spoken with Trump last week before Trump announced that he would rescind the DACA program that provides temporary deportation relief to Dreamers and that he had had a conversation with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly yesterday that was “to a degree reassuring.”

“If there is to be a deal struck” on DACA, he said, “the border security and domestic enforcement needs to be locked in to the absolute maximum.” He added that “on top of that,” making English the country’s official language should be thrown “into the mix” as should a legislative end to birthright citizenship for “babies that are born in the United States to illegal mothers or illegal parents.”

King said he also wanted to see legislation preventing states from counting undocumented immigrants when apportioning congressional districts, which the Supreme Court declined to do last year. That change, he said, would move “between nine and 11 congressional seats out of the Democrats’ hands in states like Florida, Texas, California and up into the hands of Republicans, conservative Republicans, Utah, Indiana and perhaps Iowa.”

On today’s episode of the “Pass The Salt Live” webcast, Religious Right activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire said that the government should stop spending money on the study of the “fake science” of evolution and instead give that money to scientists who will work to prove the existence of God.

“Evolution is fake science, it is not true,” Daubenmire said. “Do you know how much government money goes into science research? If you want to get a government grant, you have to make sure that the research that you do is going to support the positions of the government.”

“I would like to see the government do this,” he continued, “why doesn’t the government fund research into whether or not there is really a God? Wouldn’t that be good?

Brigitte Gabriel #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Brigitte Gabriel, an anti-Islam activist, baselessly claimed today that “over 90 percent of mosques in America” are funded by the Saudi Arabian government in order to teach radical ideology aimed at overturning the United States government.

Speaking with “Breitbart News Daily” this morning, Gabriel agreed with guest host Raheem Kassam’s suggestion that the United States should create a searchable database of information about foreign-funded religious institutions, and claimed that nearly all U.S. mosques are funded by Saudi Arabia to radicalize Muslims against America.

“I think it must be clear where a lot, if not every single foreign-funded religious institution gets its money from in this country,” Kassam said. “I think there has to be an absolutely crystal-clear searchable database so we can see where these Saudis are funding these radical mosques all across the United States.”

“You think they’re not doing it?” Kassam said. “It is happening here too.”

Gabriel added, “To the tune of millions, it’s happening here. Mosques in America are funded by the government of Saudi Arabia. We know that over 90 percent of mosques in America are preaching radical Islamic ideology against our democracy and the overturn of our government, all paid for and funded by the Saudis.”

Ann Coulter #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing provocateur Ann Coulter said yesterday that college students shouldn’t be allowed to vote because they are brainwashed and the minimum age for voting should be 30 years old.

On yesterday’s episode of the “Howie Carr Show,” Coulter vented about The Washington Post’s debunk of claims that massive voter fraud is taking place in New Hampshire; the Post found that many of the alleged fraud cases were actually out-of-state college students from casting legal ballots in New Hampshire.

Coulter first explained to Carr that she didn’t think students should be voting in states where they attend college if they don’t establish permanent residency in that state, but then said that it would be “outrageous” for a college student to change her residency to her college town.

Coulter then reached the conclusion that “college kids shouldn’t be voting” at all.

“It’s just to get the results of 13 years of Chinese-style brainwashing,” Coulter said. “I don’t think that people should be able to vote until they’re 30.”

Sandy Rios and Frank Gaffney #fundie rightwingwatch.org

American Family Radio host Sandy Rios told listeners today that the American Right are unfairly compared to Nazis, because while they are similar to Nazis in the fact that they love their country, they differ in the fact that they don’t try to use their nationalism to commit mass murder.

On this morning’s episode of Rios’ radio show, Center for Security Policy president and anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney spoke with Rios about the Southern Poverty Law Center classifying him as a hate group leader and the current coordinated right-wing campaign against the SPLC. Rios echoed Gaffney’s criticism of the group and attempted to explain why she believes that members of the American Right are wrongly likened to Nazis.

“The whole attribution of being on the Right to being Nazis was people who were loyal to country, and of course Hitler equated that to superiority and the right to kill other people,” Rios said. “When we, as American Right, we love our country too but not because we think we have the right to kill other people or we’re superior. We export goodness. We export help to others. It’s a very different view of your country.”

Earlier in the interview, Gaffney accused “people like George Soros” of enabling a “red-green axis,” a theory that alleges that “red” leftists are partnering with the “green” Islamists in order to, as one paper published at Gaffney’s think tank states, “erase America.”

A partnership has formed between “people on the hard left, among them prominently homosexuals, feminists, Jews, apostates, other minorities,” Gaffney said, “and Islmaists, who hate all of those people.”

“The thing that they seem to have in common is they hate America more and they’re willing to work together to try to transform it,” Gaffney said. “I fear that’s what we’re facing right now.”

During an interview with Religious Right radio host E.W. Jackson yesterday, Republican political operative and right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton reiterated his belief that the white people who “tied their own hands” by ending slavery in America don’t get enough credit for doing so.

“There is no other nation in the world where whites fought whites to free blacks and killed over half a million whites to free blacks,” Barton said. “That’s a lot of people fighting slavery.”

“You’ve also got the situation where that the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, they’re voted for—they’re all civil rights amendments, but guess what? The only guys that could vote back then were white guys,” he added. “You’ve got two-thirds of the whites in Congress and the majority of the whites in three-fourths of the states that said, ‘You know what? We white guys want to tie our hands and make sure that blacks have the same rights that we do.’ It’s whites that were doing that. You never hear anything about that.”

“You hear that whites are all racist,” Barton complained. “No, no, no. You’ve got all these whites that fought and gave their lives so that blacks would not be slaves. You have all these whites who tied their own hands politically to make sure we had equal rights in the Constitution. So there are so many good stories we just don’t get.”

Right-wing columnist, commentator and conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin is fully committed to the idea that there is a massive global satanic pedophile ring run by high-ranking government officials, powerful business executives and celebrities that regularly engage in the ritual sexual abuse and murder of children. Last month, she shared those beliefs with “anointed speaker” Meri Crouley on her “Now Is The Time” program, where Crokin speculated that Sen. Ben Sasse’s opposition to President Trump is rooted in the fact that Sasse may have once been responsible for procuring underage boys for disgraced former House speaker Dennis Hastert.

Crokin encouraged viewers to “look very closely at the people who are screaming the loudest, complaining about President Trump” because “every single one of those people, you’ll find—because I’ve researched all these scumbags—you will find that all of these people have ties to sex trafficking rings, ties to pedophilia, ties to pedophiles.”

“For example, Sen. Ben Sasse from Nebraska” she said. “We know that there was a huge cover-up with the trafficking of young boys to politicians to Omaha, Nebraska.

“It is offensive, it is contrary to our most deeply held values, it divides people, it does not bring them together,” Fischer asserted. “It’s time to have the LGBT flag banned right alongside the Confederate flag. If we’re going to ban one, I submit we need to ban the other.”

Rep. Steve King, the Iowa Republican who famously said that most DREAM Act recipients have “calves the size of cantaloupes” from running drugs across the border and then led the House GOP’s efforts to reel back President Obama’s DACA program, said this morning that President Trump’s decision to end DACA will lead to DREAMers who have been deported creating a Peace Corps-like force that will teach their home countries “how a civilized people interact with each other.”

In an interview on “Breitbart News Radio” today, shortly before Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump administration would be rescinding the DACA program that provides deportation relief to some undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children, King discussed a tweet that he had sent this morning stating that deported DACA recipients “will make great ‘Peace Corp’ volunteers in home countries,” an idea that he also discussed in an op-ed in March.

King argued that DREAMers who have been deported to their home countries will make a large, involuntary Peace Corps like force that could create the “best economic and cultural development, civilizational development that, say, Mexico could ever experience”:

"I’m making this point that if we shut off the DACA program, and there are 800,000 of them in the United States today, they would deploy—and I use that word that way—back to their home territories, most likely. And they would go back there with a U.S. taxpayer-funded education, many of them the college education, they will have top-notch English skills, they would understand how a free-enterprise economy works, how a generally corrupt-free society, first world works. They would have seen the transportation system we have, the educational system, the research and development systems that we have, how a civilized people interact with each other. All of that would go with them back to their home countries, and wouldn’t that be the best economic and cultural development, civilizational development that, say, Mexico could ever experience?

If these are their best and brightest—some of them are—just give them to these people that advertise DACA and what if their words are right? Send them back home again, it will have far more impact than you’ll get out of Peace Corps volunteers."

Later in the interview, King argued that legal immigration is a “natural filtration system” that has already brought the best people from other countries to the U.S. He also returned to his infamous “cantaloupe calves” remark, saying that “most of these guys that are carrying these packs [across the border] that range from 65 pounds up to 90 pounds or so, most of these guys that are carrying this, they’re younger than 18 years old” and may lie to get DACA status.

Mat Staver #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Mat Staver, the head of the anti-LGBTQ legal group Liberty Counsel, returned to his favorite analogy last week, saying that the Southern Poverty Law Center’s labeling of his group as an anti-gay hate group is part of a persecution of Christians in America reminiscent of the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany, and linked the removal of Confederate monuments throughout the country to a larger “civil war against our values” happening in the U.S.

Several years ago, the SPLC started adding anti-gay groups like Liberty Counsel to its lists of hate groups, noting that its decision to label these groups as hate groups was generally “based on their propagation of known falsehoods” about LGBTQ people and specifying that “[v]iewing homosexuality as unbiblical does not qualify organizations for listing as hate groups.” However, this has not stopped many of the anti-LGBTQ groups whom the SPLC has listed from claiming that they are merely on the list because of an opposition to marriage equality.

In an interview on VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program on August 22, Staver said that SPLC knows that these anti-LGBTQ groups “are not violent organizations, they know that they are Christian organizations, and they know that they oppose any kind of hatred or violence. They just don’t agree with us on the issue of marriage.” (SPLC has never claimed that Liberty Counsel or its anti-LGBTQ allies are “violent organizations.”)

When the host of the program, Jim Schneider, asked how far the nation would let this sort of thing go, Staver issued a dire warning.

“I think that’s a question that everyone listening here needs to answer,” he said, “I think we’ve crossed the line and we can’t let this go any further. We’ve got to push back, it cannot happen like this. You know, if you go back into the 1930s, what ultimately happened back then with the Jews—and history, you know, there’s other histories you can point to—but they began to ultimately ban Jews from public employment, then ban Jews from their private employment, then put a Star of David on their ID and a Star of David on their passport, restrict their travel, restrict their income opportunity, and eventually you know what happened, we had to fight a World War II over that issue.”

(Speaking of travel restrictions, Staver went on the radio to defend President Trump’s travel ban for residents of several Muslim-majority nations earlier this year.)

Later in the interview, Staver lamented the “coarsening of discourse and a lack of morals and integrity” in American political debates, which he chalked up to “the erosion of our Judeo-Christian values” and what he claimed is intolerance of dissent.

“That is so much different than anything we’ve ever had before,” he said, “and continuing on this way, I think it’s almost, it’s like a civil war against our values, it’s a war against the very essence of who we are.”

He continued: “And there’s a number, like Antifa, that’s an anarchist group, they call themselves anarchists. I mean, an anarchist is somebody who wants to create anarchy, this is to just to completely destroy all the institutions. And you see this happening with the monuments. You know, I understand the concern people have against the Confederate monuments, I get all that, I understand that, I have a lot of people, a lot of friends that are affected by that. On the other hand, I have a lot of friends who say, ‘Look, this is part of our history.’”

He added that “if we want to start taking down our history, our monuments, because certain people were not at the same level that we want them to be today” the only monuments that would remain would be those of Jesus Christ.

On his radio show last week, right-wing pastor Kevin Swanson argued that the annual Burning Man festival is trying to bring back human sacrifice, but has been unable to do so only “because of the influence of Christ” on our legislators who recognize that the practice is prohibited by Old Testament law.

“The only way that we can defend a law, a civil law, against the worship of false gods by way of human sacrifice or animal sacrifice is by applying Old Testament law,” Swanson said. “We don’t serve our foreign gods by human sacrifice or animal sacrifice simply because the word of God doesn’t allow for it and, as Christians, as a Christian worldview, as a Christian legislator, or as a Christian governor, I could not allow it in any given city or state because the Christian worldview only allows for a single sacrifice, and that’s already been accomplished.”

Swanson said that Burning Man is all about “radical inclusion,” which he insisted is just another name for “radical polytheism [and] radical human sacrifice. This is what they’re headed for. They want to bring human sacrifice back.”

Alex Jones #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones told viewers that globalist forces are using “unwashed masses” of liberals to enact a mass genocide of his followers in order to advance a nefarious globalist agenda.

In a YouTube video posted yesterday, Jones told viewers that because he and his followers are resistant to a globalist agenda to systematically kill off the world population, a conspiracy is underway to use “giant unwashed masses” to execute them.

“Because we won’t euthanize them and because we won’t kill them, the eugenicists are using them and preparing them as lemming armies to run over us,” Jones said. “And they want to genocide us in an act of coming of age.”

Jones claimed that his audience’s “Christian ethos to not annihilate” the public is “being used by the very eugenicists” executing the conspiracy. He went on to claim that his off-the-record “globalist” sources had asked him to join in on their “orderly extermination of these people,” but he refused.

Jones claimed the “vicious, sociopathic, psychopathic, technocracy globalists and psych warfare experts” are using Democrats to execute their plan. These Democrats, he said, are vulnerable because they are “completely lost. They are completely freaked out and they are just threatened by culture in general and they want to bully full control of it.”

Matt Bevin #fundie rightwingwatch.org

In a radio interview on Tuesday, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin linked the recent violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, to the removal of Bible study from public schools, saying that the removal of “things that are biblically taught from society” is correlated with “the kind of mayhem” we saw in Charlottesville.

Bevin spoke on Tuesday with West Virginia radio host Tom Roten about the Charlottesville violence and efforts to remove Confederate monuments from public lands, which Bevin said was a “sanitization of history” that he “absolutely” disagrees with.

Bevin said that removing these monuments sets “a dangerous precedent” that we’re “not allowed to talk about certain elements of our history” and amounts to “revisionist history.”

He then appeared to allude to efforts to remove statues of Roger Taney, the Supreme Court justice who wrote the Dred Scott decision, as part of a slippery slope set by removing Confederate memorials. (Although Bevin did not name names, a statue of Taney was recently removed in Annapolis, Maryland.)

“At what point—If somebody happened to have been a judge and something was erected in their honor but they happened to have one ruling one time that somebody’s offended by, is that worthy of them being removed from pretending they ever existed?” he asked.

Later in the interview, Roten asked Bevin about a “Bible literacy” bill he signed in June that encourages public schools to offer nominally secular Bible courses.

Bevin linked the removal of religious education in public schools to the efforts to take down Confederate monuments, saying that taking the Bible out of schools is also a “dangerous” attempt to “scrub history” because “when you go back a couple of hundred years, in most instances the only textbooks that were in our public schools were the Bible .”

“And it’s interesting,” he added, referring to the discussion of Charlottesville, “the more we’ve removed any sense of spiritual obligation or moral higher authority or absolute right and wrong, the more we’ve removed things that are biblically taught from society, the more we’ve seen the kind of mayhem that we were just discussing.”

Dinesh D'Souza #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza compared left-wing protestors who destroyed a Confederate statue in North Carolina to the terrorist organization ISIS and violent fascist regimes.

D’Souza appeared on the August 15 episode of Fox News Radio’s “Todd Starnes Show” to continue blaming the left for violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a white supremacist alt-right demonstrator killed one person and injured more than a dozen others after speeding his vehicle into a group of counter-protestors.

Before ending the interview, Starnes turned the discussion to “anti-fascist” protesters in North Carolina who forcefully toppled a bronze statue that memorialized Confederate soldiers. Starnes asked D’Souza if Americans should “be concerned about this whitewashing of history,” to which D’Souza responded by comparing the protestors to ISIS and other fascist groups.

“Just think about it. When is the last time somebody did this?,” D’Souza said. “The last time somebody did this is when ISIS was sandblasting and blowing up statues.”

D’Souza continued, “This whole idea that you want to erase history that you don’t like—this is a kind of behavior that is characteristic of a despotic mindset. The fascists did the same thing.”

Liberals, D’Souza claimed, are comparable to “black shirts” in Benito Mussolini’s fascist Italian regime and “brown shirts” in Nazi Germany. “The fascist mindset is revealing itself fully on the left,” D’Souza said.

D’Souza’s comparison is yet another installment of the pro-Trump right’s attempts to blame the violence in Charlottesville on the left. The conservative author has also capitalized on the violence in Charlottesville to promote his new book, which promises to expose “the Nazi roots of the American Left.”

Dave Daubenmire #racist rightwingwatch.org

Religious Right activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire spent a good portion of his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning discussing the violence that occurred surrounding a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend, which he claimed was staged in order to provoke a civil war.

Daubenmire repeatedly described the participants in the “Unite The Right” rally as “patriots” who are simply trying to defend Western civilization and asserted that opposition to their march came from “Christ-haters.”

“Please tell me you’re smart enough to understand this, that those were staged riots,” Daubenmire said. “Can I tell you why? Because somebody wants to stir up a mess … They are trying to drive us to civil war.”

Daubenmire insisted that the rally in Charlottesville was hijacked by right-wing and left-wing activists who had been paid to disrupt the event and “make this look like racism is out of control in America.”

“The average patriot couldn’t care less about skin color,” Daubenmire asserted, saying that those who participated in the rally were merely outraged that their heritage is being destroyed as Confederate monuments are taken down all over the country.

“What if we were to go into every town in America and tear down the signs that say Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway?” he wondered. “What would happen if we demanded that Martin Luther King Jr. signs be pulled down and those streets’ names be changed? What would we expect? Well, we’d expect the brainwashed black masses to rise up.”

“When a white guy stands up, it’s racism,” Daubenmire said. “Do you see what they’re doing to us? Does anybody see it? Haven’t I warned you that this is a battle for Western civilization? And at the heart, at the root of Western civilization stands Jesus Christ. These are Christ-haters, these are God-haters.”

Daubenmire fumed that the churches in Charlottesville are not “raising hell” over the fact that the “patriots” who marched in their town were not adequately protected by the police and had their First Amendment rights violated, insisting that the marchers were Christians who love Jesus just as much as anyone else.

Kevin Swanson and Bill Jack #fundie rightwingwatch.org

On his radio program today, extremist anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson and his co-host Bill Jack declared that “sexualized public schools that violate God’s law with high levels of flagrancy” should be burned to the ground.

Swanson and Jack were outraged by the fact that Washington state public schools teach students about gender identity issues, with Swanson at one point connecting this issue to a rape allegation against an employee at the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“Rape is also against God’s law and I guess it must be against state law; I’m not getting why, though,” Swanson said. “Why in the world is a sexual crime against the law in the state of Washington if the other forms of crimes are not against the law in the state of Washington? See, this is confusing to me.”

After Swanson fumed that “the worst possible abominations are accepted in the state of Washington” and that the public schools are “whorehouses,” Jack declared that “we need to burn ’em down.”

Swanson and Jack agreed that if parents from the 1950s saw what was happening in the schools today, “they would want to burn them down.”

“They would burn them down,” Jack said. “They would tear the bricks out of the walls, they would use the bricks to stone the apostates.”

Lance Wallnau #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau posted a video on his Facebook page last night in which he blamed liberals for the death of former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

Railing against reports that Fox News host Eric Bolling has been suspended amid allegations that he had sent lewd photos to several female colleagues, Wallnau declared, “I can only take some much before I have a meltdown right there on the air.”

“I am so flipping mad!” Wallnau bellowed. “First, they took down Roger Ailes, the liberals killed him. The devil killed Roger Ailes because they disgraced him with sexual harassment allegations.”

Wallnau said that while “there is not one sexual practice [that secularists are] not advocating for and trying to make a civil right out of,” they hypocritically targeted “poor little Roger Ailes” for destruction simply because he allegedly sexually harassed multiple women at his network.

Wallnau blamed liberals for Ailes’ death, which occurred after he injured his head in a fall shortly after he was ousted from Fox.

“I’m convinced he fell down partially because of stress and the spiritual warfare,” Wallnau said. “Bang, bashes his head, hemorrhages and bleeds, 77 years old, dies of an accident in his own house. But, I’ll tell you, it was liberals who killed him, not the floor; it’s spirits and curses and demons.”

Jesse Lee Peterson #sexist rightwingwatch.org

On Saturday’s edition of “The Hagmann Report,” Jesse Lee Peterson blamed today’s “devastation in the black communities” on weak men who “allowed their women” to work outside of the home.

While Peterson said he didn’t know if the End Times were here, he warned that “devastation will come up on the earth if men don’t turn back to God so that God can work through them to defeat evil. I think that as generations come, things will get worse for each generation. It will become hell on Earth.”

“I look at what has happened to black people,” Peterson said. “When I was growing up, because men were strong and they loved what was right, you didn’t have this type of devastation in the black communities around the country because men protected their families and their communities from evil.

“You mentioned how the women’s movement encouraged women to go out and work, but if men were strong, they would not have allowed their women to go out and work and the women would not have wanted to go; but the men were not strong enough to protect them from the evil that was coming from the women’s movement, and so it’s our job to do that as Christ has made a way for us.”

Paul Weber #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Jayson was about eight years old when it started. It’s a real-life nightmare that wounds deeply and causes every mom and dad to shudder.

Over seven years, Jayson was sexually abused by several people. One of them was a scout leader — someone he should have been able to trust.

For Jayson, these events were not only traumatic, but they began a long struggle with unwanted same-sex attractions. Sadly, he’s hardly alone in this experience. Childhood sexual abuse is common for those who struggle with homosexual feelings, temptations, orientation and identity.

The good news is that Jayson found help that reversed the course of his life. It came in the form of professional counseling that — over a period of years — transformed his life and realigned his sexual identity with his faith. In fact, it was such a positive influence for Jayson that he’s now providing pastoral coaching to those who are dealing with similar struggles and their parents. God does work all things together for good (Rom. 8:28)!

But incredibly, there’s a movement under way in our nation to ban young people from receiving the same professional counseling that turned Jayson’s life around. State by state, “gay-rights” activists are pushing bills which mandate that counseling on sexual orientation be a one-way street — toward homosexuality.

…

If this dangerous scheme isn’t already the law in your state, an effort to pass it is coming soon. That’s why your Family Policy Alliance is gearing up in states across the nation to prevent this assault and to push back on states where it currently exists.

While the brazenness of this push is surprising, the energy behind it is not. After all, the homosexual movement has long had as its goals: tolerance, then forced acceptance and, ultimately, punishment to those who won’t embrace their agenda. These bans on therapy for minors are an attempt to force acceptance of homosexuality right into our own homes.

Dave Daubenmire #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Religious Right activist “Coach” Daubenmire declared on his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning that Christians who pay their taxes are engaging in sin.

Daubenmire said that Christians “better ask the Lord, ‘Do you want us to give our money to kill babies? Is that what you want us to do, Lord? Advance homosexuality and perversion in our schools? Lord, do you want me to take some of that hard-earned money that you blessed me with and you want me to give it to continue that process?”

“I’ll say this without question,” he continued, “the paying of government taxes, I believe, is sin. I’m sorry, I believe it’s sin. And so my struggle is with that premeditated sin every day because I know, for me to give one penny to Planned Parenthood is a sin. If I know what they’re doing with it, it’s a sin. For me to have to pay my property taxes—get your local property tax bill and look at how much of your local property tax goes to fund your schools and ask yourself, “Why am I funding that filth?'”

Daubenmire said that every Christian will one day have to stand before God and answer this question; and on that day, they will have to beg for His grace because there is no justification for paying taxes to a wicked government such as ours.

Gary Dull #fundie rightwingwatch.org

On Monday’s “Stand In The Gap” radio program, Gary Dull of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network speculated that President Trump could be under threat from LGBTQ people, claiming that this would not be surprising because the “philosophy of the ‘LBGT’ group comes right out of the pit of hell.”

Dull’s comments were in response to the allegations made by pastor Rodney Howard-Browne, who led a recent Oval Office prayer session, that there is a secret plan to attack President Trump and remove him from office. Howard-Browne has not specified who poses such a threat to Trump’s life, which left Dull and cohost Dave Kistler to speculate that Trump’s recent move to bar transgender people from the military may have “angered a lot of people” who could potentially want to retaliate.

Dull cited threats he has personally received, which he said came from “the LGBT group,” and which he said proves that “there is a hatred” within the LGBTQ community. Dull went on to explain that threats from LGBTQ people aren’t surprising “because the philosophy of the ‘LBGT’ group comes right out of the pit of hell” and because “Satan’s mission statement is in the first part of John 10 where it says, ‘The thief cometh but not for to kill and steal and destroy,’ and you see that in the LGBT group and other groups out there that are anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Christian.”

Kistler went on to praise Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military as “absolutely amazing from a spiritual standpoint” and a “move that is in accord with what the scripture teaches with respect to human sexuality.” Trump’s actions, according to Kistler, are responsible for “creating a strong nationalist mindset with respect to the United States of America.”

Michele Bachmann #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Former Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann was a guest on Jan Markell’s “Understanding The Times” radio program again last weekend, where she claimed that a hotline set up by the city of Minneapolis for reporting hate crimes was fascist and a violation of the separation of church and state.

Last month, Minneapolis announced that a hotline had been established to allow residents to report hate crimes, which include “any crime against a person or property motivated by prejudice against someone’s race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender or gender identity. This includes prejudice-motivated property damage (including graffiti), stalking and assault.”

Bachmann claimed that this hotline is really an attempt to outlaw criticism of Islam and institute Sharia law, insisting that its creation is a violation of the separation of church and state.

“What we’re seeing is that hotlines are being set up by units of government for the purpose of encouraging people to call in and rat on their fellow man to report a hate crime,” she warned. “What they’re trying to do is implement anti-blasphemy laws. They’re trying to implement Islamic Sharia law locally in order to quiet churches and quiet anybody who would talk about what the truth is about Islam.”

“What they want is civilization jihad,” Bachmann continued. “They want jihad through the court system to silence speech because when you take away someone’s speech rights to speak out—like we’re doing right now, to tell the truth about something—then it’s game over … There should be a lawsuit filed against the city of Minneapolis for doing this. They have violated the so-called separation of church and state that the left is so in love with because they’re preferring Islam over any other religion and, number two, they’re fascists. That’s what they are, they’re fascists; they want to shut down your right to free speech.”

Linda Harvey #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Mission America’s Linda Harvey joined Cleveland conservative activist Molly Smith on her “From the Median” radio program in June to discuss the dangers of same-sex summer camps and sleepovers, which Harvey and Smith claimed attract homosexual predators and morally corrupted children.

“I would caution anybody to allow their children anymore to go to these camps, I really would, because so many times we’ve seen that this is where there are predators there to prey on our children,” Smith said.

Harvey warned that “any time there is any kind of same-sex environment—I do not mean same-sex homosexuality, I mean boys together doing things together, girls together—it attracts the people that would take advantage of them, and then it will be someone of the same sex, so access is what these people want.”

Harvey continued, “They want access to youth and access even to corruption. It might not be sexual, but it might just be moral corruption of some kind, their older peers who also are corrupted already. You know, so many kids are into pornography and homosexual pornography is part of that. You know, kids are sexualized early only online, you don’t even have to have somebody involved in it. So those may be the people that your kids are in a sleepover with or at camp with, you know, is these kids who are already highly sexualized and nobody may know it, but it’ll come out in the middle of the night.”

Rick Wiles #racist rightwingwatch.org

Yesterday, Joe Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt of court for defying court orders instructing his department to stop engaging in racial profiling back when he served as sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. In 2011, courts had ordered Arpaio’s department to cease its practice of detaining Latinos simply on the suspicion that they were in the country illegally, but Arpaio refused and now he faces the possibility of serving six months in prison.

That development is not sitting well with End Times radio broadcaster Rick Wiles, who used his program yesterday to call on President Trump to not only pardon Arpaio, but to also to place him in charge of the Department of Homeland Security.

“I have an idea,” Wiles said. “In addition to giving him a presidential pardon … President Trump, if you want to stand for justice and do something to strike against the deep state, please nominate Sheriff Arpaio to be the next secretary of Homeland Security.”

“The position will put him in charge of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, along with the U.S. Border Patrol Agency,” Wiles added. “Your friends will shout with excitement and gratitude and your enemies will howl in misery, like wounded wolves.”

Right-wing commentator, conspiracy theorist and Donald Trump–obsessed sycophant Wayne Allyn Root kicked off his radio broadcast on Wednesday by heaping praise on President Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from serving in the military.

“Brilliant Donald Trump cements his support among every conservative, every Christian, every evangelical Christian and every straight white male in America,” Root crowed. “We are back! America is back! Thank God for Donald Trump. Thank God for common sense.”

“We’ve had it with this transgender issue,” he continued. “Do whatever you want in your bedroom, but you can’t go in the military, you cannot serve alongside the men and women who are fighting to save America [who] don’t want to be on the battlefront or in the fox holes with a he/she.”

“You don’t get to fight in the military,” Root proclaimed. “Where does the U.S. Constitution say you have a right to not know if you have a penis or a vagina and sit in a fox hole and shoot people? ‘Cause you don’t have what it takes to sit in a fox hole and shoot people and the other men who do, don’t want to sit in a fox hole with you; they’re scared of you. They’re not scared of murdering communists, they’re not scared of crazy, murdering, set-you-on-fire Muslims, they’re scared of you who don’t know if you have a penis or a vagina! That’s who scares most straight men! Sorry to tell you. They don’t want to be near you. It’s like a freaking Nightmare on Elm Street if they see a bunch of transgenders walking towards them who don’t know if they are a man or a woman.”

Operation Save America #fundie rightwingwatch.org

The extremist anti-choice group Operation Save America is making national headlines this week as it begins a week of protests aimed at shutting down the last remaining abortion clinic in Kentucky. The group has been testing the enforcement of the FACE Act, the federal law guaranteeing access to abortion clinics; 11 Operation Save America (OSA) members were arrested for blocking the doors of the Louisville clinic in May and the group has now agreed to abide by a temporary restraining order allowing access to the clinic during their protests—a decision that OSA is portraying as a victory.

OSA picked its target carefully: Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has also been taking aim at the Louisville clinic and personally met with OSA leadership when they held a planning meeting in February. In December, OSA’s Rusty Thomas wrote to his group’s supporters that he was also planning to “meet with a Congressman who is a dear Christian brother who is serious about restoring his state in righteousness. He has graciously offered his help to OSA in establishing our comings and goings in his state.”

OSA’s goal, however, involves more than shutting down the last abortion clinic in Kentucky. The group has been urging state officials to defy federal law on abortion rights altogether and refuse to enforce the protections of Roe v. Wade in their state. The primary advocate of this strategy is Matt Trewhella, a Wisconsin activist who signed a statement in the 1990s supporting the murder of abortion providers. Trewhella is a fixture at OSA events and spoke at a press conference with Thomas this week. Thomas has said that Bevin praised Trewhella’s book about defying federal laws on abortion rights and LGBTQ equality when he met the group in February.

Speaking to Slate’s Michelle Goldberg about Trewhella’s “Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates,” Thomas said, “It just appears that Kentucky may be the first ones who take it seriously enough to cross that line and finally do their duty in the midst of this Holocaust.”

In a press conference this week, Thomas insisted that it was the Supreme Court that had broken the law by ruling in favor of abortion rights: “We are not the lawbreakers. The Supreme Court are the lawbreakers. We are the law-keepers.”

At OSA’s national event in Wichita last year, the group held a mock trial in front of a federal courthouse in which it declared Supreme Court decisions on abortion rights, LGBT equality and the separation of church and state to be “null and void” because they are “not lawful in the eyes of God.”

OSA, which grew out of the protest group Operation Rescue and has a long-running feud with the group that currently calls itself Operation Rescue, is not shy about saying what it hopes will happen if abortion is recriminalized in the U.S. Thomas wrote on Facebook earlier this year that a woman who has an abortion has committed murder and must “face justice just like any other person who commits crimes of this magnitude.” Jason Storms, an OSA member who conducted youth seminars at last year’s Wichita event, told CBS this week that “A mother who has knowingly, willingly, chosen to kill her own child out of pure selfish motives, she’s guilty as a murderer in the eyes of the law.”

Extremist anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ activist Dave Daubenmire has been streaming his daily webcast from the Louisville event. He was a featured speaker at OSA’s event in Wichita, where he declared that “the only thing standing between tyranny and liberty is a Christian, heterosexual man.”

Despite OSA’s extremism, their mission of closing the last clinic in Kentucky seems to appeal to less bombastic anti-choice groups: the large anti-choice legal group Americans United for Life tweeted about the protests this morning.

Kevin Swanson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Kevin Swanson, a homeschooling activist and radio host who last year hosted three GOP presidential candidates at a forum in Iowa, devoted his radio program on July 12 to complaining that Christians are merely trying to change public schools rather than abolishing them altogether.

Swanson invited Kevin Novak, the author of “Abolition: Overcoming the Christian Establishment on Education,” to discuss the issue, and the two concluded that it would be best if the public school system were to collapse and be replaced by a system run by conservative Christians that would give everybody “more freedom.”

“Academically, the educational system’s turned into a really, really, really big joke,” Swanson said. “It seems to me it’s gonna fall on its own weight, so I’m not sure we are going to have to bring about the fall of Jerusalem or the fall of the public schools here. It seems to me that this thing’s gonna fall on its own weight.”

Novak responded, “Well, I think, let it happen, you know? If Christians really believe the Scriptures, then we’re gonna be the ones to reconstruct society. We’re gonna be the ones with the answers, and that’s already happening.”

Novak claimed that when he ran a homeschooling group, non-Christians would ask his group for help and for “answers” regarding education.

“We Christians have the answers, and for those Christians out there’s a lot of them are in the homeschool community—I know that there are issues with homeschooling and private Christian schools, but I like to think that we’re part of the solution and not the problem, we’re at least trying,” Novak said.

Novak continued, “But we’re the ones with the answers, and we’re the ones that are going to save liberals from themselves because liberals actually have more freedom when Christians are in charge than when their own people are in charge, and let’s let the civil government school system collapse.”

Novak warned that upon the public school system’s collapse, Christians must be prepared to call for “less law and less taxation, less regulation, and complete autonomy to be able to educate in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”

E.W. Jackson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

On his radio show yesterday, right-wing pastor and Virginia Republican politician E.W. Jackson claimed that people who prefer to be referred to with the gender neutral pronouns “they/them” do so because they are under the “possession” of “multiple demons.”

“This whole thing of going to a plural pronoun,” Jackson said, “to me, it is a subconscious spiritual admission of demon possession by multiple demons.”

“The only single individual I’m familiar with who spoke from the plural pronoun was Legion,” Jacking said, referring to an incident in the New Testament in which Jesus cast demons out of a possessed man.

“Who is the ‘they’ in there?” Jackson asked rhetorically. “We know who the ‘they’ in there is: a bunch of devils.”

Jackson condemned the “transgender toolkits” that have been provided to many teachers in the hope that classrooms can better accommodate students who do not identify with the gender binary, saying that these schools “don’t need a transgender tool kit” but instead need “a whole army of exorcists to cast all those demons out of people who are pushing this mess.”

Rodney Howard-Browne #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Earlier this month, President Trump met with a variety of right-wing pastors in the Oval Office, where he was prayed over by a Holy Laughter pioneer posted Rodney Howard-Browne and others.

Following the meeting, Howard-Browne said that he had been moved to pray over the president to prevent a “planned attack” against him that was being organized by “people that hate God [and] hate America.”

While he was initially rather cryptic about what this supposed plan was, Howard-Browne told his congregation last weekend that it was a planned assassination.

Howard-Browne said that while he was in Washington, D.C., he got to spend three hours with “one of the senior ranking members of Congress” who told him “that there is a plot on Capitol Hill to take the president out.” When Howard-Browne asked if that meant to remove Trump from office via impeachment, the congressmen said, “No, to take him out, he will be removed suddenly from office.”

“Well, you can read between the lines,” Howard-Browne said, before adding that he then told the congressman that “we are going to stop it because we are going to mobilize the body of Christ to pray” to protect this president “who has opened the door [of the White House] to the body of Christ.”

“We are going to pray and God is going to intervene and the Lord is going to protect him and we are going to see what heaven wants done,” he said.

During a recent appearance on SkyWatch TV, “firefighter prophet” and right-wing conspiracy theorist Mark Taylor declared that churches that operate under a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status have entered into a covenant with Baal and have a “demonic portal” hovering over them.

Despite the fact that Taylor doesn’t seem to understand what 501(c)(3) status actually is, he is convinced that churches that operate under it do so because they have a “slavery mentality” and have taken a “bribe” from the government.

“It’s almost like they’re having a demonic portal over the top of them,” he said, “so it’s influencing each person and each ministry in a different way, depending on their spiritual maturity. This is why we’re seeing such moral issues, the financial corruption going on in the churches, this is why we’re seeing people leave because they’re tired of this stuff. But it’s that slavery mentality where they want to be governed, basically. They don’t want to be the one to rule and reign, like God called us to.”

“Ninety-five percent of our churches,” Taylor continued, “are under that 501(c)(3). They’re in covenant with Baal. That is a covenant with the kingdom of darkness, basically. They took a bribe from 1954 and entered into a covenant.”

Rep. Brian Babin, Republican of Texas, joined the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program on Friday to discuss unsuccessful Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Babin was particularly upset with the ACA’s requirement that insurance plans cover maternity care and addiction treatment, complaining that the law requires families who are “law-abiding” and “make wise decisions” to have coverage that they “probably would not have to have.”

Babin claimed that most Americans were against the Affordable Care Act at the time it was passed and that they want to “get rid of this thing” now that “we’ve had a taste of socialized medicine.”

“So, failure’s not an option,” he said. “I think my colleagues in the Senate need to get together, and let’s get something that we can offer the American people to give them freedom and choice. And why should a 25- or 30-year-old man have to have maternity insurance? Why should every policy have a drug rehab clause in it, coverage in it? These are just the government-knows-best insurance regs that make the prices go up. So we’ve got to give them some choices here.”

Later in the interview, Babin said that the ACA requires insurance plans to cover things that people don’t need if they’re “law abiding and they make wise decisions.”

“You know,” he said, “if you’ve got a government that’s going to force you to buy a private product like health insurance and then make you—and this product, they tell you exactly what coverage you’ve got to have, it covers all these things that most families, if they’re law-abiding and they make wise decisions, that you probably would not have to have, then I think the price is going to come down.”

Babin added that if the ACA’s individual mandate is repealed, “a lot of folks” will probably go without insurance. “But whose choice is this?” he asked. “This is America, this is not the Soviet Union.”
