Rick Wiles: Obama Hopes To Blow Up Schools

Trunews host Rick Wiles knows why President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama — or as Wiles refers to them, “Barry Benghazi Obama” and “Michael Obama” — worked with the nonprofit group KaBoom! on this year's 9/11 anniversary: they were signaling to terrorists to hit American schools.

Wiles said that the Obamas’ participation in the KaBoom! playground-building event to mark the National Day of Service and Remembrance is proof that they are “signaling that the next 9/11-style terrorist attack will be American schools going kaboom. Barack Obama is a stealth jihadist.”

Sandy Rios Cites Hoax Story To Warn Of Scourge Of Mother-Daughter Couples

On her radio program today, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios promoted the upcoming Ex-Gay Awareness Month — at which she will be receiving the prestigious “Friend of Ex-Gays Freedom Award” — by repeating a hoax story about a mother-daughter lesbian couple.

Rios read her guest, ex-gay activist Christopher Doyle, an article from the website Stuppid.com that supposedly tells the story of a mother-daughter couple named Vertasha and Mary Carter.

But as the myth-busting website Snopes.com reports, the story is a complete hoax.

“The fight against this movement, it’s like a powerful force of immorality that threatens to overtake us,” Rios said of the fictitious story, before comparing ex-gay activists like Doyle to “Muslims who don’t declare their devotion to jihad.”

Doyle added: “There’s people out there that are trying to normalize this craziness. Where does it end?”

New Ex-Gay Movie Ad: 'Lady Gaga, Shut Up'

An advertisement for ex-gay activist David Kyle Foster’s movie, “Such Were Some Of You,” ran during today’s edition of “The 700 Club.”

The clip featured activists Michael Brown and Anne Paulk, and one young man who exclaimed: “I have to say, Lady Gaga, shut up. I was not born this way.”

Foster has warned of gay brainwashing in schools and divine punishment for gay rights, insisting that he changed his sexual orientation after “sleeping with 1,000 men.”

BarbWire: Ray Rice Punched His Girlfriend Out Of Fear, Feminism

The far-right outlet BarbWire published a column by Robert Stacy McCain today, in which he makes the case that Ray Rice punched his girlfriend in an Atlantic City casino elevator because feminists have turned men and women into equals, and therefore he was treating her just as he would treat anyone who was provoking him in an elevator.

McCain writes that women are temperamental and prone to rage, and thanks to feminism, now provoke their male partners into violence.

Everybody has focused on the obvious horror of Rice’s punch — the brute force of a 200-pound professional athlete used against a woman — and nobody seems interested in what Janay did immediately before the punch. The couple were in a confined space, inside an elevator, when Janay “got in his face,” screaming and lunging toward Rice. Of course, Janay’s behavior does not justify Rice hitting her, but one wonders why she acted that way, just as one wonders whether the circumstance of being trapped in an elevator with this enraged woman in some way explains Rice’s reaction. That is to say, if her angry rage triggered Rice’s fight-or-flight instinct, he couldn’t flee from her while they were on the elevator, and his adrenalin surge produced an autonomic reflex: BOOM.



From the feminist perspective, this isn’t about one man hitting one woman. This is about a “culture.” This is about “the power structure” of “patriarchy.” Individual responsibility disappears and the conversation is about “a larger systemic injustice.”

The world is full of “systemic injustice,” if you want to look at it that way, and almost everyone can somehow claim victimhood.



Do we have any evidence that Ray Rice is a chronic menace to women? Is there an established record of Ray Rice as a habitual perpetrator of domestic violence? Was this horrific incident caught on video part of a long-term pattern? Who benefits, and who is harmed, by dropping him from the Ravens lineup and indefinitely suspending him from the NFL? Insofar as Ray Rice is suffering the legitimate consequences of his own wrongful behavior, I have no complaint. But it seems to me that Ray Rice — and Janay Rice, and everyone with a direct stake in Ray Rice’s NFL career — is being made to suffer an extraordinary penalty because (a) feminists have turned this into a political cause célèbre, and (b) the NFL is run by cowardly swine who care more about their image than they care about human beings.



This stringent zero-tolerance policy — “Boys don’t hit girls” – sets up a problem: What happens if a woman loses her temper, behaves in an insulting manner, and even acts violently against a man? Some women are simply crazy, and some women have been spoiled rotten by over-indulgent parents who put up with tantrums. The “Daddy’s Precious Darling” Syndrome, as I call it, involves an entitlement mentality that makes it impossible for some women to admit wrongdoing or to accept criticism. If she can’t get what she wants, or if her bad behavior exposes her to criticism, Daddy’s Precious Darling can’t deal with it. She flies into a rage, and whoever she blames for thwarting her will — failing to kowtow to imperious demands or daring to criticize her selfish attitude — will become the target of unrestrained hatred. “Hell hath no fury,” et cetera.



What if, instead of going to the casino with a date, Ray Rice had gone to the casino with a male buddy who got drunk and caused a scene? What if, after Ray and his buddy got on the elevator, the buddy had started yelling angrily at him, “getting in his face?”

BOOM.

There’s your equality. How do you like it?

Of course, feminists don’t believe in this kind of equality, an equality which would make women and men equally vulnerable to the consequences of “getting in the face” of a 200-pound pro athlete. However, as a skinny man who doesn’t enjoy pain, I can absolutely guarantee you that I would never make the mistake of engaging in a face-to-face shouting match with a guy like Ray Rice.

Here’s some helpful advice: Just walk away.

This advice applies to anyone who is tempted to provoke a confrontation, and it also applies equally to anyone who finds themselves confronted with a helpless fool looking for trouble. It especially applies to any man whose girlfriend or wife loses her temper, goes into a rage and begins insulting or threatening him.

Just walk away.



None of this makes sense in the context of radical equality, where the selfish quest for power turns man and woman into rivals.

BOOM.

There’s your equality. How do you like it?

Perkins: Separation Of Church And State Helps ISIS

The Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins said today that the separation of church and state in the United States has contributed to the rise of Islamic extremist groups like ISIS, arguing in his radio commentary that ISIS has “filled the void left by secularism.”

According to Perkins, American ISIS militants wouldn’t have left the country to fight for the group if only the government had promoted Christianity over other faiths.

Where there is no vision, the people perish. Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Americans have been shocked to see the brutality and barbarism of the Islamic militants of ISIS, and they've been stunned by the revelations that radicalized Americans have joined their ranks and taken up their cause. Pundits and politicians alike have publicly pondered the question as to how young Americans can be sucked into such an evil venture. While it may be troubling, the answer is not hard. Radical secularism that has driven the defining characteristics of our Western culture, our Judeo-Christian heritage, from our schools, our entertainment and even our government has left in its place a void, a vacuum. And we should know from experience that a vacuum will be filled by something. Without a creedal vision that a society can unify around, the people, the nation, will perish. Unless we are content to allow ISIS or some other radical belief system to fill the void left by secularism, we must rediscover America's founding, Christ-centered vision.

Gina Miller: 'Slutty' Women Encourage Sexual Assault

BarbWire content editor and columnist Gina Miller was the guest this weekend on “Mission America,” where she and host Linda Harvey took a break from attacking the LGBT community to discuss campus sexual assaults, for which they blame feminism for launching a “war on white males.”

Miller said feminists, and all liberals, “have this hatred for males, especially white males.”

“There is this palpable hatred for men,” she said. “Actual rape is a terrible thing and no one is saying that these men are not accountable but I at the same time hold women responsible for when they put themselves, present themselves in slutty attire at a drunken frat party and then expect these frat boys to behave like gentlemen. It’s nonsense.”

Harvey, for her part, claimed the “war on women” is a myth, when in reality there is “a war on unborn babies, a war on common sense [and] a war on Christianity.” Miller agreed: “The war on women is a completely fabricated, made-up thing. There is actually a war out there, it’s a war against all humanity led by the Devil himself and people that he inspires. A war on unborn babies, it’s a genocidal, homicidal war. There is a real war on white males in this nation.”

Linda Harvey: Anti-Gay Activists Must Go To 'Places That Are Homosexual' To Tell Them They're Not Gay

Linda Harvey of Mission America spoke to BarbWire columnist Gina Miller on her radio show this weekend, where the two reprised their attacks on LGBT rights as a demonic, destructive force.

Reflecting on a campaign to push for LGBT rights in Southern states, Harvey said anti-gay activists should have the same “kind of boldness” and go to pride parades and “places that are homosexual” like San Francisco, Provincetown and Key West.

Miller, however, cautioned that “a lot of the homosexual radicals are radical and they’re violent and vicious,” adding: “These people are vicious and we’re not. That’s the thing. We’re not vicious but we know the truth and the truth is on our side.”

Harvey and Miller then dismissed a Human Rights Campaign survey on harassment of LGBT youth in states like Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama, which they claimed — without any evidence to substantiate their claims — was a complete sham.

Miller said: “No I don’t believe it, while there may be some element of bullying — of course bullying happens all the time for various reasons in our schools, that’s the way kids are — but no, I don’t buy it and further they can easily make up these statistics…They’re using these kinds of statements whether they’re true or not to create a false image, a false impression that homosexuals are bullied and where is this rampant epidemic of homosexual kids?”

“These folks are highly sensitive — I’m not saying these things don’t happen, but I think all of this is exaggeration,” Harvey said. “‘One-in-three LGBT students,’ you might be talking about 45 people in the total of Mississippi and they are not born that way so the issue is we need to be educating and counseling and coming along these kids and saying ‘you don’t need to be in this lifestyle’ and harassment can be punished right now, no matter what the reason, so it’s all false.”

Sandy Rios Attacks Slain Aid Worker David Haines' Brother, Accuses Him Of Helping Islamists

The American Family Association’s Sandy Rios is outraged that the brother of David Haines, a British aid worker who was beheaded by ISIS, said that Muslims were not to blame for the violent actions of the extremist group.

“His lack of understanding is just amazing and his spiritual confusion is just overwhelming,” Rios said on her American Family Radio program today. “He represents, I think, millions of American and British post-Christians who believe it’s ‘live and let live,’ it’s ‘coexist,’ it’s ‘whatever it takes to have peace among all men,’ not understanding that the Muslim faith is absolutely to blame for ISIL.”

“That’s the kind of thinking that is just perfect targets for the Islamists,” she continued. “They’re not moved by this, they’re not moved by the fact that he says his family’s not Muslim, that means their heads will be more on the chopping block, they’re not won by this kind of spiritual blandness and confusion.”

“They don’t understand what just happened to their son and brother, they don’t understand it,” she added. Rios said Haines’ remarks about nonviolence will actually help ISIS spread its evil and only “make it worse.”

Klingenschmitt: Christians Will Be Forced To 'Worship Sodomy'

Colorado GOP politician Gordon Klingenschmitt is upset that a New York court fined a wedding business for denying service to a same-sex couple, warning in an email alert that “literally the court is banning Christian worship.”

Klingenschmitt, a Religious Right activist who is the Republican nominee for a seat in the Colorado State House, told members of his Pray In Jesus Name Project in a Saturday email that the court told the business owners that they “cannot worship Christ during a wedding, unless they also worship and participate equally in sodomy in their own home.”

Christians are fined $13,000 and may no longer celebrate the Christian sacrament of marriage in their own home, unless they also host lesbian weddings. Literally the court is banning Christian worship, saying these Christian farmers cannot worship Christ during a wedding, unless they also worship and participate equally in sodomy in their own home. They are now coming into our homes, and dictating our worship. This unconstitutional policy, to punish Christians (with no religious exemptions) will be law in all 50 states, if ENDA is passed.]

In another Pray In Jesus Name Project email on Sunday, Klingenschmitt said Senate Democrats are “literally trying to outlaw Christianity” by attempting to pass a bill overturning the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling.

Democrats are literally trying to outlaw Christianity. Think about that. They now hate religious freedom so much, they're voting to reverse the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which back then was passed 97 to 3 by nearly all Democrats in the U.S. Senate. Today only 42 Republicans defend Christianity. Wow.

He previously accused a gay Democratic congressman of wanting to “behead Christians” and said “demonic” gay rights advocates are forcing Christians to “participate in their sodomy.”

Renew America: Ray Rice Is The Real Victim

Renew America columnist Sylvia Thompson writes today that Ray Rice is the victim of a “sick, twisted, and evil” culture that hates men and that “Rice finds himself in the hands of a veritable lynch mob of leftists who seem hell-bent on destroying him.”

Since “Rice is not a homosexual man,” Thompson argues, “he suffers the full wrath of the holier-than-thou leftist mob” of “a pernicious feminism that pollutes the entire culture.”

She adds that “disgusting” feminists are “destroying the nation and many of the decent people in it” such as Rice, whom she views as the real victim of domestic abuse and an effort to usher in the “destruction of black men.”

“Radical feminists need to be taught that lesson,” she continues. “In their quest to destroy men, they have elevated domestic violence well beyond offenses of a much more grievous nature.”

While Thompson supports Ray Rice, she has strongly denounced gay athletes Michael Sam and Jason Collins as minions of Satan.

Everybody knows that if Ray Rice, the football player who is being systematically destroyed by leftists, were a homosexual who had decked another homosexual male (of any color), this fiasco would be played out vastly differently. The leftist media and sports industry would be doing everything that they could to justify the behavior – lobbying for counseling, calling for sympathy, shielding the perpetrator in every possible way. Excuse, excuse, excuse – that would be the mantra. But Ray Rice is not a homosexual man, so he suffers the full wrath of the holier-than-thou leftist mob (and all the misguided people who follow them).

What the mob is doing to Rice is beyond disgusting – it is criminal. It is a mob influenced by a pernicious feminism that pollutes the entire culture; nobody has the guts to cross rabid feminists. Rice's wife and child are being completely ignored in this eternal quest for blood, anybody's blood, as long as somebody is destroyed. Our culture has become so sick, twisted, and evil, that I find it very difficult to participate in it. I doubt that I am alone in my sentiments.



Doctor Ben Carson is the only person that I have heard, of late, who is responding to the tragedy with a sense of decency. He has cautioned against "demonizing" Ray Rice, and that is about the only sane advice I am hearing.

I addressed the issue of women physically attacking men and expecting no retaliation in an earlier article. It seems to have been determined that Janay Palmer (then, Rice's girlfriend) initiated the physical violence. I will reiterate my earlier position. If you are a woman with any sense in your head, you do not aggressively attack men. They are physically larger and if not larger, they are likely stronger. Women ignore this admonition at their own risk. I also heard that alcohol played a part in this incident. And contrary to what some may think, alcohol can indeed induce violent behavior. I am from a long line of serious drinkers, and I can attest to that fact.

If the National Football League (NFL) wants to set rules of conduct for its players, they can do so, as any employer can. The draconian decision passed down regarding Rice, however, is purely the result of attempting to please leftist feminists, and that reaction in itself is disgusting, and hypocritical. It is asinine to deny a man his livelihood except for the most grievous offenses, and domestic violence, as bad as it is, is not the most grievous offense out there. Radical feminists need to be taught that lesson. In their quest to destroy men, they have elevated domestic violence well beyond offenses of a much more grievous nature, in my view.



This takes me back to my initial premise that one of the Left's many goals is the destruction of black men.

This black man, Ray Rice, spent much of his youth preparing to take on the job of an accomplished athlete. Sports, sadly, is one of the few venues that afford often poorly educated black children a chance to move forward in their lives, and not down that deadly spiral of poverty and imprisonment. And yet, Rice finds himself in the hands of a veritable lynch mob of leftists who seem hell-bent on destroying him. I'd bet that he does not quite know what has hit him.

My hope and prayer is that Rice and his wife will be able to find means of supporting their family and get beyond this hatefulness. And, perhaps later, they will join those of us who are in mortal combat against leftist thinking, which is destroying the nation and many of the decent people in it.
