Rick Wiles Points To 'Game Of Thrones' Tweet To Prove Obama Is The Antichrist

Rick Wiles believes that a Game of Thrones-inspired image of President Obama that the White House posted on Twitter as a joke during the White House Correspondents Dinner, is actually a sign of the End Times and Obama’s demonic nature. Wiles, who was once worried that Obama would declare himself God and wondered if a fly landing on the president proved that he is a demon, invited evangelists Augusto Perez and Steve Quayle onto “TruNews” to discuss the tweet on his radio broadcast on Friday.

Perez claimed that the tweet is just a “little side” of “a big dark conspiracy” to bring about “hell on earth,” while Wiles wondered why other evangelists aren’t calling out Obama for clearly being the Antichrist:

If there was a politician who came to power in another nation, a powerful nation, who had Obama’s identification mystery, his same association with the occult, his worship as a deity, his spying and surveillance powers, his war making powers, his persecution of Christians around the world through his policies, if there was another person like that in power in another nation, American Christians would be shouting that that person is the Antichrist, that he has appeared.

Perez linked the tweet to gay rights victories, including the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell:

“All of this weird stuff going on, this image of him seated on a feathered throne, supposedly it’s swords, with a crossbow and what looks like eggs, it’s so weird,” Perez said. “You have to be able to connect the dots. The release of evil that is taking place in recent years, all kinds of things, the legislation that has been passed, corrupting the military on purpose, sodomy, bestiality, homosexuality, things that are meant to demoralize the Armed Forces and demoralize this people, same-sex marriage.”

Wiles then likened Obama to the ancient Assyrian king Sennacherib, saying that “all this man has done has been to bring immorality to the highest level it’s ever been in this country and export it around the world.”

Not to be outdone, Quayle told Wiles that Obama in 2008 accepted the Democratic presidential nomination from “Satan’s throne,” adding: “I want to make it clear, you cannot put ‘Obama’ and ‘nation’ together without coming up with ‘Obamanation.’”

“This guy is a demoniac,” Wiles said.

Larry Klayman Says Americans Must Overthrow Obama To Honor Holocaust Victims

Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman writes this weekend in WorldNetDaily that his campaign to literally overthrow President Obama through a popular uprising and military coup is just like the fight in Star Wars against “the Empire and its Darth Vaders like Obama, Holder [and] Reid” and that overthrowing the president is necessary to honor Holocaust victims.

Klayman, who was recently profiled in the Washington Post Magazine, cites the “never again” slogan to support his anti-Obama efforts: “Let us do so with the memory of over 6 million Jews, Catholics, other Christians, and mentally and physically infirm who were tortured, raped, gassed and burned alive in Adolf Hitler’s concentration camps. Never again! Never again!”

But it comes as no surprise that the Empire comprised of the likes of President Barack Hussein Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has called the Bundys and their supporters “domestic terrorists” and Reid’s lackey, Neil Kornze, who is a former aide to this truly evil senator, now head of BLM, are now illegally using federal power, such as the FBI, to investigate and likely prosecute those citizens who exercised their Second Amendment rights to successfully, for now, defend the Bundys, the nation and themselves from government tyranny. The Russian Putinesque behavior of these corrupt government officials and agencies is exactly what the framers of the Constitution intended the Second Amendment and other amendments, such as the Fourth and First, to be used for. The Second Amendment and its right to bear and use arms, and for We the People to have militias, in the truest sense of the word, were the result of identical behavior, with far less firepower than exists today, by King George III in the years leading up to and during the American Revolution. And, just like Obama, Reid and their goons, King George III struck back mercilessly, using every weapon at his disposal.

As during biblical and American revolutionary times, David is destined to prevail over Goliath, with the help of our Lord and Savior.



In the name of liberty and freedom, now let us, We the People, sound our own battle cry. Let us do so by pledging our allegiance to the nation, ourselves and our loved ones. Let us do so with the memory of over 6 million Jews, Catholics, other Christians, and mentally and physically infirm who were tortured, raped, gassed and burned alive in Adolf Hitler’s concentration camps. Never again! Never again! Never again will government power and evil officials get free reign to use the power of the state to destroy liberty and freedom and annihilate the people.

To Obama, Reid and their henchmen, including the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency, who undoubtedly are digging up dirt as we speak to give to government authorities like the FBI to smear and destroy the Bundys, their supporters and all of us who stand tall against their government tyranny, I say, “Go to Hell.” We will not back down from defending our rights and saving our country, no matter how you attempt to coerce and intimate us into remaining silent. While not demonstrating the eloquence of Thomas Jefferson or Patrick Henry, let us hope the Empire and its Darth Vaders like Obama, Holder, Reid and BLM’s Kornze get the message so we can avoid bloodshed and the sad consequences of what has now sadly become the Second American Revolution.

Kevin Swanson Wonders If Beyoncé Is Possessed By Demons

Religious Right talk show host Kevin Swanson believes that Beyoncé Knowles’ former persona, Sasha Fierce, may be a demon who has brought the pop star into Satanism.

“That’s multiple personality or that’s demon possession or that’s psychosis,” the Generations Radio host said last week. “People used to have to be taken off to insane asylums if they introduced other characters in their lives, these are people who are going to wind up in insane asylums, mental institutes for things like demon possession or psychosis.”

In January, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer similarly claimed that Sasha Fierce is a demonic spirit.

Later in his program, Swanson lamented that homosexuality is no longer considered “one of the most devastating sins” because “it tore everything up, it tore relationships up, it tore families up, it destroyed sexuality.”

“What’s shifted now, it’s this incredible demonic shift, where what used to be the most devastating, the most horrific thing that could ever happen to a family, has become the highest virtue,” he said.

Anti-Gay Activists Were 'Grossed Out' By Michael Sam's 'Cringe-Inducing' Kiss

It didn’t take long for the anti-gay Right to respond in shock to college football player Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after receiving a call notifying him that he was being drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

Before Sam was even drafted, lobbyist David Burkman announced that he and a “coalition of Evangelical Christian leaders from across the nation” would organize a “relentless” boycott of whichever NFL team drafted the openly gay defensive end.

When Sam was shown receiving the good news, a mortified Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality tweeted about the player’s “perversion.”

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer tweeted that people who truly love Sam “would urge him toward therapy,” and in his column today encouraged the NFL to meet “privately with Michael Sam to urge him in the strongest possible terms to pursue reparative therapy in the hopes of saving his life.”

“[T]he only people who truly care for Mr. Sam are those who love him enough to tell him the truth about the health risks of homosexual behavior,” he added.

The editor-in-chief of Herman Cain’s website, Best of Cain, was also upset about the “cringe-inducing” “public homosexual displays of affection.” Dan Calabrese wrote that “the natural inclination of the human being to look at two men kissing and say, ‘Ewwww!’” actually “comes from God,” and acceptance of gay people amounts to “rebellion against God.”

Cue the media, which couldn't tell us enough how wonderful it was that the openly homosexual Sam - upon hearing the news he was drafted - laid a smooch on his boyfriend on live TV. Look, everyone! See two men kissing each other! How wonderful!

And it was only a matter of time until someone who thought it was actually kind of cringe-inducing said so publicly, and that someone turned out to be Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones. He tweeted the following succinct commentary: "omg . . . horrible"

Please note: That is not allowed.

The rules are simple. People who wish to engage in PHDA (public homosexual displays of affection) will do so as openly as they like. The media will show these PHDAs to us repeatedly and at every opportunity. You are to watch. You have a choice between expressing your glee or saying nothing. However, if you are asked what you think, you must say it is wonderful. This is mandatory.



What the culture is trying to do to Don Jones - now with the full buy-in of the NFL - is to force a reprogramming of people's natural reaction to things. It insists on showing us pictures of two men kissing, and when we don't react to that positively, saying to us: You ignoramuses! You don't mind when NFL draftees kiss their girlfriends! This is no different!



And because this comes from God, so too does the natural inclination of the human being to look at two men kissing and say, "Ewwww!" Many people don't want to see it. That's why we chose not to show the kiss in the photo above. I can't rail against the media for shoving that image in our faces and then shove it in your face.

The culture that is in fullscale rebellion against God attacks this natural inclination, but it is still there. I don't think it was particularly wise for Don Jones to tweet what he did, but why do the gay-is-wonderful people have the right to put any image and any message they want in front of us, while no one has the right to give their honest reaction to it?

What the Dolphins did to Don Jones is the latest triumph of fascism. It is the controlling of people's thoughts and their expressions thereof. It matters not at all that the government is not the official perpetrator of this control. The source is a political movement, and it happens to be the very political movement that supports the people in power in this country at the moment.

But more to the point, the culture is demanding that people reject the Word of God on the matter of homosexuality, or pay the price.

4 WINDS Christian Athletics denounced the NFL for “caving into the homosexual agenda”:

The floodgates of immorality have increased dramatically in sports. An NFL team has drafted an open homosexual player, the USA Olympic Committee is promoting homosexuality, and Nike is funding a gay marriage political action committee (PAC) in Oregon.

The St. Louis Rams selected Michael Sam in the seventh round of the NFL draft. After being selected, Sam kissed his gay lover on ESPN in celebration.



"There has always been sinners in sports as sports is a reflection of society. However, the floodgates of immorality have dramatically increased over the last few years," says 4 WINDS President Steve McConkey. "Sports people throughout the world are caving into the homosexual agenda."

Judson Phillips of Tea Party Nation also defended those who “were grossed out by the spectacle of two men kissing on TV,” arguing that the NFL should lose its tax-exempt status if it continues to “push an agenda.”

He was drafted and in what was very clearly a scripted movement for television, he kissed another man.

The reaction was quick.

Many Americans were grossed out by the spectacle of two men kissing on TV. Many were appalled by what was obviously a staged event to push an agenda.



Over the last few years, the NFL has become much more of an arm of the political left. From the Baltimore Ravens pitching Obamacare to the NFL’s implied threats to move the Super Bowl from Arizona if Governor Jan Brewer did not veto Arizona’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the NFL is acting like an arm of Organizing for Obama.

Perhaps it is time for real Americans to say enough. If the NFL wants to be political, then it can be. We don’t have to watch the NFL and we should ask our Senators and Congressmen why the NFL remains a tax-exempt organization?

Star Parker: Tea Party Is 'The Last Chapter' Of Fights 'Against Slavery And Racism'

Conservative pundit Star Parker is citing a Pew poll on views of the Tea Party to claim that African Americans are increasingly embracing the right-wing movement and that the Tea Party “message is reaching and beginning to touch black Americans.”

The Pew survey, which was published in October, showed that negative impressions of the Tea Party had actually increased rapidly. Pew found that 49 percent of the public had an unfavorable view of the Tea Party (up from 45 percent in the last poll in June), and the Tea Party’s favorability rating plummeted seven points to 30 percent. 

Positive views of the Tea Party also dropped among black respondents, with its favorability plunging from just 29 percent to 25 percent. In fact, compared to whites and Hispanics, no group has a lower view of the Tea Party than African Americans.

And yet, Parker cites this poll as good news for the Tea Party, which she sees as a continuation of the struggles against slavery and racism.

I reported a few weeks ago that in a recent Pew survey about the tea party, 25 percent of blacks expressed a favorable opinion about the movement – just 6 points less than the favorability rating among whites.

No, I am not hanging out any “Mission Accomplished” banners.

But those who have been working, in good faith, and against aggressive and well-financed opposition, to help black Americans appreciate that their future lies in the ideals of freedom, are starting to see results.

No Americans have suffered more from the improper use of government and abuse of political power than black Americans. No Americans will benefit more from reforms that will permit greater freedom and ownership than black Americans.

The tea party movement, which sprung up from the hearts, minds and common sense of regular working Americans to restore American greatness by refocusing on the ideals of freedom, has touched everyone.

The fact that the message is reaching and beginning to touch black Americans is good news for everyone – maybe most of all blacks themselves.

America is about fighting for freedom. It began with settlers fighting a foreign empire. The struggle continued against slavery and racism.

The tea party is but the latest chapter.

South Carolina GOPer: Public Schools Leading To 'Holocaust In Our Churches' With Teachings On 'Evolutionism' & Homosexuality

A GOP candidate for lieutenant governor in South Carolina said yesterday that public schools are pushing a “silent holocaust” in churches by supposedly turning young people away from Christianity.

Ray Moore has made criticism of public schools a centerpiece of his campaign, urging the state to replace public schools with an education system led by “churches, families, and private association” and warning that they turn students, like a young Hillary Clinton, into anti-Christian “janissaries.”

Speaking yesterday with conservative talk show host Steve Deace, Moore warned that public schools are “wrecking” Christian families.

Moore claimed that studies show that “80 percent of Southern Baptists youths are leaving the church and abandoning the Christian faith, and we think all of this is pretty much attributable to government schooling.”

“We think the main culprit is public schooling,” he said. “So there’s a holocaust, a silent holocaust going on in our evangelical churches.”

He also attacked the “viruses” of same-sex marriage and abortion rights:

The pastors go on and on oblivious like nothing is happening and they’re out there preaching against same-sex marriage and abortion, so why is same-sex marriage and abortion and all of these viruses latching on to our society so readily? And we think part of it is government-sponsored education where they’re thoroughly and aggressively teaching socialism, humanism; turning their hearts away from Christ; teaching them evolutionism; Common Core has pervaded the system even in the so-called Bible Belt South; we have sex education apart from covenant marriages being taught and homosexuality is being taught in the Bible Belt as well as the Northeast and the far-west. So the system is thoroughly handed over to egregious and harmful teachings, and it’s just wrecking and causing havoc in our churches and in our family.

Back in 2007, Moore criticized California public schools after the state enacted new laws protecting LGBT students: “The public school system is a monster, “but this [the new laws] may be the most egregious thing they’ve done.”

His group sent out a statement alleging that California was “mandating that public school children be indoctrinated to accept as normal the homosexual lifestyle and other forms of sexual deviancy” and warning that “California’s schools are now promoting behaviors and lifestyles that are physically and spiritually dangerous for children.”

In a 2012 radio interview, while promoting the movie “IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America,” Moore railed against homosexuality:

We can look at the rise of the aggressive homosexual movement in our country, I’m old enough to remember it was as late as 1968 that it was pretty much an underground movement but it has just swept through our culture in a way now that Christians are on the defensive, marriage is under attack, they are teaching it to our children in the schools. We are looking at this and incredulously saying ‘how could this happen,’ this is another example of a tipping point in a bad direction, the rise of the modern, aggressive, homosexual movement and its attack on marriage.



In some of the states now they’re mandating the instruction of homosexuality and transgender education in the schools: California, some of the New England schools. It’s just incredible what’s happening and parents just sit there and think if they complain that they’ll listen. They won’t and the best way to deal with it is to get the kids out.

Paranoia-Rama: Joe Biden's Concentration Camps, Comcast Sharia Law & DC Drone Attack

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

It seems conservatives will never stop linking the 2010 health care reform law to the Holocaust or prophesying the rise of Sharia law in the US, not that any of such issues will matter anyway after President Obama attacks Washington D.C. in a drone strike!

5. Obama Will Launch Drone Strike On DC

Operation American Spring is hoping to bring anywhere from 10 million to 30 million people to Washington D.C. next month for an event the group thinks will force President Obama out of office.

One Operation American Spring organizer, Terry Trussell, believes that President Obama takes the threat so seriously that he may launch a drone strike on the nation’s capital to “get rid of” the protesters.

4. National Mall ‘Shrine To Abortion’

Religious Right groups failed badly in their attempt to block House approval of the National Women’s History Museum, insisting that they would only support the museum if its backers appointed a right-wing board chair.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., one of two women to vote against approval, alleged that the museum would “enshrine the radical feminist movement that stands against the pro-life movement, the pro-family movement and the pro-traditional family movement” and build an “ideological shrine to abortion” on the National Mall.

Ironically, the museum actually profiles conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly … and Bachmann herself.

3. Obamacare Just Like The Holocaust

Nothing says “Holocaust” like signing up people for health insurance through market-based exchanges, at least according to Tennessee GOP state senator Stacey Campfield. “Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory [sic] sign ups for ‘train rides’ for Jews in the 40s,” the Republican lawmaker wrote on his blog.

Campfield eventually offered a non-apology in which he regretted that people simply aren’t smart enough to understand his point:

I regret that some people miss the point of my post. It was not to offend. It was to warn. To draw attention to Obamacare and the slippery slope that I see occurring in the lives of myself, my constituents, and the rest of the country with the continued taking of freedom by the federal government.

In no way was my post meant to diminish or detract from the pain, suffering and loss of human life that occurred during this dark time in human history. Instead the post was meant to draw attention to the loss of freedom that we are currently experiencing. I stand by my steadfast opposition to Obamacare.

2. Joe Biden, Concentration Camp Guard

It should come as no surprise that Republican lawmakers are linking Obamacare to the Holocaust, since conservative movement leaders like Glenn Beck frequently insist that Democratic leaders are just itching to put everybody in concentration camps.

Beck went on a rant this week about a White House Correspondents Dinner sketch in which Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, playing her character on “Veep,” joined Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi at a tattoo parlor. This of course prompted Beck to allude to the Holocaust: “Why are they getting tattoos?” Beck asked. “Don’t they know that they’re the ones that are going to be running the camps? They don’t get the tattoos, they give the tattoos.”

1. Comcast Practicing Sharia Law

Speaking of Beck, his favorite congressman Rep. Louie Gohmert did the talk show host’s bidding during a congressional hearing this week on the merger between Comcast and Time Warner.

There are many legitimate concerns about the potential merger, but the Texas Republican made himself a laughingstock when he dedicated his time to accusing Comcast of snubbing Beck’s network, The Blaze, in favor of Al Jazeera America, which he said wants “to get their Sharia law push into the United States.”

When a Comcast representative denied Gohmert’s accusations, Gohmert suggested the representative may have been be perjuring himself.

David Benham In His Own Words: Gays 'Destructive,' 'Vile,' Controlled By 'Demonic Forces'

On Tuesday, we reported that David Benham, an anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-Muslim activist, had landed a house-flipping show on HGTV. Benham is someone who had been on our radar: he was featured on Right Wing Watch 2012, when he organized and funded an anti-gay prayer rally to coincide with the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.

The day after our report went up, HGTV announced without comment that it was dropping the show, which was to be hosted by Benham and his twin brother Jason.

Since our first story came out, many other examples of the brothers’ right-wing activism have surfaced. Back in 2004, the Benham brothers encouraged Charlotte [PDF] to deny a permit to an LGBT Pride event, with David insisting that the parade’s “filth” and “destructive,” “vile” activity “should not be allowed in our city.” Jeremy Hooper first reported on their remarks:

David Benham, 6130 Ferncliff Road, said I would agree 100% that this type of activity is destructive, and a tragedy. If you will look in your packet you will see one of the shems, his name was Steve the Drag Queen. He described some of the acts he witnessed and feels the Council has had the wool pulled over their eyes because the permit says for celebration and fellowship for the lesbian, gay bisexual transgender community. I saw first hand what celebration and fellowship was all about. This is filth, this is vile and should not be allowed in our City. I have a one-year old, a three-year old and a five-year old and I want them to grow up in a city that will honor the folks that are in it.

Jason Benham, 761 Harris Street, Concord, said I have a 6-month old daughter and a 2 ½ year old little boy and when I stood out there in Marshall Park and heard the comedian say I am an out lesbian, I love 4-year old girls and I call them "dykes on triks, they are hard to come by but, boy are they good." I stood out there crying in my heart that only 40 or 50 of us Christian men went out there to try to give these homosexuals another answer. We were not there to bash them, we were there to tell them that Jesus loves you just the way you are, but he refuses to leave you that way. They have a right to apply for this permit, but you have a right and responsibility to deny it. I employ you not to be governed by the fear in which you feel. If you deny them this permit you will open a can of worms but you in your leadership position have to take that responsibility and you have to not allow the fear of making this homosexual community mad. You have to accept that responsibility and deny them every permit that they ask for.

David Benham also falsely claimed during an interview with CNN’s OutFront yesterday that he never compared gay rights advocates to Nazis, although he did exactly that in this article:

In terms of Ken’s take on Referendum 74 (same sex marriage vote), if evil is being accepted and appreciated at the national level, aggressive Christian men must lead the charge against it. In the late 1940′s England realized this truth with Neville Chamberlain’s Policy of Appeasement and the Nazi regime. Chamberlain thought he could somehow “appease” the fuehrer, yet Winston Churchill aggressively stood against this policy and proclaimed that they must kill Hitler and destroy the regime in its entirety. It wasn’t long before Chamberlain’s “politically correct” policy fell flat on its face, and Churchill – the more aggressive man – took the reins and joined America in defeating the beast called, Naziism [sic].

David also alleged in a 2012 interview with anti-gay activist Michael Brown that the “homosexual agenda” —along with Islam and abortion rights — are part of “demonic forces and agendas.”

In an interview with Janet Mefferd about his Democratic National Convention prayer rally, he said that “homosexuality and its agenda” are “attacking the nation.”

You can find additional public statements Benham has made about homosexuality, Islam and abortion rights in our previous reports.

AIM Claims Voting Rights Are 'The Voting Version Of Reparations For Slavery'

Yesterday, Accuracy In Media published a report by James Simpson alleging that voter fraud is a massive, “existential threat to our American Republic,” and the result of Democratic election tampering. Like other right-wing reports on voter fraud, the article is highly speculative and fails to offer any actual evidence of large-scale fraud.

In fact, legislative “fixes” to combat the non-existent voter fraud epidemic recently lost in courts in PennsylvaniaArkansas and Wisconsin due to the inability to find any actual evidence of voter fraud.

The only “proof” of voter fraud that Simpson lists is college students voting in the state where they attend school, which is legal, and the findings of the extremely unreliable “crosscheck” system, which checks to see if voters in more than one state have similar names and birthdays. He writes said that the campaign to replace the electoral college with a national popular vote and efforts to restore felons’ right to vote are will also increase voter fraud, mainly because he thinks such steps will benefit Democrats.

Simpson alleges that “Democrats’ attitude toward voter fraud is the voting version of reparations for slavery,” pointing to a case in Port Chester, New York, where the town switched to a new voting method following a court case on lack of Latino representation in government.

He claims that “Hispanics were allowed to cast six votes” in Port Chester’s council races.

However, the method known as cumulative voting (where each voter can cast multiple votes, including more than one to the same candidate), applied to all voters, not just Hispanic voters as Simpson suggests.

The Brennan Center notes that “the Department of Justice filed a complaint alleging Port Chester’s at-large system of electing its board of trustees diluted the voting strength of its Hispanic citizens” in 2006, under the Bush administration.

Democrats’ attitude toward voter fraud is the voting version of reparations for slavery. Some Democrats have even said that because minorities and the poor have little influence, “extraordinary measures (for example, stretching the absentee ballot or registration rules) are required to compensate.” Democrat election officials do this all the time, and a form of it has actually become official Justice Department policy in its effort to boost Hispanic representation.

Hispanic voters in Port Chester, New York were allowed to use something called “cumulative voting” in an election for village trustees. There were six trustee seats and Hispanics were allowed to cast six votes in any way they chose, for example, casting one vote for each of six candidates or all six for one candidate. Cumulative voting has also been used to elect a school board in Amarillo, Texas, the county commission in Chilton County, Alabama, and the city council in Peoria, Illinois.

Having rationalized the moral high ground with their “voter suppression” charge—Democrats go on the warpath. In recent years this has involved lawsuits, organized slander and a nationwide campaign to resist election reform. Under the Obama presidency, it has also included using federal agencies to attack private citizens and organizations.



So who is doing the suppressing? By thwarting efforts to clean up the voting process, Obama and the Democrats are suppressing every single legitimate vote stolen by voter fraud. By cheating conservatives of their ability to organize and communicate with the voting public, Obama’s IRS is denying their rights to free speech. By denying conservatives’ right to educate the public, for example, regarding candidates’ records on Obamacare, the IRS is preventing voters from being informed. Obama and the Democrats are not battling voter suppression, they have institutionalized it.



Voter fraud, and the corrupt political infrastructure that facilitates, or at best ignores it, is an existential threat to our American Republic. The only answer is to elect principled conservative leaders willing to recognize and confront this threat.

Flashback: David Benham Described Homosexuality As Demonic, Warned Islam Is Taking Over America

When HGTV pulled the plug on a reality TV show starring North Carolina real estate dealers and brothers David and Jason Benham following a Right Wing Watch report on David’s anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-Muslim activism, David Benham insisted that the network withdrew support due to misinformation and “lying,” asserting that neither he nor his brother “hate homosexuals.”

Although Religious Right activists have been rushing to defend Benham, none has yet been able to explain how Right Wing Watch’s list of verbatim quotes from Benham constituted misinformation.

In fact, the interviews we featured in our post are just examples of Benham’s large portfolio of right-wing activism. Since writing our original post, we have found several other examples of Benham’s extremism.

Benham’s group refers to abortion rights as a “holocaust” and said that “the devil” was behind Roe v. Wade.

In a January 2012 interview, Benham explained his “love” for homosexuals when he suggested that gay people are under the control of “demonic forces,” arguing that once he succeeds in recriminalizing abortion, he will next defeat the “homosexual agenda” and Islam.

Benham was speaking with none other than Michael Brown, an anti-gay activist who has gone so far as to defend Uganda’s brutal homosexuality law and who leads a group which includes Benham as a board member.

Benham: We have the tools, we have the stones, we have the weapons, we’ve been faithful with the lion and bear stories, we’re charging at this Goliath called abortion and when we take Goliath down, I promise you, all of the church will start coming out of the caves. The homosexual agenda is next, tolerance towards radical Islam is next, we’re going to start taking these Goliaths down, we’re not afraid anymore.

Brown: To take them down means with the life of Jesus, light instead of darkness, life instead of death, transformation instead of bondage.

Benham: ‘Our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the principalities, rulers and authorities of darkness.’ We love these people and so we are not going to allow the demonic forces and agendas behind them to destroy life.

In an August 2012 edition of Brown’s show, Benham said that Islam is a “demonic agenda that wants to come and take America” and repeated the bogus right-wing myth that President Obama endorsed a Muslim prayer rally.

He also told Brown that he is leading a “spiritual battle” against Islam, warning that the United States will soon “change gods,” embrace Islam and invite war.

Previously, the Anti-Defamation League reported that Benham called mosques a “den of iniquity” and said Muslims are “enslaved in the tyrannical bondage of Islam” and are “the enemy attacking” America.
