Last week, Alex Jones attacked Hillary Clinton for looking like “Emperor Palpatine in drag,” impersonating her by saying, “Go forth my children, the day of doom is at hand, go out into the world and burn it with the great cleansing of Hillary and the great goddess. Cleanse the earth with blood, our sacred goddess of death, Kali.”
“This is like something out of a science fiction/horror film where they’re electing a cult, demon, Antichrist, Linda Blair,” he added.
Days after telling a meeting of anti-LGBT activists that he is with them “100 percent,” Donald Trump sent a tweet today thanking the LGBT community for what he apparently thinks is its uniform support for his presidential candidacy.
Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.
Trump is trying to use the massacre in Orlando to win support for his cause of attacking all Muslim-Americans, including LGBT Muslims.
We know that Trump is pretending to be a friend to LGBT people in order to justify his discriminatory proposals, such as his proposed ban on the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims from stepping foot in the U.S., because his own words and actions make clear that he is no ally of the LGBT community.
Not only would Trump radically reshape the judiciary, where many key LGBT issues are decided, but he has also vowed to sign anti-LGBT activists’ top legislative priority, the misnamed First Amendment Defense Act, which would give legal approval to discrimination against LGBT people, and gave his blessing to Kentucky clerk Kim Davis’ attempt to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
And that’s not to mention the fact that his attacks on women, Latinos and immigrants are also attacks on many LGBT people.
Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson reacted to the massacre at an Orlando gay club by making the absurd claim that liberal LGBT rights advocates have aligned themselves with radical Islamists and are now reaping what they have sowed.
Robertson said that liberals are facing a “dilemma” because they love both LGBT equality and Islamic extremism, and that it is better for conservatives like himself not to get involved but to instead just watch the two groups kill each other.
“The left is having a dilemma of major proportions and I think for those of us who disagree with some of their policies, the best thing to do is to sit on the sidelines and let them kill themselves,” he said.
Earlier in the program, Robertson went into more detail about what he called “the dilemma of the liberals, the so-called progressives, because they have two favored groups. One, the Muslims. Number two, the homosexuals.”
We’re looking at a favored group by the left, the homosexuals, and that in Islam is punishable by death or imprisonment or some sanction, so what are the left going to do? How are they going to describe it? And they don’t know quite what to do now. The fact that this Islamic gentleman opens fire in a gay nightclub and kills almost 50 homosexuals, that says something and tells the fact that Islam is against homosexuality, so the liberals are going to be scrambling to find some rationale, I think they’re going to have a hard time doing it.
In the meantime, Donald Trump is riding high because he said we should screen these people and he’s absolutely right. We should screen them. So the left is saying, ‘Oh you’re anti-Muslim, you’re racist’ and all this. Suddenly, that part of the narrative doesn’t play too well and they’re stuck as to what to do. But Trump is enjoying a victory.
Robertson went on to criticize President Obama for being soft on terrorism and sticking to “the narrative” that Islam is not inherently violent, irresponsibly ignoring the fact that “radical Islam is in the religion of Islam.”
He added that the issue of homosexuality and the Islamic world is “a murky picture” because Lawrence of Arabia may have spent the night with a sheikh who tried to “perform homosexual acts” on him.
UPDATE: The Christian Broadcasting Network released a statement today saying that Robertson was “clearly” using the word “killing” metaphorically during his discussion of a mass murder.

Today on “Breitbart News Daily,” Donald Trump lashed out at his conservative detractors who have continued to criticize him even after he all but clinched the GOP presidential nomination.
Trump, who said that such foes decided to “immediately stop talking about me and my views” following the terrorist attack in Orlando, accused the “jealous” and “pathetic” Mitt Romney and others of trying to put Hillary Clinton in the White House.
“Even though I’m going to appoint great judges, you know, we could have as many as five judges, and she’s going to appoint super radical liberals and I’m appointing, you know, you saw the 11 names I gave, and we’re going to have great judges, conservative, all picked by the Federalist Society,” he said.
After describing this weekend's massacre in Orlando as a false flag attack, conspiracy theorist broadcaster Alex Jones said on his radio program on Sunday that the LGBT community is to blame for the deadly terrorist attack at a gay nightclub.
Jones, a close ally of Donald Trump, was particularly angry that President Obama addressed the fact that the assault was directed at LGBT people, claiming that the community frequently hypes the threat of anti-LGBT violence in order to take control of the education system “so you can sexualize my children and indoctrinate them into your cult.”
The “InfoWars” broadcaster accused LGBT and radical Islamic leaders of working together so they can promote pedophilia and abuse children. “No wonder the radical left is allied with Islam, they’re a bunch of perverts, they want access to our kids,” he said.
Later in the program, Jones said that he does not hate gay people, he simply hates “the fake, flamboyant, you’re going to run society, you’re going to tell our five-year-olds how to live” agenda that gay rights activists purportedly promote.
LGBT leaders, he said, have backed liberal policies that led to the Orlando attack: “I charge the left and I charge Obama and I charge the LGBT community in general with endangering America and with the blood of these 50-plus innocent men and women who did not deserve to die, who did not deserve to have bullets fired into them and all the other hundreds of thousands of other liberals and gays and others in the Middle East that have been murdered in the last five years under the Al Qaeda/ISIS onslaught that our government and CNN has pushed and said is a good thing.”
Today in New Hampshire, Donald Trump defended his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country and blamed the massacre in Orlando on America’s immigration system, despite the fact that the shooter was born in the U.S.
Trump repeated the bogus claim that Hillary Clinton will not only “ban guns” and begin “abolishing the Second Amendment,” but will also “bring vastly more radical Islamic immigration into this country.”
“She wants to take away Americans’ guns and then admit the very people who want to slaughter us," he said. "Let them come into the country, we don’t have guns, let them come in, let them have all the fun they want.”
He then added that he “will be meeting with the NRA” to “discuss how to ensure Americans have the means to protect themself in this age of terror.”
Seemingly attempting to outdo Donald Trump in trying to come up with the most cynical and thoughtless responses to the massacre in Orlando, Ted Cruz released a statement yesterday condemning liberals for what he claims is insufficient condemnation of anti-LGBT violence perpetrated by groups like ISIS and the Iranian government:
For all the Democrats who are loud champions of the gay and lesbian community whenever there is a culture battle waging, now is the opportunity to speak out against an ideology that calls for the murder of gays and lesbians. ISIS and the theocracy in Iran (supported with American taxpayer dollars) regularly murder homosexuals, throwing them from buildings and burying them under rocks. This is wrong, it is evil, and we must all stand against it. Every human being has a right to live according to his or her faith and conscience, and nobody has a right to murder someone who doesn’t share their faith or sexual orientation. If you’re a Democratic politician and you really want to stand for LGBT, show real courage and stand up against the vicious ideology that has targeted our fellow Americans for murder.
Aside from ignoring the ongoing efforts to battleISISterrorists and making false claims about U.S. tax money going to Iran, Cruz said that liberals are too cowardly to condemn those who call “for the murder of gays and lesbians,” absurdly suggesting that U.S. leaders haven’t already condemned terrorist atrocities and ISIS’s ideology.
Last week, televangelist Jim Bakker hosted Don and Mary Colbert of “Divine Health” and Mark Taylor, a Florida man who claims that God toldhim that Donald Trump will be the next president, to discuss the upcoming election.
Unsurprisingly, they were all enthralled with Taylor’s “message from God,” and were quite confident that the prophecy will materialize and God will put Trump in the White House.
Don Colbert, for his part, urged viewers to stand with Trump or face “the spirit of Antichrist” found in Hillary Clinton:
When I saw this prophecy, when the spirit of God hit me like someone slapped me in the face, it awakened me and I said, ‘Wait, whose side am I going to be on?’ Remember Moses? Remember the Korah rebellion? Remember the people that sided with Korah, how the earth opened up and swallowed them?
Well, we as Christians have got to make the right choice because if we don’t, this nation is in decline and this nation will be in judgment and our children and our grandchildren will not have the great America that we want for them.
That spirit of Antichrist is majorly on one of these candidates, and that’s Hillary Clinton, and Jesus even said there will be many Antichrists in the world; well, that spirit of Antichrist is on our president right now. So, as Christians, we have got to turn out and vote. If we don’t turn out and vote, we are electing Hillary Clinton.
“These homosexuals are a bunch of perverts and pedophiles, that’s who was a victim here, a bunch of disgusting homosexuals at a gay bar,” he said. He later added: “The good news is that at least 50 of these pedophiles are not going to be harming children anymore. The bad news is that a lot of the homos in the bar are still alive, so they’re going to continue to molest children and recruit people into their filthy homosexual lifestyle.”
Anderson explained that he didn’t approve of the shooter’s actions … but only because he thinks the victims should have been put to death by the government. “These people all should have been killed anyway, but they should have been killed through the proper channels, as in, they should’ve been executed by a righteous government,” he said.
Anderson said that gun owners and pastors are the real victims of the tragedy, predicting that the government will use the massacre as an opportunity to confiscate firearms, demonize Christians and outlaw hateful speech.
At the end of the day, Anderson said, the victims were on their way to an early death from AIDS and syphilis anyway.
Fresh from congratulating himself “for being right on radical Islamic terrorism,” Donald Trump made the rounds on the morning shows today, where he hinted that President Obama may actually be rooting for the terrorists.
Referring to Obama and the threat of terrorism, Trump said during a call-in with Fox & Friends, "He doesn't get it or he gets it better than anybody understand. It's one or the other." Gets it better than anybody understands? In other words, Obama has a secret—and nefarious—agenda.
"We're led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he's got something else in mind," Trump continued. "And the something else in mind, you know, people can't believe it. People cannot—they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the ways he acts and can't even mention the words radical Islamic terrorism. There's something going on. It's inconceivable."
When asked about his comments later on Good Morning America, Trump reiterated the same message, insinuating the president is willfully ignoring the problem.
"There are a lot of people that think maybe he doesn't want to get it," he told Savannah Guthrie. " A lot of people think maybe he doesn't want to know about it. I happen to think he just doesn't know what he's doing."
At one campaign rally, Trump said that the president is ignoring the threat of terrorism for surreptitious reasons: “We can’t close our eyes. I don’t know what’s wrong with Obama, he wants to close his eyes and pretend it’s not happening. Why is he so emphatic on not solving the problem? There’s something we don’t know about. There’s something we don’t know about.”
