Yesterday on “InfoWars,” Alex Jones invited conservative talk show host Michael Savage to discuss his new novel “Countdown to Mecca,” but not before Jones asked Savage about President Obama’s plot to destroy America.
“What’s the score right now: patriots vs. the French Revolution crazies?” Jones asked. Savage had bad news to report: “The guillotines are ready, the guillotines are ready and they are greasing the blades. How much more successful can they be? Internment camps? I mean, what is next with this group of maniacs?”
Savage told Jones that the Obama administration is trying to purge the military of leaders “who could have led a movement against an illegitimate government” in order to weaken resistance to his socialist plans. “One general after the other was purged like Stalin purged them, only instead of shooting them first they smeared the generals,” he said.
The two agreed that Obama is now degrading the police by stoking a race war in which he will “deputize” gang members affiliated with the Crips and the Bloods. Savage told Jones:
Remember my last book, ‘Stop the Coming Civil War’? Guess what, it started. Has there been a civil war? Yea, it’s a slow burning civil war. What do you think we are looking at here? It’s a race war. These are their shock troops, they don’t have the brown shirts yet, they don’t have the armbands, but soon Obama could deputize them. Isn’t that a natural army for him? Take the Crips and the Bloods, give them a green uniform and give them a weapon and they’ll keep order in the streets. Won’t they?
Later in the program, Savage said that Obama has “got the gangs on the streets on his side” and “he’s got them armed.”
“You’re going to see more race war right up until the Labor Day of 2016 for an obvious reason,” he said, alluding to the next election. He claimed that Obama won’t declare martial law or force people into internment camps just yet because “they’re going to take the street garbage and they’re going to take the illegal immigrants and they’re going to warp the entire election.”
“He’s performing along the lines of any other petty dictator,” Savage said. “He is Al Sharpton with a smoother act.”
He explained that “if we all woke up tomorrow morning and decided that our sexual preference is homosexual” and “we shall have nothing to do with the opposite sex,” then we would turn to scientists to meddle with DNA in an effort to carry on the species, which would ultimately lead to human extinction.
“Our friends in the ‘global climatological change movement’ or whatever they’re calling it these days” should oppose gay rights, he said, because “they want us to understand that there’s a common good, not just of all humanity but of all creation and if we do something to damage all creation, we’ve done something that’s just intolerable.”
Mike Huckabee, who is announcing his campaign for the presidency today, has crafted an image of a nice, folksy “conservative who is not mad at anybody.” However, this image betrays the reality that the Republican leader has made a career of mean-spirited rhetoric and a propensity for conspiracy theories.
While he has gained national attention for his personal attacks on celebrities like Beyoncé Knowles and Natalie Portman, Huckabee has spent years launching harsh attacks on the gay community while playing into right-wing fears about Obama’s upbringing and purported creation of a tyrannical government.
Opposition to gay rights has become such an emphasis in Huckabee’s political career that he threatened to leave the GOP because party leaders “abdicated” on the issue of gay marriage.
Despite all of this, Huckabee says that he and other conservatives are the real victims of the gay rights debate. He has accused gay rights advocates of trying to shut down churches and “criminalize Christianity,” even leveling the bogus charge that pastors can be prosecuted for refusing to officiate at a same-sex couple’s wedding.
Huckabee even recommended that people refuse to join the military until after Obama leaves office because of the president’s support for gay rights, which he says amounts to anti-Christian discrimination.
Obama Conspiracy Theories
Huckabee has leveled vicious attacks at Obama by bringing up his childhood, particularly the time he lived with his mother and stepfather in Indonesia, to suggest that the president is not a real American and not a Christian. Huckabee sparked controversy after he twice told conservative pundit Steve Malzberg that Obama grew up in Kenya, where his Kenyan father — whom the president met only once — and his grandfather — whom he never met — turned him against Western countries like Great Britain.
Huckabee said that it was merely a slip of the tongue, lashing out at journalists for refusing to read “page 183” of his book where he clearly stated Obama grew up partly in Indonesia. However, the mythical “page 183” does not talk about Indonesia (in fact, nowhere in Huckabee’s book is the country mentioned.)
In an interview with far-right talk show host Bryan Fischer, Huckabee said that he agreed with Fischer’s point that Obama’s childhood instilled in him “anti-Americanism.” Huckabee added: “The point was that they felt like that due to Obama’s father and grandfather it could be that his version and view of the Mau Mau Revolution was very different than most of the people who perhaps would grow up in the United States…. Most of us grew up going to Boy Scout meetings and, you know, our communities were filled with Rotary Clubs, not madrassas.”
“When I go back to American history, that’s why the American Revolution started,” he said. “You had a government that became a tyranny and that government began to tell people what limitations of their belief could be.”
However, while serving as governor of Arkansas, Huckabee signed into law a contraception coverage mandate that had even fewer religious exemptions than those found in the Affordable Care Act.
Such claims will resonate with Religious Right activists, who regularly make warnings about the threats of gay rights, stoke fears of Big Government and suggest that Obama is a tyrannical leader. As Huckabee told one right-wing forum organized by Porter during his last presidential campaign, in which Porter served in a leadership role, he is not catering to the movement, but is from the movement:
Ben Carson, who officially launched a campaign for the presidency today, said in an interview on the End Times radio program “Trunews” in March 2013 that “it would take an act of God” for him to run for public office.
To get a gist of what “Trunews” is like, just weeks before he interviewed Carson, the program’s host, Rick Wiles, accused President Obama of having “spiritually sodomized” the nation and said the president would try to declare himself God, just as the Antichrist would.
Although Carson was modest about his political ambitions in the interview with Wiles, he did boast about his power to motivate audiences, telling the “Trunews” host that Americans in general were “discouraged” and “just waiting to die” … until they heard him speak.
Carson also told Wiles that the Greek and Spanish economic crises were a “tremendous gift from God in showing us in real time, in a relatively short period of time, what happens when you follow” the kinds of policies pushed by the Obama administration.
Carson evidentially encountered the “act of God” he was waiting for: He told the Christian Broadcasting Network last year that he felt God’s “fingers” telling him to run for office.
Despite the outlet’s fringe views, particularly the site’s debunked claims about President Obama’s birth certificate, it has received plenty of publicity through Fox News and the Drudge Report, regularly scores interviews with Republican elected officials, and has provided a home for columns by GOP presidential hopefuls Rick Santorum and Ben Carson. (WorldNetDaily has, however, become much less enthusiastic about promotingbirtherconspiracytheories now that it is becomingacheerleader for Canadian-born Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign).
“Along the path of the last 18 years, WND.com has launched some excellent reporters, editors and nonfiction authors on their careers,” WND commentator Craige McMillan boasts. “And to that list I am working hard to add at least one novelist, with my five-volume series on Armageddon.”
Another columnist, Lord Christopher Monckton, gushes that WND editor Joseph Farah is playing his part in stopping Obama’s imminent dictatorship: “WND, Joseph Farah’s vision made electronically real, is above all else a champion of keeping free speech free. For under Mr. Obama, the ‘Democrats’ are galloping toward outright totalitarianism. Their policies and their tactics are becoming indistinguishable from those of the fascists of Hitler’s Germany and Mussolini’s Italy, or the Communists of Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China or Pol Pot’s Cambodia.”
WND’s “award-winning” executive news director Joe Kovacs just before the election wrote an article based on a YouTube video he saw about how the “Bible Code” prophesizes “bad news for Barack Obama” as apparently the “hidden texts in the Holy Bible indicate Mitt Romney will be America’s next president.” Not only would Romney win, but the Bible Code even predicted Romney will be a “fitting president” who has God’s favor.
2. Romney Can Still Win Despite Election Defeat
Tea Party Nation head Judson Phillips also works as a WND columnist, where he has argued that if enough states boycott the Electoral College, then the House of Representatives will get to pick the President and give Romney one last shot. “That is how we can still pull this election out and make Mitt Romney president in January,” he writes. “We need this concept shared with every tea party, liberty and patriotic group throughout the country.” Of course his proposal is completely without merit, but that didn’t stop at least one Republican state legislator from hopping on board.
3. Obama Building ‘FEMA Concentration Camps’
WND commentator and Faith 2 Action president Janet Porter wondered if President Obama was using the fears about the Swine flu to “round up American citizens” and put them into “FEMA concentration camps.” Porter has also used her WND column to push fears that Obama would enact “jail sentences for those who seek treatment outside the socialized health care system” and create a massive “food shortage” so opponents will be “starved to death.”
4. Obama Plans Negotiations with Osama Bin Laden
Porter in WND predicted that Obama bin Laden will be overjoyed by Obama’s election as President and will even be able to meet with him personally. Like most other predictions in WND, this one turned out to be false.
5. Obama is a Gay, Secret Muslim, Foreign-Born Imposter
6. Gays Behind the Holocaust and Preparing to Lead the Next One
WND columnist Scott Lively, who is best known for his work in shaping Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill, is the author of the book, The Pink Swastika, about how gays were behind Nazism and the Holocaust in order to have “vengeance against the people whose moral laws had relegated pagan homo-occultism to obscurity and ignominy.” WND Super Store sells his bizarre book and WND editor Joseph Farah eagerly endorsed Lively’s claim while warning that the gay rights movement may bring Nazism to America.
If gay people don’t do it first, then President Obama must be the one behind the next holocaust. Farah claimed that he discovered proof that Obama wants a new Holocaust in a speech he delivered at Buchenwald where he used the line, “We are here today because we know this work is not yet finished.”
Farah admitted that he is taking the line, which was about the need to combat Holocaust denialism, out of context. But since Obama has a tendency of “speaking in code” to Muslim audiences, Farah explained, then he must be sending a secret message to Muslims to kill Jews: “So, I ask you, am I really taking Obama’s words at Buchenwald out of context? Or am I the only one seeing them in context?
Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition spoke with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios this morning about her group’s campaign to block a proposal in Fairfax County, Virginia, that would add gender identity to the county education system’s nondiscrimination policy.
Lafferty told Rios that “confused” transgender students should only be allowed to use single-occupancy restrooms, while transgender teachers shouldn’t be allowed to teach altogether. “These individuals are psychologically unhealthy and they shouldn’t be teaching in the class,” Lafferty said.
Lafferty cited the high suicide ideation rate among people who identify as transgender as a reason for schools to bar transgender teachers: “We know these people are trouble and they need help, but they shouldn’t be put in the classroom.”
“It’s a scary thing,” Rios said. “It’s frightening and it’s sad and the suicide rate is high and so this is not normal, it never will be normal. It’s harmful and most of all, though, our job is to protect our children. We need to help those that are confused sexually, yes, but we do not help them at the expense of the safety of our kids.”
Rios added that supporters of the measure represent “the face of intimidation and evil.”
Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes told a Montana “patriot movement” radio program last week that the government is using the Jade Helm 15 military training exercise — a routine exercise that has become the center of an elaborate far-right conspiracy theory — to test who in the military and elected office will resist a future implementation of martial law.
“I think Jade Helm is in part conditioning and vetting of the military to see who will and will not go along,” Rhodes told the “ Liberty Brothers” radio program, adding that the training exercise would quickly change from preparation for deployment overseas to experimenting in going after right-wing groups.
“I think it’s also conditioning and assessment and vetting of the local politicians,” he added. “Who raises questions? Who has any serious, meaningful questions about what we’re doing with this exercise? They put their name down. I think they’re figuring out who is loyal and who is not loyal and who is likely to go along, with the town councils and county commissioners as well.”
He added that the exercise is also “meant to condition the public” and “intimidate” those who are on to the plot by telling them, “Resistance is futile, if you dare to oppose us this is what will happen, Navy Seals and Delta Force will come get you.”
Rhodes added that when he was in the Army in the 1980s, he “probably wouldn’t have blinked” at such an exercise, but “this is a different world we’re in” because “we have a government that’s made it very clear it considers veterans and gun owners and anybody who’s a constitutionalist to be the future enemy.”
“Trunews” host Rick Wiles is joining other right-wing pundits in takingoffense at President Obama’s joke at the White House Correspondents' Dinner about ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann’s contention that his policies are bringing the world closer to World War III, the End Times and the Rapture.
On the Friday edition of his show, Wiles attacked the “uncircumcised philistine in the White House” along with the “adoring, obedient, subservient, lapdog news reporters” who attended the dinner. (In 1 Samuel, David refers to Goliath as the “uncircumcised philistine” who seeks to “defy the armies of the living God”).
He said that Obama is just as “evil” as King Sennacherib, who went to war with Judah, and similarly is “leading people into sin against God.”
When co-host Larry Kutzler asked if poor political leadership is a form of God’s judgment, Koenig responded that the election of President Obama was a sign of divine judgment because of his support for LGBT rights, adding that further judgment could come in a financial collapse at the end of 2015.
Koenig, who runs World Watch Daily, also suggested that the drought in California is a result of the state’s support for same-sex marriage and abortion rights: “We’ve got a state that over and over again will go against the word of God, that will continually take positions on marriage and abortion and on a lot of things that are just completely opposed to the scriptures and unfortunately a lot of times when it starts in California it spreads to the rest of the country and even spreads to the rest of the world. So there very likely could be a drought component to this judgment.”
Earlier in the program, Koening said that preacher Franklin Graham is “absolutely correct” to believe that the Obama administration is pushing an “Antichrist movement” on America.
Koenig was especially upset that pro-LGBT-rights Christians attended a recent White House Easter prayer breakfast, warning that “there will be consequences” for the inclusion of such Christians.
One week before the Supreme Court heard arguments in a set of marriage equality cases last month, Accuracy In Media’s Cliff Kincaid convened a collection of fringe anti-gay activists , including Matt Barber and Peter LaBarbera, to address the issue at a press conference.
Kincaid opened up the event with a PowerPoint presentation, which included a Photoshop of the Supreme Court’s more liberal wing wearing straightjackets to illustrate the “critical point” that “it really is insanity” to allow marriage equality.
“The reason we’re doing this is not just to make people laugh, but we’re trying to make a critical point about this issue, that it really is insanity to try to pretend that there’s no difference between the sexes and that people can just marry other people for any apparent reason at all,” he said. “And it’s not going to stop with one man marrying another man or one woman marrying another woman. If we go down this road, it’s a road to ruin, we don’t really know where it’s going to end up yet.”
“But we believe it is a form of lunacy, of insanity, for the Supreme Court to even consider declaring under the Constitution that there’s some constitutional right to gay marriage,” he concluded.
Later, in a presentation on “how the Republican party is going gay,” Kincaid read derisively a passage from the Republican National Committee’s 2013 “Growth and Opportunity Project” report, which called on the party to campaign among LGBT people and “demonstrate we care about” them.
“Well, of course we care about these people,” Kincaid said. “We care about them a lot and we care about them so much we want to see them free of disease and returned to a normal, healthy lifestyle.”
This led him to quote the British author Paul Johnson, who lamented in a 2006 book that the decriminalization of homosexuality had “made it possible for homosexuals to organize openly into a powerful lobby,” creating “a monster in our midst, powerful and clamoring, flexing its muscles, threatening, vengeful and vindictive towards anyone who challenges its outrageous claims, and bent on making fundamental — and to most of us horrifying — changes to civilized patterns of sexual behaviour.”
A Supreme Court ruling striking down marriage equality bans, Kincaid said, “would be a violation not only of the Constitution, but a violation of natural law, a violation of science and biology.”
“Not only that,” he added, “it would represent the victory really of only one or two percent of the population…yet it looks like they have positions of power in the major media, corporations, academia and, of course, government.”
Neurosurgeon-turned-conservative-activist Ben Carson announced his intention to run for president today, which gives us the opportunity to look back at some of the most outrageous statements he has made since bursting onto the national stage with his fiery anti-Obama speech to the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast.
While some candidates may regret unfortunate “gaffes,” Carson actually boasts about his extreme views, propensity for conspiracy theories and sometimes downright bizarre statements. He also relishes the blowback to such remarks, charging that any criticism of his claims amounts to an attack on free speech.
Here are just five of the wildest statements Carson has made since entering the political arena:
1) “Obamacare is really I think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery”
Not only is Obamacare the “worst thing” since slavery, Carson told the 2013 Values Voter Summit, but it also “is slavery in a way because it is making all of us subservient to the government.”
In an interview the next year, Carson said that Obamacare is worse than the September 11, 2011 attacks, later suggesting that Obama wanted to “take over health care” in order to “take control” and build a “socialist/communist” country. “If there were no Fox News and if there was no conservative radio, we would already be Cuba,” he said, after warning that Obama won’t be “happy unless Fox News were shut down and there was no more criticism of his actions.”
2) Not sure “there will even be an election in 2016”
Carson envisions a doomsday scenario in which Americans will have to combat ISIS fighters crossing the southern border because the Obama administration will refuse to do so.
“Think about Nazi Germany,” Carson said last year. “Most of those people did not believe in what Hitler was doing. But did they speak up? Did they stand up for what they believe in? They did not, and you saw what happened. And if you believe that same thing can't happen again, you’re very wrong.”
5) Obama may be “guilty of treason”
Carson, who repeatedlyaccuses Obama of violating the Constitution, said during the Department of Homeland Security funding fight earlier this year that Americans should “start talking about treason” if the president refused comply with the GOP’s demands to reverse his executive actions on immigration.
“If things are done that are contrary to the security of this country, whoever does them is guilty of treason,” he said.
After warning that a Supreme Court decision striking down bans on same-sex marriage could lead to a civil war, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson took to WorldNetDaily yesterday to warn that “barring a miracle, the family that has existed since antiquity will likely crumble, presaging the fall of Western civilization itself.”
Dobson wrote that the “homosexual activist movement” is bent on “overturning laws prohibiting pedophilia” and turning the U.S. into Sodom and Gomorrah.
“Pastors may have to officiate at same-sex marriages, and they could be prohibited from preaching certain passages of Scripture,” Dobson wrote. “Those who refuse to comply will not only be threatened legally, but many will be protested and picketed by activists. Perhaps this is a worst-case scenario, but maybe not. Prison is also a possibility.”
I do not recall a time when the institutions of marriage and the family have faced such peril, or when the forces arrayed against them were more formidable or determined. Barring a miracle, the family that has existed since antiquity will likely crumble, presaging the fall of Western civilization itself. This is a time for concerted prayer, divine wisdom and greater courage than we have ever been called upon to exercise.
For more than 50 years, the homosexual activist movement has sought to implement a master plan that has had as its centerpiece the destruction or redesign of the family. Many of these objectives have largely been realized, including widespread support of the gay lifestyle, discrediting of Scriptures that condemn homosexuality or sexual immorality, muzzling of the clergy and Christian media, inclusion of gays and lesbians in all branches of the military, granting of special privileges and rights in the law, overturning laws prohibiting pedophilia, indoctrinating children and future generations through public education, and securing all the legal benefits of marriage for any two or more people who claim to have homosexual tendencies. By promoting what is known as LGBT, we must remember that the “B” stands for bisexuality. That would include acceptance of sexual relations between both genders in groups and among every category of sexual expression outside the bonds of marriage. Now the proponents of LGBT seek to legalize gay and lesbian marriage, which could mean anything or nothing in a few years.
Admittedly, there have been various societies in history where homosexuality has flourished, including the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, in ancient Greece and in the Roman Empire. None of these civilizations survived. Furthermore, even where sexual perversion was tolerated or flourished, the institution of marriage continued to be honored in law and custom. Only in the last few years has what is called “gay marriage” been given equal status with biblical male-female unions. In fact, to date only 18 countries in the world recognize the legitimacy of same-sex marriage. America appears on the verge of becoming No. 19. God help us if we throw the divine plan for humankind on the ash heap of history.
Let’s get to the bottom line. If the U.S. Supreme Court redefines marriage to include same-sex unions, I guarantee you that it will not be the end of the matter. An avalanche of court cases will be filed on related issues that can’t even be imagined today. Here are a few that we can foresee:
1. Religious liberty will be assaulted from every side. You can be certain that conservative churches will be dragged into court by the hundreds. Their leaders will be required to hire people who don’t share the beliefs of their denominations and constituents. Pastors may have to officiate at same-sex marriages, and they could be prohibited from preaching certain passages of Scripture. Those who refuse to comply will not only be threatened legally, but many will be protested and picketed by activists. Perhaps this is a worst-case scenario, but maybe not. Prison is also a possibility.
2. Christian businesses and ministries will be made to dance to the government’s tune. We’ve all seen examples of photographers, bakeries and florists being required to serve at gay weddings, on penalty of closure or bankruptcy. This kind of legal oppression is coming all across the nation.
3. Christian colleges may be unable to teach scriptural views of marriage. Any nonprofit Christian organization that opposes same-sex unions, including our own, will likely lose its tax-exempt status. Many will be forced to close their doors.
In an interview with a West Virginia radio program on Thursday, conservative commentator and American Civil Rights Union senior fellow Robert Knight claimed that President Obama is encouraging undocumented immigrants to vote and “trying to replace the American electorate with illegal aliens who are easily bribed with federal welfare.”
Complaining about what he sees as ineffective GOP leadership in Congress, Knight told talk radio host Tom Roten, “The Democrats don’t operate like that. They play guerilla warfare and they win, they do whatever is necessary to win.”
“Right now, I think they’re trying to replace the American electorate with illegal aliens who are easily bribed with federal welfare,” he said. “I think that’s the game here. President Obama didn’t like what happened in 2010 and 2014 when there was a conservative wave that swept the country, and so he’s decided to replace the American voter with imported millions from Central and South America and from Mexico, and first get them on welfare so that they’re dependent on the government and then get them to vote for politicians who will raise taxes and expand government. That seems to be the plan for the next few years.”
“If it was just a matter of having some more voters who happen to be Hispanic, that’s no problem at all,” he said. “It’s the fact that they’re making voters out of illegals who have come to the country illegally, who are therefore vulnerable to deportation and they’re susceptible to bribes in the form of federal welfare, food stamps, you name it.”
Knight added that new immigrants don’t “understand or appreciate American exceptionalism or American liberty.”
Later in the interview, Knight discussed allegations by J. Christian Adams that a Department of Homeland Security initiative to help green-card holders work toward citizenship is actually a plot to increase the Democratic electorate before the 2016 election.
Claiming that this program for legal immigrants is a plan “to convert millions of illegal aliens into U.S. citizens and voters by 2016,” Knight warned, “Your tax dollars are working to basically create a new class of voters who will vote to seize more of your paycheck and exert more power over you and your family.”
“So this is how they steal the 2016 election?” Roten asked.
“Well, this is how they’re trying,” Knight responded.
National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown, saying that “the battle to preserve marriage is becoming a global one,” is soliciting "support" from his group’s members to fight a referendum for marriage equality in Ireland.
Brown sent an email to NOM supporters on Friday urging them not to believe the “slanted public opinion polls” showing overwhelming support for the marriage referendum. If Irish activists “can manage to pull off a victory, it will be a tremendous boost to the cause of marriage worldwide,” he wrote. Brown's email does not mention that only citizens or residents of Ireland can legally contribute directly to the anti-marriage campaign.
While we in the US have our eyes on the Supreme Court, the people of Ireland also are keenly engaged in the issue of redefining marriage. Interestingly, advocates for redefining marriage in America told the high Court that it's up to the justices to take this step because "fundamental rights" should not be left to popular vote.
Yet in Ireland, same-sex 'marriage' activists have done just that — pushed a national referendum that would redefine marriage. Apparently "principle" is a flexible concept that can be molded to suit the objectives of gay and lesbian activists depending on the circumstances.
In approximately three weeks (May 22nd) the people of Ireland will vote on whether to permit same-sex marriage in their Constitution. The No (i.e. pro-marriage) campaign is receiving significant abuse and needs your help.
Will you please do four things today:
1. Visit their campaign site and support them at www.keepmarriage.org.
2. Visit their Facebook page and join them in defending marriage.
3. Visit their Youtube page and like their videos.
4. Share this mail with your friends and encourage them to follow your example!
Increasingly the battle to preserve marriage is becoming a global one. While the Obama administration aggressively ties American foreign policy (to the extent they have a foreign policy) to advancing the gay agenda worldwide, most countries in the world strongly are opposed to redefining marriage. In fact, only 17 out of the 196 countries in the world recognize same-sex 'marriage;' less than ten percent of the total and almost all in the west. The rest resist.
Just like in campaigns for marriage here in America, slanted public opinion polls become fodder to influence the public and depress supporters of marriage. This is happening in Ireland. If they can manage to pull off a victory, it will be a tremendous boost to the cause of marriage worldwide. Please do what you can to bring awareness to their efforts.
When President Obama isn’t secretly ordering riots in Baltimore from the Oval Office, he is plotting a military coup through the Jade Helm 15 drill and a bullet ban through the EPA. Quite a week for our “apathetic,” “ lazy” president.
During an appearance today on “The Sam Malone Show,” Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., appeared to blame the recent demonstrations in Baltimore on Big Government, the breakdown of the family in the black community and the failure of parents to instill American values in their children.
“This is turning into anarchy and you have people doing things that are absolutely horrible and then saying, ‘oh it was just because I wasn’t given a chance,’ oh my God, give me a break,” Kelly said, before accusing liberals of keeping people in poverty and reliant on government services.
Malone added that such violence would never take place in Texas, because everyone is armed.
Conservative commentator Robert Knight is not optimistic about the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision in a set of marriage equality cases, telling a West Virginia radio program yesterday that “unless God intervenes, the court looks poised to create a brand-new right to gay marriage out of the Constitution, which is just literally insane and absurd.”
Knight was particularly annoyed by Justice Kennedy’s comments about marriage conferring “dignity” and “ennoblement” to gay couples. “I was thinking about that,” he told Huntington-based talk radio host Tom Roten, “and I thought, the way you’re doing that is by stealing the moral capital of marriage and conveying it to other relationships that aren’t anything like it. That is not ennobling them, that is transferring moral capital.”
“It’s like taking a losing team, and they feel bad about their losing record,” he explained, “so they say, okay, now they’re going to have the same record as this winning team over here so everybody feels better.”
Knight was also upset that the only children discussed during the Supreme Court arguments were children being raised by gay parents. “What about the vast impact on children across America if gay marriage is legalized?” he asked. “Think of the textbook changes. Think of what schools will be teaching directly against the beliefs of millions of American parents. I mean, we’re putting a counterfeit in the law, we’re going to use the law to impose it on the country.”
Although the attorneys arguing on behalf of marriage equality at the court explicitly noted that clergy in marriage equality states are not required to marry same-sex couples, Knight falsely claimed that Solicitor General Donald Verrilli had said that question should be left to the states.
“Think in the free country of ours, they’re casually talking about using the power of the state to force pastors to bless something that the Bible says is an abomination,” he said. “We are really in an insane age here when it’s come to that. And unless the American people rise up and say ‘enough,’ it’s just going to get worse.”
Lopez, who is openly bisexual but opposes marriage equality in part because he contends he was injured by growing up with a lesbian mother, compares people who give positive accounts of being raised by gay parents to “happy Japanese-Americans” who “were actually exceedingly harsh, even cruel, to the Japanese-Americans who defied the government and tried to resist internment.”
But, he writes, by 2030 “you won’t have to worry about PFLAG’s wunderkinder. It’s the others you will have to worry about, because there will be a lot of them, and like the Japanese-Americans who came around to contesting what Roosevelt did to them, they will be organized and demanding to be repaid for what was taken from them: gender diversity, gender equality at home, their heritage, their legacy, their identity.”
Lopez takes particular aim at the plaintiffs in DeBoer vs. Snyder, one of the marriage cases being considered by the Supreme Court, a lesbian couple who are fighting for custody rights for each other’s adopted children. “The DeBoer v. Snyder case insists that children should be subject to the parental authority of gay adults who are sleeping with one of their parents, rather than the authority of their father and mother,” he writes.
“Should DeBoer end with a gay SCOTUS victory,” he warns, “birth parents will be given cold comfort if the children they consign to adoption end up playing Cinderella to gay stepparents.”
Over time, there is no doubt that there will be at least 100,000 citizens, probably well over 500,000, placed into same-sex homes entirely or predominantly because of the state’s response to demands for expanded marriage rights from gay lobbying organizations.
These citizens will not have chosen to be deprived of a parent of one gender and subjected to the authority of an additional guardian of the other gender – these are citizens for whom the choice will have been made by the government (a government run by an older generation), when they were infants, or not even born yet, and had no way to consent to or understand what was being done to them.
A sizable number of these citizens could come together and document losses, damages, or “pain and suffering” incurred because they were forced to grow up in a same-sex parenting home as opposed to a home with a mother and father. (Picture how “pain and suffering” was just used by a lesbian couple to levy a $135,000 fine on Sweet Cakes by Melissa.) If so, there will be grounds for later Congresses, Supreme Courts, and presidential administrations – ones that aren’t as cowed by the gay lobby as our current leaders – to go back and investigate how gay marriage passed, how it led to depriving children of a mother or father, and who has to pay up.
COLAGE’s and PFLAG’s poster children are well-spoken and probably good-hearted people. Bless them. But if you read John Okada’s No-No Boy, you will find that most Japanese-Americans whose families were interned opted to serve in the United States military. These happy Japanese-Americans were actually exceedingly harsh, even cruel, to the Japanese-Americans who defied the government and tried to resist internment. There are always some people – often a seeming majority – among an aggrieved group who say they have no grievances; they usually say the complainers are crazy, bitter, wrong, or un-American.
In 2030, you won’t have to worry about PFLAG’s wunderkinder. It’s the others you will have to worry about, because there will be a lot of them, and like the Japanese-Americans who came around to contesting what Roosevelt did to them, they will be organized and demanding to be repaid for what was taken from them: gender diversity, gender equality at home, their heritage, their legacy, their identity.
Whatever the numbers of kids being raised in gay homes might be right now, with the rise of gay marriage, there was a rise in kids being raised by gay couples. Those responsible for gay marriage will be responsible for thousands upon thousands of individual children who would not have been raised by same-sex couples were it not for actions taken by the government.
The DeBoer v. Snyder case insists that children should be subject to the parental authority of gay adults who are sleeping with one of their parents, rather than the authority of their father and mother. In many adoption cases likely to be affected by this scenario, the birth parents decided to surrender custody to an individual without knowing or agreeing to the fact that the individual would get into a gay relationship and then place the child under the gay lover’s power, too. Should DeBoer end with a gay SCOTUS victory, birth parents will be given cold comfort if the children they consign to adoption end up playing Cinderella to gay stepparents.
But on an even more basic level, if the Supreme Court sides with Ms. DeBoer, they will be giving gay adults the right to force children to grow up without something that the vast majority of their peers have: a mother and father. On top of that will be added the problem of denying citizens their heritage. If this ends in a reparations trial decades down the line, we can’t say there weren’t ample warning signs of what was to come.
When Wiles asked her whether she believed that the Obama administration wants to “deliberately flood America with Muslims to tip the balance of power in this country towards Islam,” Corcoran readily agreed: “Yes, I think it is.” She said that Muslims only need to be about 10 percent of the population in order to introduce Sharia law, which she said is occurring throughout Europe. She added: “The writing is on the wall for us, we really do need to stop this Muslim — we need to have a moratorium on Muslim immigration to America.”
“Barack Obama promised to transform America and he’s doing it,” Wiles said. “He’s the only politician I’ve seen in my lifetime who has carried out his campaign promises and he promised to transform the country and he has done a great deal of harm to this nation and he has more on the way.”
He went on to say that Obama is working with George Soros to “break down the Western Christian culture” and “destroy everting about the identity of those nations, whether it’s the United States or Canada, Great Britain, France, the Netherlands, if it’s a Western, Christianized nation, they are doing everting possible to break down that civilization, that society, in order to have a one-world system. That is the main goal, that is where they are taking this thing so they have to mix up the populations all over the world to break it down.”
“Right. They are changing America by changing the people, they are literally swapping out the people,” Corcoran replied.
