Last week, Rick Wiles aired his “Trunews” radio show from a Donald Trump rally in Kissimmee, Florida, where he praised the GOP presidential nominee for his false claim that President Obama and Hillary Clinton founded the terrorist group ISIS.
On Friday’s edition of “Trunews” with Rick Wiles, Georgia pastor Benjamin Faircloth claimed that if elected, Hillary Clinton “would have no problem setting this nation on fire” and would attempt to expand her authority just as Turkish President Recep Erdoğan has consolidated power following an attempted coup.
“Turkey, what’s happening there, Pastor Rick, is going to happen here in America,” Faircloth said, arguing that Erdoğan staged the coup in order “to take total control, if you will, and be a dictator over that nation.”
“To me, what it does is it shows us a parallel, it shows us an overlay, it shows us what’s coming to this nation,” Faircloth said. “If they can’t win by the ballot box, if they can’t win by, you know, fair, free elections, there is no doubt in my mind that same scare, that same type of entity here in America will pull the trigger and destroy this nation. If they can’t do it the way they wanna do it, I think that they will pull the trigger.”
“They want to shut you up,” Faircloth continued. “They’re ready to shut you up. They’re ready to shut all of us up, and when Hillary becomes president, that’s gonna be one of their main goals. You have to silence those who are in opposition of you, and that’s exactly what’s happening in Turkey right now.”
“If Hillary Clinton wins the White House, what you think the spiritual and political climate will be in this country?” Wiles asked.
“Well, first of all, Pastor, is how does she get in?” Faircloth responded. “If she gets in by just rigging the election and everything seems to be, you know, somewhat peaceful, I think she could stretch this thing out, but if it’s in anarchy, if it’s in complete chaos already, there’s no telling what’s in her heart. I think her heart is black, I think it’s evil.”
Faircloth claimed that when Clinton talked about the American Revolution during her Democratic National Convention speech, he “saw a change in her face.”
“I saw a change in her old demeanor and attitude, and I think that she would have no problem setting this nation on fire to get their goals completed,” Faircloth said.
Wiles alleged that Clinton wants a second revolution in the U.S., this time against Christianity.
“What she’s saying is we have reached a point where we can eradicate the old America that started after the first revolution,” Wiles said.
It is sad to see Dinesh D’Souza, once considered by many to be a “conservative intellectual,” continue to drift to the far-right fringe. In yet the latest example of this, D'Souza appeared yesterday on Alex Jones’ bizarre conspiracy theory program to discuss his new film on Hillary Clinton.
D’Souza, who claims that Clinton is trying to “steal America,” apparently forgot about the American principle of the right to be represented by an attorney, as he criticized Clinton for representing an alleged rapist in a 1975 trial while she was working as a lawyer in Arkansas.
Referring to an audio recording of Clinton discussing the trial, D’Souza misrepresented Clinton’s remarks and even said he heard “the voice of evil" in the tape.
“And for me, it’s knowing about how psychopaths and sociopaths are,” Jones added. “They have this real self, but everything else is like fake to manipulate. When she goes to California and speaks to Latino groups, she puts on this fake Latino voice. When she goes to Kentucky, she goes, ‘How you doin’ there, boy,’ like she’s, you know, Grandma Clampett getting some possum grits. I mean, it’s like I wouldn’t hang around with anybody that when they got around different groups, talked a different way. I mean, it is bizarre to show that that’s what psychopaths do – and I think she’s a psychopath, I think she’s a full-blown psychopath – is that they do feel this need to just put on these fake acts. It’s very creepy.”
“I think so,” D’Souza added. “And I think she might even have gotten some of this from Bill, because Bill is the master of it.”
D’Souza continued, “People have heard, ‘I did not have sex with that woman,’ but what they actually haven’t heard is you go back and play the old tapes where Bill and Hillary were both confronted with all this stuff and the kind of silky nonsense they put out there, at one point, I think it was Steve Kroft says to the Clintons, ‘Well, you know, I think Americans can kind of accept that you guys, whatever your problems, you’ve worked it out, you’ve made some kind of arrangement, and then Bill jumps in. He goes, ‘Arrangement? We don’t have an arrangement, we love each other. We have a marriage. It’s totally different.’”
Jones interjected: “Yeah, she’s not banging three chicks a day like me too.”
Later, Jones defended Roger Ailes against reports that Megyn Kelly said he had sexually harassed her, claiming that Kelly has “Jezebelian energy” and is secretly “an agent for the Clintons.”
“Well, that’s why Megyn Kelly – I don’t want to get off on a jag – I’ve watched her, I see her on that sinister power trip, it’s that Jezebelian energy, and, you know, Roger Ailes made her who she is,” Jones said. “To see her say, ‘He hugged me once too hard and I want him taken out,’ and I know, because I have the inside baseball, it is from the Clintons, there are talking points, people are being threatened, I’ve talked to the host. And it’s like wow, she really is an agent of the Clintons and all that stuff with Trump and it’s like seeing her join with evil, now, this is a thousand times worse with Hillary, obviously, but it’s just, it’s the creepiness. It’s the dishonor of it. It’s the sliminess that really tells you what we’re dealing with is a bunch of evil people.”
Although Jones said he lacks the energy to control other people, “these evil people” like the Clintons “enjoy… running other people’s lives, knowing what you’re doing, controlling you, ruining you, just because they’re quite frankly jealous of you, and they’re jealous of America, they’re jealous of free market, they’re jealous of open, free societies, compared to everything else, not saying we’re perfect. It’s like what you said in your first film, they want mount our head on the wall.”
Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman, who is currently suing President Obama for endangering his life as a white man, claimed this week that the “Muslim-in-chief” Obama treats white people as “inferior” because he wants “payback” for discrimination. Klayman told “Trunews” host Rick Wiles on Wednesday that while in the 1960s people of all races loved Motown music, that racial harmony was ruined by Obama.
“President Obama — who I call, actually, the Muslim-in-chief — favors his own people over other people,” Klayman said. “We deserve to be treated equally. I’m, in effect, a civil rights lawyer. I was on Fox News yesterday about that, the business channel, and I just pointed out that everybody needs to be represented by our president, not just blacks, not just Muslims, and not just black Muslims.”
Klayman claimed that Obama has “systematically … tried to fan the flames of racial hatred and division. The president has a problem. He is an angry man. He has done everything in his administration, whether it’s with regard to egging on violence against white police officers or whites in general to, in effect, have people, not of color but white people and others, pay reparations for what he saw as years of discrimination.”
“We don’t condone the discrimination of the past,” Klayman said, “we want to resolve it. And that’s exactly what Martin Luther King started to do back in the 1960s: judge people on the content of their character, not on their color; peaceful nonviolence, not like Black Lives Matter, but bringing about change and having the races respect each other and appreciate each other. You know, we all grew up [with] Motown Sound, we loved the Temptations, we loved the Supremes, you know. Why couldn’t that continue? Obama didn’t want it to continue.”
“Obama was raised as a Muslim,” Klayman continued. “Obama is taught to hate Christians and Jews. Obama does not accept the fact that this country should include everybody and he wants payback.”
“We just can’t take it anymore,” Klayman said of white Americans. “We’re equal to African-Americans, we’re not inferior, and Obama has treated us as if we are inferior in the last many years. I mean, overtaxing, Obamacare, destroying the entire healthcare system to take care of a few, executive amnesty, which brings in a lot of illegal aliens that commit crimes, a lot of them across the Mexican border, even Muslim terrorists, they’re being left in this country, bringing in people from Syria, everything else. It’s all part of his plan. It’s his clever caliphate, basically, to turn this country into, you know, something like his Middle Eastern brothers would have, and I hate to say that and it sounds extreme, but it’s gotten worse and worse.”
On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” host Rick Wiles continued his condemnation of the “Pokémon demons” inhabiting the game Pokémon Go, claiming that the game “could be used for the elimination of Christians” by showing players where Christians live. He predicted an onslaught of crime akin to the “The Purge: Election Year” movie.
“Churches are the number one sites on the app that are containing these Pokémon demons that people are trying to find,” Wiles said. “The number one site on the app are churches. So, if they are creating a technology that could be used for the elimination of Christians, here are the churches, here are the homes of the pastor, the elders, the Sunday school teachers.”
Wiles continued, “This movie, this ‘Purge: Election Year,’ are they preparing the minds of young people for a day of rage? I mean, we now, we have Anonymous calling for a day of rage. Are they whipping up this bloodlust, hoping that they can ignite it, they can get this fuse burning by October?”
“What do we do if Islamic leaders, radical, you know, Black Panther party leaders, all these whacked-out guys start saying, ‘We need a purge, we need a day of rage, we need a purge?’” Wiles asked.
“This is what the Lord told me in 1998 was coming,” Wiles claimed. “I saw a day of jihad, a day of bloodletting, that what the Lord showed me in ‘98 was pandemonium, people being killed, just innocent people being killed in their homes, being pulled out of their cars, being killed, people walking down the street, being slaughtered.”
On Monday, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles recounted a story about how he called the police after seeing a man taking photos of his office building, only to discover that the suspicious man was simply playing Pokémon Go on his phone.
Wiles, however, said that something sinister is afoot, warning that “these Pokémon creatures are like virtual, cyber-demons” and that “what this man, Friday, was trying to find was the Pokémon demon that had been placed inside the ‘Trunews’ office.”
“What if this technology is transferred to Islamic jihadists and Islamic jihadists have an app that shows them where Christians are located geographically?” he asked, noting that many of the app’s PokeStops and Gyms include churches and other houses of worship.
“The enemy, Satan, is targeting churches with virtual, digital, cyber-demons,” Wiles said, before adding: “I believe this thing is a magnet for demonic powers.”
Wiles went on to claim that “Pokémon masters” may soon start “telling people to kill people in those buildings” in order to catch more Pokémon, comparing the use of the App to Philando Castile’s girlfriend use of Facebook Live to live stream the aftermath of Castile’s shooting by a police officer, which he said might have been staged.
“They’re spawning demons inside your church,” Wiles said. “They’re targeting your church with demonic activity.” He then again warned that “this technology will be used by the enemies of the cross to target, locate and execute Christians.”
Jeffress took issue with evangelical leaders who refuse to support the presumptive GOP nominee, boasting that Trump will shift the courts to the right and work to overturn abortion rights.
“This is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats,” Jeffress said. “It’s a battle between good and evil, righteousness and unrighteousness, light and darkness, and I think it is time for people who say they are conservative Christians to get off the fence and go to the polls and vote their convictions.”
A fiery Jeffress dismissed those who have moral objections to supporting Trump, saying that these “weak and namby-pamby” holdouts are too “proud” and “can’t get over the fact that their candidate didn’t win” in the Republican primary.
Jeffress said that unlike President Obama, who he said “hates” conservative Christians, Trump will be a “true friend in the White House” and “appoint conservative justices to the Supreme Court.”
“This isn’t about partisan politics,” he said. “This is about good and evil.”
According to Jeffress, Trump told a group of Religious Right leaders that America is in decline “because of people like you all around this table, you’re the ones who have allowed the country to get into the shape that it’s in.” “And he was absolutely right about it,” Jeffress added.
Both Jeffress and Wiles were among the 1,000 Religious Right leaders who met with Trump in New York last week.
Wiles said he was blown away by Trump’s appearance, hailing him as “a very humble man” and “very presidential.”
“He talked and acted like a president,” he said. “Very respectful, very thoughtful. I, quite frankly, was very impressed by him as a person, as a man.
Wiles added that Trump came across as a “calm, respectful, very professional CEO.”
“I believe that I saw the next president of the United States,” he said. “I think Donald Trump is going to be very, very friendly to the evangelical Christian community of the United States of America. I’m coming back with a different perspective about Donald Trump. I didn’t have a negative perspective to start with but I’m seeing him today in a much better light.”
On his “Trunews” radio program on Monday, after declaring that the Orlando massacre represented God’s judgment on America, Rick Wiles said that the U.S. government should “outlaw Islam” and “confiscate Muslims.”
“The left is calling for gun control. What we need is Muslim control. We don’t need to confiscate guns, we need to confiscate Muslims. You’re not going to solve this problem until you round up the Muslims and ship them out of this country. End of discussion. Outlaw Islam. Make it an illegal religion. Don’t tell me it can’t be done. Pass a constitutional amendment that says we’re a Christian nation and Islam is illegal. Done. Get rid of it. Stamp it out before it destroys civilization.”
“Anyone who is a practicing Muslim is mentally ill,” he added, before claiming that the U.S. government is bringing terrorists into the country. “We’re all going to die, gay and straight, left and right, Republican and Democrat, we’re all going to die if we don’t get this stopped really soon.”
“I took that as Donald Trump was insinuating that the American people must now consider the possibility that Obama has a hidden, nefarious plan underway which is covering for all of these Muslims coming into the country,” he said. “I think he got very close to it today…. When you said that this morning, Mr. Trump, you were extremely close to nailing it, what this really is, that we have an Islamic jihadist in the White House.”
He also claimed that the Obama administration “hired Omar Mateen,” the Orlando shooter, to work for a security company that contracts with the government. (Mateen secured the job in 2007, two years before Obama took office).
Wiles concluded: “If there’s a Muslim living in your town, there’s a high probability you have a jihadist cell in your town.”
On Monday, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles said that the terrorist attack at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando represented the judgment of God on America.
He said that more terrorist attacks are coming to the U.S. because America’s security apparatus has been “infiltrated” by terrorists and “we have a Muslim jihadist in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama, a jihadist.”
“God has been crying out to this nation: Either voluntarily humble yourselves to your knees and call upon me to protect your or continue in your rebellion and be brought to your knees by your enemies,” he said. “But either way, America, you’re going to your knees. I’ve said for years, America, if you continue to reject the mercy of the cross, you will live by the tyranny of the sword, and that’s what’s happening right now.”
Former Major League Baseball player Curt Schilling, who was recently fired from his ESPN analyst position for a transphobic Facebook post, joined conservative radio host Rick Wiles on his show on May 18, where he attacked ESPN and its parent company, Disney, claiming that his firing was just another case of white Christians being marginalized in America.
“I don’t want to sound like a victim because I’m not trying to sound like a victim but I think the only thing people now acknowledge publicly is that it’s okay to infringe upon or talk down on white Christians,” Schilling said.
“We all knew this was coming,” he continued. “The Scripture’s pretty clear on what’s gonna happen with us, to us, and about us in, you know, many parts of the Bible.”
Schilling then criticized ESPN and Disney for their supposed bigotry against him.
“Here’s the thing that got me: When I got fired, there was a very quick, small press release stating that ESPN and the Disney company are an inclusive company and apparently the things I said were not inclusive,” he said. “They’re exactly the opposite. They’re as exclusive and bigoted as you can be because if you share a political viewpoint that isn’t left of center, you’re gonna get in trouble. If I would’ve compared the Tea Party to ISIS, I would’ve been fine. If I would’ve talked about the Black Lives Matter movement, I would’ve been fine, because they do that every day… I always kind of like to know where the enemy is and who they are, and they’ve made themselves out to be exactly that.”
Wiles agreed, claiming, “Disney is a radical, politically radical company and very anti-Christian. Everything Disney does is anti-Christian.”
“Poor old Walt would pull his hair out if he knew what was happening right now with the company that he founded,” Wiles said.
“It never would’ve happened if he’d been around,” Schilling claimed, again calling the left “intolerant” and “bigoted.”
“And they want to call the rest of the world the very things that they are,” Schilling said. “It almost feels like a game. It’s like the KKK coming out and saying, ‘You know what, you’re a racist.’”
After Wiles called the left “mentally ill,” the two discussed the upcoming election. Regarding Hillary Clinton, Schilling said, “The leading Democratic candidate for president of the United States is one of the most evil, lying, manipulating, fraudulent, felonious politicians. The Clinton name is as corrupt as anything I’ve ever, ever seen and been around.”
“The only positive I’ve seen in this administration is the sale of firearms has gone through the roof in the last seven and a half years because law-abiding citizens are arming themselves to protect themselves from what feels to be every bit that the tyrannical government, the Second Amendment was created to protect us against," Schilling said.
Wiles claimed that “the left is pushing us towards civil war and they don’t realize we have all the guns.”
“The left is pushing a civil war that they would never fight,” Schilling said. “They don’t have the guts to stand up.” He then claimed the left wants the government to fight in the civil war for them, as, unlike conservatives, “they want the government to do everything for them.”
In fact, the GOP official said, “women and children” were the ones “being discriminated against” under LGBT rights ordinances like the one passed by the city of Charlotte, which was voided by the new state law.
He said that such measures were approved because “we have a lack of moral compass in our country right now, we’ve taken our eyes off God in America, we have turned our back on God, we have forgotten God in a lot of ways, so the moral compass is broken here.”
Forest went on to say that anti-LGBT laws like North Carolina’s only “discriminate against behavior, not against people,” comparing them to traffic laws: “If I want to go out and drive 95 miles an hour down the interstate in North Carolina because I feel like doing that, I don’t have the right to do that. It doesn’t mean the law is discriminating against me, it’s discriminating against my behavior of wanting to drive 95.”
Naturally, Forest went on to blame the controversy over the law on the media.
Yesterday on his “Trunews” program, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles discussed topics ranging from LGBT pride month to a Christian youth pastor dressing up like the Times Square Naked Cowboy, concluding that America must be on the verge of “being obliterated.”
“We are watching a nation lose its mind and go insane,” he said. “Every strata of society has gone insane. That’s because they’ve rejected God.”
These “lunatics” running society, Wiles added, are going to marginalize, “round up” and “exterminate” conservative Christians.
“Trunews” host Rick Wiles lit into the Obama administration (or, as he calls it, “the command center of the Obama homosexual revolution”) on Monday over its letter on facility access for transgender students in public schools.
Wiles predicted that most parents and school officials will “cave” and “sacrifice their children at the altar of sexual perversion,” while those who protest will be “beaten in the streets with batons” and “hosed down with firehoses.”
“I’m going to tell you where I think we’re going: civil war,” he said. “I believe this is the opening shot from Obama for civil war.”
He added: “I’m not calling for violence. I’m calling for massive civil disobedience. Shut down the system. My God, what do we have to do? They’re coming after your innocent children! Just when do you get off of your fat rear end and do something? I’m so sick and tired of these cowards in the churches. Lazy, worthless cowards! They’re coming for your children! They’re coming right into your schools to pervert your children!”
This led Wiles to go on a birther-tinged rant about how President Obama (and Satan) intend to “rape your children”:
We’re living in a funhouse. In a house of horrors. The president — the fake president, he’s a fake president, he’s not a legitimate American president, he’s a fake and he’s been allowed to do these wicked things for eight years because there’s been no resistance to him, and now he’s going for it, he’s got the pedal to the metal. He’s coming into the schools to rape your children. Let’s be honest about it. Satan wants to rape your children. I’m telling you, there’s going to be confrontation in the country. There will be a group of people who just say, 'This is it, I’m done, at this point, we resist and we’re pushing back.'
The End Times broadcaster said that Americans should take a page from our colonial ancestors and rise up and “abolish the federal government, completely abolish it and to start over.”
Wiles said that parents who don’t withdraw their children from public schools are jeopardizing their salvation and don’t truly love them: “You are abusing your child by forcing that little child to go to a school that is that perverse and wicked. That argument ended decades ago. There is no justification as of today to have a Christian child in a public school. Satan is in the school system now. The federal government took God out decades ago; Satan is now inside the school system.”
God, according to Wiles, is now preparing to judge America … possibly through nuclear destruction.
“An economic crash in America is the best thing that could happen in this country,” he said, “it is the best thing that could happen right now short of nuclear war. An economic crash would be God’s mercy to us, giving us a chance to throw off this wickedness because that would be the last stage before a nuclear war that burns this filth off the face of the earth.”
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
Classic conspiracy theories like the supposed threats of Chemtrails and Agenda 21 reemerged this week, along with some new ones, such as the possibility of a nuclear war with Russia sparked by Target’s new trans-inclusive policies. All that and more this week on Paranoia-Rama:
5) October Surprise
On Wednesday, Donald Trump’s confidant Roger Stone appeared on Alex Jones’ conspiracy theory radio show, where Jones and a caller asked if “the establishment” could pull off a stunt — such as deliberately crashing the economy or faking an attempt on President Obama’s life — to postpone the election in a last-ditch effort to stop Trump.
Stone, naturally, agreed with their fears: “I think they’re capable of anything, including martial law.”
Jones said nefarious actors may try to thwart Trump because they know he is a candidate who “unites us all.”
“What would you be doing if you were them?” he asked Stone.
Stone replied: “Well, they could stage an international incident in which everybody has to rally around the president and then use that as a pretext to cancel the election.”
While Jones is worried about the prospect of an anti-Trump October surprise, he was delighted to read Chuck Norris’ latest column about chemtrails.
“How many plane-dropping chemical cocktails have already been sprayed around the world in the name of securing public health?” he asked, wondering if the government is using planes to conduct “mass vaccinations or some other devious plot.”
“It’s time again to wake up, America.”
3) Nuclear War
Conservatives aren’t only blaming transgender people for sexual assaults and rape — at least one far-right commentator is claiming that they might be the cause of a nuclear war.
“Doc, God is going to use the Russians to bring down Sodom and Gomorrah if there’s no repentance in this land,” he told his co-host Doc Burkhart. “Listen, these freaks are going to get us all killed. They’re going to get us all killed.”
One Montana newspaper reported that Happel believes that Agenda 21 will “involve relocating most Montanans to some large city, like Seattle, where they would be housed like sardines in compact housing developments, deprived of automobiles, and basically held hostage to some job in the city. Meanwhile vast areas of land would be reclaimed for wilderness to be used by the rich oligarchy.”
1)Ted Cruz or Disaster
Glenn Beck, the supposed author of the dystopian thriller “Agenda 21,” is such a big fan of Cruz that he told his viewers this week that if the Texas senator doesn’t win the presidency, it means lights out for America.
Joel Gilbert, the right-wing filmmaker who promotes the alternative birther theory that President Obama’s “real father” was labor activist Frank Marshall Davis, joined far-right radio host Rick Wiles on his “Trunews” program on Monday to discuss what Wiles called the “cultural cleansing” taking place with the removal of President Andrew Jackson from the front of the $20 bill.
Gilbert said that the decision to feature Harriet Tubman on the front of the $20 bill and move Jackson to the back and the efforts to take down the Confederate flag from government grounds are both part of the liberal effort to “change everything and pretty much apologize and condemn the greatness of America and the history and judge it according to current value standards of the media and condemn American history, apologize for American history and then cover it up.”
“The leftists are not different from the Islamists,” he continued. “Don’t forget the Islamists, when Islam burst out of Arabia in the sixth century, seventh century, they came to Jerusalem, they renamed it al-Quds. Several centuries later, they took over the Christian city of Constantinople. Now it’s called Istanbul.”
“This is a way of changing the history to accommodate the new ideology in town,” he said, “and changing the currency to wipe out the founding fathers from our consciousness, their principles and their ideals that created a nation of individual free markets and free speech, that is a way to achieve their long-term goals.”
Far-right radio host Rick Wiles devoted the first half of his “Trunews” program on Monday to railing against Target’s policy of allowing transgender people to use the restroom that matches their gender identity, warning that the retail chain’s bathroom policy has helped turn America into Sodom and Gomorrah, which God will now destroy through a nuclear war with Russia.
After reading from a statement about the bathroom policy from Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder, Wiles bellowed, “How about if I just urinate on your floor? How about that, Molly? Because you’re defecating on this nation.”
He said that the restroom policy and Target’s decision last year to stop putting gender-specific signage on kids’ toys are both part of a “revolution” being carried out by modern-day Nazis.
“Our minds are being captured, Doc, by perverts,” he told his co-host Doc Burkhart. “This is what happened in Germany. The Nazis were perverts. They took over Germany. It was a radical, socialist, homosexual movement called the Nazi Socialist Party. They’re now in control of America, and sane people better rise up and oppose it quickly. This is just the beginning.”
“It’s either shut down Target or their type is going to shut down this nation, because there’s no end to their insanity and their immorality and their wickedness,” Wiles declared later in the program.
“Doc, God is going to use the Russians to bring down Sodom and Gomorrah if there’s no repentance in this land,” he said. “Listen, these freaks are going to get us all killed. They’re going to get us all killed.”
“When there is a nuclear war, we all die,” he explained. “Now, those of us who are saved are going to go home to be with the Lord. Those who are unsaved are going to burn in hell. But we’re all going to die in a nuclear war thanks to the sodomites that are in control of this nation right now.”
“Show me one country in history that has gone down this road and survived,” he said. “There’s not one example. There’s not one example in thousands of years of human history of a nation turning from God and becoming a sodomite nation and then going on to be great. Not one nation.”
A few years ago, speaking in a panel discussion alongside Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., anti-Muslim activist Robert Spencer declared that it doesn’t matter if President Obama is secretly a Muslim because “if he were a secret Muslim, he wouldn’t be acting any differently.” (Franks agreed.)
Obama’s personal faith and allegiances are still apparently an open question to Spencer, who told far-right radio host Rick Wiles earlier this month that he couldn’t “argue against” Wiles’ assertion that Obama is a “jihadist.”
Spencer told Wiles that although he’s “not one of those given to conspiracy theories or thinking he’s a secret Muslim,” he does think that the president’s “upbringing” has given him a “very warmly positive view of Islam” to the point where he just might not care about “the jihad against the United States.”
“You’ve got to wonder,” he said, “does Barack Obama have, perhaps from his youth and his father and his stepfather, a very warmly positive view of Islam? I’m not one of those given to conspiracy theories or thinking that he’s secretly a Muslim, but I think that he has a very positive view of Islam, he thinks that Islam is good for societies, good for individuals, and perhaps that does come from his upbringing. And he clearly thinks that if he gives the various entities in the Islamic world what they want, that they somehow perhaps lessen the force of the jihad against the United States, or maybe he doesn’t even care about that.”
Wiles was having none of this vagueness, and declared that in his view Obama is more than just “a closet Muslim” and is in fact “a jihadist agent” who is “carrying out jihad against the United States of America.”
“I can’t argue against that,” Spencer responded. “I wouldn’t have a lot of evidence to go by, and that’s the disturbing thing.”
“If the president of the United States, if action after action and policy after policy assisted the Mafia, would, after seven years, would you conclude that he’s a Mafia agent?” Wiles asked.
“The difficulty here,” Spencer responded, “is that this is the president of the United States and it’s still very difficult to conceive of a betrayal on that scale, but if anyone has made it possible — made it, indeed, necessary — to consider that very seriously, it’s Barack Obama.”
