RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
The conservative persecution drumbeat has been in full-force this week, with new predictions about Nazism coming to America and looming gay oppression. But maybe we will all be spared such atrocities if President Obama manages to give us all Ebola first.
5) Nazism Around The Corner
After making a “documentary” likening the state of freedom in the U.S. to Germany right before the Nazi takeover, Rick Santorum is at least now owning up to his film’s claims.
While speaking with the Christian Post this week, the former Republican presidential candidate offered Nazi Germany as an example of how a country loses religious freedom, warning that “if we continue down this path” then Nazi-style violent persecution will come to America.
4) Gay Rights Supporters Will ‘Throw You In Jail’
Dave Daubenmire wants to know why conservatives haven’t spoken out against “lesbianism and the frontal assault on Christianity the homosexuals have been engaged in for the last three decades,” adding that now “the barn door can no longer be closed. The homosexuals own the barn.”
Pointing to the case in Houston where a group of pastors faced subpoenas (which have since been withdrawn) as part of a lawsuit against the city for invalidating petitions challenging a nondiscrimination ordinance, Daubenmire lamented that “our nation is about to be overrun by the enemies of God.”
“They are coming for your churches,” he writes. “They are going to make you marry homosexuals. They are going to throw you in jail and seize your church if you don't. The devil and his kids do not play fair...they play dirty.”
3) ‘Sodomite’ Slavery
“Trunews” host Rick Wiles knows for a fact that “we’ve been taken over by homosexuals and sodomites, and lesbians and transvestites, and a bunch of communists and socialists and atheists and God-haters,” and as a result, Wiles fears, “this country is about to be judged.”
And the End Times broadcaster has even more bad news: those who survive the divine punishment of America “will be slaves” of the gay government: “That is the future that is facing America if this country does not repent and the time is ticking away.”
2) Maybe Obama Wants Us To Contract Ebola
Wiles’ fringe views, it turns out, are apparently acceptable among certain GOP members of Congress.
Rep. Steve Stockman, a Republican from Texas, stopped by “Trunews” recently to warn that Obama may sabotage the American response to the Ebola outbreak in order to allow the government to use the ensuing crisis “to advance their philosophy and their agenda” and “take control of the economy and individuals and so forth.”
This week, Rep. Paul Broun voiced similar concerns in an interview with Wiles.
The Georgia Republican told Wiles that Obama may have a “purposeful” plan to make more Americans contract Ebola, and he even entertained Wiles’ prediction that the White House will put foreigners with Ebola in VA hospitals.
Broun, not finished yet, speculated that the Obama administration’s following the advice of infectious disease experts in his handling of the Ebola crisis may stem from a “malicious intent” to harm Americans since “there is no logic whatsoever about why they are acting the way they are.”
1) ‘Rape Culture’ A Liberal Lie ‘To Get Votes’
Conservative radio talk show host Dennis Prager knows the truth about rape on college campus, and at a Republican rally this week Florida Gov. Rick Scott gave him the platform to share his discovery.
According to Prager, in remarks captured by Media Matters, feminists and their liberal allies have destroyed American culture with promiscuity, immorality and gender polarization. Liberals, Prager explained, even concocted the “lie [of] the culture of rape on your campuses” in order “to get votes.”
We look forward to Prager’s appearance in the next GOP rebranding memo.
