Pastors thrown in jail. Religious texts criminalized. Evangelism outlawed.
These are all events that Religious Right activists— inaccurately —predicted would happen during President Obama’s time in office. But sadly, these are acts that are all too common around the world.
Most recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin has stepped up his attacks on Christians who belong to denominations other than the Russian Orthodox Church, particularly Protestants, Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
But none of this has stopped Putin’s American fans from singing his praises, even while they claim that President Obama has made the U.S. dangerous for Christians.
Donald Trump and Mike Pence have enthusiasticallypraised Putin as a brilliant and mighty trailblazer while at the same time accusing President Obama of hounding Christians at home. In fact, Trump has claimed that the U.S. government is specifically targeting him with a tax audit because he’s “ a strong Christian .”
In reality, Putin’s government has done the very thing that right-wing activists falsely accuse President Obama of doing: arresting Christians, threatening churches and permitting Sharia law in majority-Muslim areas.
But it is Obama they falsely charge with being an enemy of religious liberty, and Putin they shower with praise in spite of his well-documented attacks on freedom.
The admiration for Putin from this segment of the Religious Right reveals an ugly reality behind their claims of religious oppression at the hands of the LGBT rights movement. For these activists, it seems, the persecution of LGBT people is actually more important than preserving true religious freedom, even when the welfare and freedoms of other Christians are at stake.
On Friday, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles thanked Donald Trump for taking on “the birth certificate issue” and urged him to “just leave the issue alone until January 20th” of next year, Inauguration Day, when the real investigation into the veracity of President Obama’s birth certificate can begin.
Wiles said that Trump should drop the issue of Obama’s birth certificate, which he said “is not even a good forgery, it’s a sloppy forgery,” until he takes office as president:
The forgery was so, so bad that we could spend hours just talking about how ludicrous it was. Here’s what Donald Trump can do. When he goes in the White House, he will have access to the White House server, right? Obama put his birth certificate—he put an image, not the birth certificate, he put an image of what he said was his birth certificate, he put it on the White House website. That is now government property. Barack Obama is not permitted to remove it from the White House website. That is U.S. government property.
So, if his birth certificate image disappears on January 20, 2017, that can only mean one thing: The Obamanistas cleaned the White House server to get that image off the server before the Trump people arrived. So, Mr. Obama, you just leave your fake birth certificate digital image on the White House website so that when Mr. Trump gets there, he can have an official verification of whether that is an authentic birth certificate. Just leave the issue alone until January 20th.
Trump, like Wiles, has repeatedlysuggested that Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery, a myth he continued to promote well after the president released a long-form copy of the document, despite recent claims to the contrary from Trump and his campaign.
Citing videos he viewed on the internet, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles on Friday suggested that Hillary Clinton is faking her campaign stops, claiming that in videos of the events, the images that appear on the attendees’ smartphones are not images of the rallies.
“She’s nowhere to be seen, the flags are not there, you can’t even distinguish what they are looking at, it’s nowhere to be seen on the stage,” he said. “Are they faking her personal appearances?”
Wiles also alleged that Clinton’s campaign sent out a body double to speak to the press outside of her daughter’s apartment after she had fallen ill at a September 11 memorial event: “I personally think it was a double. I don’t think Hillary passed out on the curb and then an hour or two later was walking around smiling and grinning. That just doesn’t happen in normal life.”
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.
On Friday’s episode of “Trunews” with Rick Wiles, WorldNetDaily’s Mychal Massie called Black Lives Matter a terrorist group that is “worse than the KKK.”
“I think that Black Lives Matter are worse than the KKK,” Massie said. “I believe them to be – they’re treated by this administration with the same kind of care, coddling, and warmness that the Obama administration shows toward the Islamic terrorists. And people say, ‘Well, how can you say they’re worse than the KKK?’ Well, they’re worse than the KKK because the KKK did not have a forum in all of the mainstream newspapers and media outlets to spew their hatred, but Black Lives Matter is given that forum. Black Lives Matter and their adherents are given a platform and legitimized to spew forth hatred under the guise that blacks have it so bad in America, so that makes them worse.
“And with respect to my comparison to them and the Islamic terrorists, when’s the last time CAIR came out and just denounced Islamic terrorism?” he continued. “They give left-handed condemnation, but at the same time, CAIR itself has been associated as a terrorist group, a terrorist-sponsoring group. And it’s the same with Black Lives Matter. When you have groups that are advocating for destruction, acrimony, and violence against other Americans, whether they be foreign or domestic, those are terrorist groups, and that is what Black Lives Matter is.”
Massie argued that the White House and Department of Justice should “do everything in the power of the government to take this group down.”
“Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General, is telling them, ‘We support you in your right to protest.’ Well, when have these people gathered peaceably? And we know that they’re calling for people to go to Cleveland for the Republican Convention and carry guns, so that’s an alchemy in and of itself for violence and bloodshed,” Massie said.
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.”
On “The Jim Bakker Show” on Tuesday, radio host Rick Wiles accused NATO of trying to provoke Russia into war, warning that another world war is imminent unless President Donald Trump unites the U.S. with Russia to “clobber the Muslims.”
“There’s a lot of military exercises taking place around the world,” Bakker said. “What do you think this means? Are we gearing up for a major war? Just say yes or no.”
“Yes,” Wiles responded. “Yes. Called NATO versus Russia. NATO has now put a military, a naval fleet in the Black Sea. You gotta look at a map, look at a geographical map of the Black Sea. When you see it, you understand the significance of it because it would be like Russia putting a naval fleet in the Great Lakes.”
“You wonder if the Russians are paranoid, nervous, and angry right now,” Wiles continued. “We’re pushing Russia to throw a punch, and the reason is the Western financial system is collapsing and the only way out of this thing is to start a world war and whoever survives the war is ruling the world.”
Wiles, a vocalsupporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said that “if we had a President Trump, I think he’d probably go to Moscow and say, ‘Hey, let’s just unite and go clobber the Muslims.’”
He even made the bogus claim that the U.S. is aiding ISIS: “We are ISIS in the Middle East. ”
On Friday, radio host Rick Wiles appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” to plug Bakker’s buckets of survival food by warning viewers that “demon-possessed” Muslims will soon target churches and that “a chemical gas attack” could kill tens of thousands this summer, leaving people to “stampede to buy this food” before the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA seize it.
“Muslims are not normal people, they’re demon-possessed,” Wiles said. “There’s no such thing as a moderate Muslim. There’s only backslidden Muslims. There are backslidden Muslims who aren’t reading the Quran. Once they get back into reading the Quran and becoming a practicing, devout Muslim, they become violent because Islam is a violent religion. So I don’t talk about moderate Muslims and radical Muslims, no. There’s just Muslims, and Islam has a history of blood. Everywhere it’s ever gone, bloodshed. They conquer with the sword. Name one country you would like to move to that’s dominated by Muslims. Every one of them is hell on earth. That’s what they want to bring here. They wanna conquer by the sword, they want to kill nonbelievers.”
“The churches are a target,” Wiles continued. “It’s very soon. Very soon. And, Jim, the remnant church is gonna go underground. We’re gonna meet in our homes, we’re gonna meet in secret places. You’re gonna have to discern who comes in because you’re bringing them into your home.”
Wiles, promoting Bakker’s products, told the audience that they “have very little time to buy food and supplies. Very little time. The window is going to close soon. We are one disaster from martial law. There are only four corporations in this country that produce this kind of food.”
“If there is an event this summer like a chemical gas attack where a vast amount of people are killed in the tens of thousands, the smart people will stampede to buy this food,” Wiles claimed. “The wealthy, the smart people, the people that know, ‘This is serious, I’ve gotta get all the supplies I can get.’ These four companies that produce this food will be sold out within days. The second thing you have to consider is that Homeland Security and FEMA either purchase all of it or seize it.”
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.
Sunday marked the first anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark marriage equality decision, which, if Religious Right activists were to be believed, was to usher in a horrible tyranny that would lead to mass deaths and war.
Of course, the Right’s doomsday predictions about what would happen if same-sex marriage became legal nationwide were totally unfounded, and only a tiny contingent of conservativescame to a protest the ruling in Washington, D.C., this weekend.
While the conservative movement certainly hasn’t given up on the fight against LGBT rights and is thrilled by Donald Trump’spromise to appoint anti-LGBT judges who would oppose the marriage ruling, many activists have once again shown that they are more interested in stirring up fears about the LGBT community than in the facts.
Here are just five of the craziestpredictions that conservative politicians and pundits made about Obergefell v. Hodges, all of which are yet to come true.
Many “mainstream” Religious Right leaders said that if the Supreme Court were to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage, Americans should prepare for a revolution.
“We’ve got to fight to our deaths to save this great country,” said Cliff Kincaid of the conservative group Accuracy In Media, while Vision America’s Rick Scarborough vowed that he was willing to “burn” in defiance of gay marriage, which he said would “unleash the spirit of hell on the nation.”
One year later, no anti-gay revolution has occurred and Rick Scarborough has not self-immolated.
Just before the ruling, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah called on governors “to secede” from the union in order “to offer a refuge” for the “millions of Americans” who he believed would flee the country as a result of marriage equality. “The rewards could be great. I would certainly consider relocating. How about you?” he asked. “If not a state, are there any nations in the world interested in a pilgrimage by millions of Americans?”
Focus on the Family founder James Dobson warned that the U.S. could witness a second civil war over a same-sex marriage decision and televangelist Rick Joyner predicted that the court would “start an unraveling where our country fractures like it hasn’t since the Civil War.”
Radio host Rick Wiles predicted that “God will cut off America’s food supply and this nation will be hit with disease, pestilence, drought, natural calamities and a great shaking” and urged people to flee the country.
Following the passage of the 2009 law that expanded hate crime protections to LGBT people, many right-wing politicians and analysts falsely claimed that the act legalized pedophilia. Of course, it did nothing of the sort and child abuse is still a crime.
Many of these same people claimed years later that the Obergefell ruling would also legalize pedophilia, which, obviously, it did not do.
If the courts rule that people have a civil right not only to be a homosexual but a civil right to have a homosexual marriage, then a homosexual couple coming to a pastor who believes in biblical marriage who says ‘I can’t perform that wedding’ will now be breaking the law. It’s not just saying, ‘I’m sorry you have a preference.’ No, you will be breaking the law subject to civil for sure and possible criminal penalties for violating the law…. If you do practice biblical convictions and you carry them out and you do what you’ve been led by the spirit of God to do, your behavior will be criminal.
No pastor has been arrested for refusing to officiate a same-sex couple’s wedding, reading from the Bible or preaching against homosexuality, all things that conservatives predicted would happen.
Many pundits, however, have wrongly used the case of Kim Davis to claim that their fears were realized.
Davis, a Kentucky county clerk, was temporarily incarcerated by a federal judge when she refused to abide by court orders which found that she was unlawfully denying same-sex couples marriage licenses. Davis, who boasted that she was defying the Supreme Court decision and subsequent rulings because she was working under “ God’s authority ,” was released after deputy clerks in the county office agreed to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Davis was not incarcerated because of her religious objections but because, in her role as a government employee, she clearly defied the rule of law. She was not attempting to exercise her religious freedom as a private citizen but was trying to impose her personal religious beliefs on the functions of government, and make all the people in her jurisdiction abide by her faith.
Yesterday, Rick Wiles appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” to discuss the threat of ISIS in America after the attack at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando.
Wiles, who hosts the conspiracy theory radio program “Trunews,” said that he also thought that Christina Grimmie, a singer who was murdered in Orlando by an obsessed fan, was targeted by ISIS. “The very first thought I had when I heard about it was, ‘Was it an Islamic attack?’ Now, there’s been no reports about it. That story disappeared because it was overshadowed by the Orlando massacre. But a guy just walked up at the end of a concert and shot her for no reason. The reason I instantly considered the possibility it was a hit because just days before that killing ISIS had published a kill list.”
Later, Bakker and Wiles agreed that martial law is coming to America, which Bakker cited as a reason for viewers to purchase his ministry’s survival food buckets.
“We are one crisis from martial law,” Wiles said, warning that U.S. officials will use martial law to stay in office indefinitely and that the upcoming election “possibly could be postponed.”
Wiles went on to mention a discredited story about the supposed arrest of “a Middle Eastern woman who had in her possession the drawings and plans of natural gas pipelines.”
“We’re headed this summer, I am convinced, this summer and fall, unless God intervenes, this is going to be the bloodiest, goriest time in America since the Civil War, this summer and fall,” he said. “If God does not intervene, Jim, this summer and fall will be the bloodiest since the Civil War.”
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.”
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
It took almost no time at all for conservative pundits and politicians to claim that President Obama either wanted the terrorist attack in Orlando to take place or will use the tragedy to advance his nefarious agenda.
According to Jones, President Obama and other leaders are trying to encourage Muslims to settle in America in hopes that they will soon turn to violence, which will in turn justify government attempts to censor speech and seize firearms: “Our governments are bringing these people in and they’re allowing them to operate openly in our society so they can attack us and then have our freedoms taken.”
The fact that the shooter was born in New York didn’t stop Jones from blaming “the Islamic invasion” of America through immigration.
“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,” he said.
4) ‘Confiscate Muslims’
“Trunews” host Rick Wiles wants the government to go one step further than just banning Muslim immigration, telling his listeners that every single Muslim living in the U.S. must be rounded up and deported before Islam, which he said should be criminalized, “destroys civilization”:
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.
3) Tom DeLay Has Some Thoughts
Former House GOP Leader Tom DeLay weighed in on the massacre in Orlando by telling Wiles that the president is a Marxist/Islamist anti-American mastermind who has “empowered” terrorist groups and “put American lives in danger.”
“He’s certainly a Muslim sympathizer and he’s scared to death that the United States and the people of the United States will go after and discriminate against Muslims and that’s why he can’t say the words, ‘radical Islamists,’” he said. “It’s his worldview. This is who he is. He was raised in a communist upbringing. He hates America.”
2) ‘Obama Intends To Take Control Of The Internet’
Apparently unaware of how net neutrality works, Rush Limbaugh said today that the president, when he commented that “deranged individuals” like the Orlando shooter are often “warped by the hateful propaganda that they had seen over the internet,” actually revealed that he “intends to take control of the internet, using this as justification,” linking it back to Obama’s support for net neutrality rules.
“Obama's takeover of the internet will not be to prevent these kinds of things from happening,” he said. “He's got an entirely different agenda. All the Democrats do. It's total control. It's limiting access to information. It's about shutting down opposition. That's why they want control of the internet.” Watch via Media Matters:
If Limbaugh is really worried about an American leader using terrorism as an excuse to “take control of the internet,” then he should look no further than Donald Trump.
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.”
