At last week’s Eagle Forum Collegian Summit, Sen. Jeff Sessions, Republican of Alabama, told a crowd of young conservatives that the Supreme Court was wrong in its “beyond breathtaking” ruling to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide.
“People could get married before the Supreme Court ruling, two people could call themselves married” he explained, saying that same-sex couples could “go off at the beach and have flowers and play rock music” in a symbolic, but not legally recognized, ceremony.
Sessions also took a page from Religious Right activists like Tony Perkins and Rick Wiles, and warned that Christians would soon be persecuted for their beliefs: “We are at a period of secularization in America that I think is very dangerous, it erodes the very concept of truth, the very concept of right and wrong, and there are people out there who enjoy attacking people who follow biblical directives.”
“This is the gaystapo," Wiles said, "this is just like the Nazi homosexuals in the 1930s. It was a militant homosexual network that took over Germany, that’s what this is, and they are going to silence all opposition if people do not stand up and put a stop to this stuff."
Klein warned that churches may soon be forced to fly the rainbow pride flag, which Wiles said is just what the Nazis did in forcing German churches to embrace the swastika: “There is no difference: rainbow flag, Nazi swastika, it’s the same thing. It’s the same spirit behind it.”
While he agreed with Wiles’s sinister outlook and alleged that gay people are trying to coerce him to join them in their sins, Klein felt encourage by the response from others to his ordeal. “This could be a turning point,” he said. “Satan may have overplayed his hand and we might have a chance for revival in this country.”
Wiles also suggested that the “freaks” behind the nondiscrimination law will incite divine wrath: “How close is the Oregon state capital to an earthquake fault?”
“People who live on a subduction zone should not defy the living God,” Wiles said. “Let’s be real blunt about it: If you live on a fault line or a volcano, you really shouldn’t be shaking your fist at the God who made the planet. That’s really dumb.”
Klein agreed, stating that people should not “challenge God,” before accusing the state of operating like “Marxist Russia” when it fined him in the discrimination case.
“That’s what this country is heading towards,” he added. “It’s what Hitler said, he said if you want to truly, truly rule a people, take away their freedoms one at a time, almost imperceptibly. By the time they realized what has happened, it will be too late — and that’s what we’re watching happen in this country.”
On last week’s edition of “Trunews,” host Rick Wiles claimed that the U.S. is transforming into a communist country under President Obama’s leadership. And just as the leaders of communist movements in the Soviet Union and China killed dissidents and repressed religion, “the same thing is underway in America in 2015” under Obama’s “communist-inspired cultural cleansing of American society.”
“I’ve warned since 2007 that Barack Hussein Obama would overthrow this nation and impose tyranny on America, and if the Obamanistas are not stopped and removed from power very soon, they will be emboldened to take more strident actions to destroy the last remaining vestiges of America’s history,” Wiles said. “History tells us that they will separate children from parents and indoctrinate the children in the ways of the revolution. They will disarm the citizens. They will ruthlessly persecute any and all opponents. They will confiscated private property and wealth. They will destroy the careers and businesses of opponents. They will imprison those who dare to defy the revolution. They will send resistors to reeducation camps. And if all else fails to stop opposition to the Marxist revolution, they will slaughter millions of American resistors in a bloody cleansing of the general population.”
As “proof of this revolution,” Wiles claimed Obama kicked off this murderous campaign with the massacre at a Chattanooga military recruitment center, alleging that the shooter was “one of Barack Hussein Obama’s Muslim bros.”
In case you need another example of how ridiculous the Religious Right’s persecution complex has become, look no further than Friday’s edition of “Trunews,” where Rick Wiles spoke with Texas pastor and activist Rick Hertless about a prayer rally he will be hosting outside of the U.S. Capitol in September.
Hertless told Wiles that he “should’ve stormed the Capitol” in protest of the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality, “but now I’m going to.”
After Wiles claimed that Christians in America will soon be “where the early church was during the Roman Empire,” Hertless said that he has already told his congregation that “the church is going underground.”
Hertless added that unlike Wiles, who vowed to leave the U.S. because of the legalization of gay marriage, he plans to stay “on the frontlines” in America.
He even bravely pledged to “fight the battle in the underground church at risk of life.”
End Times radio host Rick Wiles yesterday sounded off on a recently-released photo of a 7-year-old Queen Elizabeth “mimicking her uncle, the future king Edward VIII,” in making the Nazi salute. The “Trunews” host cited the 1933 photo as proof that “the Nazis are in control of the West right now, the United States of America has been taken over by neo-Nazis.”
And who are our Nazi overlords?
“The left, the homosexual rights movement, the abortionists, these are Nazis, they’re Nazis,” he said.
Responding to the Chattanooga shooting, Wiles alleged that “millions of Americans will die in one day in this country” after Muslim-Americans, whom he claims only seek “to slaughter the people who do not convert to Islam,” take up arms en masse against non-Muslims in a violent “day of jihad.”
Lipkin spoke with Rick Wiles yesterday on “Trunews” about the Iranian nuclear deal, which he said is all part of Obama’s plan to make “Israel go to war against Iran.” Saudi Arabia will then emerge as the regional power since the two countries will “destroy each other.” (After all, Lipkin believes that Obama is a “Saudi plant.”) This Iranian-Israeli war will allow Obama to “free himself up for his real mission, which is to make America a Muslim country.”
“President Obama is a Muslim,” Lipkin continued. “If you’re a Muslim, your god is Satan; if you’re a Muslim, then you are criminally psychotic. This is the plan to destroy the human race. This is something that Allah wants.”
He added that Muslims believe that “the only way for Allah to be greater than the God of the Jews and the Christians is to kill every last human being on the face of the earth, that’s the plan of Islam.”
Yesterday, notorious “Stone Homos” pastor James David Manning appeared on “Trunews” for a “discussion about Barack Obama’s satanic assault on America’s morality.”
Not only did Manning spend time criticizing President Obama, but he also castigated the Supreme Court, arguing that “the Devil himself has written this opinion” on marriage equality.
He also told host Rick Wiles that “perhaps [Justice] Kennedy and many of those who are on the Supreme Court have had sodomite relations themselves” and were being blackmailed by their secret gay lovers: “They have got to support this sodomy, they’ve got to say it or otherwise they get exposed.”
Manning said people don’t realize that the court’s ruling on same-sex marriage will lead to the fall of America: “Fifty years from now people will look back at this period and say, ‘My God from Zion, how could a nation have fallen, how could the mighty have fallen so quickly and so far and so low?’”
“If there’s anybody still alive in the United States of America 50 years from now,” Wiles added.
The “Trunews” host explained that “this country is ripe to be overthrown” since “we no longer have the Lord’s protection” and “the Lord is no longer obligated to defend the United States of America,” warning that “there’s a great attitude adjustment coming to the United States very, very soon.”
End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles blasted the U.S. military yesterday for moving to end the ban on transgender service members, which Wiles pointed to as proof that America is turning into Babylon and “descending into the pit of filthy lewdness.”
Rather than serve alongside “transvestites,” Wiles said, “all Christians in the U.S. Armed Forces must now come out and all pastors must now announce to their congregations that young men and women in the churches should not enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces.”
“Shame on the U.S. military for capitulating to Barack Obama’s sexual perversion,” the “Trunews” host said. “History will shame them for their moral cowardliness.”
Wiles also warned of a nuclear war with Russia, which he says has plans to use military force to stop America’s “gay delirium.” And “of course those nuclear weapons will go up against America’s new transvestite army.”
On Monday’s edition of “Trunews,” End Times preacher Rick Wiles spoke with Tampa pastor Aubrey Shines, author of the book “Homosexuality? Things That The Media Won’t Tell You!,” about the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage.
Shines told Wiles that the marriage ruling will lead to massive anti-Christian persecution, which will in turn spark a movement of civil disobedience “that is going to go beyond what we saw back in the ‘60s.”
Wiles claimed that the U.S. has reached the point where federal agents will soon move to arrest pastors and seize church buildings, sparking a violent confrontation: “You’re going to see gunfire.”
“I don’t doubt it,” Shines said. He added that while “we’ll continue to utilize as much as even though it is trampled on, and that is, working within the confines of the law, but if we are forced to deal with these issues, make no mistake about it, America was born out of this idea where pastors left their pulpits to fight back a tyranny from England. I don’t believe that we’re just a few hundred years away from it that we could not see, unfortunately, things like that again, but if it needs be, I think people that have strong religious convictions as I and others do, we will be more than up for that task.”
On his “Trunews” program this week, Rick Wiles declared that God will no longer protect Americans from attacks as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality, which he said turned the country into “the United Gay States of America.”
Wiles claimed that God told him that His marriage with the U.S. is over, since America was like a young bride who was “good in her youth but became an old whore in the end.” He recounted how God told him during a patriotic church service to “turn your back on the American flag in this church as a witness to this congregation that my covenant with America is over.”
“I bowed my head and I remained quiet,” Wiles recalled, “as the people verbally renewed their allegiance to the flag of modern Babylon, the United Gay States of America.”
“I heard the Lord say, ‘Very soon, great woe and travail shall come upon the American people and when they cry to me for help, I will turn my back on them as they turned their back on me, I will not answer their pleas for help,’” he said.
Wiles also had a few words for President Obama: “Without a doubt, Barack Obama is the most vile, wicked, evil man to gain power since Adolf Hitler. I believe he is demon-possessed. I also suspect that in the Kremlin, political intelligence and military officials are being briefed by Russian psychiatrists on Mr. Obama’s mental instability and the psychosis that is spreading quickly through American society.”
This led to a larger rant about how the U.S. has been overtaken by sex-worshiping barbarians who can only be stopped by Russia’s godly leaders.
“America is now a nuclear-armed rogue nation and the Russians must be alarmed that another Nazi empire has appeared on the planet led by sexually perverted madmen who have started wars and are fomenting revolutions around the world,” Wiles said. “Have you considered the possibility that the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church has privately advised Mr. Putin and Russian generals that it is their Christian duty to destroy America in order to stop her sexual lewdness from infecting the rest of the world?”
After warning that Russia may obliterate the U.S., he claimed that “the barbarians have breached America’s walls of righteousness and America’s wall of righteousness have fallen down, the barbarians have entered the land, they have burned the word of the Lord and they have set up their idols to their sexual gods.”
Former House GOP leader Tom DeLay recently announced that he had uncovered a secret Justice Department memo, which he has yet to publish for the public to see, that details a plan to legalize sex with children and animals in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down bans on same-sex marriage.
On the Tuesday edition of “Trunews,” End Times prophet Rick Wiles pointed to this totally real memo as proof that the “synagogue of Satan” has taken over America.
“The church does not comprehend the depth, scope and intensity of the wave of raw evil that Hell is unleashing against us in 2015,” Wiles said. “If Tom DeLay is correct, and I believe he is telling the truth, then there truly is a tsunami of perversion and wicked sin coming to the United States and it will be exported to other nations through the muscle of the U.S. State Department, the military and Hollywood.”
Far-right pastor Paul Blair joined Rick Wiles on his “Trunews” radio program last Wednesday to discuss the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down gay marriage bans, the debate over which Wiles said will inevitably “come to blows” as the government launches EMP attacks and the Jade Helm 15 military exercise against states that resist the ruling.
“The only way to stop force is with force,” Blair declared. The liberty to discriminate against gays is “not going to come easy,” he said, warning that “we are going to have a fist fight on our hands.”
“We’re at the point, pastor, that it’s going to come to blows,” Wiles agreed. “We have reached that point, because either we’re going to stand up and resist and suffer the consequences, or we’re going to roll over and play dead and let them take control.”
“This regime is so mad, such lunatics for power,” he continued, “I think they would use an EMP against a state that dared to defy them. I really do. I think these people are insane and they’re dangerous.”
Christians have “reached the danger level,” Wiles declared, reasoning, “That may explain why Jade Helm 15 is taking place in the South and the Western states this summer, because they know that people are starting to rise up and say ‘something’s got to happen.’ Either we take a stand, or it’s over; it’s finished.”
Far-right End Times preacher David Lankford joined Rick Wiles on his “Trunews” program yesterday to discuss the supposed persecution of American Christians and the destruction of the United States due to gay rights. Discussing President Obama’s remarks on the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, Wiles described how we will see “persecution unlike anything that has happened until now” as Obama continues to “prove himself to be evil beyond words.” This persecution will become a “time of purging” and come down on Christians “like a thunderbolt.”
Wiles continued that Christians will be “taken off the face of the earth” and “unproductive people,” such as the elderly, “will be removed from society” as progressives deem them useless.
This persecution and purging of society will of course be led by President Obama, whom Wiles said is the “Antichrist” and will soon declare “martial law” using gay marriage as his vehicle for state control. Under martial law, he said, “people will be forbidden to leave America until society purges himself of the unwanted.”
Lankford, who knows the cause of such evil, described the “mongrel hybrid spirits” that are currently being released. “If you noticed,” continued Lankford, “everything’s becoming hybrid: hybrid cars, hybrid golf clubs” and “Bruce Caitlyn Jenner.” Wiles, agreeing with the danger of demonic golf clubs, argued that “enough [demons] are active again, and we’re seeing this rebirth of hybrid beings” from the time of Noah.
Wiles, describing the transgender movement as rooted in “the spirit of lunacy,” quoted “a Russian politician who said that ‘America has gone mad, and a ‘gay delirium’ is threatening the entire world.’”
According to Lankford, heterosexuality is clearly a “universal design by God” because “you plug a receptacle, a lap cord into the wall — that’s a male and a female. A door knob — the cylinder goes into the wall, a key in an ignition switch. You charge your cell phone — it’s male; it’s female. Two hose pipes — you can’t put two males together; you can’t put two females together.”
“How do you put two cars and make a garage? It don’t work,” concluded Lankford.
On Tuesday’s edition of “Trunews,” End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles delivered a eulogy for America and lamented that “the America I knew and loved is dead, rest in peace. It will not be resurrected.” Wiles cited the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize marriage equality as the cause of our nation’s untimely death, calling the ruling “the final abomination.”
“How can I pledge allegiance to the flag of a nation that celebrates sexual perversion, pornography and baby killing?” Wiles asked. He later added that he is "embarrassed to be a legal citizen in a nation that is openly promoting sexual perversion and compelling other nations to rebel against God too.”
According to Wiles, the death of America has ushered in a new era for the country: the era of Babylon. He criticized the “Babylonian pagans”— which is what he now calls American citizens — for rejecting the Lord’s presence and even chastised his evangelical peers, declaring, “Christians who are acting like nothing seriously happened last Friday are like people sitting on a fiery sofa in a burning house.”
Wiles, who will no longer say the pledge of allegiance or the phrase “God Bless America,” warned listeners that “there is no end to the sexual perversion this country has now opened itself to, the floodgates to sexual perversion – lewdness, sorcery, witchcraft and rebellion – opened wide last Friday.”
He also cited a Russian MP who claimed that the U.S. will “use military might and intimidation” to force other countries to accept same-sex marriage and spread its “gay delirium.”
The fire and brimstone tribute to America ended with Wiles’ assertion that “the final abomination” was upon us, which Wiles said was a reference to a dream Pastor T.D. Hale had in 2005. In his dream, Wiles said, Hale saw an American Eagle shot down in the Oval Office, with a voice saying “Weep in the house, for the misery that shall come shortly.”
Hale envisioned a smirking President Obama, dressed in all black, stepping out from behind his desk and twisting off the Eagle’s head.
“His chest cavity was open,” Wiles narrated, “The heart was exceedingly evil with thick black smoke swirling around Obama’s heart.” Obama then picked up a gavel and a voice overhead gravely proclaimed “The final abomination.”
The right-wing response to the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision has been, quite literally, apocalyptic.
It’s only been five days since the court issued its ruling, but conservative pundits have already predicted that gay marriage will ultimately be responsible for natural disasters, terrorist attacks and the destruction of freedom.
While there haven’t been any terrorist attacks against the U.S. since the court’s ruling, whenever there are, anti-LGBT activists will know who to blame: gay people who want to get married.
“They have thumbed their nose at God’s design for man, a man and a woman designed from the beginning of time and creation, and it will not, it will not stand,” she added. “While we’re under such terrible terror threats, you know, our protections have been lifted and that’s what they don’t understand.”
Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, also warned that “God’s hand of protection will be withdrawn as future actions from external and internal forces will soon make clear. I will do all I can to prevent such harm, but I am gravely fearful that the stage has now been set.”
“America’s elite leadership have taken the side of the enemies of God, and He will take notice,” WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah warned, claiming that such divine judgment “could come in the form of an attack on our country from foreign power or terrorist group.”
Rick Wiles, host of the End Times radio program “Trunews,” similarly predicted that God will now “lift His hand of protection from this nation” and “permit America’s enemies to attack this nation.”
Cliff Kincaid of the conservative group Accuracy in Media was a little more tame in his reasoning but came to the same conclusion: “A country that descends to the bottom of the barrel morally and culturally will not be able to defend itself against its foreign adversaries and enemies. Indeed, we have the evidence all around us that, as the culture has degenerated, our ability to defend ourselves has simultaneously been weakened.”
2)Forced gay sex
The right-wing warnings of “forced homosexuality” are now coming true, at least according to one pastor. Tim Brooks of the Christian Ministries Church told one conservative radio program that gay people, just like the men of Sodom who tried to rape angelic visitors, “are trying to force their lifestyle on him, come out and have sex with us, have to participate.”
Record-breaking floods have inundated Washington, D.C. just days after the Supreme Court decided they knew better than God. I seem to remember another time in history when there was a record-breaking flood.
God painted the sky with rainbow colors after that flood. This go-around - Obama painted the White House with rainbow colors.
Anybody got an ark?
Heavy rain may not be the only result of same-sex marriage (besides equal marriage rights for gay people), as some Religious Right pundits also believe that divine wrath will come in the form of food shortages and drought.
Wiles warned 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.”
“Nothing grabs the attention of the distracted faster than the complete removal of all creature comforts and extravagant wealth,” Christian Post columnist Michael Bresciani said. “Crops will fail, stores will close and commerce will come almost to a complete stop. It will not be pretty. Add to that, attacks from our enemies and natural disasters rising to meet the pride of the sinners’ right where it hurts the most.”
Five years ago, Religious Right leaders confidently predicted that prison cells and court rooms would fill up with pastors after the passage of the 2009 Hate Crimes Act. Of course, such events never occurred, but now the same anti-LGBT activists are making the samefalseclaims about the supposed consequences of same-sex marriage.
“Pastors who refuse to perform gay marriage and preach from the Bible should prepare for hate crime charges,” Starnes said. “All dissent will be silenced.”
Richard Land, a former leader of the Southern Baptist Convention’s political arm, was a little more cautious, explaining that pastors will indeed face prison if they refuse to officiate same-sex couple’s weddings, but only after the government takes a few “intermediate steps.”
Just days prior to the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling, Glenn Beck said that if the court were to decide in favor of same-sex couples, then the Bible would be outlawed as a “hate book.” Just hours after the decision came down, Beck offered another dire warning: He will lose his show.
“This could mean the end of radio broadcasts like mine,” Beck said, insisting that he will be taken off the air simply because he is “for traditional marriage.”
7)Taking kids from their parents
Chicago-based pastor Erwin Lutzer believes that parents who oppose same-sex marriage may lose custody of their children following the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling, predicting that “parents that homeschool children, religious parents, will be diagnosed as culturally intolerant and personality intolerant. And therefore, as a result, their children will be taken away from them.”
Rios, the AFA official, even warned that children may be forced to spy on their parents like in the Soviet Union.
8)This means war
Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman denounced the marriage equality ruling as a “harbinger to revolution,” urging Americans to take to rebellion like the Founding Fathers did.
“If evil despots have compromised even our Supreme Court, the ultimate protector and ‘decider’ of our rights, then what choice is left to us?” Klayman asked. “John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin certainly know, from their own experience with King George, and from their graves they see what now again lies ahead and what must be done to restore freedom to our shores.”
One conservative pundit, Bill Muehlenberg, told readers that “a major proper response for Christians and others” to the Supreme Court’s ruling “is massive civil disobedience and defiance of this homo-fascist decision.”
9)Pedophilia now legal
Former House GOP Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who promised that “all hell is going to break loose” if the Supreme Court decided to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage, declared that he has uncovered a “secret memo” from the Department of Justice that reveals plans to legalize “having sex with little boys,” along with bestiality and polygamy.
The website run by West, the former congressman, even claimed that pedophilia supporters celebrated the Friday ruling. As the myth-busting website Snopes notes, the blog post on West’s site was “lifted almost entirely from an article published in 2011 and in no way reflected a claim prompted by a June 2015 Supreme Court decision regarding same-sex marriage.” They add that the 2011 story “originated with a writer who has been asserting for years (less than accurately) that the push for gay rights is manifestly setting the stage for legalized ‘pedophilia rights.’”
Perhaps the blog post’s author received this news from David Barton, the right-wing pseudo-historian who just days before the court issued its ruling alleged, falsely, that pedophilia became “legally protected” following the passage of the 2009 Hate Crimes Act.
10)Criminalization of Christianity
The most prominent claim coming from the Religious Right in response to the Supreme Court’s decision has been what Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has called the government attempt to “eliminate” religious beliefs that oppose gay rights.
“In one appalling decision, the Supreme Court has effectively opened the door to the criminalization of Christianity when it comes to the marriage issue ... and not just Christianity, but every major religion that supports God’s model for marriage and family,” warned Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America.
Right-wing pundit Matt Barber made a similar claim: “The goal of ‘LGBT’ activists and secular progressives has long been to pit the government directly against the free exercise of religion – Christianity in particular – and to silence all dissent.”
One FRC official, Craig James, said that conservatives who oppose the same-sex marriage decision should respond to the coming persecution and ridicule “in love” … just like the families of the Charleston massacre.
End Times radio host Rick Wiles said on his “Trunews” radio program yesterday that he made an appearance in Washington, D.C., on Friday to warn people celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision striking down state bans on same-sex marriage that the country, as a result of the court ruling, will soon face divine destruction.
This will be his final warning call as a prophetic watchman, Wiles said, since now “judgment is certain.”
“In 2012, the Lord had shown me that America is morphing into Babylon and I will say this to you: The metamorphic transformation is complete. America became Mystery Babylon last Friday and I know her fate,” he said, adding that the Bible advises people to “flee from the midst of Babylon.”
Wiles told Alan Colmes today that he is preparing to leave the U.S. to an undisclosed location, claiming that God will “lift His hand of protection from this nation” and “permit America’s enemies to attack this nation.”
He also predicted economic devastation, food shortages, “disease, pestilence, drought, natural calamities and a great shaking.”
“America is over,” Wiles said. “The final stage will be a surprise attack by America’s enemies which will end up with foreign soldiers on the soil of the United States of America and the American people will go into slavery.”
On Wednesday, fanatical End Times radio host Rick Wiles kicked off his radio program with a long attack on what he claims is the false doctrine of a pre-tribulation rapture, which is the idea that Christians will be taken up to Heaven before the world descends into war, famine, and chaos prior to the return of Christ.
Wiles was outraged that this view is widely held among conservative Christians today, but the real target of his wrath was the board of directors of Christian radio station KATB in Alaska, which voted to stop broadcasting Wiles' radio show just three days after it began airing on the station because he preached against this doctrine.
But it is Wiles who will have the last laugh, he declared, when Russia invades Alaska as God's judgment upon America for homosexuality.
"All I can say to the KATB board of directors is you guys will be the first people to see the Russian soldiers moving across the Bering Strait to invade the continental U.S.A. and bring judgment to this country for becoming a land of sodomites," Wiles said. "Don't worry. You will be raptured before World War III begins, right?"
On the Friday edition of “Trunews,” Religious Right broadcaster Rick Wiles interviewed “the mother of a toddler who prophesied that the ‘King is Coming!’” The mother, Chelsea Hansen, who said that she has been “following End Times for about four years,” told Wiles that she has had her own prophetic dreams, including one about how President Obama is “distracting” Americans from knowledge of God’s imminent judgment.
That’s all it took to convince Wiles, who said that Hansen’s dream is proof that Obama will soon “solve the Middle East crisis” to distract Americans.
Naturally, Wiles is very insistent that Obama is about to do something big. He told listeners that the military exercise Jade Helm 15 “is intended to get the American public accustom to seeing troops and tanks on the streets and helicopters landing in cities.”
“A military presence in our streets will be necessary next fall when the people realize the country is over,” Wiles said. “Obama has another year in power. He’s not going to seize power illegally this year. He’ll wait, he’ll save it until next year as his term comes to an end.”
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
This week, we learn that President Obama and Hillary Clinton are in cahoots with radical Islam, Caitlyn Jenner’s gender transition is a hoax, Ferguson has unleashed a wave of criminals, and gays continue to destroy the nation.
Obama’s Muslim Plot
Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly explained in an interview with WorldNetDaily this week that President Obama is planning for the U.S. to take in Muslim refugees from war-torn nations such a Syria as part of his plan to wage “war on America,” knowing full well that Syrian refugees seek to “take over the world and establish their caliphate.”
“I don’t think he should let any Muslims in this country,” Schlafly said. “There is no reason why they should come in.” By permitting Muslim refugees to enter the U.S., Schlafly argued, “Obama is trying to absolutely change America by bringing in people who have no sympathy with what Americans believe.”
On her Eagle Forum blog, Schlafly also praised Ann Coulter’s new anti-immigrant screed “Adios America,” thanking Coulter for “alerting Americas to how Obama and the Democrats are destroying the land we love” by “diluting our population” with individuals “who commit all sorts of unspeakable crimes, in particular crimes against very young women and girls.”
Michael Savage joined in on the conspiracy theory, calling Obama a “con man shyster” who is attempting to destroy America by “injecting, like a virus, Muslims from Syria into all-white communities in America.” Obama, according to Savage, has also taken “infected children from Honduras and put them in every school district he could.”
Plenty of right-wing activists are upset about Caitlyn Jenner’s transition. But some have looked beyond the headlines to reveal the true conspiracy that’s afoot.
Alex Jones, host of “InfoWars”, hypothesized that Jenner’s announcement was actually just a plot to distract Americans from Obama’s mischievous, scheming ways. Jones declared that he does not “like being force-fed constantly this weird, one agenda. The obsession, it’s got to be from like five, six years, because I cover media, with the trannies and transvestites.”
“What’s behind the agenda?” Jones asked, revealing that the true agenda of the media is to not only distract us from Obama’s civil war but to “make the coolest thing to be” a “tranny or a transvestite” and glorify a “creepy old guy.”
Jones is not alone in his suspicions, as Cliff Kincaid of the conservative group Accuracy In Media wondered in Barbwire if Jenner’s transition was just “a hoax” to promote her upcoming TV show. Kincaid argued that the greatest threat is to children, criticizing Jenner’s supporters for sending an “extremely damaging” message. Kincaid made sure to warn us that “the nation may not survive, as it becomes a laughingstock before self-destructing or becoming easy pickings for a determined foreign adversary.”
While it may seem like Jenner is simply showing the world her authentic self, Kincaid urged us to question, “Where is the evidence that this is anything but a hoax?”
Hillary Clinton And Her Radical Muslim Cronies
The right loves to hate Hillary Clinton, and the latest conspiracy theories paint Clinton as a supporter and friend of “murderous Islamic thugs.” Rick Wiles, host of “Trunews,” spoke to Christopher Farrell of Judicial Watch Tuesday about his group’s claim that the U.S. compound in Benghazi was “arming Al Qaeda” and coordinating arms shipments to Islamic terrorists in Syria. While this connection may force some to then question why Islamic terrorists attacked the Benghazi compound in 2012, this question did not concern Wiles and Farrell.
Wiles compared the end of Gary Hart’s presidential campaign due to a photograph surfacing “of him with a pretty blonde sitting on his lap” to the apparent “murderous Islamic thugs sitting on the lap of Hillary Clinton.”
While a Republican-led investigation by the House Select Committee on Intelligence found Judicial Watch’s allegations about arm ships to Syria to be as credible as Hillary playing Santa with Islamic terrorists, Farrell and Wiles are not the only ones to remain unconvinced. David Horowitz, a far-right conservative activist, alleged in an interview with Newsmax TV on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, leaked information to the militants who killed four American diplomats in Benghazi. Clinton “got four people killed in Benghazi,” Horowitz argued. “She, you know, disclosed her private emails to Huma Abedin, a Muslim Brotherhood operative that showed where Ambassador Stephens was all the time, making him a perfect target.”
‘The Ferguson Effect”
Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal last Friday titled “The New Nationwide Crime Wave” and the effect has been a week of media outlets sounding the alarm. Apparently, the civil unrest that began after the killing of Michael Brown has flooded the country, inspiring widespread crime.
What this theory lacks in nuance it makes up for in cherry-picked statistics that create a misleading image of increased violence and death. Switching between comparing shootings, violent felonies, and gun-related homicides, Mac Donald argued that the U.S. is “in the grips of a hysteria against cops” and that “cops have gotten the message that they should back off policing,” causing the flood gates to open and crime to wash over the nation.
This tsunami of crime, claimed Mac Donald, is the fault of the “mainstream media, the university presidents talking about assaults on blacks and of course the president and former attorney general.”
Anti-Gay Conspiracy Of The Week
This week in anti-gay conspiracies, gay men are exporting sodomy “to the entire universe” and the prospect of gay marriage will destroy America and cause millions to flee and/or demand secession.
Mike Heath, former head of the Maine Family Policy Council and current blogger on BarbWire, warned that the “[gay] virus is spreading rapidly. It won’t be enough to pervert the whole world with this evil anti-family worldview. Since the developed governments of the world aspire to colonizing planets we have to prepare for the export of sodomy to other worlds—to the entire universe!” Referencing the Apostle Paul, Heath pointed out that “you can tell when a nation has become a walking corpse when it has endorsed perverted sex.”
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, in an interview with CNS News, had a similarly dire warning, claiming that a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality would “literally cause the destruction of our country.” The court is “toying with something that’s like dynamite and will destroy our country,” he said.
If, however, by some stroke of luck America does not blow up following a ruling in favor of marriage equality, WorldNetDaily founder and editor Joseph Farah promises that it would be met by secession and mass emigration. Farah wrote that “we need a Promised Land. We need and Exodus strategy.” He asked if there are “any governors or legislatures out there among the 50 states willing to secede to offer a refuge for the God-fearing?” If governors cannot promise Farah this, he promised us there would be a “pilgrimage by millions of Americans” fleeing marriage equality.
