LaBarbera: LGBT Rights Will Cause America's Downfall

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality joined Religious Right activist Penna Dexter on her “Point of View” radio show on Wednesday, where he claimed transgenderism is deviant and abhorrent and that government support for LGBT rights will lead to the “downfall” of America.

LaBarbera said that in backing LGBT rights, the Obama administration is supporting “the gender-confused” and is “mainstreaming deviance.” “Rather than protecting people and guiding them to the social good, you are instead catering and pandering and incentivizing effective abhorrence,” LaBarbera said.

He continued, “It’s one thing if a person struggles with something, and our hearts as believers, as Christians, they go out, the people who are struggling with any sin problem or any confusion, we want to help them.”

“When it comes to the point of government then saying ‘We will reward  misidentification, we will turn it into a civil right,’ thereby insulting every black American in our history by comparing gender confusion-based rights and homosexuality-based rights to real civil rights,” he said, “when it gets to that point you’re really incentivizing confusion and you’re bringing about the downfall of your country.”

 

Daubenmire: Real Men Would Use 'Pitchforks And Torches' To Settle Transgender Bathroom Debate

On “Talkback with Chuck Wilder” this Tuesday, Ohio Religious Right activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire suggested men today need to “man up” with “pitchforks and torches” to fight transgender people’s use of bathrooms that match their gender identity.

“What would our forefathers have done?” Daubenmire asked. “What would they have done two generations ago if the president of the United States tried to tell them to let men walk into their kids’ bathrooms?” Daubenmire answered his own question: “There’d have been pitchforks and torches. They’d have gone downtown and they’d have gotten things straightened out.”

“They would say, ‘We need that committee that was talking to the Salem witches,’” Wilder said. Wilder and Daubenmire then discussed whether witches are male or female. “Whatever, it doesn’t matter,” Daubenmire said.

“What’s wrong with us, Chuck?” Daubenmire asked. “How is it that we’re so sissified that daddies are going to let perverts violate their daughters’ restrooms?” He agreed with Wilder’s statement that that “political correctness” and “insisting on diversity” are the main problems that led to this. Wilder said that under Obama, areas require “X amount of Chinese, black, white, I’m sure we gotta get the Syrians in there now. Diversity, I’m telling you, it’s scary. You know, let America be America without any prejudice, and it should work perfectly.”

Daubenmire then discussed the consequences of ending government-mandated prayer in public schools and the resulting “ungodly government” that we have today. “The son of Satan himself has seized the White House,” he said, coming back to a theme he had discussed earlier in the program. “I’m not calling [President Obama] the Antichrist, but certainly the spirit of Antichrist is at work in him and we see the devil’s kids are mandating rules and regulations that God’s children have to follow.”

Daubenmire: Obama Is The Devil's Son

“Coach” Dave Daubenmire, an Ohio-based Religious Right activist, called President Obama “the most unchristian president in the history of America” and the son of the devil on conservative radio show “Talkback with Chuck Wilder” on Tuesday.

Wilder asked Daubenmire about a recent column in which Daubenmire blasted the “demon,” “Son of Satan” “Bathhouse Barry Obama” for his administration’s recent directive on transgender rights in public schools, particularly calling out African-American pastors who have supported Obama because their “promotion of this demon simply based on skin color has contributed to the destruction of this nation.”

During the interview, Daubenmire suggested that Obama may be gay, which he has done in the past, and that Michelle Obama is “a tranny.”

“We spoke earlier in this program about some of the background of Obama, as to whether he was gay and whether his wife’s a tranny and all this kind of stuff, whether it’s tabloid stuff, who knows, but the fact that people are even talking about this ought to tell us something, Chuck,” Daubenmire said.

He attributed Obama’s interest in race issues and transgender rights to his need to serve “his father, the devil.”

Wilder asked Daubenmire about the theory that President Obama is secretly gay, citing the conspiracy theory clearinghouse WorldNetDaily as a “reliable” source of information on this topic, adding that every time he tries to look up information on it his computer crashes, a likely Obama administration plot.

Daubenmire replied that he is well-versed in this topic: “I know a lot more than I say. I mean, I know a lot about a lot of stuff, Chuck.”

I’ve never seen, not only with Obama but with Hillary, I have never seen such demonic, supernatural protection around them, like I’ve never seen. How can you explain all of the things that Hillary has clearly done, Chuck, and yet 40 percent of the people would consider voting for her? How could so much information be out there regarding the real nature of the Obamas and all that stuff — some of it not true, but it’s reached a point where it’s believable. We can believe that stuff, Chuck. And I just believe there’s a demonic protection around — you know the Scriptures say ‘Evil spirits in high places, that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but principalities and powers.’ Evil spirits in high places, and I happen to be a Christian man who believes that to be the truth and that there are kings and kingdoms that are ruling over the White House and over the Clinton family and over that establishment.

“We have a cultural war that’s going on, we would be downright foolish if we didn’t understand that there was demonic activity taking place in our very midst,” he added later in the program. “And the fact that the guy in the White House who claims to be a Christian yet does everything as non-Christian as a man could possibly do, and we think he’s dumb, we think, ‘Oh, how can that man be so stupid? How can he do those things?’ Chuck, listen, brother, this brother, this guy is of his father, the devil, the works of his father, he will do. Now how do I know that? The Scriptures tell us that. Jesus said to some people that he met, ‘You are of your father, the devil, and the works of your father, you will do.’”

Lafferty: Target & Hershey Are Now 'Pedophile Magnets And Pervert Magnets'

Andrea Lafferty, the anti-LGBT crusader who runs the Traditional Values Coalition, visited “Breitbart News Daily” this morning, where she warned parents not to “let your young girls and teen girls buy their summer clothes or bathing suits at Target” because of the company’s transgender-inclusive facilities policy.

She added that Target and Hershey Park have now become “pedophile magnets and pervert magnets” because they allow people to use the restroom of the gender with which they identify.

Lafferty then suggested that customers go into Target and fill up their shopping carts, go to the register, and say “Uh, I’m not going to buy this. Look at how much money I would have spent.’”

Jeffress: Pro-LGBT Businesses A Greater Threat Than ISIS

Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, praised his state’s leaders yesterday for refusing to comply with an Obama administration directive on facilities access for trans students in public schools, saying that “it’s time for an all-out rebellion against this absolute tyranny of the Obama administration.” He added that business interests pressuring lawmakers not to enact anti-LGBT measures are a greater “threat to freedom of religion in America” than ISIS.

Jeffress, a key Religious Right ally to Donald Trump, discussed the topic yesterday with Fox News commentator Todd Starnes, who was guest-hosting the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program.

Jeffress said that the U.S. needed to admit that “we are a country based on the Judeo-Christian foundation, and whether you’re Jewish or Christian, I mean, we believe that gender is something that is assigned by God.”

Recognition of transgender rights, he said, means that “we are headed toward chaos,” adding that “at the root of this is society’s rebellion against the plan of God, that’s what this is all about.”

Jeffress and Starnes praised Texas officials’ resistance to the administration’s directive, with Jeffress noting that Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick “often” worships at his church when he’s in Dallas.

“I think they’re going to stand firm on this and I hope that every governor of every state will have the guts to do that,” Jeffress said. “I think it’s time for an all-out rebellion against this absolute tyranny of the Obama administration.”

When Starnes noted that Mississippi has announced that it will comply with the administration guidelines, Jeffress laid the blame on the Chamber of Commerce and business interests, which he said were a greater threat to American liberties than ISIS.

“It comes down to money, Todd, that’s what it’s about,” he said. “And when states are being faced with the loss of business, they tend to fold real quickly. And I’ve said often that the greatest threat to freedom of religion in America is not ISIS, it’s the Chamber of Commerce. I mean, it’s the businesses that say to our representatives, ‘Oh, don’t pass laws like that, don’t pass these religious freedom laws because people will interpret that as anti-gay and we’ll lose business.’”

GOP Congressman Cites 'M*A*S*H' Character In Opposing Transgender Rights

In a speech at the Wisconsin Republican convention over the weekend, Rep. Glenn Grothman — no stranger to bizarre and offensive remarks — mocked Democratic support for transgender rights by citing a character in the T.V. show “M*A*S*H” who often dressed in women’s clothing in an attempt to be discharged from the Army.

Grothman closed his convention remarks by discussing “what is becoming of America right now” because “a lot of us see America changing a lot.” He read an excerpt from Charles Murray’s book “Coming Apart” that discusses a 1962 poll in which 86 percent of women said that they would not have premarital sex with someone they were going to marry.

This led him to transgender rights issues.

“Remember there was a show ‘M*A*S*H’ a while ago in which some, you know, one of the comedy guys was wearing a dress?” he said. “Hillary Clinton says one of the goals is to get the transgenders into the military. That’s one of the goals.”

Grothman concluded that “we do have a moral decline in our country,” adding that he prayed that the U.S. would “regain the moral bearings that we should have so that God continues to bless our great country.”

GOP Rep.: US Going 'Downhill' Thanks To Legal Contraception, LGBT Rights

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, blasted the Obama administration on Saturday for a new directive on transgender equality in public schools, joking that the administration won’t be satisfied until all students are “transgendered [sic] vegans” and lamenting a “downhill” descent in the United States that includes the Supreme Court rulings recognizing women’s right to access birth control.

King discussed the Obama administration letter to school districts in the “Caffeinated Thoughts Radio” podcast on Saturday, saying that “pranksters” in their last week of high school are probably “lined up right now” to take advantage of transgender rights to get into girls’ bathrooms.

Think of this: This is the last week of school for a lot of high school seniors. Some of these boys, especially, are a little rowdy when they’ve got their grades already in the bank and are just kind of waiting to go down and accept their diploma. … But, think of this, all over America, they’ve got to be lined up right now, the pranksters, going, ‘I’m going to go into the girls’ room,’ ‘I’m going,’ ‘I dare you,’ ‘Well, the two of us will go,’ ‘The three of us will go.’ There’s a line-up in some school right now and no school can discipline them because the federal government will come in with the Justice Department and jerk their No Child Left Behind funding.

He half-joked that the government would next announce that “‘We’re going to make you all vegans,’ transgendered [sic] vegans would satisfy them.”

“It’s the unhumorous humorous reality of how perverse our society has gotten under Barack Obama,” he added.

When asked if schools would resist the administration’s directive, King was pessimistic, saying that he had seen society “capitulate” to Supreme Court rulings on prayer in schools, abortion rights, and same-sex marriage, along with the court’s rulings in Griswold v. Connecticut and Eisenstaedt v. Baird, which established the right of married and unmarried people, respectively, to access birth control.

With all of these developments, King said, the U.S. has gone “downhill fast” as society has allowed the courts to “change the protocol of the civilization that goes back to Adam and Eve.”

Well, I was sitting [as] a freshman in high school when Murray vs. Curlett came down that ordered that there be no more prayer in the public schools. And I thought then, that was 1963, and I thought then, how are they going to stop us from praying in our schools? They could tape our mouths shut, that doesn’t do it. The only way they could stop us would be to empty the schools out. And in my mind’s eye, I can still see the images that were conjured up: two U.S. Army personnel standing there guarding the doors that were chained shut on our high school. … It was the image that came to mind, the only way to stop us from praying in public schools was to empty the schools out and guard them so we couldn’t sneak in and pray.

And, yet, what happened was, society capitulated to the command of the Supreme Court, and then we saw a watershed that went downhill: Roe v. Wade, Doe v. Bolton, Griswold v. Connecticut, Eisenstadt, on and on and on ... but we went downhill fast. And then you saw, we were all part of the battle against what our Iowa Supreme Court did when they commanded that there be same-sex marriage in Iowa, and then we saw the Supreme Court order, just create a new command in the United States Constitution. So now we’ve got to submit to five members of the Supreme Court and one president and simply let them change the protocol of the civilization that goes back to Adam and Eve? And I’m going to say, society will capitulate because they didn’t fight on marriage.

Listen to the full audio of the interview at Caffeinated Thoughts; the discussion with King begins at around the 3-minute mark.

Bryan Fischer: Maybe Texas Will Secede Over Obama's Demonic Transgender Directive

Among the Religious Right activists reacting calmly today to a reported Obama administration directive on transgender rights in schools was American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer, who said that the move showed that President Obama is “doing the devil’s work” and that it might prompt Texas to secede from the Union.

Fischer read from a passage in Revelation in which the devil goes down to the earth and “is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”

“So, again, I want to be clear, I’m not saying President Obama is the devil,” he said. “But is he doing the devil’s work? Yes. And he’s immitating the Enemy of our souls because he’s motivated by anger against America as founded, anger against the Judeo-Christian ideals that have founded and shaped this country, and he knows he’s running out of time.”

Later in the segment, a caller asked Fischer “what keeps the states from seceding from the Union and declaring their own government free from the United States with these executive orders.”

“The state of Texas is having their convention this weekend, their state convention, and there is a resolution that the Republican convention in the state of Texas is going to be voting on … about whether Texas ought to secede from the Union,” Fischer said, referring to a planned vote at this weekend’s state GOP convention . “And, trust me, after what President Obama has done today, there’s going to be a lot of energy behind that.”

Perkins: Impeach Obama Over Trans Kids Using The Bathroom

As we have been noting throughout the day, Religious Right leaders have not been reacting well to reports that the Obama administration will direct schools to allow transgender students to use the restroom corresponding with their gender identity.

After claiming that the president is “sacrificing children to advance an evil agenda” and is intentionally causing “social chaos,” Perkins told Fox News’ Todd Starnes today that Congress should launch impeachment proceedings against the president in retaliation:

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told me Congress must intervene to stop what he called an imperial president.

“If the president chooses to go forward with this outrageous order – then congress should begin impeachment proceedings,” he said.

Perkins said the decree should be “resisted with ever legal and moral instrument we have available to us in this country.”

“Every parent, every school board in America should absolutely refuse to sacrifice the safety of their children for the threat of taking away nine federal pennies that make up every educational dollar,” he said.

Starnes also quotes the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ronnie Floyd, who told him that the planned directive is “an outrageous attack on our Creator Himself, upon human sexuality and morality and a further advancement of the flagrant attack on religious freedom in our culture.”

Starnes added some thoughts of his own on the matter, comparing the transgender nondiscrimination directive to the challenges faced by executed anti-Nazi dissident Dietrich Bonhoeffer:

The time has come for all Americans to stand up and defy this president's immoral agenda. If losing federal funding is the price we must pay to protect women and children – then so be it.

We will not betray what we know to be true for the government’s 30 pieces of silver.

The German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer warned us about a time such as this. Not to speak is to speak, he once said. Not to act is to act.

Far too long American pulpits have remained silent on controversial cultural issues. Preachers don’t want to rock the boat. Parishioners don’t want to cause trouble. Far too long society has turned a blind eye as President Obama fundamentally transformed our nation.

But now the country stands at the edge of a great moral abyss. And we must ask ourselves -- do we defy the president and save the nation or do we keep the peace and sacrifice our children?

E.W. Jackson: 'Dictatorship Of The Sexual Proletariat' Committing 'Cultural Terrorism,' Leading Us To 'Moral Darkness'

E.W. Jackson, the Virginia pastor who was the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor in 2013, has a mild and reasonable response to a planned Obama administration directive on school restroom access for transgender students:

We are witnessing American society's descent into moral darkness. With each passing day we fall farther and faster into an abyss where truth and fixed ethical guideposts do not exist. It is the moral equivalent for the nation of the advanced stages of Alzheimer's for an individual, when the victim forgets his own identity.

When an educated and articulate United States Attorney General stands before the public and says that the long held expectation that males and females use specifically designated restrooms is a mere "pretext" for discrimination, we have fallen through the rabbit hole. When the President dictates bathroom policy for the entire public school system, we are witnessing official delusion at the highest level.

The news media, once thought of as guardians of truth, have surrendered to the censors and propagandists. Journalists are supposed to be fair to both sides of an issue. Instead, as with climate change, many reporters have sided with the speech authoritarians to deny a platform to those who disagree.

...

We want to teach our children Judeo-Christian morality, which by the way does not entail hatred of people who live differently. We want to be left alone to live our lives, and we want to leave others alone to live theirs. Unfortunately, that will never be enough for the cultural communists. They want a dictatorship of the sexual proletariat, and all must adhere or be punished. Christians have been fired from their jobs, driven from their businesses, dragged into court, fined and even put in jail. This is cultural terrorism, sanitized of explicit violence, but nonetheless using fear to force conformity.

We must vehemently oppose it, but have compassion for the people trapped in the modern sexual liberation movement. They are indeed victims, but of indoctrination, not discrimination. Only a Third Great Awakening will bring our society out of this confusion. America was founded on the solid rock of self-evident truths, but in the modern age the Creator of truth is being rejected. We have forgotten who we are and why we are a shining city on a hill. May the moral darkness that threatens to enslave us give way to the light of truth that has always made us free.

Daubenmire: 'Sodomy-Focused Army' Trying To 'Ramrod Sexual Anarchy Down The Throats Of Mainstream America'

“Coach” Dave Daubenmire defended Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore in a column yesterday, praising the anti-LGBT justice for standing up to the “judicial tyranny” that is “breaking out all across America” as “sexual deviants” have created a “sodomy-focused army” to “ram-rod sexual anarchy down the throats of mainstream America.”

Moore was suspended last week over charges that he violated judicial ethics when he flouted federal court rulings on marriage equality.

Daubenmire directs readers to a website maintained by far-right activist Matt Trewhella, who urges state and local officials to defy the federal courts on issues that violate what they interpret as God’s law.

Judicial tyranny is breaking out all across America, as Obama’s Justice Department is being used to “fundamentally transform” this nation. This transformation is being accomplished by the out-of-control oligarchy currently masquerading as a court system.

I have a stunner to share with you…but let me lay some ground work for you.

“Transgender” restrooms are all of the rage in America today. In fact, they have become so important to the sexual deviants that it has now garnered the support of the Obama administration, as they try to ram-rod sexual anarchy down the throats of mainstream America.

This fight is not about restrooms, although that is the avenue that they have chosen to drive their legal bulldozers down in their attempt to change the landscape of America. This sodomy-focused army is hell-bent on removing all sexual standards in this nation. Their blitzkrieg through the courts would rival the cultural destruction of Sherman’s march to the sea.

And it is built upon a lie…a Two-Card Monty …that would make even the world’s greatest magicians envious…and they have been able to pull it off in full view of the brain-dead American people.

Here is the skinny. Sodomy-based marriage is not now, nor has it ever been, legal. It is a lie. As I will show you in just a few sentences, it is the all-time greatest legal sleight of hand ever pulled in any society…ever.

Judge Roy Moore is standing on solid ground. We must awaken Americans to the sham that five unelected judges have pulled on this nation. This is tyranny at its most egregious.

Tony Perkins: Trans Bathroom Directive Meant To Cause 'Social Chaos,' Destroy A Generation

Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, is reacting with characteristic calm to the planned Obama administration directive on schools letting students use the restroom that matches their gender identity.

Last night, Perkins wrote on Twitter that the Obama administration is “sacrificing children to advance an evil agenda”:

He followed up his tweet with a fundraising email today warning that the directive is all part of a plan to “break down all sexual inhibition and morality,” cause “social chaos” and “destroy Christian morality, religious freedom, and the next generation”:

FRC has a plan to counteract this outrage, and you are part of it . But first, let me explain why public school restrooms have become "Ground Zero" in the effort to destroy Christian morality, religious freedom, and the next generation, using "gender identity" as a weapon.

Let's answer some of the most pressing questions I am often asked:

QUESTION: "Why is the Obama administration trying to mainstream 'transgenderism' and force schools to accommodate students who want to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex?

ANSWER: It's all part of a radical movement trying to destroy the fact that God created man and woman -- and that somehow people can choose what gender they want to be. The ultimate goal is to break down all sexual inhibition and morality -- a goal that would result in social chaos.

And the only way they can pull off this scheme? Big government .

Think of it. If government can force the "normalization" or even the celebration of something as universally unnatural as men using women's restrooms and vice versa, then it can force the rest of its agenda on the American people very easily.

And consider this, if the White House can dictate the bathroom policies of the nation, then what is beyond its reach? The answer is absolutely nothing.

QUESTION: "Do you think that the ultimate goal is to destroy the impact of Christianity in our country?"

ANSWER: Definitely, yes.

Christianity is a hindrance to what the secularists in the Obama administration and "Progressive" special interest groups ultimately want to do.

QUESTION: "The federal government . . . state governments . . . municipalities . . . even corporations and pro sports teams seem to be pushing special rights based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Can we really turn back the tide?"

ANSWER: Yes! We can and will if we have the courage to take a stand and call this foolishness what it is. But we are at a point where Christians have to lose their fear of what other people say -- or do.

Family Research Council: DOJ Defending Trans Rights Is 'Fascistic'

This week the U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against the state of North Carolina over the now-notorious HB2, which overturned local civil rights protections for LGBT people and banned transgender people from using public bathrooms that match their gender identity. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch explained that the law violates federal laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex and gender identity, and creates state-sponsored discrimination against transgender people.

Lynch placed the current controversy in the historical context of other forms of state-sponsored discrimination, appealing to the people of North Carolina, “Let us write a different story this time. Let us not act out of fear and misunderstanding, but out of the values of inclusion, diversity and regard for all that make our country great.”

Not surprisingly, the Family Research Council doesn’t exactly see it that way. Senior Vice President Rob Schwarzwalder says in his “Social Conservative Review” this week that the Obama administration’s actions to “crush the government of North Carolina’s efforts to preserve privacy and security in public bathrooms, changing rooms, and showers” represent an “essentially fascistic approach to law and policy — the banning of dissent.”

Earlier in the week FRC praised North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory’s “political courage and moral clarity” for the state’s own lawsuit against the DOJ. Said FRC’s Tony Perkins, “It’s time for Republicans in Congress, who have the constitutional authority as a coequal branch of government, to bring the imperial White House under control.”

Schwarzwalder appealed to a higher power — not Donald Trump:

The federal government is a servant, not a master. Americans are citizens, not subjects. The Tenth Amendment, reserving to the states those things not specifically assigned by the Constitution to the federal government, remains in force.

Those are the principles upon which conscientious men and women have always stood in our country. To abandon them is to abandon liberty. And to abandon liberty is to abandon America.

May God give us the grace and strength never to accede to such a sordid, tragic betrayal of our historic commitment to and movement toward liberty and justice for all.

 

NC Lt. Gov: Trans People Want To 'Trample On' The Rights Of '99.9 Percent' Of People

Dan Forest, the lieutenant governor of North Carolina and an outspoken advocate of the state’s new anti-LGBT law, joined American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer yesterday to discuss the Justice Department’s civil rights lawsuit against the state.

Forest alleged yet again that it is really the Justice Department and LGBT rights advocates who are being discriminatory in opposing the bill, which among other provisions bars transgender people from using the public restroom that matches their gender identity.

“In trying to appease that community and trying to say that they are trying to not discriminate against them, what they did was really open up the law and they’re discriminating against 99.9 percent of the people out there, all the women and children who don’t have a say in this,” he said.

“Vulnerable women and daughters and granddaughters, they have civil rights too,” Fischer responded, “and that seems to be what’s being forgotten by the Obama administration here, is the civil right of females to be safe in bathrooms and locker rooms and shower rooms.”

“Exactly,” Forest said, “you can’t have one person’s rights trample on top of another person’s rights, and that’s really what they’re trying to do here. In fact, it’s the vast minority who would be trampling on the vast majority of women and kids out there, so they have a real conflict on their hands, certainly, with these lawsuits.”

We can’t help but point out the irony that Forest chose Fischer’s program to claim that the LGBT rights movement is discriminatory.

The lieutenant governor told Fischer that he hopes that Congress will “get engaged on multiple fronts” in response to what he called the Obama administration’s “extortion” of the state and “holding our kids hostage with our own money.”

“I think Congress should get involved there because they create the purse strings, they’re the ones that give the funding, I believe they need to have hearings on this, into the Justice Department, the Transportation Department and HUD so that we can get this thing set straight,” he said.

Anti-LGBT Activists 'Testing' Target By Sending Men Into Women's Rooms

UPDATED 

It turns out that anti-LGBT activists are right that men are taking advantage of a transgender-inclusive policy at Target to go into women’s restrooms — and those men are anti-LGBT activists.

In an interview this morning with “Breitbart News Daily,” the American Family Association's director of governmental affairs, Sandy Rios, said that activists have been “testing” Target’s policy by sending men into women’s rooms at the retail chain.

Rios' group has been leading a boycott of Target after the company said it would allow transgender people to use the restroom that matches their gender identity, which it claims will lead to open season for “sexual predators.”

The program’s host, Stephen Bannon, contended that rather than being inclusive, Target is “trying to exclude people who are decent, hard-working people who don’t want their four-year-old daughter to have to go into a bathroom with a guy with a beard in a dress.”

“I think there’s no question that when you say that there are no barriers in the bathroom,” Rios said, “and that if men or women feel like they are men or women, the opposition of however they are equipped, and you have no restrictions, the net effect will be that people will not be stopped. We’ve already had people testing this, going into Targets and men trying to go into bathrooms. There is absolutely no barrier.”

“And so the chief concern,” she continued, “even more than just, I think, trauma, certainly for little girls of having men dressed like women coming in their bathrooms, the chief concern of the American Family Association is the predators who will take advantage.”

UPDATE: AFA says that it is not in fact sending men into women’s changing areas:

'These Freaks Are Going To Get Us All Killed': Rick Wiles Warns Target Restroom Policy Will Spark Nuclear War

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.

Reading from a Business Insider article about an increase in Russian submarine activity, Wiles connected the dots.

“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.”

Wiles has told Trunews listeners in the past that thanks to gay rights activism, the U.S. could get destroyed by a nuclear strike from North Korea.

NC Lt. Gov. Complains Of 'Amazing Smear Campaign...Based On A Bunch Of Lies'

North Carolina’s Republican lieutenant governor, Dan Forest, hit back at critics of his state’s new radical anti-LGBT law in a radio interview yesterday, saying that the state has been hit by “a pretty amazing smear campaign” when all legislators were trying to do was “protect women and children from predators and sexual offenders and so forth going into bathrooms freely.”

Forest responded earlier this month to PayPal’s decision to cancel a planned expansion in North Carolina in response to the law, which among other things blocks transgender people from using the public restroom of their identifying gender, by saying that if the law protects “the life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it.”

He continued that theme in an interview yesterday with Relevant Radio host Drew Mariani, saying that North Carolina has been the victim of “a pretty amazing smear campaign” that’s “all based on a bunch of lies.”

The whole thing, he said, was the fault of LGBT rights activists and the Charlotte City Council, whose nondiscrimination ordinance was overturned by the state law.

“They knew that the General Assembly in North Carolina was going to have to do something about it,” he said, “they were going to have to fight it constitutionally, but more importantly they were going to have to protect women and children from predators and sexual offenders and so forth going into bathrooms freely.”

Of course, there have been zero cases of child predators using LGBT nondiscrimination laws to assault children.

North Carolina Activist Slams 'Social Terrorists' Opposing Anti-LGBT Law

Mark Creech, who as the head of the Christian Action League of North Carolina has been a leading proponent of the state’s new law mandating discrimination against transgender people , wrote on his group’s website this weekend that LGBT rights advocates opposing the law are “social terrorists” using “totalitarian tactics.”

North Carolina, Creech wrote, “has had its name maligned about as bad as calling a virgin a whore” when it was simply trying to “rise up and take the whip from the task masters [sic] hand.”

To smear someone means to sully, vilify, or soil a good reputation. It carries with it the idea of smudging or blurring the truth.

Since the North Carolina General Assembly passed HB 2, my beloved state has had its name maligned about as bad as calling a virgin a whore. The state has certainly been as innocent.

But who is interested in the truth when a leftist media, celebrities, sports organizations, and various corporate entities are crying out, “bigot,” “hater,” “homophobe,” etc. When you sling mud it sticks. It doesn’t have to be true. People move away as fast as a Jew did in Bible times from possible contact with a leper whenever hearing, “unclean, unclean.”

Thank you. Well said, Governor. Still, figuratively speaking, don’t expect these social terrorists like the HRC to let-up on the pressure. There is no meaningful dialogue with them, only total domination. They are an unbending, immovable, aggressive, insistent force that would have every norm and moral turned on its head – every objection to their way vilified, penalized, fined, and criminalized by law.

Even though some big businesses have come out against the Tar Heel state, threatening to leave or not to bring their companies as promised because of HB 2, in a way they’re victims of HRC’s totalitarian tactics too.

Nevertheless, there is only so long one can get away with coercing people into submission. Eventually they will rise up and take the whip from the task masters hand. For the present, that appears to be happening in states like Mississippi and my own, North Carolina.

So call us names. Smear our state’s character. Listen to the parrots of political correctness. Heed the heavy hand of the HRC, if you will. Eventually, the truth will win out and the fog of a million lies will ebb away in the brightness of God’s light.

Peroutka Aide Charged In Connection With Deceptive Anti-LGBT Robocall

Back in 2014, we watched with amazement as Michael Peroutka, the head of the Christian Reconstructionist group Institute on the Constitution and a former board member of the southern secessionist League of the South, won a local election to be a county councilman in his home county in Maryland.

After Peroutka’s victory, the news broke that an unidentified group that called itself “Marylanders for Transgenders” had sent out robocalls in the final days of the campaign asking voters to call Peroutka’s openly gay Democratic opponent, Patrick Armstrong, to “thank him for his bravery in coming out of the closet” and for supporting a bill that means “transgenders can now openly and freely go into any bathroom of their choice based on their confused gender identity.” The call provided the home phone number of Armstrong’s mother.

At the time, Peroutka denied that his campaign was behind the calls, but today his campaign manager, Dennis Fusaro, was charged with violating election laws by secretly placing the calls. The Baltimore Sun reports:

Maryland's state prosecutor on Thursday charged two Republican strategists with distributing an illegal robocall considered by many an attempt to smear an openly gay local candidate in 2014.

Prosecutor Emmet Davitt announced charges against Dennis Fusaro, a national Republican figure best known for leaking internal emails and phone calls from Ron Paul's 2012 presidential campaign, and Stephen Waters, a Republican political consultant based in Virginia.

Prosecutors said the call lacked the appropriate identification and came from what they described as "an untraceable" prepaid cell phone purchased with cash by Waters and Fusaro at Walmart in Fredericksburg, Va.

Fusaro was the campaign manager of Armstrong's opponent, Republican Councilman Michael Anthony Peroutka, a former member of the neo-Confederate group League of the South.

Christopher Kachouroff, attorney for Fusaro and Waters, would not say whether his clients were responsible for the call, but dubbed its message "political satire."

Peroutka continues to say that he had “no prior knowledge” of the robocall.

Listen to the call:

Cruz Endorser John Zmirak: LGBT People 'Fundamentally Dissatisfied With The Way God Made Them'

Conservative columnist John Zmirak, whose endorsement Ted Cruz proudly posted on his presidential campaign website last month, reacted last week to a controversial anti-trans law in North Carolina by writing a column titled “There’s a Bearded Trannie in the Stall Next to Your Daughter and You’d Better Learn to Like It.”

Zmirak’s perceptive thoughts on this issue naturally earned him invitations from a few conservative radio hosts to discuss it further. In an interview yesterday with Steve Deace, an influential Iowa radio host and fellow Cruz supporter, Zmirak insisted that laws targeting transgender people won’t affect transgender people as long as they “make some attempt to alter their appearance.” He also claimed that the “gay lobby” will never be satisfied because they’re “fundamentally dissatisfied with the way God made them.”

“It boils down to this,” Zmirak said. “The gay lobby will never be satisfied. They cannot be satisfied because they’re fundamentally dissatisfied with the way God made them. They are in rebellion and they’re in permanent rebellion. It is literally impossible to satisfy the gay lobby because even if you give them everything they want, they will be just as miserable and just as angry, because it’s not about politics, it’s about them struggling and suffering because their lifestyles are out of accord with natural law.”

He went on to claim that a law like North Carolina’s wouldn’t actually affect transgender people. “Of the people who identify as transgender,” he said, “most of them make some attempt to alter their appearance so that really nobody would know their sex going into the bathroom. They’re wearing a wig, you know, maybe that’s just an ugly woman. So these bills, these laws that make bathrooms gender neutral are designed specifically for men who dress as men to go into the women’s room, women who dress as women to go into the men’s room. What is that about? It’s about undermining the idea of heteronormativity.”

LGBT people, he said, “can’t stand the fact that they’re 2 percent of the population, they want to convince us that they’re actually 30 or 40 percent, that everyone’s secretly a little gay, and that is to assuage their sense of guilt, their sense that they are violating natural law. Natural law is the law that God wrote on our hearts, which even pagans, if they use their reason, can see.”

In a separate interview with Pennsylvania talk radio host Bobby Gunther Walsh on Monday, Zmirak said that the LGBT movement is pushing its messages in schools because “they want to make sure that as many people end up gay as possible,” which he said showed the movement’s “incredible intolerance.”
