Kirk Cameron Will Win The War On Christmas With His Latest Movie

After making a “documentary” about how America needs to return to the values of the Pilgrims, Kirk Cameron is now starring in a film about the “War on Christmas.”

Cameron told Glenn Beck’s outlet The Blaze that he seeks to save the holiday from a barrage of attacks from those who seek to “snuff out the holy root” Christmas.

But don’t worry, he insists that the movie is not an “angry rant about the culture war.”

Cameron, who is also one of the film’s stars, told TheBlaze that he decided to make “Saving Christmas” to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season, while also pushing back against those who wish to “snuff out [the holiday's] holy root.”

“Christmas is probably my favorite time of year,” he said. “It seems to be the time of year when even cranky, grumpy people seem to be touched by the spirit of generosity and kindness and brotherly love and I know that that ultimately stems from the true reason for the season, which is Christ.”

Cameron continued, “It’s obvious that there is a deliberate attempt to snuff out the holy root that has produced all this wonderful Christmas-time fruit. I think it’s about time someone spoke out and made a movie about this.”

The “Growing Pains” actor, who has gone on to direct and produce numerous faith-themed films, said that atheist activists’ attempts to diminish the true nature of the holiday by taking aim at nativities and other symbols of faith amounts to political correctness run amok.

“[It is] offensive to 90 percent of people in our country who want to see nativity scenes and who know the birth of the Christ child is the fundamental root of Christianity, which is the ideology that built this country,” Cameron said.

“Saving Christmas” isn’t an “angry rant about the culture war,” he said. Instead, it’s a celebration of the holiday and of the Christian faith.

Ted Nugent Loves Insane Pastor James David Manning's Racist Rant

What a surprise that Ted Nugent is a fan of the extremist Harlem pastor who has made a name for himself with his insane anti-Obama rants and calls to kill gay people. Nugent posted excerpts of a James David Manning sermon on his Facebook page today, commenting (in all caps, of course), “TRUER LOVE THERE HAS NEVER BEEN.”

“You niggas are crazy,” Manning says about black voters who supported Obama in the sermon posted by Nugent. “We’re not going to ever get anywhere until we get in the mind of a black man, he doesn’t think correctly, he can be doctor, he can be an astrophysicist, the nigga ain’t got no sense.”

“The worst thing that ever happened to South Africa was when they gave it to Nelson Mandela and black folk,” he added. “Black folk don’t know how to run no nation.”

Kevin Sorbo And Rick Wiles Agree: Atheists Are Angry Because They Know God Exists

D-list actor Kevin Sorbo recently had a leading role in the right-wing Christian film "God Is Not Dead," in which he played a smug atheist college professor who seeks to destroy the faith of his students.

In promoting the film, which is now out on DVD, Sorbo has been making the rounds on Christian television and radio programs, saying that he based his portrayal in the film on all the angry and bitter atheists that he is always seeing on television.

Yesterday, Sorbo was a guest on End Times fanatic Rick Wiles' radio program, where the two concluded that atheists are so angry because they secretly know that God does exist and hate him for "judging how they live their life."

Sorbo said he doesn't understand why atheists are so "filled with just hatred and anger," saying that he feels sorry for them but also can't help but laugh at them for spending "so much time ranting and raving about something that they don't believe in."

Wiles agreed, saying that he doesn't "believe in the Tooth Fairy but I don't spend all my time from trying to stop people from believing in the Tooth Fairy."

Of course, one could just as well make the same point in response to Sorbo and Wiles, noting that while they don't believe in atheism, they sure do seem to be spending a lot of time ranting and raving about it.

In the end, both Wiles and Sorbo agreed that the real reason atheists are so angry is because, deep down, they know that God exists.

"The truth is," Wiles said, "they know he exists and they hate him. That's what it's all about."

"That is exactly what it is," Sorbo responded. "I know these guys must believe in something, otherwise they wouldn't get so angry about it and they don't like the fact that there is a higher power out there that is judging how they live their life":

Tony Perkins Praises Strict Gun Laws … In Israel

There is a trend among Religious Right activists to cheer on Israel’s policies towards the Palestinian territories while conveniently ignoring other Israeli programs, such as government subsidies for abortion coverage.

But on his radio show “Washington Watch” yesterday, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins went all in to praise an Israeli domestic policy that is at odds with what American conservatives are pushing at home, hailing Israeli gun laws and saying that Israeli cities are much safer than their American counterparts.

Does this mean that Perkins, of all people, is now a supporter of Israel’s very strict gun laws? Or does he just not understand what he’s talking about?

Back in 2012, the Washington Post attempted to clear up American conservatives’ “long-held misunderstanding of Israeli gun laws.”

The only problem is that Israel actually has quite strong gun restrictions and very low gun ownership rates, some of the lowest in the developed world. This confusion has gotten so bad that even Israeli government officials are now chiming in to knock back the claims, though the NRA is seen as a close ally of the U.S. Republican party, which positions itself as strongly backing Israel.



Israeli guns laws, it turns out, are much stricter than America's gun laws. This may help explain why Israeli gun ownership is just one thirteenth of what it is in the U.S. To bring that number into focus, it would likely be even lower if not for mandatory military service, which means Israelis are more likely to be familiar with guns. Israel's unique security challenges and its periodic bouts with terrorism would also seem to bolster an NRA-style case for allowing more privately owned guns so that more citizens can defend themselves. And yet, there are far fewer guns in private citizens' hands, and far less gun crime.

Truth In Action Ministries: Gays Run Public Schools

The right-wing group Truth In Action Ministries is out with a new film warning parents that public schools are run by gay rights activists who are out to destroy religious freedom. The film features such experts as radio talk show host Janet Parshall and conservative legal activists Greg Baylor and Dee Wampler.

“So, mom and dad, if you have a school district where in fact they are introducing pernicious ideas that are antithetical to the word of God, then you are going to ask yourself who you are going to serve: Mammon or God,” Parshall asks.

Wampler, for his part, quotes Patrick Henry in urging students to refuse to complete class assignments dealing with gay rights issues, which she alleged violate their First Amendment rights.

Alabama GOP Chairman: Obama Is A Sociopath, Probably

We last checked in with Alabama Republican Chairman Bill Armistead during the 2012 presidential campaign, when he was promoting the bizarre alternate birther theory that President Obama’s real father was labor organizer Frank Marshall Davis. Armistead had picked up the idea from a smear film made by right-wing filmmaker Joel Gilbert, and was very impressed, saying he had “verified that it is factual, all of it.”

Now, Armistead has gotten on board with another fringe right-wing theory about President Obama, this time echoing Wayne Allyn Root’s suggestion that the president might actually be a diagnosable sociopath because of the fact that he was on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard last week.

In an email on Monday, Armistead approvingly cited Root’s most recent column to ask, "Is Obama a sociopath?

Elsewhere in Root’s article, Armistead will have learned the activist’s signature theory that President Obama picked up a secret plan to destroy America while attending Columbia University, while simultaneously never attending Columbia classes.

Armistead is not the first GOP leader to take a shine to Root’s unhinged anti-Obama activism: Root campaigned for Mississippi Tea Party Senate candidate Chris McDaniel this summer, where he speculated that Obama “cut his Afro” in order to become an anti-American “Manchurian candidate.”

Flip Benham: Homosexuality Is Satan's 'Pink-Colored Glove'

On last week’s edition of the “Faith & Liberty” radio program, Flip Benham of the extremist right-wing group Operation Save America spoke with host Dave Garrison about the allegedly demonic trinity of legal abortion, LGBT rights, and Islam.

Benham characterized the Religious Right’s opposition to reproductive rights, LGBT equality and the free exercise rights of Muslims as a consolidated effort to win in a “gospel battle” against Satan.

Benham even threw together a helpful analogy to properly identify evil wherever it may lurk. He explained that homosexuality, abortion and Islam represent different incarnations of “the devil’s fist.” While “the homosexual agenda is the pink-colored glove” covering “the fist of the Devil,” abortion is Satan’s “crimson glove stained with the blood of almost 60 million little baby boys and girls.” Islam, simply enough, is “the black glove of death” that Satan uses to keep its followers trapped in “bondage.”

Later, Benham surmised that the three issues are “three of the greatest physical manifestations of the battle between two seeds – the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman.”

He lamented that while the Religious Right has been successful in rolling back reproductive health rights throughout the country, they still have their work cut out for them as far as LGBT rights are concerned. “It’s the same battle, it’s the same fist, we’re fighting the Devil and his lies in the world and the flesh, and moving it to a thing called the homosexual agenda – and it’s the Devil’s agenda.”

Fischer: Valerie Jarrett Ordered Bin Laden Raid Without Even Consulting President Obama

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer eagerly helped spread the emerging right-wing narrative that murdered journalist James Foley could have easily been rescued but President Obama was too busy playing golf to approve the rescue mission in time to save him.

But in Fischer's telling, the tale grew even more bizarre when he then asserted that it was really White House advisor Valerie Jarrett who ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and did so without even telling President Obama.

"The best information we have," Fischer stated, "is that Valerie Jarrett pulled the trigger and told the Seal Team Six 'you got to go in and get him.' It was Valerie Jarrett that said 'look, we have an opportunity here, we can't afford to pass up this opportunity. I'm not even going to consult with Barack Obama. I'm not even going to consult with the president on this one, he's out playing golf, I'm just going to give the go signal' ... So Valerie Jarrett was functioning as the de facto Commander in Chief":

While this bizarre theory plays into Fischer's long-held belief that President Obama was so uninvolved in the Bin Laden raid that he had to be Photoshopped into the iconic photo of the situation room, it rather conflicts with the other right-wing conspiracy theory that it was Jarrett who repeatedly thwarted attempts to capture or kill Bin Laden.

That claim is not true either, but Fischer ought to at least try a little harder to get his conspiracy theories straight.

Pat Robertson: Possibly Gay Teenager Will Be Straight If He Has A Man In His Life

On today’s edition of the “700 Club,” a viewer told Robertson that her 13-year-old step-son, who “lives with his mother most of the time,” has “crushes on boys” and wanted the televangelist’s help.

Repeating the myth that homosexuality is the result of a lack of parental bonding, Robertson said “his attraction is now toward other men because he’s raised by a woman.”

“I would get him male companions, I’d get him some man to help him, some mentor, someone who cares about young men,” Robertson advised. “He is being raised by a single woman and that is skewing his orientation.”

Klingenschmitt 'Apologizes' For Accusing Rep. Jared Polis Of Wanting To Join ISIS & Behead Christians

Over the weekend, Gordon Klingenschmitt, the demon-obsessed anti-gay exorcist who is the GOP nominee for a seat in the Colorado legislature, sent out an email from his Pray In Jesus Name organization in which he declared that gay Democratic congressman Jared Polis would soon be aligning himself with ISIS and begin beheading Christians here in America:

“The openly homosexual Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) introduced a revised bill to force Christian employers and business owners to hire and promote homosexuals with ZERO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS for Christians who want to opt out.

“Polis ‘wants sexual orientation and gender identity treated the same way as race, religion, sex, and national origin, when it comes to employment protections,’ claims the Advocate, under the headline “Polis trims ENDA’s religious exemption.

“Dr. Chaps’ comment: The open persecution of Christians is underway. Democrats like Polis want to bankrupt Christians who refuse to worship and endorse his sodomy. Next he’ll join ISIS in beheading Christians, but not just in Syria, right here in America.”

Needless to say, that comment did not sit well with Democratic or Republican leaders in Colorado who quickly denounced Klingenschmitt:

The accusation prompted Mark Ferrandino, Speaker of the Colorado House, to condemn the remarks and demand that Colorado Republicans do the same.

“I call on Ryan Call and other Republicans to denounce Mr. Klingenschmitt and his homophobic, extreme, and slanderous attacks against Congressman Polis,” said Ferrandino in a statement.

GOP officials in Colorado have disowned Klingenschmitt before and this time was no different.

“As Chairman Call has said in the past, Gordon does not speak on behalf of the Republican Party, and his comments in no way reflect the views of the Party. Gordon needs to give a sincere apology,” said Owen Loftus, a Colorado GOP spokesman, in a statement.

In response, Klingenschmitt filmed a video in which he half-heartedly apologized, saying that he was merely using hyperbole and "some Democrats do not have a sense of humor," before dumping a bucket of water on his head as he challenged Polis, as well as Ferrandino and Call, to take the ALS #IceBucketChallenge:

Kevin Swanson: LGBT Nondiscrimination Laws May Protect Murderers And Rapists

Colorado pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson is quite proud of the Pennsylvania bridal shop that denied service to a lesbian couple this month, and Swanson spoke with his “Generations Radio” co-host Bill Jack today about the need for more businesses to stand up to gays and lesbians. If not, Swanson warned, then shops will soon be forced to honor murderers, rapists, animal abusers and pedophiles.

A lesbian couple shopping for wedding dresses are “not unlike serial killers walking into a trophy shop requesting a plaque that indicates the accomplishments of the serial killer,” Swanson said. He then warned that organizations like Toastmasters may be forced to give speeches honoring rapists or groups like NAMBLA may coerce Chuck E. Cheese restaurants into hosting “a party involving eight to twelve-year-old boys from Thailand.”

Jack added: “Maybe somebody comes in and they want to celebrate torturing puppies and they want it photographed by a photographer.”

Swanson added that gays want to punish and torture anyone who disagrees with them like the North Korean regime: “You want the kind of enthusiasm you get out of the North Korean crowds when the premier shows up, if anybody isn’t yelling and screaming then they’re going to be tortured. That’s the way homosexuals handle their homosexuality, once they’re out of the closet, if everybody isn’t enthusiastic, you better be yelling and screaming and bringing the party favors.”

Trent Franks: Obama Not 'Motivated Enough' By 'Pure Humanity'

Five years after declaring President Obama an “ enemy of humanity,” Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) is now claiming that Obama failed to stop the rise of ISIS because he “doesn’t seem motivated enough on the basis of pure humanity to do what’s necessary to defend the innocent from the malevolent.”

Franks made the remarks in an interview Friday with Concerned Women for America, in which he claimed that Obama failed to heed his warnings about the persecution of Christians in the Middle East.

Why Are 'Sexual Radicals' Accusing Poor Matt Barber, Rick Scarborough And Daniel Lapin of Being Anti-Gay?

In the latest installment of the right-wing victimhood saga, the Illinois-based World Congress of Families has released an open letter accusing “sexual radicals” of launching a “smear campaign” against them in advance of a planned conference in Melbourne later this week.

“Sexual radicals have launched a smear campaign to discredit the Melbourne conference, which misrepresents the international pro-family movement and the positions of the World Congress of Families,” the letter says. “Specifically, it is alleged that advocacy of the natural (or normative) family is somehow unfair to other families and that we ‘shame’ single-parent families, homosexual ‘couples’ and the divorced.” (Scare quotes in the original.)

"The goal of sexual radicals is to deconstruct marriage and marginalize the family, and thus to transform society into something unrecognizable to generations past," the letter continues. "Like all social experiments that attempt to create a 'new man,' these are doomed to failure."

Yes, who could accuse the signers of the letter of shaming LGBT people? Among the 80 signatories are such notable LGBT allies as Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber, who started his very own website to publish off-the-charts anti-gay vitriol; Rabbi Daniel Lapin, who has said that homosexuality is a form of “barbarism”; Russian World Congress of Families activists Alexei Komov and Pavel Parfentiev, who have cheered on their country’s new spate of anti-gay laws; and Rick Scarborough, who claims that AIDS is God’s punishment for homosexuality.

Also joining the defense of the World Congress of Families are the Family Research Council’s Patrick Fagan, the National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown, former House majority leader Tom Delay, the Alliance Defending Freedom’s Benjamin Bull, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, along with a number of international allies of WCF.

Meanwhile, the Human Rights Campaign has just released a new report detailing WCF’s support for repressive anti-gay laws throughout the world.

David Barton: Obama, Kerry Won't Fight Terrorism Because Of Their Support For Abortion Rights

On today's "WallBuilders Live" radio program, David Barton and Rick Green invited Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert on on to discuss America’s role in the Mideast. Barton declared that "terrorism was really on the ropes" before President Obama removed the last U.S. troops from Iraq, but now "terrorism has really rebuilt itself ... [because] this has been an administration that has not done a good job of trying to take terrorists down or take terrorism out."

Barton and co-host Green repeatedly expressed their desire to have someone like Gohmert serving as president instead of President Obama because, they said, Gohmert understands the difference between good and evil, which Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and the rest of the administration can never grasp because they support abortion rights and gay marriage.

"I don't know why that Louie [Gohmert] would think that John Kerry has any moral equivalency given the position that John Kerry holds on marriage, on homosexuality, on abortion, on religious conscience, on religious expressions," Barton said. "I mean, since he opposes everything that's traditionally moral, why would there be a question of whether he's moral" when it comes to terrorism?

While Barton said that he was being a little facetious, Green replied that he was absolutely correct because "if [Kerry is] so wrong on all these other clear moral issues, how can we expect him to figure this one out."

"If you're wrong on an issue as simple as innocent life, then you have real trouble with guilty life as well," Barton explained. "When you take an unborn child this is innocent life and he doesn't think that that's right and wrong to take the life of an innocent unborn child, then when you see something like Hamas, which is guilty people who are murderers being taken out, he thinks that that's abominable."

"His whole value system is skewed," Barton concluded, "and that's the way so much of this administration has been," which is why it has been wrong on everything from economic policy, social policy, and foreign policy.

"You just can't be a world leader if you don't believe that certain things are right and certain things are wrong":

J. Christian Adams: DOJ Civil Rights Attorneys Are 'Rancid, Rotted, Corrupt Racialists'

Former Bush administration Justice Department official J. Christian Adams has made a career out of attacking Attorney General Eric Holder for his civil rights policies, which Adams sees as “race-obsessed.”

So, it’s unsurprising that Adams has been making the rounds in the right-wing media to claim that the Ferguson protests are all part of a plan by the Obama administration to divide Americans based on race in order to win the coming midterm elections.

In an interview with Newsmax on Friday, Adams showed particular contempt for the lawyers in the Justice Department’s civil rights division (where he worked under Bush), who he accused of being “anti-police, racially saturated, paranoid lawyers” and “rancid, rotted, corrupt racialists” who are incapable of acting in an unbiased manner because they recognize that racism exists.

“They think that the deck is stacked against African Americans everywhere, that you can’t get a fair shake in the criminal justice system, that people act with a racial intent all the time,” Adams said with derision. “These are people who think totally differently from most Americans.”

Anti-Gay Pastor: LGBT Non-Discrimination Bill Legalizes Pedophilia, Destroys 'Freedom As We Know It'

During a Friday interview with the Tea Party News Network, Stacy Swimp, a Michigan pastor and anti-gay activist, denounced an effort in the Michigan state legislature to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the state’s civil rights law, which already bars discrimination based on factors such as race, religion, sex, weight and marital status.

Speaking with Tim Constantine of “The Capitol Hill Show,” Swimp alleged that “frauds” in both the Democratic and Republican parties are “set against Christian liberty, our Christian right of freedom of expression and conscience.”

“We need to make sure that we are doing everything we can to stop them from amending our civil rights bill to include this civil rights language, or my friends, freedom as we know it will no longer exist,” he said.

While the amendment defines sexual orientation as heterosexuality, homosexuality or bisexuality, Swimp said that it would actually legalize pedophilia: “The fact is that pedophilia in fact is a sexual orientation, so I suppose that they intend to include that as a civil right.”

Gary Cass: 'Every Mosque In America ... Is An Armory Of Hell'

Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission was a guest on the right-wing Christian radio program "On The Way With Paul Ridgeway" earlier this month where he made his case that the Islamic radicals in ISIS are the true face of Islam and warned that every mosque in America is "an armory of Hell."

Saying that "we have fourteen hundred years of history to know what Islam is like and what Islam does," Cass called for military intervention against ISIS to be carried out "with ferocity, because that's the only thing that the Muslim mind will respect."

"But the truth is," he continued, "every mosque in America, I say—and this is harsh words but I think I can back it up—is an armory of Hell."

Ridgeway agreed, as he and Cass later asserted that Muslims around the world have remained silent in the face of atrocities being carried out by ISIS because "they secretly agree with it and they want it."

"I think the truth is," Cass said, "that if you went to these mosques and you were able to get them to speak honestly, they would be delighted with what's going on, that Christians are being killed":

WND Columnist: Isla Vista, California Is 'Infested By Demons'

WorldNetDaily columnist Stuart Goldman writes today that a series of horrific murders committed in Isla Vista, California over the past several decades, such as Elliot Rodger’s recent killing spree, are a result of the city’s “occultism” and “aura of evil that seems to fill the air so thick that I literally become sick to my stomach.”

“[C]an I make a case here for my statement that the little beach own of Isla Vista is, in fact, infested by demons? I think I can.” Goldman writes, before adding: “I have no tangible proof.”

I smoked my first marijuana cigarette in Isla Vista. In fact, the apartment complex I lived in was said to be “the place” for obtaining marijuana. I also took my first dose of LSD while living in Isla Vista. I took it on several occasions.

It was while living in Isla Vista that I joined a cult led by Indian Guru named Jiddu Krishnamurti, whose teaching I became acquainted with while studying Eastern mysticism. I spent my days at the Unicorn bookstore, which stocked a massive array of books on occultism and Eastern mysticism.

I can’t say whether or not it was because of the drugs I was taking, but the fact is, I always had a sense that there was a palpable aura of “evil” in Isla Vista. It was nothing I could put my finger on; it was just a feeling – one that was impossible to ignore.

I have gone back to visit Isla Vista several times during the years since I left there in 1971. Every time I go there, the aura of evil that seems to fill the air is so thick that I literally become sick to my stomach. In fact, the last time I went there, it was so bad, I realized I could never go back there again.



Many of Rodgers friends told authorities that Rodgers had displayed an unusual interest in the occult – and particularly in demons.

The burning question is, can I make a case here for my statement that the little beach own of Isla Vista is, in fact, infested by demons?

I think I can. I have no tangible proof. What I can say is that the Lord has confirmed this to me during prayers sessions in which I have asked Him to reveal the truth to me about this issue.

Let me know what you think.

Paranoia-Rama: Immigrant Child Warriors, Gay Recruitment, And Obama's Race War

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

If President Obama is starting a race war, he will probably use his army of child migrants, gay public school students and “Muslim brothers” to join the fight. None of that will matter, of course, if Ebola sweeps across America first.

5. Child Migrants Bringing In Ebola, Probably

With Republican members of Congress including Michele Bachmann, Phil Gingrey and Todd Rokita warning that the unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border could unleash the Ebola virus on America, we shouldn’t be surprised that at least one GOP candidate for Congress is also stirring up baseless fears about immigrant children carrying Ebola.

Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin, who is seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, said people wouldn’t be surprised if Central American child migrants are infected with Ebola. Tucson Weekly reports:

Tobin says he's hearing about worries from constituents that the recent wave of undocumented youth from Central America could cause an Ebola outbreak in the United States.

"Anything's now possible," Tobin said last week. "So if you were to say the Ebola virus has now entered (the country), I don't think anyone would be surprised."

Tobin acknowledged that Ebola has been limited to outbreaks in Africa, "to the extent that they're really aware of that. I think there is a reason we should be concerned about it and say, 'Hey, can you assure us the people crossing the border are not from the Middle East?' ... So I use that as an example, that the public would not be surprised to hear about the next calamity at the border."

4. Child Migrants Might Be Anti-American Warriors

If the Central American child migrants aren’t already dead from Ebola, then that means they are probably Venezuelan-trained child “warriors” who will “rise up against us as Americans” any day now. At least that is what we learned from an extremely informative and not-at-all speculative conversation between RNC Committeewoman Tamara Scott, who is also Concerned Women for America’s Iowa state director, and Texas Tea Party activist Mary Huls:

Alex Jones and William Gheen also wondered if the minors are really child soldiers who will kill Americans for “Obamaphones.”

3. Obama Wants A Race War!

Are President Obama and administration officials like Eric Holder using the Ferguson riots to launch a race war? Of course! At least that is what is occurring in the far-right fantasy land inhabited by Larry Klayman, who is warning that “the racist Obama and his henchmen like Eric Holder have succeeded in creating what in effect is a huge racial divide and race war in the nation.”

“[O]ur so-called president and his attorney general jump to judgment, on a consistent and regular basis, against ‘whitey’ and in favor of their black brothers,” Klayman said. “At this rate, it is remarkable that Obama has not renamed the White House ‘the Black House.’”

Ted Nugent agrees, arguing this week that “President Obama continues to beat the race drum” because he hopes “fanning the embers of racism will keep black Americans squarely in the corner of their big daddy Democratic Party.” Wayne Allyn Root added, “Obama needs ‘division.’ Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war.”

2. Obama’s ‘Muslim Brothers’ Crafting U.S. Foreign Policy

Rep. Louie Gohmert is pretty sure that the Muslim Brotherhood is running the show in the Obama administration and has used its influence to boost extremist groups like ISIS. “If you’re commander-in-chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advise on when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers,” the Texas GOP congressman said in an interview this week.

Gohmert’s House colleague Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican who thinks Obama might just be a secret Muslim, said that with the Bowe Berghdal swap, the Obama administration sent “a signal to the whole jihadist world” to kidnap Americans like James Foley.

“I’m afraid we sent the message to the terrorists, again, that this president will vacillate and not do what is necessary in times of crisis,” Franks said.

1. Gays Coming To Recruit Kids

Schools are using Common Core to brainwash your kids and turn them gay, according to the Tea Party of Louisiana, which proudly cited a satirical article from a parody news site titled “Common Core Turns First Wave Of Students Gay” to make its case.

When a reporter for the Times-Picayune asked the Tea Party group’s spokesman Bob Reid why his organization decided to cite an article from an outlet whose “About” page reads, “If you believe any of the shit you read here you are a freaking moron,” he responded that he was simply trying to “bring attention of the Common Core issue to those who maybe aren't paying attention.”

The American Family Association is  also worried about “recruitment programs” in public schools that are led by gay rights advocates who are “seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks.” Randy Thomasson of Save California, for his part, said schools are pressuring children to participate in a “perverse, unnatural, unbiblical, unhealthy, tyrannical sexual agenda.”
