Brigitte Gabriel: If Orlando Shooter Was Gay, He Would Have Shot Up A 'Heterosexual Club'

Responding to very early, unconfirmed reports that the terrorist who killed 49 people at a gay club in Orlando last weekend could have been gay himself, anti-Muslim activist Brigitte Gabriel said yesterday that if “his gayness” had been “an issue” in the shooting, he would have attacked “a heterosexual club” instead.

Gabriel told Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg that reports that the shooter may have repressed his sexuality were just an attempt by liberals to “divert the issue” from President Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s “failed policies” by noting the anti-gay nature of the attack.

“And, by the way, if this guy, if his gayness is an issue because he is gay and he wants to kill, you would think he would go into a heterosexual club and start shooting people out of complete frustration that he was not created like them or maybe heterosexuals look down at gays,” she said.

D'Souza Calls New Movie A 'Weapon' He'll Drop Like 'A Grenade' Into Democratic Convention

Dinesh D’Souza, who has seemingly abandoned his pretense of being a scholar to become an overt right-wing propagandist, has been pushing his latest movie, “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party,” for months. He bragged back in March that it is so “emotionally powerful” that it will cause Democrats to need counseling.

At last week’s Road to Majority conference, Religious Right activists were subjected to the trailer for “Hillary’s America” three times on Friday. D’Souza described the movie as “a retelling of the whole story of progressivism and the Democratic Party.” In it, he purports to expose the “soul of the Democratic Party.” The trailer features dramatic re-enactments of southern Democrats’ support for slavery, the KKK and Jim Crow.

Sound familiar? This is territory trod a full decade ago by D’Souza’s fellow conservative propagandist David Barton. At the time, PFAW called Barton’s DVD “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black and White,” “staggeringly misleading” and “one-sided history.” The RNC had been bankrolling Barton’s outreach to African American and Hispanic churches. In Barton’s version of the Democrats-as-the-source-of-all-evil tale, history conveniently ended with passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That allowed him to ignore the past half century, Goldwater’s opposition to civil rights legislation, the GOP’s infamous “southern strategy,” the GOP’s embrace of the segregationist “Dixiecrats,” and the modern Right Wing’s record of inflaming white racial resentment and using racial dog-whistles for political gain — as if it were a complete mystery why African Americans would ever vote for a Democratic candidate.

D’Souza seems to update Barton by portraying Democratic support for social safety net programs as a means of moving “from slavery to enslavement.” After all, what progressivism really means is “social engineering and social control.”

Of course, thanks to the success of his earlier “documentaries,” D’Souza’s film will have Hollywood-level production values, complete with sinister, pounding music to drive the point home. According to a memorable description by Michelle Goldberg, the movie’s “farcical bombast” is “aimed at those who find Michael Bay films too restrained and artful.”

Bombast is in fact D’Souza’s aim. “A movie is a weapon,” he declared at a Friday evening session at Road to Majority. “There’s a much bigger battle. There’s a political battle, but underneath that there’s a cultural battle, and…underneath that is a moral and spiritual battle.” Democrats have controlled the levers of culture, he said, and there’s a “desperate need” for conservatives to “up the ante on all fronts.”  He said his new movie “blows the lid” off the “gangsterism” of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, who he said is “at the pinnacle of this whole crime syndicate.”

“What are these Democrats hiding?” he asks in the trailer. “What if the goal of the Democratic Party is to steal the most valuable thing the world has ever produced? What if their plan is to steal America?”

“Hillary’s America” is scheduled to open on July 22, between the two parties’ political conventions. The idea, he said, is to “drop this grenade in the middle of the Democratic convention.”

Of course this isn’t the first time D’Souza has tried to sway the outcome of an election. His 2012 movie, “2016: Obama’s America,” made a lot of money, but failed to prevent Obama’s re-election. D’Souza has been fuming for years that if only more voters had seen the movie, the outcome would have been different, a claim he made again on Friday night. It was part of his pitch for people to take their friends and fellow churchgoers to see his new movie on its opening weekend; he said a good opening would take it from 1500 to 2000 theaters.

“Hillary’s America” is the second of D’Souza’s films aimed at keeping Clinton out of the White House. That was also the goal of 2014’s “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” which portrayed Obama and Clinton working together to carry out Saul Alinsky’s plan to lead America down the path to national suicide and socialist tyranny. The two movies also appear to have something else in common: D’Souza complaining that he was a victim of political persecution in his conviction for violating campaign finance laws (to which he pled guilty).

Like many Road to Victory speakers, D’Souza closed by making a pitch for people to elect Donald Trump in spite of his obvious shortcomings. Like the Super Bowl, he said, elections come down to two competing teams, and the winner gets to do what it wants with America.

It is a “true and grim fact of politics,” he said, that you have to fight alongside people who don’t agree with you on all things. We are, he said in a “one of these bizarre moments in American politics,” but that is where we are and we have to choose between the actual choices before us:

And so it seems to me that here we are, and the question before us is, do we want this Obama-Hillary machine, which has been grinding us down, not just picking our wallets but in a sense stealing— my book is “Stealing America,” and by stealing America I don’t just mean our money. I mean stealing our freedom. I mean stealing our American dream. I mean stealing our aspirations, stealing our ability to be who we are and pray as we wish and speak as we believe and think as we will.

 

Glenn Beck Conveniently Forgets To Mention That Ted Cruz Cozied Up To 'Kill The Gays' Preacher

Glenn Beck kicked off his radio program today by calling on Christians to denounce Pastor Roger Jimenez, who gained notoriety this week by preaching that the real tragedy of the Orlando massacre was that more gay people weren't killed.

Beck said that this pastor is preaching "evil" and that Christians cannot remain silent about it and must repudiate such views:

During the course of the discussion, Beck mentioned that there was conference last year, possibly in Ohio, put on by some pastor who also called for gay people to be put to death at which several of the Republican presidential hopefuls spoke.

Beck was oddly vague and unsure of the exact details surrounding this conference, which is convenient considering that the man Beck believed to be God's chosen candidate, Ted Cruz, was among the featured speakers at that conference:

Beck is undoubtedly aware that Cruz spoke at Kevin Swanson's National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa last fall, considering that Beck's daughter asked Cruz about it directly and Cruz lied to her face.

But when Beck brought up the issue today, he never once mentioned that Cruz was in attendance and falsely claimed that Swanson made his comments about putting gay people to death before any of the GOP candidates arrived, so there was no way for them to know about his views or what he said from the stage before they spoke.

Cruz, of course, was directly confronted by CNN's Jake Tapper on national television about appearing with Swanson the day before he attended his conference. Cruz dismissed any concerns and continued to do so for weeks afterwards. Then, at the conference itself, Swanson repeated his view about the death penalty for gay people both before and after he interviewed Cruz from the event's stage.

It's easy to see why Beck might be so conveniently confused about the details of this event, given that it must be hard to for him to square his image of Cruz as America's divinely anointed savior with the reality that Cruz was more than willing to appear onstage with Swanson, despite his repeated proclamations that gay people should be put to death by the government, for the sake of helping his campaign during the Iowa Republican caucus.

Rick Wiles: 'Round Up The Muslims And Ship Them Out Of This Country'

On his “Trunews” radio program on Monday, after declaring that the Orlando massacre represented God’s judgment on America, Rick Wiles said that the U.S. government should “outlaw Islam” and “confiscate Muslims.”

“The left is calling for gun control. What we need is Muslim control. We don’t need to confiscate guns, we need to confiscate Muslims. You’re not going to solve this problem until you round up the Muslims and ship them out of this country. End of discussion. Outlaw Islam. Make it an illegal religion. Don’t tell me it can’t be done. Pass a constitutional amendment that says we’re a Christian nation and Islam is illegal. Done. Get rid of it. Stamp it out before it destroys civilization.”

“Anyone who is a practicing Muslim is mentally ill,” he added, before claiming that the U.S. government is bringing terrorists into the country. “We’re all going to die, gay and straight, left and right, Republican and Democrat, we’re all going to die if we don’t get this stopped really soon.”

Wiles also hailed Donald Trump for his recent suggestion that President Obama may be a terrorist sympathizer.

“I took that as Donald Trump was insinuating that the American people must now consider the possibility that Obama has a hidden, nefarious plan underway which is covering for all of these Muslims coming into the country,” he said. “I think he got very close to it today…. When you said that this morning, Mr. Trump, you were extremely close to nailing it, what this really is, that we have an Islamic jihadist in the White House.”

He also claimed that the Obama administration “hired Omar Mateen,” the Orlando shooter, to work for a security company that contracts with the government. (Mateen secured the job in 2007, two years before Obama took office).

Wiles concluded: “If there’s a Muslim living in your town, there’s a high probability you have a jihadist cell in your town.”

John Stemberger Is 'Tired Of Seeing Special Interest Rainbow Flags' After Orlando Massacre

The Florida Family Policy Council’s John Stemberger wrote in an email to his group’s members today that in the wake of the massacre at a gay club in Orlando on Sunday, he wants to see greater “unity” among Floridians in the form of more American flags and fewer “special interest rainbow flags” in memory of the victims:

The Pulse nightclub is right next to a Dunkin Doughnuts, Wendy’s, Radio Shack and a 7-11 store where I often buy gas and get my children Slurpees. I ride my bike through this area of town often. This is in part why this tragedy has affected me so deeply. This is my community. These are our streets and neighborhoods. The people that were killed and injured are not just “gay.” They are human beings! They are my neighbors! They are fellow Americans! Honestly, I am really tired of seeing special interest rainbow flags and wish we could see more American flags, as we stand together in unity against our greatest mutual enemy, radical Islamic jihadists!

He responded to criticism of conservative Christian LGBT rights opponents in the wake of the attack, saying that “Christians should be prepared to be attacked and persecuted if they do not bow down and pledge allegiance to the gay pride flag and all it supposedly represents.” LGBT rights advocates’ strategy, he said, is to “manipulate and bully Christians into submission to the new orthodoxy of the moral revolution.”

Christians should be prepared to be attacked and persecuted if they do not bow down and pledge allegiance to the gay pride flag and all it supposedly represents. In stunned disbelief, I was listening to CNN at 1:30am on Sunday night and I heard the leading gay-rights activist from Los Angeles being interviewed. She openly said you don’t need to find a terrorist cell to find this kind of hatred. All you need to do is look right here in America at fundamentalist Christians. The CNN anchor did NOTHING at all to challenge her or question her about her outrageous claim.

We need to be prepared for the stunning and false narrative of the Left which is that all major world religions, including but especially Christianity, breed hatred and create a hostile environment which "causes" the kind of violence we saw in Orlando. The goal of gay-rights activists is to try and get Christians to stop proclaiming God's design for marriage, gender and human sexuality. And they are not playing fair. The goal to simple. If you disagree in any way, no matter how gentle, loving or respectful they will call you a "hater" and a "bigot." They will scream at you publicly and test how committed you are to your beliefs. Their strategy is to manipulate and bully Christians into submission to the new orthodoxy of the moral revolution. Please know that as for me and "our house" at the FFPC, we will never be moved by this attempt at intimidation.

Stemberger, who is the most prominent anti-LGBT activist in Florida and has launched an anti-gay alternative to the Boy Scouts, said that he received a personal call from Sen. Marco Rubio after the massacre.

WND Columnist: God Is Using Donald Trump To Save America

The far-right outlet WorldNetDaily published a column today by author Jerry Kaifetz titled “God has a History of Using Men Like Trump,” in which Kaifetz argues that God may be using Donald Trump to save America from total collapse just as he used King Ahasuerus to stop a plot by Haman to exterminate the Jews.

Kaifetz writes that conservative Christians should act like Esther, who according to biblical accounts married Ahasuerus even though he was not Jewish but whose marriage to the king enabled her to thwart Haman’s plans, and rally behind Trump despite the fact many find him morally repugnant.

“I don’t know how I could more clearly see Donald Trump represented in the person of King Ahasuerus, with Esther, of course, being America’s conservative voters,” Kaifetz says.

“I urge Christians to understand that Donald Trump is a modern-day King Ahasuerus,” he writes. “He is the captain who can keep the USS Titanic off the iceberg. Let’s worry about his Christian pedigree when our ship finds safer waters to ply.”

My mind then goes to the Judeo-Christian Scriptures. It is here that I find a singular character whom God saw fit to ally with His people not because of his understanding of the holy, but because the issue that towered above all others was the national, cultural and physical survival of the nation of Israel. That man was King Ahasuerus from the Book of Esther.



Now I can just imagine the outrage among some elements of the Jewish world when a Jewish girl is advised to marry a heathen king. “He is not even a Jew!” were shouts that surely echoed throughout the empire. Some of the more practically minded Jews surely responded by saying, “Listen, you schmucks! Nobody is going to be Jewish if Haman has his way and now we have the chance to get some real influence in the palace in Shushan.” Perhaps this pitted the “true Jews” against the “Jinos,” Jews in name only. Perhaps the followers of Mordecai told the Jewish purists that it was time to “Make Judaism great again.”

I don’t know how I could more clearly see Donald Trump represented in the person of King Ahasuerus, with Esther, of course, being America’s conservative voters. Just as back in the Persian Empire, survival was the only issue that counted in forging alliances when the likes of Haman was plotting genocide against the entire Jewish race. Sound familiar? Haman was a descendant of King Agag, a Jew hater in the classic form that seems to periodically emerge in the pages of world history only to be relegated by fate to irrelevancy, defeat and obscurity while the Jews have continued to prosper for 5,000 years.

In the end, the Book of Esther is a look into the practical mind of God, and His spokesman Mordecai. Mordecai understood one thing: The survival of the nation was at stake, and its enemies had made the threat of genocide and were fully capable carrying out that threat. Mordecai knew that avoiding that fate trumped (please pardon the pun) the insistence on prohibiting a Jewish girl from marrying a non-Jew. How much would that matter if Judaism were wiped from the face of the earth?

Today, I urge Christians to understand that Donald Trump is a modern-day King Ahasuerus. He is the captain who can keep the USS Titanic off the iceberg. Let’s worry about his Christian pedigree when our ship finds safer waters to ply. Let’s not strain at gnats and swallow a camel.

Pastor Dave Love: The Obama Administration's Transgender Rights Directive Came Straight From The Pit Of Hell

James Dobson has found a new hero in local Colorado pastor Dave Love and was so impressed by a recent sermon he delivered ranting against the Obama administration's guidelines regarding the rights of transgender students in public schools that he aired a long excerpt of it on his radio show today.

In his sermon, Love declared that he doesn't care what the government says or how the Supreme Court rules because he will never accept marriage equality or transgender rights, because both things come straight from the pit of hell.

"No culture can survive when they lose their balance between right and wrong," he preached. "Our president and this administration has put our children at risk. Our kids are no longer safe in public education, they're no longer safe from the perversion of this world in our public schools. When you see the evil that is being handed down, a directive from the president himself that encourages this perversion, I have only one thing to say: The Lord rebuke you. To give a directive to allow this, to allow our children in elementary school to use the opposite sex bathroom is pure evil and society, through our leaders, is calling evil good and good evil and justice is being taken away from the righteous. And [this] way of thinking is a philosophy that is demonic and comes from the pit of hell. This is a philosophy from Satan himself."

"The attack on the family unit is real and it's being authored by none other than Satan himself to try and destroy the moral fabric of our society," Love continued. "The devil has come to steal, to kill, to destroy. The issue is not about homosexuality, the issue is about marriage. The issue is not about transgenders using bathrooms or locker rooms of their choice, the issue is that Satan wants to ruin, absolutely ruin, the fabric of society so he can steal the innocence of your children by having them be in public schools that [are] going to allow for this transgender behavior. He wants to steal the innocence of your kids to destroy and kill the foundation of this nation, which is built on Judeo-Christian values."

Rick Wiles: Orlando Massacre Was God's Judgment On America

On Monday, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles said that the terrorist attack at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando represented the judgment of God on America.

He said that more terrorist attacks are coming to the U.S. because America’s security apparatus has been “infiltrated” by terrorists and “we have a Muslim jihadist in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama, a jihadist.”

“God has been crying out to this nation: Either voluntarily humble yourselves to your knees and call upon me to protect your or continue in your rebellion and be brought to your knees by your enemies,” he said. “But either way, America, you’re going to your knees. I’ve said for years, America, if you continue to reject the mercy of the cross, you will live by the tyranny of the sword, and that’s what’s happening right now.”

Wiles, who once said that “Ebola could solve America’s problem” with homosexuality, added that he has “no ill will against any gay or lesbian.”

Alex Jones: Hillary Clinton A 'Demon-Antichrist' Figure

Last week, Alex Jones attacked Hillary Clinton for looking like “Emperor Palpatine in drag,” impersonating her by saying, “Go forth my children, the day of doom is at hand, go out into the world and burn it with the great cleansing of Hillary and the great goddess. Cleanse the earth with blood, our sacred goddess of death, Kali.”

“This is like something out of a science fiction/horror film where they’re electing a cult, demon, Antichrist, Linda Blair,” he added.

Later, this happened.

Glenn Beck Says Every American Should Carry A Concealed Weapon

For the last two days, Glenn Beck's main concern in the wake of the massacre in Orlando has been that the government will use the tragedy as an excuse to implement gun control when the real solution for stopping mass shootings is for every American to start carrying a gun.

"We're in this together," Beck said. "Those who claim to be responsible, step up to your responsibility; get a concealed weapons permit [and] learn how to handle your gun."

Beck said that he is very skilled with a rifle and a handgun and that if you present a threat to him or those around him, "I will kill you ... I will hit you between the eyes every single time."

"Every American should be able to say that," he declared. "Every American should be able to say, 'I am going to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.'"

"I am not going to be a lamb led to the slaughter, waiting for the police to show up," Beck stated, vowing that if somebody tried to attack a gathering at which he was present, "I'm going to shoot them before they shoot the second or third person. That's responsibility. Everybody else waits, [but] I'm not going to."

Beck then cryptically warned that Muslims from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere in the Middle East are pouring across the Southern border "by the droves" and so his audience had better "get yourself a gun and carry it."

Conservative Radio Host: Orlando Club Targeted Because Patrons Were Unarmed, Not Because They Were Gay

Conservative South Florida radio host Joyce Kaufman, who briefly served as chief of staff to former Republican Rep. Allen West, said today that she did not believe that the terrorist who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando this weekend targeted the location out of animosity toward gay people, but instead because he knew that club-goers would be unarmed.

“How long does he have to be the president before he figures out that what we had happen in Orlando was a terrorist act?” Kaufman asked of President Obama, who called the massacre an “act of terror and an act of hate.”

“I don’t care if the guy was gay, I don’t care if his wife took him there, he launched an attack of terror against the patrons of the Pulse nightclub,” Kaufman said. “I don’t look at them as gay patrons, they are the patrons, they are fellow human beings. It could have been any nightclub in anywhere in any country. When you’re crazy like that, the last thing I think you’re concerned about is the gender preference of your victims. I just don’t believe it. I don’t think this was a hate crime, I think this was an act of terrorism, I think he knew he had a group of people who were in a gun-free zone and who don’t carry guns for the most part anyway … I don’t know any gay men who carry.”

While Florida concealed carry permit holders are not allowed to bring firearms into establishments that serve alcohol, the Orlando attacker did confront “good guys with guns”: He exchanged fire with an off-duty police officer who was guarding the club and two other police officers during the attack.

Yesterday, Kaufman interviewed former Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt, who said that politicians who support gun regulations are “complicit” in the Orlando shooting. Kaufman and Pratt urged listeners to defy gun-free zone regulations and carry firearms even where they are prohibited.

“Listen, I have had it with no-gun zones, I have had it with soft targets, and I recognize the fact that from now on, I’m responsible for my security,” Kaufman said, to an “amen” from Pratt.

They two said that if they had been in the club that was attacked, things would have turned out differently.

“Had I been one of those people cowering in the bathroom, I would have done more than text home,” Kaufman said.

“Yeah, shooting a text and shooting a gun are really enormously different in how effective they can be against a dirtbag with a gun,” Pratt said. “And for our legislators to keep insisting that somehow we are going to be better off in a gun-free zone, that makes them complicit. And I’ll say it to their face, they are complicit with what happens in Orlando…”

“And you and I both agree that what they’re forcing people to do is become lawbreakers themselves,” Kaufman said. “Law-abiding citizens are not going to abide by these laws in the future because they want a fighting chance.”

“Not if they want to survive and they go to any place that’s quote-unquote ‘gun free,’” Pratt responded.

Kaufman added that gun-free zones are impeding her “free access to places”: “Look, I don’t have to march into a post office with a gun or into a federal courthouse with a gun, but I’ll be darned if I’m told where I can eat, where I can drink, where I can dance by the government. And since I don’t go without a gun, they have begun to impinge upon my free access to places.”

Donald Trump, Who Opposes LGBT Rights, Claims Mantle Of LGBT Community

Days after telling a meeting of anti-LGBT activists that he is with them “100 percent,” Donald Trump sent a tweet today thanking the LGBT community for what he apparently thinks is its uniform support for his presidential candidacy.

Trump is trying to use the massacre in Orlando to win support for his cause of attacking all Muslim-Americans, including LGBT Muslims.

We know that Trump is pretending to be a friend to LGBT people in order to justify his discriminatory proposals, such as his proposed ban on the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims from stepping foot in the U.S., because his own words and actions make clear that he is no ally of the LGBT community.

He has sharply criticized the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling and pledged to appoint judges “as close to Scalia as you could find,” referring to the late justice known for his broadsides against gay people and the “homosexual agenda.”

Not only would Trump radically reshape the judiciary, where many key LGBT issues are decided, but he has also vowed to sign anti-LGBT activists’ top legislative priority, the misnamed First Amendment Defense Act, which would give legal approval to discrimination against LGBT people, and gave his blessing to Kentucky clerk Kim Davis’ attempt to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

And that’s not to mention the fact that his attacks on women, Latinos and immigrants are also attacks on many LGBT people.



Frank Amedia, a pastor who serves as Trump’s “liaison for Christian policy,” describes HIV/AIDS as “a disease that comes because of unnatural sex.” Trump’s frequent campaign surrogate Robert Jeffress, a Southern Baptist preacher, has blasted gays for living a “filthy,” “miserable” and “perverse” “lifestyle” that he says encourages child abuse and the coming of the Antichrist.

One of Trump’s top advisers, Ben Carson, made waves during his unsuccessful presidential bid with his bizarreludicrous and offensive diatribes against gay rights.

Trump has also partnered with Harlem’s notorious 'stone homos' pastor James David Manning and far-right radio show host Alex Jones, who thinks the LGBT rights movement is a “suicide cult” bent on the destruction of humanity.

Trump is not interested in promoting LGBT rights. He is simply opportunistically trying to use a community hit by tragedy as cover for his own bigotry.

David Barton's Brilliant New Defense Against Criticism: I'm Rubber, You're Glue

Pseudo-historian David Barton seems to have come up with a new talking point for hitting back at those who criticize right-wing Christians: I know you are, but what am I?

On his "WallBuilders Live" radio show yesterday, Barton mistakenly claimed that Romans 2:21 says that those who condemn others are often only condemning themselves because they are guilty of the very things for which they are attacking others, which he used to attack those who criticize the Religious Right (it's actually Romans 2:1 that says this).

"Usually what they accuse you of is what they're guilty of," he said. "They yell intolerance at us when they're the intolerant ones. They yell bigotry at us, they're the bigoted ones. They yell anti-science at us, they're the anti-science. You get used to when people call you names, it's because they're very conscious and sensitive of what that looks like because they are one."

Apparently Barton was so pleased with this ingenious argument that he repeated it on today's show, declaring that when "they accuse us of being the haters or whatever; no, that's because they look in a mirror and they know how to recognize a hater when they see one because they see one every morning."

Pat Robertson: Gays & Islamists Are Allies So 'Let Them Kill Themselves'

Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson reacted to the massacre at an Orlando gay club by making the absurd claim that liberal LGBT rights advocates have aligned themselves with radical Islamists and are now reaping what they have sowed.

Robertson said that liberals are facing a “dilemma” because they love both LGBT equality and Islamic extremism, and that it is better for conservatives like himself not to get involved but to instead just watch the two groups kill each other.

“The left is having a dilemma of major proportions and I think for those of us who disagree with some of their policies, the best thing to do is to sit on the sidelines and let them kill themselves,” he said.

Earlier in the program, Robertson went into more detail about what he called “the dilemma of the liberals, the so-called progressives, because they have two favored groups. One, the Muslims. Number two, the homosexuals.”

We’re looking at a favored group by the left, the homosexuals, and that in Islam is punishable by death or imprisonment or some sanction, so what are the left going to do? How are they going to describe it? And they don’t know quite what to do now. The fact that this Islamic gentleman opens fire in a gay nightclub and kills almost 50 homosexuals, that says something and tells the fact that Islam is against homosexuality, so the liberals are going to be scrambling to find some rationale, I think they’re going to have a hard time doing it.

In the meantime, Donald Trump is riding high because he said we should screen these people and he’s absolutely right. We should screen them. So the left is saying, ‘Oh you’re anti-Muslim, you’re racist’ and all this. Suddenly, that part of the narrative doesn’t play too well and they’re stuck as to what to do. But Trump is enjoying a victory.

Robertson went on to criticize President Obama for being soft on terrorism and sticking to “the narrative” that Islam is not inherently violent, irresponsibly ignoring the fact that “radical Islam is in the religion of Islam.”

He added that the issue of homosexuality and the Islamic world is “a murky picture” because Lawrence of Arabia may have spent the night with a sheikh who tried to “perform homosexual acts” on him.

UPDATE: The Christian Broadcasting Network released a statement today saying that Robertson was “clearly” using the word “killing” metaphorically during his discussion of a mass murder.

Theodore Shoebat On Orlando Massacre: It's 'The State's Job To Kill The Sodomites,' Not Vigilantes

Last night, extremist anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat posted an hour-long video in response to the massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando over the weekend in which he, like his father, expressed no sympathy for those "sodomites" who died because the entire tragedy was nothing more than "scum killing scum."

Both Islam and homosexuality are aberrations, he declared, and "Muslims kill each other all the time [and] sodomites kill each other all the time," so this case of a Muslim killing dozens of gay people was nothing more than "mutant killing mutant, devil killing devil."

"Sodomites are criminals" and do not deserve the prayers of Christians, Shoebat stated. "The sodomites who were killed in this club were not innocent people. They were not good people. They were not people who were just victims who we should just feel sorry for. It was scum killing scum."

The real victims of this attack, Shoebat said, are people like him who are being unfairly painted as radicals and likened to ISIS simply because they openly advocate putting gay people to death.

Shoebat, who last year was featured alongside several congressmen and GOP presidential candidates in an anti-gay "documentary," stated that he does not support the actions of the man who opened fired on the nightclub — not because he doesn't think that gay people should be killed, but simply because executing gay people is the job of the government, not vigilantes.

"I don't believe in vigilantism, but I do believe in the government killing the sodomites," he explained. "I do believe in the government arresting the sodomites and executing them for homosexuality. Under my rule, that sodomite club in Orlando, it would have been destroyed, it would have been demolished, bulldozed and all the bastards in there would have been arrested, tried, found guilty for homosexuality and executed."

"What this guy did was vigilantism," Shoebat stated, which he doesn't support because it's "the state's job to kill the sodomites."

Trump: All My Judges Will Be 'Picked By The Federalist Society'

Today on “Breitbart News Daily,” Donald Trump lashed out at his conservative detractors who have continued to criticize him even after he all but clinched the GOP presidential nomination.

Trump, who said that such foes decided to “immediately stop talking about me and my views” following the terrorist attack in Orlando, accused the “jealous” and “pathetic” Mitt Romney and others of trying to put Hillary Clinton in the White House.

“Even though I’m going to appoint great judges, you know, we could have as many as five judges, and she’s going to appoint super radical liberals and I’m appointing, you know, you saw the 11 names I gave, and we’re going to have great judges, conservative, all picked by the Federalist Society,” he said.

Last month, Trump released a list of potential Supreme Court nominees crafted by the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society, two far-right groups.

Alex Jones Blames The Orlando Massacre On The LGBT Community

After describing this weekend's massacre in Orlando as a false flag attack, conspiracy theorist broadcaster Alex Jones said on his radio program on Sunday that the LGBT community is to blame for the deadly terrorist attack at a gay nightclub.

Jones, a close ally of Donald Trump, was particularly angry that President Obama addressed the fact that the assault was directed at LGBT people, claiming that the community frequently hypes the threat of anti-LGBT violence in order to take control of the education system “so you can sexualize my children and indoctrinate them into your cult.”

The “InfoWars” broadcaster accused LGBT and radical Islamic leaders of working together so they can promote pedophilia and abuse children. “No wonder the radical left is allied with Islam, they’re a bunch of perverts, they want access to our kids,” he said.

Later in the program, Jones said that he does not hate gay people, he simply hates “the fake, flamboyant, you’re going to run society, you’re going to tell our five-year-olds how to live” agenda that gay rights activists purportedly promote.

LGBT leaders, he said, have backed liberal policies that led to the Orlando attack: “I charge the left and I charge Obama and I charge the LGBT community in general with endangering America and with the blood of these 50-plus innocent men and women who did not deserve to die, who did not deserve to have bullets fired into them and all the other hundreds of thousands of other liberals and gays and others in the Middle East that have been murdered in the last five years under the Al Qaeda/ISIS onslaught that our government and CNN has pushed and said is a good thing.”

The Death Cycle: Mass Shootings, Terrorism, And The Economics Of The NRA

While most American mourn the dead in Orlando and struggle to make sense of the largest mass shooting in American history, the reaction in the boardrooms of gun manufacturers and at the NRA might be a bit different.

Mass gun deaths — far from tragic events for these organizations  are now a significant contributor to their bottom lines. It is all part of a perverse cycle of guns, death and profit that fuels the firearms industry.

Here is how it works:

1. A mass shooting/terrorist attack garners significant media attention.

2. Public figures suggest it might be time to put in place some reasonable and widely agreed upon gun safety legislation; for example, improving our background check system, limiting the ability of those on the terrorist watch list to purchase guns, and the reinstatement of the assault weapons ban.

3. The NRA, along with allies in the conservative media, frighten their supporters into believing that Democrats — and, for the past eight years, President Obama — are going to take their guns away.

4. Gun and ammo sales spike with weapon makers profiting from the panic.

5. The weapons makers contribute generously to the NRA, which launches all-out campaigns using financial, lobbying and grassroots muscle to defeat any gun regulations, while pushing for even greater access to guns.

6. More guns make the next attack even more likely.

This is part of what University of Florida criminologist Gary Kleck identifies as the “Obama effect.” Mass shootings and the fear of new restrictions on guns, he writes, "motivat[e] gun owners to get more guns, and perhaps some non-owners to get one 'while the getting is good.'"

The fake panic created by the NRA has led to a boom for the firearms industry during the Obama years. The Washington Post reported that “in 2009, according to the ATF, gun makers produced 5.6 million guns. By 2013 their annual production had just about doubled, up to 10.9 million guns that year.”

What is driving these purchases is not a need to replace old or broken guns. Kleck points out that guns, unlike most consumer products, “are simple machines made of extremely durable materials.” In addition, most are well cared for by their owners. Hence there is no need to replace them every few years like other household items.

Therefore, gun manufacturers rely on two elements to markets guns. First, make them better (more deadly) and second, create the impression of scarcity and the need for immediate purchase, driven by the fear of potential new gun laws. The NRA takes on this role with gusto, consistently pointing to an invented threat from a tyrannical federal government.

At the same time, the organization plays an active role in promoting weapons. For example, the AR-15, which was used in Orlando to murder 49 people this past weekend, has been promoted by the NRA in nearly two dozen tweets.

Meanwhile, the NRA’s quest to liberalize gun laws has only made it easier for the perpetrators of mass violence to procure these weapons, only adding to the cycle of death.

Terrorists and those who wish to commit acts of terror have become part of this violent cycle. According to the number crunchers at FiveThirtyEight.com, "every terrorist attack in the U.S. last year in which someone other than the perpetrator was killed involved guns.” In fact, “from 2002 to 2014, 85 percent of people killed by terrorists in the U.S. were killed using guns.”

This is, in part, because of the ease with which anyone can buy a gun in the United States. FiveThirtyEight cites Arie Perliger, director of terrorism studies at the U.S. Military Academy, who explains “that U.S. terrorists are turning to guns because since Sept. 11, the federal government has monitored the use of explosives and the trade of materials that can be turned into explosives.”

According to Jeffrey Simon, author of “Lone Wolf Terrorism: Understanding the Growing Threat,” guns are “less likely [than explosives] to result in a terrorist operation being compromised.”

Hence, the acts of terror the NRA’s political advocacy assists now help pad the bottom line of their benefactors in the gun industry. They, in turn, supply the NRA with funds to contribute to politicians who support their deadly legislative agenda, creating yet another perverse cycle of dollars and death.  

Donald Trump Will Ask NRA For Tips To Prevent Terrorism

Today in New Hampshire, Donald Trump defended his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country and blamed the massacre in Orlando on America’s immigration system, despite the fact that the shooter was born in the U.S.

Trump repeated the bogus claim that Hillary Clinton will not only “ban guns” and begin “abolishing the Second Amendment,” but will also “bring vastly more radical Islamic immigration into this country.”

“She wants to take away Americans’ guns and then admit the very people who want to slaughter us," he said. "Let them come into the country, we don’t have guns, let them come in, let them have all the fun they want.”

He then added that he “will be meeting with the NRA” to “discuss how to ensure Americans have the means to protect themself in this age of terror.”

Matt Barber: Christians Must Take America Back From Demonic 'Islamo-Progressive Axis Of Evil'

At last week’s Road To Majority conference sponsored by Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom Coalition and Concerned Women for America, anti-gay pundit and Liberty University law school associate dean Matt Barber promoted his new book, “Hating Jesus: The American Left’s War on Christianity.”

Barber’s remarks were a typically toxic mix, portraying Christians in America as being under assault from the “secular left, so-called progressives, orthodox Islamists and other pagan traditions, as well as fanatical atheists and others.”

Mankind’s enduring culture war, this is something we did not start. It’s nothing new. It first began in a garden, long ago, and today has reached a fever pitch worldwide, and right here in America in our own backyard. The battle lines are drawn, not so much as between conservative and liberal, as many presume, but rather between biblical and unbiblical, between truth versus deception, and in its most distilled form, the culture war is really a worldly manifestation of an otherworldly battle between good and evil.

Barber admiringly quoted Catholic Cardinal Robert Sarah, who has equated “atheistic secularism” and Islamic fundamentalism with Nazism and communism, “almost like the beasts of the apocalypse.” These two movements, he said, have “the same demonic origin.”

Barber said the progressive left is overwhelmingly anti-Semitic and anti-conservative-Christian, and called President Obama an “apologist for radical Islam.” And he repeated the Religious Right’s charge that the LGBT equality movement is somehow allied with radical Islamic jihadists in a war against Christian civilization:

Liberals and Islamists seem to have forged a bizarre and notably incongruous partnership that I call the Islamo-progressive axis of evil. You ever notice? It just defies logic that secular leftists will trip over themselves to make excuses for radical Islamists who, believe me, they’re coming for them too. The only explanation that I can see for this strange connection is best illustrated by the old adage, ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend.’ And the common enemy, of course, is who? Christ Jesus. It is the person of Christ Jesus who is truth. He is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through him. He is the personification, the embodiment of truth, and so they align against him. And so, Christians in America, ladies and gentlemen, are under attack…

Is this George Washington’s America or is this Joseph Stalin’s Russia? It’s starting — the lines are becoming pretty blurred ... We American Christians are now struggling to maintain our fundamental constitutional freedoms, and are now living under the daily threat of legal, reputational and even physical abuse simply for exercising our faith. Now let me be clear here. We are moving from a soft persecution to a hard persecution here in the United States. Now we’re not being beheaded. No, we’re not being burned alive … but we need to be praying for our brothers and sisters around the world.  We are on that trajectory.

Like many speakers at Road to Majority, Barber denounced efforts to protect the ability of transgender people to use facilities appropriate for their gender identity, portraying the issue in apocalyptic terms:

There are wicked sacrileges being forced upon the American people today, things we couldn’t even imagine five years ago, by our own godless government in the name of so-called progress. Things like utterly evil and insane presidential edicts that open up little girls’ bathrooms and showers to grown men terrorizing themselves, violating their privacy and threatening their safety … Things like the sin-centric and oxymoronic notion of genderless marriage; forced taxpayer funding of child sacrifice and forced participation by Christ’s followers in all of the above sins, under penalty of law, to name but a few of these travesties that are being foisted upon us.

Amid the sprint to the election 2016, the secular left’s utter disdain for both Christ and his followers is reaching a fever pitch. Self-styled progressives, and that is America’s cultural Marxist agents of ruin … they typically disguise their designs on despotism in the flowery and euphemistic language of  and you have heard all of these  reproductive health, anti-discrimination, civil rights and their favorite, of course, multiculturalism. But their ultimate goal here is to silence all dissent and force Christians to conform to their pagan demand or, potentially, face even incarceration.

In addition, said Barber, the U.S. has become “a global force for evil” whose chief export is immorality.

On top of this, the United States has become, in many ways, a global force for evil. Once the moral authority of the world, our chief export now is immorality. We are evangelizing against Christianity as a government, official government policy, pushing radical homosexualism, pushing the transgender agenda worldwide, and using the power of the purse to blackmail countries, poor countries, into acquiescing and casting aside their Christian history and beliefs and embracing this evil …

And also like other speakers, Barber promoted the importance of electing Donald Trump to the White House without mentioning him by name, calling the upcoming election “absolutely critical” to the future of the nation. Christians are called to be salt to the culture, said Barber, and when the culture is an open wound, salt is going to burn. America is “ripe for revival,” he said. “We are going to burn people.”

We must fight back as Christians. It’s time to stop being nicer than Jesus … there is such a thing as righteous anger. We need to be angry because righteousness is being trampled and evil is being promoted to your children …

We can set this nation back on a path toward peace and prosperity and, most importantly, a deep love for God, both individually and, as our founding fathers intended, corporately. We can take America back for Christ, but we can only do it with and through Jesus Christ himself.
