"There is something profoundly and fundamentally anti-Christ about President Obama," Fischer said, while making it clear that he was not saying that Obama is actual the Antichrist. "What I am saying is that the same energy, the same spirit that will one day animate the Antichrist is the spirit and the energy that is at work today in President Obama":
Dorrie O’Brien, a leader of the Texas chapter of the anti-Muslim group ACT! for America, warned at a rally in Austin last month that Islamist extremists are implementing “stealth jihad” in America by putting Muslim holidays on calendars and teaching foreign languages in schools.
She said that it was “fantastic” that the school eventually apologized, but that it “happened for the wrong reason.”
“The school was celebrating ‘world languages’ or some such thing, ‘multiculturalism’ — socialism, in other words,” she lamented. “There is a whole lot wrong with pledging to the flag in Arabic, the language of the people trying to kill us, but the schools should be celebrating English! I don’t think we should have to have a ‘celebrate world languages.’”
This led O’Brien to criticize New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio for adding two Muslim holidays to the city schools calendar, which she asserted was proof that DeBlasio is a “dhimmi” who is “paying his jizya,” a tax levied on non-Muslims.
For the last several months, Glenn Beck's network has been regularly running a presidential poll in which Beck's audience ranks various possible GOP presidential candidates, giving them each a grade ranging from A to F.
Today, Beck and his co-hosts spent the first hour of their radio program going over the results of this month's poll, which found — surprise, surprise — that their audience tends to like the same candidates that they like and dislike the same candidates that they dislike, so that Jeb Bush got an "F" while Ted Cruz got an "A" and everyone else fell somewhere in between.
Since the poll already features a host of people who most likely are not going to actually run for president, Beck suggested today that they should add Judge Andrew Napolitano to the list for next month just because there is a "Draft Napolitano" effort underway online and Beck thinks it would be interesting to see what sort of support the judge could garner from Beck's audience.
The idea then prompted Beck to begin to fantasize that if Rand Paul becomes president, he would probably nominate Napolitano to a seat on the Supreme Court.
"Can you imagine if Rand Paul got in?" he said. "Judge Napolitano would probably be a candidate for Supreme Court. Can you imagine that? That would be great!"
In an interview at a Cleveland Right to Life Event last year, self-proclaimed historian David Barton declared that “no nation” has ever survived more than 80 years past a collapse of “premarital purity and postmarital fidelity.”
“In regards to the moral standing of other democracies, including ancient Rome, how is the United States measuring up today?” an interviewer asked Barton in an edited clip posted on YouTube by the anti-choice group.
“Well, we got real trouble,” Barton responded.
“…Pre-marital purity and post-marital fidelity…no nation, any nation in 5,000 years has ever survived two generations past that, so it’s gone within 80 years,” he said. “So Rome’s the same way.”
The comments start about 20 seconds into the clip:
Former congressman Michele Bachmann is still insisting that President Obama is promoting Islamic terrorism, bizarrely asserting that the president is supporting both the Shiite regime in Iran and Sunni extremists. In an interview yesterday with News Talk Florida that was first flagged by Raw Story, Bachmann went so far as to say that Obama is the “best friend” of terrorists.
After suggesting — falsely — that Obama intends to remove Iran from the list of state sponsors of terrorism, Bachmann said that the president is putting “Iran in the position where they would have the firepower to be able take out not only Israel, but they would have the firepower to use intercontinental ballistic missiles against the United States with nuclear-tipped warheads.”
“This virtually guarantees, in my opinion, a World War III,” she continued, “and that alone would qualify Barack Obama for being the worst president that the United States has ever had to endure.”
“He has now guaranteed that Iran will have a nuclear weapon,” she added.
“The Obama doctrine has been to offer aid and comfort to our enemies while he has cut off our allies,” Bachmann said. “Everything that he has done has been to lift up the agenda of Islamic jihad. He has furthered Islamic jihad across the world, and we’ve never seen anything like this before.”
Bachmann claimed that Obama “has been the best friend of terrorists” and “has aided and abetted the rise of — the goals of terrorists across the world.”
Last month, California State University announced that it would no longer recognize a campus Christian organization because the group would not abide by the university's non-discrimination policy, and naturally Matt Barber and Mat Staver responded by likening the university's decision it to Nazi persecution of the Jews.
On Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program today, Barber declared that this is just another example of "soft persecution" of Christians in America that, it left unchecked, will lead to Christians being imprisoned as they are in China or tortured and beheaded, as they are by ISIS.
"Soft persecution," Barber said, "can ultimately lead to hard persecution and if things don't change here in the U.S., that's the path we're heading down."
Not to be outdone, Staver readily agreed as he proceeded to liken the situation to Nazi Germany.
"Even though this kind of persecution or discrimination is not on the same level as what we see in some of these places around the world," he said, "it is a precursor to that same kind of thing. Once they say that you're a Christian and because of that, you're not going to have the same rights, we're going to stigmatize you; this is what happened with the Jews. It didn't start off with the gas chambers. It started off with taking away their right to work. It started off with putting the Star of David on these individuals and stigmatizing them and precluding them from other rights and liberties that every other person would have who is not a Jew. So this is something that we need to stand up against":
"Should the court require the states and the people to ‘ritualize’ sodomite behavior by government issuance of a state marriage license, it could bring God’s judgment on the nation," says an amicus brief submitted to the Supreme Court "by the William J. Olson law firm and the U.S. Justice Foundation on behalf of Public Advocate of the U.S., Joyce Meyer Ministries, the Lincoln Institute, the Abraham Lincoln Foundation, Institute on the Constitution, Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund and pastor Chuck Baldwin."
Tom Tancredo cites Savannah Guthrie's interview with Rand Paul: “Well, I hate to sound like the reporterette that was giving him a hard time on television yesterday morning, but he is going to have to explain a lot of things.”
Ken Blackwell says that those fighting against gay marriage are modern-day civil rights activists and conscientious objectors: "We will stand up against the pink panzers of political correctness."
Janet Jenkins' lawsuit against those she alleges were involved in helping her former partner Lisa Miller kidnap their daughter and flee the country has been delayed.
Tomorrow, the American Family Association, One Million Moms, the Media Research Center, and the Family Research Council will launch a campaign to get ABC to cancel its sitcom based on the life of Dan Savage.
Finally, Don Boys has some thoughts: "Sodomy is evil, wrong, wicked, sinful, corrupt, perverse, bad, immoral, depraved, decadent, dissolute, debauched, and disgusting. And whether I’m writing in love or hate doesn’t change the facts."
She also mocked Obama for commending Pope Francis and hailing Jesus’ teachings of “embracing those who were different; serving the marginalized; humbling Himself to the last.” Rios said that when Obama urged listeners “to love our neighbors — all of our neighbors — as ourselves,” he must have been specifically speaking about the bakers and florists who have faced legal action for refusing service to gay customers.
“He’s talking about these religious freedom laws, among other things; he is talking about the gay community, which is his obsession, I must say,” Rios said. “‘Serving the marginalized,’ in other words, cakes, flowers. We know what he is talking about.”
“It’s a perversion of Jesus’ teaching to think that we ignore God’s law to do what we know in good conscience we can’t do and that we should be forced to do that in the name of God’s love and in what Jesus said, it’s just really a perversion, it’s very evil and it’s evil to do it at an Easter prayer breakfast,” she added.
In the interview, Tancredo reiterated the accusation before alluding to accusations that the president is secretly Muslim and asserting that the president finds Christianity and Western Civilization “disdainful.”
“Listen, this president, no matter how he tries to portray himself in terms of his religious proclivities — because he’s never been baptized, to anybody’s knowledge, in a Christian church — we do know, of course, of his past participation in Islamic religion in terms of schooling and that sort of — so, the reality is he is not a Christian,” he said. “I don’t think he cares one twit about what Christians say. And I think, this is my belief, that he is antagonistic to Christianity because it is part of Western Civilization, and that is what he also finds disdainful.”
