Bryan Fischer: Don't Just Ban Muslim Immigration, Pay Muslims Who Are Already Here To Leave

As we noted yesterday, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer was years ahead of Donald Trump in calling for a ban on Muslim immigration to America, so he naturally took a bit of a victory lap on his radio program today in light of the fact that his radical position is now being championed by the Republican presidential frontrunner.

But Fischer took his position a step further, insisting that it is not enough to simply ban Muslims from entering the country and so the government should actually be paying Muslims who are already here to leave.

"Let's use American resources to help these people find a home in the Muslim world," Fischer said. "I suggest that we assist Muslims in America with repatriation costs. Let's help them find a home in the Muslim world. They can live in a place that shares the values, that shares their religious principles, that shares their religious practice, that shares their cultural customs. They can be at home, don't have to chafe against our religious liberty, don't have to chafe against our Judeo-Christian values system. They can be at home and I believe we ought to be content to use our resources to help them get there."

Sandy Rios Hails Donald Trump's 'Common Sense' Ban On Muslim Immigrants

American Family Association official Sandy Rios doesn’t see how supporting Donald Trump’s call to discriminate against Muslims conflicts with the Religious Right’s supposed commitment to “religious liberty.”

You see, according to Rios, Islam is not a religion.

Rios, an American Family Radio host who also serves as the AFA’s director of governmental affairs, criticized Dick Cheney today for his condemnation of Trump’s plan, insisting on her radio program that Muslims are different from other groups of people because many, if not all, of them are “enemies of your country and of the Christian faith who are bound and determined to murder and destroy and to subjugate you.”

“Islam is a political system, it is tiny bit the worship of Allah and a whole lot a political system, much like communism,” she said.

Rios also told listeners this morning that it is only “common sense” to bar Muslim immigration to the U.S. until, in Trump’s words, “our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

Urging congressional Republicans to specifically block the resettlement of Syrian refugees, Rios said, “Donald Trump, as far I’m concerned, is right. Until Congress can figure it out, we should have a moratorium on bringing more Muslims into the country.” 

Joseph Farah: Obama 'Facilitating, Enabling And Empowering' Terrorists

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah claims in a column today that when then-candidate Barack Obama said in 2008 that his presidential campaign was “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” by helping working families wrest power away from Wall Street and CEOs, he really meant that he would be aiding terrorism.

Farah writes that the policy of the Obama administration has been “facilitating, enabling and empowering” terrorist attacks, and wise Americans are “arming themselves in record numbers” to thwart the president’s “subversive, treasonous policy.”

“Obama is tearing the nation apart,” he adds. “What else do you suppose is the endgame?”

It’s clear the federal government has no plans to offer protection to American citizens against future attacks by jihadis. Just the opposite. The government is facilitating, enabling and empowering them. That’s the policy.

It’s becoming apparent the plan represents nothing less than to terrorize the American public into total submission to government. The very word “Islam,” by the way, means “submission.” How convenient. How coincidental.

More than a few Americans have noticed the trend. They are arming themselves in record numbers. And this is a smart thing to do.

But it’s hardly a substitute for reining in the power of Washington, which has become the No. 1 enemy of the citizenry.

If you never quite understood what Obama meant when he threatened to begin “the fundamental transformation of America,” now maybe you get it.

It’s the most divisive, subversive, treasonous policy of any president in American history. Sadly, the entire Democratic Party establishment supports it. And, even more tragically, the entire Republican Party establishment does nothing to stop it.



The Obama administration is now in incitement mode.

It would like nothing better than for Americans who recognize the danger to turn to ugliness, revenge, violence, hatred. Sadly, no one may be able to stop such incidents – and Obama surely knows that. Divide and conquer is the strategy. Obama is tearing the nation apart. What else do you suppose is the endgame?

CBN's David Brody Urges Trump To Go All In With Attack On Islam, Quran

We have been critical of the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody for his fawning coverage of right-wing political figures and for acting as publicity agent for Christian-nation activist David Lane.  Turns out Brody was just warming up.

Yesterday, CBN's David Brody tweeted his admiration for Donald Trump’s “bravery” — later amended to “guts” and “moxie” — for arguing that the U.S. should stop all Muslims from entering  the country. And today, Brody takes his Trump promotion to a whole new level, setting aside his battered “journalism” hat and offering Trump advice on campaign strategy.

Brody taking a turn as a Trump political operative is less surprising than the content of his advice. Brody suggests — actually it’s more like pleading — that Trump turn his political campaign into a theological attack on Islam and its Holy Scripture, saying that “if Trump is going to come out with a statement like he did about all Muslims, then he might as well go for the whole enchilada, which is explaining the underlying theological problems with Islam and the Quran.”

Brody says Trump has “a real opening” to show leadership and “shed light in this area” the way he has on immigration.

And when it comes to evangelicals, Trump has a real opportunity here to thoughtfully delve into the taboo issues of what is in the Quran: that is, Sharia Law and Jihad. But it can’t be just shock value on stage. It can't be just for huge applause lines. To resonate with evangelicals, it will have to be deeper than that. He can forge a deeper connection with evangelicals if he’ll have the courage to be a truth-teller on the core issue, which lies in the teachings of the Quran. If he makes it about just banning Muslims into America then that is shortsighted and he will lose politically. But if he turns this into a movement to get Islamic leaders to denounce Sharia and Jihad (concepts that are in their own book) and moves the ball down the field in that regard, then he’ll resonate with evangelicals on this issue.

But Brody makes it clear that Muslims are not the real audience:

I'm not saying Islamic leaders will be listening to Trump on this because of his past statements but evangelicals are listening and they want to hear the unvarnished truth about the concerns regarding Islam spoken without a filter. Trump has no problem speaking without a filter, that's for sure.

The separation of church and state, which protects religious liberty in America, has taken plenty of hits from the Religious Right in recent decades. And we already know that Trump cares nothing for respectful pluralism or public discourse. That may be why it seems so shocking that Brody is urging Trump to ramp up his already rank religious bigotry. Brody’s call to turn our already divisive political climate into an explicit Holy War is an idea whose awful, terrible, badness cannot be overstated.

Liberty Counsel Brags That Kim Davis Is Attending Matt Bevin's Inauguration

Liberty Counsel is crowing that its client, Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis, was “invited to attend the festivities” surrounding today’s inauguration of Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin.

Bevin was an outspoken defender of Davis’s refusal to follow a federal court order that her office grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples after the U.S. Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling. Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver has no doubts that Bevin’s “absolute” backing of Davis helped put him over the top in the election.

“There is no question that the case of Kim Davis and the issue of religious freedom played a role in the Governor’s lopsided win,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Kentuckians favor traditional values, and they are tired of the political elites represented by former Governor Beshear and Attorney General Jack Conway. The voters sided with religious liberty,” said Staver. 

“On the night he won the election, Gov. Bevin tweeted that he would bring ‘Christian principles to Frankfort.’ During his campaign and following his election, Gov. Bevin promised he would issue an executive order respecting the religious liberty of Kim Davis and other Kentucky clerks. We look forward to a new day in Kentucky,” concluded Staver. 

Liberty Counsel reports that Davis will “attend the inaugural events, including the worship service, a parade, and the public swearing-in ceremony on the Capitol steps.”

It’s hard to know whether Davis’ invitation and attendance are really a further public embrace by Bevin or more like the “invitation” Liberty Counsel arranged for Davis during Pope Francis’s visit to DC, when she was smuggled into the Vatican embassy for what Liberty Counsel called a private meeting with, and endorsement from, the pontiff — and which Vatican officials characterized as more of a receiving line meet-and-greet.

Liberty Counsel’s efforts to get Davis chosen as TIME magazine’s person of the year were less successful.

Jan Markell: Getting Our YouTube Page Shut Down Is Just Like Nazi Germany

Last month, the End Times radio host Jan Markell saw her YouTube channel get shut down for supposedly violating YouTube's terms of service. Her channel was quickly restored once the right-wing news site WorldNetDaily reported on it, with YouTube admitting that Markell's channel had "been removed mistakenly."

Markell, of course, is not convinced that this was a simple mistake on the part of YouTube because she's pretty sure that it is really a sign that anti-Christian Nazism is spreading over America.

Saying that godless leftists are in control of everything from YouTube to Facebook and are working to persecute Christians, Markell warned in an email to supporters today that her trouble with YouTube is "harbinger of things to come. Fascism starts slowly. It did in Nazi Germany and it has here":

[O]n Saturday, November 28, all of Olive Tree's YouTubes were shut down due to "inappropriate content."  We had had a warning or two starting two weeks earlier. But mid-day on November 28 all the lights were turned off.

After an inquiry by World Net Daily, the lights came back on. They were confronted by a powerhouse and YouTube, owned by Google, said it was all a mistake, but that would have been 2-3 weeks of mistakes on their part.

In Nazi Germany, Germans in the early 1930s were promised a return to the "glory days" after the devastation of WWI. Government then started to paint a picture of the good life returning, but only if government could become their god.

The Germans thought that was a great idea. They hung onto every promise of "hope and change." They simply had no idea that Hitler's "hope and change" would cause the swastika to be burned across the very fabric of Europe. Once it began to be burned, they looked the other way as the "good life" was going to return for them -- or so they thought. Hope and change agents always promise utopia.

There are haunting comparisons in America to Nazi Germany.  It's easy to get comfortable with government.  Human nature wants to be taken care of. It's easy to let compromise gradually turn into tyranny and that's a frog-in-the-kettle phenomenon. It never happens overnight.

Of course, we have had our YouTube account shut down on multiple occasions, which rather undermines her conspiracy theory.

What Rick Santorum Gets Wrong About ISIS

The New York Times came out with a story yesterday about why ISIS leaders are hoping that the U.S. sends in troops to battle them in order to fulfill their prophecy of waging an apocalyptic showdown with American forces in Syria, where the true forces of Islam will defeat Western crusaders.

Former Sen. Rick Santorum may want to read the report and similar observations from other ISIS experts, as he told the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins on his “Washington Watch” program yesterday that ISIS is glad that President Obama opposes sending ground troops into Syria and that he has denied that the terrorist group represents Muslims at large.

The GOP presidential candidate said that the U.S. should in fact “identify and accept the fact” that ISIS is “an Islamic Sunni caliphate” and then “invade their land.”

He went on to say that ISIS is not perverting the Islamic faith but “really is an orthodox interpretation of Islam.”

Pat Robertson: Islam Is Not A Religion But A Military Group 'Bent On World Domination'

Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson said that people should not view Islam as a religious faith since it is a “political system masquerading as a religion” and is really “an aggressive, military, disciplined” group “bent on world domination.”

“It isn’t a ‘religion’ as such,” he said, claiming that unlike Christianity, Islam is obsessed with violently converting people throughout the world.

“We’re not dealing with a religion,” Robertson continued. “People say, ‘Oh, it’s just terrible, you shouldn’t discriminate one religion versus the other.’ Well, yes you can if one religion is actually a political system that is intent on dominating you and killing you. Christianity isn’t intent on dominating and killing you, it just isn’t.”

He said more people would agree with him once we start “telling it like it is.”

Tim Wildmon: People Think Obama's A Muslim Because He 'Identifies More With Islam Than Any Other Religion'

In a column for the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal on Sunday, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon speculated that a large number of Americans believe that President Obama is secretly a Muslim because “he is always so sensitive about criticism of Islam” and “clearly … identifies more with Islam than any other religion ‘for all practical purposes.’” This, Wildmon wrote, explains why the president “defends Islam any chance he gets.”

Wildmon went on to warn readers to be wary of their Muslim neighbors because terrorists “often blend into western countries well because an essential part of jihad is to deceive the infidels into believing you are a ‘nice guy’ until the day you are ready to strike.”

Given this strategy, he asked, “how in the world are Americans supposed to tell the good Muslims from the bad Muslims?”

According to a September CNN poll, 29 percent of the general American public believes that he is. Every time there is an act of Islamic jihad like in San Bernardino, California, this week and Obama pretends there is no connection to Islam and terrorism it only causes more people to consider this possibility.

Why he is always so sensitive about criticism of Islam? My view is clearly Obama identifies more with Islam than any other religion “for all practical purposes.” This would explain why he defends Islam any chance he gets. In fact, there were news reports on Thursday that his administration was putting pressure on the FBI not to label what happened in California “terrorism” despite all the evidence mounting that points to the fact that it was. Evidence like building bombs in their garage, subscribing to jihadi materials, etc.

It bears repeating that while all Muslims are not terrorists, almost without exception all the terrorists are Muslims. Why is that? There is rarely any context given to what is going on with the jihad movement wreaking havoc around the world. The news media just moves from one attack to the next. Many westerners are ignorant of why these people continue to do what they do. And if they are indeed perverting Islam – and Obama and others say that they are – then tell us exactly how and call on the true Islamic leaders and countries of the world to please stand up and join those of us trying to defeat these “radicals.” I’ve not heard Obama one time call for Muslim leaders to take the lead on confronting this ideology that has “hijacked” their religion.

Those committed to Islamic jihad are not crazy people and they often blend into western countries well because an essential part of jihad is to deceive the infidels into believing you are a “nice guy” until the day you are ready to strike. That is what happened with Farook. In fact, the L.A. Times interviewed some who worked with him and here is what they wrote: “Co-workers told The Times they were shocked to hear Farook’s name linked to the shooting. Two who were in the restroom when the bullets began to fly said he was quiet and polite, with no obvious grudges.” They also described him as “very religious.”

So given how these jihadists operate, as we saw in Boston, Chattanooga and other places – how in the world are Americans supposed to tell the good Muslims from the bad Muslims?

Maybe President Obama will call a conference of world-wide leaders to condemn jihad and hold the event in Mecca. He just did that in Paris to combat climate change. Maybe he will do that and rally the Islamic world to fight this jihadi ideology within its own societies. Yeah. Maybe…

Right-Wing Activists Praise Trump's Plan To Ban Muslim Immigration

Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, the group who put out the bogus poll of Muslim-American views that was cited by Donald Trump in his press release calling for a ban Muslim immigration, appeared on Breitbart’s Sirius XM radio show today to defend Trump’s proposal.

Gaffney, like Trump, promotes birther conspiracy theories along with bizarre claims that Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia law advocates are taking over the U.S. government and both political parties, touted his poll as “an insight into how the Muslims that we polled felt and it’s worrisome.”

“Fortunately, Donald Trump, like you, I’m not endorsing him, I’m not speaking of his fitness, I’m just saying that in response to events that have taken place in this country and elsewhere in recent months has recognized what I think most Americans recognize, that we don’t actually want more jihadists in this country,” he said, insisting that Americans “don’t think augmenting them willy-nilly in the name of some kind of sense that they are entitled to come here is a sound policy.”

He continued: “We have called for a moratorium on the introduction of still more Muslims, particularly from countries with a tradition of Islamic supremacism.”

Gaffney wasn’t alone. Fox News pundit Todd Starnes also defend the GOP presidential front-runner plan:

Ann Coulter joined in on the fun:

As did David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, who lauded Trump’s courage:

American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer said Trump is merely advocating what he called for years ago:

Conservative columnist Diana West called it a “perfect” plan:

John Nolte of Breitbart offered a more unusual defense:
