EMAD ELDIN ADEEB: Comparing the culture, the competence between Vladamir Putin and Biden, how do you see the two men now running the world?

TUCKER CARLSON: If this were boxing the fight would be called by the medic. So[…]I don’t plan to ever leave my country, my family’s been there hundreds of years and I love it and I am a patriotic American and I grieve when I see that the president is non compos mentis[…]
The most radicalizing thing I would just say for me in the eight days I spent in Moscow was not simply the leader of the country who of course is impressive, it’s the largest landmass in the world and it’s wildly diverse[…]hard to run a country like that for 24 years[…]
What was radicalizing[…]for me was the city of Moscow[…]Nicer than any city in my country[…]
ADEEB: You should challenge in the roles of an interview, and you’re a master in your business[…]You should challenge some ideas[…]You didn’t talk about freedom of speech in Russia, you did not talk about Navalny, about assassinations, about restrictions on opposition in the coming elections

CARLSON: I didn’t talk about the things that every other American media outlet talks about

ADEEB: Why, yes?[…]
CARLSON: Because those are covered and because I have spent my life talking to people who run countries in various countries and have concluded the following. That every leader kills people, including my leader. Every leader kills people, some kill more than others. Leadership requires killing people, sorry, that’s why I wouldn’t want to be a leader. That press restriction is universal in the United States, I know because I’ve lived it. Ask my former – I’ve had a lot of jobs. And I’ve done this for 34 years and I know how it works and there’s more censorship in Russia than there is in the United States but there is a great deal in the United States. And so at a certain point, it’s like people can decide whether they think, what countries they think are better, what systems they think are better

At what point is it time to start to at least use rubber bullets, or use some sort of tear gas to prevent this and quell this invasion? They have no regard for the process, for legal immigration. And at what point do we use real force? You have to be willing to do it

Somebody asked me the other day, they said, Charlie, why do you -- why are you so pro-Israel? One of the reasons I'm pro-Israel is that when Israel gets invaded on their border, they defend their border. If two -- if 300 Palestinian Arabs tried to run in at Israel like that, it wouldn't end well for them. We're the only superpower on the planet where we just allow people to run over, run them over. And we're supposed to -- unless -- you understand, those military age males are now gonna get cell phones, food, cash, flights to the interior of the United States

Why do we have a military? Why do we have men with guns if we can't use them? Having a country means being able to draw a line on the ground and say, this is our sovereign territory. If you enter, we have lethal force, and we're willing to use it. And you can escalate. You don't have to start with lethal force. You can start with rubber bullets, start with tear gas. You can start with firing next to them. Say, hey. We have weapons. We're willing to use them[…]
Where are all the women and kids? Those are the men that will go into your communities and break into your homes and rape your women, take your children. But, hey, they're -- they're dreamers[…]
Remember the whole whip fiasco? My position all along is, yes, it wasn't true, but of course you should be able to use whips against foreigners that are coming into your country. Why is that controversial?

Candace Owens and Faits et Documents #transphobia #conspiracy mediamatters.org

From the March 11, 2024, edition of Candace Owens, hosted by The Daily Wire:

[…]There was just an article that was published in the Daily Mail. Here is the headline: "The proof France's first lady wasn't born a man." I was like "what?"

So I of course, instantly read it because what a bizarre thing that you're even needing to present proof[…]When I saw this photo, the first thing I noticed was that the person on the far left, the boy that actually looks like Brigitte Macron[…]
I saw this when I was like, actually looks like she might actually be the guy. Maybe she's a dead ringer for her brother, but I don't see any resemblance there with the little girl[…]
When I then read the article, there was no debunking whatsoever. They just were calling people that were saying otherwise far-right. You know, all the typical buzzwords: far-right, conspiracy theorists, racist, sexist, it's homophobic, it's antisemitism[…]
So the quote unquote conspiracy theory is actually a three year thorough investigation that was conducted by journalists that were working with genealogists. It was published in six issues in Faits et Documents[…]My French is not that good, but they[…]published six issues unpacking what they had discovered after a three year investigation and here is what they are saying

So again, I'm gonna say allegedly this is what they have published their theory is that the first lady Brigitte Macron was actually born Jean Michel[…]John Michael lived as a man for 30 years, fathered five children and then transitioned at the age of 30 to become Brigitte[…]
They actually used as a part of their investigation, Chinese software, and this is a side by side. It is such a dead ringer[…]
Here's a headline from The Telegraph. "Brigitte Macron sues women who claimed that she is transgender"[…]She's suing them for violation of privacy and fundamental personal rights plus illicit use of her image. What does that mean? That doesn't mean anything


Chaya Raichik #transphobia #pratt mediamatters.org

On the afternoon of January 4, Libs of TikTok creator Chaya Raichik shared a meme on X suggesting that multiple recent school shooters have been transgender. Raichik added the claim — spreading rapidly among anti-trans accounts — that the alleged perpetrator of a shooting in an Iowa school that day identified as “genderfluid,” adding, “What’s going on?”

But one of the photos in the meme Raichik shared — supposedly of the shooter in the 2022 Uvalde, Texas, school shooting — was of an innocent woman

Far-right 4chan trolls had originally shared photos of an unrelated trans woman, identified by NBC News only as “Sam,” to claim that she had perpetrated the massacre. The actual shooter, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, was killed on the scene by police

Nick Fuentes #wingnut #psycho mediamatters.org

Former President Donald Trump dined with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago. As noted at the time, Trump made numerous remarks around the visit but declined to make any statements condemning Fuentes[…]

I am not a Republican. I am a Trump cultist, and I want everyone to know that. I am not a Republican. Do not lump me in with them. I am not a Republican. I do not support McCarthy. I do not support McConnell. I do not support Haley or DeSantis. I do not watch Fox News. I don't support any of that

I am a Donald Trump cultist. I am a soldier for Donald Trump. I am part of — I serve at the personal pleasure of Donald Trump, my supreme leader. I am part of the paramilitary wing of the Trump movement. I am part of the Revolutionary Guard

I do not answer to the Pentagon. I do not answer to the civilian government. I answer — I am the Praetorian Guard of Donald Trump. If Donald Trump ordered me to do an extrajudicial killing, I would perform it

I do not swear an oath to the Constitution. I swear an oath to Art of the Deal[…]
I work for Donald Trump personally. Now, I'm not — I don't — I'm not contracted. This is just like, you know, but — I do. But I would work for him like that. I am part of the paramilitary wing[…]
If Donald Trump called me up and said, look, we need to capture my political enemies and torture them, you're OK with that, right? This is totally off the books. This is a black op. If he called me up and told me to do it, I would. I would be like, sir, yes — I wouldn't even say, yes, Mr. President. I would say it will be done. I would say it will be done, Supreme Leader

Michelle Bachmann and Charlie Kirk #racist mediamatters.org

MICHELLE BACHMANN (GUEST): Maybe our President Biden should learn what the truth is of what's going on in Gaza versus what's going on in Israel. So, could you imagine he handed a check for 100 billion dollars of our money just a couple of weeks after they slit the throats of Israelis, he is not willing to sign 14 billion to help the Israelis, the money is flowing in for Gaza, all the money is coming in from Iran

And that's what the people of Gaza are. They're basically hide mercenaries. That is their industry. Terrorism is their industry. That's why you have more miles of tunnels, Charlie, than you have the New York subway. Because they have one industry in Gaza and that's terrorism

So, it's time that Gaza ends. The two million people who live there, they are clever assassins, they need to be removed from that land. That land needs to be turned into a national park, and since they're the voluntary mercenaries for Iran, they need to be dropped on the doorstep of Iran, let Iran deal with those people

CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): Michelle Bachmann, everybody, she does a great job, doesn't she? And, I got to be honest, you know, I look at Israel, and Israel says we never want another person into our country that doesn't share our values. They said they don't want refugees, they don't want any of these people

BACHMANN: What a concept

KIRK: I want American immigration policy to be like that

BACHMANN: Yes. Yes

KIRK: I want American immigration policy to be like that

BACHMANN: Yes, yes, I agree

KIRK: I want American immigration policy to be the Israeli immigration policy. Big walls, lots of deportations, and no people that hate us

Charlie Kirk #wingnut #fundie mediamatters.org

So they didn’t turn the water on, things burned, this is the guy who told landowners they couldn't use water to fight the fires while the fires were still small. Is it because he believed that water was sacred and we must worship the water? Or is it because of equity, was it because there were certain peoples’ homes burning that he wanted them to burn?

They believe, in pagan Hawaiian culture, we must worship water, not life. Wokeism is just a return of an old god. The Bible was written as a refutation, it was obsessed with challenging this idea – specifically of Egypt. This is no different. You believe — they believed the Nile was holy. And they believe water is so holy that you can't use it to fight a fire? That’s what he’s implying here, well that same guy did not allow the release of the water. This is the one thing that is coming clear in Maui. And the media couldn’t care less, because I think they’re afraid of what they’ll find. That this is not climate change, not global warming, not carbon emissions. This is left-wing ideologues that allowed the island to burn. That there is blood on the hands of the water worshippers. Christianity broke us free of pagan slavery. So did the Hebrew Bible, by the way. Challenged this idea of worshiping the earth, that God is not in nature, that God created nature. Could it be that Maui did not have to burn if they didn’t believe such wacky, goofy, pagan stuff?

Greg Gutfeld #sexist mediamatters.org

Citation From the January 23, 2024, edition of Fox News' The Five:

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): When AOC happily psychoanalyzes groups of people, then it's an invitation to return the favor, right? If she can do it. She's saying that people who support Trump are projecting their masculine insecurity. But isn't she saying that because of her own insecurities about her boyfriend's masculinity, right? She must realize how soft and buttery and feminine progressive males are, and it's hard to get horny with a snowflake. So it's why -- I think this is why she's so pro-illegal immigration. She's projecting her secret desires for young, virile men who are coming here in droves, and she's stuck with pajama boy and it's driving her crazy. All these Trump supporters, men, MMA fighters, drives her nuts

Tucker Carlson #wingnut #transphobia #conspiracy mediamatters.org

Within what seemed like minutes, we saw pictures of the rifles and the pistol. We now have horrifying bodycam footage from within the school, so unsettling we're not going to show it to you. But somehow we can't see the manifesto in which the killer explains why she killed. Why is that? It's not accidental. Well you know exactly why it is. Because it would make the obvious undeniable. The trans movement is targeting Christians, including with violence. Most Christian leaders in this country don't want to admit that. Admitting it might force them to take deeply unfashionable positions. But it is true, and anyone who is paying attention knows that it's true, and so like most true things at this point, it is officially suppressed.

...

Yesterday's massacre did not happen because of lax gun laws. Yesterday's massacre happened because of a deranged and demonic ideology that is infecting this country with the encouragement of people like Joe Biden. Let's start by being honest about that.

Stew Peters #wingnut #transphobia #psycho #racist mediamatters.org

Rumble host and X influencer Stew Peters called for the murder of Catholic Charities workers[…]

STEW PETERS: These people cross into Mexico and coach illegals on how to get admitted here. They pay for their bus tickets to the cities that you and I live in[…]
A lot of people say that we need troops on the border who will shoot the people trying to sneak across. I agree. They're invading our country. The military's sole function is to protect its country from a physical invasion and to protect you and I and the people that I love and the people that you love from any harm that might come as a result of her invasion[…]We need troops on the border that will shoot people that are trying to invade our country

That'd be a good first step. But you know what a better second step would be? Shooting everyone involved with these fake charities

Peters later implored his audience to buy a gun and learn how to shoot[…]“If they come for your guns, you better be ready to die in a pile of spent shell casings”

Shortly after talking about buying guns and learning how to use them, Peters also turned his attention to public schools, stating: “I don’t think that we should just bail and go homeschool. No, we freaking fund these public schools. We go there and we fight them and we root them out and we restore our schools to teach what they're supposed to. Hundreds of thousands of kids are attending Christian schools — not fake ones like the ones that we have Pride flags in. Can you believe that?”

He then talked about killing doctors who provide gender-affirming care, stating:

STEW PETERS: We're really lucky because the Bible itself already tells us what the punishment should be. From the gospel of Matthew, quote: “But who so shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me. It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” That sounds like a great idea. Isn't it?

Steve Deace #wingnut #transphobia mediamatters.org

Yes. Yes. Yes. Let Disney groom the kids. Let Disney groom the kids because, I mean, I've got a few Disney stock in my portfolio and I'm not rich enough, so, yes. Cut those genitals off, Disney, yes. Yes. I need that yield.

...

So there's Mike Pence the pious. Mike the Pious, jumping on Fox News to say, yes, Disney, trans those kids, pollute those kids, demonically influence those kids. Florida's GDP isn't good enough. Soul-rape those children, Disney, for my technocratic conservatism. Hell, literally, no. Hell no.

...

You're not only no threat whatsoever against the demonic spirit of the age, you will turn on us and turn us in, and that's who Mike Pence is. That's him.

Matt Walsh #wingnut mediamatters.org

How would Thomas Jefferson and the Founding Fathers respond to our government right now? And, obviously, the answer is they would violently overthrow it. Like, if our Founding Fathers were on the scene right now, January 6th would be a wakj in the park. It would be a picnic compared to what they would do. And they wouldn't even think about it. Like, if Thomas Jefferson came back from the dead and looked at our government now, he would turn to us, the citizens, and say, what are you people doing? You haven't invaded Washington yet and killed all these people? What are you waiting for? What's the problem here? What's the holdup, folks?

Just taxes alone. Alright? Not even taking everything else into account -- the giant behemoth central government which is, by the way, far larger and more powerful and more invasive than the government that the Founders rebelled against. They had significantly more freedom than we do now. It's not even close, actually… These guys rebelled over a tax on tea… think about that. A tax on tea. Well, we have -- we have taxes on tea. You know, if you go buy a Snapple or something, it's gonna be taxed. But we have a tax on literally everything. You wake up in the morning and you turn on your light, and you're already getting taxed, okay? You can't even get out of your bedroom before the taxes set in. You go into your kitchen and you pour your taxed coffee into your taxed mug, or if you prefer tea, that'll be taxed too. And you get in your car, which is taxed, and it's running on gasoline, which is taxed. And you get onto the highway that you pay a toll to even get on the highway in the first place, and you go to work. And you're getting taxed just to work. Your income is taxed before you even get your hands on it.

Thomas Jefferson would not even consider putting up with this. There'd be nothing to talk about. He'd be calling for an armed rebellion and insisting that the IRS building be -- be torched to the ground. That's what he would say. Like, that's the lineage of our country. These are the men who founded our country. That's the attitude they had. They weren't shy about violence, obviously. And they were much more, perhaps, we would say liberal in its application -- liberal, understood it in a different way -- than we are today. Just the fact of the matter.

Candace Owens #transphobia mediamatters.org

I have such great contempt for trans individuals and everything that they are doing right now in our society. To me, I've yet to meet a trans person that I thought was a good individual. Go ahead, you can use that clip verbatim. Circulate it, George Soros and your goons because somebody needs to say it. This has gone on far enough, right? They are hateful, narcissistic human beings. It's very obviously -- it's very obvious that they hate women, that they are misogynist at their core. I'm talking about men that put on lipstick and say -- not only that they're women, mocking us to our faces, saying I'm a woman, I'm just like you, I can do whatever you want.

These people are demonic, ok? The trans agenda is demonic. Any actor, actress, individual that supports this is supporting something that is demonic. These are demons in our society, without question. And if you can stand by idly and watch this take place, to watch children that are being told they can remove their private parts, to watch people march into capitol buildings and demand that people under the age of 21 be allowed to ruin their perfectly good normal bodies for the rest of their lives, to take pills and to go through extreme bouts of depression -- if you can watch all of that and stand back and say, yeah, no, I'm okay with it, all in the pursuit of equality because you keep saying that to make yourself feel good, you're a demon. And that is just the facts of the matter.

Steven Crowder #wingnut #conspiracy #transphobia mediamatters.org

[TikTok is] not allowed in China for different reasons, because all the trans, you know, infiltration that happens there where people want you to text them on TikTok, slide into their DMs so your parents don't know and they can encourage you to transition. They believe that will poison the minds of the youth in China.

So they don't allow it in China, but now they want to lobby the United States to allow it because they know the irreparable damage that it can do to young people.

The role of the government - certainly the one legitimate role is to protect its citizens both from exterior and interior threats, and I would say Chinese propaganda and some content that they won't even allow in their country because they've seen the studies, they know the irreparable damage. Yeah, I would say that that's a legitimate --that falls under the legitimate purview of government, to prevent and eliminate that threat. By eliminate, I mean the app.

Candace Owens #wingnut #transphobia mediamatters.org

Obviously, Dylan Mulvaney is not a little girl. If we lived in a sane society, we would all say it's not normal for somebody that is supposed to be a grown man to have a fetish because this is what this is. You're watching a fetish play out in real time about being a little girl. That's not normal. That is something that should scare us. That is something that if you see, you should not want around your young children. If my little girl was around a man that wanted to play dress up in little girl clothing, I would pull her away from him. I would probably call the police. This is -- in a sane society, we would say this is something that we cannot have. This would be a sign, right? People tell you that there's something wrong with them, you should listen to them. But no, things are upside down.

Michael Knowles #wingnut #homophobia mediamatters.org

The inevitable logical conclusion of the pride movement was we're going to go into your kids kindergarten and we're gonna teach them wild ideologies about sex and gender and, not only the relations between the sexes and within the sexes, but even one's understanding of human nature itself. And people have just said enough, enough with that. The DeSantis campaign is capitalizing on this right now. And DeSantis is being pilloried, not just by the libs, but by the squishes on the right for an ad that people are saying is homophobic.

So, really leaning into this online sigma male, socially conservative, no, we're not gonna tolerate this rainbow pride stuff anymore… we're not going to enshrine special protections for this disordered view of human nature. We're gonna be nice to people. We're gonna tolerate things within reason, but no, we're gonna roll back the pride movement that's now made it all the way into your kid's kindergarten classroom.

Will Cain and Greg Gutfeld #wingnut #conspiracy mediamatters.org

Will Cain: I choose cult specifically as a word because [climate change] seems to be despite its invocations of science, this is a faith based movement that requires total dedication.

Greg Gutfeld: Also the thing is -- the line -- if you think something's really important, that's part of being in a cult. You will justify anything… Including, like, mass shootings. Like somebody shoots up a church -- it's because they have a greater idea that's usually racist or what not

Michael Knowles #transphobia mediamatters.org

Great new law in Kansas. Kansas has become the first state to pass a bill that defines "woman" as someone who is biologically born female. That's it. That's what a woman is. Which means that this will ban men who identify as transgender women from using single-sex areas designated for women… the bill defines a female as someone "whose biological reproductive system is developed to produce ova," while male refers to anyone "whose reproductive system is developed to fertilize the ova of a female."

This is a beautiful bill because it doesn't just say don't trans the kids. It doesn't just say wait till eight to introduce kids to transgenderism in schools. Once they turn nine, that's fine. It doesn't just say only minors can't -- it bans transgenderism for all practical purposes in the state for everybody. And it has to. In order for women to have the right to have their own bathrooms, you have to ban transgenderism entirely. You can't just ban it for the kids. It's got to be entirely. In order for women to be able to have their own locker rooms at the gym, you have to ban transgenderism entirely. In order to protect businesses from having to participate in weird, occult sexual rituals like the transgender transition, you have to ban transgenderism entirely.

I love this bill because it is so much more aggressive than the other bills we've seen. The other -- I don't mean to knock the other governors and in the statehouses, they've done a great job laying the groundwork -- the groundwork, rather. But this bill goes much further. And it reminds us of a truth in politics that Republicans all too often forget -- you're either on offense or you're on defense. You're either making gains in the culture or you're losing ground in the culture. There's no standing still. There's no status quo. There's no neutrality. And what the conservatives have screwed up on for at least 50 years now, probably more, is the libs make some crazy aggressive play and then we try to dial it back by about 5 to 10 percent. Or worse, we try to slow it down by about 5 to 10 percent.

Charlie Kirk #racist #wingnut #conspiracy mediamatters.org

Citation From the November 7, 2023, edition of Salem Media Group's The Charlie Kirk Show

CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): Jews have been some of the largest funders of cultural Marxist ideas and supporters of those ideas over the last 30 or 40 years. Stop supporting causes that hate you. Now, you might say, well, how is one thing applied to the other? If you train a generation, if you do everything through an oppressor, oppressed lens, they will apply that lens to the Israel-Hamas conflict. The same way that they apply it to the police issue, the gender issue, good guy, bad guy, somebody on top, somebody on bottom

Until you cleanse that ideology from the hierarchy in the academic elite of the west, there will not be a safe future. I'm not going to say Israel won't exist, but Israel will be in jeopardy as long as the western children, children of the west, are being taught, with primarily Jewish dollars, subsidizing it, to view everything through oppressor oppressed dynamic. Until you shed that ideology, you will not be able to build the case for Israel, because they view Israel as an oppressor

Daily Wire host calls the US soccer team “treasonous” for using rainbow colors in one of their crests at the World Cup

Matt Walsh: “If I was in charge of the country, they wouldn't be allowed back into the country”

As noted earlier, this rainbow crest is being used alongside the traditional crest, in part because of the extremely cruel anti-LGBTQ laws in Qatar.

MATT WALSH (HOST): The corporate gay pride stuff is just sheep's blood on the door signaling that they are the chosen people so the angel of cancellation passes them over. But as far as symbolism goes, I think it is appropriate that they should change the colors of the American flag with the colors of the LGBT flag. I mean, it's horrendous, it's traitorous, it's treasonous -- if I was in charge of the country, they wouldn't be allowed back into the country -- but it's also appropriate because the LGBT nation, LGBTistan we may call it, is, after all, the country that corporate America as well as the United States government seeks to represent. It is the nation that the left pledges its allegiance to. It is the country that wishes to colonize the world and export its ideas and values to corners of the globe that have no interest in them.

Now, I've often said that the alphabet club is a religious cult. And it is that, certainly. But maybe, on second thought, it's better understood in this way, as a country. It has its own flag, its own national holidays, its own myths and traditions, its own sports teams, and it has its own government too, which is formerly known as the United States government.

Now some people predict that we will eventually in the future become two countries, there's going to be some civil war. But the point is we're already two countries. There's one that salutes the Pride flag and despises the American flag, and one that salutes the American flag and has no use for the Pride flag. At this point, it's only a matter of making the split official, I suppose. Something that we will probably never do, but we should.

Teve Deace, Todd Erzen and Aaron McIntire #homophobia #fundie mediamatters.org

TEVE DEACE (HOST): Needless to say, it has been three years. I haven't physically seen or spoken to her in two years. She has my number blocked and moved to another state with the person the government labels as her wife. Steve, all of this stuff is demonic. Satan knows that the family structure is God's greatest weapon on earth against evil. The greatest way Satan can grab dominion is to tear apart families of believers. Parents will do anything for their kids. Almost all parents would not risk losing their relationship with their kids over this, so almost all cave in and affirm[…]
TODD ERZEN (CO-HOST): I just -- through all this, you can see how patently obvious the slang that caused a lot of these people that aren't supporting this man was from the beginning. The whole love is love thing, because this is a father who's implementing a standard to keep a relationship, right relationship, to keep connection. Where is the love from the daughter? Casting all people who don't agree with you out into the leper colony? The people that raised you?[…]
AARON MCINTIRE (CO-HOST): At the time we're taping this, my son, Ben, not even two years-old, I cannot[…]I bristle at the thought of him going through something like this. Being tempted in the ways, and following through on that temptation in the ways that your daughter has been[…]I kind of understand that. But I think each of us here can think of examples of fathers -- I'm thinking of one right now, of fathers whose family, whether it's the wife or the children, have gone through something like this. And instead of turning to the direction that you turned, or staying the course that you are on, completely capitulated. And boy, howdy. You wanna talk about destruction? That guy's a shell of himself. Not a real person[…]completely sold out[…]He's a joke of a male. Just a joke of a male, and you would be too. You would be too right now, but by God's grace. And props to you, brother, you stayed on the narrow path

Ali Alexander #wingnut #conspiracy mediamatters.org

I haven't read the full indictment, the 45-page indictment against the 45th president, which was entirely on purpose. I mean, you begin to see that Jack Smith was selected because of his pettiness. That Merrick Garland picked this garbage, ugly, junkyard dog to prosecute and persecute Trump in the worst of ways. And this guy is just petty. He's — it's — one of the great things — and I'm just like kind of processing this out loud with you all — one of the great things about yesterday — and when I say great, they're all horrible.

...

But one of the great things about yesterday was finally — you know, I've been waiting — I've been waiting for six years, six or five years, for people to start sounding like me. And finally on Fox News, I heard multiple guests say, “This is the worst prosecution in American history. This is the worst — this is the worst legal case in American history. This is the worst.” And it is. It is. People don't like it when I say this is worse than the Civil War. This is worse. I mean, if you want to really put this in perspective, America has not had a traitor so traitorous to our country since Benedict Arnold. And I mean Jack Smith.

And on Twitter, they're all like, “Ali better be careful.” All these left-wing Twitter accounts, “Ali better be careful or Jack Smith's going to indict him.” Indict me. I don't care. I do not care, you know? And so I just — but like, you know, I don't know what offends me more. I don't know if I'm more sad that law and order is dead, or that it's obvious law and order's dead, or that the people are too stupid to know that law and order is dead. I really think it's the last one.

Candace Owens #wingnut #sexist #transphobia mediamatters.org

We're -- I mean, we are in a matriarchy. And this is why they accuse me of being an internalized misogynist because I'm able to think through and acknowledge the flaws of what happens in society when women get power.

And if you wanna know what happens, look around you. Women fall for emotional arguments the entire time. They show us a commercial, you know, show -- it's so sad, and before they get to the rational aspects of it, they're already invested emotionally. And I think that virtually every societal ill that we are facing today is because of women.

And I think the greatest recent example of that is the Bud Light controversy, because, I mean, trans people were just playing dress up as women, invaded every women's space, and women said, oh, but I feel bad. Because it's how he identifies at the inside, without thinking through the fact that you're quite literally disappearing yourselves. Right? You're quite literally saying, I will cease existing before I let this grown man who's wearing a wig have a bad feeling. That's insane.

I will say this to Jordan Neely's family. I'm sorry you lost your son, but your son was a disgrace. Your son was threatening people. Your son had been in prison, repeatedly. Your son was on a bad track. Your son punched an old woman in the face. Meanwhile, this 24 year-old served his country as a United States marine. He's now going to be charged with second degree manslaughter, and God knows if it'll get worse. A good Samaritan -- a good Samaritan cannot be sure what's going to happen when he or she steps in to try and protect a subway car full of people. That chokehold that he had on Neely, to be honest with you, I've seen that chokehold when I watch MMA, particularly UFC. I've seen it. But the point is, if Neely hadn't been threatening, threatening other citizens on the subway car, none of this would have happened.

...

I'm sick of all these spoiled liberal white millennials who protest, who protest on behalf of tyranny. I'm sick of it. That's why I don't live among it. Not anymore. Every now and then, my wife or another family member says, let's go have dinner in Washington. I said, not me. I want nothing to do with Washington. There's a reason we live 40 miles away. I don't wanna go there. I don't wanna go into any of these cities. I just don't, because if somebody tries to hurt me or even more my wife or another family member, I'm not surrendering. And so, I know what'll happen -- something horrific, or if I manage to protect myself or family member, I'll lose everything. Because the system is not a just system -- system about equity, which means I can't win. Even if I'm the good guy, even if it's self defense. So I don't wanna live in a society like that. So I don't wanna be in those areas. I don't wanna be there.

From the July 19, 2023, edition of The Daily Wire's The Michael Knowles Show

MICHAEL KNOWLES (HOST): The difference here is Mussolini was a pretty bad guy. He's not -- he wasn't the worst guy in the world. He wasn't Hitler, certainly. He wasn't Stalin, he wasn't Lenin. But he -- Mussolini was, let's say, at least a mixed bag leaning on the side of bad. Not -- he was a bad political leader. Franco was, broadly speaking, pretty good. Given the circumstances that he was in; you've got the communists threatening to take over the entire country and they're killing priests and raping nuns, Franco was pretty good. Because Franco wasn't a fascist. Franco wasn't a Nazi. Franco was a conservative, Catholic, kind of guy who held things together and liberalized over time too, as the circumstances permitted it. I don't know. I mean, even to -- you're saying it's crazy to compare the current party to Franco, but even to compare Franco to the other bad men of the twentieth century, I think, is a great exaggeration

Michael Knowles #wingnut #sexist mediamatters.org

Women in combat is a national scandal. It is a disgrace. It is a deep, deep shame and stain on our country. And I don't even hear the conservative politicians talking about this. Women in combat is a very recent phenomenon, as the lady just said in that commercial. And yet, we just totally gave up that fight. Why? Because we don't wanna be seen as disrespecting women who serve in the military. I have the utmost respect for women who serve in the military. I'm deeply grateful for their inclination to serve and sacrifice. But the military is not about individual desires. It's not even about individual ability. It's about cohesion and unity and national policy and who we wanna be as a nation. I have no doubt that's -- that there are a significant number of women who would valiantly go out and risk their lives and bodily integrity to go fight for America. I don't want them to do that. I think it's bad for America to send women into harm's way.

I think part of the reason that we have an army is so that we don't have to do that. I think it's disordered. I think that women are more nurturing. They're the weaker sex. They're the gentler sex. And a major reason to have a military is to protect them because boys need their mommies, and husbands need their wives, and societies need a nurturing feminine element. And when we're talking -- especially when we're talking about fighting a lethal force, we need to not be sentimental and not be absurdly ideological. We need to send out the toughest, strongest, brawniest fellas. The -- the reason to keep women out of combat is as much for the men as for the women. It's as much for the civilians as for the fighting force. And you need to say it. Even -- even moderate Democrats said this 10 years ago, and now the conservative right-wing won't say it.

Dennis Prager #racist #dunning-kruger #fundie mediamatters.org

This is Media Matters quoting from Prager’s video
By the way, if you talk about Islamic slavery – which was considerably more barbaric – and, believe me, there was barbarity in our slavery. But most slaves could actually have children, for example. And on more than a few occasions, they were separated from their parents. Horrible, truly horrible. But the Black slave population increased tremendously because they could have families in so many cases. Under Islam, that was not possible, the men were castrated. And they weren't castrated with an anesthetic, shall we say. The agony is indescribable, and so many of them died just because of the barbarity of being castrated.


The left hates America because they have nothing going on in their lives that gives them meaning. The inferior always hates the superior. The left is morally inferior to the United States and its founders and the Judeo-Christian system. The inferior morally hate the morally superior. The left has always been morally inferior from Lenin to today.

Shawn Farash #wingnut #conspiracy #transphobia #psycho mediamatters.org

The left has been hijacked, the Pride movement has been hijacked, the LGB community has been hijacked by pedophiles. Say it loud, pedophiles.

How long until we are just ready to -- and I'm not saying violence, folks. Don't misinterpret what I'm saying. Please don't misinterpret what I'm saying. What I am simply suggesting is that this ideology needs to be eradicated. And you have judges who are backing this up. We got a lot of work to do. A lot of work to do. These people are not your friends. They don't just wanna be tolerated. They don't just wanna be accepted anymore.

The point of the matter is leave the children alone, you sick and twisted monsters. This half naked dude, twerking for kids in Seattle. You got naked men on bikes. You got New York City Pride marchers wearing all sorts of weird stuff talking about, we're coming for your children. Is that a threat? Because I guarantee you, the people whose kids you're coming for, they probably like the Second Amendment a lot. And if you come for their kids, they're probably going to exercise their Second Amendment rights. I'm not saying to do it unprovoked. I'm not saying I wanna see it happen. I'm saying to you people, you have been pushing the envelope, don't push it any further because if you show up on doorsteps coming for the children, something bad's gonna happen and it will be in the full acceptance of the law at that point. We're not coming for your kids. You're overreacting. You're a bigot. Take those remarks and shove them up your backside, shove them right up the rump. We know you love to put stuff up there anyway. I say that all the time. You are disgusting.

First of all, if you're wondering why we still don't have a cure for cancer it could be partly because this is the sort of thing the medical field is focusing its energies on now. Rather than figuring out better ways to treat and heal people who are physically sick, hundreds of millions of dollars are being invested into turning men into women and women into men.

Now you might point out that, well, the medical field can do both. Right? It can make Frankenstein monsters and it can try to cure cancer. Well, yeah. Theoretically it can work on curing and treating diseases while also devoting time to putting vaginas on men. That's true. The problem is that these two projects are fundamentally at odds. On the one hand, they're trying to make sick people better while on the other hand they're exploiting sick people, mentally sick people in this case, and mangling their bodies horrifically for profit.

Hank Kunneman #fundie #wingnut #conspiracy mediamatters.org

Yeah, well, first of all, it would be easy for people to say, well, hey, you know, this is the weather. It's summertime. Well, yeah, it is summer. But when God tells you ahead of time what it's going to specifically be and he lists out that it's going to be in the hundreds and it is in the hundreds, and those specific numbers that he listed coincide with certain redemptive promises in the book of Psalms.

And we need to pay attention because in many places they've never had these temperatures. They've made records with the very things that are there. But here's what God said. He said, with the temperatures, it's going to be a reflection of not only the temperatures rising upon the nation, which we're seeing with the sound of justice, the movie people are saying, hey, we are angry at what they're doing to the kids. But also watch this. God's anger is rising and it's coming with justice. Now, it isn't just weather and here's why. There is a connection between the prophetic and weather. And I'll just give a couple quick examples. First, Kings Chapter 17; Elijah said at my word, it won't rain. So there you have a connection. But also you have Ezekiel, in Ezekiel 37, he was commanded by God to prophesy, not about the winds, prophesy to the winds.

And so God is giving us a sign in the weather of what he is doing and here's what he's doing. The temperatures are rising in the natural because it's a sign of God's rising of his temperature against the injustice. And did you hear what he said? It'll be a sign that America is being saved. And so we need to rejoice and keep praying for the innocent who are being affected by these temperatures.

One wonders, did Nancy Pelosi want [January 6] to get out of hand? Is that the reason why her daughter was suddenly there filming her mother in this heroic role? Because all of this, you know, was somehow planned and conjured up? You know, I think it's worth asking the question but the committee wouldn't allow it.

Michael Knowles #wingnut #transphobia #fundie mediamatters.org

On the cultural front, a man like this should be ashamed to present himself in this way in public. We used to have standards and norms that discouraged perverted men like this from presenting themselves in these perverted ways, with the pink hair and the psycho affect openly talking about chopping up little kids. Men should be terrified to do that sort of thing. And if they have any of these absolutely perverted and sadistic desires, they should keep them to themselves and they should work on themselves and try to cast those demons out of their bodies. That's the cultural level of this, of course.

But then there is the even deeper level that I haven't heard a lot of people acknowledge, which is, this is yet another reminder that science is mostly fake. And not that scientism or the politicization of science or whatever other squishy language the more centrist, kind of, people want to grant. But the whole endeavor, the whole endeavor of the scientific revolution, the premise of which is that reality is fundamentally physical, that is flawed. It's not true. The modern scientific culture has given us certain nice things, but it's given us a lot of bad things as well, like transgenderism and transhumanism and skyrocketing rates of depression and anxiety and suicidality and a loss of the sense of meaning in this world and a neglect of the fundamental spiritual and metaphysical realities of this world. It's given us all those things. And it's also given us a ton of bogus scientific theory. Even taken on the plane of physical science alone, it's given us a bunch of bs. It's given us this notion that the world is gonna end in five minutes because of the sun monster and catastrophic climate change. That's -- that's a product of the scientific revolution. It's a product of a myopic, narrow, obviously mistaken world view where you plug in a bunch of models and, with all your genius people from Harvard and Yale and Princeton and Oxford, and they plug in their models and they say, oh, the world's gonna end in five minutes, and it's not true. And most people, even, who push these ideologies don't believe it.

Michael Knowles #wingnut #transphobia mediamatters.org

I made the point that if you want if women to have their own bathrooms, if you think women ought to be able to have their own locker rooms and not have to look at gigantic gross men while little girls are getting changed, if you want any of those things, you have to ban transgenderism entirely. It's not enough to say, well, you have to wait until you're 12 or whatever people are saying now. It has to be the whole thing because if men have the right to behave as women and identify as women for the purposes of public life, then women can't have their own spaces and we as a society cannot have our own standards and norms and we're not allowed to live according to reality. We have to live according to the delusions of these troubled people. And I think we, the people, have a right to reality. And I think women have a right to their own spaces. And so, that means you've got to ban the thing entirely.

And, oh, my goodness, what these people say. They said that I was calling for the extermination of transgender people. They said I was calling for a genocide against – I said, what? I must have missed that part of my show. When did I -– did I say that? I don't – one, I don't know how you could have a genocide of transgender people because genocide refers to genes, it refers to genetics, it refers to biology. And the whole point of transgenderism is that it has nothing to do with biology. That's what the transgender activists say. They say, forget about biological sex. My gender expression doesn't have to have anything to do with my biological sex. Okay, well, then there can't be a genocide. It refers to genetics.

But furthermore, nobody's calling to exterminate anybody because the other problem with that statement is that transgender people is not a real ontological category. It's not a legitimate category of being. There are people who think that they're the wrong sex, but they're mistaken. They're laboring under a delusion. And so we need to correct that delusion.

Greg Reese and Alex Jones #racist #conspiracy #dunning-kruger mediamatters.org

Infowars personality Greg Reese defended a Holocaust denier and questioned the death toll from the Holocaust in a segment promoted and aired by Alex Jones

During a November 1 episode of The Alex Jones Show, Jones aired a pre-taped segment where Reese defended neo-Nazi Ernst Zundel and his false claim that 6 million did not die in the Holocaust. Reese said, “The main argument was simply challenging the number 6 million. Many others have worked out the math and concluded that 6 million would’ve been impossible”[…]
Jones actively promoted the segment, insisting that the clip “needs to go viral.” He also played the piece in full and directed viewers to watch it on an Infowars-aligned streaming site

Reese continued to question the Holocaust's death toll claiming the Israeli government “who funds and operates Hamas ... is openly calling for genocide of all Palestinian people under the banner of their God. Are we still bad people for asking logical questions?” Reese then went on to suggest that the figure “6 million” was not the amount of Jews killed, but a reference to the Book of Zechariah

Welcome to Panama. When you see Joe Biden think, Noriega. These people are thugs running our government. This indictment by Jack Smith and the pretenders at the Justice Department and the FBI is a disgrace to the rule of law. What has happened tonight is an embarrassment to the republic and Jack Smith can shave his beard.

...

This is vengeance, unleashed retributive justice by a Democratic administration that is drunk -- drunk. They're on fentanyl with power. This is disgusting. It's an embarrassment to the history of constitutional government in this country, and everybody who believes and loves the Constitution should be sorrowful, embarrassed, disgraced by the conduct of Merrick Garland, Jack Smith and everybody involved in this process, including Christopher Wray.

...

Think Panama, think banana republic. You are looking at a thug. He is not the president of the United States. He is a thug and Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray are complicit in the thuggery that led to this indictment today. This indictment today is an embarrassment to the rule of law in the United States, and I hope that the American people understand clearly and unequivocally that what happened today is an assault on the Constitution of the United States.

The Biden administration, which is a terrorist administration tearing the country apart, ends its support for long-standing signed policies prohibiting individuals who are HIV positive from serving in combat zones. That was based on sound science. It was tied to the need for HIV medications, which are very costly, and the danger of cross-infection through shared blood in a foxhole. Thrown out the door. Gets worse. The Biden's chief of naval operations, so-called Admiral Michael Gilday – I don't know who the hell he is – decided to add a book how to be an antichrist, one of the leading source books on so-called critical race theory, which is an anti-white hate fest. And, in the book given to our naval men and women now, are reading saying capitalism is, essentially, racist and that to be truly anti-racist, you also have to be fully anti-capitalist.

One more piece of information for those of you out there who want to know why I say Rome did not pass away, it was assassinated, and we are committing suicide because of the LGBTQ and other far-left maniacs. They're looking at readings that are required at West Point right now. There are now slides labeled white power at West Point, Carl. Can you believe this? Now, if this goes on, I predicted 20 years ago in a not-so-joking way, like a Jonathan Swift, that if we don't stop these psychopathic haters, they will snap the crosses off the graves of our war memorials. How far away are we from someone saying all those crosses make me uncomfortable, and I want them snapped off the graves of dead soldiers. Who's gonna stop them, Carl?

I'll stop them. Know this, Carl. I've had enough. I've had enough. I'm an old man. But I'll tell you something, I'm willing to pick up arms. I can't take it anymore. I can't take this anymore.

Tim Pool #wingnut #conspiracy #racist mediamatters.org

So, I mean the first thing I just want to say before we get into any of the politics from either side is, we don't want [mass shootings] to happen, we want these things to stop. We need to figure out what the issue is in our society, in our culture. I genuinely believe it's dissociation. It is a dejected society where individuals don't know or care about each other and they seek validation or they seek to push some extremist ideology. And this whole thing creates a recipe for disaster.

And I'll put it simply, I think it's multiculturalism. And not the idea that people of all different types are holding hands under the rainbow, it's that you have different communities stacked on top of each other and next to each other with wildly different views and they don't like each other. And then people who are crazy will do crazy things.

But what ends up happening today, we have this story from the Daily Mail, “Revealed: Texas gunman staked out massacre mall to monitor peak times three weeks before killing eight and posting details on Russian social media alongside photos of Nazis, guns, and ammunition.” You see, here’s where we get into the PSYOP.

Candace Owens #transphobia #wingnut mediamatters.org

Submitter’s note: This is originally from the Daily Wire. Media Matters does not support Candace Owens, they just archive her assholery.

The Daily Wire's Candace Owens: “I actually think that society would be safer we discriminated more”

CANDACE OWENS (HOST): I definitely discriminate against men that paint their nails and wear dresses. I don't really care how you feel about that. You can wear your dress and you can paint your nails, but I'd prefer you keeping a hundred feet away from a playground and all of the feet away from my children and me. If I see you, I'm going to cross the street, if I'm with my kids.

...

So, all of this to say is, obviously discrimination is built into us for a reason. It's a survival mechanism, right? We want to survive. And so, when we get that feeling – my mother used to refer to it as the heebie-jeebies, when someone just gives you the heebie-jeebies – even if you can't quite put your finger on why – I think you need to lean into that.

And, I actually think that society would be safer if we discriminated more. What's happening now is insanity because they're telling us to accept everything.
