Kenneth Copeland: Hatred Toward Trump ‘Opened the Door’ for the Coronavirus Outbreak

During services at his Eagle Mountain International Church on Sunday, prosperity gospel preacher and Trump evangelical adviser Kenneth Copeland declared that hatred toward President Donald Trump had opened this nation to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak but that the outbreak will soon be over because Christians’ prayers “have overwhelmed it.”

Copeland, who last week hosted a “Standing Against Coronavirus” special during which he healed viewers of the disease through their television screens, claimed that he was lying in bed last Friday night when he suddenly received word from the Lord, which he hurriedly wrote down.

“This disease called COVID-19 will be over much sooner than you think,” God reportedly told Copeland. “Christian people all over this country praying have overwhelmed it. Give Me all the glory, saith the spirit of grace. And many, many people will come to know Me through it. I am still Lord over this nation and I am on the throne and faith in Me changes things!”

“There’s been some really nasty things that have happened this year—last year and this year—that I’m quite certain—well, I know—opened the door to a lot of this,” Copeland continued. “Displays of hate and hatred by politicians toward the president. And hate on both sides. The Democrats hate him, and we have some people that hate them because they hate him.”

“This fussing and this fighting going on in this government just opened the doors wide to this country just to bring this trash in here and just slam us with it,” he added. “When we get to hating people in this nation openly and publicly in political office and it breaks down the divine protection over this nation, we get hit.”

“Well, we just got hit,” Copeland concluded.

Bonus message from the same interview:

Multi-millionaire televangelist Kenneth Copeland tells viewers that even if they lose their jobs because of the coronavirus outbreak, they must continue giving to the church: "Whatever you do right now, don't you stop tithing!”

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on YouTube last night in which she declared that the current coronavirus outbreak is really just a cover for the Trump administration to carry out the mass arrests long promised by conspiracy theorists.

Like her friend and fellow conspiracy theorist Mark Taylor, who suggested the same thing earlier this week, Crokin is an ardent believer in the QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that President Donald Trump has been working diligently to arrest countless prominent political, media, and business leaders for allegedly being part of a global satanic pedophile ring.

In early 2019, Crokin publicly declared that if the mass arrests long promised by “Q” did not happen by the end of the year, she would “bow out” of the movement and “move on” with her life. The arrests never happened, but Crokin refused to give up, and she is now claiming that the coronavirus outbreak may really be cover for them to finally occur.

“I do believe that when these mass arrests happen that we will be in martial law for our own safety,” Crokin said. “I believe that the coronavirus, which the president of the United States and many doctors have said is no more serious than the flu, is the cover to put the country into lockdown—just like Italy is in lockdown—to possibly declare martial law, get people off the streets, keep them in their homes, so they’re safe so when the military and the National Guard sweeps in and conducts these mass arrests, it is done in a manner where people are kept safe.”

“Since 2017, Q has been talking about these mass arrests, and Q has also been talking about how when these mass arrests happen, there will probably be many days of darkness, social media might go down, the National Guard is going to come in, and the military will be used to arrest these people,” she added. “That is what I believe is happening right now.”

Josh Bernstein #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Radical right-wing broadcaster Josh Bernstein posted a video on Saturday in which he declared that Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders is a “self-hating” Jew who “would have marched the other Jews right into the gas chambers.”

Even though Sanders lost family in the Holocaust, whereas Bernstein cannot even accurately recount the story of Hanukkah, Bernstein insisted that he is a “true Jew” and Sanders is nothing more than a “self-loathing, self-hating anti-Semite.”

“Bernie is the type of quote-unquote Jew, in my opinion, who would have marched the other Jews right into the gas chambers,” he said. “I don’t believe that Bernie Sanders is a true Jew.”


Bernstein’s comments came just days after a far-right activist unfurled a Nazi flag at a Sanders campaign event in Vermont. In February, Bernstein claimed that he had received White House press credentials to cover a Trump rally in Arizona.

Dave Daubenmire #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Radical right-wing activist Dave Daubenmire spent most of his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast yesterday threatening to sue the National Football League for broadcasting unsolicited “crotch shots” into his home during the Super Bowl halftime show, thereby jeopardizing his eternal salvation.

“I think we ought to sue,” he said. “Would that halftime show, would that have been rated PG? Were there any warnings that your 12-year-old son—whose hormones are just starting to operate—was there any warning that what he was going to see might cause him to get sexually excited?”

“I think we ought to go sit down in a courtroom and present this as evidence of how whoever [put on the halftime show] is keeping me from getting into the kingdom of Heaven,” Daubenmire added. “Could I go into a courtroom and say, ‘Viewing what you put on that screen put me in danger of hellfire’? Could the court say, ‘That doesn’t apply here because the right to [produce] porn overrides your right to [not] watch it’? Yeah, well, you didn’t tell me I was gonna watch it! You just brought it into my living room. You didn’t tell me there were gonna be crotch shots!”

Daubenmire declared that the halftime performance was a blatant example of anti-Christian discrimination because he should be able to watch the Super Bowl without having to see things that conflict with his values.

“That’s discriminatory against the value I have in my house. You can’t just do that,” he argued. “I wanna sue them for about $867 trillion.”

Daubenmire appears to be quite serious, as he posted a follow-up video on Facebook saying that he is looking for a lawyer who will file a class action lawsuit against Pepsi, the NFL, and his local cable company on his behalf.

Ann Vandersteel #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

During last Thursday’s episode of her “Steel Truth” program, right-wing QAnon conspiracy theorist Ann Vandersteel speculated that the ongoing coronavirus outbreak may have been orchestrated by the “deep state” and/or the British government in order to destabilize global markets, weaken the American economy, and prevent President Donald Trump from being reelected.

Vandersteel, who was unceremoniously disavowed by the Trump campaign last year after she repeatedly claimed to be a member of Trump’s 2020 campaign advisory board, said the virus seems to be especially deadly to “Asian males,” which led her to speculate that it may have been intentionally released in China to disrupt Trump’s trade agreement with that country, thereby undermining the U.S. economy.

“Is this perhaps a ploy to try to take down President Trump’s roaring economy that we have by sabotaging the markets, by creating fear porn and fear-mongering while they’re also killing Chinese people by the thousands?” she wondered. “Is that a strategy that the deep state would actually use?”

“Perhaps maybe the Crown, the Brits, who are not too fond of the Chinese, may have some sort of ulterior motive?” Vandersteel added. “These people don’t want President Trump to win. They don’t want him reelected. If you have him reelected, you know the deep state is going down … so I look at this as an opportunity to shake the core of what President Trump hangs his hat on, which is the economy. You rattle our stock market, and we have a dip and people go, ‘Oh, it was basically nothing but propped up stuff. This isn’t real, and we need to look to Bernie Sanders to bail us out.'”

Mark Taylor #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

So-called “firefighter prophet” and radical right-wing conspiracy theorist Mark Taylor appeared on “The MC Files” last night, where he suggested that the coronavirus outbreak is really just a cover for the Trump administration to finally make the mass arrests long promised by conspiracy theorists.

Taylor, about whom Liberty University made a movie in 2018, is an ardent believer in the QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that President Donald Trump has been working diligently to arrest countless prominent political, media, and business leaders for allegedly being part of a global satanic pedophile ring. For years, Taylor has been predicting that mass arrests were imminent, but they have never materialized.

Now Taylor suspects that the current coronavirus outbreak is possibly a cover to get leading Republicans—like Reps. Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, Doug Collins, and Sen. Ted Cruz, who are all under self-quarantine after coming into contact with a coronavirus-infected attendee at the recent CPAC conference—out of Washington, D.C., so the Trump administration can carry out the mass arrests.

“They’re using the coronavirus as a cover to go in, shut places down, and go in and start making arrests,” Taylor said. “Are they pulling these guys out, like Matt Gaetz, are they getting them out of D.C. for a reason?”

“They’re pulling these guys out of D.C., the good guys, before they lock D.C. down, possibly, and go in and really start arresting people,” Taylor speculated. “Or could they be sending these guys home, and then they lock D.C. down in a way so that it’s secure, and then they go get these guys at their houses? I don’t know.”

“The corona thing I believe is a front, it’s a cover as an excuse to be able to lock stuff down, and go in and get some of these people out of here,” he added. “This to me is a good thing.”

Chris McDonald #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing broadcaster Chris McDonald dedicated the first hour and a half of his “The MC Files” program last night to asserting that the recent death of former professional basketball player Kobe Bryant was an occult “ritual sacrifice” that may possibly have been orchestrated by Hillary Clinton, who everyone knows is a witch.

McDonald, an unmitigated conspiracy theorist who was recently welcomed to Capitol Hill by Republican Rep. Phil Roe of Tennessee, interviewed self-proclaimed “political occultist expert” Cory Daniel about Bryant’s death.

After Daniel asserted that Bryant was undoubtedly a witch and McDonald declared that his death was obviously a “ritual sacrifice,” McDonald asked the question that was on everybody’s mind: Could Hillary Clinton have orchestrated Bryant’s death through witchcraft?

“This is the only wild conspiracy theory I am going to ever toss out there on this program,” McDonald laughably asserted. “I normally don’t do this, but this is just a food for thought question.”

“We all know that it is pretty much a given that Mrs. HRC … is a witch,” McDonald continued. “Can a witch cast a spell on something like this to cause death and not be [known]? I’m just throwing that out. I don’t know anything about this stuff, you do. Is that possible if she wanted to get rid of Kobe? Please, Right Wing Watch, don’t be putting in that me and Cory are saying this; this is just a food for thought question. Do you think Hillary would be able to do it if she wanted to do it?”

Mark Taylor #fundie #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

So-called “firefighter prophet” and radical right-wing conspiracy theorist Mark Taylor appeared on the “Up Front In The Prophetic” program on Friday, where he declared an urgent need for President Donald Trump to arrest one high-profile Democrat or member of the “deep state” in order to prevent right-wing militias from engaging in violent civil unrest.

Taylor, an ardent follower of the QAnon conspiracy theory, has been predicting for years that Trump will unleash a wave of arrests and put on trial thousands of high-level cannibalistic satanic pedophiles, allegedly including even Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Lately, Taylor has begun to warn that right-wing activists are growing restless and will begin to take matters into their own hands if such arrests don’t happen soon.

Taylor said that he knows that God has a plan in place for carrying all of this out, but that Trump needs to send a signal to gun activists and militia members that progress is happening.

“If they wait too long, this is what is going to end up happening if we’re not careful is that you will see some civil unrest,” Taylor said, “because patriots are tired of it. They’re not going to put up with it any more.”

“I’m around the gun community,” he added. “I hear the talk. This talk is beginning to escalate, like the militia-type stuff. They’re getting ready to take up arms and to take things into their own hands if they don’t see something happen. So this is why I’ve been saying they have got to make at least one high-profile arrest. Perp walk the son of a gun, whoever it is. I don’t care who it is, perp walk ’em in handcuffs on national television to set the stage and to let people know, ‘Yes, we are very serious about justice.'”

Dave Daubenmire #racist rightwingwatch.org

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married in 2018, right-wing activist Dave Daubenmire decried the union as a “psy op” that was intended to promote “the blending of the races,” which is something that Daubenmire vehemently opposes because he believes that interracial marriage has weakened America.

“Today, interracial marriage would be considered honorable, when 40 years ago it would have been considered a disgrace,” Daubenmire argued in 2017. “Now is it a disgrace or is it honorable? Has the mixing of culture been good for America or has it been bad? Is America stronger today than we were 40 years ago or are we weaker today? And could it be are we weaker today because multiculturalism is spiritual AIDS and has brought an infection into what was once a great Christian American culture?”

On his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast yesterday, Daubenmire reacted to the news that Harry and Meghan were stepping back from their positions as members of the royal family by blaming Markle for having “infiltrated” and “poisoned” the royal bloodline.

“How is the royal bloodline of the crown being poisoned?” Daubenmire asked. “Is there something special about this commoner who has married into the royalty?”

“She’s half black,” Daubenmire answered. “When [Harry and Meghan] step back, what is going to be at the heart of why she did it? What are they going to say? Come on. Wake up here. What are they going to say? … Racism! She never felt comfortable. She felt like she was below everybody else.”

“The royal family is the seat of Christianity,” he continued. “We cannot deny the impact the royal family has had on the WASP-y culture; the White Anglo Saxon Protestant culture is a result of what has happened within the crown. And the crown has now, for the first time, been infiltrated with a bloodline … oh my goodness, that sounds racist, doesn’t it?”

“Don’s miss what’s going on,” Daubenmire said. “This infiltrator comes in, proud of her infiltration, proud of her multiculturalism. And what is that demon doing? Destroying and upsetting everything, every tradition in that royal family.”

Tyler Lloyd #fundie #wingnut #psycho rightwingwatch.org

(as told by Kristen Doerer)

I passed by Lloyd and his “I have a dream of a Boogaloo [civil war]” sign, perhaps an attempt to be clever on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which fell on the same day as the gun rally.

“I went to Charlottesville, and I was really hoping there would be, like, more clashing between counterprotesters, but it looks like conservatives outnumbered everyone today,” Lloyd told me.

“Yeah, I really wanted a shooting. So this is really disappointing that everyone is so peaceful and organized, and I mean nothing bad happened. I guess there’s plenty of people walking with guns outside the capitol, but I don’t know, I thought there was more statements saying we were going to go storm the capitol,” he said. “This might as well been Storm Area 51 for me. This is stupid. I don’t know what all of these people wasted all their time for.”

When asked about his sign, Lloyd said he had heard of the term two weeks ago. “But it was kind of like what will it actually do to start a, you know, civil war in America? And everyone is already so divided. It’d be nice for people to finally be able to solve those problems with violence,” he said.

Brenden Dilley #psycho #wingnut rightwingwatch.org

On yesterday’s livestream of “The Dilley Show,” MAGA “life coach” Brenden Dilley told his audience that they had “better start developing a stomach for death” because President Donald Trump will soon start executing his political enemies en masse in order to save the nation.

Dilley, a fundamentally amoral right-wing broadcaster who openly brags about creating and spreading lies against his political opponents, reiterated his recent assertion that the only way to save America is for Trump to essentially wipe out those who oppose him.

“You better start developing a stomach for death, because you’re about to see a whole shit ton of it publicly,” Dilley said. “You can’t escape it. The crimes that have been committed against the United States of America are punishable by death, and I fucking firmly believe that should this Justice Department do their job to the fullest extent of the law, you will have to deal with and cope with more and more people being put to death as a result of their crimes.”

“Develop a stomach for it,” he added. “Develop a will for it. You want to save your fucking country? This is what it’s going to take. It’s going to take you having the stomach and the spine and the fucking testicular fortitude to support the president of the United States and the Department of Justice firmly imposing the law of the land.”

Dilley pointed to a poll showing that 7 out of 10 younger voters would be willing to support a socialist candidate as proof that such harsh measures are necessary.

“You prosecute people spreading communist propaganda. That’s the only way,” he said. “You’re going to lose your fucking country. It might not be this week, it might be in 10 years, if you don’t push back. If the restoration of law and order doesn’t happen, you got a real problem.”

Kevin Swanson Suggests That Greta Thunberg Is Demonically Possessed and ‘Needs Jesus’

Radical right-wing pastor Kevin Swanson declared on his radio program yesterday that Time magazine’s decision to name climate change activist Greta Thunberg as 2019’s Person of the Year is a sign of “the unraveling of the Western world.”

Swanson, who normally uses his radio program to declare that the proper biblical punishment for homosexuality is death, seized on the fact that Thunberg has Asperger’s syndrome, and suggested that she is demonically possessed and in need of Jesus.

“She’s psychologically disturbed,” Swanson said, likening her to the young boy in Mark 9 who was healed by Jesus after being possessed by a demonic spirit.

“I have to say there is something very disturbing about the appearance of and the presentation of this Greta Thunberg,” Swanson commented. “The other demonic spirits are using her to lead the world wherever it’s going.”

“Friends, if this isn’t a quintessential demonstration of the death of the West, or what an entire empire, what multiple empires, look like at the verge of collapsing, this is it,” he added. “It’s ridiculous. On the one hand, we want to be compassionate with Greta. I truly believe that Greta needs Jesus and short of her coming to Christ, I don’t know what is going to happen to this young lady. It is sad to see her in the condition that she is in.”

Brenden Dilley #psycho #wingnut rightwingwatch.org

On Monday’s livestream of “The Dilley Show,” MAGA “life coach” Brenden Dilley declared that he will not be satisfied with President Trump merely winning re-election in 2020 because he believes that Trump must completely destroy his political enemies and have them executed.

Dilley, a fundamentally amoral right-wing broadcaster who openly brags about creating and spreading fake news against his political opponents, insisted today that simple political victory will not be enough to satisfy his blood lust.

“I want to win and I won’t consider it total victory without destroying our enemies,” Dilley said. “I don’t want to hold your hand. I want to stomp you into the fucking ground. I want Donald Trump to bury you treasonous pricks under the prison. I don’t want to just win. Winning is a formality at this point. Destroying you motherfuckers is way more important.”

“I won’t consider it a total victory without destroying you, entirely,” he added. “Your entire fucking life. Everything you’ve built, I want to ruin it. I won’t be done, and this won’t be a job well done, and none of us will be satisfied until all of you pricks are gone. Not just gone; gone like totally gone.”

“There is no room for mercy,” Dilley continued. “We don’t have any time for weakness. I don’t want anybody on this team that wants to lift their foot off the throat of the Democrats right now. None of them. It won’t be enough. I want to win in November of next year and I want to keep curb-stomping these motherfuckers well beyond that.”

“You’ve got to destroy your enemy,” he said. “You have to make sure that your enemy can never play the game again and the only way you do that is with total annihilation … You have to lock up these treasonous motherfuckers and they all have to go to jail.”

Pointing to a photo of a noose, Dilley declared that “there is one solution and one solution only to save America and I think you know what it is. It’s a zero-sum game and if you don’t have the stomach for it, I don’t know what to tell you.”

Liz Crokin #wingnut #conspiracy #dunning-kruger #pratt rightwingwatch.org

Last year, right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin publicly declared that if the mass arrests long promised by those promoting the QAnon conspiracy theory didn’t materialize by the end of 2019, she was going to “bow out” of the movement.

“I’m sick of talking about it,” Crokin said last January. “It’s so depressing and I’m just over it. I’m going to have to move on because it’s just taken such a big toll on me and my health that I don’t think I can stay in this fight if it continues to drag on for years and years and if these mass arrests don’t happen this year.”

Those arrests did not happen, but it doesn’t appear as if Crokin is actually going to abandon the QAnon movement anytime soon, as she posted a video on New Year’s Eve in which she predicted that actor Tom Hanks will soon be among the first of the high-profile figures arrested for his supposed involvement in satanic pedophilia.

“There is a lot of evidence and symbolism with Tom Hanks,” Crokin said. “You can go look at some of the work he’s done, you can look at some of the skits he’s done on Saturday Night Live, you can look at some of the movies he’s been in. There is a lot of symbolism in the work that he’s done. I think one of the first movies he did was [The Man With One Red Shoe] … It was a movie about red shoes; we know that red shoes are significant and symbolic to the occult because they make leather red shoes out of babies’ skin.”

Crokin went on to predict that Hanks “would be the first big name unsealed indictment” because the person behind the Q account has frequently used the word “big” in its posts and Big is the name of one of Hanks’ most successful films.

“Tom Hanks was in a movie—Big—and, of course, the movie is based off of basically pedophilia because he’s a little kid in a grown man’s body that ends up having a sexual relationship with a grown woman,” Crokin said. “So a lot of anons are theorizing that he could be the first big name unsealed indictment. I think it’s a really good theory.”

Rick Wiles #racist #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

When right-wing conspiracy theorist and End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles and the team from his TruNews network were granted press credentials by the White House to cover President Donald Trump’s trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last week, it understandably generated news because Wiles and his network are virulently anti-Semitic.

On last night’s episode of his “TruNews” program, Wiles lashed out over the criticism that he and his network received, and predictably did so by blaming “the Jewish-controlled news media” for trying to shut him down.

“I have three constitutional rights at play here,” Wiles said. “We’re a news organization right here, this is freedom of the press. I have freedom of speech, I have a right as an American to express my views. And freedom of religion, I can express my religious beliefs also.”

Wiles said that the “news Nazis” are not only violating his rights, but are actively working to crush him and his network.

“They’re crushing all alternative voices in this country,” he said. “The Zionists are saying, ‘We will control what can be said, what you can think, everything.'”

“Wake up and realize what is happening to your country,” Wiles warned. “There is very little time left to stop the complete takeover. This is a takeover of the United States. You are being brought into slavery, you are being brought into captivity. It’ll be 100 years before you can break out of this. Look what happened to the Russians. They went 70 years when the Jews took over Russia in 1917 … so it’s happening to America right now.”

Wiles’ co-host, Edward Szall, added that when the Jews took over Russia, the royal family “was killed in a blood sacrifice.”

Mark Taylor and Chris McDonald #conspiracy #homophobia rightwingwatch.org

During an interview on his “The MC Files” program with so-called “firefighter prophet” Mark Taylor last week, host and right-wing commentator Chris McDonald declared that the new film about Mr. Rogers starring Tom Hanks “is a pedophile signal.”

McDonald, who frequently hosts Republican Rep. Phil Roe of Tennessee on his program, claimed that Hanks has been “named in many, many pedophile-related tweets, pedophile-related call-outs,” and asserted that the new Mr. Rogers film is really a pedophile “code.”

“This is insanity to me,” McDonald said. “He’s going to be in the role of Mr. Rogers in this new movie that is coming out and I don’t think that’s by mistake. Again, I think that’s just code, it’s signaling, it’s a pedophile signal.”

McDonald said that while he has never heard anything negative about Fred Rogers, it was obvious that Rogers “wasn’t the most masculine guy out there” and that “he dealt with children,” so “it makes you wonder” about the real purpose of the movie.

“I just think this thing with Tom Hanks, again, you put a mainstream actor in this role and, again, it just is almost like it’s blatantly in our face and saying, ‘Guess what? We’re going to recruit more of the pedophilia by putting this man up as Mr. Rogers, who deals with children,'” McDonald concluded.

Tom Horn #fundie #conspiracy #crackpot rightwingwatch.org

End Times author and SkyWatch TV CEO Tom Horn appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” today, where he asserted that President Donald Trump authorized the creation of a “U.S. Space Force” because he knows that the asteroid prophesied in the Book of Revelation is headed toward Earth.

Horn was on Bakker’s show today to promote his latest book, “The Wormwood Prophecy,” which claims that the government is covering up the fact that an asteroid known as Apophis will strike the Earth in 2029. While scientists say that Apophis will simply pass by our planet in 2029, Horn insists that it will strike the Earth and fulfill the prophecy in Revelation 8: “The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.”

Horn claims that he discovered this information when he was shown a vision of what he thought was “a dual-horned, fiery dragon deep in space” that he described as “the most terrifying thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”

When he awoke from this vision, Horn said, “something whispered in my ear, ‘Apophis.'”

“Apophis, I am convinced, is going to impact the earth in nine years from now,” Horn warned. “And when it does, I think it’s the fulfillment of the Wormwood prophecy.”

“Don’t forget, Donald Trump has prophecy-believers in his ear,” Horn added, “and that’s the reason why he was pushing for the new space command, all the additional money for earth defense forces. This is all quietly going on behind the scene.”

Dave Daubenmire #racist #fundie #god-complex rightwingwatch.org

Radical religious right activist Dave Daubenmire dedicated his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning to ranting about the “atheistic Jews” who he says are leading the effort to impeach President Donald Trump and are, he insisted, responsible for much of what is wrong in America today.

Daubenmire, who is blatantly anti-Semitic, cited a recent commentary by right-wing radio host Michael Savage in which Savage said that Trump, like Jesus, is being persecuted by Jewish leaders. Daubenmire wholeheartedly agreed with Savage and proceeded to unleash a rant against Christians who travel to Israel, who he claims “are desiring to become Jewish.”

“I’m more precious in the eyes of my savior than any bloodline Jew that was ever born,” Daubenmire declared. “If we could focus on who we are as children of the king, much of this stuff that we see going on around us would end, if we realized who we are, who we represent, whose voice we are.”

Daubenmire said that he was sick of turning on Christian radio and always hearing “about Israel and the Jews.”

“The Jews should be begging to become Christians,” he said. “The Jews should be begging to be like us, and we can’t wait for us to be like them. We want to go be God’s chosen people. Dude, you already are! There’s nothing special about a Jew.”

“They’re supposed to be jealous of us,” Daubenmire screamed. “Everywhere I look it’s Jew worship. You say, ‘Oh Coach, are you anti-Semitic?’ You’re an idiot! You’re an idiot if you think that. I am Semitic, you are too. It’s lies! All lies! And the church gobbles it up and gobbles it up because we don’t know who we are. I’m a child of the king. I’m a prince.”

Mark Taylor #conspiracy #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Mark Taylor, a radical right-wing conspiracy theorist and so-called “firefighter prophet,” appeared on the “Up Front In The Prophetic” program yesterday, where he urged people to begin carrying concealed weapons to protect themselves from human traffickers who might attempt to snatch them off the streets in order to sacrifice them to the demon god Baal.

Taylor said that “Baal is a very violent entity and it feeds off the blood of the innocent” and that “Baal’s food source is running dry” due to increased restrictions on access to abortion across the country, which is leading satanic forces—possibly including even the Red Cross—to kidnap people off the streets.

“We all know the Red Cross is corrupt,” he said. “They’re into all of this.”

“What the Lord has been showing me is that their food source is drying up and they are literally grabbing people … in broad daylight,” Taylor added. “Why? Because their food source is drying up.”

“We are entering into one of the most dangerous phases of this fight,” he continued. “I tell people, ‘I don’t care if you are a Christian or not, if you don’t have a concealed weapons permit, you need to get one. You need to learn how to use a weapon and you need to be carrying it right now because this is a very dangerous time that we are going to be entering into.'”

Taylor then claimed that God told him that blood banks in America will soon collectively launch a massive blood drive for seemingly no reason “because they need the blood because their sources are running out, so they can use that human blood for sacrifices, they can use it for drinking it, or whatever it is they do.”

Bryan Fischer #fundie #homophobia rightwingwatch.org

Last week, the Hallmark Channel announced that it was pulling ads for the wedding planning website Zola.com after the religious right organization One Million Moms complained about the ads showing two brides kissing. After an outcry about that decision, Hallmark reversed course and apologized.

One Million Moms is a project of the American Family Association, and yesterday, the AFA’s Bryan Fischer used his “Focal Point” radio program to blast Hallmark for supposedly caving to “the gay gestapo.”

Fischer bragged that One Million Moms had been able to pressure Hallmark into pulling the ads and force the CEO of Crown Media, which owns Hallmark, to personally call AFA president Tim Wildmon to apologize.

“And then the gay gestapo, the bullies of the homosexual movement—and remember, their theme is ‘homosexuality uber alles,’ homosexual trumps everything—so they got a hold of Hallmark, they started getting in, getting after it, getting on Hallmark and they folded in about 48 hours. They completely collapsed,” Fischer griped. “They completely reversed. Now they are apologizing all over themselves for supporting normative sexuality.”

“The devil has found a new way to keep people from bearing young in the image of God,” Robertson said. “To think that these people will then be neutered, they will not be able to be married, to have successful families, they won’t have children to look after them in their old age. I mean, they are throwing away their whole future on this nonsense that comes about in this politically correct environment.”

We have no idea where Robertson is getting the absurd notion that transgender people cannot get married, have children, and build “successful families.”

“We cannot allow this to happen in our country, ladies and gentlemen,” he added. “It is an attack of the enemy against human beings. God says, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and subdue the earth and possess it.’ Be fruitful and multiply. But the devil says, ‘Oh no, you are creating boys and girls, young babies in the image of God and we won’t permit that.’ So we are just a bunch of suckers buying into a lie.”

Scott Lively #fundie #psycho rightwingwatch.org

On today’s episode of the “Pass The Salt Live” webcast, host Dave Daubenmire interviewed Trump–loving radical right-wing activist Scott Lively, who used the opportunity to declare that abortion providers should be put to death.

“If I had my way, we would be executing abortionists after trial,” Lively said. “They are committing mass murder and if we truly had a just justice system, they would be tried and they would be executed for what they’re doing. That is how serious the problem is.”

Lively, who twice ran for governor in Massachusetts, added that he wanted to “make absolutely clear” that he was not calling for vigilante justice, but rather the creation of a justice system that operates according to the dictates of biblical law whereby the testimony of two witnesses is required in order to put someone to death.

Jesse Lee Peterson #racist rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing radio host Jesse Lee Peterson kicked off his radio program yesterday by railing against Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s proposal to provide a universal basic income to all American adults and declaring that Yang “should go back to China or wherever he came from.”

Yang was born in Schenectady, New York.

“There is this little Asian guy or Chinese guy or whatever he is, he should go back to China or wherever he came from,” Peterson said. “You allow these people to come into our country and they come in with their socialist, communist ideas.”

“Can we send this guy back to wherever he came from?” Peterson continued. “Let him go over there and give away free stuff. Why is he coming here to turn America into the place that he left?”

“What a sick person,” he added. “Beta male. They need to send him back to Taiwan or wherever he came from.”

Josh Bernstein #conspiracy #psycho rightwingwatch.org

Radical right–wing commentator Josh Bernstein appeared on Bill Deagle’s “NutriMedical Report” radio program earlier this week, where he said that the report released by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the origins of the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign in 2016 should result in Obama-era officials being publicly executed during halftime at the Super Bowl.

The report concluded that the launching of the investigation was justified and devoid of political bias, but it also noted that several significant errors were made during the process. For Bernstein, that was enough to demand blood.

“James Comey, Andrew McCabe, all of them, they’re all guilty,” Bernstein said. “They should be swinging from nooses at halftime at the next Super Bowl. That’s what they should be doing.”

Bernstein went on to declare that anyone who is even thinking of voting Democratic in the 2020 elections should put a bullet in their own head.

“You’ve got Fat Jerry, you’ve got Nancy Legosi, and you’ve got Adam Schiffless, all trying to say that this president committed treason,” he said. “That’s how insane this party is. They are so dangerous to the survival of our country that anyone who even has half a brain cell left in their head, if they vote for anyone but President Trump, you might as well put a gun to your head and put one bullet in it and keep flipping the thing and seeing what happens.”

Robert Jeffress #fundie #racist rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing evangelical pastor Robert Jeffress, who has a long history of attacking other religions, spoke at the White House’s Hanukkah celebration Wednesday, HuffPost reported. In 2011, Jeffress said that Mormons, Muslims, Jews, and gays are destined for Hell, as Right Wing Watch reported at the time.

During President Donald Trump’s speech, Trump spotted Jeffress in the crowd and chose the moment to praise the evangelical pastor.

“And, by the way, Robert Jeffress, I see you right here. And what a tremendous faith leader you are and a tremendous man you are,” Trump said. “Pastor, thank you for being here so much also. We appreciate it. We have so many people and so many great faith leaders here, and I want to thank you all for being here. It’s fantastic. This is a great, great day. We appreciate it very much, Robert. Thank you very much.”

Trump later invited Jeffress and attorney Alan Dershowitz, who Trump may add to his impeachment defense team and who has been accused of being involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking, up to the stage. Trump added that he liked the pastor because Jeffress praised him on talk shows.

“We’ve never had such evangelical Christian support. Jeff, come on up. Jeff. Come on up here, Jeff,” Trump said, waving him on stage. “But Robert Jeffress–I didn’t know him, but he–I watched him. And I’d watch him on different shows, and I’d say, ‘I like that guy. Man, he talks really great about me. And I like people that talk well about me.’”

Trump said he thought his administration had “made more progress toward faith leaders” and noted that it “got rid of the Johnson Amendment, which was a disaster.” The Johnson Amendment had prohibited churches from participating and intervening in political campaigns and had long been a target of conservative Christian groups.

“I think Donald Trump is the most pro-faith president in history when you look at what he has done for people of all faiths,” Jeffress said. “And, Mr. President, you know, Jewish and Christian believers alike believe what God said to Abraham in Genesis 12–that God would bless those who bless Israel, and He would curse those who curse Israel.”

“And I want to thank you, Mr. President, for being the kind of president who has the courage to stand up and be, when it comes to Israel, on the right side of history,” Jeffress continued. “But most importantly, you’re on the right side of God. And that’s why you are not going to fail, and we’re going to stand behind you 100 percent.”

Jeffress said in 2011, “Judaism, you can’t be saved being a Jew.” He recently mocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Catholic faith and claimed that Democrats worship the demon god “Moloch, who allowed for child sacrifice.” In August, Robert Jeffress asserted that Sen. Bernie Sanders is “completely illiterate when it comes to what the Old Testament teaches about Israel,” as are all Jews who vote for Democrats.

Perry Stone #fundie rightwingwatch.org

During the weekly “Firehouse Prayer” gathering held at his Omega Center International church in Tennessee last Thursday, right-wing pastor Perry Stone asked his congregation to pray against the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s actions towards Ukraine, and warned that if Democrats don’t back off, Christians may unify in prayer to ask God to strike them down.

For good measure, Stone also called out Right Wing Watch by name and predicted that we’ll have to apologize for being idiots when it happens.

Stone said there is “an unjust balance” in Washington because Hillary Clinton was allowed to “smash her BlackBerrys to keep the government from seeing what’s on them” and was not prosecuted for treason for keeping “four classified letters on a server,” while Trump, he contended, has been the victim of an unrelenting conspiracy to remove him from office that he alleged “was actually funded by George Soros.”

“The one thing that we have as Christians, as true believers, is the power of fasting and prayer,” Stone said, citing several biblical passages in which leaders “who attempted to delay and hinder the will of God” where “supernaturally removed by very strange diseases.”

“It is not about messing with a person, it is about messing with a sovereign plan,” he added. “When God has a sovereign plan, he himself will fight against people.”

“What the ungodly, unbiblical, Christ-haters in America do not understand,” Stone warned, “is that the true body of Christ that prays in the Holy Ghost, that has the power of God—and there are many of us, there are millions of us in America—if we so choose and decide to set out heart and our mind to fasting and prayer, we can move the hand of God to do anything that he would desire to do and give him the will—we have to choose, of course—to have his freedom, to say, ‘God, go do your thing right now.'”

“It may come to the body of Christ fasting and praying and asking God to clean house himself,” he continued. “This is going on the internet and I’m sure somebody will pick up what I’ve said. Right Wing Watch, I know you watch me, so go ahead and post what I just said and let’s see what happens. And then when it happens, you can apologize for being an idiot.”

Brenden Dilley #fundie rightwingwatch.org

On yesterday’s edition of “The Dilley Show,” MAGA “life coach” and amoral right-wing commentator Brenden Dilley griped that supporters of President Donald Trump have been mocked for supposedly being members of a cult that is built on the belief that the president is a brilliant genius who has been chosen by God and can do no wrong.

Despite the fact that Dilley himself regularly promotes these cultish beliefs about Trump, he took exception to a recent segment on CNN featuring an interview with Steven Hassan, who is the author of the new book, “The Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control.”

In an effort to push back against this claim, Dilley insisted that members of the media are really part of a cult, and he played a video featuring dozens of local news anchors reading literally the same script about the dangers of fake news to prove it.

“Perhaps you are doing what you guys always do, which is accusing those who stand against you of that which you are guilty of,” Dilley declared in reaction to the clip. “That is what a fucking cult looks like, my friends.”

Unfortunately for Dilley, all of the journalists in the clip he played worked for stations owned by the Sinclair Broadcasting Group, which is a conservative media organization that is staunchly pro-Trump.

In fact, the video that Dilley played was compiled by Deadspin last year as the centerpiece for its article, “How America’s Largest Local TV Owner Turned Its News Anchors Into Soldiers In Trump’s War On The Media.”

If Dilley was trying to prove that MAGA is not a cult, perhaps playing a video featuring dozens of journalists being forced to repeat the same script on orders from their Trump-loving owners was not the best way to do so.

EW Jackson #fundie #wingnut rightwingwatch.org

On Tuesday, Jackson’s nightmare came true as voters handed Democrats control of the state government, but Jackson insisted on his radio program Wednesday that he is not worried in the slightest about the results because he knows that “we are right and they are wrong and, ultimately, we will win.”

“I know if you’re listening to or watching the news, you’re thinking, ‘Bishop Jackson is going to be sad today because Virginia lost both the House and the Senate to a bunch of leftists,'” Jackson said. “You probably were looking for the sadness in my voice. Well, you know what, folks? I refuse to be sad, I refuse to be discouraged because I’m a child of God and I know that ultimately, we are right and they are wrong and, ultimately, we will win. If it takes Jesus coming back, we will win, so I am not the least bit worried.”

If Jackson is so unconcerned about Democrats taking control of the reins of government in Virginia, then why did he release a video frantically warning Christians that they must “treat Nov. 5 like D-Day” because the election was a matter of “life or death for your church”?

Rick Wiles #racist #conspiracy #fundie rightwingwatch.org

End Times broadcaster and rabid anti-Semite Rick Wiles called for social media platforms to be nationalized after his TruNews network’s Twitter account, which he used to rant about the “Jew coup” that is supposedly working to take down President Donald Trump through impeachment, was temporarily limited yesterday.

During last night’s broadcast, Wiles and co-host Doc Burkhart received word that the network’s “Jew coup” tweet had been removed for violating the platform’s guidelines against posting hateful content and that the account would be limited for 12 hours. This prompted Wiles to declare that his freedom of speech was being violated and to demand that the government nationalize all social media platforms.

“The censorship continues in America,” Wiles said. “What country are we living in? Where are we? Is this the Soviet Union? Is this communist Cuba? North Korea? Where are we? Your freedom of speech is being curtailed.”

“We need to nationalize the social media companies,” he declared. “Let’s take over the social media companies. Let’s nationalize them. Let’s turn them into utilities. Let everybody have free speech. If we don’t rise up and defend freedom, this country is moving quickly into a tyrannical state of censorship and suppression of ideas and beliefs. I’m not trying to stop anybody from speaking their views, but there are a lot of people trying to shut me down.”

Rick Wiles #racist #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles went on yet another anti-Semitic rant on his “TruNews” program last Wednesday, reiterating his assertion that Jeffrey Epstein, the hedge-fund multimillionaire who took his own life while awaiting trial for sexual assault and trafficking of minors, was actually a Mossad agent tasked by Israel with gathering blackmail material on powerful Americans “so the Jews can screw America.”

Wiles is deeply anti-Semitic and dedicates many of his TruNews programs to railing against Israel and the Jews—yet his network still regularly receives press credentials from the Trump administration. Just last week, Wiles’ YouTube account was temporarily suspended after he used his program to declare that the impeachment effort against President Donald Trump is a “Jew coup” designed to ultimately lay the groundwork for Jews to “kill millions of Christians.”

But that isn’t stopping Wiles from continuing to voice his anti-Semitic views.

“Our leaders are low-life scum that screw little girls so the Jews can screw America,” he said. “That’s what’s happening in this country. I just said it. That’s what’s going on in our country and our FBI is corrupt, the Supreme Court is corrupt, the Justice Department is corrupt, the news media is corrupt, the whole country is corrupt because we’ve walked away from Almighty God and we’ve allowed Kabbalah-practicing Jews to defile the nation.”

“Little American children [are] being raped for the benefit of Israel,” Wiles added. “American politicians [are] raping little American girls to be videotaped by Israeli Mossad so that Israel can blackmail American politicians. That’s the state of America today! God ought to destroy this country for what we’ve become.”

Brian Brown #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Anti-equality activist Brian Brown bragged on Tuesday about hanging out in Washington, D.C., with high-ranking Catholic Church official Gerhard Müller. Brown told his supporters that a highlight of their meetings was “the opportunity to spend time with Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh.”

Brown’s photo with the two justices is striking given that he is actively working to get the Supreme Court to overturn its 2015 Obergefell decision, which recognized that same-sex couples have the right to get married, as well as Roe v. Wade, which recognized a woman’s right to have an abortion.

Brown has made a career of fighting to make life more difficult and dangerous for LGBTQ people around the world by resisting and seeking to reverse advances in cultural acceptance and legal equality.

Earlier this year, Brown denounced presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s marriage as illegitimate and vowed to get marriage equality back before the Supreme Court so that its right-wing judges, fortified with Trump nominees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, can reverse the marriage equality ruling.

Appropriately for a Trump supporter, Brown doesn’t let honesty get in the way of a good scare tactic; a few months ago, he charged that the Equality Act then pending in Congress would “make showing support for marriage as solely the union of one man and one woman to be illegal.” That’s simply not true.

The Equality Act would add to existing federal civil rights law protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. If the bill were to become law and survive scrutiny by right-wing justices, Brown would still have every right to attack same-sex couples’ marriages and seek to strip their families of legal protections.

Roy Moore #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who is running for the U.S. Senate again, told reporters he wants to take the U.S. back to the “moral basis” of the 1960s and 1970s when sodomy and abortion were illegal, there was no national health care system, and nobody talked about socialism.

Moore was defeated in a 2017 special election after he faced charges, which he denied, that he sexually harassed and molested teenage girls in his 30s. Religious right leaders and right-wing media rallied around Moore during that campaign and denounced his critics and accusers. In 2017, Moore called his critics “unforgivable” and “pure evil.” After that defeat, he made it clear that he would continue to fight against people who “do not share the vision of those who built this country.”

Moore spoke recently to the Huntsville Republican Men’s Group, according to the Alabama Political Reporter:

“We have got to go back to what we did back in the sixties and seventies back to a moral basis,” Moore said. “We did not have a national healthcare system. You know when Obama passed this thing rising all our costs and business started going down the tube everybody said it was going to be repealed. You never hear anybody in Congress talk about it now. Our indebtedness was $22 trillion. Back in the sixties and seventies it was much lower. It was a sixth of that. Abortion was not legal when I went to Vietnam. It was passed later. It was OK’d later. We had abortion laws in our country and our state. We did not have same sex marriage. We did not have transgender rights. Sodomy was illegal. These things were just not around when my classmates and I went to West Point and Vietnam.”

Moore also complained about Supreme Court decisions on the separation of church and state that took official prayer out of the public schools. He complained that the country is “continually under attack from atheists and secular humanists who want to take those laws from us.”

Here is more of Moore’s nostalgia:

“We had the Pledge of Allegiance,” Moore continued. “We said the Pledge of Allegiance. We had morning devotionals. I know most of you in here over the age of sixty probably remember days like that. We are continually under attack from atheists and secular humanists who want to take those laws from us.”

“We have drag queens teaching kindergarten children in this state and this community….in Huntsville in Mobile they taught kids and they dress them up in drag,” Moore told the audience. “Where does this come from? Gender identity is being taught in California to young kids and parents have no choice but to let their kids be taught that.”

“The U.N. You don’t hear any talk about the U.N.,” Moore said. “In our backyard we have an organization in our backyard that intends to take away our rights. They hire kids to go out and protest our economic conditions. We have got to wake up. They don’t stand for us and we are maintaining them.

“When I went to school the Constitution was highly regarded,” Moore said. “Now we have kids who undermine our Constitution and impeach our President simply because they do not like his politics. That is not constitutional, and we should know that.”

For the record, it was Moore’s unorthodox view of the Constitution—notably his refusal as a state judge to abide by federal court rulings on church-state issues and marriage equality—that got him ousted twice as the state’s chief justice. Moore has been supported by Christian nationalists and embraced by some of the country’s most extreme anti-abortion activists.

One of the primary funders of Moore’s political career has been Michael Peroutka, a Christian Reconstructionist and neo-Confederate activist. Peroutka has also been a backer of Moore protégé and current Alabama Chief Justice Tom Parker, who has called on state courts to actively push the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling.

Bill Mitchell #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Ardent pro-Trump commentator and right-wing conspiracy theorist Bill Mitchell declared on Friday’s episode of his “YourVoice America” program that Joe Biden is a pedophile and the prospect of him winning the Democratic presidential nomination will force Michelle Obama to run for president in an effort to rescue the Democrats from sure destruction in 2020.

“Joe Biden is literally the antithesis of everything that liberals say they stand for,” Mitchell said. “He’s Mr. Gropy McGropster and we’ve all seen the videos of him … If he’s that into the whole pedophilia thing, what does he do when he’s in private if he does this in public? It’s frightening to imagine.”

Mitchell went on to assert that the fact that nobody is talking about the possibility of Michelle Obama running for president should be taken as evidence that such plans are being made.

“Who is going to step into the gap for them as the moderate savior?” he asked. “Who is always in the media, for months and months? Michelle Obama. Who has not been in the media for two months? Michelle Obama.”

“Is it possible that the Democrats are holding back Michelle Obama as the savior candidate?” Mitchell said. “Is it possible that she could be their ringer they’re waiting to put in? And the reason I think that is because if I were them, that is what I would do, and also, she has been completely silent. When was the last time Michelle Obama was silent? No news reports about her, no commentary from her, we’ve heard nothing from her on the whole Mueller thing, nothing, nothing, quiet, quiet, quiet. When the media gets really quiet about somebody, you’ve got to worry that they’ve got something going on.”

MAGA “life coach” and amoral right-wing commentator Brenden Dilley closed out today’s episode of his “The Dilley Show” by suggesting there was a conspiracy at work behind the news that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is now “cancer free” after undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer.

“How did you do it?” Dilley demanded. “We deserve to know. How did you do it, specifically? What was her diet? I want to know what pills she was taking every day. Did she do radiation? What was it?”

Dilley said that nobody in the media is willing to ask these question because they are afraid of what they might find out.

“The answer is going to be one of two things,” Dilley claimed. “One: There are cures to cancer that exist that they don’t allow those of us at the lower end of the food chain to receive. That is answer number one. Answer number two is the bitch died and they’ve cloned her numerous times and we don’t know who the fuck that is.”

“Those are the only two options,” he concluded. “If you’re going to try to sell me the idea that an 86-year-old woman who almost lost her life to cancer three other times just beat pancreatic fucking cancer in less than year, absolutely take a hike. I will never in a million years buy that bullshit excuse.”

Jesse Lee Peterson #sexist rightwingwatch.org

Earlier this week, Republican Rep. Sean Duffy announced that he was resigning from Congress because his wife, Fox News commentator Rachel Campos-Duffy, is pregnant with the couple’s ninth child and the child is facing health issues that will require open-heart surgery after she is born.

Right-wing radio host Jesse Lee Peterson reacted to this news on his radio show yesterday by repeatedly mocking Duffy as a “beta male” while declaring that Campos-Duffy is “selfish” for having a job instead of staying at home and raising her family.

“Why does she have to work?” Peterson asked. “Why doesn’t she stay home, be a wife, a mother, and help raise the children? And now this guy has to step down because this baby apparently has some issues … He shouldn’t quit his job for that. I guarantee you she is making him do it.”

“This woman is a selfish, egotistical woman and this man is too beta male to make her do the right thing,” Peterson continued. “This woman is a selfish woman. She has nine kids and she’s trying to be like a man, ‘I want to be seen by the world as such a working woman.’ Women, God has given you the gift of being the assistant of the man, to watch over his children, to make sure things are well at home, to be there when the kids come home, to cook, clean, provide in that way. There is no greater job for a woman than that. And I don’t know why these men would marry these women if they don’t have that mindset. It’s like being married to another man. It’s selfishness, it’s not love.”

“She has control over him,” Peterson added. “He’s a beta male. So Sean Duffy, Representative Duffy, you are a beta male! It’s ridiculous, really ridiculous, and it’s sad for the children. Nine children? You need to be home, and the man, you need to be out providing and being the light for your family … Men, you need to come back to your proper state of being so God can give you the right kind of woman to marry. I wouldn’t recommend you marry these educated women with these degrees; they don’t make for good wives and mothers.”

(Uncle Tom’s at it again. And holy shit! is he deep up massa’s ass.)

Right-wing commentator and pastor Jesse Lee Peterson joined a broadcast hosted by neo-Nazis yesterday and expressed his appreciation that the hosts were influencing young white men.

During a Nov. 6 stream on the website DLive, Peterson joined Robert Warren Ray, who is better known by his persona “Azzmador” on the neo-Nazi blog The Daily Stormer, and a person only identified as “Jimmy,” but whose voice sounds remarkably similar to Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin. During the appearance, Ray asked Peterson to elaborate on his frequent claims that black people in America lived better under Jim Crow laws–which enforced racial segregation in the American South, stripped African Americans of their rights, and enabled racial terrorism against African Americans–than they do today.

“Black people were not whining, complaining, and begging and blaming the white man. They were better off then than they are today because they had family and they treated everyone the way that they would like to be treated. And they knew that there were good and bad in all cultures,” Peterson told Ray.

Peterson insisted that Jim Crow laws would have been naturally reversed by a diverse group of “decent people” of different races, but that the civil rights movement “forced things to happen, and you can’t make anyone love you.” Peterson said the civil rights movement “should have never happened” and described it as a “big mistake.”

At the end of Peterson’s interview with the hosts, Peterson told them: “I’m really happy to know that there are other guys like you guys out there encouraging these young men to overcome anger and return to God, because their parents didn’t tell them that, and they’re not getting it in the schools. And especially with the young white males, I don’t want them to destroy themselves by being angry and doing the wrong thing because that’s a set-up from the children of the lie.”

“Children of the lie” is a term that Peterson often uses to describe people he believes are influenced by evil forces.

“I’m glad that the word is getting out that you can speak up, but don’t hate, because if you hate, you’re going to do something that you regret later, and we’re going to have a civil war, and they’re going to call you white supremacist and racist, and they’re going to make laws that destroy white men or anyone that stands up,” Peterson said.

Jimmy asked if Peterson believed there was not a political solution to the societal flaws they collectively perceived, to which Peterson agreed. After Peterson left the podcast, Jimmy praised Peterson for agreeing with him that “these young black men are a major problem” and suggested that the United States would need to have laws against “race-mixing.” Peterson, Jimmy said, “seems like the kind of guy we should be embracing if we’re looking for some kind of solution to the black problem.”

Peterson has long associated with extremists, both hosting them on his show and appearing on shows hosted by extremists. In January, he appeared on a white nationalist podcast and told the host that “unless white people take over, it’s over for America.”

Dave Daubenmire #racist #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

On his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast this morning, Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire showed off an old Bible that he recently purchased at an estate sale and used it to suggest that millions of Jews had not been killed in the Holocaust.

Daubenmire, who is blatantly anti-Semitic, highlighted a list contained in his copy of the “Pronouncing Edition of the Holy Bible“—which was published in 1900 and claimed that there were 7.5 million Jews in the world at the time—and used it to question how six million Jews could have been killed in the Holocaust just a few decades later.

“I’m not going to get into the depth about it because you are going to call me names,” Daubenmire said. “In 1900, there were 7,500,000 in the world. This ain’t forged. Folks, 7,500,000 Jews in the world. Can somebody explain to me how six million of them died in Germany? That is all I am going to say. I’ll let you figure the rest out.”

“Forty years later, six million of them died?” he added. “In Germany? They were all in Germany and died in Germany? Uh oh, I’m making some of you nervous.”


The figure of 6 million deaths of Jews in the Holocaust does not simply refer to the numbers of German Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis, nor of simply of those who died in Germany; it includes those who died in death camps located in Poland, Ukraine and other European countries. Furthermore, the Pew Research Center estimates the total population of European Jews in 1939, before the war began, at 9.5 million, based on historical research by Sergio DellaPergola of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

(putting in a #racist because…well fuck, the tag list doesn’t cover this flavour of fuckery.)

During a recent appearance on Bill Deagle’s radio show, radical right–wing commentator Josh Bernstein declared that liberal Jews deserve to be called “kikes.”

Bernstein, who is Jewish but sees the benefits of anti-Semitism when it benefits his political views, kicked things off by recounting the apocryphal origins of the term “kike” as having been supposedly derived from illiterate Jewish immigrants who refused to sign entry forms at Ellis Island by using an “x”—which they associated with the Christian cross—and using a circle instead. The Yiddish word for “circle” is “kikel,” from which the slur “kike” was allegedly derived.

“That is a very derogatory word for anyone who is Jewish,” Bernstein said. “I do not like anti-Semitism. I do not like that word, of course. It is almost like using the N-word, if you will, against someone who is black. But there are many times when that word is used and, unfortunately, it is a fitting moniker to many of the Democrats that are in Washington and around the country.”

After rattling off a long list of Jewish Democrats and progressive activists like Bernie Sanders, George Soros, Adam Schiff, and others, Bernstein declared that “these people not only deserve that moniker, but they’ve earned it.”

“When you vote against your own self interest, when you vote for ideas that are against your own demise and you support people that are anti-Semitic, what else can you expect?” Bernstein asked.

Wiles, who is deeply anti-Semitic and dedicates many of his TruNews programs to railing against Israel and the Jews—yet still regularly receives press credentials from the Trump administration—titled his Friday night program, “Jew Coup: Seditious Jews Orchestrating Trump Impeachment Lynching” and spent an hour and a half viciously attacking various Jewish members of Congress, the media, and the government.

“That’s the way the Jews work, they are deceivers, they plot, they lie, they do whatever they have to do to accomplish their political agenda,” Wiles said. “This ‘impeach Trump’ effort is a Jew coup and the American people better wake up to it really fast because this thing is moving now toward a vote in the House and then a trial in the Senate. We could have a trial before Christmas. This country could be in civil war at Christmastime. Members of the U.S. military are going to have to take a stand just like they did in the 1860s with the Civil War. They are going to have to decide: are you fighting for the North or the South?”

“People are going to be forced, possibly by this Christmas, to take a stand because of this Jew coup in the United States,” he added. “This is a coup led by Jews to overthrow the constitutionally elected president of the United States and it’s beyond removing Donald Trump, it’s removing you and me. That’s what’s at the heart of it.”

“You have been taken over by a Jewish cabal,” Wiles continued. “The church of Jesus Christ, you’re next. Get it through your head! They’re coming for you. There will be a purge. That’s the next thing that happens when Jews take over a country, they kill millions of Christians.”

Josh Bernstein #psycho rightwingwatch.org

Earlier today, radical right–wing commentator Josh Bernstein uploaded a video to his YouTube account in which he declared that the Democratic Party should be designated as a terrorist organization and its leaders should be tortured for daring to launch an impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

“These people are the lowest forms of life on earth,” Bernstein seethed. “They are lower than pond scum. They are the most disgusting, vile pieces of jackrabbit crap you could possibly imagine.”

“I would rip out their fingernails and their toenails one by one and then waterboard them in front of their families,” he bellowed. “That is what these pieces of crap deserve for what they are trying to do to this president.”

“They’re dirtbags, they’re scumbags, and they are the worst people on the planet earth,” Bernstein added. “I hope every single one of them pays for what they are doing. They are destroying the fabric of this country. We are turning into the divided states of America because of assclowns like these Democrats … This is a terrorist organization. The Democratic Party should be designated as a terrorist organization.”

Mike Adams and Alex Jones #conspiracy #wingnut rightwingwatch.org

Mike Adams, a far-right conspiracy theorist and scam artist behind a site called Natural News, warned Infowars listeners that “globalists” are orchestrating genocide against the humans, and that part of that plan is the announcement of an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. If impeachment fails, Adams says, the globalists will simply assassinate Trump.

Since Infowars was banished from nearly every social media site, viewership of the network and its lead star Alex Jones has plummeted. Jones has been ensnared in a handful of defamation lawsuits brought against him, and his network has been ratcheting its typically bizarre and nonsensical message to new levels of nihilistic weirdness.

On yesterday’s episode of Jones’ program, Adams was an in-studio guest, assisting Jones in providing commentary on a press conference at the White House with Trump and President Sauli Niinisto of Finland. But before the press conference started, Adams launched into a rant about his frustrations that humanity was “failing right now to get angry enough” about a supposed “globalist” plot to kill all humans.

“There’s a soft kill of humanity, and there’s a soft coup of Trump right now. Both of these are going to go to the hot phase. Both of these are going to go to hard kill and hard coup. This is what’s crucial to understand. They’re happening in parallel. They are the exact same globalists—they are, and they are linked. If they destroy Trump, they also succeed in destroying humanity because Trump represents the last hope for humanity to have a free nation on this planet,” Adams said.

Jones burst in, saying, “And that’s what’s so crazy is he really is for real and then people aren’t going, ‘This is wonderful!’ They’re like, ‘No! We don’t want it!’”

“Well, right. And humanity is going to be overrun here. Humanity is going to be absolutely destroyed if we don’t turn this around and wake people up enough,” Adams said. He insisted “there should be a million people swarming Washington, D.C., peacefully and lawfully right now” to put pressure on the nation’s leaders, presumably to stop the apocalyptic plan Adams believes is taking place. Jones agreed, urging what viewers he still has to track down their elected officials and “get in their face” and intimidate them.

In an unexpected twist, Adams distorted what a NASA scientist told The Telegraph about plans for NASA and the European Space Agency to send two rovers to Mars to drill into surfaces and search for life on the planet, and used the mischaracterization to further warn about what he foresees as the coming systemic murder of the human race by elites.

“It’s going to be life on Mars, death on Earth. They are genocidally cleansing, ethnically cleansing this planet to try to kill us off while they’re going to announce, ‘The universe is filled with life, but you don’t deserve it because you’re a lowly Earthling, a lowly human,’” Adams said.

Jones replied, “Yeah, it’s obviously the big secret,” and theorized that this plan to genocide the human race is “why they’ve got Trump compartmentalized.” Jones said that the shadowy elites plotting the destruction of the world are also trying to prevent Trump from learning that cures for cancer have already been developed.

Adams said, “You can’t even say it enough. The American people think that they’re in a fight right now with Trump, trying to save Trump from this illegal treasonous coup carried out by these seditious crisis actors in the media—who are CIA puppets, by the way. This is just the beginning of the fight. If Trump survives impeachment, don’t run around and think that, ‘Victory, victory!’ No. They’re going to try to assassinate Trump. They’re going to use area-effect weapons.”

It’s worth remembering that Trump appeared as Jones’ guest on this program during his campaign for president.

E.W. Jackson #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing pastor E.W. Jackson agreed with a listener who called in to his radio program yesterday and declared that billionaire George Soros should be arrested for treason for trying to “destroy America as we know it” by using his money to fund progressive organizations and candidates.

“I could not agree with you more,” Jackson told the caller. “It is certainly in the spirit of treason. And, you know, this is an interesting question that you’re raising because I’ve often thought, ‘Why is he not being investigated?’ Well, you have to have probable cause, you have to have some suspicion that the man is committing or has committed some kind of crime. Somehow, he needs to be looked at because I just believe this man is trying to do horrible, horrible deeds against this country and he’s using his mass wealth to do so.”

Jackson then raised the possibility of filing a class action lawsuit against Soros for “subverting the sovereign will of the American people, subverting our votes, invalidating our votes, violating our right to vote by trying to subvert the process and turn it on its head.”

“When folks like George Soros set out to subvert the will of the American people, there may be something there on the civil side,” he added. “I’m looking for an enterprising prosecutor, or an investigative reporter, or a lawyer, or an organization of some kind to really take a hard look at the stuff that he’s up to because … if anybody is some kind of subversive asset in this country, it is George Soros. He is bad news for this nation.”

Jackson then warned that Soros is focused on electing local prosecutors in order to build a massive legal army that answers directly to him and will do his bidding to target his enemies.

Shane Kohfield #psycho rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing radio ​personality Lars Larson hosted on his radio show a man who had his guns confiscated by the FBI, asking his guest to spell out an elaborate plan he ​said he devised for murdering antifascist organizers in the United States.

On September 12, Larson hosted Shane Kohfield on his program so that Kohfield could detail​, before a national radio audience, a plan ​he hatched to identify and kill antifascist activists​. Kohfield made headlines earlier this year when he yelled outside the Portland mayor’s house that he would “slaughter” antifascists and had a “detailed plan on how I would wipe out antifa.” The FBI Joint Terrorism Task confiscated Kohfield’s weapons as a result of his threats.

Larson began the interview by thanking Kohfield for his time served in the military, although the duo butted heads at the beginning of the interview because Kohfield was seemingly unable to respond to Larson’s questions about his statements regarding killing antifascists. After pushing Kohfield for explanations, Larson asked Kohfield to explain his “detailed plan” for killing antifascists .

So Kohfield did, and it was broadcast nationally, over the airwaves. ​He described the plan this way:

First​, veterans ​[will] join antifa social media pages and groups and get names of most active members of social media, along with getting the arrest records from rallies and write down all the names they see, as well as use arrest records. The veterans will use background check programs to find home addresses of all the members of antifa using the intelligence they had gathered​.

The veterans will take a map of the cities where members of antifa are known to live there. Grid overlays will be placed over the maps of the cities. The veterans will be broken down into squads. Each squad will be assigned its own grid and given a list of names and addresses in their assigned grid square. … The veterans would use Route4Me to find the most expedient route to hunt down the most violent members of antifa in their beds at night until every one of them was gone and every city in America, if need be, in a single well-coordinated night. The losses for antifa would catastrophic.

Larson asked, “So you are planning to hunt down and kill members of antifa?”

Kohfield repeatedly denied that his elaborate plan was ever meant to be enacted, but rather that it would serve as a “nuclear deterrent.” After pressing Kohfield, Larson was able to get Kohfield to admit that if his plan was carried out, it would result in the murdering of antifascists.

Lance Wallnau #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Trump-loving right-wing activist Lance Wallnau streamed a video on his Facebook page last Friday in which he declared that Rep. Adam Schiff “is a flippin’ nutjob” and fumed that in seeking to impeach President Trump, the Democrats are trying to “overturn the will of 600 million Americans,” which is quite a feat considering that the current population of the United States is roughly 330 million.

Wallnau was furious about Schiff’s performance during last week’s House Intelligence Committee hearing in which Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire was grilled about the whistleblower complaint regarding Trump’s effort to press the government of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

“Have you guys heard what this reprehensible character—I mean, the guy looks like he needs deliverance,” Wallnau said. “We can be compassionate and say, ‘Nero’s flippin’ crazy’ while he’s killing Christians. This guy is a flippin’ nutjob.”

“I was dumbfounded when I heard it,” he continued. “He said it was an interpretation of the transcript—an interpretation. A precedent-setting interpretation from an intelligence committee leader in order to set up the president for impeachment to overturn the will of 600 million Americans. This is the latest attack because that swampy, elite group … [wants] to take this man out.” (For what it is worth, Trump won just under 63 million votes in 2016, which is nearly 3 million fewer than Hillary Clinton received.)

“This is the battle of Western civilization,” Wallnau warned. “If Christians don’t wake up, they’re in for a rude awakening.”

Jesse Lee Peterson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Last week, we posted a clip of right-wing pastor and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson responding to the news that megachurch pastor Jarrid Wilson had taken his own life by proclaiming that Wilson had never really been a Christian and was actually controlled by Satan.

On his radio program on Friday, Peterson doubled down on this assertion, claiming that depression and similar mental health issues are caused by sin and that “true” Christians don’t sin, which means that those who do suffer from such issues are actually children of Satan.

“A true Christian is never depressed or has suicidal thoughts,” Peterson said. “There are Christians who believe that you can be born-again of God but still sin. Anyone who sins are subject and are slaves to those things and so, if you still sin and call yourself a man or woman of God, you are a liar and the truth is not in you. Christ came so that you should not sin once you are born-again because sin is of your father, the devil.”

“One of the reasons that you are seeing all of these Christians who are depressed and [having] suicidal thoughts and committing suicide and living just like the world is because they are still of the world,” he added. “Satan is still their daddy.”

“When you don’t sin, folks, you are not going to have all those issues,” Peterson continued. “Perfect and holy people do not commit suicide, they are not depressed, they don’t deal with depression and all that stuff. Anyone who is dealing with that stuff, Satan is your daddy.”

Rick Wiles #racist #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles dedicated his entire “TruNews” program last night to denouncing Jews because of the soon-to-be-released Hollywood movie, “The Hunt,” which features a plot in which wealthy elites gather to hunt humans for sport.

Wiles, who is deeply anti-Semitic and dedicates many of his TruNews programs to railing against Israel and the Jews—yet still regularly receives press credentials from the White House—declared that the film was an explicit warning from rich Jews that they intend to kill Christians in America.

“It’s time to shut down Jewish Hollywood,” Wiles fumed. “They’re talking about murdering conservative Christian rural citizens in this country. That’s no joke. The Jews of Hollywood spent tens of millions of dollars to produce that movie. This is not a joke, this isn’t satire. They’re sending a message: get ready to kill conservatives.”

“The Jews are plotting a Jacobin revolution in this country,” he continued. “If that hasn’t convinced you, what will it take? Next year, when they’re shooting you?”

“Rich, powerful Jews are telling you to your face, ‘We are going to hunt you down,'” Wiles declared. “I didn’t make that movie. The Jews in Hollywood made that movie. It wasn’t made by Presbyterians. It wasn’t made by Roman Catholics. It wasn’t made by Methodists. It was made by elite, rich Jews who hate Christians.”

Sandy Rios #fundie #racist rightwingwatch.org

Sandy Rios says that when progressives criticize white supremacy, what they’re really criticizing is conservative Christianity. Rios works as the American Family Association’s director of governmental affairs and has been present at conservative events like the Values Voter Summit and the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

On this morning’s episode of “Sandy Rios in the Morning” on American Family Radio, Rios argued that people who speak out against white supremacy in the United States aren’t actually talking about white supremacy, but rather they are secretly attacking conservative Christians. Rios also claimed that comparing President Trump to a Nazi is unfounded because the Nazis also killed some white people along with the millions of Jews they murdered in a genocide.

“It’s not about your skin color and when they go further and compare President Trump to Nazis and their white racism, it’s really silly because, remember, the Nazis killed thousands, hundreds of thousands, of people, but guess what? They were white,” Rios said. “The Nazis were Aryan supremacists. They had a certain superhuman race they wanted to develop and most white people did not qualify.”

She continued, “So when the left is talking about white supremacism, they’re talking about the roots of this country. They’re talking about Christianity. They’re talking about hard work, about capitalism and free-market values. They’re talking about everything that has made America what it is. That’s what they mean.”

Rios went on to cite examples of left-of-center people criticizing racist and controversial remarks made by conservative activist Candace Owens to make her point.

“It may seem as though the hatred is focused on the president, but as I have said to you before, it is really focused on us—those of us that love this country, even if you don’t support Trump fully but you love the Constitution, you love the founders, you believe in Jesus—you are an object of their wrath.”

Rios made a similar argument in 2017 when she argued that the term “alt-right”—the label the white supremacist movement fixated to itself in the run-up to the 2016 election—was coined to denigrate conservatives, especially those who speak “in the name of Jesus.”

Chris McDonald and Mark Taylor #conspiracy #wingnut rightwingwatch.org

On last night’s episode of his “The MC Files” program, radical conspiracy theorist Chris McDonald and his guest, fellow radical right-wing conspiracy theorist and so-called “firefighter prophet” Mark Taylor, agreed that Hurricane Dorian is a “false flag” created by the “deep state” supposedly in order to distract Americans from the fact that former FBI director James Comey and other high-level members of the Obama administration will all be going to prison.

McDonald insisted that it was not a coincidence that just as the news was focused on the fact that even though the Department of Justice had decided not to prosecute Comey for leaking memos chronicling his conversations with President Trump, the president and his associates were suggesting that Comey’s legal troubles were not over, when suddenly everyone turned their attention to the hurricane.

“When you get these stories and all of a sudden—boom—you’ve got an almost Category 6 storm,” McDonald said, “it does not take a genius to figure out it’s called a distraction and it’s called a false flag.”

“Absolutely, brother,” agreed Taylor. “These guys are going to be indicted, they are going to go to jail, they are going to go to prison so it’s coming, guys, we just have to be patient. But it’s not by coincidence that the hordes of chaos have been released because they know their time is short.”

“This is one of the most dangerous times right now for us,” Taylor added, “because this is war. That hurricane right there, that is a declaration of war against the people. What do the shootings and these hurricanes and all of these things that are being generated, what does it have to do [with]? It has to do with one thing in particular: the same thing Hitler did in London, England, during The Blitz. They are literally trying to kill the will of man.”
