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.”

Chris McDonald and Mark Taylor #falseflag #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.”

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.”

Josh Bernstein #conspiracy #pratt rightwingwatch.org

During his appearance on Bill Deagle’s radio program yesterday, radical right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein called on President Trump to order the military to arrest the heads of social media companies for supposedly censoring conservative voices on their platforms and warned that failing to do so will result in “millions of Americans” rising up to address the issue “by any means possible.”

“What President Trump needs to do is he needs to arrest the heads of Google, Twitter, and Facebook and shut down Silicon Valley,” Bernstein declared. “I would go in with the federal government and shut it down because what they are doing is illegal. They are usurping the First Amendment’s freedom of speech. They must be shut down. And if not, we need to figure out a way to get them gone.”

“The federal government needs to get involved and if they have to send the military in and drag these MFers out by their hair, that’s what needs to happen,” he added. “They are not going to sit here and destroy the freedom of speech in America and our Constitution that we have fought for and bled for and died for for hundreds of years. We are not going to let it happen. And I will tell you right now, if they continue to do this, they are going to have a major problem, not just from people like me but millions of Americans that are not going to put up with this. Let me tell you, we will take care of this by any means possible.”

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.

Rick Wiles #racist rightwingwatch.org

During his daily “Morning Manna” broadcast earlier this week, End Time radio and television host Rick Wiles told Christians that “God did not inspire the formation of Judaism” and instructed them to get rid of any items containing the Star of David image because it is an occult symbol.

“I know this is difficult for many Christians to grasp, but God did not inspire the formation of Judaism,” Wiles said, asserting that modern-day Judaism was created during the Babylonian exile and is rooted in the false teaching of the Talmud mixed with Babylonian occult beliefs and worship.

“I’m sorry to shock all the hardcore Christians Zionists,” he said, “but modern-day Israel’s Star of David flag has nothing to do with King David and ancient Israel. It has nothing to do with God. The Star of David flag was inspired by Kabbala. The star in Israel’s flag is the same star god condemned by God in Amos 5:26, which says, ‘But you carried a tabernacle for your Moloch and the image of your idols and the star of your god, which you made to yourself.'”

“I will be very direct with you,” Wiles continued. “If you have a flag, a pendant, a poster, any item with the Israeli Star of David image, you have an occult image in your home, in your church, in your office or on your body and I say to you now, get rid of it. Maybe you didn’t know it until now and God will allow you some grace here because you didn’t know what it was. But I’m telling you now that that Star of David image that you are wearing or that you have in your church or in your office or on your website, I am telling you it is Babylonian occult Kabbala imagery and now you know it, now you have to make a decision what you are going to do with it because now you don’t have that grace to say, ‘Well, I didn’t know what it was.’ I just told you what it is, it is Kabbala occult imagery. ”

Gordon Klingenschmitt #homophobia rightwingwatch.org

On a recent episode of his “Pray In Jesus Name” program, religious right activist and former Colorado state legislator Gordon Klingenschmitt and his guest, right-wing journalist Alex Newman, agreed that teaching students about LGBTQ history should be illegal.

Klingenschmitt was outraged that Colorado recently enacted legislation requiring public schools to adopt LGBTQ-friendly curriculum, claiming that it will result in teachers delivering “mandatory homosexual lectures to children.”

“They’re redefining all of the textbooks,” he said. “It doesn’t make sense. Years ago, this would be pedophiles recruiting and grooming children for their own perverse pleasure down the road. Why don’t we see this as an illegal measure of recruiting children into sodomy?”

“That is exactly how we should see it,” replied Newman, who is a regular contributor to the John Birch Society magazine, The New American. “Years ago, these people would have gone to prison for this sort of stuff, exposing children to obscene material, grooming children, exposing them to sexual and indecent material. That’s a crime.”

“The government schools all across America are still exposing the children to this stuff,” he continued. “It’s getting more and more obscene. And I think, quite simply, they have accomplished a radical transformation of the culture using the government school system with kind of air support from the far-left media, and from Hollyweird; the Satanic propaganda, the filth, the LGBT agenda that comes out of all of these places.”

“We can already start to see what is happening,” Newman added. “The breakdown of the family, skyrocketing abortion numbers, school shootings, the collapse of our society … It is an abomination. It is a tragedy of immense proportions and, honestly, I don’t think our society is going to survive another generation or two of this.”

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.”

Rick Wiles #racist #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

On last night’s episode of his “TruNews” program, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles once again claimed that Jewish “kill teams” are carrying out mass shootings in America in order to pressure the government to implement gun control and disarm Christians so that they can be executed.

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—has dubbed these death squads “Irgun,” which was a Zionist paramilitary force that endorsed the use of violence to establish a Jewish homeland in Israel in the 1930s and 40s. Wiles claims that the same force is operating in America today.

“There are kill teams,” Wiles said, “death squad kill teams moving throughout America, killing, slaughtering innocent Americans. And there is an agenda and I have named it Irgun and I am risking my life saying it’s Irgun. I-R-G-U-N. Irgun! The country is being taken over.”

“Irgun has kill teams in America,” Wiles shouted. “We’re at the end of this country. They’re slaughtering innocent people on a Saturday afternoon, shopping at Walmart. My God, what does it take to get the American people to wake up and defend themselves? To our Palestinian friends, to all of our Arab friends, Irgun is in America, the same terrorists that took the Arab lands in 1948, they’re here in America, killing us. I’m risking my life saying this. If something happens to me, know who did it.”

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on YouTube yesterday reacting to the news that Jeffrey Epstein, the hedge-fund multimillionaire with friends in high places who was awaiting trial for sexual assault and trafficking of minors, was found dead in his jail cell on Saturday. In her video, Crokin speculated that Epstein had either been secretly executed by a military tribunal or was allowed to be murdered by the “Clinton mafia” as part of a sting operation.

“Jeffrey Epstein did not commit suicide,” Crokin said. “I can guarantee you that 100 percent.”

“If Jeffrey Epstein is dead, I believe that it possibly could have been an execution,” she speculated, “and I believe he possibly could have already faced a military tribunal and been executed. I believe that’s what happened with John McCain, and I also believe that’s what happened with George [Bush] Sr. I think that is one possibility. So, if he is dead, the good guys, the white hats, they already got all the evidence they needed, they already got all the testimony that they needed to prosecute others and if he is dead, I believe he did go through a military tribunal and was executed.”

Crokin then raised the possibility that Epstein “was murdered by the Clinton mafia and it was staged to look like a suicide and that the murder was allowed to happen by the white hats.”

“The theory is that the good guys knew that the Clinton mafia would try to take Jeffrey Epstein out,” she said. “The theory is that the white hats allowed Jeffrey Epstein to be a sitting duck and allowed the Clinton mafia to knock him off in a sting operation so they could bust the Clintons in the act.”

Mat Staver #homophobia rightwingwatch.org

Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver appeared on conservative Christian radio show Crosstalk last week to continue the Religious Right’s dishonest drumbeat against a non-binding resolution passed by the California General Assembly that calls on religious and other leaders to promote equitable and compassionate treatment of LGBTQ people in the state.

Staver claimed that the non-binding resolution was “essentially a directive” that “targets pastors and churches” and “discriminates” against Christian counselors and people who have “overcome” unwanted sexual attractions. Staver noted that the resolution’s sponsor, Assemblyman Evan Low, had offered but then withdrawn legislation last year that would have labeled conversion therapy fraudulent; Staver repeated the lie that the legislation would have “banned” portions of the Bible dealing with homosexuality.

But Staver went even further, charging that the addition of the “Q” to “LGBT” in the text of the resolution meant that it was promoting a “spectrum” that includes not only those who are homosexual or “gender confused,” but also “minor-attracted individuals” which he described as “somebody who wants to have sexual relationships with someone under the legal age.”

Staver repeated that charge when the conversation shifted to talk about federal legislation and cases awaiting Supreme Court action on whether the Civil Rights Act’s ban on discrimination on the basis of sex applies to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Staver denounced the Equality Act as “an LGBT propaganda bill” and the Do No Harm Act, which he said would “gut” the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

And when host Jim Schneider asked him about the more than 200 corporations that have signed a brief urging the Supreme Court to find that discrimination on the basis sexual orientation and gender identity is banned by the Civil Rights Act, Staver accused those companies of trying to get the Supreme Court to force Americans to support people who want to have sex with minors:

They’re trying to use their corporate clout to send a message to the United States Supreme Court to do what the Equality Act would do. And that is elevate sexual orientation and gender identity—and that’s this whole spectrum, by the way, that’s a huge spectrum, which includes gender identity, includes minor-attracted individuals. Now what is that? That’s someone who believes that sex with minors is OK, that it should not be stigmatized, or criminalized, that having multiple relationships, not being monogamous, is OK. They are really on board with all of that, that whole agenda. And they’re wanting to force it on the rest of the country, but they’re wanting to do it through a 5-to-4 vote at the United States Supreme Court.

David Barton #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Earlier this month, Religious Right pseudo-historian David Barton asserted on his “WallBuilders Live” radio program that “religious folks” are entitled to “more protection” under the First Amendment than everyone else.

Barton was praising recent Supreme Court rulings having to do with the issues of religious liberty and expression, such as the Bladensburg cross case, and hailed the Court for supposedly recognizing that the Founding Father intended for religious citizens to be granted “added, special protection” under the Constitution … three times more protection, to be exact.

“Secular speech is protected by the Constitution,” Barton said, “but religious speech has several protections in the First Amendment.”

Barton said that while everyone has a right to free speech, religious speech and expression are “protected by three clauses,” which means that his speech is entitled to “more protection, if you will, than just normal, secular speech.”

He insisted that the idea that secular speech or expression should receive the same protections as religious speech or expression is unconstitutional because “that’s not what the First Amendment gave me.”

“It gave me more protection because I get my speech but if it’s religious, I get it twice, and if it is religious with others, I get it three times,” Barton claimed. “In addition to free speech, there is also free exercise of religion, which often involves free speech. For me to exercise my faith means I will speak about it, I will live it out, I will activate it, I will do it. And, by the way, I have the right to assembly, so I can get together with other believers and we can act out our faith … While religious folks have at least three different forms of protection under the First Amendment for their speech, secular folks have their protections as well for speech and assembly, but they just don’t have the same religious motivations.”

When Barton’s son, Tim, tried to clarify that all citizens “have the exact same protections that a religious person does,” Barton disputed that assessment.

“You actually get added protection because it singles out your religious expression,” he said, “That’s a level of protection the Founding Fathers wanted to make sure that religious folks had, so they singled that out to give, if you will, added protection if you’re a religious folk … The First Amendment says, ‘Hey, religion is so vitally important that you get added, special protection.’”

Mark Taylor Chris McDonald #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

So-called “firefighter prophet” Mark Taylor appeared on Chris McDonald’s “The MC Files” program earlier this week, where the two once again asserted that actor Tom Hanks is a pedophile, which is a baseless smear that has gotten a good deal of traction in the right-wing fever swamps in recent months.

McDonald, who frequently hosts Republican Rep. Phil Roe of Tennessee on his program, was alarmed by reports that a Disney cruise ship had supposedly passed by Jeffrey Epstein’s private island (Epstein, who was recently arrested for sexually abusing and trafficking minors, owns an island, Little Saint James, which is located off the coast of St. Thomas, which happens to be a port of call for Disney cruise ships.)

“We all know that Disney is one of the most sick organizations in this country,” he said. “They target children. They have become, really, a haven—their hierarchy, the executives—for transgenderism, homosexuality, lesbianism, and pedophilia. They have sunk to a level that people that put any money into Disney World should be ashamed of themselves.”

McDonald and Taylor asserted that Walt Disney was a Mason and that his theme parks are filled with Masonic symbolism, which promoted McDonald to declare that it’s “not by mistake that when the movie came out, ‘Saving Mr. Banks’—which basically had to do with Walt Disney—that none other than Tom Hanks was the one that played Walt Disney. And Tom Hanks has his own little issue right now with the questions of pedophilia and trafficking surrounding him.”

“Disney is not innocent,” responded Taylor. “There is a reason why you don’t want your kids watching any Disney programming—that’s why it’s called ‘programming,’ because they are programming your kids. It may look so innocent; trust me, it’s not—there’s frequencies in there, there’s pedophilia stuff in there, it’s just nasty. Don’t go Disney, guys, don’t take your kids to Disney. If you are a godly man or woman, nobody should be walking on that property with their family.”

Taylor asserted that “kids disappear all the time” from Disney parks and cruise ships, suggesting that they are being taken to Castaway Cay, which is a private island in the Bahamas that is leased by Disney for use by its cruise line.

“Tom Hanks filmed ‘Splash,’ there,” Taylor said, before noting that Hanks also starred in the film “Castaway.”

“No coincidences,” he said. “Anywhere Tom Hanks has been is already suspect at this point, because we know this guy’s history.”

Tiffany FitzHenry #conspiracy #psychoceramics rightwingwatch.org

Tiffany FitzHenry, a self-described “bestselling author, public speaker, screenwriter, [and] Hollywood whistleblower,” appeared on Chris McDonald’s “The MC Files” program earlier this week, where she claimed that country music songs are actually spells used to control people, and that the musical scales used in contemporary music were designed to “change your DNA.”

FitzHenry claimed that she had recently been doing some editing work for “a massive, massive country music star” and was shown a “list of words” that the performer receives that must be used in their songs.

“There are lists of words that they get that they have to put these words, certain words, into their songs,” she said. “These are spells. If you’ve ever wondered, ‘Why does every country music song mention alcohol, whiskey?’ I think there was a study done that said 90 percent of country music songs in some form or fashion mention or make reference to, if not outright [promote] drinking. There has been a great illusion put over us and music is so powerful.”

FitzHenry went on to assert that “the music scale was changed” by the Rockefellers or Rothchilds back in the early part of the 20th century to shift it away from the natural frequency created by God.

“There is a frequency that is sort of the God frequency and then there is a frequency that is just sort of off from that,” she said. “Our scale of modern music [is] off from the real resonance, it’s just a scale down. We don’t realize it, but all of our music is tainted in this way and sound has a powerful influence, a powerful effect on our bodies, on our minds. We’re 75 percent water, and so when something reverberates though you, it changes your DNA.”

Matt Walsh #fundie rightwingwatch.org

(tagging this “#fundie”, since “#asshole” doesn’t seem to be a thing.)

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh argued on a podcast that the minimum wage should be placed at zero dollars per hour and argued that some people do work that is not worth a living wage.

Walsh, who earlier this year argued that 12-year-old rape victims should be forced to have children, streamed a podcast with The Daily Wire on Friday in which he argued that because it is feasible not to work, the minimum wage should not exist in the United States. His commentary comes after news that the House passed legislation that would gradually increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2025.

“Zero should be the baseline for work because that’s the baseline amount of effort you can put in,” Walsh explained. “It’s possible for someone to do zero work, which means that they have earned zero dollars.”

Walsh went on to describe a negative experience he had with a cashier at a McDonald’s restaurant in which the cashier he ordered from made him feel unwelcome. That cashier, and all fast food industry workers who behave like that cashier, he argued, deserve wages as low as 25 cents or 50 cents per hour.

“How could [their work] possibly be worth $15? It’s not. It’s not worth $8 an hour. Somebody like that—I guess that the company, the restaurant, the store, has some need for them. That’s why they’re still there. So, what are they worth? 50 cents an hour at most? 25 cents? They’re worth very close to zero. Maybe not zero, but very close to it. And so, that’s what they should be paid,” Walsh said.

Fast food workers that make him feel good, Walsh said, could be worth $30 or $50 per hour.

“It should be a situation where there are people [behind a fast food counter] who are making $35 an hour and there are people who are making 35 cents an hour. That’s how wide the gap should be between wages, because that’s how wide the gap in effort is and the wages should reflect that,” Walsh said.

Minimum wages exist to create a minimum standard of living for people who work and to stabilize the economy. The United States’ federal minimum wage has not increased since 2009, despite significant inflation, and 29 states and Washington, D.C., have minimum wages above the federal floor.

Last month, Paula White, a televangelist who is a key spiritual adviser to and supporter of President Trump, preached at The River Church in Tampa, Florida, which was founded by fellow right-wing pastor and radical conspiracy theorist Rodney Howard-Browne. During her sermon, White proclaimed that she is making the White House “holy ground” simply by her presence.

“The church is Christ’s body in which he speaks and acts and by which he fills everything,” White proclaimed, “including the White House, including government halls.”

“How does he do that?” she asked. “He does that through you. He does that through me. Wherever I go, God rules. When I walk on White House grounds, God walks on White House grounds. When I walked in The River, God walked in The River. When I go in to the dry cleaners, that dry cleaning place becomes holy. I have every right and authority to declare the White House as holy ground because I was standing there and where I stand is holy.”

Paul Ray Ramsey, Patrick Casey, Scott Greer, Matt Parrott and Brad Griffen #racist rightwingwatch.org

White nationalists, although having grown skeptical of the Trump administration for its support of Israel, still circled their wagons around Trump, defending the remarks against criticisms that they are stoking racial animosity in the United States.

Paul Ray Ramsey, a white nationalist who is known as “Ramzpaul” online, tweeted that the progressive congresswomen were “elected from their fellow tribesmen who were imported into America” and only love the United States for “the wealth that they can loot.” He added that “they dance with glee with the thought of eliminating us.” Patrick Casey, the leader of the white nationalist organization Identity Evropa (which has rebranded under a new name), wrote on Twitter that although he still has reservations about the Trump administration’s current policy trajectory, “Trump escalating his attacks on these four horrid women—women who simply do not belong in America, let alone in our government—is more than a little satisfying.”

Scott Greer, a disgraced Daily Caller editor who was fired after it was revealed he was writing articles in a white nationalist publication under a false name, praised Trump and wrote that the day he tweeted his attack on the congresswomen was “the day he became president.” Greer has longstanding connections to white nationalist circles in and around Washington.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, a Republican former congressman, compared Trump’s rhetoric toward the congresswomen to that of David Duke, a longtime Klu Klux Klan leader whom Trump declined chances to disavow while on the campaign trail. Duke, who, like some other white supremacists, has slowly soured on Trump, took issue with that comparison, asserting that Trump would never praise white people as explicitly as Duke does.

But not everybody’s happy. White nationalist Matt Parrott ruefully wrote that Trump “doesn’t create white tribalism” with racist tweets, but rather “exploits the white tribalism which has been bubbling up and boiling over long before he even rode down the gilded escalator.” And Brad Griffin, who authors the blog Occidental Dissent under the name “Hunter Wallace,” seems to have had his fill of Trump, writing that Trump wasn’t “stoking white nationalism” in his tweets, since white nationalists “aren’t supporting him anymore.” Wallace alleged that Trump’s comments were really about the progressive women’s “lack of subservience to Israel.”

He reiterated that point, saying “we have found in our nation, that it’s an important aspect of our government to have a Bible teacher in the midst of our political leaders.”

“Mrs. Vice President has said you are a Christian nation,” he told the crowd. “In America, we view ourselves as a Christian nation. But what is a Christian nation? A Christian nation is a Christian nation to the degree that the people in the nation reflect the attributes of God.”

Drollinger went on to say that it falls to the institution of the church to reflect the mercy, grace, love, patience and kindness of God, adding that other attributes include justice and righteousness, which God has “asked the state to manifest.”

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles warned on his “TruNews” program last night that the rise of companies like Impossible Foods, which is developing plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy products, is part of a satanic plot to alter human DNA so that people can no longer worship God.

“When you go to your favorite fast food restaurant, you are going to be eating a fake hamburger,” Wiles said. “You’re going to go to the grocery store and buy a pound of fake hamburger or a fake steak, and you won’t know that it was grown in some big corporation’s laboratory. This is the nightmare world that they are taking us into. They’re changing God’s creation. Why? Because they want to be God.”

“God is an environmentalist,” Wiles continued. “He takes this very seriously. He created this planet, he created the universe and he’s watching these Luciferians destroy this planet, destroy the animal kingdom, destroy the plant kingdom, change human DNA. Why? They want to change human DNA so that you can’t be born again. That’s where they’re going with this, to change the DNA of humans so it will be impossible for a human to be born again. They want to create a race of soulless creatures on this planet.”

David Hayes #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Yesterday, Dave Hayes, a self-declared prophet, Christian author, and online QAnon activist who is better known as the “Praying Medic,” posted a video in which he claimed that John Kerry and Barack Obama are behind the increasing tensions between the United States and Iran because they are trying to start a world war before President Trump has them publicly executed by the military.

Hayes claimed that Kerry and Obama and other members of the “deep state” are working to thwart Trump’s efforts to broker a peace deal with Iran because they seek to create a global conflagration that will destroy the United States and create a one-world government.

“They want Iran to continue building nuclear weapons and eventually be able to start World War III so they can get rid of Russia, they can get rid of the United States, and they can get rid of all international borders and have their big happy world global government,” Hayes said. “That’s the long term plan of people like Kerry and Obama. They’re trying to get this done before they go to prison.”

“Most of them are going to military tribunals and a lot of them are going to be facing the death penalty,” he added. “I honestly believe, I think we are going to see public executions. I think there is no other way to send a signal to corrupt people that you should never, ever try this again. I think the only way to do that is the military is going to oversee public executions of some people.”

On Wednesday night’s episode of his “TruNews” program, during which he praised Alabama’s radical new anti-abortion law and warned that those who support reproductive rights will spend eternity being “aborted continuously forever” by demons in Hell, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles also found time to blame Jews for the legalization of abortion in this nation in the first place, declaring that “we would not have abortion in America if it was not for powerful, influential rich Jews in America.”

Wiles returned to that theme on last night’s program, where he read from an op-ed in the Israeli paper Haaretz written by Debra Nussbaum Cohen, in which she argued that Alabama’s law is “a threat to my religious freedom as a Jew … because according to classical Jewish text and most rabbinic interpreters, a developing embryo or fetus is not ‘an unborn child’ or ‘person,’ but has the legal status of an appendage of the pregnant woman. It is part of her body, not a separate person, until the moment that a majority of a viable baby capable of independent life has been born.”

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, blasted Cohen’s op-ed and boldly declared that Christians are going to take back America from the Jews “and we are going to impose Christian rule.”

“We Christians are standing up and pushing out Zionism,” Wiles said. “That’s what we’re doing. Zionism brought the slaughter of 65 million babies to America and we’re going to end it and we are going to impose Christian rule in this country.”

“Why are you imposing Judaism on me?” he asked. “Because that’s exactly what’s been done in America since 1973 with Roe v. Wade. Judaism was imposed on me, on my Christian nation and we became a Jewish nation that kills babies. That’s against my Christian beliefs … Judaism became the law of the land in America. That’s precisely what the courts have ruled. They have based their rulings on the Zohar, on the Talmud, and now we have Zionistic Talmudic law ruling this country and resulting in the death of millions of babies. And Ms. Cohen, we Christians are standing up and we’re telling you that we’re done with Zionism, we’re done with your values. We are going to impose Christian values in America again, whether you like it or not.”

Wiles went on to declare that Jews have been able to impose their values on America because they controls the banks, the technology, and the media in this country, and have even been able to gain control over most Christian churches through bribery.

Josh Bernstein #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Radical right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein posted a video today in which he declared that Rep. Ilhan Omar is a “cancer” and a “jihadist terrorist” who wants to kill Americans and should be charged with treason.

“We had Ilhan Omar laughing about Al Qaida,” Bernstein fumed. “A sworn enemy of the United States, people that want to kill us and have killed Americans, she laughs about them. She said on 9/11, ‘Some people did something.’ Yeah, people that you probably knew and supported, OK, Jihad Omar? And then she supports CAIR, she supports Hamas, she supports Hezbollah, she supports the Muslim Brotherhood, she probably supports ISIS.”

“This is an infiltrator,” he added. “This is somebody that’s not a member of Congress, this is somebody that is a jihadist terrorist that is inside Congress like a cancer [that] is trying to metastasize and spread her cancerous genes to other members to infect the body of our government. She wants to kill Americans and American policy and American freedom and liberty and prosperity by spreading hatred, by spreading lies, by spreading disinformation, and basically supporting people that are against the United States.”

“For that alone, I think she is treasonous,” Bernstein declared. “I think that she should be brought up on charges of treason for her activities and her associations with known terrorist groups … I think we ought to get serious about it, because these people have infiltrated our government. They weren’t elected to represent us; they were selected to destroy us.”

Peter LaBarbera #homophobia rightwingwatch.org

A group of anti-LGBTQ activists gathered on the sidewalk in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday to denounce the Court’s marriage equality ruling in Obergefell, which was handed down four years ago to the day. It was announced that some of the speakers would have to leave the gathering early in order to attend a meeting at the White House.

The two-hour anti-equality “rally”—really a handful of people talking mostly to themselves—was organized by longtime anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera. Speakers portrayed the LGBTQ movement, the Obergefell decision, and the Equality Act recently passed by the House as threats to children and to religious freedom.

LaBarbera has visions of turning this annual protest on the anniversary of the marriage equality decision into something akin to the massive annual March for Life that anti-choice protesters organize on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. LaBarbera has a long way to go in winning public support for his anti-equality agenda, but he and his pals clearly have influential friends in the Trump White House and on the increasingly Trumpified federal courts.

LaBarbera’s Americans For Truth About Homosexuality joined forces last year with MassResistance, whose leader has said that, according to God’s “very brutal” rules, LGBT activists—described as wanting to destroy society’s morality should be “destroyed.” And earlier this year, LaBarbera teamed up with a wildly anti-LGBTQ bunch to launch the “Gone Too Far” movement, whose premise seems to be that the bulk of the Religious Right movement is just too darn nice to homosexuals.

A few speakers from the Gone Too Far event joined LaBarbera in front of the Supreme Court on Wednesday, including Scott Lively, the notorious author of “The Pink Swastika,” as well as pastor Stephen Broden and “ex-gay” activist Stephen Black, who portrayed efforts to restrict harmful conversion therapy as an attempt to recruit children into homosexuality. Broden denounced “sodomites” and read from conservative justices’ dissents from the marriage equality ruling, and he called for state officials to “nullify”—refuse to abide by—what he called the “illegal” Obergefell ruling.

Lively provided a discourse of the five stages of “homofascism” and gave a long rant against former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, author of several landmark decisions advancing legal equality for LGBTQ people. Lively complained about the decision in Lawrence v. Texas, which overturned sodomy laws that made gay people de facto criminals. But he said he hasn’t even read the Obergefell decision because he doesn’t believe it was legitimate because Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan had performed marriages for same-sex couples and therefore had a conflict of interest.

Two of the speakers were introduced with the announcement that would have to be leaving the gathering to attend a meeting at the White House: Tennessee Pastors Network President Dale Walker and Warriors for Christ’s Rich Penkoski.

Before heading to the White House, Walker screamed about what he said was the spread of hate crimes against Christians. He went on to brag about his recent victories in getting LGBT-themed displays removed from public libraries and in mobilizing protests against “Drag Queen Story Hour” library programs. Penkoski compared the LGBT movement to German Nazis. Last year, the Christian Broadcasting Network ran a sympathetic story about Penkoski when Facebook suspend the Warriors for Christ Facebook page over posts it classified as “hate speech.” Penkoski and others sued to stop state officials from recognizing gay marriage or respecting any statute treating sexual orientation as a civil rights matter. The case was appropriately titled, Penkoski v. Justice.

Also speaking was Jonathan Alexandre of Liberty Counsel Action, who called the Obergefell decision an attempt to “tear down” what is decent in society. The only good thing about the decision, he said, is that it “sounded an alarm to freedom-loving Americans.”

Michael Heath, former head of the Christian Civic League of Maine, and an advocate for criminalizing homosexuality, quoted St. John Chrysostum, a fourth- and fifth-century church father, as saying homosexuals are “worse than murderers.” Heath added, “And homosexuals destroy not only their own souls, they also destroy the soul of a nation.” He characterized the Obergefell decision as “diabolical” and “tyrannical.”

Diane Gramley, who heads the Pennsylvania affiliate of the American Family Association, said that America’s future depends on Obergefell being overturned. Gramley doesn’t have a very good handle on America’s past, as evidence by her recently telling of a preposterous lie about the police who harassed LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn 50 years ago: In her telling, absent of any evidence, the New York City police officers who raided the bar that night were really trying to rescue a transgender child who was being sexually abused.

Father Paul Sullins, a Catholic priest associated with the Ruth Institute—a spin-off from the National Organization for Marriage—proclaimed his love for homosexual people while praising Pope Francis for calling marriage equality and gender ideology “demonic.”

Rounding out the “rally” was a friend of LaBarbera’s who said the court’s marriage equality decision was “tantamount to what happened on 9/11,” and a few speakers who identified themselves as “ex-gay” and/or “ex-transgender,” arguing that their ability to “change” undermines the legal basis for protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination. LaBarbera complained that the media—not even Fox News—will tell their stories.

Paul McGruie #conspiracy #psychoceramics rightwingwatch.org

Last week, End Times author Paul McGuire claimed on his radio show that the United States government has mind-control technology that can be used to “cause a mass riot where people are angry or hear voices,” and was used during the Gulf War to convince Iraqi soldiers that God had told them to surrender.

McGuire, co-author of the book “Trumpocalypse: The End-Times President, a Battle Against the Globalist Elite, and the Countdown to Armageddon,” was discussing the supposed dangers presented by 5G technology when he claimed that the government’s mind-control technology can be activated through AM radio waves, as well as cellphone signals.

According to McGuire, the American military used this technology during Operation Desert Storm. McGuire referred to it as “voice to God” technology, claiming that mind-control messaging conveyed through the radio frequency caused Iraqi soldiers to hear voices urging them to surrender to the American forces.

“The American military, using mind-control technology, attached an invisible rider on the AM frequency … that all these extremist Muslims would be listening to,” McGuire said. “And they knew that American soldiers wouldn’t be listening to this station because Americans don’t speak the language and they wouldn’t be into the music, so they were able to target the population.”

He continued, “The rider frequency that they attached on the AM signal frequency contained what is called ‘voice to God’ technology where all the people listening to this music station, Iraqi music station, actually heard in their heads, they couldn’t hear it audibly, but they heard the voice of God commanding them to surrender to the Americans and commanding them to lay down their weapons.”

McGuire warned his listeners that the same thing “could be done not just with an AM signal but with a cellphone signal.”

Jared Taylor #racist #psycho rightwingwatch.org

U.S. white nationalist Jared Taylor wrote the foreword to “Ethnic Apocalypse: The Coming European Civil War,” a new posthumously published book by French “New Right” and “identitarian” writer Guillaume Faye, who died in March. A note from the publisher acknowledges that the English title is a toned-down version of the French, which was “Guerre Civile Raciale”—Racial Civil War.

In his foreword, Taylor, founder of a white nationalist think tank, describes his long friendship with Faye, who he says was “among the very best-known spokesmen for the survival of our people.” Taylor declares “Ethnic Apocalypse” to be “the darkest, bravest, and frankest book my friend has ever written” and “a brilliant analysis of the mortal threat to us of massive non-white immigration.”

Taylor admiringly quotes Faye’s articulation of three possible consequences of non-white immigration into France: “submission,” or collapse without real combat; a “racial civil war resulting in the defeat of French natives and other ethnic Europeans”; or “a victorious civil war with incalculable historical consequences.”

Taylor responds:

This is pure Guillaume Faye. While others fail to grasp the extent of the problem—or even the form or nature of the problem—Faye cuts straight to the fateful choices we face: submission, defeat, or victory. He writes that there is no other choice because a ‘convivial living-together is only possible when it involves populations that are biologically and culturally related. Anything else is but a sham. We do not wish to live with these people. Period.’

Taylor adds a fourth possibility—“voluntary, peaceful separation,” but finds it hard to imagine that happening in France, where, he writes, “an alien population with a ruthless will to power and united by a triumphalist religion threatens the native population and the entire country is at stake.”

In pondering the possibility of “submission,” Taylor writes, “A similarly contemptible collapse is likewise possible in my own country. If our people awaken and build for themselves a future as glorious as our past, it will be thanks to the efforts of brilliant, tireless men such as Guillaume Faye.”

In Faye’s introduction, he wrote that he hoped that “an unpredictable spark may yet cause our natives (meaning THE WHITES—let us state the facts as they are)” to “organize themselves and ultimately launch a counteroffensive.”

Faye’s overt racism caused a split between him and another “spiritual father” of the alt-right, Alain de Benoist, according to BuzzFeed’s Lester Feder and Pierre Buet. “I believe in the civil war,” said Faye, “He is against the civil war.” Both de Benoist and Faye have influenced the alt-right and white nationalists in the U.S., and both have appeared at Taylor’s American Renaissance conferences. As RWW’s Jared Holt reported, American Renaissance appears to be grooming the next generation of racists, including young white nationalist YouTubers and podcasters, via its conferences and other outreach.

In 2015, Faye addressed the annual “Become Who We Are” conference sponsored by the National Policy Institute, led by white nationalist Richard Spencer. According to one account of Faye’s speech, he said three things are destroying the white race: immigration, abortion, and homosexuality.

Taylor is one of the people to whom Faye dedicated “Ethnic Apocalypse,” as is Sam Dickson, a former Klan attorney. In his foreword, Taylor says he is honored to have the book dedicated to him, adding, “I also rejoice in his having jointly dedicated the book to my comrade Sam Dickson,” who Taylor writes “has faithfully and courageously fought the forces that would transform the West.”

During the 2016 presidential race, Taylor recorded a robocall backing Trump before the Iowa caucuses and told a fellow white nationalist radio host that he was “hugely encouraged” by the growth of white nationalism. “The most visible manifestation of this is the support for Donald Trump,” Taylor added. “Donald Trump is an opportunity for ordinary Americans to say they are fed up. And one of the big things they’re fed up about is the racial changes going on in the United States and they think Donald Trump might actually do something about it.”

In May 2016, Taylor predicted that if Trump were elected he would hire people “at all sorts of levels in his administration” who “think the way we do.” At the time Taylor said Trump was saying the kind of things he’d been saying for years, but couldn’t be ignored the way the media ignores Taylor:

And when people start thinking in those terms, Well, wait a minute, are Muslims really of any use to the United States? Then the next step, of course, is to say, Well, are there any other groups that are of no use to the United States? What do, oh, Guatemalans, for example, bring to our country? What do Somalis bring to our country? What do Haitians bring to America? Do we really need 30,000,000 Mexicans living in this country? When you start thinking in terms of group differences, then the camel’s nose is under the tent. That opens the door to all kinds, all kinds of anti-orthodox, subversive thinking. And so Donald Trump has played a huge role in breaking down the gates of orthodoxy and making it possible to raise these questions in a way that they’ve never been raised, at a level at which they’ve never been raised ever before.

When you consider the administration’s actions and Trump’s own words, it’s hard not to think that Taylor had a point about the president.

During his sermon yesterday, right-wing pastor and radio host E.W. Jackson ranted that the rainbow flag is “an accursed thing” and declared that U.S. embassies that are flying them in honor of Pride Month are shaking their fists in God’s face.

Jackson praised the Trump administration for denying requests from embassies to fly a rainbow flag during Pride Month and blasted embassies that have reportedly flown them nonetheless.

“Most people don’t know that these State Department folks are defying the president of the United States and flying the rainbow flag,” Jackson told his congregation. “That’s an accursed thing. The rainbow was given to us by God as a sign that he would not destroy the earth by water again, and you’re going to appropriate that as pride in homosexuality? Are you kidding me?

Dave Daubenmire #fundie #wingnut rightwingwatch.org

Radical right-wing activist Dave Daubenmire said on his “Pass The Salt” program this morning that he and a few dozen right-wing activists descended on Chappaqua, New York, over Memorial Day weekend to demand the arrest of Hillary Clinton because they love her and therefore want her sent to prison where she will “cry out to Christ” and finally develop a genuine relationship with Jesus.

“I want Hillary saved,” he said. “You think Hillary is going to get saved sitting in Chappaqua? … Were you saved in good times or bad times? If you really love Hillary, then you ought to be praying that she comes under judgment now so that she escapes judgment later.”

“I want Hillary Clinton saved, but I’m not going to go to her house and read the Bible out loud to her,” Daubenmire said later in the broadcast. “I want her perp-walked. I want her to go to jail and everything she has to be taken from her and then cry out to Christ. That’s what I want for Hillary Clinton. Why does that seem harsh and unloving? She has to be taught to fear God. She’s not going to come to Jesus unless she fears God.”

Radical right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein posted a video last night in which he said that he is praying to God that Attorney General William Barr will teach “scumbags” like Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Andrew McCabe a lesson by putting them to death for actions he baselessly alleges to be treason.

In response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s remarks on the findings of his investigation, right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein said that he hopes President Trump is sharpening up the guillotines to be used to put Mueller and other “deep state” actors to death for committing treason.

In the video posted Wednesday, Bernstein fumed that Mueller is “a slimy, sleazy, dirty, scummy cop” who had probably been paid by the Democrats to deliver his statement to give them justification for impeaching Trump.

“How much were you paid to do that press conference?” Bernstein asked. “William Barr, you need to investigate this press conference and the origins of it and who ordered it and who made it and if there was any type of payment given.”

Jesse Lee Peterson #sexist rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing commentator Jesse Lee Peterson reacted to the news that a lesbian had been elected as mayor of Chicago by blaming what he views as an unfortunate outcome on the fact that women are being allowed to vote without men instructing them how to do so properly.

Peterson, who has long insisted that “one of the greatest mistakes that America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote,” complained on his radio program yesterday that elected offices are being filled with gays and Muslims “because of the women’s vote.”

“I am blown away how there are people in our country who have no shame about being wrong now and that wrong is being accepted as right,” Peterson griped. “You have mayors [who are] lesbians—I think we got more than one in the country—and we have homosexuals, and men and women who are living together without being married, and Muslims and all the wrong kinds of people running our country. It’s like they’re becoming first class citizens while Christians, the men and women of God, are becoming second class citizens.”

“The reason all of this is happening,” he added, “is become of the women’s vote. There are more women voting … and they are voting for the wrong things, folks, the wrong people, the wrong emotional reasons. And the reason they’re doing it is because they don’t have men to say, ‘No, don’t vote for that person, that’s wrong, and here’s why it’s wrong.’ They don’t have men leading the way and then women have convinced the men to vote for the homosexuals and other people.”

E.W. Jackson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing pastor and radio host E.W. Jackson spent most of his “The Awakening” program today ranting and railing against Islam. At one point, Jackson trotted out the favorite Religious Right talking point that Islam is not even a religion but is rather a totalitarian ideology that is entirely incompatible with our laws and our Constitution.

Jackson insisted that, by contrast, Christians “don’t have any difficulty adhering to the laws of the land” … and then proceeded to undermine his entire argument.

“Christians put the law of God above the law of man,” Jackson admitted, insisting that this position could never be a source of conflict because “proper laws are always consistent with God’s law.”

“Our whole legal system is rooted and grounded in Judeo-Christian law,” he said. “Because our laws and mores are rooted and grounded in Christian principles, we don’t have any difficulty, most of the time, adhering to the laws of the land.”

Jackson then managed to completely undercut his own argument as he began to rail against the Supreme Court for refusing to hear a case involving the owner of a bed-and-breakfast who is being sued for refusing, for religious reasons, to rent a room to a lesbian couple.

“Can I just be perfectly blunt?” Jackson said. “Why in the world should Christians who have spent their time, their energy, their money, their prayers to buy a little bitty bed-and-breakfast with three rooms for guests be forced by the law to have two old, big strapping men go up in one of their rooms and have sex? Now that’s disgusting! Or two women? In a place that they probably prayed over and dedicated to God and said, ‘God use this place for your glory, use it bless people and to encourage people and to comfort people and to help people.’ And they put their time, their energy, their money into it and then you’ve got the law come along and say, ‘Yeah, you’ve got to let two homosexuals go into one of those rooms and do whatever they do.'”

“Why should that be forced upon two people, or on anybody, who spent their time, their energy, their money, and their prayers, and their tears to build something that they wanted to be God-glorifying and then have somebody tell them, ‘Well, we don’t care what you built it for, we’re going to force you to have people come in here who will simply defile the place?'” Jackson fumed. “And I said it and I mean it! This will be a defilement of the place that [was] blessed and dedicated to God. And no, it’s not happening!”

Jackson said that “homosexuals basically are trying to intimidate and cow Christians into bowing to their will” before declaring that Christians will give up their lives rather than adhere to any earthly law that violates the laws of God.

“We’re not bowing,” he vowed. “They can do whatever they want to do. We’re not bowing … We Christians are never going to bow down. Never! You’ll have to kill us, but we won’t bow.”

“I’ll go on record saying it,” Bernstein proclaimed. “I want to make it harder for people to vote. That’s right, I said it, I’m proud of saying it.”

“I want to raise the voting age to 30. How’s that? Maybe even 35,” he continued. “I want to eliminate early voting, 100 percent.

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Earlier this year, right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin warned that if the long-promised wave of mass arrests of elite satanic pedophiles promised by QAnon doesn’t happen by the end of 2019, then she was going to “have to bow out” of the movement and focus her attention elsewhere.

Crokin has long been one of the most ardent proponents of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which asserts that the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is really just a cover for a plan orchestrated by President Trump to take down a global satanic pedophile ring involving countless political, economic, and cultural leaders. A central component of this conspiracy theory is that once everything is in place, Trump will unleash a wave of mass arrests in which high-profile figures like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and others will be rounded up, tried by military tribunals, and executed.

The fact that no arrests appear to be happening has been a source of constant tension within the QAnon movement, but Crokin released a video last night declaring that all doubts about them can finally be put to rest, thanks to the recent college admissions bribery scandal.

Last week, federal prosecutors charged dozens of people with being part of a massive scheme in which hefty bribes were doled out to illegally obtain admission to top colleges and universities for the children of wealthy and high-profile individuals. Among those charged were actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman,which Crokin sees as proof that a wave of mass arrests will soon sweep the nation.

“The most important thing people need to understand about this story is … the mass arrests are happening!” Crokin excitedly proclaimed. “These celebrities were sealed indictments, people. The mass arrests are officially happening. We are seeing the beginning of the sealed indictments being unsealed. We’re seeing the beginning of evil members of the frickin’ cabal being exposed, and this is just the beginning. This is just the absolute tip of the iceberg. So no more comments please on any of my social media or on YouTube saying, ‘When are the mass arrests going to happen?’ or, ‘I’m doubting you, Liz, that they’re going to happen.’ They’re happening! They’re happening! They are happening right now!”

Crokin went on to say that arrests for white collar crimes such as the college bribery scandal are part of a plan to “prepare the public” for the much more horrifying revelations that are to come.

“Wait until they hear about how people in Hollywood eat babies,” she said. “This is the least of the crimes that these people are guilty of … This is nothing compared to what these people are capable of and what they’re doing, particularly to children. I believe the white hats are trying to slowly prepare the public for what is about to come, so they are starting off small with white collar crimes and we’re slowly going to get up to the bigger crimes, which involve treason, trafficking kids, ritualistic satanic abuse, and all those horrific things.”

Bryan Fischer #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Bryan Fischer has used his perch at the American Family Association to virulently attack Islam and its adherents for years, so it was only natural that he used his “Focal Point” radio program today to weigh in on the massacre of dozens of Muslim worshippers in New Zealand, saying that while he doesn’t support the manner in which it was carried out, he does sympathize with the underlying objective.

“I hate Islam,” he said. “I hate Islam because it is a danger to everything that is important to me: My faith, my country, my liberty, Christianity, civil rights. Everything that you and I treasure is threatened by Islam.”

Fischer said that ruthlessly murdering Muslims “is the wrong way to go about it,” but added that the shooter was “correct only in that Islam is something that does need to be stopped.”

Fischer declared that those responsible for the attack should be tried and publicly executed, but noted that “vigilante justice” like this is almost inevitable because governments are not taking adequate steps to eliminate the threat posed by Islam.

“One of the things that happens to guys like this is, if they’ve got some loose wiring to begin with and they see that their government is not doing what is necessary to protect them—whether it is from illegal aliens, whether it is from jihadis, whether it’s from vengeful Muslims—if they see that their government is not doing their jobs to promote justice, to carry out justice, to protect national security, then they’re going to start thinking, ‘Well, I can’t count on the government to do it, so I’m going to have to take things into my own hands,'” Fischer said. “That’s where you get vigilante justice … and, unfortunately, I think we saw a case of that today in New Zealand.”

(Hey, it's a trifecta!)

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles reacted angrily on his “TruNews” program last night to the news that the Trump administration is “launching a global campaign to end the criminalization of homosexuality in dozens of nations where it’s still illegal to be gay,” by calling out the evangelical advisers who surround the president for refusing to speak out against this plan. Ultimately, he blamed the entire thing on the Jews.

Saying that he is “very, very upset” with Trump, Wiles called out Trump’s evangelical advisers and challenged them to stand up in opposition to this effort, predicting that they won’t do so because all they really care about is protecting Israel.

“Now, what is the evangelical base going to do?” Wiles asked. “He’s got an evangelical board of advisers … What are you going to do about it? You’ve got access to the White House, are you going to speak out?”

“I dare you,” he continued. “I challenge you. Or will you be silent? What are you going to do, because you silence is complicity. Are you afraid to tell President Trump the truth? Will you tell him that you will withhold political support if he goes down this route? Because I think the Christians should tell him, ‘You go this way, we’re out, you’re on your own.'”

Warning Trump that “God cannot bless your administration” because it is “promoting something that God says is an abomination,” Wiles, who is deeply anti-Semitic and dedicates many of his programs to railing against Israel and the Jews, predicted that Trump’s evangelical advisers would hold their tongues on this issue because Israel is their top priority.

“The real reason they won’t say anything is because the real agenda is Israel,” he said. “They’re not going to jeopardize their standing with the White House to get things done for Israel. That’s the real reason.”

Wiles went on to declare that “the Jews” are ultimately behind this push and the Trump administration is simply doing what it is told because the Jews “control Washington” and have “control of the Trump administration.”

“Donald Trump is owned by the Jews,” he said. “That’s the truth.”

Jesse Lee Peterson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing commentator Jesse Lee Peterson kicked off his radio program this morning by heaping praise on President Trump for his State of the Union Address last night, while launching personal attacks on Democratic leaders and declaring that anyone who votes for a Democrat after last night “hates God” and “loves Satan.”

Peterson said that Trump’s speech reminded him of the good old days “when men where in charge” and they “didn’t take any crap.”

“Do you see the difference when a man is leading as opposed to when a woman is leading?” he asked. “Especially a liberal woman. It was the difference between night and day.”

After declaring that Democrats “looked like defeated brats” who “demonstrated that they do not love America,” Peterson attacked Rep. John Lewis as a “bug-eyed, fat black guy” who “looked like a dirty, old black trash man.” Later, Peterson turned his attention to Stacey Abrams, who delivered the Democratic response, blasting her for having supposedly “forgotten to straighten her hair.”

“She had this little nasty-looking nappy hair on her head like she just got out of the bathtub from washing her hair and didn’t straighten it,” Peterson carped. “Remember when black women used to … know not to go outside looking like that? Stacey Abrams didn’t straighten her hair. She left it nappy.”

“And she’s getting fat,” he added. “She’s just fat from the head to the toe.”

“You could clearly see the difference between logical men and illogical women last night,” Peterson concluded. “The Democratic Party is the party of death. They’re the party of death, not of life. They want to kill God, they want to kill men, they want to kill women who are of God, they want to kill unborn children, and they want to kill children who are living already, that’s why they corrupt their minds and their souls in the public schools. They don’t want them to live, they want them to die and that was apparent last night. And if you didn’t see it, may God have mercy on your soul. You are truly blind. Anyone who votes for the Democratic Party now, after last night, woe unto you. Really. Because you are deliberately voting for evil and your heart, your soul, hates God and hates good and it loves Satan, it loves evil.”

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Last week, right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on her YouTube channel in which she suggested that she was beginning to lose faith in the QAnon conspiracy theory and its associated movement, declaring that if the long-promised wave of mass arrests of elite satanic pedophiles doesn’t happen by the end of 2019, then she is going to “have to bow out” of the movement and focus her attention elsewhere.

As we noted, Crokin has long been one of the most ardent proponents of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which asserts that the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is really just a cover for a plan orchestrated by President Trump to take down a global satanic pedophile ring involving countless political, economic, and cultural leaders. A central component of this conspiracy theory is that once everything is in place, Trump will unleash a wave of mass arrests in which high-profile figures like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and others will be rounded up, tried by military tribunals, and executed.

But as the weeks and months have passed without any such arrests taking place, Crokin has begun to lose faith in QAnon, which appears to be giving rise to a new and worrisome development as she is now suggesting that fed up QAnon followers may begin to take matters into their own hands.

Appearing recently on “The SGT Report,” Crokin all but begged Q to produce just one arrest “so that we know we’re moving in the right direction,” warning that if arrests don’t start to happen soon, QAnon followers might resort to vigilante justice.

“[The arrests] need to happen this year,” she said. “If they don’t happen before 2020, President Trump is going to lose support. He promised that he would take Hillary Clinton down. He said that he would assign a special prosecutor to investigate her crimes. We haven’t forgotten. We want to see justice for real criminals. We know these people are torturing children, they’re raping kids, they’re ripping their body parts apart, they’re selling the organs on the black market. They are doing to most horrific crimes against humanity on children and it’s unacceptable and President Trump needs to make sure that his DOJ goes after the real criminals.”

“They need to do it before 2020 because I believe if he doesn’t, then he’s going to lose support and people are just going to get fed up and, honestly, people are going to start taking to the streets,” Crokin warned. “I’m ready now to physically go to John Podesta’s house and drag him out of his house.”

“I’m all for citizen’s arrests at this point,” responded the host of the program.

“So am I,” said Crokin. “This has dragged on for too long. We need to start seeing arrests of the real criminals and I just pray to God that they happen really soon because if they don’t, I think that so much is coming out about the sex trafficking, what they do to kids, [that] we are going to start seeing vigilante justice and that could get really dangerous and that could cause a civil war in this country.”

Gone Too Far #fundie rightwingwatch.org


Imagine an anti-LGBTQ gathering that included remarks by a trio of aggressively anti-gay activists—Scott Lively, Peter LaBarbera, and Brian Camenker—and now imagine that none of them was the most ridiculous, obnoxious or extreme speaker. Such was the scene at the National Press Club on Tuesday afternoon, where a new group calling itself “Gone Too Far” introduced itself with tirades against the LGBTQ equality movement, the proposed federal Equality Act, and members of the Congressional Black Caucus who support it.

Three right-wing African American pastors—Randy Short, Stephen Broden and E.W. Jackson—are part of the group’s organizing committee, as are Lively, LaBarbera, and Camenker. (Notably, the latter three were all part of a group of Religious Right leaders who defended Rep. Steve King when he was punished by his House colleagues for his most recent racist comments.) Additional organizing committee members include Arthur Shaper, head of the California branch of Camenker’s MassResistance; Paul Blair, president of Reclaiming America for Christ; and his Oklahoma clergy colleague, Dan Fisher. Blair is also a promoter of “nullification”–the notion that the individual states hold the power to nullify federal laws.

The press conference began with the blowing of a shofar, prayer, the singing of “Jesus Loves the Little Children” and “God Bless America,” and the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. When Short took to the podium, things went downhill quickly.

“Today is a day that we declare war on those who are ungodly, unbiblical and wicked,” said Short, who is from the D.C. area and who is listed as “coordinator” of Gone Too Far on a press release. “We are sick and tired of all the deviants, all the eugenicists, all the homophiles coming out of the closet to destroy this country.” Short was particularly outraged that members of the Congressional Black Caucus, with the exception of Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, have endorsed the Equality Act, which Short called “the pedophile bill.”

“We have a group that nobody wants that has decided like a parasite to hook itself to the history and legacy of the African American people,” he said.

Short, whose Facebook page denounces “CBC QOONS,” called members of the Black Caucus “a group of infamous fakers, haters, takers, liars, excuse-makers” who “have auctioned the future of our black babies for the sodomite agenda and for the pedophile or the minor-attracted person agenda.”

“I want to say to you,” said Short, “that the Congressional Black Caucus is the equivalent of a terminal venereal disease on the body of black people in this country, and they cannot take a stand against our people being wiped out.”

Short went after iconic CBC members by name. He declared Maxine Waters to be a “fraud,” adding there is “nothing black about her—her wig is from Korea.” Of civil rights hero John Lewis, he asked, “What closet are you in, boy? They didn’t beat you enough in the 60s for you to turn on God, turn on your people, turn on morality, turn on the black woman, turn on the black unborn, turn on the black children.” Short called on them all to resign.

Saying, “We don’t need a Hitler; we’ve got LGBTQ,” Short suggested that the equality movement is a conspiracy to spread diseases to the black community and “wipe out an unwanted population of people through immorality.”

Those people who should know better, who call themselves minority leaders—who know that bowel movement and the blood shed at Edmund Pettus Bridge don’t come together. We’ve got another epidemic brought to us that’s covered up—shingles. Folks sick because folks eat bowel movement in the sexual acts they have, and now they’re injecting children, giving them these diseases, calling it vaccines, because Big Pharma makes so much money off of the new odd diseases that come out of the conduct of these folks.

Short had an odd question for the audience: “Can anyone prove that all the slaveholders were heterosexual?” And he had an answer:

You can’t scientifically prove that. So didn’t some of these gays, even though they didn’t procreate way back then, didn’t they own our people? Who was raping the boys on the plantations? What is ‘breaking the buck?’ Why don’t we know that on the plantations, black men were raped by gay white men to break them down, and now we’re unified with them, and gay is the new black? Have you lost your mind?

One of the few people Short had any kind words for was Anita Bryant, who he said was right for her anti-gay-rights crusade in the 1970s. “God bless Anita Bryant,” he said.

A cursory online search turns up other examples of Short’s unusual worldview, including a 2014 statement attributed to him that asserted, “I will always love Ayatollah Khomeini.”

Next up was Broden of Dallas, Texas, who said during his failed 2010 congressional campaign that the violent overthrow of the government should be an option “on the table” for dealing with government tyranny.

Like Short, Broden made much of language in the Equality Act, saying that the purpose of the bill is “to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, sexual orientation—and for other purposes.” Broden implied that “other purposes” opens the door to the potential protection of pedophilia and bestiality by civil rights laws.

Broden said the “sinister” Equality Act would encroach on religious liberty and free speech, and would essentially transfer protections of the civil rights struggle to “wealthy white men.” Said Broden. “It is the gateway to a moral depravity that will ultimately destroy this nation.”

Following Broden to the microphone was Dan Fisher, who promoted Gone Too Far’s “Proclamation for Morality.” The proclamation spends a lot of time talking about sexually transmitted diseases, anal sex, pedophilia and, of course, the horrors of Drag Queen Story Hours.

“All truth is God’s truth,” Fisher said. “And his truth applies to all people at all times and in all places. There is not one truth for men and another for women, one for blacks and another for whites, one for heterosexuals, and another for those identifying as LGBTQ.” God alone, he said, has the authority to define and regulate sexuality and marriage.

“If Congress attempts to label as a civil right that which has been understood by generations as immoral, it would not only be reversing centuries of western Judeo-Christian thought, but would be in essence, as Pastor Broden said, actually rendering historic, orthodox Christianity illegal,” Fisher said.

Next up was Stephen Black, who runs a ministry for “sexually and relationally broken people.” Black said God saved him from his gay-identified “years in darkness” and he denounced efforts by LGBTQ activists to ban conversion therapy for minors. He said the term “gay Christian” is “heresy.”

Scott Lively, the notorious globe-trotting anti-LGBTQ activist and author of “The Pink Swastika,” followed Black at the mic. (Lively ran unsuccessfully last year for the Republican nomination for governor of Massachusetts.) At the Gone Too Far event, he took special aim at the Equality Act, anti-discrimination legislation that was introduced in the 115th Congress. The Equality Act, Lively said, is not really about equality but about “LGBT supremacy.”

Lively denounced former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, author of landmark gay-rights rulings, as “the worst enemy of the family in the history of the Supreme Court.” Lively charged that the Equality Act was meant to accomplish what he said was the LGBT movement’s goal of abolishing laws governing the age of sexual consent, as well as the legalization of prostitution and polygamy. He also said that that the transgender movement is really about promoting the “pedophilia agenda.”

After Lively came Peter LaBarbera, famed for his fondness for chronicling leather/fetish events in lurid detail as head of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. Lively became part of Camenker’s growing MassResistance organization last year, and at this week’s press conference, he promoted the group’s tome on “the health hazards of homosexuality.”

LaBarbera said the LGBTQ movement is an anti-God, anti-normal, anti-truth, anti-moral, anti-freedom “revolution” being led by people who are “desperate to rationalize their sin.” He said gay rights activists are “accelerating their war on the church because the church, the Christian church mainly, is the last bastion of opposition to this revolution.”

Camenker wasn’t at the speaker’s table but was given a minute at the end of the press conference to say how “thrilled” he is to be part of the Gone Too Far effort. At an anti-gay gathering in 2015, Camenker said that God has “very brutal” rules for dealing with people who want to tear down the moral structure of society: they “must be destroyed.”

During a Q&A period, Broden said the Equality Act is part of a “dark, evil sinister plot to destroy America.” Tapping another right-wing conspiracy theory, Broden said the Act’s origins go back to the development of “Cultural Marxism” in Germany in the 1920s. Lively also spoke about Cultural Marxism, which he said was another name for secular humanism, which he said was a religion that elite establishment Republicans and Democrats share.

Asked by a conservative activists about Trump, who waved a rainbow flag on the campaign trail, Lively defended the president, saying he cuts Trump some slack for not doing more because he “still does not have control of the government” due to deep state activists who have their claws and tentacles dug into the Defense and State departments. “Donald Trump is God’s man in the White House,” Lively declared.

Gone Too Far is promoting “God’s Voice,” a conference being held in Oklahoma City on February 22 and 23 that is described as “a biblical response to the queering of the church.” LaBarbera and Black are among the scheduled speakers, along with radio host Janet Mefferd.

Rick Wiles #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

On yesterday’s edition of his “TruNews” program, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles declared that the special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia and Russian interference in the 2016 election is really part of a plan by England to destabilize America in order to undo the American Revolution and reabsorb the nation into the British monarchy.

“This may be entirely a U.K. intelligence-driven operation against Donald Trump,” Wiles said. “Why would Great Britain, why would the monarchy, why would the establishment of Great Britain want to destabilize the Trump administration? This is what it appears to be, because all of the tentacles of this Russia-gate story, it all goes back to Great Britain.”

“This country has been deliberately weakened over the last 70 years,” he continued. “Really since the 60s. Culturally, the invasion started in the 60s with British rock music coming into this country. Did we forget about that? The rebellion? The spirit of rebellion, drugs, it came from Great Britain.”

Anti-choice activist Lila Rose says “it”—presumably the [women's] march—“says that I have to kill a child, and my right to have this right to kill a child in order to be empowered.” It should go without saying that no march leaders or advocates for reproductive choice say anything like that.

Speaking of reproductive rights, here comes a doozy: “Because I’m a proud pro-life birth mother who believes that reproductive rights means waiting to have sex again until I’m married.” That’s not exactly the generally accepted definition of that term.

There are certain things that will be revealed and exposed and people will understand what’s going on.”

“This was a huge sting operation across the nation with the election to see where the voter fraud was,” he added. “Now they’re going to use this for voter I.D. When we get voter I.D., forget it, the Democrats are done. This is the implosion of the Democratic Party. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I don’t think you will see a Democrat in the White House again for a long time, if ever again, because people have had it, they are fed up with this mess.”

Jesse Lee Patterson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

(Keep in mind, Jesse Lee Patterson is black.)

Right-wing commentator Jesse Lee Peterson told radio listeners this morning that black people use to be “moral people” before the civil rights era, but have become “immoral” since gaining more equal treatment in American society.

On his radio show this morning, a caller asked Peterson to elaborate on earlier claims he made about interracial children, when he asserted that having children with white people would “make blacks better.” The caller asked Peterson how mixed children “back in the slavery days” bettered themselves, to which Peterson answered that those children were able to achieve success because “they were not told they were victims, they were not told that white people were trying to hold them back.”

“Black people were moral people back then and they are immoral now. Since the civil rights movement, they have been relying on the government, they feel like victims, they blame everybody else for their weakness,” Peterson said.

Peterson is occasionally drafted to be a pundit in mainstream right-wing media to criticize the black community and to give cover for Republican scandals involving racism.

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

On Sunday, right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on her YouTube channel in which she declared that former President George H.W. Bush had been “executed,” which she believes is a signal that the long-predicted mass arrests would soon begin.

Crokin, like many other far right-wing activists, is a devoted believer in the so-called “QAnon” conspiracy theory, which posits that a high-ranking official within the Trump administration has been dropping coded hints on the 8Chan forum board about a secret operation to take down a global satanic pedophile ring involving countless political, economic, and cultural leaders.

The proof of this effort, Crokin and others believe, will come in the form of a wave of mass arrests in which hundreds of highly influential figures will be rounded up, subjected to military tribunals, and ultimately executed.

On Sunday, Crokin reported that a key moment in this unfolding plan would occur when U.S. Attorney John Huber, who has been “tasked with looking into Republican claims of FBI misconduct and whether more should have been done to investigate Hillary Clinton’s ties to a Russian nuclear agency,” testified before a House committee this week.

“The hearing that goes down this week,” she said, “there is a very good chance that the crimes against children will be exposed and the floodgates will break open. I don’t know for sure. I’m praying that will be the case, but whether it happens on [December] 5th or in a week or three weeks, it’s happening.”

“It’s no coincidence that George [Bush] Sr. died,” she added. “By the way, he didn’t die, he was executed. He was executed. So the tide has turned, you guys. The Q movement is unstoppable.”

“The writing is on the wall,” Crokin proclaimed. “Nothing is going to stop these arrests from happening. Nothing. And this is going to be a big week. The world is about to change.”

Wayne Allyn Root #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

“Nobody comes out to see the Clintons, the Obamas, the Bidens, or any Democratic candidate, yet you’re convincing me that you beat us and won all those House seats fair and square?” Root asked in disbelief. “At the same time that’s happening, anti-Trump Murphy Brown’s new series was cancelled after one season … [Every time] they put something liberal on the air like Murphy Brown that just bashes Trump from the beginning of the show to the end of the show, nobody tunes in to watch.”

“You’re telling me it’s a Democratic nation?” he continued. “You’re telling me it’s a liberal nation? You’re telling me liberals are winning elections when nobody shows up at their events and nobody watches their TV shows?”

“It makes no sense to me at all,” Root added. “I believe that it was a huge outpouring of love, and support, and loyalty to Donald Trump and it was repelled by voter fraud. It wasn’t repelled by liberals coming out to vote, it was repelled by conniving, fraudulent conspiracy. It was repelled by voter fraud all over this country.”

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles is convinced that the earth is about to experience a new ice age that will last for hundreds of years and wipe out a large percentage of humanity … but, on the upside, it will also destroy Planned Parenthood.

“You can laugh, mock, ridicule all you want, but you’re going to end up freezing to death,” Wiles said on his “TruNews” program last night. “This thing is here, it’s arriving and it’s arriving quickly and it’s arriving this year. We’re going to see the onset of this ice age in the winter of 2018.”

After co-host Doc Burkhart explained that this coming ice age is “the result of man’s sin,” Wiles took solace in the idea that it will at least also “freeze out a lot of sin.”

“It will freeze out Planned Parenthood,” he said. “There won’t be very many abortions in America 15 or 20 years from now. There is not going to be a lot of pornography consumption. There is not going to be a lot of drug use. It’s going to freeze out a lot of sin, that’s for sure because a lot of people are going to be dead. That is just a fact. An ice age wipes out a substantial portion of the population.”

In the recent midterm elections, Democrats Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota became the first Muslim women elected to Congress, but Guandolo is declaring that as “sharia-adherent women,” they are unable to uphold the U.S. Constitution and therefore must not be allowed to take office.

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Right-wing “journalist” and fringe conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on YouTube yesterday in which she claimed that Democrats are desperately trying to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court because they know that if he is confirmed, that will be the final step before the mass arrests and military tribunals begin.

“They know what’s coming,” Crokin said. “The deep state, the globalists, the cabal members, they know they’re screwed, they know what crimes they have committed.”

Echoing the claims of so-called “firefighter prophet” Mark Taylor, Crokin asserted that the late Sen. John McCain did not die of brain cancer, but was actually executed by a secret military tribunal for treason.

“John McCain never had cancer,” she declared, incredulously. “He didn’t die a natural death or death from brain cancer. The man was tried in a private military tribunal and he was killed for treason. And from what I am hearing and from what I am researching, he sang; he sang like a canary and gave up the goods on other people.”

“It was so obvious he didn’t have brain cancer,” she said. “Give me a break.”

Crokin claimed that members of the deep state know that Trump is coming after them and are now working to ensure that when they are arrested and prosecuted, they will be tried in court, where they might have a chance of getting off on a technicality, instead of before a military tribunal and that is why they are going all out to defeat Kavanaugh.

“The military isn’t going to let any of these scumbags who were involved in raping children and trafficking children get off on a frickin technicality,” she said. “They’re screwed. They know it. And the bottom line with Judge Kavanaugh is, once he is confirmed, it’s over. He is the final nail in the coffin that needs to happen to lead us into mass arrests and then the military tribunals.”

Kevin Swanson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Radical anti-LGBTQ radio host and pastor Kevin Swanson said on his “Generations” radio program today that the wildfires that are ravaging California are God’s punishment on the state for its years of attempting to “legitimize the sin of homosexuality.”

“If you look at the history of California, they have been at the forefront of this,” he said. “The first gay pride march occurred in San Francisco in 1970 and then San Francisco legitimized homosexuality in 1972. In 1982, Laguna Beach, California, elected the first openly homosexual mayor in United States history. In 1999, California adopted a domestic partnership law; I believe it was one of the first in the nation to do that.”

“In 2005,” Swanson continued, “California state legislators became the first in the nation to pass a same-sex marriage law … In 2008, the California Supreme Court then struck down Prop 22 in regard to marriage cases, and Prop 8 also was struck down later on that year, I believe. In 2011, California became the first state to mandate homosexual indoctrination for K-8 students and then, in 2012, California became the first state to sign a ban on therapy that was attempting to convert homosexuals into non-homosexuals. And then, in 2017, the California state schools implemented the homosexual indoctrination program … and that was the kickoff for the biggest fires that California has ever seen in its history.”

“So God is burning down California in 2017 and 2018 after about 25 years of leading the pack to legitimize the sin of homosexuality in that state,” Swanson declared.

Liz Crokin #conspiracy rightwingwatch.org

Last weekend, right-wing “journalist” and fringe conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin did an interview with online psychic and YouTube host Jenny Moonstone in which she laid out her theory that John F. Kennedy Jr. faked his own death in 1999 and is now behind the QAnon account.

QAnon is an anonymous figure at the center of a right-wing conspiracy theory known as “The Storm” that alleges that high-ranking members of the Trump administration have been using the 8Chan forum board to drop hints revealing that Robert Muller’s special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is really cover for a secret operation to take down a global network of satanic pedophile cannibals. Proponents of this conspiracy theory have increasingly been making their presence known at Trump rallies.

In a video posted by Moonstone on Sunday, Crokin explained her theory that JFK Jr. has been running the QAnon account all along, insisting that any mockery she receives, or attacks she endures, for promoting her absurd ideas is proof that she is right.

Crokin asserted that when she first heard the theory of JFK Jr. being behind the QAnon account, “it immediately resonated with me, I got goosebumps everywhere. I’m a very intuitive person and usually when that happens, that’s confirmation that there is truth to it.”

“Q at one point said, ‘You’re not going to believe who you are talking to here,'” Crokin said. “When Q wrote that, I thought it’s going to be someone that’s so crazy that even people that are woke and know what’s going on are going to be like, ‘Oh my lord, this is insane’ … John F. Kennedy Jr., that would be shocking because we all think he’s dead.”

Crokin went on to assert that, as a writer, she has an amazing ability to understand handwriting and uncover the truth simply by examining the things that people write, which leads her to believe that JFK Jr. is, in fact, the main force behind QAnon.

“The one thing that always struck me about Q’s posts is the passion for John F. Kennedy Sr.,” she said. “When I say passion, I’m talking the passion for JFK Sr. is so intense, I don’t see how this passion could come from anyone that A) didn’t know him and B) didn’t love him. So you have to think about, well, who could that be? Well, if John F. Kennedy Jr. was still alive, that would make perfect sense.”

“The way that Q talks about JFK Sr. in the posts, it is with such love and passion, it makes me think that it is someone that is close to him,” Crokin added. “If JFK Jr. faked his death and was alive, it would make sense that he was Q.”
