End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles knows for a fact that President Obama is spying on him, and now he thinks the “Muslim jihadist in the White House” wants him and others arrested for violating hate speech laws, which don’t exist.
The “Trunews” host warned on Friday that if anyone, such as himself, discusses the beheading of an Oklahoma woman in a way that is perceived as Islamophobic, the FBI could go after them: “Why is the FBI involved in a local murder in Oklahoma? I’ll tell you why. If we speak out against Islam, we are going to be targeted by the feds for religious hate speech. The feds have already ruled today that the beheading was workplace violence, so if anybody says it was Muslim terrorism, that person will be at risk for prosecution of stirring up religious strife. Remember, we have a Muslim jihadist in the White House.”

This business owner, Jan Morgan, has made her business a “Muslim free zone.” Her reasonings are listed on her website and it’s the most sickly Islamophobic bullshit I’ve read. But what’s even worse is the comments from so many people supporting her and spewing equally horrible comments.
And this is just a small portion from the comments sections. Practically every single comment I saw was saying the same thing. Please tell me again how America is so tolerant? It’s honestly scary how people are saying this discrimination “needs to be done,” or that “desperate times call for desperate measures.” That type of talk rings back into some dark times in history and it’s fucking terrifying.
Last week, after being fired from his job at a food processing plant in Oklahoma, a man named Alton Nolen attacked and beheaded a former coworker. Seizing on reports that Nolen was a convert to Islam who went by the name Jah’Keem Yisrael, Bryan Fischer has now flown into a frenzy that this crime is proof that ISIS is now in the United States.
But it turns out that, according to Fischer, Islam is not solely to blame for this crime as efforts to legalize or decriminalize drugs are also responsible.
You see, Nolen was sentenced to six years in prison on drug charges back in 2011, but was released after less than two. Then, over a year later, he killed a coworker which is why Fischer declared today that he doesn’t want to hear any more “nonsense” about legalizing drugs!
"Everybody wants to legalize drugs, we’ve got to reduce the penalty for drugs, we’re over-criminalizing drugs" Fischer said dismissively. "If he had done his full six years … then Colleen Hufford would still be alive today. So I don’t want to hear any more nonsense about legalizing [or] decriminalizing drugs":
You will not be surprised to learn that, contrary to Fischer’s position, Nolen’s release from prison had nothing to do with efforts to legalize or decriminalize drugs:
He began his six-year sentence for cocaine possession April 26, 2011, records show. Because of plea agreements with prosecutors, he was allowed to serve the three prison sentences at the same time.
He was released on March 22, 2013, records show. Because of credits, he was able to complete all three prison sentences in just two years.
Prison records show Nolen was given credit for time spent in jail before prison, good conduct, a transition program and other reasons. One month, he got 151 days total off his time to do, the records show.

At #VVS14, Rick "Man-on-Dog" Santorum Falsely Suggests That Only Muslims Are Violent [TW: Islamophobia, Religious Bigotry]
Ex-Senator and religious film producer Rick Santorum blasted practitioners of Islam at the Values Voter Summit this past week, contending that the current conflict in the Middle East is a product of an age-old fight between the West and those who see the world in a “fundamentally different” way — namely, Muslims.
During his speech to the assembly on Friday and a subsequent interview with The Daily Beast, Santorum drew a firm line between the Muslim world and the “Western world,” arguing that America’s current conflict with the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) represents “a very big clash [of civilizations].” He then went on to insist on a distinction between Islam and Christianity, implying that Christians have moved beyond the kind of violence exhibited by groups like ISIS.
“Christendom [once] expanded by the sword, that doesn’t happen anymore … you don’t have any Baptist ministers going on jihad,” Santorum, who is Catholic, said. “The Western world has come to terms with religious liberty, freedom of conscience, and that persuasion is the way to spread the faith.”
“[There is] a fundamental foundational problem in Islam of embracing issues of freedom of conscience and religious persecution,” he later added.
Santorum’s comments elicited applause from those at the summit, but appear to ignore recent examples of people who cite Christianity as justification for violence and hate. The Lord’s Resistance Army in Western Africa, which claims to pursue the teachings of Jesus Christ, regularly terrorizes villages and enlists child soldiers to do its bidding. Fighters who claim to be both Christian and Muslim continue to clash in the Central African Republic, where atrocities have been enacted by fighters on both sides. And while there likely aren’t Baptist ministers going on jihad — primarily because jihad is a Muslim concept, albeit one that doesn’t necessarily require to violence — the Westboro Baptist Church has certainly engaged in its own war of words with those who don’t share their views, and currently maintains a website entitled “God Hates Islam.”
Also, while Santorum casts the West as a region that has moved beyond religious persecution, many in the United States still struggle to freely exercise their faith. Religious minorities such as Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, and many other believers throughout the Untied States regularly endure physical beatings and attacks on their houses of worship at the hands of those who disagree with them.
Jesse Lee Peterson responds in WorldNetDaily today to an Oklahoma man’s beheading of a coworker — there are reports that the man had converted to Islam but no evidence at this point that the crime was connected to terrorism — by asking, “Why are blacks so susceptible to being radicalized?”
Peterson’s answer, of course, is single parenthood, “Marxist-influenced” teachers who “encourage their anger toward America by promoting the lie that their country is ‘racist,’” rap music, the Obama administration, and…black pastors who have “co-opted” the Black Church to “promote racism and are helping to keep blacks angry.”
Why are blacks so susceptible to being radicalized?
The poisonous atmosphere starts in the home. The father is the spiritual head and protector of the family. But with more than 70 percent (in some cities 85 percent) of black children born out of wedlock, that spiritual protection is missing in most black homes.
This opens the door for evil to get a foothold. Children grow up angry at their impatient mothers, who resent the missing father and tend to focus their frustration on the male child. These boys go out seeking love and acceptance from the world.
Once the boy enters the public schools, Marxist-influenced teachers encourage their anger toward America by promoting the lie that their country is “racist.” Couple that with profanity-laced rap music that promotes violence and disrespect for authority – it’s a recipe for radicalization.
The church has been a refuge for blacks throughout their history in America. But today black churches have been co-opted by racist preachers.
For example, at the funeral of Michael Brown, the thug who was shot by a Ferguson police officer, Bishop T.D. Jakes and other ministers eulogized Brown as a saint. This lie only encourages the hatred of whites and police among black youth.
Remember Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., Obama’s minister? Wright’s “God D–n America” and radical “social justice” message is actually a widely held point of view among black ministers. I have interviewed more than 500 black minsters on my radio show. Most of them promote racism and are helping to keep blacks angry.
Blacks are also encouraged to remain angry by so-called “leaders” in this administration.
When Attorney General Eric Holder announced he was resigning, my response was “Good riddance to bad rubbish.” Holder, along with Al Sharpton (the White House’s point man on race relations), has inflamed tensions in Ferguson and across America.
Last week during his address to the U.N., Holder’s boss, Obama, apologized to the world for America’s “own racial and ethnic tensions” and evoked the Michael Brown shooting and Ferguson.

ACT! For America's Brigitte Gabriel at #VVS14: "Hundreds Of Millions Of Muslims Are Aspiring Suicide Bombers" [TW: Islamophobia, Hate Speech, Bigotry, Right-Wing Extremism]
How fitting that a conference ostensibly about guarding religious liberty included several speakers who used their time to level attacks against Muslim-Americans, including Brigitte Gabriel of the anti-Muslim group Act! for America.
Gabriel, whose organization focuses on fighting Muslim campus affinity groups and passing dubiously-constitutional laws barring sharia law, claimed in her speech this morning that around 180-300 million Muslims are “radical Islamists who are willing to strap bombs on their bodies and walk into this room and blow us all up to smithereens.”

In the same interview with Sandy Rios today in which he warned of a looming Civil-War-level crisis in the U.S. and reported of the imminent Christian conversion of Israel’s Jews, retired Army general and Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin wondered why “cowardly” American Christians aren’t brave like the terrorists of ISIS.
“Think about this, what if we had Christians that were that committed to what they believe?” he said, after Rios played him a clip of a Vice interview with an ISIS spokesman. “I mean, here’s a guy who stands up and says, ‘I’m willing to die, I’m willing to die for it.’ And what about the Christian church these days? We’ve got Christians that are more cowardly than, I think, at any time in the history of America because they won’t stand up to evil.”
He went on to claim that “much” of the Islamist extremism in the United States “has come across our southern border” or “has been just developed inside by those people that came across our southern border with nefarious intent to destroy us.”
Boykin made the remarks in a live interview at the Values Voter Summit, which is hosted by his employer the Family Research Council.

Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst lost his re-election bid in the GOP primary because he was seen as too liberal, and before that he lost to Ted Cruz in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate.
Well, Dewhurst unleashed several conservative talking points today at the Values Voters Summit, where he followed Cruz by preaching against abortion rights and stirring up opposition to immigration reform. Dewhurst said President Obama “literally opened up the red carpet” for a “tsunami of unaccompanied children” with an immigration law signed in 2008, the year before Obama became president.
“If we don’t stop the bad guys at the border, they’re going to be in your hometown tomorrow,” he said.
He later claimed that prayer rugs found in Texas are proof that ISIS members may be crossing the southern border to “mobilize terrorist Islam against the United States.” We wonder if Dewhurst is referring to the Breitbart News story which confused a prayer rug with an Adidas jersey.

While addressing the Values Voter Summit for the last time as a member of Congress, Michele Bachmann blasted President Obama for not realizing that America is engaged in “spiritual warfare” against Islam in our fight against ISIS and other terrorist organizations.
"This is spiritual warfare and what we need to do is defeat Islamic jihad," Bachmann proclaimed as she criticized Obama for not acknowledging this fact.
"Yes Mr. President, it is about Islam!"
Bachmann then once again offered her sage advice to defeating ISIS, advice she seems to think that Obama is ignoring as he launches airstrikes against them: “You kill their leader, you kill their council, you kill their army until they wave the white flag of surrender. That’s how you win a war!”

After arguing that Obama is allowing “his ISIS buddies to behead and crucify Christians,” Wiles said he’s “starting to believe that Mr. Obama may be in fact the Islamic Mahdi, the eleventh [sic] imam who comes to fulfill the ministry of the prophet Mohammad. He is a very evil, wicked and dangerous man.”
Wiles also insisted that the U.S. government “tipped off” ISIS fighters about sites targeted by the U.S.-led coalition’s airstrikes in Syria and Iraq “before the American bombers got there.”

Fox Panelist Hoenig Wrongly Defends Muslim Profiling With WWII Japanese Camps [TW: Hate Speech, Xenophobia, Islamophobia, Racial Profiling]
During a panel discussion, one of the show’s guests, Jonathan Hoenig stated: “We should have been profiling on September 12, 2001.” He then doubled-down on this sentiment (video below), saying, “The last war this country won, we put Japanese Americans in internment camps; we dropped nuclear bombs on residential city centers. So, yes, profiling would be at least a good start.”
Bolling let Hoenig express these hateful opinions unchecked, despite the fact that Japanese American Internment remains one of the most shameful periods in our nation’s history – a fact acknowledged by the US government in its 1988 apology to the former internees. Bolling and the show’s producers also ignored that such xenophobic and hateful sentiment since 9/11 has led to numerous acts of hate and violence against innocent Americans that were deemed a potential “threat” to the nation, based simply on how they looked, dressed, or worshipped.
By airing these comments without context or criticism, Fox News all but endorsed them. This is especially irresponsible, given the recent spike in hate crimes that has occurred around the country, against Sikh Americans as well as other communities. As we saw after 9/11, and as we saw during World War II, attacks on the United States, as well as military entanglements abroad, can lead to heightened emotions and confusion among the American public. Under these circumstances, people are far quicker to give in to fear and hate, and to lash out at those perceived as different. Remarks like those made on Fox News this Monday greatly exacerbate this risk, and foster an environment where entire communities are far more likely to be subjected to discrimination and violence.
One of the values that we hold dear as Americans is the concept of freedom of expression. The ability of our fellow Americans to express their beliefs freely, without persecution, is one of the things that makes this country unique, and a global leader. However, the right to free speech is not a right to spew hate on national television without question or criticism. When Hoenig spoke out in support of racial profiling, of internment, and of the marginalization of an entire religious community, Bolling had the opportunity, and the obligation, to respond. Sadly, he did not respond, and let Hoenig’s claims go unchallenged. Isn’t that the responsibility that we have entrusted to the media, our nation’s fourth estate? In front of a national television audience, Bolling and Fox News essentially gave tacit support to Hoenig’s xenophobia and hate.
In light of the recent hate crimes that we have seen, against Sikh Americans, Muslim Americans, and so many others, I strongly urge Bolling, Roger Ailes, and the Fox News Network to repudiate Hoenig’s assertions, and to apologize, not only to the Muslim American community, but to Japanese Americans, whose internment during World War II Hoenig explicitly endorsed. By sending the message that groups of Americans, due to their race, religion, national origin, or other background are inherently suspicious, Fox News is fostering an environment of fear, distrust, and ultimately hate. They must rectify this situation immediately.

WorldNetDaily columnist Gina Loudon is promoting her book “What Women Really Want” by arguing today that Republicans should be “giddy” about the prospect of running against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race.
She calls on GOP politicians to attack Clinton for supposedly tolerating rape and other forms of violence against women: "If she stood passive while Islamic women were raped and stoned to death, what will she passively let happen to women were she president of the United States?"
Loudon goes on to claim that immigration reform and gun policy reform are part of the real “war on women.”The first war is one where women are being serially gang-raped and stoned to death by Islamists across the world who believe women are only one-fifth of a person. If a woman is raped, under Shariah law, five men must testify that they witnessed the woman being raped. Otherwise, she is stoned to death in front of her friends and family. Christian and Jewish women are being led like lambs to slaughter by Islamists. There is definitely a war on women, but not the one the statist elites in D.C. like to pretend is happening. That is but a ruse designed to distract the simple minded.
Where are the old-school feminists who cussed conservative icons like Phyllis Schlafly and burned their bras in protest of equal pay, in the face of this bloody war on women? Do equal rights not to be stoned matter less than equal pay or birth control?
Where is Hillary on this? If I were GOP leadership, I would be giddy about the thought of a Hillary run. Aside from Benghazi, think about a campaign based on what she never did to stop the real war on women. If she stood passive while Islamic women were raped and stoned to death, what will she passively let happen to women were she president of the United States?
Women with whom we spoke on our book tour are most concerned with safety and security, and that is because of failed foreign policy and open borders exacted on them by the pro-old-feminist administration (including old feminists like Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton, etc.). Economic security and national security are of grave concern to women today. Open borders give away jobs, especially starter jobs for youth. Open borders let terrorists in our country, and that threatens women’s families and futures. Open borders mean children with unknown, untreatable and, in some cases, latent diseases sit in classrooms with our children.
Even for those women who don’t care to ever touch a gun (and that is OK), most still wouldn’t want to take away the rights of other moms to protect their children, their families from abusers, or their homes from tyranny.

Larry Klayman is once again calling for the military to remove President Obama from office, telling Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association in an interview today that military leaders should “rise up” and “go to the president and say, ‘Your time’s up,’ just like they did to Mohamed Morsi in Egypt, ‘Take a hike guy, you’re destroying the country.’”
Klayman, who organized a White House rally last year that he hoped would lead to Obama’s ouster, insisted that the move would not be a coup d’état because Obama is “not a legitimate president” and is “having our people killed for no reason.”
Klayman added that Obama is an observant Muslim who wears a “ring that says my only God is Allah,” while Wildmon said he believes the president “is a Muslim in his thinking.”
His claim that Obama wears an Islamic ring is completely false and originated with a debunked WorldNetDaily article.
At another point in the “Today’s Issues” interview, Klayman said Obama “protects his Muslim brothers at the expense of Christians and Jews.”
“This president is anti-Christian, he’s anti-Semitic, he doesn’t like white people,” Klayman continued. “We’re taking strong legal action hopefully to get him removed from office as soon as possible before we go under for the count.”
The right-wing activist went on to say that Obama is a “socialist, a black Muslim in the mold of Louis Farrakhan” who wants people to “pay back African Americans” by “deconstructing the country, trying to bring the country down, in effect like revenge.”
“We can’t take it anymore, we just simply can’t take it anymore.”

FRC head Tony Perkins: Atheists Working Through AP History Classes To Enable ISIS, Sexting, 'Hip-Hop Gang Banger Music'
On his radio program earlier this week, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins declared that the separation of church and state is to blame for the Americans who have left to fight alongside ISIS because “[r]adical secularism that has driven the defining characteristics of our Western culture, our Judeo-Christian heritage, from our schools, our entertainment and even our government has left in its place a void, a vacuum.”
In a column for the Christian Post yesterday, Perkins expanded on the claim, adding that the same “atheizers” who are responsible for Americans joining ISIS are also the cause of “hip-hop gang banger music” and the “the appalling phenomenon of teens ‘sexting.’”
He also links ISIS recruitment, hip-hop and sexting to a new AP U.S. History exam, which he says teaches “anti-Americanism” and to “a jihad in the classroom” consisting of what Religious Right groups claim is an insufficiently hostile portrayal of Islam in textbooks.
“Our young people need to know the truth about America’s storied past,” he writes. “And those who deny it to them are actually feeding the flames of jihad.”
Where there is no vision, the people perish. Americans have been shocked to see the brutality and barbarism of the Islamic militants of ISIS. Americans have been stunned by the revelations that their fellow Americans have joined the ranks of ISIS are taking up the cause of the caliphate. Pundits and politicians alike have publicly pondered the question as to how young Americans can be sucked into such an evil venture. While it may be troubling, the answer is not hard. Atheizers have been driving out of our schools, our entertainment, our military, and our government the very definition of who we are: our Judeo- Christian heritage. What has been left in its place has been called a naked public square. But just as nature abhors a vacuum, something was bound to rush into this void.
We see this in the violent nihilism of the hip-hop gang banger music from which Hollywood sucks billions of dollars .Into this naked public square has rushed a morbid hatred of women, an ugly sexualized pop culture, and the appalling phenomenon of teens “sexting” lewd pictures of their classmates—in our children’s schools.
We see in the Advanced Placement U.S. History standards anti-Americanism foisted on some of the brightest of our young people. In place of the heroism of Bunker Hill and that “stillness at Appomattox,” of the sacrifices of the Boys of Bedford on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, we see people whose salaries we pay teaching our young people to have contempt for their country and its history.
There has been a jihad in the classroom as students are given an air-brushed history of Islam and too often taught that Christianity is the root of many repressive attitudes toward women and minorities.
George Washington, a Christian, was the first ruler in history to address the Jews as equal fellow citizens. That is just one of the amazing truths about America that make us an exceptional country.
Our young people need to know the truth about America’s storied past. And those who deny it to them are actually feeding the flames of jihad.
Without a creedal vision that a society can unify around, the people of the nation will perish. Unless we are content to allow ISIS or some other radical belief to fill the void left by secularism, we must rediscover America’s Founding, Christ-centered vision.

Yesterday on “Trunews,” Family Research Council executive vice president Jerry Boykin said that President Obama has committed impeachable offenses but is getting off scott-free because the president, with help from the Muslim Brotherhood and LGBT advocates, is “brainwashing” Americans.
Boykin said that Obama “orchestrated the invasion” of child migrants fleeing Central America into the U.S. in order to “establish a voter bloc that would be in perpetuity would be a bloc for the Democrats.”
“It is treasonous behavior,” Boykin said, explaining that Obama should be impeached “but nobody is going to do it” and so now he is going to become America’s all-powerful “King.”
Boykin agreed with host Rick Wiles that Obama is employing Islamist-Marxist “psy-ops,” or psychological operations, to manipulate Americans in order to hold onto power.
“The Islamists are running an influence campaign, trying to change our thinking and you saw the evidence of that when the president stood up last week and said ‘ISIS is not Islam,’ that’s an influence campaign, that’s brainwashing the American people trying to get them to believe that nonsense,” he said. “You see that also with the Marxists, Marxists are doing exactly the same thing. The LGBT lobby is doing the same thing, they are bombarding us with this messaging that is really about changing the way we think, changing our attitude.”
The two right-wing commentators then agreed that Obama is a full-blown Marxist and “the first ‘Red’ president.”
Two crazy right-wing kooks.
