Beck: The Obamas Hate America Because They Never Accomplished Anything On Their Own And Still Answer To 'The Man'

Nobody quite infuriates Glenn Beck like First Lady Michelle Obama, whom he has attacked in the past as "a monster" who is "nuts," and his fury is generally unleashed whenever she dares to mention this nation's struggle with racism, which he inevitably interprets as her showing nothing but contempt and hatred for America.

Discussions of race have played a key role in several of the commencement addresses that the first lady has delivered in recent weeks and Beck grew predictably outraged on his radio program today as he spelled out his theory that Barack and Michelle Obama hate America so much because they know that they never accomplished anything on their own and therefore feel like they are still being controlled by "the man."

"I think honestly that some of their saying, 'You can't make it, you can't make it' is because they didn't make it on their own," Beck said. "They didn't. They made it through George Soros and the Tides Foundation and everything else. They were picked up by people who said, 'That one, that guy, that couple.' They were shaped by the collective. He's not a scrappy guy who made it on his own. He's a scrappy guy that said the right things, did the right things."

"Look at what he said he was going to do and what he's done," Beck continued. "He answers to a lot of people, so I think that they think they didn't really make it on their own. They're still working for the man."

Hey Ladies, Do You Get Emotional During Your Period? Take Solace In Knowing It's Just A 'God-Given Sadness'

Last year, Glenn Beck totally freaked out over the release of the video for Nicki Minaj's song "Only," which he bizarrely claimed was a violation of the biblical command to keep kosher because it was mixing "graphic, awful sex with the images of death."

It turns out that this idea was something he had learned directly from his favorite right-wing rabbi, Daniel Lapin, who appeared on his radio program this morning to further expand upon this theory and enlighten Beck's audience to the fact that women get emotional during menstruation because they are sad about the loss of potential life.

After Beck brought up his concerns about society's tendency to mix images of sex with images of death, Lapin explained that this was exactly why God prohibited anyone from touching a woman for seven days during her monthly period in Leviticus 15, since sex represents life while a menstrual period represents death.

As Lapin put it, "the good Lord created men with an infinite capacity to produce seed at almost any age whereas he chose to create women with an absolute finite limited number of eggs. And so the loss of an egg every month, for any sensitive woman, is sad because it's one less opportunity for life. And so foolish and insensitive people say, 'Oh, it's just a hormonal imbalance,' it isn't; it's a genuine, authentic sadness which suffuses any sensitive woman at the loss of an egg."

Beck, of course, was blown away by this revelation.

"Wow, I've never thought of it that way," he said. "It is actually a God-given sadness."

President Santorum Won't Enforce Gay Marriage Ruling Since It's A 'Violation Of The First Amendment'

Rick Santorum called into Glenn Beck's radio program this morning, where he warned that if the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage, it will be an unconstitutional establishment of religion that, when he becomes president, he will not enforce.

Citing the absurd claims made by David Barton on his radio program yesterday, Beck warned that if the Supreme Court strikes down gay marriage bans, the government will strip churches of their tax-exempt status and force them to perform gay marriages, and asked Santorum how he would respond to this if he is elected president.

"This is tantamount to government establishing religion," Santorum said. "When the United States government comes in and says this is what you are going to believe, this is how you're going to practice your faith, this is a new religion. This violates, in my opinion, the Establishment Clause in the Constitution that says that Congress shall make no law with respect to an establishment of religion. If the government goes around and tells churches what they have to believe in and what their doctrine is, that is something that is a violation of the First Amendment."

Santorum said that he holds out hope that the Supreme Court will rule against marriage equality advocates "because there is no way that the left will stop at mere tolerance, they will demand conformity, they will demand it from the church, they will demand it from every institution, they will demand it from businesses and there will be no tolerance to a different point of view on this issue."

But if the Supreme Court does legalize gay marriage, Santorum said that, as president, he will fight it.

"If they get it wrong and the consequences are what I suspect they will be toward people of faith," he said, "then this president will fight back."

Glenn Beck's Discussion Of Texas Pool Party Incident Naturally Concludes With Nazi Reference

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck spent a segment discussing the recent video showing a white Texas police officer roughing up a black teenager girl at a pool party, which he naturally asserted was just more proof of his conspiracy theory that progressives are working to discredit the local police in order to justify a federal takeover.

During the discussion, Beck and his co-hosts wondered why adults in the area didn't intervene during the confrontation and help the police round up the teenagers at the party, concluding that nobody helped out because they were afraid of getting involved.

And since this is Glenn Beck, it was then only a matter of time before he brought it all back to Nazi Germany.

"They made you afraid," Beck said. "Why are people not speaking out on things now? You're afraid. Why don't you say things anymore? Because you might be called a nasty name. You might be destroyed. They are making you afraid. The first thing the goon squads that Hitler had out; do you know how he grabbed control of Germany? Now thank God, we're not here, but it's happening to us mentally."

Beck then went on to recall how Hitler's Brownshirts would beat up anyone who did not support their agenda in an effort to intimidate anyone who might consider voicing their opposition in order to warn that the same thing is happening in America today.

"That's how they did it," Beck said. "Well, that's happening to us mentally now. Every time you speak out, every time you don't comply, God forbid you say something about Caitlyn Jenner like Clint Eastwood, they'll hammer the snot out of you. They'll destroy your job, they'll destroy you socially, they'll make your name the worst bigoted name out there. You cannot be afraid. If you're afraid now, you wait. You stay silent much longer and it will get much, much worse."

Barton: Gay Marriage Will Force Male And Female College Athletes To Share The Same Locker Room

David Barton appeared on Glenn Beck's radio program this morning where he warned that if the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage, it will lead to the elimination of gender-specific locker rooms for all college athletes.

After claiming that the legalization of gay marriage will force churches to hire "a homosexual youth director" despite the fact that it conflicts with their religious beliefs, Barton went on to assert that it will also require male and female college athletes to share one locker room.

"Because sex also means gender identification," Barton said, "Title IX, which is what all the colleges use for sports, it goes out the door as well. So all your locker rooms now become one locker room, you can't distinguish between male and female."

"This destroys all of society," Beck added:

It should be pointed out that nothing like this has occurred in any of the 37 states that already have marriage equality.

Glenn Beck Prepares To Become The Modern Day Martin Luther King Of Fighting Gay Marriage

All last week, Glenn Beck promised that he would make a major announcement on Monday morning about some new campaign, saying "I believe my entire life has led to this point."

This morning, Beck made that announcement but, in typical Beck fashion, he first spent nearly an hour and a half delivering a long-winded and self-aggrandizing monologue full of references to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King and passages of Scripture as he railed about how America has gone completely off the rails, fuming that this nation only cares about things like Caitlyn Jenner, abortion rights, and transableism at a time when Christians are being slaughtered by ISIS in the Middle East.

"We are no longer a country that I recognize," he said. "We are no longer a people that I recognize. We are no longer a nation in which I care to call myself a member of. We've become a place where our citizenship is more of an indictment than an honor ... We are a country that has not only lost its way, but history will show that we have lost our ever-loving minds."

Eventually, Beck finally got around to announcing a new "Never Again Is Now" campaign to raise awareness of the crisis in the Middle East and a relief effort organized by his Mercury One charity to provide supplies and aid to those displaced and threatened by ISIS.

But there is more to the effort than simply providing relief to the victims of ISIS, as Beck is personally launching a speaking tour of churches in order to wake up Americans to the threat posed by things like gay marriage and to train them to carry out boycotts, civil disobedience, and nonviolent resistance ... and just like Martin Luther King, Beck will be kicking this effort off in Birmingham, Alabama.

"If you think there is trouble now, what happens when the Supreme Court decides to say that homosexual marriage is the law of the land?" Beck asked. "Will this administration then force our churches to comply? Will you be forced to violate your own faith? We must together wake the most powerful force on earth: the people of God."

"I'm going to begin," he continued, "where Martin Luther King began. On 8/28, I'm going to be in Birmingham, Alabama in a church just down the street from where Martin Luther King began his historic stand against Bull Connor ... We are going to begin to gather like-minded people and we are going to begin to train ourselves for non-violent resistance and civil disobedience. We're going to begin to train ourselves for boycotts and sit-ins. We're going to do all of the things that we thought were too radical or too hippy-like to do because we have to understand that we are now David and Goliath has all of the power. But we all know how that story ends."

Frankly, we are surprised that Beck has the time for this new effort since we assumed that he must still be hard at work building the $2 billion "Independence Park" libertarian utopia that he promised us over two years ago.

Beck: We Have 10,000 Pastors Who Are Willing To Die Resisting Anti-Christian Persecution In America

Next week, Religious Right activist Jim Garlow will be hosting a four day conference at his California megachurch called the "Future Conference: What You Thought Was Coming ... Is Here Now." That sort of a dire warning perfectly matches up with what Glenn Beck has been saying for the last several months, so naturally Beck invited Garlow on to his radio program yesterday to promote the event.

Garlow's conference is coming at the perfect time, Beck said, because society is about to collapse and America needs passionate pastors who are willing to give up their lives if necessary in the fight against the coming persecution of Christians. Fortunately, the Black Robe Regiment that he and David Barton established a few years back has managed to cobble together at least 10,000 pastors who are willing to do just that.

"The number in the Black Robe Regiment is about 70,000 now," Beck said. "The number that I think will walk through a wall of fire, you know, and possible death, is anywhere between 17,000 and 10,000. That is an extraordinary number of people that are willing to lay it all down on the table and willing to go to jail or go to death because they serve God and not man."

Garlow was in complete agreement, saying that the necessity of being willing to die is "honestly where we are."

"We've come to that moment," he said. "People like you and me and, thank God, many others are digging in very deeply and laying the benchmark of where we're going to stand on these issues."

"You're going to see these 10,000 to 20,000 pastors begin to stand up," Beck promised, "and say 'it doesn't matter if I lose my church, it doesn't matter if I lose my building, it doesn't matter if I lose my life, I will not sit down!'"

Glenn Beck Laughably Claims That Nobody Has Objected To Caitlyn Jenner's Transition

It is obvious that Glenn Beck lives in a very isolated bubble and that if certain information and/or events do not happen to penetrate that bubble, then he is confident that such information and/or events do not exist.

This was perfectly demonstrated on his radio program today when he and his co-hosts had a discussion about Caitlyn Jenner's gender transition and Beck absurdly proclaimed that nobody thinks it is a big deal and even conservatives have no problem with it.

"I wish you happiness," Beck said. "I don't hate Bruce or Caitlyn and I don't know anybody who does. What's so striking here is, if you're a liberal, you would expect there to be a massive outrage, especially since he came out and said he was conservative ... Have you heard any push back from any conservative? You didn't hear any of that."

This is laughable, especially since we have written several posts in just the last few days of Religious Right activists doing just that.

Bryan Fischer said Jenner's transition is a sign that America is "morally corrupt" and on the verge of destruction, while Alex McFarland has called it "demonic" and Sandy Rios said it was "a human tragedy." Michael Savage said that Jenner belongs in a straitjacket, and Beck's good friend Ted Nugent said that Jenner was mentally ill and a "Bizzarro World Planet of the Apes over the cuckoos nest clockwork dayglo orange Mad Magazine spoof on life."

Heck, even Dana Loesh, who hosts a show on Beck's own network, made it very clear that she was "not welcoming Bruce Jenner into the sisterhood."

If Beck has not heard "any of that" sort of talk about Jenner, it is only because he hasn't been paying attention.

'This Is The Time': Everything Glenn Beck Has Warned About For 10 Years Is Now Coming True

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck issued yet another somber warning that all of the dire catastrophes about which he has been warning for the last 10 years are now coming to fruition.

In this case, Beck was alarmed by a long article in the New York Times exposing an army of Russian internet trolls who foment hoaxes and infiltrate social media outlets for the purpose of posting pro-Russian propaganda. Beck's own The Blaze was mentioned in the article as one of the websites that had been targets of such efforts, which is just further proof that "this is the time I have been talking about for probably 10 years."

"The things that I have been warning about," he said, "that we're going to start turning on each other and we're just not going to know who to believe or who to trust or where to go, this is the time. This is it. I am convinced of it."

"It's just time now," he continued. "It's time now to decide who you are, to decide who your family, in your family history, who your family will remember you as. What did my father do, what did my mother do, what did my grandparents do when the world was insane? We've been talking about it for a while, but it's here. It's here."

Beck: Rick Perry's 2011 Prayer Proclamation Ended Texas' Drought

Glenn Beck returned from vacation today and noted that upon his return flight back to Texas, he was astonished to see the extent of the flooding that devastated large parts of the state during his absence. After co-host Stu Burguiere mocked the idea that the flooding, or the preceding drought, could in any way be attributed to climate change, Beck noted that it was actually former Gov. Rick Perry's 2011 prayer proclamation that ended Texas' drought.

Beck explained that it had also rained nearly every day while he was on vacation at his ranch in Idaho, which he attributed to the fact that local residents began to fast for rain a few weeks ago.

"Five weeks ago, they had a fast for rain because they were in a drought," Beck said. "And it started raining five weeks ago."

Similarly, Beck said, the state of Texas began to work it way out of its drought after Perry prayed for rain back in 2011, which is a position shared by a number of other Religious Right activists.

"We started ending that drought with that fast," he said. "He was mocked for it and he went ahead and did it and that was the beginning of the end of the drought. We started having rain right after that, and this state was a desert."

Paranoia-Rama: Obama Apocalypse, Jade Helm 15 Continues And The Imminent Fall Of America

Conservatives have once again uncovered the truth about President Obama’s plans to impose martial law, destroy the U.S. and usher in the End Times, all of which will happen any day now.

Beck: 'The Cops Are Being Set Up' By President Obama For A Federal Takeover

Tonight, Glenn Beck is set to air a special report on the militarization of the police called "Excessive Force" that aims to expose "the root" of the rise in the use of SWAT teams and military equipment by local police forces.

This program is apparently not sitting well with some of Beck's fans, who are now lashing out at him for being "anti-police," which forced Beck to spend his entire opening monologue on his program last night repeatedly assuring his audience that he loves and respects the police and is constantly approaching officers to tell them how much he appreciates them.

In fact, Beck said, he is the "best friend" that local police have because he is the only one willing to warn them that the militarization of their force is part of a nefarious progressive conspiracy to undermine their effectiveness by sowing fear among the general population that the police are out of control so that the federal government can then seize control of local police forces all over the nation.

Beck insisted last night that individual police officers and local police forces are not to blame for their own use or misuse of military-style equipment because they are all being set up by President Obama.

"You’re armed to the teeth so you look provocative, and yet they’re holding you back. Why do you think they’re doing that? Why?," Beck asked. "They are causing the American people to lose trust in you. Nothing you’re doing is making the American people lose trust in you. This is orchestrated, and we must know what’s going on and what the end of the road is."

"The president just said, 'I’m taking some of this military equipment away.' No, he’s not," Beck continued. "He is creating the impression he says you’re out of control because remember, the police act stupidly, so he’s creating the impression that you’re out of control, that you have too much stuff, when, in reality, he’s not taking any of that stuff away. His people are holding you back while they are calling for the Justice Department to take over local policing. Don’t you see the game that is being played, and the cops are being set up? By God, man, I’m your best friend because no one else will talk about this":

Rick Perry: Nobody Will Worry About Jade Helm-Type Conspiracy Theories When I Am President

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry promised on Glenn Beck’s radio program today that right-wing conspiracy theorists will have no cause to freak out over things like Jade Helm 15 when he is president.

After Beck said that distrust of the government over Jade Helm among "law abiding, normal citizens" who love America is a sign that "crazy things are happening now," Perry vowed that that would not be a problem if he were to become commander in chief.

"Let's say that I were to become the president of the United States," Perry said. "I think there will be a clearly changed attitude toward that office, what comes out of that office, the messaging that comes out of that office that clearly puts America back on a course where people [trust the government.]"

"I hope people always question government," he continued, "but don't question your military. Don't question the men and women who have put their hands up and sworn this oath to our Constitution to defend this country":

'This Is A Show By The President': Beck Plows Ahead With His Government Takeover Of Local Police Conspiracy Theory

On Monday, we noted that President Obama was set to announce that new restrictions were being put in place that would limit the use of military equipment by local police forces, which kind of threw a wrench into Glenn Beck's current conspiracy theory that Obama is intentionally militarizing the police ahead of a planned federal take over a police forces all over the nation.

Needless to say, this new announcement has not, in any way, actually undermined Beck's theory, as he spent the opening segment of his television program last night explaining that these new restrictions are nothing but "a show" designed to conceal the fact that Obama is actually implementing more federal control over local police forces.

Ignoring all of the actual prohibitions and restrictions that have been put in place, Beck insisted that this is nothing but cover for a well-coordinated White House plan to use groups like Code Pink, Move On, CAIR, and the New Black Panthers to stir up civil unrest for the purpose of providing an excuse for the government to seize control of local police departments.

"This is a show by the president," Beck said. "Expect to see more protests continue ... Expect sometime between now and I don't know when, these groups are going to be instrumental in setting our cities on fire, getting us to tear each other apart, getting us to cry out, 'Somebody's got to stop the madness,' and the president will be happy to do it with centralized control of police and a national police force":

Beck: If Hillary Clinton Becomes President, 'That Means The People Are Dead' And America Will Be Destroyed

Just prior to the 2012 presidential election, Glenn Beck was positive that Mitt Romney would win with a large margin of victory because Romney was being guided by God and "God is not neutral in [the] freedom of all mankind."

Romney simply had to win, Beck warned the day before the election, because the alternative meant that Americans are "so dead inside ... that they can no longer see the difference between good and evil, [and so] we have to be destroyed because we will be a remarkable evil on this planet."

Obviously, the nation has so far managed to survive President Obama's re-election, despite Beck's dire prediction ... so naturally, he is now warning that America will be destroyed if Hillary Clinton is elected president.

"If she is the president of the United States, I swear to you, that is it, we are done," he said on his radio program today. "You can't have all of the scandals that she has and be president of the United States. That means the people are dead. That means we have voted for destruction":

Beck: 'I Would Suggest That You Prepare For All-Out War'

On his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck reiterated his view that the fight against ISIS is going to be World War III, warning his audience to get ready for economic collapse and terrorist attacks that target schoolchildren while advising them to "prepare for all-out war."

Beck and his co-hosts were discussing the fight against ISIS, which Beck argued will never succeed until America is ready to engage in full-fledged World War II-type of mobilization and witness mass civilian casualties, which co-host Stu Burguiere repeatedly insisted was an entirely unrealistic standard in this day and age.

That is true, Beck conceded, before noting that a few massive changes were in store for this nation in the form of social and economic collapse, which will ready America for all out war.

"Economic collapse and terrorist attacks here on our own soil where they go into a school and they just kill a bunch of our children," Beck predicted. "Yeah, we'll bomb the snot out of them."

"We're not in fear of losing our country yet," Beck continued. "When you have a real true fear of losing everything, losing your homeland, and that happens we people are invading; it's going to be different next time. It's not going to be 19 guys who got onto a passport and just came over here, now its going to be homegrown, now it's going to be in multiple cities, so you won't know."

"I would suggest that you prepare for all-out war," he concluded. "War unlike we've ever seen in our lifetime because that's what I believe is coming":

Glenn Beck's Latest Conspiracy Theory Starts To Fall Apart Before He Can Even Expose It

For weeks now, Glenn Beck has been incessantly warning that a conspiracy is afoot in which phony grassroots activists are ginning up civil unrest in places like Baltimore and Ferguson in order to create a situation which will allow the federal government to step in and take control of local police departments all over the nation.

A key component of this strategy has been the militarization of local police forces, Beck has warned.

"You can call it a conspiracy all you want, "Beck said on his radio program last Monday. "Look at our police force today. Our police forces have military equipment! Is it a coincidence? Maybe it is. Is it a coincidence then that Al Sharpton is calling for this and meeting with the president? Maybe it is. But how many of these coincidences do you need before you start to say, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Even if it is a coincidence, we need to stop this":

Beck has been so alarmed by this conspiracy that he is dedicating a special program to exposing it on Thursday "that will blow your mind" as he connects all of the dots behind what is really taking place.

"Next Thursday is the 50th anniversary of the last time we had martial law in this country," Beck said last Friday. "And once you know the history of the last time we had martial law in this country and then you see what Al Sharpton is calling for and you see what they’re starting to plant in all of these cities, you’ll understand why all of a sudden they say, well, let me just say this: When you watch next week’s episode, you will no longer question why Baltimore and Ferguson, why they didn’t send the police — why Baltimore said, just let it burn for a while. We got a zone where they can just destroy things. You will completely understand":

Apparently President Obama did not get the message about the conspiracy to militarize the police in anticipation of taking them over, as today he is set to announce restrictions on providing military equipment to police and efforts to recall equipment that has already been handed out:

Nine months after police in riot gear dispelled racially charged protests, President Barack Obama is prohibiting the federal government from providing some military-style equipment to local departments and putting stricter controls on other weapons and gear distributed to law enforcement.

The surprise announcement comes after the White House suggested last year that Obama would maintain programs that provide the type of military-style equipment used to respond to demonstrators last summer in Ferguson, Missouri, because of their broader contribution to public safety. But an interagency group found "substantial risk of misusing or overusing" items like tracked armored vehicles, high-powered firearms and camouflage could undermine trust in police.

...

In previewing the president's trip, the White House said that effective immediately, the federal government will no longer fund or provide armored vehicles that run on a tracked system instead of wheels, weaponized aircraft or vehicles, firearms or ammunition of .50-caliber or higher, grenade launchers, bayonets or camouflage uniforms. The federal government also is exploring ways to recall prohibited equipment already distributed.

In addition, a longer list of equipment the federal government provides will come under tighter control, including wheeled armored vehicles like Humvees, manned aircraft, drones, specialized firearms, explosives, battering rams and riot batons, helmets and shields. Starting in October, police will have to get approval from their city council, mayor or some other local governing body to obtain it, provide a persuasive explanation of why it is needed and have more training and data collection on the use of the equipment.

While this development would seem to undermine Beck's entire theory, he will presumably now work to spin this as confirmation that the conspiracy has been discovered and is now being covered up by the government.

Takeover! Jade Helm 15 And Eight Other Obama Plots That Keep The Right Up at Night

It seems that radical right-wing conspiracy theorists have the ear of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who recently ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor a U.S. military exercise called Jade Helm 15. According to many of these far-right activists, Jade Helm 15 is part of a secret effort to take over conservative states like Texas, impose martial lawconfiscate people’s firearmsround up “patriotic men,” force people into cattle cars and lock them up in Wal-Marts that have been converted into FEMA camps.

Abbott has since tried to distance himself from the conspiracy theory, but Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Tex., has demanded — and apparently received — a meeting with military leaders over the matter.

Jade Helm 15 is just the latest in a litany of far-right conspiracy theories about President Obama planning a military takeover of the country. While none of the theories has ever actually panned out, far-right pundits and activists keep inventing new ones, insisting that whoever doesn’t agree with them either doesn’t see the truth or is enabling Obama’s dictatorial agenda.

Remember: Obama’s plot against America goes all the way back to his birth…

1) Barack the Baby Communist

Faith 2 Action founder Janet Porter, who recently worked with Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul and several GOP candidates on a film about how the gay rights movement will “criminalize Christianity,” revealed to WorldNetDaily readers just two weeks into Obama’s first term that she had learned through a chain email that the president had been planted as a baby by Russian communists who would use him to take over America.

“I can’t prove whether it’s true or not, but in light of all that is happening, it just doesn’t seem that far-fetched anymore,” Porter wrote, claiming that the letter was “not some e-mail scam” and that she personally reached out to its source to confirm the details.

According to the email’s author, during the early 1990s he met two Russian scientists, spouses “V.M” and “T.M,” who told him that “you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist” … named “Barack.” The Russians continued:

This is not some idle talk. He is already born, and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of presidents. He is what you call ‘Ivy League.’ You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your president.



It’s all been thought out. His father is not an American black, so he won’t have that social slave stigma. He is intelligent and he is half white and has been raised from the cradle to be an atheist and a Communist. He’s gone to the finest schools. He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America

The female scientist seemed to know a lot about this young man: “She rattled off a complete litany. He was from Hawaii. He went to school in California. He lived in Chicago. He was soon to be elected to the Legislature. ‘Have no doubt: he is one of us, a Soviet …. [H]e will be a blessing for world Communism. We will regain our strength and become the number one power in the world.’ She continued with something to the effect that America was at the same time the great hope and the great obstacle for Communism. America would have to be converted to Communism, and Barack was going to pave the way.”
 

A few right-wing activists tried to find proof of this arrangement, alleging that Communist Party mentored and indoctrinated Obama — possibly with the help of marijuana and his “real fatherFrank Marshall Davis — into “Marxism and an anti-White world view.”

As it turned out, every single word in this chain email was true! Maybe. And now, Obama is on the brink of taking over America with his secret squads of Obamacare militias, immigrants, African Americans and/or foreign troops.

2) Obamacare Squads

Before joining the Family Research Council, retired Army Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin released a video with the far-right group the Oak Initiative suggesting that Obama is leading a “Marxist insurgency” in the U.S. He claimed that Obama inserted into the Affordable Care Act a measure that would create a personal army reminiscent of Adolf Hitler’s Brownshirts, warning that the president was “laying the groundwork for a constabulary force that will control the population in America.”

Boykin cited a provision in the health care act which prepares medical professionals to respond to emergencies such as a hurricane, along with a 2008 speech that then-candidate Obama delivered about the need to increase funding for groups such as the Peace Corps and AmericaCorps as part of a “civilian national security force,” a move backed by the Bush administration.

Several years later, the Obamacare brownshirts still haven’t materialized, but the 2008 speech remains a source of fodder for conservatives who believe, as then-Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., put it shortly after Obama’s election, that Obama was doing “exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did.”

Liberty Counsel head Mat Staver agreed with Boykin’s assessment, warning that the health care law created a Brownshirt-style military force loyal to the president.

Porter joined in in 2012, claiming that FEMA Corps, which trains young people to work in disaster response, might actually be “a standing army to stifle dissent” and “part of a new civilian security force that President Obama has called for in speeches.” WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah, who once alleged that Obama sent a secret signal to Muslims to “finish” the Holocaust against the Jews, similarly warned that Obama would soon “move to shut down and destroy all independent media” and would make sure that “his biggest critics will be rounded up in the name of national security.”

3) About That Executive Order…

In 2012, when Obama issued an emergency preparedness executive order similar to ones issued by presidents since Dwight Eisenhower, some right-wing commentators went ballistic since this time, the president was Obama!

Buster Wilson, then a radio host with the American Family Association’s radio network, claimed that the executive order created “the president’s version of the Brownshirts” that was equivalent to “Hitler’s own private civilian army.” Wilson also wondered if the government was setting up FEMA camps stocked with plastic coffins for mass graves.

“He is openly implementing martial law in this country,” InfoWars host Alex Jones said about the executive order. The executive order, Jones claimed, declared that administration officials would have the power to “secretly arrest Americans and disappear us any time they want” and build “the domestic security force that’s just as big and just as strong as the military Obama’s always talked about as the ‘FEMA Corps.’”

One congressman, then-Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, suggested that the president would use the executive order to seize total power. In fact, Stockman speculated that Obama may have deliberately brought Ebola to America in order to create a crisis to justify the implementation of his order granting himself “emergency powers to take over control of the economy and everything.”

4) Ebola! Remember That?

Last year, four people were diagnosed with Ebola while in the U.S., two after travelling from West Africa and two after caring for an Ebola patient at a hospital in Texas. In the eyes of conservatives, this was a widespread pandemic that was all Obama’s fault.

According to Stockman, Obama may have had an “intentional” plan to bring Ebola into the U.S. “in order to create a greater crisis to use it as a blunt force to say, well in order to solve this crisis we’re going to have to take control of the economy and individuals and so forth…. [T]here may be an overreaction where the government starts taking away the rights of those that aren’t that necessarily involved or need that to happen. I hope that’s not that case but, as you know, this current government uses crisis to advance their philosophy and their agenda.”

Conservative talk show host Michael Savage claimed Obama “might use Ebola as a pretext” to “gain even more power.”

“He wants an insurrection,” Savage declared. “He wants a pretext. He wants his Kristallnacht. He wants to take the guns, he wants to arrest people, he wants to detain people for their own safety.”

Radio host Rick Wiles predicted that Ebola was part of “a carefully crafted plan to dismantle the United States of America,” as it would be used “as the cover to round up patriots who resist the takedown of the republic” and set up “Ebola Barry’s Ebola Recovery and Re-Education Camps.”

Another far-right radio host, Laurie Roth, predicted that Obama would deliberately fuel an Ebola outbreak in order to “create a guise to declare martial law due to created outbreaks,” giving him the power to “control speech, food, travel and health care” and even “demand adults and children take some sort of mandated/mystery vaccination that kills off even more people”:

My prediction is that a forced vaccination plan from Obama and his administration is on its way. This will not only allow someone put in control (so Obama can’t be blamed) to release something potentially fatal into our system, but also act as a tracker – the complete end of our privacy and freedom.

Columnists for WorldNetDialy alleged that Ebola was part of Obama’s “orchestrated” plan to cancel the 2016 election, “‘legitimize’ a declaration of martial law in America” and make use of “the $1 billion worth of disposable FEMA coffins supposedly stored in Georgia.”

Prior to the Ebola scare, Porter took to WorldNetDaily to predict that Obama would use swine flu to “round up American citizens” and force them into FEMA concentration camps. She also told WorldNetDaily readers that the president, emulating Nazi Germany and Soviet Union, would create “a food shortage” to see that people are “starved to death.”

5) Obama’s Race War Ruse

Since predictions about Obama’s dastardly plan to infect all other Americans with the Ebola virus in order to seize power didn’t exactly come true, conservative activists have turned to recent demonstrations over issues such as racial profiling as another Obama-orchestrated plot to take control of the country.

Glenn Beck, once again citing Obama’s frequently distorted 2008 speech, said that the riots that broke out during demonstrations in Baltimore in April were part of a “set-up” by the government to engineer civil strife in order to justify a federal takeover of local police units. And, once that happens, “it’s lights out, republic.”

“This is the biggest show ever,” Beck said. “Those riots in Baltimore; that wasn’t real.”

Beck went on to say that this manufactured crisis will soon lead to a full-blown genocide in which millions of people, including Beck himself, will perish.

Others in the right-wing media took similar views. Wiles claimed that protests in Ferguson, Missouri, were all part of a plot to enable “Emperor Obama” to “start a civil war,” which would give him a reason to implement stringent gun control so people could no longer “protect themselves from tyrants.” His fellow conservative talk show host Jesse Lee Peterson said that Obama brought “chaos” to Baltimore just so “he can federalize the police departments around the country.” WorldNetDaily columnist Morgan Brittany claimed that the Baltimore riots were “planned” by the government, which she said is bent on “stirring up unrest” in order to give Obama the justification “to institute martial law to preserve order, form a national police force and postpone the 2016 elections.”

Savage, the conservative radio host, even went so far as to allege that Obama started the riots as a way to send arms to gang members under the pretext of preserving order: “It’s a race war. These are their shock troops, they don’t have the brown shirts yet, they don’t have the armbands, but soon Obama could deputize them. Isn’t that a natural army for him? Take the Crips and the Bloods, give them a green uniform and give them a weapon and they’ll keep order in the streets.”

Well before the Ferguson and Baltimore demonstrations, Gun Owners of America head Larry Pratt and far-right pundit Stan Solomon predicted that the president would create a “black force” that would massacre any white people who resisted his plans.

In another interview, Pratt accused Obama of hoping to “bring violence” and “some kind of social implosion to America” as a way to keep power, with Solomon warning of “an explosion of attacks on haves by have-nots” and “more specifically on white haves by black have-nots; more specifically on Christian, heterosexual white haves by black, Muslim and/or atheist — not that there’s much difference — black have-nots.”

6) Bundy Ranch Standoff

The short-lived standoff between federal law enforcement and Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher and Fox News darling who refused to pay grazing fees for his cattle or to recognize the legal authority of the U.S. government, gave another opportunity for right-wing commentators to warn of an imminent federal takeover spurred on by Obama-instigated violence.

WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush pointed to the Bundy standoff as proof that “the federal government intends to control everything,” including “our food supply.” Denouncing President Obama as a someone who “embodies the diabolical Manchurian President, clandestinely working to destroy America,” Rush warned that the Bundy standoff might have been a test case for imminent FEMA camp internment.

“Do we wait until a family is slaughtered because they opened fire on government agents executing an illegal raid on their home?” he asked. “Do we wait until Department of Homeland Security operatives come around to arrest ‘domestic terrorists’ as designated by Harry Reid and ship them off to FEMA camps?”

Televangelist Gordon Klingenschmitt, who has since been elected to the Colorado legislature, said that the federal government dug “mass graves” near the ranch to hold the bodies of the “cowboys” they planned to murder. Wiles had a similar theory:

Civil unrest is brewing, the Obamanistas have tried a number of tactics to insult and infuriate the American people to respond with violence…. I expect dirty Harry Reid and his Washington sidekick Barry Soetoro will send federal agents back to Nevada this summer and my fear is that federal snipers will take out a bunch of cowboys and militia men.

Stewart Rhodes, the founder of Oath Keepers, a radical group which fears that concentration camps are coming to the U.S., stopped by a press conference at the National Press Club to deliver a “message for the feds out there” and the “idiot” Obama that the Bundy standoff could have “kicked off a civil war in this country.” Mike Vanderboegh of the Three Percenters militia said that officials such as Harry Reid were “promising us all civil war on a vast scale” through “state-sponsored violence” intended to crush freedom.

7) Obama’s Immigrant Army

Not only will Obama have loyal armies of doctors, AmeriCorps members, black protesters and gang members, but he will also, according to several conspiracy theorists, create a force of undocumented immigrants — specifically young Central American refugees escaping the drug war — to do his bidding.

Pratt, the gun lobbyist, claimed last year that Obama was forming a private “Praetorian Guard” composed of undocumented immigrants, each “loyal to the guy that brought him” into the country.

Anti-immigrant activist William Gheen offered his own version of this prediction, alleging that the federal government was “going to give the illegal immigrants badges, they’re going to give them guns, and they’re going to put them in positions of authority over Americans in every way imaginable. So when you step out your door and there’s a knock at the door, you’re going to be looking at the new face of the state, which is the prior illegal immigrants that now have a badge and a gun and dominion over you.”

Gheen added that the Obama administration was “supporting the organized and well-funded illegal alien invasion of our homeland” and therefore has “the blood of many thousands of Americans on their hands that have been killed, injured raped and robbed by illegal immigrants,” warning that “center-right, Christian, heterosexual” men were particularly at risk.

Gheen even told Jones, the “InfoWars” host, that the young immigrants were the pawns and child soldiers of U.S. “elites” who want to subjugate patriotic Christians: “They’re willing to literally say and do anything that their new masters call on them to do to protect their position. Once Obama rams these ‘kids’ in, gives them their Obamaphone, enrolls them in Obamacare, puts them in a public school, pays for their housing, pays for their food…these people will do anything that their leaders call on them to do and I do mean anything.”

Alan Keyes wondered if Obama, whom he thinks wants to become America’s “Führer,” was “importing” immigrants “in order to facilitate what I think is an overthrow of our Constitution.”

WorldNetDaily’s resident health “expert” Elizabeth Lee Vliet claimed that the government would use a “flood of illegals” who carry exotic diseases to “overwhelm and collapse the economic and social systems, in order to replace them with a ‘new socialist order’ under federal control.”

8) Obama’s Atheist/Islamic/Canadian/Alien Army

Building off the birther conspiracy theory that Obama is not a U.S.-born citizen and the general right-wing belief that he is not a real American, several conservative activists believe that the president will use foreign forces, outside of just immigrants and health care workers, to oppress Americans.

According to Bill Federer, a Religious Right “historian,” the Arab Spring was designed by nefarious forces who wanted to create a surge in Muslim refugees who would then settle in the U.S. in order to establish Islamic “sleeper cells.” Soon, these sleeper cells would “get a signal to have Ferguson riots in malls across America,” which would give Obama the justification to “restore order” by setting up a “militarized dictatorship.” Obama, Federer warned, could follow in the footsteps of Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Pol Pot in killing millions of Christians.

Federer cited a man named Avi Lipkin, who apparently heard from his wife, who heard from an unspecified Arabic-language broadcast, about a plot to bring millions of Muslim refugees into the country in order to bring about Sharia law. Lipkin alleged that Obama was “going to bring in 50 to 100 million Muslims” and settle them in national parks and “lands confiscated by Agenda 21” — a sustainable development initiative that is at the center of its very own right-wing conspiracy theory — ultimately forcing America to “surrender its Christianity” in the face of a new “Muslim majority.” Then, Obama would establish a “dictatorship” … with the help of “the Masons, the Illuminati [and] the Trilateral Commission.”

Lipkin and Federer, however, don’t hold a candle to Jim Garrow, a right-wing activist who believes that Obama tried to kill 300 million Americans with an EMP attack for the sake of enriching George Soros and giving him the chance to live in a luxurious bunker underneath the White House. Garrow also believes that Obama will try to improve his poll numbers by claiming that he is able to communicate with aliens, but if they plummet any further and Americans start to revolt, then Obama will “ask [Canadian Prime Minister Stephen] Harper to send troops into America to help quell the rioting and vice versa.”

Garrow shared his very plausible anti-Obama conspiracy theories with far-right radio hosts including Wiles, Rush and Jones. Garrow told Jones in detail about Obama’s EMP plot, which he said was only stopped as a result of divine intervention, along with the president’s failed plan to detonate a nuclear device near Charleston, South Carolina. Fortunately, the nuke, Garrow said, was detonated safely off the coast by heroic military officials. He cited the deaths of dolphins (who were likely killed by the BP oil spill) as proof.

Jones talked to another “real source” about the need to “brace for a nuclear attack in South Carolina,” who alleged that Charleston was the target because of the presence of U.S. submarines: “This is a false flag operation, a major false flag, that is about to occur because if they take out our naval base in Charleston, they will cripple about one-third of our fleet ballistic missile submarine force.”

“Everything they are doing is like trying to set America up,” Jones replied, wondering if “Obama is like a triple agent of the globalists, we know that, and they are maneuvering America towards a set-up to destroy us and then Homeland Security will then detonate nukes in all of our bases as an inside sneak attack.”

“This ultimately reeks of yet another false flag being orchestrated by the United States government in order to send us into war,” Jones said in another commentary about the matter. “I just wish to God that this wasn’t happening,” he said.

This is the same Alex Jones who launched Jade Helm 15 into the GOP mainstream and led to such a fear that the governor of Texas ordered the National Guard to monitor the U.S. military during the drill.

Of course, when one conspiracy theory fails to materialize, radio hosts like Alex Jones just move on to the next one, and then eventually, Republican politicians just move along with them.

As Rick Santorum found out, among the party’s base — as many of one-third of whom think Obama will invade Texas — at least some people think that it is an established fact that “Obama tried to blow up a nuke in Charleston.”

Last year, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi sued Glenn Beck after Beck spent the weeks following the Boston Marathon bombing openly accusing Alharbi, who was injured in the attack, of being an al Qaeda control agent and the "money man" behind the terrorist bombing. Long after Alharbi had been cleared by law enforcement authorities, Beck spent program after program insisting that the United States government was covering up the truth and was protecting Alharbi at the behest of Saudi Arabia.
