Dinesh D'Souza To Join Bikers Event With Anti-Gay, Anti-Muslim Extremists

Belinda Bee, the right-wing organizer who hopes to remove President Obama from office as part of her God-ordained mission to save America, is organizing another bikers’ rally in Washington, D.C., to mark the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Bee told anti-Muslim activist Tom Tentro last week that she founded the 2 Million Bikers to DC as a response to the Million Muslim March, which was actually just a tiny demonstration put on by a 9/11 truther group.

She claims in promotional materials that she has lined up sponsorships from Budweiser, Harley-Davidson and Breitbart.com and that the event will feature speeches from Dinesh D’Souza, anti-Muslim activist John Guandolo and James David Manning, the extremist anti-gay pastor of the Harlem “Stone Homos” church.

Bee’s group, however, says on its Facebook page that while Manning is still listed as a speaker, “Pastor Manning will not be able to attend or speak We [sic] will miss him & his wonderful speeches that is for sure!”

At an anti-Obama rally organized by Larry Klayman last year, Bee proposed ignoring all but the first ten amendments to the Constitution and called on supporters to resist the twin evils of “Sharia” and “perversion.”

D’Souza seems excited for the event.

Fringe Pastor Wonders If Michael Sam Will Marry A 9-Year-Old Boy

Everyone’s favorite insanely bigoted pastor James David Manning believes that same-sex marriage, or as he refers to it, “legalized perverted orgies,” will pave the way for child-marriage when “someone like Michael Sam or others” legally weds a 9-year-old boy.

Manning shares his theory in a video posted on his website today:

Manning is also upset that the New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the latest “victim” of “the power of sodomy” that is “spreading like wildfire.”

“St. Patrick’s Day Parade has fallen to this wickedness spreading across America,” Manning said, even calling Cardinal Timothy Dolan the “sodomite leader.”

Ted Nugent Loves Insane Pastor James David Manning's Racist Rant

What a surprise that Ted Nugent is a fan of the extremist Harlem pastor who has made a name for himself with his insane anti-Obama rants and calls to kill gay people. Nugent posted excerpts of a James David Manning sermon on his Facebook page today, commenting (in all caps, of course), “TRUER LOVE THERE HAS NEVER BEEN.”

“You niggas are crazy,” Manning says about black voters who supported Obama in the sermon posted by Nugent. “We’re not going to ever get anywhere until we get in the mind of a black man, he doesn’t think correctly, he can be doctor, he can be an astrophysicist, the nigga ain’t got no sense.”

“The worst thing that ever happened to South Africa was when they gave it to Nelson Mandela and black folk,” he added. “Black folk don’t know how to run no nation.”

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/7/14

  • Rand Paul first said he fled an encounter with a Dreamer activist because he had to go to an interview, but now he claims it was because he’s “not interested in being filmed and berated by people who broke the law and are here illegally to try and convince me about policy.” 
  • Tea Party groups join the purported Democratic conspiracy to impeach Obama!
  • Anyone surprised that the Religious Right movie “Persecuted” is now sponsoring Todd Starnes’ commentaries? 
  • God told Cliven Bundy to “disarm” the government so we don’t “face these same guns in a civil war,” says Cliven Bundy

Paranoia-Rama: Conservatives Getting Persecuted, Schools Peer Pressuring Kids To Be Gay, Obama Taking Guns

Apparently, the most oppressed class in America today is conservative politicians, whom people are horribly persecuting by failing to promote their books or demand they run for president. It is even worse for the everyday right-wing activists, who seem to be living under constant threats of lynching.

Peter LaBarbera Says Men Are Gay Because They Just Want A 'Cheap Orgasm,' Obama 'Obsessed' With Homosexuality

James David Manning, the New York pastor who has warned of "Obama's homo-demons" and posted a "Stone Homos" sign on his church, hosted Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality on his radio show this week.

LaBarbera, who has devoted his entire life to combating gay rights, accused President Obama of being "obsessed" with homosexuality: "He's pandering to such a degree that it's like there is a spiritual force behind this, because who can explain the obsession that Barack Obama and his administration have for this issue."

LaBarbera also maintained that men are gay because they are too afraid of marrying a woman and having kids, as a "real man" would, and instead just want "the cheap orgasm."

"Homosexuality is robbing the potential husbands of women in the black community, and that's applicable to all women. I think homosexuality is one sense offers to men, if I can say this on your program, it offers the cheap orgasm. It's a lot harder to be a man, a real man and have a family, court a woman, marry a woman, have children, raise a family."

The anti-LGBT activist also said parents "have to start inoculating kids" against homosexuality and the "evil" of same-sex marriage. If someone tells them they are gay, LaBarbera advises, one should respond by asking: "Are you really? Because I don't think God wants homosexuality."

Dave Daubenmire Will 'Bury Racism' At Gettysburg, Regrets The Union Won The Civil War

Anti-gay activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire and pastor James David Manning, who recently posted signs reading “Jesus would stone homos” and “Obama has released homo demons,” are organizing an event to “bury racism” at Gettysburg.

In his column last week, Daubenmire said “an argument can be made that the wrong side won the [Civil War]” since “government tyranny has exploded since the battle over states' rights was lost.”

“It has been said that the Gettysburg Address was the most famous speech in American History, but that it would have carried more weight if President Lincoln was referencing the brave Confederate soldiers who were fighting against big-government tyranny,” he added. “Has there ever been a more Christian general than Robert E. Lee?”

We are going to Gettysburg to bury racism.

My friend Pastor James David Manning is a minister in Harlem who happens to have black skin. I had the opportunity to share the podium with Pastor Manning five years ago and immediately felt a kinship with him. My wife and I have visited his church, spoke from his pulpit, and locked arms with him in the battle against darkness. It is an honor to call him my friend.



Nearly a year ago Pastor Manning shared with me his desire to go to Gettysburg and bury racism. He shared with me the vision to join black Americans and white Americans together in a RACIAL RECONCILIATION AND HEALING OF THE RACES. It immediately bore witness with my Spirit as something we needed to do.



A study of the war will show that the fight was over states [sic] rights more than slavery, and an argument can be made that the wrong side won the war. Government tyranny has exploded since the battle over states' rights was lost. It has been said that the Gettysburg Address was the most famous speech in American History, but that it would have carried more weight if President Lincoln was referencing the brave Confederate soldiers who were fighting against big-government tyranny. Has there ever been a more Christian general than Robert E. Lee?

Last year, Daubenmire year explained his white pride and sadness that “white people, for whatever reason, have stopped producing children.”

Manning also introduced the event with a video message where he warned that President Obama is a “demon” who has brought “great turmoil” to America.

“I want you to know that the Lord is speaking to me now and saying to you that if you will turn now and rid America of Obama and his racism and all of his cronyism and all of the destruction and demonic spirits that calls homosexuals to walk and dance and seduce with impunity, if you would turn now and fight, it would add more credibility—because you don’t need a prophet to see that America’s in sad shape,” he said.

In another message, Manning said black people need to realize that they have “never built a bridge, never built a boat, never made a comb, only ran along footpaths in Africa, never built a highway, never did anything of note, never wrote a song or a book.”

He also said the “fag hypocrite Negro” is “leading black people to the slaughter.”

Paranoia-Rama: Obama's Homo Demons, President Satan & Arizona Penis Cakes

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Apparently, Satan is going to install the next president, use gay people to destroy the black community and take over the world to bring about the Last Days. But at least we can enjoy “penis cakes” before the world comes to an end.

5) Obamacare Race War

Just as Ted Nugent isn’t actually sorry for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel,” the National Rifle Association board member and Republican surrogate also isn’t backing down from his statements likening President Obama to the Nazis.

When conservative talk show host Dennis Miller told Nugent he didn’t buy his Nazi comparison, Nugent insisted that the president is using the IRS and the health care reform law to spark a race war “like the brownshirts.” Media Matters grabbed the clip:

4) Satan Will Put A Witch In The White House

The Trinity Broadcasting Network considers Kim Clement a prophet, and so should you! The TBN host recently prophesied that Satan will “put a witch in the White House” who will advance the demonic spirit of “Jezebel,” and can only be stopped by a socialism-slaying politician.

3) Penis Cakes On The Way

Tea Party Nation head Judson Phillips is aggrieved that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed her state’s ‘right-to-discriminate’ bill, a decision which he believes will lead to “tyranny,” “fascism” and “slavery.” In fact, he believes that bakers will now be forced to bake penis cakes:

Should a devote baker be required to create a cake for a homosexual wedding that has a giant phallic symbol on it or should a baker be required to create pastries for a homosexual wedding in the shape of genitallia [sic]? Or should a photographer be required to photograph a homosexual wedding where the participants decide they want to be nude or engage in sexual behavior?

We’re not sure what sort of weddings Phillips is used to attending, but we wish we had been invited.

2) The World Has Gone Gay

Scott Lively has been on a roll lately after launching a new anti-gay group, insisting that his fight against gay rights is literally a life-or-death battle against Satan. During an interview with Janet Mefferd where he explained why he believes LGBT equality is triggering the coming of the End Times, Lively said that there should be a “revolution” to defeat the socialist “conspiracy” aimed at “homosexualizing the whole world.”

1) Beware Obama’s ‘Homo Demons’

Far-far-right pastor James David Manning is at it again, this time hailing anti-gay leaders in Uganda, Gambia and Nigeria for resisting “this son of Satan Barack Hussein Obama” and his “anti-integrity, anti-life, anti-humanity, anti-universal understanding, anti-DNA” gay rights agenda.

Manning said that the decisions of Jason Collins and Michael Sam to come out of the closet are proof that “Obama has released these demons particularly upon the black males, this homosexual demon, hoping to influence as many black males to subscribe to ideas that are [as] homosexual, perverted, LGBT as possible.”

“Obama has released the homo demons on the black man; look out black woman, a white homo may take your man.” He said that under Obama’s direction, black men “are being scooped up by white homos,” thus destroying the black family.

The white homo is now moving into the black neighborhoods, looking for black men that have been converted into homosexuality. Black woman let me say something to you: You will have a very hard time competing against a white homosexual male, he’s usually got money, a white homo usually has an American Express card, he usually has an opportunity at the theatre, homos love the theatre, they love to go out to dinner parties, they love that kind of a thing. As a black woman you can’t compete not only with the financial strength of a white homo, black sister, this is devastating, black people need to rise up en masse and recognize the utter destruction that Obama is going in to destroy the black family with his homosexual statements and release of demons that he has done.

Manning: Violent Revolution Against The Government Is Inevitable

Last week, conspiracy theorist and End Times radio host Rick Wiles informed his audience that he would be stepping away from the microphone and his daily hosting duties for the near future because God had told him to focus his energy on creating a television studio through which he could better promote his dire warnings that the world is doomed.

In the interim, the radio show would be anchored by like-minded guest hosts while continuing to feature exactly the sorts of guests we have come to expect from Wiles' program, such as crackpot preacher James David Manning, who told host Rev. Dr. David Berman yesterday that violent revolution against the US government is inevitable because public schools are indoctrinating kids with homosexuality and teaching them to rebel against the church, which is why so many people have begun stockpiling weapons:

When you reach a moral crisis and a political crisis such as what we have here now, the only way you're going to break the gridlock is that there's got to be some sort of a revolt. That's how our great nation came to be in the first place. I think Thomas Jefferson said that the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of both tyrants and patriots from time to time.

Right now, there is no glimmer of hope that the political class are going to be able to take care of what's going on in our nation, both morally and spiritually. In fact, they're advancing us toward the kingdom of Hell.

You mentioned something a few moments ago that's important; our schools - the federal school system that has no right to be in existence in the first place - is indoctrinating our children with this same-sex business and this sexual identity, they're going after our children, who are very innocent to this process, and they are teaching them to revolt against us. They're teaching them to revolt against the church, against the Constitution, against the nation and so, at some point in time, you're going to see a revolt.

One of the things that has demonstrated that, if you watch the amount of gun sales that have been taking place over the last couple of years, people have stocked up on ammunition. People are not stocking up because they just want to have weapons; they're stocking up because, at some point in time, it's going to happen, Doctor, it's going to happen. There's going to be a revolt.

Paranoia-Rama: This Week In Right-Wing Lunacy - 11/8/13

RWW's Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

This week, we learn more about President Obama’s secret gay past and Michelle Obama’s poor spiritual housekeeping, find out the real reason for Terry McAuliffe’s victory in Virginia, and are duly warned about the consequences of health care coverage and U.N. treaties.

5. Obamacare Will Force People to “Suffer and Potentially Die”

Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert, one of Congress’ most creative conspiracy theorists, told the residents of a nursing home in Texas this week that the Affordable Care Act would cut Medicare benefits, causing people to “suffer and potentially die.”

Gohmert’s claim that the ACA “cut $716 billion from Medicare,” repeated frequently by Mitt Romney in his presidential campaign last year, glosses over the fact that the cuts in costs – also recommended by Rep. Paul Ryan – would not affect Medicare benefits.

4. The United Nations Will Snatch Homeschoolers and Kids With Glasses

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee revived consideration of the United Nations Conventions on Persons With Disabilities this week, a year after a right-wing scare campaign managed to prevent the Senate from ratifying the treaty.

Taking the lead in the effort to sink the treaty was Michael Farris, director of the Home School Legal Defense Association, who claimed that U.S. ratification of the treaty would allow the U.N. to “get control” of children with glasses or ADHD and even lead to the deaths of children with disabilities. Invited to testify at this week’s hearing, Farris tried to convince senators that ratifying the treaty – which is based on laws already in place in the United States – would in fact lead to an American ban homeschooling. His only evidence for this fear was a completely unrelated immigration case .

The many right-wing conspiracy theories about the CRPD have been handily debunked by the U.S. International Council on Disabilities, as well as by former Republican senators Bill Frist and Bob Dole.

3. Michelle Obama Invited Demons Into The White House

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer was shocked to learn that First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a White House event this to celebrate Diwali.

By celebrating the Hindu festival, Fischer warned, the first lady was inviting “demons into the White House,” necessitating a “spiritual cleanse” of the building after Obama leaves office.

Fischer neglected to mention that George W. and Laura Bush had hosted the very same event. He did, however, later in the week provide a helpful how-to on how to rid a home of demonic spirits in case it ever comes to that.

2. Voter Fraud Won the Election in Virginia

Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli thinks that President Obama won reelection through organized voter fraud , so it’s no surprise that some of his supporters were ready to cry “voter fraud” when he lost the gubernatorial election on Tuesday to Democrat Terry McAuliffe.

A full week before election day, Virginia conservative commentator Dean Chambers laid out how he predicted McAuliffe would “steal” the election through voter fraud. Meanwhile, Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber spent Election Day tweeting about how Cuccinelli would need to win by 7 points “to get within the margin of Democrat fraud.” And after the results came in, the white nationalist site VDARE claimed that McAuliffe must have relied on “black voter fraud” because it was not “plausible” that African-Americans would “turn out for New York Irish American Pol running for Governor with the same enthusiasm that they voted for a Black for President.”

In 2008, Virginia officials prosecuted 39 cases of voter fraud out of 3.7 million votes cast, none of which involved voter impersonation, the alleged target of Virginia’s pending voter ID law.

1. Obama Procured Cocaine Through Older White, Male Lovers

We already knew that during his student days President Obama was married to his male Pakistani roommate, the union from which he still wears a secret gay Muslim wedding ring , but we learned today via anti-gay activist Scott Lively that the president’s secrets go much deeper.

Lively linked on his website to an interview between crackpot preacher James David Manning and a woman named Mia Marie Pope, who claims to have been a classmate of President Obama's back in Hawaii in the 1970s.

Pope recalled how the future president was “very much within sort of the gay community” and “was having sex with these older white guys” in order to procure “cocaine to be able to freebase.”

Fondly Remembering Obama's Days As A Gay, Cocaine-Using Hustler

While visiting Scott Lively's "Defend The Family" website this morning, we spotted a rather intriguing headline posted in the "Latest News" section reading "Claim: Obama was a 'gay' teen favored by older white sugar-daddies."

Obviously, we were professionally required to check that out and what we found was an interview conducted by crackpot preacher James David Manning with a woman named Mia Marie Pope, who claims to have been a classmate of President Obama's back in Hawaii in the 1970s when he was a gay, cocaine using foreigner.

"He very much was within sort of the gay community," Pope said. "And we new Barry as just common knowledge that girls were never anything that he ever was interested in ... He would get with these older white gay men, and this is how we just pretty much had the impression that that's how he was procuring his cocaine. In other words, he was having sex with these older white guys and that's how he was getting this cocaine to be able to freebase":

Right Wing Leftovers - 9/9/13

  • Despite the fact that Home Depot says it hasn't changed its policies, the American Family Association continues to insist that its boycott was a success.
  • Regent University President Carlos Campo has resigned unexpectedly and rather mysteriously.
  • Mat Staver says the "gay agenda" is all about "absolute dominance, and not only dominance, but forcing people to affirm homosexuality as normal."
  • Richard Land says pretty much the same thing: "The gay and lesbian and transgender folks don’t want to live and let live. They want their behavior affirmed as normal and healthy, and they want anyone who disagrees with that for whatever reason to be ostracized to the level of Klansmen."
  • Finally, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire will be joining his good friend James David Manning for a rally, which does not surprise us at all.

Insane, Even By Birther Standards

We've written about James David Manning, pastor of Atlah World Missionary Church, once or twice before noting that even by the standards of the Birther movement, Manning is completely off the deep end:

Manning came to public attention in the 2008 presidential election after ATLAH posted several sermons of his that were harshly critical of Democratic candidate Barack Obama on the website YouTube. Among other accusations, he called Obama a "good House Negro" in one sermon while in another he referred to Obama as "trash" due to circumstances surrounding his mixed race heritage and accused him of being a "pimp" (pimping "white women and black women") and "long-legged mack daddy," and an "emissary of the devil", citing the viral video "I Got a Crush... on Obama". He stated that Obama "has the cadence of an Islamic person,"and he called Obama's mother "trash" for becoming pregnant by a black man out of wedlock. Manning revisited this latter issue during a press conference at the National Press Club on 8 December 2008: "Generally the most noble of white society choose not to intercourse sexually with African men. So it's usually the trashier ones who make their determinations that they're going to have sex."

Manning defended his sermons in an interview on Fox News, saying that "we also have to talk about his character."He compared TV personality Oprah Winfrey, who supported Obama's campaign, to the Whore of Babylon, the "Queen of the Universe", and an Antichrist.

For the last several days, Manning and his supporters have been hosting a "trial" of President Obama [PDF], claiming that he never attended Columbia University but was actually a CIA agenda who used it as cover so he could go to Pakistan to provide money, weapons, and logistics to the Mujahideen:

The only reason I even found out about this is because I came across an interview with one of the participants discussing how Alan Keyes was supposed to participate but then backed out because of his fears that his own Birther lawsuits could be compromised by attending. 

And that is not even the craziest part.  Just try and follow this exchange between Sharon Rondeau, the interviewer, and Miki Booth, who is running for the U.S. House seat in Oklahoma:

SHARON: Do you know how Dr. Manning or any of the witnesses prove that Obama did not attend Columbia? Can he actually prove that he was in Pakistan or wherever he was instead of at Columbia?

MIKI: I don’t know how we prove it, but the only thing that makes sense is that it’s all the CIA. That would explain why all the records are scrubbed. There’s one thing that they can’t hide, and that’s the Social Security numbers. Again, how do you prove that he used those to launder money?

SHARON: Is the theory that the CIA gave Obama a new identity?

MIKI: Absolutely.

SHARON: Did they actually assign him all of these social security numbers, or do you think he did that on his own?

MIKI: Again, if the CIA was behind it, they would be involved in every single aspect of it, because the money that he was getting went to help the Mujahadeen fight the Russian invasion. Here’s another really interesting thing: the story is out there that he attended Patrice Lamumba University. About three weeks ago, I finally found the website for Patrice Lamumba, and it said, “Distinguished Alumni,” and on the list was “Barry Soetoro.”

SHARON: Really?

MIKI: Yes. And it took you to the Wikipedia page all about “President” Barack Obama and his history.

SHARON: Could that have been set up as a hoax?

MIKI: That was set up as a red herring to throw everyone off the trail of the Pakistan connection. Anyway, I saw it, and they mentioned that, and someone might have testified about it earlier in the trial. However, it was brought up again today, and I remember when I first heard about that, it was right after Rev. Manning put out the word about the trial, and right after that, he did a YouTube video where he said, “They’re lying. They’re going to say that he was actually in Russia attending Patrice Lamumba University” to throw us off. He also said, “You watch; they’re not going to deny it; they’re going to let you think that that’s where he was, but don’t fall for it. He was really in Pakistan.”

SHARON: If the CIA gave Obama a new identity or identities, why was he not stopped when he put his hat in the ring to run for president? Has anyone discussed how he got as far as he did if all his records were scrubbed?

MIKI: We can probably find out. I heard that he signed an Executive Order to seal all of his records.

SHARON: He did; I recall reading about it shortly after his “coronation.”

MIKI: So no one can get his Punahou or other records. The ones that they absolutely don’t want anybody seeing are those that were scrubbed such as the passport records which involved Brennan, who worked for that company which worked with the CIA. They have the means, the wherewithal, to be able to scrub those passport records, and it’s known and reported about that breach where all three, McCain, Clinton and Obama’s records were breached. So the theory is that the late Lt. Quarles Harris knew something and he was supposedly working with the investigator, but which investigators we don’t know; perhaps just the local cops. And then he ended up being murdered. The only person who had a key to open that door was snuffed out. So that was discussed, and this is material that we had already heard. But again, there is the CIA connection. There’s Brennan, and now what’s Brennan doing now? So it’s just all too cozy.

SHARON: No one could have known 20 years ago that Obama was going to run for president. Is there a theory that he was recruited by the CIA because he could speak the language?

MIKI: Yes.

SHARON: Why would there have been a need to provide Obama with a fake past? Others have worked undercover for the CIA but the CIA perhaps doesn’t go to these lengths to hide it. What is your theory about that?

MIKI: Well, tomorrow they’re calling a witness who is an ex-KGB agent who wants to talk and feels that his life is in danger and he may as well get it out there. But getting back to the CIA, we know that the United States was financing the pushback against the Russian invasion. We were working with them and gave them money and guns. So where do you find these people to recruit to get them to do that? You look for someone who will fit, with a Muslim background who can speak at least a dialect of their language. And where do they recruit these people? They find these loners like Barack Obama at Occidental who are on a foreign-student status (again, those records were scrubbed), but he probably held a passport under the name of “Barry Soetoro” from Indonesia.

SHARON: Has any evidence come out about that yet that you’ve heard?

MIKI: No. There again, those records were either scrubbed…it’s all hidden. And it’s only the CIA that can do all of this. No matter how much they did, things have still leaked out. Almost everything that we’re hearing now we already knew. It had been leaked out, or we knew about it, and they couldn’t hide that. But wherever they could hide stuff, they did. But I think what happened was that they never expected that he would run for president. First he was a state senator in Illinois, and he used thug techniques to knock off the competition.

Drake Lifts Call For Prayers For Obama's Death

Back in June, "Birther" Wiley Drake issued a call for imprecatory prayers against Barack Obama, asking God to kill him. 

Now, Drake has backed off of that call ... at least until Obama can be tried and convicted of treason:

A former Southern Baptist Convention officer who made headlines in June when he said on national radio that he was praying for Barack Obama to die now says he wants to see the president live long enough to stand trial for treason.

Wiley Drake, pastor of First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, Calif., issued a press release Nov. 19 calling for an end to "imprecatory prayer" -- words of judgment from the Book of Psalms prayed back to God, directed toward Obama.

Drake said he is now "calling for all of God's people and prayer warriors to cease the imprecatory prayer, and pray for Mr. Obama's protection until he can be properly tried for treason."

Drake attributed his change of heart to "spiritual counsel" of James David Manning, pastor at ATLAH World Missionary Church in New York, contained in a 16 1/2-minute video recorded Nov. 18.

"I have asked men everywhere please do you no harm," Manning said in remarks he addressed to "Barack Hussein the long-legged mack daddy Obama." According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, "mack daddy" is slang for a slick womanizer or conspicuously successful pimp.

"I do not want to see anyone attempt, dream about, think about or ever discuss assassinating you," Manning continued. "It is most important to you and to my savior Jesus that you live, and that you live a long life, but that you live that we might be able to bring you to trial. You see if someone does you harm, and you are not able to be brought to trial, then we lose the opportunity of proving our statements that you are not the president of the United States of America. You are not. You are an illegal alien, a usurper."

I guess this sudden connection to a Birther-extraordinaire such as Manning shouldn't come as much of a surprise seeing as just last week Alan Keyes, who was Drake's presidential running mate in 2008, also announced his agreement with his views.

In 2004, Alan Keyes Was a Republican Senate Candidate

It is becoming increasingly clear that Alan Keyes has reached the outer limits of the right-wing fringe movement, which is saying something considering that he had always pretty resided on the fringes to begin with and has only been heading further out  since the election of Barack Obama.

But his latest WorldNetDaily column defending Rev. James David Manning, pastor of Atlah World Missionary Church, really is remarkable, even for him.

Normally, I'd post some of Manning's bizarre rantings here to give you a sense of who he is, but his account has been suspended from YouTube, so I'll simply point you to Wikipedia:

Manning came to public attention in the 2008 presidential election after ATLAH posted several sermons of his that were harshly critical of Democratic candidate Barack Obama on the website YouTube. Among other accusations, he called Obama a "good House Negro" in one sermon while in another he referred to Obama as "trash" due to circumstances surrounding his mixed race heritage and accused him of being a "pimp" (pimping "white women and black women") and "long-legged mack daddy," and an "emissary of the devil", citing the viral video "I Got a Crush... on Obama". He stated that Obama "has the cadence of an Islamic person,"and he called Obama's mother "trash" for becoming pregnant by a black man out of wedlock. Manning revisited this latter issue during a press conference at the National Press Club on 8 December 2008: "Generally the most noble of white society choose not to intercourse sexually with African men. So it's usually the trashier ones who make their determinations that they're going to have sex."

Manning defended his sermons in an interview on Fox News, saying that "we also have to talk about his character."He compared TV personality Oprah Winfrey, who supported Obama's campaign, to the Whore of Babylon, the "Queen of the Universe", and an Antichrist.

According to Manning, one of his recent video postings prompted a visit from the Department of Homeland Security ... and it is not hard to see why, considering that somewhere around the five minute mark, Manning begins screaming:

You gotta clean house. You got to take Obama to trial, put him in jail for the rest of his life, or hang him.  Shoot him on the Washington ... first try him, find him guilty, and the punishment for treason is a death sentence. And then clean the rest out, go get Hillary, go get John McCain, go get George Bush, got get Dick Cheney too, get 'em all.  And then we can start over again.

So what does Keyes' have to say about Manning, who is seemingly calling for the execution of several current and former high-ranking government officials? That he's right:

I have followed Rev. Manning's broadcasts and statements for some time. He is forthright and outspoken in his religious and political views. He speaks with a boldness that is surely offensive to people who believe that civility requires silence even in the face of the stratagems of deception now being perpetrated against the American people. But I see nothing that he has said or done that warrants interference with his freedom of speech. Both YouTube's actions and those of the federal and New York City officials who visited his church appear to be in clear violation of his constitutional rights and part of an effort to intimidate him and others who are outspoken critics of the coup d'état being perpetrated by the Obama faction and its fellow travelers among the elites, who are working to accomplish the overthrow of our constitutional republic.

The repression of Rev. Manning's views is an intolerable assault on the constitutional freedom of every American. However disagreeable his voice may be to others, including the present occupant of the White House, his right to voice his criticisms is clear and undeniable. So is his right to seek redress of grievances that threaten the sovereignty of the American people and of every American as a member of the sovereign body of the people. Respect for these rights is one of the bedrock prerequisites of government of, by and for the people. Efforts to thwart and repress their exercise constitute a clear and present danger to the liberty of all Americans. Like the darkening skies and rising winds that announce the landfall of a hurricane, this move to silence Rev. Manning ominously foreshadows the next phase of the elite assault against the Constitution and people of the United States.

Belinda Bee, the right-wing organizer who hopes to remove President Obama from office as part of her God-ordained mission to save America, is organizing another bikers’ rally in Washington, D.C., to mark the September 11, 2001 attacks. Bee told anti-Muslim activist Tom Tentro last week that she founded the 2 Million Bikers to DC as a response to the Million Muslim March, which was actually just a tiny demonstration put on by a 9/11 truther group. She claims in promotional materials that she has lined up sponsorships from Budweiser, Harley-Davidson and Breitbart.com and that the event... MORE >

Everyone’s favorite insanely bigoted pastor James David Manning believes that same-sex marriage, or as he refers to it, “legalized perverted orgies,” will pave the way for child-marriage when “someone like Michael Sam or others” legally weds a 9-year-old boy. Manning shares his theory in a video posted on his website today: Manning is also upset that the New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the latest “victim” of “the power of sodomy” that is “spreading like wildfire.” “St. Patrick’s Day Parade has fallen to...

What a surprise that Ted Nugent is a fan of the extremist Harlem pastor who has made a name for himself with his insane anti-Obama rants and calls to kill gay people. Nugent posted excerpts of a James David Manning sermon on his Facebook page today, commenting (in all caps, of course), “TRUER LOVE THERE HAS NEVER BEEN.” “You niggas are crazy,” Manning says about black voters who supported Obama in the sermon posted by Nugent. “We’re not going to ever get anywhere until we get in the mind of a black man, he doesn’t think correctly, he can be doctor,...

Rand Paul first said he fled an encounter with a Dreamer activist because he had to go to an interview, but now he claims it was because he’s “not interested in being filmed and berated by people who broke the law and are here illegally to try and convince me about policy.”  Tea Party groups join the purported Democratic conspiracy to impeach Obama! House Republicans finally raise the white flag in their war against the long-defunct group ACORN. Anyone surprised that the Religious Right movie “Persecuted” is now sponsoring Todd Starnes... MORE >

Apparently, the most oppressed class in America today is conservative politicians, whom people are horribly persecuting by failing to promote their books or demand they run for president. It is even worse for the everyday right-wing activists, who seem to be living under constant threats of lynching. MORE >
