Anti-Immigrant Activist: 'Child Rapists' Coming To The US Because They’ll Get Off Easier In The Justice System
Earlier this month, Tamara Scott, a conservative lobbyist and Republican national committeewoman from Iowa, invited anti-immigration activist Jim Simpson onto her weekly radio program to discuss Donald Trump’s claims that Mexican immigrants are rapists, which Simpson heartily agreed with.
Simpson, who recently authored a report for the Center for Security Policy on how communists and Islamists are using immigration to destroy America, acknowledged that immigrants may be fleeing failing states, but added that “many” of them come to the U.S. because a fairer justice system means “they can have an easier time committing crime over here.”
“Many of the people that cross the border illegally do so because they’re people that that country just doesn’t want, and they’re coming over here because there are greener pastures over here, they can have an easier time committing crime over here,” he explained.
“We have a legal system that is much more favorable to the defendant than, let’s say, Mexico, where a lot of these child rapists wouldn’t last a week in a Mexico prison, and so they come here instead. And that’s a big part of the problem. We’re attracting all kinds of very, very bad people by our loose immigration policies and our open borders policies being promoted by this, as far as I’m concerned, treasonous president.”
Scott responded that even if most immigrants weren’t child rapists, as Simpson alleged, lenience toward undocumented immigrants would still be a betrayal of the founding fathers, because “we put blood on the line to get the liberty we have, so we can’t allow others not to do the same in their country or we bring those wars here.”
“Here’s the deal,” she said. “We have the freedoms and liberties we have in this country because we allowed our forefathers, our ancestors, they fought, they risked it all, they gave oftentimes the ultimate price to ensure the unalienable rights that we have endowed by our Creator. And the fact that this country was built upon that very premise, that we recognized a Providence, a Supreme Being, mentioned four times in our Declaration in one way or another, we honored the God who we felt gave us the protection to start this country and to bless this country. So we put blood on the line to get the liberty we have, so we can’t allow others not to do the same in their country or we bring those wars here.”
After praising Sarah Palin as a great leader who may one day serve in a Trump White House, Donald Trump told “Palin Update” host Kevin Scholla yesterday that climate change is a myth and dismissed concerns that it poses a security threat.
“The real climate change is going to be nuclear climate change if we’re not smart and tough and very, very careful because that’s a big danger and that’s a real danger,” Trump said. “I think Obama just said that the biggest threat that we have on the planet today is climate change, and a lot of people are saying, did he really say that? We have people chopping off heads and he’s talking about climate change. I call it weather. I call it weather. You know, the weather changes.”
Trump continued his explanation by ranting about weather forecasts on the news: “You look back and they were calling it global cooling and global warming and global everything, but if you look back and the biggest tornados were in the 1890s, the biggest hurricanes were in the 1860s and 1870s. It’s weather. You’re going to have bad weather. So often I watch the evening newscasts and every time there is a rainstorm some place, and then they wonder why they don’t do well, they say, ‘It’s raining here and it’s raining there,’ usually leading the program. I call it weather. Maybe there’s a little bit of change, I don’t happen to believe it’s manmade.”
Anti-gay activists have been reeling ever since the Supreme Court issued its ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide. In response, David Barton and Rick Green interviewed Dr. Everett Piper of Oklahoma Wesleyan University on "WallBuilders Live" today, seeking his advice about how Christians should now go about arguing against gay marriage in the face growing support for marriage equality..
Piper, Green and Barton were all convinced that they have truth and logic on their side when, in reality, their arguments were little more than straw men that are capable of convincing only people who already shared their convictions.
For instance, all three men were all extremely impressed with their argument that sex does not equal love, which is the sort of thing that only works on people who refuse to realize that gay couples can actually love one another.
Piper explained that the best way to combat the "love wins" argument is simply to point out that "sex and love aren't the same thing."
"This isn't about love, it's about sex," he said, "so call a spade a spade. Define your terms. The debate in the culture right now is a debate of what sexual acts is acceptable, it's not a debate about love, so distinguish between the two. There are lots of people I love that I don't have sex with, nor should I have sex with. Love and sex are not synonymous, period!"
Gay sex, of course, was decriminalized over a decade ago, so obviously the marriage movement was not about seeking permission to have sex, but rather about committed couples wanting to express their love and have their families recognized and protected by the law.
But despite the obvious absurdity of Piper's argument, Green was convinced.
"That's good," he cooed. "You're spot-on, brother."
Barton was equally impressed.
"That's a great point. Love and sex are not the same thing," he said. "You don't have sex with everyone you love and because you have sex with someone doesn't mean you love them and so we've given away that argument. Sex equals love? No, it does not. It never has. It doesn't with prostitution ... That's a great point."
The fact that these men cannot even comprehend the possibility that gay couples might be having sex because they are in love does not bode particularly well for their efforts to win the battle against the idea that "love wins."
Yesterday, Donald Trump appeared on “The Palin Update,” a show dedicated to all things Palin. After Trump hailed Palin as a “tough and smart” leader who bravely stood up to “disgusting lies,” host Kevin Scholla asked the GOP presidential candidate, “If there is a Trump administration, could you see picking up the phone, giving the governor a call and picking her brain on some things, or perhaps having her along in some official capacity.”
“I’d love that,” Trump replied. “Because she really is somebody who knows what’s happening and she’s a special person, she’s really a special person and I think people know that.”
“Everybody loves her,” he added. Trump went on to say that unlike the former half-term Alaska governor, his current Republican rivals are “weak” and “ineffective” leaders “to a degree that’s actually almost hard to believe.”
Voters, Trump explained, “like the Sarah Palin kind of strength, you just don’t see very much of it anymore.”
Palin recently lauded Trump as a “hero” after he insisted that John McCain was “not a war hero” and said of POWs, “I like people that weren’t captured.” She said that just as McCain was a hero for surviving several years in a prison during the Vietnam War, “Donald Trump is a hero” because he is “giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy.”
Anti-abortion activist Alveda King claimed in a radio interview yesterday that female journalists may be hesitant to be critical of abortion rights because they have had abortions themselves or have been rendered infertile by “the chemicals and things that they try to use for birth control.”
King was discussing with Rebecca Maxwell, guest host of the “Steave Deace Show,” the recent set of videos smearing Planned Parenthood by suggesting that the organization sells fetal tissue for profit. The media was forced to cover these videos, King said, even though they had been “hesitant to deal with” legal abortion in general, perhaps because of their own personal histories.
“One reason that people have been hesitant to deal with it: shame, secrecy,” she explained. “And even if you think about the media, how do we know [whether a journalist who] is reporting this information has had to grapple with abortion or loss of fertility through using the chemicals and things that they try to use for birth control?"
"There are so many layers," she added. "How do we know that the men themselves weren’t involved in having their own child aborted? So it’s bringing it right up to you, it’s unavoidable, it’s true.”
The myth that hormonal birth control causes long-term infertility has been debunked by no less a flaming liberal outfit than Fox News, which notes that the “birth control and infertility myth has been circling around since the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the pill in 1960.”
Vladimir Putin has become a bona fide hero to American Religious Right activists, who see him as a conservative Christian counterweight to President Obama and his support for LGBT equality. Anti-gay activists, for instance, rallied around the Russian leader after the Kremlin approved a ban on speech dealing with “homosexual propaganda” to minors.
Evangelist Franklin Graham hailed Putin as a hero for taking “a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda” even as “America’s own morality has fallen so far on this issue”; Bryan Fischer called Putin a “lion of Christianity” and called upon U.S. lawmakers to adopt similar speech prohibitions; Matt Barber marveled that Putin was able to “out-Christian our once-Christian nation”; Sam Rohrer called Putin “the moral leader of the world”; Scott Lively lavished praise on Putin for “championing traditional marriage and Christian values”; and Rush Limbaugh applauded Putin for stopping “a full-frontal assault on what has always been considered normalcy.”
Officials with the World Congress of Families have lauded Putin as a savior of the entire world. The group organized a meeting for conservative activists at the Kremlin, which also played host to Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage, who traveled to Russia to defend the country’s anti-LGBT crackdown in face of a Western “attempts to silence those of us who stand for the truth of marriage.”
Much of Putin’s anti-LGBT stance is part of a broader campaign to discredit the European Union, antagonizing nationalists to rise up against the EU and its support of progressive values like LGBT rights, and empower the Russian Orthodox Church.
U.S. Religious Right activists have prioritized their absolute contempt for the LGBT community above solidarity with Protestants in Russia, who have come under attack by the state and its allies in the Orthodox Church, which views evangelicals as heretics. Protestants in the occupied area of eastern Ukraine have faced violent attacks from Putin-backed forces.
Seeing that American conservatives are more than happy to ignore Putin’s campaign against Protestantism since he is, after all, the defender of traditional marriage against gay rights, it is more than likely that they will look the other way now that he is “potentially allowing — or at the very least turning a blind eye to — polygamy among Russia’s estimated 16 million Muslims.”
Julia Ioffe explained in Foreign Policy last week that the Russian government allowed for a friend of Chechnya’s leader to take a second wife in a case that received widespread attention in the country.
As Ioffe writes, “Christian warrior Vladimir Putin” has allowed for the Chechen government to enforce Islamic religious law within its boundaries. Putin’s decision to allow Chechnya to become “a small Islamic state within the borders of the Russian Federation” has paved the way for the legalization of polygamy.
Ioffe points to a case where a teenage girl was married to a 57-year-old police chief who was already married at the time in an arrangement that had all the appearances of a forced marriage. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who, like Putin, has a notorious human rights record, made sure that the wedding took place and even appeared at the reception.
One of polygamy’s noted defenders ended up being the country’s foremost supporter of the “homosexual propaganda” law: Yelena Mizulina. Ioffe writes:
[W]hen a lone member of the parliament proposed a law criminalizing polygamy, the initiative was duly shot down by Yelena Mizulina, the parliamentarian who was among the most vocal supporters of Russia’s anti-gay laws and other “traditional values” initiatives. Criminalizing polygamy, Mizulina said, was “absurd.” The reason for polygamy, she argued was that “there are not enough men, the kind with whom women would want to start a family and have children.” Last week, Mizulina was promoted to the upper chamber of parliament.
Mizulina authored the ban on “homosexual propaganda” and pushed through a law “banning the adoption of Russian orphans by gay couples, unmarried couples and single people in countries where same-sex marriage is legal.”
Putin’s “ombudsman for children’s rights — who was behind Russia’s ban on American adoptions,” Ioffe adds, justified the wedding by claiming that “in the North Caucasus, puberty hits earlier, so 16 was a great age for marrying. ‘There are places where women shrivel up by 27,’ he said.”
The Religious Right’s support for Putin, an authoritarian leader who has infringed on basic liberties and the democratic process, undermined the freedom of religion, particularly for Protestants, and allowed for the creation of a Sharia law enclave where polygamy is legal, once again proves that for a certain segment of American conservatives, everything comes down to opposing homosexuality.
Yesterday on “The Savage Nation,” conservative talk radio host Michael Savage said that he recently spoke with a friend who worried that the U.S. is “going to wind up with guillotines, hanging us all, anyone they don’t like.”
Savage explained, sarcastically, that such a thing would never happen…just as it would never happen that an “imposter” president would “do a deal with a terrorist state like Iran giving them a path to a nuclear bomb.”
“Obama is a criminal president,” he continued. “Obama has committed one crime against this nation after another and he continues to get away with it.”
On Sunday, Matthew Hagee delivered a sermon warning the congregation at Cornerstone Church that they are on the verge of being declared "enemies of the state" by a hostile government that may soon begin locking Christian pastors up in prison.
"We find ourselves in a world where we can no longer take for granted the freedom we have to worship," Hagee said. "We must ask the question: Are Bible-believing Christians in danger of losing the liberty of practicing their faith? Do we now live in a world where those who believe and obey the Ten Commandments run the risk of being declared enemies of the state? A few years ago, this question would have seemed extreme; today, it cannot be ignored."
Just as Christians in Iran are imprisoned for preaching the Gospel, Hagee warned that soon the same thing could begin to happen in America now that "our government has legalized by a vote of 5 to 4 what God calls an abomination."
"How have we become so confused that we celebrate one athlete's sex change and call it courageous and we boo another athlete's willingness to bend his knee in the end zone and thank God for his physical strength and ability?" he asked, comparing Caitlyn Jenner to Tim Tebow.
"We call an act of terrorism on an army base 'workplace violence,'" he continued, "and we identify someone who goes to church, reads his Bible and owns a gun as an extremist. We give a half billion dollars a year to the murderous organization Planned Parenthood, who, in the name of science, take the dollars that you earn at your job and use them to sell the severed heads of unborn children and then we turn around and threaten churches with the loss of their tax exempt status if they refuse to bless sodomy at the altars and teach it to their children in the schools."
Christians may soon find themselves tagged as enemies of the state, Hagee declared, and so they must decide today "whose side are you on?"
