RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
A new week, a new set of wild predictions from the Right Wing, who fear that LGBT rights will make clothing obsolete and legalize child abuse all while President Obama is just itching to empower the Antichrist and turn the Black Lives Matter movement into his personal Brownshirts.
5) LGBT Community To Legalize Pedophilia
Rafael Cruz, like his son, GOP presidential candidate Ted, is no stranger to harsh anti-gay rhetoric, which was on display when he spoke this week at the World Congress of Families, an event bringing together anti-LGBT activists from across the globe. During the summit, the elder Cruz said that the next issue that the LGBT community is “going to push is to try to legalize pedophilia.”
4) Gay Marriage Threatens Clothing
Creationist activist Ken Ham is very upset about the legalization of same-sex marriage, claiming that the legitimacy of same-sex couples undermines the literal belief in Adam and Eve, and therefore the Bible as a whole. By undermining a literal reading of the Bible, Ham reasoned, gay marriage could ultimately sway people to discard rules altogether, including rules about wearing clothes.
“If you abandon Genesis’ literal history of marriage and say marriage can be two men or two women or whatever you want, well why not abandon clothing?” he asked.
3) Another Secret Obama Army
In May, Michael Savage thought that President Obama would use Crips and Bloods gang members as his personal troops. Then he thought the president would employ Syrian refugees as his “army to overthrow the people.”
Now, the conservative talk show host insists that it will actually be Black Lives Matter activists who will have the honor of serving as “Obama’s shock troops.”
“They’re the Brownshirts that Hitler had in Germany,” Savage said in an interview with Steve Malzberg of Newsmax, warning that Black Lives Matter will soon emerge as “the secret private army that Barack Hussein Obama has been talking about.”
2) Obama Ushering In The Antichrist
End Times broadcaster Jan Markell knows why Obama is so determined to fight climate change, and it’s not because climate change is real, since “you and I know that God changes climate; we don’t change climate, God changes climate.”
Instead, it must be because Obama wants to “usher in global government” and is “using climate change as the issue” to justify such a system. This global government, Markell said, will ultimately give rise to “a single leader whose title will be the Antichrist and he’s waiting in the wings.”
At least that means Obama himself isn’t the Antichrist.
1) Blame ‘Socialistic’ Schooling For Disease Outbreaks
Tamara Scott, a Republican National Committee member and leader of the Iowa chapter of Concerned Women for America, recently invited two anti-vaccine activists, including one from the “Vaccine Liberation Army,” onto her radio program to discuss the real cause of outbreaks of disease among children.
As Scott explained, parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are being unfairly demonized. Instead, people should blame the spread of illnesses on “socialistic teaching” in public schools, “where you no longer have your own pencils” and students are “facing each other.”
Rather than vaccinate your kids, she continued, parents should keep them safe by taking “them out of public school. It will help them mentally, emotionally, academically and now, physically, it would help them as well.”
