David Horowitz appeared on Newsmax today to debate St. Louis County public defender Thomas Harvey about the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri.
While Harvey described evidence of discrimination in the criminal justice system, Horowitz ended up shouting about how he is “sick and tired of the black America blaming everybody but itself for its problems.”
“What we have going on in Ferguson is a lynch mob, this is one of the most disgraceful acts imaginable,” he continued. “You have uh, indict, prosecute, indict, convict or else, this is exactly the mentality of the lynch mobs of the past, the difference is that this lynch mob is black and it’s led by the attorney general of the United States.”
Family Research Council executive vice president Jerry Boykin yesterday charged President Obama with ignoring violence against Christians in his recent speech on ISIS.
Just like Religious Right broadcaster Rick Wiles, Boykin edited a quote from Obama’s speech to claim that the president is ignoring the murder of Christians.
Here is what Obama said about ISIS:
They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion.
Obama has also denounced the persecution of Christians in the Mideast in past remarks:
As ISIL has marched across Iraq, it has waged a ruthless campaign against innocent Iraqis. And these terrorists have been especially barbaric towards religious minorities, including Christian and Yezidis, a small and ancient religious sect. Countless Iraqis have been displaced.
We will continue to work with the international community to deal with the growing humanitarian crisis in Iraq. Even as our attention is focused on preventing an act of genocide and helping the men and women and children on the mountain, countless Iraqis have been driven or fled from their homes, including many Christians.
More broadly, I’ve made the case that no society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all its peoples, including religious minorities, whether they’re Ahmadiyya Muslims in Pakistan, or Baha’i in Iran, or Coptic Christians in Egypt. And in Syria, it means ensuring a place for all people -- Alawites and Sunni, Shia and Christian.
This weekend, Michelle and I extend our best wishes to members of the Orthodox Christian community here in America and around the world as they observe Holy Friday and the Feast of the Resurrection. For millions of Orthodox Christians, this is a joyful time. But it’s also a reminder of the sacrifice Christ made so that we might have eternal life. His decision to choose love in the face of hate; hope in the face of despair is an example we should always strive to follow. But it’s especially important to remember this year, as members of the Orthodox community have been confronted with persecution and violence, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. For centuries, the region and the world has been enriched by the contributions of Orthodox communities in countries like Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. As a nation, we reaffirm our commitment to protecting universal human rights including the freedom of religion. And in this season of hope and restoration, we celebrate the transformational power of sacrificial love.
Today, the American Family Associaton’s OneNewsNow interviews Brian Camenker of the Massachusetts anti-gay group MassResistance, who warns that when a high school student comes out as gay it is all part of a strategy carefully orchestrated by gay rights activists “seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks”:
A Massachusetts family values advocate says it's no accident that so many students announce that they are homosexuals.
Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance says these incidents of students “coming out” are the result of a carefully calculated strategy by homosexual activists. He says, historically, school administrators eagerly work with activists who are seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks.
“We saw one situation at Brookline High School in Brookline, Massachusetts, where the principal actually participated in an assembly where they encouraged kids to announce that they were coming out,” he tells OneNewsNow.
He says the activists prey on pupils who are the most vulnerable.
Camenker says it's not just in Massachusetts - this is happening all across the nation. He says parents need to know about these recruitment programs and demand that they be kept out of their children’s schools.
On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” End Times radio broadcaster Rick Wiles accused President Obama of deliberately ignoring ISIS’ campaign of horrific violence against Christians in northern Iraq. Wiles did so by editing Obama’s recent remarks about ISIS to drop his condemnation of the extremist group’s crimes against Christians.
“Barack Hussein The Muslim Obama couldn’t bring himself to denouncing the Islamic State for its savage butchery of Christians,” Wiles said, before falsely claiming that Obama trained ISIS militants to “slaughter Christians.”
Here is what Obama actually said, clearly mentioning the suffering of Christians and the genocide against the Yazidis.
Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion. They declared their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people. So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.
Dinesh D'Souza was a guest on Steve Malzberg's program on Newsmax yesterday, where he inexplicably linked the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri to the murderous rampage being carried out by ISIS in Iraq.
D’Souza accused President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton of undermining the justice system by "fostering an atmosphere in Ferguson that basically goes 'let's declare that this guy is probably guilty and let's see what we can do to put him up against the wall.' The idea that he would get impartial justice is becoming highly questionable."
Declaring that, historically, it was black people who were denied equal justice under the law, D'Souza said that now we are seeing "a complete flip" so that now white people cannot get justice under President Obama and America is just "going from one set of injustices to another."
That somehow led D'Souza to claim that there is "a common thread between ISIS and what's going on in Ferguson" because, in both situations, people are seeking to correct a perceived injustice by inflicting a whole host of new injustices "and all of this is then licensed by the Left and licensed, to some degree, by the media":
On Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast today, Matt Barber and Deryl Edwards discussed the increasing support for gay rights among Christians and the rise in the number of Christians who are coming out as gay, like Christian singer Vicky Beeching.
To Barber and Edwards, this sort of "great falling away from the clear words of Scripture" just might be a sign that the End Times are rapidly approaching.
"This looks to be," Barber said, "at least to me, that it may be the beginning of this great falling away" that was prophesied in the Bible. Edwards agreed, saying that this is exactly what Paul warned would happen as the End Times grow near.
Citing 1 Timothy 4:1, which warns that "in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons," Edwards said that this seems to be what is happening today.
"Are we in the Last Days?" he asked. "It sure seems like it."
Barber then announced that Christians must pray for Beeching in hopes that she will repent because "she's really in danger here of leading millions of Christ's little ones astray and as Scripture says, it's better to have a millstone around your neck [and to be drowned in the depths of the sea] than to do so":
GOP Committeewoman Warns Child Migrants 'Highly Trained As Warriors,' Could 'Rise Up Against Us As Americans'
On her weekly radio show yesterday, RNC committeewoman Tamara Scott of Iowa warned that child migrants from Central America may have been “highly trained as warriors” and could “rise up against” U.S. citizens.
“When we see these kids, you and I think young kids, we think maybe 12-year-olds, maybe homeschoolers — excuse me, middle-schoolers,” said Scott, who is also Concerned Women for American’s Iowa state director and works as a lobbyist for the conservative group The Family Leader. “But we know back in our revolution, we had 12-year-olds fighting in our revolution. And for many of these kids, depending on where they’re coming from, they could be coming from other countries and be highly trained as warriors who will meet up with their group here and actually rise up against us as Americans.”
Mary Huls, leader of a Texas-based Tea Party group, agreed, warning that the children could have been trained in Venezuela to work for Hezbollah or Hamas (never mind that most of the children are from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador). “They are being trained as warriors, you’re absolutely right,” she said.

Bryan Fischer kicked off his radio program today with a discussion about the revulsion that God feels whenever gay people have sex, which is the same disgust that all human beings feel when thinking about it unless, that is, they have been brainwashed by society to accept it.
Homosexuality, Fischer explained, is an "abomination" because "it causes an inner revulsion. In other words, when you see it, you think about it, you recoil from it. Your instinct is to recoil from it in some kind of disgust."
"Homosexual behavior is an abomination to God," he continued. "When God sees it, it causes him to recoil. And when we think about the actual act of homosexuality, we have exactly the same reaction. Most people think about that, they don't want to think about that, they don't want to visualize it because it is disgusting. And if people aren't politically conditioned to accept it, their natural reaction is that's just not normal, that's just not natural, that's not what human beings were designed for, that's not what they were made for":
