A fringe activist with ties to Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul has called for the execution of LGBT people and their Christian supporters.

Theodore Shoebat, who appears along with the Republican presidential candidates in a recently released anti-LGBT film, cited scripture and Catholic doctrine to call for death to those who engage in or accept homosexuality, reported Right Wing Watch.

“Opinions expressed in favor for homosexuality and other deviancies (such as cannibalism), are worthy of capital punishment,” Shoebat wrote. “This purely illustrates that Christianity is so much against the license to do evil — even if it is done in private — that it prohibits any approval of it.”

Shoebat, a self-described “Christian militant” who believes Islamic State extremists are gay, participates in the faux-documentary “Light Wins” by asking bakeries on camera to make cakes bearing anti-LGBT messages.

The film, which was created by right-wing conspiracy theorist and Reaganbook social network founder Janet Porter, features interviews with Huckabee, Paul, and GOP Reps. Trent Franks (R-AZ), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and Tim Huelskamp (R-KS).

Shoebat, the son of fraudulent “terror expert” Walid Shoebat, argues that homosexuality should be considered seditious because, he claims, it represents a threat to marriage – “the building block of society.”

“The sodomite, the atheist, the fanatic feminist, the Muslim — all such must be deemed as criminals and enemies to civilization, for they war against the Faith, promote death and hate life,” Shoebat argued.

“They should be told to leave their wicked ways under coercion, and if that does not work, then death and strong suppression is the only solution,” he continued. “We cannot allow someone the freedom to do evil, for this will only increase the presence of darkness in the society, and it will become an internal enemy.”

Trump appointee floated plan to move Santa impersonators to the front of the line for the COVID-19 vaccine: report

Published

on

The Wall Street Journal has uncovered information that one of President Donald J. Trump's HHS assistant secretaries, Michael Caputo, was plotting to deliver a super secret COVID-19 vaccine to Santa Claus performers - including Mrs. Claus and the elves - before the general public. The proposed $250 million campaign would have included performers agreeing to promote the vaccine to all the boys and girls who came to sit on their laps at Christmastime.

“This was our greatest hope for Christmas 2020, and now it looks like it won’t happen,” Ric Erwin, chairman of the Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas, told the Journal.

Conservative New Hampshire paper breaks 100-year tradition of GOP presidential endorsements with nod to Biden

Published

on

In it's first Democratic endorsement in 100 years, a conservative New Hampshire newspaper is breaking tradition by backing Joe Biden for president.

The New Hampshire Union Leader released a statement in their publication on Sunday defending their decision.

"There is no love lost between this newspaper and President Donald J. Trump. The Union Leader was very quickly dismissed by then-candidate Trump after we failed to bestow on him our endorsement in the Republican primary four years ago, "the statement said. "We were hopeful with Trump’s win that he might change, that the weight and responsibility of the Oval Office might mold a more respectful and presidential man. We have watched with the rest of the world as the mantle of the presidency has done very little to change Trump while the country and world have changed significantly."

Published

Josh Holmes currently serves as a top adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). While much of the GOP's fate is on the chopping block this election cycle with closer races than anticipated and little help from the president himself, Holmes told Politico he thinks "you could have a whole bunch of scenarios play out on Election Day." The worst-case scenario for the GOP, he said, is "potentially catastrophic."
