Aaron Klein Anonymous Source Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

There's trouble in Israel, which means that WorldNetDaily's Aaron Klein is treating is to more untraceable anonymous sources to advance his pro-Israel agenda:

  • A Nov. 14 article cited "senior Hamas members speaking to WND" to claim that "The Hamas leadership in Gaza is currently studying the possibility of firing rockets toward Tel Aviv, assassinating Israeli figures or launching suicide bombings inside Israel."
  • A Nov. 15 article cited "informed Middle Eastern security officials" to claim that "Advisers from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Units are in the Gaza Strip helping to oversee the firing of long-range rockets by jihadist groups there."
  • A Nov. 17 article cited "an informed Egyptian official" to claim that "A senior Israeli military official is on his way to Cairo to discuss a cease-fire over the conflict in Gaza."
  • A Nov. 18 article cited "Israeli defense sources": to claim that "Iran and Hezbollah are furiously trying to resupply Hamas in the Gaza Strip with long-range missiles to fire into Israel."

There's no way for any civilian to independently verify anything Klein writes, of course. And it looks like, with his purported quoting of israeli and Egyptian defense sources, that he's more than willing to become a shill for the Israeli government, just as he was for ousted Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak last year.

WND's Gun Columnist Suggests McVeigh Was Set Up By Government
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The last time we checked in on WorldNetDaily gun columnist Jeff Knox, he was whitewashing the crimes committed by a gun dealer. Now, Knox is suggesting that Timothy McVeigh was set up by the government to bomb the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995.

From Knox's Nov. 15 WND column:

Bill Clinton had pushed a radical liberal agenda, and a “patriot militia” movement was building and growing across the nation fueled by government-directed travesties like Ruby Ridge and Waco. Just as tensions between the two sides reached a boiling point, Timothy McVeigh detonated a bomb in front of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people and injuring nearly 700 others. Rather than triggering some sort of patriotic race war as McVeigh had envisioned, the blast resulted in the almost instantaneous dissolution of the militia and patriot movements as people tried to distance themselves from McVeigh and his actions.

There is an all too common government tactic of using paid informants to push extremists into planning serious crimes as a method of building cases against them. Informants provide encouragement, technical assistance and sometimes guns or explosives, and then government agents swoop in at the last moment to save the day. That is what some believe happened in the McVeigh case. Some take it the step further and suggest that McVeigh was allowed to commit his heinous act so as to gain public support for authorities to crack down on the militia movement. Whether that was the case or not, “agents provocateurs” are still commonly used, and there are plenty in power who will remember the lesson of McVeigh – such as then-Assistant Attorney General Eric Holder.

Today, as our nation is again faced with the challenge of an overreaching federal government feeling threatened by armed citizens who demand adherence to the Constitution, my great fear is that one side or the other will cross the line, resulting in reprisals and a cycle of increased encroachment on rights answered by increased violent resistance. Whether instigated by federal “agents provocateurs,” overzealous extremists, or unconstrained politicians and bureaucrats, the immediate result will be loss of innocent lives and further degradation of the Constitution.

Rather than shoot down a right-wing conspiracy theory, Knox has chosen to encourage it.

Richt Wing Watch catches WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah's appearance on the radio show of the American Family Association's Tim Wildmon, where he again likens Aaron Klein's identity fraud stunt of doating to President Obama's re-election campaign under the name of Osama bin Laden to "what Martin Luther King did, sometimes you’ve got to actually commit civil disobedience to get people’s attention to the injustices that are going on."

Bipartisanship Derangement Syndrome Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

If there is such a thing as evil, bipartisanship surely deserves the label. First, because it’s nothing more than code for Republicans going along with never-ending, anti-constitutional, Democratic legislation. Second, and more important, to be “bipartisan” requires that one compromise between liberty and tyranny, and, given that the two are mutually exclusive, that’s a moral impossibility.

The purpose of an opposition party is not to “reach across the aisle,” not to compromise, not to be “bipartisan.” It is to oppose. It is to fight tooth and nail for the natural rights of every citizen – rich or poor, gay or straight, male or female, black, brown, or white. It is the duty of the opposition party not to give an inch when it comes to defending the Constitution and making certain that neither Congress nor the president be allowed to take actions that are not expressly granted to them by the Constitution.

Plain and simple, the objective should be gridlock – gridlock that prevents, rather than encourages, more legislation from being passed. I don’t want to see Congress accomplish anything other than dramatically reduce taxes, dramatically reduce regulations and dramatically reduce intrusions into our personal lives.

Forget all the political mumbo-jumbo you’re hearing from the television analysts about why the most failed president in history was able to win a second term. The Republicans lost because they once again chose a stand-for-nothing candidate who was not passionate about liberty and free enterprise.

WND's Cashill Cries 'Voter Fraud,' Ignores Facts
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Jack Cashill writes in his Nov. 14 WorldNetDaily column:

On Tuesday, for instance, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that in 59 inner-city voting divisions, Mitt Romney received no votes.

“These are the kind of numbers that send Republicans into paroxysms of voter-fraud angst,” reported the Inquirer glibly. Well, yes they do.

When Barack Obama outscores Romney by a combined 19,605 to 0 votes cast in these 59 districts, the stench of fraud is surely in the air. Saddam never did this well! Yet, as far as I could tell, not a single major media outlet picked up on the Philadelphia story.

If they had, they would have likely scolded the implicitly racist Republicans for imagining fraud in an attempt to “suppress” the vote. This the DMC has routinely done whenever Republicans have attempted to tighten the voting process.

Even worse than fraud, though, is the process that turned 20,000 citizens into sheep. Years of crude, vile, racist propaganda by the DMC and its local operatives have transformed the birthplace of democracy into a laboratory of mind control Goebbels would have envied.

Aside from the immediate link to Godwinism, Cashill ignores inconvenient facts.

If Cashill had actually read beyond the headline of the Inquirer article, he would have seen that this is roughly as well as John McCain did in Philadelphia in 2008, in which he got no votes in 57 precincts. The Inquirer goes on tostate that there is "little hard evidence" of fraud despite those results because those precincts are "almost exclusively black" with very few registered Republicans. As one political science professor quoted in the article said, many parts of Philadelphia and other big cities simply lack Republican voters, a fact of campaigning that has been true since Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal.

Cashill also fails to make mention of the fact that the opposite is true in other areas of the country -- Obama got no votes in some precincts in Utah, for instance.

We suspect that Cashill won't be screaming "voter fraud" about that.

WND's Flaherty Attacks Standard Police Procedure To Feed His Race-Baiting
Topic: WorldNetDaily

It seems that resident WorldNetDaily race-baiter Colin Flaherty believes that all blacks accused of "black mob violence" are, by definition, guilty of it, and that no police investigation is necessary.

That much is clear from Flaherty's Nov. 9 WND article, which begins:

City officials in Baltimore knew exactly what to do when a mob of black people beat John Mason almost to death.

They blamed the victim.

How did Flaherty reach this conclusion? He quotes a Baltimore police spokesperson as saying, “At this point, it’s unclear what the motive was. ... “We’re looking at a variety of possibilities. One of them is an obvious robbery. We’re also looking at the background of the victim, trying to see if there are any disputes that might have resulted in this.”

But that's not "blaming the victim" -- that's called investigating a crime. If you have a crime in which the motive is not obvious, as appears to be the case here, you investigate to find out what happened. At no point did the police spokesperson blame the victim -- he simply expressed a desire to find out the circumstances of the crime, which includes investigating any possible connections between the victim and the perpetrator. That's standard police procedure.

But Flaherty apparently doesn't want any investigation. The perpetrators were black, and that's all he needs to convict.

WND Still Pushing Klein's Failed Anti-Obama Book
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Aaron Klein's Obama-bashing book "Fool Me Twice" had absolutely no effect on the presidential election, despite a brief appearance on the New York Times bestseller list. But that's not keeping WorldNetDaily from pushing the book.

A Nov. 8 WND article insisted Klein's book "may now be more relevant than ever" because it purportedly shows how Obama plans to "complete the fundamental transformation of America first pledged in 2008."

In fact, despite WND's claim that Klein's book details what Obama will do, it's nothing but Klein's usual blend speculation and guilt-by-association.

WND touted Klein's book again in a Nov. 11 article claiming that the book "documents how Obama may go about granting mass amnesty in his second term."

Note the weasel word "may." That tells you the slipperiness with which Klein and co-author Brenda J. Elliott wrote the book. It's all speculation, not fact, despite WND's claim that the book "documents Obama’s specific second term agenda in all major policy areas."

The article -- and,, presumably, Klein's book -- baselessly assumes that "immigration reform" and "amnesty" are the same thing. As we've detailed, "amnesty" has a specific meaning apart from immigration reform, and it's a term used (and misused) by critics of reform.

WND's Farah Advocates 'Separation,' Says Obama Voters Have 'Gone Awhoring'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah is still pretty bitter about President Obama's re-election (due in no small part to the fact that he bet WND's reputation on personally destroying Obama and ended up destroying WND's credibility instead). Farah's Nov. 13 column reflects that bitterness with an advocacy for secession -- and a claim that people who supported Obama's re-election have "gone awhoring":

Divorce is an ugly word.

For devout Christians and Jews, it’s a particularly unthinkable term.

The Bible strictly discourages it, even forbids it, except in the most exceptional circumstances.

But for Americans faithful to the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the heritage of sacrifice and liberty that set apart this country from the rest of the world, it’s time to consider separation and divorce from those who have committed adultery.The election of 2012 provides more stark evidence that we are not really one country, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. We are already two peoples – those of us still loyal and faithful to the God-inspired founding American principles and those who have gone awhoring after the idols of government coercion and doing what’s right in their own eyes.

In short, as I have written before, America is flirting with profound judgment. If those of us who disapprove of the same-sex marriage, abortion, tyranny, collectivism, the coerced subversion of religious freedom and forced taxpayer support for the spreading of ungodly, unbiblical values and laws want to avoid that coming judgment, it’s time to separate ourselves wholly from participation.

I don’t pretend to know exactly how this works.

America is a big country that is thoroughly permeated with this treasonous, immoral, adulterous lifestyle.

But I am convinced we’ve got to begin forming new communities of the faithful and declare our separation and independence once again, just as our courageous founders did 236 years ago. Like them, we need to be prepared to defend ourselves, our families, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Barring a miracle, I don’t believe reconciliation with those who have gone awhoring is a possibility. I’m sorry, I just don’t have much in common with Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and George Soros and Bruce Springsteen (even though we are both from New Jersey) and George Clooney and these other looneys.

No mention, of course, of Farah's own immorality in publishing all sorts of smears, rumors and lies in an attempt to destroy Obama, thus putting his own far-right agenda ahead of the truth.

Joseph Farah's Post-Election Solution: Send Him More Money
Topic: WorldNetDaily

One of WorldNetDaily's longtime money-making schemes is charging its readers to send letters on their behalf, so it's no surprise that WND editor Joseph Farah would peddle the idea that the way to react to President Obama's re-election is to send him more money.

In his Nov. 9 column, Farah declared he had an "answer" to Obama's re-election -- the revival of his "No More Red Ink" campaign, in which you pay WND $29.99 (Farah benignly describes that "investing less than $30") for the privilege of "sending individually addressed letters in red ink to all 241 Republicans in the House by guaranteed Fed Ex delivery" telling them not to raise the federal debt limit. Farah does his best to sell it: "Let’s just say it’s a bargain at that price. Try to imagine what it would cost you to send 240 individual letters to Republican House members if you did it yourself. We do all the work and guarantee the delivery."

Farah provides no evidence that spamming members of Congress with letters accomplishes anything.

In his Nov. 11 column, Farah makes dubious accusations that the election was stolen, citing as one piece of evidence Aaron Klein's identity fraud stunt. But this eventually turns into a fund-raising pitch:

I’m challenging the Obama campaign on the acceptance of those illegal donations. I’ve filed a Federal Elections Commission complaint at considerable cost. I have no illusions that it will be easy to challenge a sitting president within his own bureaucracy. But I’m doing it. Meanwhile, some in the press would prefer that I be charged with voter fraud for efforts to expose the system. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the Democrat machine tries something like that.

That’s why we need your help.

We’re fighting to preserve America’s freedom here – nothing less.

We’re fighting to preserve the concept of representative government – elections that actually mean something.

We’re fighting to expose what no other news agency in the world apparently has an interest in exposing – the dark underbelly of corruption, fraud and abuse in our political system.

Can you help? 

The column includes numerous links to a page at the WND store for WND's "2012 Voter Fraud Challenge," in which it is noted that "WND filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission charging the Obama campaign with knowingly accepting foreign contributions without even a modicum of scrutiny," based on Klein's little identity fraud stunt. The page helpfully suggests that it will accept donations of up to $5,000.

One has to wonder if Farah is simply ginning up anti-Obama hatred just so he can try to make a buck on it.

WND Issues Another Dishonest Fact-Check
Topic: WorldNetDaily

You know how a couple months back, WorldNetDaily did an ostensible debunking of a chain email about the number of executive orders President Obama has issued that nevertheless treated the claim as if it true? Well, they've done it again.

A Nov. 10 WND article by Drew Zahn is headlined "Is THIS what Obama meant by 'revenge'?" Zahn then writes:

When Barack Obama said on the campaign trail, “Voting is the best revenge,” was this what he meant?

A quote allegedly by Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett has been spreading like wildfire online lately: “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us, and they better be ready, because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded; the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over, and we have two judges ready to go.”

It's not until the third paragraph that Zahn gets around to telling the truth:

The quote, however, is suspect and is at best four steps removed from Jarrett herself.

Though repeatedly widely in hundreds of blogs and even the website of a Philadelphia newspaper, the original source of the quote appears to be a blog site called The Ulsterman Report.

Yet even “Ulsterman” doesn’t claim to have actually heard the words spoken.

So, it's not true, and there's no proof that it is. Yet the headline and first two paragraphs of Zahn's article treats the invented quote as if it's real.

That's not how you do a fact-check, Drew.

Obama Derangement Syndrome Watch, Supersize WorldNetDaily Post-Election Edition
Topic: WorldNetDaily

It is time for Americans to dig deep and prepare for the worst. During his first term, Obama enacted, or made overtures toward enacting, everything I anticipated he would. I expect that the economy will continue to deteriorate, as will our standing in the international community. Islamists here and abroad will become bolder, and efforts to stultify this domestically will be met with accusations of racism and intolerance, and occasionally, resistance and prosecution under civil-rights statutes.

Our liberties under the First and Second Amendments in particular will be directly and vigorously attacked under this administration. Illegal immigration will soar, and violence along the southern border will continue to escalate. Energy prices will “necessarily skyrocket” as Obama openly pronounced was his desire. This will include fossil fuels (gasoline), which will translate into skyrocketing prices for everything one can imagine, including food. Should any of this lead to civil unrest, so much the better, as it will give Obama the chance to shore up and perhaps even test his nascent totalitarian infrastructure.

[...]

WND founder Joseph Farah and radio host Glenn Beck both had a somewhat Old Testament take on the outcome of this election, something I am also inclined to do. In that book, there are many examples wherein the whole of Israel had to suffer because a preponderance of Israelites insisted upon embracing ungodly things – or ungodly kings.

-- Erik Rush, Nov. 7 WorldNetDaily column

They are mindless. They are ravenous. They are innumerable. They shamble in great hordes, always a mob, moving ever in lock step with those to either side and ahead of them. They cannot be reasoned with. They cannot be bargained with. They hear nothing but their own moans and the screams of their victims. Left to their own devices, they will overwhelm any space they occupy, consuming their own population, ripping apart social and civil convention, until nothing remains but a horde of rotting corpses – idiot creatures who have no idea what they are or how they have come to this pass, decaying imbeciles who cannot comprehend the destruction they have wrought.

They are Democrats.

[...]

When illiterate cretins bark proudly about “Obamaphones,” when fools ignorant of economics actually believe socialized medicine is “free health care,” when the open-borders crowd looks the other way while English becomes a minority language and illegal aliens swamp the welfare rolls while swelling the prisons, we’ve already reached that point. Half of all Americans actually wanted four more years of Barack Hussein Obama. The margin wasn’t even thin. When a president this bad, in an economy this bad, surrounded by scandals this bad, is easily re-elected, the republic is lost.

Romney’s “47 percent” is really 50 percent. Half of your fellow citizens are zombies. They are mindless. They are hungry. They are a threat to you. They will keep voting to take your freedom and give themselves “free” stuff until they kill us all.

-- Phil Elmore, Nov. 7 WND column

It is morning in Amerika, and the majority of people who voted to re-elect Barack Obama president don’t even know it. Everything appears to be normal, but everything has changed. The United States will not be the same.

I have never felt that all was lost after a single election as I do today. 

-- Jane Chastain, Nov. 7 WND column

So, in addition to my question about why the Duplicitous Despot directed Susan Rice to appear on five major television shows and say that the Benghazi attack was nothing more than a spontaneous demonstration that resulted from a video, I have another question: Why isn’t anyone – say, for example, Republican House and Senate members! – talking about criminally indicting Barack Obama? Or, at a minimum, starting impeachment proceedings against America’s make-believe president?

-- Robert Ringer, Nov. 7 WND column

Cultural institution after cultural institution fell to the so-called, misnamed “progressives.” (They should really be called “retrogressives,” because they are not moving people forward as America’s founders did. They are move them backward – toward state power. They are not removing the shackles from the people and placing them on the government as the founders did. They are putting government’s shackles back on the people.)

Today, with the unthinkable, unimaginable re-election of Barack Obama, the revolution is nearly complete.

-- Joseph Farah, Nov. 8 WND column

America has forsaken her first love. She has finally, and fully, given herself over to a licentious Lothario with whom she has increasingly flirted since her youth. He is sin – and, notwithstanding full knowledge of who he is and what he intends, with him she has lain.

America has tasted the poisonous fruits of lust, pride, passion, and envy – sloth, frivolity, iniquity and entitlement. She has tasted of their sweet deception and found it irresistible. She has danced in the streets, intoxicated by the very poison that will be her undoing.

America has rebelled against God. She has shaken her fist at Him and arrogantly cried, “We don’t need you. We don’t want you. We know better than you. Now go away.”

And so He’s going away.

-- Matt Barber, Nov. 9 WND column

Well, America went to the polls. At least 120 million or so of us did.

Over 56 million voted one way, for one direction, for one set of principles – and some 58 million voted for an entirely different set. And so the larger group takes all of us, the whole of America, in their chosen direction.

Without going into all the specifics, the lesser number voted for fiscal responsibility, limited government, respect for the Constitution and law itself, proven experience in management and success in financial matters, and adherence to time-honored, biblical values. For strong military defense, commitment to Israel and traditional families. Dull stuff like that.

[...]

Friend, our people have rejected the very same God and His way, and clamored after a king who has promised to provide, protect and lead them into a Promised Land where “everybody has everything.” So that same God must take His hand off those who have rejected Him and allow them to reap the consequences.

It’s not going to be fun.

-- Pat Boone, Nov. 9 WND column

Many times in the history of the world, God has destroyed His people and started anew when they strayed from His word. Just ask Noah what the flood was all about! This time, even with the floods of Hurricane Sandy and the re-election of the President Barack Hussein Obama, God has spared us for the moment. Instead God has sent a dire warning and encouraged We the People to rise up, in His name, to restore His kingdom.

Had Mitt Romney been elected president, many among the flock would have been lulled asleep and deluded into thinking that a Moses had appeared to deliver us out of the Egyptian-like bondage we find ourselves in – thanks to our “Mullah in Chief” and his growing voter hoards of socialists, communists, anti-Semites, anti-Christians, atheists, radical gays and lesbians, feminists, illegal immigrants, Muslims, anti-Anglo whites and others who last Tuesday cemented his destructive hold on the White House and our country.

[...]

This is why we need to use peaceful and powerful means to fight against the evils of our corrupt government. One of these avenues is the Citizens Grand Jury, which I, as a Citizens Prosecutor, have empaneled in Ocala, Fla. On Oct, 29, 2012, the Citizens Grand Jury, after having evidence presented to it, voted unanimously on a true bill to indict President Obama and Vice President Biden on charges of treason for their having intentionally leaked classified national security information to boost their political fortunes in the Nov. 6 elections. This month, I will be returning to Ocala to seek the indictment of Obama for his having defrauded the American people with regard to his eligibility to be president. And, after that the Citizens Grand Jury will set its sights on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Elena Kagan for Roberts having violated his oath of office in rendering a willfully illegal ruling in the case upholding the constitutionality of Obamacare and not disqualifying Kagan, given her conflict of interest. Kagan will be indicted for violating her oath of office and refusing to recuse herself from the case as required by the Judicial Canons of Ethics.

-- Larry Klayman, Nov. 9 WND column

So why does it feel as if something important has changed as a result of the recent presidential election? Why is there a sense of significant and lasting change for the worse in the political wind due to the re-election of Barack Obama?

The reason is that the re-election of Obama – combined with the manner in which it occurred – has finally extinguished the last embers of hope in the hearts of millions of true Americans. Even many of those who refused to vote for Romney on principle because of his proven liberal track record nevertheless saw him as operating within the limits of traditional American political ideology. They might have seen him as a potentially disastrous president, and been skeptical that he would even begin to address the cataclysmic problems facing the nation, but they saw him as someone who was genuinely concerned about the fate of the United States and the American population within it.

Americans don’t despair now because the president is a Democrat or because blacks disproportionately supported him. That was equally true when Clinton ran for office. The reason they are reeling with shock and horror is that they have finally come to understand that the melting pot is a myth, that the grand story of immigration they swallowed as children is a monstrous falsehood, and that there are now two very different nations living within the boundaries of what they had previously believed was a single country.

The uncomfortable fact of the matter is that post-1965 immigrants are not, and never will be, Americans in the constitutional or revolutionary sense. It doesn’t matter if they are Catholic mestizos, Christian Asians or Muslim Arabs. It is not a matter of religion or race, but rather of centuries-old cultural traditions in which a dominant central government is considered a basic fact of life and a potential resource to be exploited, not a dangerous servant best viewed with suspicion and kept under constant restraint. This can be seen in the 2012 exit polls: Asians voted 73 percent for Obama’s big government message, Hispanics 71 percent, Muslims 85 percent and blacks 96 percent.

[...]

The 2012 presidential election was not significant because it signaled the end of America. That was already readily apparent eight years ago. But it was significant because it made it clear to everyone how, when and why constitutional America met its end.

WND's Ellis Washington Goes Godwin -- Again
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Ellis Washington goes Godwin on President Obama for the second time in as many weeks, using his Nov. 9 WorldNetDaily column to obsess over the meaning of the "Arbeit Macht Frei" phrase and then inserting Obama into it:

Astonishingly, the Germans got millions of intelligent people to willingly enter concentration camps under the grotesque, perverse, genocidal lie Arbeit Macht Frei.

On a less extreme level than Nazi tyranny and genocide, I wonder … has America sown the wind by re-electing Barack Obama? If so, then we should collectively get ready to reap the whirlwind in a new age of socialist hell we have brought upon ourselves.

So re-electing Obama is like putting people in concentration camps? Really?

But Washington wasn't done pouting over Obama's re-election:

Like most conservatives and Republicans, the results of Tuesday’s election has left me numb and depressed, yet I will soldier on. I can’t believe that otherwise intelligent, rational people would knowingly elect a Marxist, socialist Muslim-sympathizer who has purposely ruined America, promised to wreak even more “revenge” upon this country in his second term – and 53 percent of those exit polled blamed George W. Bush for Obama’s existential recession. Incredible!

Arbeit Macht Frei.

Under the Democratic Socialist Party, this means whatever lies they tell you are the truth, and whatever truth Christians, conservatives and Republicans tell you are lies.

[...]

Arbeit Macht Frei achieved for black America what 250 years of slavery could not do: all but destroy the black family. My people voted 96 percent for Obama in 2008 and 93 percent for Obama in 2012 and danced in the streets with such joy and passion on election night that the Democratic Party plantation slave chains around their necks, wrists and ankles drowned out the victory music at Obama’s acceptance speech in Chicagoland.

And Washington still wonders why, after spewing such hate, no reputable university will hire him for a tenure-track job.

Ilana Mercer Doesn't Want The Right to Vote
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In the midst of her Nov. 8 WorldNetDaily column complaining about President Obama's re-election, Ilana Mercer writes:

As always, women voted with their wombs, although married sisters were less wild for big daddy O. (Oh, how we suffer for the female suffrage! I once vowed to “give up my vote if that would guarantee that all women were denied the vote.”)

Usually, it's men like Vox Day who don't think women should vote. This is the first time we've encountered a female requesting that the right to vote be taken away from her.

Mercer goes on to complain that "For years, those of us who’ve warned about demographics have been dubbed racists." Perhaps that's because people like her write things like this:

The only voters who could be swayed by the promise of the free market are the Democratic Party’s Asian supporters, since they enjoy higher incomes and stabler families than the party’s Hispanic and black devotees.

And this:

The now-waning West became great not because it outbred the rest of the world. The West was once great because of its human capital – innovation, exploration, science, philosophy; because of superior ideas and the willingness to defend such a civilization, not because it was more populated than the rest of the world.

America doesn’t need more people; it needs better people.

That's pretty much on par with her longtime pining for apartheid.

Joel Richardson's 'Christian Response' To Obama's Re-Election: Hate
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joel Richardson's Nov. 8 WorldNetDaily column is headlined "A Christian response to Obama victory," but it quickly degenerates into to some very un-Christian hate-spewing and name-calling:

In the afterglow of Obama’s victory, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Ayatollah Khamenei, Vladimir Putin and Chris Matthews, as well as millions of pot-heads, sodomites, pro-aborts and all common moochers, are sharing a collective thrill. The American people by a clear majority have rejected fiscal responsibility, energy independence, national security, border security, traditional family values, and worst of all, standing with the most defenseless and innocent among us. Barack Obama’s re-election is a complete political, economic, moral, social and spiritual catastrophe.

Is such hate a "Christian response" as Richardson would have us believe? Unlikely, except in the eyes of the other obsessively anti-Obama self-proclaimed Christians at WND.

Richardson goes on to encourage his readers to take the long view and "shift our eyes to the heavenly city, to the country that God is preparing for us," where "the judgment of the many unrighteous, self-serving and corrupt politicians throughout the whole earth" awaits:

For now, my country is governed by a man many of us feel is a truly unrighteous individual, a race-baiter, a divider, a liar, a destroyer. And while I would not suppose to truly know anyone’s heart, I do take great comfort in the fact that there is one who knows the hearts of all people and who has promised a day of justice for all of the earth. So while I will continue to stand and fight for this great nation, even believing that there is yet hope for repentance, revival and restoration, as I watch this beautiful country slip away and devolve into something almost unrecognizable, I take great comfort in knowing that a heavenly country lies ahead. I have been promised a kingdom, and it is on this kingdom the eyes of my heart are fixed. And even more than the coming kingdom, my eyes of hope are fixed entirely on the coming King. And for this reason, the present man in office will never have control over my emotions and will do nothing to steal my joy.

If Obama didn't control Richardson's emotions, why did he spend an entire column spewing Obama-hate?
