WorldNetDaily (WND), the one stop news site for the delusional Far-Right Christian fringe is an amalgamation of the dopiest, Armageddon prophesying doomsayers and anti-Freedom voices in the blog looniverse today. Websites such as RightWingWatch and MediaMatters have copiously done the thankless job of documenting their absurdities, including surreal, borderline advocacy of Christian theocracy and wild conspiracy theories about everything under the sun.
Pamela Geller‘s screeds are regularly published on WND, if you go to the site today, her “exclusive” feature article is about Russell Brand being a Jihadist. Yes, you read that right, she’s saying Russell Brand=Jihadist.
Apparently Geller was on Russell Brand’s talk show, Brand X (airing Nov. 1st on FX) where he implied she was a racist and told her she was a MILF (Mothers I’d Like to F***). Did Geller expect that she would be taken as a serious guest on a comedy talk show when 1.) she is a JOKE, and 2.) everyone is familiar with Brand’s style of humor? Geller went on Brand’s show because she is an attention-monger who believes “any publicity is good publicity.” It was a desperate attempt to garner some pop coverage. Geller’s over-inflated ego tells her that she’s some sort of radical chic icon who deserves international stardom, considering the backlash directed at Brand by her and her right-wing buddies’ articles she had a horrible experience. We’ll have to tune-in to be exactly sure.
Alongside Geller today, WND also has “exclusive” featured articles asking that question sure to be on everyone’s mind, “Was ‘Frankenstorm’ Another ‘Harbinger?,’” the main thrust of which centers on whether or not Hurricane Sandy was,
another reenactment of an ancient mystery described in the book of Isaiah, chapter 9, verse 10?
For hundreds of thousands of Americans, this calamity brings to mind the bestselling Christian book of 2012 and the No. 1 faith movie of the year.
The rank and file of these warriors of God are already hawking a book/movie on the back of Hurricane Sandy’s destruction, while also embarrassing believers by framing God for the devastation on the East Coast.
Recently, WND has published columnists who advocate a curtailment of Freedom of Speech and Expression. WND columnist Erik Rush wants liberals and journalists brought up on charges of sedition for treason, all in order to ‘defend freedom,’ (h/t: CriticalDragon)
WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush writes that the government should prosecute liberals and members of the press… in order to defend freedom, of course. He accuses journalists of “treasonous collusion” with the Obama administration and said the Founders would have wanted journalists to be “found guilty of high crimes.” “Trials for treason and the requisite sentences would apply,” Rush says, “and I would have no qualms about seeing such sentences executed, no matter how severe.” He claims that progressives’ “seditious, anti-American” speech is “excepted from protection under the First Amendment,” hoping that “the political disenfranchisement of liberals, progressives, socialists and Marxists can begin in earnest, and in the open.”
These words echo the opinions of those other stalwart WND columnists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, who equally want Muslims in America who practice Islam to be charged with “sedition.”
So much for their vaunted love and respect for the US Constitution, but of course we knew this all along.
Recently, genocide supporting JihadWatch zombie Eric Allen Bell (aka Eric Edborg) was profiled in a puff profile in WND titled “Counter-jihad filmmaker refuses to be silenced.” It is unclear who is trying to silence the blubbering Bell, his calls for the destruction of Muslims and Islam is everyday fare, but his false tale of conversion from “liberalism to conservatism” is still being trumpeted by the far right. The article, written by a self-described conservative Christian who goes by the pen name Marisa Martin includes a jab at Loonwatch,
For instance, he [Bell] claims that the watchdog site “Loonwatch.com” is a terrorist spin control network, while I always thought they were just crazy.
Good to know Ms. Martin reads us, I guess. Of course Bell’s weak blog diary has been not only debunked but exposed for the slanderous spin article it is by a plethora of commenters, right and left. Not only that but Bell was banned by the Daily Kos community for being a hatefilled racist and an Islamophobe, i.e. an all around bigot.
In Ms. Martin’s mind we are the “crazy” ones because we debunk the divisive forces of hate that want to undermine freedom, peace and liberty, and expose the genocidal racists whom she ever so fondly profiles in her WND articles!
