Right Wing Watch has discovered a radio show they didn’t know existed, one hosted by Rick Wiles called TRUNEWS. Digging into the archives, they found a show with Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel done right after the election in which the two of them declare that the result signified a “communist takeover” of the United States. And now the IRS will start throwing pastors in jail, invading churches and shooting parishioners.
Barber: The party that this man [Obama] represents certainly and this man himself, when you look at his principles, it is a Romans 1 party and this is a Romans 1 president that has adopted all forms of sexual deviant behavior and sin as something good. You know, Scripture says ‘woe to those who call evil good and good evil;’ we now have a president and a controlling party in the Senate that calls evil good and good evil and we now have a majority of Americans – at least 51 percent, give or take I don’t know how many thousands based on the voter fraud that was pretty clear here – the scales have tipped where a nation has re-elected as their king, if you will, a man who is engaging in abject evil.
Wiles: Matt, the Democratic Party convention booed the mention of God three times. The people have elected a Marxist Muslim who I believe is a revolutionary. Voters in states like Maryland and Washington state [and] Maine endorsed homosexual marriage … I believe Wisconsin elected an avowed lesbian as a senator. In Massachusetts they elected a Marxist professor. Matt, this is a communist takeover of the United States of America.
Barber: Those words are not too strong. You know, there used to be a time when you used words like ‘communism’ and ‘Marxism’ – and of course inherent in the communist ideology and philosophy of Marxism is the demand that all reference to God and religion, particularly the Christian religion, be removed. We see us heading down that path where Christians under this Marxist president and those in the Democratic Party, we see them pushing Christians to the fringes, trying to marginalize Christians, anybody who speaks the truth of Scripture in a public forum, they want that drummed out completely. And now that this president does not face re-election, I shudder to think of what he might do in terms of trying to silence those who oppose him.
You know, they talk about Chicago-style politics; we’re talking about Stalin-esque style politics here and this whole thing with General Petraeus, my first thought – it may very well be that he was engaging in infidelity and all of this, but since when has the mainstream media cared about that? But my first thought was, wow, this is a set-up, this is as close to Stalinist Russia to try and silence this guy, to try and shut him up when he needs to testify as anything we’ve seen. It sent a chill down my spine and no longer are words like ‘Marxism’ and ‘communism’ hyperbole, we have reached that time.
Wiles: I see pastors going to prison. I see IRS SWAT teams coming down on churches and shooting people and seizing buildings. That’s what I see.
Barber: God, I hope you’re wrong. I don’t know. I don’t know what it is going to look like …
And when none of this happens, neither one of them will be the least bit phased, nor will any of their followers. Being a wingnut means never having to admit you were wrong.
