ISIS, Pokémon Go, and Cyber-Demons.

wiles3-2-800x430Rick Wiles, a radio show evangelist Christian pastor with a fervent wish for end times, and an endless appetite for hate, has a new target.

Rick Wiles, who frequently warns the apocalypse is near, called police last week after spotting a middle-aged man apparently taking pictures with his phone outside his “TruNews” offices — but officers told him the man was playing the augmented reality game, reported Right Wing Watch.

That freaked Wiles all the way out, and he let his imagination run wild.

“These Pokémon creatures are like virtual, cyber-demons,” Wiles said. “What this man, Friday, was trying to find was the Pokémon demon that had been placed inside the ‘Trunews’ office.”

Wiles worried that terrorists could use information harvested by the app to target Christians.

“What if this technology is transferred to Islamic jihadists, and Islamic jihadists have an app that shows them where Christians are located geographically?” Wiles said.

Uh oh. All you people happily playing a game, you’re playing with DEMONS! I really don’t think that anyone, terrorist or no, would have any difficulty in locating Christians in uStates. It’s not as if we have you all handily quarantined to one geographical location. I don’t think it would be terribly difficult to find Christians anywhere. You don’t need the help of virtual cyber-demons of the Pokémon kind. Any old cyber-demon will do.

“The enemy, Satan, is targeting churches with virtual, digital, cyber-demons,” Wiles said. “I believe this thing is a magnet for demonic powers.”

It didn’t have to be terrorists, he warned, saying everyday Americans could be tricked into doing the wicked bidding of these “cyber-demons.”

“At what point does this game go live and the Pokemon masters are telling people to kill people in those buildings?” Wiles said. “People are losing touch with reality.”

Some people are losing touch with reality, yes. That’s quite obvious. It’s just not who you think, Pastor Wiles. *Cough*

He compared Pokémon GO to the Facebook Live broadcast of a traffic stop that led to Philando Castile’s fatal shooting, saying it showed how digital technology could alter reality.

“I thought, either this is staged or she has lost touch with reality,” Wiles said. “Which one is it? Both of them are weird and frightening.”

Ummm…so everything on the internet now is the equivalent of people shouting “photoshop!”? Generally speaking, someone who stages a death isn’t then buried. This is so damn offensive, I don’t know what to say. Except perhaps they should get off the radio, immediately. I hear it’s infested with fakery demons.

Wiles’ co-host, Edward Szall, agreed — and he backed up their argument with a fake quote by the creator of Pokémon that supposedly endorsed Satanism.

“They’re spawning demons inside your church,” Wiles said. “They’re targeting your church with demonic activity. This technology will be used by the enemies of the cross to target, locate and execute Christians.”

Oh, how convenient. So, virtual cyber-demons are going to locate, target, and execute Christians, and that’s all for real and genuine, but a live stream of cops murdering a man in broad daylight, why that’s just fake nonsense. Got it.

    The ChristoLocator 3000 (TM) would go wild, you’d be getting readings all over the place, it would be the least helpful thing ever!

    Kids today. Everything has to be digital or “cyber”. Whats wrong with good old-fashioned regular demons? When I was a kid I used to have to walk my demons twice a day. Through the snow. Uphill in both directions. People like Wiles don’t know how good they have it these days with their cyber demons.

    And from the Encyclopedia of American Loons (all boldfacing and strikeouts in the original):

    #1254: Rick Wiles

    […] Wiles is “{l}ike David vs. Goliath,” a “citizen reporter who decided to take on the Big News Media” through his radio show and website Trunews, which has so little to do with “true” that he, in the manner of various “Freedom”, “Liberty” and “Values” organizations, had to put “true” in the name of his show instead, as if the name could make up for the lack of anything resembling truth in its content. […]

    The Commies are coming
     According to Wiles, the 2012 election signaled the “communist takeover of the United States of America”; in particular, he declared that the election results demonstrated that communists had taken over the nation […], while predicting that Obama’s IRS would now start raiding churches and shooting people.

     […] Saudi Arabia is slowly taking over the United States government, ever since they “put Barack Obama in power.” Yes, “Barack Obama is a foreign agent” and “his administration is the product of a successful foreign penetration of the country” by Islamists. “The federal government is quietly being taken over and changed into a pro-Islamic, anti-Christian entity,” says Rick Wiles.

     In fact, not only is Obama a Saudi agent; he is “emulating the antichrist” — “the latest incarnation of Satan’s spirit inside a human being in a high public office” — and Wiles has not been shy about expressing his fear that Obama may “declare himself as God” while visiting Israel. […]

     And don’t get him started on Al Gore, who is clearly pushing a demonic Islamist force into America as demonstrated by Al Jazeera’s purchase of Current TV. […]

     Against this background it is at least easy to see why the Republican-driven government shutdown in 2013 was actually a racist plot by President Obama to hurt white people. “Is the racist Obama administration specifically targeting conservative white people for shutdowns and evictions? I really think so. I think he is deliberately trying to provoke an outbreak of anger.” Thus works the mind of Rick Wiles.

    The Illuminati is coming
     Being hardly particularly concerned with internal consistence, Wiles appears to believe that the US government is really run by the Illuminati, which is linked to the 9/11 attacks. Also, the new One World Trade Center is actually a tribute to what he terms the “Free Mason/Illuminati New World Order” (because it is 1776 feet tall, and 1776 was the year the Illuminati was founded; you can’t don’t want to argue with that). In 2013, Wiles hosted Preston Bailey of the Spiritual Warfare Center to discuss how the “New World Order” is trying to restore the “Luciferian government” that existed before Noah’s Flood […]. Bailey told Wiles that he, based on information from his Illuminati “source”, didn’t believe that Obama was of the Illuminati’s bloodline, but instead the “forerunner of the Antichrist”; Hillary Clinton, however, is an Illuminati member. So there you go.

    The gays are coming (but of course)
     Really, though, it’s the gays. According to Wiles, “gay rights fanatics” are “going to get us all killed”. How? Well, you see, gay people are responsible for North Korea getting nuclear weapons to bomb us. How? Well, because there is “a terrible price to pay for outright rebellion against the Holy God of Israel and your sins are going to get us all killed.” Yes, that mechanism; and in order to avoid the nuclear bombs, America has to become a Christian nation, which it already is in other arguments Wiles are fond of using. Meanwhile Obama is sending weapons to Mexico and arming the Department of Homeland Security for the “full communist revolution.” It’s all going to hell, isn’t it? Lucky thing Wiles is making it all up from scratch.

     […] And in response to the Supreme Court’s marriage equality rulings Wiles claimed that Americans will escape (by rafts) to Cuba to escape gay marriage and … well, he seems to struggle with the grand picture here. In a moment of lack of self-insight breathtaking even for Rick Wiles he also lamented the lack of an “intelligent discussion” on gay rights — before promptly warning us about the dangers of gay “Nazism”. You see, gay rights advocates are literal Nazis who idolize Adolf Hitler — as a matter of fact Nazis had nothing to do with promoting the Aryan race, according to Wiles, but were instead bent on creating “a homosexual special race.” Indeed, “Hitler was trying to create a race of super gay male soldiers,” Wiles says, predicting that gay people in the US will realize Hitler’s goal and launch a mass “slaughter” and enslavement (yes, both) of Christians (his guest, Barbwire editor Jeff Allen, agreed). You won’t find that perspective in the history books, which I suppose is further evidence of a conspiracy to suppress the truth.

    Everyone else is out to get him as well
     When his views were exposed on the Rachel Maddow show, he received some messages that he concluded could only have come from “people who are demon-possessed,” thus serving as further proof that an anti-Christian holocaust is coming to America. […]

    Wiles on science, medicine and theology
     With his son Jeremy, Rick Wiles felt the need to engage with the science when Pat Robertson asserted that Young Earth Creationism is “a joke.” As Jeremy explained, we cannot possibly know that the earth is billions of years old since Noah’s flood washed away all the evidence. Hence, the reason Robertson is attacking young earth creationism is because “he doesn’t want to feel like an outcast” {keep in mind that we are talking about Pat Robertson here} and is trying to make the Bible fit in with the secular scientific worldview. But of course, this is a losing strategy. After all, history has always shown that the Bible is 100% scientifically accurate, which is why Christians have always known that the earth is round while scientists were adamant that it was flat. Again, it may be tricky to argue with that in any fruitful manner.

     To demonstrate his care for sound methodology, Wiles has also hosted a Bible code expert to prove that Obama is the Antichrist […]

     Wiles has also warned about the dangers of Halloween — it’s a source of demonic possession. Apparently he’s seen it on TV.

     […] Wiles has actually argued that Obama might be creating an army of zombie cannibals, no less. The goal, I suppose, is marriage equality, pleasing the Saudi Arabian overlords, providing health care to the uninsured, workers’ control of production, and the end times. A zombie army would ostensibly be a great means for achieving these goals.

    What is that dark shadow lurking on the left edge of the photo? Is it Satan, Cyber-Beelzebub, digital Lucifer? BOO x 666! I thought Cyberdemons were monsters in Doom games.

    Yet another theocrat fear-mongering about made-up problems.
