Wiles: Russia Will Nuke Us, God Won’t Save Us

Rick Wiles, the deranged windbag behind the TruNews radio show who just adores Vladimir Putin, says that our sanctions against Russia, which he falsely thinks were in response to that country’s anti-gay policies (they were in response to Crimea and Ukraine), will cause Putin to nuke us and God won’t intervene to help us.

On his radio show “Trunews” this week, Wiles predicted that the U.S. will provoke Russia into using nuclear weapons “and just obliterate us while we sleep at night.”

And when this happens, Wiles warned, God won’t come to America’s aid: “We are on the edge of World War III and this time the United States of America does not have divine protection because we’ve become a nation of homosexuals and atheists and lesbians and God-haters.”

He said that Americans will instead cry out to their “gay god” while Russia pummels the country with nukes. “Is your gay god going to come and save you?” he asked.

See atheists, especially gay atheists, it’s all your fault that God won’t help us when Putin nukes us! Now you go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done!

    I am not worried. We have the WOPR.


    Oh wait, Obama and Matthew Broderick conspired to have removed in 1983! OH NO!!!!111

    Funny how their god is always going to punish people who have fuck all to do with the thing he’s supposedly mad about. Gays and atheists? He’s going to nuke EVERYONE in America! It’s almost like they’re just using threats of violence and death to control their followers through fear…

  • U Frood

    See the Christians didn’t pray hard enough to have God step in and put an end to same sex marriage, so he’s going to punish them by letting Russia nuke us.

    Well, punish the whole world, really, as we still have enough nukes to destroy the world in retaliation.

  • raven

    God has notoriously bad aim. That means Russia will probably nuke Canada or Morocco or some place.

    This is all rather stupid. Russia could in theory nuke us. We would just nuke them back. The USA has 1/3 of the world’s nuclear weapons.

  • StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return!

    Off topic here sorry but just want to say if I may please :

    Mea culpa. I am sorry. I apologise to Ed Brayton and PZ Myers Singham and to y’all here for some of the things I’ve written on this blog before. Many of the things I’ve typed here before even. Earlier this year, maybe in past years too if memory serves – pretty definitely since I’ve been posting here however long ago that was. Those who know me from here & FTB generally know what I mean I hope. Maybe?

    I am sorry and, as cliched as it is, I actually do / did have Muslim friends / acquaintances, Muslim neighbours, in my life and I do worry for them now. Yes, that I am scared *for* them not worry of them right now despite recent events here in Oz. The Iranian family that lived next door to me and my family for a while – they were (are!) good people. The Muslim lecturers I used to know ,years ago; they were – are – good people. I don’t want them harmed and don’t want anyone harmed who isn’t out to harm others.

    I accept that I’ve said some Islamophobic things before here, yes, okay racist things even and I would like to now apologise for that now. If I could go back and take a lot of the hateful words I used to say here back now I would but since that’s impossible I’ll just say, well, this – I was wrong and I am sorry. You don’t have to accept my apology, I will understand if you don’t but its here on offer anyhow.

    I was wrong to call for bombing people and hurting people, I wasn’t trolling because I meant at the time what I said before but I accept now I was wrong to say a lot of those things, I did get carried away in the heat of argument and I was and am pretty messed up and, again, I was wrong and I am sorry. I will try to do and be better in future and make up for some of the damage I’ve caused.

    I said it before, I’ll say it again:

    “Funny game. The only winning move is not to play.”

    Somehow I doubt Vlad the Impalinator is feeling suicidal….


  • John Pieret

    He said that Americans will instead cry out to their “gay god” while Russia pummels the country with nukes. “Is your gay god going to come and save you?” he asked.

    Ricky, ‘splain, please. Are you leaving the US soon? If not, why are you talking about Americans in the third person? Or are you and all the rest of the Christian wingnuts going to be praying to the gay god too? If not, is your god going to abandon those good Christian Americans who sufficiently hate gay people despite their prayers? Inquiring minds don’t really give a shit but wonder if you think anything you say through.

    Rick Wiles hero Putin isn’t doing so well for Russia right now. Russia is an oil state and when oil prices crashed, their economy crashed.

    Paul Krugman blog Putin, Neocons and the Great Illusion

    New York Times‎ – 2 days ago

    … Great Illusion,” a treatise arguing that the age of conquest was or at least should be over

    Paul Krugman said a few days ago what I’ve said for a while. In a modern nation, war isn’t very cost effective. Wars cost a huge amount of money and don’t really yield much ROI.

    We saw this with Vietnam. Iraq was a war to make the world safe for cheap unleaded gasoline. It cost us $2 trillion, thousands of US lives, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives, and gas was still $4.00 a gallon.

    Krugman claims Putin is an ex-KGB thug who only knows one thing. How to beat up other people and nations. I don’t pay enough attention to evaluate that claim very well. But these days, national strength isn’t measured by how many countries you conquer. It’s by how well your economy is working and how well your citizens live.

    I don’t want to invade Canada. I want to buy lots of cheap stuff at Walmart. (Well not me specifically but many Americans do shop at Chinamarts.)

    Sorry, Putin. Russia’s economy is doomed – Washington Post

    www. washingtonpost.com /…/russias-economy-is-doomed-its-that-simple/

    Dec 15, 2014 – Russia’s economy imploded. … Oil is still falling, and ordinary Russians don’t want to hold their money in rubles even if they get … Rates that high will send Russia’s moribund economy into a deep recession—its central bank …

    Rick Wiles’ hero hasn’t done that much for Russia. Can we blame Obama for this? After all, he gets blamed for everything else.

    Psst Rick – he already has, twice. First time he was in completely the wrong place and 40 years too early, the second time* he was a little closer but still ten years too early… :(

    I cried out to my Gay God. I only had enough glitter for one rave. It lasted for eight. It was a Manukkah Miracle!


    StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return! “I will try to do and be better in future and make up for some of the damage I’ve caused.”

    It’s okay. It’s called “change”. Everybody says things they eventually regret.*


    * Except me. [lengthy pause] I think I made a spelling mistake once.

  • D. C. Sessions

    So he’s going to solve his problem of the USA restricting trade with his country by nuking us?

    Well, it is a creative response to the problem I suppose. All in all, though, I suspect that it reflects more on Wiles’ mental processes [1] than anything else.

    [1] Yes, ObQuirk

  • marcus

    Oh I’m so frightened!!! If only we hadn’t gutted our defense spending and given more money to the Pentagon!!!! Why did we get rid of all our nuclear weapons? We’re defenseless!!!!

    What are we going to doooooooo?????

  • marcus

    PS: Thanks Obama!

  • caseloweraz

    Raven: This is all rather stupid. Russia could in theory nuke us. We would just nuke them back. The USA has 1/3 of the world’s nuclear weapons.

    No. You see, God crafty deity that he is, is going to put us all to sleep first.

  • caseloweraz

    On the other hand, there’s precedent for God staying his hand if He finds one righteous person in the land he was going to obliterate. So, when the nuking never happens, Rick Wiles can say it was his presence in America that prevented the atom-bomb barrage.

    “Oooh — das pudiniy sneaky!”

    (h/t: the Brut cologne commercial spoofing Bobby Fischer and Boris Spaasky.)

  • Michael Heath

    Consider the level of evil needed for a god to slaughter hundreds of millions of his believers just because a relative handful won’t blindly submit to conservative Christians’ bigoted political agenda.

    All Hell-believing Christians, at least every single one I’ve encountered, fail to consider the implications of a supposed god who supposedly causes people to unjustly suffer. I.e., that such a god is inherently evil and in no way just, let alone defined by grace but instead best defined as the most evil extortionist who has a large congregation of devotees. It’s one of the biggest biblical contradictions ever that remains avoided and denied by Hell-believing Christians.

  • caseloweraz

    Nit: I couldn’t find that Brut commercial on YouTube. I guess it’s too old. But I did find that the Russian chess man’s last name is “Spassky”.

  • busterggi

    First, Saint Ronald slew the Russian monster years ago so no one would ever have to be afaid of it again – to say Russia is a threat is blasphemous.

    Second, I am protected from god’s wrath by a belt buckle I bought on Ebay that reads, “Gott Mitt Uns.” I know it must have worked for the original owner because god wouldn’t have abandoned one of his believers.

  • anubisprime

    “we’ve become a nation of homosexuals and atheists and lesbians and God-haters.”

    Yeaa!….rationality wins!

    . “Is your gay god going to come and save you?” he asked.

    Piss Wiles right off if ‘el fabulosa’ did just that!

    I mean anything has got to be more affective then their lazy, geriatric, brain challenged, schizoid, bigoted, homophobic, anti-reason, moron of a god…

    Maybe Rick…with a silent P…should understand a little more about global politics and a little less about pretending relevancy, coherency, and eerily informed to his cognitively impaired sycophantic audience.
