Rick Wiles and Jim Bakker, Together at Last

Take one convicted TV evangelist con man and add in one of the most extremist and absurd voices on the Christian right and you have a recipe for a serious stupidity casserole. Jim Bakker welcomed Rick Wiles to his crappy little TV show and Wiles came loaded with a dump truck full of idiocy. Like America is now Nazi Germany:

“When you have a Antichrist man in the White House, whether it is this one or a future one, and he tells an atheistic, God-hating military, ‘These Christians are enemies of the state,’ do you think it would be hard for them to round us up?” Wiles asked, a prospect that Bakker said is already happening.

Wiles said that American leaders used the Nazi officials who came to the U.S. after World War II to teach them how to create their own Nazi-style, tyrannical state.

“There is a criminal cabal that runs this country, our beloved America has been taken over by a bunch of lying, thieving, murderous criminals, I don’t know what else to call them; they’re Nazis, I really believe it, they’re Nazis,” Wiles said. “The CIA brought 10,000 Nazis from Germany to the United States after World War II. We didn’t bring them over here to make them Boy Scouts. We brought them over here for them to tell us: how did Hitler do it? We brought their mad men over here to teach us how to build that Third Reich. What we’re dealing with in this country, you’re asking how did this happen. This Third Reich is here. This Nazism is here.”

With Christians rather than Jews as the targets, of course. I’m sure that prediction will turn out to be as true as his claims about 9 months ago that Obama was going to use Ebola to round up Christians into concentration camps. And all this, of course, is why God is going to destroy America…any day now.

Wiles claimed that he foresaw the September 11, 2001, attacks and knew that they were a message from God. However, America didn’t heed the message, and instead went ahead in inciting more divine wrath by legalizing same-sex marriage.

What might that punishment look like? Wiles, who once floated the possibility of a giant ball of fire striking the country in revenge for marriage equality, warned that the country may soon be destroyed in a fire for “exporting wickedness,” such as homosexuality and abortion rights, abroad, while Bakker said that judgment may come in the form of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions or an asteroid.

Which means, of course, that you should order a bunch of survival supplies from Bakker. Grifters gonna grift.

    “When you have a Antichrist man in the White House, whether it is this one or a future one…

    There’s more than one? Is that Eastern Orthodoxy or something?

    “The CIA brought 10,000 Nazis from Germany to the United States after World War II. We didn’t bring them over here to make them Boy Scouts. We brought them over here for them to tell us: how did Hitler do it? We brought their mad men over here to teach us how to build that Third Reich.

    Oh yes, makes perfect sense. Wernher Von Braun was brought here to do sociology and politics. That had to be it!

    Are there any listening figures for this (and the dozens of similar shows)

    I’d like to think there can’t be more than a few hundred, or maybe thousand people, but for all I know there could be tens of thousands of people listening along in agreement.

    Which was true, but luckily for Us Christians the plan proved ineffective. Ebola could barely hold the little lassos.

    Yes, the US will soon be destroyed for gay marriage by being struck with a fireball. Meanwhile Canada, where gay marriage has been legal for a decade, has been destroyed by zero giant fireballs. I suppose I’m being silly, because God only cares about the US, right?

    As for recruiting people from Nazi Germany that was for fighting the Commies, the kind of thing where one suspects Wiles and Bakker would assume the ends justify the means.

    A tenth of a percent of Americans would still be north of 310,000 and we got many more than that who are rabidly fundamental Xians.

    I thought the good Catholic and Lutheran Nazis were brought over to help us build rockets to murder godless Commies with by strapping God’s super-strength holy hand grenade to the top.

    Seriously, the scary thing is that this millions of Americans listen to discussions like this and think it actually makes sense, that this is how they believe normal people talk and view the world.

    Rick Wiles states:

    “When you have a Antichrist man in the White House, whether it is this one or a future one,

    It’s common to see conservative Christians make arguments where they refute themselves. What’s not so uncommon is that they do that prior to getting to the end of the first half of their sentence.

    “There is a criminal cabal that runs this country, our beloved America has been taken over by a bunch of lying, thieving, murderous criminals

    So far they only control the House and Senate.

    do you think it would be hard for them to round us up?” Wiles asked

    Round up more than 70% of the US population? Yes, yes, I do think that would be hard.

    When you have a Antichrist man in the White House, whether it is this one or a future one, and he tells an atheistic, God-hating military,

    Boy, I hope Mikey Weinstein doesn’t see that one while he’s drinking coffee. We’d be talking an epic spit take.

    He means “the right sort of Christians,” not those wishy-washy kinds of Christians who don’t lose their minds over same-sex marriage and don’t want to shoot urban [cough] “rioters” down in the streets.

    It would still (unfortunately) be too big a job to round up his kind of Christians.

    Naw, i think they just taught us to make moon rockets

    The CIA brought 10,000 Nazis from Germany to the United States after World War II … We brought them over here for them to tell us: how did Hitler do it?

    He should check up on the deal the USA did with the Japanese doctors in Unit 731. Now there’s a horror story for you. I’m pretty sure it is considered unethical for doctors to use the results of experiments performed on unwilling prisoners, but the USA doctors said fuck the ethics, we want the details – and if that means the Japanese doctors go free, well so be it. Most of the Unit 731 doctors were allowed to go free and the few who were imprisoned were all released by 1955.
