Wiles: Russia Will Invade US Because of The Gay

Rick Wiles went on an unhinged rant on his radio show aimed at an Alaskan radio station that stopped airing his show. The rant went from the errors of premillenial eschatology to a claim that Russia is going to invade the United States through the Bering Straits because we’re now a “land of sodomites.”

Wiles was outraged that this view is widely held among conservative Christians today, but the real target of his wrath was the board of directors of Christian radio station KATB in Alaska, which voted to stop broadcasting Wiles’ radio show just three days after it began airing on the station because he preached against this doctrine.

But it is Wiles who will have the last laugh, he declared, when Russia invades Alaska as God’s judgment upon America for homosexuality.

“All I can say to the KATB board of directors is you guys will be the first people to see the Russian soldiers moving across the Bering Strait to invade the continental U.S.A. and bring judgment to this country for becoming a land of sodomites,” Wiles said. “Don’t worry. You will be raptured before World War III begins, right?”

We can, of course, take this as seriously as every other absurd prediction he has made. According to him, conservative Christians should all be in concentration camps right now because of Ebola.

    Ah, but they are! Obama has just left a few like Wiles out and about so nobody notices.

    Er, uh, let me get this straight* –

    Manly hetero-hero Vladimir Putin wants to manhandle his way through the US (even leaving muddy bootprints on Sarah Palin’s porch!) to get his muscular mitts on the macho models of ManDate magazine?

    *Okay, perhaps not the best adjective under the circumstances…

  • Larry

    Actually, it will probably be the guys on Deadliest Catch that are the first to see the Rooskis crossing the Bearing Strait. They may not know it, but they’re now our first line of defense. Hopefully, they are able to fling those crab pots with high precision.

  • busterggi

    So Putin is jealous of our gay? That might explain all the shirtlessness and posing.

    I looked up this “pre-tribulation” concept and man, is my head hurting. The debates among end-time believers over precisely when the rapture will occur with respect to the tribulation take innumerable twists and turns, yet none of them seems to realize that they’re all just pulling it out of their asses. They’re arguing fanatically over who has the correct hallucination.

    Rick Wiles went on an unhinged rant…

    Ok, so what is a “hinged rant”? This nutter screaming his head off whilst standing on a trapdoor? Which raises the interesting question, Just what should be in the pits / mazes underneath that trap door? And — Who gets to put the lever?

  • Reginald Selkirk

    Wait… Russia doesn’t like the gay.

    We are the land of the gay.

    So they’re going to come here? Did I miss a step somewhere?

    We should’ve left the Jaegers there. Do you really think the Wall of Life will keep them out.

     

    blf “Ok, so what is a ‘hinged rant’?”

    After I failed my Saving Throw my thief got poisoned by a hinged rant. True story.

    Remove brain or Disengage from reality, perhaps?

    They will be greeted as liberators by conservatives, I’m sure. A cakewalk.

    Alaska is not CONUS.

    When a Christian radio station in Alaska cuts you loose after three days, you REALLY need to ask yourself, “Just how far from the pack have I strayed?”

    Bonus quiz: Where did I steal that quote from?

    Bonus bonus quiz: which is correct, “Where did I steal that quote from?” or “From where did I steal that quote?”

  • blf

    Bonus bonus quiz: which is correct, “Where did I steal that quote from?” or “From where did I steal that quote?”

    (Rising to the bait…) Both are understandable, and hence “correct”. To attempt to avoid confusion, I’d suggest an alternative similar to this: “What might be the original source of that quote? I ‘stole’ that quote I am asking about.”

    Wiles has apparently forgotten Canada is in-between Alaska and the rest of US. Perhaps the horrors of Canada, like 10 years of gay marriage and right wing political parties that occasionally have policies to the left of Obama, have caused him to forget it exists.

    Anyone else want to see Wiles and Scott Lively duke it out? Given Lively’s Putin fanboyism I would imagine Wiles thinks he’s a class A traitor.

    Larry@3, the Hilstrand brothers often have firearms on their boat, the Time Bandit. I’m sure a crew of hard living, patriotic American fishermen can hold off an entire Russian invasion fleet by themselves.

  • JustaTech

    Timgueguen @15: And I’m sure the sensible Norwegian Americans (the Hansens) of Seattle will haul tail back to port to actually tell somebody. I’m not sure if anyone would believe the Time Bandit (who I once saw driving through Seattle to points south).

  • Jared James

    cervantes @5: it’s all fanon. When you read/listen to Franklin Graham, John Hagee, Wiles, Rios, and so on talking about the Rapture, only their extremely narrow interpretation is accurate to the writer (the Almighty Creator of the Universe, obviously) and anyone else must be shunned and despised as an infidel who would lead The People astray…almost exactly like insisting your particular reading of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or Jane Eyre is the only possible interpretation as Jo Rowling/Tolkien/Bronte intended, and all others are heretics, illiterates, or worse.

    I always wonder, sometimes worry, about the right. Their core are addicted to outrage and are desperate take their rhetoric to the next level. They have over a year left to go and they are maxed out. Frequently across the line of credibility. They have peaked too soon. The next level is self parody.

    I read this and wonder if Rick Wiles has ever seen the classic Spinal Tap “up to eleven” routine. If he has seen it I suspect he identified with the desire to take things “up to eleven” but he, based upon this piece, never really understood that this bit is parody.

    Blf (#13) – surely you mean : “I ‘stole’ the quote about which I am asking”? :)

    @18. Lorn : “Frequently across the line of credibility. They have peaked too soon. The next level is self parody.”

    Next level? I thought self-parody was their current level or even for a few of them a few levels further down!

    PS. Your video despite being embedded there apparently “does not exist” -at least that’s the message & all I see when I click play on it.

    @16. JustaTech :

    ..I’m sure the sensible Norwegian Americans (the Hansens) of Seattle will haul tail back to port to actually tell somebody.

    I’m pretty sure if the Russians fleet were that far along towards the invasion the USA would already know and be sending its planes out to meet (& sink) it. I really don’t think an invasion of the USA by the Russians is either at all practical or likely somehow. Given both sides have nukes and all. Conflict in Ukraine, maybe plausible. A direct invasion? Nah.

    @11. vereverum :

    Actually it kinda is – continental that is. Just not contiguous. Alaska is, after all, on the North American landmass.

    Leaving aside the question as to whether Russia could possibly keep an army marching south from Alaska supplied, does it even have the sealift to land an army in Alaska in the first place these days?

    .

    You mean ” That quote – stolen by me – about which I am asking, is*”, surely?

    .

    * The quoted sentence, otherwise correct if ungainly, surely needs a verb of some sort, implied or otherwise, and apparently none other will do, without adding verbs heretofore neither heard nor implied. (Or is that inferred? [scratches head])
