Pastor: Anti-Gay Bakers ‘Destroying America’ By Being Too Nice To ‘Some Faggot’ Wanting A Cake

Published

on

A homophobic pastor is attacking anti-gay bakers recently in the news – not for refusing to bake wedding cakes for same-sex couples, but for being too nice about it.

It’s rare to hear a religious extremist attack today’s icons of supposed anti-Christian persecution, but Pastor Steven Anderson is no ordinary religious extremist. As pastor of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, last year Anderson made national headlines after promising the world an “AIDS free world by Christmas” if America would merely “execute the homos like God instructs.” 

Pastor Anderson, whose church at one point appeared on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of anti-gay hate groups, is back, preaching to his congregation that, if the audio on the video below is correct, includes small children.

In this undated but recent clip, Anderson goes on a rant about Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, angered that Governor Mike Pence called for and signed into law a bill that clarifies the law cannot be used to discriminate against gay people. 

Anderson mocked Pence, saying, “we don’t want anyone to misunderstand the law because we don’t want anyone to think that they don’t have to serve homos because they do.” He added, “Then what is the law? What was it even for, then?”

But the bulk of Anderson’s attack was aimed at the owners of Memories Pizza, which walked away with over three-quarters of a million dollars after stating they would not cater a gay wedding, and Melissa Klein, of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, who was sued for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

Anderson labeled the Memories Pizza owners “weakling cowards” for closing down for a week after being attacked online and purportedly receiving death threats. And he attacked “all of the sodomites of the world,” who are “just raging and infuriated at this pizza place.”

“Who are these perverts who ordered a pizza for the wedding?” he demanded to know.

“These people are doubly perverted,” Anderson said. “Because not only are you perverting nature by being a sodomite, you’re catering your wedding with cheap pizza.”

Anderson insisted the family who owns Memories Pizza should have stood up to the LGBT community and its allies, namely, most of the U.S. Instead of cowering and “kow-towing” they should have proudly quoted bible verses and attacked the “animals” and “queers” without any apology for their faith.

Then Anderson took big hits at Melissa Klein, the owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa. Of course, he got most of the fact wrong in his sermon, but his overriding point again was, don’t be nice to gay people, proudly denounce them and refuse to serve them, like he does.

Anderson mocked Klein for crying on national TV. “I wasn’t trying to hurt these sodomites’ feelings,” he said, pretending to be Klein. “I don’t want to hurt anybody, but I just couldn’t cater this particular event, and I’ve made so many cupcakes for them.”

“This is just how I’ve chosen to live my live as a Christian,” Anderson continued to say, mocking Klein. 

He said he doesn’t feel sorry for the Kleins, “because you know what, they are compromising and they are not standing for the word of god an they are tools of the media to brainwash you,” Anderson shouted.

“We don’t serve queers in this church,” Anderson promised, wanting to know why the Kleins, whom he accused of attending a “liberal church,” were nice to their gay customers.

“The Bible does not say ‘Don’t hurt their feelings.’ The Bible calls them beasts!”

‘Who thinks it’s a hard decision if some faggot wants you to make them a wedding cake?,” Anderson polled his congregation. “Anybody struggling with that right now?”

Anderson insisted Melissa Klein is “is part of what is destroying America.”

“Christians, so called,” like Melissa Klein, Anderson preached, “who will not stand on the word of God, and who bow down and kowtow to these filthy perverts” by humbling explaining that their deeply held religious beliefs ban them from baking cakes for same-sex weddings, are “part of what is destroying America.”

‘The Law Is Clear’: Appeals Court Rules Trump Handpicked Judge Should Never Have Appointed Special Master

Published

on

A three-judge panel on the conservative 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled against Donald Trump, and effectively against his hand-picked federal district court judge Aileen Cannon in the ex-president’s “special master” case.

The judges, all three conservatives, two of whom appointed to the bench by Trump himself, ruled that Judge Cannon should never have agreed to Trump’s request to appoint a “special master” to review all the items the Dept. of Justice removed from his Mar-a-Lago residence by executing a legal search warrant.

Cannon had ordered the special master to specifically review approximately 100 classified documents, and blocked the DOJ from accessing them while they were under review. That block halted its investigation into Trump’s likely illegal retention of the documents and other items – over 10,000 – he removed from the White House and was string at Mar-a-Lago.

CNN calls Thursday’s ruling “a major defeat for former President Donald Trump.” The appeals court’s ruling halts  “a third-party review of documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate,” and “removes a major obstacle to the Justice Department’s investigation into the mishandling of government records from Trump’s time in the White House.”

“The law is clear,” the judges wrote in their ruling Thursday, posted by NBC News’ Daniel Barnes. “We cannot write a rule that allows any subject of a search warrant to block government investigations after the execution of the warrant. Nor can we write a rule that allows only former presidents to do so. Either approach would be a radical reordering of our caselaw limiting the federal courts’ involvement in criminal investigations.”

“And both would violate bedrock separation-of-powers limitations,” they continued. “Accordingly, we agree with the government that the district court improperly exercised equitable jurisdiction, and that dismissal of the entire proceeding is required.”

They also wrote: “In considering these arguments, we are faced with a choice: apply our usual test; drastically expand the availability of equitable jurisdiction for every subject of a search warrant; or carve out an unprecedented exception in our law for former presidents. We choose the first option. So the case must be dismissed.”

“The district court,” meaning Judge Cannon, “improperly exercised equitable jurisdiction in this case. For that reason, we VACATE the September 5 order on appeal and REMAND with instructions for the district court to DISMISS the underlying civil action.”

Right Wing Social Media Platform Parler Announces Kanye West Will No Longer Buy It in ‘Interest of Both Parties’

Published

on

After Kanye West‘s antisemitic and racist remarks last month, which led to him being deplatformed by Twitter and Instagram, the extremist artist and rapper announced he was purchasing the right wing “free speech” social media platform Parler, which performs little content moderation.

On Thursday, hours after West went on far right extremist and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ show and praised Adolf Hitler, Parler issued a statement saying by mutual agreement West would not be purchasing the platform.

But the Parler statement, which came from its parent company, also claimed the decision had been made weeks ago.

“In response to numerous media inquiries, Parlement Technologies would like to confirm that the company has mutually agreed with Ye to terminate the intent of sale of Parler,” Parler said on Twitter. “This decision was made in the interest of both parties in mid-November.”

On Thursday, stunning many, West told Alex Jones, “I see good things about Hitler,” as Consequence reported. “Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.” 

When West had agreed to purchase Parler, he stated, “In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves.”

CNBC reported last month that “Parler, which initially launched in 2018, was swept up in controversy last year over the role it played in the Jan. 6, 2021, riots at the Capitol building. That led a slew of tech companies, including Google and Amazon, to blacklist the service, rendering its app and website inaccessible.”

Parler’s CEO is George Farmer, who is married to far right commentator Candace Owens. Owens several years ago had her own Hitler-praising scandal.

Owens, promoting nationalism, told young supporters in London, “Whenever we say nationalism, the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler.”

“But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine. The problem is that he wanted, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalise. He wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German. Everybody to look a different way. To me, that’s not nationalism.”

Hitler was responsible for the slaughter of up to 17 million people.

RIGHT WING EXTREMISM

‘This Is Nazism’: Americans Outraged After Kanye West Praises Hitler – ‘This Is Not a Clown Show. It’s Dangerous’

Published

on

Disgraced rapper and antisemite Kanye West on Thursday praised Adolf Hitler while in an interview with far right extremist and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Many are expressing outrage online.

“I see good things about Hitler,” West told Jones, as Consequence reports. “Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.” 

In between those two remarks West launched into a plethora of lies about all the good things Hitler has done, including inventing the microphone (false) and highways (also false.)

West doubled down, exclaiming, “I like Hitler,” and said, “the Jewish media has made us feel like Nazis and Hitler have never offered us anything of value to the world.”

West, who brought a white supremacist with him to dine with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago last week, today also claimed he loves everyone but injected antisemitic tropes about contracts and pornography.

“I think most Jews are great people,” West said, while claiming, “I agree there’s a Jewish mafia.”

West, who goes by “Ye,” astonishingly “took credit for popularizing antisemitism,” Consequence reports, “saying, ‘No one in high school knew what antisemitic meant until Ye made it popular.'”

That, too, is a lie.

The outrage online is palpable.

U.S. Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) tweeted, “JUST NOW: ‘I see good things about Hitler, also. The Jews… Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.’
— Kanye West on far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ InfoWars show.”

“This is Nazism,” he added. “When are we going to say ENOUGH?”

Many pointed to a wildly offensive tweet posted by GOP Congressman Jim Jordan, who heads the House Judiciary Republicans. After nearly two months it was removed within minutes of West praising Hitler.

U.S. Rep. Eric Falwell (D-CA) blasted Jordan, saying: “for 2 months you were cool with Jew-bashing.”

Sam Stern of Politico and MSNBC took a wider view.

“We’re all gawking at Kanye saying he sees ‘good things about Hitler’ but i can’t escape the absolute dread that people who know no better and look up to this man and stumble upon this interview will be moved, even on the margins, by him,” he tweeted. “This is not a clown show. It’s dangerous.”

As did actor Josh Gad:

“It’s not what Kanye West says that scares me. It’s that he has 30 million followers who listen to his insanity on top of a cheerleader in the form of the current owner of this platform. No one who says “I love Hitler” should be allowed any oxygen on any social platform (period).”

There is video online of Kanye West’s vile remarks. NCRM will not post or link to it.
