This weekend, so-called “New Right” media personalities fell in love with rapper Kanye West after he praised Candace Owens, the communications director at the youth-oriented Turning Point USA, who exists as a prominent “New Right” voice in conservative social media circles.

Last week, West returned from an almost year-long hiatus from Twitter and began posting a mix of mysticism epiphanies, self-help messages, and album announcements. On Saturday, West praised Owens:

I love the way Candace Owens thinks

— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 21, 2018

That tweet is all it took for right-wing media to fall for Kanye.

West’s positive tweet about Owens surprised many in the media and angered some of his liberal fans, who may know Owens from her days using the moniker “Red Pill Black”—which plays off terminology popularized on alt-right and men’s rights forum boards—and appearing on fringe outlets like Infowars, where she has denied the existence of systemic racism and claimed that white supremacists don’t exist. Owens is one of many conservative pundits who travel the media circuit with a narrative about leaving liberalism for conservatism while offering no tangible solutions to any issues aside from switching political parties.

Charisma, the Trump-supporting Pentecostal media operation, is promoting video of a sermon based in part on Republican operative and “historian” David Barton‘s book “Original Intent.” It’s the kind of sermon that should warm the hearts of Religious Right leaders like Barton and David Lane, who complain that pastors aren’t preaching Christian-nation politics aggressively enough.

Charisma circulated a video excerpt of a sermon by Shane Idleman speaking at Westside Christian Fellowship in Leona Valley, California. “I’m so sick of this politically correct culture that can’t offend anyone—except believers,” said Idleman, charging that the culture is trying to silence the church and “the voice of truth.”

Waving his Bible, he said, “I’ll give you this when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands.”

“The pulpit sets the tone for the nation, not Fox News and CNN,” he said, arguing that Americans should look to the Bible for answers about immigration, guns, gay marriage, and other issues. But, he said, “they” want to “silence the pulpit. ‘You just do your little church stuff, let us control the world. Let us control the United States.’”

Idleman mentioned that he recently read “Original Intent,” one of Barton’s books, and he indeed sounded like it, …read more

John Guandolo, a disgraced former FBI agent turned radical right-wing activist, said on Friday that in a world where he was “anointed king,” he would want to execute many people, including Democratic and Republican leaders who he claims are advancing a radical Marxist Islamic agenda in the United States.

Religious Right radio host Sandy Rios hosted Guandolo on her show Friday morning, where he blamed the Southern Poverty Law Center, Antifa, and the Council on American–Islamic Relations for that fact that he had to scrap his Midwest conference tour due to venue cancellations. Guandolo said he believed that the cancellation of his tour was further evidence that an “Islamic movement” and Marxism were taking over the United States.

Rios asked Guandolo how we would fix that alleged problem “if somebody anointed John Guandolo king.”

“I’d actually use all the legal means at my disposal, which means that people actually committing sedition, I would arrest them and punish them to the fullest extent of the law—which means many of them I would execute,” Guandolo said. “Those people committing treason, I would do the same thing.”

He continued: “I would start with the people supporting the Islamic movement and the Marxist movement, …read more

Driven by mainly by the Christian conviction that sex-education is bad, and that schoolkids should be kept ignorant, a bunch of ‘concerned’ parents are today staging ‘Sex Ed Sit Out’ protests in multiple US cities as well as Australia and the UK.

According to this Life Site report, the protest, originally launched by a few moms on social media who were troubled by the graphic nature of current sex education resources in schools, has grown into a global movement.

Parents are demanding to know why their children are being taught how to have anal and oral sex, masturbate one another, and question one’s gender.

Caryl Ayala, a former public school teacher and organiser of the Austin, Texas, protest, said:

We are uniting with parents across the globe to demand that our rights as parents be respected regarding the teaching of sexuality and sexual orientation. Hands off our kids!

School districts such as Rocklin, California, and Fairfax County, Virginia, have recently been the focus of news headlines because of controversial, “gender-bending” and graphic sex education and anti-bullying programmes which parents say they were not informed would be taught to their children, sometimes as young as five years old.
