World Net Daily and Molotov Mitchell Want To Kill You

Jim Burroway

February 18th, 2010

World Net Daily posted this video a month ago, but it didn’t get much notice. Now it’s on YouTube, and everyone with an ounce of decency are horrified at Mitchell’s enthusiastic call to execute gay people. He calls their Anti-Homosexuality Bill “more American than Americans.”

Believe it. There really are people who want to kill you. Some are even willing to brag about it.

He’s a PFOX buddy. Not exactly sure how (yet), but he’s “worked for years” with them.

Not exactly surprising.

I am so sick of conservative nut jobs talking about the “founding fathers” like they were some mystical infallible deities. They weren’t perfect. They made mistakes. Some owned slaves. Women votes? Hell no!

He says that if gay Ugandans don’t like the law, they should leave. Yeah, ok. I say if you think gay sex is an abomination unto the lord, then DON’T HAVE GAY SEX!

Slavery was also legal in all 13 colonies when the Founding Fathers penned the Constitution. Slavery is condoned in the Bible. In the interest of fairness, upholding God’s Law above the laws of men, and For The Record, World Net Daily must now support slavery.

Also, women cannot be counted as equal to men – those were the laws when our Founding Fathers penned the Constitution, and is required by Biblical Scripture. So, World Net Daily must also condemn with equal conviction, equal rights for women.

And the stoning of adulterers.
And blood sacrifice to atone for our sins.
And a host of other atrocities specifically required by Scripture.

Next you’re oging to be insisting that people love one another.

Following this rhetoric to its logical conclusion, it is time to reinstate burning at the stake for heretics. As a member of the only true faith(TM) – Roman Catholic, of course – I get to determine who is an who is not a heretic.

Assuming Mr. Mitchell worships in the Protestant heresy, perhaps he erred in using “Molotov” as a nickname.

It’s the sort of thing that WND would feature on their site.

Another story I liked from WND was this one ( entitled “Kids attend prom from ‘sexual hell.'”

Today WND promotes a Whistleblower magazine. (
“‘Why psychologist group embraces same-sex marriage’ by David Kupelian, who asks why the American Psychological Association promoted adult-child sex as harmless in its peer-reviewed journal.”

I’m guessing that’s a reference to the 1998 Rind study? I’m not sure. But it’s mind-boggling to think that the author thinks this is somehow is connected to same-sex marriage. WND is good for laughs.

“gay Ugandans don’t like the law, they should leave.” ?

He obviously hasn’t actually read the bill. What about the provisions for convicting Ugandans in other countries?

If we’re really supposed to abide by laws and rules from the time of the founding off this country,

Concerned Women For America is poised to be charged with witchcraft.

A great deal of congress (repubs and dems) as well as many people of the cloth should start wearing their scarlet “A” right about now.

But for WND nuttery you cannot beat the six part series on soy which started with

Soy is making kids ‘gay’

Yes this was on WND not the Onion, and it was not satire:

Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality. That’s why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today’s rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products.

Just saw the moderation tag on my post. I acknowledge that I got really heated and broke the rules, and for that I apologize. But I don’t apologize for the sentiment.

This video, along with recent calls for our criminalization by the FRC and AFA, makes perfectly clear what has been obvious for a long time: The religious right is out for our blood and wants nothing less than our destruction.

I grew up in the Northwest, and one of the first things I learned about staying safe in the woods is that when you’re confronted by a cougar, you should immediately make as much noise as possible while picking up whatever is handy and throwing it at the animal and charging at it, resisting the urge to show any sign of fear. The goal is to tell it, in nature’s language, that you’re stronger and more powerful and that it would be unwise to mess with you, with the hope of persuading it to run up the nearest tree. You’re not going to make friends with it by going up, saying “Awww, what a cute kitty! Will you be nice if I pat you on the head?”

I do not and never have advocated preemptive violence against even our worst enemies, but the religious right people are increasingly showing themselves for the predatory bullies they are. And the only way to prevent them from bullying us is to tell them, like the allegorical cougar, that when they mess with us, we’ll happily mess with them. That doesn’t necessarily mean violence, but it does mean giving them something to lose instead of just whimpering and holding a candlelight vigil whenever they step on us.

Behind their “love the sinner, hate the sin” rhetoric lies a clear and present urge to exterminate us. What we’re seeing in Uganda, Kenya and Malawi is a petri dish of what they want for the U.S. If you think it couldn’t happen here, just look Germany and Rwanda — desperation mixed with demagoguery is all it takes to turn decent people into monsters.

And all of those people who might condemn the venom spewed by the likes of Mitchell and say they “love homosexuals” but then trot off to vote for something like Prop. 8 while calling our “lifestyle” immoral are no better than “Good Germans” who did nothing while the Jews and others were shipped off. Prop. 8 and those who support it are what make room for more sinister violations of our humanity, and I think they too would do nothing to help us if this country started making incremental moves toward gay genocide. After all, even Rick Warren had to be pressured to speak out on Uganda.

We’re not dealing with reasonable, moral people, but evil people and foot soldiers who countenance and in many cases support evil, all under the conviction that they’re doing the world a favor. I have no moral qualms about wishing a plague upon someone like Molotov Mitchell because I don’t make a moral equivalence between the hatred felt by the oppressed toward his oppressor and the hatred of the oppressor for the oppressed.

We seriously need to stop being all lovey-dovey, trying to make nice with the religious right and worrying about “sinking to their level” and also stop assuming that these people are little more than silly, ignorant buffoons who will soon disappear. I’d rather survive than preoccupy myself with smug feelings of moral superiority.

If you want to wish people plagues or hint at endorsing violence, do it somewhere else. I’m serious.

There are literally hundreds of sites that welcome expressions of hatred. But this is not the site for that and it will not be tolerated.

There is so very much wrong with what he says that it is hard to know where to begin. I will just say this; he should think long and hard before quoting the Old Testament as containing the laws that we should live by while jabbing at the camera with his tatooed arm since this is what it says about tatoos:

Leviticus 19:28 (Amplified) “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

But social conservatives don’t CARE about the sovereignty of a county unless it: Suits. Their. Agenda.

AJD, I agree very much with your second comment. I didn’t see the first, so I guess it was removed.

“Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.”___Blaise Pascal

There is nothing quite like having the endorsement of a deity to provide certainty and confidence for the goodness and rightness of deeds. They are capable of exterminating us with a warm and friendly smile — because they know they are pleasing God.

totally uncool.

I’m sorry, but equating voting Yes on Prop 8 with Nazi Germany is as nutty as the guy in this video. If 52% of Californians wanted us dead, we’d be dead by now. I think knowing there are these people out there is good. Knowledge is power. But equating this man with your average Christian is as wrong as equating NAMBLA with your average gay man. We’re winning this fight. And we’re doing it without the histrionics and the lies that the other side uses. That’s something to he proud of.

He doesn’t know his Bible very well. It clearly says “Jesus is the end of the law for the believer: Rom. 10:4”

Just because he quotes the Bible (MISQUOTES!) doesn’t mean he speaks for God, Jesus, or true Christianity. This is a very sick, very religious man. I am so tired of people like this hijacking faith to advance their very UN-Christ-like agendas!
