@DrewDad,
Well, it starts with him playing Soul Train Scramble with his favorite buzzwords and coming up just short of oligarchy (I won't spoil it for you) and it ends with him promising that tomorrow (today) he'll have some very specific instructions for us on how we can take back our republic because the gloves are coming off.

I wasn't kidding when I said he scares me.

@Ticomaya,
I think you have to tune it at 5.

I just have one favor to ask, Tico. If you come to my house with a machete, please remember I've been kind to you. And spare the children.

Glenn is very tame compared to this guy. I wonder if Okie, Foxfyre and others will have as much to say in denouncing this guy as they did regarding Reverend Wright or if this guy's spew will change their opinions of Reverend Wright's sermons at all. You can listen to the audio of it here:

Christopher Broughton's Pastor Steven Anderson Prays for President Barack Obama's Death
By Stephen Lemons in Feathered Bastard
Wednesday, Aug. 26 2009 @ 1:30PM

Pastor Steven Anderson, wishing death on the 44th President of the United States

​Remember the crazy Tempe pastor who was Tasered at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint *** back in April: Steven Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church? The same fella that Christopher Broughton, the anti-Obama, anarchist AR-15-carrying activist, declared to be his pastor on conspiranut moonhowler Alex Jones' radio show?

Well, as has been reported on Crooks and Liars and MSNBC, the day before Broughton brought his loaded assault rifle to a demonstration outside where the President was speaking in downtown Phoenix, Pastor Anderson was preaching hate for President Obama, and praying for the Chief Executive's death.

And when I say, "preaching hate," I don't mean that as a figure of speech.

"God hates Barack Obama," the preacher told his congregation. "I hate Barack Obama."

In a rambling, hour-plus sermon that knocks "sodomites," disses Pentecostal Christians, and offers up a birther fantasy of Obama playing baseball in Kenya as a child with a stick and a mango, Anderson talked about how Obama would be in town the next day, and that some of his parishioners might be attending, although he couldn't personally make it due to previous plans.

For Anderson, Obama cannot be "saved," and because Obama backs access to abortion for women, he deserves to die.

"You're gonna tell me that I'm supposed to pray for the socialist devil," asked Anderson, rhetorically, referring to Obama, "[this] murderer, infanticide, who wants to see young children, and he wants to see babies killed through abortion and partial birth -- and all these other things -- you're gonna tell me I'm supposed to pray for god to give him a good lunch tomorrow, while he's in Phoenix, Arizona. Nope. I'm not going to pray for his good. I'm going to pray that he dies and goes to hell. When I go to bed tonight, that's how I'm going to pray."

Obama's death, in Anderson's eyes, would be just punishment for advocating for a woman's right to choose. Calling Obama, "one of the rulers of the darkness of this world," and drawing upon fire and brimstone from the Old Testament, he gets wierdly graphic about what he'd like to see done to the POTUS.

"If someone's gonna twist my arm behind my back," he tells the sunday-go-to-meetin' crowd, "and tell me to pray for Barack Obama -- this is what I'm going to pray, because this is only prayer that applies to him: Break his teeth, oh God, in his mouth, as a snail which melteth, let him pass away, like an untimely birth of a woman -- that he thinks -- he calls it a woman's right to choose, you know, he thinks it's so wonderful, he ought to be aborted. It ought to be, `Abort Obama,' that ought to be the motto."

Anderson also makes clear that his message is political as well as religious:

"Obama is overturning the U.S. Constitution, overturning the Declaration of Independence, overturning everything we believe as a country, overturning 200 some years of history. He is the revolutionary. And it's a socialist, communist revolution. We are the counter-revolutionaries, saying, `No, we don't want change.'"

Was Christopher Broughton in the congregation that Sunday, August 16? Did he hear and absorb this message from the man he described as "my pastor" on Alex Jones' August 20 radio show?

"Let me tell you something, I don't love Barack Obama," intoned the wacky pastor the day before Obama's arrival on August 17, "I don't respect Barack Obama. I don't obey Barack Obama, and I'd like to see Barack Obama melt like a snail tonight. Because he needs to recompense, he needs to reap what he's sown.

"You see, any Christian will tell you that someone who commits murder should get the death penalty...And when Barack Obama is gonna push his partial birth abortion, his salty saline solution abortion, hey, he deserves to be punished for what he's done."

This is the church AR-15-slinger Christopher Broughton said he "proudly" attends; "the best church in the world," according to him.

And this is why I can't blow off what Broughton did by bringing his loaded AR-15 outside the President's address to the VFW. I don't think it was just a stunt. Rather, I think it's a disturbing harbinger of what's to come.

***I should note that it was actually an Arizona DPS officer who Tasered Anderson at the Interstate 8 U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in April. Border Patrol agents were involved in his arrest, and Anderson says they abused him as well, but it was a DPS guy who fired the Taser at Anderson. I made a minor correction to the copy to hopefully avoid any confusion on this point.

@FreeDuck,
He makes perfect sense to me. If you select the words you want, and then circle the letters you want, and then make up the ones you are missing, you can definitely make the word Oligarchy. What that has to do with anything though, I don't know.

There's another fun game where you take any written paragraph and black out words until you get something funny, incriminating, obscene or all three. Endless fun for 10 year-olds being raised by wolves.

That's only when they're playing hardball. Tomatoes are just for practice.

He said he was missing a letter ... I assumed he meant the "c".

I was wrong.

Sounds like some magical thinking going on. May be that Glenn Beck is close to taking the lithium express.

You have been kind, and I will remember it.



But you might hide the children anyway.
