‘Christian’ Evangelist Urges Fathers To Shoot Any Trans People Who Show Up In Bathrooms

Perhaps you’ve heard of James Dobson. He’s the founder and president of a right-wing group known as Focus on the Family, and he’s also a massive heap of human excrement who has attacked President Obama in his sermons, alleging the President is a “tyrant [who] assault[s] centuries of modesty and moral beliefs.”

In a new article Dobson wrote for the extremist website World Net Daily, this so-called Christian is calling on those who have daughters to take matters into their own hands and shoot any transgendered person they see in a public restroom.

Dobson begins his psychopathic online rant by recalling a memory from his childhood when he “accidentally” walked into the girl’s bathroom at school:

“I was mortified beyond belief. I sneaked back into class and looked at the floor, wondering who might have witnessed my unthinkable crime. That was decades ago, but I haven’t forgotten my humiliation. The cardinal rule is that boys and girls never entered each other’s private facilities. Never!”

Just a little uptight when it comes to the matter of gender and sex, aren’t we, Jim? Makes us all wonder what other perversions you are fond of indulging in.

So this bloodthirsty asshole has a solution to the problem: Fathers should take the matter into their own hands and begin shooting any trans person they happen to see. Dobson writes:

“If you are a dad, I pray you will protect your little girls from men who walk in unannounced, unzip their pants and urinate in front of them. If this had happened 100 years ago, someone might have been shot. Where is today’s manhood? God help us!”

Yep, that’s what is known as a call to murder, and it’s coming from a man who says he’s a Christian!

Before he finished, Dobson also got some cheap shots in at President Obama:

“Obama, acting like a king, is wielding dictatorial powers never envisioned in the law. He is determined to change the way males and females relate to one another, and worse, how children perceive themselves. If you are a married man with any gumption, surely you will defend your wife’s privacy and security in restroom facilities. Would you remain passive after knowing that a strange-looking man, dressed like a woman, has been peering over toilet cubicles to watch your wife in a private moment? What should be done to the pervert who was using mirrors to watch women and girls in their stalls?”

Of course, if we used Dobson’s twisted logic, he too would be dead right now: Someone would have gunned him down when he made that supposedly mistaken (wink wink) turn into the girl’s bathroom. At least then we wouldn’t have to listen to this intolerant sack of dung urge others to kill others in the name of God.

Fox News/Rasmussen Poll Reversal Now Shows Clinton Beating Trump

Last week, Fox News released a poll conducted by Rasmussen which showed GOP nominee Donald Trump beating Democrat Hillary Clinton by a margin of five percent. The poll sent shock waves throughout the political world, with many pundits saying it now looked like perhaps Trump could indeed win the general election.

But wait a minute. Not so fast. Rasmussen has conducted a new poll, and this one shows Clinton besting Trump by a margin of 40 to 39 percent. Why the reversal in so short of a time period? According to Rasmussen:

“Last week in the debut White House Watch survey, Trump held a 42% to 37% lead, but hypothetical matchups between the two likely major party presidential candidates have been close since Rasmussen Reports first began them last October.

“Neither candidate is showing any significant gain in support and appears to have yet dented the unfavorable perceptions that many voters have of them.”

Translation: Rasmussen screwed up with their statistical modeling and the way they conducted the first poll. Hell, they may have screwed this one up, too, but they’ll never admit that because to do so would destroy whatever shred of credibility they still have left.

Additionally, the new Rasmussen poll also provides this information:

Clinton earns 77% of the Democratic vote, while 72% of Republicans say they favor Trump. Both candidates draw 12% of support from voters in the opposing party. Among voters who say they are not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads 34% to 30%, but 37% prefer someone else or are undecided. Clinton posts a 16-point advantage among women, but Trump leads by 12 points among men.

Other national polls have shown Clinton beating Trump by margins as large as six points, and it seems likely that the pollsters at Rasmussen realized their data had to be flawed if they were the only ones showing Trump up by a margin as large as five percent.

Polls are not a science by any stretch of the imagination, but they are helpful tools for campaigns. Rasmussen’s polling always leans to the right because they bias their questions, their sample size, and their pool of respondents to fit their agenda. In other words, if Rasmussen says something, you’d be better off ignoring them and remembering they poll for Fox News, which has a vested interest in promoting the Republican nominee.

Once the Democratic race is decided next week and Clinton is the nominee, the party will unify and the polls will begin to show a surge for Clinton. By November, that surge could well translate into a historic victory for Democrats.

WATCH: Trump Spokesperson Compares Trump University To Harvard

How delusional is GOP nominee Donald Trump and the staff that works for his campaign? Well, one of them compared Trump’s failed Trump University to Harvard this morning on CNN, so that kinda says it all, doesn’t it?

Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson–who may well be just as annoying as her boss–was discussing the recent comments Trump made about a federal judge in the case filed by former Trump University students. Specifically, Trump remarked:

“I think Judge Curiel should be ashamed of himself. I think it’s a disgrace that he’s doing this. The judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican…I think the Mexicans are going to end up loving Donald Trump.”

CNN host Alisyn Camerota questioned why Trump had brought the judge’s ethnicity into the matter:

“Katrina, ‘We believe he’s Mexican,’ what is that?”

But Pierson decided to make a ludicrous comparison that is still difficult to believe, saying that suing Trump University is:

“Like saying if you graduate from Harvard and you don’t have the same outcome in your profession as everyone else, you should sue Harvard. And that’s just simply absurd.”

WTF?! Did she just say that? Camerota told Pierson:

“All sorts of things were over promised, that Donald Trump was going to playing a more active role than he was, that there was more of a rate of job success than really was true.”

This led Pierson to attack the judge in the Trump U case:

“I think what is really interesting about this particular judge — as Mr. Trump refers to him as a Trump hater — is he even mentions on his judicial questionnaire that he was a La Raza lawyers association member. This is an organization that has been out there organizing these anti-Trump protesters with the Mexican flags, they are pushing it, these signs have been very apparent.

“And so, Mr. Trump is just stating the obvious.”

Camerota was ready for Pierson, informing her:

“But this judge isn’t Mexican. He was born here. He’s American.”

And like Trump himself, Pierson began trying to backtrack and lie her way out of the mess she was in:

“I’m not saying he’s Mexican.”

Camerota:

“But Mr. Trump is saying he’s Mexican.”

Once more Pierson tried to bring up the La Raza issue, arguing that the judge in the case “is connected to that.”

Perhaps, Camerota said, but:

“You recognize — you’re saying Mr. Trump was wrong.”

Pierson tried again to do damage control:

“I don’t know if he’s Mexican. I don’t know his heritage or his descent.”

That’s when Camerota slammed the interview door closed, telling the daft Pierson:

“Okay, for the record, he’s American”

Watch for yourself. It’s always fun to see a Trumpite get schooled:

WSJ Editor Says Trump Needs To Be Destroyed To Teach GOP Electorate A Lesson

While the Republican Party appears to be falling into line behind 2016 GOP nominee Donald Trump, not everyone in the conservative ranks is happy with that’s happening to their party.

Wall Street Journal opinion page editor Bret Stephens appeared on CNN over the weekend and told host Fareed Zakaria that Trump needs to be soundly beaten in November as way of teaching GOP voters a lesson:

“I most certainly will not vote for Donald Trump. I will vote for the least left-wing opponent to Donald Trump and I want to make a vote that makes sure he is the biggest loser in presidential history since, I don’t know, Alf Landon.”

Stephens was far from finished excoriating Trump, adding:

“It’s important that Donald Trump, or what he represents, this kind of quote ‘ethnic conservatism or populism,’ be so decisively rebuked that the Republican Party and the Republican voters will forever learn their lesson that they cannot nominate a man so manifestly unqualified to be president in any way, shape or form.

“So they have to learn a lesson perhaps the way Democrats learned a lesson from McGovern in ’72.”

Zakaria then asked Stephens if the Journal would be stating its opposition to Trump on their editorial page and endorsing anyone else. Stephens said the newspaper had not endorsed a candidate since Herbert Hoover:

“And we will not repeat that mistake.”

Keep in mind that the Wall Street Journal is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who also controls the right-wing noise machine we know as Fox News. And yet one of his main editors is coming out strongly against Donald Trump. Makes you wonder if even Murdoch is worried about a Trump Administration.

Here’s the conversation with Bret Stephens from CNN:

Bernie Gets Slammed On ‘Meet The Press’ For Being ‘Hypocritical’ On Issue Of Superdelegates

The Democratic race for the 2016 nomination is almost complete, and the all-important California primary will be held on June 7. But already the race appears to be entering a phase that will–barring a miracle of epic proportions–make former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton the nominee.

Appearing on “Meet the Press” this morning, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders maintained there were still three paths for him to be victorious over Clinton, telling host Chuck Todd he will go to the superdelegates who are supporting Clinton and tell them:

“Do what the people in your state want. They voted for Bernie Sanders, you as the superdelegates should follow their wishes.

“We’re going to make the case for the superdelegates. Your job is to make sure that Trump is defeated, that Bernie Sanders, in fact, for a variety of reasons, not just polling, is the strongest candidate.”

That’s when Chuck Todd hit Sanders with a cold bath of reality:

“You’re saying you want them to respect the vote in their state, then at the same time, you say, ‘But oh, by the way, for those of you that are a superdelegate in a state that Clinton won, why don’t you think about the general election?’ It’s a little bit hypocritical to be on both sides of those issues.”

Sanders said it wasn’t:

“No, no, no, that’s not what I’m saying.”

Yes, it most certainly is, Senator. I love Bernie Sanders, have contributed money to him and voted for him in the primary, but his race is almost run. After the last primary votes are counted, Sanders will likely still be short on pledged delegates and will also have gotten 3 million fewer votes in the primaries than Clinton. And I’m hopeful he will see the importance of supporting the Democratic nominee and doing everything he can to assure that Donald Trump does not become President. Should he fail to do so, then this entire run has been about nothing but his own vanity.

Here’s Sanders on “Meet the Press” this morning:
