“Our booking team — and they’re good — reached out to Republicans of all stripes across the country today,” Smith said on his show “Shepard Smith Reporting.” “Let’s be honest, Republicans don’t often really mind coming on Fox News Channel. We couldn’t get anyone to come and defend him here because we thought, in balance, someone should do that,” he continued.

Who were those people who protested the “white nationalists” in Charlottesville yesterday? For starters, they included ANTIFA, a radical Liberal terror group that is every bit as disgusting as the Ku Klux Klan is. ANTIFA was there at the “Unite The Right” rally for the sole purpose of escalating the rhetotic until it became violence, which it certainly did. Who funds ANTIFA? George Soros does.

From violent campus protests to the shooting of a congressman, the violent, radical left is rising. But this should not surprise us at all. The handwriting has been on the wall for years.
What else do you expect when those who believe a child should have a mother and a father are likened to the KKK, Nazis, the Taliban, and ISIS? What else do you expect when Christian conservatives have been branded dangerous enemies?
To repeat what I’ve shared before,
Already in May, 2005, John McCandlish Phillips, formerly a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter, pointed out how newspapers like the Washington Post and the Times told their readers that evangelicals and traditional Catholics were engaging in a “jihad” against America.
Markos Moulitsas, founder of the radically left-leaning Dailykos.com, wrote a whole book in 2010 in which he accused conservative Christians of being the “American Taliban,” which in turn reflected the sentiments of some Californians who opposed the Proposition 8, pro-marriage bill in 2008 and who carried signs reading: Prop 8 = American Taliban; and, 52 percent = Nazi (this referred to the 52-48 percent vote in favor of Prop 8); and, Don’t Silence the Christians, Feed Them 2 the Lions.
My fellow believers, don’t stick your heads in the sand and ignore this.
People don’t just hate you. They see you as downright dangerous, and that in itself is dangerous.
Really now, do you think people who compare you to ISIS and the Nazis do not look at you as a real threat? Do you think they can hold up signs calling for you to be thrown to the lions without holding some genuine animosity towards you? And do you think that people who express themselves in such sick and ugly terms would be upset if someone actually did you harm?
To quote again from my previous article (which was published September, 2015, and drew on developments I had been tracking since 2004):
As Maggie Gallagher pointed out earlier this year, those who express extreme hatred towards conservative Christians in America “tend to hold relatively high levels of social power,” citing a recent book on “Christianophobia” by sociologists George Yancey and David A. Williamson.
And what does that hatred sound like? Gallagher quoted some of those interviewed by Yancey and Williamson:
“‘I want them all to die in a fire,’ said one man with a doctorate. ‘I would be in favor of establishing a state for them. … If not then sterilize them so they can’t breed more,’ said a middle-aged man with a master’s degree. ‘The only good Christian is a dead Christian,’ said another under-45-year-old man with a doctorate.
‘I abhor them and I wish we could do away with them,’ said a middle-aged woman with a master’s degree. ‘A tortuous death would be too good for them,’ said a college-educated man between the ages of 36 and 45. ‘They should be eradicated without hesitation or remorse,’ said an elderly woman with a master’s degree.”
To ask again: Is it any surprise that the violent words of these radical leftists have turned to violent deeds? These sentiments are chilling and disturbing, and they are indicators of what we can expect in the days ahead, with Christian conservatives being the ultimate target.
Remember also that the strategy for years has been one of silencing – not just refuting – the opposition.
That’s why I’ve stated for more than a decade that those who came out of the closet wanted to put us in the closet. And that’s why, after critics initially mocked me for saying that, they eventually changed their tune. For some time now they’ve been saying, “Bigots like you belong in the closet!”
A few years ago during a TV interview, I mentioned the comment of a Christian attorney who said, “Mike, it goes one step farther. Those who were once put in jail for their actions will want to put us in jail.”
The reaction to that comment was almost hysterical on some leftwing websites. “You’re totally crazy man! No ones to put you in jail.”
Then, when Kim Davis was jailed for refusing to comply with a judge’s order, she was likened to ISIS and her prison sentence was hailed as just. So it looks like some people do want us jailed after all.
I’m aware that some of the anger towards the right has been stirred up by the rhetoric of folks like Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannapolouis. And I fully understand how divisive a candidate (and president) Donald Trump has been, further stirring the pot.
But does that explain why campuses have banned conservative journalist Ben Shapiro from speaking? Or why students engaged in violent protests against conservative intellectuals like Heather Mac Donald and Charles Murray? Or why, in 2011, the University of Central Florida only allowed me to debate a local professor on same-sex “marriage” if we paid for four armed policemen to be present?
Today’s growing violence comes as no surprise, which means that: 1) We should expose its ugly roots. 2) We should expose its bankrupt ideology. 3) We should call out those who want to silence and intimidate the opposition, challenging them instead to open debate and dialogue. 4) We should determine not to reply in kind.
Violence doesn’t stop violence, it escalates violence. And while there’s a place for self-defense, there’s no place for the rising tide of radical leftist violence. Let’s confront it before it gets worse.

We thought it might be helpful if you could in one place all the organizations that George Soros’ billions have created and maintain. When you have absorbed this list, you will then have a pretty good idea how much Soros controls, and how unbelievably influential this man and his New World Order on American politics. The list is a little more than mind-boggling, and clearly shows just how impossible it is to get away from the demonic influence of this end times player.

Dear Senator Sanders,
I write this letter to you with respect and concern. Respect because of your years of service to our country and your terrific campaign last year. Concern because of your grilling of Russell Vought, President Trump’s nominee for Deputy Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, earlier this week.
Frankly, sir, I found your exchange with Mr. Vought to be quite alarming, not to mention downright un-American.
May I have your ear for a moment, Mr. Senator?
Although I am registered as an Independent rather than a Republican, I am strongly conservative, an so, in fundamental disagreement with much of your ideology. Yet when you rose to such national prominence last year, I found much to like about you.
You were unafraid to put your beliefs on the table. You were plainspoken rather than rhetorical. You had a great following among the younger generation. You had no history of ugly scandals in your past. And you had great passion and vision, in particular for a man in his 70’s.
All this was impressive to me, and, in candor, I felt that the election was stacked against you and in favor of Mrs. Clinton.
So, I bear no ill will towards you and I believe that you want what is best for America, as do I.
What concerns me is that you voted against Mr. Vought because of his mainstream, historic, Christian beliefs. You even stated that someone who holds to these values “is really not someone who this country is supposed to be about.”
With all respect, Mr. Senator, are you aware that Mr. Vought’s beliefs are far closer to those of many of our Founding Fathers than yours would be? And didn’t our Founders put in our Constitution that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
Yet you applied a religious test to Mr. Vought. On what basis?
Are you aware, sir, that his beliefs mirror those of some of our past presidents and Supreme Court justices, along with the beliefs of some of your esteemed colleagues in Congress? Most importantly, are you aware that Mr. Vought’s beliefs are taken straight from the New Testament?
You took exception to his quite orthodox statement that, “Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ, His Son, and they stand condemned.”
Is it possible you misunderstood the meaning of these words? Could it be that you took them to mean something that Mr. Vought never intended?
After asking him if he felt he was statement was “Islamophobic,” which, of course, he did not, you asked him, “Do you believe people in the Muslim religion stand condemned?” This was followed by, “What about Jews? Do they stand condemned too? . . . do you think that people who are not Christians are going to be condemned?”
The answer for any Bible-believing Christian is simple. Yes, every human being stands condemned before God and in need of a Savior. That’s why God sent Jesus to die for our sins, and that’s why we send missionaries around the world to declare this message of salvation. May I give you the biblical context for this belief?
I imagine that, somewhere in your lifetime, you’ve heard the most famous verse in the New Testament: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
Does that sound familiar? These are the verses that comes next: “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:17-19, my emphasis).
Did you note those words, Mr. Senator? The New Testament is stating clearly that all human beings stand condemned in God’s sight because we have chosen our ways rather than His. For that reason, He sent Jesus into the world, not to condemn us but to save us.
That means that you, too, stand condemned before God, no matter how much good you have done. But you are not alone. Billions of others find themselves in the same predicament. The good news is that the same solution applies to all: trusting the Savior to forgive our sins and change our hearts.
Are you saying, then, that anyone who subscribes to these historic Christian beliefs is not fit to serve our country, even as Deputy Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget? Does that not strike you as standing in fundamental violation of the very principles on which our nations was founded? Isn’t this a classic example of advocating for freedom from religion rather than freedom of religion?
By your logic, not only would Mr. Vought (and as mentioned, quite a few of your colleagues) not be fit to serve, but a devout Muslim could not serve either, since Muslims believe that Jews, Christians, Hindus, and others must become Muslims to be saved. And what about an Orthodox Jew who believes that you, a non-observant Jew, are guilty of violating Torah and thereby sinning against God? Should that Orthodox Jew not be allowed to serve?
What if Mr. Vought had answered your questions by quoting the words of Jesus? What if he said, “Sir, I believe in Jesus Christ, who said, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'” (John 14:6) Would you have replied, “Well, if you believe what Jesus said, you can’t serve our country.” Really?
As a Christian, Mr. Vought would be duty bound to treat everyone with kindness, respect, and fairness, regardless of their religious beliefs. And as someone who loves God, he would have expected to love his neighbor as himself. This too is part of his faith.
Yet you voted against him solely based on his standard, orthodox beliefs in the exclusivity of salvation through Jesus, stating, to repeat, he “is really not someone who this country is supposed to be about.”
To the contrary, sir, he is what this country has been about since the days of our first settlers. And it is people like him – people of robust faith who genuinely care about others – who this country needs today.
Perhaps, by now, one of your staff members has suggested to you that you misunderstood Mr. Vought’s statement and that, perhaps, you treated him unfairly.
If not, I do hope you will take to heart what I’ve written here, humble yourself and apologize, and then evaluate this candidate based on his overall qualifications.
If, however, you fully understood what Mr. Vought believed and for that very reason found him unfit to serve, then my concern is greatly intensified. You would then be advocating for an American that would become tyrannical and oppressive. And you would be declaring war on some of our most precious and fundamental freedoms.
Is that really the America that you want, Mr. Senator?

Montana Dobrovich-Fago, the freshman class president, had submitted a Donald Trump quote to go beneath her picture. But when she got her yearbook on Wednesday, the quote wasn’t there, even though the other class presidents were included, even the senior class president’s quote by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

The activists joined together outside Trump tower on Thursday to sit down together and enjoyed their first meal after sunset, known as iftar, during the sixth day of Ramadan. Fatoumata Waggeh, 26, said she decided to take part in the protest to denounce ‘rhetoric they are spreading around Muslims.’ While Muslims ate together and prayed, a group of Jewish activists showed solidarity by surrounding them as they prayed.
