It is impossible to think of anyone more reprehensible,  opprobrious or mentally unbalanced than Baptist preacher Mike Huckabee and his venal, vitriolic, and vicious god who demands the blood sacrifice of children to satisfy his own cannibalistic lusts, unless it is Tim Scott of South Carolina. This Baptist preacher turned politician turned pundit for Fox News, Mike  Huckabee claims that the carnage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut was the result of his  ignominious, infamous, insignificant, grim-reaper god’s anger that religion had been forbidden to be indoctrinated in public schools.   He questioned on Fox News: “Should we be so surprised that schools have become a place for carnage because we’ve made it a place where we don’t want to talk about eternity, life, what responsibility means, [and] accountability?”

Huckabee was supported by the monstrous minister James Dobson, founder of the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family (certified hate groups; read here about the certification for the Family Research Council and its self-loathing Tony Perkins, and here and here and here for Focus on the Family), who is blaming America’s support for same-sex marriage as what propelled his god of hate to set the stage for the execution of the children in the same

way as he commanded Abraham to murder his son (Genesis 22:10), having earlier pushed Cain to kill Abel (Genesis 4:8), as the god would slay his own son (Matthew 27:46: אלהי למא שבקתני [ēlâhî ēlâhî lamâ šabaqtanî] The Aramaic word šabaqtanî is based on the verb šabaq, ‘to allow’, ‘to permit’).

The viciously, villanous, violently evil god of Huckabee, Timothy Dolan, Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI), Bob Vander Plaats, and all theological thugs and evangelical extremist exists in the bible, where the scatological scandalously savage satanic god of the Old Testament reigns in raw opposition and openly slaughters the innocents like the madmen of yesterday and today, from the purges of the Roman Empire to the death camps in Serbia and Nazi Germany to Newtown, CT where the most recent terrorist thoughtfully attended church with his mother, Nancy Lanza who was skilled with guns and a member of the Doomsday Preppers movement (many believe that President Obama is expediting the arrival of an Islamic antiChrist), arguing that to “be saved” people should prepare for end of the world with economic collapse and thus stockpiled guns, food, and ammunition.  Nancy’s fate was realized at the hands of her son, Adam, who shot her dead as his first victim after destroying his computer hard drive that had installed violent games portraying mass murders and killing.  Adam Lanza, named after the mythology of prophecies that Adam was the father of all generations and through his loins would come new generations, had a bigger plan: to kill everyone in the school–and more if the ammunition did not run out.

Westboro Baptist Church of Kansas celebrated the slaughter, as did evangelical extremists who carried signs in celebration of the deaths, claiming that it was god who sent “the shooter” in much the same manner as the Prophets pontificated their justification of Hebrew armies raping, pillaging and murdering.  The theology of hate that is integrated within the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation) and various racists groups that are sprinkled throughout the USA from Boone, Iowa (Ku Klux Klan headquartered in Iowa in Charles City), to Sovereign Citizen and Aryan Nation (it argues that caucasians were the first people created, which is unsound scholarship) and have leagued behind Governor Rick Perry (R-TX), with The Republic of Texas pushing for the state’s withdrawal from the union with the endorsement of the Governor, in a concerted effort to force god in the form of the Jesus of the New Testament (based on a single bible verse: Matthew 10:34: Μὴ νομίσητε ὅτι ἦλθον βαλεῖν εἰρήνην ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν· οὐκ ἦλθον βαλεῖν εἰρήνην ἀλλὰ μάχαιραν and the Vulgate reads: nolite arbitrari quia venerim mittere pacem in terram non veni pacem mittere sed gladium) to bring about the apocalypse and end life on the planet so that the Elect would rule for 1000 years before an imaginary, non-biblical rapture (the word appears nowhere in any holy writ except as an expression of praise: Luke 1:67 or a form of sexual passion as in Proverbs 5:19, Psalm 28:7, and so forth).

The rape of children and women and slaughter of children in front of their parents is hailed by the grotesque gaggle of gods in the Old Testament who finds comfort and joy in the carnage: “Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword.  Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes.  Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes.  For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off.  The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows.  They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children (Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT).  It is found more frenzied in Numbers 25:3-4:  “And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel. And the LORD said unto Moses, ‘Take all the heads of the people and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.

The prophets of the Old Testament match the Mephistophelean ministries of Scott Lively (Abiding Truth, a certified hate group), Billy and Franklin Graham who distort the bible in the most heinous fashion, and James Dobson whose rants reveal an intimacy with Old Testament crime: “And he brought out the people that [sic: who] were in it, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes” (1 Chronicles 20:3); in chapters 17-19 the chronicler tartly tattles tellingly that David killed 22,000 Syrians and that Abishai killed 18,000 Edomites for they did not follow nor allow the diabolic deity of the ancient Jews into their hearts, homes, or temples. 

Instead, equal to the biblical untrained, unskilled unqualified “reverends” such as Keith Ratliff, and the pseudo-educator Bob Vander Plaats, both of West Des Moines, Iowa, and the “bishop” Henry Jackson of Lanham, Maryland whose Hope Christian Church is the size of a large supermarket and is reviewed on the Southern Poverty Law Center as a seed-bed for hate that matches white supremacist groups, roar like crazed beasts for the subjection and slaughter of those they disagree with in the same manner as we read in Judges 8:7, we read: “And Gideon said, Therefore when the Lord hath delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into mine hand, then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers”  Three verses later the carnage is more articulately detailed: “Now Zebah and Zalmunna were Karkor, and their hosts with them, about fifteen thousand men, all that were left of all the hosts of the children of the east: for there fell an [sic: a] hundred and twenty thousand men that drew sword.” Only the slaughter of the innocents would appease this Huckabeean Hitlersque horned god groaning odiously for more sacrifice: “For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life” (Leviticus 17:11).  Cp. “The law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness” (Hebrews 9:22).

Rev. Ted Haggard on the “problem” of his homosexuality

Huckabee and his gaggle of goons say nothing about the rise in the number of Protestant pedophile pastors in the ranks of their clergy (Rev. Ted Haggard, Bishop Eddie Long, and a long list of other child and wife abusers) and are as corrupt as the German pope who has hidden pedophile priests in the Roman Catholic Church (read here and here)—but even here they follow their bibles belching hate that records, most discreetly, the pedophiles prophets in the ancient Jewish world: However, Elisha did save one boy–in a most unusual manner even for ancient Israel: “And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm.” (2 Kings 4:34 KJV: וַיַּעַל וַיִּשְׁכַּב עַל־הַיֶּלֶד וַיָּשֶׂם פִּיו עַל־פִּיו וְעֵינָיו עַל־עֵינָיו וְכַפָּיו עַל־[כ כַּפֹּו] [ק כַּפָּיו] וַיִּגְהַר עָלָיו וַיָּחָם בְּשַׂר הַיָּלֶד).

Scott, sanctimonious, self-righteous and Pecksniffian, is a member and devout apologist for the NRA.  He openly opposes restricting gun purchases and possession and wanted to loosen restriction on interstate gun purchases and argues that all citizens should carry loaded weapons, even despite the Newton, CT massacre (read a response here and here; watch a video here).  Mike Huckabee, James Dobson, and others proclaimed it to be their god’s punishment on the station, while others, like acerbic Ann Coulter, said it was reason that teachers be well-armed in the classroom and the kindergarteners carried concealed guns (cp. Rep. Dennis Richardson (R-OR) who wants more guns on campus; one sixth grader actually did take a gun to school to protect himself and his friends after the Sandy Hook massacre).

Jim DeMint Tea Party Favorite to lead Heritage Foundation

Jim DeMint Tea Party Favorite to lead Heritage Foundation

political novice, Scott, who had only served two years in Congress, was chosen by South Carolina’s groveling governor Nikki Haley as a payback to followers to continue the policies of hate uttered in the US Senate by Jim De Mint who left the Senate to head the Heritage Foundation to turn the one-time conservative objective think-tank into an organ for the ultra-right-wing trumpet of radical Republican politics (read here and here).  Scott is clueless of what the Constitution of the USA states or its intent.  Scott led, in 2011, an attempt to impeach Barrack Obama over the debt ceiling fight (the law itself is an infringement on the fourteenth amendment), fought (successfully) to reduce HIV/AIDS funding in his state even though it ranks in the top third of the states of reported AIDS cases (it is eighth in the nation); but, of course, Scott’s “Christianity” is limited, and Scott is in complete ignorance of Matthew 10:8; 25:36 and 44). 

Scott demanded that food stamps be revoked for entire families if any family member went on strike (read here and here). The future Senator of South Carolina is doing nothing less than advocating the plan of his “Christian” god—the pagan, pathetic,   pernicious and perfidiously execrable and evil Yahweh of ancient Habiru (Hebrews) that filters throughout the Old Testament:  

This woman said unto me, [“g]ive your son, that we may eat him today, and we will eat my son tomorrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him.” (2 Kings 6:28-29)

And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them.” (Deuteronomy 28:57)

And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall you eat.” (Leviticus 26:29)

And you shall eat the fruit of your own body,[sic: ;]  the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters.” (Deuteronomy 28:53)

And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine.” (Isaiah 49:26)

And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend.” (Jeremiah 19:9)

The hands of the pitiful women have sodden their own children: they were their meat.” (Lamentations 4:10)

I will not feed you: that that dies, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.” (Zechariah 11:9)

Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother. And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm.” (Isaiah 9:19-20)

Tim Scott of South Carolina (2012)

Tim Scott of South Carolina (2012)

Scott opposed not only the repeal of DOMA but basic human rights for more than ten percent of the American population, and wants to do away with universal health care, medicare, and Medicaid, and raising the national debt limit even though it would save thousands of dollars for each middle class family.  A strong theocrat, Scott is convinced that the Constitution “safeguards our freedom to practice and embrace religion” and denounces the wall separation state and church.  Scott is a contemporary Christian, but is no follower of the Jesus of the New Testament who forbade judging others (Matthew 7:1), since even god does not segregate people (Acts 10:34: Stephanus Textus reads (1550): Ἀνοίξας δὲ Πέτρος τὸ στόμα εἶπεν Ἐπ ἀληθείας καταλαμβάνομαι ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν προσωπολήπτης ὁ θεός, and the Latin Vulgate is aperiens autem Petrus os dixit in veritate conperi  quoniam non est personarum acceptor Deus).  What Scott has is the psychology and mental meanness of the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoevsky’s Brothers Karamazov, that reflects a strong reactive egoism that elevates his claims of being “taught with love” in the measures of conservatism and self-protection indicates a state of mental imbalance (Epley, Nicholas; Caruso, Eugene; Bazerman, Max H. (2006). “When perspective taking increases taking: Reactive egoism in social interaction”. doi: 10.1037/0022-3514.91.5.872.

South Carolina Governor Kikki Haley (2012)

The governor of South Carolina, Kikki Haley, is but a puppet of the Tea Party and a purveyor of patronizing putrefying vilification.  The USA is the poorer for Scott’s appointment for the worse will float to the top as does all scum along with the dead terrorist theology of Billy and Franklin Graham, Pat Robertson, and the dubious deistic deprivations of James Dobson, Bill Donohue (who defends pedophile priests) and New York City archbishop Timothy cardinal Dolan (who hid pedophile priests and claimed the priests were the victims).  As long as these “Christians” chain the minds of mortals, there is no hope for the USA for they have brought a blight upon a once bright promise of “liberty, equality, and the pursuit of happiness” for the brimstone brine belching bloodshed in the name of a god lusting for blood. Their plans for the USA exceed even the horrors of the unholy Inquisition that the Polish Pope, Karol Józef Wojtyła (John Paul II), revived despite being accused of murder, sodomy and heresy.  The Inquisition was run by the German cardinal Joseph Ratzinger who still oversees its operations, along with numerous other mythologies mutilating and murdering hope, happiness, and human dignity.

Bob Vander Plaats and the Rise of Iowa’s Nazis

Between 1929 and 1933 the SA (Sturmabteilung) was instrumental in Hitler’s rise to power. Led by Ernst Röhm, an ambitious professional soldier, the SA became increasingly violent in its support of the Nazi Party. When Röhm refused to curtail the violence after the Nazis came to power, Hitler ordered Röhm and his top aides to be executed. The purge, known as the “Night of the Long Knives,” (30 June 1934 to July 2) eliminated rivals, especially “activist judges” and jurist who sought to protect basic human rights–including the right of association.

When Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany, the first thing that his Nazi party did was to take control of the courts, local government, and all civic organizations except the Protestant and Catholic churches. The courts were the Nazis primary concern–seeing the courts of Germany as too liberal and too concerned with individual human and civil rights.

Nazi Judge Freisler who would not tolerate homosexuals

On March 23, 1933, the Nazi-dominated Reichstag passed a law “for the removal of distress from the people and the state.” This law, known as the Enabling Act, gave the government full dictatorial powers and, in effect, suspended basic civil and human rights for four years. When the president had signed it, Hitler had a firm “legal” basis on which to govern as he pleased. He had also destroyed the constitution through outwardly legal means. 

By mid-July 1933, the government had outlawed freedom of the press, all trade unions, and all political parties except the Nazis. The Gestapo (secret state police) hunted down the enemies and opponents of the government. People were jailed or shot on suspicion alone. By the time Hindenburg died in August 1934, Hitler ruled Germany completely. He assumed the title Fuhrer und Reichskanzler (leader and Reich chancellor). 

The People’s Court had been established by Hitler as part of the government’s war on terrorism after the terrorist firebombing of the German parliament building. Displeased with the independence of the judiciary in the trials of the suspected Reichstag terrorists, Hitler had set up the People’s Court to ensure that terrorists and traitors would receive the “proper” verdict and punishment. Judicial proceedings were conducted in secret for reasons of national security (cp. http://www.mcgill.ca/channels/announcements/item/?item_id=22295).

On July 14, 1933, Hitler pushed through “The Enabling Act” granting him supreme power, including power over the entire court system. Any court opinion, judgment, or ruling that he opposed required that those jurists who issued the opposing ruling had to step down, be impeached, and in most cases shot to death.

The Nazis proclaimed that the “profession of the attorney is not a trade but a service to the law”, requiring attorneys to raise the bar and respect the will of the Führer over the self-interest of their client (See: Matthew Lippman.  “Law, Lawyers, and Legality in the Third Reich:  The Perversion of Principle and Professionalism.”  Temple International and Comparative Law Journal  (Fall 1997):  11).  What were once innocent interactions between lawyers were now considered ethical breaches.  The threat of retribution often deterred lawyers from involvement in politically sensitive cases.  In sum, the sovereignty of the legal profession was lost as lawyers were absorbed into Nazi organizations and subjected to the supervision and stringency of the Nazi regime.  Ideological conformity was stressed as opposed to intellectual competence.  

A series of notices, soon to be called Judges’ Letters began in circulation.  Their purpose was to instruct jurists to preserve the purity of the nation.  The Letters proved to be a successful effort in influencing judicial decision-making.  How much was voluntary is highly disputed though, because jurists were aware that their decisions were subjected to surveillance and scrutiny and that these letters would be distributed to their peers.  Failure to comply with the Letters or their recommendations would surely lead to punishment.

In conjunction with regulating attorneys and jurists the Nazi party also felt the responsibility to police the judiciary.  The Ministry of Justice began to issue instructions to prosecutors concerning appropriate punishment for each case, which was then immediately relayed from the prosecutors to the judges.  The judiciary merely accepted these persuasions, and acted accordingly.  Unfortunately the initial coordination between the executive and legislative branches wasn’t fully effective in regards to controversial verdicts.  In a fit of frustration Hitler announced to the Reichstag that he would directly intervene in the judicial process (See: ibid, pp. 18, 21). 

The most infamous institutional creation was established in April 24, 1934 and named the People’s Court.  The creation of the People’s Court proved popular in evangelical communities throughout the USA, especially in Long Island, NY.

Long Island NY USA support for Nazis and Hitler

 This court was envisioned to replace the Supreme Court and the first and last resort in treason trials.  Each hearing sat five members, each appointed for five years by Hitler.  Politics rather than law, with the main goal to eliminate opposition to National Socialism, blatantly guided the court.  In 1941 the People’s Court delivered death sentences to ten percent of the defendants with the figures culminating between 1942 and 1944 when it rose to forty percent, approximately 12, 891 death sentences.  These are the courts that Bob Vander Plaats of Iowa wants established in Iowa for Iowans and anyone who opposes him.

The efficiency of the Special Courts necessitated their expansion.  In 1943, The Reich Minister of Justice observed that the Special Courts now heard virtually all important criminal cases.  Basically speaking, anyone convicted of a criminal case was sent to a court that never allowed appeal, found minimal individuals innocent and were encouraged to dole out death penalties to those found guilty.  The emergence of new courts did not stop here (for further commentary and videos see: http://researchris.blogspot.com/2008/08/why-germans-supported-hitler.html; cp. Wolfgang Schivelbusch, Three new deals : reflections on Roosevelt’s America, Mussolini’s Italy, and Hitler’s Germany, 1933-1939; translated by Jefferson Chase. New York : Metropolitan Books, 2006).

Lutheran Bishop Muller endorses the Reich

Hitler, a devout Roman Catholic, had the support not only of the Lutheran Church (one of the two official religions in twentieth-century Germany) but also of the evangelical movement. “I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so.” (see John Toland, Adolf Hitler, New York: Anchor Publishing, 1992, p. 507).

Mass grave of homosexuals murdered by Nazi-packed courts

individual rights has long been a tool of would be dictators, especially in the USA where would-be demigods such as “Pat” Robertson and Jerry Falwell would blast gay people as “pawns of Satan” would create theocratic television empires to deny basic human rights to homosexuals. But no where is this evil less disguised than in the religious rantings of a one-time teacher and Iowa coach: Bob Vander Plaats.  Vander Plaats, the head of The Family Leader, has emerged as the state’s most influential Religious Right activist despite losing the 2010 Republican primary for governor. His effort to remove the four Justices last election was backed by millions of dollars of spending from outside groups such as the American Family Association, the Family Research Council (a neo-Nazi front: http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-files/family-research-council, cp. http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/news/splc-adds-family-research-council-to-hate-groups-list) and the National Organization for Marriage (See: http://iowaindependent.com/49721/vander-plaats-raising-money-to-remove-remaining-four-justices). A former adviser recently wrote that Vander Plaats is “obsessed with the gay-marriage issue” and “so obsessed that he would rather see the Iowa judicial system destroyed, instead of pursuing a change in the law within the channels provided (a constitutional amendment)”  (Read the full opinion published by the Des Moines Register at http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20110102/OPINION01/101020319/1036/OPINION/Guest-column-Obsessed-with-gay-marriage-Vander-Plaats-has-gone-too-far?GID=0).  Vander Plaats, drawing a direct line from the speeches of Hitler, with modest modifications minced his words:

“All seven justices are guilty of overstepping the line by their votes in the Varnum decision, therefore we are asking for the remaining four justices to resign in an orderly fashion,” he said. “As long as the Iowa Supreme Court is comprised [sic: composed] of justices that abuse their authority, the credibility of our court will be compromised” (See: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/former-adviser-says-vander-plaats-obsessed-gay-marriage-issue; cp. http://www.rightwingwatch.org/category/groups/-family-leader)

Bob Vander Plaats speaking against basic human rights

Vander Plaats led the campaign to oust the three judges, with nearly $1 million in funding from out-of-state anti-gay organizations like the American Family Association, the Family Research Council and the National Organization for Marriage. After the election, he was named CEO and president of The Family Leader — an umbrella organization consisting of the Iowa Family Policy Center, the Iowa Family PAC and Marriage Matters.  He was hosted by the University of Northern Iowa at Cedar Falls and by its leading hate mongers, especially those from fundamentalist churches in Waterloo (cf. http://qctimes.com/news/state-and-regional/iowa/article_9e0bd296-0286-11e0-a727-001cc4c03286.html, cp. http://blogs.desmoinesregister.com/dmr/index.php/2010/12/23/vander-plaats-compares-iowa-justices-to-teens-who-flee-a-beer-party/ and http://www.siouxcityjournal.com/news/state-and-regional/iowa/article_f04fe563-e55b-5203-afa9-f862bb5f2955.html his words comparing the Supreme Court of Iowa to “teenagers caught at a beer

When the end came, Goebbels poisoned his 6 children, shot his wife, and then shot himself.] Goebbels was one of the “secret” supporters of Endlosung [final solution] which including murdering all homosexuals that could be found in Germany).  Vander Plaats has the endorsement of seventeen recognized organized hate groups, including the Ku Klux Klan (Charles City,
