Uh, I just watched my appearance on O’Reilly. My segment was edited slightly. Some things they left out were unimportant, but someone at Fox News edited my last thought and it slightly twisted the meaning.
Wrapping up my segment, I said, “I’m passionate about this (politics) because I’m gonna die soon, but my kids will be here and I don’t want them to grow up in a Communist country, that kills or persecutes Christians, because I taught them to believe in Jesus Christ.” Something like that. Fox News edited out the reference to my children so it sounded like I was saying I thought I would be killed by the communists in our government. This exaggerated my thought, making me sound paranoid or goofy.
If you carefully listen and watch the video, you can clearly see where they edited.
While this could very well happen in the near future in America, the persecution of Christians, as Dennis Miller validated, (first a government ridicules a people group, in the media, movies, and culture, like Hitler did with the Jews, then they persecute…this is well documented in the history of communist countries…and then they kill them, get rid of the dissenters); I was projecting the possible future of America, not being “cheeky” for show business purposes as Dennis Miller suggested in his segment after mine.
I’ve gotta lose the bow. People don’t take me seriously.
The bow was just to lighten up the seriousness of it all. Doe!
Christians are being ridiculed in the media, movies, the culture and even by the government. Hobby Lobby for example, is fighting the government to retain their first amendment rights, as Obamacare tries to enforce abortion mandates. Mr. Cathy, the CEO of Chick-fil-A has been attacked simply for standing up for the Biblical definition of marriage. Pastors are starting to be harassed if they preach the Bible’s viewpoint of homosexuality. Soon “hate speech” laws will try to legislate preachers into silence or will prosecute them. Shariah Law is trumping the Constitution in some instances, like this Manchester, TN meeting where State Attorney Bill Killian warned Tea Party members not to “criticize Islam” on the Internet…or else… It was unclear what the punishment would be since we are supposed to have Freedom of Speech, but he threatened federal prosecution.
Fox News also edited out my references to Aaron Klein, Trevor Loudon, and D’nesh D’souza as authors/books that prove Obama is a communist. And, I think I also mentioned that “progressive” and “collectivist” are the new terms for “communist.”
I really appreciate Bill O’Reilly having me on and letting me speak my mind, and plug my book. Freedom of Speech is a wonderful thing, and Fox News seems to be our only television outlet. CNN won’t have me on! Neither will The View or The Talk!
A debate with Roseanne Barr would be verrry interesting!
