On March 15, 2014, the avid conspiracy theory peddler, American Taliban spokesman and king of the crazies at WorldNetDaily Joseph Farah was the guest on "Understanding the Times with Jan Markell" where he discussed "the possible loss of press freedom in America which could trickle down to Christian radio and TV [because this] is what happens when a President appoints himself as king."
Farah has a well-established pattern of trying to depict the very existence of opinions contrary to his own as being unconstitutional or a threat to democracy as we know it. So it was hardly any surprise when Farah and Markell both began declaring that the United States is well on its way to becoming the next Nazi Germany.
Center stage this time is another conspiracy theory that the FCC was planning to send researchers to grill reporters and station owners about how they decide which stories to run.
The story is, like everything else Starnes prints, a big fat lie, but like all stories born from the rectums of theocracy advocates, the American Taliban continues to push it as fact anyway.
Farah asserted that the Founding Fathers knew that America would only succeed so long as the citizens were both moral and informed. However, thanks to the government, media, and education, Farah claims that Americans today have become secularized, demoralized, and uninformed, which has put this nation in danger (which is A.T.-speak for "something other than militant Christians").
"After the Holocaust, everybody said 'never again'," said Farah. "But it will happen again when the same conditions are repeated and that's exactly what we see today."
"That's very true," Markell agree. "This happened in Nazi Germany, so this really troubles me."
What Farah clearly hopes to gloss over, of course, is the fact that the very policies he has advocated for more closely resemble Nazism that even the things he pulls out of his ass about his opposition.
The American Taliban's war against reality remains as futile as ever.
