Because...hey! Why not? Or so says THIS guy and THIS guy. And if you can't believe a 'Hitler was gay' loon and an End Times evangelist, who can you believe?

Wiles is also the author of a 1998 book, Judgment Day 2000 – How the Coming Computer Crash Will Radically Change Your Life (unavailable anywhere), in which he predicted: (in addition to the worldwide computer crash) the invasion of the US by Russian Spetznatz commandos,  solar tornadoes (nope, I don't know either), meteor storms, mandatory human-embedded microchips, Russian nuke attack, a health care crisis and financial collapse. According to an old God-bothering website:

Wiles, founder and president of the trade organization Christian Business Association, is convinced the Y2K problem is the direct result of God's wrath. A resident of Dallas, Texas, he recently visited Westmoreland County, speaking to pastors organizations and the media. "This is not Armageddon," he said. "It's not Jesus Christ returning on that day. But America is going to go through a long, difficult period. This will be chastisement for turning our backs on God."
Evidently, 15 years of being wrong about absolutely everything has taught Wiles nothing because more recently:
The radio host and preacher expanded on earlier statements that President Obama is “a devil from Hell” and North Korea’s hostility toward the United States is because of gay marriage. Wiles believes that God is removing his protection from the United States and will destroy us unless we become a Christian nation. Asked if only Christians should live here, Wiles answered, “I wish.”  We are in danger of “living under the tyranny of the Islamic sword,” warns Wiles.
Now, according to the still spittle-flecked Wiles:
President Obama may intentionally spread Ebola using an ineffective vaccine, which would lead to Americans being forced into FEMA camps.

Wiles was speaking with evangelist Augusto Perez about how the spread of Ebola in West Africa has implications for the End Times. The two speculated that the American government may exploit the outbreak in order to grow the size of government and require people receive a vaccine.

“Obama would claim executive powers to mandate that every human being in the United States be vaccinated,” Wiles said. “They could use the panic to stampede hundreds of millions of people in this country to be vaccinated, in fact billions worldwide, they could stampede the world to receive to a vaccine against a deadly virus and nobody knows what is in the vaccine.”

Perez said the vaccine would not work due to unhealthy eating habits and chemtrails, spreading Ebola further and empowering the government to become oppressive and force people into FEMA camps.

Y'know, for an Evil Muslin Tyrant, Obama sure seems to move slowly when it comes to implementing his dastardly plans. You need to shift it up a gear, Mr. President: those FEMA camps aren't going to fill themselves, y'know.

The socialist libtard fucksticks here at Daily Kos are with you, Mr. President. Let's do this thing!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  He confuses me. (7+ / 0-)

    His utter lack of logic or even thought are.. Well. Honestly in Republican circles the word they use is probably "impressive". But I'd say worrying. Does he think that, even if Obama did something stupid like this (which he won't. For fucks sake it requires a zero IQ to think he would) that doctors would go along with it? Medical associations? You don't just get to, as president, throw a secret fucking serum on a table and say "yeah put that in everyone". It has to be researched first. But I doubt this guy knows that. Wiles probably thinks Obama hand-picks the vaccines the doctors keep saying he should probably get so he doesn't get various awful things. Because let's face it. The guy's probably an anti-vaxxer ontop of all of that.

        "America has a black president? THE END TIMES ARE COMING!" There've been a lot of people like him, especially since Obama became president, and they've all been pathetic, stupid, or con-men trying to make a quick buck(or any combination of the 3). That trend will continue into the foreseeable future.

  •  I might be able to explain solar tornadoes (10+ / 0-)

    Here is my guess on what that is:

    There is solar wind. A blast of solar wind can cause havoc on communications here. Now, go batshit and re-think it: winds become tornadoes (with or without sunsharks). And if a regular wind can cause power outages, what might a sun-nado do! Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    And, thanks, Obama!

    looking back over the past 15 years or so, this wouldn't seem too far off the beaten path:

    "This is not Armageddon," he said. "It's not Jesus Christ returning on that day. But America is going to go through a long, difficult period. This will be chastisement for turning our backs on God."
    That's not a long walk.  In fact, edit out the last sentence, and it's an almost a prophetic vision of the first decade of this century, regardless of the source.

      ...it's impossible to name a decade that hasn't been difficult ( the 'long' is redundant: a decade is a decade). The Spetznaz invasion? Nuke attacks? embedded microchips? Solar tornadoes? Not so much...or did I miss the news?

      I suppose you might argue that the 50s were all good, but history doesn't bear that out: Cold War, Korea, Hungary, Jim Crow, McCarthy etc etc.

      Nope...every decade has been 'difficult'. It's a non-prophecy.

      •  what we need is a public website that... (0+ / 0-)

        ... systematically exposes bullshit pundits, prophets, and the like, and rates them on a scale based on how lousy their predictions are.

        Not the usual skeptic websites, that are only organized by topic, but something that defaults to an alphabetical listing by person, and the user can click to show by topic or by rating (ascending or descending), and can also search by name or topic.

        Then we can go after them and seek to destroy the worst of the worst:

        a)  For those who can be reached by email, ask them questions such as "should I sell all my stock?" and then sue them for fraudulent investment counseling.

        b)  For those who are in the major media, conduct a "Flush Rush" style campaign to have them thrown the hell out of their cushy overpaid jobs.

        IMHO the goal should be to put these people out of business and out of the spotlight.

        There were some rough patches and the usual assortment of natural disasters and tin pot dictator genocides in third world countries, but nothing on the level of self inflicted wounds we saw in 2000 - 2010 on almost every issue of major importance.  War, social upheaval, and financial collapse on an unprecedented scale were just the beginning.

        Yeah, the first decade of this century was about as bad as it gets, and laid the foundation for the difficulties we're experiencing today.

    •  He's actually went on record (0+ / 0-)

      in 2009 and said, "I’m not a germ theory denier."

      However in the past according to RationalWiki :

      ...his views regarding vaccines are, at best, questionable. Maher has gone on record as a germ theory denialist, claiming that Pasteur recanted germ theory on his deathbed. Some of his views on this matter constitute criticism of vaccination, he is not against all vaccines but believes that being vaccinated for any and all illnesses represents a slippery slope and could damage our natural immune system. In fact, on at least one occasion his anti-vaccine stances were tracked back to whale.to.
      After his 2009 statement RationalWiki still says,
      One can conclude that although Bill Maher may claim not to be a germ theory denier and may have some legitimate concerns about the corporate corruption in the pharmaceutical industry, his views on medicine are in contrast with mainstream medicine and his perspective on vaccines may be harmful.

      He's kooky on a lot of issues.
