Metaxas: If you are an evangelical who did not vote for Trump “you don’t have a lot going on upstairs”
I have never heard of this guy Doug Giles, but he apparently hosts a podcast called “Warriors and Wildmen.” He also writes books. Here are a few of his titles:
Pussification: The Effeminization of the American Male (White Feather Press)
Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls (White Feather Press)
Rise, Kill, and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation (Liberty Alliance Press)
Raising Boys Feminists Will Hate (White Feather Press)
The Bulldog Attitude: Get It Or Get Left Behind (Self-published)
A Time to Clash: Papers from a Provocative Pastor (Townhall Press)
As you can see from the above video, Giles is a “tough guy.” He will no doubt kick your ass in the name of Jesus.
In this video, Metaxas discusses Giles’s recent book, Would Jesus Vote for Trump? Of course the answer to the question in the title of his book is “DAMN YES!”
Surprise! It’s Kind of Standard for Sexual-Assault Accusers to Face Scrutiny!
I can’t believe I even have to explain this this, but posing as a sexual-assault victim is a despicable thing to do. It hurts actual victims by making the public even less likely to believe their stories, while many are already too afraid to come forward because they’re worried they’ll be written off as liars. I know the president of Project Veritas, James O’Keefe; he’s always been kind to me, and yet I still have to say that I’m absolutely horrified by these actions.
.. (Because a 14-year-old from a broken home definitely had the resources to take on a district attorney in a he-said-she-said legal battle!)
.. As a I previously wrote in a column for National Review, the Washington Post’s reporting about Roy Moore was nothing like that Rolling Stone campus sexual-assault story that turned out to be false. Rolling Stone relied on only one, single unidentifiable source, while the WaPo had four on-the-record victims — and their stories were backed up by more than 30 corroborating sources.
.. The worst part of all of this, though, is that it doesn’t even matter: The fact that Project Veritas’s sting backfired, and wound up being an additional argument for the victims, will be completely lost on anyone who needs to understand it. O’Keefe himself knows this; he actually sent out a fundraising email after the news of his botched sting broke (insisting that “we already got our story”), and I’m sure he’ll get donations from it.
James O’Keefe tweeted about his ‘confrontation’ with a Post reporter. Here’s what really happened.
Shortly after the investigation was published, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe tweeted a video of what he called his “confrontation” with one of the authors of The Post investigation, Aaron C. Davis. The video was heavily edited, a tactic for which Project Veritas has drawn criticism.
.. Project Veritas’s edited version leaves out most of The Post’s questions about Phillips and focuses on Davis’s choice not to comment on Project Veritas’s own project
.. Is this a sort of anticipatory behavior ahead of what we’re about to do?”
