KENTUCKY: Infamous White Supremacist Michael Peroutka Speaks At Kim Davis Rally [VIDEO]

With the red-caped Catholic loons at his side, yesterday notorious white supremacist Michael Peroutka spoke at the rally outside the jail holding Kim Davis. Peroutka is a former leader of the League Of The South, which recently “celebrated” the 150th anniversary of the assassination of “tyrant” Abraham Lincoln.

The SPLC calls Peroutka “an avid Southern secessionist and radical Christian Reconstructionist.” According to Wikipedia, Christian Reconstructionists call for overthrowing the US government and replacing it with a “biblical theocracy.” The new Christian theocracy would then reinstate Mosaic penal laws under which “the list of crimes which carried a death sentence would include homosexuality, adultery [KIM DAVIS!], incest, lying about one’s virginity, bestiality, witchcraft, idolatry or apostasy, public blasphemy, false prophesying, kidnapping, rape, and bearing false witness in a capital case.”

In 2004 Peroutka ran for president on the Constitution Party ticket, placing fifth nationally with 150,000 votes. In 2012 the Montgomery Advertiser revealed that Peroutka provided almost of all the funds for Roy Moore’s successful campaign to return to the Alabama Supreme Court.  Last year Peroutka changed his party affiliation to Republican and was elected to the county commission in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Also last year he and his family donated a collection of dinosaur fossils to Kentucky’s Creation museum.

 And here he is raving about Kim Davis.

            When I took some maple syrup as a guest gift to the hosts in Upstate New York, I was quickly informed that ‘We make LOTS of maple syrup here.” I’ve avoided mentioning it as a Canada-US difference since then.

          • Jarle Tveitan

            I’m sure we’ll have plenty of room (and bacon) for anyone trying to escape the christian theocracy 😀

        • Ben in Oakland

          I’m in Norway right now. Germans also have bacon wrapped hotdogs, my Norwegian friend, who is actually German, says that in Norway there are hot dogs stuffed with cheese she thinks that is going too far

      Every time I think we’ve seen all the evil there is to see in America, something like this comes up. I know that I live in a relatively safe little bubble in the Pacific NW, but these people seriously scare the fuck out of me.

      • AJD

        Yeah it’s tempting to write them off as a bunch of loons, but every evil movement that has taken over even the biggest countries started out small and was dismissed by everyone else, the Nazis being a good example. All it would take would be an economic catastrophe in this country to make people less tolerant and more willing to listen to bigoted crackpots.

        • Friday

          Probably part of why the GOP has been obstructing economic recovery, never mind actual improvements. They can’t run on scapegoating people over persecution complexes if everyone’s… Doing OK and all. Bigotry always increases in tough/frustrating economic times, that’s just how that goes.

        • bambinoitaliano

          That’s how home grown terrorism started. Misguided perception of the world. Ben Carson is not that far off when he suggest droning Americans.

      • BlueberriesForMe

        It’s easy to get the impression that a lot of America is like that. OTOH, I’m guessing most people are too busy trying to keep up with their lives then paying attention to this stuff. But, I guess we’ll see, yet again, in the coming year.

    • Merv99

      It all goes back to the decades just before the Civil War. At the founding of the country, there was widespread agreement in the North and South that slavery was an obsolescent relic of the past that would soon die out naturally, so there was no reason to force the issue. Unfortunately, it wasn’t long afterwards that cotton plantation agriculture became insanely profitable, and slavery and racism were suddenly transformed in Southern white culture from a peculiar institution to a positive good. At that point, civil war became inevitable. Compounding the problem, after the Civil War, the North lost its nerve and didn’t eradicate the vestiges of slave culture from the South. White Southerners needed to be dealt with ruthlessly. The leaders should have been executed or imprisoned for life, and policies of the Radical Republicans continued to their conclusion. Instead, we got 100 more years of institutional racism.

    “the list of crimes which carried a death sentence would include homosexuality, adultery [KIM DAVIS!], incest, lying about one’s virginity, bestiality, witchcraft, idolatry or apostasy, public blasphemy, false prophesying, kidnapping, rape, and bearing false witness in a capital case.”

    False prophesying would get Pat Robertson in trouble pretty much every week. Kim Davis is, as Joe notes, the poster child for adultery, but there are plenty of others. Idolatry or apostasy can be interpreted to mean quite a bit of what happens in a Catholic church, or any sect you don’t like.* As for rape, well, there’s Duggar, Duggar, Duggar. And if you lie about any of these, you’re on the list too!

    These folks should be careful what they wish for.
    ——-
    * When I was a kid living with my grandma, there was a religious fight between splinter Baptist churches about whether music was allowed in a service. One pastor held that playing music was idolatrous. That would be the death penalty for the Christian musicians. This is just one reason why in an Ohio village with 700 voters, there were thirteen Baptist churches.

    • JT

      The internecine religious executions alone would be quite a spectacle.

      At one point in this same village it became very fashionable to erect the largest possible set of three crosses you could possibly manage in your front yard.

      You weren’t in the game unless you had at least telephone poles. Didn’t matter if your house had a postage stamp lot, in fact it was good. If you managed to have crosses larger than your house, it was double-plus points. Some people installed floodlights.

      And people thought of this as piety. I thought it was hideous. Under these rules, it would be a capital offense.

      Hmmmm. Maybe there is some merit to this proposal, after all.

      Every cult has schisms – Metro Vancouver Sikhs almost went to war over tables and chairs! NYT.

      “Deeply orthodox members of the temple reportedly lashed angrily at other
      members with knives, clubs and ceremonial swords, slicing through one
      man’s ear, dislocating an executive committee member’s arm, smashing a
      teen-age girl over the head and stabbing a man in the side — all
      because of a dispute over whether the Sikh Code of Conduct requires
      members to sit on floor mats or allows them to use chairs.”

      • Bad Tom

        Some cults are most schismatic than others. Fighting over whether you can sit in a chair is fairly extreme.

        As far as I can recall, the Baptists never had any actual riots. Just bad mouthing, back stabbing, and congregation splitting.

        • Bertlay

          I was working at an office where the secretary came in upset on a Monday because her church had just split over a new interpretation of the Bible on what the proper pitch of the church roof should be.

    • Larry in Oklahoma

      I can relate to that. Church of Christ congregations (at least, in Oklahoma) do not believe in any kind of musical accompaniment, such as piano, guitar, or organ. The churches I attended (different denominations) were okay with the piano and MAYBE an acoustic guitar but not drums or a band.

    • RoFaWh

      Historical note: The Second Temple in Jerusalem is believed by some scholars to have had a pipe organ, in Latin hydraulicus. Another tradition is that Orthodox services are modeled on the Temple rituals; this conflicts with the previous statement in that Orthodox churches (Russian, Greek, Georgian, etc) have never had organs.

  • Steven Leahy

        Yeah but it’s their christofascist shariah law. They just want to be the ones in charge so that they can decide who lives and dies. And who pays them “tributes” to keep themselves alive. And who gets to carry their seed (it’s okay if it’s them).

        I bet these guys don’t use Viagra. All they have to do is decry something they don’t like and insta-hate-boner.

        Unfortunately, the relationship between India and Pakistan has been incredibly rough with it devolving into a rivalry. After all, the new nation would immediately try to get nukes just to prove itself our equal.

        That said, I am rather tired of our country being held back by militaristic theocrats whose end goal is global doom and who keep insisting they could create a Utopia just by praying. I’d like to see them have to PROVE it but on their own turf.

  • Clive Johnson

    Right underneath the surface, the true face of the religious right emerges in all its sordidness, bigotry, extremism, ignorance and incomprehensible stupidity.

    There are no principles being defended in Kentucky. What’s being defended is an instinctive way of life, inherited reflexes never processed through the rational mind. Look here and you’ll see assembled a remarkable display of the most retrograde impulses, the history the intelligent part of the population wishes to bury, but which forms the substance of right-wing opposition.

    Unable to transcend themselves and their inherited prejudices, they cling fearfully to the familiar and the signs of sameness. Unable to comprehend the injustices inherent in their view of different others, incapable of acknowledging their role in traditional oppressions, they exist in a state of blithe degradation of self.

    Resistant to new information, incurious, dead to the riches of discovery all around, but instead threatened by it, they do the only thing they know how to do–yell with a louder voice their familiar slogans, their trigger memes and their inarticulate ideology of Christian whiteness.

    Unable to treat their fellow humans as lesser beings under the law, they twist this, in their endless ignorance and self-blindness and unreason, into a false narrative of their own oppression.

    This is the worst of America.

        • BlueberriesForMe

          There will always be some other “group” to hate and they will vow to “destroy”. The KKK doesn’t have a lock on that but they’ve got all the attributes necessary to compete in the “hate Olympics”.

    • rabbit_ears

      They’re just angry because the clergy’s robes are WAY MORE FABULOUS! Colors, gold, scepters.. Wine.

  • Well, technically Kim isn’t an adulteress, at least not in her own conscience. True, Jesus does consider her an adulteress, but Kim is following her own conscience which tells her that all of her previous marriages were invalid in the eyes of the Lord because they took place before her conversion to Christianity which wiped her slate clean. And as we know, Kim’s fourth marriage took place in 2009, two years before her conversion. Now, Jesus was very clear that you can’t divorce and remarry. And he wasn’t speaking of just Christian marriages, because of course none of the marriages in Jesus’s time were Christian marriages. All that came later. But the point is that Kim truly believes in her heart that her previous marriages were not marriages in the eyes of the Lord. So her conscience is clear that she’s not an adulteress. But since that means her current marriage isn’t a marriage in the eyes of the Lord either, she’s just an unmarried slut living in sin with a deeply religious redneck.

    • zhera

      Thing is, she was a baptist before her conversion. So she’s always been a ‘christian’ and she’s always been a hypocrite.

      • So she thinks she’s an unmarried slut, but her husband thinks she’s an adulteress. Which raises an interesting point. He’s her second husband as well as her fourth. So every time she sleeps with him, she’s cheating on him.

    • lymis

      I think that the getting pregnant by your (eventually) third husband while married to your first husband, giving birth out of wedlock entirely, and convincing someone else to be her second (and then fourth) husband to adopt the kids and help raise them to be God-fearing dognappers counts as adultery in just about anyone’s books.

      I know it counts as adultery in the Baptist church, which she was a baptized and professed member of at the time.

      • So when she sleeps with her fourth husband, she’s cheating on three men at the same time, including him.

        • stuckinthewoods

    I hope Davis spends the rest of her life in jail – with or without her KKK supporters.

    Gays have been bashed, arrested, imprisoned, tortured, and murdered by christianists for centuries. You don’t need reminding of the thousands of individuals and groups who have suffered from their atrocities – Alan Turing and 1930’s German gays come to my mind. How many of those hate-filled christianists have paid any price? Davis’ imprisonment doesn’t begin to even the balance but it’s a start. Her kind are responsible for the death of millions.

      ” 2287 Anyone who uses the power at his disposal in such a way that it leads others to do wrong becomes guilty of scandal and responsible for the evil that he has directly or indirectly encouraged. “Temptations to sin are sure to come; but woe to him by whom they come!”89 ”

    A lot of us have been saying that this bizarre theater of the absurd is all about ginning up financial support for christian bullshit. But, for the christianist goon squad in this above example, it’s all about hating fags and, frankly, America, too.

      Just more proof that only white straight males should have a right to define and run the USA. I feel so warm and comfy. Are they selling coffee mugs with this asswipe’s face on them. I want a dozen!

    On behalf of the Post-Christian movement, I want to thank Michael Peroutka for demonstrating how little difference there is in the beliefs that drive the ambitions of extremist Christians and extremist Muslims. This will be helpful to fence-sitters trying to decide whether to leave Christianity.

      Just wait until the new schism, and holy wars. That will be fun.

      most americans don’t realize how far along western civilization is in its transition into its post-christian phase.

      emancipation of women, artificial birth control, pre-marital sex and cohabitation, no-fault divorce, decriminalization of homosexuality, same-sex marriage. all were fought against tooth and nail by the mainstream churches and repudiate traditional christian ideas of morality.

      and the stats show an accelerating decline in christianity throughout the industrialized west.

      if more americans visited western and northern europe they would be astonished by the marginalization of christianity there–and how empty the churches are.

    With such a magnificent display of density I’m surprised photography was able to capture this. Usually when a lot of dense matter coalesces into one place it bends light. Eventually there should be an even horizon around a newly formed black hole. This indeed could be the end of the world.

  • Larry in Oklahoma

    Michael Peroutka’s logic is so full of holes. According to him, it would be left up to the state government to either punish or pardon her. Why did she or her attorneys never appeal this to the state level? They knew then that it was beyond being a state level. There’s no logic in “show me the law” because a ruling IS the law. He can get the small in number OLD WHITE crowd riled up but it’s not gonna change things. His homophobia and hatred is plain to see (and in few people there) but the law still stands and she stays in jail.

      Or, as Kim herself evidently put it, Rose Parks.

    • DumbHairyApe

      I read an interesting line by someone who said that Kim Davis is more like the Bus Driver for Rosa Parks who refused to drive the bus because there was a black woman on it named Rosa Parks. And, not only did she NOT drive the bus, she threw away the keys so no one else could drive the bus.

    • Max_1

      Rosa Parks went to jail because she stood against supressed Rights…
      … Kim Davis is in jail because she suppressed other people’s Rights.

      • DutchBoy74

        It hurts my head thinking about their logic.
        It’s like supporting the bully when the bully finally gets stood up.
        The pain that she has caused to those couples and justice to everyone else.

        She wants to work in a church, but not for church salary.

    These goddamn idiots are doing more harm than good for their so-called ’cause’. Keep it up. A lot of fence sitters came down to our side during the equality battle. This proves they made the right choice and pushes some of the remaining fence sitters to our side.

  • I must have missed the part when they said Kim Davis doesn’t have any hatred for gay people.

  • Mark

    Those boys are just so precious in their red faux pashimina’s…..

  • I just realized something. Kim’s living with husband #2/4. So every time she sleeps with him, she’s cheating on him! So Jesus sent her to jail just in time!

    She says there is no law requiring her to marry gays. She is not marring the gays, just distributing the license so they can get married. That is her job. Her job is NOT to interrupt the law. It is not Gods job either. That is SCOTUS job, which it did do.

      There’s a Goebbels wannabe in that organization, so the image they present to the world is a farrago of various symbols and portents that said wannabe thinks look butch. They don’t.

  • Interesting that the majority of crimes for which the death penalty is invoked are sexual. And the crime of murder doesn’t seem to be listed for which the punishment is death. If he believes that adulterers should be killed, does he want Kim freed from jail to kill her?

    The folks in his town who elected him are fools, they gave him the cachet of legitimacy. This is one scary fella.

      In point of fact, the Constitution stipulates that the legal system would be based on English common law, under which most law is judge-made, via the use of precedents.

      When you sue your neighbor for watering your lilies with colored inks, you do it as a tort and without reference to any statute.

    There’s one glaring problem with this guy’s argument.

    The Supreme Court didn’t make ANY law. They merely struck down an unconstitutional provision of existing marriage law. The provision that the law only applies to those couples that comprise one man and one woman. The entirety of marriage law remains exactly the same. Only the restriction on which citizens are entitled to avail themselves of those existing laws has been struck down as unconstitutional. And any references to gender are to be construed as being gender neutral.

    When the Supreme Court struck down laws against interracial marriage, the States didn’t need to write new laws (dragging their feet along the way) to accommodate interracial couples. Simply the provisions which forbid couples of differing races from availing themselves of those marriage laws were null and void. That’s it.

  • happiernow

    This guy is a lawyer? How the hell did he graduate from law school when he is illiterate in constitutional law? He must have squeaked by with a D in the class. The law she has violated is the Constitution (1st and 14th Amendments to be exact). What an utterly stupid argument this guy is making. Court decisions have the force of law you moron!

    Kim Davis and her merry band of supporters live in an imaginary country where laws don’t apply to them and everything is ordered in compliance with their particular prejudices. And Christian Reconstructionism sure sounds like Huckabee, with his calls to re-write the Constitution to conform to scripture.

    Michael Peroutka is NOT a white supremacist, nor is he a racist. You can’t find anyone who actually knows Peroutka who would say anything like this about him. Just because ignorant people keep repeating a lie doesn’t make it true.

      Are you afraid someone might not see your post if you don’t say it twice? Just go away.

      Go troll somewhere else. The SPLC uses documented evidence to make their judgements. Your opinion is meaningless.

      • Sarah Shelton Henry

        My “opinion” is based on knowledge of the man. That the SPLC says false things about him is evidence that they do not use any evidence let alone “documented evidence”. Not only does your opinion is meaningless, it’s based in vincible ignorance.

        • McSwagg

          SPLC is ‘false’ simply because you say so? He was a member of the League of the South, which is a racist white supremacist organization. His own words condemn him as a racist bigot. I don’t have to rely on my opinion on this guy. His own words condemn him.

          • Sarah Shelton Henry

            What words?
            SPLC is false because the say things that are contrary to the truth. If you actually knew Peroutka, you would know that when the SPLC labels him as a racist, they are making a false statement.

          • McSwagg

            Take your lies elsewhere. No one here is buying them. You are the perfect example of the “loving christain”. You are all like. Hatred, judgement, bigotry, lying, all while giving yourself a free pass to do and say the most horrendous things because you are “forgiven”. You are so blind to it, you actually think you are above everyone else. Sticking you fingers in your ears regarding your “dear friend” changes nothing. Begone. You have no power here witch.

          • Sarah Shelton Henry

            I am telling no lies. You are not interested in facts. You accuse him using “his own words” but when challenged to give those words, you resort to an ad hominem argument. You are the one guilty of hatred, judgment, bigotry, lying, and saying horrendous things. Apparently, the truth has no power here.

          • McSwagg

            Your Disqus account is only days old and all of your comments are about calling people liars when they link to information that is freely available on the internet regarding your Racist White Supremacist “Friend”. It is clear that you are nothing more than a troll trying to whitewash the record of your “friend”. Or is it YOUR record? You are nothing more than a troll.

            If you are too incompetent or too lazy to do basic research, don’t blame that on others when they disagree with you.
