320pm EST CNN just aired a "story" about the pastor who was beaten by border patrol and then said he wished Obama would die of brain cancer. The story consisted of the anchor "exposing" that the pastor used his church to film an advertisement for his business while claiming that a map and a chopped to bits statement somehow meant he was evading taxes and then encouraged the IRS to "look into that". this breaking news expose lasted about 5 minutes.

Is this considered real news? are you kidding me? a national media outlet with millions of dollars in resources has to slander 1 guy for a less than tasteful choice of words?

Absolutely ridiculous

and no unfortunately i do not have video as it has just happened on that guys show which apparently is a year old? but never the less it happened

Assuming this is true; it's what's come to be expected of the MSM. Attack those who disagree with you, make them criminal, make them inhuman and by association you destroy anything legitimate they have to say.

The MSM is notorious for Ad Hominem; they have perfected it. The 24-hour networks are no longer News, nor do I think they ever even claim to be news. The shows are commentary and opinion, much of which is delivered like generals presiding over their soldiers, rallying them before a great battle.

I have no doubt that they see their viewers as little more than pawns on a chessboard.

So it turns out that Contessa Brewer had good reason to see a connection between the rabidly hateful rhetoric spewed by the likes of Pastor Steven Anderson and the angry, gun-toting protesters turning out for presidential events: One of the most prominent of these, an African-American man named "Chris", is in fact a member of Pastor Anderson's congregation.
"Chris" was on Alex Jones' "Prison Planet" radio show late last week and discussed how "my pastor was beaten up" at a Border Patrol checkpoint.

Yes, that pastor is indeed Steven Anderson, who was arrested in April by the Border Patrol for being uncooperative at a patrol checkpoint. Anderson attempted to make himself something of a national martyr to the conspiracists out there by posting a video to YouTube about it that quickly went viral.

Jones took note of the Anderson connection:

Jones: Now I'm starting to get a clearer picture. You go to Pastor Anderson's church, I see.

Chris: Yeah, yes I do. Proudly. I think it's the best church in the world.

Her is a quote from the good Christian, the good Pastor, a man of God:

Let me tell you something: Barack Obama has wrought lewdness in America. America has become lewd. What does lewd mean? L-E-W-D? [Pause] Obscene. Right? Dirty. Filthy. Homosexuality. Promiscuity. All of the -- everything that's on the billboard, the TV. Sensuality. Lewdness! We don't even know what lewdness means anymore! We're just surrounded by it, inundated with it!

... And yet you're going to tell me that I'm supposed to pray for the socialist devil, murderer, infanticide, who wants to see young children and he wants to see babies killed through abortion and partial-birth abortion and all these different things -- you're gonna tell me I'm supposed to pray for God to give him a good lunch tomorrow while he's in Phoenix, Arizona.

Nope. I'm not gonna pray for his good. I'm going to pray that he dies and goes to hell. When I go to bed tonight, that's what I'm going to pray. And you say, 'Are you just saying that?' No. When I go to bed tonight, Steven L. Anderson is going to pray for Barack Obama to die and go to hell.

You want to know who the biggest hypocrite in the world is? The biggest hypocrite in the world is the person who believes in the death penalty for murderers and not for homosexuals. Hypocrite. The same God who instituted the death penalty for murderers is the same God who instituted the death penalty for rapists and for homosexuals - sodomites, queers! That's what it was instituted for, okay? That's God, he hasn't changed. Oh, God doesn't feel that way in the New Testament ... God never "felt" anything about it, he commanded it and said they should be taken out and killed.

You know why God wanted the sodomites in the Old Testament to be killed? You know why every good king of Israel, the Bible says they got rid of the sodomites in the land? You know, the good kings that came after the bad kings who had allowed the sodomites to infest their land, they had infiltrated ... King Asa got the sodomites out of the land, Jehoshaphat exterminated the sodomites that were left from the days of his father, Asa. Why? Because the sodomites are infectious, that's why. Because they're not reproducers, that goes without saying, they're recruiters.

How are they multiplying? Do you not see that they're multiplying? Are you that blind? Have you noticed that there's more than there were last year and the year before, and the year before that? How are they multiplying? They're reproducing right? No, here's a biology lesson: they're not reproducers, they're recruiters! And you know who they're after? Your children. Remember you dropped off your kids last week? That's who they're after. You drop them off as some daycare, you drop them off as some school somewhere, you don't know where they're at. I'll tell you where they're at: they're being recruited by the sodomites. They're being molested by the sodomites. I can tell you so many stories about people that I know being molested and recruited by the sodomites.

They recruit through rape. They recruit through molestation. They recruit through violation. They are infecting our society. They are spreading their disease. It's not a physical disease, it's a sin disease , it's a wicked, filthy sin disease and it's spreading on a rampage. Can't you see that it's spreading on a rampage? I mean, can you not see that? Can you not see that it's just exploding in growth? Why? Because each sodomite recruits far more than one other sodomite because his whole life is about recruiting other sodomites, his whole life is about violating and hurting people and molesting 'em.

So how many sodomites is one sodomite going to produce? A lot, and that's why it's just exploding. The only way to stop it, you say "how do we stop it?" ... You want to know why sodomites are recruiting? Because they have no natural predators.

unfortunately this has nothing to do with this topic ... i think its funny that your making my point more valid ... MSM just slandering him because he says things they dont like (not saying what he says is right) , as well why wouldnt the 2 be in a photo together ... in your article doesnt it say that hes chris's pastor?

its slander and scare tactics ... "Didnt want to shut up huh? well this is what you get."

and dont give me he deserves it crap ... 1 private citizen vs a multi million dollar media machine? uh huh

and for clarification the entire story was about this supposed tax fraud

Are you a follower of this guy or what. Are your dreams crashing down on you of having a Messiah that the flock will follow is seen as a nut job that he is. It doesn't take MSM to show he is a nut job he puts this stuff up on his own web site like hes proud of being crazy.

It was an accusation of tax fraud saying that he "ran his business out of his church" and said that "The IRS should take a look into this"

Exactly, what did Rick Sanchez say that was slanderous, i.e. untrue???

And perhaps you've seen these threads here on ATS:

Border patrol alleged to have beat up and tazed pastor, smashed his car, on US soil, because he insisted on 4th Amendment rights

God Commands You To Kill Gays

Pastor wants Obama dead

WOW, the MSM finally caught up to us lowly ATSer's!!! NEXT!

Like i said ... the guy is yes a scumbag ... but that doesnt excuse a media outlet from accusing him of tax fraud... and im not saying they hinted at it ... or batted around the issue they said, without any real proof mind you , that he slings goods out of his church and that hes frauding the IRS

yeah rick sanchez thats the guy i wish i had the video of it ... and i dont see the particular video though i do see alot about the pastor ... it aired today at 320pm it will probably repeat at 10 oclock or something

No, they only repeat the prime time shows. Let me check if I can find it...

Edit: Nothing on today's show. Here's what I did find:

From Sanchez' Blog on August 28, 2009
Obama-hating PASTOR; death threats against Obama

And from September 1, 2009
Is Secret Service investigating Obama-hating pastor?

Rick's been following this guy for over a week now. Are you sure he didn't mention a source or reason?

yeah i saw those on his website but no vid so far of todays broadcast
and yeah it was only a 5 minute segment where he just accused the guy of frauding the IRS and his proof was a map in the background of a commercial the guy did matching a map in the church... and the pastor apparently admitted that he had filmed some of his commercials there

Well, I dunno about tax fraud, but this guy is definitely a fraud! This Church of his, which is in a strip mall, btw, is just a platform for him in his quest to be famous. I mean c'mon, he is doing and saying everything he can to get attention! Definitely a Grade A Douchebag!

Then... what's the slander? It sounds like the guy WAS working out of his church, using it as a tax shelter. To be slander, it has to be untrue.

you can film a commercial in the streets doesnt mean you claimed your business address was 52nd and Pine for the IRS

I'm glad they are calling him out.

He wanted some publicity, now he is getting it. Hope he enjoys the ride.

Exactly.. you took the words right out of my mouth BH!

Looking for publicity is kind of like going bear hunting with a stick. In both cases you can find what you are looking for, but you find out very quickly that you are not the one calling the shots.

When I first looked at the video of the incident between this guy and the boarder patrol, it was clear that he was playing to the camera (that's my professional opinion by the way). The extreme statements, the website, the publicity seeking plays with the assault rifle incident -- this guy is not someone who just got picked on by the media and dragged into the spotlight, he courted the attention and media coverage.

Be careful what you wish for... you just might get it.
