Erik Rush: Government Officials Should Be 'Hanging From D.C. Like Fruit'

WorldNetDaily’s Erik Rush has been hankering for an anti-Obama revolution for quite some time and on his radio show last week said that officials serving in the Obama administration and Congress should be “hanging from D.C. like fruit.”

Rush was talking to Jim Garrow, the right-wing hoaxer who told Rush that he survived an assassination attempt that was “payback” from President Obama. The two once again insisted that elected officials like Obama have merited the death penalty for their treasonous crimes.

“When the legacy that these people have in reality is shown to the public, it is a wonder that they’re not going to be stoned to death or hung from gallows,” Garrow said.

Garrow: There’s payback and there’s payback to people that are readily gotten to and in this case I think I’m one of the people that has just been paid back, or the attempt was made to pay me back. What I’ve done that would be considered wrong by Mr. Obama is I’ve spoken truth on a number of issues where it was important that the American public understand how they’ve been hoodwinked, how they’ve been lied to, how they’re safety has been compromised, how national security has been compromised and how Obama himself has been a traitor and been involved in treason against the Republic, for which you know the penalty is death.

Rush: Yes, yeah we know that. Yet the left has had a lot of fun with that of course because they interpret that as our advocacy thereof but they twist things anyway so…

Garrow: All we’re advocating is the rule of law.

Rush: Yeah.



Garrow: When the legacy that these people have in reality is shown to the public, it is a wonder that they’re not going to be stoned to death or hung from gallows when it really is shown that self-interest was their interest, not the promise they made to the people.

Rush: I’ve said before that if you had the founders or people who were of the mindset of the founders in power right now overnight that Congressmen, government officials and appointees would be hanging from D.C. like fruit.

Porter: 'The Tide Has Turned Against The Homosexual Agenda'

Janet Porter believes that God is behind the uproar surrounding Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, who was temporarily suspended after making homophobic and racist comments in an interview with GQ.

Porter told the conservative outlet CNSNews on Friday that the controversy was part of God’s plan to fight gay rights. She called Robertson’s reinstatement a “turning point,” adding that “the tide has turned against the homosexual agenda.”

“God uses the unlikely to confound the wise,” she continued. “I love how God can use somebody – it doesn’t matter what area they are in.”

Indeed, it is pretty sad that Porter has to resort to talking about the plight of a reality TV show star to avoid actual polling data on gay rights.

Thanks to Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, Bible-believing Christians “ended 2013 on a victory,” says Janet Porter, president of Ohio-based Faith2Action (f2a).

“This is the turning point, thanks to the courage of Phil Robertson,” Porter told CNSNews.com. “The tide has turned against the homosexual agenda, and the message is that the only way to keep our freedom is to use it.”



“What I saw happen for the first time in this debate is that Phil Roberston [sic] asserted his freedom and America stood with him. This was the biggest breath of fresh air since Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” she added, calling Robertson’s reinstatement “a real game-changer.”

“God uses the unlikely to confound the wise,” Porter added. “I love how God can use somebody – it doesn’t matter what area they are in. This guy chose duck hunting over professional football. He used his God-given talent to come up with a duck call that leads to the # 1 cable show and he suddenly has more prominence and influence and a bigger platform than any football star. And all America rises up to stand with him.”



“The biggest danger to Christianity is the spiral of silence,” Porter added. The homosexual lobby “seeks to silence us with name-calling and threats. If they are allowed to silence the truth, they will silence the Gospel. If you care about the Gospel, you need to speak up now.”

Knight: GOP Can Win If It Runs Against Evolution

The American Civil Rights Union’s Robert Knight, who has been encouraging Republicans to run on social issues such as hostility to abortion rights and opposition to LGBT equality, now thinks the GOP should campaign on denying the existence of evolution.

Citing a Pew poll which shows that belief in evolution has plummeted in the GOP and is now shared by only a minority of Republicans, Knight told the American Family Association’s One News Now that “Republicans have a great opportunity” to expose the “lies that liberals have told over the years” and begin “questioning evolution more than ever.”

He also warns that a belief in evolution “leads to terrible things like socialism and communism and fascism and Nazism and the more extreme forms of liberalism in this country.”

Knight should take heart that Republicans have been working to undercut the teaching of evolution for decades, and we here at Right Wing Watch hope the GOP embraces this foolproof political strategy. "Evolution is at the core of a left-wing, secular, humanist worldview that has been breathing down everybody's necks in America for years [and telling us that] the best we can do is empower government to make our decisions for us," he offers. "That leads to terrible things like socialism and communism and fascism and Nazism and the more extreme forms of liberalism in this country."

The political commentator is encouraged that more Republicans reject the concept – and believes it could bode well for the GOP at election time later this year.

"The Republicans have a great opportunity to say Look, we've witnessed the collapse of a lot of lies that liberals have told over the years, and now we're questioning evolution more than ever as a basis for people's worldviews," Knight suggests. "So the dynamics are fascinating – and I think they could add up to an enormous conservative revival in this country."

'Operation American Spring' Claims Support From 'High Ranking Military Leaders'

The organizer of a May 16 rally calling for President Obama’s overthrow claims that he has the support of “a number of high ranking military leaders” who will assist in “a gigantic ‘movement to action’ in D.C.”

Col. Harry Riley, who is putting on the event with the backing of Jim Garrow and former general Paul Vallely, wouldn’t be the first conservative activist to call for military action against Obama.

Riley told Renew America’s Sher Zieve that he hopes for an Egyptian-style uprising to bring an end to “the tyrannical, dictator like regime that is taking American into the abyss.”

Sher: Thanks so much for being here, today, Col. Riley. You have taken on quite a task with "Operation American Spring" that has now gone viral on the Internet. Would you tell the readers what inspired you to begin the program, which is designed to lead toward the occupation of Washington D.C. in May?

Col. Riley: Five years of America screaming for some resolution from the tyrannical, dictator like regime that is taking American into the abyss....we've shuffled paper to congress, the media, town halls, every conceivable avenue to no avail. America is sinking desperately closer to a dictatorship...Barack Obama has no intention of adhering to the US constitution. The people of Egypt gave me inspiration...they said "enough is enough," took action by the millions to reach a solution. Their model is applicable to America as we find ourselves in an undesirable, tyrannical regime.....we are not modeling the Egyptian government, nor their military...it's the action of the Egyptian people we're modeling. Our government structure is fine, our Founding Fathers were brilliant, so we're happy with America government structure, except the tyrannical leadership in Washington, D.C.

Sher: During our recent conversation, you indicated that you are working with a small staff to accomplish your goals. After so many recent firings of our military leaders, one would think these leaders would be ready to expose Barack Obama for whom and what he really is. Why do you think so many high-ranking military men have been reluctant to say anything about this man who is openly and systematically destroying the USA and its Constitution; the Constitution that they have sworn to uphold?

Col. Riley: We have a number of high ranking military leaders who are in support of a gigantic "movement to action" in D.C. as we discuss in www.patriotsforamerica.ning.com We are witnessing exponential attention and emphasis from "grass roots" America. That's where this mission, Operation American Spring is coming from.

Garrow: Obama Part Of Arab-Chinese-Communist Conspiracy, Children Need DNA Test

Right-wing activist Jim Garrow wants the Obama children to be DNA tested because, he suggests, they might not be related to the president because he prefers to have sex with “his boys.” In case you aren’t familiar yet, Garrow is a fraudster who has been making waves on birther outlets by claiming that he is a former intelligence officer with secret information about President Obama’s mysterious conspiracies involving nuclear attacks on America and aliens.

In an interview with the Hagmann & Hagmann Report last week, Garrow said that “Bathhouse Barry” has an “agreement” with First Lady, whom he calls “Moochelle,” to “feed” his “sexual proclivity.” He doubted that Sasha and Malia are the president’s children, saying “what needs to happen is somebody needs to get some DNA samples over there.”

Garrow also alleged that wealthy Arabs, among others, paid for Obama’s college education, as part of a plot to turn black students into “commie-influenced people who would serve the best interests of these Arab states” with ties to China’s People Liberation Army, information he claimed he received from Obama’s half-brother Mark Obama Ndesandjo.

Farah: Obama Proves He's Evil By Watching House Of Cards

Joseph Farah, the editor of WorldNetDaily, is outraged that President Obama is a fan of the Netflix series “House of Cards,” and is particularly scandalized by the president’s joking observation that the show’s ruthless lead character, House Majority Whip Francis Underwood, is “getting a lot of stuff done.”

Anyone who actually watched the president’s comments could tell that he was clearly joking, but Farah claims that Obama is “shamelessly promoting” Underwood’s corrupt behavior and sees him as a “role model.”

“Is it appropriate, responsible and thoughtful for a president of the United States to champion blackmail, extortion, threats, intimidation, lies, provocation and murder as the best way to do business in Washington?” Farah asks in his column today. “He’s not even the least bit self-conscious about proclaiming his admiration for a character who is rotten to the core.”

We can only imagine how much fun it is to watch TV with Farah.

You can tell a lot about people by what they watch on television.

They say you are what you eat. It’s also true that what you choose to consume with the eye says much about your soul.



It’s about how corruption is the key to getting things done in Washington.

It’s also explicitly pornographic. You won’t see a single episode that doesn’t include the most ridiculous examples of gratuitous sex, meant only to appeal to the prurient interest of voyeurs.

All that would be disturbing, given the occupant of the White House has become a public promoter of the show. But it’s much worse than that.



So I have to ask myself: What is Barack Obama doing promoting this show? Why is he giving interviews saying he wishes things could be done the way Frank Underwood does them? Is it appropriate, responsible and thoughtful for a president of the United States to champion blackmail, extortion, threats, intimidation, lies, provocation and murder as the best way to do business in Washington?



But Obama is shamelessly promoting it without any caveats whatsoever.

Worse yet, he is out there suggesting Frank Underwood – a murderer – is a role model for him.



Make no mistake about it if you haven’t watched the first season of “House of Cards”: Obama has expressed admiration for a character who is a ruthless thug – a godfather-style figure who will use any means necessary to get his way.

Of course, that character is a liberal Democrat – so it’s OK.

None of this surprises me.

Obama is not a virtuous man of character. We know that after five years in office. But he’s not even the least bit self-conscious about proclaiming his admiration for a character who is rotten to the core – a cheater, an adulterer, one who even plans and executes the murder of a fellow member of Congress.

He’s setting a great example for the nation, isn’t he? He’s really raising the bar on expectations of the next generation, isn’t he? Is he going to recommend the show to his own children, even as he publicly extols it to the entire nation without any reservations?

We’ve come a long way since George Washington, haven’t we?

Paranoia-Rama: Obama's Alien Mission, Comic Book Communism & How Salsa Is Destroying America

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Did you know that you can be thrown in jail simply for criticizing President Obama? Or that Obama will soon pretend to speak with aliens as part of a ploy to silence the criticism that he has apparently already criminalized? Learn more in this week’s edition of Paranoia-Rama:

5. Obama’s Alien-Canadian Plot

Since President Obama failed to nuke the U.S. and kill 90 percent of Americans, activist Jim Garrow claims that he is now preparing “the greatest deception that mankind has ever faced”: contact with alien life.

Apparently, attempting to nuke America didn’t help the president become more popular, so Garrow reasons that the president will now try to improve his polling numbers by pretending to be in “communication with people from other civilizations beyond Earth.” Garrow argues that if that doesn’t work, Obama will call in troops from Canada to start repressing and killing civilians… including Garrow himself.

4. Mexican Food Destroying America

The White Nationalists over at VDARE are outraged by the way the Associated Press reported on salsa becoming America’s No. 1 condiment. VDARE linked the stories of salsa overtaking ketchup to the War on Christmas, arguing that the media is trying to undercut America’s cultural identity with “Hispanic Cuisine Hype” and “the Demographic-Change-Is-Inevitable theme.”

Blogger Allan Wall asked, ruefully, if the “historic American nation” is about to be “radically transformed, beyond recognition, without our permission?”

3. Nelson Mandela Comic Book Is Dangerous Communist Brainwashing

Accuracy In Media’s Cliff Kincaid is upset about the release of a new comic book chronicling the life of Nelson Mandela, which Kincaid fears will indoctrinate kids into communism by not calling Mandela a communist.

“If used in schools and libraries, this comic book will deceive ‘students and reluctant readers’ about how communism has come to power in South Africa. What purpose is served by that?” Kincaid asks. “It will enable the same forces to make even more gains around the world, including in the United States, by operating as ‘progressives.’”

He is also upset that people refer to South Africa as a democratic state, as Kincaid believes it is a communist nation committing anti-white genocide.

2. It Is Now Illegal To Criticize Obama!

If it was a crime to criticize President Obama, then almost everyone we monitor here on RightWingWatch would probably be in jail right now. But televangelists Jim Bakker and Rick Joyner now seem to believe that the government has banned criticism of Obama.

“Usually I don’t mention the president anymore, it’s very frightening, because they can take and put you in prison now if you speak out against our leaders,” Bakker said. “I don’t know what happened to America, this is not the America I knew when I was a boy.” Joyner added: “I believe if we don’t speak out we’re all going to be in prison very, very soon.”

Of course, this is the exact same shtick that the far right used to gin up fear and anger during the debate over the 2009 Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Religious Right activists predicted that anti-gay activists and pastors would be thrown into jail as soon as the law was enacted. Of course, they were lying.

1. Benghazi Conspiracy Theory Gets Even More Desperate

As their conspiracy theory surrounding the 2012 Benghazi attack continues to unravel, now right-wing activists and Republicans claim the New York Times is part of a cover-up…of something.

After a Times investigation into the incident debunked the GOP’s messaging about the attack and the administration’s response, Republican congressmen including Mike Rogers, Trey Gowdy and Lynn Westmoreland are now saying that the Times editorial board must have concocted the report in order to help Hillary Clinton’s potential presidential campaign.

Of course, the congressmen have absolutely no evidence to back up any of their allegations, but it’s not like a lack of evidence got in the way of their increasingly desperate and partisan Benghazi witch hunt.

LaBarbera: Robin Roberts' Coming Out 'Is A Tragedy'

After Robin Roberts of Good Morning America came out of the closet, it was only a matter of time before Americans For Truth About Homosexuality head Peter LaBarbera attacked her for being gay. In an interview with Vic Eliason of VCY America yesterday, LaBarbera blasted Roberts for her “defiance” and lamented that “every coming out is a tragedy.”

“And how sad that our First Lady and the White House in general and President Obama as well, all celebrate homosexuality,” LaBarbera added.

Eliason also seemed to be confused by Roberts’ gender.

Later in the interview, LaBarbera invoked Ronald Reagan’s “evil empire” speech to explain his campaign against gay rights.

“The homosexual so-called marriage movement is evil,” LaBarbera said. “We need to do what Reagan did with communism, we need to come right out there and say: this movement attaching the God-ordained good of marriage to an abomination which is homosexuality, calling that marriage, that’s evil, it’s an evil movement.” He went on to claim that “the homosexual so-called marriage movement has become a huge platform to corrupt children” as its message “corrupts the minds and the souls of young children.”

Later, the two also railed against the transgender community as Satanic, and Eliason likened transgender people to circus “freak shows.”

LaBarbera: It just gets worse and worse, Vic. Transgender advocacy are people who believe that their biological sex, male or female, doesn’t match what they feel. I’ll tell you what Vic, Satan really works through feelings, doesn’t he?

Eliason: He sure does.

LaBarbera: Because life is not what you feel. If every married couple acted on their given feelings day-to-day we would have a lot more divorces in this culture, wouldn’t we? Feelings does not determine truth.



Eliason: You know, Peter, years and years ago the old fashioned circus used to have a display in some kind of a cage or a display factor that had a ‘bearded lady’ as a freak. Today we don’t even have to worry about that, it will be happening in your department stores, it will be happening in the public school, the issue of cross-dresses and transvestites and all of this type of thing certainly is what you’re talking about.

Garrow: Obama Tried To Kill Me!

In case you aren’t familiar with Jim Garrow, he is a right-wing activist and fraudster who has recently become a trusted source and hero to several far-right commentators by asserting that he is a former intelligence operative determined to expose President Obama’s plan to nuke America and making generally insane claims about how Obama will soon reveal that he is communicating with alien life in order to improve his approval ratings.

On his Facebook page today, Garrow alleged that Obama is now trying to kill him:

Oops - you missed:

So this is the year of the attempted killing of Jim Garrow - 2014, a banner year. Here is the long and the short of the attempt.

I received a message from a man who had been an off and on contact on facebook and had made encouraging statements over time. The man identified himself as a dual citizen, American/Canadian who shared my view that the Republic was in danger and that Obama was a despot in the making having no regard for the rule of law.

The gentleman wanted to meet face to face and have a chance to chat with the man "who he considered to be a hero". Nice ego building stuff. Most importantly he was inviting me to have lunch on him. I will do amazing things for a free lunch (stopping short of welfare or ripping off the State). So we arranged to meet in a location about 35 minutes drive from my place and off I went in my Lexus SUV to the meet. I didn't make it as the transmission and drives to the wheels went wonky, making weird noises and just not working properly. I ended up limping back home and changing cars. A quick look showed me that the lines for the fluids had been severed just enough to get me driving with the hope of someone that I would be "inconvenienced" in some manner by the locking up of the transmission or the drives to the wheels in some way. Now this day is one of the coldest this winter with -22 degree temps. So the cold helped to save my life.

...

Interestingly enough the arranged conversation with the gentleman who paid for lunch edged into his desire for me to be involved in a plot to assassinate President Obama. This stuff is certainly coming "fast and furious". I can't wait for my interviews today as I explain to folks these curious turns of events. So Jan 2nd becomes the day they try to kill me and the day they try to involve me in a murder plot. Neat and tidy. Curiously however is that if the attempt on my life had worked, they wouldn't have needed to involve me in a murder plot. Just trying to take a player out of the game I would guess.

LaBarbera: 'Glee' Has Turned America Against God

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality lamented late last month that “America is becoming a profane nation that is against God” thanks to gay marriage and TV shows like Glee.

Speaking with Sandy Rios of the American Family Association on December 20, LaBarbera hailed Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay views while arguing that openly gay people have warped the minds of young people.

In his generation, I think he’s 67, it was just taken for granted that homosexuality was wrong, an abomination, something terrible, awful. But look at where we are now, you have programs like Glee where you have young men with romantic kisses on TV, I just learned that the Rose Bowl parade is going to have a homosexual so-called marriage float, all of those little kids are going to be seeing two men or two women or whatever it is getting married so-called and it’s going to infect their minds and corrupt those young minds.

LaBarbera, who recently traveled to Jamaica to defend the country’s ban on gay sex, denounced U.S.-led efforts to promote LGBT rights abroad.

He warned that the “homosexual agenda” will ultimately bring America down, because homosexuality “is in the vanguard of bringing societies down, I think it’s the marker for a declining society and if that’s the case then America is in big trouble because we have become a radical pro-gay culture. I was in Jamaica just a couple of weeks ago, we’re spreading immorality around the world, we’re exporting homosexuality now to these little countries like Jamaica using our foreign aid dollars.”
