Stan Solomon: Trayvon Martin Deserved To Die And So Does 'That Faggot' Dan Savage

Conservative talk show host Stan Solomon is obsessed with the idea that President Obama is fomenting a race war in order to murder white, Christian heterosexuals, so when we noticed he was hosting a special “Race In America” program to commemorate the March on Washington, we knew we had to watch. Solomon -- who regularly interviews conservative figures including Phyllis Schlafly, E.W. Jackson, Larry Pratt and Alan Keyes -- used the occasion to deliver an epic rant accusing Jews, gays, African Americans and Muslims of being pawns of the Satanic left, hailing the murder of Trayvon Martin and announcing that he hopes “that faggot” Dan Savage dies.

Listen to me carefully. No you don’t, kiss my Obama, I don’t give a damn what you do, I know what I’m going to do and I know what people with an ‘I’ and a ‘Q’ are going to do. The left, which is godless and serves Satan, has an agenda. To accomplish their agenda they have to get idiots, morons, numbnuts to do stupid things so the focus will be on them and not on the libs, not on the leftists. Jews, homosexuals, blacks, gays, Islamists, you may think they’re disparate groups, they’re not, they’re all tools. Because while we’re mad at these two punks, we’re mad at Trayvon Martin, that thug that deserves to be dead and I’m glad he’s dead.

Pieces of crap, homosexuals like what’s that one guy’s name? [Dan] Savage. That faggot. That horrible, awful, terrible excuse for a human being who is at the White House promoting attacks on Christians. I hope he dies — he probably will — of every disease known. By the way, I’m sending him a fire hydrant for his birthday, I’m hoping he’ll sit on it; he’ll slide all the way down to the ground. Sorry fire hydrant fans, I don’t mean to insult fire hydrants.

At any rate, do you understand what I’m saying here? These groups are being recruited. Environmentalists, nuclear freeze, it doesn’t make a difference what group it is. If you put anything ahead of doing what’s right in God’s eyes, or better yet ignoring the reality of God, then you’re a tool, you’re a useful idiot.

Solomon then called on his white viewers to buy guns to protect themselves against black and Latino “terrorists.”

“If you’re white, you’re a target,” Solomon contended. “Get a gun, know how to use it, never be without it and don’t leave your family unprotected.” He warned that black and Latino public school and college students are “terrorists in training” who are “being taught” to hate white people. 

“You have to go to college and admit, ‘Oh if you’re white it’s unfair.’ Pretend like you’re black, pretend like you’re a homosexual, which means you are sick and stupid and ignorant and going to die, early,” Solomon continued.

“If somebody comes at you—I don’t give a damn if you’re white, black, pink or purple—and you’re not sure, shoot him and find out later. It’s better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.”

“George Zimmerman knows all about that,” co-host “Chief” Steve Davis replied.

But it didn’t end there.

Solomon, not one to hold back on making racist jokes about Michelle Obama, attacked the first lady over her promotion of healthy eating among youth: “They have that Michelle O-Buick butt Obama’s you know, by the way, she doesn’t eat that crap, she eats like a garbage disposal at a fast food joint. Actually, they might name one after her….They just eat the biggest junk in the world.”

He said he wouldn’t say anything about Malia and Sasha Obama, “except that I wish them the best having crap for parents.”

Lopez: Scott Brown Won't Help Ex-Gay Movement Because He Was 'Sexually Abused Himself'

In an American Thinker column today, Robert Oscar Lopez – a professor, columnist, gay erotic novelist, and anti-gay activist who has been lauded by groups such as the National Organization for Marriage – attacks former Republican Sen. Scott Brown for supporting the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and defending New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, claiming that these positions are the result of the sexual abuse that Sen. Brown experienced as a child.

Lopez is upset that Brown wants to open the GOP to include “rich corporate homosexuals who are interested in having in vitro kids by surrogate moms and shutting up anyone who objects” and that he has defended Christie, who recently signed into a law a ban on ex-gay therapy for minors. Lopez then goes into detail about Brown’s nude photo shoot for Cosmopolitan when he was 22 years old.

“Something tells me that someone who feels comfortable disrobing in front of a camera and being gawked at by masturbating strangers won't fully understand why many men and women would want to keep Don't Ask Don't Tell in place,” Lopez writes.

“It isn't as if Scott Brown has been sexually abused himself -- oh wait, yes, he was. Like many women who are sexually assaulted and later become strippers or prostitutes, Scott Brown probably dealt with his sexual trauma by modeling nude ten years after being mauled at a camp.”

Lopez argues that because Brown “dealt with male-male sexual abuse his way,” he must think that “other men should have to figure things out on their own,” rather than seek ex-gay therapy: “He expects other men who don't want to be sexually mauled by homosexuals to be stuck showering inches away from them in Army barracks with no recourse to therapy to avoid falling into homosexual behavior themselves as a consequence of the trauma.”

He claims that due to the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, thousands of soldiers have “fallen victim to the sexual anomie” of the military. Christie and Brown, Lopez writes, have succumbed “to their respective worldly vices: posing nude and binge-eating,” and shouldn’t be “anywhere on the national Republican ticket in 2016.”

“[T]o Hades with them both. I'm sick of this crap.”

(HT: RWW reader Matthew Briol)

There is no mention from Scott Brown at all of social conservatives who worry about religious freedom, the sanctity of marriage, and the rights of children to be raised by a mom and dad. (If I were libertarian, I wouldn't be wild about Brown's commentary, either.) So we have a pretty clear idea of what kind of big spenders Scott Brown wants in his "big tent." (Can we please find a new cliché?) I'm thinking rich corporate homosexuals who are interested in having in vitro kids by surrogate moms and shutting up anyone who objects.

Nowhere did Scott Brown mention the fact that Chris Christie had just signed into law a moronic statute making it illegal for minors to get therapy to avoid homosexual behavior. Christie was not content merely to sign this stupid law and join an elite class of like-minded governors including Jerry Brown (who signed the first state ban against "ex-gay" therapy in California). He also belly-flopped into the realms of psychobiology and theology, insisting that gay people are born that way and that homosexuality isn't a sin. To say such a thing, he had to have never read the actual research by sexologists who can find no proof of genetically caused homosexuality. He also must have never read a book called the Bible.



He did pose nude in the early 1980s, and come to think of it, that should have set off alarms in Republican minds when they were hyping up his run for Teddy Kennedy's old seat. Something tells me that someone who feels comfortable disrobing in front of a camera and being gawked at by masturbating strangers won't fully understand why many men and women would want to keep Don't Ask Don't Tell in place.

It isn't as if Scott Brown has been sexually abused himself -- oh wait, yes, he was. Like many women who are sexually assaulted and later become strippers or prostitutes, Scott Brown probably dealt with his sexual trauma by modeling nude ten years after being mauled at a camp. Perhaps he feels that because he dealt with male-male sexual abuse his way, other men should have to figure things out on their own.

He gets to showcase his wounds in interviews and write a book about the whole experience. He expects other men who don't want to be sexually mauled by homosexuals to be stuck showering inches away from them in Army barracks with no recourse to therapy to avoid falling into homosexual behavior themselves as a consequence of the trauma. And now, if a man feels threatened by a homosexual aggressor in the military the way Scott Brown was threatened by a male aggressor when he was ten, there will soon be no chaplains to consult in faith-based terms. The chaplaincy is slowly being cleansed of anybody who doesn't rubberstamp the gay lobby's ideology.

Welcome to Scott Brown's and Chris Christie's brave new world of strong national security: instead of banning discussion of homosexual acts in high-risk situations where naked young soldiers are vulnerable, use the police powers of the state to ban discussion of things that young people with homosexual attractions can do other than become adult homosexuals.

We had to repeal the Don't Ask Don't Tell law to see what was in it -- pace Nancy Pelosi -- and now that the law is gone, we have several thousand more men who've fallen victim to the sexual anomie that supporters of Don't Ask Don't Tell, unlike Scott Brown, rightly feared. I am sure that the new laws banning ex-gay therapy will give us more of the same theatrics.

Both Scott Brown and Chris Christie can't connect dots. This whole recent fracas began when Christie bashed Rand Paul for worrying about a police state and then bashed Paul and Jindal for being too much like college professors. Scott Brown, apparently as much of an airhead as Christie, has jumped into his little dinghy, and the two of them want to row off to some island in an alternate universe where conservatives don't care about government interfering with their therapy sessions, stifling their religious beliefs, and listening in to their phone calls. What's important is landing big donors, winning, and succumbing to their respective worldly vices: posing nude and binge-eating. Why think when you can just stuff your mouth, strip naked for a photog, and shout your mouth off in Jersey and Boston accents? So I say, to Hades with them both. I'm sick of this crap.

To paraphrase a line from a great Gilded Age novel, "it is much safer to be fond of dangerous people." In this day and age, with the gay lobby wielding tremendous power and influence, it's safer to agree with them than to get into arguments with them.

Except if you want to run for national office as a Republican. If either Brown or Christie ends up anywhere on the national Republican ticket in 2016, I am voting third party or writing in someone else. I think all conservatives should draw a bright red line at this point.

Bauer: If Planned Parenthood Ally Martin Luther King Were Alive Today, He Would Be Fighting Planned Parenthood

Gary Bauer told members of the Campaign for Working Families that if Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today, he would be an anti-abortion activist fighting Planned Parenthood, which Bauer falsely suggested is attempting to commit black genocide:

Far from promoting Planned Parenthood's agenda, Reverend King would expose its racist roots and point out that it deliberately locates abortion facilities in inner city communities. He would weep at that fact, which has resulted in more than 20 million aborted black babies, a death toll the KKK could not reach in its most deranged dreams.

Bauer might want to do his homework, as King actually received the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood and told executive committee member Cass Canfield that it “will remain among my most cherished possessions”:

Dear Mr. Canfield:

Words are inadequate for me to say how honored I was to be the recipient of the Margaret Sanger Award. This award will remain among my most cherished possessions. While I cannot claim to be worthy of such a signal honor, I can assure you that I accept it with deep humility and sincere gratitude. Such a wonderful expression of support is of inestimable value for the continuance of my humble efforts.

Again let me say how much I regret that at the last minute urgent developments in the civil rights movement made it impossible for me to be in Washington to personally receive the award. My wife brought glowing echoes of the wonderful reception and impressiveness of the total occasion.

I am happy to be the recipient of the Margaret Sanger Award and I can assure you that this distinct honor will cause me to work even harder for a reign of justice and a rule of love all over our nation.

Sincerely yours,

Martin Luther King Jr.

Bauer may also want to read King’s essay on the importance of family planning and groups like Planned Parenthood for the African American community:

There is a striking kinship between our movement and Margaret Sanger's early efforts. She, like we, saw the horrifying conditions of ghetto life. Like we, she knew that all of society is poisoned by cancerous slums. Like we, she was a direct actionist — a nonviolent resister. She was willing to accept scorn and abuse until the truth she saw was revealed to the millions. At the turn of the century she went into the slums and set up a birth control clinic, and for this deed she went to jail because she was violating an unjust law. Yet the years have justified her actions. She launched a movement which is obeying a higher law to preserve human life under humane conditions. Margaret Sanger had to commit what was then called a crime in order to enrich humanity, and today we honor her courage and vision; for without them there would have been no beginning. Our sure beginning in the struggle for equality by nonviolent direct action may not have been so resolute without the tradition established by Margaret Sanger and people like her. Negroes have no mere academic nor ordinary interest in family planning. They have a special and urgent concern.

Recently the subject of Negro family life has received extensive attention. Unfortunately, studies have overemphasized the problem of the Negro male ego and almost entirely ignored the most serious element — Negro migration. During the past half century Negroes have migrated on a massive scale, transplanting millions from rural communities to crammed urban ghettoes. In their migration, as with all migrants, they carried with them the folkways of the countryside into an inhospitable city slum. The size of family that may have been appropriate and tolerable on a manually cultivated farm was carried over to the jammed streets of the ghetto. In all respects Negroes were atomized, neglected and discriminated against. Yet, the worst omission was the absence of institutions to acclimate them to their new environment. Margaret Sanger, who offered an important institutional remedy, was unfortunately ignored by social and political leaders in this period. In consequence, Negro folkways in family size persisted. The problem was compounded when unrestrained exploitation and discrimination accented the bewilderment of the newcomer, and high rates of illegitimacy and fragile family relationships resulted.

For the Negro, therefore, intelligent guides of family planning are a profoundly important ingredient in his quest for security and a decent life. There are mountainous obstacles still separating Negroes from a normal existence. Yet one element in stabilizing his life would be an understanding of and easy access to the means to develop a family related in size to his community environment and to the income potential he can command.

This is not to suggest that the Negro will solve all his problems through Planned Parenthood. His problems are far more complex, encompassing economic security, education, freedom from discrimination, decent housing and access to culture. Yet if family planning is sensible it can facilitate or at least not be an obstacle to the solution of the many profound problems that plague him.

Cliff Kincaid Reminisces About Time When The Government Classified LGBT People As 'Perverts'

Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media is blaming the massive security leak conducted by Chelsea Manning on President Obama’s support for LGBT rights. Although the leak occurred prior to the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Kincaid insists that Obama’s “desire to overturn the homosexual exclusion policy was undoubtedly a factor in Army officials’ looking the other way on Manning.”

Kincaid then tied it all back to Glenn Greenwald, the openly gay reporter who published reports based on information from NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

All of these leaks wouldn’t have occurred, Kincaid reasons, in the good old days when the government labeled LGBT people as “perverts.”

CNN's story "Chelsea or Bradley Manning: Addressing transgender people" ignores the other alternative – he/she is simply a pervert who should have been booted out of the service years ago and should never have received a security clearance. The key question – not pursued by the media – is why Manning was allowed to remain in the Army when he was acting in violation of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," policy.

Manning will pay a price in prison, but those who permitted this to happen have still not been held accountable.



The buck stops with President Obama, whose announced desire to overturn the homosexual exclusion policy was undoubtedly a factor in Army officials' looking the other way on Manning.

In our August 20, 2010, article "Accused Army Traitor Cruised Gay Bars," we noted that, according to information then developed by CNN, Manning had been cruising the homosexual subculture for several years, under the noses of his military superiors, and even went to gay bars.

Despite this homosexual scandal, Congress voted to repeal the homosexual exclusion policy.

In our article "Pentagon Celebrates Gay Pride During Treason Trial," we noted that Obama's Defense Department hosted a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month event which failed to include any mention, pro or con, of the most celebrated homosexual soldier in American history, Bradley Manning, then on trial for treason.

It was a strange omission. Why weren't they proud of their gay solider?



We don't know everything there is to know about NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who supposedly has a girlfriend that he abandoned in order to flee to China and then Russia. But his handler, Guardian writer Glenn Greenwald, is an open homosexual with Marxist links whose "partner" was detained on his way through London and had his laptop, camera, memory sticks, and DVDs confiscated by authorities.

The media won't remind us of this fact, but two previous NSA defectors to the Soviet Union/Russia, Bernon F. Mitchell and William H. Martin, were also perverts.



At that time, the government frowned on employing homosexuals and "deviates." In fact, a 1950 congressional report was titled "Employment of Homosexuals and Other Sex Perverts in Government" and said that the FBI, the CIA, and the intelligence services of the Army, Navy, and Air Forces were all "in complete agreement that sex perverts in government constitute security risks."

Can you imagine a government report nowadays referring to "perverts?"

The Gay AIDS Ring Video Pat Robertson Doesn't Want You To See

The Christian Broadcasting Network has embarked on a total and frankly embarrassing cover-up of Pat Robertson’s statement yesterday that gay people in San Francisco try to cut people’s fingers with special rings in order to infect them with AIDS. After editing Robertson’s comments out of their online broadcast of the 700 Club and taking down their own YouTube video featuring the claims, CBN has now filed with a flimsy copyright complaint against Right Wing Watch’s copy of the video on YouTube, causing it to be temporarily removed.

That’s right, CBN is going out of its way to get rid of all evidence of comments made by CBN’s own founder, who even released a statement defending his assertions and insisted that he was once a target of a malicious gay AIDS ring plot. We have uploaded the video to Vimeo which you can watch here, unless CBN tries to take it down (UPDATE: Vimeo pulled the video, but you can now watch it on DailyMotion. UPDATE II: A third party [we wonder who!] complained to DailyMotion and pulled the video, which you can find, for now, at Flickr.com):

This isn’t the first time that CBN has manipulated comments Robertson has made on the channel’s flagship show, The 700 Club. Last year, the network unsuccessfully attempted to edit out Robertson’s call for a man to move to Saudi Arabia in order to beat his wife.

It’s ironic that Robertson believes that gay people are trying to censor him with hate speech laws, when it appears that the only people trying to censor Robertson are his own staff at CBN.

As Steve Benen notes, “Robertson really shouldn’t say things on national television if he doesn’t want people to see them.”

While Robertson’s gay AIDS ring conspiracy theory is outrageous and absurd, it is also ridiculous that the television network Robertson leads is now on a mission to suppress comments that Robertson himself believes are accurate and truthful.

From Obamacare to amnesty for illegal immigrants; from gay marriage to the coercively indoctrinated normalization of homosexuality; from the legal imposition of cowardice by forcing people to flee rather than defend their lives and property, to the relentless push to destroy the Second Amendment's prohibition against disarming their courage – Obama and the power-mad forces he represents are thrusting their bayonets into the soft underbelly of America's way of life.

Bradlee Dean: Gays Commit Half Of All Murders, Obama Is A 'Homo' And Maddow Is A 'Shim'

On this weekend’s edition of Sons of Liberty Radio, hosts Bradlee Dean and Jake McMillan claimed that gay people are responsible for half of all murders committed in large US cities, among other crimes.

After Dean said that homosexuality and abortion are the “last two stages that a country takes before God judges that country,” McMillan charged that “half of the murders in large cities were committed by homosexuals; thirty-three percent of child abuse cases were committed by homosexuals; half of the foster children molestations were done by homosexuals.”

McMillan explained, to Dean’s agreement, that gays are prone to criminality because “when a person’s mind has gone to that extent of committing an abominable act, it shows what else they are capable of.”

McMillan later recounted an interview with a gay reporter in which he charged that all people, including gays, are created equal, “but not when you make choices; if you break the law you’re no longer protected by the law.”

“God gives us strict orders to deal with people that commit such crimes in this life,” Dean said, “as a mercy to society.”

Dean wondered if gay people are “thinking to themselves, ‘These people are really falling for this.” But of course gay rights are gaining ground, Dean claimed, since “they got their homo in office,” and have “infiltrated” the White House.

The right-wing commentator also discussed his hugely unsuccessful lawsuit against Rachel Maddow for accurately quoting his claim that Muslims who want to execute gay people are “more moral” than Christians. Dean repeatedly referred to Maddow as “shim,” since he doesn’t know if the MSNBC host is a “he or she,” and said that he “started getting death threats” as a result of her program.

“Folks you need to understand what you’re dealing with, when you’re looking at the homosexual agenda, gay marriage, this administration, folks, by you tolerating their lawlessness, I want you to understand something, by you tolerating their lawlessness you are moving the seat of violence closer to your front door,” Dean stated. “Without you dealing with it, evil will prevail and rest assured evil is prevailing against you.”

Mefferd Links Trans Rights To Case Of Attempted Murder

Religious Right talk show host Janet Mefferd is using an attempted murder case in Jacksonville, Florida, to attack protections for the transgender community. On her Facebook page, Mefferd links to a New York Daily News article about how “a Florida man tried to kill a 9-year-old-girl in a Best Buy bathroom,” but was stopped after a customer heard the screams and informed the staff.

Although the suspect is not transgender and Jacksonville does not have a policy on sexual orientation and gender identity protections, Mefferd claims that the case is evidence that transgender-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinances, or, as she calls them, “bathroom bills,” are “horrible pieces of legislation that need to be defeated.”

Robertson: Gay People Deliberately Spread HIV/AIDS By Cutting People With Special Rings

UPDATE: Robertson's CBN yanked our video off YouTube, but you can still watch it here on Daily Motion. It was also taken down by Vimeo:

UPDATE II: A third party (we wonder who!) flagged the Dailymotion video for "infringing upon [their] intellectual property rights." It is now available on Flickr.com.

UPDATE III: YouTube has restored the video in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson told co-host Terry Meeuwsen that gay men in cities like San Francisco attempt to spread HIV/AIDS to others by cutting them with a special ring when shaking hands. However, one could not hear Robertson make the remarks on the episode his Christian Broadcasting Network posted online, as the company once again appears to have edited Robertson’s comments after they aired.

While responding to a question from a woman who wondered if it was wrong for the church not to inform her that a man she was driving to worship services is “dying of AIDS,” Robertson admitted that he “used to think it was transmitted by saliva and other things, now they say it may be sexual contact.”

“What to say if you’re driving an elderly man whose got AIDS? Don’t have sex with them,” Robertson said, “unless there’s a cut or some bodily fluid transmission, I think you’re not going to catch it.”

But Robertson didn’t stop there.

“There are laws now, I think the homosexual community has put these draconian laws on the books that prohibit people from discussing this particular affliction, you can tell somebody you had a heart attack, you can tell them they’ve got high blood pressure, but you can’t tell anybody you’ve got AIDS,” he continued.

Despite Meeuwsen’s best attempts to steer the conversation away from Robertson’s anti-gay paranoia, Robertson insisted that gay people use special rings to transmit the virus.

“You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger,” Robertson said. “Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.”

Watch:

At the 39:00 mark, you can see that CBN clearly edited out Robertson’s comments.

UPDATE: CBN has also removed the YouTube video of the exchange.

UPDATE II: Robertson issued a non-apology to The Atlantic, saying that he "regret[s] that my remarks had been misunderstood, but this often happens because people do not listen to the context of remarks which are being said."

Of course, unlike CBN, we provided the entire exchange:

I was asked by a viewer whether she had a right to leave her church because she had been asked to transport an elderly man who had AIDS and about whose condition she had not been informed. My advice was that the risk of contagion in those circumstances was quite low and that she should continue to attend the church and not worry about the incident.

In my own experience, our organization sponsored a meeting years ago in San Francisco where trained security officers warned me about shaking hands because, in those days, certain AIDS-infected activists were deliberately trying to infect people like me by virtue of rings which would cut fingers and transfer blood.

I regret that my remarks had been misunderstood, but this often happens because people do not listen to the context of remarks which are being said. In no wise [sic] were my remarks meant as an indictment of the homosexual community or, for that fact, to those infected with this dreadful disease.
