Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 10/7/16

  • Bryan Fischer insists that in seven years of daily radio broadcasts he has never said anything that was wrong and which he needed to correct or apologize for.
  • We always hear from the Religious Right that Christians should support Donald Trump because he is such a great father who did an amazing job raising him children. Apparently, not quite.
  • Someone knighted Brigitte Gabriel.
  • Sher Zieve has some thoughts: "If VP candidate Kaine has any sanity and decency left…they’re about to depart from him forever. Once around the Clinton machine you obey or die and your sanity and soul become corrupted…permanently…as well as being the sole property of the Clinton Mafia.I do feel sorry for Tim Kaine, as he’s now on a road that will take him into the darkest corners of a very crooked path. So…are Hillary and Kaine both crazy now? Pretty much."
  • Finally, Walid Shoebat boasts that "now I stand virtually a lone voice to only realize that the nation that I loved is turning backwards to Sodom while millions of fake Christians hate us."

Glenn Beck: Bill Cosby Was Destroyed Because He Spoke Out Against The Democratic Party

On his radio show yesterday, Glenn Beck continued to complain that America has become so polarized that people are being ruthlessly attacked by their own side for daring to disagree with the party line on any issue ... which is, he said, exactly what happened to Bill Cosby.

"Consitutionalists [within the GOP] are now the black population for the Democrats," Beck said, insisting that African Americans who refuse to support the Democratic Party or its agenda are targeted for destruction and now the same thing is happening to "constitutionalists" within the Republican Party.

"I contend Bill Cosby would have gotten away with everything that he did his whole life had he not rocked the boat at the end and started talking about his community and saying, 'We've got to look at our own community,'" Beck said. "Basically, what was he saying? The same things the Democrats don't want to say about the family, the same things that they don't want to say about Detroit; that the things that we've been doing and are being told to ignore are the problem."

"You can't have anybody think, you've got to shout them down," Beck said.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 10/6/16

  • Jake MacAulay wants to see a safe space in America "that offers protection from sexually charged curriculum that promotes immoral and unethical sexual behavior, abortion-on-demand, and the gross perversion of same-sex marriage."
  • Eagle Forum fumes that "instead of expressing their gratitude for the opportunity to live in a peaceful, prosperous nation, many Somalis have been trained by leftist community organizers to adopt an entitlement mentality and quickly complain about alleged discrimination."
  • The Life Education And Resource Network (L.E.A.R.N.) will hold "3 days of demonstrations culminating at the recently opened National African American History Museum in Washington D.C. [because] Black pro-life activist and historians are stunned that their is no mention of eugenic practices perpetrated against African Americans by the government and the abortion industry."
  • Jeff Hunt complains that "Democrats are treating people of faith like criminals."
  • Jack Cashill says that "Catholics have to convince their believe-as-you-please brethren, including their priests, of one salient fact: A vote for Tim and the Alinskyite Hillary is a vote for that 'first radical,' the demonic fellow Alinsky so openly admired."
  • Finally, we are not sure what world William Gheen is living in: "It was so disturbing to see how fluidly and comfortably Tim Kaine was engaging in ... lies after lies after lies in the debate."

Bryan Fischer: Right Wing Watch Is 'Trolling' Me, Just Like Critics Did To Jesus

Earlier today, we posted a clip of Bryan Fischer asserting that many DREAMers, undocumented young people who were brought into the United States as children, grow up to become criminals, gang members and murderers.

On his radio program today, Fischer said that he sees nothing wrong with that statement and stands by it, accusing us of "trolling" him just like critics did to Jesus.

"Right Wing Watch is a liberal organization," Fischer said, "and they troll us, they troll this program, they are trolling this program right now as you and I are talking to each other. Right Wing Watch has their trolls down in the basement somewhere watching, taping, listening to every word that we speak."

"It's just like what the politicians of Jesus' day and the opponents of Jesus' day did to him," Fischer stated. "They were constantly trying to provoke him, constantly trying to catch him in something that he might say. So they were always trying to come up with these gotcha questions for Christ, always trying to goad him into saying something that they could use against him. So this is what Right Wing Watch is banking on, this is what they're hoping for."

Wiley Drake Insists That He And Alan Keyes, Not Hillary Clinton, Started The Birther Issue

Last week, extremist right-wing pastor Wiley Drake joined James David Manning, who is an extreme anti-LGBT preacher in his own right, on Manning's radio show to voice his outrage over the fact that Donald Trump is trying to blame Hillary Clinton for starting the birther conspiracy theory against President Obama.

Drake is outraged by the false claim and wants everyone to know that it was he and Alan Keyes, Obama's Republican opponent in the U.S. Senate race in 2004, who really started the campaign back in 2008 when they ran on the American Independent Party ticket.

As Drake recounted, he traveled to Washington, D.C., with Keyes to file the necessary paperwork to run for president and vice president and they both decided to attach copies of their birth certificates to the filing forms in an effort to force Obama to release his own birth certificate.

"We proceeded to go to court to demand that Barry Soetoro produce his birth certificate equally," Drake said, "because if Dr. Keyes was and I was, we felt it only fair that he produce his. Well, he refused for a long time and therein lies the beginning of the birther issue."

Rick Scarborough: Gay Marriage Has Made It Illegal For Christians To Serve As Federal Judges

Vision America's Rick Scarborough appeared on the American Pastors Network's "Stand In The Gap" radio program earlier this week to discuss his effort to encourage pastors to mobilize their congregations to vote and declared that, thanks to the Supreme Court's marriage equality ruling last year, Christians are now being banned from serving in various public offices.

Scarborough said that in his years of working to mobilize pastors to get involved in politics, he has discovered that he has had the most success at times when pastors sensed that there was a direct threat against something that they cared about.

"Whenever there's a threat, pastors seem to be quicker to respond," Scarborough said. "Well, we have that now with the threat on religious liberty driven by the radical LGBTQ effort, this whole transgender assault on biblical marriage and just sane morality."

"We already have, in effect, because of the godless ruling of the Supreme Court," he continued, "when they implemented by judicial fiat the travesty of same-sex marriage upon the country, suddenly they literally made it unlawful and illegal for Christians to hold positions on the federal courts, those with biblical values to serve in various places in the military; they're literally being drummed out on the basis that their biblical values are counter to the Constitution as written by these five unelected lawyers."

Pastors understand that "now that there's a real threat," Scarborough said. "More and more pastors now can get it and are beginning to recognize that if they don't stand today, there will be no freedom to stand tomorrow."

Bryan Fischer: Many DREAMers Grow Up To Be Criminals And Murderers

On his radio show yesterday, American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer read an article about gang violence in the town of Brentwood, New York, which is largely attributed to "MS-13, a gang with roots in Los Angeles and El Salvador." Fischer used the article to attack DREAMers, young, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, claiming that "many of them" grow up to be thugs, criminals and murderers.

Gang members "started off as illegal immigrants," Fischer said. "Some of the people that are committing these heinous murders are those who have amnesty because of President Obama, because they were children. Again, that's the impression President Obama wants to create, these are just harmless little children, they're innocent, they wouldn't harm a flea, we can't penalize them, we need to give them amnesty. Well, these young DREAMers grow up to be teenagers and many of them grow up to be juvenile delinquents and are responsible for a lot of the crime and murder that takes place."

"It would be one thing if you brought these DREAMers into the country and they stayed eight years old or they stayed nine years old or they stayed 12 and never grew up," he continued, "but they grow up to be thugs, they grow up to be juvenile delinquents who commit murders and crimes."
