Right Wing Round-Up - 3/6/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 3/6/14

  • Matt Barber says that polls showing increasing support for marriage equality are due to "leftists' propaganda."
  • Harry Jackson warns that Christians are "signing away our religious freedom."
  • ACT For America is urging a boycott of the film "Non-Stop" and spoiling the plot in the process.
  • Tim Wildmon asserts that "the common denominator the homosexual activists have with Planned Parenthood is they both promote actions that are diametrically opposed to the laws of God as given to us in the Bible."
  • Finally, FRC prays for more laws like Arizona's discrimination bill: "May God keep his own people from deception! May they arise to stand for righteousness, whatever the cost! May God raise an army of great men and women, who will preach the Gospel with Great Awakening power AND expose dishonesty by speaking the Truth in Love – without wavering – in Arizona and every state!"

Fischer: The Fight Against Homosexuality Is The Defining Battle Of Our Time

Bryan Fischer threw down the gauntlet on his radio program today, declaring the fight against homosexuality to be the defining battle of our time.

Asserting that America's future will be determined by "whether the forces of light or darkness will prevail in the battle over special rights based on sexually deviant behavior," Fischer asserted that "everywhere that Big Gay gains ground, Christ is forced into retreat."

As such, everything hinges on this battle and if the "forces of sexual normalcy" win, then America will once again become a beacon of morality and decency for the entire world. But, Fischer warned, "if the forces of sexual deviancy prevail ... every part of our culture will be corrupted, it will be contaminated beyond repair and America ... will plunge the world into a moral abyss of darkness and depravity":

Behold Wayne LaPierre's Nightmarishly Paranoid Vision Of America

There are few regular CPAC speakers who can match the NRA's Wayne LaPierre when it comes to peddling wholesale paranoia and nightmarish visions of the future as he did while speaking today when he warned that neighborhood streets that were once filled with laughter and freedom now sit ominously silent because Americans are in fear for their lives, which is why they are loading up on all the ammunition and weapons they can get.

"In the world that surrounds us," he proclaimed, "there are terrorists, and there are home-invaders, drug cartels, car-jackers, knockout-gamers, and rapers, and haters, and campus killers, airport killers, shopping mall killers, and killers who scheme to destroy our country with massive storms of violence against our power grids or vicious waves of chemicals or disease that could collapse our society that sustains us all."

"Do you trust this government to protect you?" LaPierre asked the crowd, which responded with a resounding "no!"

"We are on our own. That is a certainty":

Jindal: It May Be Time To Revisit The Assumption That Obama Is A Smart Man

It is always entertaining when milquetoast Republican governors who harbor dreams of running for president decide to try to toughen up their image by throwing red meat to the crowd at CPAC. We saw Tim Pawlenty do it several years back and Bobby Jindal do it again today when he kicked off his remarks by sarcastically offering an apology to former president Jimmy Carter for having mistakenly called him the "worst president of this great country in my lifetime."

Apparently having totally forgotten the eight-year debacle that was George W. Bush's presidency, Jindal said the title of worst president now belongs to Obama who, quite frankly, is just not very bright.

"We have long thought and said this president is a smart man," Jinda declared. "It may be time to revisit the assumption":

CPAC Entertained By Right-Wing Folk Singer

We have literally watched every CPAC conference held over the last ten years and this is the first time we've ever seen organizers schedule a break in the middle of program so that a right-wing folk singer could perform conservative protest songs on the main stage. But that is exactly what happened today when Big Dawg Music Mafia ("Where Conservative Is Cool") was given a few minutes to promote singer Chip Murray who entertained the crowd with insightful lyrics like:

"Obama's in the White House now, you'd better grab your honey,

God and guns are all we need, let's let 'em take the money":

John Bolton Vows That Conservatives Will Never Let The Issue Of Benghazi Go Away

Former ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, spoke at CPAC today where he predictably railed against the Obama administration over the attack on Benghazi, saying that it show our enemies around the world that "under Barack Obama, you can murder his personal representative and get away scot-free."

"I want to let everybody know," Bolton declared, "that conservatives are not going to let this issue go away":

Sen. Pat Toomey Praises The Smear Campaign Against Debo Adegbile

As Miranda noted yesterday, the Right had launched a full-scale smear campaign Debo Adegbile, who had been nominated by President Obama to serve as head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, over the fact that Adegbile was in charge of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund when it helped provide legal representation to Mumia Abu-Jamal.

That campaign against him succeeded as yesterday the Senate failed to confirm his nomination and Sen. Pat Toomey could not be more proud, making the case against Adegbile the focus on the remarks he delivered a CPAC today, asserting that the effort to defend Abu-Jamal was part of an "international campaign to lionize a cop-killer" that "was based on hatred for America, contempt for our criminal justice system, and the goal was to indict America as a hopelessly racist country."

And Toomey was not going to accept that, which is why he launched the fight against Adegbile's nomination because "nobody should be able to make a mockery criminal justice system, fan the flames of racial strife in America, join a dishonest international anti-American campaign, along the way drag the family of a fallen police officer through three decades of hell and then be confirmed to a high post in the Justice Department":
