Right Wing Leftovers - 5/31/13

  • Now that Michele Bachmann has announced that she is not running for re-election, her main Democratic challenger has declared "mission accomplished" and withdrawn from the race.
  • Eagle Forum continues to warn that "if an illegal alien amnesty is passed, then Democrats are likely to get a huge voter windfall."
  • Peter LaBarbera, Linda Harvey, Matt Barber, and others will protest the Human Rights Campaign next week to protest gay pride month because "homosexuality is against God; against Nature; very unhealthy; and a serious threat to children and religious freedom."
  • Bryan Fischer and John Stemberger say that the Boy Scouts of America voted to allow gay scouts because they wanted to be cool and have people like them.
  • Finally, "Christian men must understand that homosexuality is a direct raping of the relationship between Man and God."

Bryan Fischer Defends Erick Erickson From 'Dragon Lady' Megyn Kelly

Fox News commentator Erick Erickson has been under attack for the last several days for remarks he made earlier this week that men should play the dominant role in society with women serving in a complimentary role.

Not surprisingly, such views have not gone over well with a lot of people, including Fox News host Megyn Kelly who had Erickson on her program today where she ripped him for his sexist views.

Even less surprisingly, Bryan Fischer, who believes that God created women to be ruled over by their husbands, has now come rushing to Erickson's defense against that "harridan Megyn Kelly."

Calling Kelly a "feminist on steroids," Fischer said she was "resentful," "angry," "hostile," and "bitter" to these "poor guys" who were just trying to defend the biblical view of the gender roles.

Fischer went on to say that Kelly was driven by an unhealthy, bitter "angry feminist energy" before finally just calling her a "dragon lady":

Another Coherent Lesson From Glenn Beck: 'You Have to Crush the Head of the Snake'

Much of Glenn Beck's daily three-hour radio program consists of him speaking for extended, uninterrupted periods during which he expounds upon various aspects of his ever-widening, all-encompassing theory about what is truly happening in the world which only he can understand.

It is during these long stream-of-consciousness monologues that Beck's thought process often become clear; not that what he is actually saying is at all clear, because it never is, but rather the way in which his mind works becomes clear to anyone watching him try to explain how a variety of disparate and unrelated topics are really all related.

It happened again on his program yesterday when he started discussing some Bill Moyers piece from the 1980s about the various stages of a successful social movement, which Beck apparently believes that he and his allies are in the middle of leading right now.

"We don't realize how close we are to really winning," Beck said ... and then he lost us once he started talking about there being no sacrifice big enough for the machine and needing to "cut the head off of this snake" which we failed to do with Iran when we went to war in Iraq, which is now leading to World War III because "Syria isn't Syria. Syria is Russia and Iran," and which is also true for the Benghazi, IRS, and AP scandals before assuring his audience that "you're close to winning":

Glenn Beck Transforms His Network Into an Anti-Common Core Public Policy Organization

It has been several weeks since Glenn Beck spent any time talking about his Common Core conspiracy theory, despite the fact that he believes it to be "the biggest story in American history."

But just because he hasn't been talking about it much doesn't mean he hasn't been hard at work fighting against it behind the scenes.  In fact, on his program last night, he revealed that his network headquarters played host to a conference of anti-Common Core activists yesterday that was organized by none other than his best friend David Barton.

Featuring dozens of various right-wing activists, state legislators, education experts, and communications specialists, Beck's office hosted a day long conference designed to lay out a plan of attack that can be spread to Tea Party and 9/12 groups all over the nation as part of an national, coordinated effort to stop Common Core.

Beck has, in effect, turned his entire Blaze network into a public policy organization through which he is not only using his various radio and television programs to push his political agenda, but even using organizational facilities to coordinate and orchestrate a full-blown public policy campaign:

Fischer: Striking Down DOMA Will Lead to Incest, Pedophilia, Bestiality and the End of America

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer claimed that if the Supreme Court strikes down the Defense of Marriage Act, "it will be too late for America" as every state in the nation will then be forced to legalize polygamy, incest, pedophilia, and bestiality.

"It will be, at that point," Fischer said, "too late for America. We will have become Rome; we will not be slouching toward Gomorrah, we will be bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed":

Right Wing Round-Up - 5/30/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/30/13

  • Larry Klayman is pretty much just like Gandhi.
  • Janet Porter's upcoming documentary sure does have some top-notch production values.
  • Speaking of laughable production values, Matt Barber interviews an anti-gay DOJ "whistle-blower" whose voice is so disguised that she is almost impossible to understand.
  • Bryan Fischer continues to insist that Adolf Hitler was gay.
  • FRC has issued its current list of prayer targets.
  • The fact that news outlets are refusing to attend Attorney General Eric Holder's off-the-record briefing signals, to Glenn Beck, that the media is are trying to isolate him in order to protect President Obama.
  • Finally, be on the lookout for the next "gay-rights tornado."

Barton: 'You Can't Drink Starbucks and be Biblically Right'

Recently, David Barton delivered his stock presentation at during a service at Whitesburg Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama where he once again falsely asserted that the Supreme Court banned the practice of requiring Bible reading in public school because it could give students brain damage, as well as the various other false claims that he routinely makes.

But, as he frequently does, he added in a few new bits of information; in this case, a  pronouncement that Christians cannot drink Starbucks coffee because the company supports marriage equality.

"Biblically, there is no way a Christian can help support what is attacking God," Barton said, adding "I'm sorry, you've got to find some other coffee to drink.  You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing.  It's just a real simple principle":

Beck Wants Records From Obama's Blackberry to Determine if He Was the Source of 'Innocence of Muslims' Video

Just the other day, Glenn Beck was complaining that there is some coordinated effort under way to label him a conspiracy theorist ... which was, itself, part of some conspiracy.

Last night, on his television program, Beck perfectly demonstrated just why he has developed this reputation. 

For months, Beck has been claiming that President Obama was nowhere to be seen on the night of the Benghazi attack, oscillating between speculating that the president was intentionally being kept out of the loop or that he was operating off-the-record in order to conceal the truth about what was really going on.

Last night, citing a theory put forth by Charles Krauthammer, Beck said that the only phone call President Obama made that night was to the State Department in order to coordinate the message that the attack was motivated by an anti-Islam video posted on YouTube.

Beck went on to wonder if Obama has kept a personal Blackberry so that he can operate off-the-grid and not have to use White House equipment and leave any sort of recored, which then compelled him to ask "is [Obama] the origin of the video?  Who was the origin of that video?  Can we get the records of the Blackberry?"
