For The Fourth Time, Glenn Beck Repeats False Information On Air That His Own Organization Has Debunked

For the fourth time now, we have caught Glenn Beck stating on air a false claim that has been debunked by his own The Blaze website.

Just yesterday, The Blaze ran a piece entitled "Rumor Check: Obamacare Website Might Be Glitchy, But It Didn’t Cost $634 Million" that explicitly debunked the right-wing claim that Obamacare website cost over a half-billion dollars to build.

So, of course, Beck when on the air last night and just repeated it anyway:

Carson: Obamacare 'Is The Worst Thing That Has Happened In This Nation Since Slavery'

Speaking at the Values Voter Summit this morning, Ben Carson told the audience that Obamacare is "the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery."

In fact, Carson said, "it is slavery in a way because it is making all of us subservient to the government." Claiming that the passage of health care reform was all about control, Carson said the entire push for the legislation originated with Vladimir Lenin, who knew that "socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialist state":

 

Rubio: There Is A 'Rising Tide Of Intolerance' Against Conservative Christians

Speaking at the Values Voter Summit, Sen. Marco Rubio told the audience that they can never stop fighting for their social values if they hope to save this nation and complained that there is a "rising tide of intolerance" that is being directed against anyone who stands up for them.

Laughably claiming that the Christian conservative agenda is "not about imposing our religion on anyone," Rubio said people in America have a right to worship any way they choose, but he chooses to "believe that Jesus Christ is God," which elicited a thirty second standing ovation:

Lee: Conservatives Have Not Focused Enough On The Family

Senator Mike Lee of Utah was the first speaker that this year's Values Voter Summit, which he kicked off by telling the audience that the problem with conservatives is not that they have focused too much on issues relating to the family -  such as school prayer, abortion, or marriage equality - but have not focused on those issues enough:

Right Wing Round-Up - 10/10/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 10/10/13

  • A spokesperson has confirmed that Tony Perkins is considering running for Congress.
  • On an ironic semi-related note, FRC's Robert Schwarzwalder can't believe "the irrational, vicious language being used about conservatives and the GOP by those who oppose them."
  • Bryan Fischer insists that Christmas is mentioned in the Constitution.
  • Mike Ditka thinks that he could have prevented Barack Obama from becoming president.
  • Today, The Blaze debunked two popular right-wing talking points which, of course, probably won't stop Glenn Beck from continuing to repeat them.

What Is Terrifying Glenn Beck Today? The Terminator

On his radio broadcast today, in the midst of a discussion of Obamacare, Glenn Beck suddenly became very agitated over the fact that all the things predicted in science fiction books like 1984, Fahrenheit 451, and Brave New World were all coming true and nobody seems to realize it or care.

Even more terrifying to Beck was the fact that, in the near future, the world of the Terminator movies will be upon us!

"America, I ask you sincerely, are you out of your mind?" Beck wondered. "They're actually talking now about creating drones that can decide to kill or not kill themselves. I don't think that's a good idea.  I mean, I saw The Terminator movie; I know it's not real but I don't think that's a good idea ... Have you lost your mind?":

Fischer: 'Our Commander In Chief Is Waging A War On Christ'

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer asserted that a nation's military strength is intrinsically linked to its spiritual strength and, as such, America's military is growing weaker because President Obama is waging a war on Christ.

"Our Commander in Chief is waging a war on Christ in the military," Fischer said. "Now you can disguise it, you can say 'well, he's going after Christianity or he's going after Christians,' but why is he going after them?  Well, because of the first syllable in those words. What's the first syllable in Christianity? It is Christ. What's the first syllable in Christian? It is Christ. What's the first syllable in Christmas? It is Christ. So make no mistake, when you've got an attack faith, on religious liberty, it is an attack on Christ. So we've got a President that is waging war against the King of King and the Lord of Lords. He's waging a war against Christ and his welcomed presence in the military and in all of our institutions":

Klingenschmitt: Transgender Professor Possessed By A Demonic Spirit

On today's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt discussed a situation where former chair of the theology department at a Christian college was asked to leave after he came out as transgender and began to transition from female to male.

Klingenschmitt, predictably, declared that the professor was possessed by a demonic spirit, but took it a step further by demanding that all the administrators who allowed this professor to teach at this Christian college should be fired.

"All of the theology [department administrators] who allowed this woman to grow into a position of responsibility like that, they ought to be fired too," Klingenschmitt said. "No Christian university ought to allow a demonic spirit to be chair of a theology professor [sic]":

Parenting Advice From Glenn Beck: Push Your Children Against The Wall To Teach Them That Rights Come From God

On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck grew increasingly agitated as he fumed over people who insist that they have fundamental rights but don't realize that such rights come from God.

Warning that if people don't forcefully assert that their rights come from God, then the government can take them away, Beck explained that the Founding Fathers created the Bill of Rights in order to prevent the government from ever infringing on the God-given inalienable rights of the citizens.

Somehow this all culminated in Beck telling his listeners to ask their children where they think their rights come from and "challenge them, get in their face" and "teach them a lesson; push 'em!"

And he meant that literally: "Well, they're going to cry, I'll hurt their feelings. PUSH 'EM!," he screamed, "because if you don't do it now, it's going to be much worse when they're pushed and they're shoved and they're shot. Push them! Teach them! The need to know the truth and they need to be pushed up against the wall once in a while so they know they can defend themselves":
