Bryan Fischer Is Not A Fan Of Burger King's Proud Whopper

As Miranda noted the other day, anti-gay activists were not happy with the news that Burger King is planning to sell an LGBT pride themed burger at one San Francisco location.  On today's radio program, Bryan Fischer said that the American Family Association is thinking about issuing an "action alert" about it out of concern that "if this isn't bottled up in San Francisco, this kind of nonsense, then it's going to be spreading across the entire fruited plain and you're going to be going to your Burger King in Des Moines, Iowa and you're going to have a rainbow color wrapper for your Whopper."

On top of that, Fischer just thinks the entire thing is a disastrous marketing idea because "when people sit down to eat a hamburger, the last thing they want to be thinking about is two guys having sex":

Glenn Beck Insists That David Barton Is 'An Amazing Uniter'

It came as no surprise that following Bob Barr's recent attack on David Barton during a Republican primary debate, Glenn Beck spent several segments on his radio program today defending Barton, even bringing Barton onto the show so that he could blame the attacks on "a bunch of George Soros-funded bloggers and groups."

Before Barton called into the program, Beck likened the attacks on him to Malcolm X's attacks on Martin Luther King, insisting that Barton "is an amazing man, an amazing uniter ... David is an amazing, decent, honorable, loving, non-bigoted man."

"I've met bigots before in my life," Beck said, "David Barton is the farthest thing from it":

Indeed, where would anyone ever get the idea that David Barton is some sort of bigot?

Bob Barr Challenges Barry Loudermilk To Disavow David Barton's Endorsement

Georgia State Senator Barry Loudermilk is currently seeking the Republican Party's nomination for a seat in Congress and has been touting the endorsement he received from "nationally recognized author, historian and constitutional expert David Barton."

Loudermilk's admiration of Barton is no secret, given that he mindlessly repeats Barton's lies in his own presentations, but now it seems that it is becoming an issue in his campaign as he was asked to repudiate Barton's endorsement earlier this week during a debate with his GOP primary opponent, former Congressman Bob Barr.

A clip from the debate was posted on YouTube by Bartowpolitics showing Barr noting that Loudermilk has very proudly accepted Barton's endorsement despite the fact, Barr said, that Barton "has been roundly and uniformly criticized with facts for taking positions that are anti-Semitic [and] that are against women voting."

Barr asked Loudermilk to disavow Barton's endorsement, but Loudermilk refused to do so, saying that he had no idea where Barr was getting his information and saying that Barton "had done a tremendous job of reintroducing Americans to their true heritage ... so, no, I'm not going to stand out here and disavow an endorsement of somebody that I believe has done a tremendous job in reintroducing Americans to their true heritage":

The allegation that Barton spoke to anti-Semitic groups stems back over twenty years and Barton has consistently insisted that he was not aware of the views of some of the groups that he addressed. 

As for the claim that Barton is "against women voting," that comes from an ironically Bartonesque misrepresentation of a radio program he did earlier this year when he asserted that the Founding Fathers did not grant women the right to vote in order "to keep the family together."

We have listened to literally thousands of hours of Barton's programs and presentations and he can be justifiably criticized for a lot of things (most notably, being a serial liar), but being anti-Semitic and against women voting should not be among them.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/10/14

  • Todd Starnes says that "under this administration, the government believes they are church and President Obama is the deity."
  • Bryan Fischer says that Ann Coulter is "the Manchurian Columnist."
  • Laurie Higgins argues that if opposition to homosexuality is akin to racism "then cultural disapproval of polyamory, zoophilia, and scores of other paraphilias is wrong and akin to racism."
  • The Lord says, "I am already invading Hollywood far beyond what you can imagine."
  • Matt Barber asserts that the fact that support for ENDA is dropping over religious exemptions is proof "that what this is really all about is criminalizing Christianity and doing away with freedom of religion."
  • Finally, Scott Lively is running for governor in Massachusetts and his transportation plan is exactly as crazy as you'd expect: "Overcrowding in Mass. cities is a direct consequence of the globalist United Nations Agenda 21 project, which has been using land use policies and financial incentives to push humans out of the rural areas into the cities since 1992. Massachusetts has bought into Agenda 21 in a major way, though most citizens have never heard of it. I would reverse the Agenda 21 process and work to restore the model of environmentally-conscious self-sufficient agrarian farm-communities which New England was once known for, and which offer a substantially better and healthier way of life. This would alleviate the stress of overcrowding in the cities and restore struggling rural economies at the same time."

Steve King Calls For The National Guard To Seal The Border Before America Is Overrun By Billions Of Undocumented Immigrants

Appearing on Steve Malzberg's Newsmax radio program yesterday, Rep. Steve King called upon the governors of the states along the southern border to call out their national guard units and seal the border because otherwise America will be overrun with billions of undocumented immigrants by the time President Obama leaves office.

Saying that since Obama has the resources necessary to close the border but is refusing to do so, King therefore urged border governors to call up their National Guard units and do it themselves because soon "it won't be any longer a question of whether we can deport eleven million people; it will be tens of millions more and the question will be how many billion people can we let into the United States?"

"And I say that term 'billion,' I didn't just pull it out of the air," King made clear, "there's seven billion people on the planet and over half of them would like to be in America":

Barber: Parents Should Think Twice About Letting Their Kids Attend Christian Colleges That Allow Gay Clubs

Matt Barber appeared on Janet Mefferd's radio program yesterday in order to discuss a recent article in Politico Magazine entitled "Evangelicals Are Changing Their Minds on Gay Marriage" which both he and Mefferd, of course, dismissed as nothing but pro-gay liberal propaganda.

During the course of the discussion, Mefferd asked Barber what he thinks about the fact that gay groups are being allowed to form at some Christian universities, with Barber replying that parents ought to think twice before allowing their kids to attend such a school because they'd certainly never let them attend a school that allowed "a pedophilia-affirming club or an incest-affirming club" to form on campus.

"I would just ask parents to do a test," Barber said. "Replace LGBT or gay with any other sexual sin. If there's an adultery-affirming club at your potential university where you're sending your kids. Or a pedophilia-affirming club or an incest-affirming club. Well, homosexuality is among all of the sins, the sexual sins that are clearly itemized throughout Scripture in both the Old and New Testament. But for some reason, the propaganda has stuck and it's this particular sexual sin that gets special treatment":

Louie Gohmert Proves That God Exists

Rep. Louie Gohmert was among the speakers at last night's "Celebrate America" event, the three week long revival effort organized by "holy laughter" pioneer Rodney Howard-Browne, where he proved once and for all that God exists because "you couldn't get everything unless there was something that was the creator of everything."

Quoting an old friend from back in Texas, Gohmert said that he feels sorry for atheists because regardless of how smart they think they are, they have to admit that they believe "the equation that nobody plus nothing equals everything."

"How embarrassing for an intellectual to have to say 'yeah, I believe that,'" Gohmert said. "Nobody plus nothing equals everything."

"Well, you couldn't get everything unless there was something that was the creator of everything," Gohmert wisely concluded, "and that's the Lord we know":

  • What a surprise, people have had enough of Sarah Palin.
  • Frank Gaffney says that Richard Mellon Scaife was "a founding father in his own right."
  • What a surprise, Tim LaHaye, who made a fortune writing about the End Times, thinks people don't study the Book of Revelation enough .... so he wrote another book about it!
  • Sen. Rob Portman "is confident that his position on gay marriage has not crippled his ability to be a national candidate." Good luck winning the GOP presidential primary with that position.
  • Finally, "life is a lot simpler when you’re a liberal": "For one thing, you don’t have to be bothered by silly things like facts; you can just make up your narrative as you go along and, thanks to our abysmal public education system, most people will never know that you lied through your teeth. You also don’t have to worry about understanding many complex issues, and how to respond to criticism of your position on those issues. Being a liberal, you’re wrong on pretty much everything anyway, so there’s no need to waste your time trying to articulate a factual, intelligent response.
