Right Wing Leftovers - 1/15/14

  • Rick Green wishes Congress would impeach President Obama: "I realize the liberal Harry Reid Senate would never convict him on impeachment charges. But as long as Congress sanctions his actions through silence, we slide further and further down the road to the very tyranny we declared independence from nearly 237 years ago."
  • FRC declares that "as the American people are given time to experience the actual consequences of redefining marriage, we are seeing the public debate and opposition to the redefinition of natural marriage intensify."
  • Gee, we can't imagine why "Coach" Dave Daubenmire has repeatedly been fired from his position as a football coach.
  • This is what passes for news on Bryan Fischer's radio program: an interview with a guy who claims to have been arrested several times as the victim of harassment by gay people.
  • Finally, Glenn Beck explains that people have a natural right to defend themselves because bears do.

Beck: Obamacare Is A Violation Of The Separation Of Church And State

Shortly before issuing his warning that, in the future, Christians will be hunted down and oppressed by gay activists, Glenn Beck explained, as only he can, that Obamacare is a religion and therefore a violation of the separation of church and state.

As Beck sees it, mandating that citizens purchase health insurance is essentially requiring "tithing to their church; the church of man, the church of Washington, DC."

"They are making you pay tithing," Beck said, "and bow down to that God and if not, you are an illegal citizens. That is what they were talking about with the separation of church and state. You are not forced into any man's belief. That's the difference. And here we have a group of people, these fascists - let's start calling these progressives what they are: they are fascists":

Beck Warns That, Sixty Five Years From Now, Gay Activists Will Be Arresting Christians

Glenn Beck had a truly amazing segment on his radio broadcast today in which he played a fifty five year old audio clip of some district attorney in Florida sternly warning an audience of young people not to engage in homosexuality because they would be found out and arrested.

After playing the clip, Beck asserted that the man featured in the clip was "a monster" and that nobody today would ever dream of saying anything like that.

Oh really? Maybe Beck ought to take a look around our archives featuring post after post of contemporary Religious Right leaders calling for homosexuality to be criminalized in America and praising foreign governments for implementing draconian anti-gay laws in their countries. Heck, even Beck's best friend David Barton has said that homosexuality should be illegal and regulated by the government.

Most ironic of all is the fact that Beck said this while wearing a hat in memory of his good friend Ken Hutcherson, who recently passed away, who was probably best knows for being a vehemently anti-gay activist who once called for a ban the promotion of homosexuality.

But then Beck took a step further and warned that if America continues on its current course, sixty five years from now it will be progressives and gay activists who will be delivering statements like this to Christians, vowing to track them down wherever they are and toss them in prison:

Klingenschmitt: NYT's David Kirkpatrick Will Go To Hell With al Qaeda For His 'False' Benghazi Report

Several weeks ago, The New York Times' David Kirkpatrick produced a long report on the 2012 attack on Benghazi that largely debunked many of the right-wing talking points about the tragedy. Among Kirkpatrick's findings was that al Qaeda played no role in the attack, but "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt is not buying that at all, insisting on today's "Pray In Jesus Name" program that any Muslim who refuses to denounce passages in the Quran calling for infidels to be killed is "part of al Qaeda."

"If you're a follower of this false prophet [Muhammad] who tells you to go and kill other people the way [Osama] bin Laden did," Klingenschmitt said, "you are part of al Qaeda because you're following these extremist verses."

Klingenschmitt then went on to declare that "the spirit of lying" was inside of Kirkpatrick for having written this "false" report which means that, according to the Bible, Kirkpatrick is doomed to Hell.

"So al Qaeda and Mr. Kirkpatrick, you will have eternity together to look forward to":

Fischer: Only Property Owners Should Be Eligible To Vote

On his radio show yesterday, Bryan Fischer called for ending Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, as well as the elimination of the minimum wage ... all in order to help the poor and those struggling to make ends meet, of course.

So logically this discussion resulted in Fischer eventually calling for a return to an electoral system in which only people who own property can vote.

"You know, back in the day, in the colonial period," Fischer said, "you had to be a landowner, a property owner to be eligible to vote and I don't think that's a bad idea. And the reason is very simple: if somebody owns property in a community, they're invested in the community. If they're renters, they're going to be up and gone; they could leave the next day ... [P]eople that are not property owners - it's like people that pay no taxes, they have no skin in the game. They don't care about the same things that somebody does who is rooted in the community":

Right Wing Round-Up - 1/14/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 1/14/14

  • When you think "Blue Collar Conservative," only one name comes to mind: Rick Santorum.
  • Gordon Klingenschmitt interviews Bob Adelmann, who thinks that opposition to fracking is part of an effort to create a One World Government.
  • Good point, Allen West: "This is my clear and succinct message to white Americans. How long will it be before “you people” realize you have elevated someone to the office of president who abjectly despises you — not to mention his henchman Holder. Combined they are the most vile and disgusting racists — not you."
  • Bryan Fischer says the key to ending any push for amnesty is to "dismantle the welfare state and eliminate the minimum wage."
  • Finally, this is an actual paragraph from an actual article in The Washington Times blaming President Obama for income inequality: "As President Obama prepares to lay out an economic agenda to address this disappointing state of affairs in his State of the Union address this month, his inability to stem long-term trends toward inequality are giving congressional Republicans little incentive to work with him as they push their recently developed agenda against poverty."

We Are More Than Happy To Help Bryan Fischer Get His Message Out

Frequently, when we grab a clip of some Religious Right figure saying something outrageous that ends of generating some unwanted attention, the person featured in the clip responds by alleging that we took their remarks "out of context" and misrepresented their views (of course, they never actually explain how we supposedly misrepresented their views or what exactly the context was in which they said it that would make it not seem totally crazy.)

So it is always nice when Bryan Fischer sticks up for us by acknowledging that the clips we post feature him saying things exactly as he would present them himself.  And he did it again today while appearing on David Pakman's radio program when Pakman asked Fischer right at the beginning if he, like Gordon Klingenschmitt, objected to the manner in which we feature clips from his show on this blog.

Though he accused us of "cyberstalking" him, he also said that our clips are "exactly the same one that I would have picked if it had been up to me" and are helping him get his message out:

When I look at the clips that RightWingWatch has chosen to use from my program, I'll go there, I'll view the clips, I'll see what they have picked to post and in every case so far, they have picked a clip that would be exactly the same one that I would have picked if it had been up to me. So RightWingWatch is simply helping me to get my message out ... I know that RightWingWatch is cyberstalking me, but from my vantage point, there actually helping me get my message out and frequently what I will do, David, is I will send a tweet out to the link of RightWingWatch's coverage of my program because I like the clip that they picked and I will thank them, give them credit, for helping me get my message out.

Beck And Crew Have A Good Laugh Over The Absurd Idea That People Should Know Who Malala Yousafzai Is

On the radio program this morning, Glenn Beck and co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere were discussing a story on The Blaze about people who are angry that Margaret Thatcher was included in a Microsoft commercial "Celebrating the Heroic Women of 2013."

Gray responded that he was outraged that someone like Thatcher, who is "one of the greatest women of the past century," was featured along side someone like Malala Yousafzai.

"I've never heard of Malala Yousafzai," Gray said, sneeringly. "Who is that?"

Neither Beck nor Burguiere really seemed to have any idea who she was either, as the best that they could come up with was that she was some Pakistani "activist for schools" and that there was some tragedy  ... or something.

Gray was not impressed, saying sarcastically "that's a cause we've all been screaming about for how long."

That eventually prompted Burguiere to jokingly mock Gray for being "so stupid" that he didn't know who Malala Yousafzai is as they all laughed and laughed over the idea that it even mattered:

Yousafzai is, of course, the young woman who was shot in the head by the Taliban back in 2012 over her activism on behalf of the rights of women and education and has since become a global icon for human rights.

But why would three grown men holding jobs requiring them spend hours a day talking about politics and international affairs on a national broadcast be expected to know anything at all about something as insignificant as that?

Beck Foresees A Dire Google/Attack Of The Clones/Terminator Future

It is no secret that Glenn Beck is terrified by the future of technology and especially the inevitable rise of Terminator-like machines which is probably only a few years away.

Beck's terror is only growing more acute amid reports that Google is buying up robotics companies because that, coupled with the supposed systematic efforts to remove Christianity from the military, has him convinced that the world is hurtling toward an Attack-of-the-Clones-like nightmare:
