Right Wing Leftovers - 9/26/13

  • Glenn Beck's participation in the upcoming Values Voter Summit has been confirmed.
  • FRC prays, yet again, that God will stop Obamacare.
  • Cindy Jacobs has committed herself to "do whatever I could to stop" human trafficking, so she decided to "mobilize twenty-one days of powerful spiritual warfare!"
  • Peter LaBarbera is honoring the anniversary of the 1999 death of 13-year-old Jesse Dirkhising in order to "shine light on the perversion of homosexuality."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer prays for Ted Cruz.

Barton: Second Amendment Guarantees An Individual Right To Own A Tank Or Fighter Jet

Today on "WallBuilders Live," David Barton doubled down on his assertion that there are literally no limits on the Second Amendment, declaring that individuals not only have an inalienable right to possess guns, but also tanks, rocket launchers, fighter jets, and anything else they can get their hands on; including, presumably, even nuclear bombs:

The belief of the Second Amendment was you as a citizen have a right to defend yourself whether it be against a thug, an aggressor, a crook, or against your government.

Now this is where a lot of liberals go through the roof; are you saying that you think individual citizens have a right to own a machine gun?

Yeah.  And an Abrams Tank, and a bazooka, and a F-16 because you've got a right to defend yourself with the same size of weapons that might be brought against you ... You have a right to fight back with whatever you can get your hands on to defend your life, your property, your possession, your family, your whatever.

Boykin & Joyner Discuss Syria, Biblical Prophecy, And The End Times

Rick Joyner and Jerry Boykin are both encouraged but also concerned about the situation in Syria ... primarily because of what it might signal about the End Times.

Joyner is encouraged because he sees Biblical signs of the End Times everywhere he looks, which means Christians should be growing excited because the Day of Redemption is near.  But one Biblical prophecy that has not yet been fulfilled is Isaiah 17's promise that the city of Damascus will be destroyed and this prophecy, said Joyner, "has to be fulfilled before this age can end."

For his part, Boykin envisions a scenario in which the Free Syrian Army gains control of Damascus, prompting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to decide to unload every last one of his chemical weapons on the city, destroying it, killing all its inhabitants, and rendering it uninhabitable and thereby fulfilling this Biblical prophecy:

Right Wing Leftovers - 9/25/13

  • Tony Perkins vaguely threatens legal action against the Southern Poverty Law Center.
  • Speaking of Perkins, Gov. Bobby Jindal has appointed him to the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement.
  • Peter LaBarbera warns that "when you have boys being awarded and elected 'Homecoming Queen,' you are a society in big trouble."
  • It has gotten to the point where Glenn Beck is now reading excerpts from books like "Fahrenheit 451" on the air.
  • Finally, Jan Markell warns that Somali immigrants in Minnesota will carry out a Kenya-style attack on the Mall of America: "The liberal, twisted mind here in Minnesota cannot possibly conceive of some of these people as being evil ... But I and many other conservatives here in Minnesota are very concerned that this Mall of America is going to be targeted eventually – and the casualties could be astronomical."

Bryan Fischer Hails Ted Cruz As A Modern Day Elijah The Prophet

Bryan Fischer was so enraptured by Sen. Ted Cruz's self-aggrandizing faux filibuster against Obamacare that he is now literally comparing him to the Prophet Elijah.

Citing 1 Kings 18, where Elijah engaged in a showdown against the prophets of Baal, Fischer declared that "our Elijah today, confronting the prophets of Baal, is Ted Cruz and last night was his showdown on Mount Carmel."

Just like Elijah, who stood there "all day to defend the truth, to defend God, to stand for what is right," Fischer said, "last night was Ted Cruz's Elijah moment":

Fortunately for the other members of the Senate, Cruz didn't take his "Elijah moment" all the way to its Biblical conclusion:

And Elijah said to them, “Seize the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape.” And they seized them. And Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon and slaughtered them there.

Glenn Beck's Ideal Government

Near the end of his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck began to promote the prospect of Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert launching a primary challenge against Republican Senator John Cornyn, resulting in a delegation to the US Senate that would consist of "a couple of ass-kickers" in Gohmert and Ted Cruz.

The idea so enthralled Beck that he began laying out his fantasy government of the future, consisting of Cruz as President, Rand Paul as Vice President, Ron Paul as Treasury Secretary, and Gohmert as Secretary of State.

When co-host Pat Gray pointed out that if Cruz and Gohmert were both serving in the administration, Texas would need two new senators, Beck suggested that he and Gray could fill those positions, which prompted co-host Stu Burguiere to declare that there is no way he'd ever vote for Beck.

"You're a loose cannon," Burguiere said. "I don't trust this guy at all":

LaBarbera: 'It's Almost As If Homosexual Sodomy Was Created To Spread Disease'

Peter LaBarbera closed out his week co-hosting Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program with Matt Barber pretty much exactly as you would expect, continuing his attacks on gays and railing against the "sin of Sodom."

Saying that gay activists desperately "want approval for their lifestyle," LaBarbera was outraged that they are now using the government to "encourage and celebrate sin," so much so that "now they want to attach the sin of Sodom to marriage."

Approvingly quoting another anti-gay activist, LaBarbera declared that "it's almost as if homosexual sodomy was created to spread disease; that's how dangerous and unnatural this lifestyle is."

"When a nation embraces such confusion and such evil," LaBarbera warned, "it is on a moral decline":

Right Wing Leftovers - 9/24/13

  • Doesn't it seem a little ironic that Liberty University thrives in large part due to the $775 million a year it takes in through federal student loans and grants?
  • Self-aggrandizing Religious Right activist Patrick J. Mahoney is heading to Turkey on an "historic mission" to "attempt to secure a meeting in Tehran with President Rouhani and Iranian government leaders to discuss Pastor Saeed."
  • The American Renewal Project declares: "Unless politicians see scalps on the wall, they will never respect our policies, marches, sermons or prayer rallies. Registering people to vote prepares the constituency to move to the voting booth, and remove politicians who have a tin ear to Christian values and no appreciation for God-given rights. David Lane, founder of the American Renewal Project is catching the attention of those who are afraid that the movement is on the right track, and intend to stop him."
  • Even the Wall Street Journal doesn't like Ted Cruz.
  • Finally, Steve Lonegan had made yet another appearance on Bryan Fischer's radio program:
