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:

Beck: Common Core Is Insidious And Pure Evil

Obsessed with an incident from last week in which a parent was arrested for objecting to Common Core at a forum in Maryland, Glenn Beck has now returned his focus to the issue, declaring on his radio program that not only it is turning America into a police state, but also insidious, Satanic, and fundamentally evil.

Claiming that the intent of Common Core is to determine careers for school children by the time they are in middle school, Beck ranted that "it is communism" before warning that "it's insidious and we are not dealing with flesh and bone."

"We are dealing with evil," Beck said. "And there comes a time where you have to just say what it is, and it's evil":

State Sen. Kent Lambert: Colorado's Civil Unions Bill Is A 'Mind-Control Experiment'

Today, Colorado State Senator Kent Lambert appeared in person on the "Pray In Jesus Name" program along with its demon-obsessed, ex-gay exorcist host "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt where Lambert declared that Colorado's civil unions law is an effort to implement "mind-control" and that allowing transgender children to use the proper bathroom is just like "the kind of agendas that the greatest dictators in world history have tried to press in the past."

While discussing the civil unions legislation, Lambert asserted that the law had no exemptions for religious objections, which means that it "completely suppresses basically any ideas; it's a mind-control experiment by the majority party, the Democrats, here in Colorado to force everybody, including children in schools, everything else, under penalty of law, to believe in homosexual marriage."

Later, Lambert declared that allowing transgender children to use the bathroom violates everyone's right to privacy, meaning that "privacy will no longer be in effect in the United States if this agenda continues in the direction that it is right now.  This is certainly Brave New World, the Aldous Huxley novel that Big Brother is here, he's alive and well and we're going to force you into the kind of agendas that some of the greatest dictators in world history have tried to press in the past."

We should point out that "Big Brother" appears in George Orwell's 1984, not Huxley's Brave New World:

Lively: Russia's Anti-Gay Law Is 'One Of The Proudest Achievements Of My Career'

Scott Lively was the guest on Bryan Fischer's radio program yesterday, and while, unfortunately, they did not discuss Lively's theory that President Obama is the Antichrist, they did discuss their mutual admiration for Russia's anti-gay crackdown.

Lively told Fischer that while he did not play a direct role in drafting the legislation, he does believe that a tour he made through Russia a few years back where he urged the implementation of just these sorts of laws served as a catalyst for legislation.

"I indirectly assisted in that," Lively said, "and it's one of the proudest achievements of my career":
