Phil Robertson Preaches To CPAC: STDs Are 'The Revenge Of The Hippies'

For some reason, organizer's of this year's CPAC conference decided to bestow a First Amendment award upon "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson, apparently for no other reason than because he came under intense criticism for a series of offensive comments that he made about gays and African Americans and for which he refused to apologize.

Going well beyond his allotted time, Robertson treated the audience at CPAC to a rambling sermon about America's desperate need for God, which he illustrated in a variety of ways including, at one point, by railing about STDs.

"One hundred and ten million Americans now have a sexually transmitted illness," Robertson sighed. "There is a penalty to be paid for what the beatniks, who morphed into the hippies [did]. You say what do you call the hundred and ten million people who have sexually transmitted illnesses? It's the revenge of the hippies! Sex drugs and rock and roll have come back to haunt us."

The solution, of course, is one man and one woman marriage, Robertson said, as he thundered that the reason he is telling people this is "because I'm trying to help you, for crying out loud, America!"

How President Trump Will Defeat ISIS: 'Hit Them So Hard And So Fast That They Wouldn't Know What Happened'

Nothing better exemplifies the state of today's Republican Party than the fact that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus's speech at CPAC today was immediately followed by a speech from reality TV star Donald Trump, who shared his deeply thought-out plans for saving America when he is elected president.

In addition to "taking back jobs from China" and "making America rich again," Trump revealed his very serious solution for dealing with ISIS: "Hit them so hard and so fast that they wouldn't know what happened."

"Nobody, if I decide to run and win," said Trump, "nobody would be tougher [on ISIS] than Donald Trump. Nobody."

Trump said he would find some amazing general in the military and put them in charge with instructions that "you gotta hit 'em hard, you gotta hit 'em firm and you can't play games. You gotta go hard and fast and firm":

Brent Bozell Warns CPAC That Tyranny, Cultural Fascism, And The Stasi Are Here

The Media Research Center's Brent Bozell spoke at CPAC this morning, where he let loose with a speech that was little more than an endless stream of right-wing misrepresentations, falsehoods, fabrications, and outright paranoia about how left-wing tyranny and fascism are destroying America and persecuting people like Rush Limbaugh and Phil Robertson.

For nearly 20 minutes, Bozell ran through a litany of right-wing outrages and supposed scandals as he declared that "something terrible is happening to our country [as] the radical left now controls most levers of political and cultural power and is using both in a relentless campaign to destroy the last vestiges of freedom in America."

"Tyranny is knocking at our door," he warned, before declaring that the left "will do anything, using any means at their disposal, legal or otherwise" to strip conservatives of their freedom of speech and saying that the government isn't "all that different from the East German Stasi."

"Cultural fascism has arrived in America," Bozell said. "Let us understand this soberly and unequivocally":

Sabo At CPAC: 'Shepard Fairey And Banksy Are In The South Of France Circle-Jerking Each Other'

Nothing says rebel outsider quite like speaking at the annual gathering of conservative D.C. insiders that is CPAC, but that is exactly what conservative street artist Sabo did today when he spoke at one of the afternoon break-out sessions and stated that conservatives are today's rebels.

Sabo bragged that he kicked Wendy Davis' "bigwig Hollywood donors right square in the nuts" with his infamous "Abortion Barbie" posters and then bravely called Gwyneth Paltrow "such a tool" because of her response to his "Obama Drone" pieces.

For good measure, he then closed out his remarks by declaring that "Shepard Fairey and Banksy are in the south of France circle-jerking each other with the money they make selling anti-capitalism art."

"They are now the establishment artists," he said. "We are the rebellion. I ask that you join us. I ask that you support us. My name is Sabo":

Glenn Beck Blasts The 'Morons' And 'Useful Idiots' Who Support Net Neutrality

Almost from the very beginning of the debate over net neutrality, Glenn Beck has vehemently opposed it, mostly because he has no idea what he is talking about, even warning that America "deserves to be destroyed" if the FCC implements regulations designed to ensure open access.

Today, the FCC approved those regulations and Beck is predictably livid, fuming on his radio program today that the people who supported net neutrality are nothing but "morons" and "useful idiots."

"You morons! You useful idiots! That's all you are. You're a useful idiot. Read Joe Stalin. You moron!" Beck bellowed. "You know why it's happening? It's happening because our elite institutions, our education, our higher learning ... bullcrap, not even our higher learning, our entire educational system has failed us and they are churning out morons!"

Klingenschmitt: Florist 'Blessing' Gay Couple By Discriminating Against Them

Last week, Gordon Klingenschmitt declared that the owners of a Colorado bakery who refused to provide a wedding cake to a gay couple were really "blessing" the gay couple by letting them know that homosexuality is a sin. On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today, the Colorado Republican state representative heaped similar praise upon a Washington florist who likewise refused to provide flowers to a gay wedding for supposedly also "blessing" the gay couple against whom she discriminated by trying to save them from Hell.

Calling the florist a prophetic "hero," Klingenschmitt said that while she is being persecuted for standing for the truth here on earth, she will receive a reward for her courage in Heaven for her effort to save this gay couple from damnation.

"There will be a day when, after they've lived their life of pleasure and sin and after they have manifested all kinds of demonic spirits ... that they will be held accountable before God," Klingenschmitt warned. "And some day when they're standing before God, God will ask them, 'Didn't you know this was wrong?' And they'll have to admit that, yes, this gentle Christian woman told us it was wrong":

Like MLK, Mia Love Refuses To Fit Into Society's Mold!

Rep. Mia Love of Utah participated in a panel discussion at CPAC this morning on how the conservative movement can better engage young people, which is something for which Love thinks she is particularly well-suited because, as a black conservative, she refuses "to fit this mold that society says I need to fit into" ... just like Martin Luther King, Jr.

Love said that she had recently been invited to speak to black students at the University of Chicago where someone told her that it "makes no sense" how she "can be a black, female from Utah, LDS, Republican, living in today’s America."

The congresswoman said that just as King defied society's racist laws against African Americans, she is bravely standing up against the mold as a black conservative politician. 

"Imagine if people like Martin Luther King decided to [accept] that government said he was a second-class citizen," Love said. "We wouldn't be here today":

Right Wing Round-Up - 2/25/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 2/25/15

  • Steve Deace talked to Jesus and "Jesus made it quite clear that President Obama is not a Christian."
  • Donald Trump is so serious about pretending to run for president that he claims to have begun hiring campaign staff.
  • Glenn Beck predictably used the guilty verdict in the Chris Kyle murder case as an opportunity to fume at President Obama.
  • E.W. Jackson has reportedly been told that he cannot use the auditorium in the Capitol Visitors Center for his racial reconciliation conference, so presumably this will blow up into a full-blown Religious Right crusade in the coming days.
  • Finally, Jennifer LeClaire is upset that Larry King apparently doesn't believe in God: "King is 81 years old. He wants his body frozen—not burned—when he dies. It's sadly ironic given the fate of those who reject Christ. Let's pray that God will reach him before it's too late."

Garlow: The Purpose Of Government Is To Function As 'A Minister Of God'

Jim Garlow was a guest on Bryan Fischer's "Focal Point" radio program today to promote the upcoming "Future Conference" that Garlow will be hosting at his San Diego church. During the course of the conversation, the two men began discussing the effort being led by radical Christian nationalist David Lane to recruit 1,000 pastors to run for political office, which Garlow proclaimed was an absolute necessity because the true purpose of government is to function as "a minister of God."

"If you live in a constitutional republic or a democracy, as we do," Garlow said, "that means it behooves us as followers of Christ to make sure our government functions for the purpose for which it was created, specifically to be the minister of God.... We are in a constitutional republic where we the people determine what our government is and so consequently, as followers of Christ, we're commanded to be involved and to make sure the government functions as a minister of God":
