Right Wing Leftovers - 8/5/13

  • Glenn Beck's The Blaze network has opened a Washington, DC bureau and added a correspondent with White House credentials.
  • RNC chairman Reince Priebus is threatening to pull Republican primary debates from CNN and NBC "unless those companies pull their current Hillary Clinton-related film projects."
  • Sen. Ted Cruz doesn't seem to understand how BuzzFeed operates.
  • Bryan Fischer says that, even today, God is raising people from the dead.
  • Apparently, environmentalists are responsible for the deaths of the nineteen firefighters who died fighting a forest fire in Arizona earlier this summer.
  • Finally, John Boehner’s office says that nobody on staff remembers Boehner ever "agreeing" with Rep. Ted Yoho's claim that Obamacare is racist.

Beck: US And Russia Are On The Verge Of World War III

Glenn Beck views all of human history as little more than a series of cycles that continuously repeat, seeing it as his responsibility to understand those cycles and uncover the modern-day recurrences in order to warn all of humanity what is coming down the road.

So when something happens today, it is just like what happened in the past, which means that what happens next will be just like what followed when it happened the last time in exactly the same fashion and on the same timeline.

All of which is a convoluted way of explaining that, according to Beck, we are now on the verge of World War III.

"It's the United States versus Russia," Beck declared on his radio broadcast today. "This is what all of us who are my age grew up worried about. This is it.  It's been a cold war. It's been a proxy war. It's been one where nobody really understands it yet. But I think you're about to.  I think this whole thing in the Middle East is the beginning of the end of the proxy war and the covert war. You're now going to see an openly hot war, I fear, and the beginning of World War III":

Bachmann: Immigration Reform 'Means You Don't Have A Future And A Hope'

Last month, the annual Eagle Forum Collegians Summit took place in Washington, DC where Birther crackpots like Jerome Corsi shared the stage with members of Congress like Michele Bachmann.

Bachmann spent a large part of her speech railing against immigration reform, telling the audience filled with college students that if any legislation passes, their taxes are going to skyrocket, the economy is going to collapse, and their futures are going to be destroyed.

"If you think taxes are high now," Bachmann warned, "get ready! This impacts you.  This means you don't have a job. This means you don't have benefit packages. This means you don't have a future and a hope."

Immigration reform should not be interested in being compassionate to those wishing to come here, she asserted, but rather focused on "America first; it's your life first and we've got to get our house back in order. That's what I'm elected to do: look out for the Americans who voted for me; my job isn't to look out for law-breakers who broke our law to come into the country":

Cruz: A Government Shut Down Is No Big Deal Because It Happens Every Weekend

Tea Party members of Congress like Sen. Ted Cruz are threatening to shut down the federal government in an effort to defund health care reform while, simultaneously, attempting to place the blame for any such shut down on President Obama.

Obviously, pulling that off successfully will require the creation of some pretty ingenious arguments, one of which Cruz tried out last week when he was interviewed on Newsmax TV where he asserted that the term "shut down is a misnomer; what it in fact is is a partial, temporary shut down" where "nonessential government functions are temporarily suspended.

"Now that's inconvenient," Cruz admitted, before adding "but we actually see that every single week on the weekends":

Right Wing Leftovers - 8/2/13

  • Apparently the "ex-gay" rally earlier this week was a "great day for former homosexuals in America," despite the fact that nobody showed up.
  • It looks like Tom McClusky has left the Family Research Council.
  • Is Rep. Trey Gowdy is auditioning to be the craziest Republican member of Congress?
  • According to Jeffrey Kuhner, the fact that President Obama acknowledged the historical fact that Ho Chi Minh was inspired by Thomas Jefferson insulted "the memory of the nearly 60,000 Americans who died in Vietnam" by somehow "granting legitimacy to Vietnam’s odious regime."
  • It seems that if you are against abortion but also an atheist, anti-choice groups will refuse to work with you.
  • Finally, Scott Lively is mad at the Pope for using the phrase "a gay person," instead of "a person who struggles with homosexual temptation" because the former phrase is "a major concession to sexual-orientation theory when used by a church leader about Christians."

Beck: Obama And His Administration Are Sowing The Seeds Of A Race War

One of the great ironies of Glenn Beck's current trajectory is that he spends hours every week warning his audience that certain groups (e.g., progressives, unions, socialists, communists, Muslims, etc...) are working to divide the nation by blaming all of society's problems on other groups in order to implement their radical agenda ... while Beck's entire worldview hinges on the idea that it is these groups who are responsible for everything that is wrong with this nation.

Last night, he dedicated most of his program to laying out "The Anatomy of a Racist," and while he used Adolf Hitler, Louis Farrakhan, and David Duke as his examples, he was really trying to make the case that President Obama is following the same pattern.

On his radio broadcast today, Beck returned to the topic as he asserted that "many in this administration" fit this definition of racists, warning that they have been intentionally sowing the seeds to racial discord and are just waiting for the proper "crisis" to set off a race war:

Adams: Immigration Reform Will Lead To A Biometric Mark Of The Beast

Yesterday, End Times radio host Rick Wiles interviewed Cathie Adams, the former head of the Texas Republican Party and current president of the Texas Eagle Forum, in a wide-ranging discussion which included a warning that immigration reform would lead to biometric scanning which, as everyone knows, is a tool of Satan.

Adams warned that the problem is not just that Hispanics are crossing the border illegally, but so are people from Muslim nations and so if immigration reform passes, we'll be giving amnesty "to people who are not here with the best intentions for America."

After Adams said that the Department for Homeland Security is unable to account for more than a million foreigners who have overstayed their visas, Wiles predicted that immigration reform advocates would call for biometric scanning as a solution to this problem, which Adams declared would be an unmistakable sign of the End Times.

Then, for good measure, Adams returned to the issue of all those sneaky Muslims who are entering the United States as refugees "from Moozlum, Hindu, and Buddhist cultures [who] are not here because they love America but because they are fleeing countries, and yet, what kind of culture are they bringing here? They want sharia law, just like what they left that was causing them to be persecuted."

Because that makes perfect sense:

Adams: We have about 50,000 other than Mexicans who cross our border within one year. Those people that were apprehended were from countries like Indonesia, of course that a just very fierce fighting Islamic government. We have Pakistanis coming across, people from the Philippines, Somalia, Tunisia , Uzbekistan  ... we're going to be giving amnesty not just to poor Mexicans who are looking for jobs but we're giving amnesty, we're giving all of the American privileges to people who are not here with the best intentions for America.

We also have this issue of visas and we've lost, I think the latest nonsense I saw from the Homeland Security Department was something like a million people that have come here on visas that we have no idea where they are.

Wiles: Do you know where they're taking us with this? Because they said the solution to all these lost foreigners in the country, the solution is biometric scanning. That's where they're taking us Cathy.

Adams: I do understand that. I've seen it. I've heard it. And, of course, we know in biblical prophecy that that is the End Times. That is going to be the brand either on our foreheads or on the back of our hands.  That is demonic through and through.  That is End Times prophecy.  There is no question about that.

But, you know, another group of people that are coming into our country as refugees are others that are mostly from Moozlum, Hindu, and Buddhist cultures. There are people who are not here because they love America but because they are fleeing countries, and yet, what kind of culture are they bringing here? They want sharia law, just like what they left that was causing them to be persecuted.

Fischer: Gay Activists Should Support Russia's Anti-Gay Laws In The Name Of Diversity

The results are always interesting when Bryan Fischer thinks that he is being clever, as he was on his radio program yesterday when he spent a few minutes discussing Russia's recent ban on "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors."

The discriminatory legislation has been met with outrage and protests around the world, but Fischer doesn't understand why since liberals and gay activists supposedly believe in diversity and, as such, they ought to be saying "hey, this is great!"

"We've got plenty of room in our multicultural world for all sorts of different cultural values and trends," Fischer mockingly proclaimed. "Isn't this wonderful what Russia is doing. Let's celebrate diversity and let's support this tradition in the nation of Russia":
