The Company That David Barton Keeps

Later this month, a Religious Right gathering is scheduled to take place in Texas called "San Antonio in Black, White, and Brown" which, as the name suggests, is aimed at unifying the White, Black, and Hispanic communities in order to establish a "Biblical worldview" in the city:

David Barton and Harry Jackson will be among the speakers at this event, sharing the stage with several other figures who played high-profile roles in Gov. Rick Perry's Dominionist-dominated "The Response" prayer rally back in 2011, including Doug Stringer and, more interestingly, Alice Patterson of Justice At The Gates.

Patterson not only has deep ties to Perry (so much so that she was welcomed on stage by him during his prayer rally) but has also been working with Barton for years to find ways to convince Black voters to support the Republican Party ... because the Democratic Party is controlled by demons, as we noted when we wrote about her book a few years back:

In fact, Patterson wrote a whole book about it which I have just finished reading called "Bridging the Racial and Political Divide: How Godly Politics Can Transform a Nation" in which mentions how she went to hear Chuck Pierce speak in Louisiana where he preached on "Saul Structures" at which points she realized that the Democratic Party is "an invisible network of evil comprising an unholy structure" that is, quite literally, controlled by demonic forces:

As Chuck described Saul Structures, my thoughts raced to politics. "Oh my God, Chuck is describing the Democratic Party!" This was the first time I'd ever considered that an evil structure could be connected to and empowered by a political party ... One strong fallen angel cannot wreak havoc on an entire nation by himself. He needs a network of wicked forces to restrain the Church and to deceive the masses. Unlike the Holy Spirit, who is everywhere at once and can speak to millions of people simultaneously, the devil can only be in one place at a time. By himself Satan would be totally ineffective, but in cooperation with other powers of darkness he erects structures to deceive and manipulate entire nations ... At the time I was listening to Chuck Pierce in Louisiana, I hadn't given any thought at all to strongholds in political parties. If I had ever thought about it, of course, it would have made sense, but it was new information. As Chuck's words began to sink in, I asked the "Lord, Father, what is the demonic structure behind the Democratic Party?"

Patterson goes on to explain that "the demonic structure behind the Democratic Party" is in fact "the Jezebel structure" which is rooted in long-ago Democratic support for slavery and which remains today because of the party's support for reproductive and gay rights.

Right Wing Leftovers - 2/7/14

  • The New York Times reports that Sen. Pat Roberts has "acknowledged that he did not have a home of his own in Kansas. The house on a country club golf course that he lists as his voting address belongs to two longtime supporters and donors."
  • It is genuinely amazing the way right-wing groups are framing proposed restrictions on 501c4 organizations as an attack on conservatives. Do they not realize that liberals groups have c4 arms as well?
  • Phyllis Schlafly issues a warning: "Once there is no objective morality, no universal good and evil, laws that are not acceptable to Christians, such as abortion, infanticide, easy divorce, redefinition of marriage, and euthanasia can by imposed by the government. Christians should wake up and realize that supremacist judges and public schools have been the main engines driving the replacement of Christian morality with the utilitarianism and secularism of liberalism."
  • The headline says it all: "General: U.S. Christians targeted for murder."
  • Good point, Kevin Fobbs: "Black history month has been about celebration of achievements and it has been about action. So take action and demand Obama’s impeachment now so that you and your family will have a chance to recoup and recapture the American Dream that Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and so many others fought and even died for."

Fischer: I Want Homosexuality To Be Illegal 'Because I Love Black Males'

Today is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, which Bryan Fischer honored on his radio program by reading from a CDC fact sheet noting that "blacks make up only 12% of the U.S. population but had nearly half (44%) of all new HIV infections in the United States in 2010" in order to declare that he wants homosexuality to be illegal because he loves black males.

"This is black genocide," he said.

"Let me put it bluntly," Fischer declared. "If you are for the legalization of homosexuality, you are for the acceptability of homosexuality, you are for the normalization of homosexuality, you do not care about black males. You have no compassion in your black heart for black males because they're being decimated by HIV/AIDS ... So why am I opposed to the normalization of homosexual behavior? Because I love black males. I want black males to live long, prosperous, healthy, disease-free lives":

Beck: 'Technology Is Authoritarian Porn'

Glenn Beck's incessant fear of technology is well-established, as every technological advance is seen by Beck as one step further down the road toward our inevitable dystopian nightmare. And this terror about what developing technology might do to us in the future was the theme of last night's monologue on Beck's television program, where he warned that "technology is authoritarian porn."

In particular, Beck was a bit alarmed by reports that the late Philip Seymour Hoffman would be digitally recreated in order to complete a key scene in The Hunger Games film he was working on when he died.

"There is no death," Beck said. "Is it not a little disturbing?"

"The transition is happening at a rapid pace," Beck warned, and doing so at a time when Americans are becoming dumber while the government is growing larger and more controlling.

"You, your children, and your grandchildren will be at their mercy," Beck warned. "Wake up! Wake up!":

Peterson On Obama: 'I Definitely Am Convinced He Is The Son Of Satan'

Earlier this week, Jesse Lee Peterson appeared on World Ministries International's "Warning" television program where he revealed his belief that President Barack Obama is literally "the son of Satan."

Decrying the fact that a Judeo-Christian nation like America is under the leadership of a liar like Obama, Peterson declared that "I can't say that he is Satan, but I definitely am convinced he is the son of Satan."

When the host, Jonathan Hansen, asked Peterson if he believed that Obama was "a stereotype of the Antichrist," Peterson took it a step further, asserting that Obama might actually be the Antichrist.

"I've never seen anyone convince or seduce a nation," Peterson said, "in the way that I've seen Obama seduce America within the last five years now."

If Obama is not the Antichrist, Peterson said, he is, at most, "one step away" from being the Antichrist:

Right Wing Round-Up - 2/6/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 2/6/14

  • Gary Bauer is not happy that AT&T had condemned Russia anti-gay crackdown: "[W]hen I worked in the Reagan White House, I don't recall AT&T or other major corporations condemning the Soviet Union while Jews and political dissenters rotted in Siberian gulags. Sadly, while Ronald Reagan worked to rebuild pride in America and America's standing in the world, many corporate elites were eager to trade and "coexist" with the Soviets. And today most big corporations don't feel a need to condemn Christian persecution and human rights violations. Why does concern for homosexual rights trump all other issues? I smell a double standard."
  • Michele Bachmann will speak at an Eagle Forum luncheon next month.
  • Beware! The Girl Scouts have been infiltrated by liberal groups “specifically so they can first corrupt them, and then coerce them to put their agenda forward on the unsuspecting people that they serve.”
  • FRC prays against the IRS: "May God intervene to awaken the people and end what must be seen as plans to empower the IRS to permanently tyrannize the American people!"
  • Liberty Counsel has taken its battle on behalf of "ex-gay" therapy to the Supreme Court.
  • Finally, some times you just have to shake your head at the things that David Barton says on his radio show, such as this: "This is one of the things that liberals have done to us in recent years is make us think that everybody is inherently good and therefore if an accident happens with guns, it can't be the individual's fault who walked into the theater and shot everybody, it's got to be the gun's fault because people are inherently good."

Beck Ties Together The White House, The Boycott Of Israel, And The Coming Internment Of Jews

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Glenn Beck warned that conservatives who don't believe in climate change or abortion rights or support Obamacare might soon be rounded up and forced into internment camps. This was a theme he returned to on his television program last night, stepping it up a notch by delivering a typically Beckian lesson, complete with chalkboard, on how the effort to boycott Israel is being orchestrated directly from the White House and will result in Jews in America being forced into internment camps.

The way Beck sees it, the movement to boycott Israel is being run by the Obama Administration in order to pressure Israel into making concessions in the name of peace which, when Israel refuses, will justify the next violent Palestinian uprising. Once that breaks out, then all the groups responsible for the boycott in the first place - including Oxfam, George Soros, the Tides Foundation, Samantha Power, Teresa Heinz Kerry, and the White House - will call for an international military force to invade Israel and enforce peace under the Responsibility to Protect doctrine.

And when that happens, Jews and supporters of Israel in America who oppose such military action will be rounded up and forced into internment camps.

At least that is the best explanation that we can come up with because, like all of Beck's conspiracy theories, this one is so flimsy and convoluted and illogical that it defies comprehension.

If you want to watch Beck spend nearly fifteen minutes laying this all out, you can do so here

Or you can just watch our video of Beck attempting to explain his bizarre theory to his bored-looking staff during his morning meeting:

Schlafly: 'Anything That Obama Is For, I Think The Conservatives Should Be Against'

As Miranda noted the other day, Phyllis Schlafly "has never been very good at hiding partisan motivation for right-wing policy," frequently coming right out and admitting the petty, partisan motivations behind the supposedly "principled" stands that conservatives inevitably take in opposing things supported by Democrats or President Obama.

And this was a trend she continued when she appeared on Newsmax yesterday to discuss her new report warning that immigration reform legislation will doom the Republican Party when she declared that conservatives ought to oppose such legislation simply because President Obama supports it.

While conservatives and Republicans are out there laughably claiming that they want to work for President Obama but are constantly having their bipartisan efforts rejected by the administration, Schlafly openly states that conservatives ought to just flatly oppose anything that Obama supports.

"If they like it," she said, "it's certainly not going to be good for the conservative movement or for the grassroots or for the Republican Party ... Anything that Obama is for, I think the conservatives should be against":
