Right Wing Round-Up - 5/27/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/27/14

  • Allen West just so happened to be seated next to someone on a plane who knew the "ground truth" about what really happened in Benghazi and he told him all about it!
  • Whenever something that the Religious Right supports gets banned from Facebook for violating hate speech standards, they throw a fit and scream "persecution."
  • Todd Starnes is unafraid to ask the hard questions: "Does Google Hate America?"
  • Michael Peroutka donated a dinosaur skeleton worth over a million dollars to the Creation Museum.
  • Finally, "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson will address the Republican Leadership Conference on Thursday, presumably because the GOP is intent on constantly solidifying its reputation as the party of choice for people who don't like gays.

Starnes: 'I Feel Like Washington D.C. Is Twerking On All Of Us'

The only thing more painful than reading Todd Starnes' dreadfully unfunny book is listening to him recite "jokes" from it, as he did last week while hosting a panel on religious persecution at the Watchmen on the Wall conference.

Starnes, who always goes to great lengths to assure his audience that he remains a Southerner at heart despite the fact that he lives in the Park Slope neighborhood of New York City, told the gathering of pastors that the idea for this new book, "God Less America," came to him one day while sitting at brunch in Brooklyn when he realized that he is "a Duck Dynasty guy living in a Miley Cyrus world and I feel like Washington D.C. is twerking on all of us":

Glenn Beck Reads Elliot Rodger's Manifesto: 'That Is Almost An Exact Quote From Teddy Roosevelt'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck weighed in on the murder spree carried out by Elliot Rodger last week though which he vowed to "punish all females for the crime of depriving me of sex.”

As usual, Beck placed the blame squarely on Hollywood and video games ... and progressives like Teddy Roosevelt.

Reading portions of Rodger's "manifesto" in which he declared that women "should not have the right to choose who to mate and breed with" and should all be placed in concentration camps, Beck proclaimed that "that is almost an exact quote from Teddy Roosevelt."

"It's all the progressives, communists, fascists," Beck said. "They're the ones who talk like this ... No small government person talks like this, no constitutionalist talks like this."

After co-host Pat Gray reminded Beck that it was the progressives who actually locked Americans up in concentration camps before, Beck declared that it was no coincidence that Rodger's father was involved with the film "Divergent," which is "a story about concentration camps":

For the record, Rodger's father had nothing to do with "Divergent"; he was actually second unit director on "The Hunger Games," which had nothing to do with concentration camps.

Joe The Plumber: 'Your Dead Kids Don’t Trump My Constitutional Rights'

As we noted last week, Matt Barber's new BarbWire website has quickly become a blogging goldmine for us, as its mission seems to be to collect crazy pieces from all over the internet and publish them all in one place, such as this open letter written by Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (aka Joe The Plumber) to the families of those who were killed during Friday night's shooting spree in Isla Vista, California to inform them that while he is "sorry you lost your child ... your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights" to own as many guns as he wants, especially because of the actions of one insane "Obama voter":

I am sorry you lost your child. I myself have a son and daughter and the one thing I never want to go through, is what you are going through now. But:

As harsh as this sounds – your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.

Richard Martinez, whose son (Christopher) was among the murdered, choked back tears at a news conference, blaming politicians the next day: “The talk about gun rights. What about Chris’ right to live?” Martinez said – and much more.

There are no critical words for a grieving father. He can say whatever he wants and blame whoever he’d like – it’s okay by me. You can’t take a step in his shoes – at least I can’t.

But the words and images of Mr. Martinez blaming “the proliferation of guns”, lobbyists, politicians, etc.; will be exploited by gun-grab extremists as are all tragedies involving gun violence and the mentally ill by the anti-Second Amendment Left.

As a father, husband and a man, it is my responsibility to protect my family. I will stand up for that right vehemently. Please believe me, as a father I share your grief and I will pray for you and your family, as I do whenever I hear about senseless tragedies such as this.

We still have the Right to Bear Arms and I intend to continue to speak out for that right, and against those who would restrict it – even in the face of this horrible incident by this sad and insane individual. I almost said “Obama Voter” but I’m waiting for it to be official.

I noticed the mainstream media have stopped the practice of immediately reporting the psycho maniac is a conservative Tea Party Republican Christian. Guess they’re sick of having to hide being wrong every time when it comes out the whacko votes Democrat?

Mr. Martinez and anyone calling for more restrictions on American’s rights need to back off and stop playing into the hands of the folks who merely capitalize on these horrific events for their own political ends.

They don’t care about your family or  your dead children at all. They sound like they do, whereas I sound uncaring and like I say, harsh. Don’t be fooled – I care about your family and mine. The future of our very liberty lies in the balance of this fight.

In conclusion, I cannot begin to imagine the pain you are going through, having had your child taken away from you. However, any feelings you have toward my rights being taken away from me, lose those.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/23/14

  • Mike Huckabee will be the featured speaker at the March for Marriage in Washington, D.C. next month.
  • FRC praises the RNC for announcing that the 2016 convention will not be held in Las Vegas.
  • We are pretty sure that Glenn Beck would not be so nonchalant if Amazon decided that it would not sell his books.
  • Bryan Fischer believes that Russell Moore has "been scared straight" after he criticized right-wing Christian radio.
  • Finally, Robert Gagnon has written an open letter to Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett calling upon him to appeal the recent ruling striking down the state's gay marriage ban: "[I]t is absurd to regard a person of the same sex as one’s anatomical, physiological, and psychological counterpart or sexual complement. Becoming sexually aroused by what one already is as a gendered being, as though one were only half one’s own sex rather than half of a whole sexual spectrum containing two sexes, is obviously contrary to nature and a self-dishonoring impulse."

Graham: Pastors Need To Be Willing To 'Get Our Heads Chopped Off' For Opposing Gay Rights

Franklin Graham spoke at the Family Research Council's Watchmen on the Wall conference yesterday where he told the assembled pastors that they all needed to be willing to have their heads chopped off for speaking the truth that gays are bound for hell.

"Are we going to be cowards because we're afraid?," Graham asked the crowd. "Could we get our heads chopped off? We could, maybe one day.  So what? Chop it off!"

Graham went on to assert that he loves gays "enough to care to warn them that if they want to continue living like this, it's the flames of hell for you" and he will continue to do so because he will one day have to answer to God and does not want to be found to have been a coward who refused to preach God's laws:

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/22/14

  • Erik Rush insists that all of his conspiracy theories are not conspiracy theories at all because these conspiracies are all real!
  • A very intriguing headline: "Exotic Dancer Finds Freedom From Demonic Attacks."
  • Liberty Counsel is excited by arguments that atheism/humanism is a religion because it might lead to allowing the teaching of creationism in public schools.
  • Did you know that political correctness is a form of hate? Now you do.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says that our culture is like the World Trade Center and right-wing pastors are the courageous first responders who ran in to try and put out the fire.
