Right Wing Round-Up - 4/30/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/30/13

  • The pastor convicted of helping Lisa Miller kidnap her daughter and flee the country says Miller "is a living testimony to the Power of Jesus, the Power that can set us free from the burden of sin, even the sins of a sexual nature that all of us face in this decadent age."
  • Michele Bachmann seems to have real difficulty telling the truth.
  • Rick Green really loves George W. Bush: "When President Bush and Laura came out to speak for a few minutes at the dinner, it only took about thirty seconds of his genuine, no-nonsense but joyful delivery for me to realize how much I miss him being my president and how much I truly detest the pompous, scripted, fake personality that occupies the office currently."
  • Frank Gaffney says it is becoming impossible to figure out which side President Obama is on regarding Islamic terrorism and "we may even regard his malfeasance as constituting high crimes and misdemeanors."
  • Paul Cameron continues to spread his anti-gay pseudoscience.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer doesn't seem to appreciate the fact that we watch him and his cohorts like a hawk:

Fischer: Jason Collins' Coming Out Is Not Brave or Courageous, But 'Just a Shrewd Marketing Move'

Bryan Fischer dedicated a segment on his radio program today to once again discussing the news that Jason Collins has become the first active NBA player to announce that he is gay.  And Fischer is unimpressed, to say the least, saying that Collins is a free agent at the end of his career with no real prospects of playing again next season and so he thought this was a good opportunity for himself to garner some attention for himself and make money.

"Everybody is talking about how brave and courageous Jason Collins is and I'm going to submit to you that he's not being brave and courageous at all," Fischer declared. "This is just a shrewd marketing move to wave the rainbow flag right at the time when it can be of the most benefit to him. A year from now, when he's been out of the NBA for a year, nobody is going to care.  This is the only time this would be of any benefit to him ... This is why this is not courageous; he's become a hero to the deviancy cabal and their allies in the political world and academia and the media, like President Obama":

Beck: Conspiracy Theorists Work to 'Plant the Seeds of Doubt Whenever and Wherever They Can'

Despite the fact that we watch Glenn Beck's programming for hours every day, we generally have no idea what it is he is taking about, mostly because his stream-of-consciousness style tends to blend his own conspiracies and his regular denunciations of conspiracy theories into one incoherent mess.

Last night's program was a perfect example, as he dedicated one portion to raising "unanswered questions" about the judge brought in to read Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda Rights by raising suspicions about her travels to Muslim nations.  That was followed by a discussion of claims by Tsarnaev's mother that her sons were not responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing and are the victims of some sort of conspiracy to set them up.

Beck then went on to suggest that this is part of some sort of intentional disinformation campaign designed to confuse people and it is working because her claims ring true to those who do not trust America, which is a growing number of people since 9/11.  Beck said that since people know that they cannot get the truth from the government or the media, conspiracy theories can more easily take root.  

To prove his point, he said that in the aftermath of 9/11, nobody believed "the Truthers" because "we never would have believed that before" but now "all they have to do is plant the seeds of doubt whenever and wherever they can."

And this, Beck suggested, is exactly what Tsarnaev's mother is doing, leading him to declare that "I can't help but wonder, is somebody coaching her"?

Wiles: 'The Next Holocaust [Victims] Are American Christians

On Friday's radio broadcast, End Times radio host Rick Wiles and his guest, John McTernan, engaged in a long discussion about how things like abortion and homosexuality are bringing a curse on America.  Eventually McTernan and Wiles asserted that President Obama is linked "at the hip" with Kermit Gosnell before declaring that what is happening to Christians in America is just what happened to Jews in Nazi Germany, meaning that the next vicitims of a holocaust will be American Christians:

McTernan: We've murdered 60 million babies. And they've got the case in Pennsylvania, I don't know if you've been following or not ...

Wiles: Yes, Gosnell.

McTernan: I mean ... how do you describe this? Well, this is what Obama stands for.

Wiles: Barbaric.

McTernan: Obama is linked arm in arm, at the hip with this butcher.

Wiles: He hasn't denounced it. He's expressed no sorrow over what this butcher did to those children.

McTernan: And I must warn your listeners, that cold-heartedness that you see in Obama will translate into physical violence against us.

Wiles: That's right.

McTernan: He can't do it right now. Just like the Nazis, when they took power in Germany, the next day they couldn't kill the Jews.  They wanted to, but it took preparation and they had to get society ready for it. They had to marginalize the Jews, demonize the Jews, blame them for everything.  Well, that's the process that's going on in America now.

Wiles: And the Christians are the new Jews.

McTernan: We're the new Jews.

Wiles: The next holocaust are American Christians.  That's what's coming.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/29/13

  • It is a genuine tragedy that this country never had the opportunity to witness the class that Sarah Palin would have brought to the Vice Presidency.
  • Even The Blaze is recognizing that Glenn Beck's 2123B timeline doesn't make much sense.
  • Tom Minnery says this nation may soon see a religious revial, in part because "religion makes people healthier" and so "given that health care costs are rising chronically, it may be that discounts on health insurance may be offered for those who attend church regularly or who otherwise demonstrate their religious participation."
  • Bryan Fischer continues to speculate that the military blocked the Southern Baptist Convention's website out of some sort of hostility toward Christians despite the fact that even the SBC says that was not the case.
  • Peter LaBarbera is not happy with news that the LDS church supports a proposal to drop the ban on gay Boy Scouts: "Look, this is a church which is outside of Christendom. Mormons can change their core beliefs and call it a divine transformation. They did it with polygamy; they did it with racism – and now I'm afraid, I'm very afraid, that they're going to do it with homosexuality.”
  • Finally, the AFA's Ed Vitagliano is also a little worked-up over the prospect that the Boy Scouts may soon allow gay scouts: "For the tolerance gurus there is a secular morality that is just as absolute as that preached by any Bible-thumper behind a pulpit. It is a pagan sexual ethic rooted in moral relativism with the taproot deeply embedded in Darwinian evolution. Its teachers have their own unbending laws cut into stone and pronounced from on high. Their prophets hurl jeremiads at the unrepentant, who are relegated to a this-worldly hell consisting of the drying up of corporate funding, the disdain and downright persecution of the civil state, banishment to the fringes on university campuses, and the sneering mockery of Hollywood. For these pioneers of the brave new world, people who practice sodomy are the saints and Christians are the sinners. And humanist stormtroopers have spent the last 60 years hunting down and driving out the infidels."

'You Can Live In Your Little Dream World': Glenn Beck Sees Echoes of Nazism in the Hunt for Boston Bomber

On his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck spent several minutes discussing a photo reportedly taken during the hunt for suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev showing a police officer riding in a Humvee aiming his rifle up at the person taking the photo through a window.

And Beck finds the photograph particularly frightening because it reminds him of something he learned when visiting Auschwitz, which is that the Nazis would murder anyone who dared to so much as look out the window when they came to haul away Jewish families living in a neighborhood.

"So there were no eyewitnesses to anything because they had trained them," Beck explained.  "You make that mistake one time and the entire neighborhood and the town realize when they say stay in the house, they mean stay in your house.  When they say don't look out the window, don't approach a window, don't look at what's going on, you don't or they'll kill you."

And, Beck says, anyone who thinks that this will never happen here can just continue to "live in your little dream world" because "everything that has happened so far, we have told you would happen and everybody said it wouldn't happen":

Daubenmire: Hunt For Boston Marathon Bomber Was a Dry Run for Martial Law

It seems that "Coach" Dave Daubenmire will be making his way into our regular monitoring rotation because, frankly, if Peter LaBarbera thinks he is the sort of person that his audience ought to listen to, then he is also the sort of person to whom we ought to be paying attention.

And judging by the sorts of commentary videos Daubenmire posts on his YouTube page, we'll have a lot to write about, like this new one declaring that the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that essentially locked-down the city of Boston earlier this month was a test run by the government to see how citizens would respond when martial law is imposed.

"There was a day in America when we wouldn't have sat around inside of our houses, hiding from a nineteen year old kid," Daubermire declared, "but we would have grabbed our guns and gone to the street and found that young man ourselves."

"If you live in a city," he continued, "and you have any way that you possible can, find a place to move outside of the outer belt in your city":
