Right Wing Leftovers - 1/14/13

  • Buster Wilson has had an epiphany: "[T]he progressive left just doesn’t care! They absolutely do not care about the facts, they don’t care about the truth, and they certainly do NOT care about what God or the Bible has to say about this! ... They want dominance. They want special privileges. They want special protections."
  • We have no idea that GOPround actually does ... but now they are spreading their efforts to the states.
  • James Dobson and John Hagee, together at last.
  • Peter LaBarbera says "the homosexual movement corrupts our country."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer lectures Colin Powell, insisting that the GOP is not racist because the party abolished slavery and passed civil rights legislation.  Of course, that was a long time ago ... but they did also have Allen West in Congress for one term.

Barton: There Were No Gun Accidents During the Founding Era

Today, Rick Green and David Barton weighed-in on the tragedy at Sandy Hook by laying out not only the standard Religious Right solutions of putting prayer and the Bible back in schools, but also adding a unique suggestion to start arming everyone from early childhood.

Explaining that he began teaching his own kids how to use guns at the age of four, Barton said that people only want to get rid of guns because they are afraid of them, which can be attributed to the fact that they don't know how to use them.

As such, if everyone had a gun and was taught how to use it from childhood, there would never be any firearm incidents or accidents, just like during the founding era:

That's what these guys do not see and do not look at; they're just flat scared of guns.  And the solution to that is exactly what the Founding Fathers said and that is you start teaching kids to use guns when they're very young because gun accidents are caused by non-familiarity with guns; once you're familiar with them, you don't have accidents with them.

I have searched and in the founding era I think I've only ever found two gun accidents and everybody was hauling guns back then; you took your guns to church, you were required by state law in some states to take your guns to church.  We didn't have accidents because everyone was familiar with how to use them.  It's not being familiar that makes is dangerous.

Staver: CA Law is a 'Wake-Up Call to America' That Gay Activists Seek to 'Abolish Morality'

As Liberty Counsel continues its crusade against the California law that bans the use of sexual orientation conversion therapy on minors, it remains a frequent topic of discussion on the "Faith and Freedom" radio program, despite the fact that Mat Staver and Matt Barber essentially just keep making the same points over and over again.

But they do add new twists every now and again, like when Staver recently declared that this law ought to serve are a "wake-up call to America" that gay activists are on a mission to "abolish morality": 

Fischer Says the Anti-Gay Right is Tired of Getting 'Pushed Around' and 'Backing Down' and Vows to Push Back

Over the weekend, Bryan Fischer was interviewed by WorldNetDaily about pastor Louie Giglio's withdrawal from participation in President Obama’s inauguration; a topic on which Fischer has not been reluctant to voice his outrage.

While speaking to WND, Fischer predicted that this development would serve as a catalyst for anti-gay Christian activists to stand up and declare that they tired of "getting pushed around" and will start to push back against these "bullying tactics from the left":

I think more and more Christians and social conservatives are going to say, "Look, I’m tired of us getting pushed around here. You know, the values that we believe in this area are values that were shared by the Founding Fathers. They’re the same set of moral values that built the United States into the greatest, and strongest and most prosperous nation in the world."

I’m tired of backing down on this issue. I’m tired of apologizing for this. I’m tired of Christian leaders who apologize for this. It’s time for us to show some strength and some moxy. So I think we’re going to start to see some push-back against these bullying tactics from the left.

Right Wing Leftovers - 1/11/13

  • Roy Moore was sworn in as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court today, nine years after being removed from that very position for refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the courthouse.
  • How sad, the Tea Party is struggling to find a way to remain relevant.
  • Bill Donohue says that "given [President] Obama’s ideology, perhaps it would make more sense for him to swear on Das Kapital" at his inauguration.
  • Is Mark Sanford really contemplating a run for Congress?
  • Finally, Glenn Beck and crew mock Alex Jones for crying and believing in crazy conspiracy theories.  Seriously:

Fischer: We Are the Victims of 'a New Moral McCarthyism'

Yesterday, Bryan Fischer responded to the news that pastor Louie Giglio had withdrawn from participation in President Obama’s inauguration by declaring that anti-gay Christians were "the new Rosa Parks" and the victims of modern-day Jim Crow laws.

He returned to the topic today, citing a piece by Al Mohler  to declare that anti-gay Christians are now the victims of "moral McCarthyism":

Fischer: High-Capacity Magazines Necessary to Defend Yourself from a Posse

On yesterday's broadcast, Brian Fischer discussed an incident in Georgia in which a woman used a .38 caliber handgun to shoot an intruder who had broken into her home to make the case for the need for high-capacity magazines on the grounds that just because a simple handgun was effective in this situation, what if someone needed to defend themselves from a "posse"?

Independence Park to be Glenn Beck's 'Galt's Gulch'

The other day we mentioned that Glenn Beck intends to "go Galt" with a new effort called "The American Dream Labs" which he is building with the intention of revolutionizing everything from technology to education to agriculture to entertainment and even creating new forms of energy.

On his program last night, Beck revealed that his intention to "go Galt" is quite literal, unveiling grandiose plans to create an entirely self-sustaining community called Independence Park that will provide its own food and energy, produce television and film content, host research and development, serve as a marketplace for products and ideas, while also housing a theme park and serving as a residential community.

At the center - in the middle of the lake that is itself larger than all of Disney Land - Beck (with the help of David Barton) will create a massive "national archive"/learning center where people can send their children to be "deprogrammed" and elected officials can come to learn "the truth."

All for a mere $2 billion.

There is no way to even try to summarize the delusional insanity of Beck's twenty minute description of his vision, so we are just posting the entire video:
