Right Wing Leftovers - 9/6/12

  • The missionaries hiding kidnapper Lisa Miller say "that they are willing to suffer imprisonment or death in the cause of protecting Isabella."
  • According to a right-wing medical association, Todd Akin was right and "there is medical data to back up what he was trying to say."
  • The National Religious Broadcasters will unveil a "Free Speech Charter for the Internet" which seeks to combat "new media web-based tech companies [that have] contributed to the suppression of free speech."
  • Gary Bauer says that "if we keep destroying unborn children, if we redefine God's institution of marriage -- I think a country that does those things will find itself in deep trouble not only economically, but also in many other ways."
  • Finally, upcoming conference calls promoting the 40 Days to Save America effort will feature Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman and Rick Santourm.

Garlow: There Are Only '61 Days of America Left' Before it is Gone Forever

Few Religious Right leaders can match Jim Garlow for delivering dire doom and gloom warnings about what is in store for America and Christians if the church does not rise up and make sure that President Obama is not re-elected.

Today, he joined Tony Perkins and Tim Wildmon on "Today's Issues" where he bluntly declared that there are only "61 days of America left" because if Obama is re-elected, America will become permanently unrecognizable. As such, it is imperative that Christians become "unbelievably bold," just as Perkins and Wildmon have been, for which they will one day be hailed by historians: 

Perkins: Dr. Garlow, how critical is the Christian vote in this upcoming election.

Garlow: At the risk of being misunderstood, I am going to say it this bluntly: we have 61 days of America left. I know that sounds melodramatic to some, it sounds alarmist, Chicken Little to some people. But we have 61 days. If we do not see a change at this time, America will be set on a trajectory that will make it unrecognizable in four years; it is almost that today.

We have 61 days of America left. If we do not turn at this point, America as we have known her will be forever gone. It is crisic that people vote, that they activate, that they become informed and they influence every other people they can regardless of how unreceptive people might be to them announcing where they stand on the issues. It is time for us to be unbelievably bold.

And thank you Tim and thank you Tony for what you men do. When historians record what turned America someday, your names are going to be there.

CWA: If Sandra Fluke Just Spent Less on Beer, She Could Afford Her Own Birth Control

Concerned Women for America's president Penny Nance recently sat down with CWA to discuss the different ways in which the Republican and Democrats are trying to appeal to women in their respective conventions and messages.

While the GOP was working to highlight pro-life women leaders, Nance said, the Democrats were trying to appeal to women like Sandra Fluke by handing out free birth control ... women who, if they just spent less money on beer, could afford their own birth control:

The question before us now is how are the Democrats going to handle that issue, how are they going to appeal to women? Is it going to be the Sandra Fluke sort of message that women are only interested in free birth control or free stuff at that. The question is what message works and it is a message of victim-hood, that you need free stuff from the government to be able to be productive in society?

Is this just about the idea that really all it takes to win a woman's vote is free birth control which, by the way, we know that WalMart offers it for $9 a month. I often think I'd like to say to Sandra Fluke that if you'd just had less beer in college, I think you probably could afford the birth control you wanted.

Fischer: We Want to Take America Back to the Book of Genesis

On yesterday's radio program, Bryan Fischer took issue with President Obama's recent claim that the Republican Party's agenda is so dated and retrograde that that it was the sort of thing one would have seen "on a black-and-white TV."

It is not that Republicans are trying to take America back to the days of black-and-white TV, Fischer declared, because they want to go even further back than that ... all the way to the Book of Genesis and the Garden of Eden! 

And that is because any nation that supports things like marriage equality or the right to choose is bound to suffer the wrath of God:

You know, Barack Obama is out there, or the Democrats are out there, saying we want to go back, saying Republicans want to take us back to the days of black-and-white TV, that's what Barack Obama says.

And I say no, we're going way, way, way back further than that; we are going all the way to the dawn of creation. God is the one who created us male and female; God is the one who formed marriage, who created marriage, who designed it to be a union of one man and one woman for life. So we're going way past the 1950s; we're going clear back to the Garden of Eden.

Now I contend that we shed innocent blood and we honor sexual perversity to our national peril. This is not an incidental thing; it puts our nation in grave danger of the judgment of God. If we shed innocent blood and we embrace sexual deviancy, this will bring the judgment of God upon any nation that approves of those behaviors and gives them special protection in laws.

Right Wing Leftovers - 9/5/12

  • Phyllis Schlafly denies reports that she urged Todd Akin to drop out of his run for Senate.
  • Newt Gingrich is very sorry for illegally using "Eye of the Tiger" during his presidential run.
  • Apparently public schools are "misappropriating our taxpayer dollars [and] indoctrinating our children with progressive propaganda."
  • The folks at CitizenLink are a laugh riot.
  • Alveda King once again demonstrates her inability to issue any sort of statement without tying everything to abortion.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says "the American people are faced with a clear, stark and unambiguous choice between these two party platforms. To choose the one is to choose darkness and evil and the wrath of God. To choose the other is to choose light, righteousness and the blessing of God."

Spero: We Must Take to the Streets to Stop the 'Hard-Core Leftist Socialists' Bent on Destroying America

Rabbi Aryeh Spero was the guest on "WallBuilders Live" today where he was promoting his new book "Push Back, Reclaiming the American Judeo-Christian Spirit," which he said he hoped would inspire people to rise up and take to the streets in protest against the "hard-core leftist socialists" who are out to destroy the Constitution and the Judeo-Christian philosophy:

There's no question that there is a very concerted effort by an elitist clique on the left - they used to call themselves liberals; they're really leftists, hard-core leftist socialists - and they want to control every aspect of our life. They have no respect for our religious conscience; they actually have no respect even for the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, they override it whenever they decide to. They called many of our Founding Fathers "dead white males" and by repudiating them, they really wish to repudiate the Constitution, our American ethos, the whole Judeo-Christian system that gave us success.

If we're going to win this battle - we, the citizens state-side here - we've got to rise up and push back; we've got to go into the street, we've got to protest, we've got to rally, we've got to contact all of our people in every type of state legislature, the people on the national level, the local level, the school board because they're fighting us in every single precinct of America to take over the culture, to take over the law, to transform us into something socialist, like Europe, something that has no respect for the Judeo-Christian philosophy. It's our job to fight back; we can't rely on other people to do it for us.

 

Huckabee Parrots Schlafly's Anti-Obama 'Creator' Lie

On his television program last weekend, Mike Huckabee interviewed Phyllis Schlafly about her new book "No Higher Power: Obama's War on Religious Freedom."

While promoting her book, Schlafly has been making her case by falsely claiming that President Obama intentionally drops the word "Creator" whenever he cites or paraphrases the Declaration of Independence ... so it was no surprise to see that Huckabee kicked off the segment by putting forth the same allegation:

As we demonstrated before, this claim that Obama routinely omits any mention of a "Creator" when citing the Declaration is patently false:

Kansas AFA Chapter Seeks to Have City Leaders Indicted over Nude Statue

In November of last year, the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens in Overland Park, Kansas installed "11 life-size bronze sculptures that were created and donated to the arboretum by Chinese sculptors," among which was one of a "disjointed body of a young, bare-breasted woman, one thin arm extended to snap a photo of herself":

Some local residents were so outraged by the statue that they sought, without success, to have it removed.  So eventually the local chapter of the American Family Association stepped in, claiming that the statue encourages “sexting” and violates obscenity standards, and gathered some 4,700 signatures which have now been delivered to the county clerk in order to have city officials indicted by a grand jury:

Phillip Cosby regional head of the American Family Association delivered 4700 signatures to the county clerks office. He wants the artwork gone, and thinks Overland Park City officials could be indicted on obscenity charges.

"There's more in the message here with the presence of the camera, the obvious come hither posture and the aroused breasts and all the sexual components. The statue is sending a message to children," says Cosby.
