On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer coined a new phrase — "Harfed up a hairball" — inspired by State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf, who has spent the last two days trying to tamp down a right-wing freakout over her assertion that the world cannot simply "kill our way out of this war" with ISIS.
As Fischer explained it, this phrase was now going to become his stock description for when "you say something that is patently absurd."
"Liberals are absolutely anti-science when it comes climatology and global warming," Fischer said. "This is trait that they share in common with Islam. Our leaders on the left are almost as unscientific, almost as anti-science as the leaders of the movement of Islam":
Glenn Beck's misguided opposition to net neutrality is well known and despite his record of being wrongaboutnearly everything, he spent a good portion of today's radio program warning that if the principle of net neutrality is preserved, voices such as his will eventually be silenced and declaring that America deserves to be destroyed if is so stupid as to allow it to happen.
Nobody trusts the government or Big Business, Beck marveled, "and yet you're giving Big Business and government more latitude! What are you, insane?"
"We deserve to be wiped out," he concluded. "We deserve to be wiped out. If you're this stupid, America, you deserve and somebody else is going to have to rise up and free you. It's what's going to happen."
"This wipes out our voice," Beck continued. "I'm telling you, the voices like ours will be gone. I promise you that."
Just how positive is Beck that this will absolutely happen?
"I am as convinced of this as I was of the Caliphate," he said:
A few weeks ago, Mat Staver announced that Liberty Counsel was creating a new humanitarian arm, called Liberty Relief International, that will provide aid and assistance to Christians and Jews facing violent persecution around the world:
The fact is, the world is becoming more and more dangerous for Christians and Jews. Anti-Semitism and anti-Christian bigotry are on the rise due, in large part, to the rapid expansion of radical Islamism. Providing humanitarian relief, with an emphasis on helping those facing religious persecution, has become a vital aspect of Liberty Counsel’s mission of advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family.
Which brings us to this special day and the online launch of Liberty Relief International, the humanitarian relief arm of Liberty Counsel.
We now envision a much-expanded vision of what Liberty Counsel can do through humanitarian relief, most notably where Christians and Jews are facing a rising tide of persecution.
On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Staver and co-host Matt Barber discussed this new effort, which Barber asserted was a natural fit for Liberty Counsel because the organization already has extensive experience fighting gay rights, President Obama's "cultural Marxism," and anti-Christian persecution in America.
"This is such a natural evolution of Liberty Counsel," Barber declared. "For decades, Liberty Counsel has been, of course, defending Christians and people of faith against the growing, the burgeoning problem in the United States that is cultural Marxism. Many people who control the reins of government are pushing the radical so-called LGBT agenda, the pro-abortion agenda; even we have a president, a leftist president, who embraces all of those cultural Marxist causes which are directly contrary to the tenets of Christianity."
"And so Liberty Counsel has defended in the courts and in public policy around what I call 'soft persecution' here in the United States," he continued. "Christians being persecuted for standing firm on the biblical truth relative to sexual morality and the sanctity of life and the natural family and so forth. So it's natural ... [that Liberty Counsel would be well-placed to defend people] who are being abused and even tortured to death in an anti-Christian genocide":
Mark Creech is scandalized! "A Supreme Court justice so juiced-up she's passed out while representing the nation's highest court in our nation's capital, in the presence of Congress, before the President of the United States, televised in front of a national audience, is nothing to laugh about. It's shameful!"
Liberty Counsel is not happy with our "Muslim In Chief."
Dr. J. Paul Nyquist, president of Moody Bible Institute, declares that "the culture war is over—and we lost" and calls upon "American Christians to prepare to live righteously in the face of persecution."
David Barton explains to CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that our rights do, in fact, come from God.
FRC invites you to join "Dr. Mark Regnerus as he discusses the ways in which Americans relate, particularly in matters of marriage and sexuality."
Finally, Fay Voshell calls upon pastors to deny communion to those who participate in BDSM because "libertinage in all its forms is a direct attack on a still Christianized Western civilization."
Radical Religious Right activist Janet Porter has released yet another trailer for her upcoming documentary "Light Wins: How To Overcome The Criminalization Of Christianity," which features a who's who of anti-gay activists as well as several Republican members of Congress and presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee.
"Like a tank in Tiananmen Square," Porter says, as she walks down the middle of a dark street as a pair of headlights bear down upon her, "the homosexual agenda has been running over people since Anita Bryant's courageous stand in the 1970s."
After that, it is nothing but 10 minutes of anti-gay activists calling upon Christians to rise up and fight back against the "homosexual agenda."
Among the participants we immediately recognized in this new clip are Huckabee, David Barton, Gary Glenn, Steven Hotze, Robert Knight, Judith Reisman, Stacy Swimp, Greg Quinlan, Rep. Louie Gohmert, Brian Camenker, James Dobson, Bill Donohue, Scott Lively, Frank Pavone, Dutch Sheets, Phyllis Schlafly, Rick Scarborough, Gary Bauer, Mark Crutcher, Jerry Boykin, and Harry Jackson.
At one point, Gohmert declares that it is the duty of Christians to "love people who engage in homosexualty" because "we all have family members that we think are making major mistakes with their lives, but you can still love them."
Later, Pastor Steve Witt declares that just as God would have saved Sodom and Gomorrah if only 10 righteous people could be found, so too can most American cities be spared, but only if thousands of people will take a stand against homosexuality.
At the end of this new clip, Porter is shown in an empty football stadium, warning that "the battle for our freedom is being fought while most Christians are on the sidelines. We need to get out of the stands and into the game because the Super Bowl for our country is being fought and our team is not even on the field."
David Barton was a guest this morning on the American Family Association's "Today's Issues" radio program where he explained to the right-wing audience that in order to understand President Obama's foreign policy, one simply has to ask the question: What does the Muslim Brotherhood want?
As Barton explained it, 95 percent of Obama's foreign policy decisions regarding the Middle East can be summed up by the phrase, "If the Muslim Brotherhood would be for it, [Obama] is for it; if they're against it he's against it."
As "proof" of this, Barton went on to claim that on seven separate occasions, Obama "has publicly leaked to the media secret intelligence from Israel about what they were doing to stop terrorism," especially regarding Iran.
"On seven occasions, he has leaked secret intelligence about what Israel is about to do in Iran or elsewhere and released that to the Muslim world," he claimed. "I scratch my head and say, 'How can you do that to your closest ally, release their top secret intelligence on what they're about to do?' And the answer is: Muslim Brotherhood would do it and so he does."
As usual, Barton did not actually provide any evidence to support this claim other than his own "research," so it is impossible to know what he is even referencing or how he would explain the millions of dollars in U.S. aid to the al-Sisi government in Egypt, which has vowed to destroy the Muslim Brotherhood.
UPDATE: On the February 23 edition of his "WallBuilders Live" radio program, Barton finally provided some "evidence" to back up his claims, though he only managed to cite four specific instances, most of which do not prove his point at all:
The first instance Barton cited was a report from 2010 that revealed that Saudi Arabia had agreed to allow Israeli bombers to pass over the country in the event that Israel was going to carry out an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. According to the article, a "U.S. defense source in the Persian Gulf" revealed that the plan "has all been done with the agreement of the State Department." Why the Obama administration would seek to undermine Israel by leaking details on an agreement that it had reportedly approved is not something that Barton ever explained.
The second instance Barton cited was a 2012 instance in which the Obama administration supposedly leaked to the New York Times information "on war exercises that Israel was doing, practicing a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities." Of course, if you read the article in question, it focused on a simulation run by the U.S. military on the ramifications of an Israeli strike on Iran, which concluded that such an attack would draw the U.S. into a large regional conflict.
The article did not, as Barton claimed, reveal Israeli war plans, but rather the results of a U.S. simulation of what could happen in the wake of an Israeli attack.
The third instance that Barton cited — a 2012 ABC News piece that reported that analysts in Israel were "accusing the Obama administration leaking information to pressure Israel not to bomb Iran and for Iran to reach a compromise in upcoming nuclear talks" — is the only one that says what Barton claims it says.
The final example that Barton cited was an April 2012 article in the New Yorker which he claimed contained leaked information from the U.S. that revealed that "the Israeli intelligence agency was helping fund and train the Iranian opposition ... the more moderates to help take out that administration."
The article in question was a Seymour Hersh piece reporting that the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command had been training "members of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq, a dissident Iranian opposition group known in the West as the M.E.K," despite the fact that the M.E.K is designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department. Among the material contained in the Hersh article was information from an earlier NBC report that that several Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated since 2007, presumably by members of the M.E.K who were trained and financed by the Israeli Mossad.
As far as we can tell, outside of possibly the 2012 ABC News piece, not one of these articles cited by Barton actually contains evidence that the Obama administration has "publicly leaked to the media secret intelligence from Israel" as he originally claimed.
On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program recently, Gordon Klingenschmitt was discussing the possibility that the owners of an Oregon bakery may have to pay significant fines after refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, when he praised the bakery owners for "being a blessing" to the entire gay community "by refusing to participate in their acts of sodomy."
After asserting that it is the goal of the government to bankrupt Christian business owners, Klingenschmitt declared that Aaron and Melissa Klein "are being persecuted for righteousness sake" and hailed them "for actually being a blessing to the homosexual community by speaking truth to them and refusing to participate in their acts of sodomy. They are defining right and wrong and saying, 'We are not going to endorse your sin because it is harmful to you in the homosexual community.'"
Klingenschmitt then went on to pray that Christians will not "manifest the demonic spirit that would endorse that sin" but will have "the freedom to not agree with the Devil":
Back in August of 2013, Glenn Beck explained that everything that was going on it the world at the time was simply a proxy war between the United States and Russia and predicted that, within a year, the conflict would break out into an "openly hot war" that would signal the start of World War III.
Needless to say, that did not happen, yet Beck continues to declare that "all of these things I predicted and warned of" are now coming true, only now he is convinced that the war against ISIS is what will bring about WWIII.
Citing the recent beheading of 21 Coptic Christians, as well as the attack carried out in Copenhagen over the weekend, Beck used his television program last night to deliver a "wake-up call" that "we are now in the early stages of World War III" ... and that is why the show "The Walking Dead" is so popular.
"I think that we all know that the world is about to come undone," Beck theorized. "We all know, there is something in us that tells us the world is out of control but I don't want to watch that ... and so why are we watching 'The Walking Dead'? We're watching 'The Walking Dead' because we know the zombies aren't real. And so it allows us to connect with what we're really feeling but allows us to be in a safe zone because we know zombies aren't real. Zombies are ISIS. Zombies is our economic peril. The rest of the show is what we say is coming":
