Bryan Fischer: Target's Policy Will Transform The Store Into A Motel For Rebellious Teenagers

After spending several segments on his radio broadcast yesterday ranting about Target's policy of allowing transgender customers and employees to use the restrooms and fitting rooms that match their gender identities, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who had a rather novel concern about the policy.

"Rebecca from Van Buren, Arkansas" told Fischer that she was concerned that a "rebellious teenager" might use the bathrooms or changing rooms at Target to hook up with their boyfriend or girlfriend, essentially transforming the store into a motel.

Fischer thought that she made an excellent point.

"You know, Rebecca's got a great point," he said. "I hadn't even thought about that but it's just another alarming permutation of this deal. If you've got a daughter and you don't care for her boyfriend, you don't want them hooking up, you don't want them meeting, you know his intentions for her are not good, what is to stop her from arraigning a tryst in a fitting room at Target? He can go into any room he wants, she can go in there, they can have a certain amount of privacy; or in a Target bathroom, go in there and lock the door and have a certain amount of privacy. So again, you start seeing the permutation, all the different angles this thing can take, none of which are good, none of which are healthy, none of which are good for the family, none of which are good for sexual integrity and all that kind of thing and, you know, we've just sort of scratched the surface of the number of ways these policies can be twisted and perverted for purposes which are not good for anybody."

  • According to Andy Schlafly, the chaos at the Eagle Forum is being fomented by a bunch of "liberals" within the organization who are "fine with the feminism of Ted Cruz and his wife." 
  • Janet Porter joins the Religious Right crusade against Target: "Remember when Cracker Barrel threatened to pull Duck Dynasty products because of Phil Robertson’s pro-marriage stand? We responded, and they backed down. Now it’s Target’s turn."
  • Burt Prelutsky declares that "there isn’t a doubt in my mind that leftists are certifiably insane."

Bryan Fischer: It's 'Insanity' To Vote For Any Candidate Who Supports Target

Bryan Fischer spent a couple of segments on his radio program today absolutely fuming about Target's announcement that its stores will "welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity," a policy that predictably prompted an American Family Association boycott.

Fischer grew increasingly worked up over the fact that only Ted Cruz has taken a stand against this sort of policy, saying that "this is maybe the most bizarre point we have ever reached in American history."

"Only one of the five people that want to be the next president of the United States — only one of them! — is committed to keeping sexual deviants out of our daughters' bathrooms, out of our daughters' locker rooms, our of our daughters' shower rooms and out of our daughters' dressing rooms," Fischer ranted.

"If a presidential candidate is not committed to keeping sexual perverts out of little girls' bathrooms," he continued, "I do not care what else he stands for ... If he won't keep sexual perverts out of little girls' bathrooms, nothing else he says or believes makes any difference to me."

"How in the world could any right-thinking father or mother possibly vote for a candidate like that?" Fischer seethed. "To even consider the possibility of casting a vote for such a person is a form of insanity."

'Circus And Cakes': Glenn Beck On Bathrooms And How President Trump Will Put Him In Jail

Glenn Beck spent a good bit of time on his radio program today railing against criticism of anti-LGBT laws that have been enacted recently in places like North Carolina and Mississippi before turning around and complaining about how the entire issue is just a "circus" meant to distract from the fact that "world is on fire."

"This is just the new circus and cakes," Beck said (he meant "bread and circuses"). "This is just the new Colosseum. Get them to talk about the bathrooms so they're not talking about Syria, so they're not talking about the debt, so they're not talking about corruption, so they're not talking about Hillary's server. Get them to talk about the bathrooms. This is the new cakes and circuses and it's brilliant because it works."

Then, seemingly realizing the irony of complaining about people talking about this issue after he just spent several minutes talking about this issue, Beck attempted to pivot his way out of his own hypocrisy by going after Donald Trump and President Obama.

"If Donald Trump goes in, he will put us out of business that fast," Beck said, snapping his fingers. "He is not going to put up with people who question his authority. Barack Obama didn't; he put people in jail. Listen to me again: he put people in jail, Barack Obama did, who are in our business for coming out and saying this is what the government's doing. Whistleblowers. More whistleblowers were put in jail than any time since Woodrow Wilson. You don't think this guy's going to do it?"

Glenn Beck: Grover Norquist Is A Deep-Cover Spy For The Muslim Brotherhood

On his radio program yesterday, as part of his crusade to get right-wing anti-tax activist Grover Norquist removed from the board of the National Rifle Association for supposedly being a front man for the Muslim Brotherhood, Glenn Beck interviewed the Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin, who is a longtime Norquist critic and anti-Islam activist.

Following the interview, Beck literally begged the NRA members in his audience to vote to remove Norquist from the organization's board, warning that this is the last chance to stop him.

"If this works, his empire really falls apart," Beck said. "If it doesn't, no one will ever touch him and his influence will expand and so will the Muslim Brotherhood, at the highest levels."

Beck then likened Norquist to the protagonists of the television show "The Americans," which is about deep-cover KGB spies in America during the Cold War, which he cited to praise the efforts of Joseph McCarthy.

While McCarthy was "wrong in presentation and he was the wrong messenger," Beck said, history as proven "that what McCarthy was saying was true." 

"If you watch that show 'The Americans,' that happened, that's true,' Beck declared. "Grover Norquist is the modern-day version of that KGB handler, if you will, whether he knows it or not. But the infiltration has happened and he's the doorway to it."

  • John Hagee says that he is building a "Sanctuary of Hope" for unwed mothers in "response to the barbarism that we saw displayed in these videos on Planned Parenthood." That is odd, given that they announced this project back in 2014.
  • We should probably not base our public policy on a bad experience that Joseph Farah once had: "I don’t much want to share a restroom with a woman who thinks she’s really a man. I’ll be very honest about that. I remember visiting Amsterdam a few years ago and had to use a public restroom. I was appalled that it was staffed by women attendants. I suddenly lost the overwhelming desire to relieve myself."
  • Glenn Beck misses blue laws for a typical Beckian reason: "Part of me says we needed those laws to be able to hold our culture and our people together because we don’t have any rituals to do it."
  • In a move that should not surprise anybody, Jesse Lee Peterson has endorsed Donald Trump.
  • Finally, a sober warning from David Lane: "Secular, fringe-extremists have become so infatuated with idol worship that they have lost all sense of restraint, with the goals of pushing transgender bathrooms, turning straight men gay and heterosexual women into lesbians."

Glenn Beck Explains Why God Is Dragging Out The GOP Primary All The Way To The Convention

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck suggested that the Republican presidential primary race is going to be dragged out all the way until the national convention because God wants to allow everyone to have their say before He removes his hand of protection from his nation (presumably for failing to nominate or elect Ted Cruz as president.)

As he explained, God is "making sure all of us are accountable" for what happens to this nation, saying that while presidential primary contests are usually settled relatively early on, things are different this year because God knows that the fate of the nation is at stake.

In America today, just as in the Old Testament, Beck said, "the people cry out for a king and God and the prophets stand up and say, 'Don't do it, don't do it.' And the people cry out for a king and God and some people stand up and say, 'Don't do it, don't do it.' But those people who are standing up are always in the vast minority; 'Don't do it, you don't want a king.' And then, usually, the third time they cry out for a king and God's like, 'Whatever. You got a king.' He doesn't stop your free choice; you have free choice. Because we have a covenant with God that started with George Washington, because we have a covenant, I think before He withdraws His protection, He just wants you to be clear and He doesn't want New York to decide for you, He doesn't want New Hampshire to decide for you, Florida, Iowa."

"This thing is going to end at the convention," he stated, "but it is going to end with each one of us having to decide and writing our name down, do you want a king or not?"

David Barton: 'The Way You Get AIDS Now Is You Have To Violate God's Standard Of Sexuality'

Last week, David Barton, the Religious Right pseudo-historian and GOP operative who is currently running a major super PAC in support of Ted Cruz's candidacy, spoke at a conference organized by the North Carolina Pastors Network, where he asserted that despite the success in evangelizing other nations, Christian converts are still engaging in unbiblical behavior as demonstrated by the fact that they are still getting AIDS and electing gays to public office.

In audio kindly provided to us by Freedom for All Americans, Barton can be heard explaining that "America is the single biggest influence in helping Christianize the rest of the world" but lamenting that the success in winning people to Christ has not necessarily translated into changes in behavior as these Christian converts continue to largely live by "secular values." 

"If you look at places in Africa," he said, "there are several nations in Africa that are 90 percent professing Christians, they call themselves a Christian nation, 90 percent of the population is Christian. In the last 25 years, in those 90 percent Christian nations, the AIDS rate has gone up, government corruption has soared through the roof, mistreatment of women is skyrocketing and poverty is increasing. Now tell me how, in a 90 percent Christian nation, you get this much bad fruit?"

"If you live by the Bible, you're not going to have the sexual misbehavior that leads to AIDS," he continued. "If you practice sex within marriage between a man and woman, AIDS is an impossibility, [other than through] a blood transfusion and now that we've checked that, we haven't had blood transfusion problems for about the last 15 years. So the way you get AIDS now is you have to violate God's standard of sexuality."

To further illustrate his point, Barton pointed to some unnamed nation in Central America that is also supposedly a 90 percent Christian nation but which "just had an election [where] they elected open homosexuals as their national leaders."

"Now how do you do that in a 90 percent Christian nation?" he asked. "1 Corinthians says that homosexuals will not enter the kingdom of heaven; you're a 90 percent Christian nation and you elect open homosexuals to elect the 90 percent that are Christian?"

In the past, Barton, who currently runs a pro-Ted Cruz super PAC, has repeatedly asserted that God will never allow us to find a cure for AIDS because the disease is His punishment for sin.
