Fischer: 'Our CIA Director Is Funding Terrorism'

One thing you quickly learn when regularly watching Bryan Fischer's daily program is that as long as he has any source to which he can point, he is willing to treat even the most unverified and baseless statement as fact, so long as it supports his radical agenda.

Just as he does with his Hitler and the Nazis were gay claims and his AIDS denialism, Fischer digs up some source that he can use to supports his statements and then proceeds to simply assert them as proven, verifiable fact.

Last week, he did so when he asserted that CIA Director John Brennan is a Muslim, even though the "source" of this claim is nothing more than the say-so of a disgraced former FBI agent and anti-Islam activist.

So, since in Fischer's world, it is now a proven fact that Brennan is a Muslim, it only stands to reason that Brennan practices zakāt and donates money to Muslim charities.  And since, according to Fischer, one-eighth of all money given to Muslim charities gets funneled to terrorist organizations to fund violent jihad, the United States now finds itself in a situation where the head of the Central Intelligence Agency is using his tax-payer funded salary to subsidize Islamic terror attacks the United States.

"John Brennan is probably paying money every month," Fischer declared, "to support jihad against the United States.  He's funding terrorism. Our CIA Director is funding terrorism!"

Beck: Obama Is Not The Prophet Muhammad, 'Stop Treating Him Like God'

Glenn Beck is outraged by an incident that took place over the weekend at a rodeo in Missouri where a clown put on a mask of President Obama and that audience cheered on the prospect that he'd be run down by a bull.

Beck is not outraged by the act itself, of course, but rather he is outraged that people are outraged about the act and apologizing for it, declaring on his radio program that tomorrow will officially be "Mock the President Day" because Obama is not god.

"I'm sorry, but the guy is a danger to the Constitution of the United States of America," Beck fumed. "He's not Muhammad, and I know he would like to ban anyone who says anything about the Prophet Muhammad because I think he thinks he is the Prophet Muhammad.  He's not.  Stop treating him like God!"

Miller: Obama Is Imposing A 'Systematic Spiritual And Religious Apartheid'

Alaska Tea Party senate candidate Joe Miller spoke at this weekend's "Family Leadership Summit" in Iowa, where he shared the stage with Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, Donald Trump, Steve King, and various others.

During his remarks, Miller told the audience that "we are at war for the heart and soul of this country" and that this war was started "over a century ago by the utopian statists" who have managed to turn our schools "into centers for atheist indoctrination" while imposing a doctrine of moral relativism upon the nation.

"If we ignore" this fight, Miller warned, "it would be cultural and political suicide," before declaring that "the President of the United States and his allies are engaged in a form of systematic spiritual and religious apartheid":

Fischer: Sodomy Is 'An Ugly Word Because It Describes Ugly Behavior'

On his radio program on Friday, Bryan Fischer told his audience that they should never be reluctant to use the word "sodomy" when discussing the issue of homosexuality, saying that it is a "good word" to use precisely because "it's an ugly word because it describes ugly behavior."

Telling his listeners that they must be wary of ever "ceding ground to the enemy" by allowing gay activists to dictate how they can discuss the issue, Fischer explained that that is why he insists on calling marriage equality "sodomy-based marriage."

"I refer to homosexual marriage," Fischer said, "as sodomy-based marriage.  This is a pseudo-marriage; it's counterfeit marriage, fake marriage; not the real thing, it's naugahyde marriage and it is rooted in the act of sodomy":

Fischer: Unconfessed Sin Can Cause Physical Illness

Bryan Fischer began his radio program yesterday with a discussion of the Book of James regarding the power of prayer, which prompted him to explain that when praying for someone to be healed, it is important that the person who is sick to confess all of their sins because "unconfessed sin can lead to physical sickness."

"Concealed sin," Fischer said, "unconfessed sin, that can cause physical illness:"

Fischer: 'Russia Is Not Being Homophobic, It’s Homorealistic'

Russia recently enacted a reactionary anti-gay law banning the dissemination of "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors."

So, of course, Bryan Fischer wholeheartedly supports it, as he explained to The Voice Of Russia yesterday:

VOR also spoke with Bryan Fischer, head of the American Family Association, who has a different view on the situation.

"Russia is not being homophobic, it’s homorealistic – the Russian government is trying to take the issue into consideration and establish public policy to contribute to public health, as this lifestyle is not be promoted, endorsed or granted special legal protection", the expert said, warning of high health risks linked to this lifestyle.

He cites the Center for Disease Control that has monitored the HIV epidemic since 1987 and determined that 61% of HIV-positive males had sexual contacts with other males.

"Homosexual behavior is just as risky as drug abuse," Fischer said.

"I think the Russian government is right to be concerned with propaganda on teenagers who are at the age of struggling through sexual identity issue and we should help to channel these urges in productive behavior. Heterosexuality is God’s design. Policies that encourage young people to think this are good ideas."

Though same-sex marriages are becoming common all across the world, it doesn’t mean that this idea is popular and everybody supports it, Fischer said.

"Homosexual behavior damages the body and soul. We love homosexuals enough to tell them the truth."

Daubenmire: 'I'm Sick And Tired Of Being Sodomized By The Left'

Sometimes we come across things that really require no explanation ... or rather, they completely defy explanation.

And this new video from "Coach" Dave Daubenmire ranting that he is "sick and tired of being sodomized by the left" is one of those things.

"The worst part of it is," Daubenmire laments, "the left has sodomized men. I'm not talking about physically sodomizing them; I'm talking about stealing men's manhood.  Through what? Through ridicule and through name-calling and through court attacks. Men, godly men, Christian men are afraid to stand up and speak any more because why? They've been sodomized by the left and they've lost their manhood:"

'When All These Chickens Come Home To Roost': Glenn Beck On The Verge Of A Meltdown

Having traveled to Egypt this week, along with Senator John McCain, Lindsey Graham declared that he had not realized how dire the situation was and warned that the country was on the verge of massive bloodshed.

That comment fueled a truly amazing rant to open the show today on Glenn Beck's radio program as Beck spent literally twenty minutes excoriating Graham and mocking him in with an exaggerated southern accent and generally fuming over the state of the world and that fact that nobody has been listening to his warnings. 

"I challenge you," Beck furiously demanded, "for anybody who thinks I'm a nincompoop, I challenge you to find anyone on planet earth who has had the direction and the specifics as right as I have and we have over the last six years. I challenge you! Bring me the names."

"When all these chickens come home to roost," Beck declared, the entire globe will slide into total chaos and America will once again see lynchings in the street:

Klingenschmitt: What Gays Do Behind Closed Doors Is Not Love, It's Lawlessness

On today's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt voiced his outrage that California's anti-gay Proposition 8 was not being enforced, declaring that there was a demonic spirit of lawlessness inside of government officials who are refusing to enforce it.

There is also a spirit of a lawlessness in gays in general, Klingenschmitt asserted, because they are violating God's law. "Lust is not love," he said, "and whatever they're doing behind closed doors is not love in the homosexuality community. It is lawlessness."

He then went on to pray that God would enforce His law so that it will be established "and will ban sodomy" in America, because "it is a perversion and it is not love at all":

Guinness: 'Cultures Where You Have A High View Of Homosexuality Have A Very Low View Of Women'

David Brody, the Chief Political Correspondent for Pat Robertson's CBN News, posted a short video clip on his blog today featuring Christian author and speaker Os Guinness discussing how Christians should respond to the push for marriage equality.

Brody, who laughably considers himself to be a "neutral political observer," highly recommended Guinness' suggestions about "what Christians need to do when it comes to fighting back against the increasing acceptance of homosexuality in American culture," saying that the video was "very enlightening," so we decided to take a look.

After stating that Christians need to show love to gays just as they do to people who are in prison, Guinness asserted that it is imperative that they also start putting forth "positive arguments" explaining why homosexuality is bad for the people involved as well as for society as a whole.

As an example of the sort of convincing argument that he thinks is going to turn the tide in their favor, Guinness claimed that societies that have a "high view of homosexuality" tend to also "have a very low view of women," like in ancient Sparta.

"A lot of people who advocate the Spartan culture; homosexuals, lesbians, gays, and so on," Guinness said, "they forget Sparta was strong on homosexuals but it was very bad on women.  And many of the cultures where you have a high view of homosexuality have a very low view of women. And women whom we love and feminists who we appreciate; do they realize what they're choosing?"

Again, let us note that Guinness thinks that this is an example of the sort of "positive argument" that anti-gay Christians can use to "win people's hearts and minds."

Good luck with that.

A Biblical American History Lesson With Glenn Beck

It was only a matter of time, given Glenn Beck's current obsession with Israel, before he dedicated a program to Biblical history, which is just what he did last night, spending his opening monologue tracing Western Civilization back to the twelve tribes of Israel and explaining that all of our contemporary laws and society are directly rooted in the Kingdom of Judah.

In Beck's telling, following the defeat of the Assyrians, the lost tribes of Northern Israel fled across the Caucus region and settled on the coastlines of Europe where they created Western Civilization and eventually became the Pilgrims that founded America.

"All of Western Civilization," Beck declared, "is based on the laws of Israel and our entire history is directly tied to this moment" before going on the explain that our Statue of Liberty is, in reality, a representation of Moses proclaiming the Ten Commandments.

Does Glenn Beck Even Read 'The Blaze'? Part II

A while back, we wrote a post noting that sometimes it seems like Glenn Beck doesn't even read the reporting done by The Blaze because he asserts things on the air that have been debunked by his own network.

The same thing happened again today when Beck kicked off his radio program by complaining about how the trial of Nidal Hasan is being handled, during which he asserted that Hasan received a military promotion even while sitting in jail awaiting his trial on multiple murder counts:

Of course, Beck's website debunked that claim several months ago, noting that it only required "little cursory Googling" to discover that the claim was false:

A little cursory Googling immediately shows that the article is false. For instance, the full article mentions figures named General William Hewitt and Colonel Nathan Butterworth. No such Army officers exist. In fact, the only General William Hewitt we were able to find is a British army officer.

How could such a story be written, then? Simple: It is not a story. It is satire — a joke. The Duffel Blog is not a news site. Rather, according to its own “About” page, it is essentially a military equivalent to “The Onion.”

...

Even if you don’t find the joke funny, it’s difficult to argue with the basic fact that it is a joke, and there is no “story” to substantiate the rumor. Major Nidal Hassan remains a Major, and his only potential promotion is to the post of “ex-Major.”

PFAW Foundation Remembers Civil Rights Hero Julius Chambers

We here at People For the American Way Foundation are deeply saddened by the passing of Julius Chambers, a trailblazing civil rights lawyer and former People For the American Way Foundation board member.  In the 1960s, Chambers opened what became the first integrated law firm in North Carolina and later went on to lead the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund.  Throughout his life, he fought and won cases on school desegregation and discrimination, including a case on public school integration – Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education– that went all the way to the Supreme Court and paved the way for the use of busing to counter segregation. 

But as the New York Times noted yesterday:

Mr. Chambers’s victories came with a cost. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in Swann, his offices were firebombed. After his successes in 1965, his car was firebombed and two bombs exploded in his home.

His response was defiant; he said he would “keep fighting.”

More than forty years later, during a 2008 PFAW Foundation panel on the future of the Supreme Court, Chambers made it clear that he was still fighting.  He underscored his commitment to “us[ing] the courts to correct the injustices that we see still perpetuated today,” including discrimination against low-income people.

It is not difficult to see why the North Carolina NAACP chapter described Chambers as “a man of tremendous courage.”

A Window Into Bryan Fischer's Worldview

Watching Bryan Fischer's radio program is often like taking a trip into Bizzaro World , as one watches Fischer concoct utterly nonsensical scenarios and then treat them as if they were actual items worthy of discussion when, in reality, all he is doing is providing a window into his oddly warped worldview.

For example, he spent several segments of today's broadcast discussing the purchase of the Washington Post by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos during which he asserted that outlets such as the Post are losing readers and influence because they are not covering real, important news ... like the fact that some bikers held a church service in a bar in Sturgis during Bike Week, which Fischer thinks ought to be "the number one story of the week, I don't care who you are."

Now, the fact that Fischer thinks that that story ought to be the lead item throughout the media is strange enough, but it is nothing compared to his belief that liberals are "scandalized" by the sale of the Post to Bezos because he sells things like Scooby Doo lunch boxes and Barbie Roll-On lip gloss on Amazon. 

Fischer literally spent two minutes bizarrely explaining that liberals think they are so much smarter and better than everyone else and so they are scandalized that someone who sells "plebeian" things like lunch boxes and lip gloss would be taking over one of the nation's elite newspapers:

Minister Leslie Watson Malachi: On Voting Rights, More Bridges to Cross

In response to the Supreme Court's recent Voting Rights Act decision, Rep. John Lewis, the civil rights hero and Georgia congressman, said, "I take it very personally. I gave a little blood on that bridge for the right to vote, for the right to participate in a democratic process."

Klingenschmitt: 'Sell Your Clothes And Buy A Gun'

On his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt cited a claim by a retired Army captain that the government was stockpiling weapons and ammunition for use against American citizens to warn his audience to sell their clothes to buy weapons to protect themselves from the coming government persecution ... because that is what Jesus would recommend.

"I think Jesus would favor the Second Amendment," Klingenschmitt said, pointing to a passage in Luke where Jesus tells his disciples to sell their cloaks to buy a sword.

Of course, according to the Book of Matthew, when Jesus was later arrested, he told his disciples to put their swords away because "all who draw the sword will die by the sword." But Chaps isn't concerned about that teaching, instead telling his audience that "as a Christian chaplain, sell your clothes and buy a gun. It's time. The government persecution will be coming against you and you need to arm yourselves and defend your family when that time comes":

Beck: San Antonio's Anti-Discrimination Proposal Is Just A Bid By Mayor Julián Castro For Higher Office

On Monday night's broadcast of "The Glenn Beck Program," Beck and John Hagee dedicated a segment to railing against a proposed anti-discrimination ordinance in San Antonio, Texas that the Religious Right is convinced would ban Christians from running for office or in any way working for the government.

It is not true, of course, but Beck returned to the topic again last night when he asserted that the filibuster Texas state Senator Wendy Davis carried out against the radical anti-abortion legislation earlier this summer was nothing more than a stunt designed to raise her profile in order to allow her to run for higher office, just as San Antonio's anti-discrimination proposal is an effort by the city's mayor to become Vice President of the United States.

"In this case," Beck said, "the mayor of San Antonio is a Hispanic and he's trying to show Hillary Clinton and all the other Democrats that he is the perfect running mate in 2016."

Because that makes sense, since presidential candidates frequently tap mayors to serve as their running mates:

Fischer Asserts That CIA Director John Brennan Is A Muslim

Earlier this year, the anti-Muslim right seized upon an entirely unverified claim by disgraced former FBI agent John Guandolo that John Brennan, the Director of the CIA, had secretly converted to Islam as part of a Saudi Arabian "counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him."

There was absolutely no evidence to support the assertion other than Guandolo's say so, but that didn't matter as it immediately became a widely believed "fact" among people like Bryan Fischer who, to this day, continues to openly repeat it as if were verifiable and true.

On his radio broadcast this afternoon, Fischer cited another totally untrustworthy story claiming that President Obama would be meeting with high-ranking Muslim Brotherhood officials, which then prompted him to boldly declare that "John Brennan is a Muslim ... He's a devout Muslim, he's a die-hard Muslim, he believes what Muslims believe" despite having literally no evidence to support that claim whatsoever:

Wiles & Tancredo: America Must Turn To God In Order To Free Us From Satan's Trap

Former Congressman and current candidate for governor in Colorado, Tom Tancredo, was the guest on Rick Wiles' End Times radio broadcast yesterday where the two men engaged in a long and convoluted discussion about everything that was wrong with the nation and the world, including immigration reform, terrorism, and even the rise of gay rights.

In the end, both Wiles and Tancredo agreed that the only real solution is for this nation to turn back to God in order to free us from the trap created by Satan:

Tancredo: If this nation returned to God, if some crisis did occur that caused people to turn to God and not to government, we've got a chance under that scenario.

Wiles: That's really where it's coming down to, isn't it?

Tancredo: Yes it is. Yes it is.

Wiles: We're going into a situation that the people are going to have to chose who is their god.

Tancredo: Yes, God or Government.  Boy, no kidding!

Wiles: That's really what it's coming down to.

Tancredo: Yeah, what's the big "G" in your life?

...

Wiles: Whatever you want to call this group of this secret government, whoever is running, with the power, what they've said to the American people ... It's really, at the core of it, it's Satan. I mean, He's working through his people on earth just as God works through people.

But literally what has been said to the American people is we will allow you to enjoy your sins - in fact, we will legalize your sins, we'll protect your sins, we'll encourage you to sin.  In return, you give us your freedom.

Tancredo: Yeah.

Wiles: And now, the American people are caught in a trap.

Klingenschmitt: If You Are Gay, 'Then You Should Be Discriminated Against'

On his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt added his voice to the never-ending Religious Right outrage over a proposed San Antonio anti-discrimination ordinance that would supposedly ban Christians for serving in public office or in any way working for the city.

It is all nonsense, of course, but that didn't stop Chaps from attacking the proposal by saying that gays should be discriminated against ... and citing Martin Luther King to prove it.

Klingenschmitt's line of reasoning was so convoluted that even he couldn't understand it, as he cited MLK's famous "judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character" line to assert that "if your heart is full of corruption or sin or immorality - in this case, homosexuality - then you should be discriminated against."

But then, seeming to realize that the argument he was making that discrimination based on character is justified could just as easily be used against people who are anti-gay, Klingenschmitt ended up tying himself in knots:

"When these confusing statutes now try to redefine discrimination and say that you can no longer discriminate against character ... that anyone who discriminates against character is guilty of discrimination and therefore ought to be discriminated against, they're actually saying Martin Luther King himself ought to be punished for his views, and that's not right."
