Beck: Obama's Re-Election is the 'Worst Choice in the History of Our Planet'

The re-election of President Obama has hastened Glenn Beck's full-blown transformation from one-time "rodeo clown" to borderline doomsday cult leader who now seems to spend the bulk of his time warning his listeners that the entire "system" is on the verge of collapse, so they need to take all necessary steps to be prepared ... which, of course, include subscribing to Beck's "The Blaze" network.

And Beck desperately needs subscribers to his network so that it can expand and get the truth out "to anybody who is possibly willing to wake up" because preaching to the choir is just not going to cut it, as was amply demonstrated by the recent election in which "62 million Americans ... made the worst choice in the history of our planet": 

Fischer: Anti-Islam Filmmaker was Sent to Prison for Violating Obama's 'De Facto' Blasphemy Laws

On yesterday's radio program, Bryan Fischer speculated that now that former CIA Director David Petraeus has resigned from his position following revelations that he had engaged in an extra-marital affair, he'd now be free to tell the truth about what happen in Benghazi, Libya and, by doing so, "could bring Obama presidency down." 

The real tragedy, Fischer insisted, about the whole Benghazi issue was that the "completely innocent civilian" behind the anti-Islam film that was initially blamed for setting off riots in Muslim countries has now been sent to prison for violating an "Obama de facto blasphemy law against criticizing Islam, criticizing the prophet":

Of course, the man in question was really sent back to prison for violating the terms of his probation stemming from a bank fraud conviction by "using aliases, fraudulently obtaining a California driver's license under an assumed name and lying to probation officers."

Chick-fil-A Declares War on Christmas

For many Religious Right groups, Christmas is not so much a time to celebrate Immanuel than it is to raise money by fomenting outrage when shops use slogans like “happy holidays.” The American Family Association has a “Naughty or Nice” list to stir up consumers to boycott companies which are “against Christmas” and yesterday Liberty Counsel announced its “Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign,” targeting public spaces which “censor” Christmas and selling their “Help Save Christmas Acton Pack.”

As Jeremy Hooper noted yesterday, it appears that the Religious Right’s most beloved fast food chain, Chick-fil-A, has indeed declared war on Christmas. In their horrific assault on Christmas, the company released a statement celebrating the “holiday season” that doesn’t once include the word “Christmas” and also pushed out a press release about “holiday gift giving,” again failing to mention “Christmas.” Even their online ads are clear affronts to Christmas!

We will wait to see whether LC or the AFA decide to be consistent with their boycott calls and paint Chick-fil-A as the season’s latest Grinch, but we won’t hold our breath, especially since Newt Gingrich, a proud foot soldier in the “War on Christmas,” escaped judgment when his company Gingrich Productions declared war on Christmas, and both LC chairman Mat Staver and AFA founder Don Wildmon endorsed him.

Barber: Gay Marriage is a Weapon Designed to Destroy Religious Liberty

On Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Mat Staver and Matt Barber discussed a lawsuit filed by a lesbian couple against the owners of Liberty Ridge Farms in upstate New York after they refused to allow the couple to hold their wedding on the grounds, citing religious objections. 

For Barber, this was proof that the push for marriage equality is not actually about marriage or equality, but simply nothing more than "a political and legal calculus that is being used as a weapon to destroy religious liberty": 

Joyner: 'Our President, Barack Obama, is a Wicked Man'

Rick Joyner recently hosted a special post-election webinar featuring "prophet" Bob Jones during which Jones declared that Hurricane Sandy and the subsequent Nor'easter that struck the East Coast were God's judgment for legalizing gay marriage while Joyner lamented that, according to the Bible, "our president, Barack Obama, is a wicked man" which means that, by re-electing him, "we sided with wickedness over righteousness": 

Hagee: 'God Will Hold America Responsible' for Re-Electing Obama

Yesterday, John Hagee opened up the "Hagee Hotline" to answer questions from parishioners about the election; questions like "do you believe [President Obama] is the precursor to the Anti-Christ?"  Hagee never really answered the question, simply predicting that an economic crash is coming that will result in the rise of a global economic czar who will, in fact, be the Anti-Christ. 

But as for the election, Hagee warned that "America chose a leader who is for men marrying men" and who is "pro-abortion" and who has "attacked freedom of religion" and so this nation is "about to face the consequences of our choices" because "God will hold America responsible for that choice": 

Beck: Petraeus Scandal is a Conspiracy to Discredit the Military

Last night, Glenn Beck kicked off his television program with a twenty minute explanation of how the scandal involving CIA Director David Petraeus was entirely orchestrated by the White House in order to cover-up the attack in Benghazi, so as to conceal that fact the mission in Libya was itself part of an effort to arm the Muslim Brotherhood for the purpose of implementing a global revolution.

And in order to carry that out, the Obama administration must "discredit the last standing honorable American institution we have": the military ... oh, and the Secret Service too, which is why prostitution scandal from earlier this year was also orchestrated by the White House:

Boykin Longs for the Days of the Draft Because it Might Have Prevented the Repeal of DADT

Yesterday, the Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin was the guest on Frank Gaffney's "Secure Freedom Radio" program where he lamented that there were not a lot of military veterans serving in Congress and that, as a result, things like spending cuts and legislative changes are weakening the nation's defense. 

In fact, Boykin said that "one of the great things about the draft" was that it brought everyone into the military in one way or another and now that it no longer exists, we are seeing things like the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell because legislators "have no concept of what military life is like":

One of the great things about the draft was it brought every community in America into the military in one way or another; a son, a daughter, or a brother or a sister , or a father or whatever. So I think there is a lack of understanding of our military today, that why I think the Congress was so eager to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell because they have no concept of what military life is like.

Fischer: We've Got to 'Clamp Down on Immigration' Because 'Socialist' Hispanics Vote Democratic

In the wake of last week's devastating election losses, Republican leaders and conservative activists are beginning to rethink the party's traditional hardline stance on the issue of immigration.  Sensing that the GOP can no longer win national elections by just appealing to white male voters, conservative leaders have started to suggest that taking a more moderate stance on immigration might help the party make inroads with Latino voters ... but Bryan Fischer is having none of it. 

On Friday's program, Fischer said that America never had a problem with immigration when the bulk of the immigrants came from Europe because they shared our heritage, values, and worldview. But recently, most immigration has been coming from non-European third-world countries where people do not possess the Protestant Work Ethic and expect the government to take care of them. 

In fact, said Fischer, Hispanics do not vote Democratic because of the issue of immigration but rather because "they are socialists by nature" who want open borders simply so that they can bring in their families to "benefit from the plunder of the wealth of the United States."  

As Fischer sees it, there is nothing the Republican can do to ever woo Hispanics away from the Democratic Party ... and that is "one of the reasons why we've got to clamp down on immigration":

Ohio Ministers to Husted: Every Vote Must Be Counted

Cleveland, Ohio – Ohio members of People For the American Way Foundation’s African American Ministers Leadership Council urged Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted to drop his attempt to disenfranchise Ohio voters who cast provisional ballots. Three days after the election, tens of thousands of provisional ballots remain uncounted. Secretary Husted attempted last week to change the rules for counting provisional ballots, making it more likely that ballots would be invalidated, and the rule change is currently being considered by a federal judge.

“Voting is over and most of the races have been called, but this election won’t be completed until every vote is counted,” said Rev. Tony Minor of Cleveland, Ohio Coordinator of the African American Ministers Leadership Council. “Every single person who shows up to vote on Election Day should be confident that their vote will be counted and their voice will be heard. Secretary Husted is trying to throw up last-minute barriers in an effort to stop some of these votes from counting. That’s undemocratic and unacceptable.”

Yesterday, Husted reportedly floated the idea of dividing Ohio’s electoral votes by congressional district in the future, making it possible that the winner of the popular vote in Ohio would not receive the majority of the state’s electoral votes.

“Secretary Husted’s job is to help Ohioans vote and to guarantee that our votes count,” added Rev. Minor. “Instead, he’s fighting in court to suppress this year’s votes, and planning how to make Ohioans’ votes count less four years from now. Sec. Husted should know that every person who turned out to vote in Ohio on Tuesday is invested in our political process, and we will continue to fight for our voting rights.”

Jacobs Claims to have Thwarted Numerous Terrorist Attacks

Self-proclaimed “prophets” Mike and Cindy Jacobs of Generals International continued to spew their predictions about terrorism, natural disasters and economic turmoil on their show God Knows. Jacobs—who previously alleged that she helped avert bombings—revealed that she along with other prophets were having dreams in 2011 about a looming terrorist attack, and explains that their visions were confirmed by the events in Benghazi.

Mike Jacobs contended that there were even more terrorist plots, but that they had been thwarted by “the prayer cover that has been placed over the United States by various prayer groups and individuals praying.”

Perkins: If SCOTUS Legalizes Gay Marriage, it Could Lead to 'Revolution'

While discussing the string of election night victories for marriage equality today, Tony Perkins declared that if the Supreme Court legalizes it Christian conservatives will never accept it because, like abortion, they know that "it's unnatural for two men to be married."   If the Court strikes down the anti-gay marriage amendments passed by various states over overrules the will of the people, Perkins warned that it could lead to "revolution" and "just break this nation apart": 

Pat Robertson takes on 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Televangelist Pat Robertson is stunned by the success of the erotic fiction book, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” asking 700 Club co-host Kristi Watts if she “sees anything in porn that attracts you” or just considers it “boring” like him. Robertson said he is shocked that “Fifty Shades of Grey” is so successful since its author is “a little housewifey-type that doesn’t look like some glamour queen.”

Huckabee: Any Time We Lose 'It's Because Christians Just Didn't Show Up and Vote'

Today, Mike Huckabee appeared on the Focus on the Family radio program to share his thoughts on the election results where he provided a glimpse into the Religious Right's worldview when he explained that any time their agenda does not win at the polls, it is because Christians didn't vote:

I think there were a lot of Christian people who simply stayed home for reasons that I can't figure out. But I think every time we lose major elections or major issues like the same-sex marriage issue or the marijuana issue, it's because Christians just didn't show up and vote.

I lay the blame though at the feet of those who sit faithfully in church each Sunday, they probably heard their pastor talk about the importance of this election and how so much was on the line, and yet maybe because they just didn't want to bother with having to stand in line at an election polling place, they just didn't go vote. And we're going to pay dearly for that.

If I were Cardinal Dolan or any of the Catholic bishops or priests, I would certainly be very frustrated and discouraged and wonder why aren't they understanding that if they join a church and belong to it, why would they not respect its teachings as having validity. It's one thing to say "well, I can't agree with everything" although I'm not sure why you'd join a church if you dismiss it. But to be openly contemptuous of its teaching and doctrine, it's something I can't understand.

According to exit polls, 78% of the electorate identified themselves as Christian, but according to Huckabee, the fact that Mitt Romney lost can only be attributed to the fact that "Christians just didn't show up and vote."  

This is perhaps the most concise illustration we have ever seen of the fact that the Religious Right is fundamentally incapable of comprehending that there are millions of people in this nation who consider themselves to be Christians but who do not share their extremist views or support their political agenda.  

 

Beck: Election Shows that Half of Americans are 'Utterly and Completely Lost in Darkness'

After having had a day to digest the election results, Glenn Beck is no longer mystified by results and the unrecognizable America that surrounds him but now knows exactly what the problem is: half of Americans are "utterly and completely lost in darkness": 

Beck's Post-Election Recommendations: Buy Farmland and Guns!

Today, Glenn Beck sought to make sense of the results of last night's election, beginning with a lengthy, tear-filled monologue about George Washington before getting down a business by rolling out hints about his plans to create an entire Blaze "ecosystem" that will be able to operate independently of the government and existing media structure because everything is about to go downhill ... so people need to start buying up farmland, pull their kids out of the public schools, and loading up on guns:

Beck: 'The Body of America is Even Sicker than I Thought it Was'

After weeks of insisting that the George Washington/Abraham Lincoln-like Mitt Romney would win a landslide victory in last night's presidential election because the Tea Party is just like the Founding Fathers and God would not allow America to fail and have to be destroyed, Glenn Beck and a gaggle of right-wing commentators and activists joined him last night for a live Election Night broadcast on his Blaze TV network.

For the first few hours, the mood was jovial and confident as Beck munched on ice cream to celebrate the breaking of his forty day fast and served up meals to others who did the same.  But then, once the networks called the state of Pennsylvania for President Obama and started eliminating some of the other states that Romney supporters thought would propel his campaign to victory, the mood on set took a somber turn as everyone involved began to realize that all of their hopes and predictions were slowly being dashed. 

And soon all discussion turned to the question of what went wrong, as the mystified participants tried to make sense of what they were seeing, leading Jerry Boykin to declare that the entire election was invalid because some members of the military supposedly were unable to vote and prompting Beck to speculate that America will not survive another decade if conservatives do not gain control over the nation's public education system.

But mostly Beck was just demoralized, saying that the result demonstrate that "the body of America is even sicker than I thought it was" and declaring that he no longer can say that he knows who Americans are:
