Last year, we noted five ways in which Republican leaders were either ignoring or directly contradicting the recommendations put forth in the party’s post-election “autopsy report,” which called for a more diverse and modern GOP with a broader appeal. Today, on the first anniversary of the report’s release, it is clear that those who opposed the plan for a more inclusive party have prevailed, succeeding in moving the GOP even farther to the right.
Republican leaders seem to be accepting — albeit not openly — the pleas of right-wing pundits for the party to embrace ultraconservative views and veer away from outreach to young voters and people of color. These activists have called for the GOP to become a party focused on appealing exclusively to white voters with a mixture of Tea Party populism, Nativism and social conservatism.
This tension within the party has played out the most clearly in the debate over comprehensive immigration reform, in which reform advocates found themselves facing a wall of opposition from vocal activists. Many of these activists used the immigration debate to outline their vision for the party’s future, urging the party abandon immigration reform and instead work to increase its share of the white vote.
The extremists won the debate. The House Republican leadership has refused to even hold a vote on immigration reform and have approved only draconian bills that would curtail the rights of immigrants.
The GOP’s extreme right wing kept the party from taking up immigration reform by putting forward a political strategy argument backed by wink-and-nod racism.
“The people the Republicans should reach out to are the white votes,” Schlafly said, arguing that Latinos are more likely to vote for Democrats over Republicans because they haven’t been sufficiently “Americanized.”
Rep. Michele Bachmann also warned that immigrants will usher in a far-left government that will jeopardize the future of America. Rep. Paul Broun similarly claimed that immigration reform is a plot to “destroy our country” by “keep[ing] Democrats in power for perpetuity.”
Pat Buchanan, true to form, was upfront about the strategy to stop immigration reform and expand the Republican share of the white vote. Buchanan wrote that just as the GOP used the Southern Strategy of racial polarization to win an overwhelming share of the Southern white vote, Republicans should adopt a new strategy “to increase the enthusiasm and turnout among [white voters] for the GOP” by “demand[ing] the sealing of America’s borders against any and all intruders.”
The Center for Immigration Studies, a leading voice on the anti-immigrant Right, also told Republicans no t to bother appealing to the Latino community and instead to frame Democrats as the “party of minorities.”
The GOP has also failed to make good on its promise to appeal to young and LGBT voters by moderating its hardline opposition to LGBT equality.
Last summer, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus reassured the Christian Broadcasting Network that the GOP is not becoming more tolerant and even lauded former governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, a stringently anti-LGBT politician, as “a model for a lot of people in our party” on dealing with social issues.
Priebus was apparently under pressure from social conservatives like National Organization for Marriage founder Maggie Gallagher, who demanded that the party amplify its right-wing social agenda and avoid “adopting a suicidal political strategy.”
While Republican leaders say that the will accept openly gay Republican candidates for Congress, they have not budged on any items important to the LGBT community, blocking even the consideration of legislation to prevent job discrimination or inequality in the immigration system. Republican lawmakers have also pushed bills designed to roll back LGBT rights, such as the State Marriage Defense Act and the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act, and have challenged the Justice Department’s treatment of marriage equality laws.
It seems that the GOP has only committed itself to changing semantics and appearances, but is still committed to the same right-wing agenda that was soundly defeated in 2012.
Right-wing conspiracy theorist Jim Garrow took to Facebook over the weekend to allege that President Obama blew up the missing Malaysia Airlines plane as part of his “jihad” against China.
The Story (or distraction)
So let me get this straight. A fly by wire capable jet goes missing. It is on one course, turns and goes in almost the opposite direction on a heading which would take it to the US base at Diego Garcia. The plane has 20 technology nerds aboard who happen to work for China designing "classified" leading edge computer/internet control software and are carrying the matching hardware with them on the plane. They are heading to Beijing with all the others. We are shown pictures of muslim looking men as if they are on the plane....setting up the expectation that the plane has been hijacked. Convenient story line so far.
While we are down the rabbit hole this far, lets [sic] go all the way. The jet lands by wire at Diego Garcia, the appropriate hardware and software is offloaded as are the nerds. Interrogation proceeds and all the "secrets" you would want to gain from this "intervention" are gleaned from the assets.
You now load everyone back on board the plane and have it take off headed back to where it was supposed to go and at 35,000 ft altitude it implodes/explodes and the debris field is now found. How they missed it in the beginning is a mystery. But the western mindset is already prepared to believe that all things eastern and "Malaysian/Indonesian/Muslim" are barely able to tie shoelaces let alone search an ocean.
So what do you think so far? "Am I right or am I right" spoken in the voice of the nerdy insurance salesman "Ned" in Groundhog Day.
America/Obama gets the information that they want, who cares if a bunch of innocent people have to die (Obama -"I am pretty good at killing people.") and more lies per minute have to fly to cover this huge piece of cow manure over.
Welcome to the world of the marxist muslim amateur Obama and his new found friends, the Chinese. Yes, I did say friends. After all he just gave control of the internet to "the world" and just by happenstance his brother Mark, whose partnership with the intelligence community of China I let the world know about in an earlier missive. Betrayal and treason are the mainstays of this America hating fraud in the Oval office. Hows that jihad coming along Barry?

Yesterday, American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios defended her former guest host Austin Ruse after his comment that liberal professors should be “taken out and shot” caused AFR to cut ties with him. Rios said on her show that comments like Ruse’s are really just “words of life” because they warn people like liberal professors that they will be condemned by God and sent to Hell.
“Austin was talking about the damage that’s being done to innocent children in our culture, whether it’s our children in public schools, whether it’s those of you who handle and mold and shape their minds in colleges and universities,” she said. “If you are in the business of defiling them, of perverting their innocence, of sexualizing them, it isn’t us that condemns you, it’s God himself.”
Rios also said she would have said the same thing as Ruse in private conversations, just not on the radio.
Austin Ruse sat in for me last week, and Austin brings to this microphone such experience and intellect and passion and I love that about him. Toward the middle of the week, he made a statement that was picked up by one of the left-wing posts and it was taken and run with. It was probably an intemperate remark, it reminded me of something I would’ve said, I could’ve easily said what Austin said, I think any of us could. In conversation sometimes we’ll be saying something—I might not say this on the mic—but I would say this to my friends, ‘Just kill me, just put me out of my misery.’ Or I would say something, ‘They should all — they all ought to be all — whatever.’ I think we’ve all in intemperate, uncareful moments of passion said things like that, but you can’t say that at a radio microphone without their being some sort of response to it, so that’s what Austin got, a big wave of negative response.
BarbWire columnist Gina Miller is upset about beer companies dropping their support for St. Patrick’s Day parades that discriminate against gays, warning that “the rapid, head-spinning empowerment of the radical homosexual movement under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is part of God’s judgment on this nation.”
She adds that people and companies who have “caved to the homo-fascist pink fist” need to know that “homosexual behavior is depraved behavior” and will always be sinful “no matter how thick and smothering the black blanket of Sodom and Gomorrah ends up being in the United States.” In fact, Miller warns that gay rights laws are part of Obama’s “brutal tyranny” and their “roots in Hell.”
“Many of us are watching the dark clouds of evil that are rolling across America, and we are saying it’s the Lord’s judgment on a nation that has spit in His holy face by using the force of law to expel all vestiges of Him and His Truth from the public square,” Miller warns. “The Godless human minions of Satan are aggressively working to use the force of law to mandate perversity all across our land, in all our institutions, government, military and corporations.”
Erin go Gay, as they say today! In the latest high-profile example of large companies bowing in subservience to the altar of homosexual debauchery, three major brewing corporations have bent to homosexual intimidation and pulled their sponsorship of the New York and Boston St. Patrick’s Day parades. The makers of Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams beers have all caved to the homo-fascist pink fist, while countless conservatives have sworn never to buy those beer brands again.
The militant homosexual activists wrongly declare that this is about “equality.” That is nonsense. Homosexual behavior is depraved behavior, and it should never be put on the same level as the normal, healthy relationship between a man and wife. The only thing to which homosexual behavior is equal is sin, because that’s exactly what it is and what it will always be, no matter how thick and smothering the black blanket of Sodom and Gomorrah ends up being in the United States.
Many of us are watching the dark clouds of evil that are rolling across America, and we are saying it’s the Lord’s judgment on a nation that has spit in His holy face by using the force of law to expel all vestiges of Him and His Truth from the public square. I firmly believe this is true. I also believe that the rapid, head-spinning empowerment of the radical homosexual movement under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is part of God’s judgment on this nation. Obama himself is part of God’s judgment. Many times in the Old Testament, we have seen the Lord inspire the enemies of Israel to come against it and defeat it when it turned from the Lord. He has installed wicked rulers to impose brutal tyranny on unrepentant people and nations.
No, it’s not at all the kind of law of America’s foundation. It is a strange law, but not a new one. It’s ancient and has its roots in Hell. The Godless human minions of Satan are aggressively working to use the force of law to mandate perversity all across our land, in all our institutions, government, military and corporations. These three beer makers are just the latest to publicly cave.
There is no doubt that America is on a very dark road, and how bad it’s going to get remains to be seen. We are now being ruled by truly evil people with reprobate minds who have nothing but disdain for the God of all creation. The American people themselves, demonstrating their own moral decay, have voted these leaders into office, although I know that ultimately, it is God in His judgment Who has installed these tyrants to rule over us.
Investigators from around the world are still trying to piece together what happened to the Malaysia Airlines flight that disappeared without a trace earlier this month. But not so Pamela Geller.
Geller has been following the story with enthusiasm at her blog, Atlas Shrugged, seizing on every theory that might involve terrorism by Islamist radicals. When it was announced that the holders of two stolen passports on the plane were Iranians, Geller wrote, “an Iranian connection would not surprise me at all. Iran is not afraid of Obama.” When she heard that a Uighur Muslim with flight training was on the flight, she latched onto that.
And now, as investagors turn their attention to the plane’s pilot and copilot, Geller writes that “we are all sitting ducks” unless Muslims are banned from piloting commercial airliners.
Entebbe style hijacking, perhaps? Whatever it is, it’s an evolution in air travel terror.
The Captain disabled the signaling system on the missing Malaysia Airlines jet before he spoke to Malaysian air traffic control, without hinting at any trouble.
How is the TSA going to screen for this? No Muslim pilots? That’s never going to happen. So we are all sitting ducks until the next time.
Not only did Austin Ruse lose his gig guest hosting at American Family Radio after calling for left-leaning professors to be shot, but he has now lost one of the board members of his lobbying organization, the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (C-FAM).
Yesterday, Faithful America launched a petition asking Monsignor Anthony Frontiero of the St. Joseph Cathedral in Manchester, New Hampshire, to resign from C-FAM’s board of directors. Today, Frontiero informed Faithful America in an email that he has resigned.
Besides Ruse, there are now just two members left of C-FAM’s board of directors: John O’Sullivan, a conservative columnist and former aide to Margaret Thatcher, and Robert Royal of the Faith and Reason Institute, a Catholic think tank.
Ruse apologized for his remarks on Friday, but only after going on a diatribe about how he had nothing to be sorry for and was being unfairly smeared by the left.
You can listen to Ruse’s original comments, in which he blamed women’s studies professors for a Duke University student’s decision to go public about her work in the pornography industry, here:
Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera is outraged by the existence of Christian gay rights supporters and is afraid of a plot to "steal Christianity."
During Saturday's edition of Mission America Radio, LaBarbera told host Linda Harvey that columnist Kirsten Powers' opposition to Arizona's "right-to-discriminate" bill is proof of the warning that "there's a huge movement on the left" to "steal Christianity to make it pro-sin, pro-homosexuality."
Harvey agreed and said that people are "sick and tired" of the gay rights movement: "There is no evidence homosexuality is inborn, it's a learned desire and behavior and so we just have to keep standing on that truth and we know tons of people agree. You've had calls recently with people out of the blue are saying, 'I want to be involved,' who have never been involved before. They are sick and tired of it."
BarbWire columnist Michael Bresciani writes today that gay rights advocates and President Obama are paving the way for the emergence of the Antichrist.
In fact, according to Bresciani, the Antichrist leader during the End Times will be a lot like Obama: "Being the incarnation of the Devil himself means that his view is always the exact opposite of God and is always wrong. A perfect type of the antichrist is Barack Obama."
"Gay marriage and abortion, Obama’s preferred social causes, are antichrist in nature," he writes, warning that Obama is pursuing America's "destruction."
Nowadays, anyone calling out the sin is called a hater of the sinner. The lawless then turn to the law to force acceptance of their lawlessness. It is a vicious cycle that leads to destruction.
If you want to lust for those of your own gender you must be protected by the law to do so, and even the suggestion of someone counseling you to avoid the temptation must be silenced. Several states have adopted laws to stop counseling to change the minds of youngsters who are inclined toward their own sex.
The law of God is being sidestepped by popular trends, PC notions of diversity, and the ‘new morality,’ which is only amorality (disregard of all morality) passing itself off under a new name.
Changing the laws is a means of changing definitions of social institutions to remove from life any borders or parameters that define good and evil.
When all of this reaches its peak we will be ready for the world’s last dictator: a ruler long prophesied to come in the last days. He will be called the “lawless one” (2 Thess 2:8 NAS) according to the Apostle Paul.
A ruler who lives without laws may seem like the perfect non-sequitur until it is revealed that the antichrist changes the laws to fit his own view of right and wrong. Being the incarnation of the Devil himself means that his view is always the exact opposite of God and is always wrong. A perfect type of the antichrist is Barack Obama. He rules, but according to — mis-rule.
Gay marriage and abortion, Obama’s preferred social causes, are antichrist in nature. Then there are his anti-American policies such as coddling our enemies, blocking the recovery of our own natural resources, jumping headfirst into the great global warming hoax, allowing government agencies (IRS) to push his political agenda, and the wasting of the lives of soldiers and public servants without anyone answering to the law (Benghazi).
The Bible says that when a nation chooses to ignore its sinfulness, God will not only allow them to go reprobate, but will empower them with rulers who will enable them to succeed in their drive to destruction.
Many of today’s best theologians, preachers and ordinary citizens alike see leaders like Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi as the fulfillment of this Biblical principle.
The first sign that reprobation is making its approach is that behaviors that once made us blush are now celebrated shamelessly. Then we see yet more headlines to confirm that we are well underway in our new, poorly chosen, direction.
In a column today for WorldNetDaily, Colorado gubernatorial candidate and former congressman Tom Tancredo lauded the House GOP for refusing to put immigration reform up for a vote, arguing that Republican intransigence on immigration will have no impact with Latino voters.
Tancredo, a leader of the Nativist movement, even lectured Republicans on how to appeal to Latinos.
"Republicans do indeed need to improve and expand their outreach efforts in Hispanic communities, and they can do so without the baggage of the amnesty debate," Tancredo said.
It was only a year ago that the Republican establishment was enthralled by the so-called bi-partisan “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill, which grants legal status to 15 million illegal aliens and sets them on a path to eventual citizenship. That scenario ended in Sen. Rubio’s repudiation of the deal, followed by backroom congressional maneuvers to plan amnesty by stealth in 2014.
Well, amnesty by stealth is also on the rocks, despite Zuckerberg’s millions, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce drumbeat, an avalanche of insulting lectures from the chairman of the Republican National Committee, a continuous stream of propaganda in the mainstream media and stacked pro-amnesty panels at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference.
Throughout 2013 and into 2014, the Beltway plutocracy had its run of the field in demanding “immediate action” on amnesty. But that game is over. Suddenly, common sense is breaking through the fog of self-delusion that has led the Republican establishment down so many blind alleys.
And what about Hispanic voters? The Gallup poll shows the same pattern as most previous polls going back to 2008. Hispanic voters rank immigration behind jobs, health care and education, which explains why they are increasingly dismayed by Obama’s performance as president.
What does all this mean for 2014 and 2016 elections? It means the Republican establishment should wake up and smell the coffee.
If Republican leaders and Republican candidates will start talking to Hispanic citizens as Americans who have the same hopes and dreams and fears as other citizens, they can and will win increased Hispanic support. Republicans do indeed need to improve and expand their outreach efforts in Hispanic communities, and they can do so without the baggage of the amnesty debate.
BarbWire columnist John Biver announced today that from now on he will describe gay rights advocates as “homo-maniacal,” even including in his column an image, from a post making fun of Jerry Falwell in The Oatmeal, of a giant gay steamroller that is being used to crush people:
Biver took the phrase from fellow BarbWire commentator Jeff Allen.
Earlier this week, Allen authored a column about how gay rights must be defeated like Nazi Germany. Quoting from Winston Churchill’s famous “Blood, Sweat and Tears” speech, Allen said: “That’s the attitude and spirit of a victor, and that’s also why the Allied powers beat the Gestapo then, and we, if we too remain united, can beat the ‘gay’-stapo today!”
Just in case you didn’t get the hint, he included a rainbow swastika flag.
Allen criticized Ross Douthat’s column on how conservatives should react to a Supreme Court decision that legalizes same-sex marriage in all fifty states, and pointed to posts from Mark Joseph Stern of Slate and author John Saul as proof that “the homo-fascists” would “love to sadistically” punish anti-gay activists.
“True American rights and freedoms are being trampled underfoot by the bullies of decadence. The homo-maniacal plans for all traditionalists sound quite unpleasant, not to mention being a clear violation of our First Amendment rights,” Allen writes. “Ah, heck, while the homosexual hordes are busy burning the 'Reichstag,' why not throw in the U.S. Constitution, and the Declaration of the Independence for good measure, as a little more fuel on the ‘gay rights’ fire.”
The Nazi analogies get only more transparent: “It will either be full capitulation to the homosexual agenda…or it will be re-education, incarceration, bankruptcy, marginalization, and state-sanctioned ridicule…or worse…are there any available cattle cars around? That’s what Stern, Farrell and many of their ilk would love to see happen should they get their wicked way.”
Two recent articles written by Mark Joseph Stern (Slate) and John Saul (Huffington Post) reveal what the homo-fascists have in mind and what they would love to sadistically do to those who have been, or still are, in opposition them.
Douthat is either absolutely uninformed or willfully ignorant when it comes to the pernicious aims of the homosexual “movement,” but there is absolutely NO excuse for either of those possibilities. All anyone has to do is to look around, open their eyes, and see what’s happening everywhere across this country with increasing and horrifying regularity. True American rights and freedoms are being trampled underfoot by the bullies of decadence.
The homo-maniacal plans for all traditionalists sound quite unpleasant, not to mention being a clear violation of our First Amendment rights. Ah, heck, while the homosexual hordes are busy burning the “Reichstag,” why not throw in the U.S. Constitution, and the Declaration of the Independence for good measure, as a little more fuel on the “gay rights” fire … since we’re apparently not using them anymore. A scorched earth policy is certainly the order of the day for this new breed of homo-fascists.
There are apparently no plans for some sort of Geneva Convention for the moral non-conformist prisoners-of-war. Little or no mercy will be shown to true Christians and the remaining conservative pockets of resistance. It will either be full capitulation to the homosexual agenda…or it will be re-education, incarceration, bankruptcy, marginalization, and state-sanctioned ridicule…or worse…are there any available cattle cars around? That’s what Stern, Farrell and many of their ilk would love to see happen should they get their wicked way. Chillingly, there are many just like these two Leftist publishers of perversity, and they have the money of Hollywood, the megaphone of the media, the muscle of a rogue judiciary, and the might of a corrupted government to back them up. And Douthat’s cowardly concession will only serve to inflame the anti-morality fascists, as if they needed any more help.
Ultimately, the point is this: Surrender should never be an option for two very abundantly clear reasons. First, there is the unmistakable clarion call of God to uphold and defend his moral and biblical standards in civil society. For history has unmistakably shown that no nation or culture has long remained strong and vibrant after abandoning their moral underpinnings. Second, for those like Douthat who might remotely consider the imprudent possibility of cowardly capitulation, Stern and Saul have made their sinister schemes of subjugation for the Christians and all moral traditionalists abundantly clear, and it isn’t pretty. It’s flat out frightening!
The resolute words of Winston Churchill in his Blood, Sweat and Tears speech, ringing in my ears right now, are quite apropos to the moment at hand:
Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail.
We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;
we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.
That’s the attitude and spirit of a victor, and that’s also why the Allied powers beat the Gestapo then, and we, if we too remain united, can beat the “gay”-stapo today!
Considering all of the heinous plans of the militant homosexuals (above), I for one will certainly not consider conceding a single inch of ground to the abhorrent “gay” agenda. The lovers of God and his truth shall never surrender, no matter what the Douthat’s of the world may say! He might be willing to raise the white flag of surrender, but the faithful followers of Christ will keep His banner lifted high!
Add Franklin Graham to the growing list of Vladimir Putin’s American Religious Right cheerleaders. Religion News Service reports today that Graham defended the Russian leader in Decision Magazine, writing that his law on “homosexual propaganda” is “simply to protect children.”
Graham says that Russia is a better model of godliness and morality than America because of the Obama administration’s “gay-lesbian agenda” that “is contrary to God’s teaching.”
He also defended Russia’s support for Syria’s brutal Assad regime.
“Isn’t it sad, though, that America’s own morality has fallen so far that on this issue—protecting children from any homosexual agenda or propaganda—Russia’s standard is higher than our own? In my opinion, Putin is right on these issues,” Graham writes. “Obviously, he may be wrong about many things, but he has taken a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda.”
He concludes with a warning that the US is entering in its own phase of communism and will experience God’s judgment.
The Olympics were a $51 billion spectacle, but the days leading up to the Games were overshadowed by a controversial issue—a law Putin signed in 2013 to protect minors (children) in Russia from homosexuals promoting their lifestyle. Specifically, the law bans the “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors.”
American media and liberal activists were outraged that the Olympics would be allowed in such an “intolerant” culture. Even though Putin said that gays and lesbians would be allowed at the Olympics, the fact that he took a stand—simply to protect children—ignited a worldwide cultural firestorm. He further explained the law by saying, “We have a ban on the propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia.”
In some ways, the Winter Olympics has become like the Cold War.
Lest we forget, it has not yet been 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the retreat of godless communism. Just a few generations ago, America held the high moral ground.
How the times have changed!
America’s response to Putin’s law was sadly predictable. President Obama intentionally included homosexuals in his official U.S. delegation to Sochi. Then his attorney general stole headlines from the opening weekend with an announcement to the Human Rights Campaign (a major gay-rights group): As far as the federal government is concerned, there is no longer any difference between traditional and same-sex marriage—even in the 33 states that outlaw those marriages.
It’s obvious that President Obama and his administration are pushing the gay-lesbian agenda in America today and have sold themselves completely to that which is contrary to God’s teaching.
I have never heard Putin quote the Bible, but during his 2012 election campaign, he met with church leaders in Moscow and vowed to protect persecuted Christians around the world. That is one justification for his support of the Assad regime in Syria.
Syria, for all its problems, at least has a constitution that guarantees equal protection of citizens. Around the world, we have seen that this is essential where Christians are a minority and are not protected. The radicals in Syria want an Islamic constitution based on sharia law.
Isn’t it sad, though, that America’s own morality has fallen so far that on this issue—protecting children from any homosexual agenda or propaganda—Russia’s standard is higher than our own?
In my opinion, Putin is right on these issues. Obviously, he may be wrong about many things, but he has taken a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda.
Our president and his attorney general have turned their backs on God and His standards, and many in the Congress are following the administration’s lead. This is shameful.
The world used to look to America for moral leadership. But those days are long gone.
Today, we’ve abdicated our moral leadership. We defeated communism, only to relax and see secularism and progressives take over our country. Secularism is as godless as communism. Secularists and progressives have taken over our schools, media, and local and federal government. And it has all happened in the twinkling of an eye.
While still angered by the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to allow openly gay youth to join the scouts, Linda Harvey of Mission America is even more upset by Disney’s decision to end its funding of the BSA because the organization still bans older gay members from serving in leadership positions.
“Yes indeed we know how aggressively the homosexual movement is pushing its views and its behavior on kids and this is one of the most troubling trends in our culture right now, can you imagine how the Boy Scouts will change even more if this happens?” Harvey wondered about the BSA potentially dropping its prohibition on gay adult leaders.
After quoting from an American Family Association statement about how “Disney is sold out to promoting same-sex twosomes,” Harvey urged parents to consider the anti-gay group Trail Life USA.
“Pray friends for our nation’s boys because this corrosive culture has targeted them and these advocates of immorality would love nothing more than to see millions of boys corrupted early,” Harvey said. “That spells disaster for them as men and for America as a nation.”
Perhaps we shouldn’t have been surprised that Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute head Austin Ruse wanted to have liberal and women’s studies professors “taken out and shot,” as he once called for the murder of Hillary Clinton.
Back in 2001, Catholics for Choice released a report [PDF] on Ruse and his lobbying efforts at the United Nations, especially his campaign against the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and the Beijing Platform for Action, which he dubbed the work of “radical feminists.”
The report notes that in a 2000 address to the Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation, Ruse told a story about talking to a Catholic priest about killing Clinton: “Hillary [Clinton] is the ‘conquering queen’ at the United Nations…I was standing on the floor of the UN a couple of months ago, when she was thinking about running, and I was talking to a priest from the Holy See delegation and — I shouldn’t tell you this but he offered me guaranteed absolution if I just took her out — and not on a date.”
Catholics for Choice adds that Ruse sees his conflict with “radical feminists” in “terms of war and attacks and battles”:
Its values and the way in which it promotes them have a negative impact on international policy discourse, especially the efforts of NGOs and governments to work more closely for the development and implementation of public policies on social issues. Perhaps most disturbing is the warlike mindset that permeates [Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute’s] thinking and actions. It is of course very shocking that such a mindset should exist within the Holy See delegation, where, according to Ruse, a priest member of the delegation suggested to him that he should “take out” Hillary Rodham Clinton. It is hard to believe that a member of the Catholic clergy would even joke about such things, but why would Austin Ruse lie about such things?
Suggestions of this kind emerge when groups or individuals see value conflicts in absolutist terms; when they believe God is on their side. The values and ideas of the “other”—who is demonized—need to be crushed. Note how frequently and passionately Austin Ruse talks about this conflict in terms of war and attacks and battles:
My friends, we are in a war….this war is being fought exclusively in quiet and carpeted room at international fora in Rome, Istanbul, Cairo, Beijing, and Rio. I believe one day these place names should be recognized as battlefields just like Bunker Hill, Normandy and Khe San for they are the sites of major battles in this war…
…In the summer of 361 B.C., a Theban general gathered an army of 60,000 freemen, yeoman farmers, a democratic army of citizens…Their victory came almost all at once and their victory rocked the ancient world.
Long under attack by her enemies, the family seems now to be disintegrating all around us….I will focus on one institution with which I am most familiar, the United Nations, an institution that is increasingly at the forefront of the attack on the family.
It was a windowless office where UN negotiators held something called informals...It is the room where the battles are won and lost.
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
There are a lot of problems in America today, and as we all know they are a result of Disney’s “pro-homosexual” agenda, Common Core and ancient Egyptian curses.
5. America Was Cursed By Ancient Egyptians
Did you know that ancient, Baal-worshiping Egyptians came to North America long ago and put the continent under a demonic curse? Well you do now! Just let pastor John Benefiel, who helped Gov. Rick Perry organize his The Response prayer rally, explain:
4. Gay Men Will Turn Women Into Slaves
Anti-gay activist and self-published gay erotic fiction author Robert Oscar Lopez is out with a new warning about gay men planning to turn surrogate mothers into their slaves, which he believes is all part of their sexist approach to women.
“Gestational surrogacy is a dream come true for woman-hating chauvinists who are bound to congregate under such an umbrella: men enjoy all the 'phallic' privilege that the bourgeois patriarchy can provide, and women are put in their place,” Lopez writes in his bizarre post on The American Thinker.
“For some time I have pointed out that the 13th and 14th Amendments are separated by only three years, and therefore the gay marriage proponents ought not to be able to cite the 14th Amendment without addressing the fact that champions of dad-only families seem to clash openly with what’s stated in the 13th against slavery.”
3. Send Common Core Proponents To Hell
As Alabama lawmakers debate the future of implementing Common Core standards, one Tea Party leader told members of the State Senate’s Education Committee that those who vote in favor of Common Core are putting their eternal souls at risk.
Tea Party activist Mia Raven warned that Common Core promotes an “anti-Christian, anti-Catholic and anti-American” curriculum that “include[s] far-left proposals such as acceptance of homosexuality, alternate lifestyles, radical feminism, abortion, illegal immigration and the redistribution of wealth.”
“We don’t want our children to lose their innocence, beginning in preschool or kindergarten, told that homosexuality is okay and should be experienced at an early age and that same-sex marriages are okay,” he said. “Do you want this on your record when you come to the End of Days, knowing the Master Teacher said, ‘As much as you’ve done to the little ones, you’ve done it unto me’?”
2. Stop Persecuting Ben Carson!
Ben Carson has made a career out of delivering speeches attacking President Obama, an impressive feat considering that he’s lost his freedom of speech and is facing Nazi-like persecution. After his speech at CPAC where he warned that the “PC Police” are trying to “shut me up,” Carson told Breitbart News that the United States government is now “very much like Nazi Germany” and that political correctness is “creating a horrible schism that will destroy our nation.” In a separate interview with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, he said that he is losing his First Amendment rights.
Somehow, he continues to keep giving all these interviews and speeches even though he insists that he is losing his right to speak, and will probably continue doing so as long as conservative audiences keep buying his absurd claims and Nazi analogies.
1. ‘Frozen’ Turns Kids Gay
Colorado-based pastor and Religious Right activist Kevin Swanson is warning parents that the hit Disney movie Frozen is actually a demonically-inspired attempt to make their children gay.
Swanson, who has suggested that the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for homosexuality, said that he knows Frozen is turning kids gay because he is most certainly “not a tinfoil hat conspiratorialist.”
During an interview yesterday with WorldNetDaily’s Radio America, Gun Owners of America head Larry Pratt said that “the revolt is underway” against Connecticut’s bipartisan gun safety laws. He added that his group is encouraging gun owners and police officers to refuse to comply with or enforce the law, and is supporting primary challengers to “RINOs” in the Connecticut state legislature who backed the new laws.
Pratt, who recently claimed that politicians should have a “healthy fear” of being shot, said later in the interview that people are “prepared to go to jail” to resist the gun safety regulations. “If you get so many tens of thousands of people saying that [they won’t comply], it becomes rather difficult to imagine how that can happen, especially if there aren’t any police around to arrest them in the beginning,” he said.
Pratt, who has links to white supremacists and is an apartheid apologist, even compared such gun activists to Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks: “I think it’s an American’s right to exercise his conscience, he has to be prepared to take the consequences. Just like Martin Luther King, he exercised his conscience, and Mrs. Parks sat down right in the front of the bus, now she was taken off the bus and escorted away and I think she was put in jail for a bit, so she was prepared to take the consequences. But she had decided ‘no more,’ and the people of Connecticut I think are in the same frame of mind.”
