Paranoia-Rama: Gays Invading Disney World, ObamaCare Worse Than 9/11, 'Very Evil' Sex-Ed

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

As Pride Month begins, we watch in horror as “the Stormtroopers in the homosexual movement” bring back slavery and let gay people vacation at Disney World.

5) Warning: Gay People Are Going To Disney World

Fearing that families may have to see or encounter gay people on their vacations, Religious Right activists are pushing fears about the upcoming “Gay Day at Disney.”

One Florida-based conservative group, the Florida Family Association, hired planes to fly over Disney World with banners alerting tourists, “Warning: Gay Day at Disney.” An article from the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow was similarly titled: “This is your final warning: ‘Gay Day’ this weekend at Disney World.” David Caton of the FFA told OneNewsNow that the event would be used to “promote the homosexual lifestyle.”

Doing her part, Janet Porter of Faith 2 Action warned on her radio bulletin that “the homosexual agenda is planning to once again descend on Disney World” and “expose your children” to “cross-dressing men [who] will be among those parading public displays of perversion.”

4) Gays Are New Slave Masters

Even if you survived “Gay Day at Disney,” you might still fall victim to the new gay slavery, at least according to Bryan Fischer.

“Apparently someone forgot to tell the Stormtroopers in the homosexual movement about the Civil War, the Civil Rights Movement, and freedom of both will and conscience,” Fischer wrote this week in reaction to an anti-LGBT discrimination case in Colorado. “The leaders of the Gay Gestapo have become our new slave masters. They can now send us to the hole if we refuse the massa’s demands.”

“So meet our new overlords, the new owners of the American plantation, the gay mafia. All hail Big Gay, our new slave masters,” he added.

Believe it or not, Fischer’s slaver rant wasn’t even the most outlandish reaction to the Colorado case. That honor goes to the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins.

3) ‘Shooting’ Is A Liberal Media Conspiracy

It’s not uncommon for a National Rifle Association spokesman to attack the media — after all, NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre once asserted that “the media in this country hates the Second Amendment rights of American citizens and they’ll do anything to try and take that freedom away from average citizens.”

But an NRA News video released a week after the Isla Vista massacre took these attacks on the media to an absurd new level.

In a rant that could easily be mistaken for a parody, NRA commentator Dom Raso attacked the media for using the word “shooting” to describe…shootings.

The media “race to label anything with a gun as a shooting, because they know how much more attention they are going to get with that word,” Raso said, claiming that the use of the word “shooting” was part of a strategy to shift attention away from the shooting’s perpetrator. “Evil is the problem; the tool is irrelevant and stories designed to make you think anything other than the truth are propaganda,” he said.

Just to drive the point home, Raso’s commentary begins with an image of Vladimir Lenin.

2) ObamaCare: Worse Than 9/11

Last year, leading conservative activist Ben Carson told the Values Voter Summit that “Obamacare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery, and it is slavery in a way.”

But it turns out he was just getting started with his sweeping Obamacare criticisms: In an interview with The Daily Beast this week, Carson said that Obamacare is worse than the September 11, 2001 attacks “because 9/11 is an isolated incident.”

Anyone who disagrees with his assessment, Carson explains, just doesn’t read enough: “You have to take a long-term look at the ascent of something that fundamentally changes the power structure of America. You have to be someone who reads. Who is well-read. I want you to go back tonight. I want you to pull out what Saul Alinsky says about health care under the control of the government.”

Naturally, a spokesman for Carson, conservative talk radio host Armstrong Williams, denied that Carson ever “said Obamacare was worse than 9/11” even though The Daily Beast simply quoted Carson verbatim and posted a recording of the interview.

1) Sex-Ed A Democratic Party Plot

Sorry, the jig is up. Conservative education activist Marjorie Holsten this week revealed the truth about teaching sex-ed in school: It’s all about turning kids into Democratic voters.

As Holsten told End Times broadcaster Jan Markell, Democrats are pressing schools into teaching sex-ed because they know “that when children are desensitized to sexual things, that affects their ability at a later date to bond with a spouse. And so if you have somebody who can’t bond, they’re not going to have a stable marriage. When you have unstable, broken households, how do they vote? Democrat. So this has a very evil underlying intent.”

Holsten recommends that instead of sex-ed, children learn about the birds and the bees by watching guinea pigs have sex. Seriously.

Behold Wayne LaPierre's Nightmarishly Paranoid Vision Of America

There are few regular CPAC speakers who can match the NRA's Wayne LaPierre when it comes to peddling wholesale paranoia and nightmarish visions of the future as he did while speaking today when he warned that neighborhood streets that were once filled with laughter and freedom now sit ominously silent because Americans are in fear for their lives, which is why they are loading up on all the ammunition and weapons they can get.

"In the world that surrounds us," he proclaimed, "there are terrorists, and there are home-invaders, drug cartels, car-jackers, knockout-gamers, and rapers, and haters, and campus killers, airport killers, shopping mall killers, and killers who scheme to destroy our country with massive storms of violence against our power grids or vicious waves of chemicals or disease that could collapse our society that sustains us all."

"Do you trust this government to protect you?" LaPierre asked the crowd, which responded with a resounding "no!"

"We are on our own. That is a certainty":

Paranoia-Rama: This Week In Right-Wing Lunacy - 12/13/13

In this edition, we learn that homosexuality is as contagious as the common cold, public schools are pushing homosexual/Islamic indoctrination and that President Obama may be behind the death of a state official involved in the release of his birth certificate. And no, there is absolutely no evidence to actually support any of this.

ALEC Experiences ‘Donor Exodus’ Following Trayvon Martin Tragedy

Apparently not all press is good press, after all.

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) documents recently obtained by The Guardian show the popularity of ALEC, an organization that connects corporate lobbyists with state legislators to push special interest legislation, to be in sharp decline.  In the wake of the national outcry surrounding Trayvon Martin’s death, ALEC saw both its corporate and state legislative membership drop in numbers – experiencing what The Guardian describes as a “donor exodus.”   

That’s because among the many damaging pieces of legislation ALEC has pushed over the years are “Stand Your Ground” laws, which became a cornerstone of the national conversation about the Trayvon Martin tragedy. Drafted in part by the National Rifle Association, ALEC promoted these types of laws as “model legislation.”  But some legislators and corporations – including Kraft, Coca-Cola, Amazon, and more – decided they didn’t want any part of it.

Ed Pilkington and Suzanne Goldenberg report:

The Guardian has learned that by Alec's own reckoning the network has lost almost 400 state legislators from its membership over the past two years, as well as more than 60 corporations that form the core of its funding. In the first six months of this year it suffered a hole in its budget of more than a third of its projected income.

For forty years, ALEC has helped advance bills that hurt everyday Americans, and PFAW works with allies like the Center for Media and Democracy to expose their extreme agenda. 

If you’re in the DC area, you can join us this Thursday for a “DC Stands Up to ALEC” rally to make clear that it’s not only legislators and corporations who have had enough of ALEC – it’s the American people.

Ted Nugent Blames Liberals And Welfare Programs For Gun Violence

National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent knows the real culprit for gun violence: welfare programs. In his latest column, Nugent that the “social welfare programs designed, engineered and promoted by liberals have wreaked havoc on black families across America” and encouraged “urban street rats.”

“Don’t hold your breath waiting for the president or any other liberal to tell you this,” Nugent laments. “That would be blowing a huge truth hole in the liberal lie that continues to wreak havoc on urban America.”

Even with the overwhelming majority of murders being committed by gangbangers, according the central planners in D.C., it surely must be the NRA that is at least partially complicit because they fight against the central planners’ “common-sense” gun control regulations.

Rarely do you hear the president or his hapless vice president blame the murders and mayhem on those who pulled the trigger. Instead, they blame the NRA, institutional racism, the GOP, global warming, Wall Street bankers, spotted owls and adrift polar bears. The ugly truth is that urban street rats are responsible for the nightly shootouts in every large urban area in America.

If Mr. Obama wants to blame something for this other than the punks who pulled the trigger, he might want to inform America that for the past 50 years social welfare programs designed, engineered and promoted by liberals have wreaked havoc on black families across America.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the president or any other liberal to tell you this. That would be blowing a huge truth hole in the liberal lie that continues to wreak havoc on urban America.

America has been punked.

Nugent: Obama Like A Crack Addict

Ted Nugent compared President Obama to a crack addict and an alcoholic during an interview yesterday with conservative radio host Lars Larson. After attacking Obama for “violating his oath, violating the basics of America, the basics of ‘We The People,’” the NRA board member said Obama reminds him of a “criminal son or daughter asking for more allowance so they can buy more crack.”

“Their spending ways can only be described as a drunken idiot, the waste, the corruption, the fraud, the deceit, the abuse of power, it breaks my heart.”

Beck Demonstrates The NRA's Commitment To Safety

Glenn Beck broadcast his television broadcast last from Houston, TX where is he in town to speak at the annual NRA convention. Prior to telling his audience that the shooting that occurred earlier that today at the Houston airport was a false flag "set-up" tied to the "uber left," Beck was extolling the virtues of the NRA and the organization's dedication to gun safety.

In making the point, Beck pointed to a table full of historical weapons he had gotten from the NRA museum that he is going to be using in his speech tomorrow and recounted how, all day long, NRA staff had been reminding him how to safely pick up and hold a firearm, all of which Beck said he already knows because he took a NRA safety course.

In fact, the NRA is so concerned about safety that staffers even taped a large "T" on the wall of the auditorium to mark the spot at which all of the guns lying on the table were pointed, signaling that nobody should ever be standing in that area.

But when Beck went to point it out, he first had to ask one of his staff members to move ... because she was standing right in front of it:
