Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/16/16

  • Walid Shoebat has some more thoughts on the Orlando massacre: "When it comes to the Orlando case, the news cannot deny any longer that Omar Mateen was a faggot ... This is fag on fag terrorism combined with Islam’s Jihad and the desire for martyrdom. PERIOD."
  • Robert Jeffress says that President Obama's "favorite role" is that of "defender-in-chief for Islam."
  • Anti-Mormon activist Tricia Erickson wants Mitt Romney to shut up and stop criticizing Donald Trump: "He is just still trying to reconcile that he was not elected president of the United States – and he's a narcissist. It's all about him. It's not about our country. And people need to shun this man. The guy needs to go away."
  • The AFA's boycott of Target already has over a million signatures, but the organization is trying to get 50,000 more ... as if that will make a difference. 
  • Finally, ex-gay activist Robert Oscar Lopez says "the gay lobby wasted the gay community's time and their donors' money.  They need to go.": "From Anita Bryant to Scott Lively, the gay lobby has trafficked in hysteria about the mortal threat posed to LGBTs by people who have Christian beliefs, do not approve of sodomy, and think families based on a mother and father with children are for the best.  All those billions of dollars in petty lawsuits, phony shock ads, blacklists, watchdog groups, and sensational legislation, and for what?There is still AIDS.  Domestic violence and sexual assault plague the gay community."

Conservative Pundit: God Is Raising Up Donald Trump To Save America

Right-wing columnist Tricia Erickson thinks that just as “God instructed Nehemiah to erect a wall around Jerusalem” in the Bible, God may be raising up Donald Trump “to accomplish his will” and “protect America by way of building a border wall.”

She writes in WorldNetDaily today that without a border wall, America has been “set up for annihilation,” arguing that “the complete dereliction of the duty to protect them and the American people, at this point, should be a legally actionable offense.”

“Trump, in this case, may be God’s Nehemiah,” she writes.

We learn in the Bible that Nehemiah’s life was an example of leadership and organization. He gave up a comfortable and affluent position in Persia to return to the fractured homeland of his ancestors and united the people to reconstruct Jerusalem’s wall. In the face of opposition, he used wise protection measures for the security of the people. Donald Trump is likewise comfortable and affluent, yet has a zeal and desire to protect America by way of building a border wall.

Walls represent protection. If God instructed Nehemiah to erect a wall around Jerusalem, wouldn’t this same measure be the correct action to take to protect our own homeland? If it was biblical then, how is it not both biblical and the right measure to take now? The people of the United States of America desperately need this same protection for our nation.

We have become a nation of sitting ducks due to unwise leaders and politically (in)correct pundits and speakers who blind our eyes to the reality of danger on the right hands, while their left hands are allowing our nation to be set up for annihilation. Strong words? Yes, but politically incorrect truth!

I believe that building the wall of protection is the single most important act that can be accomplished for the protection of our great nation. Every human being that comes in to the United States of America should be thoroughly background checked. Our borders absolutely must be guarded for the protection of the citizens of the United States of America. And when I look into the faces of my innocent grandchildren, I believe that the complete dereliction of the duty to protect them and the American people, at this point, should be a legally actionable offense.

While I believe that Donald Trump is limping along on his “Christian walk,” I remind even Christians that God has used believers and also non-believers to accomplish his will.

Trump, in this case, may be God’s Nehemiah.

Right Wing Leftovers - 10/30/12

  • James Dobson has endorsed Roy Moore with "enthusiasm and confidence."
  • Mat Staver vows to continue to fight for the Oklahoma personhood amendment.
  • Anti-Mormon activist Tricia Erickson refused to vote for Mitt Romney by "writing in the name of God, because I cannot be right with Him and support either candidate."
  • Gary Bauer has the vapors again.
  • Pat Mahoney and Troy Newman are heading to Ohio to make a "last-minute push for God to remove the most pro-abortion President in America's history."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says "you can read the Constitution from front to back, back to front, upside down, from right to left and hanging from a chandelier and you will find no mention whatsoever of any right to engage in sodomy."

Anti-Mormon Activist Warns 'We Cannot Afford a Mormon Experiment' with Romney

Now that Rick Santorum has dropped out and Newt Gingrich is merely going through the motions, it is all but inevitable that Mitt Romney is going to secure the Republican presidential nomination.  As such, Religious Right leaders have seen the handwriting on the wall and begun lining up to support him.

But not everyone is willing to do so, partially because of Romney's long history of changing his political principles to win office, but also because of his Mormon faith.  As Bryan Fischer made clear yesterday, there is a not insignificant percentage of the Religious Right base that simply will not vote for a "spiritually compromised candidate" like Romney

Similarly, Steve Deace is an influential right-wing radio host in Iowa who endorsed Newt Gingrich but is now struggling with the prospect of having to support Romney.  And while Deace appears to be willing to at least entertain the idea of voting for Romney out of necessity simply because of the issue of Israel, he is equally willing to give air time to vehement anti-Mormon critics like Tricia Erickson to make the case on his program that being a Mormon in and of itself demonstrates that Romney's judgement cannot be trusted:

I think that the leader of the free world, especially in the times that we're in today, we cannot afford a Mormon experiment. We have to have someone at the head of our country with sound judgment. If this man does not have the judgment to be able to discern fact from fiction on the most basic things like the horrifically false religion that he's in. If he doesn't have the wherewithal to understand that he has lived a lie all of his life and continues the lie, then how do we trust the judgment of this man to put him at the head of our country with everything that's going on? I mean, if he cannot even figure out fact from fiction in the way that he's been raised, how can we trust his judgement at the head of our nation?
