Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 9/2/14

  • Todd Starnes, Rick Santorum, Oliver North, Kirk Cameron, and the Benham Brothers are among those scheduled to speak at Liberty University this semester.
  • Scott Lively is running for governor in Massachusetts in order to "restore a biblical worldview among conservatives here in this state and other values voters."
  • It is always worth reminding people that Kimberly Daniels is a sitting city councilwoman in Jacksonville, Florida.
  • Laurie Higgins is predicatbly outraged that Judge Richard Posner did not buy the Religious Right's arguments against gay marriage.
  • Uh oh, creationists have "evolutionists on the run."
  • Finally, Glenn Beck returned from vacation with some smart thoughts on the news that various female celebrities had their private photos stolen and posted on the internet. Just kidding.

  • Ben Carson says that he is "an instrument that’s being used to help restore this country."
  • Peter Sprigg is very mad that judges on the 7th Circuit did not seem to buy the right-wing arguments against marriage equality.
  • Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver is also mad and blames it all on Alfred Kinsey.
  • Gary Cass says it is hypocritical for America to be horrified by ISIS: "In Iraq there are foreign invaders brutalizing and beheading children. In America we brutalize and behead our own children! Surgical abortion is nothing less horrific or less brutal than what we see happening to the children in Iraq, only WE ARE DOING IT TO OUR OWN CHILDREN!"
  • Chris McDaniel made yet another appearance on Bryan Fischer's radio show today.
  • Finally, speaking of Fischer, he delivered another insightful science lesson today when he explained that Jesus is the magic force that holds the entire universe together:

  • Tough guy Todd Starnes tells President Obama that "it’s time to take off the mom jeans and put on some big boy pants."
  • What exactly makes the National Organization for Marriage's Robert George an expert on ISIS and foreign policy?
  • Speaking of ISIS, its rise is all President Obama's fault: "As a human being and a president you are an epic failure: your only contribution, misery.  In a just country mindful of the rule of law, you would be charged with treason and removed from office."
  • Jan Markell disagrees, because she thinks it is really all Jimmy Carter's fault.
  • FRC is going to explain why "Religious Freedom is Good for Business."
  • Finally, the Benham Brothers can't understand how they could possibly be considered anti-woman for opposing reproductive rights since they love their wives and daughters very much.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/27/14

  • Pastor Steve Kern, husband of rabidly anti-gay Oklahoma legislator Sally Kern, lost his own bid for state office yesterday.
  • William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is organizing "71 rallies across the country this weekend to rally support for the nation's beleaguered law enforcement officers and veterans."
  • Mat Staver says the fact that judges keep striking down gay marriage bans is undermining the legitimacy of the judiciary: "When judges begin to cross the line - and I think they certainly do when they have the audacity to say that you cannot affirm the natural, created order of marriage as between a man and a woman - that ultimately undermines confidence of the people in the judiciary."
  • The American Decency Association is targeting Michigan Governor Rick Snyder for agreeing to speak to The Islamic Society of North America because ISNA "is a radical Muslim organization that owns and runs mosques throughout North America, functioning as an 'umbrella organization' and 'clearinghouse' to connect all Muslim activities in the United States."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer spent an entire segment of his radio broadcast today discussing Michael Sam's showering habits.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/26/14

  • Sometimes we wonder if Bryan Fischer just stays up at night trying to figure out ways to troll for attention: "Perhaps the most sinister and dangerous lie the left has beaten into the brains of unthinking Americans is that there is strength in diversity. Nothing could be further from the truth. Diversity, as the first syllable in the word implies, divides. It does not unify. It fractures, debilitates, and diffuses. Energy that could be harnessed through unity of purpose and values is frittered away."
  • Don Feder declares that "Rand Paul’s politically correct spasm over Ferguson should preclude the possibility of Son of Ron getting anywhere near the GOP nomination in 2016."
  • Similarly, Ken Blackwell says that Ben Carson doesn't actually have a chance of becoming president: "[T]o think that you could go right from being a world-renowned surgeon to leading a national government and becoming the leader of the free world is a bit of a stretch."
  • Bill Muehlenberg thinks that people who support abortion rights ought to be forced to "tour an abortion mill, and look at what happens, and handle the remains of a burned or dismembered baby."
  • Finally, Christian apologist Alex McFarland says that, next to the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden, Islam is the worst thing to ever happen to humanity.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/25/14

  • Matt Barber has a message for all those Christians who accept gays: you are apostates and you had better repent before it is too late.
  • Steve McConkey, president of the sports ministry 4 WINDS, is opposed to efforts to eliminate homophobia in sports: "As a Christian I believe homosexuality is a sin. Does that make me a bad person? Will athletes, coaches, and administrators promote other sins besides homosexuality? Athletes should be able to play in sports if they have the talent, but do we need to endorse a lifestyle contrary to the Bible?"
  • Jesse Lee Peterson has the solution to all of America's racial problems: "If whites said 'No,' it would give misguided blacks a chance to examine their hearts and repent of their wicked ways."
  • Patrice Lewis declares that "Feminism long ago left the realm of admirable and entered the realm of evil."
  • Peter LaBarbera wants red state Democrats to "come clean" about their support for gay marriage.
  • Finally, Don Boys is disgusted by all the racists in Ferguson, Missouri, by which he means the protestors: "Trayvon [Martin's] mother along with [Michael] Brown’s mother seems to have the same motivation–to get a pound of flesh and a pot of money when they deserved nothing but scorn for turning a tragedy of a son’s death and the destruction of an innocent man into a farce. Both families are an example of what a broken home and the absence of a strong father with biblical convictions can do."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/22/14

  • James Robison is very angry about all the lawlessness on the part of the protestors in Ferguson, Missouri: "We are experiencing the attempted destruction of life and liberty in our own heartland. It is all-out rebellion against the rule of law."
  • Laurie Higgins defends the firing of a gay church choir director because "both the Old and New Testaments teach that homoerotic activity is profoundly sinful and abhorrent to God. The New Testament teaches that those who engage in homoerotic activity—among other sins—will not see the kingdom of God."
  • Brandi Kay is very upset that "women in suits and loud exultations of the unfairness toward women have ruined life as we knew it. They took the feminine mystique out of the equation. Some of us liked being treated like we were something special, to be treasured by all men."
  • Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, Family Research Council Action, Students for Life of America, and the Susan B. Anthony List are launching a "Summer of Life" campaign is support of legislation that would outlaw abortion after the fifth month of pregnancy.
  • Finally, Glenn Beck begs the world to listen to him before it is too late, because he has been right about everything up until now.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/21/14

  • Scott Lively has qualified to appear on the ballot as independent candidate for governor in Massachusetts.

  • Tim Brown writes on BarbWire that "this entire event [in Ferguson, Missouri] is being orchestrated by the federal government."
  • Finally, "Warning: #IceBucketChallenge Could Kill Babies."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/20/14

  • Get ready because "National Impeach Obama Week" is just around the corner!
  • Glenn Beck can't understand why his followers won't just trust him and get behind his new "love everybody" agenda, especially considering his track record of having been right about everything.
  • Have you heard of Kendra Turner? If not, you will soon as she has now become the latest victim of supposed Christian "persecution" and new darling of the Religious Right.
  • Bryan Fischer thinks that Twitter is censoring images of an American journalist being beheaded in an effort to protect Islam.
  • Speaking of Fischer, journalist Michael Tracey gamely tried to engage him in a legitimate conversation today about the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri but only managed to demonstrate how pointless such efforts are since Fischer refuses to debate in good faith and repeatedly treats right-wing spin as established fact.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/19/14

  • Glenn Beck's entire television program last night consisted of a somber, quasi-documentary featuring David Barton explaining how America is headed toward revolution and/or civil war.
  • The American Family Association continues to target companies that are running ads on Cartoon Network's "Black Jesus."
  • Mat Staver is hopeful that a Tennessee judge's recent ruling upholding the state's gay marriage ban will turn the tide on the issue because "any ruling against natural marriage is a ruling against legitimate state interest."
  • Bryan Fischer explains how "Ferguson proves the Bible is right."
  • Finally, the Catholic League's Bill Donohue knows why people are rioting in Ferguson: "Why is there is no such thing as a winter riot? Because it's cold outside. Quite frankly, it's not fun to riot when it's freezing. Moreover, when the temperature rises, so do the passions. Heat also makes it likely that young men — it's mostly young men — will take to the streets to act out."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/18/14

  • Glenn Beck had a busy weekend, meeting with the Archbishop of Los Angeles as well as Joel Osteen.
  • Religious Right leaders are apparently very worried that none of the possible GOP presidential contenders adequately represent their radical agenda, with the exception of Ben Carson.
  • If we are to believe OneNewsNow, the White House has directly ordered every government facility not to allow televisions to show Fox News: "It's a directive straight from the White House."
  • Larry Tomczak is not a fan of popular culture.
  • Finally, Matt Barber has responded to an article chronicling the radical nature of his BarbWire.com website by insisting that he has "not been affiliated with Liberty Counsel since 2012." That is odd, given that his LinkedIn profile lists him as "Vice President, Liberty Counsel Action," he regularly appears on/hosts Liberty Counsel's daily radio program ... and the Facebook description accompanying the very comment he left on the GLAAD website explicitly says he "works at Liberty Counsel / Liberty School of Law."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/15/14

  • Glenn Beck is very concerned that the plot of the forthcoming game "Battlefield: Hardline" is designed to discredit the Tea Party.
  • Bradlee Dean warns that "Reason is faith’s greatest enemy, and when you walk by reason you make faith obsolete!"
  • The prophet Chuck Pierce has issued a new prophetic message: "The confrontation of the enemy is at hand. You must be filled with praise to enter into that conflict ahead. War is stirring in your midst. War is rising."
  • Disgraced for FBI agent John Guandolo says radical Islam must be crushed: "What stopped the Nazis was we killed and crushed them on the field of battle. What stopped the Communists is we did the same thing on the fields of battle in places where the Soviet Communists were supporting actual warfare ... We need to find the Islamic movement anywhere it is, including in the United States, and crush it and defeat it now."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer was hard at work today crafting the narrative that Michael Brown was a "menacing" giant who was justifiably killed for assaulting a police officer.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/14/14

  • Bryan Fischer has a simple solution to the crisis in Iraq: just kill the leader of ISIS. Gee, why didn't anybody ever think of that before?
  • Once again, FRC prays against gay marriage: "Pray that each member of the 6th Circuit Court will uphold voters in these states, their constitutional amendments, the natural law and the Law of God when they rule. When this matter reaches them, may the U.S. Supreme Court reject the idea that a right to same-sex marriage can be found in the U.S. Constitution and that it overrides the will of the people."
  • Laurie Higgins warns against gender neutral bathrooms: "Their ultimate goal is not to have these special single-stall restrooms. Biological males who wish they were females want to use the female restroom. And they want to compel everyone to participate in a fiction."
  • James Robison says America has one choice: "We can live in freedom under God or in bondage under any other source, which amounts to a modern-day Pharaoh."
  • Mat Staver says that President Obama is now targeting churches but that "with God’s help and the faithful prayers of His people, we can turn back the destruction of our culture by anti-Christian forces. Please help advance the mobilization efforts of pastors and patriots now – in advance of the 2014 elections."

  • Tony Perkins, Rick Scarborough, Mike Huckabee, Sen. Ted Cruz, and the Benham Brothers will all be teaming up for a "Star Spangled Sunday" event on September 14.
  • Jennifer LeClaire has a warning: "Satan's army is highly organized and his human followers are rallying the troops. Satanists are actively working to get monuments erected to the false god they serve even while others kill in his name. The prince of the power of the air is no longer willing to work behind the scenes in our media. He wants a place of prominence in our culture."
  • According to Gordon Klingenschmitt, not putting Bibles in hotels located on Naval bases is "a violation of every sailor's right" to have a Bible.
  • Lee Duigon proclaims that "the teachers’ unions, the homosexual activists, the atheist militants, the abortion fans who chant 'Hail, Satan,' and the statist schmucks who staff 'human rights' agencies really are the enemy."
  • Finally, when you own your own network like Glenn Beck does, there is nobody who can tell you not to spend an entire segment of your radio program delivering a teary-eyed monologue in between verses of "America The Beautiful."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/12/14

  • Tony Perkins is furious that the National Republican Congressional Committee is supporting three gay Republican candidates.
  • Speaking of Perkins, he, Anne Graham Lotz, Richard Land, and others will be heading to Israel next week as part of a "Christians in Solidarity with Israel" trip being sponsored by the National Religious Broadcasters.
  • Allen West headlined last night's Family-PAC fundraiser (the AFA's Sandy Rios is the PAC's VP.)
  • It is nice to see other right wing "historians" mindlessly repeating David Barton's nonsense: "In fact, George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, both signers of the Constitution, pointed to Jeremiah 17:9 as an underlying principle for the separation of powers provided for in that document."
  • Do you suppose that Comcast's refusal to carry Glenn Beck's The Blaze network might have anything to do with this campaign he has started to oppose the company's merger with Time Warner?
  • Finally, James Robison has had enough! "Call me any name you wish. Put any misrepresentation or so-called 'politically correct' label on me—but I am declaring America is being encouraged to believe and embrace lies…to support them, to cast aside our founders’ principles—including God’s Word and eternal truths—and submit to the bondage of an out-of-control state. The federal government and deceived representatives are forcing legislation, policies, and practices on American citizens, demanding that our tax dollars—our money, which God has trusted to our watchcare—be used to support worthless, godless, freedom-damaging policies, programs, and laws. This nonsense—this insanity—has to stop…and stop now! Americans must come to their senses and reject this idolatry. We must refuse to bow to any false god or to trust it as our source. Not Pharaoh, not Saul, not Nebuchadnezzar, not Babylon, not Rome, not emperors, not kings, not monarchies, not Washington or Uncle Sam. Only God!"

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/11/14

  • Ralph Reed tells Gordon Klingenschmitt that his Faith and Freedom Coalition will be bigger than the Christian Coalition in its heyday and is currently signing up a thousand new members a day.
  • A good question: "Is Deadly Ebola Outbreak the First Bowl of ‘Revelation’ Judgment?""
  • Focus on the Family's Bruce Hausknecht is hopeful that the Supreme Court will redeem itself and restore its credibility by refusing to recognize gay marriage when it finally gets a chance to rule on the issue.
  • Finally, Peter LaBarbera is not happy that President Obama made a video appearance at the Gay Games: "Obama couldn’t care less what God and the Bible say about sodomy. But no matter how cool the Left and ‘gay’ activists try to make homosexual behavior, it will always be detestable in the eyes of our Creator."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/8/14

  • Concerned Women for America laments that more and more courts have found “that a fundamental right to marry encompasses the right to same-sex ‘marriage.’”

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/7/14

  • Rand Paul first said he fled an encounter with a Dreamer activist because he had to go to an interview, but now he claims it was because he’s “not interested in being filmed and berated by people who broke the law and are here illegally to try and convince me about policy.” 
  • Tea Party groups join the purported Democratic conspiracy to impeach Obama!

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/5/14

  • Steve Deace mocks John Boehner: “I guess all the Tea Party leaders I’ve had on my nationally syndicated radio show calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment the past 16 months were tools of ‘a scam started by Democrats,’ and they didn’t even know it.” 
  • Todd Starnes BURNS President Obama: “President Obama wrote in an op-ed for McClatchy News Service that we have a moral obligation to support Africa's progress. What about supporting America's progress, Mr. President?”

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/4/14
