Leftovers

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/28/15

  • BarbWire's Gina Miller laughably defends the American Family Association as a "peaceful Christian organization" that is being smeared with "damnable lies."
  • Newsbusters also tries valiantly to distract from Bryan Fischer's well-documented history of unmitigated bigotry by conveniently ignoring it entirely.
  • Sam Rohrer of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network is very excited about "the number of potential [Republican presidential] candidates who profess what he calls an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ."
  • Shocklingly, Rick Santorum's claim that all of the jobs created since 2000 have gone to immigrants turns out to be false.
  • Pamela Geller declares that "the vicious Jew-hating rhetoric coming from the White House is unusual even for an anti-Semite like Obama."
  • Finally, Glenn Beck is apparently so devoid of vision for his network that he has now been reduced seeking advice from his Facebook followers on what sort of shows he should be making.

  • Mike Huckabee will be participating in an event that David Barton will be hosting at Lancaster Bible College in Pennsylvania in March.
  • Huckabee will also address a luncheon for Allen West's National Center for Policy Analysis in February.
  • David Barton knows how to save America: "We need to fill our school boards, city councils, public utility districts and other city and county positions with common-sense, God-fearing, Constitution-heeding individuals."
  • Tea Party Nation declares that "the state of New York has inflicted many indignities on the United States.  But perhaps none is worse that the current junior Senator from the Empire State.  Kirsten Gillibrand is not simply a terrible Senator.  She is a terrible person."
  • Finally, remember the story about the Missouri middle school student who was supposedly told that he was not allowed to read his Bible in school that was almost immediately debunked? Gordon Klingenschmitt just repeated it on his latest "Pray In Jesus Name" program.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/26/15

  • David Lane declares that "The Idol of Secularism Must be Toppled": "Secularism — the false idol instituted by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1963 —- has finally bloomed, blossomed, and produced fruit, it's stench is nauseating."
  • Speaking of Lane, he recently reminded CBN's David Brody that he is not a pastor but rather a full-blown right-wing political activist who is working to get a thousand pastors elected to public office.
  • Scott Lively warns that America must not accept any Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage: "[S]ilence equals death to marriage, and by extension to Christian civilization."
  • Rep. Louie Gohmert is positive that the Obama administration is persecuting David Petraeus in order to keep him from providing "devastating testimony" on Benghazi to Congress.
  • Finally, Matt Barber explains, using logic, that "gay marriage is Satanic."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/23/15

  • Bert Farias declares that churches that open the door for "homosexuality and perversion" will be "considered the chief prize of Satan and potential trophies of hell."
  • Religious Right activist Rob Schenck of Faith and Action called upon fellow anti-abortion activists to also take a stand against gun violence. Not surprisingly, that does not include any support for gun control efforts.
  • Janet Porter laments that nobody ever stops to ask God, "How is your day? How do you feel? How can I make it better?"
  • Bill Muehlenberg says that witches are real, but that doesn't mean they should be put to death as the Bible commands because "obviously not everything found in the Old Testament carries over into the New."
  • Finally, Mike Huckabee brags that people who bundled money for Mitt Romney and John McCain in previous elections "are now coming to me and saying ‘we think you can win.'" Well those people obviously have a great track record!

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/22/15

  • Predictably, Jonathan Cahn thinks that President Obama's State of the Union speech is just another sign that God's judgment upon America is just around the corner.
  • Michael Ware explains that the government must give Christianity preferential treatment because "it is absurd to demand that all ideas or beliefs are equal, it leads to the absurd. Only truth from Scripture is valid and can save us from such absurdity."
  • The AFA's Buddy Smith is hopeful that cities across America will follow the lead of Starkville, Mississippi, and begin repealing their anti-discrimination laws protecting gays: "We're still a nation of people [that has] a core that shares a Christian worldview, a core of people who share this core of beliefs that a Christian worldview is what's best for our nation, and sin is still sin and it's okay to oppose it."
  • Erik Rush says that President Obama "has committed serial treason and is being shielded from the consequences of his actions by corrupt and compromised elected officials."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer encourages churches to change their bylaws, as his church is doing, to declare that they will never accept gay marriage: "We believe that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one's sex, or disagreement with one's biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/21/15

  • Glenn Beck and crew spent last night's State of the Union Address providing sarcastic commentary so that viewers "got to hear just how awful it was in real-time, as it happened." 
  • If we were petty right-wing pundits, we'd ask how Ted Cruz can ever expect to run this nation effectively as president when he can't even manage to post a simple State of the Union response? 
  • Phyllis Schlafly calls upon Congress to "enact laws denying funding and withholding jurisdiction from enforcement of any redefinition of marriage by the federal judiciary."
  • The American Family Association has now launced a companion organization to its OneMillionMoms called, appropriately enough, OneMillionDads.
  • Gov. Bobby Jindal has invited the nation's 49 other governors to join him at this weekend's prayer event.
  • Finally, Gary Cass warns that the "Spiritual State of the Nation" is dire: "A small but militant minority is hell bent on destroying all vestiges of our Christian heritage. Marxist / Secularists have prosecuted their 100 year Cultural Jihad to infiltrate the media, education and politics, especially the courts, and impose their secular fundamentalism. The election and re-election of Barack Obama is sobering proof of their formidable influence."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/20/15

  • Robert Gagnon wants it made very clear that homosexuality is actually way worse than most other sins, even incest.
  • Bret Baier reveals that he cancelled his scheduled speech to an anti-gay group at the request of Fox News.
  • Michael Bresciani warns that it will be the end of America is the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage: "I can say without reservation, that if marriage is perverted in this way, you have only one thing left to do – count time, for there is very little left to promise and guarantee the survival of our nation."
  • Yesterday, Tony Perkins delivered his "2015 State of the Family Address." Guess how he thinks it is doing?
  • Mark your calendars because Todd Starnes is hosting a weekend retreat in October!
  • Finally, Glenn Beck's co-host Pat Gray received an "Award of Merit" from the Utah Eagle Forum this weekend because he has had an "incredible influence [on] Glenn Beck’s life and that influence has had a significant impact for good on so many of us right here in this audience as well as the United States." So now we know who to blame for Glenn Beck.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/16/15

  • Contrary to right-wing claims, there are not hundreds of Muslim-controlled "no-go zones" all over Europe.
  • Gov. Bobby Jindal apparently doesn't actually care about the truth, which is why he is reportedly set to repeat this myth when he speaks in London on Monday.
  • BarbWire's Gina Miller declares that "the only rational conclusion is that this [President Obama] is an enemy of the United States."
  • Ben Carson is expected to officially launch his presidential exploratory committee in the next few weeks.
  • Finally, while most of the other speakers have dropped out of the Legatus conference after learning of the organization's anti-gay views, Gov. Jindal is still scheduled to speak and Peter LaBarbera is urging anti-gay activists to thank him for not capitulating to the "Gay Thought Police."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/15/15

  • The RNC has voted to censure David Agema for posting an article from a white supremacist magazine on his Facebook page.
  • Sure, CAIR immediately denounced the Charlie Hebdo attack, but Michael Brown doesn't believe them.
  • Finally, a cell phone service "for conservatives, by conservatives."
  • Mike Huckabee has no qualms about associating with the anti-gay bigots at the American Family Association judging by the fact that he called into the "Today's Issues" radio program this morning to promote his forthcoming book.
  • Rick Santorum also obviously has no qualms about standing with anti-gay bigots, as he'll be speaking at Liberty Counsel's "Awakening 2015" event in March.
  • Finally, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt laughably insists that his role as a demon-hunting anti-gay exorcist will have no impact on his work as a Colorado state legislator: "I'm one person, but I might wear two hats. And my weekend job, what I preach on Sundays, is not necessarily related to my day job, which I do Monday through Friday here in the state legislature."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/14/15

  • If Mitt Romney had been elected president, "there wouldn’t be an ISIS at all."
  • Michael Youssef compares the firing of Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran to ISIS: "To terminate someone's employment and deprive them of their livelihood? That is something worthy of ISIS. Members of ISIS may chop off the heads of Christians, but to chop off someone's voice or identity originates from the same desire for control through cruelty."
  • Tim Brown opposes allowing Rep. Andre Carson to sit on the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence because he is a Muslim.
  • Cliff Kincaid is not happy that Fox News' Bret Baier has dropped out of a speaking engagement before an anti-gay group: "The only possible explanation is that the homosexual lobby is so powerful that even the mighty Fox News cannot stand up to the pressure it can generate."
  • Bryan Fischer is likewise displeased: "It is impossible to remain neutral in the culture war on the issue of homosexuality. You are either with God on the matter or you are not."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/13/15

  • Mike Huckabee will headline Liberty Counsel's "The Awakening 2015" event in March.
  • Rep. Randy Weber has apologized for his bizarre tweet comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler.
  • The folks over at Free Republic are not happy with Glenn Beck's warning about creeping "heterofascim" in Russia.
  • David Lane fumes: "The grandiosity and recklessness of the radicalized, secular United States Supreme Court in the last century is mind-blowing. The Court has birthed a full-scale catastrophe, corrupting 500 years of natural law and threatening America's long-term, sustainable freedom."
  • Jan Markell warns that "we're setting ourselves up for an attack. It's going to happen because the Islamic terror world knows America does not have a president who will either protect us or fight back."
  • Finally, Kirk Cameron's "Saving Christmas" movie was such a "hit" that he's now released "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas Blend" coffee. Seriously.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/12/15

  • "What an honor!" former Rep. Michele Bachmann declared upon learning that she had been named WND's "2014 Lawmaker of the Year."
  • A federal judge has struck down South Dakota's ban on gay marriage.
  • Tom Tancredo declares that "we must stop all immigration of Muslims into the United States – yes, ALL Muslims – and then deport those already here who adhere to Shariah law."
  • J. Christian Adams has a simple solution for stopping terrorism: "People who are engaged in the business of Islamic terror should spend the rest of their lives behind bars, period."
  • Finally, there is no small irony in the fact that Glenn Beck is heaping praise upon "Selma" considering that had Beck been active during that time period, he probably would have spent every show screaming about how Martin Luther King Jr. was the most dangerous man in American history.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/9/15

  • Mitt Romney apparently thinks the third time will be the charm as he contemplates making yet another run for president.
  • Pamela Geller says that "either Obama is not-so-secretly a jihad sympathizer or he’s a believer. It’s one and the same."
  • Peter LaBarbera is calling upon anti-gay activists to support former Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran by buying copies of Cochran's book.
  • Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values says that gays may claim they just want marriage equality but when they get it, they use it "as a battering ram against Christians and Christian-owned businesses."
  • Finally, Bill Donohue has a simple solution to all of the world's problems: everyone should become Catholic.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/8/15

  • Rick Santorum believes that he uniquely possesses the ability to unite all of America and that is why he will become president.
  • According to Bob Ellis at BarbWire, Jeb Bush's wishy-washy statement on gay marriage in Florida "has provided all the proof needed that he is completely and totally unworthy of even being a Republican nominee, much less President of the United States."
  • Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett is demanding that Muslim groups specifically denounce passages from the Quran that he doesn't like.
  • Gary Bauer says that "the brutality of this attack [against Charlie Hebdo] cannot be understated." That doesn't make any sense. We assume he means "overstated."
  • Finally, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire says that future generations will wonder "how could a man with three Muslim names be elected President of the United States in the midst of the greatest surge of Islamic extremism in the history of America?"

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/7/15

  • While condemning the massacre at the office of the French newspaper Charlie Hebdo, Bill Donohue nonetheless insists that those who were killed were at least partly responsible for their own deaths because they intentionally insulted Muslims.
  • Some typically solid "journalism" from CBN's David Brody: "I have one word to sum up Mike Huckabee: 'Reaganesque.'"
  • Cliff Kincaid fumes that the 1969 Stonewall riots are now considered to be an historic turning point: "The idea of having sex with children, in addition to anti-police violence, has been part of the homosexual rights movement in the United States all along. This is what 'Stonewall' has come to represent. Obama wants the taxpayers to sponsor this 'celebration' of perversion. Our first president, George Washington, who court-martialed sodomites and kicked them out of the revolutionary army, must be turning over in his grave."
  • There is an effort afoot to get a professor at a Christian university fired because he is pro-choice. Oddly, we don't hear anyone in the Religious Right screaming about this supposed "persecution."
  • Finally, James Dobson is terrified about the damage President Obama can do in his final two years in office: "What we have seen to this point is federal funding for abortions (despite promises to the contrary), amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, open homosexuality in the military, women in every aspect of combat, the undermining of traditional marriage, a steady assault on religious liberty, universal health care and rationing of essential treatment for older Americans, and dozens of other imperious policies. When Barack Obama was a candidate for the highest office in 2008 and after, he promised to 'fundamentally transform' this nation. Now we see what he had in mind. History tells us that nations before us have grown weak and faded away, usually related to poor leadership. Is this where our President is leading us?"

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/6/15

  • Glenn Beck lit into Rep. Chris Stewart for “losing [his] soul,” and by that he means supporting John Boehner as speaker.
  • Todd Starnes lashes out at Rep. Trey Gowdy for backing Boehner’s successful re-election, lamenting: “President Obama has his lap dog -- and the American taxpayers have been shown the dog house.”

  • Matt Barber says gay marriage is "evil" and he is willing to lead the fight against "homofascism."
  • Laurie Cardoza-Moore's documentary on Israel has been nominated for an "Emmy." Of course, OneNewsNow never bothers to explain that is it just a local Emmy.
  • Kansas will keep its "dual track" voting system, at least for now.
  • Finally, Scott Lively says the attacks on Bill Cosby are part of a plot to "manipulate Whites into giving up on Blacks."

  • Matt Barber boldly announces that he is "no longer a Republican." Oh no! How will the GOP survive?
  • Anyone who actually believes that Glenn Beck has changed has obviously not been paying attention.
  • A typically smart take from Pamela Geller: "What do all of these disparate players – Obama, de Blasio, Sharpton, CAIR – have in common? A shared goal: the destruction of America."
  • Finally, Theodore Shoebat takes to Barbwire.com to declare that "the homosexual agenda must be destroyed, and Christian civilization must triumph over this darkness."
