Leftovers

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."

  • 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.”
  • Fox News has a very interesting view of what “slut shaming” means.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/5/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/30/14

  • The Harry Potter series is pro-gay, so conservative Christians beware!
  • Nearly 30 percent of the new teachers hired by Lynchburg city schools are graduates of Liberty University.
  • 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."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/23/14

  • Gov. Bobby Jindal is inviting pastors to attend his "The Response" prayer rally by telling them that "the time has come for pastors to lead the way and reset the course of American governance."

  • Don Boys says Christians are under attack from "heathens, homosexuals, and humanists."

  • Phyllis Schlafly says that "leftwing universities hate Christian groups because they hate the universities hate the Christian message."
  • 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."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/19/14

  • Dave Daubenmire calls for the creation of a Christian Values Party: "If we want to save this nation, we must engage in the political debate with unashamed, Christian values."
  • Phyllis Schlafly warns that Ebola is right "on our doorstep" because President Obama hasn't banned travel from Western Africa which, the last time we checked, was nearly five thousand miles away from America.
  • Peter LaBarbera's Americans For Truth About Homosexuality is "alerting the nation to Walmart's increasing capitulation to the homosexual-bisexual-transgender agenda—and is calling on Americans to urge Walmart to stop promoting homosexuality and gender confusion (transgenderism) with its corporate dollars."
  • Joseph Farah says we had better "get ready for Muslim invasion of U.S."
  • Get a sneak peek of Todd Starnes' All-American Christmas Special.
  • Finally, it is rather ironic to see Theodore Shoebat warn that gays are using Nazi-type language that could lead to genocide against Christians considering that he literally advocates putting gays to death.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/18/14

  • Perhaps declaring that "Jesus is the reason for the season" is not the best thing to say at a menorah-lighting ceremony?
  • Phyllis Schlafly continues to warn that Ebola will cross into America over the southern border.
  • FRC continues to pray against gay marriage: "Lord, the war on marriage is a war against God and man, for you said, 'God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.' Help us prevail in defending the cornerstone of all human relationships - the very image of God displayed brilliantly through the sacred union of a man and woman!"
  • Similarly, ALIPAC is praying against immigration reform by "calling on Americans to unite in prayer together to ask God for strength and protection against the corrupt and deceitful politicians that are destroying America."
  • Glenn Beck has named Hobby Lobby's Steve Green as his "man of the year."
  • Finally, tonight is Glenn Beck's end of the year special, in which Beck reports from the future that 2014 was the year in which everything was lost:

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/17/14

  • NOM is trying to raise money off the fact that David Koch, who donates tens of millions of dollars to support conservative candidates, personally supports gay marriage.
  • Erica Wanis, a graduate of Patrick Henry College, says that "if indeed American college campuses are experiencing an epidemic of rape, then women must be willing to consider how their attitudes and behavior might be contributing to the problem."
  • There seems to be a backlash brewing on the LSU campus over the fact that it will be the site of Gov. Bobby Jindal's upcoming prayer rally with a bunch of anti-gay activists.
  • Bob Vander Plaats says Jeb Bush’s immigration reform support will be a "significant hurdle" for him to overcome "in a day where Ebola and ISIS have become household terms."
  • Obviously, the deadly hostage situation in Australia is a lot like "another hostage situation much closer to home": "America’s fundamental laws – the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights – have been taken hostage by elected officials who desire to govern by their own self-proclaimed private ideologies, or by the agenda of special interest groups they are trying to please."
  • Finally, Glenn Beck loves his wife and his daughters, so clearly conservatives don't hate women.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/16/14

  • Jeb Bush has announced that he is going to "actively explore" the prospect of running for president.
  • On a related note, Donald Trump is once again pretending that he is also thinking about running for the White House.
  • 4 WINDS sports minister Steve McConkey believes that the International Olympic Committee's new non-discrimination policy will "discriminate against Christian athletes and coaches who believe homosexuality is a sin."
  • Peter LaBarbera doesn't want gay people to be able to donate blood because "the fact is nature discriminates against homosexual behavior."

  • ALIPAC is calling for a "Time Of Prayer" in an effort to stop immigration reform.

  • The release of the CIA torture report was treason.
  • Finally, Don Boys explains that "atheists don’t exist because God will not permit it."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/12/14

  • Scott Lively defends his assertion that homosexuality is worse than murder.
  • Joseph Farah says that "maybe the people out protesting police shootings have no one to blame but themselves" when police officers kill an unarmed black man.
  • NOM writes a letter from the future.
  • Tim Brown has a warning: "When a nation forgets God, God brings judgment upon that nation and we are seeing it before our eyes… blasphemers, idolaters, homosexuals and other sins and crimes abound in our nation, and why? The Church has not been salt and light, but rather has pampered herself and whored herself out, despising the cross of Christ for the accolades of man."
  • Finally, Lee Dugion says that President Obama almost "seems to be daring Congress to impeach him." Why would he do that? "Maybe he wants to go down in history as the poor little black man who was finally brought down by racists. That’s better than being remembered as the most miserable failure and fraud of a president we’ve ever had."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/11/14

  • A timely bit of radio commentary from Phyllis Schlafly: "Of all the examples of incompetence and failure to protect Americans that the Obama Administration has displayed, its failure to keep Ebola out of our country may be the worst."

  • Now that he's leaving Congress, Rep. Paul Broun is going to need a job so he is going to start his own tea party group.
  • You know who should have been Time's "Person of the Year"? David Barton.
  • Finally, Janet Porter is so furious that Ohio Republicans failed to pass her "Heartbeat Bill" that she threw her "Proud to be a Republican" coffee mug in the trash! That'll show 'em.
