  • In the last few weeks, an anti-Common Core group in Alabama has received $700,000 from just one foundation, both of which just happen to be run the same person.
  • It is always fascinating to watch Glenn Beck try to comprehend the fact that not every person in America shares his personal views and preferences.
  • Finally, this might be the dumbest thing you will read about the Donald Sterling controversy: "When you talk about Jay-Z, this criminal thug who's called black women all kinds of names, disgraced our race. And nobody is talking about kicking him out of the league? You can't have double standards I'm sorry."

  • "History is repeating itself": Glenn Beck says that Alex Jones' attacks on him are just like Malcolm X's attacks on Martin Luther King.
  • Speaking of Jones, Cliff Kincaid can probably expect to become his next target after he called Jones and his followers a bunch of lunatics who are "poisoning the minds of many conservatives and Tea Party members."
  • Is anyone surprised that three graduates of Liberty University Law School are serving as law clerks for Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore and played a key role in crafting the court's recent abortion decision?

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/25/14

  • A poll commissioned by Citizens for Community Values Action shows, shockingly, "a decline in support for same-sex marriage in Ohio."
  • Robert Oscar Lopez warns S.E. Cupp not to support gay adoption because, in doing so, "we are encouraging a whole new generation of homewreckers – gays who want to be parents and figure out that the cheapest way to do it is to seduce someone of the same sex who is currently in a rocky marriage with children."
  • Right-wing activists have released a Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi report. We are sure it is very informative.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer proudly declares that "I am the only conservative in America" that is willing to come to Cliven Bundy's defense.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/24/14

  • Cliven Bundy cannot be a racist because, his son says, "two vehicles full of black men" protected him during the Watts Riots in 1965 and "he felt that they were his guardian angels."

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/23/14

  • Beware! "Torquemada Invades America."
  • "Can You Be Gay and Christian?" FRC and Michael Brown will let you know.
  • ADF calls on pastors to "rise up," just like the Founding Fathers who "believed so strongly in the involvement of pastors and Bible teachers in political matters that they risked their lives signing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution."
  • Finally, Glenn Beck does not believe that the nation’s immigration court system just happened to suffer a massive technical meltdown because he, of course, suspects that someone is deliberately sabotaging it as retribution for the failure to pass immigration reform.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/22/14

  • In a shocking development, a poll commissioned by the Family Research Council and America Values found "that 82 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning independents" oppose gay marriage.

  • Todd Starnes has very clever insights.
  • Any event featuring Wiley Drake and James David Manning is bound to be an exercise in insanity.
  • Finally, it is more than a little ironic that J.D. Greear, a pastor speaking at the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics Religious Liberty Commission Leadership Summit, would complain that "[p]reaching against homosexuality in our day is about as popular as preaching against slavery and racism in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1861."

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/21/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/18/14

  • The AP reports that "James Dobson has won a temporary injunction preventing the federal government from requiring his ministry to include the morning-after pill and other emergency contraception in its health insurance."

  • Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer has resigned from the organization in order to assist with Matt Bevin's campaign against Sen. Mitch McConnell.
  • Glenn Beck had a dream.
  • Finally, Quiverfull and home-schooling leader Bill Gothard is denying allegations from dozens of women that he sexually harassed them, but admitting that his behavior was wrong: "My actions of holding of hands, hugs, and touching of feet or hair with young ladies crossed the boundaries of discretion and were wrong. They demonstrated a double-standard and violated a trust. Because of the claims about me I do want to state that I have never kissed a girl nor have I touched a girl immorally or with sexual intent."

  • Gov. Bobby Jindal will be the commencement speaker at Liberty University next month.

May those in authority, especially parents, set an example and train our youth to reject mind altering drugs that are dangerous to everyone (Lk 12:35-40; Rom 12:1; 1 Cor 6:12-20; Eph 5:18)."
  • Matt Barber is predictably upset by the release of a postage stamp honoring Harvey Milk.

  • Bryan Fischer and Robert Oscar Lopez commiserate over the fact that they are both considered too radical to be accepted by the "mainstream" pro-family movement.
  • Finally, Glenn Beck is getting into the movie-making business because "I hate politics. I hate politicians and I feel like I'm wasting my life." Which explains why he spends hours on radio and television every single day talking about politics and politicians.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/15/14

  • After finally being allowed to enter Canada, Peter LaBarbera got himself arrested for displaying anti-gay and anti-abortion posters and handing out literature on a college campus and then refusing to leave.
  • Glenn Beck says that Congressional candidate Barry Loudermilk reminds him a lot of David Barton (and he thinks that is a good thing.)

  • Finally, Matt Barber tells a Christian publishing company that is reportedly going to publish a book by a gay Christian that it can "no longer call yourself a Christian publishing company.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/14/14

  • It is honestly amazing that Matt Barber thinks he is helping his side by writing columns with titles like "How the 'Gay' Jihad Normalized a Filthy Practice."
  • Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) warns that "the president is going to trash the Constitution even more than he's already trashed it and do precisely what he says he doesn't have the authority to do, which is basically to suspend virtually all deportations to grant legal status or quasi-legal status to the millions of illegal aliens who are here."
  • Alveda King and Day Gardner lament that "this week's 2014 Civil Rights Summit missed a historic moment to acknowledge the most important civil rights struggle of our time -- securing the rights of those alive in the womb."
  • If Pinterest just isn't Christian enough for you, now you have an alternative.
  • Finally, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is concerned that Evangelicals don't have anyone to speak for them in government because the Supreme Court and Congressional leadership are dominated by Catholics.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/11/14

  • Peter LaBarbera was initially prohibited from entering Canada on his way to deliver a speech to an anti-abortion group, but the decision was later reversed and he was allowed to enter.

  • Bryan Fischer proclaims that the Nevada rancher locked in a showdown with the federal government "is the most law-abiding citizens that you're ever going to meet." It must be nice to be able to host a daily radio talk show where you are not expected to have any idea what you are talking about.

  • Finally, Operation American Spring has sent Congress "copies of documents demanding the resignations of six, top government officials, including Articles of Impeachment against President Obama, for violating their oath of office, and/or by committing high crimes against the state, and requiring Congress to enforce the demands, or be held accountable."

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/10/14

  • Bob Marshall continues to rack up support, this time scoring the coveted endorsement of E.W. Jackson.
  • FRC prays: "Pray for those who have succumbed to pressure from activists, frenzied by their radical agenda. May business leaders understand the issues and not allow themselves to be used to promote an anti-Christian agenda. May Craig James prevail in his Texas action and may God use him mightily in his new role as Assistant to FRC President, Tony Perkins!"
  • "Who Is Gordon Klingenschmitt?" Let him tell you!
  • Some keen insights from Michael Brown: "It is one thing to use the 'N' word, since it is overtly offensive, while I understand that terms like 'colored' or 'Negro' have been abandoned in deference to the preferences of black (or African) Americans. At the same time, black Americans have not said to us, 'Don’t say "colored," say "special,’'' whereas gay activists have said, 'Don’t say "homosexual" say "gay"'' thereby dictating concepts as well as terms."
  • Finally, Ben Shapiro has written the dumbest thing you will read all day.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/9/14

  • Craig James allegedly lost his last job for being anti-gay so, of course, he has now been hired by the Family Research Council.
  • Anti-immigration activists are not reacting well to Jeb Bush's statement that those who enter this country illegally do so as an "act of love."
  • Robert Knight does not support the push for marriage equality: "It’s one thing to have the idea that a cow is now a horse. It’s another to use the power of the law to impose this delusion on everybody else. Same-sex 'marriage' is a direct attack on freedom of conscience for millions of people."
  • Liberty University dismisses concerns that it has hired a gay choreographer for an upcoming production of Mary Poppins.
  • Finally, James Dobson has a long list of ways that America is collapsing, including "in early March, Lena Dunham, the creator and star of the cable sitcom, Girls, appeared totally nude in a two minute skit on Saturday Night Live. She was naked as a jaybird.  Dunham was accompanied by her co-star, Taran Killam, who was wearing nothing but a scanty leaf.  Not only was the skit obscene; it mocked the biblical account of Creation and the Creator. Was there any outrage to the response? None that I heard about."

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/7/14

  • Gary Glenn and the American Family Association of Michigan oppose a proposed anti-discrimination ordinance in Saginaw because "we consider these ordinances to be, themselves, discriminatory."

  • Don Feder lays out the "10 Pillars of Patriotism."
  • Judie Brown, founder of American Life League, is outraged that President Obama gave a rosary blessed by the Pope to Nancy Pelosi: "I'm horrified, because as a Catholic, I think it's sacrilegious for someone like Pelosi – who is allegedly a Catholic – to accept anything from a pro-abortion president, but specifically when it is a rosary. It's a sacrilege for the president to have given it to anybody or to have accepted it in the first place. He has no faith."
  • You have been warned: "Without Revival, Our Civilization Will Become Like Sodom and Gomorrah."
  • Finally, Stuart Shepard blames groups like PFAW for an incident in which a little girl was allegedly told that she could not pray before lunch, even though the entire thing was false and ginned up by Todd Starnes.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/3/14

  • Just because the claim that President Obama has surrendered control over the internet has been repeatedly debunked, that is not going to stop Liberty Counsel from repeating it.
  • The Family Leader is mad that Progress Iowa is "bullying" Bob Vander Plaats by making fun of him in a comic book.
  • Today was "Abstinence Day on the Hill," where teen activists lobby their legislators in support abstinence education.
