Leftovers

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/2/14

  • Bryan Fischer says that "the leaders of the Gay Gestapo have become our new slave masters."
  • Of course Allen West, who was voted out of office after just one term in Congress, is considering a run for the White House.
  • On June 6, right-wing Christian activists will unleash a "prayer storm" to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day: "Those with spiritual discernment see that we are facing a spiritual battle against evil in our nations today every bit as real as WWII. Moral depravity, apostasy, and other anti-Christian attacks reflect the creeping human secularist agenda that seeks to remove the gift of Liberty that Jesus' blood gave to all humanity."
  • As part of the 2014 Pastors & Patriot’s initiative, Mat Staver announces that Liberty Counsel will be "hosting pastors and wives meetings (usually a luncheon) in the critical 'swing states' of our country. The remarkable luncheon media presentation will feature nationally recognized Christian leaders such as Governor Mike Huckabee, Historian David Barton, Evangelist James Robison, myself, and many, many more."
  • Finally, Matt Barber warns that "pornography use leads to death" and "pornography use is demonic."

  • Like Newt Gingrich before him, Dinesh D'Souza was just so focused on saving America that he ended up having an affair.
  • Lee Duigon declares that "the abrupt removal of some millions of Christian children from the anti-Christian public schools would please God and show the world that we mean business."
  • Tim Macy, Vice Chairman of Gun Owners of America, responds to Richard Martinez, father of Christopher Michaels-Martinez who was killed by Elliot Rodger: "[I]f you don’t want the means to defend yourself, your home and family, don’t buy it. But PLEASE quit trying to impose your bad decisions on me and my family and all of America."
  • Today, Chris McDaniel made his third appearance on Bryan Fischer radio show in the last year.
  • Finally, speaking of Fischer, he reacted to the resignation of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney by saying that he can't imagine having a job where he had to go out and lie five days a week. As we've said before, Bryan Fischer is a lot of things, but self-aware is not one of them.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/29/14

  • Glenn Beck, David Barton, Michelle Malkin and other anti-Common Core activists will participate in a live event that will air in movie theaters throughout the country this summer called "We Will Not Conform."
  • Speaking of Beck, he has spent all week blaming Elliot Rodger's murder spree on video games, so logically he'll blame the murder of this two year-old girl on the Bible, right?
  • Predictably, David and Jason Benham have now become full-fledged Religious Right stars and have been given a speaking slot at Ralph Reed's upcoming Faith and Freedom Coalition conference.
  • Mat Staver reiterates his demand that Congress impeach President Obama: "Our Constitution and precious liberties are under full-scale assault by Barack Obama and his leftist administration. Patriotic Americans must refuse to stand silently by while leftists take our nation apart, plank by plank We MUST perform our duty as Americans to free ourselves of this tyranny."
  • Finally, Tea Party Nation has a message for the GOP: "America is waiting for you to prove you are patriots, not eunuchs."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/28/14

  • Mike Huckabee will not be speaking at the North Carolina Republican Party's convention next month because organizers could not come up with the $15,000 speaking fee he charges.
  • Matt Moore wants to make it clear that he really, truly, genuinely loves gays before telling them they are bound for Hell.
  • Bryan Fischer continues to insist that the Bible prohibits slavery and requires that those who practice it are to be put to death.  Someone should ask him if that means that he believes Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and other slave-owning Founding Fathers should have been punished accordingly.
  • The WNBA is marketing itself to LGBT fans and Peter LaBarbera is not happy: "I think that the sad thing here is there are a lot of Christian women who like the WNBA. They play basketball, they want to go to games, but now [if they continue to do that] they will be effectively subsidizing an organization which is rewarding sin."
  • Finally, this one line perfectly sums up Glenn Beck's entire worldview: "I don’t know how to make anything make sense."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/27/14

  • Allen West just so happened to be seated next to someone on a plane who knew the "ground truth" about what really happened in Benghazi and he told him all about it!
  • Whenever something that the Religious Right supports gets banned from Facebook for violating hate speech standards, they throw a fit and scream "persecution."
  • Todd Starnes is unafraid to ask the hard questions: "Does Google Hate America?"
  • Michael Peroutka donated a dinosaur skeleton worth over a million dollars to the Creation Museum.
  • Finally, "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson will address the Republican Leadership Conference on Thursday, presumably because the GOP is intent on constantly solidifying its reputation as the party of choice for people who don't like gays.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/23/14

  • Mike Huckabee will be the featured speaker at the March for Marriage in Washington, D.C. next month.
  • FRC praises the RNC for announcing that the 2016 convention will not be held in Las Vegas.
  • We are pretty sure that Glenn Beck would not be so nonchalant if Amazon decided that it would not sell his books.
  • Bryan Fischer believes that Russell Moore has "been scared straight" after he criticized right-wing Christian radio.
  • Finally, Robert Gagnon has written an open letter to Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett calling upon him to appeal the recent ruling striking down the state's gay marriage ban: "[I]t is absurd to regard a person of the same sex as one’s anatomical, physiological, and psychological counterpart or sexual complement. Becoming sexually aroused by what one already is as a gendered being, as though one were only half one’s own sex rather than half of a whole sexual spectrum containing two sexes, is obviously contrary to nature and a self-dishonoring impulse."

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/22/14

  • Erik Rush insists that all of his conspiracy theories are not conspiracy theories at all because these conspiracies are all real!
  • A very intriguing headline: "Exotic Dancer Finds Freedom From Demonic Attacks."
  • Liberty Counsel is excited by arguments that atheism/humanism is a religion because it might lead to allowing the teaching of creationism in public schools.
  • Did you know that political correctness is a form of hate? Now you do.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says that our culture is like the World Trade Center and right-wing pastors are the courageous first responders who ran in to try and put out the fire.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/20/14

  • Pennsylvania's anti-gay marriage amendment has been struck down, which must be exceptionally painful for Rick Santorum.

  • "We are going to make history": Matt Bevin assures Glenn Beck that he will win his race against Sen. Mitch McConnell tonight.
  • We can now add Steve Deace to the right-wing Christian radio hosts who are mad at Russell Moore for not being impressed by right-wing Christian radio hosts.
  • Finally, Liberty University vice president Johnnie Moore says that "many conservative evangelical leaders who are closer to [Glenn] Beck than me have told me that they believe Beck has had a born again experience recently."

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/19/14

  • Oregon has become the latest state to see its anti-gay marriage amendment struck down.
  • A smart take from Jeff Crouere: "It seems the politically correct liberals in charge of the NFL are admirers of communism. In Red China, Cambodia, Vietnam and other countries communist tyrants forced citizens into re-education camps to 'enlighten' their subjects about the wonderful 'benefits' of totalitarianism."
  • The Maine Ethics Commission is considering whether to fine the National Organization for Marriage $50,000 "for failing to register and disclose its activities in Maine’s 2009 same-sex marriage referendum."
  • NOM, for its part, announced that it would fight against any possible fine.
  • Finally, the AFA's Tim Wildmon invited Allen West to be a guest on his radio show and then completely forget why he had invited him on and what he wanted to talk about.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/16/14

  • Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief in Michigan’s marriage equality case, insisting that “it would be rational for the voters of Michigan to seek to minimize the deleterious effects” of “homosexual activity.”
  • The editor of Matt Barber’s website shows his “overwhelming love” for gay people by explaining that homosexuality “is destroying your life.”

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/14/14

  • Bryan Fischer is personally outraged by the decision striking down Idaho's anti-gay marriage amendment because he was deeply involved in writing the amendment.
  • FRC was likewise outraged by the decision: "The definition of marriage, like the sanctity of human life, is seen in the natural or moral law. The decisions of courts can ignore it, they can even attempt to suppress it, but they will never eradicate it."
  • Laurie Higgins is upset by seeing Michael Sam kiss his boyfriend and the "cultural degradation" that it represents.
  • The effort to place another "personhood" amendment on the ballot in Mississippi looks to be about to miss the deadline which will save organizers the embarrassment of having to watch it get trounced at the polls, just as it was in 2011.
  • Finally, the folks at the Media Research Center spent an entire day monitoring the content on The Huffington Post and were not happy with what they saw.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/12/14

  • Peter LaBarbera is threatening to sue Salon.com for libel.
  • Frank Turek says the push for marriage equality is "stealing rights from God."
  • Finally, Stu Burguiere claims that we intentionally misrepresented Glenn Beck's recent comments about Hillary Clinton because we "hate Glenn," even though we fully explained the context in the post in which the video was used. But if Burguiere is genuinely concerned about people taking things out of context, he ought to discuss that with his boss.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/9/14

  • Why is Glenn Beck's network reporting about Malala Yousafzai? We thought it was laughable to even expect people to know or care who she was.
  • This weekend, the Alaska Family Council will seek to explain how Christians can responsibly and gracefully engage a culture that has embraced homosexuality.
  • The American Family Association is calling upon cities in Mississippi to stop adopting anti-discrimination ordinances.
  • Gov. Bobby Jindal is scheduled to speak at Liberty University's graduation ceremony tomorrow where he will bravely criticize HGTV for canceling the Benham brothers' reality show.
  • On a related note, Tony Perkins responded to the Benham controversy by saying that "Right Wing Watch is about as reliable as the Obamacare website," which is actually kind of funny but also a totally false attack since everything we wrote about them was documented and true.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/8/14

  • Matt Barber's very credible website BarbWire has learned from an equally credible "inside" source that "Allen B. West is seriously considering a 2016 presidential run." We very much hope that this is true.
  • Speaking of Barber, he says that we are an "anti-Christian segregationist organization that exist for the sole purpose of segregating Christians and Christianity from any public forum." We are pretty sure that is not true.
  • Samuel Rodriguez says that Oklahoma's recent botched execution ought to be generating an outcry of evangelical Christians.
  • Representatives of The American Family Association, Focus on the Family, Concerned Women for America, Family Research Council, and Morality in Media all recently met with FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to voice their concerns about plans to "relax broadcast decency rules."
  • FRC prays: "May religious liberty flourish; may we use that liberty to pray and proclaim the Gospel as never before; and May awakening result that will turn the tide in our nation. May the local jurisdictions that have caved-in to the anti-prayer forces rethink and re-establish regular public prayer for their cities, counties and states."
  • Finally, Rep. Louie Gohmert grilled Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen today during a hearing about why his network refuses to carry Glenn Beck's The Blaze network.  Can you imagine the fit that Beck would throw if a member of Congress lobbied a cable executive on behalf of some other network like this? His head would explode.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/7/14

  • Glenn Beck says that he has never been as infatuated by a candidate as he is by Matt Bevin because "he is a remarkable, remarkable man."
  • Speaking of Beck, he thinks that House Speaker John Boehner selected Rep. Trey Gowdy to lead the Benghazi committee so that he can thrown him under the bus when the whole thing backfires.
  • The hatemongering, anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church continues to lose members.
  • John Freshwater, the right-wing public school science teacher who lost his job for teaching creationism, is taking his case to the Supreme Court.

  • Glenn Beck has released a new book about Common Core and he is telling people to buy a copy and rip the cover off and give it to their friends who will refuse to read it if they know that Beck wrote it.
  • Speaking of Common Core, a respected Republican pollster is warning candidates not to run for office by opposing it.
  • Tony Perkins says "one look at the headlines and we can all agree: If there's one thing this country could use more of, it's prayer!" I am pretty sure that we don't all agree on that.
  • Phyllis Schlafly seems to think that the short-term Democrat strategy is to get the unmarried women to vote while the long-term strategy is to push policies what will increase the population of unmarried women.
  • Finally, you can't argue with Bryan Fischer's logic: "The death penalty for cold-blooded murder was right in the days of Noah and it is right today."

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/5/14

  • Kirk Cameron has a starring role in Alliance Defending Freedom’s new infomercial.
