Paranoia-Rama: 'Homo-Hunting,' Progressive 'Kristallnacht,' & Beyoncé's Demons

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Nazism has come to America, and its first victims will be Dinesh D’Souza, the super-rich and the people of Montana.. or so we are told in this week’s edition of Paranoia-Rama.

5. Beyoncé Is Possessed By Demons

Earlier this month, we learned that Beyoncé is somehow contributing to sex trafficking. But leave it to Bryan Fischer to inform us that Beyoncé is also under the control of demons, specifically a demon that goes by the name “Sasha Fierce.”

4. Obama Declares War On Montana

We already knew that the Environmental Protection Agency is behind a secret anti-gun plot, but now it turns out that the EPA is also attempting to “depopulate Montana” by “seizing millions of acres of land from their present American owners and transferring its ownership to their indigenous population in areas known as Indian Reservations.”

If Montanans don’t bow to the EPA and leave their state, we won’t be surprised if they end up in a FEMA coffin!

3. Gay Rights Advocates To Blame For Looming ‘Homo-Hunting’ Season

Far-right pundit Erik Rush predicts a coming wave of violent “homo-hunting” attacks on gay people, and the only people to blame are gay people themselves. Rush explains that gay rights advocates like Sally Kohn have so upset people with their “obnoxious” behavior and “anal fisting labs in grade school” that eventually people will react with violence against their gay neighbors.

2. Progressive Kristallnacht Against The 1% Is Imminent

The poor, persecuted, $380,000 watch-wearing 1% have finally found someone who will speak up for their historically underrepresented group, and that person is venture capitalist Tom Perkins. In a letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal, Perkins found “parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its ‘one percent,’ namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the ‘rich.’”

“Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendant ‘progressive’ radicalism unthinkable now,” he concluded.

After offering a classic non-apology apology for the patently offensive letter, Perkins played the victim and naturally won support from Glenn BeckFox Business and the Wall Street Journal.

1. McDonnell and D’Souza Are Being Persecuted!

Conservatives from Matt Drudge to Ted Cruz suggest that politics is behind the prosecutions of former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell, indicted for accepting illegal gifts, and conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, who has been indicted for making straw donations to failed Republican senate candidate and college pal Wendy Long.

Claims that the indictments were motivated by anti-GOP politics rather than actual evidence are so absurd that they sound as if they come from InfoWars host Alex Jones.

In fact, Jones offered his own commentary and agreed that the McDonnell’s and D’Souza’s legal troubles are signs of Obama’s “reign of terror.” “This is like Nazi Germany, this is what happens, this is how freedom fails,” Jones said.

Operation American Spring Organizers Joke About Putting Obama In Guantanamo Bay

 Last week, retired Col. Harry Riley was a guest on Patriot Nation with Mark Hoffman to talk about his upcoming rally, Operation American Spring. On May 16th, Riley and his supporters will head to Washington D.C. with hopes to oust President Obama.

Col. Riley, who claims he is modeling his movement on the Arab Spring, is confident that  between 10 to 20 million people will join him in camping out in front of the White House until President Obama resigns. Calling it a “movement to action,” Col. Riley told Hoffman that he is “expecting something to happen. We will demand something to happen!”

Towards the end of the interview, Riley mentioned that he believes President Obama will not even be at the White House when the “patriots” march in. “He always sneaks away,” Riley snickered. “Maybe we can move him over to Guantanamo.”

When In Public, Tim Wildmon Can Tell Who Is Gay Because 'They Walk Like A Girl'

One thing we constantly hear from anti-gay activists is that they do not hate gay people and, in fact, personally have a lot of gay people either as friends or family whom they know and love. But that must not be the case with Tim Wildmon and Linda Harvey because, after listening to them talk about gay people for a few minutes, one has to wonder if they've ever actually even met a gay person. 

Harvey was a guest on "AFA Today" recently to discuss her new book "Maybe He's Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality" and during the interview, Wildmon began to wonder just why gay men are so effeminate, declaring that when he is out in public, "I can tell you who's gay" just by looking at them.

"They have these effeminate, a lot of them, actions," Wildmon declared. "They walk like a girl, a lot of them. I mean, I'm just being honest. This is what everybody says but maybe nobody talks about publicly, and it just makes you wonder, how did that develop, where does that come from?"

An ignorant question like that deserves an equally ignorant answer, which is just want Harvey provided, blaming it on Hollywood's effort to "feminize" men by providing male role models that "just aren't masculine."

"It's very wrong," she said. "It is definitely pulling people away from a biblical model of manhood and womanhood":

Garrow: Put Obama 'In Chains And Under Arrest'

Jim Garrow writes today that reports of a massive proficiency test cheating scandal in the Air Force’s nuclear weapons corps are just lies created by the Obama administration to cover up the president’s plan to nuke America.

According to the right-wing activist and serial fraudster, the media is refusing to report that three nuclear officers heroically stopped Obama from killing 90 percent of Americans with an EMP attack, which Obama ordered to help George Soros make money.

He adds that Obama also wanted to nuke the country in order to realize the goals of Agenda 21 — a non-binding document on sustainable development goals — because we all know how nuclear attacks are great for the environment.

“Hitler would be proud,” Garrow says of Obama. “Why is he still sitting in the Oval Office and not in chains and under arrest.”

Hiding Attempted Murder:

"I told you so", seems so trite when we face the illusion and dis-information of the Obama regime. No mention of the attempted destruction of America by the use of an EMP device? No mention of the heroes who refused to allow it to happen and took a bullet for us, that ended their careers. But we hear about the 2 Generals and an Admiral being relieved of duty for "moral pulchritude" and phony charges. When the first 34 officers who backed these 3 heroes up were dismissed, again we heard crickets about the truth. The Obama spin was repeated verbatim as if it were reality. And now the other 92 officers get shown the door.

Let me be clear. Obama in his unflappable attempt to become the dictator of all he surveys and to assure that the elite would survive after an attempt to make America "sustainable", is following the demand of the United Nations Agenda 21. This Nazi outrage outlines in it a recommended population control and depopulation of a majority of those alive today. Obama nearly killed an eventual 300 million Americans, as the experts tell us would die within two years in the aftermath of a successful EMP hit on America. 90% of America wiped out? Hitler would be proud of this kind of success.

The aim now is to shut down our missile defense. Close one door, Obama opens another. Why is he still sitting in the Oval Office and not in chains and under arrest?

Wildmon: Republicans Would Have Impeached A Republican President Obama

On yesterday's broadcast of "Today's Issues," the AFA's Tim Wildmon interviewed Robert Knight about President Obama's recent State of the Union Address and various other issues. During the conversation, Wildmon shared his truly amazing belief that if a Republican president had done the things Obama has done, Republicans would have impeached him and removed him from office.

Wildmon declared that there is no Christian influence within the Democratic Party "so they don't have any moral standards to abide by," which is why Obama can get away with his "lawlessness and lying." Republicans, on the other hand, have a pretty strong "Christian element" within the party that does not tolerate such things, and that is why "if a [Republican] president had done what Obama has done, they would be told 'you gotta go,' by your own party; 'you can 't do this.'"

"I really believe that," Wildmon said ... apparently having forgotten the entire eight years "lawlessness and lying" of the George W. Bush administration:

Family Research Institute Applauds Uganda Anti-Gay Bill, Calls Homosexuality Worse Than Murder

Paul Cameron’s Family Research Institute is upset that Marvin Olasky of the Religious Right-aligned WORLD magazine dared to criticize Uganda’s draconian anti-gay bill, which recently passed parliament but has been blocked by the president, at least for now.

In a response on its website, Cameron’s group took issue with Olasky’s claim that the bill is “harsh and unlikely to be effective,” saying that harsh measures are needed to curb homosexuality…just like murder:

Laws against murder are harsh and unlikely to be effective (in completely stopping murder). But such laws educate as to what is ‘correct’ and serve as a disincentive to commit murder. Just because we cannot specify how many lives were saved by a particular law hardly means the law was ineffective. Surely the fact that people still commit murder, rape, or theft would not cause Dr. Olasky to label them as “ineffective” and not worth having.

The FRI said that gay people must be treated as lawbreakers as there is no difference between them and pedophiles.

“Dislike of homosexuality, general avoidance of those who practice it, and trying to keep our kids safe from gay predators are hardly ‘problems’ for Christians,” the group added. “How do we show ‘godly love and kindness toward active child molesters?’”

Cameron’s organization capped off its defense of the Uganda bill with this anti-gay rant:

Homosexual practitioners may get pleasure from indulging their sexual desires, but that is far outweighed by diseases leading to a shortened lifespan combined with interpersonal violence, instability, and a life of destructive meaninglessness. Additionally, they are a burden to us all in that they 1) consume more than they contribute, 2) disproportionately disturb social order, and 3) produce few children themselves while molesting the kids of others.

Homosexuality violates God’s first commandment to ‘be fruitful,’ and is at the very heart of Biblical denunciation of rebellion against God (see Deut 32 and Romans 1). Homosexual lust led to the painful incineration of 26 brave Ugandan Christian boys and young men. It cannot be ignored without substantial intellectual and moral peril. Arguably Christianity’s greatest preacher, John Chrysostom, called it the worst sin, worse even than murder. While every sin in Scripture is not to be carried into public law, if this sin is not, what would Olasky nominate and how would he justify it?

6 Things To Know About Potential Iowa Senate Candidate Bob Vander Plaats

Bob Vander Plaats, head of the right-wing group The Family Leader, told The Hill yesterday that he is still weighing a run for U.S. Senate in his home state of Iowa to replace retiring Democrat Tom Harkin.

We’re not entirely convinced that the Religious Right activist isn’t just putting his name out there to get attention – one Iowa GOP strategist said in 2010 that he had “never witnessed an ego the size and proportion of Bob Vander Plaats” – but he certainly has the connections to raise money and early polls show that he would at least be a contender for the Republican nomination.

Vander Plaats, who lost three consecutive gubernatorial elections in the last decade, is a small-time kingmaker for socially conservative national Republicans. Vander Plaats helped to spearhead Mike Huckabee’s and Rick Santorum’s presidential caucus victories in 2008 and 2012 and hosted a 2012 Republican candidates’ forum that attracted every major presidential candidate except for Mitt Romney.

His biggest political victory to date was in 2010 ,when he ran a successful recall campaign against three state supreme court justices who had ruled in favor of marriage equality the previous year. An attempt to oust another justice two years later was a bust.

Vander Plaats insists that he isn’t too extreme to win a general election in the swing state. “I don’t think I’m an extreme in America in regards to valuing human life, the foundation of family with one-man, one-woman marriage, and religious liberty,” he told The Hill.

We’ll believe that when we see it. Here are just six of the most extreme right-wing items on Vander Plaats’ resume:

1. Suggested African American Families Were Better Off Under Slavery

During the 2012 presidential campaign, Vander Plaats took advantage of Iowa’s outsized influence to convince Republican candidates to participate in a debate hosted by his group and to sign the group’s “Marriage Vow.”

The pledge — signed by Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry — suggested that African-American families were better off under slavery than in present day: “Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.”

The language was eventually removed, but now Vander Plaats has moved on to comparing marriage equality to slavery and the Dred Scott ruling.

2. Favors Russia’s Anti-Gay Crackdown

After launching a campaign to encourage stronger conservative leadership, Vander Plaats hailed Russian president Vladimir Putin as a great leader for his criminalization of “homosexual propaganda.”

While Vander Plaats commends Putin’s anti-gay crackdown, the conservative crusader hasn’t mentioned if he thinks Putin’s bold leadership includes his suppression of dissent, human rights activism and religious freedom .

3. Uses Toxic Anti-Gay Rhetoric

Vander Plaats has likened homosexuality to second hand smoke, a point emphasized by a Family Leader seminar demonstrating that homosexuality, like smoking, represents a “public health crisis.” He defended the comparison, saying, “If we’re teaching the kids, ‘don’t smoke, because that’s a risky health style,’ the same can be true of the homosexual lifestyle.”

Vander Plaats has even linked homosexuality to the national debt and said that an anti-bullying youth conference dishonors God because it tackles the issue of the bullying of LGBT youth.

According to Vander Plaats, same-sex marriage is akin to polygamy and incest and any marriage equality law is unconstitutional because it “goes against the law of nature.”

4. Loves A Good ‘Faggot’ Joke

Exhibiting great leadership, Vander Plaats burst into laughter in response to a joke about “fags” marrying. When asked why a homophobic joke made him crack up, Vander Plaats explained he was merely trying to “love people” and “speak the truth in love.”

5. Wants to Outlaw Pornography

Vander Plaats wants to outlaw pornography, a principle which he attempted to have presidential candidates endorse in his 2012 “Marriage Vow.” In his 2006 gubernatorial campaign, Vander Plaats cited the work of prominent pornography-ban advocate Judith Reisman.

6. Promotes Birther Conspiracies

A big fan of Donald Trump’s “bold” birther crusade, Vander Plaats remains unconvinced that President Obama has a birth certificate proving his U.S. birth.

Dave Agema Is Warmly Welcomed And Strongly Defended By Fellow Bigot Bryan Fischer

If you are a member of the Republican National Committee who is currently under intense pressure to resign due to your long history of making bigoted anti-gay and anti-Muslim comments, perhaps it is not the best course of action to go on a radio program hosted an equally bigoted Religious Right host with an even longer record of making outrageous statements in an effort to defend yourself.

But that is exactly what Dave Agema did today when he showed up on Bryan Fischer's show in order to play the victim and comparing himself to Phil Robertson and Evander Holyfield and others who have supposedly been persecuted for simply telling the truth. For his part, Agema vowed to stand on principle and never to resign from the RNC rather than become a victim of "political correctness."

"Political correctness is taking the place of freedom of speech," Agema told Fischer. "And if you look at what's happened just here in the news media and particularly in Hollywood in the Grammys, they are just shoving this stuff down our throats and very few people are speaking up. And if you do speak up, you can expect to be slammed, and that's exactly what they call it, slamming and jamming, what they're doing to me right now":

Agema, like so many anti-gay right-wing martyrs before him, seems to be operating under the delusion that "freedom of speech" mean that they are entitled to say anything they want without receiving any criticism or suffering any consequence whatsoever.

Randall Terry Defends Anti-Gay Laws: 'The Russians Have It Right'

Just yesterday we added Gordon Klingenschmitt to the ever-growing list of right-wing activists who have come out in support of Russia's crackdown on "homosexual propaganda" and now we can add Randall Terry as well.

On his "Voice of the Resistance" broadcast yesterday, Terry claimed that gay activists "want access to children because they want to recruit them" by exposing them to "sexually stimulating things" and thereby instilling in them sexual confusion that will make them think they are gay.

Which is why, Terry said, "the Russians have it right; we don't evangelize our children into the homosexual lifestyle":

Rios: Obama Has 'Otherworldly,' 'Supernatural Power'

On her radio show yesterday, American Family Association governmental affairs director Sandy Rios reacted to President Obama’s State of the Union speech by warning that the president has a sinister “supernatural power” that is captivating the American people.

Responding to a caller who warned that “there’s a black cloud over our national capital” that is bringing down America, Rios said that there is a “spiritual” element to the political battle: “I do think what we’re facing here is otherworldly, there is a supernatural power to this president that I can’t—that I think most of us have picked up, those of us who believe in God and believe that there are other forces at work here, but we don’t know what God’s mind is on this.”

Previously, Rios claimed that Obama is no different than Adolf Hitler and Mao Zedong.

Santorum On Obama's State Of The Union Address: 'This Is What Tyrants Are Made Of'

Rick Santorum called into Steve Malzberg's radio program yesterday to discuss his reaction to President Obama State of the Union address and, like Glenn Beck, he saw in it the hallmarks of Obama becoming a tyrannical dictator.

Malzberg was particularly disturbed by Obama's declarations that "climate change is a fact" and that Obamacare is the law of the land, seeing in those statements a complete dismissal of the Republican point of view. And that takeaway was shared by Santorum, who heard echoes of the recent statement made by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in Obama's speech.

"This attitude is," Santorum said, "we've heard enough from you folks, it's time to get out, get out of the way. If you don't get out of the way, I'm going to do it myself. And this is what tyrants are made of":

Birther Leader Joseph Farah: I Am Not A Birther!

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah, one of the most outspoken champions of the birther conspiracy theory, is desperately trying to cover up his birther history as he encourages the Canadian-born Ted Cruz to run for president. In a WND column today, Farah insists that he never even came close to suggesting that President Obama was born outside of the U.S.:

Now I have seen dozens of blog postings and “news stories” about my commentary, and they all pretty much say the same thing – suggesting or outright stating that I peddled a theory that Obama was born abroad. This is patently untrue.

In the hundreds of thousands of words I have written and spoken on this subject, I have never theorized Obama was born abroad.

Actually, Farah in several WND editorials suggested that Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya, based on a discredited claim that the president’s grandmother said he was born in Kenya. WND has also published many “news” articles and columns indicating that Obama was born outside of the US.

The WND editor adds that the Canadian-born Cruz is eligible to be president simply because he loves America and is much more patriotic than President Obama or even Hillary Clinton. He goes on to accuse everyone but himself of hypocrisy on the issue of presidential eligibility:

I’m actually being called a “hypocrite” today for saying I don’t have any concerns about Ted Cruz’s eligibility. Here’s why I don’t: The man has been forthcoming and released his birth certificate – even before his candidacy. It’s a Canadian birth certificate, as we all expected. It lists his parents – one a Cuban citizen who later became a U.S. citizen and the other an American citizen who conferred U.S. citizenship on her son. Cruz is in the process of renouncing his Canadian citizenship. He loves and reveres the U.S. Constitution as much as his Cuban-born father does. This is different than, say, Sen. Marco Rubio. Neither of his parents were U.S. citizens when he was born – neither of them able to confer on their son what the founders deemed “natural born citizen” status. The fact that he was born in the U.S. is of lesser, if any, significance.

Cruz has released all his papers without being asked – even before seeking the presidency. If someone else wants to make the case that he is not eligible, I’ll listen skeptically and respectfully.

Some of the attacks on my column have even suggested I “endorsed” Cruz for president. Listen, I like the guy, but he’s not even running yet. I like many potential candidates. It will be some time before I endorse anyone. To my mind, I’m satisfied. I do not see any potential for divided loyalties for Ted Cruz, which was the founders’ principle reason for including the “natural born citizen” clause in the Constitution. If he ran against Hillary Clinton, I’d enthusiastically support him. He’s much more of an American than Hillary could ever be.

But I’m not here to defend Ted Cruz’s eligibility. I’m here to say that America needs one standard of eligibility – not one for Republicans and another for Democrats, not one for conservatives and another for liberals, not one for people we like and another for people we don’t like.

Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice Launches ‘It’s Time’ Campaign

At a standing-room-only event at the National Press Club today, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice launched a new campaign designed to shift the public conversation about religion and sexuality.

An underlying premise for the It’s Time campaign is that the Religious Right has dominated that conversation and as a result, “an unprecedented number of bills are being proposed – and far too many are passing – that attempt to write one narrow-minded, dangerous religious view of abortion and sexuality into law.”

The campaign seeks to enlist people of faith – the majority of whom support access to contraception, sexuality education, and reproductive healthcare including abortion – and give them tools for engaging in respectful conversation with friends, families, religious congregations, and communities.  Speakers at today’s launch included religious leaders, healthcare advisors, and advocates.

“We all need to be reminded that many, many people of deep faith across this country are pro-faith, pro-family and pro-choice,” said Rev. Alethea Smith-Withers, RCRC board chair. LaTasha Mayes, executive director of New Voices Pittsburgh, said polling indicates that 76 percent of African Americans who attend religious services weekly agree that abortion should be legal and safe.

Dr. Willie J. Parker, a Chicago physician who provides abortion care, said that he is “witness to the torment” of patients who are told when they make the decision to have an abortion “that doing so is mutually exclusive with the faith identity that they hold.” Said Parker, “I believe a compassionate, explicit and assertive voice within the faith community….sets at liberty those who are held captive by religious dogma.”

Another speaker, Aimee Thorne-Thompson of Advocates for Youth, described herself as a secular person who understands that religion has been used as a tool of oppression but can also be a tool for justice. “I want young people to know that they can bring their whole selves to these conversations and their activism, and that includes their sexuality and their faith, if they have it.”

RCRC President Harry Knox, said, “For us, the call to reproductive justice is a moral one, grounded in centuries of spiritual teachings and sacred texts.” Knox recently wrote:

“Religious leaders, in particular, must articulate the simple fact that while people of faith vary widely in their beliefs about when and whether ending a pregnancy is morally acceptable, a vast majority of the American people believe that decisions about pregnancy should be made by a woman, in consultation with her partner and physician, and perhaps her clergyperson – not by the government.”

According to Knox, the It’s Time campaign will be at the Supreme Court in March as the Hobby Lobby case is heard; in Texas in April to nurture a new clergy network committed to reproductive justice; in Tennessee in May to teach people how to “lead faithfully at the epicenter of a ballot initiative fight”; and around the country to help people shape public discourse and be heard at the voting booth.

PFAW

Erik Rush: Norman Lear Opened Door To Satanism At The Grammys

Right-wing pundits continue to express shock and disgust — and hurl accusations of Satanism — at the 2014 Grammy Awards. On his radio show yesterday, right-wing talker Erik Rush cited InfoWars, the Alex Jones-led conspiracy theory outlet, to claim that the Grammy ceremony was filled with Satanic and occult themes.

He blamed this on television producer and writer Norman Lear, the founder of People For the American Way, whom he claims is “one of the biggest social propagandists ever” and responsible for putting “freaks” into the spotlight. (If Rush means that Lear put some of the first gay characters on TV, he’s correct!)

In an earlier broadcast, Rush said the awards show made him want to vomit — even though he admitted he didn’t watch it:

Beck: 'This Was The State Of The Union Where Our President Declared He Would Become America's First Dictator'

As everyone knows, Glenn Beck is a reasonable and rational man who is not at all prone to hyperbole or wholesale emotional breakdowns, which is why it was so surprising to learn that he did not very much like President Obama's State of the Union Address last night, calling it "horrific from start to finish" and declaring that it is the speech that future historians will look back upon as the moment Obama seized control and declared himself to be a dictator.

"Over and over again," Beck said, "looking us in the eye, he said he would use his executive power to get his way. He bragged about it!" As such, Beck urged his audience to note this day in their diaries so that future generations will know the true history, which is that "this was the State of the Union where our president declared he would become America's first dictator":

Some Voter Fraud Myths Never Die

When Allen West lost his seat in Congress in 2012, his supporters immediately cried voter fraud based on a claim that one county in his Florida district had reported 141 percent of its registered voters turning out to the polls. The claim was bogus, because the 141 percent figure was misleading.

The actual turnout in the county was 69.56 percent, while the 141 percent figure represented the number of “cards cast.”

Since the ballot was two pages long, every voter cast two cards, hence the initial report that the number of “cards cast” amounted to 141 percent of registered voters.

Even the voter-fraud obsessed group True the Vote notes that in “St. Lucie County, ballots were at least two pages or ‘cards.’ Policy dictates that each card be counted separately, leading to a total of 247,383 ‘votes’, aka cards, cast. Divide the number by half, then exhale.”

So even though this claim of voter fraud has been debunked, a right-wing group is still citing the bogus charge in its opposition to restoring the Voting Rights Act. Speaking with the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow today, Bob Parks of Project 21 used the imaginary 141 percent figure to allege that massive voter fraud is undeniable:

An organization of black conservatives says a new bill provides election fraudsters with opportunity to potentially steal elections by nullifying the votes of law-abiding citizens.



Now the Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2014 – sponsored by both Republican and Democratic lawmakers – would create a new formula; and with it new criteria that could force even more jurisdictions to have to report to federal overseers on all matters related to the electoral process.

Bob Parks, who operates the website Black & Right, is a member of the national advisory council for Project 21.

"Having [a] federal government – especially [one] like this one that has an attorney general who picks and chooses which crimes and which offenses that he wishes to investigate, [and] which laws that they will simply ignore – it's ripe for corruption," he argues.

According to Parks, upwards of 19 states have counties with more than 100-percent voter registration. "You have situations ... I believe it was in the Allen West race in Florida where the voting was 141-percent," he recalls. "You can't tell me there's not a voter fraud problem."

Gohmert: Obama Is Santa Claus

Rep. Louie Gohmert, who recently unveiled his bold plan to tax the poorest Americans by taxing some of their government benefits, criticized President Obama yesterday for acting like “Santa Claus.”

Chatting with Fox News pundit Sean Hannity, whom Gohmert had invited as his guest to the State of the Union address, the Texas Republican said he wore a Santa Claus tie to the speech because “we’re going to be listening to Santa Claus tonight promising whatever anybody wants they can have.”

Barber: 'We Know [Obama's] Sympathies Lie With These Muslim Nations And Against Christianity'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Matt Barber and Mat Staver discussed a recent report from Open Doors USA that found that most anti-Christian persecution happening around the world is occurring in Muslim nations.

Barber, of course, used this as an excuse to trot out the standard Religious Right claim that liberals and Muslims are both persecuting Christians at home and abroad because both groups hate God's truth. But the point of the broadcast today was to discuss why American Christians have remained silent while their Christian brothers and sisters around the world have suffered brutal persecution and Barber didn't really know ... but he did know why President Obama hasn't spoken out: because he hates Christians:

Staver: it's one thing to criticize the administration but it's another thing about the church itself. Where are the voices of Christians here in the United States rising to the level of saying that this Christian persecution needs to be addressed?

Barber: Let's parse this out because I think that there are different motives here. When it comes to President Obama, as we discussed in a recent recording of Faith and Freedom, it's pretty clear; for him to criticize these Muslim nations for killing, for murdering and torturing Christians, it doesn't fit the narrative. We know that his sympathies lie with these Muslim nations and against Christianity and against Christians and so it's not surprising that he would choose to be silent. I'm disgusted by it but I'm not surprised by it.

I'm baffled by the silence of the church, as you mentioned, here in the United States and I don't know what the motive of that silence is other than perhaps fear or apathy and it's time for the church to get behind and support these Christians who are being martyred across the world.

So President Obama hasn't spoken out about this persecution because he hates Christians, but Christians haven't spoken out about it either ... for who knows what reason?

We also like to simply note that neither Barber nor Staver have said much, if anything, about this issue in all the years we have been listening to their programs. If Barber is "baffled" by the silence of the church in talking about this issue, he just so happens have a daily radio broadcast and a weekly column that he could be using to combat that, but over the last few years, he apparently hasn't felt that it was much of a priority.

Garrow: Obama Should Be 'Put Down' Like A 'Rabid Dog'

Jim Garrow reacted to President Obama’s State of the Union by once again calling for the president’s death, this time comparing him to a rabid dog who should be “put down.”

In a Facebook post today, Garrow suggested that Satan was behind Obama’s rise to power and called the president a “quisling agent” who should face a revolution.

The Speech:

"The Boy Who Cried Wolf" is at it again. Perhaps a real wolf will eat him so we don't have to listen to the lies. Rabid dogs are put down for the protection of the innocent and to prevent the spread of disease.

Our "loyal opposition" can't even yell "You lie" without offering an apology later and backing down from speaking the truth. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul made their usual attempt at truth telling but like the Scripture tells us "A prophet is without honor in his own land", and they will be ignored unless it is to hold them up to ridicule on the morning talk shows.

In the meantime the meteor of doom continues on its course with the mad man Obama laughing derisively at the "colonialist empire" he is wreaking havoc on and bringing down. The great Satan allowed its guard to slip and a quisling agent to penetrate. His work of devastation is not done and he has spread his manure of deceit across the land again.

The lonely voices of those not addled into submission to the lies find themselves Alinskied at every turn, browbeaten into conformity, or forced to disappear into obscurity for their audacity in declaring the Emperor to be unclothed, and bare faced in his lies.

Obama is revolting in his prevarication, and our response should be to revolt - period.

FRC Distorts Harvard Study To Claim Gay Marriage Harms Children

Surprising no one, the Family Research Council is attempting to spin a new Harvard study which found that “children raised in communities with high percentages of single mothers are significantly less likely to experience absolute and relative mobility” as a reason to oppose marriage equality. FRC president Tony Perkins and senior fellow Peter Sprigg addressed the Harvard findings on Monday’s edition of Washington Watch during a discussion of a proposed anti-gay amendment in Indiana.

After Sprigg noted that “if a child grows up in a community with married households, that child will do better than a child raised in a community where there are many single parent households,” he said that the study affirmed his opposition to marriage equality: “This is exactly what I’ve been saying about the marriage issue, if you redefine marriage it’s not going to affect just those couples, it’s going to affect the whole community by setting an example.”

“That study then answers that question: how does my same-sex marriage affect yours?” Perkins added. “Well, it may not affect my marriage but it affects my children because it has an impact upon marriage across the board.”

Essentially, Perkins and Sprigg are arguing that by banning gay couples from getting married, they will somehow reduce the number of single parent households.

Don’t worry if that argument makes no sense to you, because it shouldn’t: it relies on an oft-repeated but discredited claim that the legalization of same-sex marriage makes it less likely for opposite-sex couples to get married.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert J. Shelby found [PDF] that Utah couldn’t provide any evidence to support its claim that banning same-sex marriage was necessary to curb a negative impact on opposite-sex marriage:

The State has presented no evidence that the number of opposite-sex couples choosing to marry each other is likely to be affected in any way by the ability of same-sex couples to marry. Indeed, it defies reason to conclude that allowing same-sex couples to marry will diminish the example that married opposite-sex couples set for their unmarried counterparts. Both opposite-sex and same-sex couples model the formation of committed, exclusive relationships, and both establish families based on mutual love and support. If there is any connection between same-sex marriage and responsible procreation, the relationship is likely to be the opposite of what the State suggests. Because Amendment 3 does not currently permit same-sex couples to engage in sexual activity within a marriage, the State reinforces a norm that sexual activity may take place outside the marriage relationship.
