Nunnelee Claims Obama Banned Military Service Members From Donating To Churches

Religious Right activists are trying very hard to make the case — with very little evidence — that the Obama administration is cracking down on Christians in the U.S. military.

Over the past couple of years, Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-MS) has enthusiastically gotten in on the game in order to stir baseless fears of anti-Christian persecution under President Obama.

Speaking with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council on Washington Watch earlier this week, the congressman made the absurd accusation that the Obama administration is threatening service members who make donations to their churches.

After Perkins accused Obama of trying to “suppress” religious freedom in order to advance his “radical social policy,” Nunnelee said, “We have military people — ‘If you are supporting an evangelical Christian organization’ — I take that to be my church — ‘then you are subject to Uniform Code of Military Justice.’ Well that is frightening. If a soldier — a man or woman in the military—makes a contribution to their church and they’re going to be hauled in before the UCMJ, that is very serious.”

WND: Black History Month Should Be About The Knockout Game, Anti-White Segregation

WorldNetDaily columnist Mychal Massie thinks Black History Month should be sent “to the ash heaps of history,” but since it is still around, he has devised his own way to mark the month.

Massie suggests that Black History Month should focus on the media-hyped “knockout game” as proof that black people “are able to get away” with anything and blames groups such as the Congressional Black Caucus for segregation.

The one thing you won’t hear during Black History Month is what blacks are able to get away with today, which, if taken in context, shows the tolerance of America that they won’t be talking about in classrooms during Black History Month.

They won’t be talking about the fact that blacks aren’t shot on sight in areas where “Knockout” is taking place. For those unfamiliar, the Knockout game is what black thugs play where they suddenly and unexpectedly punch unsuspecting white persons in the face for sport.



I’m tired of the lies – charlatans posing as eruditionists and parroting myths and distortions about what slavery was or wasn’t. Jim Crow is over, and the only overt segregation taking place today is perpetrated by black groups such as the Congressional Black Caucus, the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panthers.

Slavery has become a crutch for blacks. It is the excuse used for retreating from modernity. Slavery happened; the United States had the good sense and decency to move beyond it. Now it’s time blacks got over it and moved forward.

It’s time to send Black History Month to the ash heaps of history. It’s time to teach all children factual history, not just a manufactured history used to force guilt on white students and victim status on black students. It’s time we teach students that blacks do not own the market on past suffering and injustice. It’s time we teach that every population group who arrived here had extremely difficult times at first, but, unlike the majority of blacks, they rose above it. And, specific to that point, we should teach that those blacks who are not rising above same are those who embrace bitterness, victimology and immiseration as a means of life.
 

Farah: God Hardening Obama's Heart Like The Pharaoh's

In a column today, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah takes issue with Bill O’Reilly for telling President Obama that his “heart is in the right place.” Farah writes that it is “entirely possible God is hardening the heart of Obama,” just as “God hardened the heart of Pharaoh to serve His purposes” in Exodus, in order to “deliver His people from bondage once again.”

He goes on to say that Obama isn’t a Christian but an evildoer who is trying to “make government our god the way the children of Israel made one of a golden calf.”

Do you agree with Bill O’Reilly that Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place?

How does Bill O’Reilly know?



Can Bill O’Reilly know it? What special training and insight might he have?

Everything about Obama’s actions suggests neither his heart nor his soul is in the right place.



In Egypt, God hardened the heart of Pharaoh to serve His purposes. God sought to deliver His people from bondage in Egypt. Is it entirely possible God is hardening the heart of Obama today to deliver His people from bondage once again?

The Hebrew people were not excited about leaving bondage in Egypt. As bad as conditions were, the unknown frightened them. Even after the Red Sea was parted, saving them from annihilation by the Egyptian army, many sought to return to Egypt from the safety of the wilderness.

In a similar way, I believe Obama’s role is to force Americans to make a decision about their future:

Will we continue down the road toward bondage or reverse course and seek liberty in the ways of God?

Will we accept government’s handouts and control over our lives or depend on God and the work of our own minds and hands?

Will we follow God or will we make government our god the way the children of Israel made one of a golden calf?

I will believe Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place when he vows that he is a follower of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and will take no actions and make no pronouncements that he cannot square with His Holy Word. I will believe Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place when he repents of all the evil he has wrought since assuming office five years ago. I will believe Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place when he turns from his wicked ways, scrupulously follows the law of the land and listens not only for the voice of God but for the voice of the people he is sworn to serve.

Tony Perkins Rails Against Disney For Including Same-Sex Couple On 'Good Luck Charlie'

Family Research Council head Tony Perkins is joining other anti-gay activists in blasting the Disney Channel show “Good Luck Charlie” for daring to include a same-sex couple in one episode. “Good Luck Charlie” came under fire from One Million Moms, a wing of the American Family Association, which warned members that Disney will “corrupt the children’s network with LGBT content.”

Perkins declared victory over Disney, insisting without any evidence that “One Million Moms is flooding the channel with complaints.”

The FRC leader even made the baseless claim that “research says” same-sex parenting is harmful to kids.

He adds: “So it’s a little ironic that the show's called, ‘Good luck, Charlie.’ Without a dad, he'll need it.”

Perkins seems to have been so blinded by outrage in watching the show that he missed the fact that it is Charlie’s friend, and not Charlie herself, who has same-sex parents. And that Charlie is a girl.

When liberals took over the Disney Channel, they were hoping for a happy ending for their agenda. What they're getting is anything but. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you're looking for conservative values at Disney, it really is a small world after all. Producers made that clear when they introduced the channel's first same-sex couple to kids. After a year of planning, Disney finally made good on its promise, using the show "Good Luck Charlie" to give Taylor two moms. A spokesman says the show "was developed under the [advice] of child development experts..." But if Disney thinks that'll fly with parents, they've spent too much time in Fantasyland. OneMillionMoms is flooding the channel with complaints. Like us, they know what the research says: which is that kids who are deprived of a mom or dad grow up with significantly more emotional and academic problems. So it's a little ironic that the show's called, "Good luck, Charlie." Without a dad, he'll need it.

A Case Study In Why Religious Right Myths Never Die

Just last week, we noted that the story of Brynn Williams, a six-year old public school student who was supposedly banned from delivering her Christmas presentation in class because of its Christian content, was totally false.

This particular case was ginned up by a California-based group called Advocates for Faith & Freedom which has now decided, even though the entire case is bogus, to continue trying to make an issue out of it:

Legal group Advocates for Faith and Freedom is defending two California students who were censored by school officials when they shared their Christian faith.

The families of Isaiah Martinez and Brynn Williams asked for legal assistance after teachers prevented them from sharing the true meaning of Christmas ...

Williams, a Temecula Valley first grader, brought a Star of Bethlehem from her family's Christmas tree as a show-and-tell assignment, OneNewsNow reported.

The little girl was told by the teacher to sit down before she could share her story.

The legal group has scheduled meetings with each school district and is demanding that the students be allowed to pass out items with the Christmas story and to finish a presentation about Jesus without interruption.

"The pendulum has swung so far in the wrong direction that often school officials, teachers feel entitled to be able to express hostility toward Christian students in the faith," says Robert Tyler, general counsel at Advocates.

The Constitution does not permit that, says Tyler, and instead requires a "neutrality toward all religions."

Advocates is also demanding that each school district adopt a model policy that will protect the religious liberties of all students. The model policy would then be utilized nationwide.

The fundamental issue upon which AFF based its case has been revealed to be utterly false, but the organization is pressing forward nonetheless ... and this is exactly why we always says that Religious Right myths never, ever die.

Paul Vallely Denies 'Absolutely False' Coup Statements That He Absolutely Made

Former Army general turned right-wing activist Paul Vallely is vehemently denying the fact that he said he would support the overthrow of President Obama. He recently posted this brief statement on the homepage of his website:

MG Vallely Statement – Talk of Coup Support FALSE!

“Statements on the web and elsewhere that attribute me as supporting a coup are absolutely false. From the day I took my oath as a young Army lieutenant to this very day I have supported and defended the Constitution of the United States.

A coup is counter to the guiding principles laid out there. Disagreement and dissension are not! It’s time for change in America and I support that change – but only in a lawful, Constitutional manner.” - MG Paul E. Vallely (US Army-Ret.)

Unfortunately for Vallely, we have the audio from a Tea Party event at which he said that while he opposes an anti-Obama revolution, he would “certainly head it if we had to.”

Vallely is also promoting Operation American Spring, a rally with the goal of forcing Obama out of office, and has proposed a citizen’s arrest of the president along with various unconstitutional ways of removing Obama from office, such as a national recall vote.

The ex-general even believes that the “traditional process” of government is insufficient to remove Obama from office and called for an Egyptian-style uprising:

We are still waiting for Vallely to dispute the comments that he clearly made, rather than just offer a vague statement about how direct quotes of him calling for extralegal and unconstitutional means to remove the president from office are somehow “absolutely false.”

Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Bryan Fischer

One of the amazing things about monitoring the Religious Right on a daily basis is realizing the frequency with which right-wing figures engage in abject hypocrisy, seemingly unaware of their own past behavior or public statements.

Take Bryan Fischer's radio program today, for instance, when he and a caller named Bobby had a somewhat contentious exchange stemming from a recent comment made by Paul Reville, the former secretary of education for Massachusetts, was said that "the children belong to all of us."

The debate between Fischer and Bobby was not particularly interesting, but what was interesting is that when Fischer returned from the break, he admitted that he might have been a little too hard on Bobby. Fischer didn't necessarily think he had been unfair and defending his behavior during the previous segment by insisting that the caller had needed some "tough love" because he was refusing to answer Fischer's simple questions.

"He was trying to avoid answer the question," Fischer said, in his own defense. "And that's why I wasn't going to let him skate on the question ... You needed a little tough love there buddy, because you were trying to skate on what was a simple and straightforward and honest question and it was my responsibility to kind of hold you to account for facing the truth":

Now let us contrast Fischer's "tough love" approach to callers on his own show to his behavior when he appeared on Alan Colmes' radio program a few years ago where he literally refused to answer any of Colmes' question, simply repeating the same talking point over and over and over again because he did not like the line of questioning. 

To top it off, Fischer then complained that Colmes' interview was nothing but "gotcha journalism," complaining that "there was an answer that he was going to pester me until I gave it and then he could grab it and say 'gotcha,'" which is why Fischer insisted on simply parroting his talking points over and over again:

Today, Fischer literally did this very thing to a caller on his show and defended his actions on the grounds that the caller needed some tough love because he was refusing to answer the questions. But when the roles were reversed, Fischer was outraged because it was nothing more than "gotcha journalism" when it happened to him.

Peter LaBarbera Outraged That Disney Is 'Nonchalant About Exposing' Kids To 'Homosexual Parenting'

Looks like the American Family Association’s One Million Moms isn’t the only group upset about the Disney show “Good Luck Charlie” featuring a lesbian couple.

Naturally, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality is also urging his followers to contact Disney to tell the company that that “homosexuality is aberrant and wrong behavior.”

“[Y]ou don’t want to model sinful relationships as normative to your kids–YOUR morality and faith, and your child’s innocence, are being undermined by Disney,” LaBarbera warns.

LaBarbera is especially disturbed by the fact that the parents in “Good Luck Charlie” do not seem disturbed or outraged that their daughter’s friend has two moms.

“Note how the main mother character, Amy (Leigh Allyn Baker) is nonchalant about exposing her daughter (Charlie) to homosexual parenting. (Amy goes on to call the lesbians a ‘great couple’),” LaBarbera comments. “Also note how she apparently never discussed the “lesbian moms” visit with her husband Bob (Eric Allen Kramer–of course, the dumber one). Get the message? A visit by homosexual parents is so inconsequential it doesn’t even merit a family discussion!”

Knight: America Becoming 'World's Great Satan' & 'Nuclear Waste Dump' Thanks To Gay Rights

Conservative columnist Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union is offended that “our Muslim enemies falsely describe” America as the “world’s Great Satan,” but he agrees that we are certainly on our way to becoming just that. “We might consider asking our ruling elites in Hollywood, New York and Washington to give the mullahs less evidence for that claim,” he writes in the Washington Times.

The ACRU senior fellow alleges that America’s “ever-coarsening, ‘progressive’ popular culture and the ruling elites” are using gay rights and immigrant rights to turn the country into a “nuclear waste dump.”

The trouble with liberals is not just that they eventually run out of other people’s money, as Margaret Thatcher observed. It’s that they find new ways every day to project their own dysfunctional worldview on the rest of us.

It’s like living next door to a nuclear-waste dump run by the Bumpusses. You’d like to ignore it, but shards of spent fuel keep falling into your yard and setting your dog on fire. This is how non-progressive Americans increasingly view our ever-coarsening, “progressive” popular culture and the ruling elites who promote it.

They’re aghast at not only the moral meltdown, but the rise of dictatorial executive power in Washington, as explained to us by the president in his State of the Union address, in which he reduced Congress to a helpmate at best.



The worst sin of all in the age of iron-fisted, liberal “tolerance” is to react to moral degradation by failing to facilitate it. If you get caught in a nonfestive mood, like the Christian bakery owners and wedding photographers who think the First Amendment protects their right not to be forced to celebrate sin, you are in legal jeopardy.

Coming to your state, unless you live in Jerry Brown’s California or Chris Christie’s New Jersey, which already have this abomination, is a law that says right is wrong and that wrong is mandatory.

California’s statute, which the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld last week, denies the right of parents to take children to licensed therapists to deal with unwanted same-sex desires.

Parents are allowed only to enlist therapists who counsel children to be “gay.” This is America, land of the free?



In such a culture, it’s easy for the president and his media allies to stoke the fires of envy and spread more dependency. It works even better when the people are stoned.

Having softened us up with cultural rot, the left is driving for total political control, with little effective opposition.

Failing to hold the administration accountable for a multitude of scandals, the Republican leadership is now trying to figure out how to raise the national debt and to turn 11 million undocumented Democrats into voters.



Vladimir Putin may be exploiting our moral decline for his own purposes, but to many weary Americans, his remarks ring true.

We are not yet the world’s Great Satan, as our militant Muslim enemies falsely describe us, but we might consider asking our ruling elites in Hollywood, New York and Washington to give the mullahs less evidence for that claim.

Beck: Coke's Super Bowl Ad Was An 'In Your Face' Effort To 'Divide People'

Glenn Beck was pleasantly surprised by last night's Super Bowl because he didn't witness anything that upset or offended him except, of course, for the Coca-Cola commercial featuring a rendition of "America The Beautiful" sung in various languages.

That ad, Beck declared on his radio program today, was "an in your face" effort "to divide people."

The entire point of the ad was, according to Beck, to send the message that "if you don't like it, if you're offended by it, then you're a racist ... That's all this is, is to divide people":

Dave Agema Is Fighting Gay Rights To Save America From Destruction

In an appearance last month on a conservative talk radio show, embattled RNC Committeeman Dave Agema defended the anti-gay comments that caused prominent Republicans to call for his resignation.

Agema insisted that his anti-gay stance has nothing to do with animus towards gay people, he just believes that gay rights will doom America.

The former Michigan state legislator said on The Renegade River Show that gay rights weaken the family “and when you start destroying the family unit in a nation, the nation starts to crumble from within.”

“Look at the Greek empire, look at the Roman empire,” Agema continued. “Basically, I am trying to protect America.”

He also maintained that schools are “teaching the homosexual lifestyle, how to be a homosexual in some sort of class that they’re teaching that we’re paying for,” and argued that gay marriage had major repercussions in Denmark, Netherlands and Switzerland (a country that has not legalized gay marriage).

Liberty Counsel Fears Prom, Losing Freedom To Be Abstinent Before Marriage

As Valentine’s Day approaches, the conservative activists at Liberty Counsel are once again promoting the competing “Day of Purity,” an opportunity for those “who strive for sexual purity an opportunity to stand together in opposition to a culture of moral decline.”

Liberty Counsel’s previous attempt to make the Day of Purity cool for kids, a video featuring “Purity Bear,” has unfortunately been removed from YouTube following widespread Internet mockery (but can still be found on Vimeo).

Now, the group is trying to make abstinence-only-before-marriage hip by calling it the “politically incorrect” [PDF] thing to do. In a handout [PDF] about the event, Liberty Counsel even makes the absurd claim that supporters of abstinence before marriage are losing their “right to speak and be heard.”

Defending your rights and the rights of others to express their beliefs and act in accordance with those rights. There are those in today’s culture that are trying to silence those who believe that sex should be saved until marriage between a husband and a wife. They say they want tolerance and diversity, but what they really want is to silence anyone who believes in traditional values and traditional family. You have the right to speak and be heard. Be mature and speak out for what you know is right and true.

We are not exactly sure where it is now a criminal act to be abstinent or to encourage others to be abstinent.

Maybe in the same jurisdictions where Liberty Counsel attorney Matt Barber fears he may soon be forced to choose between participating in gay marriage and death.

Liberty Counsel has more fun tips for the Day of Purity, including a “True Friend” guide [PDF] that warns against maintaining friendships with people who do “not share the same value system.” The group also offers great some great prom theme ideas [PDF], such as “Chlamydia”:

Pat Robertson Explains Divine Genocide

Genocide is okay if its purpose is to stop man-animal sex, Pat Robertson explained today on the 700 Club.

When a viewer asked the televangelist about Old Testament accounts “where God told his people to wipe out cities and take their lands,” noting that it “sounds like Islam to me,” Robertson responded that God was actually showing mercy on the annihilated peoples because otherwise they would pass their sinful ways onto their children and grandchildren.

Assuming you have a culture that has 1,000 really bad people in it — they’re murderers, they’re thieves, they’re rapists, they’re having incest, you name it they are doing everything horrible — now if they have children, what’s going to happen? Instead of having 1,000, you’ll have 3,000 or 4,000; then — nothing has changed them — then they’ll pass it on to the next generation and the next thing you know you’ve got 10,000 or 20,000 of them and if it keeps on going you’re going to have a million of them. So what’s the most merciful thing for a loving God to do? It’s to take the thousand and get rid of them. And that’s what He did.

“It sounds cruel but in the long run it’s more merciful,” he continued. “Further, He didn’t want his people to be contaminated by those people…. They had sex with animals, they had incest, they did all of these terrible things and they offered their children as sacrifices to their gods, it was horrible what they did.”

Daubenmire: 'I Believe It's Time For Us To, Once Again, Ban Pornography'

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire was on his computer recently when he received an offer to view pornography on the internet and, while it was unwanted, it was also was very, very tempting to him ... so obviously, the only solution to this sort of temptation is to completely ban and criminalize pornography.

"This may seem really radical to you, but we seem to be rational people here in America," Daubenmire declared. "I believe it's time for us to, once again, ban pornography."

Comparing it to smoking, drug use, and drunk driving, Daubenmire proclaimed that pornography is "the greatest scourge in America" and called for those who produce it and view it to be arrested:

Pat Robertson Insists That He's Not 'Some Sort Of Right-Wing Extremist'

Last week, Pat Robertson spoke with Glenn Beck's "The Blaze" to address the statement he made last year that there was nothing sinful about people who are transgender. In the interview, Robertson stood by his previous assertion, which was mildly surprising ... but what was more surprising is Robertson's belief that he is in no way an "extremist" but is, in fact, quite "balanced" and "mainstream":

Evangelist and businessman Pat Robertson is no stranger to controversy, but he recently told TheBlaze that he believes some of his critics have spread a major fallacy about his political standing.

“Well, I think the misconception is that I’m some sort of right-wing extremist,” Robertson said. That, he said, just isn’t the case. “I’m a graduate of Yale Law School and I’m a businessman.”

Running down his credentials and accomplishments (he founded Regent University, the American Center for Law and Justice and the Christian Broadcasting Network, among other organizations) Robertson said it’s easy to make a caricature of someone to score political points and to dub him or her “extreme” as his critics have done.

In contrast to his media portrait, Robertson believes that he’s actually “extremely balanced.”

“I’m what you’d call a Jeffersonian Democrat [who believes in] fundamental … biblical values,” Robertson said. “That isn’t extreme, that’s mainstream.”

We'd just like to say that if Pat Robertson does not qualify as "some sort of right-wing extremist," then that phrase has no meaning.

Rep. Jim Bridenstine Shrugs Off Questioner Who Called For Obama To Be Killed

At a breakfast event with the Tea Party organization Tulsa 9:12 Project last week, Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) saw no need to rebuke or even disagree with a questioner who said that President Obama should be executed.

“Obama, he’s not president, as far as I’m concerned, he should be executed as an enemy combatant,” the questioner said, before asking the congressman about “the Muslims that he is shipping into our country through pilots and commercial jets” (a claim based on a bizarre right-wing conspiracy theory).

“This guy is a criminal and nobody’s stopped him,” she declared.

Bridenstine didn’t respond to her call for the president’s execution, but agreed that Obama is “lawless” and said he rules “by decree” and through the United Nations.

Agema: Stop 'Shoving This Idea Down Our Throat' Of The 'Homosexual Lifestyle'

If Dave Agema were to lose his post at the Republican National Committee over recent anti-gay and anti-Muslim comments, he could probably find a job at the American Family Association – a group that can’t seem to get enough of his bigoted remarks. After appearing on Focal Point with AFA spokesman Bryan Fischer, yesterday Agema spoke to the AFA’s governmental affairs director Sandy Rios on her talk show.

As Kyle has already pointed out, the embattled GOP activist holds a warped view of the First Amendment: “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.”

While speaking to Rios, Agema continued to insist that calls for him to resign from the RNC are direct attacks on his right to freedom of speech. He vowed not to resign, lest the culture keep “shoving this idea down our throat that we have to accept this homosexual lifestyle.”

When they use the rules of Saul Alinksy that basically you cut off support from your networks, isolate the person through cruel [sic] and ridicule and so forth, what happens is they fear. The biggest thing is right now we’ve got Hollywood, you’ve got the news media, you’ve got ignorant school courses, you’ve got the Grammys now that are shoving this idea down our throat that we have to accept this homosexual lifestyle.



The whole thing really boils down to the freedom of speech, I think that’s what is stopping me. I put it on my Facebook – an article on freedom of speech and how political correctness is taking away our freedom of speech and that is directed mostly by Hollywood and the news media are [sic] telling us what political correctness is and that’s I think what is really hurting this country.

Another Math And Reading Comprehension Lesson For David Barton

One of the most annoying things about David Barton, aside from his incessant tendency to blindside his co-host Rick Green by asking him questions to which he could not possibly be expected to know the answer, is the fact that Barton rarely bothers to cite any source for the answers that he provides (nor for the "facts" that make up his historical presentations, for that matter).

We have become convinced that one of the reasons Barton generally does not provide the source of his "facts" is because, if he did, people might actually go and look them up on their own and realize that Barton cannot be trusted to accurately relay information because of his tendency to utterly misrepresent even the simplest of facts.

On today's "Wallbuilders Live," Barton once again provided a perfect example of this when he claimed that three-quarters of all abortions performed in America are done on young women ages sixteen and under:

Barton: What demographic group accounts for the largest percentage of abortions? Let me give you [a hint]: this demographic group accounts for seventy-five percent of all abortions ...

Green: I'm going to guess over [the age of] thirty?

Barton: Nope. Gotta go the other way. Seventy-five percent of all abortions are performed on teenagers below the age of sixteen ... Remember, one of the problems we have with abortion clinics is they do not report statutory rape, they do abortions instead. So a young girl comes in pregnant at eleven or twelve or thirteen, that's supposed to be reported as statutory rape because it's well below the age of consent but rather than reporting it, they simply do an abortion ... You have seventy-five percent of all abortions being performed on teens who are sixteen and under.

The figure that Barton cites (or rather, misrepresents) comes from a recent report and presentation from the Family Research Council's Marriage and Religion Research Institute which found that "almost 3/4 of abortions are to women who initiated sex at age 16 or younger - 40% of women who begin sexual intercourse very early (12-13-14) will have abortions."

The report did not find, as Barton asserted, that three-quarters of all abortions are done on women under the age of sixteen, but rather that almost three-quarters of women who have had abortions became sexually active at the age of sixteen or before.

That is obviously a pretty significant difference and one that "a former math teacher" like Barton ought to understand ... provided, of course, that Barton actually cares about providing accurate information, which certainly does not seem to be a priority for him.

Harvey: Homosexuality Is Just Like Anorexia

As Kyle noted earlier, Linda Harvey of Mission America joined the American Family Association’s Tim Wildmon and Ed Vitagliano today for a riveting discussion about homosexuality and Harvey’s new book, “Maybe He’s Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality.”

But the informative conversation didn’t end with the anti-gay activists’ thoughts on “gaydar.” Later in the interview, they moved on discussing to how homosexuality is like anorexia, a theory that Harvey apparently lays out in her book.

Vitagliano agreed with Harvey’s assessment that just as anorexic people are “driven by an impulse not to eat” because they believe they are overweight, gay people are under the false impression that they are gay and so think they are attracted to people of the same sex. “It’s such a perfect and biblical view of a person who sees themselves as homosexual,” he said.

“Your body is made to eat, otherwise you will starve; with homosexuals, your body is not made for the kind of relations they have, it’s made for heterosexuality,” Harvey added later in the interview. “We’re basically all heterosexuals.”

She concluded that both people with eating disorders and gay people are “deluded” and on a path to “self-destruction.”

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.
