Annette Bosworth, a South Dakota Republican Senate candidate, accused Right Wing Watch yesterday of “dishonesty” for reporting on an image she shared on her official Facebook page which compares people who receive food assistance to wild animals.

Last month, a transgender teacher in Texas was removed from the classroom after parents complained and, predictably, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt fully supports the move because there is no reason to allow "transgendered perverts to stand in front of children and recruit them into sexual perversion."
While addressing the issue on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program, Klingenschmitt said there was "a demonic spirit inside of this man who is lying to you ... there's a spirit of lying when a man claims to be a woman and he's not a woman" before praying on behalf of the parents who rose up to "defend their children's right to not be violated by this pervert":
The American Family Association’s Sandy Rios is pointing to the tornado that hit the AFA’s home of Tupelo, Mississippi, yesterday as evidence that humans shouldn’t try to combat climate change.
Rios said on her radio show yesterday that tornadoes reflect the power of God, and therefore there is no point in trying to combat climate change because we are mere mortals.
“We are ants in the face of this, and so then for us to talk about controlling the weather and global — somehow if we drive different SUVs or don’t emit too much CO2 — somehow we can stop these phenomena that are so beyond our comprehension and ability we can’t do anything except film them,” she said. “What can you do, wave your fist at a tornado and say, ‘You’re not going to get me, we’re Tupelo Strong!’?”
We guess Rios prefers the approach of Pat Robertson, who believes that tornadoes can be stopped through prayer.
Appearing last week on the TV web show America’s Survival, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality president Peter LaBarbera attacked Modern Family and other TV shows for portraying gays as “the most noble” characters.
LaBarbera seemed to chide Modern Family both for including a gay couple and not focusing on the couple enough: “We see Modern Family where you’ve got two homosexual men raising an infant or a toddler like it’s nothing, like it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Of course, that’s intentional. They don’t even make that the main part of the show. This is manipulation. Americans are being manipulated on a daily basis by Big Hollywood and Big Media.”
LaBarbera also knocked Fox News for providing insufficient airtime for ex-gays. “When are we going to see a content, happy, ex-gay in a Hollywood movie?” he demanded.
“When is Sean Hannity, Megyn Kelly or Bill O’Reilly going to have an ex-gay on Fox?”
“Fox is promoting black conservatives, which is a good thing,” he added. “Why aren’t they promoting these politically incorrect people? Why have they never promoted ex-gays on Fox?”
Host Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media, who last year demanded that CPAC hold a panel discussion on why gay people are “prone to violence, terror, and treason,” said that gay people or straight supporters of gay rights can’t be conservative.
After arguing that CNN host S.E. Cupp is “parading around and posing as a conservative,” Kincaid said that “you cannot be a conservative in the traditional sense and be a homosexual, you cannot be a conservative in the traditional sense and promote homosexual marriage and all these other libertine and left-wing causes.”
Co-host Jerry Kenney later said people should begin “referring to gay marriages as unnatural marriages,” but even that didn’t go far enough for LaBarbera.
“I don’t want to call it marriage,” he said. “You could look at a tree and call it a car, that doesn’t mean that’s a car.”
This week’s Capitol Hill lobby day for evangelical pastors who support immigration reform did not sit well with Rick Scarborough and Robert Knight of Tea Party Unity. In a joint post on TPU’s website, the two write that these evangelical pastors want to “empower the Left to finally end the world’s longest experiment in liberty and self-government” and to “usher in an oppressive era that could make the current lawlessness seem like a golden age.”
“[S]ome of the pastors are spectacularly naïve while others are knowingly trying to destroy the two-party system and bring America under Godless socialism,” they write.
They also report that they wholeheartedly agree with Rep. Dana Rohrabacher’s remark to Roll Call that “if [the pastors] really wanted to help people who are here illegally or in bad situations they, they want to pay for their health insurance and everything, then I would be saying how wonderful that is. But if they are advocating that the government do that, then it will break our bank and destroy our country.”
A lot of well-meaning but frankly wrong evangelical brothers and sisters are pressuring Congress to enact what would amount to immigration amnesty. This would empower the Left to finally end the world’s longest experiment in liberty and self-government. It is that serious, friends. This is misplaced compassion at its worst, and it could usher in an oppressive era that could make the current lawlessness seem like a golden age.
The group is acting under the auspices of the Evangelical Immigration Table, whose leadership includes Marxist Jim Wallis of Sojourners, who World magazine editor Marvin OIasky caught in bald-faced lies denying billionaire financier George Soros’ heavy funding of the group. As such, some of the pastors are spectacularly naïve while others are knowingly trying to destroy the two-party system and bring America under Godless socialism.
On his radio broadcast yesterday, Glenn Beck restated his belief that the United States is engaged in wholesale Baal worship without even knowing it.
As Beck sees it, ancient Baal worshipers engaged in sexual perversion and child sacrifice all in order to please their god and receive his blessings and that is exactly what America is doing today where abortion is legal and sexual perversion is running rampant.
"The signs are always the same," Beck said. "We are practicing the same thing."
"Who are we anymore?," he wondered. "It's sexual excess for anything goes at any time and the more, the better ... You have child sacrifice - you don't want your child after having the orgies, you don't want your child, don't worry, you can just sacrifice to the god - we have that through Planned Parenthood. We have sexual excess beyond imagination just twenty years ago."
And just like the ancient Baal worshipers, we are doing all of this in order to get decent weather.
"And what were they sacrificing for?," Beck asked. "They were sacrificing so the weather patterns would be good. Think of that. This is exactly what we're doing! Exactly!"
We have no idea what he is talking about.
Former congressman Allen West thinks the recent media coverage and outrage about Donald Sterling’s racist remarks is allowing President Obama to get away with his own “incessant lies, deceit and abject failures,” such as the supposed Benghazi “scandal.”
Unsurprisingly, West wouldn’t be the first conservative to link the Sterling scandal to the administration’s response to the Benghazi attack.
Where is the cultural, public outrage over a behind closed door comment such as referring to the State of Israel as an “apartheid state?” Probably most of America doesn’t know who said it or even what “aparteid” [sic] means.
Or how about the outrage that should have come when our own president leaned over to then-Russian President Medvedev sayng [sic], “Tell Putin that after my reelection I will have more flexibility” and of course Medvedev said, “I will tell Vladimir.” And now we know what that “flexibility” has allowed.
Aren’t those “private” chats reflective of behavior that is dangerous for the United States?
Or how about the lies and deceit of President Obama on healthcare and of course Benghazi, which we now know a video had nothing to do with.
Has our culture devolved to the point that the private statements of an NBA owner draws more outrage than the lies and deceit of the President of the United States?
Donald Sterling’s behavior is despicable, but so is that of President Barack Hussein Obama — and whose abhorrent behavior has more impact on our country?
The difference is that the media lead us along like sheep to the slaughter, turning us into reactionary, shallow thinking, low information voters along the way. We know more about Sterling than Benghazi — or the IRS scandal.
Sterling is a jerk, an unlikeable fella, but is he guilty of a crime that demands his property be confiscated? Uh, no.
We’re told however that Obama is a likable fella –regardless of the incessant lies, deceit and abject failures. What is happening to American culture and values?
I don’t like jerks, but I really don’t like jerks who are liars, do you?
700 Club host Pat Robertson said today that “something has got to be done” to “free” the country from the “termites” in the Obama administration.
Robertson warned that there is “a deliberate attempt of the Obama administration and their allies” to harm the economy due to their supposed hostility to America: “Something has got to be done, we have to get free of these people because it’s like a mass of termites that is eating away at the structure of this great edifice we call the United States of America and they’re burrowing in and they’re getting paid to destroy us.”
Earlier this month, Robertson called on viewers to “pray to be delivered from this president.”
Gohmert was criticizing Kerry’s remark that Israel could become an apartheid state if it fails to reach a peace accord with the Palestinians. Two former Israeli prime ministers and the current Justice Minister have also warned that Israel risks becoming an apartheid state in the future.
The Texas congressman derided Kerry for his “ignorant” comments and claimed that the secretary of state has “effectively cursed Israel.”
“It’s Israel that has fought against such racism and hatred,” Gohmert said. “Secretary of Kerry stands for those who support the destruction of Israel.
“He should not be speaking for this nation. He needs to stand down before he brings judgment against us.”
Previously, Gohmert warned that America will “be judged and it isn't going to be pretty” if American diplomats broker a two-state solution.
A Republican candidate for South Dakota’s open Senate seat on Monday likened people who receive food assistance to animals, implying that both become dependent on handouts.
Dr. Annette Bosworth, a first-time candidate who styles herself after Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Steve King, shared an image on her campaign’s Facebook page insisting that the message of a “please do not feed the animals” sign in parks should be applied to food stamp recipients.
WorldNetDaily columnist Burt Prelutsky is sick and tired of all the left-leaning commentators on Fox News.
Prelutsky devotes his most recent column to complaining that the right-wing network isn’t right-wing enough and demanding that the network host only conservative guests.
“It would be far more enlightening to hear Republicans share their differences over immigration reform, same-sex marriages, gun laws, health care and foreign policy,” he writes.
Prelutsky credits conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham with coming up with this “intelligent solution” in a recent interview with Howard Kurtz, although Ingraham actually said nothing of the sort.
Recently, Laura Ingraham was a guest on Howard Kurtz’s Sunday Fox show, “Media Buzz.” She offered what I thought was an intelligent solution to a problem that has been annoying me for some time.
As we all know, Fox remains an oasis on TV, the only news network that isn’t in the tank for Obama and the liberals. However, in attempting to comply with Roger Ailes’ desire that Fox be “fair and balanced,” too many shows have fallen into the habit of teaming up a liberal and a conservative, and having them spend five or 10 raucous minutes shouting over each other and trading insults. We wind up with a lot of heat and absolutely no light.
Ingraham’s suggestion was to unload the liberals and, instead, invite conservatives on board and let them hash out their differences. She’s right. We already know the liberal positions because we read them in every newspaper and we hear them trumpeted every day over at the three major networks, along with CNN and MSNBC.
It would be far more enlightening to hear Republicans share their differences over immigration reform, same-sex marriages, gun laws, health care and foreign policy. What’s more, we would be spared ever again having to listen to the likes of Juan Williams, Geraldo Rivera, Bob Beckel and Alan Colmes flapping their gums.
On today's "News With Views" commentary, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire fumed that gays, who he claimed represent just 3% of the population, are controlling this entire nation while the 80% who are Christian remain utterly silent.
"Why is the 3% pushing around the 80%?," Daubenmire asked rhetorically, before answering his own question by bizarrely asserting that religion and politics "are, in fact, the same" thing.
As Daubenmire sees it, politics is the "playing field" upon which religious values are supposed to be enacted, declaring that, as such, "we are a theocracy" because we are "one nation under God."
"We are a theocracy," he proclaimed. "God is in control."
As such, Christians must stand up and fight back against the gays who "are pushing us around."
"The homosexuals have seized marriage, they have seized the job market," he warned. "You speak out against them, it is a pock (sic) upon your family, it's a black mark that you'll never be able to get out from under, you're a hate monger and a homophobe and a bigot"
While sitting down with Alex Jones of InfoWars today, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah defended Cliven Bundy but chastised Donald Sterling for his racist remarks.
Farah explained that unlike Bundy, Sterling is definitely a racist because he’s a “lifelong Democrat” and a “big time Democrat.” Jones asked, “What would have happened if the owner of the Clippers had been a Republican?”
Farah — whose media outlet is involved in a fight with Google over racist content and has actually defended both Bundy and Sterling — went on to say that racism doesn’t exist in the GOP. “I know lots of conservative people and Republicans and unless you get into the Republican establishment, country club Republicans, you just don’t find racism there,” he said.
While speaking at the NRA Convention last weekend, Sarah Palin said that if she was president, waterboarding would be "how we baptize terrorists." Predictably, Bryan Fischer came to her defense on his radio show today, saying that Palin was just being "cute" and "clever and funny," mainly because "waterboarding it not torture."
Bizarrely, Fischer insisted that waterboarding is nothing like pulling out fingernails or shocking people with a car battery precisely because people are willing to undergo waterboarding in order to demonstrate that it is torture.
As Fischer sees it, if waterboarding really was torture, then nobody would ever volunteer to be subjected to it. Since people have done so, Fischer argued, then it must not be "real torture."
As such, people who are outraged by what Palin said "ought to just kind of lighten up just a little bit":
InfoWars host Alex Jones may be feuding with Glenn Beck, but he appears to be emulating the former Fox News pundit’s drift into televangelism. Jones spoke today with WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah and the two agreed that the United States is experiencing God’s wrath.
“We have become a decadent, wicked country and we’re going to be judged,” Jones said. Farah interjected that “this is judgment, what we’re experiencing now is judgment.”
Later, Jones added that “the judgment’s only beginning though, I have a real feeling of dread in my spirit about what’s coming.”
On the radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts spent a segment attacking politicians who are now announcing their support for gay marriage after having publicly opposed it just a few years ago. Saying that if the issue really is "the civil rights issue of our day," politicians should have been willing to stand on principle for it when the issue was unpopular instead of opposing it then only to endorse it now that polls show growing public support.
Among the targets of Beck's ire is Hillary Clinton, whom he declared would soon announce that she is a lesbian if it will help her get elected in 2016.
"I'm telling you," Beck said, "Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk if it becomes popular":
In a radio interview on Friday, Creation Museum founder Ken Ham attacked evolution as a “religion” that has “brainwashed” its adherents into thinking that they are observing a scientific theory.
Ham, a Young Earth Creationist, criticized Christians who believe in evolution by touching on the Creationist talking point that the Bible is the only eyewitness account of the history of the world.
“A lot of these Christian leaders, when they say the word ‘day’ [in Genesis] can’t mean an ordinary day because of science, it’s not observational science they’re referring to, it’s man’s historical science. In other words, man’s beliefs about evolution and millions of years,” Ham told VCY America’s Crosstalk.
“They’re taking man’s religion of millions of years and saying, ‘That’s why you can’t believe what the Bible says.’ If the word ‘day’ in Genesis 1 means an ordinary day and you say it can’t because of what man is saying, then you’ve just said God’s word is fallible and it’s man’s word that is infallible. No, it’s the other way around.”
From the very beginning of the standoff, Alan Keyes has been a vocal supporter of Cliven Bundy and his anti-government allies and he has not backed away one bit even after revelations that Bundy is an unmitigated racist.
In fact, Keyes is actually defending Bundy, saying that he is not at all racist because it is an undisputed fact that black people are worse off now than they ever were during slavery.
While speaking with radio host Peter Boyles, Keyes said that Bundy's remarks were not racist because Bundy "simply spoke about what he observed" happening to black families in America and that "in statistical terms ... black folks are worse off than they have been in this history of the United States."
"Hear that?" Keyes thundered. "Worse off than they have ever been! And since that includes slavery, it's not racist to point it out":
Beset by legal troubles, former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell has joined Liberty University as a visiting professor in government.
In a press release yesterday, Liberty president Jerry Falwell Jr. (son of the school’s founder, televangelist Jerry Falwell) praises McDonnell’s conservative bona fides and welcomes him to Liberty University’s Jesse Helms School of Government — yes, that Jesse Helms.
McDonnell, a longtime friend of the university, said he is delighted to contribute to Liberty’s world-class academic programs and to train students to make a significant positive impact at every level of government.
Liberty President Jerry Falwell said the university will tap McDonnell’s extensive career experience in business, law, public policy, and government.
“Gov. McDonnell will add another dimension to the educational experience of Liberty students by teaching leadership,” Falwell said. “He achieved great success as governor in making Virginia one of the nation’s most business-friendly and fiscally sound states while getting people to work together for the common good. These experiences uniquely qualify him to teach our students about every aspect of serving in public office.”
Dr. Shawn Akers, dean of the Helms School of Government, said the governor’s recent visit was a pleasant surprise to the students, who were eager to learn from a seasoned leader.
“The students’ eyes lit up when he walked into the class. They were so excited to hear directly from someone who has been on the frontlines of the important public policy battles in America,” Akers said. “The Helms School is proud to welcome Governor McDonnell, who has a proven record in public policy and conservative activism, and who shares in the biblical principles and servant leadership that are so important to Liberty University.”
Shawn Akers, the dean of the Helms School and McDonnell’s new boss is best known here at Right Wing Watch for his extreme anti-gay rhetoric, such as his comparison of gay rights activists to Nazis and his claim that the military now imposes a “don’t ask, don’t tell policy” on Christian service members.
Akers has also derided anti-bullying programs as “a form of indoctrination and reeducation that smacks of socialist and communist countries” and accused gays of bullying Christians, whom he called “the weakest members of our society.” He even believes that “the homosexual activist community” is a religion.
McDonnell is a graduate of Pat Robertson’s Regent University (then called CBN University), where he wrote a now-notorious thesis, and it was widely rumored that he might lead Regent after he left office.
Larry Klayman, who fears that the “black-Muslim” President Obama is triggering a race war, said in a column yesterday that anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy can’t possibly be a racist because Bundy didn’t come across as a racist during a conversation he had with Klayman last week.
“From my interaction with Cliven, it became clear to me that he is a person who speaks what is in his mind and is not a racist, and that, being a rancher in a remote area of Nevada, never was exposed to the political correctness of the city slickers in Las Vegas for instance,” Klayman recalled in a RenewAmerica column.
Klayman also repeated his call to overthrow Obama over the Bundy standoff, which he described as “a turning point in modern U.S. history” and “the first major physical manifestation of the peaceful second American revolution.”
I was on my way to the Bundy ranch last Thursday to meet with the family to see if I could be of some help in their epic land battle with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). After a government confrontation a week or so ago where the Bundy's exercised their constitutional and God-given rights of self-defense under the Second Amendment, they stood down President Obama's and Senator Harry Reid's armed BLM thugs, who tased, assaulted, and battered members of the Bundy family over their cattle in an obvious effort to force them off the land.
When I arrived at the ranch, I spoke with Cliven about the comments and suggested that he clarify his remarks immediately since, after talking with him, it seemed that what he was trying to say was that black people had been so poorly treated by the government, as he had been, that ironically they may have been better off under slavery. He was trying to equate welfare and going on the government dole, which takes away a person's self esteem and puts then out to pasture like cattle, with his own plight. From my interaction with Cliven, it became clear to me that he is a person who speaks what is in his mind and is not a racist, and that, being a rancher in a remote area of Nevada, never was exposed to the political correctness of the city slickers in Las Vegas for instance. For him, the term "negro" was what he had learned as a boy, when that term was widely used by even such civil rights icons as Rev. Martin Luther King. He was obviously unaware that the likes of other reverends – albeit phony members of the cloth – Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, had coined the term "African-American," many years after Rev. King's death.
Cliven Bundy's remarks, whether anyone agrees with the way he expressed his thoughts or not, do not negate the importance of the successful patriotic showdown at Nevada's equivalent of the OK Corral. The hard and irrefutable fact is that for the first time in many decades the American people stood down an ever growing oppressive government, which thinks and acts as if it can do as it pleases, undoubtedly for ulterior corrupt purposes.
The successful stand-off at the Bundy ranch is a turning point in modern U.S. history, and I left the ranch that day vowing do what I could to further the first major physical manifestation of the peaceful second American revolution.
Stay tuned. In the words of Kris Kristofferson and Janis Joplin of another rebellious era in America history, freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose. We the People have had it with our present government and indeed have nothing left to lose to restore liberty to our nation.
