Bryan Fischer Explains Why America Exists

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer worried that if President Obama is re-elected, "I think there's a real grave question about whether there will even be a country left to save by 2016" and that is bad for everyone on Earth because the entire reason that America exists is because God established this nation in order to "show what a nation that follows the Scriptures and the God of the Scriptures can be ... to provide a model to the rest of the world of what a culture looks like when it is stepped in the spirit of the Lord" and spread the Gospel around the world:  

Sally Kern, Who Says Homosexuality is 'More Dangerous' than Terrorism, to Headline Conservative Conference

Oklahoma Republican state representative Sally Kern made national news several years ago when she claimed that the “homosexual agenda” is “the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam.” While she argued that her remarks were taken out of context, Kern just last year charged that homosexuality is “more dangerous because it will tear down the moral fiber of this nation.” Homosexuality is something we “have to deal with every day,” Kern said, “Fortunately we don’t have to deal with a terrorist attack every day.”

She has also maintained that homosexuality should be criminalized and will lead to bestiality and pedophilia, along with destroying America. “We do have an enemy who wants to destroy us,” she told Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, “They are using sexual perversion to destroy the future of America, the future of our children, and we don’t have a minute to lose.”

All of these extremist anti-gay statements have made Kern a good fit for Concerned Women for America’s “Take a Stand” rally [PDF] at Oklahoma City’s Rock Church. Also speaking will be Rep. James Lankford, who said that homosexuality is a choice and employers should be able to fire someone simply for being gay, and Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt.

Listen as Kern maintains that homosexuality is America’s “biggest threat” and “more dangerous” than terrorism:

You know if you just look at it in practical terms, which has destroyed and ended the life of more people? Terrorism attack here in America or HIV/AIDS? In the last twenty years, fifteen to twenty years, we’ve had maybe three terrorist attacks on our soil with a little over 5,000 people regrettably losing their lives. In the same time frame, there have been hundreds of thousands who have died because of having AIDS. So which one’s the biggest threat? And you know, every day our young people, adults too, but especially our young people, are bombarded at school, in movies, in music, on TV, in the mall, in magazines, they’re bombarded with ‘homosexuality is normal and natural.’ It’s something they have to deal with every day. Fortunately we don’t have to deal with a terrorist attack every day, and that’s what I mean.



It’s more dangerous, and yes I think that it’s also more dangerous because it will tear down the moral fiber of this nation. We were founded as a nation upon the principles of religion and morality, if we take those out from under our society we will lose what has made us a great nation, we will no longer be a virtuous people, which we see happening already. And without virtue this nation will not survive.

Barber: Personhood Amendments are Just Like Efforts to Free the Slaves

Earlier this year, the Oklahoma Supreme Court unanimously struck down efforts to place a personhood amendment on the ballot that would declare embryos to be "persons" from the moment of conception, ruling that it was "clearly unconstitutional." That decision prompted Liberty Counsel to file a petition with the United States Supreme Court asking the Court to hear the case because it "presents an historic opportunity for the Court to address the issue of a state’s right to amend its own constitution to acknowledge what science has long recognized."

Today, in discussing the legal efforts that Liberty Counsel is undertaking on behalf of this effort, Matt Barber explained that efforts to pass "personhood" amendments is just like effort to end slavery because "this merely does what we did in freeing the slaves; this frees these little people from the overhanging threat of abortion homicide": 

Rep. Gohmert Says America is Worse off Now than During Slavery

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) joined the fervently anti-gay, anti-Latino pastor Rick Scarborough of Vision America for his “40 Days to Save America” conference call today, and delivered a somber message to participants about how America is on the verge of collapse if their prayer efforts to shift the election don’t work. “The truth is if you look at great nations, great civilizations, great powers throughout recorded history, when they’ve passed some of the milestones we have as a nation, that was the sign that they were toward the end of their existence,” Gohmert said. He stated that “the only reason I continue to run for Congress is because I still have hope" as he urged Americans to “follow the rule book as to what blesses a nation” and join Scarborough’s prayer initiative.

The congressman argued that our Founders “followed biblical teachings” and therefore gave us “more liberties, more individual freedoms and values, ease of living, quality and standard of living than even more than Solomon’s Israel.” Gohmert went on to claim that the U.S. is in a state of such spiritual disrepair that the country is even worse off than during slavery, arguing that while “Andrew Jackson’s time was not a great time, at different times slavery was a blot on our existence,” America has “never as an entire nation overall been so far away from God’s teaching and so openly rebelling, even from the top, against God’s teaching in the Bible.”

There is so much that is so critical to whether or not this country continues, the greatest gift of a country to any people in history: more liberties, more individual freedoms and values, ease of living, quality and standard of living than even more than Solomon’s Israel. No explanation as to why we’ve been so blessed other than the people who went before us were blessed, they followed God’s rule book, in our founding they followed biblical teachings. We strayed away at different times, Andrew Jackson’s time was not a great time, at different times slavery was a blot on our existence, but the trouble is we have never as an entire nation overall been so far away from God’s teaching and so openly rebelling, even from the top, against God’s teachings in the Bible.

CWA Tries to Win Over Women By Claiming Romney Can’t Overturn Roe v. Wade

Concerned Women for America is trying out a novel strategy in its fight to draw women to support Mitt Romney this November: denying that the next president can do anything to eliminate abortion rights. In a new TV ad, CWA counters a MoveOn.org ad featuring female celebrities talking about the issue of reproductive rights in the presidential election. In the CWA ad, women derisively call the MoveOn.org supporters “Hollywood women” and mock the contention that a President Mitt Romney would “overturn Roe v. Wade.”

“Have they ever heard of the separation of powers?” asks one Concerned Woman.


Maybe it’s CWA that needs the civics lesson. Mitt Romney has repeatedly stated that he would choose Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade. It even says so on his website. With as many as three Justices possibly retiring in the next four years, Romney might very well have the opportunity to shape a court that would take away the right to choose.

Which, of course, is what CWA has been working toward since its founding. A petition on CWA’s website calls for signers to support “any and all legislative efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade” and “support pro-life nominees to the courts.” A pamphlet the group distributed shortly before President Obama's inauguration said anti-choice advocates should work to "pass limits on abortion and appoint judges who will overturn Roe." And here’s the CWA’s blog discussing an Alabama Supreme Court ruling in February that challenged Roe.

This ruling has major implications for the pro-life movement. First, it clearly mirrors the growing sentiments of a majority of Americans who are pro-life, especially our younger generation. Second, Alabama has set a clear precedent that more states are expected to emulate. Finally, as state laws continue to represent Americans’ growing pro-life attitude, the U.S. Supreme Court will be called upon to reconsider and, ultimately, repeal Roe.

Unveiling the deception of Roe shouldn’t be a difficult task. Mario Diaz, Esq., Legal Counsel for Concerned Women for America, explains, “Legally speaking, Roe v. Wade is simply indefensible. It rests on the false premise that the ‘fetus’ is not a ‘person’ because the Justices say so. The scientific bases for that claim simply were not there in 1973, and they are not there now. In fact, JusticeBlackmun acknowledged that ‘[i]f this suggestion of personhood is established, [Roe's] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [Fourteenth] Amendment.’ Advances in science have been proving just that: we are dealing with a baby, not a blob of tissue as some conveniently tried to tell us. This decision by the Alabama Supreme Court is another indication that Roe‘s house of cards is slowly tumbling down.”

Pro-life conservatives can only hope that the Supreme Court revisits the abortion question sooner rather than later. With a few more decisions like the one in Alabama, we may just hold the legal trump card when that time comes.

Romney himself as also tried this tactic, claiming that there is nothing he would do to restrict abortion rights. A New York Times editorial this morning sets that notion straight.

 

Conspiracy Theorist Ed Klein: Obama is an 'Imperial President' who is Controlled by Feminists

Discredited right-wing author and conspiracy theorist Ed Klein was featured on Eagle Forum Live with Phyllis Schlafly, where he discussed his erroneous book The Amateur and deplored Obama’s character and presidency. Klein has previously promoted claims that Obama is Muslim, and has contended that Bill Clinton raped his wife Hillary in his highly contested book, The Truth about Hillary. The Amateur alleges that Obama is ill-suited for the presidency, charging that his temperament and lack of experience make him unqualified to fulfill a role in governance. The book reflects long-standing conservative allegations against Obama, painting a portrait of the president as a Muslim, a closeted socialist and an inept, ungrateful leader.

According to those Klein interviewed, the book contains scenes that did not occur or were immensely misconstrued. Media Matters reports that The Amateur is filled with “lazy research, bad writing, bizarre generalizations…and gossip forwarded by anonymous sources.” But conservatives like Dick Cheney and Schlafly continue to praise Klein as a truth-teller who is unearthing Obama’s true incompetency.

In his interview with Schafly — who believes that “feminists completely control the Obama administration” — Klein assailed Obama’s relationship with feminists and disclosed that Michelle Obama is a domineering wife and the true power holder in the White House, calling Obama “a hen-pecked guy.”

Schafly: You can see he is kind of already in hoc to the feminists.

Klein: Very much so, in hoc to—he married a big, big feminist. Michelle Obama is really the person who wears the pants in the family, and Barack Obama admits to that. He says when they have a difference of opinion he says “Yes Ma’am!” to his wife. He’s a bit of a, you know, a hen-pecked guy, let’s face it. And Michelle is very strong-willed, and Barack I think, surrounds himself with feminists, and people who espouse that, what I would call, extreme feminism, including and up to abortion on demand, paid for by the government, up to and including the ninth month of pregnancy.

Klein also did not fail to insinuate Obama’s supposed connection with Islam, citing birther Jerome Corsi as a valid source and floated his new “Muslim ring” conspiracy.

Caller: I was wondering about the ring that Obama wore in college, you know the Islamic and Arabic one about there’s only one God but Allah and he’s the only prophet, Mohammed’s the only prophet. Do you know anything about that?

Klein: Well, if you’re asking me that question…I can only tell you that I spoke to Jerome Corsi, who has been the person following this story, breaking this story, and exposing this story. And Jerry Corsi tells me that, he’s been, as you said, wearing this ring since college, and that it does have this Islamic inscription on it. I have not seen the ring, I can’t comment on it.

Schafly and Klein contended that Obama is waging a war on capitalism, alleging that it is Obama’s plan to increase dependence on the government and suppress free market capitalism. Klein warned of Obama’s executive orders, cautioning that if Obama is re-elected, he will have achieved a “Roman Imperial presidency.”

Schlafly: There are people who think he’s following the Frances Fox Piven strategy of breaking the capitalist system by simply loading so many people on welfare and on dependency on government.

Klein: It’s very strange, Phyllis, this debate on whether he’s a socialist or not a socialist, I don’t think, quite frankly, that’s an important debate, what is important is what he’s actually doing. And I think what you’ve just described is what he’s doing—making this country more and more dependent on a central government that is taking over the role of deciding who are the winners and who are the losers…who to back, who do give money to…it is the opposite of what this country is founded on which is free market capitalism.

Schafly: Well, that’s why I called my book No Higher Power, and it applies to a lot of these things…he just thinks the federal government is the last word, and it’s even higher than your conscience, it’s higher than your religious liberty, it’s higher than his issuing executive orders that are a violation of congressional laws, and etc.

Klein: And I think that if he is re-elected, I think that’s going to continue unabated for the next four years. And that could turn this country permanently into something different than what it was before. These executive orders, in violation of congressional laws that you just pointed out, that’s a very dangerous constitutional matter. And I can see this happening more and more if this man is re-elected, kind of a Roman Imperial presidency.

Dinesh D'Souza in Hot Water with Religious Right over Sex Scandal

Sarah Posner brings to us an emerging controversy surrounding Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative pseudo-intellectual who has been on the Religious Right media circuit pushing his anti-Obama “documentary,” as he is apparently seeing another woman who is not his wife. The evangelical WORLD Magazine reports that D’Souza has been introducing his fellow right-wing activists “a young woman, Denise Odie Joseph II” as his fiancée, even sharing a room with her, while at a conference with Alex McFarland, who interviewed D’Souza when he guest hosted The Janet Mefferd Show. He told WORLD editor Warren Cole Smith that he had filed for divorce from his wife, Dixie, but according to court records he only filed the day Smith spoke to him and “under California law, that starts the clock on a six-month waiting period for divorce.”

D’Souza styles himself as a fierce defender of marriage against gays and lesbians and it appears that Odie Joseph II, seen here with D’Souza’s new book, also has strong views on marriage, cohabitation and divorce. In a post on a conservative blog, she rails against feminists and “RINO men” for ruining marriage and traditional morality. “Feminists/liberals who intended to destroy and transform that sacred cornerstone of American society—the traditional family” she explains, adding that today’s state of the family proves that “the 19th Amendment was never the best idea ever.” She blames feminist academics for increases in adultery, failed marriages and cohabitation, and even goes on to say that America’s children “are going the way of black ghetto society” thanks to feminists and Ke$ha.

RINO Republicans are analogous to fathers who proudly proclaim their conservativeness at dinner parties or perhaps during early afternoon phone calls to El Rusbo’s show, but let their “independently-minded” wives (translation–women who get their marching orders from St. Oprah or more recently, The View ) pump their teenagers full of birth control and encourage their daughters to live the lives for which their bra-burning foremothers fought so valiantly. Indeed, this particular post was inspired by one such RINO Dad I know exceedingly well, at exactly one such dinner party, several years ago. RINO Dads are those guys who will sheepishly to proudly, fill out Republican ballots on Election Day while their wives openly mark their support for things like, “freedom of choice” and “freedom from poverty.” What most people don’t realize, and indeed what I didn’t realize until I blocked out the “madding crowd[ii],” is that these women and their RINO men are like a vast national living history museum, pictographically illustrating exactly why the 19th Amendment was never the best idea ever and in fact, more closely resembles the greatest show on Earth. Think Ringling Bros[iii]. If these modern families keep at it, museums telling the hieroglyphical tales of our civilization might be all that is left of us.



In the 1960s and 1970s, feminists and liberals of other stripes started pointing out the hypocrisies of what they termed “patriarchy.” Time and again, they urged us to recognize human’s natural “animal instincts” in relation to traditional morality and therefore, to reject traditional institutions such as marriage as outdated because now these intellectual elites had things like biology and sociology, things like women’s studies, gender studies, and critical race theory, to back them up. They pointed to infidelity or infamous sexual desire surveys (conducted by homosexuals)[vi] among traditionally married couples to “prove” their theses. Limb by limb, they tore the traditional family to shreds until they reduced us to the shining bastion of zoological (but even animals aren’t this bad and do not depend on the state to care for them)cesspool equality that we have now in every American ghetto and which is seeping out into the middle and upper classes in less animated ways. These people, like their European counterparts, are the ones who will go extinct. For instance, we have raised an entire generation of boys who, permanently scarred by their parents’ divorces(perhaps over issues such as infidelity) cannot emotionally connect or commit to any one woman in any meaningful way and so we also have an entire generation of girls for whom that coveted diamond solitaire comes later and later in life, with more and more contractual caveats (prenups). Somehow, when it happens after 5 years of living together, after 1 year of non-exclusive dating followed by another 3 years of recurring breakups over the male’s unwillingness to “commit,” getting that ring for which you girls will surely be paying your hard-earned half, doesn’t feel quite like the fairytale it used to.



Since I do not trust the U.S. Census Bureau to report accurate or clear statistics[ix] (See US Census Bureau Admits ‘It Artificially Inflated the Number of Same Sex Couples’ link below)I will not try to provide any statistics on the number of single-mom or grandparent households in the U.S. today, or their relative poverty (both cultural and financial). However, it is fair to say that the numbers reflect an unquestionable victory for the feminists/liberals who intended to destroy and transform that sacred cornerstone of American society—the traditional family.



If they took a moment to actually listen to the music their children listened to, or a moment to look at the way their children dress, they would realize that they are going the way of black ghetto society. They would realize that by failing to do the job their foremothers cherished, their wives, who don’t even know enough to scoff at Madeline Dahlgren and who should be the proud, moral guardians of their homes, are leading their RINO (and real Republican civilization) to their inevitable demises. Non-black youth today speaks the language of bitches and hoes as well as black youth and non-black youth males expect the same level of promiscuity from their female peers. For example, Ke$ha (apparently the traditional alphabet has gone the way of cursive, who needs it anyway? Just another archaic trapping of grace and beauty…useless) is a young, white female who reportedly wakes up in the morning feeling like the black rap hero, P Diddy. She has enjoyed a string of top ten hits which, if you live in America, you would have definitely heard, even if you had no intention of doing so. Her breakthrough video, “Tik Tok[i]” (which incidentally utilizes about as many syllables as an ADHD-ridden culture can handle) features her waking up in her parent’s bathtub, filthy, fully-dressed, and hung-over after a long night of partying. Without bothering to attend to hygiene (granola-brand feminists should love this), Ke$ha, who trendily refers to the police as “po po” and who is apparently still young enough to be living with her parents, drunkenly stumbles downstairs to her well-dressed, clean-cut, conservative-looking nuclear family, sneers at them in all her godforsaken glory, and walks out slamming the door on her way to play with innocent looking (until the day they meet Ke$ha) elementary school-aged children on the block.

People For the American Way Expands Latino Vote Campaign, Launches New TV Ad in Four Swing States

Washington, DC -- People For the American Way expanded its campaign targeting Latino voters this week, adding outreach in Nevada and North Carolina and launching the second in a series of Spanish-language television ads exposing Mitt Romney's dangerous agenda for Latinos. The ad, running in key markets in Nevada, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin, features interviews with real voters reacting to Romney's promise to veto the DREAM Act if it were to be passed by Congress. The two TV ads, along with radio and direct mail outreach are part of a $1.2 million and growing campaign in key swing states.
 
The new ad, "Dream Act," can be viewed here.
 
"Mitt Romney has been very clear about his extreme anti-Latino agenda," said Michael Keegan, president of People For the American Way. "He slammed Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. He touted the endorsement of Kris Kobach, the architect of disastrous, draconian anti-immigrant measures in Arizona and Alabama. He vowed to make life so difficult for undocumented immigrants that they would be forced to 'self-deport.' He even rejected the DREAM Act, which after being partially implemented by President Obama's executive order, is helping thousands of loyal, hard-working young Americans give back to the country they call home."
 
"Romney plans to heap further tax cuts on the wealthiest at the expense of programs that benefit working people,"continued Keegan. "Americans should have a shot at the American dream. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan want to slam the door on all but the already privileged few."

Land: Fighting Abortion & Gay Marriage is Like MLK Fighting for Racial Justice

Recently, Christian television host John Ankerberg sat down with Janet Parshall, Frank Wright, and Richard Land to "examine the moral issues surrounding the upcoming election," during which Wright, President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Religious Broadcasters, warned that the choice of the next president would determine whether the Bible can be freely preached in America because "there is legislation pending on Capitol Hill today, even as we sit here in your studio, that could so constrain your free speech rights and the rights ultimately of all Americans that the Bible will be something that is referred to only in part because there will be parts of it that are untouchable" out of fear of government persecution: 

Land then asserted that Christians would continue to be involved in politics so long as abortion remained legal and efforts to expand marriage equality existed, saying that criticizing the Religious Right for fighting this issues is "like attacking Dr. [Martin Luther] King for making a priority out of racial reconciliation and racial justice":

Harvey: Halloween's 'Demonic' Underpinnings Explain Why it's a 'Huge Celebration in the LGBT World'

Mission America’s Linda Harvey is warning listeners against participating in Halloween festivities, and naturally uses Halloween to criticize the LGBT community. She explains that Halloween’s purportedly Satanic origins explain why it is a “huge celebration in the LGBT world, especially for the gender-confused folks.” Harvey explains that Halloween is an “extremely useful tool” for “Satan and his minions,” and its popularity is a sign of “spiritual deception on a grand scale.” She said that participating in Halloween festivities is “enter[ing] Satan’s territory” and “real contact with real demons is quite possible.” Last year, Harvey said celebrating Halloween represents unfaithfulness to Jesus.

Christians don’t need to cower in fear of the demonic realm and all its mischief, nor be overly pre-occupied, but neither are we to mock and scoff and cavalierly enter Satan’s territory dismissing the danger. We are especially not to enable our children to do so. Another reason for skipping Halloween is its growing influence. It’s now the second most popular American celebration right behind Christmas, what’s driving its magnetism? Spiritual deception on a grand scale may be at work and such trends call for heightened Christian discernment. We all can see it’s a huge celebration in the LGBT world, especially for the gender-confused folks. This illustrates some of the problem. The core of Halloween is glittering artificiality, you can pretend to be someone you aren’t’ for a night, you can flirt with danger, you can divine a different destiny, but it is all void of the presence of or will of God. It’s a seduction that says, ‘don’t be afraid, do whatever you want, there’s nothing to fear,’ it’s one of Satan’s oldest tricks.

Costume parties are fun but these costumes may even disguise our very souls. Most Christians with a sincere faith acknowledge that there is a demonic realm and that Satan and his minions are at work in the world to deceive humans, so why wouldn’t Halloween provide an extremely useful too. Mixed in with the fun and games are frightening and disturbing experiences that may leave some children with nightmares. Then there is the flirtation with occult practices that are forbidden in Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and elsewhere, Christians aren’t supposed to be consulting fortune tellers, Ouija boards or palm readers about our future but all are frequently a part of Halloween festivities. ‘But it’s just for fun,’ parents will say, ‘God understands my children are not serious.’ Really? Do your kids know how risky these practices are and that real contact with real demons is quite possible. Satan doesn’t care about our intentions; he will take any willing participant.

Camenker: Gay Rights will 'Fall' like Nazism, Slavery and Segregation

Brian Camenker of MassResistance spoke to Sandy Rios of the American Family Association yesterday to promote his anti-gay group’s “What same-sex ‘marriage’ has done to Massachusetts” booklet. Rios insisted that marriage equality advocates have “had to do tricks, they’ve had to threaten, they’ve had to cajole” in order to legalize same-sex marriage, and Camenker said that “the whole gay marriage thing and the whole homosexual issue is artificially held up through threats and propaganda.” In fact, Camenker said that the gay rights movement will inevitably “fall” like a “house of cards” just like Nazism, slavery, segregation and Communism.

Rios: This is an area on which really still most people in Western civilization when asked do not embrace homosexual marriage. State after state has rejected it, and even in liberal New York and even in liberal California they’ve had to force it through in other ways, they’ve had to do tricks, they’ve had to threaten, they’ve had to cajole, it’s just an amazing thing. Brian I don’t know if it was you who wrote this, maybe it’s you who wrote this, that this whole wave of homosexual rights in every way—whether its marriage or workplace or whatever—you feel I believe you wrote that this is a phase, this is not something that is here to stay, this is like a fad, like a moment in history that cannot last. Are you the one that wrote that?

Camenker: I’ve written that a few times, yes, and I believe it very, very strongly. There have been times in our history when very strange things have happened and then disappeared and people thought that it would never happen. We think of the rise of Nazism in Germany and Europe, people thought that would never disappear and never change; people thought slavery would never change; I lived in the South as a young guy and nobody thought that segregation would ever end; we all remember that nobody thought that the Soviet Union and all of that would ever fall. I believe that the whole gay marriage thing and the whole homosexual issue is artificially held up through threats and propaganda and everything else. As soon as that doesn’t continue the whole things is a house of cards and will fall. People do not naturally support this. Everybody is looking with doom and gloom and everything but I believe that it is all going to fall at a certain point.

Beck Tells Tea Party Activists They're Being Attacked, Just Like Washington, Lincoln, & Reagan

Over the weekend, Glenn Beck traveled to Arizona where he delivered a "spoken word speech while accompanied" by music to Tea Party activists attending a FreedomWorks "FreePAC" event.  For an hour, Beck lamented the loss of America's greatness while beseeching the audience to rise up and save this nation, but warning them that by doing so, they would be making themselves unpopular to the media and the elites who would ridicule and marginalize them, just as they have always done in the past: “They did it to Abraham [in the Bible]. They did it to Washington. They did to Lincoln. They did it to Reagan. They’re doing it to you”:

Bryan Fischer on CNN Likens Anti-Bullying Program to Poisoned Halloween Candy, Defends Gay-Nazi Claims

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer appeared on CNN today and told host Carol Costello that the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Mix It Up at Lunch Day” program, which the AFA is protesting, is “toxic” to the “moral health” of students, much like “poisoned Halloween candy” injected with cyanide.

After Fischer did his normal routine of arguing that Hitler was gay and that the Stormtroopers were largely comprised of gay members while making wild claims about the supposed dangers of homosexuality, Costello abruptly ended the interview, adding, “thanks for sharing your views, I guess.”

PFAW Urges Schools to Stand Up to AFA’s Bullying

Washington, DC – People For the American Way today urged schools to withstand pressure from the anti-gay American Family Association to drop out of an anti-bullying day organized by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The AFA has been pressuring schools to drop out of the October 30 Mix It Up Day, in which children will be encouraged to sit with someone they don’t normally talk to at lunch, according to the New York Times. The AFA, which regularly pushes harmful anti-gay myths, claims that the anti-bullying day is meant to “promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools.”

“The American Family Association makes life harder for LGBT young people by pushing harmful myths and extreme anti-gay rhetoric,” said Michael Keegan, president of People For the American Way. “Now, they’re stepping in to stop a program meant to combat bullying –including the bullying of LGBT and LGBT-perceived kids – in schools. Whatever our disagreements, we should at least be able to agree that encouraging kids to put aside prejudices and talk to each other is a good thing. That the AFA is now attacking a simple anti-bullying program because of fear of ‘homosexual indoctrination’ shows just how blinding their rage against gays and lesbians has become.”

“The American Family Association is an extreme anti-gay group, and should be treated as such by the schools that it is attempting to pressure,” added Keegan.

Randall Terry Unveils Racist Ad Attacking Obama and Samuel L. Jackson

Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry did his best impersonation of a stereotypical black man while reading his poem, “New Uncle Tom,” which attacked Samuel L. Jackson over his appearance in a pro-Obama web ad for the Jewish Council for Education and Research. Channeling “Sir Reginald Bling,” Terry knocked “my man Samuel L. Jackson” for working as an “angry black political agitator” in a poem with “lines [that] come straight from many of Mr. Jackson's films.” “When there’s too many black kids running around, who do you call to clean up your town, when you absolutely got to kill every baby in the womb, accept no substitute--Planned Parenthood is the tomb,” Terry/Bling said, “When it’s time for the work of the Ku Klux Klan, Samuel L. Jackson is the man.”

Terry is running as an independent for President in three states and for US Congress in Florida so he and his acolytes can run graphic ads opposing abortion rights. He also made a TV ad accusing Jackson of “carrying water for racists” and to “wake up and smell the burning crosses.” As we reported earlier, Terry plans to run the ad “on nearly 130 stations in over 30 markets.”

This isn’t the first time Terry posed as Sir Reginald Bling, either:

Fischer: 'Political Leadership Ought to be Reserved for the Hands of Males'

During the Republican primary, Bryan Fischer made a bit of news when he suggested that women should not be serving in positions of authority within the church or society at large, saying that God would only allow a woman (in this case, Rep. Michele Bachmann) to lead the nation in a desperate situation.

Fischer returned to the discussion of the proper role of women in society on his radio program today where he made it quite clear that he believes that "biblical lines of authority" ought to be enforced at home, in the church, and in society and that anybody who has a problem with that can take it up with Jesus. 

Fischer went on to reiterate that "masculine leadership in society over the nation" is "God's basic plan for today" and "political leadership ought to be ... reserved for the hands of males" and the fact that he is probably going to be attacked for saying so is just evidence that we can't have a reasonable discussion about this issue:

Saleem Warns of Islamic 'Shadow Government' Controlling America through Obama's Babysitter

During a speech at Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Ministry, phony ex-terrorist and Values Voter Summit headliner Kamal Saleem said that the Obama administration has established a stealth Islamic “shadow government” to control the United States. Saleem repeated many of usual claims in his address, including his belief that Hillary Clinton is planning to shut down churches and that even U.S. military leaders are working on the behalf of radical Islamists, but now he contends that “Islam is creeping into our government and a shadow government has been established by our current government and now they are a leader within.”

Saleem alleged that Obama’s top speech writer and Sasha and Malia's babysitter are both Islamic fundamentalists that are wielding secret power. “The right-hand of our President today, his name is Hasan Rashad, and he is sworn to destroy the United States of America,” Saleem said (possibly referring to OIC representative Rashad Hussain), “our President’s babysitter wears abaya and keffiyeh just like those ninjas, you don’t see her face everything is covered, that’s the babysitter of his children.”

“America, wake up and smell the hummus,” Saleem warned. He then falsely asserted that the Democratic National Convention invited “20,000 Muslims” and said the convention was filled with “socialism, Islamism, communism, fascism, homosexuality and lesbianism, and Code Pink, which is abortionists and what so have you, and now we kick God out of our nation.”

Watch:

He also described to listeners his prophesy where two eagles were screaming at each other, which he said it means that: “the Lord said America is in trouble and the Church has cried, and I’ve heard their cry and tell them, help is on the way.” But God also told him “9/11 was a disgrace to me, after I saved the nation they turned their back on me and went back to their vomit,” and it is now up to Saleem to spread this message to America.

Perkins: 'We Don't Want to Encourage Folks Who are Going to be Voting the Wrong Way'

Last week, Brian noted that FRC president Tony Perkins and vice presidents Jerry Boykin and Kenyn Cureton were all heading to Catalina Foothills Church in Tucson, Arizona for a "Recapturing America" conference where they would join up with a pastor who had been called on members of the church to “actively pray and work for the defeat of Barack Obama” in the upcoming election as he is an “enemy” of Christianity and religious freedom.

The event was held this weekend and after delivering his remarks, Perkins took some questions from the audience including from a mother who wanted his advice on how her children away at college could get their friends and roommates motivated to vote.  Perkins responded by joking that the first thing they should find out is which way their friends intend to vote because "I want people to vote, but only if they're voting the right way."

But it seems that Perkins was actually entirely serious, as he followed that up by declaring that "in all seriousness, find out which way they're going; we don't want to encourage folks who are going to be voting the wrong way": 

LaBarbera: ‘Dictator Obama’ Championing ‘Gay Affirmative Action’

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality on Friday spoke to Religious Right talk show host Janet Mefferd, who insisted that the Obama administration wants to “give preference to somebody who is a homosexual to be a security guard” to guard embassies in countries like Libya. However, the job posting in question “does not list same-sex domestic partners of government employees as a prerequisite,” as Media Matters had already noted, but lists same-sex partners under their “Eligible Family Member” guidelines, which includes spouses, children and siblings. “It’s beyond dumb, I didn’t know that when Barack Obama was campaigning in 2008 that he was going to give us gay affirmative action,” LaBarbera said, “hey who is in favor of affirmative action based on aberrant, deviant sexual conduct.”

“We’ve seen this all over the world, the Obama administration is now promoting homosexuality as a ‘human right’ and they are in your face, going in Muslim countries and heavily Christian countries promoting homosexuality in their embassies, this is an incredible, revolutionary development,” he said.

“I don’t know those gay security guards, that’s who I want to defend me,” LaBarbera said. He went on to refer to the President as “Dictator Obama,” asserting that the job posting violates DOMA.

Mefferd: One of the things we’ve learned now is in the months leading up to the 9/11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi, the US embassy in Libya was seeking to hire two body guards with limited English language skills, we know this for about $13,000 a year, and in these job descriptions that the US embassy in Libya posted online they explicitly stated that they would give preference to filling these positions with qualified US citizens who were family members of US government employees and this included those with same-sex domestic partners. Now I’m thinking to myself, how does this jive with Libya? Don’t you think that’s a dumb idea, am I missing something here?

LaBarbera: It’s beyond dumb. I didn’t know that when Barack Obama was campaigning in 2008 that he was going to give us gay affirmative action, don’t you think that would have been an interesting point? Hey, who is in favor of affirmative action based on aberrant, deviant sexual conduct? See that’s an interesting concept but if you’re going to do it let’s do it in a Muslim country where homosexuals can actually be killed for practicing homosexuality and we’ve seen this all over the world. The Obama administration is now promoting homosexuality as a ‘human right’ and they are in your face, going in Muslim countries and heavily Christian countries promoting homosexuality in their embassies, this is an incredible, revolutionary development and it’s hardly even been a campaign issue.

Mefferd: And the silly part about it is why would you give preference to somebody who is a homosexual to be a security guard, what is the connection there?

LaBarbera: I don’t know. Those gay security guards, that’s who I want to defend me. But also what about DOMA? This is a violation of course of the spirit if not the law of the Defense of Marriage Act which is supposed to give preference to normal, male-female married spouses in our US government and Obama just said, ‘hey, we’re not going to follow that anymore,’ and just decided to make a new law.

Mefferd: Right, because he has been denigrating DOMA for a long, long time and has not defended it in court even though he is required to as the President of the United States to uphold federal law, he’s just not doing it and nobody is holding his feet to a fire on that. Does that drive you as crazy as it drives me that he just gets away with it?

LaBarbera: Yeah, you know Dictator Obama, hey, write a new law, we’re not going to enforce that law.

LaBarbera also lauded the American Family Association’s campaign to pull students from schools that participate in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Mix It Up at Lunch Day,” where students are encouraged to sit with their peers whom they don’t normally talk to or associate with. While he couldn’t find an example of how “Mix It Up at Lunch Day” promotes the “gay agenda,” he said the event should be opposed simply because it connects schools to the “anti-Christian” and “evil” SPLC.

What this event is, this seemingly innocuous event, of getting kids to sit next to somebody else during the lunch hour, but what this really is is luring the schools in, getting them hooked on the SPLC and later on they find out that the SPLC promotes homosexuality in the name of tolerance. This is one of their more innocuous activities but if you are allowing the SPLC in as an institution then you are saying essentially you agree with the SPLC’s concept of tolerance, which these days is a radically pro-homosexual agenda.



Their purpose is to get us out of media, to delegitimize us, to make it ‘oh why did you call that hate group, hey you don’t call the KKK every time you do a story on black people,’ which is the way they think. It’s evil, it’s really insulting to Christians, especially to African American Christians the idea that the opposition to homosexuality is analogous to being like a racist, that is an anti-Christian thought process that the SPLC is going through.

Klayman: Obama is a ‘Ruthless Bolshevik Thug’ and ‘Muslim in Chief’

Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman, who is facing a bit of legal trouble, is slamming Paul Ryan in his latest column for not getting tough on Vice President Biden during their first and only debate. Indeed, Klayman explained how he “would have handled the sleazy, Democrat vice-presidential buffoon named Joe Biden,” starting by refusing to refer to Obama or Biden as President and Vice President, respectively. He warned that the “Muslim in chief” is leading “the most evil and destructive administration in the history of the republic.” Obama and Biden, Klayman warns, are “ruthless Bolshevik thugs” with a “ruthless socialist and ultra-leftist philosophy” that intend to “retain control of our so-called government – to dominate our lives, remove our freedoms and redistribute wealth to them and their friends, communist style.”

Let me tell you how I would have handled the sleazy, Democrat vice-presidential buffoon named Joe Biden.

First, when Biden persisted at making childish gestures, rolling his eyes, snickering and grinning like a Cheshire cat each time Ryan spoke, I would have turned to the vice president and said simply, “Mr. Biden (I would never dignify Biden by calling him Mr. Vice President, as Ryan did frequently), why are you smiling and laughing when so many good and honest Americans are suffering and can’t afford to send their kids to college, eat decent food or even buy gasoline? Do you think this is funny?”

Second, as the debate wore on and Biden continued his antics, I would have added, “Mr. Biden, I know you and Mr. Obama (I would never call him the president, either), want young people to vote for you, but five year olds, whom you seem to be targeting with your immature behavior tonight, are not able to vote.”



But while Ryan could have “KO’d” Biden and Obama by pushing back, Ryan did not do himself any favors with a lot of what he did say. His statements effectively endorsing the Obama administration’s proven worthless sanctions as the primary means to stop Iran from building nuclear weapons, his endorsement of Obama’s policies regarding Afghanistan and Iraq, and a host of other gratuitous bows to the “Muslim in chief,” were simply unbelievable for someone who wants his party to ascend to the presidency and vice presidency. As a trial lawyer and, for a brief period in 2004, a politician running for a U.S. Senate seat in Florida, I can tell you, from 35 years of experience, that it is unwise and even stupid to concede anything to an opponent. Ryan’s unnecessary bows to Heckel and Jeckel were unnecessary, and they made him (and his boss, Romney) look less than serious about defeating the most evil and destructive administration in the history of the republic on Nov. 6.

Winning the White House takes a “killer instinct,” particularly given Obama’s and Biden’s ruthless socialist and ultra-leftist philosophy – first perfected by the Bolsheviks at Red Square – that the ends justify the means. Even with the electoral map looking somewhat better for Romney and Ryan after Obama’s collapse in the first presidential debate, Obama and his partner in crime, Biden, are only down but hardly out. Like the ruthless Bolshevik thugs they are, expect some major gambits and outrageous acts in the days ahead to destroy Romney and Ryan so they and their leftist minions can retain control of our so-called government – to dominate our lives, remove our freedoms and redistribute wealth to them and their friends, communist style.
