Mike Huckabee: Planned Parenthood Are Murderers Too!

In his condemnation of the shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Spring, Mike Huckabee suggested that while the attacker was wrong for killing people, Planned Parenthood does the same thing:

Mike Huckabee condemned the attack as a "despicable act of murder" and said "what he did is domestic terrorism," but then equated the killings to the abortions Planned Parenthood provides.

"There's no excuse for killing other people, whether it's happening inside the Planned Parent headquarters, inside their clinics, where many millions of babies die, or whether it's people attacking Planned Parenthood," Huckabee said on CNN's "State of the Union."

Huckabee’s comments reflects the mood of several anti-choice groups that have used the shooting, which left three people dead, as a way to attack Planned Parenthood and demand that the media cover “pro-abortion violence.”

The Republican presidential candidate has previously likened Planned Parenthood to ISIS terrorists and suggested that the creators of the hoax videos targeting Planned Parenthood should receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, all the while pledging to ban abortion through an executive decree that will effectively treat abortion as the legal equivalent of murder.

He once hailed a group that claims Planned Parenthood is waging genocide against black people and said in a speech following a visit to a concentration camp that legal abortion in America is no different than the Holocaust orchestrated by Nazi Germany, if not worse.

Donald Trump Claims 'Thousands And Thousands' Of Muslim-Americans Celebrated 9/11, Finds Only Two

Donald Trump has not backed down from his roundly discredited claim that “thousands and thousands” of Muslim-Americans in Jersey City celebrated the September 11 attacks as the Twin Towers fell, with his campaign manager even arguing that the media is deliberately suppressing footage of the nonexistent celebrations.

“Mr. Trump has provided them local media outlets that have covered this coverage that they don’t want to go and talk about,” campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said. “He’s provided many opportunities for them to go and see it but they have their own agenda, the media has their own agenda.”

Today, Trump posted on his Facebook page a video titled, “American Muslims celebrating 9/11.”

The footage begins with a statement from a now defunct website whose leaders have been convicted of making violent threats celebrating Nidal Hasan, who murdered thirteen people at Fort Hood, and then features a CNN segment about two converts to Islam, one of whom was a founder of the website and has since denounced terrorists attacks, who declared their support for Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

So, Trump claims he saw “thousands and thousands” cheering 9/11 on TV and even his own campaign can identify only two.


We better be vigilant, careful, and strong.

Dobson: 'We Lost The Entire Culture War' With SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision

Last week, James Dobson appeared on televangelist Andrew Wommack "The Gospel Truth" television program, where he declared that the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision was proof that "we lost the entire culture war."

Dobson had "a black cloud" over him in the days following the decision, he recounted, as he came to realize that the decision was not simply about the issue of gay marriage but was rather about "the entire culture war."

"It's about control of the public schools and it's what happens in universities," he said. "It's about the economy and it's about business and it's about the military and it's about medicine. It's about everything. We lost the entire culture war with that one decision."

Diana West Praises Donald Trump For Exposing 'The Population Replacement Of The West'

In an interview with the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney last week, conservative author Diana West lamented that the “messianic cult of multiculturalism” is giving cover to “the population replacement of the West by the rest of the world” in the form of immigration, praising Donald Trump for bringing “this issue into political forums that it never, ever entered before.”

Claiming that multiculturalism allowed Europeans to ignore “the obvious signs that we were about to enter this violent stage of jihad,” West said that the U.S. is on a similar precipice thanks to immigration from Latin America.

“What’s happening in Europe is happening here, we have a similar immigration phenomenon coming up from Latin America, primarily, and … many others from across the world coming across our borderless southern flank,” she said. “But this is the same thing we’re seeing with the immigration coming into Europe. This is the destruction of the West, this is the population replacement of the West by the rest of the world, by what we call the Third World, by the Middle East, by Islam, by Africa, by South America, this is all happening and it needs to be understood in a totality.”

“And, yes, I would hope there is a concerted effort to push back,” she added, “and this is where we see the phenomenon of Donald Trump having brought this issue into political forums that it never, ever entered before, so for that we can be thankful and build.”


Theodore Shoebat: Gay Priests Should Be Put To Death

Conflating homosexuality with pedophilia, extremist anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat responded to reports that several Catholic priests in Minnesota were accused of sexually abusing children over many decades by calling for gay priests to be handed over to the authorities and put to death..

Gay church leaders are "suicide bombers," Shoebat declared in a video posted last week as he asserted that gay people are intentionally infiltrating the church for the sole purpose of discrediting and undermining it.

"Once they become a pastor or a priest, they begin their destruction," he said. "And they only do this for one reason, and that is to make the church look bad, to make the church evil ... It's obvious that Satan knows homosexuality is evil and it's also obvious to me that these very sodomites who enter the church, they as well know that homosexuality is evil because they do this so that other people can say, 'See, this is Christianity.'"

"Civilization has no room for homosexuality," Shoebat stated, noting that the Catholic Church once had a policy that gay priests "would be delivered to the secular authorities and put to death" as he lamented that "it's just too damn bad that we don't have these laws being enacted any more."

Ben Carson: 'Both Sides' To Blame For Abortion Rhetoric

Ben Carson pushed back yesterday on claims that anti-abortion rhetoric may have played a role in the shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, insisting in an interview with Martha Raddatz that “there’s a lot of extremism coming from all areas” and divisive rhetoric “comes from both sides.” “There is no saint here in this equation,” he said.

While it is typical for a politician to suggest that “both sides” are to blame for toxic rhetoric and political dysfunction, Carson may want to look back on his own record of statements about Planned Parenthood.

Carson cited a discredited right-wing smear to claim that Planned Parenthood was created “to eliminate black people.”

He also claimed that conservatives need “to help women understand that they are being manipulated” by Planned Parenthood, arguing that the organization must be defunded.

Carson, who once claimed that Obamacare “is slavery in a way,” similarly stated at an anti-chioce fundraiser that abortion providers are no different than slave-owners:

The former neurosurgeon noted that he change his mind about abortion after realizing it was like “slavery.”

“I was thinking about slavery and I was thinking about the abolitionists, and I said, what if the abolitionists had said, ‘I don’t believe in slavery but anybody else can do whatever they want’?” Carson declared. “Where would we be today?”

“Slavery is a moral issue and so is abortion,” he insisted. “It’s a moral issue that we’re dealing with.”

He made the same case in an NBC interview: “During slavery — and I know that's one of those words you're not supposed to say, but I'm saying it — during slavery, a lot of the slave owners thought that they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave, anything that they chose to do. And what if the abolitionists had said: 'You know, I don't believe in slavery. I think it's wrong, but you guys do whatever you want to do'? Where would we be?”

But remember, both sides are extreme!

Colorado Anti-Choice Groups: Why Isn't Media Covering 'Pro-Abortion Violence'?

After an anti-abortion terrorist killed three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs on Friday, reportedly declaring “no more baby parts,” anti-choice groups have been scrambling to condemn the crime and distance themselves from its perpetrator.

But some groups are being slightly less than unequivocal in their denunciation of the murders. In Colorado, which has been the testing ground for the anti-choice movement’s fetal “personhood” strategy, “personhood” groups lashed out at the media for paying too much attention to the murders at the clinic and not to what they see as the greater problems of legal abortion and what one group calls “pro-abortion violence.”

Jennifer Mason of the Colorado-based Personhood USA, which has been working to pass state-level personhood measures, wrote to her group’s supporters on Friday night that while Personhood USA “absolutely opposes all abortion-related violence,” the media is “failing to report that innocent babies are killed in that very building every day”:

Personhood USA absolutely opposes all abortion-related violence, against born and unborn people. That said, the media is failing to report that innocent babies are killed in that very building every day that they are in business. Please join me in praying that the people inside, along with the babies in their mothers' wombs, are released safely.

Meanwhile, the Colorado-based American Right to Life and its affiliate Colorado Right to Life, which dramatically split with the National Right to Life Committee in 2007 because it disagreed with the national group’s incremental anti-choice strategy, complained that the media was not covering the even greater scourge of pro-choice terrorism:

Colorado RTL contrasts the eight people unjustly killed since 1993 by known anti-abortion vigilantes with the eighty women killed by pro-abortion violence for refusing to abort their own children. Those murdered moms are invisible to the media.

When a journalist advocates a "right" to dismember an unborn child (an act that would put an animal rights activist into a rage if done to a preborn cow), that kind of psychological dysfunction helps explain why the pro-killing media ignores those mothers who were brutally killed. And then there are the hundreds of women sexually assaulted by their own abortionists who are also ignored. But who cares: certainly no one in the media. The silence is for the greater good. No?

The group’s assertion that 80 women have been “killed by pro-abortion violence” comes from a list put together by anti-choice activist Mark Crutcher (a driving force behind the Center for Medical Progress’ “baby parts” videos), which lists women who have been killed in domestic violence episodes that included arguments about abortion.

Ted Cruz's 'Transgendered Leftist' Claim About Planned Parenthood Shooter Emerged From Far-Right Web

When asked yesterday about reports that the shooter who killed three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs said “no more baby parts” to law enforcement officers, Ted Cruz said that he read reports that the shooter was actually “a transgendered leftist activist,” while graciously adding that he wouldn’t blame the “rhetoric of the left” for the attack.

Unsurprisingly, according to a campaign spokesman, Cruz found his information about the shooter’s political and gender identity on a right-wing blog.

Far-right outlets such as The Gateway Pundit, Young Conservatives and WorldNetDaily have been implying that what appears to be a typo on the attacker’s voter registration form may mean that he in fact identified as a woman. Cruz’s campaign spokesman cited a blog post on The Right Scoop by a blogger named “soopermexican,” titled “WAS THE COLORADO SHOOTER A TRANSGENDER PERSON?!?!”

American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer also suggested that a webpage typo was proof that “low info media narrative collapses”:

None of these posts, however, suggested that the shooter was a “leftist,” which seems to be a unique Cruz creation. Family members and friends described the shooter as a conservative who abhorred President Obama.

Cruz seems to be doing whatever it takes to make sure people don’t see an attack on Planned Parenthood, one of several attacks that occurred this year, as an attack on Planned Parenthood.

Ted Cruz's War on Christmas: Ugly Sweater Puts Cruz's Political Ambitions at Center

One of the most ridiculous assertions at the heart of the Religious Right’s ludicrous claims that there is a “War on Christmas” in America is the notion that retailers and individuals who say “happy holidays” rather than “Merry Christmas” are insulting Christians and participating in a nefarious plot to, in the words of the American Family Association, “eradicate anything that reminds Americans of Christianity.”

More likely they’re just being respectful of the fact that all their customers or neighbors may not share the AFA’s religious beliefs. But that doesn’t keep Religious Right activists from turning “Merry Christmas” from a friendly greeting into some kind of statement of political defiance. For example, the latest Ted Cruz campaign email comes with the subject line “We Say Merry Christmas” and a p.s.:

Set an example for the "tolerant left," and while wearing your festive Cruz for President gear, or any gear for that matter, make sure to say Merry Christmas every chance you get!

In between, Cruz offers a chance to win the world’s ugliest-ever ugly Christmas sweater featuring his face in a Santa hat floating over the White House and flanked by Tea Party “Don’t Tread on Me" snakes.

Plenty of political content on that sweater, along with secular snowflakes, which are the kinds of things that usually set off the AFA’s alarm bells.  Hey, AFA, doesn’t Cruz belong on your “naughty” list for not keeping Christ in Christmas?


Donald Trump: 'There's Something We Don't Know About' Obama…

We knew Donald Trump was about to go off on one of his trademark rants at a rally in South Carolina last night when he said of Muslims: “I know so many, they’re so great, they’re such good people.”

Much as he tends to compliment immigrants before attacking them as likely rapists and murderers, Trump then said that the government must be concerned about Muslim refugees because “there’s something going on.”

He also said that there is something about President Obama that makes him ignore this supposed threat from Muslims: “We can’t close our eyes. I don’t know what’s wrong with Obama, he wants to close his eyes and pretend it’s not happening. Why is he so emphatic on not solving the problem? There’s something we don’t know about. There’s something we don’t know about.”

He went on to urge attendees to report their neighbors if they’re suspicious of them, adding, “most likely you’ll be wrong and that’s okay.”

The birther presidential candidate previously said that “some people think” Obama wants to bring in Syrian refugees because he has “evil intentions.”
