Right Wing Leftovers - 12/30/13

  • The number of Republicans who believe in evolution has actually gone down since 2009 and is now a minority viewpoint.
  • We can only imagine how Religious Right activists would react if the Obama administration decided to have the government cover the costs of abortion services, but since it is the Israeli government they probably won’t say anything.
  • Liberty University is teaming up with the Trinity Broadcasting Network for a New Year’s Eve party and the re-launch of their “edgy” network, JUCE TV.
  • Robert Knight insists (falsely) that Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s “crime was to coarsely express the normal male preference for female anatomy.”

Jim Garrow Reveals Obama's Secret Plan To Use Aliens And Canadians To Plot Against America

Jim Garrow today appeared on Erik Rush’s radio show to promote the Operation American Spring rally, where he predicted that President Obama will try to distract Americans from his supposed scandals…by claiming that he is now in touch with alien life.

This must be Obama’s Plan B, as Garrow previously claimed that Obama almost launched a devastating nuclear attack on the US with the goal of killing 90% of Americans in order to help George Soros make money.

“What we’re going to see soon is an unveiling of the concept that we have in fact been contacted by and have been in communication with people from other civilizations beyond earth and that will be part of the great deception that is forthcoming soon from Mr. Obama,” Garrow told Rush.

Another guest, Nancy Smith of the Tea Party news show “Politichicks,” said she is not shocked by Obama’s latest scheme: “Personally I’ve already heard some other sources saying the very same thing that you’re saying.”

Garrow added that Obama will claim he is in contact with aliens as part of “the greatest deception that mankind has ever faced” all in order to increase his popularity and help his low poll numbers. But according to Garrow, the man who revealed the details of the plan, which he says was devised in the 1960s, was murdered by Obama in Hong Kong!

Rush, unsurprisingly, seemed to believe all of this.

As for the Americans who rise up against Obama and aren’t deceived by his alien plot, Rush predicted that patriotic civilians and soldiers will fight Obama’s Chinese-United Nations army. Garrow even said that Obama will send in troops from Canada to bring down the insurgency: “Obama can ask [Canadian Prime Minister] Harper to send troops into America to help quell the rioting and vice versa.”

“Now we’re bringing in a new element, a group of people who could be armed and could be in a position to shoot American civilians who have never sworn allegiance to the Constitution,” he said.

Another Far-Right Rally To Overthrow Obama That Will Definitely Work

Conservative activists including Jim Garrow, Erik Rush and Paul Vallely are pushing a rally called Operation American Spring demanding the overthrow of President Obama. Of course, in November, Larry Klayman held a similar rally calling for Obama’s ousting that he hoped would draw millions of people, but only drew about one hundred Tea Party activists.

The organizer, Harry Riley, predicts that “millions of Americans will participate” but warns that “patriots may be killed, wounded, incarcerated” and harassed by the government. After successfully overthrowing Obama, the group hopes to install a right-wing tribunal led by the likes of Allen West and Ted Cruz.

“[I]t will be painful, and some people may die because the government will not be non-violent; some of us will end up in a cell, and some may be injured,” writes the organizer. “If that’s what it will take to save our nation, do we have any choice? Freedom loving Americans will say there is no choice, we must begin the second American Revolution.”

I don’t consider the operation I’m working on as my initiative. A number of us have settled on an approach which we call OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING(OAS). It’s modeled after the people in Egypt(Cairo) who said “enough is enough” and went to the streets by the millions and stayed there until a resolution. We surely in America are saying “enough is enough”. That’s what we’re doing with OAS. It’s not the typical “go to D.C. for a day” and then go home, and we’re not having stages, speakers, etc in our plan. If someone else want to do that, have at it. We’re going with millions in the streets for a day or two and then leave a million or so in D.C. for weeks, months, whatever it takes. We’ll interfere with traffic, bridges, make our mandate known and stay there until..........?



Assumptions:

Millions of Americans will participate.

American veterans and patriots are energized to end the tyranny, lawlessness, and shredding of the US Constitution.

Government is not the target, it is sound; corrupt and criminal leadership must be removed.

Those in power will not hesitate to use force against unarmed patriots exercising their constitutional rights.

Patriots may be killed, wounded, incarcerated.

There is no hope given today’s technology of secrecy for the effort nor do we want it secret.



Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan, Issa, will comprise a tribunal and assume positions of authority to convene investigations, recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President.



There is not much time and the only planning necessary is to select a starting date, which we have done, and then show up in Washington, D.C. on that date, and plan to stay for the duration. The goal is restoring the US Constitution as the law of the land, removing the lawless leadership. Will this be a cake-walk? No, it will be painful, and some people may die because the government will not be non-violent; some of us will end up in a cell, and some may be injured. If that’s what it will take to save our nation, do we have any choice? Freedom loving Americans will say there is no choice, we must begin the second American Revolution. Not with guns, but with millions of Americans demanding a return to constitutional government and the resignation of Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi and Holder as a start...then the constitutional restoration process can begin. An AMERICAN SPRING can be avoided only if the above mentioned officials resign.

Government Is Not God PAC: Transgender People Are 'Mentally Ill And Need Treatment'

William Murray’s Government Is Not God PAC is deeply troubled by US-sponsored efforts to fight HIV/AIDS in Central America. As the HIV/AIDS Alliance notes, the prevalence of HIV is especially high “among sex workers, transgender people, and men who have sex with men.”

But Murray’s organization, citing a WorldNetDaily article, is upset that the Obama administration wants to “attack heterosexual norms” and “encourage sexuality and gender-equal workplace policies.”

“These are individuals who are mentally ill and need treatment,” the Religious Right group writes today in a blog post. “In short, your tax dollars will be used to hand out condoms to homosexuals, normalize cross-dressing and transsexuality, remove the 'stigma' from men and women who prostitute themselves or are drug addicts, and will be used to fight against 'heterosexual norms' in Central America.”

Your hard-earned tax dollars are hard at work in the Obama Administration. They’re now being used by the U.S. Agency For International Development (USAID) to attack heterosexual norms in other nations around the globe.

The primary target at this point is Central America, where USAID is pushing the Central America Project for a Sustainable Response to HIV (PASCA II).

The goal of the program is to fight “stigma” associated with homosexuals, intravenous drug users, prisoners, prostitutes (called “sex workers” by USAID), transsexuals, and other sexual deviates.

USAID will encourage sexuality and gender-equal workplace policies – including promoting the notion that people who have a gender identity disorder – will be protected in the workplace. These are individuals who are mentally ill and need treatment. They think they’re actually the opposite sex and they believe that they should be treated as if they were normal. This includes men wearing dresses to work and using women’s restrooms and shower facilities or women wishing to use men’s restrooms.

In short, your tax dollars will be used to hand out condoms to homosexuals, normalize cross-dressing and transsexuality, remove the “stigma” from men and women who prostitute themselves or are drug addicts, and will be used to fight against “heterosexual norms” in Central America.

The Republican Autopsy Report Revisited: 5 Ways The GOP Got Worse In 2013

With the year coming to a close, we decided to see how the GOP’s “bold” and “radical” autopsy report [PDF] was fairing.

After a devastating loss in 2012, Republicans claimed that they didn’t need to change themselves or their platform, but only cosmetic attributes such as their rhetoric and presentation. Other right-wing activists simply pretended that Republicans actually won the last election.

But if the actions taken this year by Republican leaders are any clue, it looks like Republicans either ignored or outright rejected even the superficial recommendations made in the GOP’s plan to revive the party:

1. Ending Aid To Jobless Americans

The perception, revealed in polling, that the GOP does not care about people is doing great harm to the Party…. To people who are flat on their back, unemployed or disabled and in need of help, they do not care if the help comes from the private sector or the government — they just want help.

Republicans in Congress rejected an extension of unemployment benefits, which will not only hurt approximately 1.3 million Americans during a period when long-term joblessness is still high, but will also result in serious harm to economic growth. If Republicans do not waver from their position, up to 5 million people could be affected by the cuts. The party also passed enormous cuts to the food stamp program under the auspices of preventing the tremendously low rate of fraud in an effort to kick 5 million people off of food assistance.

But the GOP continues to give special benefits to millionaires, as earlier this year Republicans once again rebuffed the “Buffet Rule,” which would have ensured that millionaires don’t end up having a lower tax rate than average Americans.

2. Blocking Immigration Reform

[W]e must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform…. On issues like immigration, the RNC needs to carefully craft a tone that takes into consideration the unique perspective of the Hispanic community.

Even though a majority of Americans and House members support immigration reform which includes a pathway to citizenship, the House GOP leadership refused this year to call a vote on reform bills. Speaker John Boehner even said that Republicans “have no intention of ever going to conference on the Senate bill.” But the House did find time to pass Rep. Steve King’s amendment to defund a program that prevents undocumented children being deported.

GOP politicians continue to argue that immigration reform will literally destroy America, and one Republican congressman even used the slur “wetbacks” while describing immigrants. Rep. Louie Gohmert said that Republicans must reject immigration reform to win over Latino voters, while Rep. King dismissed young Latinos as drug smugglers with cantaloupe-sized calves.

3. Rolling Back Reproductive Choice

Republicans should develop a more aggressive response to Democrat rhetoric regarding a so-called “war on women.”

Republicans claim it is unfair that people believe they are behind a “war on women,” but they didn’t do themselves any favors by approving a sweeping anti-abortion bill. Rep. Trent Franks, the chief sponsor of the legislation, defended his bill by channeling Todd Akin when he argued that “the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low,” and then fundraised off his remarks.

Fellow Republican Rep. Michael Burgess rallied support for the bill by citing masturbating fetuses. But perhaps the biggest steps Republicans took in dismantling Roe v. Wade occurred on the state level, where GOP-controlled state legislatures passed a range of extreme anti-choice bills.

4. Preserving Anti-Gay Views

For the GOP to appeal to younger voters, we do not have to agree on every issue, but we do need to make sure young people do not see the Party as totally intolerant of alternative points of view. Already, there is a generational difference within the conservative movement about issues involving the treatment and the rights of gays — and for many younger voters, these issues are a gateway into whether the Party is a place they want to be.

Even the GOP had to couch its call to be nicer to gay people as a political maneuver to making inroads with the youth vote, which helped secure President Obama’s re-election and is strongly in favor of LGBT equality. But the ties between the GOP and the anti-gay Religious Right remain rock solid, and many GOP leaders and potential presidential candidates addressed this year’s Values Voter Summit, where the event’s anti-gay sponsors and speakers repeatedly denounced gay rights.

Republican elected officials delivered stinging attacks against the Boy Scouts of America for ending its ban on gay members and also laced into the Supreme Court for overturning part of the Defense of Marriage Act, a law defended in court by the House GOP. Republican leaders like Sen. Ted Cruz ardently criticized marriage equality at Religious Right events, and even “libertarian” Republicans like Sen. Rand Paul denounced gay marriage, linking it to non-human marriage.

5. The Shrinking Party

We have become expert in how to provide ideological reinforcement to like-minded people, but devastatingly we have lost the ability to be persuasive with, or welcoming to, those who do not agree with us on every issue.

In case you needed more evidence that Republican politicians take cues from the GOP’s ultraconservative base, look no further than the government shutdown, where the congressional GOP leadership allowed the Tea Party “suicide caucus” to lead an enormously unpopular and economically harmful government shutdown.

Republicans ended up getting nothing from the shutdown, but Rep. Marlin Stutzman did illuminate the GOP’s thinking: “We’re not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”

While we keep hearing talk of Republicans trying to seem more inclusive and “fighting back” against the Tea Party, it isn’t clear that the party is actually presenting any real challenge to Tea Party-aligned politicians. In fact, it seems that the GOP is actively embracing Tea Party’s extremist policies, fervent rhetoric and ideological purity tests.

The 2013 Equine Posterior Award: Vote For Your Favorite Right-Wing Extremist

Conservative leaders stooped to new lows of extremism and bigotry this year, not to mention their ridiculous endeavors such as the pointless but damaging government shutdown and the delusional War on Christmas.

Every year we “honor” our radical friends on the Far Right with the Equine Posterior Achievement Award, and you the reader get to decide who will take the grand prize.

Take a minute to vote here, and check out the nominees for 2013:

Sarah Palin: The reality TV star and former one-and-a-half-year governor has been pushing the War on Christmas hoax, even citing Thomas Jefferson in her crusade against the non-existent war.

Michele Bachmann: In her last term serving in the House, the Minnesota congresswoman charged that 9/11 was God's judgment, claimed that Obama is ushering in the End Times and asked God to defeat Hillary Clinton.

Gordon Klingenschmitt: The TV exorcist has waged an unsuccessful fight to shut down RWW's YouTube channel in an attempt to hide his shocking anti-gay rants.

Ted Cruz: In addition to spearheading a disastrous government shutdown, Cruz once joked that the White House would kidnap him. Is it any wonder the junior senator from Texas has the biggest ego in Congress? (And that's saying something.)

Pat Robertson: Realizing his career as a homophobic televangelist, Robertson thinks gay people want to attack straight people with special AIDS rings and recruit their children.

Steve King: As the GOP's point person on xenophobic rhetoric, the Iowa congressman smeared immigrants as drug runners with "calves the size of cantaloupes" and called anyone who disagreed with him unpatriotic.

Glenn Beck: Leaving Fox News hasn’t stopped Beck from delivering his usual conspiracy theories, downright maniacal attacks on the Obamas, coming up with creepy stunts and dishing out bad parenting advice.

Former General Turned Conservative Activist Calls For Citizen's Arrest Of Obama

Paul Vallely, a former general who now works as a conservative activist and Fox News analyst, suggested in a recent interview that President Obama should face citizen’s arrest for his supposedly treasonous crimes.

After suggesting that the country hold a “national recall” election, which he admitted has no basis in the constitution, Vallely urged people “get off our derrieres” and protest the government in the millions: “If we’ve got to march in the state capitals, if we’ve got to march in Washington with one hundred million people, then that’s what we need to do.”

He even called for a citizens’ arrest against the President and administration officials: “I would say if we can make citizens’ arrest, I challenge our government that if we have people that are conducting treason against the United States and the best interests of our country, violating the Constitution, violating our laws, just as they are doing with these excessive executive orders that are coming out of the White House where you have a President and his team that doesn’t care about the Constitution.”

Back in November, Vallely endorsed a Tea Party rally in Washington D.C. calling for Obama’s overthrow, although it didn’t exactly draw one hundred million people. Vallely has also published several columns that accuse Obama of treason.

“They will do anything they can to win, they will do anything, they will go for the throat and that’s what we have to do because we’re in battle to save the United States, so we have options out there and we have to pursue all of those options to take the country back.”

Vallely said he that an Egyptian-style uprising against Obama is needed instead of impeachment: “I would use the Egyptian model where they had 33 million Egyptians stand up to oust Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. We need millions to stand up in our state capitals and in Washington D.C. and we need to have that done within the next twelve months because I can tell you , my forecast, things are going to get far worse than better, especially with Obamacare and the other things that are happening to degrade the effectiveness of our federal government.”

Right Wing Round-Up - 12/26/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 12/26/13

  • The reactions to the "Duck Dynasty" controversy just keep getting more ridiculous by the day.
  • Tom DeLay is writing a new book in which he urges Congress  to simply "pick three unconstitutional programs run by the federal government each week and pull all funding for them."
  • "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is worried that "teaching our children to believe in Santa will eventually lead them to believe that God is also make-believe."
  • Jerome Corsi is producing a series of articles "on the Obama administration’s campaign to enroll lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens in Obamacare, which force private insurers to cover the high-risk population by distributing the burden to other citizens and away from government."
  • Finally, Erik Rush demands that everyone stop pretending that Barack Obama is the president: "When are we going to stop pretending that the individual representing himself as Barack Hussein Obama and currently holding the office of president of the United States is anything other than a foreign-backed, Marxist operative and Islamist whose objectives include the effective destruction of America as we know it?"

The Year In Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck fancies himself something of a prophet - not a terribly accurate one, mind you, like one that can tell you when things are going to happen, but more of a generalist who issues vague warnings about dark days ahead and then seizes upon random current events as proof that everything he has been warning about is coming true.

To honor Beck's remarkable gift for discerning the future, we decided to take a look back at some of the claims he made over the previous year to highlight his amazing record of wrongly predicting just about everything and generally just being a lunatic.

Beck began the year by boldly proclaiming that "Hank Rearden is about to pour some steel" and fundamentally transform America, by which he meant himself and his grandiose plans to create a $2 billion libertarian compound. More modestly, Beck also intended to permanently change the way the nation celebrated the 4th of July, which he accomplished by dressing up as the Man In The Moon and telling America's history from the moon's perspective.

In between those tasks, Beck spent program after program warning his audience that President Obama is trying to foment a race-based civil war and seeking to confiscate weapons in order to re-impose slavery and eventually start killing American citizens.

For a few days in March, Beck become convinced that the government was going to start seizing the bank accounts of America citizens just like what was happening in Cyprus and urging his audience to start hoarding cash. But that obsession soon gave way to a crusade that he launched against Common Core, which he called the "biggest story in American history" because it is an evil plot to turn school children into cogs living under a police state.

When not freaking out about the future of technology, Beck became convinced that the bombing at the Boston Marathon was an al Qaeda attack backed by Saudi Arabia and vowed to take down the government if it did not come clean. For days, Beck harped about this supposed cover-up ... until it was revealed that he didn't really have any idea what he was talking about, at which point he gave up and moved on.

And what he moved on to his theory that a man who shot himself at the Houston airport while the NRA convention happened to be in town was part of a "false flag" operation carried out by Occupy Wall Street in order to push for gun control. That was also entirely untrue and so Beck dropped it after a few days, never to mention it again.

Then came the IRS scandal, which prompted Beck to demand President Obama's impeachment ... because it was designed to cover up what really happened in Benghazi. When that didn't work, Beck called for Obama's impeachment over his actions in Syria, which was also designed to cover up for Benghazi as well as start World War III and establish a one-world government. Beck openly accused Obama of engaging in treason even though he, once again, had literally no idea what he was talking about.

At one point, Beck promised a story that would rock the nation, but all that emerged was some coalition of Tea Party members in Congress who refused to back immigration reform.  Nothing ever came from this supposed scoop, but that didn't stop him from promising other such scoops, which likewise never materialized.

Through it all, Beck somberly warned his audience time and again that America's days were numbered because society had gone insane and been engulfed in darkness. Until, that is, Beck spoke at a Tea Party rally in Washington, DC and realized that the Tea Party is the modern day civil rights movement and the people forseeen by God and the Founding Fathers who would one day rise up and save this nation ... just as Beck has been trying to do throughout his career:
