Glenn Beck Assures His Audience The Tea Party Was Not Involved In The Cochran Trespassing Incident

A few days ago, a conservative blogger in Mississippi named Clayton Kelly was arrested "after allegedly trespassing at the nursing home where Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran's wife lives and posting a picture of the Republican's spouse online without permission."

Kelly was apparently a supporter of Chris McDaniel, who is running against Cochran in the upcoming Republican primary and today, Glenn Beck invited McDaniel onto his radio program to discuss his race, during which Beck fumed that the media was falsely claiming that the Tea Party was involved in this episode.

From Beck's perspective, Kelly could not be a Tea Party member at all because his blog contained various posts attacking Beck and echoing the conspiracy theories promoted by Alex Jones.

"That was not the Tea Party," Beck said about the incident, "but the mainstream media will make it look like the Tea Party":

Interestingly, just a few hours after that very discussion, two more men were arrested in connection with this incident, one of whom is reportedly the vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party:

Two more men were arrested in connection with the video of Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-Miss.) wife, allegedly made by an apparent supporter of his primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel.

According to The Courier-Ledger, attorney Mark Mayfield, a vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party and an officer with the Central Mississippi Tea Party, and is reportedly close with McDaniel staff, was arrested Thursday by the Madison Police Department in connection with the case.

Selwyn Duke Angry About Michelle Obama's Speech Praising Desegregation

Writing for Alan Keyes’s group Renew America today, conservative pundit Selwyn Duke says that he was disgusted by First Lady Michelle Obama’s recent speech commemorating the Brown v. Board of Education ruling.

Duke writes that the first lady, instead of condemning segregation and slavery, should be grateful and “kiss the ground trod by our ancestors and thank God for our civilization's existence.”

“Really, this all reminds me of how no good deed goes unpunished,” he adds.

Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco – and Michelle Obama left her brain in 1954.

Addressing graduating high-school students the other day in the Topeka, Kansas, school district, the federal lunch lady said, referring to the Brown v. Board of Education decision, "[Y]our experience here in Topeka would have been unimaginable back in 1954...." And perhaps this is true.

It also would have been unimaginable back in 1554 or 954. After all, the institutions making that experience possible hadn't been birthed yet.

You know, those institutions created by European/ European-descent civilization.

That civilization that Darth Vegan is tacitly impugning with her racial agitation.

The point is that if you're going to talk about the past, don't tendentiously cherry-pick it for destructive ideological purposes. It's much as discussion about slavery. Not only is the focus always on the less than one percent of the history of slavery that was written in the US (it's one of the world's oldest institutions), but the most significant point is missed: Whites were not the first to practice slavery.

But they were the first to abolish it.

If some take offense at this, they can pound sand. I take offense at the constant derision aimed at my civilization by critics who should get down on their knees, kiss the ground trod by our ancestors and thank God for our civilization's existence. Where else could effete ne'er do wells complain about injustice while living a life of silk, satin and Sidwell Friends and dining on Kobe beef?

Really, this all reminds me of how no good deed goes unpunished.

People For the American Way's Marge Baker Stands With Congressional Leaders To Call For Amending the Constitution To Overturn Citizens United

This Tuesday at a press conference in the US Capitol hosted by Brave New Films and featuring Robert Greenwald’s latest documentary, “Koch Bros Exposed,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Bernie Sanders and People For the American Way Executive Vice President Marge Baker made a resounding call for amending the Constitution to overturn the Supreme Court’s egregious decisions like Citizens United and McCutcheon v. FEC.

“We need our voices heard… we need to change the status quo,” Majority Leader Reid stated after calling for an amendment.

“We need a government by the many, not a government by the money,” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi echoed. She went on to declare, “the time to amend the Constitution is now!”

Comparing the amount the Koch brothers spent in the 2012 election cycle to the amount they made, on average, over the past three years, Sen. Sanders pointed out: “$400 million is not a lot of money when you make $11 billion a year.”

Following Sen. Sanders, People For the American Way’s Executive Vice President for Policy and Program, Marge Baker, took the podium and stated, “The time has come to discuss solutions.”  She highlighted the growing support for the amendment strategy, the momentum behind the small donor empowering Government By the People Act, the push at the state level for disclosure and campaign finance law, and the growing movement around the country of everyday citizens who are working to build a more democratic government.

Dave Daubenmire Lashes Out At 'President Homobama,' Says Hillary Clinton 'Screams Lesbian'

Religious Right pundit “Coach” Dave Daubenmire writes in a column today that he’s tired of listening to “President Homobama,” “Debbie Whats-in-her-mouth Shultz” and “low-testosterone” men on “progressive cable TV.”

He goes on to blame the “constant barrage of gender-void reporters,” namely “bossy women and gelded men,” on the gays and “earth-worshippers” in Hollywood who make sure that “a middle-of-the-road-homo-football player be celebrated while the God-fearing Twin-Towers of Truth the Benham Brothers are ridiculed.”

He adds: “Is it me, or does your mind scream ‘lesbian’ when you see Hillary?”

Look at the Progressive Democrats that are currently riding herd on the American culture. If they lived in your neighborhood, where the “real” Americans live, would any of them have any qualities that would cause you to peek out from behind the curtains when they drove by?

Hillary Clinton? Nancy Pelosi? Harry Reid? What about Dick Durbin, Chuck Shumer [sic], John Kerry, or Debbie Whats-in-her-mouth Shultz? Are you kidding me? Sergeant Shultz from Hogan's Heroes knows more than they do and he was constantly telling us “I know nothing...” Seems to me that is the same position that President Homobama has carved out.



And the media is even worse. My buddy Tom tells me he'd love to have five minutes in a UFC ring with any number of the talking heads on the tube. My goodness, progressive cable TV is ground zero of the low-testosterone gaggle of Chris Hayes, Anderson Cooper, Ronan Farrow, Don Lemon...only Rachel Maddow shows any hint of manliness.

If they didn't have a TV show no one would give a hoot in hell what they think. Why is it Ted Nugent can keep my attention; especially when verbally slapping the sissified Brit Piers Morgan? Is it by accident that we are being fed a constant barrage of gender-void reporters? Manliness is definitely missing in the American newsroom.

Women don't like bossy men the experts like to tell us. So to counter that image, they feed us bossy women and gelded men. Is it me, or does your mind scream “lesbian” when you see Hillary?

What are you afraid of? Say it. Get used once again to speaking what's on your mind. And what about the frauds in Hollywood? They are especially deficient. I have had a bit of experience around the “theatre” crowd and there cannot be a more dysfunctional group of people than those who live their lives playing the role of someone they are not. Alcoholism, drug-abuse, debauchery, divorce, fornication, earth-worship, and homosexuality are characteristics that seem to be most prevalent in Entertainment Industry.



And the gayness...OMG!! Try as they might they will never be able to convince a large majority of Americans that their behavior is normal. All they can do is make you afraid to say it.

Hey! What the hell are you afraid of? Why are we letting the ingrates listed above control the direction of this nation? Homosexuality is abnormal. Go ahead and practice saying it. It is liberating.

Only in America can a middle-of-the-road-homo-football player be celebrated while the God-fearing Twin-Towers of Truth the Benham Brothers are ridiculed. Up is down and down is up. Evil is good and good is evil. That has happened because of me and you. Our cowardice has permitted the depraved and debaucherous to set the tempo in America while the silent super-majority cowers in the corner afraid to be ridiculed...while they willfully pay for their children to be indoctrinated in lies.

Ben Carson Suggests Monica Wehby Only Supports Abortion Rights In Order To Win Votes

In an apparent effort to bolster the conservative credentials of embattled Oregon GOP U.S. Senate nominee Monica Wehby yesterday, Ben Carson implied that she only supports abortion rights in order to win votes.

Wehby has campaigned as a candidate who is “personally pro-life” but supports a woman’s right to choose, a view held by many in the pro-choice community.

Carson suggested in an interview with Steve Malzberg of Newsmax TV that Wehby only took a pro-choice stance in order to help her stay competitive in her race to unseat Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley. Carson, who has endorsed Wehby, said that she is only running as a pro-choice candidate because she’s a “savvy” and “pragmatic” politician who is “personally pro-life” but “knows there’s no way you’re going to win in Oregon with that stance.”

When Malzberg asked if he was “saying she’s lying or compromising her values,” Carson denied suggesting that Wehby was taking a politically-calculated stance on abortion rights.

Brian Brown's Far-Right French Allies Working To Form 'Pro-Russian Bloc' In European Parliament

The New York Times and Slate this week reported on the European far right’s love affair with Vladimir Putin, which could lead to the formation of “a pro-Russian bloc” in the European Parliament following this week’s elections.

The Times story focused on the French National Front party, and in particular Aymeric Chauprade, a top advisor to National Front leader Marine Le Pen and himself a candidate for European parliament.

Chauprade was a member of the small delegation of French activists who traveled to Moscow last year with National Organization for Marriage leader Brian Brown to advocate for Russia’s adoption of a spate of new anti-gay policies. Brown later said that he was invited to participate in the delegation by activists working with the Illinois-based World Congress of Families. The apparent leader of the delegation was French far-right activist Fabrice Sorlin, a former National Front candidate who runs an NGO devoted to developing “better relations between France and Russia” and who was appointed last year [pdf] as the World Congress of Families’ representative in France.

In a speech to fellow activists and members of Russia’s parliament at the meeting Brown attended, Chauprade backed Putin’s anti-gay policies along with the Russian president’s bid for greater geopolitical power, saying, “In this new battle…those who do not want the U.S. anti-missile shield, the dominance of NATO, or the war against Syria and Iran are in the same camp as those who refuse the loss of sovereignty, population replacement on a grand scale, FEMEN, gender theory, homosexual marriage, as well as the further commodification of the human body.”

Chauprade repeated the theme in a speech quoted by the Times, in which he offered up Russia’s leadership as the way for Europe to break free of both the “technocratic elite serving the American and European financial oligarchy” and its “enslavement by consumerist urges and sexual impulses,” and attacks Eurovision Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst. Chauprade was an enthusiastic supporter of Russia’s incursion into Ukraine, and the Times notes that he joined a pro-Russian election monitoring outfit for Crimea’s vote to annex itself to Russia. The Economist characterized the observers as “a motley group of radicals” who “declared that the ballot, denounced by most Western governments as illegitimate, had been exemplary.”

Of course, Brown doesn’t subscribe to the views of everyone he’s ever been to a meeting with. But Chauprade’s activism illuminates an important subtext of the anti-gay activism that Brown and the World Congress of Families were aiding in Russia. For Putin and his far-right European allies, opposition to gay rights is part of a much larger project.

NYT:

While the European Union has joined Washington in denouncing Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the chaos stirred by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, Europe’s right-wing populists have been gripped by a contrarian fever of enthusiasm for Russia and its president, Vladimir V. Putin.

“Russian influence in the affairs of the far right is a phenomenon seen all over Europe,” said a study by the Political Capital Institute, a Hungarian research group. It predicted that far-right parties, “spearheaded by the French National Front,” could form a pro-Russian bloc in the European Parliament or, at the very least, amplify previously marginal pro-Russian voices.

Some of Russia’s European fans, particularly those with a religious bent, are attracted by Mr. Putin’s image as a muscular foe of homosexuality and decadent Western ways. Others, like Aymeric Chauprade, a foreign policy adviser to the National Front’s leader, Marine Le Pen, are motivated more by geopolitical calculations that emphasize Russia’s role as a counterweight to American power.

“Russia has become the hope of the world against new totalitarianism,” Mr. Chauprade, the National Front’s top European Parliament candidate for the Paris region, said in a speech to Russia’s Parliament in Moscow last year.

When Crimea held a referendum in March on whether the peninsula should secede from Ukraine and join Russia, Mr. Chauprade joined a team of election monitors organized by a pro-Russian outfit in Belgium, the Eurasian Observatory for Elections and Democracy. The team, which pronounced the referendum free and fair, also included members of Austria’s far-right Freedom Party; a Flemish nationalist group in Belgium; and the Jobbik politician in Hungary accused of spying for Russia.

Russia offers the prospect of a new European order free of what Mr. Chauprade, in his own speech, described as its servitude to a “technocratic elite serving the American and European financial oligarchy” and its “enslavement by consumerist urges and sexual impulses.”

The view that Europe has been cut adrift from its traditional moral moorings gained new traction this month when Conchita Wurst, a bearded Austrian drag queen, won the annual Eurovision Song Contest. Russian officials and the Russian Orthodox Church bemoaned the victory — over, among others, singing Russian twins — as evidence of Europe’s moral disarray.

At the National Front’s pre-election rally, Mr. Chauprade mocked the “bearded lady” and won loud applause with a passionate plaint that Europeans had become a rootless mass of “consumers disconnected from their natural attachments — the family, the nation and the divine.”

Fischer Thinks Bill Clinton Might Be Trying To Sabotage Hillary's Presidential Campaign

As we have noted before, Bryan Fischer seems to inhabit some bizarre parallel dimension in which innocuous episodes take on a profound significance that only he can understand.

Take, for example, Fischer's response yesterday to Bill Clinton's statement last week that it took Hillary Clinton six months to fully recover from the concussion she suffered in 2012. He was discussing the initial claims that the former Secretary of State had "faked" her concussion in order to avoid testifying about Benghazi, but Fischer spun that off into a wild theory about how the former president was trying to sabotage his wife's possible presidential run because "he doesn't want to share the limelight" and "maybe he doesn't want the media tracking his every move, for reasons I think are obvious to you and me":

Allen West Doubts Tammy Duckworth's Loyalty To Country, Angry About Democratic Picks For Benghazi Special Committee

Former congressman Allen West is angry about the Democratic picks for the latest House panel investigating the 2012 Benghazi attack. Speaking yesterday with Janet Mefferd, West criticized Elijah Cummings, Adam Smith, Adam Schiff, Linda Sanchez and Tammy Duckworth, the Democratic lawmakers picked to fill the party’s five slots on the 12-member GOP-led “special committee.”

West especially raised doubts about Duckworth, a veteran who lost both of her legs and the use of her right arm in the Iraq War, raising suspicions about her loyalty to the country.

“Tammy Duckworth, you know I just don’t know where her loyalties lie, for her to have been a veteran and a wounded warrior for the United States Army, she should know that this is not the right thing and hopefully she will remember the oath of office that she took as an Army officer and not the allegiance I guess she believes she has to the liberal progressives of the Democrat [sic] party,” West said.

He also attacked Sanchez for the “whiny way that she has,” called Smith a “geeky little debater” and said Cummings “should not be on that committee.”

BarbWire Contributor Says 'Homosexual Leaders Are The Most Vile, Vicious, And Vitriolic People In The World'

We have to admit that the launch of Matt Barber's "BarbWire" website has been a real boon to our blogging efforts as its mission seems to be to scour the internet in an effort to find the most virulently anti-gay pieces it can and then publish them all in the same place, thereby saving us a lot of work and giving us a constant source of content.

Case in point is today's piece by Don Boys laying out his disgust over Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend upon being drafted by the St. Louis Rams, which features a modified version of Peter LaBarbera's censored image with the word "sin" placed over the kiss that is labeled as "grosssamsinkiss.jpg":

Boys calls for boycott of both ESPN and the NFL while attacking "homosexual leaders" as "the most vile, vicious, and vitriolic people in the world" and lamenting that nobody is allowed to use words like "sodomite" and "pervert" anymore while talking about how gays engage in "fisting" and "rimming":

I would be outraged if my children or grandchildren had seen that depravity. Even if one’s sexual activities are private in the bedroom, they should not be public on national television. However, they seem not to be interested in keeping them private. When will normal people start making such hypocrites pay for their deception? No decent person should watch ESPN again. In the interest of higher ratings or, conversely, in the interest in promoting perversion, the network has earned the disdain, distrust, and disgust of the American people. STOP is suggesting that anyone with a modicum of decency stop watching ESPN and NFL games.

Sam declared on a network television show, “I have gotten messages from college and NFL players and other athletes … about how courageous I was.” Oh, yes. Those fleeing the closet are always “courageous,” “brave,” “historic,” but never narcissistic, fame seekers, or manipulative. The fascists at the Homosexual Lobby are thrilled that Sam has strolled out of the closet in support of their twisted, tangled, tawdry agenda. The homosexual leaders are the most vile, vicious, and vitriolic people in the world. However, they label as haters and bigots those of us who disagree with them, criticize them, and declare that homosexuality is wrong, has always been wrong and will always be wrong and no President, Supreme Court or Legislature can change that fact.

President Obama even magnified the gross actions by gushing, “From the playing field to the corporate boardroom, LGBT Americans prove every day that you should be judged by what you do and not who you are.” I certainly agree with that but no one wants to discuss what homosexuals do! They don’t just lock lips, hold hands, and bake cookies. Want to discuss “fisting”? No, no, not that. Too gross. How about “rimming”? No, not that, for sure. Well, how about “water sports”? No, better not. So, we are not to make a judgment based on what they do. The whole bunch are sanctimonious hypocrites.

We have witnessed in a stunning short time the normalization of sodomy in America. It is strange that homosexuals can do, say and advocate almost anything, no matter how crude or lewd and when a normal person disagrees, he is plummeted into submission. Whatever happened to the right to discuss, debate, and disagree over an issue in a civil matter? Furthermore, the use of good, time-honored words such as “sodomite,” “pervert,” and “deviant” are not uncivil, unkind, or untrue.

...

Michael Sam was wrong. Homosexuality is abnormal, aberrational, and afflictive and I love him enough to tell him the truth: homosexual behavior is disgraceful, dangerous and deadly. However, his supporters are greasing the skids for him as he slides further into a life of shame, sordidness and, yes, sin.And sin has repercussions!

Sam has also brought additional stigma upon a profession already known for its druggies, thugs, rapists, and killers. And now, his new team mates have to decide: to shower or not to shower.
