Right Wing Leftovers - 12/9/13

  • E.W. Jackson will do what every failed Republican candidate does: launch a political action committee.
  • Richard Viguerie went to Israel and found some government minister who doesn't trust President Obama and apparently that is news or something.
  • The Sen. Ted Cruz coloring book is finally here!
  • Nice timing, Rep. Ted Yoho.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says that Ted Cruz's praise for Nelson Mandela has "raised more questions about Ted Cruz then probably anything he's done."

Shilling For Profit: A Case Study Of ALEC's Campaign Against Divestment From Apartheid South Africa

In the 1980s, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) aggressively mobilized against divestment from apartheid South Africa.

Fischer: Pot Should Be Illegal Because Its Use Violates Biblical Teaching

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer spent the better part of one segment railing against the dangers of marijuana and saying that it should never be legalized because it's use violates the teachings of the Bible.

Citing Paul's admonition in Ephesians 5:18 that believers should "not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit," Fisher said marijuana should be illegal because people "are not to be under control of anything except for the Holy Spirit."

This would, of course, also apply to alcohol, which Fischer presumably thinks ought to be illegal as well ... as should hypnosis, apparently, which Fischer also warned against.

"I'm primarily opposed to marijuana use," Fischer said, "just for the same reason I'm opposed to drunkenness, same reason I'm opposed to cocaine use and heroin use: it's turning control of your humanity over to something other than God."

VDARE Remembers Nelson Mandela, 'Monster' And 'Nasty Individual'

The white nationalists at VDARE have responded to the death of Nelson Mandela with a flurry of blog posts painting the former South African leader as a “monster” and “nasty individual” responsible for destroying “first-world South Africa.”

In an essay posted on VDARE just hours after Mandela’s death, “RIP Nelson Mandela – And The Dream of A First-World South Africa,” James Kirkpatrick wrote, “The legacy of Nelson Mandela is a slow motion white genocide and the ruin of a once great country.” The end of apartheid, he argued “should provide a useful lesson for Western whites who are being reduced to minorities in their own historic homelands”:

The legacy of Nelson Mandela is slow motion white genocide and the ruin of a once great country. However, he didn’t kill all his opponents. Implicit in the rejoicing of the Main Stream Media at his legacy is the idea that South African whites deserve to be murdered, but Mandela magnanimously refrained. This should provide a useful lesson for Western whites who are being reduced to minorities in their own historic homelands.

In “post-Apartheid” South Africa, all one has to do to be a civil rights hero is not be too enthusiastic in calling for the murder of whites. If one does kill them, the media won’t praise you… but they won’t condemn you either.

We all must face death, so RIP to Nelson Mandela. He certainly is not the worst leader Africa has produced.

But what no one else will say is: RIP to the Boer farmers being murdered every day, to the Afrikaners attacked in the streets, to the poor blacks savaged by ANC thugs and police... .and finally, rest in peace, the dream of a First World South Africa.

The next day, VDARE’s Patrick Cleburne chimed in with a blog post calling Mandela a “nasty individual.”

“What America should be celebrating is the courage and wisdom of the leaders of White South Africa in keeping this monster away from power until it was, for his purposes, too late,” Cleburne wrote.

John Derbyshire, for his part, compared the international mourning for Mandela to North Korean displays of grief after the death of Kim John Il.

Rios: Mandela Was A Criminal & 'Criminals Are Placed In Solitary Confinement'

On Friday, American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios lashed out at Nelson Mandela, who was imprisoned for 27 years, and said that he deserved to be in jail because he was a violent criminal:

Nelson Mandela was placed in prison because of the violence that he did in the country of South Africa. Now you can argue, I guess, you can say it was worth it because we overthrew apartheid, I don’t know, is that really the way a victory should be won? Is this really a righteous cause? Is he really a saint for doing this? They talk about him being in solitary confinement, well, criminals are placed in solitary confinement, if you murder other people you lose your rights.

Rios later wondered if race relations in South Africa have improved since the end of the apartheid system.

“I don’t think the picture of South Africa as it stands now is what the narrative is, certainly to be a white person in South Africa is not a very fun thing right now,” Rios said. “I think that they have now obtained suppressing the white population with the black population holding the superior vantage point.”

Cashill: Prosecuting George Zimmerman On Civil Rights Grounds Is Like Prosecuting Nelson Mandela Or Mother Theresa

WND contributor Jack Cashill recently released a book entitled "'If I had a Son': Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman," in which he argues that Zimmerman is a hero who has been unfairly maligned by the media.

Last week, Cashill appeared on TheDoveTV to promote the book and was asked what he thought about the possibility that the Justice Department might file civil rights charges against Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin. Cashill was not supportive, to say the least, primarily because "George Zimmerman may have been the least racist person in the state of Florida."

In fact, Cashill stated, Zimmerman was a civil rights hero and prosecuting him "would be like going after Nelson Mandela on civil rights, or Mother Theresa":

Tancredo: 'Street Hustler' Obama Trying To Compare Himself To Mandela

Tom Tancredo, the former Republican congressman and possible 2014 Colorado gubernatorial candidate, is angry that President Obama wants to compare himself to Nelson Mandela, even though Obama hasn’t done that. Tancredo writes in a WorldNetDaily column, “Mandela and Obama: Hero vs. Street Hustler,” that “our reigning narcissist” sees himself like the late South African leader.

“Obama does remind me of Winnie Mandela, the scandalous, self-serving, demagogic second wife whom Nelson Mandela divorced because she was such an embarrassment,” Tancredo adds. “We can only wish that America could divorce Obama as easily as Mandela divorced his agitator-wife, but Obama’s crimes are more insidious and his support network more forgiving than Winnie Mandela’s.”

Curiously, Tancredo’s column hailing Mandela as South Africa’s George Washington ran in WorldNetDaily, whose editor Joseph Farah explicitly condemned Obama for likening Mandela to George Washington.

This week the world lost a rare, genuine hero of national reconciliation and racial progress, Nelson Mandela. A leader of Mandela’s character, courage and nobility comes along maybe once in a century; the 21st century has yet to see one.

Comparisons of Mandela and Obama are probably inevitable, especially when promoted by our reigning narcissist, Obama himself.

Yes, Barack Obama can be compared to Nelson Mandela – the same way a midget is compared to a giant, a zircon to a diamond, or a street-corner hustler to an astronaut. No matter how hard the mainstream media try to paint a different picture, Obama will forever remain a little speck lost in Mandela’s long shadow.

On the other hand, in one way Obama does remind me of Mandela, but not the Mandela whose legacy will be celebrated universally. Obama does remind me of Winnie Mandela, the scandalous, self-serving, demagogic second wife whom Nelson Mandela divorced because she was such an embarrassment.

We can only wish that America could divorce Obama as easily as Mandela divorced his agitator-wife, but Obama’s crimes are more insidious and his support network more forgiving than Winnie Mandela’s. She and her bodyguards were convicted of kidnapping and assault, and her tenure in the South African Parliament was marked by controversy and arrests for financial manipulations.



Mandela was not corrupted by the trappings of power, by the love of popular adulation or the lure of riches. His nation needed a George Washington, not an Adolf Hitler, and he filled the role beautifully. Mandela served only one five-year term as president of South Africa before turning over leadership to a new generation.



The United States’ constitutional traditions used to provide a model for emerging nations to follow in contrast to dictatorships and military dynasties. As Barack Obama heads off to Nelson Mandela’s funeral, we can only hope South Africa’s leaders look to America’s past achievements for guidance and inspiration, and not our present condition as a nation spiraling downward into the despotism our ancestors fought so nobly to avoid.

WND Remembers Nelson Mandela By Calling Him A Con Man

WorldNetDaily’s magazine, WND Weekly, will dedicate its latest issue to smearing Nelson Mandela:

WND Weekly is run by Elizabeth Farah, the wife of WND editor Joseph Farah, who has denounced Mandela as a terrorist bent on anti-white genocide.

The day after Mandela’s death, the group polled its readers about their perceptions of his “life and work.” Most answered that he should have been kept in jail.

A Convention Of States: The Right's Latest Plan To Amend The Constitution

For the last several months, spurred on by the publication of Mark Levin's "The Liberty Amendments," right-wing activists have been floating the idea of convening a "Convention of States" through which representatives of the individuals states would gather together for a convention to amend the Constitution and reign in the federal government.

Under Article V of the Constitution, "legislatures of two thirds of the several states" have the power to "call a convention for proposing amendments" and the idea to convene such a convention has been warmly embraced by people like David Barton who has promoted it not only on his radio program but also while filling in as host on Glenn Beck's television program.

Recently, Beck himself has begun promoting it as well and today his The Blaze website reported that nearly 100 right-wing legislators from 32 states met in Virginia over the weekend as the first steps toward turning this fringe fantasy into reality:

Close to 100 legislators from 32 states met in Mount Vernon, Va., Saturday to discuss the possibility of adding amendments to the U.S. Constitution through a convention of the states.

...

Lawmakers on Saturday discussed term limits on U.S. lawmakers and certain limits on federal taxation and spending as possible amendments, Red Millennial noted.

State legislators stressed Saturday the bipartisan nature of support for the discussed amendments, citing a recent poll that shows 74 percent of Americans support a balanced budget amendment while another 75 percent support congressional term limits.

Saturday’s Mount Vernon meeting was organized by Indiana state Sen. David Long and Wisconsin Rep. Chris Kapenga.

There has been growing support for the idea of a convention, but there is also healthy skepticism.

Still, regardless of whether one thinks it’s a realistic idea, Virginia and South Carolina have both pre-filed applications for a convention, meaning some are taking the idea very seriously.

Saturday’s meeting represents the most recent attempt by legislators to discuss seriously the possibility of adding amendments to the Constitution through a convention.
