Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/11/15

  • Want to spend 24 hours on the National Mall singing the National Anthem with various Religious Right activists? You are in luck!
  • Franklin Graham says that if the Supreme Court strikes down gay marriage bans, it "sets the stage for persecution of believers committed to living by the truth of God’s Holy Word."
  • Some bad news from Jonathan Cahn: "[D]o I believe that we can avoid God's judgment, the hand of His shaking? No—not any more than could ancient Israel. No nation, so blessed with God's blessings, can so blatantly war against the God of its blessings and expect those blessings to continue. I believe a great shaking is coming to this nation."
  • Bryan Fischer says homosexuality "is a worse form of sexual sin because it deviates even further from God’s design for sexual union than adultery does."
  • Finally, apparently using the abbreviations B.C.E and C.E instead of B.C and A.D is a form of anti-Christian persecution: "On the surface it is peaceful and silent, but underneath just as deadly as the physical kind sans the torture, beheadings, and refugees."

Rios: 'Cleanse' Your School Board Of Those 'Homosexualizing Schools'

Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition stopped by “Sandy Rios in the Morning” today to discuss the Fairfax County, Virginia, school board’s recent decision to approve a gender identity nondiscrimination measure. Lafferty, who in her last appearance on the show called for schools to ban transgender teachers altogether, lamented the vote’s passage, decrying the “crazed board members” who backed the change.

Rios, the director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, told Lafferty that LGBT rights advocates have been “homosexualizing schools” for over two decades, warning that LGBT themes are “folded into the texts of almost every discipline.”

“Look at the polls showing how our kids feel about homosexuality, even Christian kids,” Rios continued. “Does anybody think that’s by accident? It’s because they are inundated with a steady flow — even in those nice, good schools that you think you have. Good teachers have been silenced and for the most part they have folded.”

She warned that parents only have two options: “You’ve either got to run for school board and cleanse your local governance of these kinds of people making these horrible decisions or you’ve got to pull your kids out of school. I don’t see another choice.”

“You are putting your children in such great danger now,” she said. “Danger because of the confusion, because of the temptation, because of the indoctrination. You’re not helpless to do something about it, but you will be.”

Michael Savage: Obama Prepared To Ban Guns, This Time For Real

Every year, we hear from right-wing outlets some new way that President​ Obama is going to secretly ban guns. Such gun bans, of course, never materialize, prompting the pundit to just move on to the next conspiracy theory.

Take Michael Savage, for example. Last year, the right-wing radio talk show host claimed that Obama would “use Ebola as a pretext” to “take the guns.” Since that never happened, Savage now has a new theory for his fans: Obama will sneak a gun ban into the Trans Pacific Partnership, a controversial free trade deal, without the public ever knowing about it.

“This is a dictatorship as sure as I’m sitting here,” Savage told his listeners on Friday. “Obama’s the most dictatorial president in American history, he was never fit for office, he was voted out of office in November.”

Savage cited a memo from Gun Owners of America that was posted on the conspiracy-theory outlet InfoWars, which claimed that the TPP may include “full implementation of the anti-gun UN Arms Trade Treaty” and an “illegal amnesty which locks in millions of new, anti-gun voters.”

Savage said that while he has no idea if such language is part of the TPP, he predicted that the “sneaky socialist” Obama will make sure that the trade agreement gives him “dictatorial power over America.”

Richard Mack Suggests States 'Nullify Federal Income Tax,' Hopes Process Will Remain 'Peaceful'

Richard Mack, the former Arizona sheriff who now heads a group that promotes “nullification” of federal laws at the state and county levels, suggested at an event in Tempe last week that states threaten to “nullify federal income tax” in order to stop money from going to the federal government. He added that he hoped the process of states “tak[ing] back” the 10th Amendment would remain “peaceful.”

Mack made the remarks at an event dedicated to opposing a proposed constitutional convention, which also featured Republican State Senate President Andy Biggs and Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes, who used the opportunity to call for Sen. John McCain to be hung for treason

“There isn’t anything that’s going on in our country today that the states can’t stop,” Mack said, encouraging states and counties to refuse to take federal funds and refuse to direct money to the federal government.

“And even spending,” he said. “You want to balance the budget? Get the governors together and the state legislatures together and tell them, ‘This is how it’s going to be from now on, we’re not going to send you this and we’re not taking this, we’re not going to do this, and we might even tell the citizens, we might even pass a law in Arizona to nullify federal income tax.’ That would be courageous, wouldn’t that? It would also be a lot of fun.”

“Who asserts the 10th Amendment? Who has the constitutional and moral and ethical obligation to enforce the 10th Amendment? Is that the federal government’s job? They’re destroying it. Who’s going to stand and enforce and defend the 10th Amendment? It’s us,” he said later in his talk. “We retain everything else that’s not given to them. If we don’t hold onto it, and we’ve allowed them to take it, we have to take it back. And hopefully we have the courage and the smarts and the wherewithal to keep this process peaceful. And if we get a lot of people doing it, and a lot of states doing it, and a lot of governors doing it, and a lot of sheriffs doing it, and a lot of counties doing it, it will remain peaceful. And that’s why my whole thing has been, we take back America county by county and state by state.”

Mack is currently leading an effort to stage a political takeover of an Arizona county to implement his radical nullification agenda.

Oath Keepers Founder: John McCain 'Should Be Hung By The Neck Until Dead'

Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes told a Tempe, Arizona, conservative gathering last week that Sen. John McCain should be tried for treason and “hung by the neck until dead” for going “along with the program of the destruction of this country.”

Rhodes was taking part in an event featuring opponents of a proposed constitutional convention, including Andy Biggs, the Republican president of the Arizona state senate, and “constitutional sheriff” Richard Mack, both of whom sat alongside Rhodes as he gave his remarks.

Arguing that a constitutional convention would be skewed by the political establishment like state party conventions, Rhodes recalled his experience serving as a Ron Paul delegate in the 2008 GOP convention in Nevada, which Paul supporters claim was ended abruptly in order to shut them out.

The “GOP good-ol’-boy network,” Rhode said, “were simply getting their preordained, anointed candidate who would go along with the program of the destruction of this country.”

“John Cain [sic] is a traitor to the Constitution,” he added. “He should be tried for treason before a jury of his peers — which he would deny you, he supports your denial of a jury trial, he supported the NDAA saying that he could just have the president slam you into a brig in North Carolina or South Carolina or wherever else he wanted to, try you by military tribunal and have you executed. He would deny you the right for trial to jury, but we will give him a trial for jury, and then after we convict him, he should be hung by the neck until dead. But that was their candidate!”

 

 

Fox Pundit Todd Starnes: Obama 'Radically Dismantling The American Family' With LGBT Rights

Last week on the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program, guest-host Craig James addressed a recent vote by the Fairfax County, Virginia, school board to add legal protections for gender identity to the school district’s non-discrimination policy, despite protests from Religious Right activists.

Fox News commentator Todd Starnes, who championed the effort to block the nondiscrimination provision, appeared on James’s show to denounce the board and attack the Obama administration for barring such discrimination under Title IX. “Your public schools are being turned into public indoctrination centers,” Starnes told James. “Moms and dads, they’re going to have to take back their schools or else this is going to happen in other districts around the country.”

James, incensed by the board’s decision, warned that similar protections for gender identity are “going to invade the rest of America, these other school districts.” “What in the world are we doing not waking up and seeing what’s taking place to our country?” he asked.

Starnes told listeners to rise up and fight Obama administration officials who are “radically deconstructing the American family … through the public school system.” Parents, he said, should “indoctrinate” their own children “the way we see fit.” He alleged that the administration was willing to “risk poor children going hungry by yanking the funding for free lunch” if the school district didn’t approve the non-discrimination measure.

James Dobson: America Eclipsing Nazi Germany

Speaking on Family Research Council President Tony Perkins’ radio program this weekend, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson warned that “immoral behavior” is leading America to be worse than Nazi Germany.

Dobson’s fellow guest, pastor Jack Graham, warned that America is about to witness an “implosion,” either in the form of “revival and restoration or judgment.” Lamenting “the disintegration of the moral fabric of this country,” he suggested that the U.S. was a moral country until only recently, explaining that while the Soviet Union wasn’t able to destroy the U.S., Americans are destroying our own country through immorality.

Dobson went one step further: “America has killed over 55 million babies, 55 million. You know, the Holocaust involved 6 million Jews, we’re talking 55 million babies. There’s a Planned Parenthood about two blocks from my house and I drive past it every day and I see these cars out there and I fear for the women who are making, I think, the biggest mistake of their lives and certainly the implications for their babies. We need, as a nation, to repent of the immorality, what we see on television and in the movies and how young people are being led into immoral behavior, there’s just so much.”

Glenn Beck Furious That Michelle Obama Dared To Note America Still Struggles With Racism

Surprising nobody, Glenn Beck spent an entire segment of his radio broadcast this morning attacking First Lady Michelle Obama for daring to address America’s enduring struggle with racism and prejudice in her commencement address at Tuskegee University in Alabama over the weekend.

After playing a few excerpts from Obama's speech, Beck and his co-hosts accused the first lady of hating America and of attempting to justify the behavior of those who rioted in Baltimore instead of delivering a message that told graduates that, despite whatever problems this nation may have, they can overcome them and still manage to achieve great things.

That, of course, was exactly the message of Obama's speech, but Beck chose to ignore that so that he could instead accuse her of trying to foment racial tension in an effort to drag this nation back to the 1960s.

"White people in droves went out to vote for you," Beck fumed, "and you were somehow invisible so much that you became the president and first lady of the United States of America? Tell me about the troubles that you have seen!"

"The whites have never felt it," Beck said, mocking the idea that only black people have felt the slights of discrimination and bigotry. "I mean, the conservatives have never felt it! The jobs that we are suddenly bypassed for because we're conservative, because of our viewpoint. The religious that are mocked on a daily basis and belittled. Yeah, we've never felt that. We don't know what it's like."

"We are not the country of Martin Luther King's time any more," Beck bellowed. "We are being dragged back to those days":

Ann Corcoran: Refugee Resettlement Meant To 'Rub Diversity In The Noses Of Conservative Communities'

As the United States plans to take in about 2,000 Syrian refugees this year — out of the nearly 4 million who have fled the country’s civil war — Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch is warning that resettlement efforts are merely attempts to create Democratic voters out of Muslim refugees who are using migration as “a form of jihad.”

Corcoran told Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson on Friday about her resistance to refugees from Muslim countries being resettled in her western Maryland community and throughout the country, saying that resettlement programs are a Democratic effort to gin up votes while pushing “the whole multicultural meme” on communities like hers.

“I think that it is partly driven by progressives looking for reliable left-wing Democrat voters, that’s a driving force,” she said, “I think there’s a certain amount of just wanting to rub diversity in the noses of conservative communities and places where there isn’t a lot of diversity and just bringing them in and push the whole multicultural meme on us.”

She warned that the refugees themselves have even more sinister motivations: “I can say from the standpoint of the Islamic reason for doing this, is that Mohammed told his followers to migrate to create an Islamic state throughout the world, and that’s exactly what they’re doing. Migration is a form of jihad.”

Mickelson was so sold on Corcoran’s cause that he promised to ask every single Republican presidential candidate he interviews about refugees coming to the U.S. not to “take refuge here” but “to advance Islam while they increase their lifestyle” at taxpayer expense.

“This is an existential threat to the United States,” he said. “This is absurd. You have radical Islam considers immigration to the United States an act of religious conformity, religious fidelity. It’s an act of jihad they’re commanded to do, and they’re doing so not because they have a legitimate reason to be, to take refuge here, although some may, but mostly it is to advance Islam while they increase their lifestyle, usually at the expense of the taxpayers.”

“It is an existential threat,” Corocoran agreed, adding that refugee resettlement is more dangerous that terrorist attacks. “Frankly, we could survive terrorist attacks in my mind, it might even make us stronger, but we’re not going to survive this migration,” she said. “We only need to look to Europe to see how far advanced Europe is in a very bad way.”

Mickelson added that while he was outraged by the attempted attack on an anti-Islam event in Texas by U.S.-born Islamic extremists, “the true outrages” like migration “are happening beneath the radar.”

End Times Fanatics Defend Bachmann: 'They Don't Want To Believe The Truth'

Over the weekend, the host of the End Times radio program where Michele Bachmann repeatedly asserted that President Obama was ushering in the End Times defended the former congresswoman’s comments.

“Understanding the Times” host Jan Markell chided Obama, who joked about the remarks at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and others who poked fun at Bachmann’s comments, calling them intolerant people who despise Bachmann for merely “telling the inconvenient truth.”

“Those who celebrate diversity have been busy showing a remarkable display of a lack of diversity in recent weeks from the president all the way on down,” Markell said. “The tolerant ones are having violent fits of intolerance, the open-minded left have once again revealed themselves to be 100 percent close-minded.”

Of course, Markell didn’t consider the fact that Bachmann’s assertion that the president is responsible for bringing about the Apocalypse might also be categorized as a personal attack that represents gross intolerance.

Producer Larry Kutzler agreed with Markell’s assessment: “Michele was right in what she said, it’s just that they don’t want to believe the truth.”
