Right Wing Leftovers - 10/23/13

  • Al Mohler told a Mormon audience that "I do not believe that we are going to heaven together, but I do believe we may go to jail together."
  • The ACLJ now says the IRS scandal was the result of "some very ugly, very targeted statements by the president of the United States" in conjunction with a “climate of hostility” created by congressional Democrats and the media.
  • If you are an anti-gay Christian, the Liberty Counsel wants you to know that they are "standing for your liberty."
  • Comedy, Concerned Women For America style.
  • Finally, the folks at AFA are none-too-pleased with remarks made by Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and Bryan Fischer uses it as an opportunity to vent: "The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) are in fact part of an evil conspiracy to celebrate behavior that according to Romans 1 is 'contrary to nature,' consists of 'shameless acts' and causes participants to 'receiv(e)...in themselves the due penalty for their error.'"

Beck: The Washington Redskins Are Being Targeted Because They Donated To The GOP

Responding to reports that the Baltimore Ravens were being paid to promote Obamacare, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts began looking through a report from 2009 that documented which political parties, by team, NFL owners, executives, and players donated to.

When Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere discovered that 97% of the donations made by people affiliated with the Washington Redskins went to the GOP, they knew immediately that this was the reason the team is currently at the center of a debate over whether the term "Redskins" is offensive.

"Oh my gosh!" Beck marveled.  "Follow the money."

"I will bet you that is to send a message," he said, claiming that the Redskins are being tortured and having their right to free speech violated by vindictive political operatives.

Of course, the San Diego Chargers and Houston Texas donated both more money and a higher percentage of it to Republicans without being targeted ... but presumably that is all part of the conspiracy theory:

LaBarbera: Pro-Gay Rights Christians Inspired By Satan, Leading To 'Downfall Of American Society'

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality appeared on Crosstalk yesterday for a show on the “Same Sex Marriage Tsunami,” where he told host Vic Eliason that Christians who affirm gay people are pushing an “insidious lie” that is “straight from Satan’s talking points.”

“It is Isaiah 5:20 in action, ‘Evil is called good and good evil,’” LaBarbera said. “Homosexuality, rather than being the sinful thing it is, is now parlayed that opposition to homosexuality is the sin and people are made gay by God.”

Meanwhile, Eliason, the head of Voice of Christian Youth America, said he is deeply concerned that the phrase “OMG” is “said as a curse” to God and corrupting young people.

LaBarbera agreed with Eliason’s claim that homosexuality a “vulgar, terrible sin that by its very behavior marks it as among the worst,” and added that pastors who affirm gay people will be “judged more severely than others because they are in positions of spiritual authority, supposedly.”

He said that the National Cathedral, an Episcopal church which supports gay rights, has now become a symbol of “the downfall of American society and American civilization.”

“We have become a morally corrupt nation,” he lamented. “Until we get right with God we will continue to go downhill.”

Eliason went on to lambast public schools for “promoting diversity” and to attack us here at Right Wing Watch for trying to “intimidate” them by quoting them verbatim.

Pennsylvania Republicans Seek To Impeach Pro-Gay Rights Attorney General

A Republican state representative in Pennsylvania is circulating a memo calling for the impeachment of the state’s attorney general, Kathleen Kane, for her “misbehavior in office” and “violation of her constitutional, statutory, and ethical duties.” Earlier, a Republican state senator also called for her impeachment and asked the legislature to reduce her office’s budget.

Kane recently said that she “cannot ethically defend the constitutionality of Pennsylvania’s version of DOMA” because “it is wholly unconstitutional.”

The state representative proposing impeachment, Daryl Metcalfe, recently stopped an openly gay colleague from speaking in favor of marriage equality on the state house floor after the Supreme Court’s recent rulings on marriage, saying is colleague was in “rebellion against God’s law.” Metcalfe even opposed a resolution condemning domestic violence because he feared it would advance the “homosexual agenda.”

All public officials in Pennsylvania swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and laws of this Commonwealth. The Commonwealth Attorneys Act imposes a mandatory duty on the Attorney General to defend the constitutionality of lawfully enacted statutes in any challenge filed in court.

Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane recently made a public declaration that she would not defend a federal lawsuit challenging the statutory definition of marriage. Ironically, Attorney General Kane explained that she could not “ethically” defend a law that she believed to be “wholly unconstitutional,” but making such a public statement that hinders the defense of the litigation violates the ethics rules that all attorneys are bound to follow.

In the near future, I will be introducing a resolution containing articles of impeachment against Attorney General Kane. Impeachment is a rarely used, but extremely important, tool to address misbehavior in office. Attorney General Kane’s violation of her constitutional, statutory, and ethical duties cannot be tolerated if our system of government is to work properly.

Attorney General Kane’s refusal to follow the law already led to further violations of the law when the Montgomery County Register of Wills cited Kane’s decision as a reason to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. When the Commonwealth Court entered an order that stopped this practice, the Court reiterated the well-established principle that every act of the legislature is presumptively constitutional until a court declares otherwise. Attorney General Kane has created a constitutional crisis by refusing to perform her assigned role and usurping the role of the courts.

It is our duty to stop her from engaging in further misbehavior in office.

Beck: NBC Has Sided With Satan And 'Chosen The Path Of Darkness'

Glenn Beck kicked off his radio program today with an extended rant against NBC, stemming from an incident yesterday when CNBC's Steve Liesman asked for some "Mexican music" to be played while they talked about Ted Cruz.

Saying this was just the latest example of an NBC network intentionally fomenting racial division in America, Beck urged his listeners to start sending out tweets of other example using the hasthtag #NBCRaceCrimes.

Somehow, this discussion eventually came to incorporate the book "The Lucifer Effect," which prompted Beck to declare that the networks for NBC "have chosen the path of darkness" promoted by Satan:

Conspiracy Theorists Warn Bill De Blasio Is The Candidate Of 'International Communism, Terrorism And Global Islam'

Far-right activists are holding a press conference to blast New York mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio as a communist Islamist. An advertisement for the event features a photo of de Blasio next to an image of the 9/11 attacks.

Cliff Kincaid, a notorious right-wing conspiracy theorist, and anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller are sponsoring the press conference:

Obama-backed "Progressive" candidate linked to international communism, terrorism, and global Islam

A press conference on Thursday, October 24, in the Big Apple will blow the lid off the "Marxist power couple" running for mayor of New York City. That's how veteran journalist and event organizer Cliff Kincaid describes Bill de Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray, who took their "honeymoon" in Cuba in violation of the law and are considered the frontrunners to occupy Gracie Mansion when the NYC mayoral election takes place on November 5.

Kincaid says it is time that de Blasio's plans to close down police surveillance of potential terrorists be examined in a public forum. "The city that suffered through the 9/11 terrorist attack needs to know what we have uncovered about this so-called 'progressive' candidate for mayor," he said.

In addition to Kincaid, director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism and president of the public policy group America's Survival, Inc., the speakers include:

• Pamela Geller on Arab/Muslim terrorism, why Islamists support de Blasio, and what the political group "Muslims for de Blasio" wants from the candidate.

• Tea Party leader Joe Connor on unanswered questions surrounding de Blasio's role in the Clinton pardons of the FALN terrorists who claimed his father's murder.

• World-famous blogger Trevor Loudon on the "democratic socialism" that is coming to New York City if de Blasio wins the mayor's race.



"De Blasio has made it clear, in going for Muslim votes, that he intends to dismantle the counter-terrorism programs of the New York City Police Department," Kincaid said. "He is pandering to Marxist and other Soros-funded lawyers who have sued the NYPD, and he has signaled that he is intends to isolate and hobble the police in the face of Muslim terror plots. The people of New York have a right to know what's in store for them, their families, and their loved ones."

De Blasio is running against Republican Joe Lhota, who is under fire from the "progressives" because of his reported backing from fiscal conservatives, also known as the Tea Party.

"It is bizarre that peaceful members of the Tea Party are considered more subversive than the terrorists who actually plot to kill us," Kincaid said. "But this is what de Blasio and his backers are saying they believe. De Blasio is promising to do for New York City what the progressives did to Detroit – high crime and bankruptcy. But the more immediate danger is terrorists being given the edge if his anti-police procedures, policies, and practices are put in place."

In addition to De Blasio's support for communist regimes in Cuba and Nicaragua and embrace of "progressive" elements of global Islam, his wife is a former lesbian and former member of a Marxist "collective" opposed to capitalism and freedom. Chirlane McCray is considered by some in the media to be the real power in the de Blasio for mayor campaign organization.

Kincaid said he also intends to raise questions at the press conference about backing for de Blasio from George Soros, the billionaire currency manipulator. The role of Soros – who was convicted of insider trading in France – in the U.S. housing market collapse has never been investigated by de Blasio, who carries the title of "Public Advocate" in New York City. Soros is a major funder of the progressive movement and President Obama's "fundamental transformation" of the United States. He also finances Marxist groups and Muslim causes.

Robertson: Mother Who Can't Heal Son's Deafness Must Be Doing Something Wrong

Pat Robertson says you must be doing something wrong if you can’t “heal” your son of deafness. After all, Robertson himself has healed deafness before, he said on the 700 Club today. Responding to a question from a mother who asked why her hearing impaired son hasn’t been healed despite her prayers, Robertson said that her son may be hindered by a “spirit of deafness.”

“I have dealt with people who are deaf and you rebuke the spirit of deafness and they get healed,” Robertson said. “I don’t know what you’re doing wrong.” 

“Why don’t you try that and if it doesn’t work, try something else,” he said.

WND: Ted Cruz Is America's Vaclav Havel

WordlNetDaily columnist Barry Farber thinks Ted Cruz could be America’s savior and a modern-day Vaclav Havel or Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. He even compares him to Joe McCarthy, but in a good way, and calls Cruz a “brilliant” and “rare, if not unique” leader who will rescue the country.

Along with Farber’s incorrect spelling of Havel’s first name, you could only imagine that the late Czech dissident, writer, and president would be laughing at this comparison.

The whole Cruz phenomenon reminds me of the billionaire industrialist who invited 50 of his most important business friends on a hunting trip in Maine. As dusk began to set in, their guide seemed downright lost. The industrialist took him aside and, in a burst of pure fury, said, “You told me you knew every square inch of the Maine woods.” “I do,” shot back the guide, “But I think we’re in Canada now!”

When’s the last time a political figure drew such volcanic excoriation from left and right? Sen. Joe McCarthy drew it from the left. Sen. George McGovern drew it from the right. The hostility pattern that forms around Sen. Ted Cruz is rare, if not unique. It’s almost as if there’s a secret treaty among beltway insiders that deals with crowd-pleasing upstarts like Ted Cruz.

In World War II, Finland was a “co-belligerent” of Nazi Germany. They rejected the tern “ally” because Finland was a democracy and they despised the Nazis. However, Hitler’s attack on the Soviet Union offered Finland the chance to reclaim land taken from them by the Soviet Union in the Winter War of 1939. As the sprawling convoys of Allied ships left England headed across the northern tip of Norway for the Russian ports of Archangel and Murmansk, one ship would peel away from the formation and head south for the Finnish port of Petsamo to unload American jeeps, tanks, tires, raincoats etc. for the Finnish Army that was fighting our ally, the Russians. In return, the Finns agreed not to cut the far northern Russian rail links from those northern Russian ports and not to allow their German “co-belligerents” to cut them, either.

I’d be willing to bet what I normally bet on the Super Bowl that our ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t know about that secret treaty!

What kind of secret treaty do I suspect surrounds Sen. Ted Cruz? Whenever somebody so appealing and so brilliant so suddenly erupts into political stardom, one-and-all inside the beltway agree to join forces – far left to far right – to ensure that this unexpected and uninvited upstart is destroyed.



And what is there to fear? A superstar emerging on the right who has mobilized his stardom only to fight Obamacare! Is that really cause for national fear plus hatred? I fully understand decent people who perpetually fear successful right-wing extremists. The story of Hitler keeps coming to mind. This is precisely where Sen. Cruz’s trajectory calls upon us to use some intelligence of our own. Yes, there was a Hitler. We are properly alerted to the danger of a demagogue sweeping aside all opposition and raking in all the political chips on the table. But look at how other political superstars turned out. Mustafa Kemal in Turkey after World War I ripped his time-trapped Islamic nation from its “prison,” brought it into Western civilization and the modern era, even changing the alphabet from Arabic to Roman, and positioned the army as the guardian of a secularized democracy.

Look at Poland’s Lech Walesa; Czechoslovakia’s Vlacav [sic] Havel. Much to praise, nothing to fear.



In the beginning there were two kinds of monkeys – those who took a chance and those who didn’t.

And those who didn’t are still up in trees making faces at those who did.

Klingenschmitt: Transgender CO Student Is Visually 'Raping' Girls By Using The Locker Room

As Brian noted earlier this week, the Religious Right has been promoting claims made by the Pacific Justice Institute about a transgender student in a Colorado high school who had supposedly been harassing other girls in the locker room and restrooms.

In reality, there was no harassment, as the entire story originated with the fact that PJI considers the mere presence of a transgender girl to be "inherently intimidating and harassing."

Today, on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt discussed the topic where, in addition to predictably blaming it on a "demonic spirit," he accused this transgender student of "raping, at least visually, these teenage girls" by sharing a locker room with them:
