Right Wing Leftovers - 8/1/13

  • FRC was praying that God would stop Samantha Power from being confirmed: "May God intervene to prevent Samantha Power from being confirmed to this important office! If not, may He raise up intercessors who will be used of the Lord to restrain her from acting and voting as her past behavior predicts she will." Looks like it didn't work.
  • Gee, what a surprise.  Glenn Beck is changing his position on the use of boycotts.
  • Have you always wished there was a line of stylish clothing available that was also covered in Bible verses? Well, you are in luck.
  • Cindy Jacobs has produced a handy guide for prayer warriors on how to "lay siege to their cities."
  • Is anyone surprised that when the "ex-gay" activists met with members of Congress yesterday, the "Republicans were definitely more sympathetic"?
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer began his show today by declaring that Islam is a "demonic, degraded, dark, devilish religion and we never should contemplate treating it on the same plane as we do Christianity." He then proceeded to interview Republican Senator Roger Wicker.

Hagee: 'People Who Are Educated Cannot Look At Two Men Married And Say That That's Right'

Over the July 4 holiday weekend, Matthew Hagee delivered a sermon in which he attacked the Supreme Court over its DOMA ruling, outraged that, as a result, "newspapers carried cover pages with homosexual couples kissing on the front page, requiring parents to explain to their young children why two people would engage in such behavior."

Hagee went on to warn that there was an attempt underway to undermine faith, family, and education because people of faith know that Supreme Court rulings are only legitimate to the extent to which they agree with the Bible and because "people who are educated cannot look at two men married and say that that's right":

Harvey: Homosexuality Is A Lot Like Overeating

Linda Harvey says gay people aren’t all that different from those who struggle with eating too much and obesity. The Mission America president argues that, like overeating and having unhealthy appetites, homosexuality is not innate and can be unlearned:

Many people struggle with appetites for food that lead to obesity but very few were born with a hormonal imbalance leading to weight gain, almost everyone learned these appetites along the way so unlearning them will also be a step-by-step process but it is most certainly possible, starting with facing the truth. It’s kind of similar with homosexual feelings. But no, the world’s message today is go for it, declare yourself and join the out-and-proud community.

Harvey claims the gay community relies on “feelings, identity and behavior: FIB…. And yes, that’s exactly what homosexuality becomes if acted upon. It’s a big lie.”

Pratt: Obama, Clinton & Holder Using Zimmerman Case to Bring About Communism

Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt went on VCY America’s Crosstalk radio program yesterday to discuss the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. Pratt, whose well-documented ties to White Nationalists got him kicked off Pat Buchanan’s 1996 presidential campaign, eagerly jumped on board the prevalent right-wing theory that President Obama is the real racist for acknowledging the presence of racial discrimination in America.

“I really think the attorney general, as well as the president, are racist, and they look at the world through the prism of race,” he said. The president, the first lady and Hillary Rodham Clinton, he speculated, are in fact trying to exploit the issue of race to “divide people” and cause “turmoil” in order to ultimately “bring collapse to the existing order” and “build their own communist society.”

Pratt did see a glimmer of hope in the Zimmerman trial, however. He expressed surprise that a smaller percentage of African Americans believe Zimmerman was guilty than voted for Obama, which he argues means that “there must have been some pretty impressive evidence indeed to get five percent of those Democrat blacks to move from their normal Democrat default position.” 


I really think the attorney general, as well as the president, are racist, and they look at the world through the prism of race. And it’s also an issue that they like to exploit to keep things stirred up. I’m sure you’ve talked many times about the Marxist theorist Saul Alinsky. And one of his chief points is to seek to divide people so that you can have turmoil, and so that you can bring collapse to the existing order, because it’s the communist view that out of collapse they can then build their own communist society. That’s what Saul Alinsky was all about, that’s what the Obamas are all about, that’s what Hillary Clinton is all about. You know, Hillary wrote her senior thesis on Saul Alinsky. She actually had met him not too long before he died. So, these folks that we’re dealing with at the top of our government are intentionally looking for ways to cause dissention.

And yet, something interesting. Blacks tend to vote Democrat, at least in the national elections, about 92 percent of all the blacks voted Democrat. And yet, only 87 percent thought that Martin was a victim, that he was not the aggressor. You realize that, even though that’s only a five percent difference, there must have been some pretty impressive evidence indeed to get five percent of those Democrat blacks to move from their normal Democrat default position to the 87 percent figure. I frankly took that as encouragement, even though I’d rather not have them 87 percent think Martin is the victim. I think we made some progress in this trial.
 

Beck: We Are On The Verge Of Taking Over The Republican Party

As Glenn Beck has been vacillating between mania and depression over the last several weeks, he has been working to encourage his audience to telling them that they will be the ones who will save America and they are on the cusp of winning, so long as they refuse to give up.

He sought to rally the troops again today on his radio broadcast, telling them that they are now on the verge of completely taking over the Republican Party.

"I don't think people realize," Beck said, "how close you are to winning. Don't you see, in six years we haven't [ever] been this close to taking over taking over the Republican Party ... The next election, you're there":

Trump: I'm A Great Christian Who's Angry the Unemployed 'Get Better Benefits' than People with Jobs

Donald Trump is totally serious this time about maybe running for president, and to prove it he is appearing at The Family Leader’s upcoming conference in Iowa alongside Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, Steve King and Brian Brown. He chatted with conservative talk show host Steve Deace on Tuesday about why Religious Right voters should love the thrice-married casino magnate.

Trump said he is a “pro-life,” “very, very, pro-family” Christian. “I’m a Presbyterian and a good one,” Trump elaborated. “A lot of people ask me about my children, how did you get them so they’re not drinkers and they’re not on drugs and you know lots of good things.”

Plus, he has a “great relationship with the church” and people love him: “Tickets are going at a rate like they’ve never gone before, maybe it’s one of the other candidates but you know what, I doubt it.” “I know some of the people that are candidates and the Republicans are not going to be winning with these people,” Trump continued.

Trump showed off his conservative credentials by making the absurd claim that “people don’t work, they don’t have to work, they get better benefits if they take it easy, which is unfair because the people that are working are paying for that.”

Barack Obama Is The New Mao Zedong

Jerome Corsi and Sandy Rios got together once again yesterday to discuss how the left is destroying America, and the two agreed that President Obama is basically operating like Mao Zedong. Corsi alleged that the left “engineered” the breakdown of the family in order to grow the size of government and increase racial polarization: “This demonizing on race which Obama does, you know Obama is a race divider because it riles up his base, it’s Saul Alinsky.”

“Mao Zedong did that in China,” Rios added. Corsi argued that Obama is stoking racial and class divisions in order to concentrate power and ultimately “crush the middle class and get rid of the press.” “Which is what’s happening,” Rios replied.

Corsi concluded that the left started the NSA surveillance program in order to “crush opposition” and introduce fascism.

Fischer: 'I Have No Hesitation In Saying, Flat Out, President Obama Is Not A Patriot'

Some day, this country will again have a Republican president and when that happens, critics will say things about that president that the Religious Right will find offensive and outrageous and they will throw a fit that anyone would dare to ever show such disrespect to the President of the United States and the office of the presidency.

And on that day, we will just trot out videos of Bryan Fischer declaring that President Obama "has a visceral dislike of America" and wants to see it torn down and utterly destroyed.

"I have no hesitation in saying, flat out, President Obama is not a patriot," Fischer says, "he is not a patriotic American":

Glenn Beck Provides A History Lesson To Reza Aslan

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck dedicated his opening monologue to attacking and "exposing the truth" about Reza Aslan and his new book about Jesus.  Of course, in the end, Beck's exposé was reduced to nothing more than his standard boogeyman of progressivism, the Tides Foundation, and George Soros.

But in the middle of it all was a fascinating segment where Beck took Aslan to task for supposedly not even understanding the Bible or the Gospels. Seizing on a piece Aslan wrote for the Washington Post in which he stated that "the gospels are not, nor were they ever meant to be, a historical documentation of Jesus’ life. These are not eyewitness accounts of Jesus’ words and deeds," Beck smugly declared that "this claim is flat out false."

He then cited the first passage in the Book of Luke, which he apparently believes demonstrably proves Aslan to be wrong:

Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.

Of course, this passage actually reinforces Aslan's point, as even the author of Luke is admitting that he has set out to write an account of event "just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses."  Luke is not an eyewitness account, as the very author admits; or as the "Introduction to the Gospel According to Luke" in the current ESV Study Bible put its: "It is known that the author was from the second generation of the early church, was not an 'eyewitness' of Jesus' ministry (Luke 1:2) and was a Gentile."

To make matters worse, Beck then bizarrely claimed that if a book like the Bible cannot be accurate, according to Aslan, because parts of it were written decades after the events they describe, then how could Aslan's book be trusted when it was written two thousand years after Jesus' death:

As we have said before, this is what happens when you learn your history from David Barton.

Erik Rush: Africa and India Colonized Because Their People Seemed 'Only A Few Steps out of the Trees'

WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush is upset that Americans may appreciate other (read: inferior) cultures, lamenting that it all started when “the Beatles brought East Indian culture to the West.”

Rush asks: “Why in the world ought America be more like India? It was their culture that gave the British the impression they were only a few steps out of the trees, so India was colonized. The same goes for Africa.”

He goes on to explain that it is all part of a communist conspiracy, of course, that seeks to “insidiously break down our sense of national pride” and establish “slavery to elites.”

Still, for many years, I have puzzled over Americans who become inordinately and superficially enamored of foreign things. We’ve all seen the plight of starry-eyed young American girls who fall in love with a mass media-proffered stereotype of some romantic foreign male, then run off and marry one, only to discover that the man’s culture is frighteningly cloying and patriarchal, sometimes dangerously so. They wind up losing their children to a parental kidnap, or having to escape a sadistic family situation in a misogynistic regime somewhere, coming to the heartbreaking realization that their studly beau was only looking for a quality breeding cow.

We’ve also witnessed the fads that have come and gone from overseas – sometimes not going fast enough – having been brought to light by the media or some celebrity du jour. In the 1960s, the Beatles brought East Indian culture to the West, and the ripples of that introduction are still passing through the lives of Americans in the form of yoga and other such pursuits.



Why in the world ought America be more like India? It was their culture that gave the British the impression they were only a few steps out of the trees, so India was colonized. The same goes for Africa. Contrary to the claim of liberals, these things have far less to do with race than they do with culture. Here, it bears mentioning that the British did not have nearly as easy a time with China. One will also note that in recent years, both India and China have prospered by becoming more like America, rather than the reverse.

To be entirely truthful, I would have no qualms with a one-world government, had the world’s leaders determined that the American paradigm represented the most prudent course to take. But global power players have opted for a collectivist thugocracy in which cheap hustlers, decadent old-money deviants and narcissistic elites will rule like princes over us all.

Americans have the right to take a measure of pride and satisfaction in their accomplishments. It’s taken 50 years for America’s enemies to insidiously break down our sense of national pride and pervert those accomplishments into atrocities with their lies, and the collectivist (some would say communist) movement behind it has been under way for nearly a century. Thus, it will take time and monumental effort to reverse this.

But more than that, it will take the will to do so. The enemy is determined, well-entrenched and possesses the will to do things many Americans cannot yet conceptualize. They have shown that they will go to any lengths to fulfill the leftist agenda, so we must be unapologetic in our resolve and practically militant in the delivery of our message.

America’s founders were willing to risk death to break free from slavery to elites. How many are willing to take the same risk now to prevent us from slipping back into it?
