'You're Talking Crazy Sir, With All Due Respect': A Look Inside The GOP Civil War

Late last month, Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt and Andrew Mangione of the Association of Mature American Citizens gave us an interesting peak into the internal fighting within the GOP.

In a May 31 conversation on Pratt’s Gun Owners Radio Hour, the two conservative activists agreed on many things — including a visceral hatred of the Affordable Care Act and a fear that President Obama will send “goon squads” after people who fail to report gun ownership to their insurance companies. (Mangione’s group was founded as a conservative alternative to the AARP after the AARP got behind the health care reform).

But things got contentious when Pratt brought up his frequently-expressed anger at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who he thinks hasn’t done enough to obstruct President Obama , and declared, “If I lived in Kentucky, I’ll tell you right now, I’d vote for the liberal Democrat just to get rid of Mitch McConnell out of leadership in the Republican Party, where he does so much damage,” adding, “he is poison, pure and simple.”

Mangione, aghast, responded, “So you’d rather lose the seat than have a Republican, regardless of how pure he is on the conservative scale.”

“You’d rather have the seat go to a Democrat, you’d rather give the seat to the people who brought you Obamacare because of your personal dislike of this Republican?” he continued. “That’s why we got Obamacare, that’s why we got another four years of Obama. You’re talking crazy, sir, with all due respect.”

Pratt responded that “Mitch McConnell is the reason we got Obamacare,” to which Mangione replied that McConnell successfully denied health care reform a single Republican vote in the Senate and gave the GOP an election issue that has lasted for years.

God Has Instructed Rafael Cruz To Mobilize Pastors To Vote

Rafael Cruz was the guest on James Robison's "Life Today" broadcast recently where he revealed that God told him that it was his mission to mobilize pastors to get involved in politics in order to save America and, to do so, God has been setting up opportunities for him to speak to groups of pastors all over the country ahead of the midterm elections.

"Without my moving a finger," Cruz revealed, "miraculously, God began to set up pastor conferences all over this country. Last year I did 11 pastor conferences; this year I'll probably do at least 30."

"The word of God tells us: When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice; when the wicked rule people mourn," he continued. "And there has been a lot of mourning in America in the last five years."

But Cruz is optimistic that he and the Religious Right will be able to "mobilize millions of Christians" just as they did in 1980 and "restore righteousness and the Word of God to this country":

Tom DeLay Hails Eric Cantor's Loss As A Victory For Christian 'Spiritual Revival'

Former GOP House Majority Leader Tom DeLay is praising the primary defeat of Rep. Eric Cantor, who before becoming majority leader himself was involved in one of DeLay’s casino gambling campaign financing schemes, as a victory for a Christian revolution.

DeLay told the Washington Times’ Andy Parks today that far-right challenger David Brat’s victory was a “spiritual revival” and a sign that pastors and “a lot of Christians that had never been elections before got involved” in politics.

“I’m not trying to be arrogant or a know-it-all but this is what I’ve been calling for well over a year now: spiritual revival and a revolution for the Constitution. I saw this as a manifestation of that,” DeLay said. “As I travel around the country what I hear from people, particularly Christians, is that they want to bring God back into the public arena, they want a revolution for the Constitution, they want constitutional government and they have a huge thirst for leadership.”

DeLay also described Cantor’s defeat as a loss for the progressive movement and the separation of church and state. Cantor, the only Jewish Republican in Congress, was actually a reliable Religious Right ally.

“People of faith are standing up now and they’re saying no more, enough is enough, we’re going to fight for what we believe in, we’re going to fight for our Christian — Judeo-Christian — values and we’re not going to take it anymore,” DeLay told Parks. “We need to defeat those who want to get God out of the [public] square and it’s happening, it happened last night with the Brat-Cantor race.”

BarbWire Exposes The 'Trinity Of Evil': 'Satanism, Sodomy-Based 'Marriage' And Infanticide'

BarbWire senior editor Jeff Allen was delighted to read a recent LifeSiteNews article about Lucien Greaves, the “national spokesman for the Satanic Temple,” who apparently supports both abortion rights and LGBT equality.

This, for Allen, is definitive proof of the “insidious trinity of evil: Satanism, sodomy-based ‘marriage,’ and infanticide.”

“Since Satanism has often been tied to the glorification of death and sexually deviant behavior, this evil effort should really come as no surprise,” Allen observes. “In fact, Greaves has merely revealed what we’ve known all along — Satanism, sodomy, and slaughter are each part of the Devil’s sinister agenda to destroy America.”

For obvious reasons, many in the pro-abortion and homosexual movements will adamantly deny their unmistakable connection to the demonic forces that are assaulting the moral foundations of our country. However, they have recently acquired a new ally in the national spokesman for the Satanic Temple, who not only recognizes the commonality of their corrupt cause, but has also pledged to join them in their fight to promote baby dismemberment and sexual deviancy. It’s an insidious trinity of evil: Satanism, sodomy-based “marriage,” and infanticide.

In a recent interview with Detroit’s Metro Times, Lucien Greaves (aka Doug Mesner) stated that he plans to help women defy pro-life abortion restrictions by encouraging them to identify such laws as a violation of their satanic religious beliefs. Greaves also accurately identified same-sex “marriage” as a satanic “sacrament.”

According to LifeSiteNew, Greaves has expressed his extreme displeasure with some newly-enacted Michigan laws that have placed common sense limitations on baby butcher shops, and he has brazenly vowed to provide his satanic support to the radical Leftist culture of death.

In July of last year, Greaves went to the Magnolia Cemetery in Meridian, Mississippi and performed a “Pink Mass” over the tombstone of Catherine Idalette Johnston, the mother of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps Jr. The satanic ritual was supposedly devised to turn her straight spirit into a lesbian. As a result of this ridiculous stunt, Greaves was charged with desecrating a cemetery. Apparently, the Satanic Temple has some kind of strange fixation with homosexuality and it’s demonic origins.

Greaves has stated that the Satanic Temple’s next goal is to hire lobbyists in Washington, D.C. to promote abortion and the normalization of homosexuality. Since Satanism has often been tied to the glorification of death and sexually deviant behavior, this evil effort should really come as no surprise. In fact, Greaves has merely revealed what we’ve known all along — Satanism, sodomy, and slaughter are each part of the Devil’s sinister agenda to destroy America.

In keeping with the theme, BarbWire also published a piece today by columnist Lee Duigon, titled, “Forced ‘Sensitivity Training’: The Murder Of A Soul,” in which he argues that officials enforcing nondiscrimination laws are “Satan’s servants.”

Satan’s servants in Colorado, aka the Colorado “Civil Rights” Division, have ordered a Christian baker–and his employees, including his 87-year-old mother!–to undergo “sensitivity training” until they are pronounced “rehabilitated” from their belief that same-sex imitation marriage is a sin. For two years, they will be on parole, and required to report to the servants of Satan at regular intervals to prove their minds are right.

As is true of every country in this fallen world, there have been plenty of evil things done in America. But now, for the first time, we see tyranny and wickedness reaching out past the body and grabbing for the soul.

If they can re-arrange your conscience, and order your mind as they please, are you even you anymore?

For virtually the entire time the human race has been on earth, in virtually every nook and cranny of the inhabited globe, people have believed homosexuality to be unnatural and immoral. The teaching of the Bible is crystal clear–this behavior is a grave sin, hateful to God.

Now this view, not only handed down by God, but ancient and universal, has been declared wrong and hateful and punishable by persons for whom no language I can think of would be harsh enough. Now a Christian who owns a business, and peaceably lives among his fellows, can and will be persecuted unless he takes an active part in a grotesque parody of marriage that he is convinced is a mortal sin. The triumphant forces of Organized Sodomy, with the State as its strong-arm man, offer the Christian a choice: either you bow to us and disobey God and betray your own soul, or we will destroy your livelihood and make your life a hell on earth.

True The Vote Claims Voting Rights Act Encourages 'Race-Based Segregation'

In a fundraising email today, the voter-fraud mavens at True the Vote claim that a proposed bipartisan update to the Voting Rights Act is in fact a “move toward race-based segregation” that would “exclude millions of Americans from the full protection of the law — based solely on the color of their skin" and “turn our elections over to Eric Holder and Barack Obama.”

The Voting Rights Amendment Act is a bipartisan bill that would replace the formula that determines which areas are subject to Justice Department preclearance for changes in their voting laws. The previous formula was struck down by the Supreme Court last year, although the rest of the law remained.

The proposed formula, like its predecessor, would require states and counties with a history of voting restrictions targeting minority voters to obtain preclearance from the Justice Department before changing their voting laws. The preclearance provision, enacted to stop rampant Jim-Crow-era racial discrimination at the polls has for decades helped stem attempts to disenfranchise minority voters.

But according to True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht, the very fact that the Voting Rights Act and the proposed coverage update are meant to stop racial discrimination at the polls means that they are the product of “race baiters” who want to “divide voters into color blocks for partisan gain” and “move toward race-based segregation.”

I'm sending you this message on the most urgent of topics!

Congress is considering a bill that could ultimately turn our elections over to Eric Holder and Barack Obama.

The bill is HR 3899. Bill sponsors have named it the Voting Rights Amendment Act, but we’re calling it what it really is- the Voting Rights Segregation Act. If it is not stopped, HR 3899 will fundamentally and intentionally change American elections into race-reliant battlefields where, for the first time in our history, the United States would EXCLUDE millions of Americans from the full protection of the law – based solely on the color of their skin.

HR 3899 also targets five states that will immediately be put under the authority of Holder’s Dept of Justice, requiring that they pre-clear election activities with Holder’s DOJ, effective immediately upon passage of the bill! The currently targeted states are Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia and North Carolina. The Bill also gives Eric Holder the exclusive right to target other states for any reason he sees fit, including the passage and implementation of photo Voter ID laws.

This Country has gone through too much and come too far to now watch silently as the professional race baiters in Congress, like Reps. Jim Sensenbrenner and Sheila Jackson Lee, divide voters into color blocks for partisan gain.

Will you please help support True the Vote's effort to kill this terrible race based bill?

Earlier this week True the Vote led a group of pro-liberty election integrity organizations in requesting GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to meet with our organizations to discuss the reasons this bill is an ill advised move toward race-based segregation. Last night, Cantor's constituents let him know what they thought of his position on HR 3899- by voting him out of office. But make no mistake, the battle for HR 3899 is far from won.

South Carolina GOP House Nominee Makes Birther Joke, Questions Obama's 'Lineage'

The newly-elected Republican nominee to challenge Rep. Jim Clyburn in South Carolina played into the birther conspiracy theory in a speech to a Tea Party rally last year.

Anthony Culler, who won the Republican primary in South Carolina’s sixth congressional district last night, told the crowd at the February 2013 “Day of Resistance” rally that bipartisan gun background check legislation is a “Trojan horse” for the government to “target you.”

He then threw in a birther joke: “How is it that on every single shooting they track back the lineage of that gun better than you can Barack Obama?”

Cullen, a self-described “gun nut” holds strong social conservative positions, including opposition to abortion rights and “sinful ‘alternative’ lifestyles” and blames Clyburn for keeping his constituents “ shackled in the chains of poverty.” In a recent Facebook post, he wrote, “Ever notice how non-Christians believe Christians and our values should not be allowed in politics and government but we are to be open-minded to their un-Godly beliefs? (And to think polite Christians actually fall for this stupid and illogical double standard and stand down.)”

Interestingly, Cullen his bucked his party by vowing to vote against any entitlement cuts.

He and his family previously made news by protesting their bank over disputed mineral rights, leading to their eviction and seizure of their property.

Clyburn has handily won all of his recent reelection bids in the heavily Democratic, majority African American district, something that Culler might not be able to change if he keeps on making birther jokes.

David Brat Says Liberals Are 'Nervous' About Countries 'Feeding Their People,' Claims Win 'Came Straight Out Of Heaven'

Glenn Beck, who only recently began promoting economics professor David Brat’s primary campaign against Eric Cantor, hosted Brat on his radio show today to discuss his unexpected victory and purported media attacks.

After insisting that he is not a far-right candidate since he is part of the “compassionate party,” Brat said that progressives are getting worried about falling hunger in developing countries: “China and India are feeding their people in the first time in human history due to free markets and the left knows that and it gets them nervous.”

In another interview with American Family Association radio host Dan Celia, who said his win was the work of God and conservative talk radio hosts, Brat claimed his victory “came straight out of Heaven.”

He similarly told Fox News that “God acted through people on my behalf” in his primary victory.

Huelskamp's Republican Challenger Blasted For Having Appeared In 'Homosexual Movie'

Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas is facing two challengers in the Republican primary in August, one of whom has now come under attack by anti-gay activists in the state for having appeared in a "homosexual movie" filmed several years ago that was written and directed by a friend of his.

Alan LaPolice, who is challenging Huelskamp for the seat representing Kansas' First District, had a small role in a movie entitled "The Art of Being Straight" for which he is now being criticized by Religious Right activists:

Congressional candidate Alan LaPolice’s appearance in the movie “The Art of Being Straight,” has become an issue in his primary race against U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler/Hutchinson.

“I am very concerned that a candidate for national office would be so out of touch with the deeply held beliefs of a great many Kansans,” said Dennis Blick, chairman of the board for Kansas Family Policy Council, Wichita.

“KFPC believes Kansans deserve candidates of the highest integrity committed to traditional Judeo-Christian values, which have been the bedrock of rural Kansas communities for generations,” Blick said in a press release Tuesday from the KFPC.

Phillip Cosby, director of the American Family Association of Kansas and Missouri, said in the release that it’s “highly inappropriate” to be “featured in a homosexual movie.”

LaPolice was an actor but principally an educator in California before moving back to Clyde last year. He told The News recently he said yes to a friend and appeared in the friend’s movie that was shot around 2006. LaPolice played a character he described as a homophobic bigot.

For this part, LaPolice insists that he is a practicing Catholic who is "happily married with three beautiful daughters" who only appeared in the film as a favor to a friend. LaPolice says his scene lasted less than a minute and asserts that "anyone attempting to undermine my candidacy by fixating on a very small movie role from nearly 10 years ago would be guilty of small-minded bigotry."

LaPolice can be seen briefly around the :25 mark of this trailer for the film:
