Right Wing Round-Up - 8/13/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 8/13/13

  • It was "Mock Obama Day" on Glenn Beck's radio program.  It was "uproarious."
  • "Karl Rove is a scaredy-cat."
  • John Hagee has apparently dropped his opposition to San Antonio's proposed anti-discrimination ordinance.
  • Randy Thomasson declares that "Jerry Brown and the Democrats have targeted every kid in public school with gender-bending brainwashing. Fortunately, parents can protect their children from the insanity of biological boys in girls' restrooms and girls' showers and biological girls in boys' restrooms and boys' showers by exiting the dysfunctional, immoral public schools for homeschooling and solid church schools."
  • Finally, we wonder what WND's Joseph Farah thinks about the plagiarism practiced by his good friend Chuck Missler.

Beck: It's Been Like Watching Progressives Sneak Into Your Child's Bedroom And Smother Them

Last month we noted that, after having been incredibly despondent about the future of this nation and humanity in general, Glenn Beck was suddenly rejuvenated after attending a Tea Party rally in Washington, DC, only to shortly thereafter fall back into a funk as he despaired that we were on the verge of the End Times.

So, logically, Beck is now back on the upswing these days and transforming himself into something of a self-help guru as he is now urging his audience to follow his lead and change their lives by choosing to accentuate the positive and put their faith in God.

Beck has recently banned all video games in his house and warned his family that if anyone is caught playing them, every electronic device in the house will be tossed into the family swimming pool. It has made a remarkable difference, says Beck, reinforcing his view that the changes he is making in his life will work not only for him, but for the listeners on his program as well.

As such, no longer will he focus only on the things that make him miserable, but rather on the things that bring him joy, because for too long he has felt like someone who had to sit back and watch as people have set about murdering every thing that he holds dear.

"I feel as though I have seen a killer," Beck explained, "that I can identify - the progressive movement - and we have seen them lie their way into our child's bedroom every single night and smother it with a pillow":

Huckabee and Nugent Joke about Hunting Democrats

Mike Huckabee invited NRA board member Ted Nugent onto his radio show today where they kicked off the interview by discussing Nugent’s “mystical, wonderful hunting dog” Gonzo.

“Maybe we ought to turn him loose on some Democrats and see if he can hunt them too,” Huckabee joked, to which Nugent replied: “There’s a lot of varmints out there and I think he would do good pointing [out] varmints and then we can vote them out of office.”

Donnelly: 'Everything We Predicted' About the Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell 'Is Staring To Happen'

During an interview with Janet Parshall, anti-gay activist Elaine Donnelly pointed to a story about a drag performance at an Air Force base as proof that “everything we predicted is starting to happen” about the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Donnelly said that the USO may soon have drag shows and thus creating “social turmoil in the Armed Forces.”

Of course, Donnelly also predicted in 2010 that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell would lead to the reinstatement of the draft.

Bound4Life Hosting Prayer Rally to Sway Eighth Circuit Court to Uphold Anti-Choice Laws

Judges have blocked two laws restricting abortion rights in Arkansas and North Dakota, but the anti-choice group Bound4Life says that through dreams they have received a “divine prayer assignment” to hold a “strategic prayer gathering” in St. Louis, Missouri. The organization’s Red Riders Tour will lead a “silent siege” on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, which is based in St. Louis, to pray that the court will uphold the stringent new laws and “reverse the pollution in the land, which is the shedding of innocent blood.”

Birthers for Ted Cruz

The possible 2016 presidential candidacy of Canadian-born Texas Sen. Ted Cruz presents something of a conundrum for the birthers who have spent the past several years declaring that President Obama was born in Kenya and therefore ineligible for the presidency. While the Congressional Research Service [PDF] and many others hold that Cruz is eligible since his mother is a US citizen, birthers contend that Obama is ineligible to be president since they believe—without any real evidence—that he was born abroad to an American mother.

This weekend, arch-birther Donald Trump tried to avoid a question about Cruz’s eligibility, saying that he wasn’t sure where Cruz was born.

But Lord Christopher Monckton, columnist for the birther “news” site WorldNetDaily, seems to have no qualms about Cruz’s eligibility, writing that he wants to erect a statue of Cruz and can already envision the Texas senator as a successful two-term president:

Ted Cruz is one to watch. And let us not wait until after he has served two spectacular terms as President of the United States before we engage some rising Michelangelo to carve a noble statue of him.

For the newly minted senator from Texas, who has already gotten off to a good start by speaking out against killing little children in their mother’s womb and has proposed to defund ObamachaosTM, now proposes to sweep away the hated, corrupt Infernal Revenue “Service” and replace today’s graduated income tax with a flat-rate tax that is the same for everyone.



Poverty endures solely because the left gain votes from it. Ted Cruz is one of the few politicians in either House of Congress who understand this. And he cares enough to do something about it. That is why he deserves his statue.

Of course, Monckton is a birther. In fact, he wrote an entire report [PDF] alleging that President Obama should and might be removed from office over the issue.

But at the same time, Monckton is perfectly happy with building a Michelangelo-inspired statue of Ted Cruz even before “he has served two spectacular terms as President of the United States.”

Klingenschmitt: Jesus Will 'Strike Down The Sodomites And Throw Them Into Hell'

On the most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt took issue with a threat by a gay couple to sue the Church of England for the right to get married there following the legalization of gay marriage in that country last month.

Klingenschmitt said that even if a court orders the church to allow the ceremony, God will never bless the marriage, saying that "God is going to withhold his blessing from sodomy because God has defined that as sin."

Klingenschmitt went on to add that one day "Jesus will come back and rule. In fact, he'll strike down the judge, he'll strike down the law in Britain, he'll strike down the sodomites and throw them into Hell":

CIS Writer Doubts Latino Families 'Trolling' Capitol Are 'The Ethnic Version of Ozzie and Harriet'

Center for Immigration Studies fellow James R. Edwards Jr. has nothing but scorn for Jim Wallis’ op-ed last week making an evangelical Christian case for immigration reform.

In a CIS blog post yesterday, Edwards mocks Wallis for touting an evangelical pro-immigration lobby day in Washington. Edwards claims that all the evangelical Christians he saw “trolling congressional offices” on the lobby day were Latino, so they may or may not have been “wholesome Christian families” and “the ethnic version of Ozzie and Harriet”:

Jim Wallis, the head of the politically leftist "evangelical" organization Sojourners, has penned an op-ed that the L.A. Times ran. Wallis's op-ed claims biblical "compassion" requires Christian lawmakers to enact amnesty. He liberally employs the term, playing on emotions and sob stories from illegal aliens. He cites a recent Washington fly-in of 300 "evangelical Christians" who met with 110 legislative offices, mostly Republicans.

I happened to spot some of the participants trolling congressional offices that day. All that I saw were Latino, some dragging the elderly and kids along, trying to give the impression of being wholesome Christian families. I have no way to know if they are or are not truly followers of Christ or if they are actually the ethnic version of Ozzie and Harriet. What I do know is that they were part of a larger lobbying campaign that atheist George Soros has helped underwrite. In that regard, they are merely willing political props and favor-seekers, just like every other special interest in Gucci Gulch.

Edwards then puts a Phyllis Schlafly-like spin on the Bible’s message on immigration, suggesting that those who are tempted to extend compassion on undocumented immigrants replace the term in their mind with “robber” or “burglar.”

“Only those who lack a biblical understanding of the boundaries of true compassion that Christ set forth would fall for such an emotion-laden political stunt,” he concludes.

In his op-ed, Wallis quotes Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.):

I think the biggest change hasn't been in the pulpit; it's been in the pews. ... It's one thing when 11 million is a statistic. The other thing is when one of those 11 million is your friend, a human being who you now know ... as a father, as a husband, as a mother, as a worker, as a worshiper. ... Our faith has always been about compassion and it compels you to do something. If you took compassion or the principle of compassion out of the Bible, it would be in tatters because it's all over the place.

Of course, an accurate reading of Scripture is that it puts forth compassion as an individual moral precept, not one incumbent on civil government. Want to prove this? Then substitute "robber" or "burglar" for "11 million" in Rubio's paragraph. The state wields the sword of justice, entrusted to it by God to protect innocent members of its society. In the context of the amnesty question, the innocents the state is charged with protecting are U.S. citizens. The state's trying to operate on the basis of "compassion" as Wallis and his ilk use it results in perverse outcomes, where the innocent are punished.

Sojourners' political propagandists promptly disseminated the opinion piece on Capitol Hill, aiming to convince evangelicals in Congress to buy into the amnesty argument. Only those who lack a biblical understanding of the boundaries of true compassion that Christ set forth would fall for such an emotion-laden political stunt.
 

Gohmert: Obama Stirring up 'Racial Tension and Violence'

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) yesterday maintained that President Obama is stirring up “racial tension and violence” to a point not experienced in decades. While speaking to conservative talk show host Steve Malzberg about the Department of Justice’s drug sentencing reforms, Gohmert agreed with Malzberg’s charge that the new policy was “insane” but added that he was pleased the DOJ acknowledged the decline in violent crime.

“I tell you what though, in that release there was a great statement that I’m glad somebody in this administration finally admitted because they’re constantly screaming about all the hate violence and all of this kind of stuff,” Gohmert said. “Of course we know that this president and this administration has done more to stir up racial tension and violence than any administration since, you know, the sixties. I thought that we were going to have a post-racial president and he’s become the president of division, of envy, of jealousy.”

“They say on the one hand that violence is up and we got to do all these things, violence isn’t up, it’s down,” he continued.
