Ted Nugent Blames CT Shooting on 'Politically Correct Culture'

After attacking Bob Costas for criticizing America’s gun culture, Ted Nugent is blaming America’s purportedly “politically correct culture” for the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. In an op-ed for the far-right Washington Times, Nugent said that the shooting occurred because of the country’s “’anything goes’ value system” which “vilifies, condemns and mocks traditional societal values and customs at every opportunity.”

Some blabbermouths already are using the Connecticut school massacre to promote their anti-gun agenda even though more gun laws won’t prevent a psychotic from getting a gun and killing us.



Like an iceberg, we only periodically see the psychotic manifestation, the tip of our shattered culture, but what lies just beneath the surface is a gigantic cultural cancer that is rotting America from within.

The ugly and dangerous truth is that we live in an embarrassing, politically correct culture that exalts and rejoices in the bizarre; aggressively promotes an “anything goes” value system; and vilifies, condemns and mocks traditional societal values and customs at every opportunity.

We’ve embraced a culture of contempt that attacks the very institutions that make for a healthy and strong society, and then we’re shocked when it spirals out of control. The only thing I’m shocked about is that anybody is shocked.

More laws and more restrictions won’t fix our culture. The problem we face is much deeper and more insidious. What ails us is a spiritual bankruptcy of cultural values that actually matter. More laws and restrictions can’t cure that.

Until we admit what’s at the heart of the matter, we will continue to put a Band-Aid on gaping wounds and try to convince ourselves we’ve done something meaningful.

As with most things, the cure to this mess begins and ends with the family. Traditional family values have been under siege for decades by our culture of contempt. In the absence of a solid family, the whole thing slowly unravels and rots.

Right Wing Leftovers - 12/18/12

  • Gary Bauer joins other Religious Right activists in blaming the Sandy Hook shooting on abortion rights, evolution and secular government. 
  • Frank Gaffney says conservatives should oppose Chuck Hagel if he nominated to be Secretary of Defense because he has “pro-Islamist views.”
  • Bryan Fischer really wants Rick Perry to run for president again. 
  • Buster Wilson believes liberals are out to murder members of the NRA: “The left will be the ones too [sic] blame if more deaths arise from this twisted logic of hate.”

Conservative Historian Warns Obama and Democrats are 'Much More Radical' than Marxists

Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafy brought on conservative historian Don Critchlow, who wrote a fawning biography of Schlafly, as her guest on Saturday’s Eagle Forum Live to promote his new book, Takeover: How the Left’s Quest for Social Justice Corrupted Liberalism. He told Schlafly that President Obama and today’s Democratic Party have a “more insidious” and “much more radical agenda, actually, than what the old communists were talking about,” as they plan to take away “real rights” and “control the way we live.”

Schlafly: When Barack Obama was running for President he bragged, he said that he wanted to ‘fundamentally transform America,’ what do you think he really wants to transform?

Critchlow: I think he wants to transform the way Americans live. I think what this transformation is is a clear cut agenda to extend the federal government into all parts of our lives. What’s happened, Phyllis, is that we’ve seen the steady erosion of real rights in America today. This is a very insidious agenda that has been imposed upon us and too many Americans are going along with it.



Critchlow: I think the takeover of the Democratic Party, the new progressives were not communists per se. The old communists, the old Marxists were concerned with issues of production. This is a much more radical agenda, actually, than what the old communists were talking about. The new progressives want to control consumption. That’s the point of takeover — that they want to control — it’s more insidious because they’re going to control the way we live as opposed to just nationalizing a few industries as the old socialists and communists wanted.

Critchlow also didn’t rebuff one caller’s theory that Obama will soon nationalize pension plans in order to take the money from seniors after the death panels have them killed, saying that government will begin “extending its control over all kinds of things that we just can’t envision.”

Caller: One of the things that President Obama is talking about a lot right now is nationalizing the pension funds, he wants to take over all the private pension funds and have the government control them and I think give the people who should have received their pension funds give them a month annuity instead. I figure this is designed to mesh with Obamacare in the following way: sooner or later somebody getting this money that’s retired will have a medical problem, they’ll need to go see a doctor and when they go see a doctor under Obamacare they’ll be sent to the death panel and the death panel will have them euthanized and ten the government will grab up all their money and have the rest of their money, they will have only gotten tiny bit of the pension money they were saving up for and the government will have all their money. So I wanted to ask if he figures I’m right on my speculation on this point?

Critchlow: Well what we’re going to see in this financial crisis that we’re experiencing, government extending its control over all kinds of things that we just can’t envision. Obamacare is an unaffordable and cockamamie plan that now the Supreme Court has ruled is constitutional. So we’re going to see this full blown agenda being fulfilled as this crisis worsens.

Pastor Compares CT School Massacre to Gay Marriage

Homeschooling activists Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner dedicated today’s Generations Radio program to blaming the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on the public school system (the shooter was homeschooled). Swanson said Americans shouldn’t be shocked by the violence since the country upholds abortion rights, and Buehner said that people should not be surprised the shooting took place if they support other forms of “rebellion against God” like gay marriage.

Swanson: It is interesting that this is probably one of the most shocking experiences; America has been stunned by what happened. I think there is still somewhat of a conscience. There may not be a conscience about killing the unborn children, there may not be as much of a conscience of killing twenty-seven year olds, but apparently when these bodies of little six and seven year olds riddled by bullets are being examined by the experts, hundreds of thousands and millions of people in America are still somewhat stunned, apparently they have some level of moral outrage left for the slaughter of the innocents in Newtown, Connecticut.

Buehner: I think you’re exactly right. The liberals are proposing that we as a nation follow a kinder, gentler flavor of rebellion against God. They’d like a rebellion that stops a little short of murdering kindergartners. They want the rebellion that involves gay marriage; they want the rebellion that embraces rape rap and abortion and a media that is in utter defiance against the law of God. That’s the kind of society they want; they want a society that’s in rebellion but not that much rebellion.

Swanson: Right.

Pastor Takes Credit for 2011 DC Earthquake

In 2011, Texas Gov. Rick Perry partnered with pastor John Benefiel, a self-proclaimed Apostle who leads the Heartland Apostolic Reformation Network, for his The Response prayer rally. Like many of the other pastors promoting The Response, Benefiel has some rather curious views. For example, he claims the Statue of Liberty is a “demonic idol” and that the District of Columbia is under the control of demonic powers. While appearing on Sid Roth’s show It’s Supernatural!, Benefiel argued that the Statue of Freedom on top of the Capitol and the Washington Monument are demonic symbols.

He told Roth that his group went to Washington in 2011 to issue a Baal divorce decree [PDF], which he maintains frees places from control of the demonic god Baal, and that God responded with the August 23rd earthquake which was felt along the east coast. He said the earthquake’s damage to the Washington Monument, the Scottish Rite Temple and the National Cathedral is no coincidence but divine punishment for masonry. “God continues to amaze us all the time,” Benefiel said, “We just did what God says to do and he follows up with this great act.”

Benefiel, who earlier maintained that homosexuality was an Illuminati plot to depopulate the earth, told Roth—after asserting that watching pornography is an act of “Baal worship”—that homosexuality is a result of paganism and Baal’s attempt to “infiltrate our Christianity.”

Barton: 'Show Me That in the Bible and I Will be Concerned About it'

On today's episode of "WallBuilders Live," Rick Green and David Barton interviewed the ALCJ's David French about a piece he wrote following the election entitled "Progressive Evangelicals’ Epic Fail."  The discussion prompted Barton to declare that there really should be no such thing as the Religious Right or the Religious Left, as all Christians should just be "biblical" in their voting ... and since things like health care reform and climate change are not mentioned in the Bible, they shouldn't be things that Christians consider when casting their ballots:

Where does the Bible line up on education? Alright, that's where I am.

Where does the Bible line up on taxation?  Okay, that's where I am.

Where does the Bible line up on social programs? Alright, that's where I am.

And from that standpoint there has been, over the last twelve years particularly, especially every presidential election there's been a lining-up of the Religious Left and the Religious Right.

Religious Left runs in, as they have the last few years, and says 'Christians, you can't be concerned about stuff like life and marriage, you gotta be concerned about climate change, you have to be concerned about health care' and they go through all these things.  And I am concerned about that, if I can find it in the Bible. And that's really what it has to boil down to.

Sometimes we let our cultural positions or our political positions trump our biblical positions.  And that's what the Religious Left has done, saying 'yeah, yeah, yeah, we know the Bible is about life and marriage and those other things, but we're really concerned about global warming and about saving the planet and et cetera and so we want you to be concerned about that too.'

Alright, show me that in the Bible and I will be concerned about it.

Catholic College President Attacks Obama as a 'Clear and Present Danger'

Imagine if a university president released a video on the school’s official YouTube page celebrating President Obama’s re-election and praising his political agenda. Such a video would spark outrage, and right-wing media outlets would attack it as evidence of left-wing academic bias and intimidation of conservative students.

The president of Christendom College, a Virginia-based Roman Catholic institution, did in fact make a clearly partisan post-election video, but he was mourning the re-election of President Obama.

Dr. Timothy O’Donnell said he is “bitterly disappointed” and “discouraged” by Obama’s election victory, calling his administration a “clear and present danger” and warning about the supposed dangers of gay equality and reproductive health:

With this administration there remains a very clear and present danger, so to speak, so much that we hold and cherish as Catholics will be attacked. We’ll see an increased assault on marriage and family life, and those attacks will increase in their intensity. Homosexual relationships will be held up as the new normal and certainly these will be advanced with an even greater passion. Contraception and abortion, the sacraments of the new morality, will be aggressively promoted here in our country, sadly not only here but around the world as well.

O’Donnell urged students to join “this great battle” against the President’s policies and “this present darkness.”

Fischer: Sandy Hook Shooting Proof That America's 'Moral Capital' has Run Out

Bryan Fischer essentially dedicated his entire radio program yesterday to defending the claims he made last Friday that God refused to prevent the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut because he is a "gentleman" who doesn't go where he is not wanted.

Since Fischer absolutely means everything he says, there was no need for him to attempt to apologize for or clarify his original comments in any way, so instead he simply reiterated and expanded upon them, explaining that the shooting was evidence that the reservoir of "moral capital" that this nation had built up by publicly honoring and recognizing God from its founding until 1962 has now been utterly depleted, thus weakening the shield of God's protection and allowing Satan to get through:

Jeffress: Stopping Gay Marriage Must Be Part of U.S. Defense Policy

Televangelist Robert Jeffress used his sermon about Armageddon to argue that America’s defense policy must include banning same-sex marriage, ending abortion rights and weakening the separation of church and state, warning that they will otherwise lead to divine punishment.

Jeffress: I think we ought to have a strong military, but there is absolutely no amount of armaments we could require to protect ourselves against the judgment of almighty God. The best defense policy we could have as a nation, instead of just the acquisition of an endless number of armaments, the best defense policy we could have to protect our nation would be to turn away from ignoring God’s almighty law; to turn away and say no to these things that God has said no to; to turn around and repent from the murder of millions of children in the womb through abortion; to turn away and say no to what God has called an abomination, homosexual marriage; to say no to the continued allowance of God’s named to be blasphemed or be banned from the public square.
