Right Wing Round-Up - 2/24/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 2/24/15

  • Phyllis Schlafly says yet again that there are "too many girls" in college and calls for "a quota on college admissions, requiring admissions officers to admit half guys and half girls."
  • President Obama has vetoed the Keystone pipeline.
  • David Lane declares that "we have allowed a holocaust in America and the government is defiling God's design for our sexuality."
  • Bill Muehlenberg is not happy with all these "reprobates" who "celebrate the very things our holy God despises and calls an abomination ... They are rebelling against God, and effectively spitting in his face as they declare that they know better than God in regards to all things sexual."
  • William Sullivan knows that "Obama is clearly a communist ... And yes, if you choose to deny that fact, you are ignorant and, willfully or not, complicit in its ramifications."
  • Finally, Peter LaBarbera is outraged by the appointment of this nation's first international envoy for gay rights: "The Shining City on a Hill which Reagan invoked has turned into a Smog-covered Slum spreading moral pollution under Obama. And his shame becomes our shame until we, the citizens of this once-great nation."

Michael Savage: Transgender Rights Will Destroy Society, Outlaw Reassignment Surgery

On Friday, Michael Savage was infuriated by a Hollywood Reporter interview in which director Michael Cimino denied rumors that he is transgender, which led Savage on a rant about “tranny grannies” and why sex reassignment surgery should be outlawed.

“What is this, upstaging the other guy who is simply gay?” Savaged wondered. “This is how crazy this is becoming. It’s not cool enough now just to be gay and have a husband as a gay man, now you have to be a transsexual who cuts your schmendrick off and becomes a woman. I really don’t following this, it’s insanity. It’s the meltdown of an entire society, it’s insane.”

“Why would you want to be a woman when there’s no sex anyway so what’s the difference?” he continued. “Why are all of these Hollywood guys suddenly wanting to be a woman? Most women don’t want to be women after a certain age.”

Savage pointed to the movie “Psycho” as a reason why we should turn against transgender rights: “Didn’t you remember that Hitchcock did years ago with the grandma, with the clothing and the hill, ‘Psycho,’ with the knife in the shower? That wasn’t enough to scare anyone from wanting to — I don’t get this, I just don’t get this. I guess I’m not part of the new America, I just don’t understand this absurdity.”

He added that like female genital mutilation, “these sex change operations [are] male genital mutilation. To me it’s crazy and it should be outlawed.” 

Fischer: RWW Is 'Almost Frothing At The Mouth' Over AFA's Useless 'Bigotry Map'

Earlier today, we noted that the American Family Association had released its own anti-Christian "bigotry map" in response to having been designated as an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center several years ago.

The usefulness of the AFA's map is debatable, since is seems to just blindly designate every gay, secular, atheist, or humanist group as a bigoted anti-Christian organization without providing any actual evidence to support such a designation.

Nonetheless, the AFA's Bryan Fischer thinks the new map is a game-changer, crowing in a typically clueless fashion on his radio program today that the key difference between the SPLC designating the AFA as a hate group and the AFA labeling everyone else as anti-Christian bigots is that the allegation that the AFA is a hate group is false while the AFA's designation is true.

"They falsely accuse of us hate," he cogently explained, "but we accurately and truly accuse these groups of anti-Christian bigotry."

To make things even more absurd, Fischer then proceeded to accuse us at Right Wing Watch of being "apoplectic" and "almost frothing at the mouth" over the AFA's useless new map:

Michele Bachmann Links ISIS To December Shooting Of NYPD Officers

Recently, when the Somalia-based terrorist organization al-Shabab released a video calling for attacks on shopping malls located around the world, including Minnesota's Mall of America, the U.S. government responded by assuring the public that "no credible or specific evidence" exists that any such attack is in the works.

But former Rep. Michele Bachmann is not buying it, telling Newsmax host Steve Malzberg today that the call for an attack itself constitutes a credible threat, claiming that the shooting of two New York City police officers back in December was carried out in response to a similar call put forth by ISIS.

The government's reaction to the latest threat, Bachmann said, "is an absolutely apathetic, clueless response."

"The video from al-Shabab," she said, "that's the credible threat because that message is being sent to sympathizers to light a match and take action and actually have something happen at Mall of America. Don't forget, last fall, there was a call from terrorists for those who couldn't come to the Islamic State in Syria to join the jihad to take jihadist actions locally and that's when we saw that attacks in Canada, at the Parliament and also against government figures, and we also saw two police officers innocently killed in Brooklyn. That was in direct response to a call to take action":

There is no evidence that Ismaaiyl Brinsley, the man who murdered the two NYPD officers, was inspired by ISIS. Not surprisingly, the theory that he was inspired by ISIS seems to have originated from Alex Jones' InfoWars website.

Right-Wing Pastor: Satan Behind Evolution

Rick Wiles invited conservative pastor Laurence White onto “Trunews” yesterday to answer the question: “Is America repeating Germany’s path into Nazism?”

Unsurprisingly, the two agreed that America is moving in the direction of Nazi Germany, which they blamed in part on pastors who do not vocally denounce abortion rights, marriage equality and evolution, which White said is “not science but religion.”

White said questions posed to politicians like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker about whether they believe in evolution come straight from Satan: “They’re trying to make conservative, Bible-believing candidates look foolish because the Devil is the Father of Lies and he’s good at it.”

Pastors, according to White, must “lead our people to be able to discern what is actually going on in this country, that collision of two religions: one pagan, one Christian. And until they recognize that, they’re not going to understand the nature of the spiritual warfare in which we are engaged.”

Sandy Rios: Preserving Net Neutrality Will 'Stop The Flow Of Information To The American People'

Sandy Rios, the American Family Association’s governmental affairs director, is very concerned that if the Federal Communications Commission approves rules intended to preserve net neutrality, then the Obama administration will move in to monitor online content.

Like other conservatives who have criticized the proposed rules , Rios doesn’t seem to grasp the meaning of net neutrality, but that didn’t stop her from accusing the administration of using the internet proposal as part of a plan to “take down” Fox News and “go after” Rush Limbaugh.

“They want to manage the content, they want to control what goes into the internet,” Rios said. “Thank God for the internet, thank God for our ability to communicate to you through our Facebook pages and through AFA and our alerts and everything. And this all is being threatened.”

What Rios lacked in an understanding of net neutrality she made up in a strong, personal feeling that the Obama administration will crack down on free speech: “Certainly we know that the president and the administration is willing to do whatever they can to stop the flow of information to the American people, we know that that’s true.”

Glenn Beck Seems To Think That Non-Discrimination Laws Are 'The Work Of Satan'

Outraged that right-wing Christian business owners are facing the possibility of fines for refusing to serve gay customers rather than being allowed to freely discriminate in the name of religious freedom, Glenn Beck said on his radio show today that not allowing Christians to engage in discrimination is "the work of Satan."

"I can't change my religious point of view. I can't. Especially by force. I won't by force," Beck said, before declaring that "the Left just doesn't understand religion at all," which is why liberals refuse to admit that radical Islamic terrorism is rooted in religion and won't honor the right of Christians in America to engage in anti-gay discrimination.

"They want to shut Christians down," he said. "What is this, except the work of Satan?"

GOP Rep: Obama Treats 'Americans, Republicans, Conservatives, Christians' As A Greater Threat Than Islamist Terrorists

Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, appeared on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch” to address a recent Department of Homeland Security report that right-wing sovereign citizensare responsible for at least two dozen violent attacks in the U.S. over the last several years. 

As Media Matters points out, such sovereign citizen attacks come as incidents of far-right violence, such as shootings at a Kansas City Jewish community center and a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, are on the rise. But Poe was having none of it, and joined Perkins in suggesting that the Obama administration is simply fabricating the evidence of far-right violence, and accusing Obama of referring to conservatives and Christians as terrorists.

“They’re not credible,” Poe said. “The idea that Americans who are conservatives, that disagree with the president, are just as threatening as ISIS, whose whole existence is to kill us in the name of their religion, even though the president won’t say ‘Islamic terrorists,’ he’ll call people on the Right terrorists, is nonsense, it is just utter nonsense. There is no evidence of anything like that and once again more fear tactics out of the administration.”

“It’s concerning to us because of the, in my opinion, how the president so meekly addresses Islamic radical terrorists who want to kill us in the name of their religion, in how he deals with them and yet he’s really quick to call out the Right with absolutely no evidence that they are just as serious threats to our country. It’s very disturbing that the president would take that political position,” Poe said.

When Perkins asked the congressman if he would hold a hearing to ask DHS officials “why they continue to put Americans in their crosshairs,” Poe called it “an excellent idea” and claimed that the administration is “more aggressive toward Americans, Republicans, conservatives, Christians, and concerned about them being threats to the country, which they’re not, than they are about the real threats to our country.”

“It’s mind-boggling why they would be this way, but to answer your question, yes, there will be questions and we will just ask them an obvious one: show us some proof of this situation that they claim that all of these different folks that you mentioned are threats to our country.”

Pat Robertson: Yoga Tricks People Into Speaking 'In Hindu'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson responded to a concerned viewer who feared that ever since her family moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, they have been exposed to “New Age spirituality” such as “dream catchers, yoga [and] veganism,” and wondered whether she should let her daughter take “yoga classes with one of her friends.”

Robertson cautioned that while there is nothing wrong with stretching exercises, “along with yoga they have a mantra, and the mantra you say is in Hindu.”

“You don’t know what the Hindu says, but actually it’s a prayer to a Hindu deity and so it sounds like gibberish. So you’re saying ‘kali, kali, kali,’ but you’re praying to a Hindu deity and you don’t want your daughter in that,” Robertson said. “Stretching exercise is cool, praying to a Hindu deity is not too cool.”
