Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/20/16

  • Some kind words from BarbWire: "Matt Barber should be happy that Right Wing Watch is condemning him and 'Hating Jesus: The American Left’s War on Christianity.' He should wear the hatred as a badge of honor ... That’s why Right Wing Watch, an evil organization, published its diatribe against him ... It’s a waste of time to engage with RWW or refute what it published because there is no point in engaging with evil."
  • Joseph Farah says "the very idea that it is somehow 'healthy' to exhibit any kind of pride in sinful behavior is a delusional, turning biblical truth on its head. And yet that is the queer view of pride."
  • David Kupelian warns that if Hillary Clinton becomes president "powerful forces of rage, revulsion and revenge will be unleashed in American society, and a level of pathology and madness we have never before witnessed will arise" and it will be all her fault.
  • Mike Huckabee and Pat Boone predict that the Bible "may one day be labeled a hate book."
  • Finally, Scott Lively continues his crusade to reclaim the rainbow: "Today, in the cynical, opportunistic style of LGBT activists everywhere, the world’s most powerful nation has asked all the other nations of the world to join in its blasphemy of God by flying the rainbow flag in memory of the 'gay on gay' slaughter at the homosexual Pulse nightclub in Orlando. It is the responsibility of Christians (and Torah-believing Jews) everywhere to speak out against this defilement of God’s rainbow, and to demand that the LGBT movement cease and desist cloaking itself in His flag."

Self-Proclaimed LGBT Hero Donald Trump To Announce Advisory Board Of Anti-LGBT Activists

Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed hero of the LGBT community, is slated to unveil a religious advisory board filled with outspoken opponents of LGBT rights this week, coinciding with his meeting tomorrow with hundreds of Religious Right leaders.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the group is likely to include longtime supporters such as televangelist Paula White, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr., and Southern Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress.

Others expected to join the board include Ralph Reed, who recently introduced Trump at an event hosted by his Faith and Freedom Coalition, Ronnie Floyd and Jack Graham, the current and past presidents of the Southern Baptist Convention, respectively, and Jay Strack of the Orlando-based Student Leadership University.

The choice of these activists as campaign advisers would further undermine Trump’s attempts — bolstered by some in the media — to portray himself as either supportive of gay rights or at least distanced from the GOP’s anti-LGBT politics.

Jeffress, as we’ve noted, “believes that gays and lesbians are ‘perverse’ people who are either pedophiles or likely to abuse children in the future; compared homosexuality to bestiality and called it ‘a miserable lifestyle’; accused gay people of using ‘brainwashing techniques’ to have homosexuality ‘crammed down our throats’; said that gay people ‘are engaged in the most detestable, unclean, abominable acts you can imagine’; predicted that the gay rights movement ‘will pave the way for that future world dictator, the Antichrist’; and labeled homosexuality a ‘filthy practice’ that will lead to the ‘implosion of our country.’”

Floyd, the SBC president, once said that Satan is using the “gay lifestyle” to destroy cultural values and labeled the adoption of children by same-sex couples a “tragedy”:

It appears now that everywhere you look, everything you read and everything you hear is about the gay lifestyle. Satan has taken his tool of homosexuality, a gross and evil sin, and done a con job on the American culture, making it seem like all is okay when you are gay. I hope you are aware that what was once subtle has now turned into the rage of a lion as brazen and threatening as anything in our culture. I must sound the trumpet loud and clear, praying that we do not run in retreat, but march in the truth of God valiantly. This is not a skirmish or a conflict or a disagreement, but it is a war. The war they have declared against our culture has an agenda and we need to be aware of it.



The attack everywhere in our culture is to get you to see the gay lifestyle or gay couples as being the same as you. The agenda is also trying to desensitize you to them, their verbiage and lifestyle. In other words, "if you get use to us you will eventually ignore us or accept us." The bombardment and intentionality is already so great that the desensitization is already occurring. Of course, inclusiveness is their theme song. Their goal is to get themselves included into all of society and its benefits, including benefits economically. As they play the song of "inclusiveness," gay couples are now adopting children. What a tragedy. As each of us desire, the homosexual and lesbian want affirmation and will do whatever it takes to receive it. The love and acceptance they have found in the homosexual community is what lured them there and will keep them there until God intervenes.

Graham, one of Floyd’s predecessors in leading the SBC, has a similar view, telling his congregation recently that “the LBGT [sic] promotes a godless agenda, and now on the backs of many confused and conflicted people, are opening the door, literally, to perversion of all kinds.” Last year, he encouraged civil disobedience to protest the Supreme Court’s landmark marriage equality ruling.

Reed has used his Faith and Freedom Coalition to regularly attack LGBT rights and Falwell’s Liberty University is well-known for its rules against homosexuality and support for anti-gay activism.

Other Trump-backing pastors include Frank Amedia, Trump’s “liaison for Christian policy,” who has described HIV/AIDS as “a disease that comes because of unnatural sex” and said he would be willing to burn to death to resist LGBT rights, and Carl Gallups, a pastor who spoke before Trump at a Florida rally and whose endorsement was touted by Trump’s campaign, who believes, as we recently summarized, that “same-sex marriage will completely destroy society by bringing about economic turmoilsevere persecutionthe ‘enslavement’ of Christians and divine punishment.”

By Refusing To Vote For Trump, Glenn Beck Is Standing Against 'The Entire World,' Just Like Gandhi And Nelson Mandela

Glenn Beck literally spent the first two hours of his radio program today laying out some ridiculous two-chalkboard theory that he crafted over the weekend which he thinks explains all of human history and now offers America one last option for escaping inevitable destruction.

The theory was so convoluted and nonsensical that we're not even going to bother trying to explain it, but part of it involved leaders like Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II and Church of Latter Day Saints president Ezra Taft Benson, whom Beck credited with destroying communism.

Somehow, the discussion of these leaders prompted Beck to reference a piece in Townhall today purporting to offer him a way out of his pledge never to support Donald Trump .

"Sitting at home on your moral high horse and refusing to vote is the comfortable thing to do," the column stated of Beck's refusal to vote for Trump and Beck took great offense to that ... and did so by comparing himself to Reagan and Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

"You have got to be kidding me," Beck said. "You are clueless ... You want the hard road? You stand up when the entire world is against you. That's the hard road! That's the road that Reagan and Thatcher and John Paul took. They took the hard road. That's the road that Nelson Mandela and Gandhi and Martin Luther King took, when the entire world was against them!"

Trump Ally Wayne Allyn Root: Hispanics And Muslims Need To Apologize

Wayne Allyn Root, an activist who has campaigned with Donald Trump and fed him conspiracy theories, demanded last week that American Muslims and Latinos apologize for terrorism and crime, claiming that “if Jews were running over the border and illegally coming into America and they all wanted welfare and some of them turned out to be terrorists,” he would similarly want them barred from the country.

“I’ve never seen any major protest by Muslims in the United States of America, like in Dearborn, Michigan, which is a majority-Muslim city, I’ve never seen anyone apologize for their own people,” Root told Florida talk radio host Joyce Kaufman during a discussion of the recent mass shooting in Orlando. “I happen to be Jewish, Joyce. And if Jews were running over the border and illegally coming into America and they all wanted welfare and some of them turned out to be terrorists, some of them turn out to be drunk drivers murdering people, some of them were just murderers and rapists, I would have no problem saying let’s seal the border, I don’t want any more Israelis coming over the border. None. I can’t take it anymore. I have no problem, I’m not a hypocrite. So even if they were my fellow Jews, it doesn’t matter. I like my fellow Jews if they’re law-abiding.”

“So I don’t understand why there’s no Muslims speaking out,” he said, “I don’t understand why there’s no Hispanics speaking out and saying, ‘By the way, I’m Hispanic, I love Hispanics, I want Donald Trump to love Hispanics, but we need a wall because I want legal Hispanics, not illegal Hispanics.’”

Kaufman, who is of Puerto Rican descent, countered that at least she is speaking out.

Walid Shoebat: The Zika Virus Is 'God's Punishment For Sin'

Writing on his website over the weekend, Walid Shoebat, the supposed ex-terrorist who is now an extremist anti-Muslim and anti-gay activist, declared that the Zika virus is "God’s punishment for sin."

As Shoebat explains it, the world has turned away from God and so God is now "using mosquitos again to punish the world for drugs, promiscuity and faithlessness" in order to "force sinners into repentance":

Just yesterday, the CDC finally admitted we have a very serious problem. It estimates that 25 percent of the population of Puerto Rico will be infected with Zika virus which causes shrinked heads in new-born babies as you see in the photo above.

25% is a huge number.

Is this God’s punishment for sin?

I believe so.

Want biblical evidence do I have for this?

God says throughout the Bible that He can only put up with so much. When God gets angry at times He sends His private armies. In Joel 1-2 it was locusts and in Isaiah 18:1-6 it was mosquitos. Read the verses.

In recent history in the nineteenth century the West finally dealt with the plague of Islam by building massive weapons. God on the other hand pitched in and used locusts to end the Muslim Ottoman plague.

He also used mosquitos to change history when the Americas gained their independence.

Now it seems that He is using mosquitos again to punish the world for drugs, promiscuity and faithlessness.

Most modern Christians have lost touch with the way God operates. They do not understand God and think that He thinks like them. God in the Bible “punishes the fathers upon the children”:

The LORD [is] longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing [the guilty], visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation]. (Numbers 14:18)

It is time people think in reverse and perhaps then they can understand God.

In God’s view such curses to mankind are meant to force sinners into repentance for leaving Him no choice. Most people are oblivious to how God manages sinners. Most modern Christians describe God as an accepting-loving teddy-bear.

He is not.

...

The sexual revolution which took place in the 1960’s and 70’s opened the door to what is known in modern times as causal sex. But when the fear of God doesn’t stop the trend of having sex without attachment and purely for physical satisfaction or indulgence, then God acts.

So God sends the female Aedes aegypti mosquito. The blood-sucking females are responsible for the spread of dangerous diseases such as yellow and dengue fevers, chikungunya and now Zika.

Andrew McCarthy: Orlando Transcripts Redacted Because 'The Government Is Becoming Sharia-Adherent'

Andrew McCarthy, a one-time national security adviser to Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, said today that the Justice Department’s decision to redact parts of a transcript of the Orlando terrorist’s 911 calls in which he states his allegiance to “a person and groups” shows that “the government is becoming Sharia-adherent.”

Attorney General Loretta Lynch has said that portions of the calls were redacted because the administration does not want to “further proclaim this man's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda.”

But McCarthy didn’t buy this explanation, telling Breitbart’s Stephen Bannon today that it’s all part of a plot to suppress the truth on Islamic terrorism, just like the plot to suppress the truth about “what they call ‘climate change’”:

No, it’s clearly that the government is becoming Sharia-adherent. And the left is using the same tactic with respect to law enforcement against radical Islamic extremism as it uses in the area of what they call ‘climate change.’ That is, they have an official version of events which may be part of a counter-universe, but it’s their story and they’re sticking to it, and what they’re trying to do is purge any alternative explanation.

So the administration has the position that violent extremism, which is what they call it, is disconnected from any credible interpretation of Islam, that Islam is singularly a religion of peace and there is to be no other interpretation of it and therefore anything that shows the direct nexus between Islamic doctrine and jihadist terror is to be suppressed.

Bryan Fischer: 'Homosexuals Were At The Core Of Forming The Nazi Party'

On his radio program on Friday, Bryan Fischer took some time out to pat himself on the back for being one of the only people brave enough to admit "the truth" that Adolf Hitler was gay and that "homosexuals helped to form and shape and mold the Nazi party."

The inspiration for this celebration was Jonah Goldberg's appearance on Fox News last week where he asserted that he knows "for a fact that a lot of the founders of the Nazi Party were gays," which Fischer noted is what he has been saying for at least seven years.

Fischer declared that nobody else within the conservative movement has been willing to admit this historical fact because they saw what happened to him when first did so several years back.

"I said that back in 2009, got absolutely hammered, got absolutely blistered," Fischer said, "and I think what happened is people like Jonah Goldberg saw what happened to somebody who was willing to step out and tell the truth about the origins of the Nazi party, that it was rooted in the homosexual movement, homosexual community; it was formed in a gay bar in Munich, most of the officers of the SA, the Stormtroopers, were homosexuals, you had no chance of advancing in the Stormtroopers unless you were a practicing homosexual."

After claiming that the infamous "Night of the Long Knives" was really directed at eliminating Nazi insiders who were about to "out" Hitler to the German public, Fischer declared that he originally made this case back in 2009 and 2010 because the U.S. government was discussing the possible repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

"That was the discussion at the time," Fischer said, "what about homosexuality in the military? And my point was very simple: That's been tried. Nazi Germany tried that. How did that experiment work out?"

Fischer's claims about the Nazis are, of course, entirely untrue.
