Right Wing Leftovers - 5/12/14

  • After being dumped by HGTV, the Benham brothers has reportedly had their reality show picked up by INSP TV.
  • Liberty Counsel and Voice of the Voiceless are pushing ex-gay materials on colleges in Virginia.
  • Peter LaBarbera is threatening to sue Salon.com for libel.
  • Frank Turek says the push for marriage equality is "stealing rights from God."
  • Finally, Stu Burguiere claims that we intentionally misrepresented Glenn Beck's recent comments about Hillary Clinton because we "hate Glenn," even though we fully explained the context in the post in which the video was used. But if Burguiere is genuinely concerned about people taking things out of context, he ought to discuss that with his boss.

Peter LaBarbera Censors Michael Sam Kiss, Claims Sam Will Help Destroy Civilization

Peter LaBarbera is incensed that he had to see a picture of Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after he learned that he would be drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

LaBarbera censored the picture on the homepage of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, explaining that “AFTAH will block homosexual kisses because they are indecent and teach impressionable youth that perversion is OK.”

Like other anti-gay activists, he criticized Sam and warned he “could lead many young men astray by popularizing a grievous sin” and push American culture “willy-nilly into godlessness and sexual/gender chaos. But no civilization that glories in sexual immorality will survive in the long run.”

LaBarbera previously called Sam “deluded” and prayed he would “become an ex-gay.”

Don Jones did NOTHING wrong for calling this sinful act “horrible.”
...

Please pray for this lost soul, Michael Sam, who could lead many young men astray by popularizing a grievous sin. It is tragic that the establishment power structure–media, Hollywood, academia, the corporate world–now reward those who embrace homosexuality, and punish those who oppose it. The very opposite of anti-sodomy laws, huh? Yes, America is now, morally speaking, an upside-down culture–descending willy-nilly into godlessness and sexual/gender chaos. But no civilization that glories in sexual immorality will survive in the long run.

Christians and those who haven’t yet drunk the “gay” kool-aid need to boldly proclaim the politically incorrect truths surrounding this issue: the fact that many men and women have left homosexuality behind (ex-”gays”); the very real threat that “gay rights” activism poses to our First Amendment and religious freedoms; and the stunningly disproportionate link between homosexual practice and disease–e.g., a new CDC report documenting that a whopping 84 percent of primary and secondary male syphilis cases now are tied to homosexual sex.

Sounds to me like a behavior that ought to be discouraged, not celebrated. God bless.

Starbucks Ruined Peter LaBarbera's Mother's Day With 'Alphabetic Homoerotic Embrace'

Peter LaBarbera said today that his Mother’s Day was ruined by the sight of “snuggling Starbucks lesbians” in an ad the coffee company put out to mark the holiday.

The Americans for Truth about Homosexuality president was angry that the ad not only included a “deviant and immoral” lesbian couple but also featured what he considered to be “an alphabetic homoerotic embrace.”

LaBarbera lamented that a boycott of the coffee chain, championed by anti-gay groups including the National Organization for Marriage and the Family Research Council, has grown “anemic” and called for a new pressure campaign to reach Starbucks executives who “aren’t acting like they fear the consumer power of mobilized religious conservatives.”

For Mother’s Day Starbucks released the commercial below, voiced by Oprah Winfrey and hawking a new “Oprah Chai” tea. The ad celebrates all sorts of moms–including the “two moms are better than one mom”–shown with the affectionate lesbian “moms” at right and the “M’s” in “MOM” in what I suppose is an alphabetic homoerotic embrace. Messages like this no long shock a post-Christian America shaped in part by decadent corporations pandering to the highly organized LGBT lobby. Starbucks already has sold its corporate soul (is that an oxymoron?) to the homosexual agenda. Its executives made that clear in 2012 when they defiantly rebuffed a boycott threat by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and affirmed that support for homosexual “marriage” is a “core” Starbucks value.

The NOM “Dump Starbucks” boycott that followed seems anemic two years later (only 68,200 pledges)–but Starbucks [877-421-9062] remains a plump target for a more effectual and better organized boycott. Let’s face it: finding substitutes for overpriced yuppie coffee is pretty easy. We’ll see what happens, but one thing is certain: Starbucks execs are not backing down in their support of sexual sin and they surely aren’t acting like they fear the consumer power of mobilized religious conservatives.



As for single moms, our hearts go out to the many women who find themselves struggling to provide for their children with no dad in the house. But at least in most cases, single moms did not set out to deny their kids a father–just as single straight dads–unlike homosexual two-”dad” households–did not intentionally create motherless homes. And unlike those snuggling Starbucks lesbians in the ad below, single moms are not modeling deviant and immoral behavior condemned by God to their innocent children.

Sandy Rios Wonders If Feminists Only Care About Nigeria Kidnappings Because They Don't Realize Victims Are Christians

Last week on her radio show, Sandy Rios speculated that the only reason the State Department and feminists care about the kidnappings of hundreds of girls in Nigeria is because they don’t realize that many of the girls targeted by Boko Haram are Christians.

Rios, the American Family Association’s government affairs director, said she was just asking the question about whether feminists would care about the kidnapped girls if they knew about their religion.

The Department of State is offering a reward of up to $7 million leading to [Abubakar Shekau’s] location, of course it’s because he’s kidnapping girls, I guess he did the wrong thing now, it’s not that they’re Christians, it’s that they’re girls, and now the feminists are — I wonder if the feminists know that these girls are Christians because maybe they wouldn’t be so upset. I don’t know. That’s how weird this is getting.

Fischer Blasts The NFL For 'Celebrating Something That Could Destroy Michael Sam's Life'

Bryan Fischer's love for young, black males has been well-established and it is precisely why he wants to see homosexuality made illegal.

It was with this love in mind that Fischer spent two full segments of his radio broadcast today railing against the NFL for celebrating the drafting of Michael Sam instead of putting him into "ex-gay" reparative therapy.

Calling Sam's drafting a "debacle," Fischer proclaimed that the NFL "is conducting itself in a horribly irresponsible fashion" by "celebrating something that could destroy Michael Sam's life."

"They know the kind of behavior that Michael Sam is engaged in," Fischer lamented. "He had a big, wet sloppy kiss with his gay lover right in front of world and everybody ... and it is behavior that will destroy his life."

If the NFL was really concerned with Sam's well-being, Fischer went on the argue, the league would be encouraging him to begin ex-gay therapy.

"Alas, the only people who truly care for Michael Sam are those who love him enough to tell him the truth about the health risks of homosexual behavior," Fischer concluded, saying that the NFL leadership "long ago sold their souls to the virulent, vitriolic bullies and bigots of 'big gay'":

Christian Post Writer Says Extreme Weather Is Not Climate Change, But A Sign Of The End Times

Christian Post blogger Michael Bresciani writes this week that changes in the climate are indeed taking place, but not due to human activities such as fossil fuel emissions. Instead, he says extreme weather is the result of “homosexuality, abortion [and] general sexual preoccupation,” which according to Bresciani is bringing about the End Times and the coming of the Antichrist.

He responds to the release of the National Climate Assessment by arguing that the earth is experiencing the “‘birth pangs’ for a planet about to meet its creator” that comes from “unbridled perversion,” and not “because of global warming or man-made climate change.”

All that the bible reveals about climate changed is part of the pre-millennial prophetic message. It does say that earthquakes and violent storms, fires and other natural disasters will occur with greater intensity and frequency as the ‘last days’ approach, but it clearly says these are ‘birth pangs’ for a planet about to meet its creator. It does not attribute any of these portents to global warming or a man-made global carbon footprint – sorry.

After almost a half of a century spent studying and teaching on the prophecies of the second coming of Christ I can say with absolute confidence that this world does not end because of global warming or man-made climate change. It does not play into the prophecies of the last days at all.

The second coming of Christ is not precipitated by the heating up of the planet, but by the burning desire of men to live in unbridled perversion and sin. The world’s last dictator does not spring on an unsuspecting world just going about its business as usual, he comes on the wings of a new intense penchant for everything perverted, liberal and dehumanizing being accepted across the globe.

Homosexuality, abortion, general sexual preoccupation and sleazy self-serving politics and world governance brings the antichrist to his short lived rule over a reprobate and dying world. Global warming will be the least of our worries.

Sorry Mr. Obama, your facts are fallacy and the subject of climate change is also above your pay grade.

Rick Wiles Points To 'Game Of Thrones' Tweet To Prove Obama Is The Antichrist

Rick Wiles believes that a Game of Thrones-inspired image of President Obama that the White House posted on Twitter as a joke during the White House Correspondents Dinner, is actually a sign of the End Times and Obama’s demonic nature. Wiles, who was once worried that Obama would declare himself God and wondered if a fly landing on the president proved that he is a demon, invited evangelists Augusto Perez and Steve Quayle onto “TruNews” to discuss the tweet on his radio broadcast on Friday.

Perez claimed that the tweet is just a “little side” of “a big dark conspiracy” to bring about “hell on earth,” while Wiles wondered why other evangelists aren’t calling out Obama for clearly being the Antichrist:

If there was a politician who came to power in another nation, a powerful nation, who had Obama’s identification mystery, his same association with the occult, his worship as a deity, his spying and surveillance powers, his war making powers, his persecution of Christians around the world through his policies, if there was another person like that in power in another nation, American Christians would be shouting that that person is the Antichrist, that he has appeared.

Perez linked the tweet to gay rights victories, including the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell:

“All of this weird stuff going on, this image of him seated on a feathered throne, supposedly it’s swords, with a crossbow and what looks like eggs, it’s so weird,” Perez said. “You have to be able to connect the dots. The release of evil that is taking place in recent years, all kinds of things, the legislation that has been passed, corrupting the military on purpose, sodomy, bestiality, homosexuality, things that are meant to demoralize the Armed Forces and demoralize this people, same-sex marriage.”

Wiles then likened Obama to the ancient Assyrian king Sennacherib, saying that “all this man has done has been to bring immorality to the highest level it’s ever been in this country and export it around the world.”

Not to be outdone, Quayle told Wiles that Obama in 2008 accepted the Democratic presidential nomination from “Satan’s throne,” adding: “I want to make it clear, you cannot put ‘Obama’ and ‘nation’ together without coming up with ‘Obamanation.’”

“This guy is a demoniac,” Wiles said.

Rafael Cruz Claims Obama 'Destroyed The Greatness of America,' Wants To Keep People Poor So He Can 'Buy Their Votes'

In an interview with Ginni Thomas posted on the Daily Caller this weekend, Rafael Cruz claimed that President Obama will be remembered as “the worst president” in history and “the man who destroyed the greatness of America.” 

Cruz, the father of Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, told Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, that Obama wants to keep Americans in poverty. “The administration is not concerned about lifting anybody out of poverty," he said. "They want them to continue in dependency so they can buy their votes.”

When Thomas asked Cruz what he thought Obama’s legacy would be, Cruz responded, “I think that he will take Carter’s place as the worst president ever in the United States of America, the man who destroyed the greatness of America.”

“We have a president that does not understand American exceptionalism, does not care about it, and as a matter of fact tries to apologize for it and makes us think that we are no better than any other country,” he claimed.

Fringe, One-Man Anti-Immigrant Group ALIPAC Continues To Garner Mainstream Media Coverage

William Gheen, the chief cook and bottle washer of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), is an extremist activist who warns of a violent revolution if immigration reform passes and thinks immigration reform amounts to “national rape” because it would take the country away from “traditional Americans.” Despite his place on the right-wing fringe, through sheer force of will and frequent press releases, Gheen has managed to position himself as a national leader in the anti-immigrant movement and frequently gets press coverage for his extremist views.

The latest example of this is a Los Angeles Times story today about a state effort to make it easier for undocumented immigrants to obtain professional licenses. As an example of the “outcry of opposition from national conservative groups,” the Times quotes none other than William Gheen:

The proposal, predictably, has divided Republican lawmakers in California and sparked an outcry of opposition from national conservative groups that want tougher enforcement of existing laws against illegal immigration.

"It's insane," said William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee. "By granting licenses to illegal immigrants you both aid and abet illegal immigration, which is a violation of federal law, and you are sending a message to the rest of planet Earth that says, 'Come on!'"

Gheen said his PAC, with 50,000 members, endorses candidates who share the organization's views on immigration.

We have no way of corroborating Gheen’s claim that his group has 50,000 members, but we can be fairly sure that his endorsements don’t carry nearly as much weight as he claims. After all, as we reported last month, Gheen’s PAC hasn’t actually contributed to a federal candidate in four years.

ALIPAC is organized as a political action committee, but according to records on OpenSecrets.org, the group hasn’t contributed to a federal candidate or made an independent expenditure since 2010, when it contributed $2,000 to former congressman J.D. Hayworth’s primary challenge to Sen. John McCain in Arizona, spent another $3,248 in independent expenditures in the race. That year, Gheen’s group also gave small contributions to Tea Party candidates including Sharron Angle in Nevada and Joe Walsh in Illinois. ALIPAC’s spending on behalf of Hayworth’s losing campaign was its most serious election effort since Gheen founded the group in 2004.

In the 2012 election cycle and so far in the current election cycle,most of the organization’s funds have gone toward Gheen’s salary; the rest have been administrative and fundraising expenses, with a few thousand dollars spent on “web ads.”

Gheen’s reports to the FEC give us an idea of who is base is: Among ALIPAC’s largest donors is Elizabeth Van Staaveren, cofounder of Oregonians for Immigration Reform, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as a “ nativist extremist group”; and a handful of anti-immigrant activists who lurk in onlinecomment sections.

Gheen regularly exaggerates ALIPAC’s reach and impact. For instance, despite claiming that his Facebook page reaches 195,000 people and that his “effort to circulate social media pictures of Boehner and Obama together” made all the difference in the immigration debate, the picture in question was shared a whopping 14 times on Facebook.

This is all on top of the fact that Gheen doesn’t exactly come across as a serious policy thinker. He keeps a Pinterest page where he postsracist, homophobic and just plain bizarre images and he started a Facebook page called “Mark zuckerberg sucks.” Gheen’s most recent project was the launch of a weird anti-immigrant “encyclopedia.”

Gheen’s ability to gain press coverage even while running a one-man fringe group is perhaps a sign of the fumes that the anti-immigrant movement is running on. Is there any other national movement in which a figure like Gheen could position himself as a key spokesman?
