We’ve been so amused by Larry Klayman’s recent antics that we almost missed his latest call for armed revolution against President Obama and his “Stalinist power grab,” which he believes will increase “the size and role of ‘his’ anti-white, pro-radical Muslim, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, pro-gay and lesbian, pro-feminist, atheist, pro-illegal immigrant and socialist government and eliminate what few liberties and freedoms we have left.” According to Klayman, Obama is “moving to kill any revolution” against him by preparing “...

On her radio program today, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios read listener responses to her recent interview with anti-gay activist Brian Camenker, who claims that bullying-prevention programs and LGBT-inclusive curricula are ruining American education. Rios praised one email from “Margaret,” who wrote that “basic skills” like reading and writing are being “pushed aside in favor of teaching moral choices and left-wing agenda. It is no wonder American students have fallen so far behind other nations.” Margaret lamented that schools “... MORE

Gun Owners of America president Larry Pratt appeared Tuesday on the Talk to Solomon Show alongside conservative blogger Greg W. Howard, of Twittergate fame, for another chance to spew anti-Obama conspiracy theories. Pratt predicted that President Obama may begin confiscating guns in order to provoke a violent response to justify further oppression, which host Stan Solomon feared would lead to the imprisonment of hundreds of thousands of people. Pratt once again insisted that Obama is acting like King George III, a sentiment with which Solomon concurred, saying, “That will happen... MORE

In a column today, Washington Times writer Jeffrey Kuhner claims that Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent speech about the United States’ failure to confront the reality of climate change really represents a plot to destroy capitalism and America itself. Kuhner claims that the scientific consensus on climate change is really “junk science,” “the greatest hoax of our time” and a fabricated “dark prophecy of an eco-apocalypse.” But why create the hoax in the first place? Kuhner maintains that “the secular left needed a new cause”... MORE

When not warning that President Obama is pushing gun safety laws in order to have Americans “slaughtered by the thousands and the hundreds of thousands,” Alan Keyes usually sticks to issuing dire warnings about gay rights. Today in his column for WorldNetDaily, Keyes claims that if the government repeals laws discriminating against gays and lesbians then it will have to remove laws against rape, incest and pedophilia as well. Today the elitist faction promoters of so-called “homosexual rights” use and abuse the language of rights even though they reject the... MORE

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer is none too pleased about Tim Tebow’s decision to pull out of a speaking engagement at far-right pastor Robert Jeffress’ megachurch, a gig first reported by Right Wing Watch. In his column yesterday, Fischer warned that by pulling out of the speaking engagement, Tebow put his eternal salvation in jeopardy. Fischer piled on in his Focal Point radio program, saying that the Jets backup quarterback is the latest person to cave to the “bigoted bullies at Big Gay.” Fischer lamented that “homosexual... MORE

The Republican Party’s approval rating continues to nose-dive.  Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) warns that gun safety laws will make us more susceptible to Sharia law.  Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) offers some extraordinarily bad logic in his letter asking the Obama administration to withdraw Chuck Hagel’s nomination.  Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman makes the conservative case for marriage equality.  Fox News loves Dr. Benjamin Carson. Denny Burk of the Southern Baptist Convention claims that critics of pastor Robert Jeffress seek “... MORE

Pastor Scott Lively of Defend the Family, who is best known for his anti-gay activism in Uganda, is once again pushing the claim that President Obama is secretly gay. Like fellow conservative activists Jerome Corsi and Vic Eliason, Lively believes that President Obama is covering up his gay past. Today, he finds new “proof” in a Weekly Standard article which notes that Obama went on a weekend trip with his aide Reggie Love over the weekend…without the First Lady. MORE

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is to be honored by a far-right group whose leader has a history of comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler and attacking gays and lesbians. Abbot is to receive an honor from two local affiliates of the U.S. Pastor’s Council, the Texas Pastor Council and the Houston Area Pastor Council. It’s unclear to what extent the groups are “groups”: all three share a website and are led by a single man, extremist pastor Dave Welch. The groups are also planning to honor Paul Pressler, who helped lead the “conservative resurgence”... MORE
