Now that Michele Bachmann has announced that she is not running for re-election, her main Democratic challenger has declared "mission accomplished" and withdrawn from the race. Eagle Forum continues to warn that "if an illegal alien amnesty is passed, then Democrats are likely to get a huge voter windfall." Peter LaBarbera, Linda Harvey, Matt Barber, and others will protest the Human Rights Campaign next week to protest gay pride month because "homosexuality is against God; against Nature; very unhealthy; and a serious threat to children and religious...

In a Washington Times column today, Concerned Women for America’s Janice Shaw Crouse repeats her frequent claim that progressive social policies are to blame for what she once called “realities that are evident should one take a risky drive into certain neighborhoods of our cities.”
Crouse writes that the results of “taxpayer-funded contraceptives, abortions and expanding government welfare” and “the decline of marriage, including no-fault divorce and the sexual revolution” are “there for all to see – at least on TV— in areas... MORE

Earlier this year on Generations Radio, Kevin Swanson argued that if the Boy Scouts of America allowed gay members it would be just like letting serial killers teach preschool. Now that delegates at the BSA national conference voted to end the ban on gay youth, Swanson said that demonic spirits gained control of the convention to push the gay-inclusive resolution through.
Later, the right-wing radio broadcaster claimed that “any parent who loves his kid” should pull their child from scouting groups that don’t oppose “civilization-destroying things like homosexuality.... MORE

Fox News commentator Erick Erickson has been under attack for the last several days for remarks he made earlier this week that men should play the dominant role in society with women serving in a complimentary role.
Not surprisingly, such views have not gone over well with a lot of people, including Fox News host Megyn Kelly who had Erickson on her program today where she ripped him for his sexist views.
Even less surprisingly, Bryan Fischer, who believes that God created women to be ruled over by their husbands, has now come rushing to Erickson's defense against that "harridan Megyn... MORE

Joe Miller, the Tea Party candidate who won the Republican Senate nomination in Alaska in 2010 only to be defeated by incumbent Lisa Murkowski’s write-in campaign in the general election, has announced that he’s planning on running again, and he’s started hitting the conservative media circuit to build support. Yesterday, Miller talked with Steve Deace, and explained that unlike establishment candidates, he’s “not afraid to use the word ‘tyranny’” and isn’t “afraid about being labeled an extremist” because “it’s the...

Much of Glenn Beck's daily three-hour radio program consists of him speaking for extended, uninterrupted periods during which he expounds upon various aspects of his ever-widening, all-encompassing theory about what is truly happening in the world which only he can understand.
It is during these long stream-of-consciousness monologues that Beck's thought process often become clear; not that what he is actually saying is at all clear, because it never is, but rather the way in which his mind works becomes clear to anyone watching him try to explain how a variety of disparate and...

While we here at Right Wing Watch are still reeling from Buster Wilson’s departure from the American Family Association, the new host of Today’s Issues, Kevin McCullough, is preserving the show’s anti-gay venom.
While discussing the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to include gay members under the age of eighteen, McCullough claimed that gay people hate God:
One thing that is absolutely true is that people that live active and activist homosexual lifestyles absolutely, rigidly hate the God of Scripture. There is no doubt about that, they absolutely do. People that... MORE

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins thought he was being quite clever by hosting a program about what he called the “Obama phone,” even bringing Sen. David Vitter, of all people, onto his “pro-family” radio show.
Perkins alleged that the Obama administration offered low-income people access to cell phones in order to swing the election for the President.
However, as Vitter admitted during the interview, the program to increase cellphone coverage began in 2008, the year before Obama became president.
That’s right; the Bush administration started the... MORE
