Last month, we reported that the infighting in the anti-choice movement has gone public in Kentucky, where the National Right to Life Committee and its Kentucky affiliate are endorsing incumbent Mitch McConnell, and a small fringe group called Northern Kentucky Right to Life is endorsing his Tea Party challenger, Matt Bevin. Like in the similarbattle playing out in Georgia, the issue is whether anti-choice politicians should vote for abortion restrictions that include exemptions for pregnancies that result from rape or incest. National Right to Life and its allies, while they oppose rape... MORE

With every passing day, Glenn Beck's transformation into the self-appointed prophetic leader of a doomsday cult grows more pronounced as he uses his network to issue increasingly dire warnings about the impending and inevitable destruction of America while literally thumping his Bible. Just take a look at yesterday's morning meeting where Beck harangued his staff that "the system" is in a full-fledged nosedive. "It's in a straight pitch down," Beck proclaimed. "That's what our society is doing right now. Straight pitch down!" The only solution, of... MORE

Texas GOP lieutenant governor candidate and state senator Dan Patrick warned yesterday of supposed left-wing indoctrination in public schools. Right-wing claims about CSCOPE, a curriculum program used in Texas, have been roundly debunked, but Patrick, a longtime CSCOPE critic, repeated the bogus claims in an interview yesterday on the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch. Patrick claimed that the CSCOPE curriculum frames the Boston Tea Party as the work of “terrorists” and promotes communism. He also criticized public schools for having “a bias for the... MORE

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right. It turns out that getting in bed with anti-government extremist Cliven Bundy wasn’t the best idea for conservative pundits hoping to stoke anti-Obama sentiment. Now, they may also want to consider ditching serial fabricator Todd Starnes and conspiracy theorist David Horowitz as well. 5. Todd Starnes Embarrasses Himself, Again When Fox News pundit Todd Starnes started publicizing the story of a Florida girl who said that a teacher told her to stop praying during lunch... MORE

Cathie Adams, the president of the Texas Eagle Forum and former chairwoman of the Texas GOP, claimed in speech to a Tea Party group this week that Muslim-Americans practice a “warring religion” and are waging a “stealth jihad.” She warned that you can never know if a Muslim is “going to turn radical,” if they are telling you the truth, or if “when you walk out of their home” you will be “shot in the back.” The Cleburne Times-Review reports that Adams made the remarks at a meeting of the Texas Patriots Tea Party on Tuesday. Adams also... MORE

While Cliven Bundy’s allies at Fox News have either gone silent or distanced themselves from the lawless rancher after the New York Times reported on his racist rant, the right-wing pundits at WorldNetDaily are standing by their man. After publishing an interview with Alan Keyes that tried to absolve Bundy of racism, WND editor Joseph Farah said that the New York Times must have deliberately misquoted Bundy, calling him an “entrapment target” and victim of a “sting operation.” This was a sting operation by the New York Times. The entrapment target wasn’t... MORE

Iowa radio host Steve Deace was on Larry Pratt’s Gun Owner’s News Hour last week to promote his new electoral strategy book, “Rules for Patriots.” The two spent quite a bit of time lavishing praise on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for his crusade to bust his state’s public-sector unions. Deace shared his theory that that public-sector unions are one of the “four pillars of the leftist, statist, Marxist movement,” along with “the child-killing industry, the homosexual lobby” and “government education” (which is “how they get...

A few weeks ago, we wrote a post about the amazing coincidence that was at the center of one of Todd Starnes' recent columns about a young girl who had allegedly been told that she was not allowed to pray before eating her lunch in her elementary school lunch room. As it turned out, the young girl just so happened to be the daughter of the man who is the Vice President of Sales at the Christian publishing house that is publishing Starnes' next book, which just so happens to be all about how religious liberty is under attack in America. Even after this rather curious connection was... MORE

Well that settles that. Alan Keyes tells WorldNetDaily today Cliven Bundy’s remarks on “the Negro” were not racist at all, arguing that liberals are the real racists for describing Bundy’s rant about his nostalgia for slavery as racist: “He wasn’t talking so much about black folks, but about the harm and damage that the leftist socialism has done to blacks,” said former U.N. Ambassador Alan Keyes, who also is a columnist for WND. … “I find it appalling that we basically have a history of the leftist liberalism that wants to... MORE
