Bryan Fischer Suggests Native Americans Were Justifiably Removed From Their Land

On “Focal Point” today, host Bryan Fischer once again linked the supposed moral failings of Native Americans to the seizure of their land by European colonists.

Fischer recounted the Biblical tale of the Amorites, a group that had “lapsed into superstition and paganism and idolatry and sexual immorality and savagery” until they were vanquished by the Israelites. He then paraphrased God as saying, “I’m going to be patient with the Amorite people for 400 years, and if they continue to sin at the rate they’re sinning, every time they sin they’re putting a little more slop in the slop bucket, and if they keep doing that the slop bucket’s going to get full, and I’m going to have to empty out that slop bucket.”

Fischer then used the story to justify the violent expulsion of Native American people from their territory at the hands of white settlers. “This may even be a part of American history, when we think about the moral right for the nation and the peoples that God brought into this land to exercise sovereign control over the land,” he said. “Part of that equation may have to do with the immorality of those nations that were exercising sovereign control over this land at the time.”

Glenn Beck: Obama 'Would Have Been Impeached Years Ago' If Media Decided To 'Tell The Truth'

Glenn Beck attacked the media on his radio show today for their coverage of President Obama, arguing that the president would no longer be in office if the media “just started to tell the truth.”

The right-wing pundit was especially upset that the media didn’t embrace his 2009 campaign against Van Jones, whose short-lived White House post as an advisor on “green jobs” Beck thinks should have brought down the president.

“He wouldn’t be president, he would have been impeached years ago…if they would have been telling the truth the whole time, he would’ve been impeached,” Beck said. “Quite honestly, he would not have made it—if it was anyone else, he would not have made it through Van Jones.”

Michael Savage: GOP Must Impeach 'Dictator' Obama 'Before It's Too Late'

Yesterday on his radio show, Michael Savage diagnosed President Obama with megalomania and said Congress must act quickly to remove him from office before he becomes a dictator and seizes “absolute power.”

“Should he be impeached? Yes. The question is, on what grounds?” Savage asked, before hawking his book “Stop the Coming Civil War.”

“This book, these 300 pages and 35 pages of references, is the document that must be used by John Boehner to seek impeachment of the president before it’s too late.”

Glenn Beck Makes Hilarious Trans Jokes: I Might Lose My Winkie!

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck and his cohosts Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray chatted about men who see romantic films based on the works of author Nicholas Sparks, such as “The Notebook” and “A Walk to Remember.”

Relying on tired gender stereotypes, the trio ended up joking about how men who see more than three or four Sparks movies are probably questioning their gender — “and there’s nothing wrong with that” — with Beck joking that such men should put “iodine on the winkie” or “cut it off like butter knife.”

“We put iodine on your winkie,” Beck said. “We give you breast enhancements, we give you shots of estrogen.”

As the show went on, of course, it turned out that Beck had seen several Sparks movies himself: “I might be getting genitalia surgery, nothing wrong with that, and you should pay for it. And nothing wrong with that either; we should all have to pay for that.”

Colorado GOPer Gordon Klingenschmitt's 10 Craziest Moments: Homophobia, Exorcisms And More!

Televangelist and Religious Right activist Gordon Klingenschmitt will soon be starting a new job as a Republican member of the Colorado House of Representatives. This is a big promotion for Klingenschmitt, who has until now been laboring away as the host of a TV program called “Pray In Jesus Name,” where he offers his own special brand of unhinged comments on issues ranging from gay rights to Obamacare and the animal kingdom.

Klingenschmitt, an exorcist who goes by the nickname “Dr. Chaps,” has promised to “tone down” his rhetoric now that he’s an elected official, but it will take a whole lot of toning down for him to sound even like a run-of-the-mill extreme anti-gay activist.

In honor of Klingenschmitt’s election by the good people of Colorado Springs, we’ve collected ten of the greatest hits of “Dr. Chaps”:

1) Gays And Democrats Want To Rape Children

After Sen. Al Franken and Rep. Jared Polis introduced the Student Non-Discrimination Act, an anti-bullying bill, Klingenschmitt accused the Democratic officials of wanting to legalize child rape.

“Al Franken (D-MN) wants to require pedophilia in all public schools,” he wrote in an email to supporters, calling the bill the “‘No Child Left Unmolested’ amendment” and the “Sodomite Schools Bill.” Warning that the bill would make “sexual assault protected as ‘freedom of self-expression,’” Klingenschmitt claimed that “child molesting” is “a favorite ‘recruiting’ tool of adult homosexuals. They violate children, and when the victim is later confused, they lie and say ‘you were born that way.’”

In other emails, Klingenschmitt likened Franken to Kim Jong-Il, compared Polis to an ISIS member seeking to behead Christians, and predicted that gay rights laws would cause schools to teach students that “every child has a right to be raped.”

Klingenschmitt has also accused same-sex parents of trying to recruit their children into the “homosexual lifestyle,” claiming that a stock photo of two men and a baby showed one man looking at the infant with “lust” and “ licking his chops”:

2) Obama Is Possessed By Demons, Requires Exorcism

“Dr. Chaps” is so convinced that President Obama is possessed by demonic forces that he wrote actually wrote a book called “ The Demons of Barack H. Obama.”

In the book, Klingenschmitt claims to have uncovered fifty demons “ruling” Obama , including the dark spirits of “sexual abuse,” “genocide,” “paganism,” “witchcraft” and “homosexual lust.”

On his TV show, Klingenschmitt once performed an exorcism “against the demon of tyranny who is using the White House occupant” to “oppress us.”

Klingenschmitt also once boasted of performing an exorcism of a rape survivor who identified as a lesbian: “I looked into her eyes as she began to weep and I said, ‘You foul spirit of lesbianism, this woman has renounced you, come out of her in Jesus’ name.’”

3) Demonic Transgender Kids Need A Good Spanking (And An Exorcism)

Klingenschmitt, who is convinced that “transgendered perverts” want to “violate” children and “recruit them into sexual perversion,” fears that transgender students are “raping, at least visually ,” girls at school.

Discussing a court case brought by the family of a transgender girl seeking to use the women’s restroom at her school, Klingenschmitt said the girl was “possessed by a demon” and needed to “man up.”

“The parents are encouraging that and really what the parents ought to do is take that boy to an exorcist, take that boy to a minister or at least discipline the boy, maybe give him a spanking,” he said.

4) We Will Be Forced To Engage In Sodomy

The televangelist warned last year that while homosexuality is “still illegal in the eyes of God,” now gay rights activists “want to force Christians to participate in their sodomy.”

“If we Christians do not participate in their sodomy, then we can be sued, bankrupted and jailed,” he said. “I don’t think that’s right, I perceive that’s a demonic spirit of tyranny that would come against the Christians and force us to convert to their religion.”

Klingenschmitt has also declared that gay people want to compel Christians to “worship” sodomy and “desecrate” churches “with acts of sodomy performed on the Christian altar.”

5) Gay People ‘Have Something Unhuman Inside Of Them’

Klingenschmitt advised a photographer who faced legal action after denying service to a same-sex couple to go ahead and photograph the couple’s wedding…but print a scripture verse that he interprets to mean that gay people are “worthy of death” on the back of each wedding photo. In another commentary, Klingenschmitt declared that gay people are “cooperating with the Devil and there’s something unhuman inside of them.”

Klingenschmitt reacted to NBA player Jason Collins’ decision to come out of the closet by declaring that the athlete was “demon possessed.” He also worried about the prospect of openly gay players in the NFL “recruiting children into the homosexual lifestyle.”

6) Gay Soldiers Wear Diapers

Despondent over the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Klingenschmitt endorsed a statement by Chaplain John R. Kauffman that “homosexuality is a combat divider, dividing one’s reason to live while taking breaks on the combat field to change diapers all because their treacherous sin causes them to lose control of their bowels.”

7) Gay Animals Are Of The Devil

Klingenschmitt once noted that the appearance of homosexuality and bisexuality in animals happens because “it is possible for demons or the devil to inhabit or invade animals just the same way they invade humans, and that causes the sin of lust.”

8) Obamacare Causes Cancer

Like most other Republicans, Klingenschmitt is no fan of Obamacare. In fact, he believes that “Obamacare causes cancer.” On one episode of his Klingenschmitt, told the “liar” and “imposter” president, “Mr. Obama, you’re not a healing Jesus, you cause cancer with your bad policies.”

9) Obama Will Kill Bundy Ranch Supporters

“Dr. Chaps” believes that all of his listeners should be armed in order to “defend themselves against left-wing crazies.” During the Bundy Ranch standoff, he warned that the government was starting to dig mass graves for the bodies of protesters as a way to “punish the people who are standing for freedom.”

10) Madonna Is Trying To Have Sex With Me!

Klingenschmitt said last year that while it was very nice of Madonna to try to have sex with him through her song “Revolver,” he declined the invitation: “She’s out there seducing people to death and these lyrics resemble the Bible. When she says, ‘Have sex with me and die, have sex with me and die, my love is a killer, do you want to die happy?’ Honestly no, I’d prefer not to die happy. Thank you Madonna, I prefer to live and I prefer to live for God and I’ve been faithful to my wife for 22 years and I don’t think I’ll ever know another woman.”

He also mentioned the well-known fact that “when people repented of pornography they were healed of liver cancer.”

Conservative Activist: Immigration Action Will Trigger 'Civil War'

Richard Viguerie, the renowned conservative campaign operative, is warning that President Obama’s stated plan to use executive action to relieve some undocumented immigrants of the threat of deportation may cause a civil war.

Viguerie told WorldNetDaily yesterday that such a move “could ignite, quite frankly, a civil war across America against the Democratic Party,” which he says has become “an elite special interest party” seen as indifferent and hostile to working Americans.

At least, according to longtime conservative fundraiser Richard Viguerie, who has a warning for President Obama about his stated plans to take executive action on immigration reform even though voters just repudiated his policies by voting his party out of power in the Senate.

“If President Obama, by executive order, extends amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, as he’s promised to do shortly, this could ignite, quite frankly, a civil war across America against the Democratic Party,” Viguerie cautioned.

He continued, “It could be a major, major blow to the Democratic Party and brand them as the party that rewards illegal activity, and it could do great, great damage not only to the Democratic Party, but quite frankly, to America.”



As for the Democrats, Viguerie believes they are alienating white working class voters by supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants, attacking religious freedoms, and attacking gun rights.

“It’s clear that the Democratic Party, the Democratic leaders at the national and state level are being seen more and more as being either hostile to working middle-class Americans, or not engaged in their problems,” he said. “The working class, traditional-value voters are feeling that they’re just not welcome in the Democratic Party. It’s become more of an elite special interest party.”

Anti-Choice Group Moving Into Planned Parenthood Clinic Closed By Texas Abortion Restrictions

Last year, hours after Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed into law a sweeping anti-choice bill designed to shut down abortion providers in the state, Planned Parenthood announced that it would be closing three of its Texas clinics that provide abortion services, all of them in rural areas, leaving women seeking an abortion far from other providers.

Now, the anti-choice group 40 Days for Life, which organizes protests outside of abortion clinics throughout the country, is announcing that it is moving its national headquarters into one of the shuttered Planned Parenthood facilities in Texas. Where Planned Parenthood used to provide medical care, 40 Days for Life is also planning to house an anti-choice crisis pregnancy center.

40 Days for Life credits its members’ prayers for giving it its new headquarters:

BRYAN/COLLEGE STATION, Texas /Christian Newswire/ -- The worldwide 40 Days for Life movement is moving its headquarters into a former Planned Parenthood abortion center in Bryan/College Station, Texas. The pro-life initiative began outside that same facility ten years ago.

"This news shows what God can accomplish when His people pray," said Shawn Carney, campaign director of 40 Days for Life. "More than 6,400 children lost their lives in this building, but God is making 'all things new.' What was once a place of death and despair is now going to be a place of life and hope. We are excited to start using this location to aid the rapid worldwide growth of 40 Days for Life, and to help other cities become abortion-free."



Short-term plans include a memorial service for the children lost to abortion inside the building, and tearing down the tall, black iron fence surrounding the property as part of renovations.

The new 40 Days for Life headquarters will be used to help many more communities end abortion. The building will also house Hope Pregnancy Center, an affiliate of CareNet, as they expand their local medical services to include free STD testing. "The partnership between the two organizations demonstrates the close relationship between 40 Days for Life and life-saving pregnancy resource centers," Carney said.

Planned Parenthood, however, had a different explanation for the clinic’s closing: drastic cuts to family planning aid in Texas, aimed directly at Planned Parenthood:

Rochelle Tafolla with Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast said they’re closing the center because of continued and targeted cuts to family planning.

She said it started when the budget for the Family Planning Network was drastically cut. Soon after, Tafolla said they were further hindered when the Women’s Health Program in Texas came to an end.

And those two programs provided the vast majority of access for women in east Texas to get basic health care, said Tafolla. Well-Woman exams, birth control and cervical cancer screenings.

Tafolla said it’s the City of Bryan and surrounding communities that will suffer from the closing.

The big deal is that women have relied on Planned Parenthood. They’ve come to trust us, said Tafolla. They know that they can get nonjudgmental, unbiased information from us. They know that we are affordable, and they know that they can get into us whenever they need to.

Tafolla said it will be much more difficult for women to get access to their kind of help.

Susan B. Anthony List 'Defamed' Its Namesake With Controversial Mailer, Says Susan B. Anthony Expert

A top Susan B. Anthony expert is once again taking to task the anti-choice group Susan B. Anthony List for using the name of the women’s rights pioneer to push its anti-abortion political agenda.

What drew the latest criticism from Deborah L. Hughes, president of the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House in Rochester, New York, was a pre-election Iowa mailer from the Susan B. Anthony List that looked like an official “public health alert” but that was in fact a slam on pro-choice Senate candidate Bruce Braley. SBA List vowed to spend $3 million in the 2014 election cycle to support Senate candidates who oppose abortion rights.

In an October 31 statement, Hughes said that SBA Lists’s “tactics repeatedly cross a line that is outrageous and inconsistent with who Susan B. Anthony was” and that Anthony’s “good character is being defamed by their actions.”

The recent activities of the Susan B. Anthony List, a 501(c)(4) organization, and its affiliated political action committee, the SBA List Candidate Fund, have raised concerns for the Anthony Museum & those dedicated to protecting the legacy of the great reformer.

The List’s assertions about Susan B. Anthony’s position on abortion are historically inaccurate. “We can make room for a different interpretation of history, and we certainly support political engagement,” says Hughes, “but their tactics repeatedly cross a line that is outrageous and inconsistent with who Susan B. Anthony was. Her good character is being defamed by their actions. People are outraged by their actions, causing harm to Anthony’s name and the mission of our Museum.”

The most recent example is an election mailer that voters in Iowa received this week. The outside of the mailer looks like an official announcement of a disease outbreak, “PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT: CHILDREN IN YOUR AREA ARE VULNERABLE TO A PUBLIC HEALTH THREAT THAT CONTINUES UNCONTROLLED. . .” Inside, it diagnoses that public health threat as the Democratic Senatorial candidate.

“Depending on how you feel about the political issue, you might say The List and this mailer are ‘brilliant’ or ‘horrific.’ That isn’t our issue,” says Hughes. “Our concern is that a national political lobbying group is using Susan B. Anthony’s good name for their benefit, and they are damaging her reputation in the process.”

This isn’t the first time Hughes has tussled with the anti-choice political group. Two years ago, she issued a statement clarifying that her museum was not related to the Susan B. Anthony List, saying that while she was “delighted that the once-reviled radical feminist has earned such a high place of honor and authority that everyone seems to want her for their champion” that people should “not be confused by political parties, caucuses, or groups that claim they know what Susan B. Anthony would say about a contemporary issue.”

In an interview with Bill Moyers, Hughes went into more depth about why she disagrees with SBA List’s insistence that Susan B. Anthony was an opponent of abortion rights. Other Susan B. Anthony experts have also disputed SBA List’s historical claims.

Right Wing Round-Up - 11/6/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 11/6/14

  • Gov. Bobby Jindal will reportedly be hosting a David Lane-organized prayer rally in Louisiana in January, much like Gov. Rick Perry did in Texas in 2011.
  • Rick Joyner says "No President has been so resoundingly rebuked by the American people as was done with the Elections of 2014. The House now has its largest majority in history, and it is Republican." Neither of those claims are true.
  • Tony Perkins claims that "as conservatives, we aren’t looking for businesses to take our side." Oh, really?
  • James Robison is cautiously optimistic about the election results: "God has mercifully given us the opportunity to see our nation awaken and begin the healing process. The runaway train now known to be an out-of-control, excessive, secular progressive (basically socialistic) federal government has at least been slowed, but not yet brought under control."
  • It is 2014 and the Republicans have finally elected a black woman to serve in the House of Representatives, so naturally Glenn Beck sees that as proof that Martin Luther King's dream has finally come true. Way to go Republicans! Oh, by the way, the first black woman to serve in Congress was a Democrat and she was elected in 1968.
