Eagle Forum Deems Liberals Callous, Malicious Murderers

Yesterday on Eagle Forum Live, Phyllis Schlafly’s guest host Bill Borst and author J. R. Dunn discussed how liberalism is responsible for millions upon millions of deaths throughout the world and that because of the election of Barack Obama, the lethal ideology is going to take over America. Dunn was promoting his book “Death by Liberalism,” arguing that Rachel Carson, one of the forerunners of the modern environmental movement who has been demonized by the chemical industry, is “one of the few people along with Karl Marx who’s responsible for millions of deaths by writing a book alone.” Dunn and Borst agreed that liberals have no problem with the millions of people supposedly dying from their policies because it is simply “collateral damage”:

Borst: And they don’t seem to get bothered by that, it’s sort of like collateral damage in a war?

Dunn: It doesn’t impact. You can even bring this up to them and it’s kind of a shrug, like, so what?

Borst: Right, they treat life, you said, ‘malleable,’ right. I don’t think they really think people are important. It’s a form of socialism, that people exist for the good of the state, am I right?

Dunn: I would say so, it’s not even so much the state as for the good of the idea, liberalism has to survive. Everything else can go out the window.

Borst: You talk about Rachel Carlson in your book and ‘Silent Spring,’ I think that woman probably has more blood on her hands that any woman I can name, do you agree with that?

Dunn: The way I put it in the book is that she’s one of the few people along with Karl Marx who’s responsible for millions of deaths by writing a book alone.

Borst: Americans are taught not to judge, right? Does that help liberalism? Does that help advance the liberal cause? In other words, we’re taught not to search for motivations, don’t judge motivations

Dunn: I would say it does.

Borst: See what I’m working I think these people know exactly what they’re doing, I think they know people will die, and as you said before I think they’re very cavalier and don’t really care.

Dunn: Collateral damage.

Borst: Exactly.

Dunn: Collateral damage. It’s something we can live with. One of the saying that they like that they don’t speak too loudly in public is, ‘you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.’

Borst: So I guess my point is, have we crossed that line? With these people working actively.

Dunn: That’s a good question. That’s one thing that we wouldn’t find out about until its twenty years on.

Perry Is Smarter, More Honest, And A Better Leader Than Obama And Romney Combined

Yesterday, the Barna Group released the results of a survey it conducted comparing President Obama to Mitt Romney and Rick Perry on four key "character or competency qualities that voters often evaluate when selecting their preferred candidate."

The four characteristics examined were perceived honesty, intelligence, philosophy of government, and leadership ability and Barna added together each candidate's "excellent" or "good" ranking and determined that on three of the four characteristics, President Obama came out on top (Romney came out on top in the category of leadership ability.)

Barna is well-known for its excellent research and polling on the evangelical community and reports that, in contrast to voters on the whole, evangelicals placed Rick Perry at the top of every category and that his scores were generally higher than the scores of Obama and Romney combined:

Among evangelicals the candidate with the top score was Mr. Perry in all four categories – leadership (30% excellent versus 9% for each of his two peers); honesty (26% excellent, compared to 18% for Mr. Obama and 9% for Mr. Romney); intelligence (42% excellent rating, dwarfing the 26% given to Mr. Obama and 20% to Mr. Romney); and philosophy of government 25% excellent, 15% for Mr. Obama, 6% for Mr. Romney). Note that on all four attributes, evangelicals rated Mr. Romney last (although his scores tied him with Mr. Obama regarding leadership ability).

AFA Columnist Rails Against Glee, Modern Family

Marcia Segelstein, a columnist for the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow, decried today the representation of gays and lesbians and families led by same-sex parents in television shows such as Glee and Modern Family and the movie The Kids Are All Right. Earlier this year, the AFA launched a boycott of Glee for allegedly promoting “deviant sexuality,” “homosexual behavior,” “idolatry” and “vulgar” choreography.

Citing the work of right-wing Washington Times columnist Mary Beth Hicks and her new book, “Don't Let the Kids Drink the Kool-Aid: Confronting the Left's Assault on Our Families, Faith, and Freedom,” Segelstein claims that shows like Modern Family represent “destructive, negative influences of the culture,” lamenting that in the entertainment industry the “Kool-Aid is free and it's being handed out by the gallon”:

Christian parents have a responsibility to do everything they can to protect their children from the destructive, negative influences of the culture. But I also believe they should be concerned about the kids who make up the rest of their children's generation.

After all, they'll be the ones voting in the coming years on same-sex marriage laws. They'll be the ones serving on school boards and determining sex ed curricula. They'll be the ones debating whether tolerance applies to Christians. They'll be the ones who, actively or passively, decide if it matters whether children are raised in traditional family structures.

Author Mary Beth Hicks in her new book, Don't Let the Kids Drink the Kool-Aid, argues that because America's future depends on the next generation, our responsibility doesn't end with our own kids.



Just look at the TV show that recently won the Emmy for this year's Outstanding Comedy Series -- Modern Family. Here's a brief description of the ABC show from TVsquad.com:

"Dad Jay tries to be accepting of his adult son Mitchell's gay lover Cameron and adopted Asian baby, Lily, while Mitchell and his sister Claire try to be accepting of divorced Jay's remarriage to the much younger, voluptuous Colombian Gloria, which came with Gloria's wise-beyond-his-years pre-teen son Manny. If we had to point out the most 'normal' member of the Pritchett brood, or, at least, the one who puts the most fun in dysfunctional? Definitely Cameron, the flamboyant, flashy-attired boyfriend of Mitchell."

We've come a long way since The Waltons.

Pushing its agenda via the big screen, Hollywood gave us The Kids Are All Right. The plot revolves around a lesbian couple with two teenage children who seek out their biological father, referred to as "sperm donor" by the moms. The title really says it all. We're supposed to believe that everything's hunky dory in this non-traditional family.



A discussion of current media pushing an agenda would be incomplete without mentioning the phenomenon called Glee. Ryan Murphy is the creator and director of the Fox hit in which storylines often revolve around gay and bisexual characters. Hicks writes that Murphy "is an outspoken gay activist who uses his creative platform to question the concept of heternormativity in storylines about teens."

In fact, GLAAD (the Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) tracks the representation of gays and lesbians on television. In 2008, a total of 22 series on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and CW featured 35 LGBT characters. That's a record.

The Kool-Aid is free and it's being handed out by the gallon.

Perkins: If Obama Is Re-Elected, It Will Spell The End For America

Today, Tony Perkins stopped by The Heritage Foundation to participate in a Blogger's Briefing and promote the upcoming Values Voter Summit.

During the briefing, Perkins accused the media of seeking to ruin any conservative candidate that promotes an agenda that seeks to pull America back from the brink of social and fiscal destruction caused by the Obama administration, and asserted that if President Obama is re-elected in 2012, it will literally spell doom for this nation:

There is one thing that is very clear in my mind, and I think in many voters as I travel the country and speak in churches among social conservatives: there's a recognition that this administration, given another four years, will destroy this country. I don't think that the moral or fiscal fabric of America can withstand another four years of an Obama administration.

Mefferd: Homosexuality Part Of A Pagan Plot To "Wipe Out Christianity"

Religious Right talk show host Janet Mefferd yesterday lashed out at the gay rights movement, arguing that “the homosexuality issue is an excuse” to “wipe out Christianity” and that “pagans” are using homosexuality to stifle the “word of God” and “shut Christians up.” This is, of course, not the first time Mefferd has used her program to denounce rights for gays and lesbians.

Listen:

Mefferd: I think the homosexuality issue is an excuse, I think it’s an excuse. I think it’s an excuse of the pagan mind to begin what they have wanted to do for a very long time and that is to wipe out Christianity. Maybe that’s overstated, maybe I’m being a little bit over the top, but I really don’t think so. I think it’s an excuse. I think it’s the pagan who doesn’t want to hear about sin. I think it’s the pagan who doesn’t want the word of God to be believed by anybody because it’s an offense. And I think homosexuality is the perfect issue for them to use to shut Christians up.

Renew America: Repeal Of Don't Ask Don't Tell Will Lead To Society's "Complete Ruination"

Conservative columnist Monte Kuligowski wrote today in Renew America that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will help “sink the country” because God will stop protecting America “when the official position of the state is the thumbing of the nose at God.” “Americans once had the confidence that their divine protection was a strong, impenetrable fortress,” Kuligowski writes, “but now we might hope in vain for a cardboard box as the various storm clouds gather.”

Continuing his anti-gay screed, Kuligowski mocked a Navy lieutenant for marrying his partner immediately following the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, warning that as “America grows weaker her enemies grow stronger and more emboldened” until the country eventually falls into “complete ruination”:

Welcome to our upside down world where wrong has become right and right has become wrong.

In celebration of the new era of open homosexuality in the U.S. military, USA Today featured a story on Sept. 20 of a Navy officer rushing to "marry" his male lover — complete with a photo of the new husband (wife?), Lt. Gary Ross wearing his Navy dress uniform during the ceremony.



That which has always been considered dishonorable in America is now honorable to the hard left.

The real danger we now face is that the state is sanctioning homosexual practice by law. We've gone from longstanding state-sanctioned disapproval to state neutrality to state-sanctioned approval in a fairly short span of time. The difference between saying, "What people do in private is their business," and, "It's right for the state to sanction and protect immoral behavior" is overwhelming.

Religious traditionalists have warned and will continue to warn that the extraordinary blessings Americans have long enjoyed cannot be presumed to continue when the official position of the state is the thumbing of the nose at God — the same Almighty God our founders relied upon for divine protection as they pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor in the contest for our faith-based liberty.

Americans once had the confidence that their divine protection was a strong, impenetrable fortress; but now we might hope in vain for a cardboard box as the various storm clouds gather.

For those who think that it's just coincidence that liberals happen to be federally sanctioning open homosexuality at the time of a national debt problem so enormous that many fear the very end of American civilization as we know it — they might want to think again.

As we can learn from ancient civilizations, moral and economic decline are coinciding shipmates which, ultimately will sink the country. As America grows weaker her enemies grow stronger and more emboldened. For now, a false security is found in the fact that complete ruination seldom happens overnight.

We Agree With C. Peter Wagner: Someone Should Ask Perry How Much He Knows About NAR

As we mentioned yesterday, C. Peter Wagner was the guest on NPR's "Fresh Air" where one of the topics discussed was the rise of the New Apostolic Reformation and the role of NAR leaders in Gov. Rick Perry's "The Response" prayer rally.

The audio and transcript of the program has now been made available and it contains lots of interesting revelations. 

For instance, host Terry Gross asked Wagner about the presence of NAR-affiliated activists at the event and even Wagner admitted that he was surprised by just how many were involved, speculating that it had a lot to do with Perry's ties to Alice Patterson - who believes that both the Democratic and Republican Party are literally controlled by demonic spirits - and agreeing that NAR leaders organizing a prayer event and praying with a governmental leader like Perry was "significant step forward" for the movement: 

GROSS: Alice Patterson, who is an apostle in the movement, and she was onstage with Rick Perry when he spoke, and she helped mobilize supporters for the rally ... Is Rick Perry's connection to the apostles an indication that he approves of your work, or is your endorsement of him an indication that you endorse him as well as a presidential candidate?

WAGNER: Now, that's a very, very good question, Terry. I know Alice well. But when Doris and I got - we didn't know about the prayer rally. We didn't know about the - who would be on the stage at The Response and - but we were there. And I was very surprised that so many of the platform participants would fit under the New Apostolic Reformation template. The names you named would be very correct.

...

GROSS: So I can't presume to speak for Rick Perry or know what he believes or know his relationship to the New Apostolic Reformation, but how do you interpret it, that the rally was organized in part by people affiliated with the New Apostolic Reformation and that, you know, several of them were represented on stage with him, including standing next to him when he spoke? How do you interpret that in terms of what Rick Perry's connection is with the New Apostolic Reformation?

WAGNER: Now, I can - I don't know Rick Perry personally, so I can only surmise because that question kept running through my mind as well. My suspicion is that when Rick Perry arrived at The Response, he had never heard of the New Apostolic Reformation. The only thing is that he is a governor that believes in prayer. And so not only will he call large prayer rallies like The Response, but he will also, from time to time, have people pray for him personally.

And one of the people who has prayed for Rick personally has been Alice Patterson, and so they bonded to the extent that when Rick said, well, let's have a prayer rally – Alice, would you mind organizing it, and she said yes - that was with no previous knowledge that there was any such thing as a New Apostolic Reformation on his part.

GROSS: But at the same time, Alice Patterson is one the people who - her mission is to bring the views of the New Apostolic Reformation into government. Correct me if I'm wrong on that.

WAGNER: That's right. No, you're right.

GROSS: So it's interesting that she should be praying with Rick Perry.

WAGNER: It's very interesting. And what it shows is that Rick Perry is a political figure that strongly believes in prayer, perhaps - well, you can't say more strongly than others, but as strong as some.

GROSS: Strongly believes in prayer and is also connecting himself with somebody who wants to bring the views of the New Apostolic Reformation into government. And he is a government leader who wants to run for president.

WAGNER: That's very true. But I wish somebody would ask Rick Perry how much he knew about what you just said before he invited Alice to help organize it.

GROSS: So in this respect, in terms of making inroads into government, would Rick Perry's prayer rally from August be considered by people in the New Apostolic Reformation as something of a victory?

WAGNER: Yes. The governor of a state sees and articulates, verbalizes, that the nation is in such dire straits that we need to do things differently, one of which we need to make more direct contact with heaven through prayer, and he called the prayer rally.

And so we - yes, we would see that as a significant step forward.

We share Wagner's desire that "somebody would ask Rick Perry how much he knew" about Patterson and the NAR before he partnered with them in organizing this prayer event. 

Gross also brought up the video of Thomas Muthee anointing and protecting Sarah Palin from witches at her Wasilla church in 2005 and asked Wagner what he thought of it, to which he replied that such things ought to be done in private because when when it happens in public, people can see it and then "we get the kind of flack that you're reflecting ... and the kind of criticism, and there's no need to make that overt. We can just do that - probably could do that in her kitchen."

Tea Party Nation Urges Monday Night Football Boycott, Backs Hank Williams For Senate

After Hank Williams Jr. compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler and called him “the enemy” during a Fox News interview, ESPN dropped his theme song on Monday Night Football. Williams later acknowledged that his comments were “extreme” but didn’t back down from the analogy. Now, Tea Party Nation president Judson Phillips wants Williams Jr. to run for U.S. Senate in Tennessee and wants members to stop watching Monday Night Football “until Hank Williams is brought back to sing the intro to MNF”:

No Hank, no Monday Night Football, ESPN, owned by far left leaning Disney struck back at Hank Williams today, taking his trademark, “Are you ready for some football?” song off fo [sic] the opening of Monday night football.

Why? Williams dared to insult Disney darling Obama.



Earlier this year, ESPN reprimanded Golf commentator Paul Azinger for an anti-Obama tweet.

From USA Today in August:

UPDATE: ESPN is coming down on Paul Azinger for mocking President Obama on Twitter. The golf analyst tweeted Thursday the commander in chief plays more golf than he does -- and that Azinger has created more jobs this month than Obama has.



As much as I love sports, I have just about had it with ESPN. Until Hank Williams is brought back to sing the intro to MNF, I won’t watch it and I encourage everyone else to turn off MNF.

Hank Williams, Jr. is rumored to be thinking about running for the US Senate in Tennessee. As a Tennessean, all I can say is, “Run Hank Run!”
