Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 4/25/16

  • John Hagee says that he is building a "Sanctuary of Hope" for unwed mothers in "response to the barbarism that we saw displayed in these videos on Planned Parenthood." That is odd, given that they announced this project back in 2014.
  • We should probably not base our public policy on a bad experience that Joseph Farah once had: "I don’t much want to share a restroom with a woman who thinks she’s really a man. I’ll be very honest about that. I remember visiting Amsterdam a few years ago and had to use a public restroom. I was appalled that it was staffed by women attendants. I suddenly lost the overwhelming desire to relieve myself."
  • Glenn Beck misses blue laws for a typical Beckian reason: "Part of me says we needed those laws to be able to hold our culture and our people together because we don’t have any rituals to do it."
  • In a move that should not surprise anybody, Jesse Lee Peterson has endorsed Donald Trump.
  • Finally, a sober warning from David Lane: "Secular, fringe-extremists have become so infatuated with idol worship that they have lost all sense of restraint, with the goals of pushing transgender bathrooms, turning straight men gay and heterosexual women into lesbians."

Pat Robertson: Feminists Want To 'Have Some Parade And March Around Topless'

Pat Robertson, the televangelist who once said that feminism is “a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians,” today hailed the effort by some activists to “reclaim” feminism as a conservative movement.

Robertson's “700 Club” program profiled activists promoting what they call “maternal feminism,” which emphasizes preserving traditional family structures and banning abortion. Robertson hailed these activists for showing the world “what true feminism is.”

He said that women “don’t have to go out and have some parade and march around topless and say nasty things like these former feminists.” Feminism, Robertson said, had been distorted by “radicals” who wanted to “tear down the f-ing patriarchy and on and on.”

“‘Let’s be radical and let’s be free’ and a whole generation of college women were probably scarred by the rhetoric of these people,” he said. “But what we found as we’ve gone deeper into it is that some of those who were writing about feminism were actually making stuff up and lying.”

Glenn Beck Explains Why God Is Dragging Out The GOP Primary All The Way To The Convention

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck suggested that the Republican presidential primary race is going to be dragged out all the way until the national convention because God wants to allow everyone to have their say before He removes his hand of protection from his nation (presumably for failing to nominate or elect Ted Cruz as president.)

As he explained, God is "making sure all of us are accountable" for what happens to this nation, saying that while presidential primary contests are usually settled relatively early on, things are different this year because God knows that the fate of the nation is at stake.

In America today, just as in the Old Testament, Beck said, "the people cry out for a king and God and the prophets stand up and say, 'Don't do it, don't do it.' And the people cry out for a king and God and some people stand up and say, 'Don't do it, don't do it.' But those people who are standing up are always in the vast minority; 'Don't do it, you don't want a king.' And then, usually, the third time they cry out for a king and God's like, 'Whatever. You got a king.' He doesn't stop your free choice; you have free choice. Because we have a covenant with God that started with George Washington, because we have a covenant, I think before He withdraws His protection, He just wants you to be clear and He doesn't want New York to decide for you, He doesn't want New Hampshire to decide for you, Florida, Iowa."

"This thing is going to end at the convention," he stated, "but it is going to end with each one of us having to decide and writing our name down, do you want a king or not?"

Todd Starnes And 'One Million Moms' Scarred By Lesbian Kiss

Fox News commentator Todd Starnes was horrified last week by a kiss between two female characters in the ABC show “Once Upon a Time,” saying that it left parents “having to explain things that they should not have to explain to their kids — stuff that would make Mickey Mouse blush.”

Starnes took the time to criticize the episode in a radio segment hailing the late actress (and gay rights advocate) Doris Roberts. The Fox pundit lamented that he “stopped watching the major networks because of all that racy content.”

“Instead of entertainment, it seems like they are pushing an agenda,” he said. “Television programs like ‘Nashville’ and ‘Glee’ and, most recently, ‘Once Upon a Time.’ I received dozens of notes from moms and dads upset over an episode recently that included a passionate lesbian kiss between two of the characters.”

One Million Moms, the group affiliated with the anti-LGBT American Family Association, urged its members to ask TJ Maxx to pull the company’s support from the program for “purposefully pushing a gay agenda”:

ABC's "Once Upon a Time" introduced a lesbian couple during this week's episode which 1MM and parents find completely unnecessary. On the other hand, the producers said the inclusion of homosexuality in a show popular with kids was "important." Many families watch the program based on beloved children's fairytales, but unfortunately, ABC has distorted and twisted the storylines in these fables.



In a series of flashbacks, a romance brews between the two women. A sleeping curse leads Ruby to bestow true love's kiss on Dorothy to wake her. One kiss breaks the spell, but many follow in a brief make out session as the munchkins from Oz watch. Click here to see image.

"Once Upon a Time" is a far from innocent fairytale entangling favorite Disney characters in a new, modern storyline. When it debuted in 2011 it was called "the most family-friendly drama on any broadcast network in the past ten years" and Common Sense Media rated it for children 12 and up. So naturally, with its family-friendly 8:00 pm ET/7:00 pm CT Sunday night time slot, it attracts younger viewers and parents who still think of Disney as wholesome. Of course, 1MM knows that Disney has not been wholesome for some time and, once again, they are purposefully pushing a gay agenda.



Homosexuality continues to be over-represented in the media because producers want people, and especially kids, to think it's normal and everyday life. In reality, that is their fairytale.

Donald Trump Will 'Get Rid Of Your Cocaine Problems'

Donald Trump has already made some big promises in this campaign, vowing to do everything from eliminating depression to ensuring that “all of the bad things happening in the U.S. will be rapidly reversed.”

He told a rally in Warwick, Rhode Island, today that he will fix all of America’s problems: “We’re going to straighten it out. We’re going to bring your jobs back. We’re going to get rid of your cocaine problems and your other problems.”

The GOP frontrunner was also wowed by a crying baby in the crowd: “Aw, youth.”

Tom DeLay Ties Gays To Pedophiles But Says Dennis Hastert 'Doesn't Deserve What He Is Going Through'

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has written to a federal judge asking for leniency for ex-Speaker Dennis Hastert, the Republican politician who pled guilty last year to illegally structuring bank withdrawals as part of what prosecutors now say was a scheme to pay off a former student whom he had allegedly molested during his days as a high school wrestling coach. Prosecutors say that Hastert sexually abused at least four boys.

The former GOP leader has acknowledged that he “committed transgressions for which he is profoundly sorry.”

In a letter to the judge who will be sentencing Hastert in the banking violation case, DeLay defended Hastert as a good, godly man with very few flaws and who “doesn’t deserve what he is going through.”

Although DeLay's letter is undated, the Chicago Tribune notes that most of the letters in support of Hastert were “written in late February and early March — before prosecutors detailed sex abuse allegations against Hastert from decades ago.” Although prosecutors only recently laid out the new charges against Hastert, the allegations of child abuse were widely reported in May of last year.

But while Tom Delay may not think that Dennis Hastert deserves the public shame of being called a child abuser, he doesn’t feel the same way about LGBT people. After all, this is the same Tom DeLay who has demonized LGBT people by grouping them with pedophiles.

Just days after the Supreme Court delivered its landmark marriage equality decision, DeLay claimed that he knew of “a secret memo coming out of the Justice Department” that would legalize “12 new perversions,” including “having sexual with little boys.”

Attack On Gay-Straight Alliances Reveals Religious Right's Ugly Anti-Gay Heart

Many Religious Right activists and leaders feign hurt and indignation at being described as anti-gay. They’re not anti-anybody, they insist, they are just in favor of “traditional values” or “biblical marriage.” But others make it clear that they see homosexuality itself as the problem, and want to do anything they can to prevent LGBT people from gaining cultural acceptance and legal recognition, and their words and actions reveal the ugly anti-gay heart of the Religious Right movement.

One of these activists is Brian Camenker, a Massachusetts-based activist who operates the anti-gay hate group MassResistance. During a one-day anti-gay summit that preceded the World Congress of Families in Utah last October, Camenker disagreed with activists who call for “speaking the truth in love" to LGBT people and their allies. He said that there is scriptural justification for being “insulting and degrading” given that “we are in a war.” He said the Old Testament has a “very brutal” set of rules for treating “people who want to tear down society, who want to push immorality, who want to tear down the moral structure of society.” According to Camenker, “God says those people who want to do that must be destroyed.”

Now Camenker is praising the work of Liberty Counsel, one of the Religious Right legal groups pushing anti-LGBT and “religious liberty” legislation at the state level. This year, Liberty Counsel and MassResistance worked with parents and school board members in Franklin County, Tennessee, who opposed the creation of a Gay-Straight Alliance club at the county high school. Some of those parents waved Christian flags at a school board meeting to counter the rainbow flags of GSA supporters.

Liberty Counsel helped the school board write new rules for school clubs that Camenker gloats will “severely restrict – and eventually cause to terminate – the activities of the ‘gay’ GSA club recently put into the high school.” OneNewsNow, a “news” site affiliated with the anti-gay American Family Association, called the new rules “a way of eliminating the club, while avoiding a costly lawsuit.”

Liberty Counsel’s press release was more circumspect, saying it had helped the school board update a policy that “was inadequate to provide the necessary supervision for this group that promotes homosexuality and gender confusion.” But the intent was clearly to interfere with the creation of a safe space for students who have been struggling with their sexuality or want to support LGBT friends.

The new Franklin County regulations require, among other things, written parental approval to participate in a club, sign-in sheets documenting every attendee at a meeting, school administrators attending meetings once a quarter – all things that might well discourage questioning or vulnerable students. “When forced to be completely accountable, open, and transparent with what they’re doing with kids, and not having free access for their adult activists, these ‘gay’ clubs don’t last long,” Camenker sneers.

The reason that the school board and Liberty Counsel have to go to convoluted lengths, rather than simply refusing to allow the creation of a GSA, is that federal courts have ruled that the Federal Equal Access Act – pushed into law by Religious Right activists to protect the rights of students to form Bible clubs – also protects the right of students to form GSAs if their school district allows other non-curricular clubs. In 1999 and 2000, People For the American Way Foundation, working with Lambda Legal and the law firm of Irell & Manella, represented students in Orange County, California, to win the first court order that applied the Equal Access Act to require a school district to allow a GSA to meet on the same terms that it allows other high school non-curricular clubs to meet.

Aside from the legal requirements, the positive benefits of Gay-Straight Alliances for schools and students have been well documented. A 2014 study published in the International Journal of Child, Youth, and Family Studies and funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research found that high schools with GSAs “may reduce the odds of suicidal thoughts and attempts among both sexual minority and straight students.” According to a news release from the University of British Columbia:

LGBTQ youth and heterosexual students in schools with anti-homophobia policies and GSAs had lower odds of discrimination, suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts, primarily when both strategies were enacted, or when the polices and GSAs had been in place for three years or more.

UBC researchers had previously concluded that high schools with GSAs or other anti-homophobia polices reduced binge drinking and other problems with alcohol and drug use. 

A few years earlier, a study published in Applied Developmental Science found that middle and high school students with access to a GSA were less likely to experience depression and less likely to drop out. As ThinkProgress noted, “Participation in a GSA was associated with fewer problems with substance abuse, depression, and lifetime suicide attempts.”

This is what Camenker and his Religious Right friends are so proud of denying students.

 

Anti-LGBT Lawyer 'Taking A Glock .45 To The Ladies Room' To Defend Against Trans Women

Anita Staver, the president of the radical anti-LGBT group Liberty Counsel, tweeted last week that people should boycott Target for its new policy preventing discrimination against transgender customers, adding that she plans to take her pistol into the restroom from now on:

The statement comes from a leader of the group that CBS News pointed to as one of the organizations behind North Carolina’s discriminatory new law targeting the trans community.

Staver's husband and Liberty Counsel's chairman, Mat Staver, gained national notoriety for his work on behalf of Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who attempted to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and has in the past advocated for the criminalization of homosexuality.

He has also claimed that allowing transgender people to use the restroom that matches their gender identity will result in sexual assault and “even death.”

Chuck Norris Gets Behind The Chemtrails Conspiracy Theory

Chuck Norris, the actor and conservative activist, is very upset that no one is taking his warnings about chemtrails seriously.

The chemtrail conspiracy theory is centered around the bogus claim that the vapor trails behind airplanes are actually chemical agents used by the government or other actors to control the weather and the population.

In a column for the conspiracy theory warehouse WorldNetDaily titled “Sky Criminals,” Norris demands that more people join him in asking questions about the “covert chemtrailing" that "is taking place in the skies above us and unbeknownst to us.”

Country legend Merle Haggard, who died of a lung infection (double pneumonia) on April 6, sang in his song, “What I hate”: “What I hate is looking up and seeing chemtrails in a clear blue sky today.”

Several months ago, I wrote a column titled, “Why are geo-engineering researchers being stonewalled?” In it, I gave an array of evidence from scientists that geoengineering and, specifically, covert chemtrailing is taking place in the skies above us and unbeknownst to us.



Over the past 13 years since the study, does anyone think it’s possible that such mass vaccinations or immunizations have occurred by air in trial locations in the U.S.?

How many plane-dropping chemical cocktails have already been sprayed around the world in the name of securing public health?

When the heads of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention publicly sound the alarm that the Zika virus is “scarier than we initially thought” and the mosquito transmission ranges have increased from 12 states to 30 in just weeks, does anyone think there’s discussion of the NCBI 2003 study?

Whatever the intent or justification, and whether or not the purpose is for mass vaccinations or some other devious plot, if you don’t believe there’s some smoke-screening in the sky trails above you, I have a London Bridge to sell you in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.



It’s time again to wake up, America. I’m not Shakespeare, but something is definitely rotten in the state of Denmark.

Or as another music legend, Prince, who just passed away this past week, sang in his song, “Dreamer”: “While the helicopter circles us, this theory’s getting’ deep, Think they’re spraying chemicals over the city while we sleep? From now on I’m staying’ awake, you can call me a dreamer too, wake up, wake up.”

David Barton: 'The Way You Get AIDS Now Is You Have To Violate God's Standard Of Sexuality'

Last week, David Barton, the Religious Right pseudo-historian and GOP operative who is currently running a major super PAC in support of Ted Cruz's candidacy, spoke at a conference organized by the North Carolina Pastors Network, where he asserted that despite the success in evangelizing other nations, Christian converts are still engaging in unbiblical behavior as demonstrated by the fact that they are still getting AIDS and electing gays to public office.

In audio kindly provided to us by Freedom for All Americans, Barton can be heard explaining that "America is the single biggest influence in helping Christianize the rest of the world" but lamenting that the success in winning people to Christ has not necessarily translated into changes in behavior as these Christian converts continue to largely live by "secular values." 

"If you look at places in Africa," he said, "there are several nations in Africa that are 90 percent professing Christians, they call themselves a Christian nation, 90 percent of the population is Christian. In the last 25 years, in those 90 percent Christian nations, the AIDS rate has gone up, government corruption has soared through the roof, mistreatment of women is skyrocketing and poverty is increasing. Now tell me how, in a 90 percent Christian nation, you get this much bad fruit?"

"If you live by the Bible, you're not going to have the sexual misbehavior that leads to AIDS," he continued. "If you practice sex within marriage between a man and woman, AIDS is an impossibility, [other than through] a blood transfusion and now that we've checked that, we haven't had blood transfusion problems for about the last 15 years. So the way you get AIDS now is you have to violate God's standard of sexuality."

To further illustrate his point, Barton pointed to some unnamed nation in Central America that is also supposedly a 90 percent Christian nation but which "just had an election [where] they elected open homosexuals as their national leaders."

"Now how do you do that in a 90 percent Christian nation?" he asked. "1 Corinthians says that homosexuals will not enter the kingdom of heaven; you're a 90 percent Christian nation and you elect open homosexuals to elect the 90 percent that are Christian?"

In the past, Barton, who currently runs a pro-Ted Cruz super PAC, has repeatedly asserted that God will never allow us to find a cure for AIDS because the disease is His punishment for sin.
