BarbWire Accuses Obama Of 'Blasphemy' For 'Desecrating' Easter By Letting Gay Bishop Speak At Prayer Service

BarbWire senior editor Jeff Allen was left seething at the news that President Obama invited gay Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson to speak at his Easter prayer service, writing yesterday in a column entitled “Blasphemy: Obama Picks ‘Gay’ Bishop For Easter Prayer” that “the president chose to desecrate the Easter observance” as part of “his and the culture’s celebration of everything ‘gay.’”

President Barack Obama hosted about 150 Christian leaders at the Fifth Annual Easter Prayer Breakfast on Monday. At the conclusion of the event, the president chose to desecrate the Easter observance by spontaneously inviting the Episcopal Church’s first self-avowed, practicing homosexual bishop to offer the closing prayer. In his and the culture’s celebration of everything “gay,” apparently nothing is sacred.



The Right Rev. Gene Robinson expressed his shock in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind the podium: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!”

In another column, Allen claimed that the Nevada GOP’s decision to drop anti-choice and anti-gay positions from its party platform is a sign that right-wing activists may need to create a third party focused on opposing abortion rights and LGBT equality.

Well, the slow, agonizing process of political suicide has officially begun. On Saturday, the Nevada Republican Party struck the precursory blow in the torturous bludgeoning death of the GOP.

At a state convention which pitted the establishment, Ruling Class Republicans against conservative Tea Party members over political endorsements, the Nevada delegates did, however, manage to make the controversial decision to abandon their stance on sodomy-based marriage and abortion.



But they seem to have conveniently ignored the fact that the homosexual agenda has been rapidly eroding the personal freedoms of people of faith, forcing them to violate their consciences and stripping them of other First Amendment protections.



Despite the Nevada Republican Party’s suicidal tendencies with regards to the social issues, it is imperative that we elect a conservative Republican who will staunchly defend marriage and the rights of the unborn.

Or else the party is history. And talk of a third party will pick up more steam.

Erik Rush Blames Obama For Anti-Semitic Kansas City Shooting

Conservative pundit Erik Rush is linking President Obama to the shooting rampage of a former Ku Klux Klan grand dragon directed at two Jewish organizations outside of Kansas City that left three people dead.

On his radio show Tuesday, Rush accused the Obama administration and the media of promoting “anti-Israel sentiment” and “fomenting racial discord between various races.”

“The anti-Semitic tone that is being tolerated, in my view, by so many in this country and as a result of the tone I believe that the administration and the press have set, they’ve chosen to capitalize on every racist incident that has happened when it is in the interests of their agenda or their ratings, fomenting racial discord between various races, between blacks and whites and the anti-Israel sentiment has become pretty much epidemic,” Rush said. “I’m kind of surprised that we haven’t seen more in the way of anti-Semitic violence.”

As Earth Day Approaches, Anti-Immigrant Group Tries To Woo Environmentalists

The anti-immigrant group Californians For Population Stabilization (CAPS) is trying to appeal to California environmentalists with an ad hooked to Earth Day.

CAPS, which has ties to the anti-immigrant network founded by white nationalist John Tanton, is the leader in the ongoing effort to recruit environmentalists to the nativist cause.

Despite the group’s attempt at a green image, it has rarely hidden its anti-immigrant nativism. The group’s chairwoman Marilyn Deyoung warned last year that children of immigrants allowed to stay in the country under the DREAM act would become communists and smugglers. Earlier this year, CAPS published a blog post saying immigration had turned Los Angeles “from an American city to something resembling Mexico.” The group’s employees include a founding member of the neo-Confederate League of the South and a contributor to the white nationalist website VDARE.

In CAPS’s Earth Day ad, a little boy asks why California is “so crowded” and has “so many cars.” “Let’s slow immigration and save some California for tomorrow,” a voiceover replies.

 

Anti-Gay Extremist Linda Harvey Says She Is Tired Of Talking About Gay Rights Issues

Linda Harvey, who dedicates nearly every single one of her radio bulletins to attacking gay people and gay rights, now says that she is sick and tired of hearing about gay rights.

Last Friday, Harvey marked the Day of Silence by charging that “enough is enough” and she can’t stand hearing about homosexuality.

She called out the media for allegedly dedicating too much time to coverage of gay rights issues: “The mainstream media breathlessly covers homosexual so-called rights as an issue way out of proportion to its relative importance. When the Supreme Court struck down portions of state and national marriage laws last summer, you’d think the first person had landed on Mars.”

Oddly, she ended her radio bulletin by urging her members to “save a life” by speaking more frequently and publicly about their opposition to homosexuality.

Enough is enough. Have you noticed that the promotion of homosexuality seems to be almost everywhere you look these days? From movies and TV shows to commercials, mass-market paperback novels and even children’s media. As you’ve heard me say many times, the topic of sexual deviance has sadly permeated the climate of our public schools. The message children hear is one that endorses these lifestyles. Today is the public school Day of Silence and I am hoping you have decided to keep your children home on a day when they are likely to hear, even in the silence, a very deceptive message, one that endorses homosexuality and gender confusion by using the excuse of preventing bullying. Bullying can be prevented without endorsing homosexuality or implying that Christian faith causes bulling, but try telling that to the activists.

But again this propaganda is now coming at us from all directions. The mainstream media breathlessly covers homosexual so-called rights as an issue way out of proportion to its relative importance. When the Supreme Court struck down portions of state and national marriage laws last summer, you’d think the first person had landed on Mars. Meanwhile, much more important issues like human trafficking, child abuse or the daily slaughter of unborn babies in this country get little attention.



The only thing that will overcome this darkness is for parents to stand up, even if it’s uncomfortable. It’s not hateful to do so and your willingness to draw the line in the sand and say no to homosexual propaganda may be the action that saves a life. On the Day of Silence, I am asking you as parents and grandparents to remain silent no longer.

Sheriff Richard Mack Compares Armed Nevada Ranch Protesters To Rosa Parks

Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack – Arizona’s second most notorious birther sheriff –of course traveled to Nevada this week to join rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the Bureau of Land Management .

In an interview with Iowa talk show host Steve Deace on Monday, Mack compared the militia groups standing with Bundy to Rosa Parks and suggested that if reinforcements had not arrived, the Bundy family would have fallen victim to Holocaust-like violence.

Deace told Mack that the Nevada standoff was a “warning shot” and “a test to see if their efforts over the last 40 years to dumb you down in academia and pop culture and install the idiocracy” had succeeded.

Mack replied that it was. “This was Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus,” he said. 

Deace: I think this is a test to see if their efforts over the last 40 years to dumb you down in academia and pop culture and install the idiocracy – and that’s their numbing agent – to see if you are now compliant to the point of just saying, ‘Nothing we can do, the almighty state has spoken.’ I think this is a warning shot.

Mack: Well, I think it is too, and I think that everything they do is based on this kind of propaganda scheme of the warning shots and trying to make sure other peasants don’t rise up with their pitchforks. Well, this particular peasant said, ‘No, I’m sorry, I’m not rolling over for this one. You guys are out of line, you don’t own the land, you don’t own our ranch, you don’t own us, and we will stand firm in the principles of freedom that we were blessed with as Americans.’ And that’s exactly what this was. This was Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus.

Later, the two moved on to criticizing the BLM employees who were sent to enforce a court order to remove Bundy’s cattle from federal land because the rancher has refused to pay grazing fees since 1993. “Any tyrant anywhere is only as good as the collaborating bureaucrats under his command that are willing to actually carry through with his orders,” Deace said. “‘Just following orders’ is the tagline of every tyrannical government in the history of human civilization.”

Mack agreed, noting that a similar defense had been attempted in the Nuremberg trials. “The soldiers that were put on trial at Nuremberg used that as a defense, and it was disallowed,” he said. “They said anybody should know you don’t get to just kill people and then claim that you were just following orders. And same thing for all of this.”

He then claimed that if the militias hadn’t shown up at the Bundy ranch, the family would have been shot.

Deace : They can give all the unconstitutional edicts from Washington, DC, all they want. Any tyrant anywhere is only as good as the collaborating bureaucrats under his command that are willing to actually carry through with his orders. And that’s the part about this that bothers me. ‘Just following orders’ is the tagline of every tyrannical government in the history of human civilization.

Mack: Well, in fact that’s a quote, and I know you know this, but it’s a quote from the Nuremberg trials regarding the Holocaust. And the soldiers that were put on trial at Nuremberg used that as a defense, and it was disallowed. They said anybody should know you don’t get to just kill people and then claim that you were just following orders.

And same thing for all of this. We’re supposed to be the ones in the world that are above such. This is the United States of America, where the rights of the individual are protected by the rest of us in government. And now we have the actual government officials doing just the opposite and almost bragging about it. And so, what I do know is that the people who showed up en masse protected this family and others from being shot.

Fischer: The Poor 'Ought To Be Kissing The Ground' Upon Which The Rich Walk

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer read from a recent Wall Street Journal article reporting that the top 1% of Americans account for nearly 30% of all federal tax revenue.

To Fischer, that means that the poor and middle class families in this country "ought to be kissing the ground on which [the rich] walk" because it is the top 1% that is paying for EBT cards and food stamps and federal housing.

The rich, Fischer asserted "ought to be given ticker tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody":

Right Wing Round-Up - 4/15/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/15/14

  • After finally being allowed to enter Canada, Peter LaBarbera got himself arrested for displaying anti-gay and anti-abortion posters and handing out literature on a college campus and then refusing to leave.
  • Glenn Beck says that Congressional candidate Barry Loudermilk reminds him a lot of David Barton (and he thinks that is a good thing.)
  • Rep. Michele Bachmann will speak at Liberty University tomorrow.
  • In the wake of the Brendan Eich controversy, anti-gay activists are calling on Mozilla "to make a clear statement to its employees as to whether this incident is a dog whistle to all pro-marriage, pro-family, pro-life and religious employees and talent to vacate the company or will Mozilla ensure a truly diverse and safe workplace environment for them."
  • We hate to break it to you, Lee Duigon, but nobody is afraid of you; they are mocking you.
  • Finally, Matt Barber tells a Christian publishing company that is reportedly going to publish a book by a gay Christian that it can "no longer call yourself a Christian publishing company. Call yourself a secular publishing company or an anti-Christian publishing company, because what they are doing here is counter biblical, it's anti- Christian and it flies in the face of God's teaching on sexual morality."

All Of Glenn Beck's Dark Prophetic Visions Are Now Beginning To Come True

As we have noted several times in the past, Glenn Beck has a tendency to wildly vacillate between proclamations of impending doom that are followed, a short time later, by triumphant declarations that everything is going to turn out just fine.

Back and forth he constantly sways, one week warnings that utter destruction is inevitable and then, a few weeks later, joyously promising that huge miracles are in the works.

Lately, Beck has been on an upswing, predicting that success beyond his imagination was just over the horizon because all of his prayers were starting to be answered. But now it seems that the showdown between the federal government and anti-government activists over the last week in Nevada has soured Beck once again and so he has now returned to warning that dark, dark days are ahead for this nation.

Referencing the standoff in Nevada, Beck reiterated his position on his radio show today that anyone who is advocating the use of violence cannot and must not consider themselves to be a fan of his whatsoever, repeatedly asserting that God does not support threats or calls to violence.  As such, Beck beseeched his audience to humble themselves and turn to God as the solution to all of our problems; but even then, he warned, something has already been set in motion that is going to tear this nation apart.

Revealing that he has been experiencing deeply disturbing "personal promptings" for several years that have been so frightening that he has been reluctant to even discuss them, Beck said that, on Saturday, he realized that they were finally beginning to occur.

"I do believe we are entering dangerous times," he warned. "They are the times that have been foretold, they are the times that I have, on a different scale, seen coming as well. I believe what has been set in motion now is new and different and will tear us apart":

FAIR's Dan Stein Claims Holder, Democrats Encouraging 'Civil Violence' And 'Breakdown Of Civil Order'

Dan Stein, the president of the anti-immigrant Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), told Florida radio host Joyce Kaufman last week that our country is at the verge of “civil violence” thanks to Attorney General Eric Holder and immigration reform advocates.

Kaufman told Stein in an interview at FAIR’s annual Hold Their Feet To The Fire summit that President Obama has “done nothing but destroy everything my country represented,” for which she cited Attorney General Eric Holder’s “thuggery” when he had a heated interaction with Rep. Louie Gohmert last week.

Stein agreed, warning that after Holder’s lapse in “the tradition of civility,” the next step is “it degenerates into civil violence.”

Later in the interview, Kaufman complained about how immigrants’ rights advocates “misbehave” by holding sit-ins in congressional offices, while anti-immigrant groups “don’t do that kind of behavior.”

Immigration reform advocates in the Democratic Party have “sow[ed] the seeds of civil disobedience,” Stein replied. “They’ve pulled a genie out of a bottle. And they may be very sorry by promoting civil disorder, criminal behavior, and the breakdown of civil order for their own partisan advantage.”

Kaufman: And now, I look at this guy, he’s done nothing but destroy everything my country represented. The attorney general sat there yesterday and called a congressman, ‘You better not go there, buddy,’ he said to Louie Gohmert, a man who has been in Congress and doing the hard work of standing up to these impositions by the administration. It’s like thuggery.

Stein: Well, the decline in our civic fabric and the civility – the tradition of civility among government officials, certainly on Capitol Hill, was an important part of the legislative process. After that, it degenerates into civil violence.

Kaufman: Our opposition continues to misbehave, to have sit-ins in Democratic congresspersons’ offices and get themselves arrested, while we gather together in an orderly fashion, year after year, sometimes every month, and just plead for Congress to hear us. We don’t do that kind of behavior. So much for living in the shadows. They’re right out there on ABC, CBS and NBC. Every day I see an illegal alien stepping forward to tell me about what they need from me.

Stein: Well, you sow the wind and you reap the whirlwind, a biblical quote there. By sowing the seeds of civil disobedience, the speaker harassed by illegal aliens, the guy’s trying to get a sandwich for breakfast, or at his house. Democratic members, they’ve got to be careful. They’ve pulled a genie out of a bottle. And they may be very sorry by promoting civil disorder, criminal behavior, and the breakdown of civil order for their own partisan advantage.
