Staver: Obama's Support For Caitlyn Jenner Is Proof 'We've Got Evil ... Residing In The White House'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber were aghast at Caitlyn Jenner's gender transition and were utterly outraged that President Obama had praised Jenner's courage on Twitter, with Staver declaring that "we've got evil that is actually residing in the White House."

Barber declared that instead of celebrating Jenner's transition, "people need to be in mourning, need to be praying for him, he needs to be pitied," asserting that "our world is upside down right now."

Staver agreed, saying, "You know, we've got evil that is actually residing in the White House, as well because of that."

"It's just evil to applaud evil," he said. "And as the person who has the highest position in the United States to come out and use that position to literally applaud something that's evil  ... This is nothing to applaud; this is the sign of a sick society."

Right Wing Round-Up - 6/23/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/23/15

  • Steve Deace warns his fellow anti-gay activists that "those so-called 'libertarians' aren’t your allies. Instead, they’ll be the ones holding the jail cell open for the Rainbow Jihad when they shove us inside."
  • FRC's Tony Perkins says that "at some point, we have to step back and ask the question, 'What is the purpose of school?' When did it stop being about the education of children and start becoming about political indoctrination?"
  • OneMillionMoms is now going after Tylenol for featuring same-sex couples in a recent ad: "Tylenol is just contributing to the collapse of the family. Tylenol is attempting to redefine marriage and recreate the total makeup of family by definition."
  • Glenn Beck and Van Jones actually agreed on something which, for Beck, is just further proof that Jones is dishonest and a "very, very dangerous guy."
  • Finally, Stephen Black says that "'Gay marriage' is simply a tragic, defiling covenant that is detestable in the sight of God. This union is a manifestation of narcissistic, emotional idolatry. This union is a promotion of human desires and lust and, therefore, idolatry."

Washington Times Recruits For David Lane's Christian-Nation 'Army'

Last week the Washington Times published a glowing profile of David Lane, a GOP political operative and Christian-nation extremist. The article reported on Lane’s efforts to mobilize “an army” to lead the charge for his battle with “secularists.” Just days later, the Washington Times officially became part of David Lane’s recruitment effort, launching a petition campaign co-sponsored and co-branded with Lane’s American Renewal Project.

According to the campaign’s website, “The Washington Times has agreed to deliver the petition to the Supreme Court.” It’s ridiculous to imagine that the decision in the marriage case has not already been made, even if it has not yet been made public, or to think that petitions to the Supreme Court would have any impact at this late date, which is, as the website recognizes, “just days away from deciding whether homosexual couples are entitled to marry.” So the only real purpose for the petition seems to be for the Washington Times and Lane’s American Renewal Project to build their email lists and recruit participants for a campaign of massive resistance to a pro-equality ruling.

They didn’t even bother to put much effort into the writing. Here’s the utterly non-compelling petition:

Tell the Supreme Court to Leave Traditional Marriage Alone

To: The Supreme Court

I want the Supreme Court to know I believe that marriage should remain the sanctified union of a man and women.

I want the Supreme Court to know that I believe, as Thomas Jefferson did, that judges should stick to the Constitution and not create new law when it comes to the issue of marriage in America.

I want the Supreme Court to know that I believe opening marriage to same-sex couples invalidates the institution of marriage that hundreds of millions of American men and women agreed to over the last two centuries when they said their vows.

I'm signing this petition because I want the nine Supreme Court justices to leave traditional marriage alone.

As we reported just last week, the Washington Times “has long been a right-wing propaganda vehicle in the guise of a newspaper,” and has partnered with Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition, the National Organization for Marriage, and the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Fischer: If You're Going To Take Down The Confederate Flag, You Should Also Remove 'The Rainbow Flag Of The Gay Reich'

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer once again contributed some of his typically well-reasoned and insightful thoughts on the controversy over the Confederate flag by demanding that if this flag is going to be removed, so too should the rainbow flag, which is the symbol of "the Gay Reich."

"If we are going to remove symbols of oppression from our culture," Fischer said, "if we come to the point where we say any flag that represents bigotry, any flag that represents hatred, any flag that represents slavery or oppression needs to be removed, then I want to suggest to you that the next flag to go ought to be the rainbow flag of the Gay Reich."

"The rainbow flag represents the gay lobby, it represents Big Gay, it represents what I'm calling for the first time today, I'm introducing a new term: the Gay Reich," he continued. "They've got a flag just like the Nazis had their flag."

"That flag is a symbol of slavery and oppression and bigotry and prejudice and bias," Fischer said. "So if we're going to go after symbols of oppression, we ought to make the rainbow flag the next target for removal in our culture."

Beck: Nonexistent University Of California Policy Will End In 'A Bullet To The Head'

On his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck voiced his outrage over reports that the University of California had supposedly banned phrases such as "America is the land of opportunity" and "America is a melting pot" on the grounds that they are "microaggressions" that could potentially offend others.

In reality, the university had simply held "seminars to make people aware of how their words or actions may be interpreted when used in certain contexts." Nobody was required to attend these seminars and "no one at the University of California is prohibited from making [these sorts of] statements."

But that basic detail was lost on Beck, who decided to react to this phony story like he always does: by warning that it will end with beatings in the street and a bullet to the head.

Calling the University of California "a re-education camp," Beck warned that the university had officially banned certain thoughts and so it is only a matter of time before it bans any books which contain those thoughts. From there, it was just a short step to attacking the people who hold those views and beating them in the streets. And if that doesn't get them to shut up, Beck said, "you just kill a few of them and everybody else shuts up."

"You ban not just words but thought; next thing, you're going to be banning books," Beck warned. "And the step after that is a bullet to the head."

Indiana Anti-Gay Bill Was Ted Cruz's Alamo

At a campaign stop at a shooting range in Iowa earlier this week, captured on video by the conservative blog Caffeinated Thoughts, Sen. Ted Cruz boasted of his support for a since-altered Indiana law that would have opened the door for private businesses to discriminate against LGBT people in the name of religious freedom, comparing his stand to that of Texas soldiers at the Alamo.

“Sadly more than a few Republicans ran for the hills, including more than a few candidates who are running for president in 2016,” he said. :Some of them chose that exact moment to go rearrange their sock drawer.”

But Ted Cruz, said Cruz, was made of stronger stuff.

“In my view, Indiana was a time of choosing. In my view, Indiana was, as William Barret Travis at the Alamo said as he drew the line in the stand, it was a moment to choose which side of the line you stand.”

Cruz previously referred to opposition to Indiana’s measure as a gay “jihad.”

Sandy Rios: Obama Created Racial 'Unrest' Behind Charleston Shooting

American Family Association official Sandy Rios, speaking on her radio program last week, accused President Obama of “using” the Charleston church massacre “to try to whip people into an emotional frenzy about disarming the American people.”

Rios, who previously said that Obama “enjoyed” the shooting because it offered him an opportunity to “remove guns from the hands of the American people,” told a caller that the president is “dangerous” and “stirred a lot of this unrest up.”

She said that not only has Obama “made racial tensions much worse,” but he has also released tens of thousands of immigrant “murderers” and “robbers” onto “our streets.”

Rios also spoke to a caller who claimed that the Sandy Hook and Aurora massacres were false flag events designed give the government “another reason to get the guns,” blaming the Aurora movie theatre shooting on a government “mind control program” that peddled “reuptake inhibitors.”

“Mao did it, Lenin did it, Stalin did it, Hitler did it, Pol Pot did it, when they take the guns, it’s over,” he said.

Rios responded that “everything you said was true, I don’t know about the inhibitor part, but certainly what Mao did with the guns and the whole move to remove our ability to protect ourselves and that it is the only thing standing between us and tyranny.”

FRC Official: Obama Emulating 'Totalitarian Regimes' By 'Weakening The Family'

Ken Blackwell, the former Ohio secretary of state who is now an official at the Family Research Council, joined former Alaska GOP politician Joe Miller on his radio program this week, where he warned that the “rapid expansion of the welfare state under the Obama administration is not unlike any of the welfare state expansions, totalitarian regimes, throughout human history.”

Totalitarian regimes, he said, “have done two things,” namely “weaken the family” and “silence the church.”

“And sure enough, that’s what the Obama administration is doing,” he said. “He’s weakening the family and he’s trying to marginalize the church by attacking religious liberty.”

Rafael Cruz: Aid Recipients 'Locked Into A Slavery Relationship With The Government'

Sen. Ted Cruz’s dad, Rafael Cruz, joined right-wing Florida radio host Joyce Kaufman yesterday to promote his son’s candidacy. In response to a caller who wondered whether “our Hispanic immigrants” are falling for “some type of deception” from Democrats, Cruz responded that immigrants and others are being tricked by Democrats into being “locked into a slavery relationship with the government” through government assistance.

“I think that deception is the way that this administration operates in every area,” he said. “Look how people have been deceived into becoming dependent upon the government and having the government telling them that they’re going to take care of them from the cradle to the grave. It has destroyed the American dream, destroyed these people’s lives, they no longer strive to better themselves and to provide for their family.

“So it is just, you have realize the following: For Democrats to win, they have to lie because their policies do not work. Their policies have been a failure throughout history. So if their policies of bigger government, more control, less freedom, more taxation, more regulations don’t work, they have to lie to the American people. And unfortunately we have many, many people in American have drank the Kool-Aid.”

Kaufman interjected with a story about the owner of a Florida bodega offering to point her to government services.

“I keep going back to how that destroys the American dream, that destroys the incentive for somebody to better themselves,” Cruz responded, “and they become serfs of the government, and that just makes them locked into a slavery relationship with the government.”
