Mike Huckabee: Left Imposing Secular Values On Conservative Christians

Mike Huckabee, who once vowed to fight the purported secular theocracy running America, spoke yesterday to American Family Association President Tim Wildmon about how the left seeks to “impose” its “secular values” on conservative Christians, who Huckabee insisted do not want to impose their views on anybody.

He added that liberals simply cannot and will not understand the intellectual principles found in his book “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.”

“We’re never going to be fully understood by people on the secular left,” Huckabee said. “They don’t want to understand us, they want to ridicule us, they want to hold us in contempt, they want to hold us up to scorn and so they’re going to because we represent a direct threat to their worldview. If there really is an alternative to the secularist’s mind and we can articulate it, defend it and do it in a way that even can be intellectually defensible, then that’s a direct threat to their worldview.”

Huckabee said people on the left resist such views because “their version of diversity is really uniformity; they don’t want diversity, they don’t want a different point of view, they want everyone to agree with their point of view.”

The potential GOP presidential candidate went on to rail against groups like Right Wing Watch for quoting remarks he makes on conservative media: “Every time I’ve come on this radio show, as you know your show is monitored by the secular left, they listen to every word that is uttered on AFA…. Every time I’m on this show there is something I say that will just end up getting picked up by the secularists and they’ll blow it up and it will go viral.”

“So let me go ahead and give them one just so they’ll have something that they can write down and Twitter out right now,” Huckabee continued. “The second reason that a lot of this reaction comes against believers is because of the New Testament principle of ‘don’t cast your pearls before the swine.’ I’m going to let them look that up, they’ll get the context, they won’t use the context, they won’t understand the context but it’s a metaphorical device that Jesus used to explain why people can’t see the obvious.

The point is that for many of us we’re accused of wanting to impose our religious values on someone else; the fact is we just don’t want someone’s secular values imposed upon us,” he said.

RNC Member Dave Agema: Obama Is Only '6.26% Black'

In a winding and grammatically challenged Facebook post yesterday, Michigan Republican National Committee member Dave Agema lashed out at President Obama for his speech commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Selma civil rights march, suggesting that Obama was unqualified to give the speech because he is only “6,26% [sic]” black.

The GOP figure, who has a long history of making absurd and bigoted statements, said that while Obama’s “genealogy shows his ancestors owned slaves,” it was the GOP that “obolished [sic] slavery.”

Concerning Obama's recent march in Selma, I think a little clarification is necessary. The Republican Party is the party of anti- racism. The Republicans obolished [sic] slavery, gave equal rights and the right to vote to blacks ( 13th, 14th and 15th amendment) not the democrats. During the same period the Republicans fought against polygamy that was being pushed by the Mormons. So in both cases the Republicans fought for Biblical morality and civil rights for all. In 1964 18 of the 19 Congressman were democrats that filibustered the Civil Rights Act to prevent it from passing. Al Gore's dad was against anti-segregation. Obama is 50% white, 43.75% Arabic and 6,26% black. Obama does not have a history of overcoming discrimination and slavery like many others, yet he leads us to believe otherwise. In fact, his genealogy shows his ancestors owned slaves. His father was a Muslim and communist, his step father was a Muslim and a comminist [sic] and he went to a Muslim school in Indonesia. It's time Republicans dispel the lies that the democrats are the ones that freed the slaves. Democrats fought to keep it, yet the lack of historical knowledge is being lost in the "SPIN" of politics. Welfare programs don't make one free, they make one dependant [sic] and a slave to their government and a guranteed [sic] life of poverty. Some welfare is necessary, but not to the extent that even illegals get what our citizens deserve. This is just plan [sic] wrong! Truth is difficult to find in the political realm of "SPIN."

In an interview with MLive.com, Agema stood by his post and said that people who take issue with it should “search for ‘what percentage of white, black and Arab is Obama,’ look that up. ... You can get them off Snopes and Yahoo.”

Ted Cruz Touts Anti-Gay Bona Fides To Extremist Group

Religious Right activist David Lane has been organizing a series of meetings in early primary states between pastors and GOP presidential candidates, who seem to be not at all bothered by the far-right record of the ardent Christian Nationalist who believes gay rights will lead to a wave of car bombings and divine punishment against America.

Sen. Ted Cruz has benefited enormously from these gatherings, addressing Lane-sponsored summits around the country and recording get-out-the-vote advertisements with Lane’s American Renewal Project.

The Des Moines Register reports today that Cruz told a recent Lane event in Iowa, which included an appearance by his right-wing activist father, Rafael Cruz, that President Obama is “an apologist for radical Islamic terrorism” and railed against gay marriage as part of an “unrelenting assault on traditional marriage.”

Judges who strike down bans on same-sex marriage, Cruz said, are “ignoring their oaths, ignoring the Constitution and legislating from the bench.”

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz cast himself as a leading Republican opponent of same-sex marriage during an appearance before a crowd of evangelical Christians in Des Moines on Monday.

Cruz, R-Texas, described the ongoing shift toward legal recognition for gay couples as an "unrelenting assault on traditional marriage," and castigated judges who have struck down prohibitions for "ignoring their oaths, ignoring the Constitution and legislating from the bench."

The issue is one that Cruz said distinguishes him from other potential candidates in what looks to be a crowded 2016 presidential field. While others have de-emphasized or dropped altogether their opposition to same-sex marriage, he said, he would continue to make it a priority.

Cruz delivered his speech to a crowd of about 200 Iowa religious leaders and their spouses behind closed doors in a hotel ballroom in Des Moines. Although the American Renewal Project's "Pastors and Pews" event was closed to the press, reporters were able to hear and record Cruz's remarks from the corridor outside.

His remarks also emphasized his opposition to Iran and support for Israel and sharp criticism of President Barack Obama, whom he called "an apologist for radical Islamic terrorism."

The event also featured Cruz's father, evangelical pastor Rafael Cruz. The senator's appearance before the group culminated with attendees laying hands on him in an extended prayer.



Just down the hall from U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's speech to conservative evangelicals in Des Moines on Monday, a group of liberal religious leaders offered a different view.

The Interfaith Alliance of Iowa held a press conference seeking to clarify that political views and policy prescriptions offered by conservative Christians are not universally shared in Iowa.

"Many faiths live by one version or another of the Golden Rule, the guiding principle to treat others as you would be treated," said Connie Ryan Terrell, executive director of the interfaith alliance. "We wish that the American Renewal Project, David Lane, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal and all the clergy in attendance today would not just speak those words, but live by them."

League Of The South: Selma March Was An 'Orgy Of Sex, Alcohol And Drugs'

The League of the South marked the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery civil rights march by criticizing the liberal media for refusing to tell the “great untold story” of “the orgy of sex, alcohol, and drugs that took place between Selma and Montgomery in the spring of 1965.”

The city of Selma, League president Michael Hill wrote on the group’s website, is now “a few short steps from Third World status” as a result of federal intervention into the Southern state.

The neo-Confederate group also praised the posting of a billboard honoring Nathan Bedford Forrest, the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, near the Edmund Pettus Bridge, saying that it “is nice to have a bit of civilization on what us rednecks sometimes refer to as Little Harare on the Alabammy! Keep the skeer on ‘em indeed!”

The weekend of 7-8 March 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of what the US “civil rights” establishment calls “Bloody Sunday.” In 1965, marchers–local and regional negro leaders and outsider leftists of all stripes (Jew and Gentile alike)–descended on the quiet and quaint central Alabama river town of Selma to begin a 50-mile “voting rights” march to the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery. The first march plummeted like a lead balloon, as local and State law enforcement officials turned back the marches before they could cross the now-famous (0r [sic] infamous) Edmund Pettus Bridge. After the national news media showed the encounter between the marchers and Alabama officers, public pressure from outside the South got the feds involved and the march finally took place. The great untold story by the anti-South media was the orgy of sex, alcohol, and drugs that took place between Selma and Montgomery in the spring of 1965. But to deal honestly with these event and personalities would not have advanced the agenda of the evil South and the righteous left.

The rest, as they say, is history. Today Selma has lost fully one-third of its population of 30,000 in 1965, along with most of its tax base. Far from being a prosperous Southern river town, Selma sometimes, at least according to some of the residents, cannot even collect the garbage on a regular basis. The town is an economic and social basket case, dependent on federal largesse to function. It is but a few short steps from Third World status.



Well, we in The League of the South salute Miss Patricia and General Forrest. It is nice to have a bit of civilization on what us rednecks sometimes refer to as Little Harare on the Alabammy! Keep the skeer on ‘em indeed!

Sandy Rios: Obama Wouldn't Have Marched In Selma Because He's Too Privileged

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association took to her radio show today to blast President Obama for making remarks in favor of gay rights in his speech at the event marking the 50th anniversary of the Selma civil rights march. Rios said Obama, along with Attorney General Eric Holder and Rev. Al Sharpton, would never have marched in the Selma protests because they are too comfortable with their wealth and power.

“I can’t imagine the president and Eric Holder marching, knowing on that bridge that they might be giving their lives,” Rios said. “I find myself thinking that there is way too much privilege and pleasure and wealth in this new generation of black leaders to understand the sacrifices of their founding fathers of the Civil Rights Movement like Dr. Martin Luther King.”

Rios claimed Obama and Holder simply don’t understand the civil rights struggle since they have “gotten wealthy complaining about things they’ve never experienced” and are “privileged men who have been to great universities, accumulating great wealth, great privilege.”

“They do very well and yet they complain,” Rios said. “They stoke at the sores of the real grievances, the real legitimate grievances of black Americans and they make money off of it, they get rich off of it, they upset people over it in order to take power over them, to make them think that they actually care and they actually want to do something when all they really want is their vote and their massive support so that they can do other things that really and truly will undermine and destroy the black community.”

Rand Paul: The GOP's 'Principled' Flip-Flopper

Following his upset victory in the 2010 Republican U.S. Senate primary in Kentucky, Rand Paul told the country that he had “a message from the Tea Party.” That message has turned out to be a mix of anti-establishment libertarianism in the mold of his father and tired GOP ideas repackaged under the brand of the Tea Party.

Roy Moore: SCOTUS Gay Marriage Ruling Paves Way For Government To 'Take Your Children'

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore told the audience at the Family Research Council’s “Faith and Family Summit” on Friday that if the Supreme Court rules that states don’t have the right to impose bans on same-sex marriage, it would give immense power to the federal government. If marriage and family life become federal issues, Moore warned, “they’re going to be taking your children simply by the same logic they’re following.”

“They’re going to define who your children can be and who they answer to,” Moore said. “People will say, ‘oh we couldn’t go there, ‘well we’re going somewhere else right now that we didn’t think we would be going.”

Moore told FRC President Tony Perkins that “Christians need to stand up and do their duty to God as their duty to their country” by fighting gay rights. He declared that the issue of marriage rights is much more important than foreign affairs, immigration, economics or the national debt: “This is the most critical issue that faces this country. And I want to disagree a little bit with what I’ve heard about asking our presidential candidates [about marriage rights]. We should not have to ask them, Tony. If they haven’t come up and said it, they should not even be considered.”

If the court introduces the “redefinition of a word that existed for thousands of years before this country came into existence, and if we go there, then we’ve ruined the definition of the family and we’ll go to parent-and-child [marriage] next.”

Right-Wing Activist: Flee America Before Gay Marriage Causes God To Destroy Us

On Thursday, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles invited John Price, a onetime failed Republican Senate candidate from Indiana and author of “The End of America,” to discuss his decision to move to Costa Rica three years ago in order to follow God’s call to “flee from the daughter of Babylon and not stay and participant in her sins and not be around when the nation is destroyed.”

Price told Wiles that other Americans should consider leaving the U.S., which he said is “truly is the daughter of Babylon” as a result of the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.

“For Christians, there’s a really major troublesome thing coming and it’s going to be set loose on the country sometime between now and the end of June,” he said, predicting that the Supreme Court will “prohibit any state from establishing the parameters of marriage” and make “same-sex marriage the law of the land.”

Price said that same-sex couples will use the Supreme Court case to sue churches that decline to perform same-sex weddings, which he said was prophesied by the Bible. Eventually, Price predicted, “there will even be blood in the church and blood of the martyrs in Babylon and violence in the land.”

The two Religious Right activists agreed that once the Supreme Court strikes down bans on same-sex marriage, God will unleash His wrath upon America in the form of an “old fashioned paddling.”

“I honestly believe this is going to be the ruling that America crosses the line,” Wiles said. “What would a human father do with a son or daughter that had been blessed, had been a fairly good child most of his or her life and then suddenly just goes off the rails and becomes evil, wicked, rebellious, defiant? What would that father do? He would strip away that child’s blessings, and that’s exactly what our heavenly father is going to do to the United States of America. We’re about to get an old-fashioned paddling that is going to be extremely painful for this nation. 

He recommended that “people who don’t want to be paddled” choose to “flee” the country.

Price concluded that God will permit widespread “persecution of the church, pastors being arrested” in order to encourage Christians to flee: “He’s a loving God and he would allow persecution for a good purpose.”

David Lane: Gay People Imposing 'Reign Of Terror'

David Lane, the conservative political activist who organizes meetings and trips to connect evangelical voters with GOP presidential candidates, most recently Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal, is out with a new column attacking gay rights in the far-far-right outlet BarbWire today.

Lane writes that while what “homosexuals do in their home is none of my business,” he is worried that they now seek to “impose” their “reign of terror” on “anyone who will not celebrate their sexual lifestyle.”

What homosexuals do in their home is none of my business. What does concern me is the reign of terror, now becoming old hat, that they impose on anyone who will not celebrate their sexual lifestyle. They evidently intend their worldview to be forced upon all others. When the coming storm arrives, Christian pastors will have to make a choice. Either capitulate on the Gospel by giving approval to the homosexual lifestyle, or—go to jail.

Through His Word, God fully declared His mind regarding sexual sin—whether it is fornication, heterosexual adultery, homosexuality, or any other form proscribed in the Bible. God defines sin, not the U.S. Supreme Court, “vice stalking in virtue’s garb”.



The commodity which we Christians in America stand in need of is mercy and pardon. We have allowed spiritual calamity to come to a nation founded by Christians—men and women who were giants of the faith.

Such remarks shouldn’t come as a surprise, as Lane has previously alleged that gay rights will lead to the destruction of America and a series of car bomb attacks throughout the country.

Pamela Geller Names Jon Stewart The 'Most Disgusting Jew on the Planet'

In a WorldNetDaily column today about how the U.S. suffers from “an absence of the good” and “an abundance of poo,” conservative pundit Pamela Geller claims that modern American culture is best illustrated by “the popular emoticon found on phones today, of a happily smiling pile of excrement.”

Geller is especially angry with Jon Stewart, blaming him for the rise of America’s “poo generation.” Stewart, Geller writes, “should have given the ‘Most Disgusting Jew on the Planet Award’” at the Oscars last month.

“This vicious traitor, smug and self-righteous, has long been working for the other side under the guise of comedy” she writes. “Vile. Jon Stewart defines self-loathing Jew. But that’s not enough. He means to take us down with him.”

In every generation, there are icons that sum up its core values – not official ones, but symbols that really mean something to people: Rosie the Riveter, the American flag, Elvis Presley, the motorcycle jacket, the defeatist “peace sign” and now the tyrannical “Coexist” bumper sticker. There are symbols that sum up the zeitgeist of a time, a generation.

The popular emoticon found on phones today, of a happily smiling pile of excrement, is just that. It best exemplifies the low state of the world, of the culture, and of America itself in the age of the primitive. It signifies America’s rapid decay in the wake of the left’s decades-long war on Americanism, freedom and individual rights. The absence of morality – and by morality, I mean a code of values – has led to an absence of the good. And an abundance of poo.



The culture is ugly. Ugly as poo. The music is ugly, violent and misogynistic. Every crime drama and suspense series is rife with the most unimaginable gore. “Game of Thrones,” “Law and Order (Sex Crimes),” “American Horror Story” – they’re all devoid of humanity and morality. Devoid of goodness. It’s a cultural rout. It’s not that the line between good and evil has been blurred – it’s nonexistent. We are living in a cultural free-for-all, or more accurately, a free fall.



American traitor Edward Snowden got an Oscar; American hero Chris Kyle got the middle finger. Even the traitorous far-left journalist Glenn Greenwald got an Oscars shout-out. Of course Hollywood would reward vicious traitors. There was no way the Hollywood establishment was going to give an Oscar to Clint Eastwood after he so delightfully skewered Obama’s empty chair. And their disdain for Americanism and the military is infused in everything they churn out.

Sharing their disdain for America is Jon Stewart, to whom they should have given the “Most Disgusting Jew on the Planet Award.” No contest. After Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ground-breaking speech to Congress last week, Stewart scoffed at the many standing ovations Netanyahu received as the “longest bl-wjob a Jewish man has ever received.”

This vicious traitor, smug and self-righteous, has long been working for the other side under the guise of comedy. Vile. Jon Stewart defines self-loathing Jew. But that’s not enough. He means to take us down with him.

He is leaving Comedy Central, thankfully. But don’t get too happy; they’ll turn the show over to another leftist radical. When does Dennis Miller or someone like that get an HBO or Comedy Central gig? The cultural landscape is under siege by these killers.

And what’s next for Stewart? Politics, I fear.

As if Israel didn’t have enough problems …

Ayn Rand said, “There are two aspects of man’s existence which are the special province and expression of his sense of life: love and art.” Both of which have all but been extinguished in the era of amoralism – reflected in cultural rot and the exaltation of the crank.

This is where we are now. In the poo generation.
