Glenn Beck And Star Parker See The Upside Of Charleston: More Guns In The Inner City

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck interviewed right-wing activist Star Parker about last week's racist shooting at a church in Charleston, South Carolina. Beck and Parker were both encouraged that positive developments would come out of this tragedy ... such as more people who live in the inner city deciding that they need guns for self-protection.

"This weekend, I heard with the gun debate, black families in Chicago and inner cities going, 'No, no no, it's time now to arm," Beck said. "It's going the other direction. While the left is pushing for gun control, the inner city, the African Americans are the ones saying, "No, no, no."

"I'm glad they are getting to the place where they embrace our constitutional right to bear arms, the Second Amendment," Parker responded. "Because if you think about why there is so much murder in the black community, especially our at-risk communities where we have concentrated poverty through welfare policy, the blacks, only 16 percent even own an arm. So when you have an unarmed people, then those that are armed, the gangsters, will come and wreak havoc over your community."

"I hope that it takes a little bit of time" for blacks in the inner city to fully arms themselves, Parker added, "because we don't want a race war."

  • ALIPAC's William Gheen is sick and tired of hearing about "white privilege": "[Y]our attempts to characterize all whites as bad or evil is the same kind of defamation that has historically been applied to all blacks and all Jews by those that wished them harm."
  • Chuck Norris says that "if Obama really wants to reduce firearm power, he should consider stepping out of office, because his presidency has increased gun sales more than any other."
  • OneMillionMoms is furious about a Chobani yogurt ad featuring a lesbian couple: "They're pushing the envelope here by glorifying sexual perversion."
  • Liberty Institute needs donations because "2015 has been the most dangerous year for religious freedom since America won her independence."
  • Bill Muehlenberg welcomes us "to the Brave New World of the homosexual Stazi. [sic]"
  • Finally, Rachel Alexander says that President Obama is partially to blame for the racist massacre in Charleston: "Obama could have used the opportunity of becoming the first black president to heal race relations, moving us toward a colorblind society. Racism can no longer be as bad if Americans elect a black president. Instead, Obama has used his bully pulpit to exacerbate racial tensions, quick to find racism against blacks and quick to attack white police officers. He stirs up race relations deliberately to gain Democratic support. As a result, 84 percent of Americans say race relations have worsened or stayed the same since Obama has been in office."

Bryan Fischer Insists The Confederate Flag 'Is A Democratic Issue'

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer urged GOP presidential candidates and the Republicans who control South Carolina's government not to "accept the premise" that Republicans are responsible for addressing the controversy over the Confederate flag because "this is a Democratic issue."

"This is not a Republican issue," Fischer laughably asserted. "They didn't invent the flag. They didn't design the flag. They didn't fly the flag. They didn't march behind the flag. They didn't got to war with this flag at the head of their troops. This is a Democratic issue. The Democrats are the ones responsible for the existence of the Confederate flag ... This is a Democratic issue. This is a Democrat symbol. This was invented by Democrats. It was flown by Democrats."

It should be left up to Democrats, Fischer continued, to decide what to do "with your Confederate flag ... It's your flag, it's your issue. You need to decide what you want to do with it."

Glenn Beck: Flying The Confederate Flag 'Makes No Sense' Whatsoever

Later today, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will hold a press conference to reportedly call for the Confederate flag to be removed from the grounds of the state capitol in the wake of the racist shooting at a Charleston church last week.

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck said that while this issue should be left up to the people of South Carolina, he supports removing the flag because flying "the Confederate flag makes no sense to me whatsoever."

"It's a flag of another country," Beck said. "Why are you flying that? Are you proud that you were another country at some point?" 

On top of that, he added, it is a symbol of slavery, saying that if you look at the constitution of the Confederacy, "there's no ifs, and, or buts" that slavery was the central issue of the Civil War.

"It was not about state's rights because you didn't have a right as a state in the Confederacy to go against slavery," he said.  "So there's no state's rights there. That's not about state's rights."

"This is a legacy of rebellion against the United States that had everything to do with slavery," he continued. "It wasn't about state's rights, it was about slavery. And that was a [rebellion] that was put down; we have healed since then and it was only brought back as a symbol against the civil rights movement. It's a thing of the past."

Porter: 'With The Homosexualizing Of Marriage Comes The Criminalization Of Christianity'

Faith2Action's Janet Porter was a guest recently on Gordon Klingenschmitt's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, where she warned that a Supreme Court ruling striking down state bans on gay marriage would result in the "criminalization of Christianity."

"We have, at this moment, freedom hanging by a thread," Porter declared. "If the Supreme Court rules wrong, if they homosexualize marriage, with the homosexualizing of marriage comes the criminalization of Christianity. That's what a stake."

As such, Porter is urging people to engage in "high octane" prayer and fasting because "our freedoms are at stake" and also to prepare themselves to disobey the court's ruling because "we need to be able to obey God rather than men."

Lapin: 'The State Religion Of Secular Fundamentalism' Seeks To Obliterate Christianity

Rabbi Daniel Lapin was among the speakers today at Ralph Reed's "Road To Majority Conference," where he declared that "secular fundamentalism" has become an "official state religion" and that, just like Islam, it is seeking to "obliterate" Christianity from American society.

"The only form of sex that the official state religion of secular fundamentalism despises is the sex described as ideal in God's book, the Bible," Lapin said. "All other forms of sex [are] highly desirable and indeed brave and courageous to practice, but what you and your spouse do, that's retrogressive and negative."

"It's exactly what the Muslim hoards did when they invaded Spain in the eighth century," he continued. "They obliterated every sign of Christianity and that's what the state religion of secular fundamentalism does as it conquers our society, works at obliterating the only hope this country has, which is a fervent, revived Christianity."

Peterson: White People's Anger Over Being Falsely Labeled Racist Will Lead To More Racist Attacks Like SC Shooting

Steve Malzberg interviewed Jesse Lee Peterson on Newsmax TV yesterday about the shooting at a South Carolina church where a white gunman killed nine black churchgoers in an attempt to start a race war, during which Peterson bizarrely claimed that racism is not an issue in America today.

"[President Obama] implied that racism is still an issue in America today for black people from white folks, when it's absolutely not true," Peterson said. "You have the Department of Justice and others calling it a hate crime even before they knew, before the dust settled, they called it a hate crime, which is encouraging or verifying for a lot of angry black people that racism is a problem."

Even more bizarrely, Peterson then went on to say that white people are being unfairly labeled as racist and so "white people need to start speaking up instead of holding that anger in" because otherwise more violent incidents like this will happen.

"They need to speak out to the country, to black Americans and tell them, 'I am not a racist, I am not your problem, you need to take care of your own life, you need to get married, raise your own children, get away from the government taking care of you, drop your anger so you can see that I am not your problem,'" Peterson advised. "White Americans have been made to feel for the last 50 years or so that they are to blame for the situation in the black family and in the black community when it has nothing to do with white racism but everything to do with the lack of moral character."

White people, Peterson said, are being made to feel guilty and fearful about being called racist which is building up anger inside of them that will lead to more white people carrying out violent race-based attacks like the one in South Carolina:
