Glenn Beck

Right Wing Leftovers - 7/9/13

  • While ranting about rapper/actor Mos Def, Glenn Beck calls President Obama a "ridiculous piece of garbage."
  • James Dobson says the current "cause" for the gay agenda is "legalized polygamy and lowered age of consent for children."
  • Tony Perkins and various Religious Right groups joined several members of Congress today in pressing for the right of members of the military to discriminate against gays under the guise of protecting religious liberty.
  • Anti-gay activist Michael Brown is launching his own television program.
  • Rep. Louie Gohmert is apparently the third hottest conservative politician, behind Ted Cruz and Allen West.  We couldn't make that up if we tried.

Beck: 'We Are In So Much Trouble ... The Darkness Is Astounding'

On yesterday's radio program, Glenn Beck and crew discussed a story from The Blaze reporting that President Obama's Twitter account was following the account of a pornographic film company, Wicked Pictures.

Since Obama's account is managed by Organizing for America and currently "follows" more than 660,000 accounts, co-host Stu Burguiere speculated that some low-level staffer probably added the Wicked Pictures account to the Obama feed by mistake, but Beck wasn't buying it because the people working in the White House "are the biggest degenerates out there."

In fact, Beck said, the Wicked Pictures account was intentionally followed by Obama because "I don't think these guys care about anything anymore ... [Obama] could get on television and shoot somebody in the head and go 'I just thought I was doing that for national security; you're all safe now, goodnight everybody' and nobody would say anything."

When Burguiere noted that this was the second time the Obama account had been found to be following a pornographic account, Beck grew increasingly dismayed, declaring "we are in so much trouble ... if we don't wake up and, as a nation, start to insist that our nation's laws follow the laws of nature's god and nature's laws, we're in trouble man; we're in real trouble. The darkness is astounding":

Glenn Beck Is Suspicious About Teresa Heinz Kerry And Hillary Clinton Hospitalizations

Yesterday, Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Secretary of State John Kerry, was rushed to this hospital after apparently suffering from some sort of seizure ... but Glenn Beck isn't buying it because he just doesn't trust anything that the government says, which is why he suspects that the entire thing was orchestrated as a distraction from the "huge scandal" that Secretary Kerry was on his boat while a military coup took place in Egypt last week.

While it may be true that Heinz Kerry (or, as Beck called her, "Mrs. Ketchup") did end up in the hospital, Beck "can't give you any sympathy now because you've lied to us too many times" ... just as when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hospitalized with a blood clot last year in an effort to cover-up Benghazi.

Though Clinton's blood clot was tied to a concussion she received after she fainted while suffering from the flu, Beck said "if she really had some weird thing in the hospital, then it should prohibit her from ever becoming president.

"She shouldn't be President of the United States if she going into the hospital for some sort of heart condition or brain condition or whatever she was in the hospital for," Beck said, "or was that just a scam so that we didn't talk about [Benghazi]"?

'I Am Your Moon. And You Are My Beasts': The Birth Of Glenn Beck's Independence Day Extravaganza

Tens of thousands of Glenn Beck acolytes gathered in Salt Lake City, Utah over the Independence Day holiday weekend to participate in Beck's multi-day "Man in the Moon" event, which is just the latest annual reminder of Beck's inflated sense of self-importance.

While the centerpiece of the event was the "Man in the Moon" stage show, which Beck promised was going to permanently "change the way we celebrate Fourth of July," the gathering featured a variety of exhibits, presentations, and speeches which, at least according to The Blaze, were all met with wild applause.

For instance, when Sen. Mike Lee praised the Constitution, "the audience erupted in cheers and applause" and when he attacked the Supreme Court, "the audience applauded wildly."

Elsewhere, Rep. Louie Gohmert "received a standing ovation" when he stood up from the audience to praise Michelle Malkin during her remarks as she railed against immigration reform, for which she received "wild applause" from the crowd.

David Barton also spoke at the event and, amazingly, he too "was greeted with intense applause and a standing ovation."

Heck, even a couple that survived a plane crash received a "chorus of applause."

But the highlight of the weekend was the "epic rendition of America’s story" as told from the moon's perspective in the "Man in the Moon" show, during which "the crowd erupted in applause throughout the show. From start to finish, attendees cheered as America’s story was told in great fanfare."

The actual Man in the Moon, not surprisingly, was portrayed by Beck himself and according to this report from the Salt Lake Tribune, the entire thing was as maudlin and bizarre was one would expect from an epic Glenn Beck production:

As Beck began narrating — telling a somewhat biblical version of the evolution of mankind — he took on the role of a watchful moon admiring sister Earth, calling her "Blue," and his face became superimposed upon the giant stage moon.

The moon witnessed mankind, referred to as "the beasts," become greedy and violent and lose its way.

Noah’s ark rode out the flood, followed by a Tower of Babel scenario.

Fast forward, and the Man in the Moon touched upon the evils of slavery and praised Abraham Lincoln.

Dancers illustrated man’s creation of electricity. And, with the coming of the Industrial Revolution, a giant robot in the corner of the stage began moving its arms and upper body.

War was signaled by the sound of sirens as the stage went dark and fireworks shrieked into the sky.

Images of Hitler, and the Man in the Moon told of World War II ending as an atom bomb exploded on screen.

Beck then took the stage as himself again, saying that is how the story ended, for now, but that new chapters would be written.

The audience then watched video of John F. Kennedy speak of reaching for the stars and sending men to the moon.

A visibly aged and wrinkled moon concluded with an impassioned speech about the "puzzle" that is mankind.

"I cannot tell you how your story ends, because I am not the author. You are," said the Man in the Moon. "Love, love one another. I cannot wait to see what you decide to do."

"I am your moon. And you are my beasts," the moon continued, promising to be there in mankind’s darkest hour "to remind you that on the morrow, the sun shall return."

The moon began to spin to the sound of upbeat country music, fireworks once again exploded overhead, and the show was over.

But perhaps the most amazing aspect of the show was that it opened with a flag "raising" ceremony in which "two men dressed in soldiers’ garb who were suspended in the air upside down actually 'lowered' the American flag" upside-down from the ceiling in "an effort to show that America is in distress":

Glenn Beck, Food Insurance and the American Revolution

Many of Glenn Beck’s viewers might be losing a lot of money as the price of gold plummets, thanks to Beck’s aggressive and unethical promotion of gold investment firms. But Beck’s survivalist audience shouldn’t have to worry about buying food if they also heeded his call to sign up for Food Insurance, which offers customers “great tasting, nutritious meals” as part of its “emergency food supplies.”

While reading a Food Insurance advertisement on his show today, Beck got to thinking about the Founding Fathers and the American Revolution.

Much like the Founding Fathers, Beck explained, viewers who purchase Food Insurance also know the importance and value of preparation.

Unlike Egyptians and Occupy protesters who “smoke dope, live out in a park and have sex in a tent with everybody they meet,” the Founders were willing to “sit in a room for years and study and try to figure out: What does freedom mean and how do we make people free?”

“So very few people do preparation, and that’s why there’s failure, you can cut corners but you can only get away with it for so long” Beck said. He then returned to reading the Food Insurance ad: “If trouble comes, are you and your family prepared? Food Insurance offers freeze-dried entrees or dehydrated options. There’s something for everybody and every budget; it really is good.”

Beck: Obamacare an 'Evil' Satanic Islamic Communist Conspiracy to Unleash 'Chaos' on America

Glenn Beck reacted to today’s news that the Obama administration will delay the implementation of the health care reform law’s employer mandate until 2015, saying that it is all part of a plan to “keep delaying this until the [Democratic] party is out of power.” Once the law is fully put into effect, Beck predicted, the health care system will fall into “total chaos.”

Then Beck put it all together: Obamacare must be a plot connected to Communists and Twelver Shiite Muslims, including maybe President Obama himself: “Oh my gosh, who wants chaos? Our enemies; the Weather Underground types; those who are into the Twelfth Imam— I don’t know if the president, he wasn’t born in Iran, I don’t know if they believe in the twelfth Imam where he was born, Hawaii—but they want chaos too.”

Beck even managed to link the whole thing back to abortion rights protests in Austin, Texas, where one woman said “hail Satan” into a camera.

“Everybody who is on the dark side is rooting for chaos. Who is the author of chaos? Let me go to Austin,” Beck said. “If you don’t know what side you are on right now, if you don’t know who you are actually fighting—I told you before, we are not fighting with the president of the United States, we are not fighting with the Democrats, we are fighting evil.”

Rand Paul Wants to 'Become an Illegal Immigrant,' Glenn Beck Worries He'll Be a 'Second-Class Citizen'

The far Right’s hatred of Obamacare is so great and so senseless they can use it to make two opposing arguments at the same time.

That is what has been happening as the House and Senate try to determine at what point new immigrants will be included in the Affordable Care Act. Earlier this month, ABC News reported that Republicans were willing to hold up the whole bill in order to prevent new immigrants from having access to federal health care subsidies while they work toward citizenship. The current Senate bill plan bars formerly undocumented immigrants from accessing Affordable Care Act subsidies as they work toward permanent residency; GOP Sens. Marco Rubio and Orrin Hatch have proposed an amendment to the bill that would bar those immigrants from Obamacare until five years after they get a green card.

So now, of course, the anti-immigrant Right is using that provision – put into the bill in a futile attempt to satisfy the anti-immigrant Right – to argue against the new immigration policy as a whole.

Last week, Sen. Ted Cruz  claimed that the provision amounts to “affirmative action” for “those who are here illegally.”

Sen. Rand Paul piled on today, joking with Glenn Beck, “I’m thinking about lobbying to become an illegal immigrant so I don’t have to participate in Obamacare.” Beck asserted that under the Senate’s plan, everyone who is not an undocumented immigrant will be a “second-class citizen.”

Right Wing Round-Up - 6/25/13

  • PFAW Foundation: Court Conservatives in Shelby County v. Holder Deal Terrible Blow to the Voting Rights Act. 
  • Slate: Watch as a State Senator Wages an Epic Filibuster to Block Sweeping New Abortion Restrictions.
  • Liberal America: Glenn Beck Revisits Chinese Missile Conspiracy. Has He Changed His Mind? 

Oops: Five Conservative IRS Conspiracy Theories Fall Apart

Just as the GOP’s hyperventilation and grandstanding over Benghazi turned up empty, so are their claims that the IRS has been targeting right-wing groups. New reports show that the IRS did apply extra scrutiny to groups with phrases like “Tea Party” in their names…but the agency also applied the same scrutiny to groups with “progressive” or “occupy” in their titles. This backs up an earlier story from The Atlantic which also found that liberal groups had been targeted.

Prior to these revelations, we learned that the White House had no role in the supposed targeting and that the IRS manager accused of political bias is a conservative Republican.

But for some reason we don’t think this will stop right-wing activists from alleging that President Obama directed the IRS to go after political opponents as part of his plans to create an all-powerful, totalitarian government.

The IRS story has made its way into five right-wing conspiracy theories that we don’t expect to go away any time soon, despite being totally ungrounded in reality.

1) IRS May Deny Medical Care To Conservatives

Rep. Michele Bachmann led the way in giving credence to a claim that the IRS, through Obamacare, might attempt to “deny or delay” access to medical care for conservatives. After embracing the WorldNetDaily-inspired conspiracy theory, she told Fox News that the IRS may deny or delay health care “based upon our political beliefs.” Even Rand Paul latched onto the debunked conspiracy theory.

Right on cue, James Dobson’s son Ryan alleged that his father may be denied medical treatments under Obamacare, and Janet Porter said that the IRS may use the reform law to “target individuals on whether or not they have the ability to exist as a live human being” by denying people “lifesaving treatment” based on their “political views.”

2) Obama’s The New Hitler

Glenn Beck reacted to the IRS story by warning that the government could “shut down” and “scoop up” Tea Party members much like how Adolf Hitler persecuted Jews. “This is the way totalitarian states are created,” Beck argued. “We will be remembered as the most evil nation in the history of the world, we will dwarf what Germany did.”

World Congress of Families spokesman Don Feder agreed, maintaining that “Concentration Camp Obama” may “shove you in a cattle car” and take you “‘camping’ in a very real sense” if you are part of the conservative movement, all by “using the IRS as a presidential goon squad.” Todd Starnes of Fox News even pointed to the IRS controversy to claim that conservatives “could be facing a 1930s Germany here,” while End Times radio host Rick Wiles used the IRS as proof that Obama is leading a “modern day Nazi regime” and the “Fourth Reich.”

3) Obama Committed Impeachable Offenses

Naturally, right-wing activists brought impeachment into the debate over the IRS. Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice said Obama may face the same impeachment charges as Richard Nixon as a result of the “misuse and abuse of the IRS.” Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly said that the “IRS scandal is much worse than Watergate” and agreed that “there are many reasons why Obama should be impeached.”

Texas Gov. Rick Perry similarly drew a comparison to Nixon and said that the “scandal” may “reach the level of criminal activity” and reveal “a pattern of abuse of power.” Washington Times columnist Jeffrey Kuhner went even further and asserted that Obama is “ worse than Nixon” and added it to his long list of supposedly impeachable offenses, while Alan Keyes demanded that the GOP’s “cry should be ‘IMPEACHMENT NOW!’” Not to be outdone, Glenn Beck argued that “if there aren’t impeachment hearings” then America is “already operating under tyranny.”

4) Obama Would Have Lost If It Wasn’t For The IRS

Even though conservative outside groups greatly outspent their left-leaning counterparts in the last election, the IRS controversy has led some to allege that conservatives groups were not allowed to get off the ground and that must have been why Obama won his race for re-election.

Janet Porter reasoned that “the elections were affected” because “every Tea Party group and every conservative group…weren’t allowed to exist” or “inform their members of what’s going on and what’s at stake.” John Fund of the Wall Street Journal, a champion of suppressive voter ID laws and voter purges, told Fox News that “the real voter suppression in the 2012 election was done at the IRS” and “suppressed the vote” to the point that it “may have played a role in the outcome of that very close election.”

The American Enterprise Institute’s James Pethokoukis even made the dubious claim that 5-8.5 million voters didn’t vote last year due to IRS actions. Dean Chambers, whose “unskewed” polls predicted Obama’s defeat, claimed he was right all along, alleging that the “systematic and wide-scale suppression of Tea Party and conservative activity and votes, via the IRS targeting of those groups” had “clearly denied Mitt Romney the election that [he] clearly would have won by about the very margin I predicted on November 5 of last year.”

5) Demonic Forces Behind IRS Scandal

Larry Klayman said that “felonious liberal Jews” have used the IRS to attack conservatives to undermine “our proud Judeo-Christian roots and heritage,” but televangelist James Robison took it one step further, arguing that “Satan himself” had a role: “He and his demonic forces are fiercely focusing their fury against God’s kingdom purpose and anyone committed to it. What you are witnessing daily in news reports concerning Washington’s bad practices and policies related to the gross abuse of power by the IRS, along with unconstitutional checks on the free press, reveals satanic intent to take away freedom.” Rick Wiles also saw a demonic role in the IRS pseudo-scandal, stating that the IRS is creating the “Fourth Beat as foretold by Daniel in the Holy Bible.”

Beck: Food Network Dropping Paula Deen Is McCarthyism

Conservatives seem to have developed a belief lately that the First Amendment's right to free speech also entitles one to immunity to criticism or repercussions for the things that one might say.

This theory was once again on display on Glenn Beck's television program last night when he opened with a long monologue defending the importance of the First Amendment by blasting the on-going fall-out surrounding comments made by Paula Deen, seemingly taking the position that Deen, and everyone else, ought to be able to say anything they want without having to worry about suffering any sort of consequences ... because apparently the possibility of there being ramifications for actions is nothing more than McCarthyism.

Beck literally compared the practice of "discouraging people from speaking their minds" to putting explorers like Magellan and Columbus in jail or preventing Martin Luther King from standing for civil rights, saying that the Food Network's decision not to renew Deen's contract has "contributed to the growing un-American atmosphere of fear and silence; hello, Joseph McCarthy!"

Somehow, this is all related to Nancy Pelosi being booed while speaking at the Netroots Nation conference last weekend, which Beck cited as proof that "eventually progressives run out of people to blame and they go after anyone, anyone who's not in power, and they'll go after liberals as well; welcome to the America that you've helped create":

'I'm Back!': How God Showed Up at the Tea Party Rally and Rejuvenated Glenn Beck

One week ago, Glenn Beck was utterly demoralized and told his audience to get prepared because "we are at the end."

But that was before he went to Washington to speak at the Tea Party rally that gave birth to the new civil rights movement which will "be written about in future history books" and which has now miraculously restored Beck's hope for the future because "God showed up" at the rally.

"I'm back," Beck proclaimed, "I'm back and I even think I understand why Romney lost. I'm there! This is not a suicide mission; I'm there!":

Beck: Tea Party Rally 'Is Going to be Written About in Future History Books'

As we noted yesterday, Glenn Beck now believes that Tea Party and 9/12 activists are the new leaders of the civil rights movement, so it only stands to reason that the anti-IRS/anti-immigration rally they held outside the Capitol earlier this week "is going to be written about in future history books."

Beck understood that this pronouncement might sound far-fetched, but so did his warnings of an economic collapse and the rise of the caliphate ... but that is only because Beck is just too far ahead of everyone else and so it takes time for things to develop as he predicted and people to realize that he was right all along.

And so it will be with this new civil rights movement, which everyone will understand maybe in a year from now as it becomes "a movement that our great, great grandchildren and their children will read about":

  • Finally, Glenn Beck thinks President Obama ought to be in jail.

Beck: The Tea Party Is the New Civil Rights Movement

For the last several week, Glenn Beck has been hammering away at the theme that Tea Party activists must become the new leaders of civil rights movement because they are being discriminated against, persecuted, and denied equal protection under the law by a biased and corrupt government. And he is entirely serious, claiming that even while they are becoming the victims of KKK-like intimidation, they will eventually be the force that saves this nation.

Yesterday, Beck flew to Washington, DC for the anti-IRS/anti-immigration Tea Party rally outside the Capitol where, as he explained on his television program last night, he delivered a speech explaining to the audience that "this is a civil rights movement; you may not understand it now, but believe me, you will."

Calling upon the Tea Party to "start moving as a civil rights movement," Beck announced that he is going to be working with Alveda King, the anti-gay, anti-abortion Religious Right activist niece of Martin Luther King, who will start teaching "classes that model exactly what her uncle Martin taught her to do."

"We have to be willing to have the dogs be unleashed on us," Beck declared, because "after what I saw today on the way they're handling things at the Capitol, you're not very far from having the same kind of oppression coming our way":

Glenn Beck Is Luring Christians Into Islamo-Mormon Deistic Universalism

Yesterday's TruNews radio broadcast with Rick Wiles was entirely dedicated to an interview with right-wing anti-Islam activist Walid Shoebat and his son Theodore during which the three of them attacked ... Glenn Beck!

That's right, according to the Shoebats, Beck is a practitioner of "Chrislam," meaning that he is luring his audience away from true Christianity and into a dangerous Islamo-Mormon deistic universalism with the help of Religious Right leaders such as James Robison, Franklin Graham, and David Barton.

As Theodore explained, Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, considered himself to be a second Muhammad, which is why, Walid said, LDS members will not proselytize to Muslims since "basically they have the same faith":

Walid Shoebat: Glenn Beck isn't really calling for Christianity. He lies when he says 'I'm a Christian, I believe in salvation through Jesus Christ' because he, number one, denies the Trinity; number two, he's a deist. In other words, he believes Muslims and Mormons and all the cults together, Buddhists,  believe in God and everybody should conform to this deistic view in belief in God.  Why? Because we have a more important thing to deal with and that is the salvation of the country as a nation.

Theodore Shoebat: Why is Glenn Beck so fascinated with universalism? Why does he keep pushing universalism? Because it is part of his religion.  People need to understand this about Mormonism.  Mormonism is an extreme version of Chrislam.  Joseph Smith observed the most extreme form of Islam you could ever imagine.  In 1855, the earliest leaders of Mormonism, of the Latter-Day Saints, got together specifically to exalt  the Prophet Muhammad.  Joseph Smith stated that Muhammad was a prophet of god and that Muhammad suffered just as I have suffered; he paralleled himself to Muhammad.  And in a very famous speech he made, the speech called 'Al-Koran or The Sword,' Joseph Smith stated 'in this generation, I will be the second Muhammad. Where it was in his generation the Koran or the sword,  it will be in this generation Joseph Smith or the sword.'

Walid Shoebat: The Latter-Day Saints church has sought to respect Islamic laws, that is sharia - that's the thing that Glenn Beck claims to be fighting - and traditions that prohibit conversions of Muslims to other faiths by adopting a policy of non-proselytizing in Islamic countries in the Middle East.  In other words, Mormons are not allowed to proselytize to Muslims in the Middle East.  Why? Because basically they have the same faith.

Beck: 'God Is Openly Mocked' by Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, & Anthony Weiner

Glenn Beck dedicated most of the opening monologue on his television program last night to continuing to warn against any US involvement in Syria, which inevitably led him to his giant blackboard so that he could provide another history lesson about how everything that happened leading up to World War II was rooted in hostility toward religion ... and it is happening again today, not only in Europe but in America as well.

"God is openly mocked," Beck declared, "and hedonism and darkness is being embraced" as he highlighted Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, and Anthony Weiner as evidence.

"Quite honestly America, those are the easy ones," he said, "but if you just scratch just below the surface, you and I both know evil is running amok in our country and all over the globe":

Right Wing Leftovers - 6/18/13

  • For some reason, Josh Duggar has been named Executive Director of FRC Action.
  • We should probably be prepared to hear a lot from Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory as he seems to be the Right's newest hero.
  • It is becoming increasingly obvious that "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt literlly has no idea what he is talking about most of the time.
  • Glenn Beck had been teasing that Sen. Mike Lee was going to reveal that Chief Justice John Roberts had been "intimidated" into changing his vote on health care reform but the scoop was a total bust.
  • Speaking of Beck, good luck trying to follow this explanation of how the nation needs to be governed by God's law even if it is not turned into legislation but the social contract can never violate God's law ... or something:

Kobach: Immigration Advocates Like the KKK, 'Just Not Wearing White Cloaks'

Yesterday, Glenn Beck accused the immigration reform advocates who held a peaceful protest outside the home of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach of practicing “domestic terrorism” just like the Ku Klux Klan. Today, Kobach himself appeared on Beck’s radio show and agreed with this assessment. “They’re just not wearing white cloaks, but this is exactly KKK type of intimidation,” the Kobach said.

“The left is set up on revenge,” Beck responded, “and so they’re using the tactics of those who kept them down in the past that we all tried to defeat…So they’re just changing their hood or changing their language, but it is not changing who they really are or what they’re trying to do.”

Beck also compared the demonstrators to Greece’s Golden Dawn party, a neo-Nazi group with ties to anti-immigrant hate crimes.

Kobach previously threatened to use violence against the “mob” of protesters.

Glenn Beck On Vladimir Putin, a Super Bowl Ring, and the Syrian Proxy War

Last week, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft attended a gala event where he told a story about how, back in 2005, he removed his Super Bowl ring so that he could show it to Russian president Vladimir Putin, who then allegedly pocketed it and walked out.  Kraft says he was pressured by the Bush administration to claim that he had given it to Putin as a gift, which is also what Putin's spokesperson is still claiming

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck asserted that the only reason this story came out last week is because the United States and Russia are now involved in a proxy war in Syria.

"Nothing like this happens as a coincidence," Beck declared, saying that the US is losing this war so badly that "what we do is we leak a story that he stole a Super Bowl ring you know. That's what that story is about, plain and simple":

There’s a reason so many Republican politicians seem to bring a religious fervor to their efforts to gut public institutions and social welfare spending. The modern day Religious Right draws much of its ideology from Christian Reconstructionists who teach that God gave specific duties to the government, the church, and the family. According to this theological worldview, education and taking care of the poor are the responsibility of families and churches, and it is unbiblical for the government to take on these roles. That meshes well with the view of “constitutional... MORE >

Glenn Beck is oddly obsessed about a move by the state of Washington to convert all of its same-sex domestic partnerships to marriages now that gay marriage is legal in the state.
