Beck: #YesAllWomen Is Nothing But 'Good Old Fashioned Man-Bashing'

In the wake of the murder spree carried out by Elliot Rodger, driven by his deeply and viciously misogynistic views, a #YesAllWomen hashtag was started on Twitter to highlight the fact that society largely turns a blind eye to the fact that women experience various forms of harassment, threats, and discrimination on a regular basis.

Glenn Beck, shockingly, was not particularly moved by the effort as he mockingly read some of the tweets on his television program last night and called it nothing more than "a chance for some good, old fashioned man-bashing":

Glenn Beck Reads Elliot Rodger's Manifesto: 'That Is Almost An Exact Quote From Teddy Roosevelt'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck weighed in on the murder spree carried out by Elliot Rodger last week though which he vowed to "punish all females for the crime of depriving me of sex.”

As usual, Beck placed the blame squarely on Hollywood and video games ... and progressives like Teddy Roosevelt.

Reading portions of Rodger's "manifesto" in which he declared that women "should not have the right to choose who to mate and breed with" and should all be placed in concentration camps, Beck proclaimed that "that is almost an exact quote from Teddy Roosevelt."

"It's all the progressives, communists, fascists," Beck said. "They're the ones who talk like this ... No small government person talks like this, no constitutionalist talks like this."

After co-host Pat Gray reminded Beck that it was the progressives who actually locked Americans up in concentration camps before, Beck declared that it was no coincidence that Rodger's father was involved with the film "Divergent," which is "a story about concentration camps":

For the record, Rodger's father had nothing to do with "Divergent"; he was actually second unit director on "The Hunger Games," which had nothing to do with concentration camps.

Glenn Beck Assures His Audience The Tea Party Was Not Involved In The Cochran Trespassing Incident

A few days ago, a conservative blogger in Mississippi named Clayton Kelly was arrested "after allegedly trespassing at the nursing home where Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran's wife lives and posting a picture of the Republican's spouse online without permission."

Kelly was apparently a supporter of Chris McDaniel, who is running against Cochran in the upcoming Republican primary and today, Glenn Beck invited McDaniel onto his radio program to discuss his race, during which Beck fumed that the media was falsely claiming that the Tea Party was involved in this episode.

From Beck's perspective, Kelly could not be a Tea Party member at all because his blog contained various posts attacking Beck and echoing the conspiracy theories promoted by Alex Jones.

"That was not the Tea Party," Beck said about the incident, "but the mainstream media will make it look like the Tea Party":

Interestingly, just a few hours after that very discussion, two more men were arrested in connection with this incident, one of whom is reportedly the vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party:

Two more men were arrested in connection with the video of Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-Miss.) wife, allegedly made by an apparent supporter of his primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel.

According to The Courier-Ledger, attorney Mark Mayfield, a vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party and an officer with the Central Mississippi Tea Party, and is reportedly close with McDaniel staff, was arrested Thursday by the Madison Police Department in connection with the case.

Glenn Beck Lashes Out At Those Attacking Liberty U For Allowing Him To Speak

Last month, Glenn Beck was invited to deliver a Convocation message at Liberty University where, in addition to delivering a prophetic message that God was coming to settle scores, he also preached Mormon theology, which did not sit well with certain Religious Right activists, such as Janet Mefferd.

On his radio broadcast today, Beck lashed out at "people who claim to be followers of Christ" in "the so-called Christian Right" who are attacking Liberty U for allowing him to speak, saying that they are progressives and "there is no difference between you and the people who are trying to run other people out of the square."

"You think you're standing for something," Beck said, "when indeed you're standing for hate and bigotry":

Once Again, Glenn Beck Falsely Claims Our Founding Documents Came Out Of The Book Of Deuteronomy

The most infuriating thing about watching Glenn Beck's radio and television programs for four hours every day is listening to him constantly assert that The Blaze "is the only network dedicated to the truth" while he personally spews lies and misinformation over its airwaves day after day.

The worst part is that Beck constantly repeats lies on the air well after his claims have been debunked, as he did on Friday when he falsely asserted once again that  "thirty percent of everything in our founding documents comes from one book, the Book of Deuteronomy":

As Chris Rodda explained back in 2010 when David Barton first made this claim on Beck's program, this false statement is based on a 1984 study by a University of Houston professor who found that, among the documents published during the founding era, the Bible was the most frequently cited source, but that was largely because "most of these citations come from sermons reprinted as pamphlets; hundreds of sermons were reprinted during the era, amounting to at least 10% of all pamphlets published."

As Barton said back in 2010, 34% of the identifiable quotes from the thousands of document that were published during the founding era came from the Bible and Deuteronomy was the most frequently cited book among those quotes.

But Beck utterly misrepresents this time and again in order to claim that a one-third of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence came directly out of the Book of Deuteronomy.

It is entirely untrue, but Beck continues to repeat it over and over again while simultaneously portraying himself as a paragon of truth, honesty, and integrity.

In fact, later in this very same segment, Beck vowed to "always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday."

Apparently, that vow does not apply during the hours when he is broadcasting.

Paranoia-Rama: 'Dr. Karl Rove,' Beyoncé's Demons & Your Daily Distraction From Benghazi

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

While you may have been busy reading about the rally to overthrow the Obama administration, the right-wing conspiracy machine was in fine fashion this week:

5. Nigerian Kidnappings Are Just A Distraction From Benghazi

Allen West, who once was actually an elected member of Congress, thinks all the attention to Boko Haram’s kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls is a bit “fishy.” Why? Benghazi, obviously: “Are we witnessing an Obama ‘Wag the Dog’ moment with Boko Haram in Nigeria? I say yes. Consider all the scandals facing the Obama administration, especially Benghazi and the Select Committee.”

The Republican politician and Fox News contributor previously thought the controversy surrounding Don Sterling’s racist remarks was also ginned up to distract from the 2012 Benghazi attack.

Erik Rush, a columnist for WorldNetDaily, went one step farther and alleged that Obama is “ideologically (and perhaps covertly) supporting” Boko Haram’s actions in order to distract the public and the media from Benghazi.

4. Alex Jones Is On The Case

After Rep. Tim Murphy, a Republican from Pennsylvania, introduced a bill that sought to reform the way the federal government addresses mental health services, Alex Jones’ website InfoWars dubbed it a “diabolical legislative package.” InfoWars pundit Jon Rappoport said that the legislation would require almost all children to take “psychiatric meds.”

If it’s fully implemented, you’ll witness a sea-change in society, in the coming decade. Diagnoses of mental disorders and consequent drugging, already widely in effect, will become as common and ordinary as people eating at fast food restaurants.

And the population will eventually forget things were ever different.

“Hey, can I borrow your Valproate? My son took my bottle because he ran out.”

Ultimately, Rappoport believes the bill will give the federal government “a monopoly of the mind.”

3. Karl Rove Is Just Asking The Question: Does Hillary Clinton Have Brain Damage?

While many conservative activists claimed Hillary Clinton faked a concussion to get out of congressional testimony over Benghazi attack, now Karl Rove has reportedly suggested that the former Secretary of State has brain damage.

While Rove denied making the reported comments… he demanded that the media ask questions about Clinton’s health anyway – and if they don’t get the answers they like, then it’s probably a conspiracy.

Of course, “Bush’s Brain” has quite a history of spreading rumors that his political opponents have mental health issues. Who knew that Rove had the medical qualifications to talk about such issues? And if you don’t take his baseless accusations seriously, then you are just a biased liberal journalist!

2. Is Beyoncé Possessed By Demons?

Not willing to wait for “Dr. Rove’s” diagnosis, Religious Right radio host Kevin Swanson forged ahead and asked if Beyoncé Knowles is possessed by demons.

Swanson wouldn’t be the first person to allege that the musician is possessed, as American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer made a similar charge back in January.

1. Glenn Beck vs. The World

Yesterday Glenn Beck explained the reason the Obama administration has all but ignored him since he left Fox News: Because he is a modern-day Martin Luther King Jr. And Dietrich Bonhoeffer. And Nelson Mandela. And Obi Wan.

Glenn Beck Has 'The Smartest Audience ... Ever In Television'

Over the last several weeks, Glenn Beck's studio in Texas has been undergoing renovations all while Beck continues his personal transformation into the self-proclaimed prophet of a doomsday cult, which has resulted in more and more of his nightly television program featuring conversations about God while consisting of footage shot during his morning staff meetings, most of which amounts to little more than the staff discussing the same topics that Beck and his co-hosts discussed on the radio show earlier in the day.

Apparently, this new God-focused and largely redundant format is not sitting particularly well with a number of Blaze subscribers who have been writing to the network wanting to know just what is going on, resulting in Beck dedicating the opening of his show last night to addressing the criticisms that have been flooding in from viewers.

In typically cryptic Beck fashion, he explained to his viewers that both he and his network are undergoing massive renovations at the moment because God has huge miracles in store for them both. Unfortunately, God has not given Beck permission to talk about them just quite yet "but that's not crazy," he assured his audience.

But Beck knows that he doesn't necessarily need to explain every little thing to them, he told the viewers, because his audience is "the smartest audience ... ever in television."

Beck said that he knows that his audience will stand by him during this time of upheaval because his network is the only one "dedicated to the truth and changing the culture," which is why it has come under attack from "principalities that do not want us to succeed," by which he means demonic forces:

'Strike Me Down': Glenn Beck Is A Modern Day MLK/Bonhoeffer/Mandela/Obi Wan

Glenn Beck began his radio program today by discussing the incident in which a local Dallas TV host walked off of her show yesterday during a heated discussion over the appropriateness of ESPN showing Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

Beck said that he didn't want to see stuff like that on television, nor does he want to see straight couples making out either and overall he used the issue to decry the "sexualization of our culture" which culminated in him declaring that just as gay people say they are born that way, he was likewise "born a spiritual person" who is now being persecuted for refusing to be silent about his religious faith.

Declaring that he knows that God exists because last week he experienced a "full-fledged miracle," Beck declared that he will never be silent about it even if it costs him his life.

"Because I know God lives, you will have to imprison me," he proclaimed. "You want me to shut up? I won't shut up."

Somehow, that prompted Beck to speculate that the reason the Obama administration has pretty much ignored him since he left Fox News is because they know that he is a Martin Luther King/Dietrich Bonhoeffer/Nelson Mandela-like figure that they had better not screw with because he is willing to die for his beliefs.

"Imprison me," Beck said, looking directly into the camera, "go ahead, imprison me. I will not sit down, I will not shut up. I won't. I will not conform. I will not comply. Period."

"If I may quote Obi Wan," he concluded, "strike me down. Strike me down. I will become far more powerful than you can imagine":

David Benham Explains His Love For Gays By Claiming The Homosexual 'Agenda' Is Led By Satan

It has now been one week since we first wrote a post highlighting the anti-gay and anti-choice activism of David Benham, who was slated to host a reality TV show on HGTV with his twin brother Jason. After HGTV announced that it would not move forward with the brothers' planned reality show, the Benhams hit the conservative media circuit to claim they were the victims of a "smear campaign" filled with "complete lies,"  though neither the Benhams nor anyone else has actually bothered to explain how anything we originally reported about them was in any way false.

The bulk of the defense offered for the last week by David and Jason Benham of their past activism has been that they do not hate gay people but only hate "homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation,"which is pretty much the defense offered by most of the anti-gay bigots we monitor on this blog. David Benham previously alleged that the "homosexual agenda," along with abortion rights and Islam, is controlled by "demonic forces and agendas."

Last night, they took that talking point onto Glenn Beck's television program where they repeatedly asserted that they are not at war with gay people, but are rather engaged in a spiritual war against Satan and demonic forces that are out to silence Christianity.

"It's a spiritual fight," Jason Benham said. "From the beginning of time, it was God and there was the Devil and both of them use people for their own purposes." Jason then recalled how Jesus had rebuked Peter by declaring "get behind me, Satan!" in Mark 8 to demonstrate this, as David added that it is all part of Satan's efforts to suppress the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Later in the discussion, Jason added that they are not attacking "the homosexual community" because the real issue is "God versus the Devil."

"There is a small minority of people in this world, heterosexual and homosexual, that buy into the idea of this agenda that wants to silence people," he said.

David added that, as Christians, they are "called to restrain evil so that good may flourish" and that is the role they are trying to play in America by taking a stand against the "demonic agenda to suppress the truth":

Paranoia-Rama: Joe Biden's Concentration Camps, Comcast Sharia Law & DC Drone Attack

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

It seems conservatives will never stop linking the 2010 health care reform law to the Holocaust or prophesying the rise of Sharia law in the US, not that any of such issues will matter anyway after President Obama attacks Washington D.C. in a drone strike!

5. Obama Will Launch Drone Strike On DC

Operation American Spring is hoping to bring anywhere from 10 million to 30 million people to Washington D.C. next month for an event the group thinks will force President Obama out of office.

One Operation American Spring organizer, Terry Trussell, believes that President Obama takes the threat so seriously that he may launch a drone strike on the nation’s capital to “get rid of” the protesters.

4. National Mall ‘Shrine To Abortion’

Religious Right groups failed badly in their attempt to block House approval of the National Women’s History Museum, insisting that they would only support the museum if its backers appointed a right-wing board chair.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., one of two women to vote against approval, alleged that the museum would “enshrine the radical feminist movement that stands against the pro-life movement, the pro-family movement and the pro-traditional family movement” and build an “ideological shrine to abortion” on the National Mall.

Ironically, the museum actually profiles conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly … and Bachmann herself.

3. Obamacare Just Like The Holocaust

Nothing says “Holocaust” like signing up people for health insurance through market-based exchanges, at least according to Tennessee GOP state senator Stacey Campfield. “Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory [sic] sign ups for ‘train rides’ for Jews in the 40s,” the Republican lawmaker wrote on his blog.

Campfield eventually offered a non-apology in which he regretted that people simply aren’t smart enough to understand his point:

I regret that some people miss the point of my post. It was not to offend. It was to warn. To draw attention to Obamacare and the slippery slope that I see occurring in the lives of myself, my constituents, and the rest of the country with the continued taking of freedom by the federal government.

In no way was my post meant to diminish or detract from the pain, suffering and loss of human life that occurred during this dark time in human history. Instead the post was meant to draw attention to the loss of freedom that we are currently experiencing. I stand by my steadfast opposition to Obamacare.

2. Joe Biden, Concentration Camp Guard

It should come as no surprise that Republican lawmakers are linking Obamacare to the Holocaust, since conservative movement leaders like Glenn Beck frequently insist that Democratic leaders are just itching to put everybody in concentration camps.

Beck went on a rant this week about a White House Correspondents Dinner sketch in which Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, playing her character on “Veep,” joined Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi at a tattoo parlor. This of course prompted Beck to allude to the Holocaust: “Why are they getting tattoos?” Beck asked. “Don’t they know that they’re the ones that are going to be running the camps? They don’t get the tattoos, they give the tattoos.”

1. Comcast Practicing Sharia Law

Speaking of Beck, his favorite congressman Rep. Louie Gohmert did the talk show host’s bidding during a congressional hearing this week on the merger between Comcast and Time Warner.

There are many legitimate concerns about the potential merger, but the Texas Republican made himself a laughingstock when he dedicated his time to accusing Comcast of snubbing Beck’s network, The Blaze, in favor of Al Jazeera America, which he said wants “to get their Sharia law push into the United States.”

When a Comcast representative denied Gohmert’s accusations, Gohmert suggested the representative may have been be perjuring himself.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/7/14

  • Glenn Beck says that he has never been as infatuated by a candidate as he is by Matt Bevin because "he is a remarkable, remarkable man."
  • Speaking of Beck, he thinks that House Speaker John Boehner selected Rep. Trey Gowdy to lead the Benghazi committee so that he can thrown him under the bus when the whole thing backfires.
  • The hatemongering, anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church continues to lose members.
  • John Freshwater, the right-wing public school science teacher who lost his job for teaching creationism, is taking his case to the Supreme Court.
  • Finally, Jim Garrow is fed up with "the divine right of black folks with big government checks."

Beck: 'We Are Just Begging To Be Destroyed'

As we have noted before, Glenn Beck seems to be incapable of understanding that not everything posted on The Huffington Post's website represents the views of The Huffington Post since he continues to attribute the views expressed in random blog posts published there by users to The Huffington Post itself.

Given that Beck's own The Blaze website has the exact same feature, you'd think that Beck would understand this simple fact, but you'd be wrong as he has spent the last few days railing against some random blog post published on The Huffington Post that argues that "adultery may be inevitable" and so it might be "time to change our views of marriage and adultery."

To Beck, this random blog post is further evidence that we are a society just begging to be destroyed by God.

"Good God Almighty," Beck said during his morning meeting, "are we a society begging to be destroyed! We are just begging to be destroyed. This is the recipe of destruction":

Beck: 'There's A War On God'

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck reacted to the news that the Supreme Court had upheld the practice of delivering sectarian prayers at government meetings by wondering how we, as a nation, had even gotten to the point where this was up for debate, warning that America is just one Supreme Court justice away from completely losing the right to pray in public.

"There's a war on God," Beck warned, telling his audience that when future generations look back on the United States and wonder where it all went wrong, they will point to the vote held during the 2012 Democratic National Convention on whether to reinsert a reference to God and to identify Jerusalem as the capital of Israel into the official platform as "the turning point where nobody listened."

"I know this," Beck said, "going to war with God usually doesn't work out too well":

Glenn Beck Says Going To Correspondents Dinner Was Like Being 'Raped,' Warns of Concentration Camps Led By Biden And Pelosi

Glenn Beck said on his show today that while he hasn’t actually seen the White House Correspondents Dinner video with Julia Louis-Dreyfus featuring Joe Biden, Michelle Obama and John Boehner, he knows for a fact that it wasn’t funny and is outraged that his own website, The Blaze, ran an article with the headline: “Biden Mocks Himself in Hilarious Comedy Skit for White House Correspondents Dinner.”

Beck insisted that the video he had not seen was definitely “not hilarious” as “only the blind, deaf, dumb or those in the administration think it is hilarious.”

He proceeded to discuss a clip from the video in which Louis-Dreyfus and Biden walk in on Pelosi — whom Beck mocks as wearing “a giant clown jumpsuit” — in a tattoo parlor. “Why are they getting tattoos?” Beck asked. “Don’t they know that they’re the ones that are going to be running the camps? They don’t get the tattoos, they give the tattoos,” he said, alluding to the tattoos that prisoners were given at Nazi concentration camps.

Beck also said he went to the White House Correspondents Dinner once but will never return: “My wife and I left and said, should we go and take a shower because I feel like I’ve just been raped.”

“It’s an awful, awful experience, filled with just some of the worst people ever assembled in one building.”

He likened his dislike of the correspondents’ event it to his harsh criticism of the movie Noah, saying that people in the film industry now fear his disapproval. The movie was a box office success.

Right Wing Round-Up - 5/2/14

  • Scott Kaufman @ Raw Story: Alabama’s chief justice: Buddha didn’t create us so First Amendment only protects Christians. 

Extremist Radio Host At Bundy Ranch Harasses Local Reporter, Accuses Glenn Beck Of Starting A 'Race War'

It should come as no surprise to learn that Pete Santilli, an Internet radio host best known for wishing he could shoot Hillary Clinton “right in the vagina” and helping to organize last year’s “Truckers For the Constitution” rally, has spent the last couple of weeks broadcasting live from Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Nevada.

Last Friday, Santilli filmed the press conference at which Bundy attempted to explain that his view that black people were better off under slavery isn’t racist. After Bundy spoke, Santilli announced that “somehow” the Bureau of Land Management had used the media to “hijack” the press conference by “injecting race and dividing us.”

So, naturally, Santilli decided to confront a local TV reporter who had apparently questioned Bundy on his views about race, drawing the attention of Bundy supporters standing nearby.

“Who do you work for?” Santilli demanded of the reporter, who appears to be Antonio Castelan of Channel 3 New. “Do you believe that the media is state-run?” When Castelan responded that “as a Mexican-American” he didn’t think his questioning on race was biased, Santilli hounded him: “Why do you believe you need to inject Mexican-Americanism into your line of questioning?”

“As a Mexican-American you should know that we’re defending your rights, and you’re working for the state-run media, and you should know that, especially by the bias in the line of your questioning,” he yelled as Castelan walked away, hounded by Bundy supporters. “You’re not serving the American public and you do not deserve even First Amendment constitutional rights, sir!”

Later, talking to another reporter, Santilli accused Glenn Beck, who has criticized the Bundy ranch protester, of promoting a “race war” on behalf of the United Nations’ Agenda 21. That is surprising, given that Beck has written an entire book warning about the very same Agenda 21 conspiracy theory that he is being accused of promoting. 

'Your Electricity Is People!': Glenn Beck Is Wrong Again

Last week, Glenn Beck was very upset about reports that the biomedical waste that was being burned at an Oregon waste-to-energy facility included the remains of aborted fetuses, comparing it on his radio show to the science fiction film "Soylent Green" while screaming "electricity is people, your electricity is people!"

It was, for Beck, simply further proof that America is in a moral nosedive and will soon become "the most horrific nation on the face of the earth" as he grew somber and beseeched his listeners to "go off the grid" if this is how our nation's energy is being produced.

"Do not be a part of that. Is there anything more evil than that?"

Now, a week later, the facility at the center of the controversy is speaking out and asserting that the report was "completely false":

A waste-to-energy garbage burning operation in the tiny unincorporated community of Brooks made global news last week, after allegations surfaced that the plant was processing aborted fetuses from Canada — despite express denials by the facility’s operator ... The allegation that aborted babies were being burned for electricity sparked a frenzy of media attention, being picked up by hundreds of outlets across the country and the world.

But as it turned out, the accusation was completely erroneous, according to Jill Stueck, vice president of marketing and communications for Covanta Energy Corporation, the company that owns and operates the plant in Brooks.

“It’s not just inaccurate; it’s completely false,” she said.

Stueck said “fetal tissue” refers to other biological material associated with birth, such as umbilical cords and placentas — not fetuses. Fetuses would be classified as “human remains” and are in a different category.

“This is a mixing-together of terms that mean completely different things,” she said. “We’re not burning babies.”

Stueck said she was as shocked as anyone when she saw the news last week.

“It’s a horrifying, horrible concept,” she said. “I was like, ‘If this is true, I’m alarmed. This is my company, and this is not something I would support.’”

Will Beck, who prides himself on always owning up to his mistakes (despite the fact that he actually hardly ever does so) correct the record?

We won't be holding our breath.

Beck: America Is Engaged In Modern-Day Baal Worship

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Glenn Beck restated his belief that the United States is engaged in wholesale Baal worship without even knowing it.

As Beck sees it, ancient Baal worshipers engaged in sexual perversion and child sacrifice all in order to please their god and receive his blessings and that is exactly what America is doing today where abortion is legal and sexual perversion is running rampant.

"The signs are always the same," Beck said. "We are practicing the same thing."

"Who are we anymore?," he wondered. "It's sexual excess for anything goes at any time and the more, the better ... You have child sacrifice - you don't want your child after having the orgies, you don't want your child, don't worry, you can just sacrifice to the god - we have that through Planned Parenthood. We have sexual excess beyond imagination just twenty years ago."

And just like the ancient Ball worshipers, we are doing all of this in order to get decent weather.

"And what were they sacrificing for?," Beck asked. "They were sacrificing so the weather patterns would be good. Think of that. This is exactly what we're doing! Exactly!"

We have no idea what he is talking about.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/29/14

  • "History is repeating itself": Glenn Beck says that Alex Jones' attacks on him are just like Malcolm X's attacks on Martin Luther King.
  • Speaking of Jones, Cliff Kincaid can probably expect to become his next target after he called Jones and his followers a bunch of lunatics who are "poisoning the minds of many conservatives and Tea Party members."
  • Is anyone surprised that three graduates of Liberty University Law School are serving as law clerks for Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore and played a key role in crafting the court's recent abortion decision?
  • David Barton and Sarah Palin will both be speaking at a fundraiser for a Christian school in October. That ought to be enlightening.
  • Similarly, Mat Staver and Kamal Saleem will be speaking at the American Decency Association’s summer conference.
  • Finally, the candidate who ran an ad mocking John Boehner’s "electile dysfunction" has lost his job teaching at a Christian college as a result.

Beck: 'Hillary Clinton Will Be Having Sex With A Woman On The White House Desk If It Becomes Popular'

On the radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts spent a segment attacking politicians who are now announcing their support for gay marriage after having publicly opposed it just a few years ago. Saying that if the issue really is "the civil rights issue of our day," politicians should have been willing to stand on principle for it when the issue was unpopular instead of opposing it then only to endorse it now that polls show growing public support.

Among the targets of Beck's ire is Hillary Clinton, whom he declared would soon announce that she is a lesbian if it will help her get elected in 2016.

"I'm telling you," Beck said, "Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk if it becomes popular":

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 >

Ted Cruz announced last week that his new “top priority” in Washington is to end President Obama’s deferred action program for DREAMers and start deporting undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. But to show that he is approaching his new top priority in a compassionate way, Cruz made a stop at the border this weekend to help Glenn Beck hand out his truckload of teddy bears and soccer balls to children who have come to the southern border fleeing violence in Central America.

Last week, the city of Salem, Massachusetts canceled a contract that it had with a local Christian college because the school prohibits "homosexual behavior." Since 2008, Salem had allowed the college to maintain a local landmark in exchange for being able to use it for educational purposes. After the contract was ended, Glenn Beck's The Blaze website wrote about the decision, which resulted in Salem's mayor being inundated with calls after the number to her office was posted in the comments section of The Blaze article. The mayor then wrote a Facebook post noting that... MORE >

Glenn Beck and his co-hosts were decidedly unimpressed by yesterday's White House press briefing at which press secretary Josh Earnest attempted to make the case the President Obama's foreign policy has been working to bring "tranquility" to the world. When challenged to defend this assertion, Earnest repeatedly cited the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons stockpile, which Beck and his co-hosts mocked since obviously everyone knows that nothing ever came of that, with Beck saying that the only way Syria has gotten rid of any of its weapons is by shipping them over...

It came as no surprise that following Bob Barr's recent attack on David Barton during a Republican primary debate, Glenn Beck spent several segments on his radio program today defending Barton, even bringing Barton onto the show so that he could blame the attacks on "a bunch of George Soros-funded bloggers and groups."
