Right Wing Leftovers - 1/22/14

  • Ralph Reed will soon unveil a new book, which Mike Huckabee promises will contain “the ultimate answer to what ails America.” 
  • Televangelist Rick Joyner is convinced that the “overwhelming evidence shows that the 2012 election was not a legitimate election.” 
  • MassResistance’s Brian Camenker wants the three openly gay Republican congressional candidates out of the GOP. 
  • Lastly, the Klansman who wanted to kill Muslims with a “weaponized radiation device” has been indicted.

Glenn Beck Thinks Demonic Forces Are Keeping His TV Network Off Cable

Glenn Beck has a new theory as to why cable providers are refusing to carry his television network, The Blaze. No, it’s not because his previous job at Fox News lost viewers and scared off advertisers: it’s because of demons!

Beck shared his theory with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on Washington Watch yesterday, where he was promoting his “Get The Blaze Day of Action” campaign in which he urges fans to call their cable providers and demand they add Beck’s news channel The Blaze.

Beck told Perkins that The Blaze is the only “non-partisan” and godly network available. “What’s missing is a very small government voice that also truly respects God,” Beck said.

For instance, he said, The Blaze will report miracles as true: “I refuse to read on my own website or see on my own network the phrase, ‘Some believe this is a miracle.’ If we’re going to print it or we’re going to say it, it’s either a miracle or it’s not. I believe in miracles. Do we believe in miracles or not? As a company we do, as a nation we used to and if we’re going to survive, we must.”

Later, Beck suggested that demonic powers are trying to keep his television network off of cable, telling Perkins, “You also have other forces at work that aren’t necessarily earthly forces that would like to see voices silenced.”

We should also note that Glenn Beck gave this interview to the enthusiastically anti-gay Perkins just one day after he insisted that he doesn’t “know anybody who is anti-gay.”

Beck: Bill Nye Is Like Those Who Tried To Silence Galileo

On his television broadcast last night, Glenn Beck again dedicated his opening monologue to decrying Governor Andrew Cuomo's recent comment that "extreme conservatives ... have no place in the state of New York," warning that Cuomo is on the wrong side of history and will be looked back upon with shame by future generations.

But it is not just Cuomo who is on the wrong side of history; so are supporters of Common Core and even Bill Nye, because, according to Beck, his opposition to teaching Creationism makes him no different from those who tried to silence Galileo:

Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Glenn Beck

There can be no better demonstration of Glenn Beck's raging hypocrisy than the perfect example he inadvertently provided on his television program last night.

Extremely disturbed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's statement that "extreme conservatives ... have no place in the state of New York," Beck dedicated his entire opening monologue last night to warning that this is just the sort of rhetoric that led to the Holocaust and declaring that "if this is the way that America is going, then I renounce my citizenship."

"If this is what America is going to become," Beck said, "I don't want to be an American any more":

During his monologue, Beck said that it is never right to banish a group of people simply based on what they believe and that any leader who suggest doing so ought to be widely denounced by people on all sides of the political spectrum.

So, of course, Beck followed up that passionate monologue with a segment in which he interviewed none other than John Hagee, who has declared on multiple occasions that atheists are not wanted in America and should get on a plane and leave the country:

After spending his entire twenty minute monologue decrying those who say that people holding certain beliefs are not welcome in America, Beck then sat down to interview a man who has, on multiple occasions, done the very thing he just spent his entire monologue denouncing and Beck said nothing ... other than strongly encouraging his viewers to donate to Hagee's organization.

What Exactly Is Glenn Beck's Definition Of 'Anti-Gay'?

Glenn Beck apparently lives in complete isolation from the world around him because there is no other way to explain how he can go about decrying the anti-gay fascism that is rising in Russia on his radio broadcast yesterday while simultaneously declaring that "I don't know anybody who is anti-gay, at least not any of my friends."

We have no idea what Beck's definition of "anti-gay" must be if it doesn't apply to the people that he surrounds himself with since, as we pointed out last week, his good friend Ken Hutcherson was probably best known for being a vehemently anti-gay activist who once called for a ban the promotion of homosexuality.

And let's not forget that Rabbi Daniel Lapin, whom has appeared on Beck's show numerous times, has said that "barbarism has sex in the canal through which dead, useless, waste material is excreted" and declared that people with AIDS should have been rounded-up and quarantined during the early days of the AIDS crisis.

And what about Beck's good friend David Barton, who has said that gay sex should be regulated by the government and asserted that it is a sign that a nation is going through a spiritual revival when it stops tolerating homosexuality. Barton has predicted that gay marriage will lead to people marrying dogs and horses and said that it doesn't matter what the Supreme Court rules, homosexuality ought to always remain illegal. Repeatedly declaring that homosexuality is "an aberration" that "violates the laws of nature," Barton has also proclaimed it to be "reprehensible" and "disgusting" and stated that science will never find a cure for AIDS because the disease is God's punishment for those who engage in "shameful sexual acts."

Barton also has close ties to rabidly anti-gay activist Scott Lively and even spoke at a fundraiser for Lively's group. Lively, of course, has been instrumental in spreading the Religious Right's anti-gay animus all over the world and took partial credit for the crackdown in Russia, declaring it to be "one of the proudest achievements of my career."

In fact, just about the entire Religious Right movement in America has praised Russia's anti-gay laws, admitting that the laws passed in Russia are exactly the sort of "public policy that we've been advocating."

Beck brings anti-gay activists on to his radio and television programs with shocking regularity and is close friends with several people who perfectly represent exactly what it means to be "anti-gay."

But Beck declares that he doesn't even know people who are anti-gay, which raises the question of just what his definition of the term could entail if none of his good friends meet it.

Another Helpful Lesson From Glenn Beck: 'There Is No Retirement Community For The Animal World'

Every once in a while, Glenn Beck delivers an extended monologue on his radio show that quickly degenerates into an incoherent stream-of-consciousness jumble of whatever talking points happen to be floating around in his head, resulting in utterly perplexing segments like this one from yesterday's radio program.

Beck was initially talking about the need to create a society in which every person had maximum freedom to succeed or fail but were also required to take personal responsibility for the consequences of their own failure or success. Somehow that morphed into some point how big government "progressives" like President Obama and Newt Gingrich and the Democrats and the Republicans all embrace "Satan's plan" to create a system in which nobody has to take personal responsibility because they are controlled by the government.

"That is Satan, man," Beck said, before then going off on a tangent based on Rabbi Daniel Lapin's claim that God doesn't want people to retire, which is why the word "retirement" doesn't appear in the Bible. In fact, Beck explained, there is no natural right to retire at all because that is a human concept.

"Do you see the older lions going off to a retirement community?" Beck asked. "They're eaten. That's what happens; they're eaten. There is no retirement community for the animal world":

Beck: Obama Or Christie Would Totally Bomb America If It Served Their Purposes

During yesterday's morning meeting, Glenn Beck told his staff that he wasn't sure that President Obama or perhaps a future President Chris Christie would oppose government-orchestrated false flag attacks on the United States if such attacks served their political purposes.

Citing Operation Northwoods, a proposed series of false flag attacks against the United States designed to provide justification for military action against Cuba back in 1962 that was ultimately rejected by President Kennedy, Beck said that if such a plan was offered to someone like Barack Obama or Chris Christie today, they would endorse it.

"Is anybody sitting here telling me," Beck said, "that Chris Christie or Barack Obama would say that? If it served their purposes, ends justify the means, I'm not sure Operation Northwoods doesn't happen":

Right Wing Leftovers - 1/15/14

  • Rick Green wishes Congress would impeach President Obama: "I realize the liberal Harry Reid Senate would never convict him on impeachment charges. But as long as Congress sanctions his actions through silence, we slide further and further down the road to the very tyranny we declared independence from nearly 237 years ago."
  • FRC declares that "as the American people are given time to experience the actual consequences of redefining marriage, we are seeing the public debate and opposition to the redefinition of natural marriage intensify."
  • Gee, we can't imagine why "Coach" Dave Daubenmire has repeatedly been fired from his position as a football coach.
  • This is what passes for news on Bryan Fischer's radio program: an interview with a guy who claims to have been arrested several times as the victim of harassment by gay people.
  • Finally, Glenn Beck explains that people have a natural right to defend themselves because bears do.

Beck: Obamacare Is A Violation Of The Separation Of Church And State

Shortly before issuing his warning that, in the future, Christians will be hunted down and oppressed by gay activists, Glenn Beck explained, as only he can, that Obamacare is a religion and therefore a violation of the separation of church and state.

As Beck sees it, mandating that citizens purchase health insurance is essentially requiring "tithing to their church; the church of man, the church of Washington, DC."

"They are making you pay tithing," Beck said, "and bow down to that God and if not, you are an illegal citizens. That is what they were talking about with the separation of church and state. You are not forced into any man's belief. That's the difference. And here we have a group of people, these fascists - let's start calling these progressives what they are: they are fascists":

Beck Warns That, Sixty Five Years From Now, Gay Activists Will Be Arresting Christians

Glenn Beck had a truly amazing segment on his radio broadcast today in which he played a fifty five year old audio clip of some district attorney in Florida sternly warning an audience of young people not to engage in homosexuality because they would be found out and arrested.

After playing the clip, Beck asserted that the man featured in the clip was "a monster" and that nobody today would ever dream of saying anything like that.

Oh really? Maybe Beck ought to take a look around our archives featuring post after post of contemporary Religious Right leaders calling for homosexuality to be criminalized in America and praising foreign governments for implementing draconian anti-gay laws in their countries. Heck, even Beck's best friend David Barton has said that homosexuality should be illegal and regulated by the government.

Most ironic of all is the fact that Beck said this while wearing a hat in memory of his good friend Ken Hutcherson, who recently passed away, who was probably best knows for being a vehemently anti-gay activist who once called for a ban the promotion of homosexuality.

But then Beck took a step further and warned that if America continues on its current course, sixty five years from now it will be progressives and gay activists who will be delivering statements like this to Christians, vowing to track them down wherever they are and toss them in prison:

Beck And Crew Have A Good Laugh Over The Absurd Idea That People Should Know Who Malala Yousafzai Is

On the radio program this morning, Glenn Beck and co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere were discussing a story on The Blaze about people who are angry that Margaret Thatcher was included in a Microsoft commercial "Celebrating the Heroic Women of 2013."

Gray responded that he was outraged that someone like Thatcher, who is "one of the greatest women of the past century," was featured along side someone like Malala Yousafzai.

"I've never heard of Malala Yousafzai," Gray said, sneeringly. "Who is that?"

Neither Beck nor Burguiere really seemed to have any idea who she was either, as the best that they could come up with was that she was some Pakistani "activist for schools" and that there was some tragedy  ... or something.

Gray was not impressed, saying sarcastically "that's a cause we've all been screaming about for how long."

That eventually prompted Burguiere to jokingly mock Gray for being "so stupid" that he didn't know who Malala Yousafzai is as they all laughed and laughed over the idea that it even mattered:

Yousafzai is, of course, the young woman who was shot in the head by the Taliban back in 2012 over her activism on behalf of the rights of women and education and has since become a global icon for human rights.

But why would three grown men holding jobs requiring them spend hours a day talking about politics and international affairs on a national broadcast be expected to know anything at all about something as insignificant as that?

Beck Foresees A Dire Google/Attack Of The Clones/Terminator Future

It is no secret that Glenn Beck is terrified by the future of technology and especially the inevitable rise of Terminator-like machines which is probably only a few years away.

Beck's terror is only growing more acute amid reports that Google is buying up robotics companies because that, coupled with the supposed systematic efforts to remove Christianity from the military, has him convinced that the world is hurtling toward an Attack-of-the-Clones-like nightmare:

Right Wing Leftovers - 1/10/14

  • Good point, Gary Bauer: "Ted Kennedy can drive a woman off a bridge and go on to serve decades in the Senate and be hailed as a courageous leader. But if a Republican shuts down a bridge, the left is ready to breakout the pitchforks."
  • It is time for the church to start preparing for the fall of America.
  • Eugene Delgaudio's Public Advocate will be protesting Terry McAuliffe's inauguration.
  • Speaking of Delgaudio, you would think that, at some point, the voters in Loudoun County would grow tired of being embarrassed by him and vote him out of office.
  • Glenn Beck's public opposition to throwing gays into the ovens causing him to lose supporters.
  • Finally, speaking of Beck, we genuinely have no idea what this latest conspiracy theory is that he promotes at the beginning of this clip.

Beck: 'We Are The New Revolutionaries'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck highlighted a large piece of artwork that was recently installed in his network headquarters representing his David vs. Goliath fight against the mainstream media as depicted by a giant New York Times figure seeking to crush a Beck's TheBlaze, which is armed only with a slingshot:

The image really appealed to Beck because, as he explained, "we are the new revolutionaries."

"These guys are 'the man,' Beck said, referring to outlets such as the Times and the Huffington Post. "They have all of the power. They have all of the tools. They have all of the money. They have all of the media. We're the little guy. We're David, they're Goliath. The little guy wins, but we have to stop acting and looking and sounding like the establishment because we're not. We are anti-establishment. I am proud to say it: I am anti-establishment":

Beck: 'We Get Our Laws From The Laws Of Moses'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck spent a segment complaining about government-provided subsidies to purchase health insurance under Obamacare, declaring that such subsidies are nothing more than theft and are therefore fundamentally immoral.

Somehow, the immorality of these subsidies prompted Beck to start railing against the effort by a group of Satanists to place a monument outside the state capitol in Oklahoma, declaring that it is okay for monument of the Ten Commandments to be placed on government grounds because that is where we get out laws.

"I'm sorry, but we are a Christian-Judeo nation," Beck said. "We are based on Judeo-Christian values. That is not a religion, that is just how we put our laws together. So putting the Ten Commandments up is just a monument of where we got our laws."

Declaring that a Satanic monument has no right to be placed on government grounds because "we don't get our laws from Satan," Beck asserted that "we get our laws from the laws of Moses."

"It's truly insanity":

Beck: Climate Change Is 'The Biggest Theft Ever In The History Of The World'

Glenn Beck kicked off his television program last night with a fake local newscast reporting on the record-breaking cold weather that has engulfed much of the country for the last few days in order to drive home the right-wing theory that climate change cannot be real because it still gets cold and snows.

During the segment, it even began "snowing" in the studio, which is why Beck was covered in glitter when he got serious and told his audience that, a hundred years from now, people will look back on this period in time as "the biggest theft ever in the history of the world" since the effort to fight climate change is nothing more than "a push for more power and to take more of your money":

Beck: 'We Were The Ones That Destroyed' Cable News

The other day, Al Sharpton did a segment on his television program in which he donned a lab coat in order to deliver a science lesson to climate change deniers ... and Glenn Beck found the entire thing to be just sad and pathetic.

That's right, a man who, just two months ago, spent ten minutes on his own program playing with Wizard the Oz dolls while wearing ruby slippers, finds MSNBC's programming to be simply embarrassing because they are obviously trying to copy him but have no idea what they are doing.

As Beck's co-host Pat Gray declared, "all [MSNBC is] trying to do now is copy what you did at Fox. That's what Ed Schultz does; that's what Al Sharpton is trying to do now. I mean, it's pretty transparent. They're just really excruciatingly bad at it."

"It's really amazing how much this network is flailing," Beck added, before proudly declaring that his show on Fox essentially destroyed cable news.

"We brought that industry to an end because we went in, we mocked the way it was done while we were doing it. We broke all of the rules. We rocketed to the top. It was iconic and now everybody is left with this ... they don't know what to do because they can't make it work, they don't know what to do and so it's becoming these really lousy ... it's becoming embarrassing":

Yes, it's embarrassing, said the man who was down on his knees on the floor providing imaginary medical aid with an American flag blanket to a mortally wounded Lady Liberty in a desperate attempt to save America not too long ago.

Beck: 'I'm Not The Evil Conservative Monster They Say I Am'

As anyone who watches Glenn Beck's radio and television programs with any regularity can tell you, the messages delivered by Beck can vary widely from day to day, depending on Beck's mood and worldview at any given moment. One day, Beck is all "let's just love one another and treat everyone with respect and dignity" and then the next day (or even later on the same program) he is railing against progressives and those with whom he disagrees as the root of all evil today and throughout history.

On last night's program, Beck was in one of his Kumbaya moods while discussing the remark he made a few weeks back that he'd "stand with GLAAD" against the vicious anti-gay bigotry being stoked in Russia, saying that he was rather surprised that other people were shocked that he would take such a stance.

"This isn't a gay issue; it's a human issue," Beck declared, approximately two minutes into this clip. "I am a human who lives and breathes just like the next guy ... I have a family. I like to laugh. I like to play with my kids. I like to watch a good movie; sometimes I see too many bad ones. I'm not angry. I'm not the evil conservative monster they say I am. And get this one, I don't think they're the monster either":

Of course, this might be easier to believe if just a few months ago Beck hadn't literally called Michelle Obama "a monster":

Beck Teases Pre-Election Conservative Summit with Hannity, Levin, & Limbaugh

Before he left on his holiday vacation, Glenn Beck hinted at some sort of "conservative summit" that would bring together Beck, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh in the summer of 2014. Today, Beck returned from vacation and discussed the event in a bit more detail, announcing that Hannity has already agreed to participate and is reaching out to Levin, and that the event will probably take place in June at some venue yet to be announced.

What appeared to please Beck most about this planned gathering is that it will take place shortly before the mid-term elections, with Beck and his co-hosts sarcastically musing about how coincidentally fortuitous if would be to "have a massive gathering somewhere right before the mid-terms" at which the conservative movement could come together in unity just before the elections.

"It would be really sad for the other side," said co-host Pat Gray:

Of course, just before the last election, Beck was confident that Mitt Romney would win because "God is not neutral in [the] freedom of all of mankind" and all the Tea Party and prayer rallies were just like what the Founding Fathers did to create this nation.

For most of his speech, Beck, a Mormon, lectured the large audience on what it means to be a Christian, beseeching them live their lives in such a way that they can "demand miracles, expect miracles, call down miracles" in the name of "the awesome power of Jesus Christ and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."
