RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right. The conservative persecution drumbeat has been in full-force this week, with new predictions about Nazism coming to America and looming gay oppression. But maybe we will all be spared such atrocities if President Obama manages to give us all Ebola first. 5) Nazism Around The Corner After making a “documentary” likening the state of freedom in the U.S. to Germany right before the Nazi takeover, Rick Santorum is at least now owning up to his film’s claims. While... MORE >

After suggesting that President Obama may want Americans to contract the Ebola virus, Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., told Rick Wiles of “Trunews” yesterday that the decision to send U.S. military service members to West Africa on a relief mission may end up bringing the Ebola epidemic back to the U.S. “Barack Obama’s using the military to actually expose them which could expose further people across this country,” he said. Broun added that the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other military officials should have defied orders to organize a military operation in West Africa.... MORE >

The last time a Republican congressman appeared on the conspiracy theory radio program “Trunews,” he ended up arguing that President Obama wants to spread Ebola in order to impose martial law. Naturally, when Rep. Paul Broun appeared on “Trunews” yesterday, the Georgia Republican wondered if Obama wants Americans to contract Ebola. Broun spoke with host Rick Wiles — who once hoped that “Ebola could solve America’s problem” with homosexuality while also predicting that Obama will deliberately spread Ebola in order to “round up...

Two candidates with sterling Religious Right credentials won runoff primary elections yesterday to become GOP nominees to the U.S. House in Georgia. Jody Hice won a primary to succeed Rep. Paul Broun in Georgia’s 10th District, and seems prepared to pick up Broun’s mantle as one of the most far-right members of Congress. In 2012, Hice wrote a book in which he claimed that gay people have launched a scheme to “sodomize” children and proposed that Muslims be denied First Amendment rights. Hice, a Baptist pastor, also hosts a syndicated radio show in which he has... MORE >

In an echo of the electoral battle between Tea Party groups and the establishment GOP, Senate candidates in Colorado and Georgia are being caught up in a long-simmering conflict between purists and pragmatists in the anti-choice movement. Rep. Cory Gardner of Colorado attracted national attention yesterday when he announced that he was reversing his previous support for radical and wildly unpopular anti-choice “personhood” laws. Personhood USA, the primary group pushing such laws, promptly responded with a press release declaring that "Cory Gardner has betrayed the... MORE >

Last year, we noted five ways in which Republican leaders were either ignoring or directly contradicting the recommendations put forth in the party’s post-election “autopsy report,” which called for a more diverse and modern GOP with a broader appeal. Today, on the first anniversary of the report’s release, it is clear that those who opposed the plan for a more inclusive party have prevailed, succeeding in moving the GOP even farther to the right. Republican leaders seem to be accepting — albeit not openly — the pleas of right-wing pundits for the party... MORE >

Georgia Republican congressman and Senate candidate Paul Broun has been trying to out-extreme his opponents on the issue of immigration reform, announcing in a debate this weekend that the only immigration law he wants is one “that makes English the official language of America.” In an interview with Tea Party Express earlier this month, Broun made the same policy recommendation, claiming that comprehensive immigration reform would be “disastrous for Republicans” and “disastrous for anybody who is freedom-loving.” Later in the interview, Broun claimed...
