RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right. This week, here at Right Wing Watch we have been monitoring the Conservative Political Action Conference, the American Conservative Union’s annual summit that has been packed with typical right-wing blustering over taxes, Benghazi, Ronald Reagan, not to mention plenty of good old fashioned anti-government conspiracy theories: 5) Wayne LaPierre’s American Nightmare NRA head Wayne LaPierre told CPAC attendees yesterday that “political and media elites...

Speaking at CPAC, today, Ralph Reed defended Louisiana’s constitutionally dubious voucher program -- which the Department of Justice warned was resegregating schools -- by comparing President Obama to notorious segregationist George Wallace. The Faith and Freedom Coalition head told CPAC today that Obama was harming black children and lifted from the spiritual “Go Down, Moses,” to tell Obama: “Let those children go!” Reed also chastised “left-wing bullies” for defeating Arizona’s right-to-discriminate bill and completely misrepresented the...

It looks as if right-wing grifter Ralph Reed has a new book coming out soon entitled "Awakening: How America Can Turn from Moral and Economic Destruction Back to Greatness." In an effort to promote the book, Reed has filmed a series of short videos highlighting different aspects of the topics covered in his book, including one that purports to reveal with "real" Barack Obama, whom Reed met back in 1997 when they both served on a Harvard working group tasked with studying "civil engagement and social capital." Reed says his participation in that working group was... MORE >

Looks like Glenn Beck has become the victim of his own chalkboard-style paranoia. 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 “... MORE >

A New York Times report this weekend on national groups coordinating to win state-level elections noted the revelation, which first surfaced last fall, that Alabama Republicans worked to funnel money from Indian casinos to support candidates running on anti-gambling platforms in 2010. The casinos opposed the expansion of gambling as part of plan to quash competition; meanwhile, state Republicans needed an influx of money to help them win control of the state legislature. Alabama GOP chairman Mike Hubbard and state senator Del Marsh, who also serves as the state party’s finance chairman... MORE >

Several House Republicans have drafted articles of impeachment against Attorney General Eric Holder. Rick Santorum will be the keynote speaker at a Christian Women in Media Association event next week. Lucky them! We will never understand why groups like CWA claim that they have been designated a "hate group" by the SLPC when it is so demonstrably false. Ralph Reed says the GOP should try to model itself on Pope Francis. Finally, FRC prays against ENDA: "May God give House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Congress the moral strength to reject ENDA! (Ex 23:2;... MORE >

Senators and presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Ted Cruz will head to Iowa this week as featured speakers at a closed-door event for conservative pastors that has been organized by David Lane, an anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-Mormon, Christian-nation absolutist who has declared war, not only on secularism and separation of church and state, but also on establishment Republicans who don’t embrace his vision of an America in which the Bible serves as “the principle textbook” for public education and a “Christian culture” has been “re-established.” He...
