Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/20/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/18/14

  • Rick Joyner laughably insists that "the Tea Party consists mostly of moderates. They are now considered extremists because of propaganda and because the nation has been pushed so far to the left that they seem extreme. However, in general, the Tea Party is mostly moderate."

  • Gordon Klingenschmitt says that even if marijuana become legal nationwide, God opposes it and people will be held accountable for using it.
  • Apparently, the constitutional right to counsel is not something that Joseph Farah understands.
  • In August, FRC will host a discussion on "Putting the Bible and Prayer Back in the Public Schools."
  • Finally, we're not even going to bother debunking this because it is obviously absurd: "2% of all active homosexuals experience 80% of all STD's."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/16/14

  • Steve Kern, husband of bigoted anti-gay Oklahoma legislator Sally Kern, is seeking to join her in the state legislature and shares her views: "They were true in the sense that the (gay) agenda was more stealthy than the terrorists' agenda."

  • Chuck Baldwin declares that "the fact is, when one examines the political bents of recent mass killers, he or she will find that the majority of them have come from left-wing communities and ideologies."

  • "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is sick of the "race barkers."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says that parents who disapprove of their gay daughter's lifestyle should still attend her wedding because it is important to her. Bryan Fischer said that. Seriously.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/13/14

  • Glenn Beck says that he is "in the final phase of a massive transformation."
  • Dinesh D’Souza is now making a film about Hillary Clinton, so that ought to be enlightening.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/12/14

  • FRC's Connor Headrick explains "Why It's OK to Let the Bible Guide Your Politics."
  • Gordon Klingenschmitt wants a future president to reinstate Don't Ask, Don't Tell: "When they repealed don't ask, don't tell, they technically went back to the older policy where the commander-in-chief has the power to make that decision. So if a commander-in-chief were courageous, he could issue an executive order and return to the 1980s' ban when homosexuality was absolutely outlawed under the UCMJ. So it would not take an act of Congress – just one courageous president."
  • Lloyd Marcus, Chairman of Conservative Campaign Committee, says that "because Obama is black, Americans suffer and die."
  • Finally, a typically smart point from Cal Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance: "The hypocrisy of those who supported the EPA's efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants in the name of children's health while supporting members of Congress who support abortion on demand is palpable and disgusting."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/6/14

  • The Texas Eagle Forum had quite the line-up for its "Patriotic Banquet at the 2014 GOP Convention" with Ted Cruz, David Barton, and Tom DeLay all speaking.

  • Linda Harvey lays out the "12 Ways Homosexual Adults Endanger Children."
  • Gordon Klingenschmitt says that everyone remembers "when those terrorists from Afghanistan" carried out the 9/11 attacks. We'd like to point out that none of the hijackers were from Afghanistan.
  • Finally, Focus on the Family's Glenn Stanton says that gay relationships are not at all like straight relationships: "[I]t is difficult to say with honesty that serious gay and lesbian relationships are just like heterosexual relationships."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/3/14

  • Opponents of an Islamic Center in Tennessee have lost their effort to shut it down after the Supreme Court refused to hear their case.
  • Bryan Fischer awaits the day the American people "reach their threshold of tolerance for unlawful behavior from our chief executive and simply insist that the constitutional remedy of impeachment be pursued."
  • Mychal Massie analyzes the president: "Obama is a man on the ropes. He is coming more unhinged. Only a person with deep-seated emotional instability makes the public displays he does. Only a person teetering on the brink of emotional collapse continues to make fallacious statements and then attempts to downplay them by claiming even greater lies."

  • Of course Allen West, who was voted out of office after just one term in Congress, is considering a run for the White House.
  • On June 6, right-wing Christian activists will unleash a "prayer storm" to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day: "Those with spiritual discernment see that we are facing a spiritual battle against evil in our nations today every bit as real as WWII. Moral depravity, apostasy, and other anti-Christian attacks reflect the creeping human secularist agenda that seeks to remove the gift of Liberty that Jesus' blood gave to all humanity."
  • As part of the 2014 Pastors & Patriot’s initiative, Mat Staver announces that Liberty Counsel will be "hosting pastors and wives meetings (usually a luncheon) in the critical 'swing states' of our country. The remarkable luncheon media presentation will feature nationally recognized Christian leaders such as Governor Mike Huckabee, Historian David Barton, Evangelist James Robison, myself, and many, many more."
  • Finally, Matt Barber warns that "pornography use leads to death" and "pornography use is demonic."

  • Finally, speaking of Fischer, he reacted to the resignation of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney by saying that he can't imagine having a job where he had to go out and lie five days a week. As we've said before, Bryan Fischer is a lot of things, but self-aware is not one of them.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/29/14

  • Predictably, David and Jason Benham have now become full-fledged Religious Right stars and have been given a speaking slot at Ralph Reed's upcoming Faith and Freedom Coalition conference.
  • Mat Staver reiterates his demand that Congress impeach President Obama: "Our Constitution and precious liberties are under full-scale assault by Barack Obama and his leftist administration. Patriotic Americans must refuse to stand silently by while leftists take our nation apart, plank by plank We MUST perform our duty as Americans to free ourselves of this tyranny."
  • Finally, Tea Party Nation has a message for the GOP: "America is waiting for you to prove you are patriots, not eunuchs."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/28/14

  • Mike Huckabee will not be speaking at the North Carolina Republican Party's convention next month because organizers could not come up with the $15,000 speaking fee he charges.
  • Matt Moore wants to make it clear that he really, truly, genuinely loves gays before telling them they are bound for Hell.
  • Bryan Fischer continues to insist that the Bible prohibits slavery and requires that those who practice it are to be put to death.  Someone should ask him if that means that he believes Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and other slave-owning Founding Fathers should have been punished accordingly.
  • The WNBA is marketing itself to LGBT fans and Peter LaBarbera is not happy: "I think that the sad thing here is there are a lot of Christian women who like the WNBA. They play basketball, they want to go to games, but now [if they continue to do that] they will be effectively subsidizing an organization which is rewarding sin."
  • Finally, this one line perfectly sums up Glenn Beck's entire worldview: "I don’t know how to make anything make sense."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/27/14

  • Allen West just so happened to be seated next to someone on a plane who knew the "ground truth" about what really happened in Benghazi and he told him all about it!

  • Michael Peroutka donated a dinosaur skeleton worth over a million dollars to the Creation Museum.

Federal prosecutors are seeking sixteen months in prison for Dinesh D'Souza, largely based on the fact that his supposed contrition before the court does not square with the public statements he made about the case elsewhere. Ray Comfort's upcoming anti-gay movie is going to be absolutely amazing, according to Ray Comfort. Peter LaBarbera is furious that the U.S. will not support other nation's efforts to criminalize homosexuality: "Just because America has fallen so far that we now treat sin, in this case homosexuality, as a civil right doesn't mean we have...

Glenn Beck is now enamored with Andrew W.K., spending an entire hour with him on TV last night and calling him "one of the more important voices to unite America." Some more keen insights from Todd Starnes: "Secretary of State Kerry says ISIS is anti-Islam. It seems like this administration is more interested in defending Islam than they are the United States." Things would be so much better "if America were a Christian nation." Deacon Keith Fournier gushes about Rick Santorum and hopes that he runs for president: "Rick Santorum is a statesman... MORE

Ray Comfort's next film is going to be about homosexuality, so that ought to be enlightening. Liberty Counsel says it desperately needs to raise "$50,000 before the end of the month in order to meet our monthly budget." Bob McDonnell is no longer teaching at Liberty University. We wonder why? The American Family Association is now officially boycotting Target. Finally, Bryan Fischer continues to praise other nations for criminalizing homosexuality. MORE

Another claim promoted by Glenn Beck gets debunked by his own website. Russian President Vladimir Putin is being guided by Satan, according to a leader of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Jesse Lee Peterson says anti-gay business owners should agree to provide services to gay customers, but only after telling them that they will use the money from the sale to make a donation to anti-gay legal groups. The National Organization for Marriage's John Eastman is confident that the Supreme Court will not "strike down thousands of years of history and the laws of 35... MORE

The right-wing Benghazi conspiracy theory continues to fall apart. Tom Cotton takes a bold position on raising the minimum wage: he supports it as a “citizen,” but will vote against it in Congress.  Rep. James Lankford hosted a tour of the U.S. Capitol with none other than pseudo-historian David Barton.  A columnist for BarbWire believes that Cardinal Timothy Dolan and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade organizers have “capitulated to the ‘almighty’ lavender lobby.” Family Research Council says President Obama shows...

The verdict is in and former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife have both been found guilty on multiple counts of corruption. Laurie Roth tells President Obama that "the American people aren’t done with our freedom, our Constitution, our Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights ... The American people are also not done with our guns, Holy Bibles and Jesus." Tom DeLay says that "in defending America against radical Islamic terrorism, Barack Obama cannot be trusted. Barack Obama was raised a Muslim, and he claims he is a Christian, and I can’t... MORE

Concerned Women for America and Mike Huckabee are organizing a "Stand With Israel Rally." After he retires from the Senate in a few months, Sen. Tom Coburn is going to launch an effort in support of the right-wing plan to organize a Convention of the States. Gina Miller warns that Facebook "is the face of burgeoning communist censorship.  It is the face of the anti-Americanism of the radical Left. It is the face of the metastasizing tyranny that is fast growing in our nation." Tough guy Todd Starnes is back with more foreign policy advice:... MORE
