Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/16/14

  • Linda Harvey lays out the "12 Ways Homosexual Adults Endanger Children."

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.

Oh good. Former half-term governor Sarah Palin will speak at next week's Values Voter Summit. FRC prays: "May strong pro-life men and women be elected this November just weeks from now!"

Glenn Beck will be speaking at the Values Voter Summit again this year. According to CBN's David Brody, just about every leading GOP presidential hopeful supports legislation "that would ban abortions in America after twenty weeks." This is the actual title of Phyllis Schlafly's latest radio commentary: "Attacks on Religious Freedom Remind Us of Vietnam."

Jim Garlow has organized something called "The Jefferson Gathering" on Capitol Hill, in which Religious Right activists like Jonathan Cahn are brought in to speak to members of Congress and lead them in prayer. Watching Glenn Beck struggle to come up with a coherent conspiracy theory to explain why President Obama uses the term "ISIL" rather than "ISIS" is rather entertaining. Lee Duigon explains that liberals are unhappy because "Satan is unhappy": "When the devil is angry and unhappy, his servants are angry and unhappy." Bryan... MORE

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
