Rep. Peter King (R-NY recently announced the third in his series of hearings on the “radicalization of the Muslim-American community”—the GOP’s premier venue for demonstrating the kinds of attacks highlighted in PFAW’s latest Right Wing Watch: In Focus report “The Right Wing Playbook on Anti-Muslim Extremism.” As part of his hearings, King plans to call Thomas Joscelyn of the staunchly neoconservative Foundation for Defense of Democracies as a witness. Joscelyn, from his platform as a writer for the neoconservative Weekly Standard, has questioned the... MORE

Why am I not surprised that the Religious Right claim that a Texas military cemetery banned religious expression is wildly off-base? Fox News daringly exposes the left-wing plot to “eradicate the poor” through birth control. Opponents of teaching evolution suffer a major defeat in Texas. The Family Research Council hates “big government,” unless it’s government involvement in people’s private lives in which case it’s a-ok. Quote of the day from Bryan Fischer: “Alas, the homosexual lobby is rapidly turning us into... MORE

Tea Party Nation keeps pushing anti-gay attacks, from supporting anti-LGBT bullying to defending Michele and Marcus Bachmann’s clinic’s use of ‘ex-gay’ reparative therapy. Now, Tea Party Nation president Judson Phillips is using the current debate on the debt and the Defense budget to launch another anti-gay smear against Rep. Barney Frank, the openly gay Democratic congressman. Phillips called on Tea Party members to oppose Frank’s proposal to cut defense spending, arguing that the Tea Party should support more spending since he believes “Obama wants to... MORE

Vision America’s Rick Scarborough is continuing his campaign to link the Tea Party with the Religious Right, telling a Texas tea party group that God is responsible for the creation of America. According to Scarborough, who Politico reports is being actively courted by leading Republican presidential candidates, an unbiased study of history indisputably reveals that only God’s supernatural intervention led the colonies to win the War of Independence. Watch: I do know that even those who are not passionate about Christ are passionate their understanding that God gave us this... MORE
Liberty Counsel: Abuses By Obama "Exceed Those Of The King Of Great Britain" Causing American Revolution

Last week we noted that Liberty Counsel had issued a "Declaration of Independence 2011" asking people to sign a petition pledging their lives to resist the "abusive and lawless regime in the Executive Branch and in the United States Congress." As it turns out, the petition we linked to was only a small part of a much larger document [PDF] that Liberty Counsel has produced which is billed as a modern day version of the Declaration of Independence in which they assert that the abuses committed by this administration actually "exceed those of the King of Great Britain...

According to Pastor John Hagee, the U.S. military is no longer able to win wars because of Satan worship and increasing “paganism” in America. Hagee, who is an official endorser of Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s The Response prayer rally and a prominent Religious Right leader, delivered the remarks in a speech to last year’s Word Explosion Conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Perry has said that The Response is needed to solve problems that are “spiritual in nature,” adding that to create his policy platform he will simply “hand it over to God.” Many of the... MORE
