Anti-LGBT Russian Documentary Featuring Scott Lively Is Now Available In English

Back in 2014, extremist anti-gay activist Scott Lively appeared in a virulently anti-gay documentary that aired on Russian television:

While Lively's views can't find much domestic audience, they play well in Vladimir Putin's Russia. Lively's anti-gay zeal is on display in Sodom, a new documentary that aired on Russian television last month, to much acclaim. The film was produced by famously anti-gay TV host Arkady Mamontov, who once implied that the Chelyabinsk meteorite explosion was caused by the gay rights movement. The film aired on Rossiya-1, Russia's main government-funded TV channel.

"For American homosexuals, this man, Scott Lively, is public enemy number one," intones the film's narrator. On camera, Lively speaks about the gay "agenda," which seeks "anti-discrimination policy" in the name of ultimate "societal conquest." Lively insists that "The average American is not in favor of homosexuality. But they are afraid to speak publicly about it, because the gays have so much power and they can do harm to those people."

Lively brings the film's producers to the headquarters of the Human Rights Campaign in Washington, DC. Set against a dramatic soundtrack, Lively paces outside. "This organization, instead of focusing on the true needs of people around the world, they are trying to declare that homosexuality is a human right," Lively says. "They spend vast amounts of money to promote this agenda around the world instead of defending genuine human rights."

Now, for the first time, that documentary has been made available in English.

It begins by recounting the story of Sodom and Gomorrah before declaring that the "Phoenician demon" that was at work there is still "satiating his belly with human sacrifices [and] devouring youth and children today" through gay rights activism.

"Evil is now called virtue and darkness light," the narrator intones. "Sin and debauchery are becoming a cult."

Lively eventually appears on camera to rail against the LGBT-friendly "Queen James Bible," which he calls "an abomination before God."

"There is no sacred ground for the homosexuals," Lively says. "There is nothing that they will not do to promote their agenda. There is no opposition that they will accept at any level. They must conquer every opponent and the spirit that has produced this book, this false Bible, this gay theology is the heresy of the modern world."

Right Wing Round-Up - 8/10/16

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/10/16

  • Gary Cass has some thoughts on the Olympics: "Is it politically incorrect to lament there isn't an Olympic Scimitar event so the Muslims could have a chance to win at least one medal? The closest we got was an American Muslim chick wearing a hijab who lost at fencing. Muslims apparently like swords."
  • Frank Gaffney accuses Ahmed Mohamed, who was arrested after bringing a homemade clock to school, of committing "political warfare" on behalf of "Islamic supremacists."
  • John Neihof takes to the AFA website to declare that "we often say that God will punish our nation for our sins. True. However, His judgment is already upon us. Sterility is judgment. It is not so much that God will punish us with some future grave punishment for our abandonment of His design. We have embraced divorce. We have embraced cohabitation. We have embraced illegitimacy. We have embraced the auto-erotic sterility of pornography. We have embraced same-sex marriage. We have embraced sterility socially, biologically, and spiritually. Our nation has abandoned the virtuous blessing of reproduction. We have welcomed God’s judgment! Abortion, same-sex marriage, transgender... The curse of sterility is a self-imposed curse we have embraced, and called it good. Ours is a self-imposed curse against nature."
  • The Christian Post says that "Evangelicals should not vote for Hillary Clinton."
  • Linda Harvey wonders "How many unborn children died the day Cecile Richards spoke to an adoring DNC?How many middle and high school children this year will be deceived into believing they were born homosexual? Or born in the wrong sex body? And many will never hear another viewpoint, or learn they can turn away from these destructive behaviors.These are the real victims in today’s America."
  • Finally, Scott Lively issues a call to arms: "What will make America (and Europe) great – and safe – again is assertive, resolute, paternalistic and decidedly masculine Christianity. It’s time for the church of Jesus Christ to 'man up,' throw off the shackles of political-correctness in all of its forms, take back the culture from the atheists, libertines and radical feminists, and set an example of strength and order."

Michael Savage: I'm Offended By Hillary Clinton's Voice

Conservative talk show host Michael Savage said yesterday that he finds Hillary Clinton’s voice to be “very offensive,” expressing dismay at her “grating,” “hard voice.”

“What do you fear most about a Hillary presidency, other than hearing her grating voice for eight years?” he asked. “That’s the part I can’t take, it’s listening to her, that hard voice. It’s not that it scares me, it offends me deeply. I find it very offensive.”

He added: “I don’t like women who are not feminine. I don’t like hard women who are like men without, let’s put it this way, men without pants.”

Savage, a close ally of Donald Trump, said he doesn’t understand “why women are so excited about, ‘Oh she’s the first woman.’ In what sense is she the first woman president? What does that matter?”

While speaking to a caller, Dan, who said that he was also fearful of “listening to that shrill voice for the next eight years” along with Clinton’s “lust for absolute power,” Savage said that Clinton “will continue to attack the white male portion of the population” and “has a vendetta for white males.”

Clinton, according to Savage, plans on “importing” new voters and believes, “Give us all the minorities, give us all the gays, give us all the immigrants because eventually we will win by demographics. How can any white male ever vote for a Democrat? I’ll never understand. I don’t understand it because they’re digging their own grave.”

Michael Savage: Hillary Clinton Wants To Make You 'A Minority In Your Own Country'

Yesterday, right-wing talk show host and Donald Trump ally Michael Savage asked his listeners, “What do you fear most about a Hillary presidency?”

Savage said he was particularly afraid of Clinton bringing in criminal, indolent, “uneducated” and “diseased” immigrants “because they’re born Democrat voters.”

“They’re not coming here to work, they’re not coming here to be Americans, they’re not coming here to learn English, they’re not coming here to learn the Star-Spangled Banner, why do we need them?” he continued.

“Trump says he’ll build the wall and close the borders, she says she’ll open the borders even further until you are a minority in your own country,” he said. “Think about it before you vote.”

In Their Own Words: Meet Donald Trump And Marco Rubio's Unhinged Anti-LGBT Allies

Following the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando in June, Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said he was so affected by the tragedy that he changed his mind and decided to run for re-election to the U.S. Senate, while Donald Trump claimed that he would best represent the LGBT community by opposing Muslim immigration.

“Ask the gays” who their true friend is, Trump said.

Now, Trump and Rubio are both set to appear in Orlando two months after the Pulse nightclub shooting.

But rather than stand in solidarity with the LGBT community, as they pledged to do, they will be addressing a summit on the dangers of “homosexual totalitarianism” organized by some of the country’s most extreme anti-LGBT activists.

While Rubio has denied that the “Rediscovering God in America” event has anything to do with LGBT issues, its chief organizer, David Lane of the American Renewal Project, said explicitly that the gathering will focus on how LGBT equality endangers religious liberty.

Besides Lane, Trump and Rubio will be joining Religious Right activists Mat Staver, David Barton, Bill Federer and Ken Graves. That Trump and Rubio would stand with these activists shouldn’t be surprising, since both have promised to back anti-LGBT legislation and support judicial nominees hostile to LGBT rights, but it does show how their promises to defend the LGBT community only amounted to cynical and shallow political ploys.

Here is just a sampling of what Trump and Rubio’s far-right allies have said about the LGBT community:

David Lane

David Lane, the main organizer of the Orlando event, said in 2013 that God would punish America over the appearance of a gay poet and a pro-gay-rights priest at President Obama’s inauguration, including with car bombings in cities across the country:

Lane has also written extensively about the LGBT rights movement, describing it as a “pagan onslaught” that “has threatened our utter destruction.”

“Homosexuality is debauchery,” he wrote, adding: “Homosexual desire and marriage is unnatural and—more so—is a symptom of advanced cultural decay and precursor to the collapse of the Republican Party and the nation.”

Mat Staver

Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver has been fighting LGBT rights for years, representing clients like Kentucky clerk Kim Davis and Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who both defied the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, and Lisa Miller, who during a custody battle with her former female partner, kidnapped their daughter and fled to Central America.

As we’ve reported, Staver “believes that the gay rights movement is ‘doing the bidding of the Devil ’ and is part of the spirit of the Antichrist and ‘demonic.’”

He has repeatedly compared LGBT activists to terrorists and warned that they are “forcinghomosexuality onto people, while at the same time he has frequently praised countries that criminalize homosexuality and pro-gay speech and has floated the possibility of civil war and revolution to stop marriage equality.

Staver has described gay people as child molesters who seek to transform groups like the Boy Scouts into “a playground for pedophiles” where they can “go and have all these boys as objects of their lust.”

In the wake of the Pulse nightclub attack, Staver criticized churches for participating in memorial events that he saw as “a homosexual love fest.”

David Barton

David Barton, a Republican Party activist and self-styled historian, has a long record of attacks against the LGBT community.

Several times, Barton has said that God is preventing scientists from finding a cure or vaccine for HIV/AIDS because such a discovery would remove the divine punishment for homosexuality, arguing that homosexuality is a curse on people and society, while “chasing the sodomites” out of a community would lead to revival.

He once warned parents of public school students that “unless you’re willing to monitor what’s going on in that classroom,” he could “guarantee” that their children “are getting homosexual indoctrination,” lamenting that many children identify as gay because schools have decided to “force them to be homosexual.”

He has also falsely claimed that ex-gay conversion therapy is now part of the scientific mainstream and insisted that gay marriage harms the economy and leads to national collapse.

Barton has evencalled for the federal regulation and outlawing of gay sex because it is ‘very repugnant’ and ‘reprehensible and disgusting.’ He has warned that gay marriage will force male and female students to share the same locker rooms, that it has legalized pedophilia and bestiality and will now force churches to hire child molesters to run their day care centers.”

Ken Graves

Longtime LGBT rights opponent and Maine pastor Ken Graves appeared at an Orlando rally last year where he warned that “militant homofascism seeks to take over our land and make it Sodom” and is working in conjunction with those trying to establish Islamic rule and a “secular humanist caliphate.”

Bill Federer

Bill Federer, like Barton, styles himself as a historian, and one of his historical insights is that LGBT equality leads to Islamic domination:

It is no wonder that groups including the Equality FloridaHuman Rights Campaign, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund, People For the American Way and many others have condemned Trump and Rubio’s appearance at the event.

Glenn Beck Appears To Cite Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory To Justify Not Revealing His Confidential Sources In Defamation Lawsuit

As we noted earlier today, a federal judge issued a ruling yesterday ordering Glenn Beck to reveal the names of several confidential sources upon whom he relied during his 2013 crusade to prove that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi was "the money man" who financed and orchestrated the Boston Marathon bombing.

Alharbi is now suing Beck for defamation and demanding to know the identities of Beck's sources so that they can be deposed by his lawyers, and the judge overseeing the case has ordered Beck's legal team to reveal them.

Beck kicked off his radio program today by discussing the conspiracy theory that a Democratic National Committee staffer was recently murdered, supposedly because he was some sort of whistle-blower who was going to expose Hillary Clinton. And while Beck did not directly address the defamation lawsuit or the judge's ruling in his comments, it was quite obvious that he was using this conspiracy theory as justification for his refusal to reveal the sources behind his attack on Alharbi.

"Read the papers," Beck said. "Read the internet. Sources are under attack. Confidential sources are under attack and you cannot reveal confidential sources because there are sources that are concerned about this very kind of thing ... I am convinced, after talking to people in the government and talking through others to sources, I am absolutely convinced that people feel this way; that if I say anything [they will be killed.]"

"Have we crossed a line to where our government or our politicians or our political institutions now feel comfortable enough to where they will kill you?" Beck asked. "Now that sounds crazy, but are we not moving towards Russia?"

Pat Robertson: Satan Inspires Liberals To Lie About Donald Trump (And Me)

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson defended GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump over his recent comment that if Hillary Clinton is elected president, nothing could be done to prevent her and her judicial nominees from doing away with gun rights unless “Second Amendment people” stop them.

Robertson blamed liberal monitoring groups for the uproar, alleging that they twisted Trump’s remarks, before he himself went ahead and altered Trump’s remarks to make them more benign.

The televangelist told co-host Wendy Griffith that he feels for his “buddy” because he has been the victim of similar hit jobs from Media Matters and People For the American Way. (Right Wing Watch is a project of People For the American Way).

“I sympathize with Donald Trump. I had a group called Media Matters, I had another group called People For the American Way, they taped every single word that I said and I did about 10,000 broadcasts, I did many adlibs, and every time they would take my words and transpose—they would take connectors out and they would put it out, and there was somebody at the AP who was one of their clones and they picked [it] up and across the country would come these idiotic statements,” he said. “The same thing is being done to Trump.”

“Out of context, twist it around, and then throw it out, ‘Robertson just said,’ and around the world,” Robertson continued. “So they’re doing to Trump now. There’s a whole team of people just looking for every word he speaks to make him look silly. What he said yesterday I think, or the day before, whatever, the Second Amendment crowd would give me a hand, and what he’s talking about are those who are concerned about gun control, and what he’s saying is a new Supreme Court judge, it’s been virtually a tie on it, and the next time they put a liberal judge on, they’ll be reversing the Second Amendment. So he said the Second Amendment. So what his opponents are saying, Donald Trump is encouraging people to shoot Hillary, it’s just nonsense.”

These supposed lies about Trump and himself, Robertson explained, are inspired by the same source: Satan.

“Every time they’re going to twist the words, I know what it’s like, he has my profound sympathy but these people are profound liars and they’re set up as liars,” he said. “The devil is a liar and the father of lies, according to the Bible.”

More Bad News For Glenn Beck: Judge Sides Against Him On Key Issues In Boston Marathon Bombing Defamation Case

Yesterday, the federal judge overseeing the defamation lawsuit filed against Glenn Beck by Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing and whom Beck spent a month accusing of being an al-Qaida "control agent" and the "money man" who financed and orchestrated the attack, issued a ruling ordering Beck to identify the confidential sources that he relied on when making these claims so that Alharbi's lawyers can depose them:

U.S. District Court Judge Patti Saris ruled that Beck must disclose the names of two Department of Homeland Security employees who allegedly gave a Beck producer information backing up the radio and TV host's claim that Alharbi was the "money man" behind the attack.

The judge said deposition testimony from Beck and two of his top deputies at the time — Joel Cheatwood and Joe Weasel — was "vague and often contradictory" about what the sources said and when they said it. She also noted that the key sources spoke directly only with Weasel, who claimed to record the information on Post-It notes "which he then discarded."

Saris said she ordered the production of records from several government agencies, but they were not of help in confirming what the Beck aides were allegedly told. "None of the documents supports the idea that Alharbi was the 'the money man' financing the Boston Marathon attacks," the Boston-based judge wrote in her 61-page ruling.

As the judge's ruling makes clear, there is no evidence to back up Beck's assertion that Alharbi was "the money man" behind the bombing other than the say-so of Beck's confidential sources. And that is bad news for Beck, as the judge also dismissed his legal team's effort to assert that Alharbi was a "limited-purpose public figure," which would have required Alharbi to prove that Beck knew that the allegations that he was making against Alharbi were false or that he made them with reckless disregard for the truth. Instead, the judge ruled that Alharbi was merely a private figure who was thrust into the news by events beyond his control and therefore he simply needs to prove that Beck was negligent in leveling these public allegations.

And, according to the judge, Alharbi looks to have a strong case since Beck's legal team was unable to produce any documentation to support Beck's claim that Alharbi financed and orchestrated the terrorist bombing, which he continued to make long after claims about Alharbi's involvement in the attack had been debunked by the government, investigators and even reporters from Beck's own network:

As a private figure, Alharbi is only required to prove negligence as opposed to malice. See Ravnikar, 782 N.E.2d at 510-11. Under the negligence standard, “the defendants are required to act reasonably in checking on the truth or falsity of the communication before publishing it.” Jones v. Taibbi, 512 N.E.2d 260, 269 (Mass. 1987) (internal quotation marks and alterations omitted). At this stage, the plaintiff has put forward enough evidence for a reasonable jury to conclude that the defendants did not act reasonably in verifying the truth of the broadcasts about Alharbi, particularly the May 8 statement that Alharbi was the “money man.”

To begin with, the defendants have put forth no admissible evidence that the statements are true. At the summary judgment hearing, the plaintiff highlighted an email from Weasel to Cheatwood on April 22, which states that another staff member of TheBlaze, Sara Carter, was “getting a very different picture” about Alharbi’s connection to the Boston Marathon bombing from her sources. Weasel Decl., Docket No. 117, Ex. 18, at 84. According to Weasel, Carter reached out to the FBI and ICE on the record to ask about the plaintiff’s involvement and the government documents provided by Source 2. Her sources allegedly responded that “Alharbi is considered innocent and not connected to the bombings or the suspects.” Id. at 85. Her sources also corroborated Secretary Napolitano’s testimony that Alharbi was temporarily placed on the terror watch list as a “precaution” before the government “determined whether he was more than a witness from the scene of the crime.” Id. at 84. 

According to the defendants, TheBlaze’s determination that Alharbi was involved in the Boston Marathon bombing was ultimately based on the two government documents they received from Source 2, and Source 1’s and 2’s explanation of these documents. The documents themselves are dated April 15 and 16, and the defendants agree that they were created in the immediate  aftermath of the bombing. Although the documents refer to Alharbi as a “suspected terrorist,” who is “armed & dangerous,” and mention the § 212(a)(3)(B)(i)(II) designation, they do not say anything about Alharbi being the “money man” or otherwise funding the attacks. 

When asked specifics about what Sources 1 and 2 told the defendants at his deposition, Weasel testified that the sources did not explain when the alleged financing took place, how any funds were transferred, the amounts of financing, what the financing was used for, or how the financing was otherwise accomplished. See Weasel Dep., Docket No. 109, Ex. H, at 160. Thus, the plaintiff has put forward enough evidence to demonstrate a genuine issue with respect to whether the defendants were negligent. 

Larry Klayman: Hillary 'Likely Responsible' For Iranian Scientist's Death Since '80 People Died' Mysteriously In Clinton Admin

The latest right-wing conspiracy theory being promoted by GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is that the recent execution of an Iranian nuclear scientist who had worked with Americans was the result of emails about him that had been compromised by going through Hillary Clinton’s private server.

It’s not true, but that didn’t stop right-wing attorney and conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Larry Klayman from using the case to drive home his claim that 80 people connected to Clinton “scandals” mysteriously wound up dead during Bill Clinton’s administration.

When Detroit radio host Frank Beckmann asked Klayman about the conspiracy theory surrounding the Iranian scientist yesterday, Klayman eagerly piled on, linking the case to the death of former Commerce Secretary Ron Brown in a 1996 plane crash and, of course, to the 2012 attack on Americans in Benghazi. (Klayman is representing the parents of two Benghazi victims in his latest lawsuit against Clinton.)

Absolutely. I mean, look, this is a woman who, whether she was responsible for it or not, that during the administration of Bill Clinton over 80 people died, vanished. And I’m not saying that she was responsible for all 80 people, but people have asked questions. Why did 80 people die, material witnesses in the cases? I was involved with Ken Starr in going against her. Ron Brown died in a mysterious plane crash in Croatia. Maybe it was an accident, but you know what, when 80 people die questions are going to be asked.

And bad things have happened in our system and, in this case, Hillary Clinton, whether she intended it or not, is likely responsible for the death of this double American agent spy with Iran and she’s undoubtedly responsible for the death of Sean Smith and also Tyrone Woods.
