The Right’s Agenda Under Obama

Yesterday I received a fund-raising letter from the Family Research Council in which FRC President Tony Perkins warned that the Democratic leaders in the White House and Congress are “the most radically liberal in the history of our country” but that FRC will be at “maximum strength” to fight back an “seize the opportunities God has given us.”

Perkins crows that FRC has already “scared away the Left from their plan for an all-out blitz to pass their entire wish list of nightmarish legislation in the first 100 days” but ominously warns that “[President] Obama and the Left are [still] insidiously planning to destroy your values and freedoms piece by piece under the radar.”

“If our side shows any softness,” he warns, Democrats will ram through bills that will destroy everything they hold dear and, as such, it is vitally important that people not only send donations but also fill out the enclosed “Values Voter National Survey on Faith, Family, Freedom, and Other Major National Issues in America.”

The first part of the survey asks FRC members to rank their top policy priorities and their choices include stopping FOCA, stopping the Fairness Doctrine, stopping hate crimes legislation, stopping ENDA, and stopping Obama’s judicial nominees.

The second part asks FRC members to rank issues of concern to them and includes things ranging from fighting green energy policies that will “restrict your family’s use of heating and air conditioning” to making sure President Obama does not “restrict current anti-terror activities inside our border.”

This is just a reminder to anyone who thinks that the Religious Right is on the verge of disappearing, because the Right obviously has different ideas … and they have an entire laundry list of issues on which they are prepared to fight.
