Glenn Beck Lies About Bailouts Hannity Smears Kevin Jennings & Rick Scarborough Supports "Birthers" & New Targets In Fox News Witchhunt

This would all be funny stuff if these bozos weren't so dangerous.

The Secret Agenda of Blacks

The Mormon church owned Deseret News printed apostle and future prophet Ezra Taft Benson's words concerning civil rights:

“LOGAN, UTAH—Former agriculture secretary Ezra Taft Benson charged Friday night that the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT in the South had been 'FOMENTED ALMOST ENTIRELY BY THE COMMUNISTS.' “Elder Benson, a member of the Council of the Twelve of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said in a speech at a public meeting here that the WHOLE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT WAS 'PHONY.'...
“'The whole slogan of 'civil right' as used to make trouble in the South today, is an exact parallel to the slogan of agrarian reform' which they used in China,' he added....
“'The pending 'civil rights' legislation is, I am convinced, about 10 per cent civil rights and 90 per cent a further extension of socialistic federal controls,' Elder Benson said, 'It is part of the PATTERN FOR THE COMMUNIST TAKE-OVER OF AMERICA.'“ (Deseret News, December 14, 1963)

... He will not be satisfied until he achieves it by intermarriage. That is his objective and we must face it. We must not allow our feeling to carry us away, nor must we feel so sorry for negroes that we will open our arms and embrace them with everything we have. Remember the little statement that we used to say about sin, 'First we pity, then endure, then embrace.'...

From website: The Real Mormon History ( The Mormon apostle Mark E. Petersen gave a talk at Brigham Young University in 1954 concerning race relations.)

This quote is intriguing because most of it and the sentiment it expresses and the anxiety and conspiratorial tone matches that of "The John Birch Society" or the Ku Klux Klan or the sermons of various Christian preachers such as Rev. Jerry Falwell and many others who were against desegregation. Unfortunately this suspicion about other races continues up to the present day. Though now it is not as acceptable. Though some appeal to such racist sentiments by claiming everyone is now treated equally especially in the United States since it elected a black man as president. But racism. bigotry, mistrust, anxiety are not attitudes that a whole nation can just which away overnight. And there are still stumbling blocks in the way of blacks and other non-whites in America.

The other intriguing thing about this quote is that one can replace"Negro" with just about any group of people you want such as Hispanic, Latino, Gays and Lesbian,feminists Jews , Muslims ,Buddhists -the groups change but the mentality or mindset is the same as we make some group into "the dreaded other" what we don't understand we fear and even hate. At the moment in America it is acceptable to some people to publicly speak out against Gays and Lesbians and to fuel the fear and hatred of them by conjuring up wild conspiracies and talking about the Gay Agenda to turn your kids into Gays and thereby destroy America.

For example compare the lead-in to an anti-Gay article at the Religious Right "Traditional Values" website on the "boogeyman of the Right" the so called "Gay Agenda" in which they erroneously conflate Homosexuality with Pedophilia:

The Homosexual Movement And Pedophilia

The homosexual activist movement and organized pedophiles are linked together by a common goal:To gain access to children for seduction into homosexuality.

Homosexual activists deny that they target children for seduction into the homosexual lifestyle, but the evidence is overwhelming that this is a lie.

There is an ever-increasing effort among homosexual organizations to target public school children, to abolish age of consent laws, and to publish “studies” that purportedly show that adult/child sex is not harmful.

But as Glenn Beck Lou Dobbs , Sean Hannity and others prove everyday that they can with impunity attack Gays and ill-legal Immigrants who happen to be dark skinned or Muslims who have a different religion who may be dark skinned or have their own culture and speak a different language or blame the poor for being poor. Without such pariah groups without the fearful "other" what then would these fear merchants have to talk about.

Anyway Glenn beck claims to be "telling it like it is" that he is just trying to figure out what is going on in America as the average American that he is ( making 23 million a year not so average) He actually says that he is just getting by like everybody else. He sometimes refers to himself saying he is more rodeo clown than journalist. Odd since he researches subjects and events and tries he says to have experts on his program so he can pick their brains. Of course he never mentions that 90 % of these experts are connected with the Republican Party , are neoconservatives, or other conservatives and libertarians and those who belonged to organizations tied to the Religious Right or just a bit extreme such as Alex Jones.

But it appears Glenn beck doesn't always tell the truth. As the song goes "he's not exactly lying he's just careless with the truth". But for the most part he appears to be this sort of innocent who is always being shocked by what's happening.Odd though that he claims to not be a Republican or Democrat and he claims he was critical of George W. Bush on various issues Well except for lying to the country and the world in order to sell them on the Iraq War or that the contractors in Iraq Iraq were doing a splendid job in rebuilding Iraq and that Blackwater for instance could do no wrong and it did not bother him as a Good Mormon that a million people were killed in Iraq since every one of them was a terrorists besides as a Good Mormon he has a low opinion of dark skinned people and anyone who is not a Mormon or a Christian.

Anyway here he is lying again as he rewrites his own history. He always hated government and wanted to uncover corruption no matter which party was in power. And his audience incredibly believes whatever he says.

From the September 22, 2008, edition of CNN Headline News' Glenn Beck and the September 21 edition of Fox News' Glenn Beck:
LIAR: A year ago, Beck called for a bailout bigger than $700 billion; now claims he “[h]ated” Bush for starting bailouts

And Fox News is revving up its Smear Machine for the next target in the Obama administration or connected with the Obama administration or somebody's cousin's brother in law who once knew someone in the Obama administration.

Right Wing 's next target another in their opinion evil satanic communist community activist. Odd Fox News doesn't object to Religious Right and conservative community activist or Grass Roots organizations such as The Tea Party, 9/12 March on Washington or anti-abortion groups like Operation Rescue or Promise Keepers etc.

Beck and Scott Baker conclude that "people should be scared" of Deepak Bhargava because of his "connections" to Obama

From the October 5 edition of Fox News' Glenn Beck:

Meanwhile Sean Hannity that other anti-Obama racist bigot and Homophobe tries a new attack on Kevin Jennings since the so called "statutory Rape " scandal which was not actually a case of "statutory rape" and it was really a matter of something the student told him so this claim didn't work out so now he's on the NAMBLA story:

Recently another Religious Right conference took place called "How To Take Back America" Rightwing Watch at People For The American Way has been writing about the conference and has included some background on the participants and some video footage of participants though a couple have already been removed from YouTube and others may follow. Some of this stuff is pretty damning.

How to Take back America Conference

Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) Calls Obama an "Enemy of Humanity"

Speaking at the recent How To Take Back America Conference, Rep. Trent Franks declared that nobody should be shocked that President Obama does all sorts of "insane things" because he is an "enemy of humanity"

Scarborough is anti-islam anti-Gay he believes Obama is part of "the Gay Agenda Conspiracy" and is out to undermine America's traditional values and that he is out to take away the freedonms which Christians still have.

Scarborough attacks "Planned Parenthood " which he says is anti-Christian .
Scarborough believes that a whole subculture which has undermined Americas Judeo-Christian society and their leaders are now part of the Obama administration.
Right Wing Watch: Rick Scarborough Preaching At the How To Take Back America Conference

Rick Scarborough Preaches to the Choir at the How To Take Back America Conference Submitted by Kyle on September 25, 2009 at Rightwingwatch/People For The American Way

For weeks we have been covering the run-up to the How To Take Back America Conference, writing about the fringe Religious Right activists who are hosting it and the Republican leaders like Mike Huckabee and Michele Bachmann who will be addressing it, asking just how radical one has to be before they find themselves shunned by the GOP.

Earlier this week, we released a report on the organizers and participants which chronicled the various right-wing conspiracy theories and inflammatory rhetoric they have spewed over the years and, given that their long records of firey fringe activism are well-known, nobody can feign surprise when these activists got up to the podium and spewed those same rabidly fringe views at the conference.

Case in point: Rick Scarborugh of Vision America.

Scarborough, who served on Mike Huckabee's Faith and Values Committee during the latter's presidential campaign, unleashed a firey sermon more befitting a Sunday sermon than a political gathering. But since the two are essentially one in the same for Scarborough and the other participants, his proclamations that he is neither a Republican nor a Democrat but rather a "Christocrat" who will support only candidates who proudly stand up on the campaign trail and say "yes, there's a God" and who realizes that the Constitution is a godly document designed to guide this nation by Christian principles, just as the Bible is designed to guide the lives of all of mankind. He then rails against Republican failures to defund the Department of Education and Planned Parenthood before turning his attention to President Obama and "his minions" who are intent on giving civil rights to "sodomites" while banning the Bible and putting Christians in jail. Eventually he turns to the "shadow government" constructed by President Obama filled with "well-financed, well-heeled, and highly-staffed professional infidels who have dedicated their life" to destroying America:

And from Kyle at Rightwing Watch surprise! Surprise! we discover the Birthers are still a going concern and are being backed by Rick Scarborough at Vision America.
Vision America Goes Full-On Birther Submitted by Kyle on October 5, 2009 Rightwing Watch/ People For The American Way -

We already knew that Vision America's Rick Scarborough, who recently spoke at the How To Take Back America Conference, was a Birther. But we were not aware of the fact that the organization was also actively involved in the various lawsuits, but it looks like that is the case since they just used their email list to send out this fundraising pitch from Gary Kreep and the United States Justice Foundation:
From The Desk Of Gary G. Kreep
Dear Friend of USJF,
...8:30 AM, Monday, October 5.

That’s the time and day our entire legal and public relations effort to force Barack Obama to produce his birth certificate, and prove that he is eligible to serve as President of the United States, could rise or fall.

Yes, we have been smeared as “birthers” and “right-wing nuts.” But the fact is, thanks to our efforts, and those of our allies in this fight, more and more Americans are asking themselves the same questions we’ve been asking for months.

And those questions are: 1)“Why won’t Barack Obama produce his birth certificate?”; 2)“What is he afraid of?”; and 3)“What is he hiding?”

But, while we’ve been successful in educating millions of Americans on the serious questions swirling around Mr. Obama’s eligibility to be President, we’ve also earned the full wrath of the Obama machine.

And, while we have thus far been able to fend off the lies and the smears, we are now facing a do-or-die moment.

That moment will come at 8:30 AM on Monday, October 5.

That is the time that the United States District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division, will hear a Department of Justice (DOJ) motion to dismiss a lawsuit that we’ve recently become a part of, demanding Barack Obama release records that could prove –- or disprove -– his U.S. citizenship.

You read that right! With very little warning, we have just learned that the DOJ has been granted a hearing that could result in this new case over Obama’s citizenship being thrown out of court! The DOJ’s motion claims that our clients have no “standing,” that the Federal Court does not have “jurisdiction” to hear this case, and that the matter is “political.”

But, if we as citizens of the United States have no “standing” to verify the citizenship of the man occupying the White House, who does? If our Federal Courts have no jurisdiction to hear this case, who does? It’s not a “political” question, it’s a CONSTITUTIONAL question!


I believe that we have a responsibility -- no, A DUTY -- to verify whether the man occupying the White House is eligible to serve as President!

I have thus dedicated this organization, and all of its resources, to do just that, both in the court of law and in the court of public opinion.

and another target on the Religious Right/Republican Party's list is a lawyer Chai R. Feldum who is to become a member of the Employment Opportunity Commission. Her faults and sins include that she is a lesbian and has been an activist for Gay and Lesbian rights and she believes that more needs to be done to ensure Gays Lesbians and people with disabilities and others are given equal opportunity. These sanctimonious Christians are not just upset that she is Gay and believes in Gay rights but also she has shown she believes people with physical or mental disabilities also should be provided with equal opportunities Yes she wants to help the blind the deaf the lame the sick to be given a chance to live more productive lives. Damned socialists! these Christians cry. Jesus would never approve of such nonsense. They also do not approve of her because she supports the Supreme Court ruling on abortion in Roe V Wade 1973. So the Religious Right organization "Traditional Valuse Coalition" believes it is its duty to alert the American people to another "socialist " appointed by evil Obama .

If You Hate America You Have a Lawyer — Chai Feldblum at Traditional Values Coalition

Obama Nominates Radical Law School Professor For Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

September 17, 2009 – President Obama has picked Chai R. Feldblum to become a member of the Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency which enforces workplace civil rights laws. If confirmed, she would serve 5 years on the EEOC and issue edicts that will impact all areas of employment.

Feldblum isn’t known by most Americans but her career experience and employers make her a sort of general counsel to the Forces of Darkness. She has worked for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign Fund and she founded something called the Moral Values Project, a "gender equity" group meant to sound like something conservative.

She is a lesbian and has played a major role in pushing the LGBT agenda in American culture for the past 20 years.

Feldblum is professor of law (gay studies) at Georgetown University. She is the primary author of the pro-gay/transsexual bill known as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which is being pushed again in Congress. She is also a strategist for gay activists. She advocates the use of “incrementalism” in the achievement of the gay agenda. She wants to use incrementalism in ENDA, for example, by first covering employment and then later moving to housing and public accommodations. The same tactic was used in another Feldblum-authored bill the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) where housing was the first target and then the ADA was later expanded to cover more areas of our culture.

In the mid-1980s, Feldblum clerked for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun, the notorious liberal judge who authored the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion on demand. He invented a right to abortion not found in the Constitution. Feldblum praised him as someone who had the “ability and desire to look behind the law and see the people is not the classic way to do law …. He brings a sense of caring and compassion that will be missed.” Clearly, Feldblum favors liberal judicial activists who ignore the Constitution and who impose their own political views on the law.

She is author of such articles as:

* Moral Conflict and Liberty: Gay Rights and Religion, 72 Brook. L. Rev. 61-123 (2006).
* The Right to Define One’s Own Concept of Existence: What Lawrence Can Mean for Intersex and Transgender People, 7 Geo. J. Gender & L. 115-139 (2006).
* Gay is Good: The Moral Case for Marriage Equality and More, 17 Yale J.L. & Feminism 139-184 (2005).
* The Definition of Disability in the Americans With Disabilities Act: Its Successes and Shortcomings, 9 Emp. Rts. & Emp. Pol’y J. 473-498 (2005) (co-authored piece).

In her paper, “Moral Conflict and Liberty: Gay Rights and Religion,” Feldblum argues for legislative and judicial “outcomes that will allow LGBT people to live lives of honesty and safety in today’s society.”

and so it goes,
