Liberals on Paranoia: Right Wing Concern is Simply Paranoia and Hence Supposed Evidence of Conservative Lunacy but Same Behavior Totally Acceptable and Non-Loony from Liberals

Liberals on Paranoia: Right Wing Concern is Simply Paranoia and Hence Supposed Evidence of Conservative Lunacy but Same Behavior Totally Acceptable and Non Loony from Liberals

According to liberals, it’s downright nutty and loony when Christians, social conservatives or right wingers express concern at over-reach by liberals, courts, or the government, or what have you, but it’s not any of those pejorative things when expressed by a left wing person, group, politician, or organization.

Hmm. Let me give you a couple of recent examples.

Right Wing Watch, which is a left wing site, likes to mock conservatives or Christians over homosexual militants – our nation’s very own Gay Gestapo – by tweeting things such as:

  • Matt Barber: gay rights advocates are like a “horde of locusts” that seeks to “homosexualize” kids http://bit.ly/1o0duWDsource)

Obviously, Right Wing Watch feels that homosexual rights proponents are not the least bit like a “horde of locusts” and that it’s craziness to suggest that they are, dog gone it!

Here’s another liberal example:

  • Right Wing Watch @RightWingWatch · 6h
  • Matt Barber and Mat Staver agree that gay marriage is “the brainchild” of Satan himself & the bidding of the Devil: http://bit.ly/TwyPgA (source)

Here’s another example from July 2014:
(Link): Internet Conservatives Flip Out Over Imaginary Immigrant Invasion

The RWW (Right Wing Watch) url in that second tweet will take you to this page at RWW:

(Link): Barber: Gay Marriage Is ‘The Brainchild’ Of Satan

Here is an excerpt from that RWW page:

  • On today’s “Faith and Freedom” radio broadcast, Mat Staver and Matt Barber cited recent remarks made by Pope Francis about how “the Devil wants to destroy” the family in order to declare that gay marriage is “the brainchild” of Satan himself.
  • “Marriage is the cornerstone institution of any healthy society,” Barber asserted, “and so clearly the Father of Lies, the Enemy of the World hates marriage…

I happen to be right wing, and a social conservative who does not agree with homosexuality, and I have a special loathing for the very homosexual militancy that RWW feels is simply a figment of the right wingers’ imagination, but I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say homosexuality is the “brainchild of Satan.”

The Bible, in the book of Romans (Romans 1:21-27), in regards to homosexuality, lesbianism, and other forms of non-hetero sexuality does not attribute these things to Satan but says:

  • 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
  • 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
  • 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
  • 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
  • 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
  • 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Further, if you’ve read this blog for any time at all, you know that although I am not “anti family” that I never- the- less feel that Christians and my fellow conservatives wrongly place too much emphasis on family, marriage, and natalism.

Another RWW tweet (source):

  • Will corporations soon cite biblical objections to minimum wage, collective bargaining and tax laws? http://bit.ly/1kSpMDI #HobbyLobby

Clearly, some liberals believe in a “slippery slope,” and think today’s ruling means that right wingers, or Christians, will try to tinker with minimum wage laws and other issues on the basis of their religious convictions.

Liberals (Link): banned large sodas in New York at one time, but I guess they think “nanny stating” is nothing to be concerned about – or, they don’t mind secular over-reach but panic only over religious-based motivations.

This is another liberal editorial, this one on the recent ruling involving Hobby Lobby, and shows some panic over what today’s ruling might mean in the future:

(Link): In Hobby Lobby Ruling, a Court So Wrong in So Many Ways by Sally Kohn

Here are a few excerpts:

  • Reliance on junk science, backwards ideas about religious freedom—it’s all there in the conservative majority’s awful Hobby Lobby ruling.
  • … The owners of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood cannot be allowed to impose their religious beliefs on their employees.
  • But it’s the conflation of these points that is truly frightening: the idea that in continuing to give corporations more and more unchecked power and reign, we are giving them the power of religious tyranny — the ability to wantonly and unilaterally impose religion as they see fit on their workers and perhaps more.
  • Under such a ruling, it’s not far-fetched to imagine companies (genuinely or disingenuously) claiming religious exemptions in refusing to serve gay customers or denying health insurance coverage to the multi-racial child of an employee.
  • In fact, what would stop companies from saying that their religion makes them opposed to taxes or obeying pollution regulations or you name it? Just what we need in America, more corporations with more excuses to not play by the same rules that ordinary Americans have to obey.
  • But in its rulings, this Court repeatedly gives more power to the interests of already-powerful corporations than the needs of the American people.

So, there we have some double standards on display.

If right wingers show concern over the homosexual militants and their allies, who are in the nasty habit of abusing or steamrolling over people, in their quest to cram homosexuality down everyone’s throats (ie, harassing people over it, suing people, getting them fired), see, for instance,

– there’s absolutely nothing to be concerned about, but, when the Supreme Court rules that a Christian-owned business does not have to fund all forms of contraception, oh noes, look out, Christians will be sending women into forced labor camps next, or to the electric chair!1111!!!!

But such concern is not loony paranoia when expressed by the left, according to the left against the right, no, it’s only indicative of nuttiness when expressed by the right. See the double standard there?

Excerpts

  • “Just because it was only restricted to women’s health access doesn’t mean that it doesn’t create a devastating precedent which says that women’s health care should be treated differently,” Carmon [journalist with left wing MSNBC.com] added. She added that the Republican Party is the biggest beneficiary of today’s ruling. “So, the context of this is an all-out assault on access to contraception and access to other reproductive health care services.”
  • HotAir’s Karl has accumulated some of the best examples of liberal “schadenfreude,” as he’s dubbed it, in which the left utterly and intentionally misconstrues the scope of this ruling. Incidentally, their reaction also helps to service what appears to be a widely shared victimhood fantasy.
  • We’ve seen indications that the left believes this decision is a prelude to theocracy [what follows are tweets]:

It’s pretty rich of liberals to depict Christians and conservatives as being paranoid nutters over some issues, when they themselves do the same thing on other issues.

(Link): Hobby Lobby opponents: Supreme Court probably legalized xenophobia, racism

Excerpt:

  • The left has been… animated in their objections to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case which declared the mandate in the Affordable Care Act which forced employers to provide employees with abortifacients drugs over their religious objections to be unconstitutional.
  • In spite of what many have characterized as the narrow and tailored ruling by the Court, some political and legal observers have determined that the ruling is a step toward the legalization of discrimination.
  • One of the more creative arguments in this direction was submitted by NPR’s legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg. On Monday, she suggested that the Court has created a legal pathway for employers to discriminate against their employees on the basis of race, sexual orientation, and even national origin.

October 2014 edit. —EBOLA—

Now I would add the ebola outbreak to the list. It seems to me that many left wingers have been saying ebola is not a serious threat to the USA, while it’s mainly been conservatives calling the alarm and asking the Government to halt all commercial flights from ebola stricken nations.

Your U.S. liberals get up in arms about this, and insist that right wingers are being paranoid and over-hyping ebola’s threat to Americans.

Meanwhile, the ebola situation continually gets worse, as I’ve been keeping tracking of in (Link): this post (at the bottom, under the section entitled “UPDATE”), so it’s not unwarranted or nutty or paranoid for American conservatives to express concern at the situation.

The Democrats Have a Marriage Problem

The Democrats Have a Marriage Problem

I am a Republican, right wing, not a Democrat and goodness no, I did not vote for Obama.

I am a single woman, but I do not think Obama is doing a good job. I think he’s doing a terrible job. I can’t wait until he is out of office.

(However, I do have friends who are liberals and Democrats. I don’t automatically refuse to befriend someone just because their views do not line up with all of mine.)

I am posting this story because it relates to marriage, and that is one of the topics I sometimes discuss on this blog.

(Link): The Democrats Have a Marriage Problem

Long excerpt:

    Posted 04/08/2014 06:38 PM ET

    Politics: This fall, Democrats will no doubt resurrect the “war on women” theme to try to hold the Senate. But they don’t really care about all women, just the unmarried ones. The IBD/TIPP poll shows why.

    According to the Washington Post, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is building a huge computer database that will let it predict women’s marital status.
    That way they can “pinpoint unmarried women as the target of specific, poll-test messages,” according to one source quoted in the story.

    Despite all the talk among Democrats and the media about the “gender gap” that has supposedly resulted from what they say are Republicans’ anti-women policies, the real gap is between married and single women.

    IBD/TIPP’s monthly survey finds that, on issue after issue, single women are more liberal than their married counterparts — often by wide margins.

    Single women are more content with the current state of affairs, more approving of Obama and far more likely to support his big-government policies.

    Some examples:

    Direction of the country. While 57% of single women are satisfied with the direction of the country, just 32% of married women are. When asked about morals and ethics, the results are very much the same. And on each of these questions, the view of single women tracks those of self-identified liberals.

    Economy. Single women are far more upbeat about the economy as well. More than half (51%) think the economy is improving, and 50% don’t think the country is in a recession right now. Among married women, those results are 39% and 41%, respectively. These answers, too, track the liberal/conservative split. (Oddly, single women are also far more likely to say that someone in their household is unemployed — 27% vs. 17%.)

    Obama. More than half of single women (55%) approve of the job President Obama is doing, compared with just 31% of married women. (His overall approval rate is 40%.) There are similar divides when it comes to grading Obama’s leadership and his handling of the economy, the budget and job creation.

James Dobson’s Family Talk Begs For Donations

James Dobson’s Family Talk Begs For Donations

You can visit the barfy “Family Talk” group here (on Facebook). Why is it barfy?

If you are single, especially a never married, childless adult over the age of 30, the posts and photos on the page will make you hurl.

The top entry on the page has a graphic reading, “I love my spouse in every situation!” (You can view that post (Link): here.)

I will give the folks at Dobson’s “Family Talk” props for (Link): the post with content by pastor Greg Laurie on how to handle the death of a loved one, because death is something that affects EVERYONE, regardless or marital status.

Farther down the page, though, is a post with a photo of a laughing couple with text reading: “When two people Love each other deeply…” (you can view that post (Link): here). Clearly, given the photo and such, it is referring to marital / romantic love, not the love that two friends can have for one another. Christian culture never acknowledges or promotes Friendship Love.

It remains obsessed with pushing a very narrow view of love: love for God, love for spouse, and sometimes, love for one’s own off spring. What of people who have never married or who are childless? These sorts of messages are hurtful or irrelevant.

Anyway, Dobson recently sent out a letter begging donors for more money. You can see it here:

(Link): Dec 2013 Letter from Dr James Dobson of Family Talk

The relevant portion of the guy’s letter, and the parts I found interesting (as in nauseatingly obsessed with “marriage and family”):

    Family Talk is not only attempting to strengthen marriage, parenting and the family; we are also working tirelessly to defend righteousness in the culture.

    For example, with the help of the Alliance Defending Freedom, (ADF), we will be bringing a lawsuit this month against HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to stop her Department from assaulting the Sanctity of Human Life.

    As I hope you know, the Obama Administration has mandated and intends to require that pro-life organizations, such as ours, and our healthcare insurers or administrators provide abortion-inducing drugs and devices to our employees, and thereby violate our deeply held convictions.

    Family Talk has not yielded to those demands…

    I must close by telling you that our contributions during the summer and fall of 2013 have been far below our needs. It isn’t difficult to figure out where that leads.

    It is likely that this shortfall in income has been caused in part by economic uncertainty and the utter foolishness of Obamacare. But if you can help us here at the end of the year, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Will you prayerfully consider a gift this month to help us reach and impact millions of families? In the process, it is our desire to assist you in building your family legacy.

Now, some liberal Christians, or ex-Christians and atheists and agnostics, who I saw discussing this letter, on another website or two, had a fit over Dobson’s comments about Obamacare, or they laughed about it. They were offended or put off by the anti Obamacare commentary.

I do not care about that; I’m not an Obama supporter and resent the fact I will be forced, by the Obama admin, to buy something I don’t want and do not need.

Dobson can rag on Obamacare all he likes, and it doesn’t bother me at all.

((Link, off site): Owning Up to the Obamacare Lies / Liberals are finally admitting, quietly, that conservative critiques were right all along.)

So the liberal Christians, atheists, and ex-Christians can go suck a lemon on that score.

(You know, just because you were hurt or offended by a “conservative” Church at some point, or by conservative theology, does not mean you have to turn a 180 and become a liberal or an Obama-supporting Democrat, or toss out a literalist understanding of the Bible, or mock those who still adhere to literalism.)

What I find repellent are these “pro family groups” asking people for money. These idiots do little to nothing to promote adult singles, or anyone who does not fit into the very narrow paradigm of “married with children.”

They feed into the evangelical, Reformed, Fundamentalist, and Baptist tendency to worship marriage and procreation (having children).

This also reminds me of the news story several months ago where Focus on the Family was not only firing employees due to budget shortfalls, but also begging donors for five million dollars to make a “pro family” film. The world does not need a “pro family” film, what a waste of five million dollars.
