Far-Right Constitution Party Makes Its CPAC Debut

Comments Off on Far-Right Constitution Party Makes Its CPAC Debut

Making its CPAC debut this year is the Constitution Party, which was originally organized in 1992 by right-wing activist Howard Phillips as the U.S. Taxpayers Party. Flyers being handed out at the group’s booth declare that it is the party of integrity, liberty and prosperity. According to the party, more than 75 of its candidates collectively earned over 1.3 million votes in 2016, and it was the first time the group’s presidential candidate got more than 200,000 votes.

The Constitution Party’s materials say that the party is needed because both “elitist-controlled major parties” have abandoned the principles of the nation’s founders. But one could argue that the group’s timing is a little off; its traditional values, states’ rights, anti-abortion, pro-gun, anti-immigration, pro-national-defense agenda is pretty hard to distinguish from the Republican Party in the era of Donald Trump.

Much of the Constitution Party’s 2016 platform sounds like the rhetoric heard from the Religious Right’s Christian-nation faction. Its preamble starts this way:

The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and …read more

Ted Cruz Declares That The GOP Is ‘Happily The Party Of Homer’ Simpson

Comments Off on Ted Cruz Declares That The GOP Is ‘Happily The Party Of Homer’ Simpson

Sen. Ted Cruz kicked off his appearance at CPAC today by declaring that, when it comes to protecting gun rights, the Republican Party is proudly the party of Homer Simpson.

Conservative commentator Ben Domenech said that the current debate over gun rights was aptly summed up by an episode of “The Simpsons” in which Lisa asserted that the Second Amendment is “just a remnant from revolutionary days [and] has no meaning today,” while Homer insisted that the Constitution guarantees him a right to own a gun because otherwise “the king of England could just walk in here any time he wants and start shoving you around.”

“I think the Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson,” Cruz responded, “and Republicans are happily the party of Homer and Bart and Maggie and Marge.”

Of course, in that episode, Marge was vehemently opposed to Homer owning a gun and eventually moved herself, Lisa, Bart, and Maggie out of the house because of his recklessness.

Star Parker Blames Florida Shooting Victims For Not Being Nice Enough To Attacker

Comments Off on Star Parker Blames Florida Shooting Victims For Not Being Nice Enough To Attacker

Conservative activist Star Parker blamed the survivors of the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school for helping to bring about the massacre by not making friends with the future gunman, saying in a television interview yesterday that students protesting in favor of strengthened gun laws are acting like part of “a nation of victims” and that “whoever sat next to him in class, they’d better not be the ones who are protesting out there today.”

Parker spoke yesterday with EWTN host Lauren Ashburn, who played video clips of students from Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School protesting in favor of stricter gun laws before asking Parker to explain why “you blame students for this shooting.”

“Well, not necessarily one individual student, but we can call for gun control if we want to as a nation, we can call for more federal laws if we want to as a nation, but usually when you’re faced with tragedy, you first check yourself,” Parker said. “We have forgotten how to just look inwardly. We’ve become such a nation of victims that we’ve forgotten to say, ‘Wait a minute, what could I have done?’”

“Well, what could these poor students have done?” Ashburn asked.

“Well, perhaps …read more

ACU Hid Details About Wayne LaPierre’s CPAC Speech, Then Lied About It

Comments Off on ACU Hid Details About Wayne LaPierre’s CPAC Speech, Then Lied About It

When the American Conservative Union released a detailed schedule for its Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) earlier this week, one previously scheduled speaker wasn’t on it: the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre. When this prompted speculation that LaPierre’s speaking slot had been cut in the wake of the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school, the ACU’s Matt Schlapp tweeted that “our friend” LaPierre was still scheduled to speak at the event. The Washington Examiner later reported that, unsurprisingly, the details of LaPierre’s speech were being kept under wraps “as a precaution…amid outrage among anti-gun protesters” in the aftermath of the shooting.

This morning, CPAC handed out schedules to participants showing that LaPierre would be speaking at 10:00 am. Having successfully avoided drawing mass protests, LaPierre then gave an outrageous speech about how his opponents are “saboteurs” intent on destroying the Constitution and capitalism.

But to listen to Schlapp tell it, the ACU was perfectly open about LaPierre’s schedule and his inclusion in the event was part of an effort to have an open and respectful conversation about gun violence.

In an interview with NPR’s David Greene this morning, Schlapp said that inviting LaPierre to speak was …read more

Wayne LaPierre: The Democratic Party Is ‘Infested With Saboteurs’ Who Hate America

Comments Off on Wayne LaPierre: The Democratic Party Is ‘Infested With Saboteurs’ Who Hate America

The NRA’s Wayne LaPierre spoke at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference today, where he blamed Barack Obama for allowing the Democratic Party to be taken over the “European-style socialists” who refuse to work with the NRA to implement “common-sense” solutions to ending gun violence such as eliminating gun-free zones and “hardening schools.”

LaPierre railed against “the shameful politicization” of the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school by “a poisonous movement” that seeks to exploit gun violence for political gain.

LaPierre said that during “the Obama decade,” pro-Second Amendment Democrats “have been forced out as a tidal wave of new, European-style socialists seized control of the Democratic Party. Obama promised a fundamental transformation of our country, and you know what? It began with his own national party, a party that is now infested with saboteurs who don’t believe in capitalism, don’t believe in the Constitution, don’t believe in our freedom and don’t believe in America as we know it.”

“They hide behind labels like ‘Democrat,’ ‘left-wing’ and ‘progressive’ to make their socialist agenda more palatable,” he added, “and that is terrifying.”

Majority of non-stun halal slaughterhouses have failed hygiene inspections

Comments Off on Majority of non-stun halal slaughterhouses have failed hygiene inspections

The majority of slaughterhouses producing non-stunned halal meat in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland have failed inspections in the last three years by the Food Standards Agency. Only one in seven other slaughterhouses have done likewise. Data has revealed that non-stun slaughterhouses are also failing to maintain the hygiene standards required by law. Humanists UK has called upon the Government to end the exemptions to animal welfare regulations that allow non-stunned slaughter, which causes unnecessary suffering to the animal.

According to data from the Food Standards Agency and the Halal Monitoring Committee, 53% of non-stun halal slaughterhouses have failed inspections compared to just 14% of other slaughter houses. Furthermore, 68% have major hygiene issues, a significantly higher proportion than th 40% in slaughterhouses that stun their animals before slaughter.

The figures also reveal that 22% of non-stun slaughterhouses had major animal welfare issues compared to only 9% of other slaughterhouses. Last month, four men who worked at a non-stun slaughterhouse pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary cruelty to sheep after footage revealed them abusing the animals.

These figures suggest that there is a correlation between the method of slaughter and the regard shown towards the animal and its environment in …read more

UK Muslims demand removal of ‘hateful’ messiah billboards

Comments Off on UK Muslims demand removal of ‘hateful’ messiah billboards

UK Muslims have reportedly launched a ‘coordinated campaign’ to have ‘offensive’ Ahmadiyya billboards removed from sites in London, Manchester and Glasgow.

An email template opposing the billboards – seen by Christian Today – claims that:

The billboard incites hatred, it is deeply offensive and hurtful to millions of British citizens.

The email urges other Muslims to write to the Advertising Standards Authority, the Metropolitan Police and the Charity Commission to demand their removal.

The ASA confirmed that it has received 33 complaints so far about the adverts. A spokesman said people have claimed the billboards are:

Misleading because they believe it is not consistent with the teachings of the Koran.

He added:

Due to the perceived misrepresentation of Muslim beliefs, complainants also consider the ad offensive on this basis.

Launched by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a heavily persecuted minority Muslim sect, the billboards aim to promote the idea, considered heretical by mainstream Islam, that the Messiah promised in the Koran has already come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.

The True Islam campaign said the billboard aims to educate the public on the beliefs of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

But the campaign has prompted outrage from Christians, Muslims and Jews who all have notions of a …read more

Right Wing Bonus Tracks: Brownback And The Prayer Warriors

Comments Off on Right Wing Bonus Tracks: Brownback And The Prayer Warriors
  • Dave Kubal of Intercessors for America reports that he “and other prayer leaders had the privilege of praying with Ambassador Brownback at the State Department” yesterday.
  • Tom DeLay says liberals are talking about gun laws after the school shooting in Florida because they’re “scared to death that they’ll have to discuss our culture, families breaking up, illegitimate births, the fact that we kicked God out of the public square.”
  • Jerry Newcombe declares that the Parkland shooting shows that “we are reaping what we have sown by essentially disallowing God in the schools.”
  • NOM is encouraging activists to sign its petition thanking Betsy DeVos for “protecting the safety and privacy of all our children by reversing the dangerous policy of the previous administration that sought to open intimate and private facilities like locker rooms and bathrooms in our nation’s schools to students of the opposite biological sex based upon their claimed gender identity.”
  • Finally, the Massachusetts Republican Party changed its rules yesterday so that the party will not have to provide assistance to anti-LGBTQ activist Scott Lively’s gubernatorial campaign.
