This week’s Supreme Court “gay marriage” case is pitting pundit against pundit. After Bill O’Reilly referred to same-sex marriage opponents as “Bible thumpers,” Rush Limbaugh went on the defensive.
Comparing O’Reilly to Ted Baxter, the vain, unpopular anchorman on the old “Mary Tyler Moore Show,” Limbaugh accused the Fox News host of “marginalizing” a good portion of his own audience.
Then Rush blasted another TV commentator, this time MSNBC’s Toure, who Rush said had “smeared” Dr. Ben Carson (FREE audio).
Toure, Limbaugh said, “is a classic example of somebody who is dangerous precisely because of what he thinks he knows that isn’t right, and he took it upon himself to try to destroy Dr. Ben Carson. He did it in a vile, almost uncivilized manner. The things that he said about Ben Carson were just filthy. They were despicable. It was worse than calling him an Uncle Tom.”
Unlike many in the media, Dr. Savage devoted considerable time to this week’s celebrations of Easter and Passover (FREE audio).
He’s certain that “God can’t believe what’s happened to this country on so many levels. Violence. Pornography. Drugs. And here we are talking about something as trivial as gay marriage.”
Then he offered his own interpretation of the story of Passover: “We are all slaves to our own addictions, wants and lusts. Those are our Egypts. We are in the Egypt of our addictions. We are both the slaves and the slave masters … The Seder is a time to remember that we are all enslaved by ourselves, and we’re supposed to free ourselves.”
Like Limbaugh, Mark Levin was furious with Bill O’Reilly for dismissing gay marriage opponents as “Bible thumpers” (FREE audio).
“You’re a practicing Catholic,” Levin said of the Fox News host. “Have you heard what your priests have to say, all the way up to the pope? … You sound like Obama with your ‘clinging to your guns and Bible’ line.”
As a constitutional lawyer, Levin is ideally suited to the task of analyzing the Supreme Court case (FREE audio).
He noted that this unelected Court is once again imposing its political will on the rest of America, instead of waiting for citizens to come to a consensus about what direction society should take.
As a resident of Israel, Aaron Klein is in the perfect position to provide the most accurate analysis of the president’s recent trip there.
Klein also reveals his latest findings on government surveillance and corruption, all being funded by American tax dollars.
His guests include a forensic analyst who claims to have startling revelations about Obama’s life, and veteran comedian Jackie Mason, who had plenty to say about the president’s trip, as well as about immigration reform and amnesty for illegals (FREE audio).
“Stand tall on marriage.”
That was the advice Dr. John Eastman offered Laura and her listeners this week. The Chairman of the National Organization for Marriage contends that the definition of marriage should not be expanded to gay couples because “homosexual couples cannot procreate” (FREE audio).
Eastman added, “If people demonstrate courage and stand up to the fact that kids are better off with a mom and a dad, then ultimately we’ll be victorious on this issue.”
Beck’s audience is set to grow, now that he’s struck a deal with SiriusXM satellite radio.
Hourly updates courtesy of his TheBlaze Radio News have just begun airing on the SiriusXM “Patriot” channel 125. At the same time, channel 778 will become TheBlaze Radio Network, airing The Glenn Beck Program as well as shows by Jay Severin and other hosts.
Watch CPAC speech: ‘Create division, ridicule morality – those are happening’
by Drew Zahn
When Dr. Benjamin Carson lit up Barack Obama over his landmark health-care legislation at last month’s National Prayer Breakfast, it appears he was … holding back.
Not so in his speech today at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
“I’m want to talk a little bit about what’s logical and what’s common sense today, because we don’t hear a lot of that,” began Carson director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. “Liberals and everybody else should understand and enjoy common sense also. For some strange reason, sometimes they don’t.”Among his “common sense” barbs: Members of Congress ought to remember they work for the people, not all black people think alike, nor should they be expected to, and the current policies and tactics of Obama and his allies are working to “destroy this country.”
“Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation,” Carson posited. “I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military.
“It appears, coincidentally, that those are the very things that are happening right now,” Carson concluded.
The solution to this path of destruction, he suggested earlier in the speech, is an informed and active population willing to hold rogue government officials’ “feet to the fire.”
“Congress has a nine-percent approval rating, and yet we returned people at a rate of 90 percent to Congress. Now what does that tell you?” Carson asked. “What I’m saying to people, to the people of America today, is that we are responsible. This is a country that’s ‘for, of and by the people,’ not for, of and by the government, and if we turn it over to them, we cannot complain about what they’re doing. … We have to hold their feet to the fire.”
Dr. Carson’s full comments can be seen in the video above.
