Limbaugh took on opponents of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act this week. “What happens if you love your dog?”
The argument that “gay” people are being treated with bias for “who they love” doesn’t make sense, Limbaugh said. “This business of who you love, where does that stop?” he mused.
Talking about the demonization of a local pizzaria that allegedly refused to cater a gay wedding reception, Limbaugh reminded listeners that a similar social media campaign had failed to pull him off the air: “There is on Twitter this thing called StopRush, and it’s people attacking me and this program much the way Indiana is being attacked today. … It’s 10 people. We researched it. We know who the people are. We know where they live. Virtually 85% of all the so-called outrage e-mails and tweets are generated by 10 people, made to look as though they are thousands and thousands and thousands. It’s all fake. It’s all phony (Free audio).”
Savage has some questions for those calling for the repeal of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. “Should a Muslim baker be forced to make a cake with the image of Mohammed on it? What about forcing a Jewish caterer to supply plates of ham to an event? Look at what fanatical fascists are doing to America, by violating and attacking religious freedom. They’re obsessed with gay marriage, and in the process they throw out everyone else’s religious rights (Free audio).”
Looking at the results of a recent Reuters poll, Savage asked his listeners, “Who is more of a threat to this country? Putin or Obama?”
Calling the president “more of a danger to our future than Assad is right now,” Savage added: “Do you think the leader of Canada could fly off on a golfing vacation while people are standing around looking for jobs? Do you think the Canadian prime minister could start a war in the Middle East and back Iran and get away with it? … But things are a little different here. People are intimidated by Michelle and Barack. You’re afraid to say a word (Full audio).”
Klein talked with the former chief of the U.N.’s nuclear watchdog about what to expect from the soon-to-be-announced agreement between the U.S. and Iran.
In a historic development, Arab countries formed a joint army to try to retake Yemen. Klein explained what this means for the future of the Middle East.
He also sat down with Dr. Frances Fox Piven herself, the co-author of the infamous Cloward-Piven Strategy. The strategy, rumored to be favored by Obama and his cohorts, involves hastening the fall of capitalism by overloading the government with impossible demands for “entitlements,” thus pushing society into economic collapse.
Klein investigated whether or not Sen. Ted Cruz really is a “natural born” citizen and constitutionally eligible to serve as president.
Finally, Klein interviewed Lebanese member of parliament Samy Gemayel about the plight of Christians in the Mideast.
Levin explained how the left is intentionally mischaracterizing Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. He says the law is about civil rights and tolerance, but you’d never know it by listening to “the media and leftwing kooks and just plain stupid people.” For one thing, the first versions of this law were sponsored by liberal Democrats like Ted Kennedy (Free audio).
Who is winning the “talk show primary”? That’s what Breitbart.com calls the popularity of various residential contenders with a small but influential group: conservative talk show hosts.
“Levin was a big cheerleader for Rubio during the first term senator’s run for the upper chamber back in 2012,” they point out. In mid-March, Levin again had Rubio on his show and was full of praise, saying, “He is likable as hell … and he answers everything I ask him, everything. He doesn’t duck.”
This week, Ingraham revealed that she is launching a new conservative news and opinion website called LifeZette.
According to Politico, “Ingraham’s new site will likely reflect the pundit’s conservative ideology and champion her pet causes” and will be branded “a cultural and political web destination for conservatives and independents.”
On the air this week, Ingraham’s guest included Donald Trump, who said he was unimpressed by both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush; Carly Fiorina, who said she was “embarrassed that so many CEOs have caved to the pressure” of gay activists who oppose Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act; and Mark Halperin, who says Jeb Bush realizes that he’ll have to work hard to get grassroots support from the GOP base (Free audio).
“I want to talk to you about Harry Reid, who I believe is quite possibly evil,” Glenn Beck told his audience mid-week. “I’m leaving on the table that he’s gone insane.”
This was after the retiring Utah senator admitted that he’d lied about Mitt Romney’s tax returns during the previous election, and didn’t feel any remorse.
Beck, who is a Mormon, went on, “This is a guy who shares my faith,” then quickly added, “Actually, no he doesn’t. … Because if that’s the faith, I don’t want anything to do with the faith.”
“What’s the Muslim thing, ‘taqiyya,’ where you can lie to further Islam?” Beck’s co-host Pat Gray joked. “I don’t think they have that in Mormonism (Free audio).”
Beck also took aim at Indiana Gov. Mike Pence after he caved under pressure from gay rights groups.
Pence, said Beck via Twitter, is “doing a horrible job” defending the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
“No one is for discrimination against anybody,” Mr. Beck said. “Let’s be really clear. I’m not for discrimination against gays. But I’m also not for discrimination against religious people. There comes a time when we all have to live together. There comes a time when we’re all going to have to accept that people are different and celebrate true diversity.”
