Jewish Gun Group Condemns Nugent

headdesk550x290

One of the defenses weapons-grade asshole Ted Nugent has given for his anti-Semitic posting on Facebook is that he can't be anti-Semitic because he was friends with the guy who founded Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. But that group has now condemned Nugent on its Facebook page: … [Read more...]

Is an Indifferent Universe Frightening or Liberating?

DaleMcGowan550

My good friend Dale McGowan has an eloquent and inspiring message for Valentine's Day that offers love, romantic or otherwise, as the solution for what he terms the "crushing universal indifference" of a world with no god. And while I certainly agree with him about the importance of love in all its forms, I have a different take on that indifference. … [Read more...]

Bryan Fischer and the Water Canopy

BryanFischer550

One of the more ridiculous young earth creationist "theories" is the one that claims that all the water from the flood came from a "vapor canopy" that surrounded the earth prior to the flood, which then fell to earth. How dumb is this claim? Dumb enough that Bryan Fischer believes in it. … [Read more...]

Savage: Sanders Will Use Street Gangs for Communist Killing Spree

MichaelSavage550

The terminally unhinged Michael Savage is recycling one of his failed predictions. He has in the past claimed that President Obama was building a private army of street gangs to impose his evil agenda on the country. That hasn't happened, of course, so now he's decided that it's really Bernie Sanders who will do it. … [Read more...]

Cruz Defends Mike Bickle Endorsement

TedCruz550x290

The Ted Cruz campaign is defending the endorsement of Mike Bickle, a far-right dominionist and self-declared "prophet" who says that God sent Hitler to hunt down the Jews, and refusing to repudiate those views. The excuse: He's just one of many Christian leaders who have endorsed Cruz. As if that was in any way relevant. … [Read more...]

Pat Robertson on Women in Combat

PatRobertson550

The Pentagon recently announced that it was expanding the opportunities for women in combat units and the Christian right has been flipping out ever since. But the weirdest reaction has to be from Pat Robertson, who delivered an absolutely bizarre diatribe about it that included Fifty Shades of Grey. … [Read more...]

Sovereign Citizens: Even Weirder Than You Think

headdesk550x290

Vox continues its look at the utterly bizarre ideology of so-called "sovereign citizens," many of whom have committed violence in recent years. Their ideology is even more bizarre than I thought and I'd been reading about them for years. Sometimes they even file legal documents signed with their fingerprint in blood. … [Read more...]

Ben Carson Still Walking Dead

BenCarson550

After finishing dead last in New Hampshire with only 2% of the vote, you might think that Ben Carson would end his presidential campaign. You'd be wrong. He's striking the old "the people just want me to win so badly, I can't let them down" pose and vowing to continue his walking dead campaign. … [Read more...]

Ezra Klein on Donald Trump

Trumpface2

I quoted Annie Lowrey's take on Donald Trump after the infamous "pussy" rally the night before the New Hampshire primary, so now let's hear from her boyfriend (might be husband now, I'm not sure), Ezra Klein. As usual, he is as eloquent as she is and as perceptive of the dangers of Trump's unexpectedly successful candidacy. … [Read more...]

City Council Removes Rabbi to Pray in Jesus’ Name

ChurchState550x290

We've grown accustomed to ignorant local officials defying the First Amendment by peeing all over their territory with Christian prayers, but the city council in Chino Valley, Arizona is taking it to the extreme. They had a rabbi ejected from a meeting so they could give a prayer in Jesus' name. … [Read more...]

Move Over, Steve Doocy

EricBolling550

I have long ranked the three dumbest men on Fox News, and perhaps on all of television, in this order: Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, Eric Bolling. But Bolling is making a strong big to move up with his latest mind-boggling statement of utter ignorance. He actually claimed that Islam is the only religion that has motivated killing people. … [Read more...]

Fischer: Make Legislators Take David Barton Test

BryanFischer550

I troll the right wing fever swamps every day, so I'm rarely left astonished anymore. Stupidity is pretty much the only currency in use there. But every once in a while someone will come up with something that leaves me in a state that combines laughter with amazement. That's your cue, Bryan Fischer. … [Read more...]
