Fischer: All Muslim Charities Fund Terrorism


Bryan Fischer, master of the totally unsupported assertion, said on his radio show this week that every single Muslim charity in the entire world is just a front to raise money for terrorism. He provides no evidence of that, of course, just a bald assertion. Probably the holy spirit told him or something. … [Read more...]

Geller’s Bizarre Definition of ‘Islamic Supremacism’


Unhinged anti-Muslim bigot Pam Geller is up in arms that a Muslim woman has made the U.S. Olympic team in fencing and will be wearing a hijab during the competition. And for some bizarre reason, she thinks that this one woman following her own religious beliefs is somehow imposing "Islamic supremacism" on the entire Olympic team. … [Read more...]

Carson: Islam Not a Religion, but a ‘Life Organization System’


The staggeringly hypocritical claim from the Christian right that Islam is not a religion but rather a political ideology is very commonly heard these days, but Ben Carson has a twist on this argument that makes it even more ridiculous. Here's what he told an audience in Iowa last week: … [Read more...]

Staver Makes an Idiotic Analogy


Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, has a unique gift for making monumentally stupid arguments. And like most right-wingers, he throws around terms and makes analogies that are just as inane. His latest bit of moronia is to claim that because Christian businesses aren't allowed to discriminate, gays are imposing a "jizya" tax like Muslims do. … [Read more...]

Muslim Group Donates 30,000 Bottles of Water in Flint

Showing just how devious and cunning those Muslims can be, a Muslim group in Dearborn, Michigan has donated 30,000 bottles of water to the people of Flint, where the state-appointed emergency manager managed to poison thousands of people by switching the water supply to one with a high lead content in order to save a few million dollars. … [Read more...]

Trump’s Muslim Ban is Anything But ‘Un-American’


This is more than a month old, but I just noticed it. After Donald Trump announced his plan to forbid all Muslim immigration and tourism, President Obama and others called it "un-American." But while it's certainly against our grandly stated ideals, it certainly fits perfectly well with this country's long history of anti-immigrant bigotry and xenophobia, as historian Ben Railton points out: … [Read more...]

Perkins’ Hypocritical ‘Religious Freedom’ Nonsense


Tony Perkins delivered his "state of the family" address on Monday night. As I predicted, no mention at all of all those families led by gay people. Because those aren't real families, you see, they're fake families. But the speech was full of the usual blather about religious freedom being the most important thing in the world -- as long as it applies only to Christians. … [Read more...]

White Supremacists Making Robocalls for Trump in Iowa


Here's some completely unsurprising news. A white supremacist group -- yes, they like to be called "white nationalists" now, but fuck them -- is making robocalls in Iowa on behalf of Donald Trump ahead of the caucuses in that state. Specifically, the calls support his plan to ban all Muslim immigration and tourism from the United States. … [Read more...]

Alabama Sues Feds Over Syrian Refugees


In a blatant attempt to pander to ignorant bigots, Gov. Robert Bentley of Arkansas has filed a lawsuit against the federal government over the placement of Syrian refugees in that state, claiming that they haven't given the state enough information about the three -- yes, a whopping total of three -- Syrian refugees who have been placed there. … [Read more...]

Bryan Fischer: There are No Muslims in Japan!

Screenshot from Youtube clip

Bryan Fischer bravely extends his record of being wrong about absolutely everything in a recent blog post in which he claims that there's no terrorism in Japan because there are almost no Muslims there and because they don't allow Muslims to become citizens or allow them to practice their religion. He is wrong on every single point, as is the person he cites from the Jewish Press: … [Read more...]

Legal Reality Makes Its Way to Georgia


In the frenzy of bigotry and xenophobia that gripped the Republican party after the terrorist attacks in Paris, Gov. Nathan Deal of Georgia was one of at least a couple dozen governors who issued executive orders forbidding the settling of Syrian refugees in their states. Then he apparently asked the attorney general if he could actually do that. Now he's rescinded that order. … [Read more...]

Bigot Attacks Muslim Store Clerk in Rhode Island


A drunk bigot in Rhode Island was caught on tape threatening to kill a Muslim store clerk, then lied to the media and police about it. He claims that the clerk was "badmouthing Christmas" and that's what provoked him to go on a threatening tirade. He also claims that he lost friends in the twin towers on 9/11, as if that would be in any way relevant at all. … [Read more...]
