Confederate Flag Lover Tries to Bomb Walmart

A Mississippi man who apparently has a serious Confederate flag fetish tried to bomb a Walmart after threatening the company, along with several others, for not being sufficiently supportive of that flag. Thankfully, the guy doesn't know much about bombmaking so it didn't cause a lot of damage or kill anyone. … [Read more...]

Another Planned Parenthood Clinic Attacked

And we have yet another attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in just the last couple months, in the wake of the release of doctored videos making people believe that PP is selling fetal body parts for profit. This time it was a juvenile armed with a hatchet who used it to destroy equipment at a clinic in Claremont, New Hampshire. The minor has been arrested. … [Read more...]

Fischer Freaks Out Over New DOJ Position

As noted previously, the Department of Justice has a new position, a domestic terrorism counsel, to track and respond to domestic groups that have engaged in terrorism (the Army of God, KKK, Aryan Nation, anti-abortion extremists, radical animal rights activists, radical environmentalists, etc) and the Christian is losing their minds over it. Bryan Fischer says they're now going to target all Christians! … [Read more...]

Another Planned Parenthood Clinic Targeted by Arsonists

For the second time in a couple weeks, a Planned Parenthood clinic has been set on fire by an arsonist. The last one was in Washington, this was is in Thousand Oaks, California, where domestic terrorists apparently threw a rock through a window, poured gasoline in and set the office on fire. This same office was vandalized just a few weeks ago. But I'm sure none of those good Christian "pro-lifers" could have done this, right? … [Read more...]

Deace Makes a Bizarre Argument About 9/11

Right wing radio talk show host Steve Deace is not a bright guy. In fact, he's really quite a dullard, both abysmally ignorant and incapable of thinking rationally when he's spouting off about politics. This would explain an absolutely bizarre column he wrote for the Moonie Times arguing that we missed the real lesson of 9/11, which is apparently that we should have then imposed the ideology of the hijackers, but in the name of Jesus instead. … [Read more...]

West Point Prof Publishes Horrifying Legal Paper

My former colleague Spencer Ackerman, now the national security editor for the Guardian, has a story about one of the most appalling papers I've ever heard of. A law professor at West Point named William Bradford has written a paper arguing that not only are Islamic holy sites a legitimate target for bombing by the U.S. military, but so are American legal scholars and journalists who are critics of the war on terror. … [Read more...]

Bangladeshi Government Sides With Fascist Islamic Murderers

In the worst possible response, the Bangladeshi government is taking the side of the Islamic fascists who have now murdered four atheist bloggers, warning other bloggers that if they write anything that "hurts religious sentiments" they will be arrested and face 14 years in prison. … [Read more...]

American Psychological Association Finally Bans Torture

In very good news, the American Psychological Association has finally banned participation in any kind of torture by its members. This comes after many psychologists helped the CIA develop torture techniques after 9/11, making huge amounts of money in the process. … [Read more...]

The Horror of Another Blogger Murdered in Bangladesh

Another atheist blogger in Bangladesh has been murdered by Muslim terrorists, the fourth one in the last year or so. Every time this happens, I find myself left in shock. I suppose I shouldn't be shocked anymore. Maybe horrified is more the right word. … [Read more...]

Khattala Must be Tried in Civilian Court

The right wing has had three responses to the capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala in Libya: 1) Oh, the timing is too convenient! (which is moronic); 2) It's no big deal, he was a bit player anyway; and 3) Send him to Gitmo! Torture him! Never mind that 2 and 3 contradict one another. Jack Goldsmith, an assistant attorney general in the Bush administration, says he must be tried in a civilian court under the law: … [Read more...]

Obama Caves on Drone Memo Secrecy

It's only taken several years, but the Most Transparent Administration in History (yeah, right) has decided not to appeal a federal court order requiring them to release the legal memo upon which they've based their authority to launch drone strikes that kill even American citizens. … [Read more...]

Terrorist Convicted in Civilian Court

And here we have yet another example of what Republicans screamed from the mountaintops could not happen, a Muslim terrorist was convicted in a civilian court in Manhattan and will now spend the rest of his life in a supermax prison for his crimes. Gee, who could have predicted that? … [Read more...]
