Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Pat Robertson vs…Pat Robertson?


In today's wingnut on wingnut crime battle, I present Pat Robertson vs Pat Robertson. In one corner, we have Pat Robertson, who has repeatedly invoked Sodom and Gomorrah as proof that God is going to destroy America because of gay marriage and every other advance in equality for LGBT people. For example, about six months ago he said this on the 700 Club: … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Bradlee Dean vs Glenn Beck


It's wingnut on wingnut crime time again, kids. In this corner, we have self-declared prophet Glenn Beck, master of the chalkboard and of unintentionally hilarious fits of melodrama. And in the other corner, we have Bradlee Dean, drummer for a shitty Christian rap-rock band, radio show host and the undisputed king of the velour tracksuit who thinks Muslims are more moral than Christians because they kill gay people like the Bible says. Dean isn't happy with Beck being all gloomy: … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: LaBarbera vs Mohler


Imagine being such an inhinged homophobe that Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Evangelical Seminary and a virulently anti-gay bigot, isn't anti-gay enough for you. After all, Mohler tells Christians that they shouldn't even attend the same-sex weddings of loved ones, among many other warped points of view. But that just isn't good enough for Peter LaBarbera. Because Mohler thinks that gay people aren't easily turned straight but face a lifelong struggle with homosexuality. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Farah vs Coulter

Credit: Gage Skidmore

During the Republican presidential debate on Wednesday night, Ann Coulter apparently got so fed up with the GOP's pandering to Israel that she tweeted out, "How many fucking Jews do these people think there are in the United States?" That got Worldnetdaily owner Joseph Farah hopping mad and accusing her of anti-Semitism. And he's shocked -- SHOCKED -- to find out that Coulter has "degenerated" into a "slur machine." … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Rush vs Beck


It's wingnut on wingnut crime time again, and this time it's Erik Rush vs Glenn Beck. Erik Rush is disappointed, so terribly disappointed, in Beck for saying that conservatives should never have chased all that birther nonsense for the last seven years. In fact, Beck mocked the whole obsession with Obama's eligibility, one of the few reasonable stances Beck has ever taken. So Rush offers up this "rebuttal." … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Beck vs Palin


Glenn Beck spoke at the big Tea Party rally against the Iran deal in Washington on Wednesday, joining no fewer than three reality TV stars (Donald Trump, Sarah Palin and one of the Duck Dynasty douchebags) in speaking out against the deal. Thursday on his show, he announced that he had finally figured out that Sarah Palin was nothing more than a clown, apparently because she saw her talking to Donald Trump. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Bryan Fischer vs Ben Carson

Credit: Michael Vadon

Ben Carson has been trying to have it both ways on the subject of same-sex marriage (like President Obama and Hillary Clinton did for years) by saying he's in favor of civil unions but not in favor of gay marriage. His argument for this was as dumb as every other argument for it. He says that the difference is that marriage is a purely religious thing, while civil unions are not: … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Jones vs Beck

Okay, this one cracks me up. Dueling conspiracy theorists Alex Jones and Glenn Beck are not happy with one another and Alex Jones now claims that Beck is a traitor and a "White House operative." Imagine being so crazed and extreme that Glenn Beck is viewed as too moderate. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Creech vs Robertson

In the wake of the Ken Ham - Bill Nye debate, Pat Robertson came out and said that young earth creationism is a "joke" and criticized Ham for it. Ham was unhappy about it, of course. But Rev. Mark Creech of the Christian Action League is really upset and says that Robertson committed blasphemy over it. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: King v Paul

Rand Paul is planning to file a class action suit on behalf of some 250,000 people against the NSA over its data mining operations. It's a mostly pointless gesture (there are already at least two such cases going on behalf of specific plaintiffs, with district court rulings, and a class action suit will almost certainly be dismissed), but Rep. Peter King is spewing his usual stupid and hypocritical outrage over it. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Keyes vs Cheney

While Liz Cheney is taking heavy criticism for demeaning her sister Mary's same-sex marriage and family, Alan Keyes has another problem with Dick Cheney's perhaps even more evil daughter: She just isn't anti-gay enough for his tastes. Imagine being so anti-gay that Liz Cheney isn't anti-gay enough for you. After all, this is a man who disowned his own daughter for being gay. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: DeMar vs Norquist

One of the most persistent narratives the far right likes to push is the notion that they are outsiders, revolutionaries out to destroy the hidebound orthodoxy of The Elites (while pretending, of course, they are not at all "elite" themselves). And it's their favorite way to attack the enemy within conservatism, those famous RINOs and "Washington insiders." This is the tactic that Gary DeMar, a genuine Christian reconstructionist, takes in attacking Grover Norquist for his criticism of Ted Cruz. … [Read more...]
