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...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Cruz v Norquist

If you're a Republican politician and you've managed to be too extreme on budget and spending issues even for Grover Norquist, that's probably a good sign that you've gone off the deep end. In an interview with the Washington Post, Norquist hammered Ted Cruz: … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Charisma Mag vs Beck

It's wingnut on wingnut crime time again, kids. This time it's Charisma magazine, specifically author Ron Cantor, taking on Glenn Beck over the latter's goofy claim that the pilgrims were the descendants of the true lost tribes of Israel. And goofy it certainly is. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: NRLC vs Local Chapter

Ooh, this is fun. The National Right to Life Committee has broken ties with its affiliate in Cleveland because that local group said it would not support Sen. Rob Portman due to his pro-marriage equality stance. NLRC says this violates their rules: … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Beck vs Shoebat

Walid Shoebat, the right wing's favorite fake "ex-terrorist," went on Rick Wiles' TruNews radio show and he and his son Theodore launched a blistering and incoherent attack on Glenn Beck. Because Beck is leading people to "Chrislam" and this has something to do with deism and...well, just read it. See if you can make any sense out of it. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Gheen v Fox News

William Gheen, the head of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), is mighty upset at Fox News. It seems that the news channel just isn't working hard enough to make people afraid of the immigration reform bill being put together in the Senate. So he's written an open letter to the network making a rather warped argument. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Jones vs O’Reilly

Okay kids, pop the popcorn and set your DVRs to stun. This one is going to be really fun to watch. It seems Bill O'Reilly put up a graphic of Alex Jones with the words "hate speech" next to them on his show last week and Jones is losing his mind -- or what's left of it -- over the whole thing. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Wiles vs Jones

In a battle of crazy conspiracy theorists who think everything is an Illuminati plot, far right -- I mean really far right -- radio show host Rick Wiles is attacking Alex Jones for helping promote a rally of armed gun owners marching on Washington, DC scheduled for July 4. … [Read more...]
