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...]

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...]

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...]

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...]

Bachmann: Progressive Income Tax Violates Ten Commandments

MicheleBachmann550

This Foundations of Freedom video series produced by professional liar David Barton is like a waterfall of stupidity, especially when Michele Bachmann is featured. In the latest edition, Bachmann informs us that a progressive income tax violates the Ten Commandments. … [Read more...]

Heidi Cruz Every Bit as Clueless as Ted and Rafael

TedCruz2550

Ted Cruz' wife Heidi is now getting in on the campaigning and she's quickly proving to be just as irrational and ignorant of history as her husband and father-in-law. In an interview on a North Carolina right-wing talk show this week, she spouted some real doozies. … [Read more...]

Another Welfare Drug Testing Regime Fails Badly

DrugTesting

Here's yet another example of a Republican-controlled legislature passing a law requiring that people on public assistance get drug tested and the number of applicants failing the test is extremely low, lower than the average population by a wide margin. And it ends up costing more money than it saves. … [Read more...]

Meet Your Texas Board of Education Candidate

headdesk550x290

The Texas State Board of Education is kind of a halfway house for the stupid and ignorant (no, those are not the same thing), so it's hardly a surprise that one of the candidates running for the board this year displays both of those things in spades. My friends at the Texas Freedom Network have a few of Mary Lou Bruner's statements: … [Read more...]
