Fischer Again Demands All Immigrants Convert to Christianity

Screenshot from Youtube clip

Bryan Fischer is once again showing that he is a dyed-in-the-wool Christian fascist, saying that America should welcome immigrants to this country -- but only if they agree to convert to Christianity. And stop being gay, I imagine. And not just any Christianity, of course, but to his own totalitarian, right-wing version of Christianity. None of those weak-kneed non-fundamentalist types allowed. … [Read more...]

Ben Carson’s Infatuation With a Far-Right Crackpot

Credit: Michael Vadon

Like Glenn Beck, Ben Carson seems to adore Cleon Skousen, a far-right Mormon crank who wrote some of the most bizarre, John Birch Society-style rantings about communism and America that you'll ever see. As David Corn documents at Mother Jones, Carson has cited Skousen's book The Naked Communist repeatedly in interviews, telling reporters and audiences how important Skousen's work is. … [Read more...]

Carson Has No Idea Why the Roman Empire Fell

Ben Carson may be a brilliant pediatric neurosurgeon, but as I've documented many times over, when he steps outside that specialty he has nothing to offer but meaningless platitudes and simpleminded cliches, if not outright lies. Take history, for example. He seems to be having a difficult time deciding why the Roman Empire fell so "suddenly" (which it didn't, of course). Now he says it has something to do with gay marriage. … [Read more...]

Shoebat the Lesser Still Wants Gays Exterminated, via ‘Inquisition’


Ted Shoebat, the Christian fascist son of fake "ex-terrorist" Walid Shoebat, is once again calling for the wholesale extermination of gay people, while admitting that he hates democracy and instead wants a global Christian theocracy that would launch a new "inquisition" to kill, all modeled after the Old Testament law, of course. I certainly hope someone is keeping a close eye on this guy before he goes on a killing spree. … [Read more...]

Glenn Beck is Turning Over a New Leaf. Again.


One of the endlessly amusing things about Glenn Beck's constant melodramatic cravings is that every few months he declares to his vast number of followers that he is a changed man, that he has had an epiphany that has caused him to turn over a new leaf and that he hopes they will all follow his lead in doing the same. And so I literally laughed out loud when he did it yet again this week. And now, it's all about Jesus. You know, like it was before. … [Read more...]

Chaffetz Tries Inane Emotional Blackmail Against Planned Parenthood


Okay Louis Gohmert, you're off the hot seat. The title of the most ridiculous member of the U.S. House of Representatives has officially passed to Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah. He's always been a clueless dolt like Gohmert, but even Gohmert has never tried to make an argument this asinine during a House hearing. Seriously, this may be the most idiotic thing I've ever heard a sitting member of the House say (and I watched Michele Bachmann on a daily basis for years). … [Read more...]

Oklahoma Finally to Remove Ten Commandments Monument

Church and State

After months of trying to find ways not to comply with a state supreme court ruling that it was in violation of the state constitution, the Oklahoma state government is finally going to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state capitol before an October 12 deadline set by the courts. What I don't understand is why doing this required a vote of another governmental body that was bound by the ruling. … [Read more...]

Farah Tells Trump to Dump Coulter, Refuses to Dump Coulter

There is much amusement to be found in watching Worldnetdaily owner Joseph Farah suddenly discover, to his great shock, that Ann Coulter is a bigot who will say anything to get attention and make money. He only discovered this when she said things that weren't in line with his own bigotry, of course. And now he's telling Donald Trump that he should end his relationship with Coulter, while simultaneously refusing to do the same. … [Read more...]

The Senate Republicans Pretty Much Hate Ted Cruz


From the moment he was sworn in as a senator, Ted Cruz has royally pissed off his fellow Republicans by acting like a bull in a China shop. Once he succeeded in getting the House to shut down the government in 2013, their hatred for him was galvanized. This time around, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to avoid a repeat and the Senate Republican Caucus is letting Cruz know exactly what they think of his grandstanding. … [Read more...]

Limbaugh: Water on Mars is a Liberal Conspiracy!


Rush Limbaugh, who never met an issue he couldn't turn into a vast political conspiracy, thinks NASA is lying about there being flowing water on Mars. Why? Because he thinks it somehow ties into some vast liberal conspiracy that he can't bother to spell out. But since NASA has confirmed other things, like climate change, that are used to support policies he disagrees with, it must be making up everything. … [Read more...]

Glenn Beck: Wrong Again!


Glenn Beck makes a habit out of exploding in righteous rage over things that didn't actually happen. The latest example is the situation I'm sure you heard about where a high school student saw another student bullying a blind kid and steps in to defend him, throwing the bully to the ground. Glenn Beck is outraged -- OUTRAGED! -- that this student was suspended from school, which never happened. … [Read more...]

Cahn Closes the Values Voters Summit With Inane Sermon

To close out the Values Voters Summit, the Family Research Council brought in a couple of end-times preachers to rain fire and brimstone on the hotel ballroom, including Jonathan Cahn, who most recently whiffed completely with his "prophecy" of calamity at the end of the "Shemitah year" that came and went without incident. He still thinks God is going to go medieval on our asses any minute now. … [Read more...]
