Ben Carson Wants to Ban Religious Hate Speech

Credit: Michael Vadon

Ben Carson released his plan to defeat ISIS in a Washington Post column on Wednesday and, as one might expect, it's mostly ignorant babble for someone who is utterly clueless about virtually everything. That includes the Constitution, because the weirdest part of his plan is that he wants to ban religious hate speech -- but only Muslim hate speech, I'm sure. … [Read more...]

Swanson: God Responsible for Paris Attacks


Kevin Swanson, the Christian fascist who wants gay people put to death and thinks the movie Frozen is turning kids gay, thinks the terrorist attacks in Paris were sent by God himself as a message. What's the message? By sheer coincidence, I'm sure, that message is exactly what Swanson wants it to be. It's amazing how often God's will matches the will of his followers, even when his followers disagree. … [Read more...]

Alveda King Goes Full-On Theocrat


Alveda King, the wingnut niece of Martin Luther King who continually reminds people of that to give herself credibility even though she stands for nearly everything he spent his life fighting against, works for Priests for Life, one of the groups whose lawsuit over the secondary accommodation in the ACA has been accepted for appeal by the Supreme Court. So she put out a press release basically calling for theocracy. … [Read more...]

Carson Dishonestly Retreats From Schiavo Position

Credit: Michael Vadon

As I expected, Ben Carson is trying to walk back statements he made about the Terri Schiavo case a decade ago because those comments are likely to anger the Christian right base he is trying to appeal to. And he's doing so quite dishonestly, pretending that the only thing he said was that it was "much ado about nothing" and that this was -- of course -- "taken out of context." … [Read more...]

Huckabee, Cruz, Jindal Refuse to Repudiate Swanson


Rekha Basu of the Des Moines Register has been trying to get Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal to go on the record about their presence at a "religious liberty" conference put on by Kevin Swanson, who openly advocates that gay people should be put to death (by stoning, specifically, as Leviticus demands). They seem to want to do anything but address the matter. … [Read more...]

Ladies and Gentlemen, ‘Murika

You can't find a better representation of the American right wing than this. In Virginia, a Muslim group is trying to build a new mosque and a bunch of dumbass, ignorant goobers showed up and started screaming about how all Muslims are terrorists. It got so bad that a sheriff's deputy had to break up the meeting. I'm so glad Sam Harris tells us that Islamophobia is a totally made up thing and doesn't actually exist. … [Read more...]

Texas SBOE: Experts? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Experts.


From the Department of Totally Unsurprising News: The Texas State Board of Education voted down a proposal by one of its members that would have established panels of experts from universities in the state to review the accuracy of textbooks in their specialty areas before the board votes on whether to adopt them. Because why in the world would you want knowledgeable people rather than right-wing cranks deciding what's in the textbooks? … [Read more...]

Shoebat: Victims of Paris Terrorist Attack Had it Coming


Deranged Christian fascist Theodore Shoebat says that God allowed Muslim terrorists to attack Paris because the French deserve it for "sucking up" to "secular trash." And the people who were at the concert at the Bataclan, they really had it coming because they were listening to evil heavy metal and were thus devil worshipers. "Don’t Pray For France, France Is A Godless Nation That Deserved To Be Attacked. France Supports Terrorists And Kills Christians, And Needs To Be Punished," says the h … [Read more...]

What Caused the Paris Attacks? Selfish, Childless Women


It's kind of fun watching the loony right try to figure out who is to blame for the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris. So far we've had feminists, Obama (of course), Mikey Weinstein and, my personal favorite, Duran Duran (seriously). But William Murray, the unhinged son of Madilyn Murray O'Hair (who was pretty unhinged herself), blames it all on selfish European women who won't have children. … [Read more...]

Wildmon Declares Himself ‘Skeptical’ of All Muslims


Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association had Southern Baptist megapreacher Robert Jeffress on his radio show and said that because all terrorists are Muslim -- wrong, not even close -- he now finds himself "skeptical" of all Muslims. Jeffress responded by saying that as Christians they "individually want to love Muslims," but only so they can convert them to Christianity. … [Read more...]

Perkins: Accepting Syrian Refugees Proves Obama Hates America


Tony Perkins joins the chorus of xenophobic stupidity that is spewing out of the "Christian" right like a geyser after the Paris attacks. He cheers on those governors pandering to bigoted know-nothings by trying to block any Syrian refugees from moving to their states and says that the fact that Obama wants to take in a very small number of them is proof that he hates America. … [Read more...]

Who Caused the ‘False Flag’ Paris Attacks? Duran Duran, of Course.


We've heard from those who blame feminists for the attacks in Paris, and those who think Mikey Weinstein is behind it all. We've heard from the Alex Jones crowd, which of course immediately declared it to be a false flag. But who was behind the false flag attacks? No, not the CIA or the Illuminati. It was Duran Duran. This video clip explains it all: … [Read more...]
