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...]

Alabama ‘Gets Serious’ With Same Bad Arguments Against Same-Sex Marriage


The Worldnetdaily wants you to know that Alabama is "getting serious" in their "fight against gay marriage." And by "getting serious" they mean that a group of anti-gay bigots filed a brief asking the Alabama Supreme Court to declare the SCOTUS ruling in Obergefell to be non-binding and irrelevant. But that brief is just a rehash of all the old, tired arguments we've been hearing for years. … [Read more...]

Fischer Prays to Stop Obama from Listening to Satan


Bryan Fischer thinks that Satan is whispering naughty thoughts to President Obama, giving him an agenda. Unlike Gordon Klingenschmitt, he doesn't think Obama is possessed by demons, but he's quite concerned about the president being unduly influenced by the Evil One. So what does he do about it? Well, he prays of course. Because praying has worked so well so far. … [Read more...]

The Schiavo Backlash Against Carson Begins

Credit: Michael Vadon https://goo.gl/cS3vxP

As predicted, some Christian right leaders are rather upset to find out that Ben Carson criticized Republicans who intervened in the Terri Schiavo case, saying that they should have stayed out of it and not turned it into "much ado about nothing." They're even sending out press releases condemning him for it. The Christian Defense Coalition, for instance: … [Read more...]

Rick Wiles Can’t Do Math

Screenshot from Youtube clip

Deranged wingnut Rick Wiles says that "Jihad Barry" (his nickname for Obama) is leading an "Islamic invasion of America." And he actually cites Avi Lipkin, the even more deranged fabulist who claims that Obama has been moving "50-100 million Muslims" into the country and hiding them in our national parks. And his proof for this is the 10,000 Syrian refugees being let in by the end of 2016. … [Read more...]

Starnes Spreads the Usual Hysteria


What is absolutely clear about the right wing at this point is that they know the only way they can win is with demagoguery. Their only strategy on virtually everything is hyperbole and hysteria and they are really cranking it up in the wake of the Paris attacks. Todd Starnes, Fox News' resident hysteric, shows how it's done with his claim that Obama would rather see an American city nuked than profile a single terrorist. … [Read more...]

Scalia: Government Officials Can Ignore SCOTUS If They Want


Justice Antonin Scalia spoke at Princeton with Prof. Robert George, a virulently anti-gay but nonetheless brilliant law professor from that school. There is no recording of the event, but George described in great detail some of the things Scalia said on his Facebook page. And at one point, according to him, Scalia said that government officials are free to ignore the Supreme Court if they don't like their ruling: … [Read more...]
