A coalition of groups that advocate freedom of the press are filing a lawsuit against Donald Trump over his frequent comments threatening media outlets with retaliation for reporting negative stories about him. I think this suit has a vanishingly small possibility of success. (more…) Read more

Right Wing Watch has a long and detailed rundown of the rampant violence by the Proud Boys in only the short time they’ve been around. This is hardly a surprise, since their founder, repulsive misogynist Gavin McInnes, has often advocated violence against those he deems his opponents or enemies. (more…) Read more

Today is my birthday. If you’d like to get me a gift, there’s nothing better you can do than to donate to my Secular Quemanism project. Whether large or small, that would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much. Read more

In the wake of this weekend’s violent, bigoted assaults by the “Proud Boys” (who actually think they have something to be proud of), the group’s founder, Gavin McInnes, defended it and blamed it all on Antifa, while Sean Hannity joined him in blaming it all on Democrats and liberals. Apparently we forced them to beat the hell out of a guy while calling him “faggot.” We’ll start with Hannity: (more…) Read more

Still going through the transcript of Trump’s interview with 60 Minutes and noting all the various types of deflection and dishonesty he used. This post will look at the questions about North Korea. And note how he tries to argue that his actions there were necessary because, without them, we would have gone to war. (more…) Read more

Going through the transcript of Trump’s interview with Lesley Stahl on 60 Minutes is, as my podcast co-host Dan Ray likes to say, a “case study in practiced deception.” The dodges, the deflections, the dishonesty, the verbal tics — they’re all there. Let’s go through some of them, starting with her question about climate change and hurricanes. (more…) Read more

The utterly loathsome Piers Morgan shared a picture on his Twitter feed of Bond actor Daniel Craig carrying his infant child in a papoose and tagged it “#EmasculatedBond.” Predictably, he got absolutely destroyed for it by hundreds of people in response. Here’s the original tweet: (more…) Read more

One of the more amusing and ridiculous portions of Trump’s interview with 60 minutes was when he was asked about chaos in the White House with so many people leaving and being fired all the time. He said it’s all just “fake news” and that he has a bunch of “phenomenal people” ready to come in to the administration. He was asked specifically about James Mattis: (more…) Read more

On this episode of Culture Wars Radio, we talk about some new information on Brett Kavanaugh, about Trump’s most recent lies and about the appalling murder of Jamal Khashoggi by the Saudi government (and Trump’s disingenuous, toothless reaction to it). It’s available on Patreon for our subscribers now and will be available to the public in three days. Read more
