Knight: Fighting Evolution = Conservative Revival

Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union (god, they do love their acronyms that sound like ACLU) thinks that a poll that shows 60% of Americans accept human evolution proves that there would be a "conservative revival" if Republicans started attacking evolution more. … [Read more...]

Garrow: Christians Facing ‘Full-Blown Persecution’

Jim Garrow, the con man who claims Obama tried to nuke South Carolina and will soon be talking to aliens, went on David Barton's radio show and struck the martyr pose. Christians are facing "full-blown persecution" and the government will soon be shutting down churches that won't perform gay marriages. … [Read more...]

Wingnuts Fantasize About Stoning Gay People

Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner of Generations Radio, both of whom are staunch theocrats of a Reconstructionist bent, are hopping mad about the Rose Parade float that featured a gay couple getting married. So they fantasize about what would happen if they had a float that showed a gay person getting stoned to death: … [Read more...]

Porter: We’re Winning, We’re Winning!

One of the amusing things over the last few months for me has been watching the bigots try to convince themselves and others that they're winning a battle they are losing so badly that they really ought to surrender. Janet Porter is the latest to declare that the tide has turned and now they're going to stop the "homosexual agenda." … [Read more...]

Islamic Reactionaries Torch Lebanese Library

Yet another example of the rampant misology among fundamentalists of every religion. Muslim reactionaries in Lebanon set fire to a library owned by a Greek Orthodox priest of more than 80,000 books. Why? Either because someone found a pamphlet that "insulted" Muhammad or because the priest said something they don't like on the internet. … [Read more...]

Is the Nye-Ham Debate a Good Idea?

As you've probably heard by now, Bill Nye has agreed to debate Ken Ham at the Creation Museum on Feb. 4. Reactions have ranged from excitement to disappointment to dread. I'm somewhere in between. So is Tom Flynn, though I think he's being a bit naive with this statement: … [Read more...]

WND: The Messiah Will Come After Sharon Dies

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been in a coma since 2006 and it looks as though they're going to pull the plug on him and let him die soon. The Worldnetdaily is promoting the views of a rabbi who says that this is all part of Biblical prophecy and that the messiah will come after he dies. … [Read more...]

OMG! Obama Likes House of Cards!

Hey look, it's time for yet another example of right wing faux-outrage, this time over Obama joking around with Netflix executives about liking the show House of Cards. ZOMG! He wishes he could blackmail and murder people too! So says Joseph Farah with his usual hyperbole: … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: King v Paul

Rand Paul is planning to file a class action suit on behalf of some 250,000 people against the NSA over its data mining operations. It's a mostly pointless gesture (there are already at least two such cases going on behalf of specific plaintiffs, with district court rulings, and a class action suit will almost certainly be dismissed), but Rep. Peter King is spewing his usual stupid and hypocritical outrage over it. … [Read more...]

Yeah, About That Crop Circle…

A couple weeks ago a new crop circle -- okay, more like a square -- suddenly appeared in a field in Salinas, California. The citizens of Bullshitville (which I'm pretty sure is in New Mexico) immediately got all excited. Aliens! Evidence of Aliens! The Worldnetdaily fell for it hook, line and sinker, even presenting an "exclusive" video from someone's cell phone of "mysterious" lights coming from the field where it was discovered. … [Read more...]

Wave Goodbye to Liz Cheney

Liz Cheney has decided to end her primary insurgence against incumbent Sen. Mike Enzo of Wyoming, but only because of unspecified "serious health issues" that have "recently arisen" in her family. It's totally not because she was polling really badly and had no chance of winning. … [Read more...]

Wingnut Knows Why Roberts Upheld ACA

In the wake of the Supreme Court upholding the key provisions of the Affordable Care Act, conservatives searched far and wide for an explanation of why Chief Justice John Roberts would vote with the liberals in the case. Bill Dunne, who says he runs an "executive-communications consultancy" in Connecticut, has finally found one: Roberts was helping the Republicans by making sure they lost the 2012 election. Wha? Yep. That's what he says. … [Read more...]
