The single best video ever made about foxhole atheists (possibly NSFW)

This is that rare combination of well-informed reporting and genuinely funny brash sarcasm. Raleigh-based A-News is the DIY equivalent to the Daily Show / Colbert Report for atheists.

I have no idea why this show isn’t already massively popular.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhKKLhGijuQ

This entire episode is dedicated to the recently reinvigorated struggle for acceptance by foxhole atheists. Is it too early to say the New Foxhole Atheists’? I’m proud to be one of the major players on the scene here. But I know for a fact that there are thousands just like me across all branches, both enlisted and officer. We are actually starting to change things!

Current champions of fake news need to make room

Many other outlets attempt the “sarcasm + news” formula with varying degrees of success. I’d say that The Onion generally fails, especially on film. Reddit’s r/atheism community is much funnier than The Onion. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are deservedly well-liked and well-funded. The Young Turks are the only thing that comes close along these lines, and often they are just doing straight news.

A challenger appears!

A-News is hilarious! You simply must start watching their show. Also, you should like them on Facebook

In a sea of atheist pod casts and radio shows, this one really stands out as top-notch. I’d rather watch this than many of my favorite proper television shows.

For those of you at work, be warned that the language is completely uncensored. You get more than a ’2 shits and a fuck’ PG-13. They speak fluent Sailor. If this distracts you or bothers you, I understand. But this is how we all talk in the military. All of us, seriously. Besides, I don’t trust people who make it a point not to swear.

And they want to get me drunk when I get back from this deployment! See? They really are classy! A sincere thank you goes out to A-News for documenting the extremely loud crash of the closet door slamming behind us.

    Thanks for turning me on to this group. Never heard of them before. Now let’s see if they can get syndicated.

    • Justin Griffith

      Agreed! These guys are much funnier than the sea of crappy youtube amateurs and podcasters who try and fail so hard to do this.

  • deedee

    Yeah, these guy are not popular already because they skip so many adjectives and insert f-bombs instead. What a wasted opportunity for them to take a leadership role. They have a little bit of talent at video editing, but need to go from grade school type “you’re dumb” and use their platform to actually be funny, if that’s what they’re trying to be.

      See above about how military conversations flow. I understand what you’re saying, I get what you mean, but I live in a world where it sounds strange to not hear the f-word so much. I imagine that a large majority of college and high school age audiences also share this experience (to a lesser extent). I think your comment is valid, and it speaks to your tastes. But that’s all this boils down too:

      Deedee “I prefer less swear words.” <— fair enough.

      By the way, it was so hard to resist :
      <—– I don't give a shit (when really I kind of do, and I'm sure everyone appreciates criticism like that.)

    Unfortunately, the Onion is not nearly as funny as the reactions of those who don’t understand that it’s satire. Which is probably the point, anyway.

    • Justin Griffith

      This is true. But did you see The Onion movie? It’s really horrible…

  • Lynn Wilhelm

    Nice interview, Justin.

    Thanks for turning me on to this show, right here in NC!

    It’s always good to hear about more like-minded locals.

    Swearing doesn’t bother me, but the sexism does. I only watched this episode and thought you gave a great interview, but I probably won’t watch another ep. (at least not any time soon), as all three men think that calling themselves/others “pussies” is acceptable. I was also completely turned off by Cody Jones’ entire segment as being rather repulsive.

    • http://apartmentj.com Lee Moore

      I am afraid I dont understand how calling myself or someone else a pussy labels me as a sexist. The word simply means coward in the context we used. I suppose the problem I have with your comment is that I have always been an advocate of equality between the sexes. If you dont like our show our our use of language thats fine, we know its not for everyone. I would just appreciate it if you didnt label us as something we are not.

        I remember when Jon Stewart was reporting about the controversial Veterans For Truth anti-John Kerry campaign ad.

        He said “Well yesterday, John Kerry had 3 purple hearts, Vietnam Veteran. Swift Boat, combat, etc… But today? He’s a pussy.”

        Everyone knew he meant ‘coward’ (like scaredy cat). They didn’t even bleep him (yeah, I know – basic cable). Nobody thinks he’s sexist for it. I love how your show has prominent female segments that DO NOT objectify them. They are very funny women, and I’m so glad to see that you guys feature intelligent women as your equals. You are on the correct post-elevator-gate side of the issue (with respect for women, and aware of the boy’s club problem and male privilege).

        Whoever thinks you are sexist for being a pussy is being a dick.
