Maryam Namazie talk at Goldsmiths disrupted. Support given by school’s feminist and LGBT groups.

Over the last couple years the political left, with which I’ve felt aligned by entire life, has begun using tactics and adopting ideas I never would’ve thought I’d see on “my side.” I’ve seen people arguing that people should be presumed guilty of particular crimes based upon accusations rather than waiting until the evidence is in.  I’ve [Read More...]

One of the San Bernardino killers pledged allegiance to ISIS either during or right before the attack.

It’s coming to light that the San Bernardino killers were inspired by ISIS (though probably not directed by ISIS, they just saw what ISIS did/stood for and thought it looked like a good idea): The woman who helped carry out the shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., on Wednesday had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in [Read More...]

Fox legal analyst wonders if the San Benardino shooting could be a literal war on Christmas.

Are you fucking kidding me? “I don’t want to come to any hasty conclusions at this point,” Johnson continued, “but if you look at the dots, if you start to connect them in a way that’s rational and reasonable — and not political — based on simple things we know about terrorism, simple things we [Read More...]

Ok, let’s have the chat about gun control and mass killings.

So here we are, another mass shooting and today everybody is arguing about gun control (and rightly so, there’s nothing wrong with trying to sort out how to fix a very apparent problem).  The sad thing is that this discussion is largely taking place in quips that make a lot of assumptions.  I’m seeing people [Read More...]

I’ve found it: the most shameless thing on the internet today courtesy of Erick Erickson.

I can’t even. People keep blaming the NRA for mass shootings, but they weren’t so common until after Obama told people to take guns to knife fights. — Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) December 2, 2015 Jesus, how do you live with yourself trying to arm yourself with every tragedy? [Read more...]

Another mass shooting in progress, but reports that it targeted a Planned Parenthood are wrong.

Hey all.  There’s another active shooting right now in San Bernardino.  I’m seeing multiple reports that it is next to the Planned Parenthood to suggest that perhaps the two are linked. “Next to” is kind of relative.  The shooting is at the 1300 block of South Waterman Ave: SBFD units responding to reports of 20 [Read More...]

Alabama gets to pay Planned Parenthood’s legal fees after the state failed to defund them.

At least sometimes doing crappy things comes with a price tag: Not only have Alabama’s attempts to defund Planned Parenthood Southeast been blocked by the courts, Alabama taxpayers will also have to foot the bill in the more than $51,000 in legal fees for the reproductive health organization, the Montgomery Advertiser reported, under a settlement filed in [Read More...]

Thoughts on the Planned Parenthood killer.

Ok, so this last weekend a man, Robert Lewis Dear Jr., opened fire on a Planned Parenthood.  It’s become clear now that the clinic was his intended target and that he was motivated by politics: Although authorities have yet to discuss the motive for the shooting, Dear apparently did not hide his reasons for allegedly [Read More...]

Why I think the County Judge in the Baxter County nativity case lied in his press conference and before.

Hey everybody.  I’m not going to lie to you: this post is long (9,501 words, to be exact).  I usually try to keep entries as short as possible because I know people have things to do.  Trust me: I wasted no words here.  This blog, I believe, represents some of my best work and it includes [Read More...]

40% of Millennials think the government should be able to censor speech offensive to minorities.

God dammit, Millennials. The next generation gives me so much hope most of the time…then they go and do something like this. Look, nobody’s against having societal standards which make the racist deplorable (which is why calling someone a racist is a big deal and why I get so hacked off when people who aren’t [Read More...]
