The Wrong Route

Scientology tries to weasel its way into the minds of the disenfranchised during the year of protest.

The Route Out. On the surface, this website appears to be nothing special. The site, at first glance, is just another bland political action site attempting to raise a “grassroots” movement out of “nothing” with a heavy handed organizational structure.

The Route Out is smothered in Americana, quotes and images from founding documents abound. The wording of the site’s overarching message is so whitewashed, mundane, and apolitical that Tea Partiers and OWSers nodded along with the message, even if it is pretty simplistic. [Read more…]

Birthers: If You Can’t Make a Story, Fabricate It

WND reports on Birther banner as if they didn’t do it, then reports on people reporting WND’s reports about the banner reportedly flown by WND.

WND has pulled out all the stops while trying to keep the myth of Obama being a foreign national alive. Their latest attempt was to fly a banner (pictured below) over Arlington’s Cowboys Stadium during a football game. I think their intention was to squeeze the last drops of controversy from the zombie lie. Sadly for WND, no major media outlet paid the banner much mind.

But that won’t stop WND. The website soon penned an article about the banner and wrote it in such a way as to not give themselves credit. Only the picture itself and a quote from Joseph Farah tied the handiwork of WND to WND itself. [Read more…]

All time low for Lowe’s

Home improvement store pulls ads from Muslim reality show.

The Florida Family Association knew something was fishy about the show “All-American Muslim.” The family portrayed on the reality show was clearly living a lie, unlike the real Americans portrayed on the “Real Housewives of whatever-ville” or the standup personalities featured on “The Jersey Shore.” This Muslim family was a plant, pure and simple. An insidious plot to destroy America as we know it via a clever Leave it to Beaver approach.

The Florida Family Association was shocked by this trojan-horse portrayal of a normal American family but, thankfully the FFA soon recuperated and went on the offensive in the name of glorious freedom. They encouraged other sound minded persons across the nation to help defend America from imminent defeat at the hands of the enemy. [Read more…]

21 Year old, Abigail Borah, Speaks Out in Durban

While American Politicians are hesitant to push the climate issue both nationally and internationally,  a youth speaks out against inaction.

Thanks to recent big pushes by the energy industry, there has been over a 15 percentage point shift in America’s belief in global warming. Unfortunately, that shift has been towards the opinion that the consensus of the scientific community is nothing but an elaborate conspiracy perpetrated by “so called” expects against the larger community that can’t be bothered to do any research themselves. With pubic belief as it is, politicians have been hesitant to take on the issue directly.

That seems to be the case in Durban, South Africa, where the international community has gathered to discuss climate change. However, given the “climate” of the talks, this conference will likely not see any major moves to legally binding changes necessary to have a sizable impact.

Seeing the inevitable inaction on the horizon, 21 year old Abigail Borah, a member of the youth climate delegation spoke out to the powers that be. [Read more…]

Glen Beck Freaks Out Over South Korean Skyscraper

Because everything in the world must revolve around Beck and the United States, no exceptions.

On my morning drive to work, I put down my book on tape on my trusty Kindle and decided to tune in to the Glen Beck radio show. Amid selling GBTV and yet another stadium public performance, I could tell that the radio host was a bit more touchy than normal. He was pissed and the target was South Korea. His rage was so pure that he was demanding that the U.S. pull all of our troops out of the country immediately. Why? Because one of the S. Korea’s planned skyscrapers made him think of 9/11.

OWS Starts to Shift the Democratic Message

Former Super Committee co-chair attempts to dispel the GOP’s “Job Creator” myth.

It’s good to see that Occupy Wall Street has done what protest movements need to do, shift the discussion within our society to focus on uncomfortable truths that were previously ignored by politics and the mass media. Before OWS in the republican sphere, you couldn’t even call the rich “rich” anymore, today they are “job creators” (after extensive control group testing of the phrase). And the moniker has mostly been unchallenged by democrats, leaving the top 1% of Americas to receive remarkably tax rates lower than the middle class. Because the majority of the populous is deceived into believing that any tax increases amongst the super-wealthy will cause either an upturn in unemployment or the vengeful “job creators” to pull out of the American economy in protest this meme replicates in ernest. Never mind that history shows this to be untrue, since perception is more important than reality most of the time. [Read more…]
