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…]

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.

Christmas is for Everyone, Except for Obama

Right Wing attacks President Obama for relatively modest holiday vacation.

Presidential holiday vacations are usually both uninteresting and long. Bush and Regan both routinely took 20 or more days of vacation during the holiday season, which is more than most people get, but less than others. For example, I get 30 days this year (Woohooo me). But it seems that the right and FOX can’t help themselves from turning anything, even the most mundane, into a barbed spear to hurl at Obama. But why Obama’s Christmas vacation? Because the President had the audacity, the sheer nerve, to take 17 days off in Hawaii; and the right is crying at the top of their lungs. [Read more…]

The War on CHRISTmas: The Battle of Chicago

Fox reporter issues apology for claiming Santa is not real.

As the bullshit “War on Christmas” continues, the religious right has let it be known that they are not fucking around. Not only will they continue to fight against any heathen bastard who dares to mock the creator of the universe during this season of peace, but they will devour their own for the slightest infraction against the collective.

Islamaphobia and Islamists

The devil is in the details. One last post before getting out of dodge.

I have written several articles about Islamaphobia in American, the Arab Spring, and Islam inside the Middle East. Sometimes earing the ire of the Far-Right for my views. But today I took some time to watch fellow FtB blogger Maryam Namazie give a speech in Copenhagen (The video can be found on her post entitled “Simplicity is killing us”).

She spoke about how some in the left have been hesitant to criticize Islam due to a perception that any such criticism is seen as racist, to which I have asserted that the far right’s claims of “Creeping Sharia” in America are racist. This deserves some explanation from myself. [Read more…]

Right-Wing Facebook “Themis” Looms

So you will never have to see dissenting ideas ever again.

Most of my readers will be familiar with Conservapedia, the ultra-right online encyclopedia created when Wikipedia was deemed to be overrun with reality’s “liberal bias.” Now the Koch brothers have announced their intent to set up a social networking site for like minded individuals. On the face of the issue, I don’t have any problems with yet another wingnut website being established. It will be yet another place to troll in search of my nightly blog fodder.

But this speaks to a deeper issue now becoming more prevalent on the internet; people are having almost all popular services served to them by ideologically safe alternatives. [Read more…]

Another Douchebag Florida Lawyer

First it was Jack Thompson now Larry Klaymen.

The founder of the conservative watch group, Judicial Watch, is now on the verge of getting his privilege to practice revoked in a second state. The Florida Bar has released a public reprimand to Klayman for failing to provide services that he was paid for…in advance… to the tune of $25,000.

The right wing activist is perhaps best known for repeatedly calling President Obama the “Mullah in Chief”, suing Hillary Clinton, arguing a slander case against Rachel Maddow, and suing HIS OWN MOTHER. He also sued Judicial Watch after he left that organization. It now appears he had a good reason for those frivolous lawsuits, he is broke. [Read more…]

Conservative Bloggers Get Trolled

Right Wingers Quote Satirical OWS Story.

FreedomBunker.com, AdventuresInCapitalists.com, SayAnythingBlog.com (North Dakota’s “Most Popular” blog), Rick Perry, and others recently got trolled. Hard.

Anxious for any news to belittle the Occupy Wall Street movement, conservative writers jumped on a satirical piece published one week ago by Mark Schatzker, a writer for Toronto’s Globe and Mail, thinking that the outlandish OWS “quotes” were real. [Read more…]

Fox Force Five: Where Spin Happens

The Five Spin Income Inequality.

Every night at midnight chow (or as I call it ‘lunch’), My fellow officers of my little group (The Knights of Liberalism/ Obama Brown Shirts; depending on who you ask) sit around one of the few TV’s to watch the Fox News program The Five. Our Intel guy watches it for the eye candy, the PSD guy watches it to get angry enough to go out the wire for a patrol ready to kill something, and I watch it for blog fodder. None of us are ever disappointed.

So I almost spit out my crap legs (a huge upgrade from the MRE diet in Mosul, FSM bless the Department of State) when The Five took on the recent CBO report and did their very best to spin the massive income inequality in the United States as a good thing. [Read more…]

Beck and I Agree

The 5th Sign of the End Times.

The Blaze has posted an interview that Glenn conducted with Texas Gun Shop owner Crockett Keller over Keller’s refusal to teach any non-Christians, liberals, Arabs, or Muslims in conceal and carry classes offered at his store.

Beck took Keller to task over his blanket condemnation of 1.5 billion people as all being terrorists. He then implored the Texan to judge each individual by their merits rather than being a member of a certain social group. However, his streak of humanity did not include Liberals, which remained a point of levity and common group between the speakers. [Read more…]
