Worldnutdaily Hearts Robert Bork

The conservative white washing of Robert Bork’s history of repulsive positions has only picked up speed in the wake of his death. And I’ve noticed a pattern where every single right wing tribute to him claims that he was unfairly and personally attacked without ever bothering to even mention, much less refute, any of the …

The Real Reason for Newtown Shootings

“Is this the real reason behind Sandy Hook,” asks the Worldnutdaily. Oh boy, what’s it gonna be this time? A UN plot to take our guns away? A secret Illuminati conspiracy? Nope, much simpler than all that. But it begins with this rather silly statement:

Bishop: Gay Marriage Like Communism, Fascism

You would think that, of all organizations, the Roman Catholic Church would be a bit more careful before throwing out comparisons to Adolf Hitler. An organization with any sense of shame would. But a high-ranking church official has once again compared marriage equality to the Nazis. This time it’s Mark Davies, the Bishop of Shrewsberry, …

It Appears I’ve Started An ‘Atheist Cult’

Though FTB has been the center of much of the controversy over feminism and atheism that has taken place over the last year and a half, I have generally chosen to be Switzerland. I find the stridently anti-FTB crowd to generally range from the ridiculous to the odious, but for the most part I’ve stayed …

Prayer in Schools Key to Stopping Violence

The Worldnutdaily is pushing for a major ramping up of the culture wars in an attempt to re-Christianize American culture to avoid violence (never mind that religious belief correlates with higher rates of violence, not less). David Lane of the American Renewal Project starts his crusade with a big ol’ lie:

The Ted Nugent Countdown Clock

I wish I’d thought of this. A few months ago Ted Nugent declared that if Obama was reelected, by that time a year later, he’d be either dead or in jail. I’m not sure he gets enough credit for his get out the vote effort on behalf of the Obama campaign. And whoever came up …

For Mitt So Loved His Begotten Country…

The post-mortem of a failed presidential campaign is always good fun. Immediately after the election, and sometimes before then if it’s clear where things are headed, those in the campaign start shuffling for position outside of the blame spotlight, pushing each other under a series of buses. But the Boston Globe’s analysis of the campaign …

Dean Chambers Defends Bork. Kind Of.

Dean Chambers, poll unskewer extraordinaire, has a trite and empty piece out on the death of Robert Bork and the battle over his Supreme Court nomination in 1987. It purports to be an analysis of the situation, but it lacks any actual content to it.

Gay Friends? That’s Like Cannibal Friends

Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner of Generations Radio are a bit upset at Rick Warren. Warren, you see, told an interviewer that he’s not homophobic because he has lots of gay friends (I bet he even lets them use his bathroom). And that has Swanson and Buehner spouting all kinds of obnoxious comparisons:

God Behind Right to Work Laws

Republicans in control of the Michigan legislature rammed through a right-to-work law during their last-minute lame-duck session, as I’m sure you’ve heard by now. Turns out God was behind the whole thing, according to the state senator who pushed the bill through. Here he is talking to none other than David Barton:

Newtown Shootings: Could It Be…Satan?

Over time, Dana Carvey’s famous Church Lady character on Saturday Night Live looks less like a parody and more like a direct impression. You knew it would only take a few minutes before some wingnut blames the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut on Satan himself. Dan Delzell, come on down.

DeMint Replacement a Poor, Persecuted Minority

Tim Scott, the man likely to replace Jim DeMint in the U.S. Senate, is a minority. He’s a black conservative, which certainly makes him part of a very tiny group. But he’s persecuted, you see, because he’s a Christian — the most persecuted minority group in American today!

Critchlow: Obama, Democrats Worse Than Marxists

There’s a part of me that feels bad for the wingnuts, having to continually one-up their own inflated rhetoric to keep the folks in the pews scared enough to open their wallets. When you’ve claimed that health care reform is the second coming of Adolf Hitler, there’s not a lot of room after that. And …

Klingenschmitt: Military Encouraging Abuse of Christian Soldiers

Here’s another report from the bizarro world inhabited by the wingnuts, especially the truly deranged ones like Gordon Klingenschmitt. In the real world, Christian soldiers, and even a particular type of Christian soldiers, get a leg up from their similar-thinking superiors and lots of advantages. On Planet Wingnuttia, Klingenschmitt claims that the military is deliberately …

Dean: Sandy Hook Another Government Plot

You gotta hand it to Bradlee Dean. The evil government keeps coming up with these dastardly plots to take our guns away, but they can’t sneak anything past this super sleuth. It’s not a coincidence, you see, that the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut took place just days before the UN was going to do just …
