Saleem: Muslims ‘Repopulating’ America

Fake “ex-terrorist” Kamal Saleem, one of the many fake “ex-terrorists” making a good living on the right wing rubber chicken circuit, went on the John Ankerberg show recently and delivered an amusing diatribe about how Muslims are “repopulating the nation” to bring America under Sharia law. And they’re well on their way; they’re up to almost one percent now.

McCain Slams Anti-Obamacare Populist Claims

The constant refrain from the most extreme Republicans in Congress who are willing to shut down the government in order to defund Obamacare, something they simply don’t have the votes to do, is that they are standing up for the will of the people.

Then why do lesbians have the lowest incidence of most STDs, lower than straight people? Oh yeah, it’s all about the anal sex. He thinks more about anal sex than any gay man I’ve ever known. It’s almost as if fundamentalism was invented to spread stupidity and bigotry.

Ted Cruz’ Fake Populism

I’ve never had much use for populism, which tends always to be fueled by demagoguery, but there are few things more absurd than unpopular populism. As Ezra Klein points out, Ted Cruz’ absurd claim that he’s doing what he’s doing because he’s standing up for the “will of the people” is about as disconnected from reality as it is possible to be. 59% of the public opposes shutting down the government to defund Obamacare. Only 19% favors it. And:
