Jim Hoft: Dumbest, and Most Dishonest, Man on the Internet

On August 19, Jim Hoft, widely considered the dumbest man on the internet, wrote a post claiming that Darren Wilson had suffered an “orbital blowout fracture of the eye socket,” complete with an x-ray that wasn’t Wilson’s at all. His story was widely picked up in the wingnutosphere. Now that actual images have been released and disproved that story, does he retract it? Nope. He went back and edited it:

Shocker: David Barton Caught Lying. Again.

Yeah, I know, David Barton being caught lying is very much a “water is wet” story, but it’s still worth documenting just how brazenly he lies and how secure he feels in doing so because he knows that his ignorant and deluded followers will neither catch him at or care if they did.

Ken Ham: Global Warming Caused by Global Flood

Ken Ham makes me laugh a lot. He has one and only one answer to absolutely any question, no matter how absurd that makes his argument.

An Undercover Operation in ‘Ex-Gay’ Therapy

Harmon Leon went undercover as a confused gay man to see what “ex-gay” therapy consisted of and what he found was predictably interesting. He was put into an odd sort of group therapy, kind of like an AA meeting. In fact, virtually everyone there had also had serious drug and alcohol and other problems.

Fischer: Banning Stop and Frisk a ‘Hate Crime Against Black Citizens’

Bryan Fischer really loves black people. Hell, he even lets them use his bathroom and everything. He loves black people so much that he thinks it’s okay to blatantly violate the Constitution to harass as many of them as possible so that a tiny percentage of them won’t hypothetically be allowed to hurt other black people later.
