Problem Solving is Better Than Persecution Poses

Hemant highlights a story out of a child in Missouri who was allegedly yelled at by a teacher for carrying a Bible.

Beck and Oprah Won’t Have Jim Garrow to Kick Around Anymore

Jim Garrow is highly upset that Glenn Beck is not sufficiently supporting Cliven Bundy so he took to Facebook to declare that he isn’t going to go on Beck’s show (which he’s never been on or been invited on, so far as I know). Oh, and he won’t go on Oprah’s show either.

CWA Doesn’t Want Women’s History Museum

Congress is considering funding for a National Women’s History Museum and Concerned Women for America Against Women are highly agitated because it might actually celebrate the movement that made women more equal instead of, say, anti-female women like Phyllis Schlafly.

Is There Anything the Right Can’t Politicize 2: Electric Boogaloo

In his weekly radio address over the weekend, President Obama talked about Easter and Passover, sending greetings to those who celebrate those two holidays. But he was far too ecumenical for hateful Islamophobes like Pam Geller, who accused him of “proselytizing for Islam” by even mentioning them. For the record, here is the transcript of …

Corsi Thinks He’s Found the Birther Holy Grail

Jerome Corsi is all atwitter with excitement over a British court case that he thinks might finally provide evidence for his birther delusions. Of course, the evidence is devoid of, you know, evidence. It’s a criminal case involving a man named Michael Shrimpton, who says he’s seen the proof that Obama was born in Kenya.

David Barton Lies. Film at 11.

David Barton is a liar. That’s been well-established. I don’t mean he sometimes gets things wrong, I mean he lies — constantly, flagrantly and repeatedly. His latest lie, which he’s told before, is that “the Obama administration has refused to prosecute any child pornography.”

The Bundy Ranch Story is an Old One

Tom Kenworthy at Think Progress goes into the long history of attempts by ranchers like Cliven Bundy to get out of federal grazing fees and the attendant “range war” rhetoric that often goes along with those attempts. They never actually win because the law is crystal clear.

Franklin Graham Loves Putin Too

The love affair between the anti-gay Christian right and Vladimir Putin continues. Franklin Graham, the son of Billy Graham, went on ABC News on Sunday and praised Putin’s anti-gay crusade as him doing the right thing for Russia, as though the right thing for Russia was different than the right thing for America.

‘Ex-Gay’: I’m a Threat to Satan

Janet Boynes, Michele Bachmann’s favorite “ex-gay” activist, went on the Steve Deace show and said that homosexuality is really all about a huge battle between God and Satan and that Satan is attacking her because she’s such a threat to his side of that battle.

The Unending Irony of Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck’s total lack of self-awareness is truly awe-inspiring. On his show last week he criticized a Nebraska state senate candidate for associating with Grover Norquist who is “truly one of the most dangerous men supposedly on our side.” And he cautions that people ought to know all about the people they’re standing up with …

NV Republican Deluded About the Youth Vote

The Nevada Republican Party recently decided to remove anti-choice and anti-gay language from their platform, prompting Republican state legislator Ira Hansen to go on the Janet Mefferd show and claim that the real way to appeal to younger voters is to embrace the “Pat Robertson wing” of the GOP.

Is There Anything the Right Won’t Politicize?

As you probably heard, Chelsea Clinton announced that she and her husband are expecting their first child later this year. Predictably, some on the right are trying to turn it into a political issue. Steve Malzberg, for example, says that this was timed deliberately to help Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Klayman’s Delusions of Grandeur

Larry Klayman really is endlessly amusing to me. He really does seem to believe that he’s leading a “second American revolution,” which is absolutely hilarious. The self-delusion is almost touching, especially as he pretends that his rally in Lafayette Park last November did anything other than spread a little litter around.
