The Death of Pat Buchanan’s America

In his latest column, old-school racist paleo-conservative Pat Buchanan declares that America is “no longer 1 nation, 1 people,” as if we ever were such a thing. But what he means by this is that we have too many brown-skinned people here now and he doesn’t like it one bit.

The Life of a Woman on Youtube

My friend Gretchen linked to this Jezebel article and noted that this is one of the reasons she hasn’t started a Youtube vlog. If this doesn’t ring true for you, you’re either completely oblivious or downright delusional about the way women are treated online (and offline too).

FRC VP: Satan Behind Gay Rights

Kenyn Cureton, the Family Research Council’s Vice President of Church Ministries, tells an audience that the “demonized forces of hell” are behind the “homosexual agenda.” We hear this all the time from the anti-gay bigots of the Christian right. This is, quite literally, dehumanizing gay people and those who advocate equality.

Barton: God Will Punish Us With Routine Events

David Barton says that God is going to punish America for not slavishly praising anything the state of Israel does, no matter how destructive or wrong it might be by sending natural disasters that are bound to take place anyway. At the same time, of course, Muslim reactionaries will say that Allah is punishing America for supporting Israel. Both are totally and completely full of shit, of course.

Larry Pratt: Worse Than You Think

Larry Pratt, the leader of Gun Owners of America, is one of the most extreme voices on the right, so extreme that he thinks the NRA are a bunch of weak-kneed liberals. But a new profile of him in Rolling Stone shows that he’s even worse than I thought in a number of ways.

LaBarbera: Throw Doctors in Jail for Sex Change Surgery

In case you were laboring under the misconception that Peter LaBarbera couldn’t get any more extreme in his already deranged views on anything remotely involving sexual orientation or gender identity, he’s now demanding that doctors who perform sex reassignment surgery be thrown in jail.

Robertson Diagnoses Demons for Stomach Problems

Once again Pat Robertson answers a viewer email and predictably says something incomparably stupid. A mother wrote in about her son having stomach pains and Robertson tells her that he’s possessed by demons because some ancestor or family member was into witchcraft.

Huge Victory for Secular Celebrants

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has given us a major victory, ruling in a case brought by CFI Indiana that the state must allow secular celebrants to solemnize marriages along with clergy. The ruling was by a three-judge panel that included two legendary conservative/libertarian legal scholars, Judge Frank Easterbrook and Judge Richard Posner.

Are the Least Serious Christians the Most Defensive?

The idea I’m about to express was brought on by a conversation with a couple of friends in a hangout the other day. Let me state this premise: Most people who call themselves Christians do so not because they’ve given it serious thought and have concluded those beliefs to be true but because it’s an identify marker — “I belong to the tribe of Christians,” by which they mean the Tribe of Good People.

WH Spokesman Lies About Transparencies

New White House spokesman Josh Earnest knows his job well. He’s paid to be a professional liar and lying is exactly what he does. And that’s exactly what he did when he was asked about Obama’s promise to be the “most transparent administration in history.”

Bradlee Dean’s Self-Aggrandizing Video

To intelligent people, Bradlee Dean is a ridiculous buffoon. To his followers, and apparently to himself, he’s a hero saving America from everything bad. You have to see this video he put out on Youtube. It may be the most narcissistic thing you’ve ever seen. And hilariously, he announced it on Facebook with this quote:

Violent Symbolism From a Democrat

We’re all used to hearing violent rhetoric from Republican candidates, but how about some from a Democrat? Estakio Beltran is running for the Democratic nomination for House seat in Washington and he released an ad showing him shooting an elephant-shaped pinata with a shotgun.

Jumping on the Impeachment Gravy Train

Now that Sarah Palin has come out and said Obama should be impeached (as opposed to him just quitting his job like she did), the right wing is jumping on the impeachment gravy train, telling their followers that if they just send them money, they’ll make sure he gets impeached.
