Wingnut: The Gay All About Population Control

Julio Severo is a Brazilian wingnut who is now writing for BarbWire, where he makes the incredibly absurd claim that the fight for LGBT equality is really all about reducing the population. Because, silly rabbit, causal connections are for intelligent people, none of which can be found here. Referring to a USAID conference on gay rights around the world last week, he writes:

King: Immigration Action Would Trigger Descent Into the Abyss

Rep. Steve King, whose entire political career is built on sowing unjustified fear through the use of hyperbole and demagoguery, told Rick Santorum, who was guest hosting for Steve Deace, that if Obama defers deportation for some immigrants America will be “descending abruptly into an abyss that we have never seen in the history of this country.”

Beck Slams ‘Lonely’ People who Question His ‘Illness’

Last week Glenn Beck announced that he had been diagnosed with “adrenal fatigue” by a “chiropractic neurologist” who cured him of a whole range of mysterious symptoms. Many doctors have stepped forward to call bullshit on his story, saying that the symptoms he said he had are not related to adrenal fatigue and that “chiropractic neurology” is pure quackery. On Facebook, he lashed out at those sad and lonely people who doubt his story:

WND Interviews Woman Who Crashed Muslim Prayer Meeting

The Worldnutdaily is absolutely giddy that a woman interrupted a Muslim prayer session at the National Cathedral and they managed to get an interview with her to explain why she did what she did. I’m sure it will come as a shock that her reasons were completely warped and that she thinks she was specifically called by God to do what she did.

Glenn Beck Explains Why Nicki Minaj Isn’t Kosher Enough

Glenn Beck says he’s now cured of that mysterious, non-existent illness that made him sound “crazy,” but that doesn’t keep him from still making long, rambling, bizarre diatribes like this one. He explains how a Nicki Minaj video isn’t kosher and we should all keep kosher (I haven’t seen the video and have no desire to do so; I couldn’t possibly give any less of a fuck about Nicki Minaj).

Frazier Glenn Miller, the white supremacist who shot three people at a pair of Jewish centers in Overland Park, Kansas, gave an interview to the Kansas City Star explaining that his goal was to kill some Jews before he died and that, despite the fact that none of his three victims were Jewish, he was “exhilarated” by the murders and is happy that Jewish people will feel less secure now.

Walker: Medicaid Keeps People From ‘Living the American Dream’

Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is doing his level best to pander to the far-right voters who determine many of the Republican primaries in the presidential campaign he so badly wants to win by criticizing states who have expanded their Medicaid programs under Obamacare. Because getting health care apparently kills the American dream.

Oregon Republican Wants to Run Program She Wants Dismantled

I hear echoes of all Republicans who railed against the stimulus bill and said it didn’t create any jobs while applying for grants under the bill on the grounds that they would create jobs in their state in this story about an Oregon Senate candidate who ran against Obamacare and now wants to administer that state’s program to implement it.

Federal Court Upholds Contraception Accommodation

A judge from the U.S. District Court for the D.C. Circuit has upheld the new accommodation offered by the Obama administration concerning the contraception mandate for religious non-profit organizations. The court ruled that merely notifying either HHS or their insurance plan administrator that they do not wish to provide contraception coverage was not a substantial burden on the group’s religious freedom.

I Think This Might Be a Tell

A few years ago I was playing poker at Caesar’s Palace and Jose Canseco walked in. They originally told him to come to our table, then at the last second told him to go to another. I was disappointed because I really wanted to ask him about his stellar UFC career (he had one fight and got his ass kicked). Seems he’s having a little problem at the poker tables:

Christian Interrupts Muslim Prayer Service at National Cathedral

The National Cathedral in Washington, DC, which is officially Episcopalian, frequently hosts interfaith events and they decided to invite some Muslims to hold a prayer service there in the interests of ecumenicalism. Predictably, the Christian right is furious about it and one of them tried to crash it and was removed from the building.
