Black and White Wingnuts Bridge the Racial Divide

In this day of racial strife, it’s good to see some of the most extreme voices of the far right, black and white alike, join hands to “pray and bring attention to the struggles of our great nation and the attempts to divide the races” at a 4th of July event at Gettysburg.

Stewart Rhodes, founder of Oath Keepers, a far-right extremist who says that John McCain should be hung for treason, is joining hands with James David Manning, the even-further-right-wing extremist who thinks Starbucks flavors its coffee with gay semen and that gay people should be stoned to death to promote racial healing. Because it doesn’t matter if you’re black and white, it only matters whether you’re a deranged bigot with views just slightly this side of Adolf Hitler. Can’t we all just get along?

Both offered the same terrible argument in response. First Jindal:

WND’s Favorite Wingnuts Respond to Marriage Ruling

I’ve reached the point where, when something like the marriage ruling happens, I can’t wait to see how the Worldnetdaily “reports” on it. After Friday’s ruling legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, they rounded up their favorite end times ranters — the ones they publish books for, of course — and asked their opinions. They did not disappoint.

SC League of the South Leader: John Wilkes Booth was Tardy

The League of the South likes to pretend that it’s not a racist, pro-slaver, neo-Confederate group. No, they’re just pro-Southern heritage (never mind that the heritage they have in mind is one of slavery and oppression). The leader of their South Carolina chapter just provided yet more evidence:
