Racists, misogynists, anti-intellectuals, and general assholes. We scour the septic system that is the crazy ass bastard part of the internet.

Thanks Canada… Thanks a lot

Did you know Canada has right wing ass-hats? They do! I have Canadian friends. Yes, I have friends. In real life. Okay, this sounds like me when I was 13,  “I have a girlfriend, but she goes lives a couple of towns away.” Back to the point,  my Canadian friends are members of the Conservative Party of Canada.  Which is funny, because on the whole, they are more liberal than I. So I just assumed, that if that is the “normal right” of Canada, the far-right…

Sarah Palin, you forgot your history… again

Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska, former VP Candidate, former media darling, and overall excellent person at holding the title former something, has tweeted the following: God Bless the legacy of our 16th President. He served with honesty and integrity, held our nation together in the… http://t.co/pxaPFRWHDF — Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) February 12, 2014 Now, we do admit that the 16th President of the United States was a member of the Republican Party, we can’t deny that.

“True” Christian Soldiers don’t have PTSD – David Barton & Kenneth Copeland

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a psychiatric disorder that can occur following the experience or witnessing of a life-threatening events such as military combat, natural disasters, terrorist incidents, serious accidents, or physical or sexual assault in adult or childhood1 . Given that this is a serious psychological issue, it is altogether right and fitting that a Christian pastor and a Christian “historian” weigh in on the matter.  To summarize their position, and I am paraphrasing here, you wouldn’t have PTSD if you were a…

Wing Nut Wednesday – Susan Knowles

You’ve probably never heard of Susan Knowles. You probably don’t own her vanity-press publication: Freedom’s Fight: A Call to Remember. You probably don’t follow her1 on twitter. So why bring her up? She’s, now I’m quoting a diagnostic code from the DSM-V here, “ass hat fucking crazy”. Trust me, that’s a condition. I found her by looking up the hashtag #ThingsYouWillNeverHearObamaSay on twitter.  Why, you ask? For you, the intrepid reader of this post, so you don’t have to. –Begin Rant– I found my way to her…

Hyperbole from the right: Obamacare = Slavery

From RightWingWatch, Dr. Ben Carson, speaking at the Values Voter Summit, said, “Obamacare is really  I think the worst thing that has happened since slavery. It is, it is in a way, I think, slavery.”  The audience responded with applause, hoots, and hollers. He then went on to say, “It is slavery in a way, that it makes us subservient to the government.” For those of you unfamiliar with Dr. Carson, he skyrocketed to right-wing stardom after an appearance at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast where…

Richard Spencer, the new David Duke

This morning, I was browsing AlterNet and came across an article on a new generation of white separatists. The article features an interview and short biography of a man named Richard Spencer.  He runs the, innocuously named, National Policy Institute, and is the editor of the Alternative Right blog.  From the article’s description, and some later research, he’s David Duke reborn.  A racist with a tie.  He’s taken off the sheet, hung up the cross, and laid down the gas can. But he’s still just…
