creeping sharia

From Merrie Olde Englande comes this bit of costly stupid: A documentary is set to reveal on Monday how UK police spent £500,000 ($852,000) to control an English Defense League (EDL) far-Right protest against a planned mosque, which happened to be a KFC fast-food branch. The BBC documentary, “Police Under Pressure,” documents how false rumors […]

It’s getting to where there is just no freedom at all anymore. Look at poor Jo Lynn Haussmann, a recently elected member of the school board in Keller, Texas, who was only trying to emphasize the importance of voting last week when she posted this important message on her FacePlace account: “Do you realize because […]

Out here in California we are locked in a tepid political battle being waged by various brigands, crooks and llama-blowing weirdos for the right to get crushed by incumbent Democrat Jerry Brown in this November’s gubernatorial election. Former Wonkette writer/office concubine Jim Newell recently used his lofty new perch at Salon to take a look […]

Here is the latest outrage against all that is good and holy and just in our once-proud nation: According to the Stupidest Man on the Internet, Jim Hoft, “Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins replaced “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance with “under Allah.” My god! What is our country coming to? Creeping […]

Welcome, kids, to Derp Roundup, the weekly feature where we give our browser tabs a Silkwood shower, then inspect the drains for stories that are too stoopid to ignore altogether, but not enough to hang a full blog post on. We recommend that you apply the mood-altering substance equivalent of a wire brush to your […]

Here is Fox & Friends’ Heather Nauert on the teevee yesterday, explaining how “sharia law” is taking over, because a YMCA in Minneapolis-St. Paul is going to hold a girls-only swim class one hour a week, providing Somali refugee girls the chance to learn to swim. BUT! Since men won’t be allowed in the pool […]

A blow for freedom has been struck! Students in Hendersonville, Tennessee, have been saved from the grip of sharia law, and it’s all thanks to alert parents who complained when they found out that an elective World Cultures honors course would be taking a field trip to a Hindu temple and a mosque. Outrage! Horror! […]

Lo, but the mighty Crayon has fallen in the battle against the Muslin hordes. Yes, the cornerstone drawing tools/occasional snack of your childhood are the latest casualties of creeping Shariah because of Crayola’s terrifying new Ramadan-themed coloring pages. Silver lining: we’ll probably get a lot of use out of that new “Rivers of Blood” color. […]

High on our list of people we could do without is Pamela Geller, who unlike many popular figures on the extreme right really seems to believe her own hateful, attention-seeking nonsense. Like this marvel (do not click), in which she masterfully (that’s a synonym for awkwardly, right?) links Tom Perez, the Dread Hitler Obama’s nominee […]

Nashville paranoids were well and truly trolled last week by a fake website claiming that the city’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, which had been damaged by severe flooding in 2010 and just last month escaped foreclosure, would soon be converted into a mosque. Vigilant protectors of Constitutional religious freedom all that is good and true and […]

So it turns out there is this super rad Islamic cleric in Washington, DC, who marries gay couples because, like decent people of all faiths, Imam Daayiee Abdullah just ignores the crazy medieval stuff and focuses on the let’s just love each other part of his faith. “I think we’re at the start of a movement: a […]

Anyone who thinks that school districts aren’t responsive to community concerns should talk to district and school board members of the Irving, Texas, Independent School District. When they received a clearly insane chain email claiming that a curriculum used in the schools was “INDOCTRINATING ISLAM,” they didn’t just delete it and go back to looking […]

Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Edge Of Obscurity), after a political season in which his sterling record of saying pure unadulterated crazy shit was nearly eclipsed by the likes of Todd Akin and Allen West, would just like to tell these young upstarts to sit back and watch how an professional goes Full Gohmert. And so, […]

Well doesn’t this just appear to be a promising comedy setup? Let’s just end the tension right now and tell you in advance, it is. But you knew this: It is a universal law of Reason that because Michele Bachmann does not believe in it, even seemingly mundane activities like Michele Bachmann sitting on an […]

The vicious professional Muslim-haters of the anti-religious freedom organization “Preserving Freedom Conference” were all set to make their pretty pennies holding a sweaty, paranoid circle jerk for Islamo-fear fetishists at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville, but the mean venue owners canceled their booking contract after they realized it might be bad for business to be […]
