Ladies Flying Planes And Other Tales Of Terror

The Wonkette Overnight Desk has been hard at work aggregating content for your pleasure.
Yesterday on Fox’s The Five, Kimberly Guilfoyle gave a shout-out to Major Mariam Al Mansouri, the first female fighter pilot in the United Arab Emirates. Mansouri led her country’s contingent of military pilots that participated in bombing ISIS in Syria earlier this week. Yr Wonkette is not going to cheer on anyone for dropping yet more bombs on more brown people, even if they are fanatical nutbars. Still, we suppose in the context of Middle Eastern countries, where women are sometimes not allowed to so much as drive or even leave the house unless accompanied by a male, this represents a twisted step in the direction of equality. So sure, Kimberly Guilfoyle, go ahead and girl-power away, and let’s hope that none of your troglodytic male co-hosts step on the moment by saying something sexist.

Ralph Reed: Why Won’t Obama Stop Murdering The Christians?

You really have to hand it to Ralph Reed. The man has got some staying power. For like 1,000 years now, he has been the most reliably self-righteous Christian concern troll ever. For wherever two or three are gathered in Jesus’s name, there will be Ralph Reed whinging about how he and his ilk are the most persecuted people to ever walk God’s green earth.

Hey Native Americans, Let Ted Nugent Tell You How To Be Native American Like Him

looks like a tribute to the historic Native American tradition of blowing up breast cancer with grenades
Hey, Dances With Nuge, what is up? Oh, you are more Indian than all the Indians who have canceled your concerts at their awesome casinos, and you would like to tell Glenn Beck about it, and Glenn Beck is the sane one in this exchange? Sounds fun, let’s roll tape! Read more on Hey Native Americans, Let Ted Nugent Tell You How To Be Native American Like Him…

Republicans So Anguished About Border Children, They Will Not Stop Until They Do Nothing About It

Have you heard there is a Katrina at the border, and that Katrina is a hurricane of little brown children, mostly unaccompanied by any adults, who have traveled thousands of miles to escape the violence in their Central American homes? Some people have been kind of spitty about it, with the screaming at the buses full of brown babies, phlegm flying. Other people, meanwhile, have taken a more tempered approach, perhaps realizing that screaming at babies like a crack mom is not a Good Electoral Look. Those more temperate folks have emphasized that we have a humanitarian crisis at our border, and that is true! Luckily, they will not rest until they keep one “President” Barack Obama from doing anything about it.

Totally Rational Behavior: Glenn Beck Shoots Things So He Feels Better About Chris McDaniel’s Loss

We knew there would be some maximum sadmad from the super-right about Chris McDaniel’s loss in the Mississippi Senate primary to Thad Cochran on Tuesday, a loss only made possible by meddling black people, and we really should have held a contest to see who would be the derpiest. Haha of course we didn’t need to do that because it is Glenn Beck today, Glenn Beck tomorrow, Glenn Beck forever.

Glenn Beck Discovers Nefarious Government Plot To Return Unclaimed Property To Rightful Owners

It’s a day ending in -y, so you better bet Glenn Beck is out there whipping people into a frenzy over completely made-up shit. Seriously, what is it like to be that paranoid all the time? It must be weird to live with the constant certainty that every mundane occurrence is actually the government generally or Barack Obama personally coming for you and your stuff. Today’s scaremongering came with this SHOCKING HEADLINE: “This happened: Government confiscates money from a member of Glenn’s staff.” Yes, that totally makes it sound as if rando dude that works with Glenn Beck, Joe Kerry, had some jackbooted thugs come take his money away so they could give it right to Sasha and Malia, but you don’t need us to tell you that’s some straight up nonsense.

Glenn Beck’s Cool New Artsy Friend ‘Sabo’ Can Say The N-Word Any Time He Wants

Remember a few months ago when Andrew Breitbart’s website for angry neckbeards launched Breitbart California? And they kicked off the launch with some cool edgy posters of Nancy Pelosi’s face on Miley Cyrus’s body? And then there were the Abortion Barbie Wendy Davis posters, which totally made us want an Abortion Barbie? The artistic genius behind those posters is a perpetual darling of the right, an anonymous street artist named Sabo, a dude who is basically a dime-store Banksy, if Bansky was a super racist homophobe. Glenn Beck had this toolshed on his pretend internet teevee show on Monday, mainly so that Beck and Sabo could sit around, chill, kick it, and ask the hard questions, like “why can’t we just say n*gger all the time like we want to?” Deep, man, deep.

Here’s Your Video With Glenn Beck Going On And On About Dildos

So here’s two minutes of Glenn Beck talking about the terrible horrible no good very bad thing that happened at a high school in Bellingham, Washington, Glenn’s home town. Basically, a teacher let her drama club students plan their own end-of-year awards ceremony. And high school students being high school students — actually, worse: high school drama club members being high school drama club members, it got raunchy. Rude jokes, rude awards, and casual awfulness. You know. High school stuff. Except that the teacher, Teri Grimes, “a veteran of three decades who is slated to retire after this year,” apparently didn’t step in and censor the kids’ presentation, because she Just Hates America. And also, maybe after nearly thirty years, she thought there was some merit in letting kids design and run their own awards show. Like they do in Communist Roosha.

Glenn Beck Doubles Down On Rape Sketch, Because He Is A Terrible Monster In A Human Skin Suit

Hey there, Glenn Beck! Thanks for being a regular feature on Wonkette this week, you beady-eyed cocksucker. You’ve really brought the crazy and the stupid and the crazy-stupid these last few days, for which we commend you. Your latest, this terrible sketch in which one of your minions mocked studies that indicate a widespread sexual assault problem against women on our nation’s college campuses, was already such a masterpiece, there was really no need for you to double down on it. But that’s what’s so great about you, Glenn. You are a dandelion seed on the wind, carried hither and yon, heedless of where you are at any given moment or where you may be going.

The Glenn Beck Program Has Hilarious Video That Really Puts The Funny In Sexual Assault

Some days we watch videos like this one and think maybe the wingnuts are right when they claim that evolution is a lie. Because the people who put this thing together cannot possibly qualify as evolved, intelligent life forms. Seriously, the collective EEG readings for all the alleged humans who appear in this ode to idiocy must be flatter than a week-old glass of Tab.

Glenn Beck Wins The Crazy Lotto With Innovative ‘Teddy Roosevelt Did Isla Vista’ Theory

We think we may have a winner in the “Stupidest shit anyone could say about Isla Vista” contest, from perennial entrant Glenn Beck, who proclaimed today on his radio show that parts of Elliot Rodger’s anti-woman manifesto were “almost an exact quote from Teddy Roosevelt.” We’d like to thank the other contestants for trying, and to remind them that idiocy of Beck’s caliber is a natural talent — they shouldn’t feel bad that their efforts fell short.

Bigot Twins: Satan Overturned The Guilty Verdict In The Scopes Monkey Trial (And Canceled Our Show)

We really can’t get enough of those bigot twins, Jason and David Benham, whom HGTV unceremoniously kicked to the curb when they found out they were up-to-their-eyeballs-level full of bigot. After that, their bank tried to break up with them, but howler monkeys on the internet made the bank reverse its decision. We’re hoping the bank comes to regret that decision, given that the Benhams seem utterly incapable of shutting their pieholes and have left a rich trail of stupid all over the internet. Today’s find: evolution equals Satan, or brought Satan with it, or something. Read more on Bigot Twins: Satan Overturned The Guilty Verdict In The Scopes Monkey Trial (And Canceled Our Show)…

Eric Holder Forces Dinesh D’Souza To Plead Guilty To Crime Of Loving Free Speech Too Much

Remember back in January how unstoppable tyrant Barack Obama and his evil minion Eric Holder threw filmmaker and pretend smart person Dinesh D’Souza in a gulag for the terrible crime of not loving Obama and for believing in free speech and being an all-around hero? And Dinesh was all like “trumped up charges blah blah blah did I mention I made a film I will fight this to the death”? Looks like some of Obama’s goons got to noble Dinesh, because today he pleaded guilty to one of the charges — a criminal count of making illegal contributions in the names of others. It looks like the plea allows him to skate on the other charge of making false statements. Read more on Eric Holder Forces Dinesh D’Souza To Plead Guilty To Crime Of Loving Free Speech Too Much…

Glenn Beck Pretty Sure That Joe Biden And Nancy Pelosi Will Holocaust Him Into Getting Tattoos

We’re perpetually amazed that Glenn Beck has a national platform — and a lot of money — to say things that would sound weird and paranoid even if they came from one of those guys that walks around wearing a “The World is Ending” sandwich board. What was Glenn going on about yesterday? Oh, nothing really, except how he won’t watch the hilariously awesome WHCD video that Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi were in, but he is pretty sure it is leading us all to concentration camps.

Glenn Beck ‘Worries’ Hillary Will Have Hott Lesbosexx All Over Oval Office Desk

Hero of Americanism and decency Glenn Beck took a few minutes to yell at politicians whose views on same-sex marriage have evolved, because changing your mind is weak and hypocritical, and nowhere near as principled as always holding the same views forever: “You’re saying this is the civil rights issue of our day, and you were such a coward you couldn’t do it until Hollywood changed everybody’s mind,” Beck said. “These people are disgusting.” Presumably, Mr. Beck also yells “hypocrite!” over the closing credits of A Christmas Carol every year, too. We bet he’d have been fun to have around in the late ’60s following Loving v. Virginia. And yet the spectacle of Captain Moodswing excoriating other people for inconsistency was only the start of the weird.

Glenn Beck Tired Of Wasting Life, Wants To Make Movies Or Be A Cowboy Astronaut Fireman

Looks like Glenn Beck is having another of his mood swings, and has decided that everything is terrible, he’s tired of politics, and he just wants out. We feel ya, Glenn (not literally, oh no, heavens no). It can get to be a drag, especially when approached with the manic, barking terrier intensity of a Glenn Beck. But we get why he’s sick of it. It broke Ken Layne, after all. Maybe Glenn just needs to go out to the desert and commune with the tortoises for a while. He would probably get a lot out of that, FOR REAL. But instead of politics, he thinks maybe he’ll follow the example of Rick Santorum and make movies, because there’s a low-stress job. Or maybe he’ll just head up an apocalyptic death cult. No reason he can’t do both, like his role model, Frank Capra. Read more on Glenn Beck Tired Of Wasting Life, Wants To Make Movies Or Be A Cowboy Astronaut Fireman…

Glenn Beck Pretty Sure He Is Just Like Martin Luther King About This Whole Bundy Ranch Kerfuffle

We are discomfited when we find ourselves on the same side as Glenn Beck. Is it because we fear he’s standing next to us just to stab us in the kidneys? Yes! Is it because we fear he is off the rails and therefore if we are agreeing we might have jumped the track as well? Yes! But we find we are in agreement with the Crying One over the whole Waco Wannabe Shootout at the OK Corral thing happening in Nevada as militia and Tea Party types stand their ground on behalf of Cliven Bundy’s cattle, because Glenn Beck does not think that going full armed insurrection in Nevada is a dandy idea.

Glenn Beck Will Probably Cry Over The Fact That He Has Been Sued For Defamation Just For Calling Guy A Murderer

Do you remember last year when Glenn Beck was very very sure that the Boston Marathon bombing was a Muslim conspiracy and was pretty sure Michelle Obama went and cozied up to the kid Beck thought was the bomber, a Saudi national 20-year-old student named Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi? Except then the whole thing fell apart thanks to Beck being dumb and not really understanding how immigration designations worked at all, but by this time the poor Saudi kid had been slimed from here to Kingdom Come? Yeah, about that. Beck’s in a wee bit of hot water and by “hot water” we mean “awesome defamation lawsuit” over the whole thing now.

Exene Cervenka Is Probably A 9/11 And Sandy Hook Truther Now And We Are Sad

Man, we love Exene Cervenka and X from way back. Like WAY back to “Johnny Hit And Run Paulene” back, so we are deeply sad and weirded out by the fact that Exene seems to have gone full-on conspiracy theorist on us when we weren’t looking.

Let Jim Garrow and Glenn Beck Crazysplain That Missing Malaysian Jet To You

While the rest of the world wails and rends garments over Joe Scarborough’s announcement that he will not grace us with his presence in the clusterfuck that is sure to be the 2016 presidential campaign, your Wonkette is hard at work bringing you the more important story of our day, which is that OBAMA DID MALAYSIA AIR #370!!!!DRUDGESIRENS!!!111!!!! Or something. Of course it’s just a theory but as always it is irresponsible not to speculate, especially if you are wild-eyed nutsack Jim Garrow. Wonkette’s current favorite conspiracy theorist has recovered from Obama’s recent attempt on his life and will not give up speaking truth to power about the Kenyan Usurper and his dastardly plans to…well, we’re not sure. Here, have some crazy: The plane has 20 technology nerds aboard who happen to work for China designing “classified” leading edge computer/internet control software and are carrying the matching hardware with them on the plane. They are heading to Beijing with all the others… While we are down the rabbit hole this far, lets [sic] go all the way. Oh sweet Jesus yes, let’s.

Ronan Farrow, Glenn Beck Both Support Bullied 9-Year-Old Brony; Can Middle East Peace Be Far Behind?

Liberal lovegod Ronan Farrow and weird political freakshow Glenn Beck don’t agree on much of anything, but here’s a Kumbayah, We Are The World moment for you: both say bullying a 9-year-old boy who likes My Little Pony is bad, and if boys want to like a cartoon “for girls,” that’s actually just fine, thanks.

Glenn Beck, Private Dick

Idiot Savant Auteur de Merde Glenn Beck presents this short Noir masterpiece about a guy named Lucky, a legless (or one-legged, because why would you check your script for consistency?) prostitute named Charlie, and a slick grifter named Sam, who’s pushing a crazy unworkable scheme called “MyRA.” In typical Beck Drama Theater of the Airhead style, it isn’t especially clear on what exactly is going on in this allegory — sure, “Lucky” is the hapless everyman, “Sam” is the scary fiberglass-headed rapist fraudster you remember from college days, and “MyRA” is a scheme to steal all your muneez. We can’t for the life of us figure out who “Charlie” is supposed to be, though. After MyRA cheats him out of his savings, Lucky goes back to Charlie, so maybe the legless prostitute is supposed to be the private banking industry. Or maybe “Charlie” is the hole in a teabagger’s mattress where he saves all his gold? Your guess is as good as ours. Read more on Glenn Beck, Private Dick…
