Wonkette Wingnut BFF Bradlee Dean Makes Poem, Proves Gay Marriage Will Cause Holocaust

World's most beautiful poet.
Wonkette is very excited to let everyone know that Bradlee Dean, our hilarious bestie who is also a religious rights activist, has written a very important poem at the WorldNetDaily, about how gay marriage is going to cause the Holocaust. Like we need to be reminded! Now, Bradlee Dean does not like being quoted, but fuck him, here is his poem, which is his own version of the famous Martin Niemöller “First they came for the socialists” quote. Is it good? Ha ha, no, Bradlee Dean is bad at many things, and poetry is one of them: Read more on Wonkette Wingnut BFF Bradlee Dean Makes Poem, Proves Gay Marriage Will Cause Holocaust…

Deleted Comments Of The Week: The Holocaust Was A Hoax, Martial Law In Texas Is Real

NB: Remember, talking about actual Nazis does not violate Godwin's Law
Lots of lovely deleted comments for you this week, many of them in reply to our piece about David Cole, the Holocaust denier who’s found an exciting new career denying climate change (he thinks climate scientists need to be tried for treason or something). Some of the comments were about what you’d expect, like this succinct dismissal of the entire topic, from one “boris_batonov,” who simply wrote: “so you retards believe in the holohoax” — and while we’re offended by his historical illiteracy and terrible punctuation, what really chafes is a username that insults a great cartoon character.

President Obama Is Maybe Cool With You Tokin’ Up, For Your ‘Health’

Cataracts, obviously
If the President Barry H. Bamz (D-Choom Gang) thinks medical marijuana might be good for you, who are we to argue? CNN’s chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, a vocal supporter of the legalization of medical marijuana, asks Obama in the documentary [“WEED 3″]if he supports the goals of a historic Senate bill introduced in March that seeks to make several major changes in federal law, including drastically reducing the federal government’s ability to crack down on state-legal medical marijuana programs, encouraging more research into the plant and reclassifying marijuana as a less dangerous drug.

It’s Sunday Funday At The Wonkette, Let’s Reminisce About The Week That Was!

Hola, Wonkerados! How is your Easter Sunday going? Ours is very nice! Won’t you sit and have some internet brunch with us, so we can reminisce about all the lovely things that happened during the week? It wasn’t all Indiana and gays and religious freedom! (Er, actually a lot of it was, but other things also happened, according to our admittedly hazy memory.) Read more on It’s Sunday Funday At The Wonkette, Let’s Reminisce About The Week That Was!…

BREAKING: Jesse Ventura Wrong About Nazi Water Fluoridation

This is a man who knows about conspiracies
Of the many things that you may have been worried about this week, the good fact-checkers at Politifact would like to free you of one possible source of anxiety: No, the practice of water fluoridation did not begin in Nazi Germany. Please remain calm and go about your business. Read more on BREAKING: Jesse Ventura Wrong About Nazi Water Fluoridation…

French City Real Mad They’re Not Allowed To Put Nazi Triangles On The Homeless, TO HELP THEM

Maybe they just need some health care?
You would think we’ve all learned our lesson about forcing certain segments of the population to wear yellow thingies on their clothes so we can easily identify them and say “Ewwwwww, you’re one of those people.” But in the French city of Marseille, officials forgot history and were condemned to try to repeat it.

John ‘God Did The Holocaust’ Hagee Thinks Barack Obama’s An Anti-Semite

Unclear whether Obama is God's Will or just bad luck
Wingnut San Antonio pastor John Hagee, who memorably explained that the Holocaust was God’s gift to the Jews so they could return to Israel, told the Zionist Organization of America Sunday that Barack Obama is anti-Semitic because he is too friendly with Iran.

Rick Santorum: The Nazis Are Coming For The Christians Again, Just Like The Holocaust

See, America is just like Nazi Germany? See? Do you see?
You might think Christians get all the breaks in this U.S. of America, but you are SO wrong. What with activist judges cramming marriage equality down everyone’s throats, and schoolchildren denied the god-given right to learn the God made the Earth, which is the center of the universe, in a few days, then rested, then wrote the Constitution — well, it’s basically exactly like Nazi Germany, when you think about it. You remember how the Nazis killed all those persecuted Christians, don’t you? Plus a few Jews who were so dumb, they didn’t even think to move. Here, let Rick Santorum explain: Read more on Rick Santorum: The Nazis Are Coming For The Christians Again, Just Like The Holocaust…

George Will Wishes Government Would Just Leave Rapists Alone Already, Sheesh

In his natural habitat
You know who is The Worst? (For right now, anyway; as we type, some wingnut doucheweasel is trying his or her most bestest to win that coveted title.) George Will. George “Oh, I am so droll” Will. And he is really hung up on “rape” “victims” and how they get all kinds of special treatment and how the government just won’t stop sticking its big wasteful meddling government nose in the epidemic of campus rape, where the government most certainly does NOT belong.Here’s Will on Fox News Sunday, whining yet again about how government should just stay out of everything: Read more on George Will Wishes Government Would Just Leave Rapists Alone Already, Sheesh…

Duggars Did A Pretty Good Job Edumacatin’ Their Womb-Fruits, All Right

Just as Darwin Demanded
Reality Teevee show person Jessa Duggar went to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC, and came away believing that Charles Darwin led directly to the Nazis’ attempted extermination of European Jewry, which suggests that the museum’s docents really need to up their game. Ms. Duggar, 21, explained on Instagram the profound anti-science message that she derived from the historical exhibits: Read more on Duggars Did A Pretty Good Job Edumacatin’ Their Womb-Fruits, All Right…

Bryan Fischer Explains: God Can’t Stand These Awful Immigrant Children

Oh, thank goodness! American Patriarchy Association radio figurehead Bryan Fischer has weighed in on the Send the Children Away Crisis, and just wants everyone to know that Jesus would want those little would-be moochers sent home pronto, and possibly for their houses to burn down, too. You see, what the stupid immigrant-coddlers don’t understand is that God made the southern border of the United States, with a little help from James K. Polk and the Gadsden Purchase, and so anyone who doesn’t respect that border is actually pissing off the Almighty something fierce, especially if they send their children across the border illegally for some dumb reason like “being poor” or “trying to escape a failed state,” which are really not God’s problem.

Stacey Campfield ‘Regrets’ You Are Too Stupid To Understand Obamacare Is The Holocaust

Tennessee state Senator Stacey Campfield has a lovely little blog of perfect zen koans. (If you quote him, though, you have to pay him, because Tennessee state Senator Stacey Campfield does not understand how anything works.) Well, yesterday, the whole world discovered our own beloved Senator Campfield, Wonkette’s inaugural Legislative Shitmuffin of the Year, when he unleashed the almost-perfect thought of the day, “Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory sign ups for ‘train rides’ for Jews in the 40s.” People, they were so mad! They were all like, “no sir, having health insurance is not really the same as Zyklon B showers,” which is of course a Holocaust of Stacey Campfield’s First Amendment rights to never be criticized for anything he says, because it just is okay? Well, Stacey Campfield is sorry. That you are so stupid. Read more on Stacey Campfield ‘Regrets’ You Are Too Stupid To Understand Obamacare Is The Holocaust…

California School District Won’t Ask 8th-Graders To Question The Holocaust After All

Here’s a bit of a victory for reality in schools: the Rialto Unified School District has decided to make substantial changes to an assignment that would have asked eighth-graders to debate the reality of the Holocaust, as a supplement to the kids’ reading The Diary of Anne Frank. You know, we get what they were trying to do here, but… no. Just, No. It’s not that the school actually considered the Holocaust’s reality up for debate — the goal was to get kids thinking about what counts as evidence in history — but the actual assignment was sloppily written and left open the possibility that a student might well wander into a Holocaust denier website and decide, “Oh, cool, I never knew half this stuff.” Read more on California School District Won’t Ask 8th-Graders To Question The Holocaust After All…

Gun Enthusiasts Defend Freedom By Yelling At Lady Who Invented Gun-Safety Thing

Guns. Hot damn, if we all don’t want bigger, badder, better guns! Pew! Pew! Pew! America, Fuck Yeah, Second Amendment, NRA, freedoms, and all that jazz! Am I right! And if we occasionally need to feed the Tree Of Liberty with the blood of dozens of schoolchildren, then so be it, because GUNS ARE TEH BEST. We don’t care if they are big guns or small guns, so long as they are dick-shaped and can help us overcome masculine insecurities, we’ll take whatever you are offering. Can I get an ‘amen’ from the gun enthusiasts? RawStory has the amen: Belinda Padilla, president and CEO of the U.S. division of firearm manufacturer Armatix, says she was stalked and threatened by “gun enthusiasts” after she tried to bring a safer handgun to market. Oh right. We love guns, except for better, safer guns. Because even the option of a safer gun somewhere is an affront to freedom everywhere, just like that Martin Luther King Jr. guy said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” except with guns and safety being a threat to freedom. Un-ironic self-five for MLK reference!  Read more on Gun Enthusiasts Defend Freedom By Yelling At Lady Who Invented Gun-Safety Thing…

Derp Roundup: Your Weekly Dose of Dumbth

Hi, Wonkaloonies! Yr Doktor Zoom really enjoyed “sleeping in” this week! But we are back from vacation now, and ready for another Derp Roundup, our weekly Sloppy Joe of news trimmings that were too stoopid to ignore altogether but not quite enough to make a full post out of. We have to use ’em before they start to turn. Verily, this is the Arby-Q of Wonket posts. We’ll start off with the tale of Petr Pavlensky, a Russian “conceptual artist” who won’t be conceiving anything for a little while now, since he went and nailed his nutsack to the cobbles of Red Square to protest…um… well, we thought it was to protest the imprisonment of Pussy Riot, but no, for that, he sewed his mouth shut. This time he sat down in front of Lenin’s Mausoleum and pounded a large nail through his scrotum into the pavement. Pavlensky explained in a post-arrest statement that the nut-nailing “can be seen as a metaphor for the apathy, political indifference and fatalism of contemporary Russian society.” It’s nice when you’re able to combine your hobbies with your activism. Gawker notes that police used “a claw hammer” to bring the protest to an abrupt end (yes, we just felt several hundred of you wince). Efficient, but wouldn’t poetic justice have been better served with a ball peen hammer? Read more on Derp Roundup: Your Weekly Dose of Dumbth…

Why Is US America Turning Into Nazi Germany? Antonin Scalia Explains It All

It’s another day, so you know what that means. Some obscure conservative will say something stupid about how our society is turning into Nazi Germany because of teh gehys and silly womyn wanting to abort all the babies on the planet. Which no-name loon will we be mocking today? Via The Atlantic Wire: [Justice Antonin] Scalia opened his talk with a reference to the Holocaust, which happened to occur in a society that was, at the time, “the most advanced country in the world.” One of the many mistakes that Germany made in the 1930s was that judges began to interpret the law in ways that reflected “the spirit of the age.” When judges accept this sort of moral authority, as Scalia claims they’re doing now in the U.S., they get themselves and society into trouble. Wait, is Yr Wonkette really telling you that a FUCKING SUPREME COURT JUSTICE just compared our society to Nazi Germany?!?!1? Yep. Because fuck Monday.  Read more on Why Is US America Turning Into Nazi Germany? Antonin Scalia Explains It All…

Rep. Trent Franks’s Magic Ladyparts Rape Theory Is Literally — LITERALLY — Just Like Hitler

We here at Yr Wonkette are fond of mocking the ever-lovin’ shit out of Republicans who are fond of saying that such-and-such or so-and-so is just like Hitler or Nazis or the Holocaust, or some variation thereon. Like how overhearing things at Sen. Mitch McConnell’s office is just like the gestapo. (Also, Watergate, which we guess means Nixon = Hitler?) And IRSghazigate will lead to the “American Holocaust” and the “great civil war.” Both kinds! Hooray! And how if Rick Santorum can’t gay-bash at our children, it is “kind of like the Jews in Nazi Germany.” Uh, yeah. Kind of. Except not. And Obamacare is just like the Holocaust because that’s how Hitler got his start — negotiating slightly lower premiums with health insurance companies. And abortion is just like the Holocaust, because while Hitler may have started by negotiating insurance premiums, he quickly moved on to comprehensive medical care for women — AND THEIR LADYPARTS — which is obviously a short, straight shot to genocide. Arizona Rep. Trent Franks (R-OF COURSE) is one such just-like-the-Holocauster, and this week, while while arguing for his bill to ban abortion at 20 weeks, which is unconstitutional plus also a total dick move, he went full-on Todd Akin, and jumped on the magic ladyparts theory bandwagon, dumbsplaining that “the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low.” (Yes, that would be another time-honored tradition among Republicans of saying JAW-DROPPINGLY STUPID SHIT about rape. But let us not digress.) So it is with great shock, a dash of awe, and, not gonna lie, a pinch of schadenfreude (that’s a German word, and yes yes, we know who else spoke German), that we present you with this little gem, courtesy of Emily Bazelon at Slate: Read more on Rep. Trent Franks’s Magic Ladyparts Rape Theory Is Literally — LITERALLY — Just Like Hitler…

New York Teacher Creates Worst Writing Assignment Ever: Learn About Nazi Germany By Explaining Why Jews Are Evil!

From time to time, you hear about fascinating, inventive teaching techniques that make the subject matter come alive for students. For instance, astute commenter Chet Kincaid recently recalled a mass media class in college where “the professor came up with a network television role-playing game to help us understand how TV worked as a business” — the class was divided into groups representing producers and network execs and advertisers, and the producers had to pitch show ideas to the networks, who would then try to attract advertisers. Immersive and creative! Unfortunately, somebody forgot to mention to an English teacher in Albany, New York, that this sort of creative roleplaying exercise doesn’t translate especially well to some topics, like, let’s say, the Holocaust. Which is why 10th graders at Albany High School got an assignment last week to research Nazi propaganda, then assume their teacher was a Nazi government official who had to be convinced of their loyalty. The assignment told students they “must argue that Jews are evil.” Not surprisingly, about a third of the students refused to do the assignment, because for fuck’s sake, and parents complained to the school administration, who are now considering what actions to take regarding the teacher, who has not been identified. If only there had been an alert student teacher to nip that nonsense in the bud!

National Review: Only A Monster Would Say The Nazis Didn’t Make Sense

There’s a funny joke that liberals tell each other (okay, I lie, liberals are never funny because they are too busy being offended by non-lesbians) about how if Obama came out against Nazis, conservatives would find a way to defend them. Well, guess what, libtards? JOKE NO MORE. President Obama issued a statement yesterday to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day. He noted that survivors who bore witness to “the horrors of the cattle cars, ghettos, and concentration camps have witnessed humanity at its very worst and know too well the pain of losing loved ones to senseless violence.” (We noted below how some in Europe chose to mark the day, which takes place each year on January 27, the day Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz.) The idea that all violence is “senseless” violence is one that has taken deep root on the left; it’s also, unfortunately, one that poses a major impediment to understanding the world. Nazism may have been an ideology to which the United States was — and to which the president is — implacably opposed, but it is hardly “senseless.” Say what you will about National Socialism, Dude, at least it’s a fucking ethos. We mean…uh…what?  We hate to go all trite wedding toast on you, but the dictionary defines senseless as “destitute of, deficient in, or contrary to sense.”  I think that most people could agree that mass genocide, for whatever purpose, is contrary to any established norm of “sense”. Right? …Right? No. Read more on National Review: Only A Monster Would Say The Nazis Didn’t Make Sense…
