Victoria Jackson is ready to be elected as the next member of the County Commission of Williamson County, Tennessee, and she proves it in an interview with the Nashville Tennessean. She just wants to save America, or at least her corner of it, from everything that’s going wrong, and like lots of wingnuts, she thinks […]

  It seems like only yesterday that we could hardly believe some of the awful things people were doing to Muslims in the United States 2,000+ years after JC met his bio dad. But lately the big news has been “Gays win” and “Pot smokers win” and “Blacks still get murdered a lot” and “Mass […]

Epic bible-banger Titanic crossover thrill ride Noah hasn’t come out yet, but it’s already had a hard road. First the Christians grumbled about how they hadn’t seen it but knew it would get two thumbs down from Jesus. Now here come some Islamists to top that and issue a fatwa against the movie. The fatwa […]

Way to go, America! Looks like we got through one more year without becoming a Handmaid’s Tale theocracy, being taken over by sharia law, or rounding up all the Christians and putting them in FEMA camps, so all in all, we’d have to say the state of Church and State is as contentious as ever. […]

Hi-diddly-ho, Wonkerinos, and welcome to another installment of Derp Roundup, the feature where we scrape up a bunch of stories that were too stoopid to ignore altogether, but not quite worth a full post of their own. It’s like Thanksgiving leftovers that have sat out too long, except they were kind of rotten to begin […]

Marvel, the comics company that has built its franchise on superheroes with human problems — like Peter Parker’s lonesome quest to find something good on TV — will build a new comic book around a 16-year-old Pakistani-American girl named Kamala Khan, who has to balance superheroics with being a high school student and a first-generation […]

At a Tea Party meeting Monday night at a Lutheran church in Fort Worth, Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who is running for re-election, called for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. This is now apparently something that lieutenant governors now have a say in. “This election is about protecting you and your freedoms, which […]

Our friends at Talking Points Memo think it’s news that Dean Chambers, the delusional data debaucher who gave the world “Unskewed Polls” to prove that Mitt Romney would win the election by eleventy-hundred electoral votes, is pretty sure that Barack Obama is a gay homosexual person who likes men. But this is not actually news! […]

Programming Note: We hear that there’s a Harvard-educated common man talking in front of the Senate in a not-quite filibuster right now, and we promise we’ll have a post about it tomorrow unless you’re lucky and a rogue asteroid ends life on Earth overnight. Longtime Wonkaroos will be astonished to learn that Some People Just […]

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! […]

A California judge has ordered the once-hip adolescent chain boutique Abercrombie & Fitch to pay a quantity of dollars to Umme-Hani Khan because this is America, damn it, and sometimes we get it right. Ms. Khan, a Muslim, “had interviewed wearing a headscarf and … her job was to fold clothes in the stockroom, where she […]

Fun fact: after 9/11, the NYPD created something called  a “demographics unit,” devoted to spending time in South Asian and Middle Eastern neighborhoods in New York, New Haven, and various neighborhoods in New Jersey  under the supervision of a CIA agent who worked closely with another former CIA agent hired by the NYPD shortly after 9/11.

Here is Stephanie Banister of Brisbane, who hopes to win a seat in Australia’s Parliament for the fringey, anti-immigrant One Nation Party. In an interview Wednesday with Channel 7 News, she said, “I don’t oppose Islam as a country, but I do feel that their laws should not be welcome here in Australia,” because after […]

Jim Hoft, the stupidest man on the internet, just wants to let his readers know how pampered the prisoners at Guantanamo are. In a story headlined “Gitmo to Celebrate Holy Ramadan with Feast and Muslim Prayer,” Hoft lays out the shocking details: The US military plans on serving lamb, bread, dates and honey to the […]

It’s the penultimate day of July, which means it’s almost time for the kiddies to start rolling their eyes at all the Back To School sales. And of course, it’s time for wingnuts to stock up on fear, uncertainty, and doubt for the coming school year, too. (Haha, just kidding, that is a year-round activity!) […]
