Islamophobia

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 […]

If there’s anything to be learned from the flap over MSNBC’s mean cereal-based tweet, it’s that you should never reduce people to one-dimensional stereotypes. (OK, that and MSNBC will lean backwards to placate screamy butthurt Republicans.) And so, with this important lesson in mind, let us consider the may facets of Tennessee Congresscritter Scott DesJarlais, […]

We hope you’ll indulge our fondness for the paranoid ravings of Jim Garrow, the “CIA spy” who likes to tell radio talk show wingnut Erik Rush all about Barack Obama’s secret plans to nuke America and to fool us into thinking that space aliens have contacted the White House, so that Russia and Canada can […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. ‚ÄúThis election is about protecting you and your freedoms, which […]

Blogging is largely a matter of finding the right stuff to write about. For instance, we see that the Washington Post has a new political science blog feature called “The Monkey Cage” – from the H.L. Mencken quote, “Democracy is the art of running the circus from the monkey cage.” And its first post is […]

Paranoid anti-Muslim savior of western civilization Pam Geller must go through a lot of undies, considering her ability to soil them at the slightest hint of MUSLIM JIHAD TERROR. Consider this scary headline from Sunday: “FBI WARNS: MUSLIM TERRORISTS PLAN TO ATTACK FUEL STORAGE PLANTS INSIDE U.S.” And her lede is full of I-told-you-so victimhood […]

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!) […]

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 […]

Well, thank goodness the wingnutosphere has finally found an angle on this NSA story that makes them feel all special and put-upon! In a story that has absolutely nothing to do with the recent flap over PRISM, BLARNEY, and SMERSH, here is the headline — from nominal business site and wingnut clearinghouse “Investor’s Business Daily” […]

You guys should go take a look at Ana Marie Wossername’s thinky piece about how the wingnut media doesn’t seem to have learned a damn thing from the failure of its “Obama Is Evil” narrative in the 2012 election. It’s pretty good, and we think this writer has a lot of potential. But we honestly […]

Barry West, a county commissioner for Coffee County, Tennessee, would like to know why he’s being “singled out” for having posted this witty little image on his Facebook page last Saturday. After all, it’s not him in the picture, and he didn’t make up the image. All he did was share it, and then a […]

In yet another case of the Clash of Civilizations, members of Austria’s Turkish community are angrier than a Twi’lek having a bad lekku day at the makers of Lego building blocks because they believe that the Lego “Jabba The Hutt’s Palace” playset might spark Islamophobia and cause children to associate Islam with terrorism and violence.
