Catholic High School Teachers In Gay Trouble

Good way to get out of that Calculus exam.
The kids of Dowling Catholic High School in Des Moines seem pretty cool, for stinky teenagers. They have a substitute teacher they really like, Tyler McCubbin, who is engaged to be married to his boyfriend, in a gay way. Which is legal to do in Iowa. McCubbin was in line for a full-time position at the school, but was rejected because his big gay life, according to the Diocese, “was at odds with Church teaching.” This pissed the students off, so instead of taking it lying down, they decided to stage a walkout: Read more on Catholic High School Teachers In Gay Trouble…

James O’Keefe Can’t Get Anyone To Say They Want To Kill Cops, Sadface :(

NOTE: Only one of these photos is a mug shot
Poor James O’Keefe has had another of his very serious undercover filmmaking projects blow up in his face, it appears. And for the strangest of reasons: a couple of his employees at “Project Veritas” seem to have decided that one of O’Keefe’s projects was actually too morally indefensible even for them.

Poor Dears At U Of Iowa Terribly Upset By Anti-Racist Art Piece. Makeup Tests For Everyone!

Even the far-left liberal blog Wonkette says you don't get a free pass over art that bothers you
The University of Iowa has urged faculty members to let students miss or re-take tests if they were upset over some campus art that was SUPER RACIST (because it addressed racism). Apparently some students were so broken up over either the artwork itself — or the controversy surrounding its removal by the university — that they simply couldn’t get their schoolwork done. Letting students ignore their assignments because they had really strong feelings about a work of art strikes us as maybe a bad idea?

Muslim Texans Singing (American) National Anthem Shouted Down By The *Real* Patriots

She seems nice
Thursday was “Texas Muslim Capitol Day,” an annual event held to encourage Muslim Texans to visit the state capitol in Austin and learn about state government and how to meet with lawmakers and such. Which means, of course, that a few Patriotic TexAmericans decided that the Muslims were taking over the Capitol so they can CRAM SHARIA LAW DOWN ARE THROATS!!!1!! There were angry protestors out on the statehouse lawn, and state Rep. Molly White left this important message on her FacePlaceSpace: Read more on Muslim Texans Singing (American) National Anthem Shouted Down By The *Real* Patriots…

Fox Knows Who Is To Blame For Ferguson Riots (It’s Still Eric Holder Obvs)

They just can't seem to quit him
Fox News wasted no time in repackaging the news that the Justice Department is not expected to file civil rights charges against Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown, according to a report in the New York Times, into an astonishingly distorted pack of lies about Ferguson. Yes, we know you’re shocked. Read more on Fox Knows Who Is To Blame For Ferguson Riots (It’s Still Eric Holder Obvs)…

NYPD Making Friends And Influencing People, Except The Opposite Of That

Not actual NYPD officers
New York cops may want to rethink whether they were making friends and influencing people when they turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio at funerals of two murdered NYPD officers. A new Quinnipiac University poll of New York City voters found that on the whole, people disapproved of the act by a margin of 69-27 percent. Only one demographic category approved, and just barely: Republicans were cool with it, 51-47 percent. Even cop-friendly Staten Island residents disapproved, although by the narrowest margin of any borough, with 50 percent disapproving and 47 percent approving.

NYPD Cops So Sad At Mayor De Blasio They Just Can’t Fight Crime Anymore

Take a nap on your own time
It’s a great week to jaywalk or jump turnstiles in New York City, as cops have pretty much decided to stop being cops at all until Mayor Bill de Blasio disowns his black son or at least makes him personally thank every police on the force for keeping him safe. Following the murder of two officers by a suicidal man who was not, we must note, the Mayor of New York, police have turned their backs not only on Bill de Blasio, but also on doing their jobs. The New York Post reports that “traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent” since the murders.

Rudy Giuliani To Obama: Stop Personally Murdering All The Cops, Right Now!

Screw you too, pal
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani placed the blame for the murders of two New York City policemen Saturday squarely where it belonged: on President Barack Obama, who had personally whispered “Go kill some cops” into the ear of Ismaaiyl Brinsley, a Baltimore man who killed himself after shooting the two officers, plus his girlfriend. (A lot of people keep forgetting about the girlfriend.) In an interview on Fox & Friends Sunday, Giuliani explained that the President and others had pretty much been calling for the killing of police ever since the August shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri: Read more on Rudy Giuliani To Obama: Stop Personally Murdering All The Cops, Right Now!…

Rick Perry Sure Is Glad You Don’t Have To Be Smart To Be President

Oops ad infinitum
Gosh, Gov. Rick Perry (R-Indicted) sure is eager to convince us that he is SO ready to run for president in 2016. He’s been practicing his counting and his ABCs, and he’s got those glasses, and he’s stopped popping pain pills, and this time, America, this time, we won’t be laughing our asses off forever and ever and some-other-word-we-can’t-remember-what about the comedy gold that was Perry’s last attempt to win the White House. And golly gee whiz, he sure is off to a good start: Read more on Rick Perry Sure Is Glad You Don’t Have To Be Smart To Be President…

Ferguson Grand Jury Says Darren Wilson Killed Michael Brown But It’s Cool

After dropping days of just-kidding hints and sending the media into a third-degree frenzy Monday, the grand jury mulling the fate of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson finally released its decision. St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch announced that Wilson will not face charges relating to the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, as the grand jury found “no probable cause” to charge him with anything. Social media, however, is definitely guilty. Read more on Ferguson Grand Jury Says Darren Wilson Killed Michael Brown But It’s Cool…

St. Louis Sportsball Fans Chant ‘Africa! Africa!’ At Black Ferguson Protesters, Because They Are Nice

Do you sometimes look at the News coming out of our great nation and wonder who in Jesus’s name these people fucking are? Maybe it was the blonde lady screaming spittle-flecked curses at brown babies in Murrietta. Maybe it was Sean Hannity’s minions saying Trayvon Martin deserved to die. Or maybe you live in St. Louis, and you already know. Read more on St. Louis Sportsball Fans Chant ‘Africa! Africa!’ At Black Ferguson Protesters, Because They Are Nice…

Fox’s Gretchen Carlson Tells Protesting Colorado Punks To Love It Or Leave It

Hey, Kids, you won one! Now get back to studying!
Fox News lady Gretchen Carlson has just about had it with these radical extremist Denver-area high school students and their unruly protests over proposed changes to the history curriculum. The walkouts have continued all week, and have spread to additional schools. And by golly, Gretchen is angry that these kids would dare to object to the school board’s simple wish that they learn patriotism and respect for authority.

Ferguson Police Chief Real Sorry Or Something, So That’s All Over Now

Mistakes were made
Attention, America: All of the fuss over the shooting of Michael Brown and the Keystone Stormtroopers police response is now taken care of, because Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson is real sorry that he and his police department were a bunch of useless (but murdery!) jerks, and has issued a video apology to Brown’s parents and Ferguson’s black community, at least the well-behaved segment of it. Let’s watch the video and see if there’s anything Jackson leaves out! Read more on Ferguson Police Chief Real Sorry Or Something, So That’s All Over Now…

Hundreds of Patriots, Cleverly Disguised As Tourists, Rally For Impeachment At White House

At noon on Saturday, the Real Americans of the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area were set to celebrate National Impeach Obama Week by meeting at the White House to call for the immediate impeachment of Kenyan Usurper President Barry Soetoro. The Wonket Washington Bureau readied full team coverage and had the interns price out some down-market gas masks, expecting a constitutionally righteous mob of sign-wielding activists surging forward against a line of police officers summoned from surrounding jurisdictions.

  Still Life With Al Jazeera and Teargas.

Mike Brown’s Body Lay Mouldering On The Ground (With Six Bullets In It)

hey guys
Image from Tim Pool’s livestream via YouTube As last week drew to a close, hopes were high that Ferguson might have turned a corner. Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol was in charge, and the demonstration he attended Thursday night was both the largest and the most peaceful in the five days since Michael Brown’s shooting. Then, on Friday, the Ferguson Police Department, evidently without asking or even warning Captain Johnson, released still photos and video allegedly showing Michael Brown involved in a “strong-arm robbery” at a nearby business before he was shot.

Ferguson Protesters Celebrate Their Right To Choo Choo Choose You

I don't remember Thomas ever looking so manic
As Snipy noted earlier, the transfer of policing in Ferguson, Missouri, from the local Seal Team Six Wannabes to the Highway Patrol turned last night’s turnout into more of a block party, as people celebrated being able to go out in their own streets again without being tear gassed. And one of the stranger entries in the parade was this bizarre kiddie ride pressed into service as a vehicle for protest/celebration. It got a lot of attention, and while Snipy already shared this Vine image in her earlier post, we have to agree it’s pretty awesome and worth another look: Read more on Ferguson Protesters Celebrate Their Right To Choo Choo Choose You…

A Snark-Free Welcome to Captain Ron Johnson, New King of Ferguson

Greetings, Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Photo: Jamil Smith via Twitter It’s not true what they say. Liberals, even liberals from the big city, don’t hate everyone in law enforcement. Speaking on behalf of the liberal media cabal, we’re behind you, Ron Johnson, in the dicey assignment you’ve just been handed as the new top cop in Ferguson. You seem like a good choice. We don’t blame you for the almost comical overreaction of the police over the past several days of protests, since you were not in charge. You are as innocent as a newborn baby to us because like pretty much everyone in America we have no reason to have heard of you.

Evil Stupid Dick Explains Why Michael Brown Deserved To Die

He's a GANGSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey, everybody, just stop feeling bad about the police in Ferguson, Missouri, shooting unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown dead while he had his hands up — Jim Hoft, the Stupidest Man On the Internet, wants you all to know that it’s no big loss, since Michael Brown was a 100% certified GANGSTER who HAD A GUN (maybe, in a Facebook photo of a completely different person — give him time, and Hoft will probably start hinting that Brown had a gun when he was shot, too). While the photo above has been in circulation since shortly after Brown was shot, Our Stupid Hero appears to be the first to jump from “photographed gesturing like a rap gangster” to “was a GANGSTER.” Hoft has since backed off that original headline, of which Chris Johnson at Little Green Footballs wisely archived a copy at Webcitation in case Hoft “tries to edit it without admitting it.” Which Hoft did, of course.

Ferguson PD Embraces Equality by Arresting Reporters of All Races

bright lights
On Wednesday night, the police in Ferguson, Missouri, wanted everyone to clear out of the local McDonald’s, which had turned into a makeshift media center with reporters charging their phones and using the wifi to file stories about the protests only a few blocks away. When officers ordered all the patrons to leave, Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery made two fateful missteps: he did not snap to and flee immediately and furthermore would not stop running his pesky camera.
