Is Indiana Gov. Mike Pence The Michael Jordan Of Hating Gays?

He had met the circled hatemongers before, you know.
Hypothesis: Mike Pence Is The Michael Jordan Of Hating Gays Indiana Gov. Mike Pence did himself a right nice presser Tuesday morning, wherein he explained that he is Not Sorry for signing the Fuck The Gays bill, which he does not understand, but that he wants to clarify that he in no way, shape, or form wants the law to be used to actually fuck the gays. And never, in his whole life, has he supported discrimination, no sir. Read more on Is Indiana Gov. Mike Pence The Michael Jordan Of Hating Gays?…

Homosexual Spotted At Michigan Newspaper, May Be Armed With Agenda, Caution Advised!

Don't open the folder or glitter will get fucking everywhere.
God-bothering Michigan state Rep. Gary Glenn, who is also president of the American Family Association of Michigan, has an ALERT and a DRUDGE SIREN and, hopefully, a SHOCK VIDEO, to share with the people who populate the city of Midland:  There is a homosexual, and he is at the newspaper right now, and even worse than that, they have made him the editor!

Handsome Joe Biden Knows How Stupid Ben Carson’s Gay Prison Comments Were, Jesus, God!

Do you all remember last week, when Republican Presidential (Hilariously) Hopeful Ben Carson said that we know that gayness is a choice, due to all these dudes go to prison, and they end up doing Guy Sex while they’re in there? And how when they get out of prison, they never sexxx a lady again, due to they have been cured of their heterosexuality, by the guy who runs the prison gang? (He didn’t say that part, but we’re taking it to its natural conclusion.) Read more on Handsome Joe Biden Knows How Stupid Ben Carson’s Gay Prison Comments Were, Jesus, God!…

Completely Real Coalition Of African-American Pastors To Give ‘MLK Award’ To Alabama’s Roy Moore

A group that calls itself the Coalition of African-American Pastors has finally found a freedom fighter worthy of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy, and it is the holistically bigoted Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, he who has been heroically standing in the gay courthouse door, for freedom, pretty much this entire year, and whose court buddies on Tuesday decided to set up camp in their own courthouse doors to protect Alabama from gay marriage, at least until SCOTUS crams it down all their throats for good in June.

A Silver Lining: For-Profit Prisons Will Let You Keep Pets!

Here is today’s quiz about capitalism: if y0u are in the prison-running business and you want to make a profit, do you: a) staff the prison with as few people as possible (to save money on wages) b) provide prisoners with plastic bags instead of toilets (to save money on expenses associated with water, plumbing, and whatnot) c) refuse to give prisoners prescribed medication (to save money on expenses associated with adequate medical care) d) lock mentally ill patients in solitary confinement instead of providing them with mental health care (to save money on expenses associated with adequate mental health care) e) all of the above. If you guessed “all of the above” you win the prize, you win the prize! Who would have guessed that the for-profit prison model articulates so well with depriving prisoners of humane conditions? A shocking twist indeed! From the Southern Poverty Law Center, which filed a federal lawsuit yesterday on behalf of prisoners at the East Mississippi Correctional Facility: [The prison is] a filthy, dangerous facility “operating in a perpetual state of crisis” where prisoners are at “grave risk of death and loss of limbs” and often resort to setting fires to receive medical attention.

Here’s A New One: Idaho CPA Secretly Wrote White-Supremacist Books, Talked To Hitler In His Head

Well, here’s a change. We’ve written about Carl Hiaasen characters come to life in Washington, so how about a Kurt Vonnegut character in Idaho? Sadly, it is not Montana Wildhack or Kilgore Trout or even Eliot Rosewater. No, Idaho gets stuck with an accountant who wants us to think he’s Howard W. Campbell, the protagonist of Mother Night — you know, the decent patriotic guy who pretends to become a Nazi, for good reasons, only nobody remembers he’s undercover, so he eventually gets tried for war crimes? That’s pretty much what Timothy Stephen Folke, an accountant from Payette, Idaho, insisted he was up to. In the Southern Poverty Law Center’s summer Intelligence Report, Heidi Beirich details the white-supremacist screeds written by Folke under the pseudonym “Farnham O’Reilly,” and notes that “in a bizarre series of E-mails,” the accountant explained to her that he didn’t really mean it when he was cranking out racist fantasies and manifestoes — it was all just part of a “project” to find out more about actual racists, of which he was definitely not one, of course. He just liked their interest in nature. Sounds plausible! Maybe Folke would have done well to read Mother Night instead, what with the advice about how we become what we pretend to be, so be careful about that? Oh, yeah, and Folke also wrote that he heard the voice of Adolf Hitler talking to him inside his head. That bit wasn’t in Vonnegut, though, because who would believe something like that?

American Family Association Puts End To Travesty Of Children Being Nice To Each Other

What marvelous thing has the American Family Association done for Western civilization now? Oh, just succeeded in getting upwards of 20 elementary schools to drop out of “Mix It Up At Lunch Day,” an annual program that teams up kids who normally wouldn’t sit together at lunch, and makes them sit together at lunch. Does this lead to breaking up nasty cliques, and helping to fight bullying? No. It leads to butt-pirating and carpet-munching. It’s right there in the title: Mix It Up? THAT IS LIKE TOSSING SALAD, WHICH IS A THING YOU DO WITH YOUR TONGUE AND A BUTT! The one (1) school that bothered to return the New York Times’s calls on the matter said dropping the program had nothing to do with parental pressure and the AFA. No! It was just that teachers were really busy drilling the students for tests! So they couldn’t take the time away from that, to spend like 10 minutes at the outside drawing names and pairing kids up. For lunch. Which would have taken place during … lunch. Balls of steel, school! How do you fit that heroic bravery into those pants?

Michelle Malkin: Why Is the Southern Poverty Law Center Always Shooting The Family Research Council With Guns?

A security guard at the building of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., was shot today. After the Dark Knight mass shooting in Colorado, the Sikh Temple mass shooting in Wisconsin, and yet another in Texas, it is time we as a nation took a step back and realized who the real victims are: conservatives. Michelle Malkin’s bullshit Twitter site, Twitchy, is aggregating “leftist hatred” (read: things from assholes who have 17 followers) about the shootings. When prior shootings happened, Malkin took to the airwaves to denounce “blame righty” syndrome, because it is unfair to politicize inexplicably terrible tragedies. Luckily, the victim at the FRC shooting only got hit in the arm, so, um, game on!

Suspended From School In Mississippi? That’s A Jailing

We at Wonkette have been pretty excited about Louisiana lately, what with revealing that they are one of the more awful states of the union in terms of infant mortality and life expectancy and whatnot, and also because they will teach about the Loch Ness monster in science class (so long as they don’t have to teach about it to MUSLIM children because that would just be going too far). Turns out we were so fascinated with Louisiana that we forgot about Mississippi, which is really doubling down on the fight against education these days, what with their “school-to-prison” pipeline that incarcerates students for minor infractions at school. You will be shocked, SHOCKED, to learn that African American students are over-represented in this disciplinary strategy. (The disciplinary strategy of sending children to jail when they get suspended from school!) Read more on Suspended From School In Mississippi? That’s A Jailing…

Someone Should Step In Before White Supremacist Murderers Get Hurt

Two horrific mass shootings have rocked our world in the past few weeks. In Aurora, CO, an insane man walked into a theater and shot dozens of innocent people, leaving us with a hollow pit in our souls as we searched for an answer to the question of why an ABC news man was so mean to the Tea Party. On Sunday, a white supremacist committed another mass shooting in a Sikh gurdwara, which the Southern Poverty Law Center totally called because he was in a shitty white supremacist band. Again, after a horrific event, we are left with a single burning question that only Ann Althouse’s commenters can answer: WTF, SPLC? What did the white supremacist ever do to you before he killed and injured all those people? Read more on Someone Should Step In Before White Supremacist Murderers Get Hurt…

‘Child Of Civil Rights Movement’ Totally Fires Teacher For Encouraging Super Polite Trayvon Fundraiser

Aw, listen to how sweet these Michigan junior high kids are, you guys. They wanted to hold a fundraiser for Travyon Martin’s family: [T]he students wanted to help Martin’s family and asked the school’s administrators if they could pay $1 each to wear hoodies instead of school uniform for a day, the [Southern Poverty Law Center] said. It said the school regularly has fundraisers in which students can “dress down.” So yeah, the literature teacher who encouraged them to ask has totally been fired.
