10 Completely Idiotic (and Debunked) Conspiracies Many Republicans Actually Believe

During my debates with Republicans, one of the biggest obstacles I deal with isn’t the ideological differences between progressives and conservatives, it’s that the majority of conservatives I deal with don’t believe in facts. Though it’s not just that many of them don’t believe in facts, it’s that they often buy into completely insane conspiracies […]

Donald Trump Epitomizes the Republican Perversion of Real Christian Values

For years I’ve written about my belief that most Republicans aren’t Christians. As a Christian myself, I’m offended by these hypocrites who’ve warped and distorted my faith. This is a political party supported by millions of people who all claim to represent Christian values, while displaying absolutely none. Individuals who truly seem to believe that […]

Trump Voter: I Should Have Voted for Clinton, ‘He Played Me for a Fool’ (Video)

I’ll admit, I don’t have a great deal of sympathy for anyone who voted for Donald Trump eventually regretting their decision later. It’s not that I don’t feel bad if some of their lives are negatively impacted by the decisions he’s making, it’s just hard for me to sympathize a great deal with those who put […]

Here’s One of the Dumbest Fox News Segments They’ve Aired Since Trump Took Office (Video)

Over the years, I’ve seen and heard many… many completely ridiculous things that have been said, posted, or covered on Fox News. When you’re really nothing more than a conservative entertainment network masquerading as a “news” network, that’s bound to happen. That being said, I just saw what is, easily, one of the dumbest segments/articles I’ve ever […]

Fox News Host Hilariously Whines About Trump Supporters Not Liking Facts (Video)

For over 20 years now, Fox News has spent much of its time serving as nothing more than a conservative propaganda machine pretending to be a cable news channel. From their overly patriotic graphics, to their laughable catchphrase “Fair and Balanced,” it’s been a very effective tool at turning the Republican Party into a modern […]

Disgusting Republicans Gut Animal Cruelty Bill to Grandstand About Abortion

Don’t get me wrong, I understand that there are many atrocities in the world, but I’ve always viewed people who are mean to and/or abuse animals to be some of the most vile and disgusting people on the planet. How anyone can purposely mistreat, abuse, or torture animals is nauseating. So it goes without saying that […]

My Message for Sean Hannity: You’re a Hypocrite, a Vile Human Being, and an Asshole

I think it goes without saying that I’m not, by any means, a fan of Fox News’ Sean Hannity. In my opinion, he’s nothing more than conspiracy-pushing hack who spends most of his time pandering to the worst parts of our society. It’s an absolute joke anyone takes this clown seriously and it’s an even […]

10 Ridiculous Myths Republicans Have Conned Their Voters Into Believing

Once upon a time the Republican Party was actually a great American political institution. Despite the pathetic joke it’s become, the GOP is the party of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. It wasn’t until the 50’s and the 60’s, when Republicans embraced what’s known as the “southern strategy” that the party began […]

Trump’s Budget is a $1 Trillion Example of How Much Republicans Hate the Poor

How any poor or middle class American can vote Republican is mind-boggling. It’s a testament to the power of brainwashing, religious manipulation, and preying on fear that the GOP has managed to unabashedly con tens of millions of Americans into supporting policies that go against their own best interests. Look no further than the 2016 election […]

Intelligence Director’s Tuesday Testimony Made Trump Look Even More Guilty (Video)

There are many ways to say something without actually saying it directly. In fact, sometimes what a person doesn’t say is often just as important as what they do. Case in point, what Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said and didn’t say during a Senate Armed Services hearing on Tuesday. One of the biggest […]
