Doctored Emails Being Shopped Trying to ‘Prove’ Ridiculous Parkland Town Hall Conspiracy

While conspiracy theories have always been rather popular among conservatives, since the election of Donald Trump they’ve become mainstream. Being a mentally unhinged conspiracy-pusher himself, Trump’s managed to make conspiracies about “deep state motives being led by the FBI to remove him from office” and “paid actors being funded by George Soros to come after […]

The One Question That Left My Gun-Loving NRA Friend Completely Speechless

Normally I don’t seek out my Republicans friends or family members for political debates because I know doing so is a futile endeavor that’s just going to waste my time. However, I made an exception today when one of my friends posted something mocking people calling for new gun regulations that, quite frankly, pissed me […]

Arming Teachers is One of the Dumbest Ideas in the History of Dumb Ideas

Like many people reading this I know quite a few people who are currently teachers or were at some point. A high-stress, vastly underpaid (and underappreciated) profession, year after year teachers are burdened with more and more responsibilities that, let’s face it, in many instances the¬†parents¬†should actually be taking care of. Over the last few […]

The Parkland Massacre Has Put the True Depravity of Many Conservatives and Gun Nuts on Full Display

We’re now living in a society where it’s apparently acceptable to criticize, attack, and push conspiracies against survivors — most of whom are teenagers — of a massacre that left 17 human beings dead. Well, it’s “acceptable” if you’re a gun fanatic or a member of the right-wing media they follow. To decent human beings, […]

The Next Time Someone Blames Gun Violence Solely on Mental Illness, Show Them This

Like clockwork, whenever there’s some high-profile mass shooting that doesn’t involve a Muslim shooter, Republicans regurgitate the same three things: “Thoughts and prayers.” Claim now is not the time to talk about gun violence. Blame mental illness. Over and over again, Republicans churn out the same b.s. while doing absolutely nothing to address gun violence. […]

Here’s How the Texas Church Massacre Exposes the Massive Flaw in Leading Pro-Gun Myth

As it typically goes, following the most recent mass shooting at a church in Texas, Republicans offered their usual “thoughts and prayers,” while gun fanatics insisted that gun regulations wouldn’t have prevented this. Though pro-gun supporters were delighted to find out that one individual who lived near the church heard the gunfire, grabbed his gun, […]

My Trump-Supporting Friend Tried to Slam Me About Gun Regulations, They Didn’t Like My Response

After the latest high-profile mass shooting in Las Vegas, the worst in United States history, once again, the debate over guns in this country was making headlines. Only this time I wasn’t holding back. Like many of you, I was sick and tired of people saying, “Now isn’t the time to talk about gun regulations.” […]

For Some Reason, Republicans and Gun Fanatics Hate Seeing These Facts About the Second Amendment

Talking about the Constitution is always a tricky thing. While our Bill of Rights was undoubtedly one of the most important documents ever written, it’s basically taboo for anyone to bring up the fact that it’s over 200 years old, composed by men who could never have envisioned what society would become. To be fair, […]

Oops: Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Slips Up, Makes Great Argument for Banning Semi-Automatic Guns (Video)

A “trick,” if you want to call it that, Republicans use to manipulate people into falling for their propaganda is by playing what I call the “all-or-nothing” game. It’s where they essentially argue that if something they oppose won’t fix 100 percent of the problem, then it’s terrible and pointless. For example, when they talk […]

I Have a Message for Those Saying Now Isn’t the Time to Talk About Gun Violence

After the atrocious massacre that happened in Las Vegas, the last thing I want to hear anyone say is, “This isn’t the time to have a debate on guns.” Words cannot express how sick and tired I am of hearing that line. It’s what they said after mass shootings at: Columbine: 13 killed Aurora: 12 […]
