Conservative Conspiracy Fanatic Claims An Invasion Of 100 Million Muslim Refugees Is Coming

While most people are familiar with right-wing conspiracy nuts like Glenn Beck or Alex Jones from InfoWars, there is a much larger pool of lesser-known media figures that are all competing for space in the small, but crowded conspiracy market. Part of being successful in this industry is playing to the fears of people who […]

Sandy Hook Conspiracy Nut Disrupts Charity Race For Slain Newtown Teacher

Almost 3 years ago, a crazed 20-year-old gunman, armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and two pistols, gunned down 20 elementary school children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Almost as soon as the shooting was reported, conspiracy nuts declared that the horrific killing didn’t really happen. As ridiculous as it may seem, […]

5 Websites Liberals Really Need To Stop Sharing From

I often see people who call themselves liberals or progressives claim that they’re so much smarter and well-informed than Republicans. Over and over again, they tout their intellectual superiority while pointing to conservatives as being ignorant for believing “news” sources like¬†Fox News or The Blaze. As much as liberals are right about those sources, many […]

The NRA Represents A Part Of America Desperate To Hold On to White Supremacy

Sometimes with national news stories like last week’s shooting in Oregon, I prefer to let a few days go by before writing about it. In the heat of the moment, it is easy to say something you later wish you hadn’t, especially when all the details of the story haven’t come to light yet. Now […]

No, Hillary Clinton Does Not Work For Monsanto

Hillary Clinton has had a long career of service both in charity, law, and government. Starting in the 1960s, she became involved with politics, starting as a Republican, but soon becoming a Democrat in 1968. For any politician, male or female, she has a very impressive resume. Now she wants to be the next president […]

Michael Savage Says Obama is Planning Anti-White Genocide, According to Mayan Prophecy

We’ve talked about Michael Savage before. You know, the guy who created Rockstar energy drinks with his son, Russell Weiner, and rails on about how Obama is going destroy America on his radio show? The same Michael Savage, originally named Dr. Michael Weiner, who was a homeopathy and herbal medicine book author in the 1980s […]

Alex Jones: The LGBT Movement’s Master Plan Is Human Extermination (Video)

On a fairly regular basis, I see people share links from Infowars claiming that vaccines cause autism, that Big Pharma is hiding the truth about cancer, or that the government is planning to microchip everyone by the year 2017. These aren’t wacked out conservatives who believe that the annual military exercise known as Jade Helm […]

Vermont Governor Signs Law Eliminating Vaccination Exemption Loophole

The pendulum is slowly but surely beginning to swing back against the anti-vaccine movement. Last Thursday, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed a bill which removes the philosophical exemptions loophole in the state’s vaccination laws. In California, a law (SB 277) is working its way through the State Assembly that would also remove the ability for […]

California Senate Passes Bill Ending “Personal Beliefs” Vaccines Loophole

Vaccines do not cause autism. Repeat after me, vaccines DO NOT cause autism. We’ve been over this time and time again, but there are still people out there who take the advice of D-list celebrities and a discredited British doctor¬†over the overwhelming consensus of the medical and scientific communities. Yet, there are still states here […]

6 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Monsanto

Seed manufacturer Monsanto Company has been the target of a lot of criticism over the past few years, including a couple of articles that I wrote when I first started writing for Forward Progressives. In 2013, the first annual March Against Monsanto took place. It was supposedly in response to the failure of California Proposition […]
