White Supremacist David Duke on Donald Trump: He Speaks ‘A Lot More Radically’ Than I Do

This was the election cycle during which the GOP planned on showing us that they had moved beyond the Southern Strategy. They were happy about the campaigns of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both of Hispanic origin. They also had a woman, Carly Fiorina, as well as Ben Carson, a celebrated neurologist who also happened […]

Ohio Republicans Want Women To Record Their Miscarriages

If you’re a woman and you have been pregnant, there’s a decent chance you’ve had a miscarriage, or even an abortion. Out of every pregnancy, as many as 25 percent end in a miscarriage. This a common and sad fact of human reproduction, but now Ohio lawmakers want women to sign a form to keep a […]

Anti-Abortion Activist Admits Planned Parenthood Videos Were Designed To Destroy Organization

It shouldn’t come as any surprise to us that the videos created by the Center for Medical Progress were intended to destroy Planned Parenthood. After the dubious and heavily-edited footage was released, conservatives pounced on these videos as part of their campaign to defund Planned Parenthood. Republicans in Congress are advancing a bill to end […]

Colorado State Rep. Blames Planned Parenthood For Domestic Terrorist Attack At Their Clinic

Rep. JoAnn Windholz represents the 30th District in Colorado’s state legislature. This district is in an area that should have elected a Democrat instead of a severely conservative Republican, but JoAnn Windholz managed to squeak out a narrow victory over the Democratic incumbent. JoAnn Windholz is also very much an opponent of Planned Parenthood, and […]

Vacuous Fox News Co-hosts Should Win Award For Dumbest Segment On Planned Parenthood Attack

To say I’m shocked by some of the ridiculous conservative responses to the recent Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs would be a lie. Basically from the moment I first saw the report of the shooting fly across my Twitter feed, I began contemplating how Republicans were going to try to spin this. After all, […]

The Same Christian “Celebrity” Behind Red Cup Outrage Actually Encouraged Followers to Attack Planned Parenthood

Earlier this month, before everyone’s attention was turned to terrorism (both foreign and domestic), there was a short period of time when all the buzz was about the new red holiday cups at Starbucks. Remember that story, and how a social media grifter by the name of Joshua Feuerstein posed with a gun in a […]

Ted Cruz Claims Most Violent Felons Are Actually Democrats

On Monday, Senator Ted Cruz told a talk show host that the vast majority of violent criminals are Democrats. In the wake of the recent attack on Planned Parenthood by a man who apparently espoused right-wing conservative ideas, this is obviously an attempt by Ted Cruz to reinforce the idea with his base that this […]

The GOP’s Right-Wing Terror Campaign Against Planned Parenthood

As most probably know by now, there was a domestic terrorist attack at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs yesterday afternoon. Three people were confirmed dead, including one police officer. The suspect, who was taken alive, is a white male that apparently carried out his attack with an assault rifle. All signs point to right-wing terrorism, […]

America’s Fake Patriotism Is An Insult To Our Veterans

At every sporting event I’ve been to over the past couple of decades, there has been some sort of tribute to the armed forces. Even at the SPHL hockey games here in Louisiana, we have everything from ticket giveaways to veterans to military recruits taking their oath of enlistment on the ice in between periods. […]

5 Things America Will Lose If Conservatives Win In 2016

I recently wrote about how much trouble Democrats are in if they fail to vote in every election. There is no doubt about it, right-wing conservatives, backed by unlimited corporate funding, are successfully eroding rights and slashing regulations in every state they control. This is especially evident here in Louisiana where Bobby Jindal and right-wing conservatives […]
