Ted Cruz’s Virginia Campaign Co-Chair Once Compared Women’s Health Providers to Nazi Death Camps

As Republican primary voters slowly begin to lose their fascination with Donald Trump and Ben Carson, Ted Cruz is poised to make a move toward winning Iowa and New Hampshire. The Iowa caucus is just a few weeks away, and nobody has the campaign infrastructure around the country quite like Cruz does. While Carson and […]

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 […]

When Fascism Comes To America, It’ll Come Wrapped In Racism And Wearing A Bad Toupee

We’ve seen a lot of hatred from the GOP over the past few months prior to the new resurgence of Islamic extremist terrorism. They’ve talked a lot about America being a “Christian nation,” and candidates like Donald Trump have embraced an ultra-nationalist ideology which is extremely disturbing. This rhetoric has resounded solidly with the GOP […]

Donald Trump: We Should ‘Strongly Consider’ Shutting Down Some Mosques In America

In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, the anti-Islam rhetoric has been cranked up to 11. As usual, the right-wing conservative media is abuzz with false stories, including one that claims 10,000 Syrian refugees arrived in New Orleans to be resettled throughout the country. It wasn’t a surprise when Donald Trump decided to leverage […]

ISIS and the “End of the World”: How Apocalyptic Beliefs Influence Their Terror

The attack by ISIS in Paris which killed 129 people on Friday came the same day as the United States announced they had probably killed ISIS “celebrity” executioner Jihadi John.

Ted Cruz Will Attend Rally With Speakers Who Compare Gay People To Satan

Last weekend, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal and Mike Huckabee attended a conference in Iowa led by a conservative radio host who has repeatedly called for the execution of gay people.

Mike Huckabee Endorses Radio Station That Blames Gay People For Terrorist Attacks

If you thought Mike Huckabee’s comments last night on Twitter were bad, you’re totally not going to be surprised by what he did today. Granted, Huckabee’s been pandering to “persecuted Christians” since before this current Republican primary season even began, so his outlandish behavior is nothing new – but it seems like he’s really ramped up […]

Bobby Jindal Blames Planned Parenthood For Louisiana’s Staggering Poverty, STD & Teen Pregnancy Rates

There’s absurdity, there’s the Republican Party, and then there’s Louisiana’s governor Bobby Jindal. This guy says and does things that are so ridiculous, there’s no need to make up stories about his statements as some liberal blogs like Occupy Democrats or Addicting Info have done in the past. All you have to do is search the […]

The First Amendment Was Intended To Protect Us From The Religious Right

Freedom of religion (and from it) was so vital to our Founding Fathers that they made it a key part of the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights. Religious freedom is what this country was originally founded on, and the Puritans demonstrated for us why the separation of church and state is so important […]

Kentucky Court Clerk Says He Is Willing To Die Rather Than Issue Marriage Licenses To Gay Couples

Earlier this year, Glenn Beck warned his listeners that there were at least 10,000 American pastors who were willing to die opposing marriage equality. Now a Kentucky court clerk has claimed that he’s willing to die defying the judicial system which has ordered him and other county clerks to comply with the Supreme Court’s ruling, […]
