Campaignus Interruptus

So long, Rick…and thanks for all the wanks.

I was wondering when THEY would show up…

Hot on the heels of Trayvon Martin’s murder by an armed white vigilante, we get…this:

And this is what THAT was all about:

A member of the Ku Klux Klan was arrested in Mount Victory, Ohio over the weekend after he allegedly pulled a gun and threatened to shoot a black man during . . . → Read More: I was wondering when THEY would show up…

A few random thoughts about whores

Before we begin, a little mood music:

Ah. Thank you so much for that lovely music (and that uncharacteristic truthfulness), Mr. Limbaugh.

So, Rush…how’s it feel to be at the bottom of your own shit-avalanche for a change? Fun, eh? Yeah, you really had everybody going there, with your “absurdist” humor that isn’t . . . → Read More: A few random thoughts about whores

Heroes for Today: Sandra Fluke, standing tall for women

Watch this video in its entirety and see if you can find anything about this bright young woman that would justify the Pigman, Rush Limbaugh, in calling her a slut simply for asking that her Catholic university provide birth control pills to female students who need them for medical reasons:

Notice, too, how . . . → Read More: Heroes for Today: Sandra Fluke, standing tall for women

Stupid (Anti-)Sex Tricks: The American Lie League, and other hilarious crapagandroids

Need a good laugh tonight? Here ya go:

Mmmmmm, penis cupcakes and vagina macaroons! Yummy!

Jezebel calls this “the most hilariously lewd thing you’ll ever see”, and they’re not far from the truth. This hysterical video inadvertently gives away the makers’ own creepy fetishes. Calling Planned Parenthood a pusher of sex-as-drugs-to-children, and then offering . . . → Read More: Stupid (Anti-)Sex Tricks: The American Lie League, and other hilarious crapagandroids

Maggie’s melancholy marriage crusade, and me

Ahem. A little mood music, maestro:

Ah, that sets the tone brilliantly for what I’m about to say…

And here it is. This morning, this Salon link popped up in my Facebook feed. Maggie Gallagher is a frequent wanker on my weekly list, and it’s not hard to see why. She’s said so many . . . → Read More: Maggie’s melancholy marriage crusade, and me

Goodbye and good riddance

Two obnoxious, hateful, right-wing “family” things went bye-bye today: Karen Fucking Handel from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the last faint flicker of hope for Prop Hate in California.

I’m sure neither will be sadly missed.

Shit Homophobes Say

Notice that all of this is verbatim, no “Shit ____s Say” spoofage needed:

And as a side note, every one of these ‘phobes has previously been wank-listed here for those same words and many, may more. I guess that also makes this a “Shit Wankers Say” video.

When it doesn’t get better

Via The New Civil Rights Movement, I found out a sad thing today. The young man who made this “It Gets Better” video…

…has taken his own life.

Eric James Borges, who took the time to remind bullied queer kids that life will get better, and whose own life was seemingly proof that . . . → Read More: When it doesn’t get better

An open letter to Brendan O’Neill

Dear Brendan O’Neill: You, sir, are a fucking idiot. How’d you like it if I found out where you lived? What would you say if I ferreted out everything about you, from what you eat, to what drugs you do, to how and whom you like to shag, and published all the above right here, […] . . . → Read More: An open letter to Brendan O’Neill

Harper Government™ in pocket of NRA, gun manufacturers. Also, stupid on crime.

It’s getting shittier than ever to be a Canadian, and we are all hanging our heads and shaking them in shame. Because “free” trade (note the quotes) isn’t enough to sell our asses downriver, now Harpo & Co. have sold us out to the gun lobby. Yes, really. The powerful Ruger Mini-14 semi-automatic rifle used […] . . . → Read More: Harper Government™ in pocket of NRA, gun manufacturers. Also, stupid on crime.

Heroes for Today: Alan Grayson

Don’t you love how, in just a minute and a half, he shuts up a whole table full of rightards with nothing but the facts? (And yeah, how about that prick in the green, P.J. O’Rourke? He hauls out every tired right-wing media stereotype of hippies, but doesn’t describe a single leftist that I’ve actually […] . . . → Read More: Heroes for Today: Alan Grayson

When lynching passes for “justice”

Last night, the world witnessed a modern-day judicially sanctioned lynching. Troy Davis was executed last night at 11:08 local time, under heavy protest, in the state of Georgia, by a private contracting corporation that specializes in the “care” of prison inmates. (They are said to be currently hiring paramedics and nurses; one wonders for what […] . . . → Read More: When lynching passes for “justice”

An icky, creepy (yet strangely apt) similarity

Separated at birth? On the left, “Dr.” Marcus Bachmann, spouse of a certain US Republican presidential aspirant, and professional homophobe who always sets my gaydar bleeping. On the right, John Wayne Gacy, psychopath, serial killer of young men and repressed homosexual. No respectable, accredited psychologist or psychiatrist would call homosexuality a disease, much less attempt […] . . . → Read More: An icky, creepy (yet strangely apt) similarity

Economics for Dummies: Mike Ruppert on provocateurs and the British riots

Mike Ruppert, a former drug-enforcement cop from Los Angeles who helped expose the CIA’s role in drug smuggling to the US, analyzes the London riots. These riots have an economic root, and it’s NOT what the conservatives of the British parliament would have us believe. This is actually global in nature, and the Arab Spring […] . . . → Read More: Economics for Dummies: Mike Ruppert on provocateurs and the British riots

What? The Honduran coup isn’t over yet?

Nope: Honduran police have turned professional arsonists. Their targets: Honduran peasant villagers. Their employers: Big illegal landowners who refuse to recognize the campesinos’ land claims under a 12-year-old agrarian reform law. Their enemy: President Manuel Zelaya, ousted in 2009 by a coup. Zelaya DID recognize the campesinos’ lawful right to the land. Which is just […] . . . → Read More: What? The Honduran coup isn’t over yet?

Ah, memories!

This video, from 1990, shows Rush Limbaugh filling in for Pat Sajak on the latter’s short-lived (if you blinked, you missed it) TV talk show…and getting clobbered, metaphorically speaking, by an anything-but-captive audience: In the first segment, the Pigman tries to tackle the subject of abortion. He uses a Ms. Potato Head doll to represent […] . . . → Read More: Ah, memories!
