Fox News’ Elisabeth Hasselbeck Advocates Unconstitutional Violation of Voting Rights


I’ll be honest, I’ve sometimes joked that people should have to be required to take a test before they can vote. Not because I want to disenfranchise anyone from voting, but because it’s a bit terrifying when you think about the fact that millions of people vote who have absolutely no idea who it is […]

Jon Stewart Crushes the Stupidity of Republicans on Science Committee: ‘Are You F**king Kidding Me?!?!’ (Video)


When it comes to pointing out the absolute stupidity often shown by Republicans, few do it better than Jon Stewart. Then again, when you’re dealing with a joke of a political party, what better place to mock that idiocy than on Comedy Central? Take for instance Stewart’s absolutely thrashing of three Republicans on the House Committee […]

One of ISIL’s Biggest Strengths is Also its Biggest Weakness

We’ve heard a lot of back and forth rhetoric concerning the radical Islamic terrorist organization known as ISIS or ISIL, and rightfully so. This is a group that makes al-Qaeda look like a bunch of amateurs. They’re organized, well funded, armed and extremely motivated. Hell, they’ve seized oil fields and are actually selling oil. They’re probably […]

Exposing the Horrifying Truth About Liberals


I give in, conservatives have beaten me. They’ve finally convinced me the horrors that might come from a nation ruled by liberal ideology. And let me tell you, it would be a nightmare. Could you imagine if the United States was a country where we had universal health care and millions of people weren’t saddled […]

Fox News’ Pirro Makes Herself Look Like an Absolute Fool During Over-the-top ISIS Rant


I’ll admit that I’ve used some hyperbole when discussing Fox News, but that’s just the nature of writing. But I’m serious when I say that the segment I just watched from Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro is probably the most outrageous thing I’ve ever seen from the network. And, yes, that includes Eric Bolling’s recent segment where […]

Jesus Christ Would Be Ashamed to See the Republican Party Manipulating People Using His Name


Whenever I run across a holier-than-thou right-wing Christian, I like confronting them on their belief in Jesus Christ. Not because I want to mock their Christian faith (I am a Christian), but because I simply cannot grasp how someone can call themselves a Republican and a Christian. Jesus Christ, whether you believe he existed or not, represented a certain […]

Fox News Finally Loses It: Uses ‘Success’ of Japanese Internment Camps to Advocate Profiling Muslims (Video)


While it doesn’t exactly shock me, I’m appalled at what I just watched. On Fox News’ Cashin’ In, Eric Bolling and his four person panel decided to tackle the “most controversial” topic ever discussed on the show. The topic: Should we profile Muslims? Their answer? Yes, we should. Not only that, but one panelist used our use […]

Fox News Caught Blatantly Editing 60 Minutes Interview to Slander Obama Administration (Video)


The right-wing propaganda machine strikes again. This time, Fox News was caught by Media Matters clearly editing a 60 Minutes interview with Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. During a part of the interview, Panetta discussed his opposition to the 2011 removal of all U.S. military forces from Iraq. If you watch the Fox News clip, they only show him […]

Republican House Candidate Makes Outrageous Statement About Illegal Immigration (Video)


The topic of what we should do in this country about illegal immigration often sparks quite the heated debate. While most Americans agree that something needs to be done, there’s clearly a huge gap between many of us on exactly what we should do. On one side we have those who support a sensible path […]

John Boehner Shows Off His Callousness While Berating Unemployed Americans


Whenever Republicans try to pretend to care about average Americans, I usually just laugh. Time and time again members of the Republican party show what disdain they really have for the vast majority of Americans. Sure, they mask this disdain in often well-worded propaganda that those who don’t like to think for themselves eat right […]
