The Atlantic writer Jeffrey Tayler is annoyed at the “educated elite” in our country. Why have they not risen to the occasion and labeled passionate religious belief a mental illness? The writer’s disappointment followed the release of an article on The News Nerd entitled “ American Psychological Association to Classify Belief in God as a Mental Illness. ” In the story, Psychologist Dr. Lillian Andrews had stated: “The time for evolving into a modern society and classifying these archaic beliefs as a mental disorder has been long overdue.” Yet the article, it turned out, was a hoax. Alas for Mr... continue reading
ABC’s Nightline hyped a polyamorous, “trailblazing triad” on Thursday evening, highlighting the threesome’s “unusual modern family.” The segment began with a shot of the throuple in bed together with their two children, who share a father but were each born to one of his “wives.” “This triad wants to make it clear that they are not polygamists,” ABC’s Abbie Boudreau eagerly explained, and that they are all sexual partners with each other. This arrangement began when Melinda Phoenix decided she wanted to add a man to her “marriage” to Dani, a woman. Two lesbians decided they desired a masculine man... continue reading
Don’t agree with something? Then discredit it by calling it “fake,” as exemplified by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. During the July 22 Rachel Maddow Show , Maddow said presidential candidate Jeb Bush visited a “fake abortion clinic,” in other words, a crisis pregnancy center. To begin, MSNBC’s Maddow commented that, for the 2016 presidential candidates, “the only way to get a bump in national poll numbers seems to be talking about and fighting with and otherwise situating yourself somehow in the orbit of Donald Trump.” But some candidates “are trying to get attention in other ways,” she admitted. Candidates like... continue reading
Its old news that Jimmy Carter believes Jesus would support gay marriage and some abortion. But Fox News? Well, Carter doesn’t like that. Earlier this week, NY Times reporter Philip Galanes sat down for lunch with the former president and author Jacqueline Woodson to discuss issues of race and religion, including the confederate flag, black-white relations and same-sex marriage. Galanes pointed out that both Carter and Woodson went “door to door” as Christian missionaries when they were younger. Woodson went as a Jehovah’s Witness, but no longer practices. Galanes understood. “They’re not so hot on gay and lesbian issues,” he... continue reading
You know the climate change-obsessed liberals who claim every weather phenomenon proves them right? Hurricanes, blizzards, cold-snaps – no matter how counterfactual, they all prop up the global warming narrative. Well the climate change Chicken Littles aren’t the only lefties given to such magical thinking. Take Slate writer Amanda Marcotte (please!). Marcotte claimed this week that a drop in the number of teens having sex is the result of encouraging teens to use birth control and engage in sexual behavior. Meanwhile, she posited, education encouraging abstinence couldn’t possibly, ever, in a zillion years, have anything to do with it. Her... continue reading
In a Huffington Post article , Janson Wu, executive director of Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD), wrote, “One of the fundamental reasons why people are prejudiced against gay people is because they are uncomfortable with the idea of two people of the same sex having sex.” (Ya think?) How do we reform this? By normalizing gay sex and sharing it with children, of course. Wu explained the problem that any gay-marriage opponent has: “Even something as simple as two men holding hands creates discomfort for 47 percent of Americans, as a recent poll has shown. And clearly, sex... continue reading
Liberal NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio recently called for a regulatory attack on ride-sharing company Uber . This set off actor Ashton Kutcher who criticized the mayor’s proposals on Twitter and Facebook calling this an example of “corrupt shortsighted politics” “destroying innovation.” In July 2015, de Blasio began blaming Manhattan’s traffic congestion on Uber’s dramatic expansion over the last several years. He proposed several solutions, including capping the number of Uber vehicles allowed to operate within the city, in a July 18 op-ed in The New York Daily News. But tightly controlled cab industry includes some of de Blasio’s most... continue reading
Singer Mariah Carey showed off her “shoe room” in a recent Instagram post, proving her status as a member of the 1 percent. Her use of social media to show off her shoe collection, which is so large it has its own room, highlighted the irony of her political support for left-wing crusaders for the 99 percent, including, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Carey’s boasting about her massive shoe collection runs contrary to’s call for “direct action” in April 2012 to “stand with the 99 percent” during its “ 99 Percent Spring ” project. But apparently Carey... continue reading
Acts of terror marked the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Terrorists cut a bloody path from Tennessee to Tunisia -- one that commanded much of the broadcast network’s attention. Only newscasts often ignored the religious timing of the threats by Muslim terrorists. The Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which declared a Middle East “caliphate” a year ago on June 29, 2014, strongly encouraged violence during the Muslim holy month. Reuters and The Telegraph (UK) reported on June 23, that an ISIS spokesman called for Muslims to make Ramadan “a month of calamity for the infidels.” The “infidels” include non-Muslims and westerners,... continue reading
Good news, America! You no longer have to pay Garrison Keillor to sneer at you. After his 30-city “America the Beautiful” tour, Prairie Home Companion radio host Garrison Keillor is retiring for good (and good riddance). His tour should have been called “America the Liberal.” Keillor is a malicious parasite who spent his career soaking up federal funding through NPR while wrapping his off-the-shelf anti-American leftism in a cloying Midwestern folksiness. So, if you’re not one of Keiller’s 4 million listeners worldwide, count yourself lucky, and enjoy these top five ridiculous quotes from the man himself. In 2012, Keillor mocked... continue reading
