While sitting down with Alex Jones of InfoWars today, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah defended Cliven Bundy but chastised Donald Sterling for his racist remarks. Farah explained that unlike Bundy, Sterling is definitely a racist because he’s a “lifelong Democrat” and a “big time Democrat.” Jones asked, “What would have happened if the owner of the Clippers had been a Republican?”  Unfortunately for Farah and Jones, along with the other conservative activists who picked up this insanely dumb line of argument, Sterling has actually been a...

While speaking at the NRA Convention last weekend, Sarah Palin said that if she was president, waterboarding would be "how we baptize terrorists." Predictably, Bryan Fischer came to her defense on his radio show today, saying that Palin was just being "cute" and "clever and funny," mainly because "waterboarding it not torture." Bizarrely, Fischer insisted that waterboarding is nothing like pulling out fingernails or shocking people with a car battery precisely because people are willing to undergo waterboarding in order to demonstrate that it is torture...

InfoWars host Alex Jones may be feuding with Glenn Beck, but he appears to be emulating the former Fox News pundit’s drift into televangelism. Jones spoke today with WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah and the two agreed that the United States is experiencing God’s wrath. “We have become a decadent, wicked country and we’re going to be judged,” Jones said. Farah interjected that “this is judgment, what we’re experiencing now is judgment.” Later, Jones added that “the judgment’s only beginning though, I have a real feeling of dread in... MORE

On the radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts spent a segment attacking politicians who are now announcing their support for gay marriage after having publicly opposed it just a few years ago. Saying that if the issue really is "the civil rights issue of our day," politicians should have been willing to stand on principle for it when the issue was unpopular instead of opposing it then only to endorse it now that polls show growing public support. Among the targets of Beck's ire is Hillary Clinton, whom he declared would soon announce that she is a lesbian if it will... MORE

In a radio interview on Friday, Creation Museum founder Ken Ham attacked evolution as a “religion” that has “brainwashed” its adherents into thinking that they are observing a scientific theory. Ham, a Young Earth Creationist, criticized Christians who believe in evolution by touching on the Creationist talking point that the Bible is the only eyewitness account of the history of the world. “A lot of these Christian leaders, when they say the word ‘day’ [in Genesis] can’t mean an ordinary day because of science, it’s not observational...

From the very beginning of the standoff, Alan Keyes has been a vocal supporter of Cliven Bundy and his anti-government allies and he has not backed away one bit even after revelations that Bundy is an unmitigated racist.  In fact, Keyes is actually defending Bundy, saying that he is not at all racist because it is an undisputed fact that black people are worse off now than they ever were during slavery. While speaking with radio host Peter Boyles, Keyes said that Bundy's remarks were not racist because Bundy "simply spoke about what he observed" happening to black families... MORE

Beset by legal troubles, former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell has joined Liberty University as a visiting professor in government. In a press release yesterday, Liberty president Jerry Falwell Jr. (son of the school’s founder, televangelist Jerry Falwell) praises McDonnell’s conservative bona fides and welcomes him to Liberty University’s Jesse Helms School of Government — yes, that Jesse Helms. McDonnell, a longtime friend of the university, said he is delighted to contribute to Liberty’s world-class academic programs and to train students to make a... MORE

Larry Klayman, who fears that the “black-Muslim” President Obama is triggering a race war, said in a column yesterday that anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy can’t possibly be a racist because Bundy didn’t come across as a racist during a conversation he had with Klayman last week. “From my interaction with Cliven, it became clear to me that he is a person who speaks what is in his mind and is not a racist, and that, being a rancher in a remote area of Nevada, never was exposed to the political correctness of the city slickers in Las Vegas for instance,”...

Former Army general Paul Vallely, who recently worked with former GOP congressman Allen West on the Citizens Commission on Benghazi, claimed in a radio interview with Dave Janda earlier this month that President Obama is a Muslim and a supporter of Al Qaeda. “Egypt came out and said basically they know Obama is a Muslim,” Vallely said. “Beyond that, just being a Muslim, being a Al Qaeda and a radical Islamist supporter.” Vallely previously said he would help lead an anti-Obama “revolution” (he later denied making the remarks that were captured on tape) and...

This weekend, Matt Barber’s BarbWire published a column by former Indiana lawmaker Don Boys, who recounted his attempt to recriminalize sodomy: The committee hearing room at the Indiana Capitol Building was packed, mostly with the media and opponents to my bill to reinstate sodomy as a crime, as it had been in Indiana for about a hundred years. My opponents all had their allotted time to oppose my bill, and one was a professor at Indiana University. He said that homosexuals “only wanted to be left alone.” I laughed. In defense of my bill I told him that sodomy should be... MORE
