Misinformation Works; Dangerously So

Yes; misinformation works. Places like Fox News excel at it. Nutjobs like Pam Geller and her ilk have been very successful at promoting fear of anything associated with Islam. They achieve this by simply lying, and playing into the xenophobia already present in many members of the far-right-wing. I follow someone on Twitter named Joe …

A Mad Rush

It’s not the rush you’d expect. This one happens to be Erik Rush, and I refer to him as mad not because he’s angry, but because he seems to be rather mentally unhinged. My story begins with a blog post by Ed Brayton. Ed’s post is “Rush: The Commies are Coming, Led by Obama!” The …

Chris Rodda Debunks David Barton’s Jefferson Lies

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqMIOc7afZ0&list=PL5CFC7050BA485613&feature=plpp_play_all

David Barton, the über-right-wing’s darling ‘historian’ is a liar. What’s worse is that he’s a liar for Jesus. He and his ilk will stop at nothing to rewrite the history of our nation to reflect their own ideas about the way things should have been. They long for a place and time that never existed. …

Can You Feel the Righteous Love?

I could probably write a blog post every day based solely on articles found on WorldNetDaily (or WingNutDaily, as it is often called). There are actually some very good reasons for why I don’t do that, though. I probably wouldn’t get much done because of the imminent facepalm involved with reading most content on WND. …

Help! Help! I’m being repressed!

It has recently come to my attention [by way of a post at Dispatches From the Culture Wars] that a group of Christians in the State of California feel that they need to codify their rights to evangelize and spread the gospel because those rights are in grave peril. They think that an amendment to …

The Sky Is Falling! Seeds! Buy Seeds!

This advertisement is being promoted by WorldNut Daily. Surprise, surprise. …in an economic meltdown, non-hybrid seeds could become more valuable than even silver and gold. I love the “graph” that purports to show the value of gold, silver, and “Nonhybrid Seeds.” It’s odd that there aren’t any numbers on that graph, isn’t it? I suppose …

Joe’s Grand Fantasy, Part One

You keep using that word...

I’ve written about Joe Cienkowski on a previous occasion. Some of you may already be familiar with Joe and his ideas about evolution and atheism. I’ve had brief exchanges with Joe on Twitter, and though we disagree, we keep things fairly cordial. Someone was kind enough to recently provide me with one of Joe’s self-published …
