Christian Values

Either Christians are morally repugnant, vile, vicious, corrupt, and evil; or Christian conservatives are not Christian at all.

Stop Talking About Zina Bash, but Also Stop Defending Her

A favorite tactic of the Alt-Right is to get a reaction from the left, then play innocent and say liberals are crazy and reactionary. Whatever Bash is up to, liberals and media are playing into this tactic. But stop saying she can’t be a racist because she is of Jewish and Mexican ancestry. Her professional history shows that she is willing to betray and hurt people of her heritage, as well as damage women’s rights.

John McCain Dies at 81

He was not the political hero that some liberals made him out to be just for opposing Trump, but he was a rare Republican who sometime put his conscience above party, he was a real war hero, and sometimes he was a bit of a rebel. Rest in peace, John.

Dem Rep: Trump team has ‘pattern of forgetting’ about contacts with Russia

Of course. To the corrupt billionaires that are and fund the Trump administration and other major Republicans (and some Democrats), countries no longer matter. Putin and Russian oligarchs are just other members in the corrupt billionaires club, manipulating the world to a new feudalism where the rich are above the laws, and little things like constitutions, rights, and the rule of law are not an issue.

Out of Control on Contraception

An excellent article and a great picture, but it misses a key point: the illogical combination of being anti-abortion and anti-contraception is not merely to domain of religious extremists. It is also part of the broader conservative ideology because it is about controlling female sexuality.

Many of the plans that will now be able to drop birth control from their coverage will cover Viagra. A huge portion of conservatives, while objectifying women and justifying rape, still want to shame and punish women for having sex with partners of their choosing. This is not about protecting babies, it is about attacking women


The Lies about Antifa

Antifa – a contraction of “anti-fascist” – is consistently and unfairly equated with the violent racists they fight. Conservatives are regularly call Antifa “fascist”. The ironic comparison is ludicrous and manipulative.

Why are They Making Excuses for Nazis

If Inglorious Bastards or Django Unchained were released today, there would be a wave of alt-right apologists complaining the films were offensive to Nazis and white supremacists. Fox News would echo them. Trump would join in on Twitter. Conservatives would start standing up for the poor mistreated Nazis.

When did these Nazis and slavers become anything other than something to fight and disdain? We fought wars to defeat each of them. We won. We were proud. We fought them because they were the enemies of freedom, and because they hurt and killed innocent people. Nothing has changed. Nazis and wannabe-Confederates should be opposed at every turn. It is not a liberal or conservative issue. It is not a fight between Nazis and the imagined alt-left. It is a conflict Nazis and everyone else.

Terms: The Alt-Left

There is no "alt-left'. The term is a fabrication of conservatives to make alt-right Nazi extremists more palatable, by inventing an imaginary group of equivalent extremists on the left.

Call it what it is - fascism

I support the freedom of speech, even of neo-Nazis, but this isn't about freedom of speech, it is about intimidation and inciting riots, and these people are not some tame sounding "alternative right", they are fucking white supremacists and fascists.
