Pointing out the obvious won’t get you far in American politics. The blatant colonization and brutalization of Palestine by Israel is no different. So why is Obama ignoring it?
Coulter is fast running out of tricks and her rapidly declining book sales is a strong indication that her reign of terror on the U.S. media is coming to an end. Here’s the only way she can remain relevant, and it’s pretty extreme even by her standards.
Rupert Murdoch thinks we are overreacting to climate change, and it isn’t really that big of a deal. He also has a simple solution that scientists haven’t thought of yet. What a guy!
Regardless of who started the latest mini-war, it makes little difference when looking at the larger picture. The fact remains that Palestinians are being collectively punished for the actions of Hamas, and Israel is committing a serious war crime in Gaza.
The Mail has a storied history of supporting Nazis, attacking transgendered people, and going after the poor, so it’s not exactly shocking they lied about Clooney’s fiancée, then lied again about lying about it.
Rick Perry and Sean Hannity, renown for being serious tough guys, showed America just how tough they were by hanging out with the Texas Highway Patrol on the Rio Grande yesterday, and posing with some very large guns.
“As a resident of the south side, I’m living with this daily. Just this morning, a mother of five was shot and killed on the inbound Dan Ryan Expressway. She is the second to die by gunfire in her family; her younger brother was killed just under a year ago.”
During the (roughly) 31 years of conflict in Northern Ireland, a total of 3,568 people died as a result of the violence between Unionists, Republicans and the British military. In Chicago, over 5,398 people have lost their lives in the past 10 years.
Witness Joe Rogan’s thorough demolishment of an uninformed, angry anti hunting activist who took the time out of his day to call Rogan a ‘pathetic cave worm’ and a ‘shit’ because he goes hunting.
While it would be nice to believe that Anthony Cumia’s views are not representative of the average American, a quick browse through the comments section of Glenn Beck’s ever expanding website ‘The Blaze’ reveals Cumia is far from alone when it comes to hating black people, and by extension, the President.
Leave it to George Takei, man of Facebook and Star Trek icon to sum up the astonishing Supreme Court decision that ruled corporations get to make health care decisions for women.
The truth is, no one really gives a shit what Coulter says about anything these days as her schtick is about as original as Britney Spear’s latest album. Most major outlets don’t pay her any attention as her toxic brand of xenophobia and liberal baiting stopped being amusing at least half a decade ago.
Esquire’s Charles Pierce thinks Glenn Greenwald held his own against US veteran Paul Reickhoff on the issue of Edward Snowden and the NSA leaks. He didn’t, but not for the reasons Pierce thinks.
