75% of Them Think the Insurrection Was a Picnic: ESPN’s Jalen Rose Slams Conservatives Who Attacked Simone Biles

When Simone Biles announced that she would be pulling out of some Olympic events, Conservatives predictably went nuts. Piers Morgan, Clay Travis and Charlie Kirk were among the names slamming the 24 year-old gymnastics superstar.  Former basketball star Jalen Rose, though, wanted to give his take from an athlete’s perspective. And he was quick to…


Candace Owens Becomes the Latest Conservative to Reference Nazis When Talking About How Republicans Are Treated

Republicans today have a proclivity for unashamedly comparing anything that inconveniences them to Nazi Germany. The most obvious example of this phenomenon is Marjorie Taylor Greene. The Georgia congressman likened COVID-19 restrictions to the treatment of German Jews in the 1930’s. When she had the opportunity to walk her comments back, she doubled down. Eventually…


National Review Editors Lash Out at Trump’s “Un-American” Election Delay

One of the country’s most prominent conservative magazines has joined the chorus of criticism after Donald Trump suggested delaying the November elections. The National Review is perhaps the single most prestigious conservative news outlet, founded by William F. Buckley, an icon of the modern American right. NR’s editors took the President to task on Thursday for what…

Debunking the Conservative Myth of American Exceptionalism

Many Republicans and Tea Party groups are of the misguided opinion that America has the right to do whatever it chooses in the world and that the choices it does make are perfect. Although America is a great country and one of the world’s super-powers, it does not always make the right decisions and is not exceptional. The phrase “American exceptionalism” is thrown around continuously by conservatives who believe that America is without fault, and it leads to discriminatory policies abroad and here at home. There are myriad reasons why America is not exceptional, and it boils down to one problem; conservatives.


In the name of Reagan: The Conservative War On The Working Class

Republicans lionize Ronald Reagan, and in the older, white population, the dead president is a god who deserves to have his head on Mt. Rushmore. Sarah Palin channels Reagan and her supporters speak of her as being the new Ronald Reagan. It is typical of conservatives to worship a president who hurt the economy, set labor relations and unions back 40 years, and caused untold damage to the environment by destroying regulations. Republicans still think of Reagan as the gun slinging cowboy who rode in and cleaned up the frontier, or the war hero who single handedly stormed up a hill and took out a battalion of Nazis. Regardless the image old white people have of Reagan; he was just an actor, and a bad president whose policies were controlled by banks and corporations


Democrats Arrogantly Overestimated the Intelligence of the American Voter

The loss of the House of Representatives by Democrats this election will be analyzed to death, and there is certainly enough blame to go around regardless which group is critiqued. A great portion of the blame can be attributed to corporate infusion of cash to Republican and Tea Party candidates. However, Democrats and President Obama must accept that they too, own their fair share of blame for overestimating the intelligence of the American voter.


Supreme Conspiracy: How The Koch Brothers and Clarence Thomas Overthrew Democracy

In developing countries and dictatorships it’s not unusual or unexpected for the judicial system to be corrupt and biased. In America, it used to be a source of pride that our judicial system was fair and followed the letter of the law. Apparently, those days are gone and we are seeing the result of biased court decisions in this election cycle with unprecedented corporate donations to Republican candidates.

Sarah Palin is ignorant of basic American history

Sarah Palin’s Legacy of Ignorance

Former part-time Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has repeatedly demonstrated her lack of knowledge about…well, almost everything, really. If there is an antidote to the European Enlightenment, which threw back the darkness of the Middle Ages and gave birth to the United States of America, it is Sarah Palin. She is to knowledge what kryptonite is to Superman. She is anti-knowledge.
