Breaking the Back of America

22 November, 2009

Conservatives are the backbone of America.  Their respect for the Constitution of the United States, their respect for the laws of America, their respect for the President of the United States of America (whether they agree with his political views or not), their battles for equal rights for all humans, and their Christian ethics, including a sense of love and respect for all life are the epitome of exemplars of good old fashioned Americanism to which we should all aspire.

Another Doctor in the Sights of Operation Rescue

29 June, 2009

On May 31st, the warnings of the Department of Homeland Security  regarding the possibility of increased activity by far-right extremist groups, including religious and nativist ones.  Dr. Tiller, one of the few doctors in the country willing to defy the repeated threats and attacks by Christian extremists and provide a necessary  procedure, was murdered by a 51-year-old zealot.  Despite repeated denials by members of Operation Rescue, many links were found between this right-wing terrorist and the Kansas leadership of OR.

Federal Investigation Begins into the Murder of Dr. Tiller

5 June, 2009

You Can’t Make This Shit Up: Gun at Church?

4 June, 2009

Some Americans, mostly of the severe right-wing Christianist godbot dominionist peruasion, seem to overlook some of the supposed teachings of the (probably fictional) Christ.  Things like pacifism, meekness, helping the poor, helping the weak — basically the left-wing progressive Jesus.  Courtesy of Teabagging for Jesus  (which, if you haven’t visited, is a great blog), we are reminded that not all Christians are into the meek and mild.  Some are into just plain firepower.

The Culture of “Life” Strikes Again: The Murder of Dr. George Tiller

31 May, 2009

Back in April, the Department of Homeland Security warned that right wing extremist and terrorist groups may take advantage of the worsening economy and the election of an African-American President would increase both the number of hate groups and increase the number of people involved in such groups.  Of course, the reaction of the media right was measured and moderate.  Well, not really — many accused the Obama Administration of orchestrating a hit job on real Americans.  After all, no Christian American would ever become a terrorist, right?  No politically conservative veteran would ever become involved in an extremist act, right?  Conservatives and Christians value life (even if it means the death of a mother).

Today, the sick neo-conservative Christian culture of ‘life’ struck again.  Read the rest of this entry ?
