Yes, folks. To discuss the murder of journalist Steve Sotloff by ISIS, Sean Hannity interviews the lunatic leader of the Duck Dynasty clan.

This is so insane you won’t believe it.

Loony Bryan Fischer: Michelle Obama Should Start a ‘Fight Obesity, Go Straight’ Anti-Lesbian Campaign

Deranged hatred can be inadvertently funny

I haven’t done a post about religious loony Bryan Fischer in a while, because he’s so predictably hateful and dim-witted it gets boring, but this one made me laugh: Bryan Fischer Wants Michelle Obama to Start a ‘Fight Obesity, Go Straight’ Anti-Lesbian Campaign.

“I would suggest that if Michelle Obama really cares about obesity,” Fischer said, “she should be out there leading the charge against normalizing lesbianism. She should be at the head of a campaign to convince women not to get into lesbianism. Her slogan ought to be ‘Fight Obesity, Go Straight.’”

Apple Releases Statement on Celebrity Hacking: iCloud Was Not Breached

“A very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions”
Technology • Views: 6,515

Here’s the statement just released by Apple on the theft of celebrities’ photos from their iCloud accounts.

Apple Media Advisory

Update to Celebrity Photo Investigation

We wanted to provide an update to our investigation into the theft of photos of certain celebrities. When we learned of the theft, we were outraged and immediately mobilized Apple’s engineers to discover the source. Our customers’ privacy and security are of utmost importance to us. After more than 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet. None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple’s systems including iCloud(r) or Find my iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved.

To protect against this type of attack, we advise all users to always use a strong password and enable two-step verification. Both of these are addressed on our website at support.apple.com.

Blogger Chuck C. Johnson Hypes Ugly Anti-Gay Article at White Nationalist Website

The mask is off
Wingnuts • Views: 8,248

You may recall that National Review columnist John Derbyshire was fired from the magazine in 2012 when he published an absolutely horrible racist article at a website called Takimag.

Takimag is an overtly racist and often antisemitic publication, with a list of contributors that’s a who’s who of white nationalists and upper-class pseudo-intellectual bigots, including Pat Buchanan, the aforementioned John Derbyshire, “scientific racist” Steve Sailer, and another former National Review contributor who was also fired for links to white supremacists, Robert Weissberg. It’s a thoroughly disgusting place, made even more vile by a thin veneer of academic pretension over the ugly racism.

And today, far right blogger Chuck C. Johnson (who is NOT ME), the ranting demagogue who’s currently trying to get access to the sealed juvenile records of Michael Brown, made his motivations very clear by hyping the following homophobic article at Takimag.

The mask is all the way off now, folks. Bloggers like Johnson and Jim Hoft are openly linking to white nationalist websites, and not a single word of protest is heard from other conservatives.

UPDATE at 9/2/14 10:52:04 am by Charles Johnson

And now, right on cue, Chuck C. Johnson is denying Takimag is a racist publication — even though it could not possibly be any clearer.

A Good Piece at WaPo on the Relationship Between Michael Brown and Friend Dorian Johnson

“Wow, that’s a big dude”
US News • Views: 15,682

Here’s an interesting, well-researched article by Wesley Lowery and Darryl Fears on the relationship between Michael Brown and Dorian Johnson — the Friend Who Witnessed His Shooting.

Jim Hoft, Dumbest Man on the Internet, is ranting like a lunatic today about this article, so you know it has to be worth reading: AWFUL. WaPo Writer Wesley Lowery COMPLETELY Whitewashes #MikeBrown’s Filthy Rap Lyrics.

Hoft’s deranged racism is really on full display these days. As I’ve documented, in the past three weeks, Hoft has used white supremacist hate group the Council of Conservative Citizens as a source at least twice (and probably more without linking directly).

And this is no dishonest smear job, like Hoft has been trying to do to Michael Brown since he was gunned down in the street by officer Darren Wilson while running for his life. It’s a documented fact: Jim Hoft is openly using racist sources for his posts.

Jim Hoft Plagiarized a White Supremacist Hate Site for His Latest Race-Baiting Post

The Dumbest Man on the Internet adds plagiarism to his resumé
Wingnuts • Views: 24,141

In today’s episode of the Dumbest Man on the Internet, we find Jim Hoft, the Gateway Pundit, blatantly plagiarizing the website of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a white supremacist hate group that sprang out of the “White Citizens Councils” formed in the 1950s to fight against school desegregation in Southern states.

When I saw Hoft tweet the link to his post this morning, I had a hunch he might have lifted it from the CCC website without attribution, because he’s used them as sources before, and because this is their racist style. And sure enough, still on their front page, there was the evidence.

Here’s Hoft’s post; note the title: Cops Shoot 18 Year-Old Kansas Teen 16 Times - Media Ignores Story Because He’s White (Video) | the Gateway Pundit

First, the idea that the media “ignored the story because he’s white” is laughably easy to disprove; a Google News search for this poor teenager’s name shows that the media didn’t “ignore” it at all: Joseph Jennings Kansas.

Now, here’s a screenshot of Jim Hoft’s page, because he has a long-standing practice of editing and deleting things when he’s caught:

And here’s a screenshot of the Council of Conservative Citizens’ page (Google cache link); notice that Hoft lifted both videos and the photograph of Joseph Jennings, and Hoft’s title is very similar:

Although the title of Hoft’s post is not a direct copy of the white supremacists’ title, the caption for that photograph is nearly word-for-word plagiarism — he just changed “media doesn’t care” to “media ignores story:”

The white supremacist photo and caption:

Hoft’s photo and caption:

Busted again, Jim.

He dug up a week-old article at Raw Story and included it in his post, apparently to hide his real source, but that photo caption is irrefutably lifted straight from the CCC site. (By the way, what looks like a link to “KMBC” in Hoft’s caption is actually a broken link; it doesn’t lead to KMBC.)

And this is far from the first time Jim Hoft has gotten his stories from white supremacists; see:

Jim Hoft Links to White Supremacist Site to Smear Michael Brown
Racist Source on Conservative Blog: Coincidence or Custom? | Riverfront Times

This is the guy whose posts are often cited all over the right wing blogosphere, and often end up on Drudge Report and Fox News: an unregenerate racist who steals material from white supremacist sites, now without attribution — probably because he’s been caught posting links to them before.

Jim Hoft, Dumbest Man on the Internet, Also Most Hypocritical

Say “cheese”
Wingnuts • Views: 29,133

Remember when Jim Hoft, fabled Dumbest Man on the Internet, freaked out about a photograph of President Obama taking a “selfie” at Nelson Mandela’s memorial event, labeling Obama the “Narcissist-in-Chief?” And remember how this Obama-bashing meme instantly spread throughout the right wing blogs and made it all the way to Fox News?

AFP Photographer “Sad” to Make Obama Look Bad in “Selfie” Shot at Mandela Funeral | the Gateway Pundit

Well, first of all, this was not a “funeral;” it was a memorial service that included lots of performers and tributes from dignitaries. And it was not a solemn event in a church; it was more like a party, a joyous celebration of Mandela’s life. And for that matter, Jim Hoft was incredibly vicious and mean-spirited toward Nelson Mandela when he died, posting several rants like this one and this one.

But the point of this post: today the DMOTI tweeted this, demonstrating once again that boorish self-absorbed right wing hypocrisy for which he’s infamous — a lovely selfie that he took with a friend at a real funeral, in a church, wearing a polo shirt and a big un-self-conscious grin.

Say “cheese,” Jim.

(I’m posting a screenshot linked to his tweet instead of embedding it, because Hoft has a long-standing habit of trying to delete stuff like this when it gets noticed.)
