BREAKING EXCLUSIVE MUST CREDIT TWITCHY! The liberal-biased interwebs are putting conservatives in Twitter jail, maybe (or maybe not) but probably (but probably not), just for being conservatives, OH NOES!
Michelle Malkin, conservative keyboard-banging hero and founder of the the site with NINE PAID STAFFERS (or, ugh, maybe even more by now) who collect random tweets, mostly by Pat Sajak, and call it “the news wire of the 21st century,” is on to you, Twitter!
All of these are based on actual proposals and incidents…
Do you support the laws in Arkansas and Arizona that require doctors to inform women that drug-induced abortions can be “reversed” mid-procedure even though this is not supported by scientific evidence?
Do you believe evolution is just a theory and support those lawsuits like the one in Kansas that argue teaching evolution in schools functions as an endorsement of atheism?
Do you support the order Florida Department of Environmental Protection officials received to not use the term “climate change” or “global warming” in any official communications, e-mails or reports?
Would you have used state funds to oppose Michael Schiavo’s, Terri Schiavo’s husband, wishes that his wife be removed from life support?
Do you think pizza places should be able to deny their product to gay couples who want to have pizza at their weddings?
Do you support the Oklahoma bill that proposes to ban Advanced Placement U.S. History in public schools because it is unpatriotic in teaching our nation’s not-so finest moments?
Do you think your state deserves to be first to name the Bible its official state book as bills introduced in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Tennessee propose?
If answer yes to:
0: might be sane
2-4: very nutty
5-6: really nutty
7: living with the squirrels
Get a load of this guys! Doktor Zoom reports the only way Wonkette can,
As if you needed any further proof that there are extremists on both side of the abortion issue, consider the recent heinous attack launched on the anti-abortion website “LifeNews,” which was hit last week with a full-scale assault of glitter mailed in a letter. But it was threatening terrorist glitter, and proof that Both Sides Do It, although one side has been a bit more partial to firebombing clinics and shooting doctors, nurses, and receptionists dead.
The reaction from LifeNews was swift: They sent out a fundraising email Saturday with the subject heading “URGENT! Our office was bombed, we need your help!”
The fundraising letter explained that LifeNews has been targeted by multiple glitter bombings from a group calling itself “Glitter Bombs For Choice,” and detailed the devastating toll that the relentless attacks have taken:
Over the last few weeks, abortion activists have sent several glitter bomb letters to LifeNews, some with threatening messages. When our staff open the letters, glitter poured inside goes everywhere and makes a huge mess.
Yes because Christians “never” support gay rights, or support the right to an abortion. Also I’m not sure what ISIS’s stance on abortion is, exactly, but they’re hardly in favor of gay rights.
I wonder what the “best friend” of the LGBT community, Pamela Geller thinks of this. Jackson has basically just come out and said that Obama’s support for gay rights, means that he must be a Muslim Jihadist out to destroy America.
Oh and of course Taqiyya is “Lying for Islam,” even through it is actually not “lying for Islam” at all. Its basically lying to protect yourself from persecution.
There are moderate Muslims, ( for lack of a better word ), who oppose the extremists, just as there are moderate Christians who oppose the religious right’s anti secularism, anti gay, anti Muslim, anti American agenda. Let’s just ignore Muslims who condemn ISIS, and support freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
What’s more Jackson is so homophobic, anti choice, and so closed minded, that she fails to see how anyone could share her faith and disagree with her on those things. She also thinks Obama can’t be a Christian because he disagrees with her politically, and must therefor be an ally of ISIS. Fanatical Muslims belonging to groups like ISIS, the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and the government of Saudi Arabia, probably wouldn’t even consider Obama a “true Muslim” anyway, even if he was one, since he openly supports things like gay rights, not mention women’s rights, and freedom of religion. The American religious right, that she supports has far more in common with Islamic extremists than Obama. Way to show the world, how “educated,” “logical,” and “enlightened” you are, Ms Jackson.
Here we go again.
These people are not only not well, they are brainwashed. There is no other way to account for such dangerously brazen stupidity, and hatred.
And I will rise again to my soapbox to say that when sensible people (Democrats or otherwise), stay home during midterms, nutcases like Brian Kurcaba get elected across the country, as happened in 1994, 2010, and 2014.
The Republican Party may be irrelevant as a national party, in terms of their ability to win the White House, but as long as they continue to dominate state and local elections, as they did this last time, they are no less troubling.
The West Virginia House of Delegates began moving a bill Thursday to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The bill is very similar to one that was passed last year, only to be vetoed by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin.
The bill is one of 11 introduced so far this legislative session that seek to restrict women’s access to abortion.
A similar bill passed both houses of the Legislature last year with overwhelming bipartisan support but was vetoed by Tomblin, who said he had been advised that it was unconstitutional.
The House Health Committee held a public hearing on the bill before discussing it and ultimately passing it 20-5.
The public hearing had 25 speakers against the bill and 8 speaking in favor, although neither side seemed likely to change the other’s mind.
This year’s bill (HB2568) would ban abortions that occur more than 22 weeks after the woman’s last menstrual period. While that is a change in language from last year’s bill, it does not seem to be a change in practice, as the bill defines that time as “generally consistent with the time that is twenty weeks after fertilization.”
The bill contains some exceptions for medical emergencies or non-viable fetuses.
In medical emergencies the bill says, somewhat quizzically, that “an abortion …shall terminate the pregnancy in the manner which, in reasonable medical judgment, provides the best opportunity for the fetus to survive.”
An amendment from three Democratic delegates that would have added an exception for cases of rape or incest failed, largely along party lines.
“Obviously rape is awful …” said Delegate Brian Kurcaba, R-Monongalia. “What is beautiful is the child that could come from this.”
In all seriousness, who the fuck SAYS THIS KIND OF SHIT???

I hope and pray that we can find a way to deal with the current conflict about definitions. And if we do not, then shame on us all, because this is the debate we’re having. We will win if we can focus on the baby, and 20 weeks, and is America in the right spot on this issue. I’m going to to do more than bring my bill up. I’m going to need your help to find a way out of this definitional problem of rape.
The rape exception will be part of the bill - that’s the Hyde position - we just need to find a way, definitionally, to not get us in a spot where we’re debating about what a legitimate rape is…We’re not here debating legitimate rapes, we’re here talking about saving babies at 20 weeks.
I’ve got to tell our local “Feminazi” @geegeetee about this!
How does this play out? Based on the belief that he had an obligation to give a fetus a chance for life, a judge in Washington, D.C., ordered a critically ill 27-year-old woman who was 26 weeks pregnant to undergo a cesarean section, which he understood might kill her. Neither the woman nor her baby survived.
There are a bunch of horror stories like this of women with absolutely no intention of aborting their pregnancy being arrested/detained/forced to give birth via cesarean. All in the name of personhood.
These are not isolated or rare cases. Last year, we published a peer-reviewed study documenting 413 arrests or equivalent actions depriving pregnant women of their physical liberty during the 32 years between 1973, when Roe v. Wade was decided, and 2005. In a majority of these cases, women who had no intention of ending a pregnancy went to term and gave birth to a healthy baby. This includes the many cases where the pregnant woman was alleged to have used some amount of alcohol or a criminalized drug.
Since 2005, we have identified an additional 380 cases, with more arrests occurring every week. This significant increase coincides with what the Guttmacher Institute describes as a “seismic shift” in the number of states with laws hostile to abortion rights.
I wanted to write about something else before this, but this post by Doktor Zoom was about something too sick to ignore. I really felt the need to get it out there, just how disgusting this person is. I might have written something on this myself instead of pointing out to you what Doktor Zoom has wrote, but I’m kind of in a hurry and I don’t think I could have done a much better job than he did.
Former executive director of the South Carolina GOP, Trayvon Martin clairvoyant, ethics-free attorney, and avid penis self-photographer Todd Kincannon is proudly pro-life — with one exception, of course, in that he wishes Wendy Davis had been aborted. But he also recognizes that sometimes, in the face of a serious health crisis, you just need to man up and kill everyone who’s been infected or exposed. At Wonkette, we are sometimes given to exaggeration. But this is not an exaggeration: in a series of tweets on Saturday, Todd Kincannon, not satisfied with rightwing prescriptions like travel bans or embargoes on affected nations, literally advocated killing all Ebola patients, and napalming their villages for good measure, too. And we mean literally literally, not Joe Biden literally:
