I don’t know where anyone gets the idea that misogyny and sexism are core values of today’s conservative movement — except maybe from Breitbart “News,” where Milo Yiannopoulos levels a blast of pure crass hatred at the #HeForShe campaign that has to be seen to be believed: THE UN’S RISIBLE #HEFORSHE CAMPAIGN: POINTLESS SELF-FLAGELLATION FOR SEX-STARVED BETA MALES.
Some men will do literally anything to get laid. Witness the outpouring of support among sexually-frustrated dickless wonders for #HeForShe, an attempt by the United Nations to get men on board with feminism. This mission is necessary, in case you were wondering, because the shrieking harpies of the third-wave feminist movement have alienated most of their own sex with their bullying, lies and harassment.
So the boys have been called up in service of the man-haters, and, such is the diseased world in which we live, they have come charging down the corridor with their tails wagging, regurgitating platitudes about the “urgent need” to “address sexism and gender bias” in the hope of a smile or nod of appreciation from the sisterhood. Can anyone else spot what’s wrong with this picture?
That’s right. It’s a patronising, gendered, borderline sexist campaign that reduces men to cheerleaders for the fairer sex. What ever happened to equality? Reading the #HeForShe website, it’s clear: equity and fairness is no longer the mission. Bullying and bias are issues strictly and exclusively affecting “women and girls,” while the responsibility for policing society is of course up to all of us.
Go ahead and have a look at the HeForShe website, and see if Yiannopoulos’ description of it is even close to being fair. In fact, this whole piece is one of the most grotesque and disgusting articles I’ve seen yet at the hate site that Andrew built.
The entire right wing blogosphere is in a frenzy of anti-Muslim bigotry over this awful story out of Oklahoma: Suspect in Co-Worker’s Beheading Was Recently Released From Probation.
A 2010 booking photo of Alton Nolen from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office in Oklahoma.
A man suspected of beheading a woman he worked with and stabbing another was a convicted felon who had been released from probation this year, Oklahoma corrections officials confirmed Thursday.
Alton Nolen, 30, was released from probation in April, earlier than the original 2017 date, said Jerry Massie, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
Nolen has a string of convictions from 2011, including marijuana possession, escape from detention, assault and battery on a police officer and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, according to records from state corrections officials.
FBI and police in Moore, Okla., are investigating the incident, which occurred at about 4 p.m. Thursday at the Vaughan Foods plant, Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department told The Times on Friday. Nolen was shot during the attack and is hospitalized, according to authorities.
Why are the right wing blogs fear-mongering like rabid weasels over this? Because Nolen reportedly is a recent convert to Islam. That’s all it takes for them to label him a “Muslim terrorist” and start screeching about Muslims in general supporting terrorism.
But the story is sadly straightforward — Nolen was fired from his job, and angry about it. He had a long history of criminal behavior, including assault, and he took out his anger on his co-workers like many disgruntled former employees before him. Pointing at Islam as his motivation is nothing but sheer bigotry, especially coming from the crowd that invariably excuses gun violence as “mental illness” when it’s committed by a white person.
And by the way, here’s another detail from this story that seems to be omitted from the right wing’s shrieking fear frenzy:
According to the department’s database, Nolen had “Jesus Christ” tattooed across his chest…
Really? So would it be fair then for me to label this as an act of “Christian terrorism?”
Of course not. And that’s the point.
As an example of the right wing’s sheer bigoted craziness, hate-monger Jim Hoft, the Dumbest Man on the Internet, has posted about this story no fewer than seven times so far:

Right wing talk show screamer Mark Levin told the audience of religious fanatics at the Values Voter Summit this morning that they’re “centrists” — because there are loons even farther out than them.
Oh, but those Democrats? They’re all radical leftists!
“They treat us like we’re this fringe,” he said. “You know, I view the political spectrum quite differently. We’re in the middle! You’ve got the radical leftists who’ve taken over the Democratic Party. And then you’ve got this neo-Confederate group out there that really doesn’t believe in the Constitution and keeps talking about secession and so forth. We are traditional conservatives who embrace the Constitution and embrace our heritage and we need to stand up!”

The highlight of today’s crazy ranting at the Values Voter Summit: Sarah Palin, as part of her usual incoherent word salad, getting the address of the White House wrong. A classic in the annals of Palinisms.

Yes, it’s that time of the year again; the time when religious fanatics, creationists, fundamentalists, homophobic bigots and social conservatives with raging persecution complexes gather to share their psychoses at the right wing loonfest known as the Values Voter Summit.
Here’s a live feed from this insane event. As I write this, Kelly Shackelford is warning the audience that the government is turning into a totalitarian dictatorship that plans to strip them of religious freedom. It’s utterly delusional.

President Obama will be announcing at 4:30 pm Eastern time today that Attorney General Eric Holder is resigning.
Close friends said Holder had been exhausted by his job at times and had earlier considered leaving several times, especially last summer and fall, when he was facing pillorying from Hill Republicans over the department’s handling of the Fast and Furious gun program. But Holder was very reluctant to leave his Justice post at a low point, and he wanted to depart on his own terms.
Holder now announces his resignation after a series of successes in the past year, having received accolades from community activists for his leadership in investigating and responding to the police shooting of an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo. Holder has often spoken about race relations in blunter terms than the president.
While Holder has no immediate plans once he steps down, the Justice official said, he has spoken with friends and colleagues about establishing some sort of center or institute to continue his work on restoring trust between law enforcement and minority communities.
Here’s an NPR audio report:
And of course, right wing blogs are already in a frenzy of back-slapping and partying and gloating; if there’s one thing right wingers know how to do, it’s gloat.
The Dumbest Man on the Internet has weighed in with one of his typical grotesque race-baiting posts, complete with a picture of Holder from 1968: Breaking: Controversial Scandal-Plagued Attorney General Holder to Step Down | the Gateway Pundit.
And guess who wrote the ludicrous article Hoft cites, claiming Holder took part in an “armed takeover” of an ROTC office in 1968? None other than… Chuck C. Johnson.
Any day right wing smear merchant Chuck C. Johnson (who is NOT ME) gets so tweezed that he threatens to sue me has to count as a good day. Today I noticed that he was spewing a whole lot of obviously made-up talking points about Ferguson on Twitter, repeating his thoroughly discredited charges that Michael Brown had a juvenile criminal record. So I tweeted this:
There goes @ChuckCJohnson inventing more bullshit stories about Ferguson for attention.
And that was all it took to bring out the threats from this dishonest clown:
@Green_Footballs Keep libeling me and see how long you can go without me hitting you with a suit.
Ooh, scary. RT @ChuckCJohnson: Keep libeling me and see how long you can go without me hitting you with a suit.
“I'll sue you! See if I don't! You better shut up! Don't push your luck, pal!” — Talentless smear merchant
And when a reporter for Fox 2 in St. Louis also called out Chuck’s obviously false claims…
@KiekowLive I'm happy to have an on the record conversation with you but you have lied and said that I'm making stuff up. That's libelous.
So watch out, everyone. Chuck C. Johnson will jump out of the bushes and sue you if he doesn’t like what you say about him.
(Excuse me while I LMAO.)
The incredibly stupid right wing fake outrage now being called “#LatteSalute” is absolutely everywhere today; the entire Unison Parrots’ Chorus is screeching in tune about this idiocy. It’s the biggest brainless wingnut uproar since the dreaded Umbrellagate, and now even repellent old crocodile Pat Robertson is jumping on it, somehow turning it into a statement that Obama’s only ordering airstrikes against ISIS to “get a lot of brownie points before the election.”
These people are not well.

The worst aspect of 'typical familyism' (as media-merchandised) is that it glorifies involuntary homogenization.
