Sat, Jul 28, 2018 at 12:21:00 pm
I was suspended on Twitter a few days ago for calling a neo-Nazi Holocaust denier a nutjob. Here's how it happened. The guy was harassing people around and spreading Holocaust denial.

A Humiliated Trump Brags About Meaningless Internet Polls to Boost His Damaged Ego

Tue, Sep 27, 2016 at 10:28:56 am

Another Commie Plot?

Sun, Sep 16, 2012 at 5:44:31 pm

Thu, Jun 21, 2012 at 11:35:17 am
In a sort of delayed derp reaction, several wingnut bloggers are having conniptions today about my post on Ann Romney's dog-whistle comment about the Obamas' "overseas vacations," because I wrote that these right wing criticisms often contain a not very subtle sub-text of racism. The dumbest and nastiest one I've seen ...
