When it comes time to make Whitey into lampshades, there will be no shortage of white volunteers to man the guard towers at the concentration camps. It will be whites who oversee the whole operation. Liberalism works by manipulating the weak-minded through self-hatred.
—Gee, why do people think they're racist?[1]

Moonbattery.com is a blog that alleges that it's keeping an eye on the American far-left. In reality, it's up there as one of the most despicable and horrifying sites in the wingnutsphere:

  • Showing sympathy for white supremacist conspiracy theories and racist views, such as giving shout-outs to the race war conspiracy theorists,[5] claiming that liberals are trying to get African-Americans to kill white people, wondering why people continue to "persecute" George Zimmerman and declaring "The welfare state produces Trayvon Martins by the millions" (though this doesn't keep them from admiring black conservatives). They call Trayvon Martin "Saint Skittles" and their support of George Zimmerman goes beyond simply thinking he should be acquitted and right into borderline hero worship. Pointing out their racist dog whistles is just political correctness gone mad in their eyes.[6] [7] Their post on "Ghetto Booty" drops the subtlety in favor of more overt racism.[8]

You get the idea — it's another manifestation of the wingnut persecution complex. The irony that they are much further from the political center than many of the people they call "moonbats" and "far-left" seems to elude them.

The site is owned by Dave Blount, who is so insane that his extreme right screeds occasionally pop up on FSTDT.

Interestingly, if you check out Moonbattery on a few site tracking websites, you'll see that South Africa has its second largest viewership after the United States.
