28Roosh declares that that the real way to stop rape is to legalize rape on private property. Then women won't put themselves into situations where they get raped! (Alternate link with commentary.)
upneutraldown
30Of course the earth doesn't move, otherwise you wouldn't need jet planes. CHECKMATE, HELIOCENTRISTS!
upneutraldown
23Anti-vaxxers: Stupid is as stupid does.
upneutraldown
29Science was wrong about eggs being bad for you, therefore we should harvest old-growth forests and ignore global warming. Bonus complaint about Pluto no longer being a planet!
upneutraldown
10This story about a Christian group that denies the existence of dinosaurs is the latest internet eye-roller about the willfully ignorant. However, since this "group" came out of nowhere, the woman posting the video seems to be the only face of the "group", and she doesn't give her name or provide any way to contact the "group", this story probably deserves one of these.(Warning: Poe's Law in action!)
upneutraldown
28Adults should not be drinking milk because if you were a completely different person, it might give you diarrhea.
upneutraldown
22Calling pseudoscience apologism "Much needed sanity" doesn't make it so, you pompous, consdescending ass.
upneutraldown
13Poe's Law in action, again. VICE author mistakes 8chan roleplaying thread as a genuine attempt to establish a neo-Nazi white-supremacist utopia in Namibia.
upneutraldown
28Roosh V pens a little story in which a fat, manjawed skeleton warrior gets a straight white male fired from his job over a Facebook post in which he brandishes a gun and threatens Mexicans, prompting him to track her down and kill her in revenge. No, seriously. His readers applaud.
upneutraldown
18The American Taliban Strikes Again. This time, they want to implement a new interpretation of Sharia law public indecency which includes the outline of the human body. Women might as well be wearing burqas, thanks to your lovely neighbourhood GOP. Update: the bill was killed before it ever got out of committee.
upneutraldown
31Please, in the name of Jebus, somebody tell me DIY fecal transplants aren't real!
upneutraldown
33In a move that surprises absolutely nobody, Rand Paul starts spewing anti-vaccine garbage too. Hey, there's votes in dead kids! He went full Bachmann. You never go full Bachmann.
upneutraldown
28American Stinker has some tips on how to make young people conservative. (Long story short, just make out Liberalism to be basically the same as communism. REDSREDSREDSREDSREDSREDS!!!!!!)

16Women who complain about a lack of women in the tech industry, are hypocrites, if they also aren't complaining about the lack of female boilermakers.

upneutraldown
24Bobby Jindal just took a new level in dumbass.

upneutraldown
26For the latest analysis on the SONA, we turn to Sandy Rios: "Obama used subliminal Islamic messages in his speech..."
upneutraldown
6Pax Dickinson was fired for gross, sustained offensiveness on the company dime. This has made it difficult for him to get venture capital. He writes on a neoreactionary blog asking that people check their non-asshole privilege and stop discriminating against people just expressing themselves. He is, of course, a libertarian.
upneutraldown
-11For when TempleOS just doesn't cut it: Cre@tion of civilization, the "Stolen Fire"... actually language. Modern Computing (an Oracle?) showing the light of the superuser, Periodic Table prescient knowledge, and/er the light of "soligion." Re-reading eX odus from Linux to right (before 9/11). In the past it was... Let there be light.

upneutraldown
68VIDEO: A QVC hostess and a fashion designer trying to sell his wares on the shopping channel get into a debate over whether the moon is a planet or a star. All hail science education in the age of renewed religious fundamentalism.

-25The Peach ingratiates herself to the Clogroll by using the recent Charlie Hebdo attacks to demonstrate that she doesn't quite understand how or why Hate speech laws work or exist, respectively.
upneutraldown
36Do you want to build a snowman? It doesn't have to be a snowman... 'cause it's a sin.
upneutraldown
68Fox News pundits strike again, telling their US audience that the English city of Birmingham is exclusively Muslim and is a no-go area for non-Muslims, and that Muslim religious police in parts of London use violence to enforce Islamic dress. The apology didn't take long. Update: Pundit claims his treatment was worse than being waterboarded.
upneutraldown
21David Icke has evidence that the Parisian policeman wasn't shot in the head. It's not clear who he thinks organised this piece of street theatre - the Illuminati, perhaps?
upneutraldown
33The supposed "token liberal" on Fox News' The Five compares supporting radical Islam to supporting interracial dating. Even the other hosts realized what a major gaffe he made.
upneutraldown
36"Hebdo consistently aimed to provoke Muslims." "[The shooting] was understandable." Victim blaming lines you'd expect to hear from religious right-wingers. Except... they weren't.
upneutraldown
30Roosh V's wannabe Gamergate site Reaxxion reposted content from The John Birch Society, with only the barest dash of find-replace.
upneutraldown
23In a truly breathtaking example of unintentional accuracy, George Will decries the "climate Cassandras" who claim that anthropogenic climate change is real.

upneutraldown
22Worried about all this giving malarkey? Peter Schwartz of the Ayn Rand Institute tells you how to celebrate Christmas the Objectivist way.
upneutraldown
27Yes, instead of noting that the NYPD shooting suspect had a long history of mental illness and the like, let's all blame it on the Ferguson/New York protests. Then we'll say there's a "war on cops" spread by Al Sharpton. Sheriff Joe, the Great American Sage!
upneutraldown
66Vox Day: If a woman says she was raped by a white man, she’s probably lying, because only blacks and hispanics rape. (HT Mammoth.)

18Given all of the police harassment and killing of numerous peaceful young black men it's time for American whites to step up and take a stand against the atrocities committed against ... white people? Yes this is a petition to stop immigration or something, oh and Anti-racist is code for anti-white.
upneutraldown
16Behind the Patina of Anita Sarkeesian, a.k.a.

28Never mind "Paul is dead", here is PROOF The Beatles (as they were presented to us) Never Existed.
upneutraldown
23Another reason never to take the Wall Street Journal seriously. In a cross-promotion piece with the new 20th Century Fox film Exodus: Gods and Kings, they do their damnedest to explain how Moses could have parted the Red Sea. BONUS: Rival Forbes calls the movie "god-awful".
upneutraldown
19NaturalNews on GMOs: Liar Neil deLiar-McLiarson is a LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR.

10Phyllis Schlafly and Alex Jones, sitting in a tree studio, K-I-S-S-I-N-G spinning bullshit about the POTUS.

19No, this is surprisingly not the first time the POTUS has been claimed to have Martian heritage.
upneutraldown
25Technically, it's a Poe as soon as you can't tell if it's a parody or not. (Vaccines. In chemtrails.)
