And The Teabagistan Civil War Rages On

Teabagistan’s long-raging civil war gained fresh fuel last week when 22 high-profile right wingers wrote anti-Trump essays for the conservative standard-bearer National Review. Today’s poutrage target on Breitbart is a new National Review column which essentially alleges that Trump’s supporters are uncultured semi-literate hillbillies. Ahem. From the column: Thomas Aquinas cautioned against “homo unius libri,” a warning that would not ...

RNC Fires National Review From GOP Debate Sponsorship Over Its Anti-Donald Trump Issue

The Washington Post reports: The Republican National Committee has ended a debate partnership with National Review after the venerable conservative magazine devoted its new issue to a “symposium” of reasons why voters should reject Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. “We expected this was coming,” the magazine’s publisher Jack Fowler wrote in a blog post late Thursday night, just 90 minutes after ...

Maggie Gallagher Slams “Shamefully Silent” Donald Trump Over Jailing Of Kim Davis

“Kim Davis is showing us what conscience looks like. After all, getting in front of a slavishly approving media à la Ferguson does not confer moral significance on one’s willingness to break the civil law for a higher law. What makes civil disobedience noble is a willingness to sacrifice, if necessary, rather than submit to the civil law. But is ...

National Review Has Notorious RBG Sadz: She Totally Destroys The Rule Of Law

Check out this closing paragraph: “The Notorious R.B.G.” is not the beneficiary of a grand expansion of imagination, a leap to a higher plane of Being. She is the result of an ideology of womanhood that has been militantly enforced on American politics and culture over the past half-century, not by latter-day Susan B. Anthonys but by knockoff Betty Friedans. ...

Maggie Gallagher Vs Frank Bruni

“This week, Frank Bruni, fresh from asserting with approval that Mitchell Gold wants to make Christians take homosexuality off their sin list, decides to attack the Catholic Church for committing the primal sin of patriarchy. ‘Catholicism Undervalues Women.’ The pope is always a man! Listen, I get that growing up gay in the South was no picnic. I get that ...

National Review Attacks “Self-Deluded” Frank Bruni On Religious Liberty Column

“Frank Bruni writes that many Americans wrongly treat him as a threat to religious liberty because he is gay. The trouble is that he is a threat to religious liberty. It’s not because he’s gay. It’s because he is one of those contemporary liberals who has a conception of religious liberty that is illiberal and narrow, especially compared to the ...

National Review Slams Ben Carson For Hawking Quack Cures For Everything

The right-wing National Review today slammed potential 2016 presidential candidate and Tea Party darling Ben Carson for hawking a line of so-called “glyconutrients” whose maker claims will cure cancer, heart disease, autism, and pretty much everything else. In 2007, three years after Carson’s first dealings with Mannatech, Texas attorney general Greg Abbott sued the company and Caster, charging them with ...

Quote Of The Day – Hadley Arkes

“In the aftermath of the decision in the Sixth Circuit, some have been inhaling the heady fumes arising from Judge Sutton’s dramatic break, and they seem earnestly to be cultivating the hope that Justice Kennedy might indeed be cajoled and persuaded. But we would waste the gift that Judge Sutton gave us if we diverted ourselves at this moment with ...

Maggie Gallagher Has The Vatican Sadz

“I hope to respond intellectually to the synod report. Tears right now are streaming from my face, and it is not about objections to welcoming gay people. There is something more profoundly at stake for me. Is this me? In the corner?” – Maggie Gallagher, writing for the National Review. Her link goes to REM’s Losing My Religion, which commenters ...

National Review Writer Kevin Williamson: Hang Women Who Have Abortions

After Twitter users questioned whether he was serious, Williamson responded, “Yes, I believe that the law should treat abortion like any other homicide.” I last reported on this fuckweasel when the National Review published his vicious attack on transgender Americans. UPDATE: Williamson has won a Twitter honor. #AssholeOfTheDay: Kevin D. Williamson is “pro-life” except when it comes to punishing women ...

National Review Attacks Trans People

“Regardless of the question of whether he has had his genitals amputated, [Laverne] Cox is not a woman, but an effigy of a woman. Sex is a biological reality, and it is not subordinate to subjective impressions, no matter how intense those impressions are, how sincerely they are held, or how painful they make facing the biological facts of life. ...

Editorial Of The Day

From the editorial board at the National Review: GOProud is the most conservative gay group of note (perhaps the only gay group rightly called conservative), and that conservatism extends to its circumspection about many planks of the so-called gay-rights agenda. Its participation in past CPACs caused only mild disquiet (indeed, much of the scattered criticism of GOProud’s inclusion at the ...

HomoQuotable – Doug Mainwaring

“For a long time I thought, if I could just find the right partner, we could raise my kids together, but it became increasingly apparent to me, even if I found somebody else exactly like me, who loved my kids as much as I do, there would still be a gaping hole in their lives because they need a mom. ...

Editorial Of The Day

From the National Review: The irreducible challenge the Second Amendment poses to gun restrictionists is that it does not bestow upon the people a right they previously lacked. It proscribes the government from infringing upon a right the people already have. It is not that the people are allowed to arm. It is that the government is disallowed to disarm ...

National Review Alters DNC Photo

The cover of the latest issue of the right-wing National Review features an altered DNC photo to make it appear that delegates are waving “abortion” signs. In fact, the signs read “Forward.” After complaints, the National Review issued a response: The image used on the cover and the contents page of the October 1, 2012, issue of National Review, in ...

Headline Of The Day

For once I can’t entirely disagree with the National Review. While my “hotel” isn’t nearly as bad as the one they describe, it’s certainly quite shabby.

National Review Slams Romney’s Homocon

From the right wing National Review: Grenell’s being openly gay is, in itself, of no consequence for his service in the Romney campaign. Nor is the fact that he supports same-sex marriage — if, that is, we were assured that this view would have no influence on American foreign policy. But Grenell has made a particular crusade of the marriage ...

The Boldest NOM Lie Yet?

Today NOM’s Thomas Peters published a celebratory column in the National Review which declared their victory in thwarting New York marriage. Even though the battle rages on and there hasn’t been a vote yet. National Review has since yanked the column and replaced it with something (slightly) less lie-filled. Who’s the editor at that joint?
