Y’all Qaeda waging YeeHawd

© Jen Sorensen This has become a very political issue, with some people on the right calling them patriots, and some people on the left calling them terrorists. As usual, the reality is somewhere in the middle. There is a good, balanced article in the New Yorker discussing this called “The Bundys and the Irony […]

We Used To Be The…

© Tom Tomorrow Another great comic from Tom Tomorrow. The more I think about this, the more I think that the resistance to Syrian refugees is based on pure racism. Just like the resistance to Jewish refugees from Germany on the eve of WWII was based on anti-semitism. Does this mean that the Republican politicians […]

This is what a dangerous refugee looks like!

© Lalo Alcaraz Also, commentary by Lalo Alcaraz: I have mixed feelings on the Syrian refugee crisis. Of course, we know that Republicans are turning a well established US refugee program into a political football by playing on terrorism fears and anti-Muslim fervor. On the other hand, our people have not fared well early on […]

Suicide Waiting Lists?

[This is one of those stories that may be just too ironic to be true. Unfortunately, just seeing it in multiple reputable news sources isn’t good enough anymore. And yet I haven’t found anything to discredit it. But as Colbert might say, it does have a certain truthiness to it, so I’m posting it anyway.] […]

The Rape of Logic

© Jen Sorensen Even many people who are “pro-life” carve out exceptions for rape and incest, not to mention if the health of the mother is threatened. But not the Helms Act, which makes no exceptions. And that’s what leads to this incredibly stupid situation. We condemn radical Islamists because some of them treat women […]

Terrorist Plots

Today we have a story that triples down on the irony. The FBI recently announced that they had uncovered a terrorist plot to build explosive devices in New York City. But the more you look into it, the more it looks like a couple of stupid kids who had little or no chance of actually […]

Satire Strikes Back!

How do you fight against powerful religion-based terrorist networks like ISIS? By using satire and humor! CBS News reports that “television networks across the Middle East have begun airing cartoons and comedy programs using satire to criticize the group and its claims of representing Islam.” A producer and writer of a show that mocks ISIS […]

F off!

The mayor of Rotterdam (in the Netherlands) is Muslim (born in Morocco). Speaking on live TV just hours after the attack on Charlie Hebdo, Mayor Aboutaleb said to Islamists: It is incomprehensible that you can turn against freedom… But if you don’t like freedom, for heaven’s sake pack your bags and leave. There may be […]

A Lie that Won’t Fly

It has been a few years since I’ve posted stories about the Department of Homeland Security’s “No Fly” list. Remember, the list that prevented Senator Ted Kennedy from flying, and countless other innocent people, with no way for them to contest being on the list. Things did eventually ease up a bit for a while, […]

Droning on About Constitutional Law

© Tom Tomorrow Don’t get me wrong, I’m not at all happy with all the drone attacks being done in our name. But I think the left is barking up the wrong tree calling this a violation of the constitution. The constitution specifically gives the president the power to conduct wars, and whether we like […]

Crazy Reaction

© Lee Judge Every time a terrorist does something crazy, but not with a gun, we overreact and prohibit it. Not just shoe bombs, but liquids, knives, even knitting needles. But every time a terrorist does something crazy with a gun, we do nothing. I don’t get it. Why would it matter whether there is […]

Al Qaeda Outdone

According to satirist Andy Borowitz, the Al Qaeda terrorist group is disbanding, saying “our mission of destroying the American economy is now in the capable hands of the U.S. Congress.” The now-former Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri declared that the idea of holding the entire nation hostage with a clock ticking down to the end […]

Alternate Reality

Buried in the crosstabs of a recent poll in Ohio is the interesting tidbit that when asked the question “Who do you think deserves more credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?” only 38% of Republicans responded “Barack Obama”. Almost half — 47% — were not sure, and unbelievably […]

Michele Bachmann, Islamist Terrorist Supporter?

I’ve been trying to avoid writing about Michele Bachmann under the theory that doing so just feeds her sick need for attention, but this is just too funny. Bachmann has been getting headlines recently because of her crazy charges that the federal government has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood. It is bad enough that […]
