Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Memorial Day

The best way to honor fallen soldiers is to not make more of them. Support peace on Memorial Day. The troops fought for our freedom, the anti-war movement fought for their freedom.

The Nigerian Girls Might Get Saved (No Thanks To Conservatives)

Bring back our girls!

The United States has deployed 80 troops to Chad to augment efforts to find the Nigerian schoolgirls recently taken hostage, the White House announced Wednesday, a significant escalation of Washington’s contribution to a crisis that has created global consternation.

I'm not saying with 100% certainty that they will save the girls, but at least they have a chance now. The Nigerian government tried to sweep the kidnapping under the rug, but the Twitter campaign championed by good people like Michelle Obama embarrassed the Nigerian government into doing something.

Of course this is no thanks to bad conservatives like Limbaugh and Coulter who mocked the Twitter campaign and didn't offer any incite on their own. If conservatives had their way, all the girls would be doomed. Luckily, their trolling and interference didn't win.

David Benham "Pulled a Cliven Bundy"

Pulling a Cliven Bundy: making an incredibly bigoted statement and having conservatives supporting you. That's what David Benham did.

"In blog posts, he has said that gay marriage "erodes the moral fabric of our society" and has likened the growing acceptance of same-sex marriage to appeasement of the Nazis."

The Nazis hated gays, so this is purely projection to say that somehow accepting gay rights is equivalent to appeasing the Nazis. Of course after getting fired, Benham has become another one of those fake heroes of the conservatives. He is no hero or victim, he is a bad guy.

Republicans Don't Care About Benghazi

Let me make this point clear: Republicans don't really care about Benghazi, to them it's just a shameless political gesture. If Republicans had any decency, they would apologize to the families of those who died at Benghazi. But Republicans don't have any decency, so fuck them! The best we can hope for is that they will be punished at the polls for their scandal of exploiting this tragedy. Again, if you are a Republican and say you care about Benghazi, you don't, so stop lying!
