Anyone who watches Beck and agrees with him should be deeply ashamed of themselves and their stupidity. The rest of us shouldn't pussyfoot around this for fear of offending these ignoramuses.

And yes, before somebody here asks me whether I think that everyone who agrees with Glenn Beck is ignorant - yes, yes I do.

I don’t think you have to be ignorant just to believe it, I think you have to be stunningly ignorant just to check in at even the bottom level of consideration. I mean, the past few weeks on the Middle East, you would literally have to be tuning in with a completely empty mind on the subject* or there’s absolutely no way you could possibly take even one “Ok, I’m listening” type step forward with him.

*And given how far and wide he's been drifting lately, 'the subject' on which you have to be completely ignorant is pretty much 'the world'.

Mubarak Obama | Monica Crowley | Defense of Marriage Act | Mediaite


News broke today that the White House had told GOP leadership that it would not defend in a court of law the Defense of Marriage Act signed under President Clinton. The federal law defines marriage between a man and a woman, and had previously been defended by the Justice Department under previous administrations. This was the topic of conversation today on Fox News, and guest Monica Crowley told host Megyn Kelly that this decision was akin to a “dictatorship” calling the president “Mubarak Obama.”

Crowley took great exception to the Justice Department’s decision, calling it “beyond belief” before passionately stating that its the president’s responsibility to enforce the law that is on the books, not, in her words “to decide ‘well I don’t like that law so I’m not going to enforce it.’” Crowley then claimed that this was a “form of dictatorship” before referencing the president as “Mubarak Obama.”

Someone at the Fox News desk might have better prepared Dr. Crowley by letting her know that reports claim that, in a letter sent to House Speaker John Boehner, Attorney General Eric Holder said that the administration would continue to enforce the law until the court rules differently. So there’s that.

But the “Mubarak Obama” meme is officially out there. Expect to see it at a protest sign near you!

In one fell swoop, you get a nickname for protestors, a slap in the face to gay people, and an implication that Obama is Muslim. Go GOP!

Well, if we really want to turn this back on her, one could argue that denying a certain portion of the population equal rights doesn't exactly scream "free country", but hey...

That is one sad, disjointed, pathetic excuse for an argument there. She went off in, like, five different directions. Consistency and logic are your friends, dear.

A Fox News website has picked up a hoax story about an Islamic council in Pakistan protesting the use of padded and colorful bras and presented it as fact. The story was illustrated with a picture of a woman's mid-section and carried the headline "Pakistan: Islamic Clerics Protest Women Wearing Padded Bras as 'Devil’s Cushions.'" (UPDATE 9:30: Fox has now pulled the story. See the original here.) The lead of the Fox Nation story, which sources the piece to the Indian news website sify.com, reads:
The Council of Islamic Ideology in Pakistan has protested the use of padded and colourful bras by Muslim women, and recommended that Pakistani Muslim researchers should try to invent an innerwear that makes female assets unnoticeable.
...The sify.com story linked by Fox cites a "report" from yet another site called Roznama Jawani...a Pakistani version of The Onion, featuring such stories as "Karachi Preparing a Huge Ass Bat to Beat the Shit Out of Kamran Akmal," "Altaf Hussain Challenges Imran Khan to a Rap Battle to Settle Differences," and "Man From Peshawar Sues Red Bull. Says he has no wings!" The bra story on Roznama Jawani features a crudely photoshopped image of an Islamic council meeting with a large sign that says, "Future of Padded Bras." The story quotes an anti-padded bra protester saying that "Padded bras are evil as they make the breasts look bigger and perky...Only devil women show off private parts."
I was already laughing as soon as I read the "sourced to sify.com" part, but discovering that satire site was even better...

Can I be safe here in saying that the Christian faith is about freedom.

Actually, I was hoping people might enjoy a chuckle over a lighthearted story about a news network's gaffe. Hope dies hard, eh.

Fox News map of nuclear power plants in Japan.

You'll notice one on there called "Shibuyaeggman." Problem is, it doesn't exist.

There is however, in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, a nightclub called the Eggman. They've got it in the right spot on the map too.

I'm not even sure how they make the mistakes they make.

On his first day back from vacation, Glenn Beck addressed the earthquake in Japan, and said he thinks that it could be a "message [is] being sent" by God.

Speaking on his radio show Monday, Beck said, "I'm not saying God is, you know, causing earthquakes," before quickly adding, "I'm not not saying that either."

He then said that whatever one called God, "there's a message being sent. And that is, 'Hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.' I'm just saying."

I'd love to see his blackboard analysis of this one.

Well, that's a crystal clear message. That stuff we're doing? Oooooh, of course! That stuff. Gotcha, God. Thanks for sending Glenn Beck to set us straight.

Alright, gang. I think it's high time we stopped doing that stuff. Seriously, cut it out.
