Right Wing Watch

I guess he thinks all those are bad things? Maybe he's never been on an electric scooter.  They're a lot of fun.  But sometimes I think that's a defining characteristic of the right. They hate on a lot of things that are really fun.

H.L. Mencken's classic definition of "Puritanism": "The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy."

they hate the theater, TV, movies, music that isn't sufficiently "patriotic", trains, walking, vegetables, good coffee, wine, beer that isn't Bud or Coors, NFL players, NBA players.  It's quite a list of what many people would consider the best of our country.

If I had to live in their world, I'd die of boredom.


and I'll add a good example I saw on FB this week.  A local right winger posted a complaint about yesterday's parade in Jersey City for the St. Peter's basketball team.  He called it a "participation trophy" for a team that didn't win a championship.  IMHO, if the St. Peter's tournament run didn't give a person at least a little bit of joy these past couple of weeks, I feel sorry for them.  It was a bunch of local guys accomplishing one of the greatest feats in NCAA sports history. What is wrong with a person who **** on such an accomplishment, that inspired so many people?  


I couldn't care less about college basketball and even I got a little tingly about St. Peter's.

Maybe the right-wing is anti-underdog in any context, as changes to any expected pecking order might be experienced as confusing or threatening?


Apparently Gov. Ducey didn't follow the example of Queen Victoria who after agreeing to a law outlawing homosexuality refused to agree to a law outlawing Lesbianism because she said that there was no such thing.

At least that's the story I heard.


she kinda reminds me of someone

From the Wikipedia article on Prof. Amy Wax:

In 2021, Wax wrote that "the United States is better off with fewer Asians," claiming Asians are ungrateful for the advantages of living in the US and vote disproportionately for the "pernicious" Democratic Party, which she called "mystifying" because the Democratic Party "demands equal outcomes despite clear . . . group differences" and "valorizes blacks." She favorably cited Enoch Powell while calling for stricter race-based immigration restrictions against Asians.[35][36]


Penn Law School's dean, Theodore Ruger, called Wax's statements about Asians "racist", "white supremacist", and "diametrically opposed to the policies and ethos of this institution".[37] Glenn Loury, the Brown professor who had hosted the interview, called her comments "outrageous" and said, "What she said about the Asians could have been said, and was said, about the Jews not so long ago. Today we call that antisemitism."[36] As of January 5, nearly 9,000 law students had signed a petition to have Wax suspended.[38] The statements drew condemnation from both local Pennsylvania papers and national press.[37][39]

Good speech and I have been a fan of Stephanie Ruhle for years. Wish her well in her new time slot.

It’s this type of crazy talk that has gone unchecked over the last decade or so, that is creating so much conflict around the globe. We’re living in the twilight zone. 


Republicans and the cpac in Hungary this month, so American conservatives who are supposedly deeply committed to the ideals of personal liberty, limited government, free markets, human dignity, and the like will be joining forces behind one of the most authoritarian and antisemitic heads of state in the world. If this doesn’t alert you to where the whole conservative movement is headed, then I don’t know what is. 



this is....something

this is where these people are becoming radicalized. This is no joke.

Hmm, the bible says we need to tax the "foreigners".  We've been doing it all wrong for years!

The Bible talks about capital gains tax......  really. I supposed the Bible wanted to lower capital gains taxes on the rich.

This seems very staged.

Tucker actually said, "I hate even thinking in terms of groups anyway, because what matters in the individual."  

This guy so racist and bigoted towards so many different groups, his whole show is targeting different groups.


listen for "peach tree dish"


there are no quiet parts anymore.

(tried to clean up the f bombs but somehow they're still getting picked up)


of course the word guns never leaves his lips


I wish these people would get their stories straight.

Marjorie Taylor Greene says that the shootings are "false flags" by liberals.
