Wingnut Weekly – 12 Jan 2020

Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above this past week to point out … “The wildfires in Australia are a tragic reminder that we can’t wait any longer. We need to deal with climate change now while there is still time.”

What continues to be jaw droppingly astonishing is the constant stream of utterly bizarre claims that are being promoted by many right-wing “thinkers”. Well yes, the air quotes around the word “thinkers” is wholly appropriate because very little rational thinking is taking place.

Is this posting that throws a spotlight upon it all criticism?


It is also something else. It is entertainment. The degree of disconnect from reality is so great that what we get is pure comedy gold.


Wingnut proclamations from the last 7 days

Here for your enjoyment is this week’s selection of wingnut gems. It has all been mined from the stream of befuddled right-wing / religious proclamations …

The Cult of Trump ..

Rather blatant attempts at emotional manipulation …

  • Robert Maginnis: Christians Will Be Jailed and Killed if Trump Loses Reelectionif Democrats gain control of the levers of power, they will immediately begin to persecute Christians. “If you’ve got the keys to the jail, you control it, and then you determine who is going to go in it and who is going to stay out of it. And I tell you, Christians are the ones who are going to go in it first.”
    • Reality Check: The vast majority of Democrats are Christians. The primary difference is that they are not stupid.

International Terrorism is apparently a jolly good idea …

Fan Clubs

ERA Fan Club …

Background: The ERA, which was first passed by Congress in 1972, needs 38 states to ratify it into the Constitution. With Democrats gaining control of Virginia’s state legislature in the November 2019 election, Virginia is poised to become the 38th state to ratify the ERA, so this is happening …

Obama Fan Club …


  • RBG Is Cancer Free and Brenden Dilley Smells a Conspiracy … “The answer is going to be one of two things,” Dilley claimed. “One: There are cures to cancer that exist that they don’t allow those of us at the lower end of the food chain to receive. That is answer number one. Answer number two is the bitch died and they’ve cloned her numerous times and we don’t know who the fuck that is.”
    • I’m going with Option 3 – Modern medicine works and Dilley is a nutter.

What else came out of the Wingnut fantasy land?

Lots of other stuff. 

As always, it is an endless stream. Some of it is sad, some is rather grim, and some is quite frankly hilarious. Here are a few more samples …

  • Preacher: We Must Re-Elect Trump or Satan Will “Take Back Over This Country”
  • Buttigieg: I’ve Been a Christian Much Longer than Trump’s “Been a Republican”
  • Christian Woman Sues Postal Service for Rejecting Her Self-Designed Jesus Stamps

  • Georgia Lawmaker Plans to Introduce Useless Bill to “Protect” Prayer in School
