When TMZ released video of Ray Rice brutally knocking out Janay Palmer, national outrage ensued. But not everyone condemned this incident of domestic violence. Many people, mostly conservatives, praised it and said Palmer deserved it. That includes South Carolina Republican troll Todd Kincannon, who wins the prize for worst tweet about domestic violence ever.

Who wants to bet he considers himself a pro-life, family values-conservative?

Put politicians on minimum wage and see how fast things will change. Stop fighting each other and start fighting the 1%. Stop funding the beast (government) because tax = theft. Power in numbers... the people will win if we stick together. Stop police brutality and take back our rights xoxo

Although I agree with most of what you say, fight the 1%?  But what if the 1% are good people?  My grandmother is part of the 1% and she’s lying around minding her own business, watching soap operas in her room at a retirement home.  You can’t say, “stop fighting each other and start fighting the 1%,” because they’re the same thing.  Let’s stop making the 1% a boogieman.  That’s a progressive class warfare lie.  Anyone that has saved up their entire life to retire with a couple of million dollars are not bad people - they’re smart people.  We all should be following their example.

In fact, personal responsibility should be our motto.  If we want to stop funding the beast, as you put it, we need to stop depending on government as a solution to all our problems.  We need to do away with bankrupt plans like social security, and start creating our own tax-free social safety-net programs like personal retirement accounts from birth.  We can do away with Medicaid and Medicare by opening up health savings accounts.  Let anyone put tax-free money into them whenever they want.  That’s real wealth distribution, and it’s done outside the greedy eye of the federal or state government.

We can fix this thing still, we just have to start filling more and more seats in Congress with Constitutional conservatives and libertarians who believe in free market solutions.  We need to convince the rest of the drive-by voters to stop buying into these Democrat promises and stop reelecting the same incumbents in either party.  Not only do we have to vote ourselves, we need to wake other people up who have been asleep to this fiasco and convince them to vote; because the Democrats are not only doing this, they are also convincing the completely clueless and disenfranchised that their vote for big government will somehow help them when the completely opposite is true.

(ThinkProgress) Former state Sen. Russell Pearce (R) resigned his position as first vice chair of the Arizona Republican Party late on Sunday evening amid criticism of comments he made on his radio show about women on welfare.

On a recent episode of his show The Russell Pearce Show, as the Phoenix New Times originally reported, he told a caller, “You put me in charge of Medicaid, the first thing I’d do is get Norplant, birth-control implants, or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs and alcohol, and if you want to [reproduce] or use drugs or alcohol, then get a job.”

Later in the episode, he said, “I know there’s people out there [who] need help, and my heart goes out to them, too. But you know what? That should never be a government role. That’s a role for family, church, and community.”

In the statement announcing his resignation, he called the criticism of his remarks, which were denounced by state Democrats as well as Republican nominees for a variety of posts, a “mistake.” He said there “was a discussion about the abuses to our welfare system” and he “shared comments written by someone else and failed to attribute them to the author.”

I think it’s important to point out that these views are in no way outside what, for lack of a better term, I’ll have to call the mainstream of the GOP base. If it were up to rightwing bloggers, nutjobs on Twitter, and Tea Party types, Pearce’s opinions would be written into the GOP’s party platform.

What this move tells us is that, in a post-Akin world, the Republican Party is extremely skittish when it comes to anti-woman sentiment — i.e., the “War on Women” rhetoric has been far more effective than the GOP establishment is willing to admit. The inherent dog whistle racism of using genocidal means to fight poverty can’t have helped either.

It also tells us that the Tea Party extremist base has lost a lot of power. They’re more worried about offending the average voter than of alienating the Gadsden Flag-waving ‘baggers.

I’m sure you all know how much of a class act former Governor Mark Sanford (R. SC) is. Well just when you think he couldn’t get an more classy, he continues to surprise you:

Representative Mark Sanford of South Carolina surprised the political world on Friday with his announcement that he was ending his engagement to the woman with whom he had an extramarital affair, the revelation of which stunted his rising-star career five years ago. […]

Dinesh D’Souza educates the anti-American “professor” and 9/11 apologist, Ward Churchill.

It’s sad that men like this have been miseducating the youth of our country.  No wonder so many people believe this rubbish about the US.

(TPM) Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal paid a visit to Washington, D.C. this week to roll out his national energy policy blueprint.

At a breakfast for reporters Tuesday hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, the Republican governor attacked President Barack Obama for not fully taking advantage of the United States’ fossil fuel and energy resources.

"The reality is right now we’ve got an administration in the Obama administration that are science deniers when it comes to harnessing America’s energy resources and potential to create good-paying jobs for our economy and for our future," Jindal said. "Right now we’ve got an administration whose policies are holding our economy hostage."

The “science deniers” line of attack mirrors that of progressives against Republican lawmakers who don’t accept the broad scientific consensus that climate change is real and man-made.

Is this the Bobby Jindal who once took part in an exorcism, you might ask?

Yes. Yes it is.

Democrats believe in the separation of church and state…well, until they need to use biblical context to further their view or agenda.

(FiveThirtyEight) When we officially launched our forecast model two weeks ago, it had Republicans with a 64 percent chance of taking over the Senate after this fall’s elections. Now Republican chances are about 55 percent instead. We’ve never quite settled on the semantics of when to call an election a “tossup.” A sports bettor or poker player would grimace and probably take a 55-45 edge. But this Senate race is pretty darned close.

Why is the United Nations so critical of Israel?  Perhaps because it’s filled with a bunch of antisemitic scumbags.  Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s why.

I say it’s high time we pull our country and our funding out of the United Nations which is a pointless organization that offers nothing of real value to the world.

Wow. Just wow.

Ex South Carolina Republican operative, Todd Kincannon took to Twitter on Sept. 9 to post an utterly tone-deaf reaction to the TMZ video showing NFL athlete Ray Rice knocking unconcious his then-fiancee Janay Palmer. While the Tweet has since been taken down, it wasn’t before someone took a screenshot of the tweet in which Kincannon vilifies the victim by saying that the “dumb bitch” got what she deserved for starting the whole mess. 

Kincannon’s gross display of misogyny did not stop there.
