In a compilation of extremist Christians’ responses to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at LGBTQ Nation, the late justice was called a “murdering hag” by one follower of Christ while another compared her to Adolf Hitler before stating he had redeeming qualities she lacked.

As the report notes, far-right Christians were beside themselves with joy after Ginsburg passed away from pancreatic cancer, paving the way for Donald Trump to nominate her successor who will likely be a deciding vote to eliminate a woman’s right to control her own body.

According to former GOP politician and evangelical Gordon Klingenschmitt, “With glowing tributes from leftists, pro-aborts, LGBTs and the mainstream media pouring in from around the globe, I personally mourn her death because she apparently did not know Christ. This past month I prayed for her soul, that she would prepare to meet God.”

That was one of the nicer things said about the liberal Supreme Court pioneer.

Evangelical activist Dave Daubenmire didn’t hold back in his contempt for the late Ginsburg, writing, “Hitler condoned the killing of at least six million. Ginsburg – 60 million. Do you mourn Hitler’s death? Who’s more wicked? If it wasn’t a tragedy that Hitler died, why is it a tragedy that she died? Can somebody explain that to me, please?”

“Hitler had good intentions,” he added. “He reformed Germany. He did a lot of good things. He rebuilt their economy. We’re just not going to hold this murder of these Jews against him, are we? He did a lot of great things. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, why she went and advanced women’s rights. She brought women out of the kitchen. Oh, she did so many good things. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? Wake the heck up. She was destructive. She was wicked and destructive.”

Former Donald Trump adviser Frank Amedia couldn’t help but make a joke about her Jewish faith, writing, “very interesting that a Jewish princess was taken home on Rosh Hashanah — or taken somewhere, praise the Lord, I’ll leave that to him.”

At the right-wing Christian site Stream, John Zmirak speculated God killed Ginsburg  “… at just this moment for some special reason,” giving the president an opportunity to dramatically alter the court in a way that would please Christians.

‘#PerdueIsChicken’: Internet mocks ‘coward’ GOP senator for canceling debate after Ossoff destroyed him in viral video

Published

on

Democratic Senate hopeful Jon Ossoff destroyed his Republican incumbent opponent so thoroughly Wednesday evening that Georgia Senator David Perdue has just canceled the third and final debate.

“It’s not just that you’re a crook, Senator, it’s that you’re attacking the health of the people that you represent,” Ossoff told Perdue, who had little to say in response. The viral video had been watched 5 million times by Thursday morning. It's now been viewed 9.3 million times, nearly as many times as the number of people in the entire state of Georgia.

A fake ‘intelligence staffer’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden

Published

on

It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.

Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.

Glenn Greenwald resigns from The Intercept over Biden article

Published

on

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald said Thursday he had resigned from The Intercept after the US investigative media outlet refused to publish his article critical of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Greenwald, one of the first journalists to report on the Edward Snowden documents on US mass surveillance, said he was leaving the website he started in 2014 with two other journalists.

"The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept's editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden," Greenwald said in a blog post.
