Professor Glenn Reynolds, who holds the Jubilation T. Cornpone Shootin’ Arn chair at the University of Tennessee, has a few questions for all you skinny-jeans-wearin’ latte-sippin’ emo-emotin’ prefer-our-kids-alive-more-than-dead fancy-pants gun-grabbin city slicker man-card-less metrosexual homoseckshuls.

Guns. Nuts.

As one who has intermittently watched Glenn Reynolds over the years, I’d say that it is impossible for him to be embarrassed despite the multitude of reasons why he should be.

Come Saturday Morning: What Fifty-Plus Years of a Business-Bigot Alliance Gets Us — The Modern GOP

By: Saturday March 31, 2012 6:45 am

How did it come to be that what once was the Party of Lincoln is now the Party of David Duke and Strom Thurmond? It was a simple business calculation — Corporate America and rich people in general wanted to get out of paying the taxes needed to sustain our societal infrastructure, and they figured the best way to do that was to manipulate race hatreds among whites in order to convince them that societal infrastructure helped black people more than white people.

It succeeded very well in cutting the taxes on the rich and on corporations, but that success came at the price of poisoning the minds of the Republicans, from the lowliest grunt worker to elite-level opinion controllers like Noonan and Carlson, with the deep-set sickness of bigotry.

The Ole Perfesser Stands His Ground: Heh. Ignore.

By: Wednesday March 21, 2012 11:00 am

The Ole Perfessor is fond of telling us how he just wishes he’d been there with his thing to protect all those people who keep getting killed by crazies with guns, so we were anxious to read what he’s saying about the killing of Trayvon Martin and the gun laws used by his alleged killer. Or we can listen to a recording of crickets.

After Being Proven Delusional and Wrong, Republicans Declare Victory

And now that the mass ignorance of the Republican Party has been confirmed yet again, who wins? Why, Republicans of course!

Sarah Palin, David Wynn Miller, and the Ministry of Truth

By: Wednesday January 12, 2011 1:20 pm

The conservative/Republican version of Orwell’s Ministry of “Truth” is at it again, hijacking and corrupting yet another set of words — this time it’s “blood libel.”

Glenn Reynolds: The Real Victims of the Arizona Mass Shooting are Conservatives

By: Monday January 10, 2011 10:30 am

In today’s Wall Street Journal, Putz says that people like Gabrielle Gifford’s husband Mark Kelly, in denouncing the “angry rhetoric” on the right — are dishonest and indecent.

“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Repeal a Victory for Civil Rights, a Bitter Defeat for Conservatives

By: Sunday December 19, 2010 11:30 am

Nothing is more delicious than the sweet, sweet taste of right-wing bitterness. And in the wake of yesterday’s historic civil rights victory for gays, the reaction across wingnuttia has been tasty to watch.

Hate and Fear Drive US Panic Response to Threats

By: Wednesday November 24, 2010 8:53 am

An article in Wednesday’s New York Times noted how residents of Seoul are taking Tuesday’s artillery shelling of a South Korean island by North Korea in stride, viewing that event as “largely contained and unthreatening.” How different that is from the panic-driven banning of toner shipments to the US after the failed attempt to bring down airplanes with toner-bombs. Using the toner-bombs as buildup, TSA now is forced to “justify” its eight month delay in its over-response to the failed Mighty Underpants Eagle bomb. Oh, and returning to the Korean situation, the Times notes that the Korean attitude is “We don’t want war.” That’s not quite the position of prominent right-wing nutjob Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds, whose response to the shelling was “I say nuke ‘em. And not with just a few bombs.” The calm resolve of our Founding Fathers has given way to panic driven by hate and fear, producing a nation of xenophobic cowards. Enemies of the US need not even be successful in killing a single person to be able to drive us into hate-filled screeds and billions of dollars in useless “security” measures.
