Between slamming Planned Parenthood and calling porn a “public health hazard,” the Christian right is not going away – – The ongoing popularity of Donald Trump, who is managing to woo even some evangelical voters despite his tabloid-friendly sexual history, has caused folks in some quarters to suggest this represents the decline of the religious right.
Ted Cruz’s victory in Iowa, however, demonstrates that those proclamations were, at best, premature. If anything, the perception of declining influence is causing the fundamentalist set to lash out, embracing even more extreme and even apocalyptic rhetoric, as evidenced by Cruz’s cozy relationship with some of the most radical evangelical leaders in the business. – Between slamming Fundies in Undies and calling Cracka a “public health hazard,” the Christian right is not going away!!!
White guys in charge frustrated by their inability to silence all women (Part MXVII) by – That post from Rachel Held Evans that we linked to yesterday — “Donald Trump and a Tale of Two Gospels” — apparently sparked a Twitter tantrum from Jerry Falwell Jr. Jerry Jr. apparently spent a chunk of his day angrily denouncing her on social media before deleting his tweets after, he said, he “took her down.” OK, then.
There’s a pattern here with angry authoritarian men like Falwell getting puffed up with indignation because this woman is saying intolerable things. (By which they mean there is a woman saying things, without their permission, and that this is, to them, intolerable.)
When these guys find their infallible authority questioned by some uppity woman, they do what they have always done — for generations. They appeal to tribal gatekeepers to either force this woman to get back in her place, or to make an example of her by having her fired. – Fundies in Undies in charge frustrated by their inability to silence all Crackas!!!

Melissa Harris-Perry narrowly escaped being attacked last night at an Iowa hotel during caucuses By JGibson -Monday night I was sitting in a hotel lobby in downtown Des Moines with my back to a wall of windows, my eyes fixed on the TV, my attention wholly focused on early caucus results. I didn’t notice until he was standing right next to me, much closer than is ordinary or comfortable. When he started he speaking it was like he was picking up in the middle of sentence, finishing a conversation we had begun earlier, but I couldn’t remember ever meeting him. – This MSNBC host had a terrifying experience during the Iowa caucuses By Michael E.
