Skip to comments.RationalWiki: American Thinker is a Wingnut Publication
Posted on 11/19/2014 4:53:03 AM PST by rktman
A RationalWiki piece informs its very-intelligent readers that American Thinker is a wingnut publication.
In a sub-link which explains the word wingnut, moonbat RationalWiki says that not all conservatives are wingnuts. Nonetheless, American Thinker is a wingnut publication. That must mean that RationalWiki believes that American Thinker isn't even a good kind of conservative publication. Bad conservatives, apparently, are reactionary or radical right: unlike the good ones.

...now if I can just make Olbermann’s “worst person in the world” list one day......
LOL! Does olbermann even have a job anymore?
...actually, he’s back on ESPN with some magazine show in the 5-6-7 time range on ESPN 2 I think.
His panties and high heels got all tangled up over Gooddell and Ray Rice.....
And, no doubt, his retirement will be a lot better than mine. Sometimes life just ain’t fair. LOL!
RationalWiki must believe that good Republicans: equivocate; rationalize; cave on the superior knowledge of Democrats and their think-tank allies; will do anything to keep their political power as defined by their best friends, the Democrats; look the other way when a Democrat breaks the law; believes that there are moderate muslims, and praises the efforts of CAIR and other peaceful muslim groups == list continues ...
They don’t like me either.
Bracken’s novels are part of a recent glut of self-published apocalypse fiction incorporating libertarian, populist, survivalist, xenophobic and ultra-conservative themes and rhetoric. Bracken is strictly a conservative, although due to the genre he is writing in his books are unfortunately read by the same people who eagerly devour the obscure novels by John Ross, Neo Andersen, Boston T. Party, David Crawford and James Wesley Rawles. The typical reader of this sort of fiction is someone with libertarian leanings who doesn’t entirely “get” libertarianism (especially its non-violent aspects, its liberal positions on social issues, and its wonky roots in Austrian economic theory), and conflates it on several points with militarism, nationalism and nativism.
In short, Mr. Bracken can be called the lobotomized racist’s attempt to mimic Tom Clancy. He knows his audience and knows how to push all their patriotic, flag waving, paranoid, anti-Mexican, anti-Muslim, nationalist, violence-fetishist buttons. A key piece of evidence is in those dumb book titles. “Enemies”, “foreign” and “traitors” are spat out as epithets and the order simply rearranged for each new book.
On the positive side, at least Bracken’s novels give these people something to read other than The Turner Diaries, and giving someone one less reason to read The Turner Diaries is probably doing society a favor, however small.
Ted Turner? LOL! Just kidding........ Who wants to read about him and hanoi jane anyway?
Yes, they mention FreeRepublic
“Free Republic is a wingnut message board focusing primarily on United States politics. It is particularly known for its regular posters (generally known as freepers, and not to be confused with readers of the Detroit Free Press newspaper), who have a reputation for being bigoted, pseudoconservative, uninformed loudmouths somewhat to the right of Fox News. Free Republic is considered, from a rationalist perspective, to be just about as reliable a news source as WorldNetDaily, and a great deal battier.”
Dang good description. Thanks rwiki. Didiots. I guess they would appear on the left wing commie extremist list in that case.
Let me guess. DU is a mainstream blog site where rational, middle of the road democrats exchange ideas about climate, diversity and government.
Dripping with crazed venom...so much for being “rational.”
High praise indeed!
It seems rationalwiki isn’t so rational. Same Dumb@ss Party talking points, same anti-Americanism, same detachment from reality.
