Sam Harris is an awful Islamophobe whose presence in our current popular discourse illustrates just exactly how screwed we all are.

"This is not football. In football, when a game ends in a draw, you think it is proportional, but when it finishes 7-1 it’s disproportionate. Sorry to say, but not so in real life and under international law."

"I’m familiar with your country; I love your country…Anything I can do to make the relationship with India better, I’m willing and enthusiastic about doing so… Just as your capital is welcome here to produce good-paying jobs in the U.S., I’d like our capital to be welcome there…I ask cooperation and commitment and priority from your government in so doing. Can I have that?"

Florida Freshman Rep. Curt Clawson (a Tea Party Republican) asking Nisha Biswal and Arun Kumar for cooperation from their country, India.

Only problem? Both Biswal and Kumar are senior American officials. So, basically, Clawson saw two brown people, heard India, and thought they had to be Indian.

This is the tea party.

Lol carnist.

Just awful.

While both the Israeli military and Palestinian resistance factions violated the terms of the ceasefire, a close examination shows that Israeli violations were more frequent and far more deadly.

Out of Israel’s 191 violations, 10 percent resulted in death and 42 percent in injuries or detentions; while out of the 75 Palestinian violations, just four percent resulted in injuries and none in death

Yeah, but Palestinian violations count for 3x the Israeli violations because … well, I’m sure the US will have a reason later.
