Right Wing Round-Up

  • It looks like Glenn Beck is trying to turn his unique brand of insanity into a political movement or a cult or something and plans to use the next 9/11 anniversary to stage another Obama-hating rally.
  • I am sad that I missed Restoration Weekend.
  • Box Turtle Bulletin dissects the Manhattan Declaration.
  • On a related-note, Sarah Posner wonders if the Declaration is an “act of desperation or hubris”  or “a sign that they are emboldened by their balance-tipping abilities.”
  • RH Reality Check reports that various right-wing groups in Nevada have come out in opposition to the “personhood” initiative effort in the state.
  • Finally, anti-gay hates crimes have increased for the thrid consecutive year, but I doubt that will stop the Right from lying about the issue.
