Take gamergaters and mra's, throw in new athiests and libertarians, simmer in a broth of self-entitlement and season with a lack of empathy, and you have the new cultural identity of Redpill.  Warning, taking the red pill will turn you into an asshole.

Out the gate, the Republican House goes for a law silencing scientists, and the Republican Senate goes for that job-killer Keystone pipeline.

Sounds about right for the GOP.

Call it what you like as long as you regulate the dangerous weapons like VAGINAS but leave honest people's good-guy-protection devices like guns alone.

No really, its about ethics in game journalism.

r/KotakuInAction bills itself as the responsible, respectful wing of GamerGate. The online activity of its moderators tells a much different story. (Warning: This post contains disturbing images.)

It would be nice if the POTUS would use the phrase 'rule of law' correctly.   I didn't expect a sub-par student like Bush to get it right, but Obama was a constitutional law professor for f's sake!

Of course, it isn't over.  The word 'Benghazi' is still useful for fundraising for the GOP.
 
 Today -- very, very quietly -- buried on a Friday afternoon before a major holiday and delayed till after the mid-terms were over… the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee finally issued its report on the tragic deaths of four American diplomats at the hands of terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.  The predictions about this report, touted for upwards of three years by Fox News and almost every Republican pundit and office-holder... (and many of you out there)… confidently forecast that the Obama Administration would be at-minimum revealed as incompetent and deceitful. More-likely criminally negligent cowards, engaged in a Nixon-level illegal coverup, leading to impeachment. With widely-bandied conspiracy-theories glommed-in.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/house-panel-finds-no-intelligence-failure-in-benghazi-attacks/2014/11/21/0749a070-71dd-11e4-ad12-3734c461eab6_story.html

Those of you who made -- or religiously repeated -- this forecast, do have the honesty to raise your hands? So what did the committee —  (chaired by my own vociferously fire-brand-republican representative Darrell Issa) — finally report?

Ah, let's see. "An investigation by the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee has concluded that the CIA and U.S. military responded appropriately to the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, dismissing allegations that the Obama administration blocked rescue attempts during the assault or sought to mislead the public afterward."

Further: "After a two-year probe that involved the review of thousands of pages of classified documents, the panel determined that the attack could not be blamed on an intelligence failure, and that CIA security operatives “ably and bravely assisted” State Department officials who were overwhelmed at a nearby but separate diplomatic compound."

And: "The committee also found “no evidence that there was either a stand down order or a denial of available air support,” rejecting claims that have fed persistent conspiracy theories that the U.S. military was prevented from rescuing U.S. personnel from a night-time assault that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans."

Earlier this year, the United States captured one of the militants accused of orchestrating the attacks in a raid in Libya. Ahmed Abu Khatalla now faces trial in the United States.
 
So... how did you score?  Note that this report was issued by the most partisan U.S. House in 50 years, under a republican leadership that routinely and regularly threatens the president with impeachment for everything under the sun. Indeed, this house -- the laziest in 200 years -- held almost half of its TOTAL number of hours of hearings on just this one "heinous" matter. (They never showed the slightest interest in investigating the eleven "benghazis" that occurred under George W Bush, see below.)  

No, there is only one "conspiracy" here. Delaying this stupendously exonerating report till after the mid-term election, on a friday afternoon before a major holiday.  Oh and Darrell Issa, chairman of the committee? After two years of grandstanding and tirades promising to "hold the criminals and traitors accountable?"

Mr. Issa's office ignored calls requesting a statement. He has been avoiding the press.  It seems... for once... he has nothing to say.

They'll just claim it's all liberal bias coverup whatever.  These people are idiotic bigots looking for a thing to complain about.  They're not going to let go of their favourite chew toy.

Republican ideology is toxic to civilization.   As an example of its consequences, you just have to look at Kansas.   But if you want to see what the rest of us are fighting for, what we could accomplish if they got out of the way, what Republicans keep trying to destroy, just look at:
No other place mixes affordability, opportunity, and wealth so well. What’s its secret?

So this is pretty awesome..

The Humanist Community At Harvard is hosting a little award ceremony to name Anita Sarkeesian their Humanist of the year for 2014.  I like Sarkessian, if only because she pisses off anti-feminists of all sorts to no end.  So yay her.

But it gets awesomer.

Greg Epstein is the Humanist Caplain at Harvard, and is getting the flack for this decision.  There is a tweet war going on as every misogynist is crawling out of their holes to express their outrage about it.   Like I said, every anti-feminist hates her.  But what is amazing are responses as he blocks them.   Like this one:

"@BlueBallSkeptic what we're thinking awarding Anita? Feminism=central to humanism; she=brave/important; & you=blocked if only f/your handle"

Go ahead, read them.  It will brighten your day.  He seems to be having fun.  :)

If you are one of the idiots who think that oil pipelines are safe and Keystone will be good for this country, please consider this.

By far, the environmental destruction caused by pipeline spills is far greater than that caused by rail and trucking accidents.

maybe if you didn't speak to people in a rude way and call them idiots, they'd listen a little more.

Fuck yeah.

"A couple of years ago, I wrote a piece on my personal feminism, in which I noted that while I can be considered a feminist on the fundamental level of “women are entitled to the same rights and privileges as men, with everything that implies in terms of access to education, economic opportunity and personal liberty,” I usually didn’t call myself one, for various and what I thought at the time were perfectly reasonable reasons.

Then 2014 happened, and those reasonable reasons now kind of feel like careful, rationalizing bullshit to me.

So, as an update to my thoughts on my personal feminism:

Hell yes, I’m a feminist."

Back when G+ had that shiny new-car smell, I got into a discussion with a guy who adamantly called himself a feminist, but spewed some of the most absurd sexism I've ever encountered.  (To the point of pasting the entirety of a Satoshi Kanazawa blog post when I asked him for proof that women were "objectively" more attractive than men.)

He was very angry when I called him out on his sexism - in his mind he couldn't possibly be sexist because he was a proud feminist.

If my actions cause someone to call me a feminist, I will take it as a great compliment.   If someone doesn't see me as a feminist, then it means I need to work harder - but I am reluctant to claim the title for myself.

After taking a few days off from Google+ to calm myself down, I've decided to write about Ferguson and how it relates to me. I felt it was best to write on +Medium to avoid the giant post that won't get read. It's a 9 minute read written in my classic style of writing, for your Turkey Day festivities.
