It’s Thursday Threatcon, your intelligence briefing on right wing activity. Below are the best reports, investigations, exposées, and debunkery of the wingnutosphere this week. Due to Donald Trump’s decision not to release his tax returns until November, our Threatcon Color Code is RED INK

    • Donald Trump’s entire campaign is about resentment. I doubt anyone in the campaign cares the least bit that there’s a white nationalist delegate in the mix. It’s not as if our glorious news media will call him on it.

    • Golly, another piece that makes it clear Hillary Clinton did nothing out of the ordinary with her email. That must mean there’s something out of the ordinary about it. *eyeroll*

    • There are plenty of good people in North Carolina, but there’s a part of me that hopes HB 2 causes the state’s entire economy to crater.

    • I did a quick skim over the PLOS ONE paper. Either I have a very oddly-calibrated humor detector or the authors had their tongues firmly—if subtly—in their cheeks when they wrote their paper (the science, incidentally, looks reasonably sound).

    • “[A]bortion laws do not reduce abortion rates, but contraception does.” In other news, water is wet, fire is hot and chocolate is delicious.

    • I hope I never understand the obsession Righties have with other people’s sex lives.

    • George Zimmerman is a despicable human being.

    • If they weren’t dangerous lunatics, the Bundy clan might be amusing to watch as reality crashes in on their carefully-maintained intellectual bubble.

    • To all those Right-wing politicians who think God told him to run for President, perhaps it’s time to consider the possibility that God’s just messing with you.

    God told me to run for President, too, but I knew he was just trying to get a rise out of me.
