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 brand-new court desegregation orders, our Threatcon Color Code is JUMANJI GREEN

    • The image at the top of the page is inspired. I kind of want that cap (yeah, I’m a geek).

    • Donald Trump is animated by a single principle: egomania. He’d actually be less scary if he actually had some sort of guiding ideology (other than “I’m great”).

    • It’s almost as if congressional Rs don’t care about the spread of Zika virus. But that couldn’t possibly be, could it?

    • As I said a few days ago in another forum (bobcesca [dot] com [slash] another-transphobic-lunatic-confronts-a-cisgender-woman-in-the-womens-restroom [slash] #comment-2679247301), when—not if—one of these busybodies aggressively confronts someone s/he thinks is transgender and that person Stands Her Ground, who are Righties going to cheer?

    • Germany, as a matter of public policy, encourages renewable electricity generation (you know, the thing the Rs keep screeching The Free Market—hallowed be Its name—should decide whether we need). The result, to no one’s surprise, is cheaper electricity. There are nice things in the world, and this is why we can’t have them.

    • Eric Parker skated partly because the prosecutions were cack-fisted, mostly because juries simply will not convict cops.

    • “Civilization at the Crossroads: The Natural Family as The Bulwark of Freedom and Human Values” Oh, sweet mother of pearl. Unintentional self-parody like that would be hilarious if the World Conference of Families (oy) weren’t a bunch of dangerous bigots.
