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 Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy speech attacking Donald Trump’s amateur-hour policy pronouncements, our Threatcon Color Code is RED WHITE AND BLUE VELVET

  • Brian Brown, director of the anti-LGBT National Organization for Marriage, was elected president of the World Congress of Families, an international hate group that pushes various antigay legislation around the globe, at their tenth congress in Tbilisi, Georgia
  • Sovereign citizen’ squatters Randall and Jennifer Skates are asking for speedy trials; they are charged with burglary, forgery, and fraud
  • William Gilroy, a Hawaii resident and ‘sovereign citizen,’ tried to arrest the judge during his hearing on charges of contempt of court and driving without a license. Gilroy was arrested during a ‘freedom ride’ to protest laws requiring a driver’s license to operate noncommercial vehicles
  • KRON-4 TV reporter Stanley Roberts examines a local ‘sovereign citizen’ couple:

    • For the sake of the world, Donald Trump must never become President of the United States. We don’t need an ignorant, incurious, thin-skinned, narcissistic bully who holds grudges anywhere near the levers of power.

    • Maya Dillard Smith’s tale of the obvious transgender women with deep voices barely passes the giggle test—I was intimidated by a group of clichés!—but the fact the woman’s using her daughter in her video makes me cringe. “Finding Middle Ground,” my foot.

    • This may be unnecessarily nasty and unfair, but if you aren’t Christian and you live in the South, aren’t you already in hell?

    • Why wouldn’t our glorious news media not let fetus fetishists dominate coverage of the baby parts fraud? After all, as the Villagers say, “It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not, it’s out there.” (Better reporters, please!)

    • Phil Bryant thinks the Founders would have troubled themselves with which public toilets people use? Good grief, what a knucklehead.

    • Burning Confederate flags is a fine way to celebrate not just Memorial Day, but the Fourth of July. Personally, I think using a flamethrower would be a nice touch.

    Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says that “Christians” will “line up for crucifixion” in order to oppose letting transgender people pee in the restroom of the gender with which they identify.

    Not this Christian. In fact, this Christian will tell Gov. Bryant to go f&#! himself. He can be first on line for the “crucifixion” and I’m sure he’ll be the only one.
