Yes, the man who was trying to hit on an employee was full of self-righteous wrath when his then-wife wanted a divorce. It’s all so very predictable and sad: Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly, known for his hardline stance on family values and violence in the home, allegedly assaulted his ex-wife, dragging her down the […]

Right-wing attention-seeker Dana Loesch and Peter Schweizer share their paranoid insanity: LOESCH: We’re going to have more on the terror attack in Garland, Texas, last night.
