If you’ve watched any cable news at all this week, you’ve seen a YouTube clip of apparent Libyan militia members diving into a pool from a second floor balcony, probably accompanied by some sort of dire, poignant commentary about the state of the region, and if you paid any attention, wondered why the fuck this […]

Earlier today, we tipped you off to a video of Ferguson cop and retired Army  Sgt. Major Dan Page ranting for a full hour at an Oath Keepers meeting that our friend Karoli at Crooks and Liars and DU user 951-Riverside had discovered online. Well, looks like Rant Boy’s career is over thanks to a number of progressive and liberal blogs […]
