Ken Ham and his ilk are either delusional loons or liars. Their followers are deluded fools. Fuck all of them.

People need to stop with the bad thing that might even be a legitimate harm is violence or terrorism or whatever. These idiots need to stop thinking only in terms of rhetoric. I give it five years until something that is bad for children, maybe sugary cereals, is called child molestation.
This is a direct result of their over-interpretation and reliance on the Saphir-Worf hypothesis. Language is thought, therefore controlling language controls thought, thought controls action, and therefore rhetoric is actually violence, and changing the rhetoric solves violence.

Check. If one were to credit him with deliberately taking a cheap shot at HRC while she's out pimping her book of denial over what a singularly horrible person she is, it hits the mark. But he reached and breached his credit limit long ago.

The guy Trump retweeted also is a cop sucker, a seth rich truther, and (I hear) an anti-semite.
