LaBarbera Award: Igor Panarin

A Russian “scholar” has some remarkable predictions for the U.S. in the coming years. President Barack Obama will order martial law, the U.S. will split into six rump-states by 2011, and Russia and China will emerge as the new superpowers of a new world order. He’s been predicting the U.S.’s demise for more than a decade, but he’s pretty sure he has it nailed this time. Why?:

Paranin argued that Americans are in moral decline, saying their great psychological stress is evident from school shootings, the size of the prison population and the number of gay men.

Paranin isn’t just some ordinary loon. He’s a former spokesman for Russia’s Federal Space Agency and reputedly a former KGB analyst. He is currently the dean at the Foreign Ministry’s school for future diplomats, and he makes regular appearances on Russia’s state, err, “guided” TV channels.

Panarin also thinks that Alaska is destined to revert back to Russian control. If that happens, Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin character will definitely see Russia from her front porch.

Clearly this person is crazy.

It’s odd that he actually supplies a date. That makes the whole thing falsifiable (though probably revisable). The secret to good predicting is to give a date and an event, but never both together.

Alaskans will never submit to Moscow. I would leave Colorado and return to Alaska to defend my homeland.

As for the 6 state theory following the imposition of marshal law: yeah right. Everyone knows the United States will be split along Red State/Blue State lines. Red States will descend into religious theocracy motivated by a desire to return to conservative 1950’s ideals that never existed. While the Blue States will finally be able to shuck off the rediculous notions of “God, Guns, Gays”.

Clearly this person is NOT crazy. Moral in this country decline, no culture. People scare even see each other eyes. Lie each other with a smile on face. Financial structure is corrupt, medical field service is expensive and not qualify, mostly this system look like Anarchism rather then capitalism. Well., turn your face to the some true facts!
No one care about you, everyone look inside your pack.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
