AFA: American Fuckwits Association

I couldn't believe what I was reading this morning when I saw the report that many affiliates of CBS have dropped the updated 9/11 documentary from their scheduling. Why? Because of intense lobbying from the American Family Association over the bad language from one of the interviewees. Dark Ages much? I really am stunned at how they have SO spectacularly missed the point. I made a joke a few years back that America would soon be like living in The Handmaid's Tale. Suddenly that doesn't seem so funny anymore.

Why are you surprised? We're rolling back every bit of progressive action that has happened in this country since 1900 and replacing it with our all-new version of Victorian society.
We rant and rave about religious extremists trying to blow us up from their deserts, but why can we not see the religious extremism that is gaining an increasingly stronger foothold in our society here?
