Filed under: PolitikSad SadFacebookViral: News

You might be wondering why North Carolina insists on devolving with its legislation while the rest of the country is focusing on other catastrophes looming ahead.

Well, here's a glimpse at the types of lawmakers running the state that's STILL trying to ban same-sex marriage!

A North Carolina legislator has landed in hot water after comparing Abraham Lincoln to — we shit you not — Adolf Hitler in a Facebook comment.

Video: Sean Spicer's Hitler Presser Fail Mashed With Veep Closing Credits!

Larry Pittman, a representative in the North Carolina General Assembly, said Honest Abe was the "same sort of tyrant as" the Nazi leader, who enslaved and killed millions of Jews and — yes, Sean Spicer, even used chemical weapons.

Pittman's ridiculous claims came in response to Facebook comments criticizing him for introducing a bill that would render the Supreme Court's decision in legalizing same-sex marriage inapplicable in his state.

One user pointed out that those who "don't respect the Supreme Court and the Constitution" shouldn't be in public office, to which Pittman replied:

Lincoln Memorial Closed Due To Vandalism! Boo!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersPolitik

lincoln memorial closed vandalism paint

Oh no!

Four score and a few hours ago, someone sprayed the Lincoln Memorial with green paint!

A visitor discovered the vandalism early Friday morning. The monument has been closed ever since for cleaning.

What a jerk! People come from all over the world to pay their respects to Abraham Lincoln! You mess with him, you mess with America!

And also Daniel Day-Lewis, who isn't American but is probably feeling it deeply. He REALLY gets into character.

We hope there's no permanent damage! We hold these truths to be self evident, that vandals suck!

Jimmy Kimmel Asks Random Kids If They Know Who Elvis Presley Is!

What the feezy?!?

On the latest episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host introduced a new segment called Do You Know, and after running through icons that everyone should recognize, such as Santa Claus and Abraham Lincoln — he expresses that kids know nothing about Elvis Presley!!

But what made this clip even more inneresting was that Jimmy actually went out in Hollywood and asked kids if they knew who the King of Rock and Roll is, but unfortunately, he FAILED miserably.

Taking into account that Elvis died in 1977, we highly doubt that children could identify the singer, but we bet if Kimmel would've asked the kiddies who Justin Bieber is, they would be all over that trivia like white on rice. LOLz

Wanna see Jimmy stump children?!? Hit that play button (above)!

Lincoln Lives! Watch The Inspiring International Trailer!

Watching this on election day is nothing short of inspiring.

Slavery was officially abolished 147 years ago by the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution, yet we are STILL fighting for equality to this day!

The first international trailer for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln reminds us of that more than anything, but it also reminds us that a little courage goes a long way.

Even in the face of dangerous opposition, Abraham Lincoln stood up for what he believed in by delivering an Emancipation Proclamation that forever changed the course of American history.

Today we have a choice between two men who will have the same opportunity. While one has said he will continue to push for the civil rights that every American citizen deserves, another openly admits he will not.

The choice is as clear as it is yours. Make it count.
