The polls for many of the elections are closed, and we’re doing a runoff election to resolve the ties.
Religious fundie of the year
This year, Kerrie and Jason Struhs, and The “Saints” who tried to pray diabetes away are tied with the Assam lynch mob that hanged someone for dating outside the faith.
Both winners seem intent on putting their religion into action, either through ignorance or malice. Next year, maybe the winner will do it to themselves instead of some innocent victim.
Right-wing wingnut of the year
The winner for wingnut of the year, by overwhelmingly popular demand, is former President of the United States Donald Trump.
Because of course it is. He might not actually be the most unhinged wingnut we’ve ever had on here, but he was definitely the most notable, the most powerful man in the world, and yet somehow kept the wingnut persecution complex alive. And he’s also a total gaffe machine; very quotable.
Left-wing moonbat of the year
This year, North Korea officials Ri Il Hwan and Han Chang Sun—of the country and ideology that’s totally not a cult—tied with the Communist Party of Great Britain simping for Dear Leader Putin’s Glorious People’s War.
The dictators in question have not published a statement on whether they’d be interested in having Western tankies supply them with blowjobs.
Conspiracy theorist of the year
The conspiracy theorist of 2022 is Jerry Derecha, the Adrenogate blogger who’s too smart for Q and knows that the “Q Clearance Patriot” is actually a quantum computer run as a psy-op to identify and neutralize all the dissenters.
In a sense, I’m actually relieved to see this. Q probably is being run by some propaganda outfit, and it’s good to know that they haven’t totally mastered their marks. Still a conspiracy theorist that thinks sharing a first letter with Quatzecotal must mean something, which is why the award, but still.
Ableist of the year
The winner is Galit Distel-Atbaryan, the abusive mother.
It was a neurotypical parent of an autistic child last year, too. Narcissistic autism parents are the worst.
Sexist of the year
The unanimous winner, with a score of 5.00, is Imaniceguy, the father-daughter incest apologist.
The incels are making a big deal out of nothing. There’s a reason why this quote has a higher fundieness score than the actual murderers that tied for FOTY; at least they have the excuse of being trained from birth in their toxic culture. The incels made up this idea of ten-year-olds being sex material from scratch (arranged marriages were not usually consummated, because that’s cruel and stupid).
Racist of the year
For racist of the year, it’s a two-way tie between Prussian Society of America (2)—the Nazi fans who Dunning-Kruger their way through biology—and Gregcyber—the Confederacy fan who Dunning-Kruger’s their way through biology.
I know the “Prussian” thing is also COVIDiocy while the Gregcyber thing is anti-interracial-breeding, but still, both are great specimens of pseudo-biology in addition to being hate-filled racist screeds.
Mammonist grifter of the year
The winner is Aleks Svetski, the Bitcoin shill.
Some people would think it’s inappropriate to compare cryptocurrency with racism and murder-by-faith-healing, and on its own I guess it is. But a lot of Bitcoiners aren’t “just” Bitcoin shills; they’d be wingnuts worthy of posting here anyway even if they weren’t trying to get other people to buy their bags.
Heteronormative crusader of the year
The winner is Dalton Clodfelter, the bullying apologist.
Could’ve also been tagged for ableism and bodyshaming, which I guess makes sense. A lot of transphobia is just that with an extra dose of fear mongering.
Magnetic crank of the year
The winner is Cobra, from “The Portal”, a blog that mixes space aliens from another dimension with wingnut talking points about “woke ideology” and global warming.
L. Ron Hubbard wants his shtick back.
Jack Chick memorial award for worst art
The worst artist in 2022 was officially Ileana the Star Traveler. It’s this thing:
Quack of the year
The fake doctor of the year was Irène Grosjean, the pedophilia advocate.
It’s almost like the voters don’t like it when you hurt kids. What is it with that?
One-liner of the year
Anonymous Coward #80402537: “Is a man a homosexual if he has cats? Yes he is.”
Chicken Little Award for failed predictions
The winner is Sherri Tenpenny, who predicted that everybody who got the COVID vaccine would develop AIDS by the end of 2022.
Website of the year
The winner is ovarit.com, a TERF site so prolific, the mods rate-limited it.
As an example, here’s their version of the ”penis as a fucking weapon” quote.
Submitter of the year
The submitter of the year is the very prolific @rabbirealm.
Commenter of the year
The commenter of the year is the consistently on-point @Zinnia.
You should’ve been nominated last year. In any case, you’ve kept up the high quality. Thanks.
Troll of the year
The troll of the year is the sock puppet master who’s obsessed with The Virgin Mary: @foxtrot / @Kingselyda2nd / @R2 / @Sweetcake.
