Has Vox Day already won an award? Because I recall a few quotes that advocated violence against women. It was pretty fucked up.
To my knowledge he hasn't. He also excused marital rape, advocated the assassination of Richard Dawkins and expressed his disbelief in evolution (which is actually minor compared to advocating rape and murder).
Just to poke my nose in here(I really should be making a bit of poll software for this finally... but... skyrim).
Categories I will do no question follow: [/li][li]Fundie individual of the year: [/li][li]Fundie board of the year: [/li][li]Fundie quote of the year: [/li][li]Conspiracy theorist of the year:
I do some number pulling to make sure any high profile main page items are included, but I'll include at least one of the nominees from here in the final listing regardless.
Any other categories I'll consider if it gets a decent chunk of nominations. And then wittle them down to a final set to post on the mainpage (possibly on software I should have written in the last 3 years), through a few polls here in the last week of the month.
When a conservative says that a group of people are freedom fighters, they are certainly wrong. When a liberal says that a group of people are freedom fighters, they are equally wrong. When a dictatorship is overthrown by a legitimate and stable democracy that does not itself collapse [...], then and ONLY then can we say that the people who overthrew the previous government were freedom fighters.
Fundie Board of the Year Free Republic, if they have not already won it before, though savagesusie somehow manages to be so loco that she makes the rest of them almost seem normal. If they have already won before, then Moonbattery, and if they have, then “The Thinking Housewife” (which Jazzy and I trainwreck-syndrome over).
Fundie Quote of the Year Proph for his horrifying justification/endorsement of homophobic and transphobic violence.
Racist of the Year It would be nice to pick Anders Breivik, but he was never quoted on the mainpage to my knowledge. If we can pick someone who hasn't been quoted then yeah I'd choose him. If not then I have to go with Gerald James McManus, who wrote a blood-drenched, racist extermination wank-fantasy for Neo-Nazis.
Racist Quote of the Year Definitely the one from Chimpout that prohibits anti-Semitism while condoning racism against black people.
Conspiracy Theorist of the Year Again, agreed with shykid that it should be Michael Savage for claiming the Oslo/Utoya attacks were a false flag operation by multicultural Marxists. Or something. Plus, we have the quote. Runner-up should be SherZieve for herunhingedlunacy.
Misogynist Board of the Year Vox Popoli for the reasons stated in the Misogynist of the Year section.
Misogynist Quote of the Year Although Vox Day wins through sheer volume, I'm going to call a tie between Bob Allen for the cringe-inducing post in which he cheered the near-fatal shooting of (as he put it) "Congresscunt Giffords", and Sandy Rios for callously comparing counseling for battered women to receiving mani-pedis.

Sometimes I like to drag up some obscure stuff. If I made any mistakes just tell me and I'll change them. Also, I apologize for not knowing how to hyperlink URLs.
Fundie of the Year: For her extreme homophobia, Christian dominionism, fear of education, martyr complex, paranoia, and nostalgic desire to return to the Dark Ages and drag everyone else kicking and screaming with her, I nominate savagesusie (www.fstdt.com/Search.aspx?Fundie=savagesusie) as Fundie of the Year. Congratulations for living up to your screen name, you crazy sack of shit.
Fundie Board of the Year: This is a difficult decision, because Moonbattery and Free Republic are both excellent examples of the worst things about fundies. In fact, there are many quotes which are perfect trifectas of Fundie, Conspiracy, and Racist. But personally, I always felt that both were better arguments for creating W(ingnuts)STDT and S(exists)STDT. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of fundie, but the WSTDT seems to overwhelm the FSTDT factor. Earlier I suggested an infamous Vox Day quote that advocated violence against women. However, the blog Vox Popoli seems to embody a level of fundieness that is extremely dangerous. You might be wondering why I didn't just nominate Vox Day as Fundie of the Year and pick some other board. Well, the reason is because some of Vox Day's fans (shudder) are just as rabid and bigoted as Vox is (www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=84227, www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=80830). They are the sum of everything I despise in humanity rolled into one. Therefore, I nominate the blog Vox Popoli as the Fundie Board of the Year (www.fstdt.com/Search.aspx?Board=Vox+Popoli).
Fundie Quote of the Year: Hands-down, this entire essay that defends bullying LGBT teens. (www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83832) While you're at it, maybe you should also throw in an award for Complete Monster.
Conspiracy Theorist of the Year: Yeah I'm going to have to second Michael Savage. How the fuck do you take Breivik, a man with a known history of anti-Muslim hatred and conspiracy theorism, and handwave it with the accusation that it's all a "coverup"?
Racist Board of the Year: I support the nomination of Moonbattery, for reasons stated by shykid and Honky McCracker. As a runner-up, I recommend Africa Speaks www.fstdt.com/Search.aspx?Board=Africa+Speaks for tinges of conspiracy theories and pseudoscience.
