In an interview with Australia’s Sky News, News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch falsely claimed that Fox News hosts had not “likened” President Obama to Josef Stalin. In fact, Fox News hosts and contributors have repeatedly drawn comparisons between Stalin and members of the Obama administration, including Obama himself, and have also compared Stalin’s policies to Obama’s policies.
Although Christmas is supposed to be a time of wishing for “Peace on Earth,” like clockwork, the culture warriors at FoxNewsattackthose who prefer the term “Happy Holidays.” Never mind that it’s a nice way of including other religions, such as Judaism, which have their own holidays around the same time. No, those good Christians at Fox News not only demand that everyone use the word “Christmas” in their holiday celebrations, they use the season to proclaim war against those who prefer not to. And yet, somehow the Foxies never seem to see the irony. Thursday night (11/5/09), Bill O’Reilly kicked off the season of good will toward men hostilities with Fox host Gretchen Carlson, who tied the resurgence of the word “Christmas” to the tea partiers. Fox News regular Margaret Hoover refused to join the fracas. With video.
As Priscilla noted during last year’s skirmish, the war on Christmas can be traced to white nationalism and anti-Semitism. It’s not a big leap. After all, it takes a special person to use a holiday season, not to celebrate its intended purpose, but to mount an offensive against other people for being too inclusive.
O’Reilly’s opening salvo was to gripe about the Governor of Kentucky proclaiming that the State Christmas tree had “morphed into the holiday tree.” “We were hoping this stuff wouldn’t happen this year but it has,” O’Reilly said. Oh, come on. It has become a tradition at Fox. It’s their special version of mistletoe – viewers can rev up their hatred for liberals every time they hear the word “holiday.”
Carlson, on the other hand, was overtly happy as a clam, or maybe that should be a lump of coal, to see the war begin. And she was already counting her first victory. She told O’Reilly, “Apparently calls like yours… changed (the governor’s) mind.”
Carlson continued by equating Christmas culture warriors with Tea Partiers: “I think that this is emblematic of what was going on this summer at the tea parties. I think that now Americans have the fight within them and they’re gonna stand up and they’re gonna be heard… I think it’s a new wave of democracy happening right before us.”
Hoover, however, was not joining the war party. Proclaiming herself a federalist, she said, “Leave it to the states… The bottom line, America is a pluralistic country We are multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-theistic. In order to all live together and get along, we’ve got to just get along.”
FOX News is on a witch hunt. Their goal is simple: to destroy the Obama administration and the progressive movement. They’ve already forced Van Jones out of the White House. They’ve badgered Congress into passing unconstitutional measures to defund ACORN. Glenn Beck actually keeps an enemies list on a blackboard that’s a regular part of his show.
The Obama administration has it right: FOX is not a legitimate news organization, it’s a 24-hour political operation. FOX News anchors spew venom and hate every hour of every day, while FOX News “personalities” routinely distort fact and propagate misinformation.
ACORN is just the beginning. FOX has an enemies list, and they’re going to keep destroying progressive champions until we stop them.
Tell your Congressperson: If you vote to extend the “Defund ACORN Act,” you’re just assisting FOX in their anti-American witch hunt.
While Jimmy Kimmel’s man show did feature large breasted women, it was a cable show. Fox&Friends is a popular morning show, on a major cable network, that must have kids in its audience as Steve Doocy did ask them to send examples of evil, librul textbooks to Fox&Friends. Fox&Friends features persecuted Christians who get a sympathetic ear from Miss America 1988 and “culture warrior,” Gretchen Carlson, who bemoans the lack of proper moral standards in this evil, librul society. Only last week, she was concerned about a high school cheerleading routine that was, in her good Christian mind, a grave example of dirty dancing. But meanwhile, Gretchen’s Fox&Friends, is the place for impressionable youth to see American “juggies” and bodacious “booty” in all its glory. Not only do we have Hooters girls there to serve “the guys” (boobs in another sense!) hot wings; but now we have the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders appearing as examples of role models for physical fitness. I’m sure it’s quite uplifting for American daddies as they race off to work and for pubescent junior on his way to librul indoctrination in our schools. It’s all heterosexual, so it’s good!!!!
Last week, on Bill O’Reilly’s “Culture Warriors” segment, our lady of the Gopher State, in discussing the dance moves of the cheerleaders in the video, said that “spreading your legs and shaking your booty” were “overtly sexual.” She didn’t like them “bending over.” When O’Reilly said that the routine was similar to the type of thing the Los Angeles Lakers cheerleaders did, Gretchen asserted that high school girls shouldn’t be emulating professional cheerleaders and that “racy” routines send the wrong message. But yet – but yet, this morning Fox&Friends features a routine, by the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, which features a great deal of booty shaking and bending over (in outfits far more revealing than the high school girls) to show that booty as, according to their coach, role models for anti obesity. And never shy about promoting products or programs, the brown haired guy who isn’t Steve Doocy, introduced Megan Fox (no, not that Megan Fox) a well cleavaged cheerleader who has a new reality show, about the training of the squad, on CMT (eeh, hah!). The music was “boom, boom, shake, now drop” by Pitbull. And while it is a great work out song, I do question the seeming cognitive dissonance between the Fox News moralizing about the lack of “family values” in librul Hollywood and lyrics like: “I wanna see ya work (work) that pole ’till ’till ’till you get sweaty. I wanna hit it from from the back. I promise you’ll like it if you let me.. Cause I like booty n tigg ol bittys…Don’t be scared shake that thang…We got plenty of cash girl.You you call your friends n then I I call my friends N we can do the thang in the back back of the benz..” (Yo, yo, Bill O’Reilly, there are videos of this available which you could use for your “culture warriors” thang. I know you’re not a rap fan; but you do appreciate “tigg ol bittys…”).
It’s all so confusing. On one hand, we have “culture warriors” saying that women should be appreciated for their minds and that impressionable young women shouldn’t be emulating professional cheerleaders while at the same time we have “boom, boom, shake, now drop.” As I’ve said before, there’s something for everyone at Fox Opinion News. Oh, and if you want to get Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader DVD’s, the information is on the video. And BTW, it’s not that I’m jealous of the cheerleaders who aerobically and physically are in fantastic shape – it’s the weird yin and yang, dare I say hypocrisy, of Fox Opinion News.
Neil Cavuto joined the chorus of other Fox News hosts yesterday (10/12/09) in whining about White House communications director Anita Dunn’s strong words about Fox News, calling it “either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party.” On yesterday’s Your World, Cavuto used his “Common Sense” editorial segment to hit back at Dunn.
Cavuto: So, I’m hearing an awful lot about how the White House communications director hates Fox, really, really hates Fox…
“Anita Dunn saying… ‘Let’s not pretend they’re a news network.’ …Lately, it’s been her shtick. Her game. So, Ms. Dunn, let’s continue playing it. Let’s pretend you’re serious. Let’s pretend you’re not a tad – oh, I don’t know – thin-skinned. Let’s pretend you get your facts straight on whether we thoroughly reported Nevada Republican Senator John Ensign’s affair, which we did, or only trash Democrats and not Republicans… Let’s pretend you are open to criticism. Let’s pretend you see alternative points of view on health care. Let’s pretend when someone opposes your view, they might have a point… Let’s pretend you have a memory and recall Fox programs like this one disparaging last year’s financial rescues and whether they were pouring good money after bad. Let’s pretend you know history, and recall that a Republican was in the White House back then, and a Republican Treasury Secretary refused to come on this very show back then… Let’s pretend you work for the United States and not some left-wing blog in the United States… And let’s pretend you care about all of our independent viewers and aren’t being just careless about those viewers’ cares… just as we should pretend you’re not overwrought and snapping. Maybe you’re just over worked and snippy.”
Comment: Let’s pretend, Neil, that you don’t interrupt more Democrats than Republicans in your interviews. Let’s pretend, Neil that you have liberal regulars to counter Art Laffer, Charles Payne and Craig Smith of Swiss America. Let’s pretend, Neil, that your Common Sense comments, while sometimes very good, don’t lean mostly to the right. Let’s pretend that Faux is fair and balanced.
Fox Nation, the website that boasts about its dedication to “people who believe in the United States of America,” nevertheless took several deliberate swipes at it with regard to President Obama’s Nobel Prize. On a home page full of jabs at the prize (and one or two approvals), one of the top stories poses the “Cavuto mark” of a question, “What are the Nobel Prize Committee Chairman’s Socialist Ties? ” Not surprisingly, the chairman is shown holding a photo of Obama next to the headline.
If you click through to the post, the first sentence opens, not with any kind of pride or congratulatory spirit with a swipe at the prize as “befuddling” and a baseless suggestion that the committee awarded it out of a socialist agenda. Of course, the unstated suggestion (also unfounded by any accompanying facts) is that Obama won it because he’s a socialist.
With the choice of President Obama for the Nobel Peace Prize inspiring such widespread befuddlement, it seems worthwhile to ask, just who are these people who made this choice, and what might their agenda be
The post goes on to note that Chairman Thorbjorn Jagland “admiringly” held a photo of Obama and “spoke gushingly” of him in the news stories about the award. Uh-oh! A foreigner speaking well of our President? Something evil must be afoot!
You just can’t make this stuff up! Bill O’Reilly, an educated person, supports the teaching of “Intelligent Design” in our tax payer funded public schools. But then, this is Fox News which plays to those whose seek to impose their Christian theology on those Americans who, like the Founders, don’t believe that religion has any business in the publicly funded square. Obviously, Bill, as a religious person (ROFLMAO!!!), is entitled to his opinion and, based on his interview with atheist Richard Dawkins, it’s a strange one. While the discussion was “fair and balanced” in that O’Reilly took one side of the argument, it was noteworthy in its revelation of O’Reilly’s “Christian” zealotry which, looking at his political views, personal history of unrepentant sexual harassment, lies, voyeurism, and personal attacks, seems hypocritical at best and delusional at worst. Fasten your seatbelts, we’re in for a bumpy ride!!
Yesterday, after Griff Jenkins botched his day-long attempt to crash an ACORN gathering, commenter Ferg at Daily Kos summarized the high point of Griff’s day:
Fox news guys whines about 1st amendment for 4 minutes while dodging questions about Fox propaganda from Adam, and while standing on a red bath mat in a tuxedo.
What did Griff Jenkins have to show for his work yesterday? Apparently, just this:
The sad reality is: that was the best part of our interaction that Jenkins could highlight to save face. (It was evidently the best part of Jenkin’s entire day that he could highlight…and will highlight again tonight on Glenn Beck.)
But I have to ask: How can it be satisfying to be Griff Jenkins? What on earth motivates someone to stand outside on a bathmat all day waiting for moments like the one above. How do you wake up in the morning and think, “I want to do that again!”
I seem to recall that Bill O’Reilly got incensed over “hate speech” on liberal blogs. Does he ever read Fox Nation where the latest race baiting thread has a photo of Michelle Obama next to Carla Bruni, the wife of the French President. The Fox Nation readers are invited to “caption” it.
I seem to recall that Bill O’Reilly got incensed about the disrespectful treatment of Sarah Palin in an Emimem video. Does he ever read Fox Nation where racist (and other stupid and hateful) comments about our First Lady are just part of the terrain of a “nation” where ignorance, hatred, and racism are the “American Dream.” Stay classy, Fox Nation!

On Thursday, June 4, 2009, Glenn Beck devoted his entire show to attacking ACORN with what seemed to be reruns of past segments. But – lo and behold! – the show also included Beck’s get-together with BFF Bill O’Reilly from May 28 in which they seemed to finally be admitting that their evidence of any ACORN badness is pretty thin. But they didn’t let little details like lack of proof or factual verification stand in the way of a good smear. Beck even threw the Obamas into it, while also admitting it was pure speculation. Rock on!
