Fuck everyone that works at that propaganda network.

Tucker Carlson is saying that Kamala Harris hates white people:

Tom Tancredo has some gross "advice" for Joe Biden:

https://www.mediaite.com/news/ex-gop-rep...ostpopular

Quote:Former Republican congressman and presidential candidate Tom Tancredo checked off numerous stereotypes in a highly offensive and unfunny joke on Fox News about Joe Biden, saying that, after his subpar first debate, the former vice president’s best chance of winning the 2020 Democratic nomination would be to announce he’s transitioning to a “half-black, half-Pacific Islander” woman.

During a discussion with guest host Jesse Watters on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle, the five-term Colorado congressman launched into a long, disjointed analogy about Biden’s presidential chances after Sen. Kamala Harris challenged his past comments about segregationist colleagues as well as his opposition to integration via busing.

“He was a frontrunner, the Titanic that could not be sunk and he ran into these icebergs called [Sen.] Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris. These two did a great deal of damage to him. I don’t think he can recover from it. I think it will sink him,” Tancredo said, before going on an unseemly riff mocking the constituencies and diversity of the Democratic Party. “I don’t know what he can do at this point in time to change what is going to be I think the outcome. Maybe tomorrow he says he’s going to transition to a woman. Better yet, maybe a black woman. Maybe even better, a half-black, half-Pacific Islander. Something like that.”

"No wonder these Snowflake Generals haven't won a war since 1991: Military chiefs concerned about @realDonaldTrump's July Fourth celebration https://mol.im/a/7211793 via @MailOnline #MAGA #AmericaFirst #Dobbs"
"Why can't our generals be as tough and brave as me, your sad racist grandpa?"
Well, I'd argue that the objective is to have an unwinnable forever war that benefits the military industrial complex, and that's the reason why we haven't "won" a war in almost 30 years. But I'm no expert like Lou Dobbs!
Uhm, weren't the the first and second Iraq wars overall wins?
One ended the invasion if Kuwait, the second with Saddam dead and his regime toppled.

But it’s not as if the fighting stopped when those events happened.  And the Iraq War proved to be a hugely unpopular war that didn’t really do anything for the people we were supposedly bringing freedom too.

Well I'm shocked.
Tucker Carlson really ramping up the fear regarding Rep. Ilhan Omar:

https://twitter.com/ndrew_lawrence/statu...1414087680

Quote:She is "living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country"

She "is a living fire alarm. A warning to the rest of us that we better change our immigration. Or else"

Omar responded:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/ilhan-omar-r...cist-fool/

Quote:Shortly after Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired a segment portraying Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as evidence that immigration is “dangerous,” the Somali-American lawmaker responded with a tweet for the “racist fool.”

“Not gonna lie, it’s kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress,” she wrote on Tuesday night. “No lies will stamp out my love for this country or my resolve to make our union more perfect.”

“They will just have to get used to calling me Congresswoman!” she added.
FOX is not just state propaganda, they're now a hate group and domestic terror organization.

It's good that the majority of the country is too smart and humane to get suckered into their race wars, culture wars, christmas wars and every other type of war they foment; their offices would last one day.

Well, duh.
What I meant is, Im kinda amazed FOX News doesnt peddle both wars as Wins anymore, since their viewers dont care about the consequences of either war.
The thing is, as soon as the Tea Party fringe took over, Iraq and the Mideast Forever War were just as useful a bludgeon for them to use against the GOP establishment as they had been for the Democrats. More, even, since the afterglow had worn off and they didn't need to pretend to be nice about "supporting the troops" the way the Dems did in the '00s.

I agree with your first statement, but it bums me out that I don't think the majority of the country is smart and humane.
Todd Starnes seems like a really nice guy:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/fox-nations-...came-from/

Quote:Fox News’ Todd Starnes told Rep. Ilhan Omar and other immigrants who find America “just doesn’t meet their standards of living” to take a “one-way plane ticket back to whatever third world hellhole you came from.”

“And don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya,” Starnes added in the most cringey way possible.

Speaking on Starnes Country, Starnes’ show on Fox News subscription-based programming Fox Nation, Starnes called on viewers to stand up to the ‘Orwellian tactics’ of the leftist to defend liberty. “Otherwise, the culture jihadist will conquer the nation. ”

Oh, wait, no he doesn't.
Here's a video of highlights from a recent Logan Paul interview on Fox Business:

https://twitter.com/JordanUhl/status/115...5977672722
Yeaaah...I get that hes trying to do a bit for his fans, but good lord does it look (even more) awkward from the outside lookin in.

Also: 14 million? fuck dude.
How many rails he do before that interview?
hey man. He's EX-CONTROVERSIAL now.


Makes you appreciate how most actors are talented enough to be charismatic on command. Paul looks like a scrub when he can't edit around his shittyness.
My friend in high school who worked at McDonald's won't be happy to hear about all the tips they missed out on:

https://www.mediamatters.org/video/2019/...age/224302

Quote:EARHARDT: It's meant to help you get your start. We were all in high school, we were in college, when we had these waiting -- when I was waiting tables. Unless you're at a very fine restaurant, most of those people, at the fine restaurants, that is their career. But they make tons of money. If you're working at a McDonald's or a small little restaurant where you're making tips, you're right. If you're nice to the people, you make a lot of money.
Here's a good Twitter thread (I know, not everyone's favorite thing around here) regarding how conservative media operate with selective stories:

https://twitter.com/ParkerMolloy/status/...2280989696
It's like talking to a brick wall:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/foxs-cavuto-...-the-debt/

Quote:Dobbs responded, “Well, somebody has done a good job and that is President Trump. It is this economy.”

“Lou,” Cavuto countered, “you think he’s done a good job on reining in spending? I give him high marks on the tax cuts and cutting regulations…”

Dobbs jumped in and said, “You have to work this thing out with the president, Neil, but meanwhile, here the is reality…”

Cavuto shot back, “Fact, fact, do you think this president has done anything to contain the deficits and the debt that had spiraled still from what levels he had from Barack Obama?”

“Uh-huh. I do, indeed,” Dobbs responded.

“What has he done to address it, Lou?”, Cavuto asked.

Dobbs pointed to Trump’s actions on deregulation, but Cavuto interjected and said, “I’m talking about deficits and debt!”

Dobbs shot back, “Wait a minute, Neil. You asked me a question, I really need to answer it please… Furthermore you’re looking at unemployment in this country at historic lows. By the way, it is shared prosperity. It is not only shared prosperity, we are looking at record low unemployment for every minority group.”

“I said that at the outset!” Cavuto said. “What about now with the deficit and the debt?”

“I didn’t interrupt you, Neil, you’ve done it to me now twice,” Dobbs said. “Thirdly you’re looking at unemployment rate that is closing a gap in the unemployment rate between minorities and whites in this country which is the exact direction.”

“Lou, we know all that!” Cavuto cried. “What has changed on the deficit and the debt?!… Do you worry about that? If you don’t, that’s fine!”
The best part is how he goes "firstly, unemployment is down", "(second?) I didn't interrupt you," "thirdly, unemployment is down!"

What a great trio of distinct, substantive points.
Tucker Carlson said white supremacy is a hoax:

https://www.newsweek.com/tucker-carlson-...ium=Social

Quote:Fox News host Tucker Carlson called Americans' growing concerns about the rise of white supremacy and white nationalism "a hoax" and "conspiracy theory used to divide the country" in the wake of two mass shootings this weekend that left dozens dead.

During a segment on Tucker Carlson Live on Tuesday, the conservative host lashed out at the media for criticizing President Donald Trump's response to the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings

"It's not the job of this show to defend the president and everything he says," Carlson said after airing a clip demonstrating the media criticisms of Trump's speech on Monday. "Some things we are not going to defend. But in point of fact, he never endorsed white supremacy or came close to endorsing white supremacy. That's just a lie. But he condemned it anyway. Their response, 'he didn't really mean it.'"

Carlson goes on to allege that "the whole [white supremacy issue] is a lie."

"If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns of problems this country faces, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia probably," he said. "It's actually not a real problem in America. The combined membership of every white supremacist organization in this country would be able to fit inside a college football stadium."

"This is a country where the average person is getting poorer, where the suicide rate is spiking—'white supremacy, that's the problem'—this is a hoax," Carlson added. "Just like the Russia hoax, it's a conspiracy theory used to divide the country and keep a hold on power."
Tucker's friends agree:

[attachment=3287]
Steve King, did you hear that? Your own party thinks you're a hoax!

White supremacists and other fascists don't see their behavior as a problem. They, almost by definition, think everyone else is the problem. What did we expect this tool to say?

Also, evidently people are now calling up USAA Insurance Company and complaining that it continues to advertise on Tucker's Fox program, and that many people are now considering not insuring with them because Tucker tells lies that white supremacy is a ''hoax,'' after three racially-based shootings coast to coast. The company predominantly features black families in its advertising, too.

Wooow.  The balls on this dude. To talk that type of shit when people know you got your hands dirty in some ugly shit. And now you want to talk about poverty. I know this is all bad-faith nonsense, but holy shit does Tucker need a punch in the face.
