Oh, Lou:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/lou-dobbs-cr...-patriots/

Quote:Dobbs actually jumped in and said, “I’m not asking you to speak for them. I’m asking you did they explain why they drew their guns.”

Pergram said there was no official statement, but again added, “You just don’t have security breaches like that.”

Dobbs remarked at one point, “Just as the country is dealing with trying to constrain lethal force, that would be a poor time to suggest that Capitol Hill police should draw their weapons on American citizens, most of whom are patriots.”
No they are not fucking Patriots. That's insulting. They're obsessed with an awful human being. If they were Patriots, they wouldn't be there..
People who proclaim themselves "patriots" are 99% likely not to be.
What makes me particularly sick is how, absolutely, positively, 100% guaranteed, none of these fucks actually would ever risk their lives for their country. The only reason they engaged in as much of this bullshit is because (and it makes me even more sick that they were right) they counted on their white privilege to keep them from getting shot to death. They're cowards through and through so, that tells you how one sided this whole thing is. They KNEW they could do something like this and not worry about getting killed in the process. If it were a situation where they thought for one second that it could end with them in a body bag....they wouldn't have shown up. Makes me nauseous..
You're not wrong. If these rioters were black/BLM groups, the streets would be red.

After all, this is what the Capitol looked like during BLM protests...

The whole thing looked like parts of The Dark Knight Rises. It was utterly surreal.

This mob should've had a major example made out of them. Anything less and they're just asking for it again. Twitter oughta be shut down...or at the very least, every instigator's account should be perma-banned and Trump should be OUT. Freedom of speech ends where that speech becomes dangerous, does it not? Or am I wrong about that? If what you're saying is knowingly inciting violence, fuck your first amendment rights..
Fox News talking about trusting the media because Trump lied to his supporters. Christ they can even say it with a straight face even though they were spreading the lies
Fox News basically doing this now:

At one point, Fox News had a chryon reading "Twitter Flags Trump Video Calling For Peace."
The guy who wanted all those war criminals pardoned has opinions:

Quote:Pete Hegseth, one of the biggest MAGA guys on Fox, says "this is the result of frustration that a lot of people feel. I frankly wasn't surprised. I am not saying it is okay, I'm not saying all those things, but images didn't shock me." Listen to him channel the rioters...

The future of this country, Earhardt, is no more forced hysterectomies:

https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1347521407463415808

Quote:Ainsley Earhardt: “There are 75 million people that voted for President Trump. And they are scared. They are worried about what the future of this country looks like. They are confused and heartbroken that their candidate didn't win and they don't want to be forgotten.”

The "fuck your feelings" crowd sure is fragile.  Oh, and they're fascists for storming the Capitol in an attempt to upend democracy.
Bongino will "go bankrupt" before letting Parler shut down:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/dan-bongino-...shut-down/

Quote:Bongino, an investor in Parler, was on Fox & Friends to talk about how the conservative-favored social media website was cut off by Amazon, Google, and Apple for its failure to moderate threatening rhetoric. Parler has come under public pressure for providing a platform to foment the violence that took place when Trump’s supporters stormed Congress in an attempt to overturn the 2020 election.

Bongino began by calling Parler’s derailment “an open war on free speech” being led by “the tech tyrants, the tech totalitarians,” and “the communists.”

“We were wiped out!” Bongino exclaimed. “I have not slept all weekend. They have effectively tried to bankrupt me and my investors on Parler, and you know what? They won…They wiped a company from the face of the Earth this morning, and liberals and the media are celebrating it.”

Throughout the interview, Bongino never faced any questions about why exactly was Parler de-platformed. Instead, Bongino seized the opportunities he was given to rail against Parler’s supposed censorship, and he promised critics that this won’t be the end for it.

"You think this is funny? Parler will be back. So just so the audience understands. I will go bankrupt and destitute before I let this happen…Parler will be back. We’ll be back by the end of the week. I’m begging you all to please support us. It’s not about the money. It’s not about anything. If Parler goes down, everyone else will be next.'
"It's not about anything." is quite a rallying cry.
Fox News looks to be expanding its nightly bullshit parade by 33%:

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/11/media/fox...index.html

I'm not at all surprised. Viewers of that channel have no use for actual news. They just want to watch to see who they're supposed to be blaming that day.
"I will go bankrupt and destitute..."

Feel free.
"I will go bankrupt before I let this happen! So, uh, please give me your money instead?"
I've never understood the whole "you gotta let fascists have their free speech or else you'll be next!!"

Sure, Janet.
Some motherfuckers are finally paying for Capitol Hill..
I mean, they can have their free speech, but that's not the same thing as being entitled to someone's platform and mechanisms for drawing attention to and disseminating it. That's like Civics 101 shit.
Which of course these people suck at Civics, but it's also the Free Market that they claim to revere so much at work, doing exactly what they claim it is so much better suited to do than the government. These companies didn't pull their participation from Parler because the government ordered them to. They did it because continuing the relationship would be bad business.
lol the playbook for these jerkoffs is like 3 pages, written in crayon

yeah but the free market isn't supposed to work on (rich) white people!

Quote:A loyal friend, hounded without mercy by Democrats intent on destroying him from Day 1. Then he lost the election. It made him crazy or revealed a dysfunction I had refused to see. 

He then unleashed a mob to make war on their own government. 5 to their doom.  @LizCheney is right
"The digital ghetto." - Glenn Beck

Times like these, I wish Jon Stewart would randomly pop up on my TV to make fun of Beck:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/glenn-beck-c...-the-wall/

Quote:Glenn Beck railed against tech company crackdowns on social media platforms on Tucker Carlson’s show Tuesday night.

He invoked Japanese internment during World War II to say, “We made one of the biggest mistakes of the 20th century by taking our own citizens and listen to this, confiscating their wealth, making sure they couldn’t work, shutting them down, and then putting them in camps. Tucker, this is the road we are on again.”

He went on to actually make this historical analogy:

“This is like the Germans with the Jews behind the wall. They would put them in the ghetto. This is the digital ghetto. ‘You can talk all you want, Jews, do whatever you want behind the wall.’ That’s not meaningful. And that’s where we are. That’s where millions of Americans will be.”

“It’s not to compare it to the Germans,’ Beck added. “It’s not to do anything but warn: if you don’t stand up for free speech, you will be the one that loses it as well.”

After the comment got some attention on Twitter, CNN’s Jake Tapper hit back, “This is nothing like what the Nazis did to the Jews and if you think that you’re an absolute moron.”
Oh, suddenly the fringe right is opposed to internment camps? Somebody better tell Michelle Malkin.
Hey everyone...Trump is going through a much worse, much more harrowing experience than any of us could've imagined. Being booted off of Twitter is comparable to being in Auschwitz. That poor man..
OAN is avoiding the Impeachment talk like the plague. What a trash channel. they need to be booted off the air. they add nothing to the discord
Sean's not happy with Republican leadership:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/mitch-mcconn...-nonsense/

Quote:Fox News’ Sean Hannity warned Republican senators on Wednesday night that they shouldn’t take part in the impeachment “circus” when it moves to the Senate for the trial.

“Any Republican senator, let me be clear, that dares waste one second on this charade, after the president is gone from office, they need to be out of office,” he said.

.....

Hannity continued minutes later, after saying Liz Cheney should no longer be in House GOP leadership for her vote to impeach President Donald Trump.

He went back to calling out Republican senators and again specifically mentioned McConnell:

“Senate Republicans, you want to go along with this nonsense, 75 million Americans went to the polls. I’d argue they went there more for Donald Trump than for Republicans. They should think about why people voted for Donald Trump, why they support his agenda. And Mitch McConnell, you should know better. Even considering this nonsense in the Senate will get this country nowhere. It will not heal divisions, it will not improve the lives of Americans, it will only further divide a country that is just weeks out of one of the hotly contested races in history. And as I said last night, it’s important for Americans to step back and take a collective breath.”

It's a doozy:

Quote:Tucker Carlson: "The Democratic coalition is built on shared genetics. The basic idea is that everyone who is not a straight white man must be united as one in unshakable solidarity"

Hey, was it just that Trump guy who riled up all those rioters who hurled racist insults at black Capitol Police officers?  Maybe somebody else has been saying really gross stuff for the last four years?
They continue to lie about the election:

Quote:Peter Navarro: “The Democratic Party did violence to this country by attacking a president who I believe was legally elected on November 3,” “74 million Americans out there” are “pissed off” like him.

Maria Bartiromo: “We know that there were irregularities in this election.”

Objective reality doesn't give a shit what you believe Peter.
