FOX NOOSE TOMORROW

News for lazy and ignorant white people

 "This instrument [Television] can teach, it can illuminate, yes, it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is nothing more than wires and lights in a box."

Edward R. Murrow, 1958. 

Historic hearings will be televised tomorrow night investigating into exactly who was responsible for the attempted overthrow of democracy in America seventeen months and two days ago. All of the network and cable news outlets will be covering the event which commences tomorrow night at eight 'clock eastern time - all but one. If you're the least bit curious to learn about the attempted coup of January 6, 2021, don't even bother tuning into the FOX Noise channel. You see, for obvious reasons, they have decided not to cover what is the most important public hearing into the inquest into the Watergate affair nearly half a century ago. The reason for this is the fact that more than a few of the "personalities" on Fox are implicated in some of the behind-the-scenes shenanigans that went down on that infamous day. Perhaps even the boss, Rupert Murdoch, had a hand in things. We shall see.

The Federal Communications Commission was created back in the day to ensure that some kind of political propagandist SCREAM MACHINE would never happen on the American airwaves. It happened. And it wasn't a slow-moving thing that gradually metastasized throughout our national political dialogue. It literally exploded overnight in full view of the FCC watchdogs appointed by President Bill Clinton. Were they aware at the time what was being let loose upon the news culture of this country? Who knows. All that can be said for certain is that they were asleep at the switch. For the good of the country, the entire operation needs to be shut down.

Ed Murrow
As I wrote on this site late last year (forfive me for quoting myself but I'm tired):

"[Edward R.] Murrow died nearly fifty-seven years ago, but the man was prescient in many ways. One of his biggest fears was that television news would become what FOX News undeniably is. A propaganda arm for any political ideology. That in itself is not necessarily a completely bad thing. After all, MSNBC leans notably to the left. But FOX Noise is something else all together: Lights and wires in a box. Not to mention a serious danger to our democracy and the public well being. It needs to disappear forever."

Forever.

SUGGESTED VIEWING:

Here's Joy Reid last night on MSNBC giving a fairly reasoned analysis on why FOX is ignoring tomorrow night's hearing:


This is going to be interesting.

Claiming Joy Reid gave a fairly reasoned analysis on ANYTHING is a joke and a threat to our democracy.

Tom,

Were you ok with the banning of President Trump by Twitter?

Liz Cheney, 6-6-22: "This moment is a moral test for the Republican Party because of the mortal threat we face - and right now, there are too many in my party who are failing it."

Radical Right authoritarians always fail the moral test.

You can't be moral when you're a sociopath who has no concern for the health and welfare of society's less fortunate. You can't be moral if you repeat and act on Trump's Big Lie.

Greed is their creed. Power is their god. Wealth is their virtue. Lies are their gospel.

They claim to be Christians, but their hate tells us what they really are.

"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." – John 13:34-35

They ignore the words of their Savior, and He knows who they are:

Matthew 7:21-23
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Democrat Domestic Terrorism: Anti-Life Democrat Charged With Threatening to Murder Justice Brett Kavanaugh Identified as 26-Year-Old Nicholas John Roske — Radicalized by Democrat Party, Media Over Leaked Roe Decision...

"love one another" unless the other person is a conservative, then it's ok to kill them.

How will liberals know what Fox does or doesn't broadcast since they don't watch it?

Liberal pro Abortion White Supremacist Liberal admits he was planning to kill Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. Is this a threat to our democracy?

Abortion activists firebombed a pro-life pregnancy center outside Buffalo, N.Y., the latest in a series of attacks on pro-life offices and churches since the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. Is this another threat to our democracy?

On June 14, 2017, a liberal gunman supporter of Bernie Sanders walked onto a baseball field at Eugene Simpson Park in Alexandria, Virginia, opening fire on politicians and wounding House GOP Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana and four others. Is this another threat to our democracy?

Or are these actions just typical Liberal violence?

The clown that is charged with attempted murder of Kavahaugh is facing max 20 years in prison. Persons caught dealing pot face 25 to life mandatory. Ironical.

Projection:
"love one another" unless the other person is a conservative, then it's ok to kill them.

This is the projection of hate that the radical Right will use to justify more mass murder.

Many of the militia, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers and Klanpublicans are salivating for the chance to gun down democrats and progressives.

First step: Demonize everyone you hate as "communists". Declare them enemies of America, then start shooting.

This is what those radical Right gun fetish goons want, you know.

And of course they are all good "Christians". Just ask them.

Right, Vern?

I bet you'd love to put a "racist commie", as you called me, in your cross-hairs.

Trump (Republican Jesus) says its OK.

Meanwhile:
A reporter just asked Kevin McCarthy if he thinks Trump bears responsibility for inciting the January 6 insurrection— he responded: “I think everyone in the country bears responsibility.”

And:
The FBI has arrested Republican candidate for governor Ryan Kelley at his home and taken him into custody.

These are the anti-democracy crooked authoritarians who want absolute power and minority rule.

Liz Cheney (R WY):
"On the morning of January 6, President Donald Trump's intention was to remain president of the United States, despite the lawful outcome of the 2020 election and in violation of his Constitutional obligation to relinquish power. President Trump summoned the mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack."

“To my Republican colleagues I say there will come a day when Donald Trump is gone but your dishonor will remain.”

"President Trump oversaw a sophisticated seven-part plan to overturn the 2020 election and prevent the transition of presidential power.”

1. President Trump engaged in a massive effort to spread false and fraudulent information to the American public claiming the 2020 election was stolen from him.

2. President Trump corruptly planned to replace the Acting Attorney General, so that the Department of Justice would support his fake election claims.

3. President Trump corruptly pressured Vice President Pence to refuse to count certified electoral votes in violation of the US Constitution and the law.

4. President Trump corruptly pressured state election officials, and state legislators, to change election results.

5. President Trump's legal team and other Trump associates instructed Republicans in multiple states to create false electoral slates and transmit those slates to Congress and the National Archives.

6. President Trump summoned and assembled a violent mob in Washington and directed them to march on the US Capitol.

7. As the violence was underway, President Trump ignored multiple pleas for assistance and failed to take immediate action to stop the violence and instruct his supporters to leave the Capitol.

The truth hurts Trump's loyal cult. FOX(R) won't even show the hearings.

Anonymous Vern is soooo hateful and ignorant he blames Biden for global inflation that started to rise when Trump was in office. Even if Trump had won, this inflation would be here.

Like all fascists, Trumpists like Vern want to make Biden and "commmie democrats" the scapegoats.

Mostly he is desperate to change the conversation from the facts on Trump's crimes and praise and love for his thugs.

ANYTHING to deflect from Trump's Big Lie and insurrection, amirite?

The crooked republican Trumpists KNEW they were criminals and asked for pardons.

A number of Republican lawmakers, including Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), asked the White House for pardons in the weeks after the attack, for their alleged involvement in trying to overthrow the election

Their dishonor will follow them to the grave, History will honor the words of Liz Cheney:

“Tonight, I say this to my Republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible. There will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain.”

Yeah, sure.

lmao

^^^^^
Above is Exhibit A:

Only a sociopath or brainwashed Trumpist, or both, would "lmao" at the truth.

He has no facts to contribute to this discussion of his loyalty to a thug-loving traitor.

What does that make HIM?

 
At 2:33 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

"Maybe our supporters have the right idea. Mike Pence deserves it."

This is Vern's hero's comment on hanging his own VP for not obeying his criminal order.

What does that make HIM?

 
At 2:47 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

A simple question Anonymous Vern is terrified of answering:

Did Trump lose a fair election to Biden?

Yes or no?

Tough one, amirite? Why is that?

We all know why...

I'll never forget January 6th, 2021.

Gas was $2.25 a gallon.

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

...And there's the fear-laden deflection away from a simple question.

A lot more children were still alive in Uvalde, Texas January 6, 2021. The NRA, Republicans and their judges who think 18 year-olds should by AR-15 style weapons are to blame.

Vern doesn't care about that so much either.

"Pro-life" ends at birth for him.

 
At 6:07 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

Officer Daniel Hodges, the cop who went viral for a video of him bloody and crushed in a door on Jan. 6th, says Trump has "no redeeming value" and "managed to con" his followers, adding that he doesn't know how Republicans "sleep at night."

The reason is they are authoritarians and have no conscience.

Corporate America loves Joe cuz they're making shit tons of cash.The feds and their money manipulation has come back to bite consumers in the ass once again, and there is no law against it(none that are actually enforced anyway). Republicans kiss the ass of their corporate masters and the Democrats bites their hand and thus we are having a "market correction".
