A well-written article everyone should read. Brown skinned immigrants are dangerous, Black Lives Matter are trying to destroy America, Antifa are the real fascists, and the Republican party and its Trump loving base are patriots, even as they work behind the scenes to destroy democracy, voting rights, and continue their attack on Roe v Wade.
This is is the type of programming that Fox News has run for years, and yet despite evidence that can be viewed any day of the week, denials of any racism from the network persist.
When Joe Biden became 46th president of the United States, conservative media began an all-out assault to piss all over him, and completely whitewash his predecessor. Actually, it began long before, with conservative media’s unwillingness to hold a president to account for his lackluster response to a pandemic, and his shameless behavior throughout, which included attacking and demonizing his administration’s top infectious disease advisor. It continued with bogus claims of election fraud, and his media sycophants and their eager willingness to feed his narcissistic ego, to kiss his ass and repeat his lies – all of which culminated in the assault on the Capitol.
On the November 23 edition of Bret Baier’s Special Report, former energy secretary to the Reagan administration, Bill Bennett worked the rubes into a frothing rage. Their cult leader is no longer in the White House, so the new resident must be demeaned at all costs.
“There’s a problem with the Biden administration right now that’s getting acute,” he said. “And that is ‘keep saying things are getting better, things are okay, you think things are bad, don’t believe your own eyes. Don’t believe what you see at the gas pump, believe me.’ This is what happens in authoritarian countries, and it’s a very dangerous road, a very dangerous road to take.”
Is Joe Biden an authoritarian dictator for rising gas prices? Certainly not. It’s insane to make that claim.
Is Joe Biden responsible for rising gas prices? Not really. But he is the current president and conservative critics are looking for every excuse to make him look bad, even if the accusations make no sense.
From Tuscaloosa News:
“When the world economy shut down in early 2020, we already had higher than normal stockpiles of crude oil, the raw material from which gasoline is produced. The shutdowns exponentially reduced our driving, which in turn reduced demand for gasoline at a time when the market already had a glut of crude on hand.
“Now that the economy is restarting and demand is rising rapidly all over the world, prices have risen. The old law of supply and demand raises its ugly head. But Biden…”
“Note when oil and gasoline prices began to rise. That started in May of 2020. Between the first week of May 2020 and the last week of December 2020, oil prices had tripled. Was Trump to blame for this?
“No, the reason oil and gasoline prices rose is that the economy started to open back up from COVID shutdowns…”
Biden is now president, so, naturally, he gets the blame. Conservative media isn’t interested in discussing the actual reasons that gasoline prices are higher now. Biden is an easy scapegoat, so blaming his policies is easier than looking at the bigger picture.
The Washington Post’s Charles Lane brought up the fact the former president often acted like an authoritarian in his four years, to which Bennett said, “Get off Trump.”
In an article in the Washington Post, Johnathan Greenberg outlines 10 ways in which Trump acted like an authoritarian dictator:
Trump uses military power and federal law enforcement to suppress peaceful political protest. In June ( 2020 ) he deployed the National Guard and federal officers to violently evict protesters in Washington, terrorizing them with two military helicopters flying low near the crowd…
Trump persistently lies about voter fraud, setting the stage for him to use emergency powers to seize control or challenge the results if he loses…
Trump has repeatedly suggested that he might remain in office after a second term and has offered reason to doubt he’d leave peacefully after his first term…
Trump believes he has the power to outlaw speech critical of him, and calls the free press ‘the enemy of the people…’ John Bolton in his new book claims that Trump said of journalists: ‘These people should be executed…’
With Fox News promoting Trump’s lies as truth, the president controls one of the most powerful propaganda machines ever created. During the impeachment trial, for example, Fox hosts repeatedly attacked the character and mental faculties of Democratic reps. and witnesses, while focusing almost exclusively on testimony of pro-Trump Republicans…
Trump believes he has the power to do what he wants, regardless of Congress or the courts. “I have an Article 2 where I have the right to do whatever I want as president,” he has said.
Trump had messianic delusions that are supported with religious fervor by millions of his supporters. He has “jokingly” looked up to the sky and said,”I am the chosen one” in relation to negotiations with China. Then energy secretary Rick Perry echoed other evangelicals who have said that Trump was sent by God to do great things when he seriously proclaimed Trump is the “chosen one.” A Guardian report described the evangelical response to Trump’s photo op in front of Lafayette Square’s St. John’s Episcopal Church, which many viewed positively…”
Now, some will point out that Obama behaved similarly during his presidency. I would, in turn, like to point out that although there were similar incidents where there were peaceful protesters who were gassed with tear and pepper spray, as well as incidents at the border where migrants seeking asylum were also gassed, Obama never staged a photo-op during a protest, in front of a church, with a Bible in his hand to virtue signal to his base.
Conservative media consistently accused Obama of not being transparent. Yet when it came to Trump, who claimed to be the most transparent president ever, they had no problem whatsoever.
Conservative media often claimed Obama would remain in office if he were not reelected and would declare martial law to ensure that he remained in power. From day one, his critics concocted all manner of lies and conspiracy theories to discredit him. Some had to do with executive orders. One email claimed that he had signed over one thousand in six years. He actually signed 276 in eight years. Obama never hinted at staying in office like Trump did, defying election results. When Obama said at an education event at the WH,”I’m going to be working with Congress where I can to accomplish this, but I am also going to act on my own if Congress is deadlocked. I’ve got a pen to take executive actions where Congress won’t, and I’ve got a telephone to rally folks around the country on this mission.” When he said this, his Republican critics accused him of ignoring the Constitution and acting like a dictator. But again, when it came to Trump, he was given a free pass.
Conservatives accused Obama of having a messiah complex, who wanted to be a king and God who made “everything about himself. It never happened. Obama never said he wanted to be a king and/or a God. He never made anything about himself. Conservatives made everything about him. They were racist and bigoted toward him, so they claimed he made everything about race.
He was never declared or given the Godlike status of his supporters the way Trump has by his supporters. Trump received the support of millions of evangelicals and conspiracy theory crackpots who literally believe he was chosen by God. He has been enthusiastically endorsed and embraced by extremist fundamentalist Christians. Obama was neither endorsed by evangelical Christians to the extent Trump has. Obama was condemned for not attending church, though he often did. Trump never attended church as president, his sycophants ignored it. Obama was never depicted with Godlike attributes in political cartoons as Trump was by Ben Garrison. Obama was often depicted as a skinny weakling with big ears.
“This guy is creating a disaster,” Bennett continued, ” and he is reversing all of the Trump policies. Whatever one thinks of Trump, he wasn’t destroying the country in the way that this administration is. Whether you’re talking about the border, whether you’re talking about China, whether you’re talking about the price of oil, it’s really quite extraordinary what’s going on.”
Trump reversed a number of Obama’s directives. The world didn’t end. Biden’s border policy is almost as restrictive, and yet Republicans keep saying he’s allowing them to waltz across the border by the hundreds of thousands. The country and the economy hasn’t come crashing down. Biden doesn’t have his head up China’s ass, and gas and oil prices are not destroying America. It’s really nothing extraordinary going on that hasn’t happened before. What’s really going on, is a Republican party – aided and abetted by it’s sycophantic media, i.e. Fox News, Newsmax, OAN – perpetuating a pandemic that may never end, while shamelessly blaming the Democrats; perpetuating the myth that the election was stolen, that did indeed inspire a mob; perpetuating the myth that Biden and the Democratic party are destroying the country, while they continue to lie about the vaccines and people continue to die. That’s what’s going on.
Lane reminded the blockhead that Trump inspired a mob to attack the Capitol.

Covidiots are everywhere, and it seems America, more than any other nation, is full of them. They’re our friends, our neighbors, and our family members. And unfortunately, all too many of them are either Trump supporters, and/or rabid consumers of far right-wing media such as Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax.
They are also regular consumers of so-called conservative news sites like Breitbart, the Gateway Pundit, World Net Daily, Townhall, and Right-Wing News, all of which are nothing more than sources of misinformation and crackpot conspiracy theories. During the Obama years, the conspiracies ranged from Birtherism and FEMA camps, to complete and total gun confiscation. These days, under socialist Joe Biden, it’s complete and total authoritarian control through vaccine mandates which are designed to strip patriotic Americans – Trump conservatives who love the Constitution – of their right to spread COVID to whomever they please.
On a recent appearance with Brett Baier, the editor of the Federalist blamed the Democrats for prolonging the pandemic.
From Media Matters:
Mollie Hemmingway ( Fox News Contributor ): “We know we want people to be vaccinated and/or have natural immunity in order to slow down the spread as we move from this pandemic being something that’s very horrific to deal with, to just something you deal with every year like the flu.
“That data has not been shared. And I think it’s because it’s been politically advantageous, certainly the Democratic party has benefitted quite a bit from this electorally, being able to push through spending packages, and so you see them trying to continue the pandemic, pushing boosters – again, based on bad data – while the rest of the country is engaging in college football games each weekend and moving on as, you know, we have gotten through a lot of the natural immunity or vaccination with this.”
It’s conservatives like Hemmingway who really want people to be vaccinated and/or have natural immunity to the virus, because it’s the only way to slow down the spread and end the pandemic, or at the very least, if enough people get it, they will develop natural immunity to it, so that it will be no more deadly than the flu. God knows the data really shows that COVID is no different than the regular flu. God knows the CDC is deliberately hiding that information because it benefits the Democrats electorally to prolong the pandemic by trying to cram all of their commie infrastructure bills through Congress, and attempting to cram more booster shots down our throats while they simultaneously force us to wear masks! Meanwhile, the rest of us are calmly moving on, watching football games, stuffing our faces with Pappa John’s Pizza and celebrating freedom and liberty in America while the Democrats try to do everything they can to crash the COVID party!
Hemmingway is an editor of the Federalist, a conservative news publication that has previously published false COVID and election fraud claims.
There have been many idiots at Fox News over the years. They’ve come and they’ve gone. But none of them have been as dumb as Rachel Compost-Duffy. She takes first prize in the category of stupid. Every time she appears on camera, she takes stupidity to a whole new level.
She recently criticized the so-called “vaccine mandate” – that really isn’t a mandate, since anyone is free to refuse a vaccine as long as they agree to get tested regularly – by the tyrannical Biden administration as an all out attack on freedom and the Constitution.
“Make no mistake,” she told the rubes, working them into a frenzy. “Joe Biden has declared war on freedom yesterday and took authoritarianism to a whole new level by forcing vaccines on millions of Americans. Biden threw the Constitution out the window as he issued medical mandates for federal employees, schools and even private businesses, but apparently Kamala Harris didn’t get the memo.”
She played a clip of VP Harris saying, “When people are able to make choices without government interference, for themselves in terms of well-being and the well-being of their family in consultation with whomever they choose – we are a stronger society.”
“Now the vice president wasn’t talking about the vaccines,” Compost-Duffy said, “as she supports those mandates. No, no, no, she was defending abortion and doubling down on the administrations war on the unborn. Now Kamala clearly doesn’t know what is going on at the White House and is incapable of staying on message. But don’t let her incompetence fool you. The Biden administration is fully aware of what they are doing and the malicious intent behind these mandates.”
Apparently it’s Compost-Duffy who hasn’t received the memo, and has no idea herself what is going on at the White House. Again, employees are free to refuse vaccination as long as they are tested, but Duffy neglects to mention this little fact.
Regarding VP Harris’s remarks. She made these at a meeting with the Gender Policy Council, which had nothing to do with vaccine mandates, but fighting unconstitutional laws currently being enacted in Texas and other states.
To Dimwits like Compost-Duffy, refusing to get vaccinated is a noble cause, resisting tyranny from a government, she believes, wants to control you through vaccines, masks, social distancing and lockdowns. The coronavirus, according to experts like her, came from China, so observing any of these health guidelines, will apparently turn us all Chinese.
However, banning abortion is not big government intruding in your privacy, is not government tyranny. The right to refuse to wear a mask so I can cough in your face and spread my germs all over you, without government telling me I can’t, is government tyranny, and trumps your right to an abortion, libtard!
On his recent Monday night show, Tucker Carlson urged his viewers to call authorities when they see people wearing masks outside, and to notify child protective services when they see children wearing masks, which is just as repulsive as a person farting in Wal-Mart.
“Only neurotic people wear masks in public,” he told the rubes. “And guess what, they’re always liberals. No conservative would be caught dead wearing a mask. Liberals would, because they’re liberals, they think masks actually protect you from germs. How neurotic are they? That’s how neurotic they are.
“Well, we know a Pew survey from last March found that 64% of white liberals have been diagnosed with a mental health condition ( no such survey exists ). You see them everywhere you walk down a street in a major city, you can’t get away from them, they’re like zombies from the Walking Dead, in this case imploring you to wear a mask, as opposed to wanting to eat your brain when president Obama was in the White House.
“These angry Biden voters will accost you at every turn, snorting at you in anger, telling you to wear a mask. How could you? They’re saying from behind the gauze.
How could you? That’s the question you should be asking them. How could you force me to wear a mask? Don’t you know masks don’t work?
“So, next time you see a liberal in a mask trying to hold you down and force a mask on you, don’t hesitate. Tell them politely but firmly, get off me pervert! I don’t want your mask! Masks are for liberals. I’m a conservative. We don’t believe in masks. And would you please take off your mask? There’s no science to prove it prevents germs from spreading. In fact, your mask is making me sick!
“You should do that,” he continued. “And you need to keep doing it until wearing a mask anywhere is as socially acceptable as passing wind around others in an elevator. It’s a repulsive, don’t do it around others because it stinks, and so does wearing a mask.
“As for forcing children to wear a mask outside, that should be a crime. Your response when you see children wearing masks, should be no different than someone passing wind next to you in Wal-Mart. It’s repulsive, it stinks, don’t do it around others, and you should call the police immediately. Contact child protective services and keep calling until someone arrives. If no one comes, if they think you’re the crazy one, well, it’s on them. It’ll be their fault if the child dies from having to wear a mask. It’s child abuse and you’re morally obligated to report it.”
Things got even stranger when he brought on Matt Walsh for his opinion. Carlson accused liberals of being freaks for wanting to destroy children by forcing them to wear masks, should be ashamed of themselves, and asked Walsh why ordinary people were not demanding answers.
“This just goes to show you the power the left has,” Walsh said. “They been able to convince everyone that there are fifty different shades of genders, that Antifa is just an idea, the moon is made of green eggs and ham and was actually created not by God, but by Dr. Seuss, that Dr. Seuss hasn’t been cancelled, that conservatives aren’t persecuted like the Christians in biblical times, and that masks actually work. They’re experts at convincing you that they know what’s best for you and you should believe everything they tell you because they’re the experts, don’t you dare contradict them, or they’ll cancel you and ban you from society.
“You know, this reminds me of a recent encounter I had in Austin a few days ago. I was walking outside without a mask on and people were staring at me like I’m the crazy one for not having a mask on. All I had on was a pair of diapers, and they’re looking at me like I’m nuts or something. It was my favorite pair of diapers. I wear them almost everywhere I go, to prove how silly liberals look when they wear masks. I started wearing them last year since the pandemic. In fact, I’m wearing them now. Let me show you.”
Walsh was about to stand up and unzip, but Carlson stopped him. “Pease put that thing away,” he said with a sheepish grin. “We don’t do that here.”
“As I was saying,” Walsh continued, “they’re my favorite pair. They were given to me by Charlie Kirk. In fact, everyone I know has a pair, Dana Loesch, Glenn Beck, Ted Nugent – and everyone at the Daily Wire has a pair. They have the TPUSA logo in gold sewn into the seam, are washable, can be worn more than a thousand times, and are comfortable to wear.
“So, as I was saying, they were looking at me like I was crazy. They were a young-looking couple, probably in their late twenties, so I said to them, ‘This is what you liberals look like wearing your masks,’ and the guy said to me, ‘Dude, we’re wearing masks, you’re wearing a diaper. There’s no comparison.’
“As they laughed, I shook my head and walked away thinking the silly liberals just didn’t get it. If you’re the one walking outside with a mask on, I should be looking at you like you’re the crazy one, like I would look at a grown man hugging a teddy bear, wearing a woman’s teddy, playing with a Barbie doll, sucking on a pacifier, and wearing a diaper – while walking down the street. You’re wearing a mask. That’s your security blanket, and that’s insane to me.”
Carlson nodded in agreement. Then shook his head.
“I agree with you completely. What’s this world coming to when a person can’t walk down a street wearing a diaper without being looked at like they’re some kind of kook? But can wear a mask and no one says anything!? What is that?”
“That’s right,” Carlson said. “It’s worse than someone passing wind next to you in Wal-Mart. It’s disgusting. It’s repulsive. It stinks. Cut it out. Please don’t don’t do that here, and if you do, we’ll call the police immediately.”
On the April 14 edition of the Ingraham Angle, Laura Ingraham told Texas Republican race-baiting clown Allen West – who back in December released a statement calling for Texas to secede because the SC wouldn’t nullify legal votes for Biden – that the mainstream media is telling black people, giving them the message that “you’re going to be shot if you’re pulled over, so run!”
“That’s part of a Marxist propaganda tool that the left is using,” the GOP clown agreed with her.
I have never heard a single left-leaning corporate media news anchor or commentator telling black men, or sending them a subtle message, that cop’s are going to shoot them if they don’t run. There have however, been many conservative media commentators – Ingraham among them – who have told their viewers time and time again, that police are non-violent, that black people are violent, are thugs and criminals, who want to riot and loot, and kill people. They send this message to their viewers when they tell them that Black Lives Matter are violent, that they’re terrorists, when they talk about black on black crime.
They’re not all running away. Jacob Blake didn’t run. He attempted to enter his vehicle. George Floyd didn’t run, neither did he resist arrest. If he did, it must have been while Chauvin had his knee pressed firmly into his neck.
Those who are running from the police, just might be doing so because they know that if they don’t run away, it’s because they know they will be killed. It is law enforcement that is sending this message, and it is clowns like Laura Ingraham that enable it.
Conservative media pundits have often claimed that liberals and leftists never let a good opportunity go to waste… or something of that nature.
Conservative themselves never let a good opportunity go to waste. With conservatives, it’s Antifa. It’s how violent, radical and extreme the Democratic party is, the left and liberals. They totally ignore and pretend as if their own party, their own movement is completely patriotic and supporting of liberty – instead of the radical and extreme party that it really is – freedom and free speech, while hyping and over-exaggerating the anti-fascists and anti-racists as the real threat to free speech and democracy.
It’s called gaslighting. Making someone doubt or question their perception of reality, and conservatives have mastered it to a fine art. All one has to do is watch a segment of Tucker Carlson or Laura Ingraham discussing Black Lives Matter and Antifa. BLM and Antifa – both leftist, anti-fascist and anti-racists – are “thugs, criminals, and terrorists.” While conservatives – no matter how violent they are, such as those who marched in the Unite The Right rally, or murdered BLM protesters – are “law-abiding,” “very fine people,” and “heros.”
During a segment of her broadcast last week, Laura Ingraham tried really hard to convince the rubes that the Democrats are hell-bent on “criminalizing all Trump supporters as “terrorists.”
“The January 06 Capitol riot was a gift to Democrats,” she said smugly. “It gave them the video in the narrative that they’ve desperately wanted and they needed to justify a crackdown on the civil liberties of all conservatives.
“However, you don’t need hearings to know that dedicated men and women of the Capitol police were overwhelmed and unprepared for a breach.”
Only pro-Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol, had gotten inside, and ransacked it… have been charged with crimes ranging from felonies to misdemeanors. No one who stood by and simply watched , have been arrested that I know of. There has been no attempt to criminalize Trump supporters who protest peacefully, as there was with BLM protesters over the summer. These people have not had their civil liberties cracked down on, and neither have they been criminalized as terrorists. And one doesn’t need hearings to know that Capitol police were unprepared by design. It was obvious to anyone who knew what to expect from months of Trump, Republicans, and right-wing media pundits like Ingraham, complaining about mail-in ballots, and election fraud.
She said what happened at the Capitol was “despicable, criminal and infuriating,” but compared to other armed insurrections, “this one was pretty lame. And the loss of life that occured that day is still shrouded in mystery… from the get-go, the media saw this tragic day as an opportunity to tar the entire Trump coalition as a bunch of heinous terrorists… we still don’t know anything about the cause of officer Sicknick’s death, but we do know the entire life story of the idiot in the buffalo get up and face paint.”
A riot that resulted in at least five deaths, and injuries – most of them police officers – was shrouded in mystery and pretty lame? We may not yet know the exact cause of Sicknick’s death, but he was killed by the actions of a pro-Trump mob – that’s no mystery.
“If you voted for Trump, if you ever attended a Trump rally or posted support for his America First agenda, you’re complicit in the attack and you need to be shunned from society, lose your job, and you need to be banned from social media indefinitely. Make no mistake about it. What we’re witnessing at all levels of society run by liberals is a new Red Scare. But instead of targeting Marxists or communists, they’re fighting Americans in red states.”
If Ingraham wants to complain about people having their civil liberties violated and criminalized as terrorists, perhaps she should talk about Antifa and BLM protesters – an entire movement of social activists – who she and her colleagues at Fox News have never had any trouble tarring as criminals and terrorists over the years, and were quick and eager to blame for the violence at the Capitol. But she will never do that. She will never defend actual patriots who want law enforcement officers who commit murder, to be held accountable under the law, as those they murder are held accountable. She will never defend real patriots who want government to be less corrupt. She will always equate them to fascists because she is a fascist. Misrepresenting actual patriots as anti-American, and equating terrorists as patriots, that’s what authoritarians do. Antifa are the real fascists… and the Trump supporting mob that proudly wave those Confederate and Nazi flags at his rallies, and the shooters who have listened to his rhetoric and the rhetoric of the totally non-violent and non-racist Republican party, and their media allies like Ingraham… are the real patriots, the real pro-Americans with their America First agenda, which is an agenda first used by the Klan. So, yes, if you support it, then you are indeed complicit in the assault on the Washington Capitol.
Ingraham had this to say about who really may have been behind the Capitol riot. Calling into Fox News, she said:
“We knew this would happen when you had a huge group of people descending on Capitol Hill, when you have members of Trump support organizations and Antifa threatening to show up at the same time. We’ll learn more to the extent that that happened. I’m getting a sense that there’s clearly a big split in the MAGA groups that have come to peacefully protest with whoever is behind this intrusion in the Capitol, which by any account is unacceptable.”
On her broadcast that night, she said, “They were likely not all Trump supporters. I’ve never seen Trump rally attendees wearing helmets, black helmets, brown helmets, black backpacks – the uniforms you saw in some of those crowd shots.”
Ingraham says the Democrats want to criminalize people who voted for Trump, for attending any of his rallies, or supporting his America First agenda, and are complicit in the Capitol riot, should be shunned from society, lose their jobs, and be banned indefinitely from social media.
I would say: anyone who attended any of his rallies and listened to the violent and racist rhetoric, saw the Confederate flags flying freely and stayed silent.
Anyone who listened to his rhetoric about Charlottesville Nazis and neo-Confederates as ‘very fine people’ and did not condemn it.
Anyone who saw the Nazi flags displayed and did not speak up, did not question their presence.
Anyone who has no problem with symbols of white supremacy remaining in a society – that conservatives swear is no longer racist – as nothing more than “Southern heritage or pride.”
Anyone who has no problem calling Antifa – anti-fascists – and Black Lives Matter “terrorists,” but revere white shooters who murder peaceful protesters as “heros.
Anyone’s reaction to a black president speaking on matters of race: “Why is he playing the race card?” ( the idea that black people have no right to speak about race without accusations of playing the “race card” is absurd ). But giving a white president a free lifetime pass on the race card.
And finally, I would say: anyone – anyone, including Trump’s media lapdogs – who repeated the rhetoric and conspiracy theories of a stolen election – Dominion, George Soros, the ghost of Hugo Chavez, all of that shit – who egged on and riled up the assholes to get out in the streets with their “stop the steal” signs and chants, culminating in the ransacking of democracy and the Capitol.
These people are complicit in the raiding and the ransacking of the Capitol. They shouldlose their jobs, and they should be banned from social media forever. These people participated in a coup to interfere in a democratic election simply because their favorite narcissistic egomaniac didn’t get re-elected. These people should be treated like pariahs. It has nothing whatsoever to do with criminalizing ordinary, innocent Americans who are guilty for no other reason than voting for Trump.
After the seditious rebellion against democracy on Wednesday, conservatives in the media have been whitewashing the event by either justifying or making excuses for what happened. They have also denied any culpability, blaming the left, Antifa, and even Joe Biden and the Democrats.
Charles Hurt, Washington Times’ opinion editor and Fox News contributor, told Fox And Friends that Democrats were to blame for what happened at the Capitol.
“I get this rush to want to blame everything on President Trump. Everything that is going on right now has been in the making for years and decades, of which politicians on Capitol Hill have been a part. The last thing they want to do is take stock of themselves and try to figure out, ‘OK, what have I done to make this worse or to create this situation?’ “
Excuse me? How exactly is this the fault of the Democrats? It wasn’t the Democrats who stirred the MAGA morons into a frenzy for months by lying to them about a fraudulent election. It wasn’t Democrats who claimed that mail-in ballots were fraudulent. It wasn’t the Democrats that fed them baseless conspiracy theories about voting machines, about George Soros, about Venezuela, and Hugo Chavez helping Joe Biden steal the election.
It was Donald Trump, his cronies, his lawyers, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Judy Riuliani, and the one hundred plus Republican senators who went along and encouraged his BS. They are to blame. Right-wing media, Fox News, Newsmax, OANN, and the conservative pundits who repeated his BS claims, are also complicit. They are responsible. This does not fall on the Democrats.
Hurt said that within seconds of reconvening on Wednesday night, Democrats on Capitol Hill couldn’t wait to “accuse Republicans of treason and sedition.”
“Every ounce of hope we had that maybe this would be a unifying moment, we can come out of this stronger, just completely went out the window,” Hurt said.
You see, it wasn’t in the spirit of unifying that conservatives are supposedly so fond of, because Democrats demanded that Trump be removed via the 25th amendment, or impeachment. According to Hurt, they were so caught up in their “own mob mentality,” trying to outdo each other in their insane charges of sedition or treason, which has nothing to do with unifying or healing the division that “they” created.
Hurt concluded that both parties should do some soul-searching. However, it was clear that the Democrats who created this mess, had no intention of doing so, certainly not Sleepy Joe, or Kamala Harris.
Just what exactly we’re conservatives expecting the Democrats to do? Shake their hands and thank them for attempting a f***ing coup? Join hands and sing Kumbaya? Rioters had just stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stop the certification of a democratic election because their candidate lost! And it’s on the Democrats to call for unity? I don’t f***ing think so.
Where was the concern for unity from the Republicans when Trump was riling up the MAGA Morons? Where was the call for unity from the brown nosers in media, the Sean Hannity’s, the Laura Ingraham’s, the Jeanine Pirros? All we heard from them was how King Donald was the rightful heir to the throne of God and how the corrupt Democrats were stealing it from him. Did any of them pause in their frothing at the mouth for any “soul-searching”?
Did it occur to Donald Trump to do a little “soul-searching” as to what part he played in an attempted coup? Have the Republicans in Congress paused spitting on the Constitution and democracy to do their own “soul-searching” as to what part they played in subverting democracy?
I guarantee you… not a f***ing chance. For the next four years, they will be blaming the Capitol riot on Joe Biden and the Democrats. That’s what they do best, deny responsibility when at fault and blame everyone else, just as Trump did every time he f***ed up.
Fox News’s resident Doofus, Rachel Campost-Duffy appeared on the November 29th edition of Fox And Friends to demonstrate how brilliant and insightful she is.
Last time we visited her, she was claiming that face masks to limit the spread of the coronavirus were part of a sinister plan to take away our personal liberty, courtesy of the radical socialist Democrats in cahoots with communist China.
This time, she’s back to convince the rubes who watch Fox News, that Pope Francis is a Marxist and part of a sinister cabal to further limit their freedoms because he had the audacity to say the poor and the sick should be treated with dignity.
From Media Matters:
“Well it was sad because for me as a Catholic to be honest,” Campost-Duffy said. “That op-ed came out on the same day we had a huge religious liberty victory in our Supreme Court. And here we had the Pope come out and call those who were, you know, like Cardinal Dolan and other Catholics who were celebrating this, he called it selfish for, you know, standing up for our liberties during this pandemic. And then he started parroting these really creepy globalist slogans. I think he even mentioned “build back better.” He talked about climate change. Never talked about religious freedom. And then started talking – again, going back to our conversation about socialism. He started promoting, as so many other globalists have, this “great reset,” using the pandemic to advance, you know, reordering our economic system. And I would say to you that the problem in America is not capitalism. We know the Pope is a socialist. The problem in America is that capitalism was always meant to be tempered by morality and ethics and that’s what I wish my Pope would step in and talk about that because that’s what’s lacking in America and in the world. Capitalism is a wonderful thing but it does need Christian ethics, you know, Judeo-Christan ethics to temper it.”
The Pope said nothing controversial in his op-ed. He did not parrot any “creepy globalist slogans” like “build back better,” nor did he mention a “Great Reset.”
The first part of the quote Fox And Friends displayed was: “We cannot return to the false securities of the political and economic systems we had before the crisis. We need economies that give to all access to the fruits of creation, to the basic needs of life: to land, lodging and labor.”
The remainder of the quote they didn’t show, was: “We need a politics that can integrate and dialogue with the poor, the excluded and the vulnerable, that gives people a say in the decisions that affect their lives. We need to slow down, take stock and design better ways of living together on this earth.”
Only conservatives could take these words – that criticize an economic system that fails to meet the basic needs of its citizens, that calls for an economic system that benefits everyone, that meets everyone’s basic needs to life, that excludes no one – and turn them into a conspiracy, a commie plot to institute “Nazi-style restrictions on American citizens,” and “build prison camps for dissenters who refuse to accept microchips.” They are conditioned to believe this nonsense by right-wing media with scary buzz words like “socialism”, “communism,” and associating them with taking from others, while being conditioned to believe that capitalism is the solution to all of their economic woes.
The government had the opportunity to meet the basic needs of its citizens during the pandemic. It failed. All they could provide was a meager 1,200 in economic relief, and the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program – a part of the CARES Act – expires at the end of December. It’s almost a certainty there will be no new aid. The government cares more about helping corporations and the wealthy – giving them billions in aid, while throwing the dogs crumbs – than they do the working class citizen. This is capitalism. This is the economic system that conservatives think is such a wonderful thing, that provides equal opportunity to all. Anyone who dares criticize it as insufficient to meet the basic needs of its citizens, conservatives will inevitably call that person a socialist or a Marxist, even the Pope, who is not a socialist.
From Gant Daily News, “The ‘Obamification Of PopeFrancis”:
Denise McAlister, a senior contributor to the Federalist, a conservative online magazine that covers politics, religion, and culture, said the Pope’s “social justice schemes” ( like advocating for the rights of the poor ) are immoral and similar to Obama’s “socialist ideology.”
Anyone who actually bothered to look into Obama’s policies, would know that he was anything but a socialist or a Marxist.
McAlister wrote that Catholics have a responsibility to care for the poor, “but the greatest vehicle for alleviating poverty and deprivation is the very institution of free market capitalism that the Pope now denounces. He says people have a right to land, lodging, and labor,” McAlister told CNN. “When you’re talking about giving to one, you’re talking about taking from another. It’s wrong and immoral for a powerful government to take property from you and give it to another group.”
From The Socialist Appeal – “World Poverty: Capitalism’s Crime Against Humanity”:
Today we produce enough food for 10bn people, while millions starve. Companies and tax havens sit on a cash pile of trillions of uninvested dollars that could be used to revolutionize production, tackle climate change and provide decent and sustainable living conditions for all. None of this is inevitable; it is the product of a system that draws the profit of the few from the poverty of the many. But this can be stopped.
If capitalism is the greatest vehicle for alleviating poverty, there are hundreds of thousands of people who are homeless. Capitalism has not alleviated this problem. It is a symptom of capitalism, not a solution.
People should have a right to land, lodging and labor. This should not be controversial, but it is to conservatives. They can’t seem to wrap their minds around someone less fortunate receiving something without it being taken from someone else, such as the wealthy and the more privileged. They view taxes in the same way, taking from the wealthy and giving it to those lazy welfare moochers.
The Pope said nothing about taking from others when mentioning the basic needs of human beings. If you’re someone who believes that giving to one is taking from another, such as believing that taxes are theft, then you are either stupid or are appealing to stupid people.
Back to Campost-Duffy: The Pope made no mention of the Great Reset, a book by Klaus Schwab, nor did he mention the words build back better. She either didn’t bother to read the op-ed, or lied to convince the rubes that the Pope is a socialist.
Other pet peeves of hers is that he talked about climate change, instead of religious liberty, and criticized anyone who would dare stand up to the tyranny of the Democrats who are threatening to arrest and imprison anyone who believes that COVID is a hoax and that wearing masks are part of a plot to put conservatives in prison camps.
The reason he brought up climate change is because it’s a serious threat, as is the coronavirus. Religious liberty has never been threatened, and has never been under attack, as much as conservatives like to crow that it is.
The Pope said this about those who have refused to follow COVID restrictions: “With some exceptions, governments have made great effort to put the well-being of their people first, acting decisively to protect health and to save lives. The exceptions have have been some governments that have shrugged off the painful evidence of mounting deaths, with inevitable, grevious consequences. But most governments acted responsibly, imposing strict measures to contain the outbreak. Yet some groups protested, refusing to keep their distance, marching against travel restrictions – as if measures that governments must impose for the good of their people constitute some kind of political assault on autonomy or personal freedom!
There have been 281,253 deaths associated with COVID. Conservatives like Campost-Duffy don’t care how many people die. They’ve proven they don’t care, by urging their viewers to disregard pandemic restrictions as tyranny. Like I’ve previously said, they are complicit in these deaths, and if and when it ever ends, they will cling to their fantasies that the Trump administration handled it admirably, and pretend that Biden had been the one who failed, and acted indifferently.
In an Ingraham Angle exclusive, Laura Ingraham has proven without a shadow of a doubt that Democrats and the left have committed massive voter fraud to keep America’s rightful heir – Donald “Abraham Lincoln” Trump – from a second term in the White House!
“The whistleblower, whose identity was hidden and whose voice was modified at her request, told our intrepid journalist Laura Ingraham that she noticed white envelopes being passed around and ripped open near a Biden – Harris Van while on a walk during her lunch break. The envelope handlers then leaned against the side of the van in order to mark the papers, which she recognized as ballots.
“As I got closer, I thought, ‘those are ballots,’ ” she said. “I walked by four or five times. On the next time I walked by, they were putting them in the envelopes. They were putting them in white and pink envelopes.”
As the brave witness realized something fishy was going on, she claimed a “human wall” was formed to obstruct the view of anyone who might be looking on and wondering what they were doing, but apparently it didn’t do any good because she managed to somehow see everything. She then confessed to Ingraham that it terrified her.
She claims to have released a sworn affidavit to the Trump campaign disclosing what she witnessed.
State officials in Nevada denied any evidence of voter fraud and Democratic AG Aaron Ford referred to the Trump campaign legal efforts as “garbage”.
“A sworn declaration from an eyewitness is the literal definition of evidence,” a Trump campaign attorney said in a statement. “Those on the left and in other quarters that have been screaming that there’s no evidence will need new talkers and most importantly, will have to now focus on the legitimate issues that have been raised.”
No, a sworn declaration is not evidence, it’s hearsay. Hearsay is not permitted as actual evidence in court. Actual evidence is permitted in a court, not hearsay, not opinions, and not butthurt feelings because a certain candidate lost an election, a candidate who won the previous e!section, despite crying about voter fraud.
As for “the left screaming that there is no evidence,” it has actually been the Trump team and his allies in the media that have been screaming… about voter fraud, and offering no evidence. To which the left has responded,”Put up or shut up.” The Trump team, so far, has yet to put up.
A sampling of supposed charges of “voter fraud” from Republicans submitted in affidavits range from “feeling intimidated by union people who were staring at her,” according to one poll watcher. A Democratic poll worker told a Trump snowflake to, “go back to the suburbs, Karen.” Another said a P. A. system was too distracting. Another complaint has been that Republicans have not been permitted to observe the voting process, when in fact they have.
From the New York Times:
“On election day, Republican lawyers acknowledged in court that the party’s observers were present at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia when votes were being counted.
“I’m sorry, then what’s your problem?” Judge Paul Diamond of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania asked.
And from the Wired:
“In at least one instance, Trump lawyers have flat-out acknowledged that they’re not actually alleging fraud despite the president’s insistence. On Tuesday, in a case involving over 592 disputed ballots in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania – where Biden ( at the time ) leads by more than 130,000 votes – judge Richard Haas pressed Trump re-election campaign lawyer Johnathan Goldstein.
“Are you claiming that there is any fraud in connection with these 592 ballots?”
“To my knowledge at present, no,” Goldstein responded.
While on the subject of voting, it bears to mention that there is one political party that regularly engages in gerrymandering and voter suppression, and it’s not the Democratic party.
When they’re not doing voter suppression tactics, they’re either involved in voter fraud themselves, or crying about Democrats doing the same. Kayleigh McEnany and Ronna McDaniels gave a recent embarrassing press conference charging election fraud. It was so embarrassing, Fox’s Neil Cavuto refused to air it. They repeated all of the nonsense from the Trump team, while presenting no evidence.
Back in 2016, McEnany criticized those who questioned Trump’s election victory. On a CNN segment she said,”You have people out there calling for recounts that are unsubstantiated, based on no evidence. You have Jill Stein coming on our network an hour or so ago suggesting there were hacks or potentially hacks, and ‘we won’t know until we count the votes.’ There are people trying to deligitimize the president” ( like Trump and Republicans did with Obama all through his two terms ) “elect.”
Now, four years later, after laughing at Trump’s critics, McEnany and other Republicans want us to take them seriously. The Trump team has gone to court with their frivolous claims of voter fraud, and have had nearly every case dismissed. But they won’t let that stop them. They will continue to whine and complain baselessly about fraud just because they can’t accept the fact that their boy – or in this case, man-child – lost, and they will do anything to sow doubt in the minds of the fringe, and that includes Laura Ingraham, and other right-wing media figures staging ridiculous segments like the one above – which also includesgiving credence to Project Veritas, a so-called undercover news organization that deliberately lies about everything they investigate – to deceive the rubes who watch them into believing that Trump was robbed as the rightful heir to the throne.
Hillary Clinton and the Democrats didn’t behave this immature after the last election, but the Republicans have no shame. They will continue behaving like snowflakes for a long time to come.
