Fox Nation Sources Breitbart For “Inappropriate” White House Ornaments Story

Reported by Priscilla - December 27, 2009 -

Professional crank and Drudge pal, Andrew Breitbart, has taken on the role of a modern day town crier who is channeling all the paranoid delusions of all those who brought us the Hollywood “Black List.” One assumes that Andy is a fan of “Tailgunner” Joe McCarthy, whose anti-communist rants led to what is arguably one of the darkest periods of our history. Based on Andy’s obsession about the lurking communist presence, both in Hollywood and in government, one suspects that he would love to go back to the days when denunciations by guys like Andy could ruin a career. But fortunately, Andy’s outing of the Marxist menace is relegated to his blog and Fox News which provides him with a TV forum for his right wing rants. In addition to his “face time” on Fox News, his hard hitting “exposés” of commies in the closet also get sourced by Fox News.com and Fox Nation – a website devoted to hatred of Obama and his creeping “cominterm” which is out to destroy America as we know it. But thanks to Andy and his Fox news writer pal, Maxim Lott, the “truth is out there.”

It seems like one of Breitbart’s anonymous “reporters” (“Capitol Confidential”) has exposed the ugly truth about Christmas ornaments on the White House tree. Although there are no ornaments with Islamic iconography, there is an ornament which attests to the suspicion that Barack Obama is a Marxist. Yep, one of Andy’s “sources,” took a picture of an ornament with a picture of a “tarted up” Mao Tse Tung. Ever eager to enlighten Americans about the commie pinko sympathies by the Kenyan born, illegal alien president, Andy did a report about this on his real American blog, “Big Government,” which serves to “out” those evil doers at the heart of American government. His “exclusive” showed a blurred photo of Mao which obviously proves that you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. Andy also had a photo of an ornament with nasty gay rainbow flags and a photo of drag queen, “Hedda Lettuce.” So in addition to creeping communism, the Obama administration is obviously encouraging degenerate gay sex. Obama’s egotism was also on display with an ornament showing his face on Mt. Rushmore. Breitbart notes that the White House decorations were supervised by “controversial” Simon Doonan who as the creative director of “Barney’s” in NY has done holiday windows which featured (gasp) Margaret Thatcher as a dominatrix and (gasp) Dan Quayle as a ventriloquist’s dummy. But Doonan is gay and, based on Breitbart’s obsession with Obama’s “Safe School Czar,” Kevin Jennings, Andy might have a problem with teh gay.

So not surprisingly, Fox Nation, which loves to get their village idiots all in a lather about Barack Obama, sourced Andy’s photo spread as one of today’s lede’s: “Inappropriate Ornaments Decorate White House Christmas Tree.” Not surprisingly, Fox News.com’s Maxim Lott also sourced Breitbart for his article, "White House Christmas Décor Featuring Mao Zedong Comes Under Fire.” Lott has joined the right wing, homophobic jihad (orchestrated in large part by Breitbart) against Kevin Jennings by authoring several articles, about Jennings, which were sourced from Breitbart. The “fire,” which young Maxim alludes to in the title of his article, is from “critics” of Obama’s. Obviously that includes our Andy whose “Big Government” article Lott rephrased with a few of his own tweaks including a quote from somebody at “Big Government” and a (rather risqué for Fox News) quote from “Hedda” which I thoroughly enjoyed. I did find it interesting that Lott uses the Romanized (the late Victorian “Wade Giles System”) Chinese name for Mao Tse Tung – a system that Mao replaced with another. This seems to be a right wing thing as this spelling appears in conservative magazines.

Media Matters describes this whole Breitbart kafuffle quite well – “Oh, Tannen Mao, the right wing’s Christmas Tree Freak Out.” They cite several conservative websites which ran with this Breitbart manufactured outrage and also note that Fox News’ Bret Baier mentioned this during a “Grapevine” segment. But here’s the thing – As noted by Maxim Lott, the White House sent old White House ornaments out to various schools and charities including the gay senior citizens group that Hedda is a member of. She explains her choice of ball décor: “I may never get equal rights, I may never be blond and pencil thin, I may never see Lady Gaga in concert this winter at Madison Square Garden (I could not get a ticket) but one of my balls is hanging in the White House with my name for all to see” The picture of Mao was a copy of one of Andy Warhol’s many images of Mao –21 of which (gasp) hang in Washington, D.C’s National Gallery of Art. (Does Glenn Beck know about this travesty!) And Obama on Mt. Rushmore – don’t the wingers want Reagan on the currency? But if “Capitol Confidential” broke this story, it’s all good because “Capitol Confidential are anonymous sources in the halls of power at the federal, state, and local levels. Big Government double-checks their stories and provides them the cloak they need to reveal the truth.” Looks like Breitbart’s “journalism” is as “real” and “fair and balanced” as Fox News!
