Fox And Friends Outsource Smears To Comedian Brad Stine Again

Reported by Aunty Em - November 15, 2011 -

Proving they learned absolutely nothing from the Hank Williams, Jr. fiasco—when he blurted out that President Obama was the enemy, leading to Williams being forcibly retired as ESPN’s Football Readyist—those Foxy Friends on Fox and Friends dragged out comedian Brad Stine for his weekly attack on the left. [Does two Mondays in a row on Fox “News” constitute “weekly”?] After last week’s appearance Priscilla noted that Stine, “as a youth, led the ‘carny life’ and went on to doing stand-up. After his conversion to Christianity, he made his faith the focus of his acts. Because he's a Christian, he doesn't use profanity… He founded ‘God Men’ a Christian group that emphasizes ‘spiritual Christianity’ and who ‘give thanks’ to God for their testosterone.” Yet, despite his proclaimed deep faith in Christianity, Stine demonstrated none of the compassion and charity that one might expect from Jesus, even a Jesus with balls. No matter. Stine was brought on to smear unemployed ‘Merkins as lazy people and he didn’t disappoint. Watch:

“We [Americans] believe in two things: The work ethic—puritanical work ethic—there’s DIGNITY [emphasis his] in work—and if you don’t work, you don’t eat. That’s what we used to believe in! So, we used to make it shameful not to work. Matter of fact, we called people that didn’t work HOBOS! WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HOBOS? We need to bring these people back and make them feel ashamed. But, political correctness came in and took the shame away. ‘Oh, we don’t want to make people feel bad for not working.’ YES WE DO! YOU’RE LAZY! GET TO WORK!

Leaving aside the undisputed fact that there are far more unemployed people in ‘Merka than there are jobs to fill, one is reminded of the quote attributed to Mahatma Gandhi: “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” However, Stine was clearly veering off track because the discussion was supposed to be about—as the chyron put it—“TURNING DOWN ‘DIRTY’ JOBS; AMERICANS DON’T WANT TO WORK CERTAIN PLACES,” so those Foxy Fox and Friends brought him back on point, so he could deliver an admittedly funny little routine:

“We’ve been trained not to do those jobs. We used to do it. During the Depression people took any job they can get. It’s what’s at stake. Yannow, people say Americans won’t go out in the fields and pick cabbage for 10 hours. You know why? ‘CAUSE WE HATE CABBAGE! That’s really the key. What’s the biggest problem that can happen? ‘Oh, there’s going to be a shortage of coleslaw.’ NOBODY CARES! But, you tell an American man, ‘If you don’t get on a boat for two months with the possibility of being swept aside and dying—if you don’t do that, we’re not going to have lobster anymore,’ YOU WOULD HAVE EVERYBODY SIGNING UP BECAUSE THERE’S SOMETHING AT STAKE!

Clayton Morris: That’s a good point.

Yes, Clatyon, a very good point until you spend a millisecond thinking about it. Then, like many jokes, it falls apart because its logic is only internal. While I was trying to figure out how hobos, the unemployed, or cabbage pickers could actually afford to eat lobster, it got REALLY weird:

Brian Kilmeade: I blame supermarkets. If it wasn’t for supermarkets we’d be out fishing today, right after work, and getting a gun and shooting a Fox, or something.

BS: And, skinning them and wearing them on our heads.”

BK: Exactly, because we’re cold.

While they talked of going to Central Park later in the day to kill some Fox, I couldn’t help but think they needn’t go anywhere. They were already in the biggest Fox den ever discovered.

Release the Hounds.
