While Bill O'Reilly is said, by Jon Stewart, to be full of shit, the same could be said of Stephen Crowder who might have surpassed Brad Stine in the category of most incoherent and offensive right wing ideologue guest on Fox & Friends. Unlike other Fox jokers (Miller, Carolla), comedian and no longer virgin Crowder has never had a national spotlight. But he's getting one on Fox where he is allowed to spew his venom towards "leftists" who support abortion rights, gay marriage, and a tax system that provides for our most vulnerable. And in advancing the right wing meme that our tax system (which benefits the rich who are paying their lowest taxes since the 50's) steals from the productive to reward slackers, Jesus BFF Crowder has no qualms about attacking those on public assistance which includes his Fox & Friends promotion of the bogus "Obamaphone." But just when you think he can't get any more craven, he appeared on this morning's Fox & Friends where he provided an almost uninterrupted three minute "lesson" in "redistribution" using children.
Good Christian Crowder, who once did a video which featured a Nancy Pelosi character being waterboarded, was warmly introduced by Fox friend and Maltese Knight, Peter Johnson Jr. Crowder proclaimed that "economic leftism is immoral" and that "it is wrong to steal from one person to pay another person who hasn't earned it." Video was shown of Crowder taking candy from some kids Halloween bags to put in bags of other kids who didn't have as much. The chyron informed us that "Kids Upset With Halloween Tax Lesson." After the video, Johnson and Crowder joked about Crowder's monkey costume. Johnson asked if Crowder was saying that his little demonstration is "analogous to what is going on in the United States and that people have a visceral reaction that they want their stuff and if they've earned it they want to keep it and they don't want to give it away."
Political polymath Crowder (not) said that "it's a matter of how wealth is being redistributed regardless of the social issues of the left of aborting babies or the destruction of the American family, it's fundamentally immoral to steal from someone to pay someone else's kids. Out of the mouths of babes, they recognize good and evil, they can delineate between right and wrong." As the chyron read "Taxed to the Maxed, Spreading the Weath, Halloween Style." (The misspelling of wealth is taken directly from the chyron), Crowder angrily noted that "the biggest criticism of this video is so you're saying that conservatives are selfish like these kids."
He continued to rant "why do leftists consider for that kid who put on a costume, trick or treated for three hours to keep his candy but it's not selfish for the kid next to him to want to take his candy and run off." He asked "why is it selfish for me to want to work my whole life and be able to keep what I've earned; but leftists don't consider it selfish for someone else for someone else to want to take what I've earned." He repeated how "immoral" this is and accused "the leftists" of being "fundamentally too stupid to understand the concept of selfishness" or they understand the concept but are "lying to the American people to try and manipulate it to make it fit their ideology."
As the chyron summarized the Fox message: "The 99% Halloween, Crowder Gives Lessons in Redistribution," he challenged those who disagree with him to find him on Twitter. For those who want to take him up on this, here is the link.
So Crowder compares redistributing Halloween candy, which would outrage kids, to the outrage over our tax system. Real clever. But let me get this straight. In Crowder's perfect Christian dystopia, women would be forced to have babies they can't afford and then be left with no safety net. And forget about providing a social safety net for those families who are left jobless and homeless from the recession. Any assistance to these non-earners is "stealing" from folks like Crowder. And let's stop funding FEMA because it's "stealing" money from Crowder in order to help those who just might be helping those "selfish" folks who are on public assistance. And yeah, Steven, if you think that taxes that go to social safety net programs are theft, you are not only selfish but shameless! And so is Fox News for promoting what is real "class warfare."
But I digress……fuck you, Crowder.
Well, yeah. Because in crowder’s perfect christian dystopia, those women who happen to be single and get pregnant are nothing but sluts who don’t deserve the safety net. Good neocon christian girls NEVER EVER EVER NEVER have sex out of wedlock, doncha know.
Throw this gem at them and spread to all the masses:
We know the Fox “News” frauds reside in the New York area, an area wrecked Hurricane Sandy. FEMA is in the area helping residents. Noticed that none of these frauds mentioned cutting FEMA.
Cue sound affect: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk_-XWpUFmU
The Stop Hannity Express encourage all the masses to publicly contact Crowder and ask him this gem of a question: “Do you believe FEMA should be cut?” Do you agree with Mitt Romney?"
Ask the same question to all of the Fox “News” frauds and King Mitt.
Write letters to the editor and write commentary telling the masses that Romney plans to cut FEMA.
Viral this video to all the masses immediately!
Mitt Romney To Eliminate FEMA!
Mitt Romney Ignores Questions About FEMA
Those affected by future disasters will be up the creek with no paddle if King Romney is president. The masses will be on their own.
… while rape is “legitimate.”
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present: your modern GOP.
P.S. — So, Crowder used kids in his “lesson” on wealth redistribution? I suppose Steve wasn’t upset the time President Obama addressed schoolchildren, was he? I mean, I’d hate to think Crowder would be accused of “indoctrinating” children . . .
That was called “sharing”, not “stealing”.
Fox News is really scraping the barrel. I wonder if this little stunt might not have been staged since one of the kids doesn’t talk like a kid but more like Crowder (in Fox-speak).
But this is one idea the selfish folks of the right wing despise as supporting the weak and lazy. They try to uphold selfishness as a virtue and supporting the poor as immoral. Being taxed is stealing. They try to compare a treat like candy to basic food and shelter. And this is just the beginning of the segment.
