Todd Starnes is on a one man crusade against the Military Religious Freedom Foundation because it is provides a check on unconstitutional incursions of religion into the public arena. But Toddles believes that the MRFF's attempts to curb religious proselytizing, in the military, is an affront to those who just want to share Jesus with the heathens and, as such, is an attempt to "eradicate Christianity" in the armed services. I do wonder if Toddles is aware that the MRFF has just received its fifth consecutive nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize. And when he does find out about this, be prepared to pass him his fan and his sweet tea because I do believe that he will have himself a case of the vapors!
Fox News is very good at fulminating anti-Islamic bias; but, on occasion, the forces of reason prevail. In November, Megyn Kelly validated the concerns of Florida residents who objected to a world history honors textbook in the high school which, according to the protesters, was anti-Christian because it didn't provide as much space for Christian history as it did for Muslim history. Todd Starnes, on Hannity and Fox & Friends, fulminated about how the book is really Islamic "indoctrination." But despite Fox's shout out to the history deniers, the Volusia County School Board agreed that it should remain in the classroom. Score one for the forces of reason over bigotry and stupidity. Wonder if Fox will provide an update? Nah....
Paging Bill O'Reilly! There are enemies of Christmas right there at Fox News Headquarters! We've got the proof after the jump. (H/T Alex)Read more
Charles Krauthammer burst O’Reilly’s "Creeping Secular-Progressivism" balloon last night. O'Reilly tried to rile up Krauthammer over a billboard posted in Times Square saying, "Who needs Christ during Christmas? Nobody." But Krauthammer found no cause for alarm over that or any of the other "outrages" O'Reilly threw out in a futile effort to prove his "traditional values" victimhood. (H/T Andrew M.)Read more
A Greenpeace ad showing Santa Claus at a melting North Pole was the focus of a Your World discussion today. In reality, the ad was little more than an excuse to deny climate change – and smear those who don’t. The guest was Phelim McAleer, a climate-change denier. That, of course, makes him a Fox News fave.Read more
Fox News, ever on the lookout for African Americans they can racially disparage, has found a new target: MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry. With her tongue somewhat in cheek, Perry had the racial gall to make an analogy between “ObamaCare” and the N-word. At least three of Fox’s top race-baiters, Sean Hannity, Megyn Kelly and Eric Bolling, ignored the essence of Harris-Perry's commentary in order to paint her as some kind of anti-white nutjob.Read more
Elisabeth Hasselbeck Endorses Anti-Gay Discrimination Because Religious Freedom And Free Enterprise!
As the mouthpiece for the virulently homophobic religious right, it's not surprising that the "Fair & Balanced" Fox News is fully on board with propaganda about how those evil gays are just trying to ruin the livelihood of Jesus loving, homo hating Christians. In September, the gang on the Fox & Friends curvy couch were in full agreement that Christian bakers had every right to discriminate against gay bullies because, ya know, religious freedom. Flash forward to December and America's flagship show for persecuted, heterosexual Christians is now championing the cause of a Christian baker whose refusal to bake a cake for a gay couple was considered to be a violation of Colorado law. As articulated by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, in addition to this being a violation of religious freedom, it's causing "THE DEATH OF FREE ENTERPRISE!" Oh, the horror, the horror!!!Read more
Todd Starnes' world is an apocalyptic one in which Toddles and the forces of Jesus are in constant battle with the forces of darkness. Chief among Toddles' nefarious adversaries is Mikey Weinstein, head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation who, according to Toddles, is making life miserable for good Christian soldiers who just want everybody else to know about Jesus regardless of the time, place, and audience. And now that Shaw Air Force Base has, after communicating with Mr. Weinstein, taken down a Nativity Scene not connected to a chapel, Toddles is full of Southern fried indignation about how this is the latest example of Weinstein's attempt to "eradicate Christianity" from the military who, like their heathen Commander-in-Chief, hate the Baby Jesus.Read more
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas with holiday lights, music, and Bill O'Reilly's annual rant about how evil atheists are trying to destroy Christmas in order to promote their gay, abortion, and drug agendas onto innocent, Jesus loving Americans. Part of O'Reilly's "nice" tradition includes attacks on those whom Bill sees as enemies of Christmas, such as the governors of RI and Washington whose worker had to deal with harassing phone calls and mail from Bill's Jesus loving fans. This year was no different. I don't know if O'Reilly started the media "controversy" which led to the death threats. But I do know that, as he did with the murdered abortion provider, Dr. Tiller, O'Reilly used his national media perch to contribute to a climate of hatred which doesn't exactly fit into the Christian Christmas message of peace on earth. Go figure!Read more
Remember Brian Lewis, the ex “right hand man” to Fox News chief Roger Ailes who threatened to spill secrets after being fired and escorted out of the building? You may recall that Lewis was allegedly fired for “financial issues and other performance problems.” However, Politico reported that Lewis had been suspected of leaking information to writer Gabriel Sherman, author of the forthcoming unauthorized biography of Ailes. Now comes word from Gawker that Lewis has been paid $8 million not to talk.Read more
