Fox And Friends Outsource Smears To Comedian Brad Stine Again

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:

Gretchen Carlson Sympathizes With Ex Border Agent Who Violated "Illegal's" Rights

As documented on Media Matters, Fox "News" treatment of the immigration issue is not exactly "fair & balanced." Fox & Friends, in keeping with the Fox stance, never wastes an opportunity to talk about those "illegals" who are, according to Fox, causing chaos on the border. This morning, Gretchen Carlson got to combine the scary "illegals" meme with the ongoing Fox & Friends meme of conservative victimhood. And as an added plus, former Miss America also did a little right wing rehab for a former border patrol agent who was sentenced to prison for violating the civil rights of an "illegal." But as he told a very supporting Gretchen, he was just following orders so it should have been all good. And the reason that it wasn't is because a district court found that Gretch's new friend's use of excessive force violated the rights of the "illegal." The decision was upheld by a federal court of appeals. Gretch didn't mention this. But Gretch isn't a lawyer. She's host of a Fox opinion show where opinion takes precedence over the facts so it's all good. And as Gretch was able to work in another Fox meme; i.e. criticism of Eric Holder in the "fast & furious" thing - it's even better!

Brian Kilmeade Says In State Texas Tuition "Basically Free"

Fox & Friends is an official Fox opinion show during which the curvy couch crew articulate all manner of opinion, some of which is different from those who don't reside in Foxworld. But I suppose it's not their fault. Take, for instance, Brian Kilmeade. Last week, Fox & Friends ran a segment with various stories related to those scary, evil "illegal aliens." In what seemed to be a contest for how many times the term "illegal aliens" was used, Kilmeade noted that while Rick Perry was criticized for the Texas policy of allowing instate tuition for undocumented immigrants, Mitt Romney is facing some heat over the Massachusetts health care plan which covers the undocumenteds. Kilmeade, in referencing the Texas tuition, said that it's "basically free." There are many Texas colleges and universities but the cheapest is Collin County Community College which charges $1180.00 for Texas residents. Instate tuition for the University of Texas at Austin is a pricier $7670. Neither of these sums is "basically free." I guess that if you live in Massapequa, a community where the median income is $107,181, your perspective might be a bit skewed?

Gretchen Carlson Outraged That "Irresponsible" Immigrants Don't Speak English

As a patriotic Merkan, Blonde, Aryan, Fox culture warrior princess, Gretchen Carlson knows that Merka is a Christian nation from whose tongues should roll only the English language. Any attempt to accommodate those who speak other languages (read Spanish) is seen by the former Miss America as an affront to the very values that the nation and Fox "News" are based upon - values that are being destroyed by those evil "illegals" that Fox "News" is always warning us about! Thus, she's fighting mad about a Cleveland Ohio program that provides translation assistance for non English speaking parents of school children. Never mind the fact that "Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 guarantees "meaningful access" and "adequate notice" for all services, regardless of national origin, which includes native language." Never mind the fact that providing translation services can assist both the school and the parents in formulating a quality educational plan. Never mind the fact that providing translation services assist the parents in understanding decisions made by the school. Gretchen Carlson lives in a posh Connecticut community where the only non English speakers are those who tend the house, garden, and children so who cares about that. But she is mighty pissed about those furriners in Cleveland who, according to Gretch, are being so "irresponsible."

Against All Facts Fox’s Phony War On Halloween Grows More Incomprehensible

When Fox “News” starts hammering at a meme it’s never hard to figure out why. Usually it falls into one (or more) of the following rubrics: Defending the GOP; defending the Teabaggers; defending the latest Republican to say something stupid; attacking President Obama; deflecting blame of President George W. Bush by attacking Obama; deflecting blame of the GOP by attacking Obama; defending Jesus; defending Christians; defending the flag; and defending Patriots both true and phony. That’s why Fox’s Phony War on Halloween™ is so incomprehensible. To start, it doesn’t fall into any of the above categories. Furthermore, the holiday itself seems to be diametrically opposed to Fox Audience Values™. In fact, there are whole swaths of ‘Merkin Fundamentalist Communities (traditionally a big part of the Fox “News” audience) who believe that Halloween is the devil’s holiday and, if they had their way, they’d ban it. Furthermore, the aims of those who wish to moderate the holiday (during school hours) would seem to dovetail with several Fox memes, mostly those about how the educational system is failing our children. So, when The Foxy Friends on Fox and Friends doubled down yesterday and called it an “all-out assault on Halloween,” I listened extra carefully to see if I could hear the dog whistle. Watch:
