Along with standing for "God," the GOP platform also stands for one nation, under "God," that would ban all abortions even in cases of rape and incest. But that's no problem for Jesus BFF and Fox fiend, Steve Doocy who is all a twitter about how the Democratic platform has eliminated "God" from its language. This morning, Steve Doocy proved, once again, that Fox & Friends is Jesus' favorite morning show. And in so doing, he proved, once again, that Fox & Friends is also "the morning happy-talk show that Ailes uses as one of his primary vehicles to inject his venom into the media bloodstream" via sugar coated propaganda. On today's Fox & Friends, Roger Ailes smiling "attack poodle" and devout Catholic Steve Doocy was able to skillfully inject the Fox message that Democrats are a bunch of godless scum who are, as noted on the instructional chyron, "losing their religion." But as usual, for Fox & Friends, "that was just a dream..."
After discussing Michelle Obama's speech with Fox contributor Jehmu Greene, Weekly Standard's (Murdoch owned but rarely mentioned) Stephen Hayes, and A.B. Stoddard of "The Hill," Doocy dropped his load: "Something we've been talking about today, Jehmu, is the fact that the platform dropped the name God." He referenced how it was in the platform in 2008 and not their now. He also mentioned that Jerusalem was in the platform three times in the last platform but now missing. (Right Wing Propaganda Alert - Democrats don't care about Israel!!!!). Doocy, who brought it up, said "this is not what you want to be talking about" and asked "why did you do it?"
As the patented propaganda chyron read, as Fox fact, "Losing Their Religion, Democrats Dropping God From Their Platform," Greene responded that Democrats are "God fearing people" and that this "non-issue" is a "distraction" from talking about the speeches of Michelle Obama and Mayor Julian Castro whose messages come from biblical social justice. The chyron reminded the Fox audience why they're better than those evil, secular Democrats: "God" in the Platform, RNC Mentioned God 12 Times, This Year." As the agitprop chyron read "Where Did God Go? DNC Mentioned "God" Once in 2008," Doocy read an ABC headline about this missing "God" and whined "this is not helpful" to the Democrats.
Stoddard agreed with Greene that this is a distraction and noted that Romney disagrees with his platform's language on abortion restrictions. But she added that she didn't think it was necessary. Hayes immediately attacked Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz by referencing her recent claim that she had heard that the Israeli ambassador said that Republicans are "dangerous" toIsrael. At the end of his little right wing spiel, he worked in a quick comment that the "God" thing is a distraction.
What Doocy didn't tell his audience is that the ABC article quotes a Democratic official who said that "The platform includes an entire plank on the importance of faith based organizations and the tremendous work that they do" and that the language that they "use to talk about faith and religion is exactly the same vocabulary as 2008." He also notes that "the platform mentions: ‘faith’ 11 times; ‘religion’ or ‘religious’ 9 times; ‘church’ 2 times (one is a quote); and, ‘clergy’ 1 time."
Funny, on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," they interviewed the Los Angeles rabbi David Wolpe who will be doing tonight's benediction. While Wolpe did say that American Jews are concerned about America's relationship with Israel, the statistics, on the visual, showed that 68% of American Jews support Obama. Wolpe is one of a number of clergy who are offering prayers at the convention - including Fox fave, Cardinal Dolan - one of Doocy's Catholic peeps. So as far as "losing their religion," not so much.
That's Steve in the corner, losing his credibility - once again!
God, being a black woman that’s was born waaaayyyy before accurate birth records were kept, has been disqualified from voting in this election because of the new Repub restrictions.
From Priscilla’s post:
… “the platform mentions: âfaithâ 11 times; âreligionâ or âreligiousâ 9 times; âchurchâ 2 times (one is a quote); and, âclergyâ 1 time.”
Fact that the foxies didn’t realise that religion had not been dropped from the Dem platform is proof positive that they’re so busy looking for the next bogus reason to cry wolf about: they didn’t read the paper with intent to understand.
