In sowing hatred towards a German minority, Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels painted the Jews as a dark and menacing "other." Fox News takes a page from that playbook in sowing hatred towards "the other." For Fox, this includes the African-American community which, in Foxworld, is seen as full of "scary black men" who are constantly making life miserable for white folks who are all law abiding. Fox also takes a page from Orwell in creating an alternate reality in which it's really black people who are racist. Part of this reality involves the meme that President Obama, because, as a black man, he weighed in on the Trayvon Martin, is required to comment whenever a white person is harmed by a black man. Predictably, Fox & Friends is using the killing of Chris Lane to further this narrative - even going so far as to ID the alleged perps as black when one is white. This morning, they continued to play the race card with the newest thing making the rounds of racist, hate sites; i.e. the black accused murderer sent racist tweets. And that begs the question of whether these defenders of white America have EVER READ THE RACIST CRAP on Fox Nation!.
While the reality based media is discussing issues like, oh say, Egypt, Syria, and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Fox & Friends claim that the major topic, being talked about "all around the world" is "senseless, random murder" (notice not alleged murder or shooting) of Chris Lane. Doocy explained that he was "murdered by two black teenagers and one white teenager." (Nothing said about yesterday's lie) He mentioned that some people are "blaming guns." While he spoke, the chyron stoked the fear and loathing: "Armed & Hateful, Teen Killer Posted Anti-White, Racist Tweets."
Doocy read a "racist tweet" in which accused murderer James Edwards says that "90% of white people are nasty," a sentiment that is mild compared with the average racist comment on Fox Nation. Note that the tweet does not say anything about killing whites. After Ainsley Earhardt said "wow," Doocy asked if that "sounded racist to you." Despite the fact that nothing has been clearly established, regarding the motive, Brian Kilmeade, in an effort to compare the incident to the Trayvon Martin case claimed that Edwards "hunted," "tracked," and "shot" Lane. (According to the prosecutor, Chauncy Luna allegedly pulled the trigger). Kilmeade then contradicted himself with the comment that "this was random." (Uh, I thought that Lane was "tracked.') He spoke of how the Australian Prime Minister (actually the former PM) advised Aussies not to travel to America because it's like the "wild west." He didn't mention that the former PM "slammed U.S. lawmakers for turning a blind eye to "sensible" gun control and lashed out at the National Rifle Association for using the Second Amendment as a shield against it."
Steve Doocy recounted how, on yesterday's Fox & Friends, they talked about how Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the President were silent despite their being "so vocal during the Trayvon Martin problems..." He reported that Jesse Jackson did tweet later in the day; but only after a tweet that wasn't good enough. Video was played of Fox White House correspondent, Ed Henry, asking a White House spokesperson about the killing that was "apparently" done by THREE AFRICAN-AMERICANS. (Cuz Obama, being black and all, needs to answer for any misdeed done by blacks). The spokesperson said that Obama "didn't want to get ahead of the legal process." The chyrons reinforced the anti-Obama agitprop: "Where is the President, Aussie Killed for Fun, President is Still Silent," and "Selective Statements, President Spoke on Zimmerman But Quiet Now." Doocy's said it was "extraordinary" that the Deputy Press Secretary didn't know about it. (Uh, Steve, the White House has lots more things to think about than issues that Fox deems important). Doocy accused the president of "getting ahead of the legal process" on the Martin case. (WTF, all he said that if he had a son, he would look like him and that When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids.)
Ainsley Earhardt whined that "the left is making it a gun control issue." (And it isn't about easy access to guns?) In defending gun owners, she quoted Bill O'Reilly and spoke of how her father was a responsible gun owner. In getting in final smear on the president, Doocy quoted Fox acceptable black, conservative Dineen Borelli, who said that Sharpton, Jackson, and the president "use race when it is helpful politically."
Remind me again of who is "using race?" These people are beneath contempt. But they love Jesus so it's all good....
Oh, I’m sorry we don’t use all the sad buzzwords you want us to when we point out that Fox News is parading the victim around like a banner to platform for something they want. Sorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry!
Now, how do you feel about Fox News ghoulishly using the victim as a prop to advance a racial agenda before their corpse are even cold? What? You had to attack us for not sounding sad enough because such behaviour is IOKIYAR with you?
Well, ok then.
^- Small sample to get you started.
The same people that think Edwards’ Twitter should be exhibit A now had no problem screaming about how Zimmerman’s social media comments didn’t mean shit. What happened, other than that it’s a black kid with a white victim this time?
