America's Christian morning show, otherwise known as Fox & Friends, knows that you can't be a real American if you don't believe in God. This also seems to be the belief of a Texas county tax assessor who has started printing "in God we trust" on official county correspondence. He has received few complaints; but that didn't stop him from appearing on Fox & Friends where Steve Doocy responded to his commentary with pious patriotic pride and, once again, proved that not only is he an idiot - but he plays one on TV!
This morning, Doocy reported on the assessor's decision which (he slowly articulated the next words) "has some people up in arms." He shifted into Steve scold mode as he noted that the critics say that this is a violation of the separation of church and state. Sporting his trademark smug, self-satisfied shit eating grin, Doocy introduced tax assessor Ron Wright.
When Wright said that the controversy was a surprise, Doocy chortled in the background. Wright brayed about how this is the national motto. (Naturally, nobody mentioned that this happened in 1956.) He brayed about how "this is a timely reminder of the values on which our nation was founded." (Of course, our nation was founded on the deistic principals of the Enlightenment but Wright is from Texas so he wouldn't know that.) He claimed that the motto, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the National Anthem have "defined us as a people, as a nation." (What, what, it isn't the Constitution?) Doocy said "sure" and mentioned that the President, a man routinely attacked on Fox & Friends, said "God bless America" after last night's address to the nation. And for Doocy, if the President invokes God in a statement, it's hunk dory for Wright to invoke the national motto "which.is.on.the.money." (In case you didn't know that, Doocy used some dollar bills as a visual aid.")
Wright spoke about those who are protesting this and, in a moment of rich irony, referenced people who "are perpetually aggrieved." Doocy, who provides a perpetual platform for those who are aggrieved, chortled. Wright claimed that "most Americans like the motto." Doocy said "sure." Wright claimed that the motto "speaks to all religions, it doesn't favor one over the other whether you're Christian, Jew, Muslim what have you, it speaks to all of us." Reverentially, Doocy said "that's right."
Muslims refer to "God" as Allah and for Hindus, the concept of "God" is not the "Judeo-Christian" concept but one that varies according to particular sects. Then, of course, there are those who don't believe in a "god." So Wright isn't, as Doocy affirmed, right. He's full of pious baloney. But then this is Fox & Friends.
Bill Maher predicted that if Rupert Murdoch takes over HBO, Maher's show would be replaced by Steve Doocy eating paste. Bill gave Doocy far too much credit because paste eating far exceeds Doocy's level of competence!
“Fox is all about division, busting the unity that was once shared by many.”
AMEN TO THAT ez. Don’t forget — FOX is not the only media outlet dividing America 24/7/365. Mark my words: the entire modus operandi of Herr Goebbels II (i.e. Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corporation, the parent company of FOX), elephant-sized Jabba the Ailes (i.e. Roger Ailes, head of FOX Television Stations Group) and the rest of the Republican sympathizing, corporate run mainstream media is to keep working class Americans not fortunate enough to “hit the birth lottery” (including me) FIGHTING AMONGST OURSELVES in order to prevent us from uniting against and fighting the ruling elites, i.e. the “born on third base but think they hit a triple” 1%ers — especially Bully O’Lielly, one of the BIGGEST “born on third base but thinks he hit a triple” rightwing loudmouths that’s polluting America’s airwaves today. In my honest opinion, I believe this division of America started on the night of November 4, 1980, i.e. the night when a former actor named Ronald Wilson Reagan successfully BRAINWASHED enough working class Americans into joining the rich and privileged 1%ers in TOTALL ALL OUT WAR against the menacing “Cadillac driving welfare queens”.
“Steve Doocy thinks…” is not a real thing!
