When Fox's Jessica Tarlov fact-checked a White House lie about antifa providing bricks to George Floyd protesters, host Harris Faulkner cut her off, saying, "I want somebody that has an opposing view.”
Faulkner’s Twitter bio states that she is a “6-time Emmy Award Winning Journalist.” I have no doubt that she won six Emmy awards. But if they weren’t for Worst Imitation Of A ‘Straight News’ Anchor," I have a hard time believing she deserved a single one.
When she’s not overtly slobbering over Donald Trump or whitewashing his racism, she pulls stunts like she did on yesterday's Outnumbered show, where she cut off Tarlov while murmuring her approval of each of the conservative guests.
I explained the antifa BS Tarlov debunked and Faulkner’s disgraceful behavior in my latest post for Crooks and Liars. Check it out here.
Speaking of dramas, the QAnon fantasy writers living in their mothers’ basements have been busy with the Antifa fiction. It’s floated to the top of the MAGA cult sewer where Fox News is scooping it up to stir up Trump’s ‘law and order’ old farts who still remember Nixon with a fond heart. Kent State taught those lib’ruls but how!
But before I break into my typical long-winded rant debunking Antifa fairy tales, let me point out to Trump’s reelection team at Fox News that, even if true, this black men and lib’rul white Antifa terrorists acting badly theme of yours is a political loser. That said, here we go….
It’s bogeyman Soros funded. How do MAGAts know? There’s pictures of laser printed black and white Antifa fliers posted on power line polls recruiting professional rioters paid for by George Soros (it says so right on the flyer!). Complete with tear-off contact phone numbers. Boy, that’s slam-dunk evidence! By the way, I’m guessing the phone number goes to DC pizzeria Comet Ping Pong where QAnon claims Hillary runs her pedophilia ring out of the basement the building doesn’t have.
There’s video of black (of course) rioters tearing apart a trailer holding some bricks they claim was planted beside the curb by Antifa – funded by Soros, of course, just because. Too bad it’s clearly been parked by a construction crew including a lane closed sign hung on the back (there’s other lane blocking construction stuff in front of the trailer). There’s also at least 2 videos of what looks like police planting bricks on rioters but MAGAts we’ll ignore that.
Oh, there’s the Antifa Twitter accounts stirring up problems. Too bad Twitter tagged them as fake and I believe linked to white supremacists.
Speaking of white supremacists, there are white males wearing Hawaiian shirts – trademarks of the Boogaloo Bois – getting arrested. Nobody with ties to Antifa arrested yet though.
There are videos of white kids dressed in all black, Antifa trademarks, mostly vandalizing buildings. Nobody’s sure who they are but, of course, conservatives are assuming they’re Soros funded Antifa terrorists. Which is hard to prove because there is no Antifa organization. There aren’t even local cells. It’s like a small loose ideological movement who share their craziness in chat rooms. MAGA cultists think of your popular anonymous 4Chan vomitorium but for radical anarchists, not conservative racists and misogynists.
No matter. Despite his FBI saying there’s no evidence of Antifa being involved in George Floyd riots, Bill Barr is claiming there is without to my knowledge providing a shred of proof. That’s good enough for Trump though (who probably ordered Igor… errr… Bill to lie for him) which is good enough for his ad agency, Fox News.
Man, it’s hard to watch the news any more. 🤪
