If you thought the arrest of Darron Dellon Dennis Wint for the quadruple murder of a Washington, D.C. family and their housekeeper was something Fox News would avoid politicizing, think again. Fox’s Greg Gutfeld used the news to go off on a race-baiting rant against Al Sharpton, Michael Moore, Bill de Blasio, Black Lives Matter protesters, BBC, ACORN and privacy activists.
On yesterday’s The Five, Gutfeld started off a discussion about Wint’s arrest with the following:
The quadruple murder suspect has been caught. Quickly. But by whom? Al Sharpton? Michael Moore? Bill de Blasio? No, the cops. Yep, another innocent victim of an unjust society backed by evil law enforcement. I’m sorry, I’m just helping craft the story for the left, BBC and those well-paid Ferguson protesters. After all, we know he’s as innocent as the driven snow. I’m sorry, snow is white and that’s a racist microaggression.
…So how did the cops find this creep? Phone records! Now, did we violate his rights there? And did we violate everyone’s rights by violating his? After all, that’s how we applied the logic to surveilling terrorists. Heck, if we treated this thug like a terrorist, he’d still be out ordering Domino’s.
Look, I get it, this was a specific search, not a mass data grab but why shame a program that provides fruitful benefits like catching killers before they can kill again? Besides, quickly gathered phone records are the least of our worries. Consider the Ferguson protesters that were hired – yes, hired – by the ACORN successor group to protest. They staged a sit-in after they stopped getting paid, allegedly. The group, known aptly as MORE, forked out five grand a month to protesters to demonstrate there. So what does it tell you when agitators pay protesters to stir up trouble? That while black lives matter, so does cold, hard cash.
It would be nice to know what these protesters were actually paid to do. For example, how do we know they weren’t paid to provide support to protesters in some way? But, obviously, Gutfeld was more interested in throwing racial mud than in imparting information.
This, from the guy whose employer promoted armed insurrection against the federal government by Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. Whose same employer barely covered the subsequent execution of two police officers in Las Vegas by two Bundy supporters.
And what did Gutfeld have to say about Bundy, after he was exposed as a bigot? Gutfeld complained about “shrill demands for coverage” of Bundy’s fall from grace and labeled such demands “a black hole.” Gutfeld wrote:
I avoid these holes if I cannot answer a simple question with a definitive yes:
“Do I add any clarity to this mess?”
If it’s no, or an “I don’t know,” I skedaddle. I don’t want to make things worse. I don’t want people to get hurt. I don’t want people to look at me and say, “Thanks for nothing, asshole.”
Right. Gutfeld doesn’t want people to get hurt or make things worse or avoid non-constructive complaints – except when he can curry favor at Fox by deliberately twisting non-political news to gratuitously smear the left.
But Gutfeld got one thing right. He is an asshole.
Watch the rest of the crew go along with this hate mongering, below. Not even “liberal” panelist Julie Roginsky called out Gutfeld.
His inane politicizing of these these deaths shows his poor judgement and highlights the fact that he is willing to awkwardly cobble together issues just so he can throw shade on those that he and the FOX “news” viewers despise. It’s lame and contemptibly opportunistic but he knows that one of his employer’s agendas is to constantly malign those like Sharpton, Moore et al. It’s red meat for the typical FOX “news” viewers and they eat it up (no matter how inappropriately Gutfeld arrived at the reference). FOX “news” is allowing this fool air time to say whatever he wants and this is where he goes. Pitiful. However, FOX “news” loves their mouthy, agenda-driven buffoons so they are giving him his own show that starts at the end of this month. Nothing like being rewarded for being an asshole, eh?
“The quadruple murder suspect has been caught. Quickly. But by whom? Al Sharpton? Michael Moore? Bill de Blasio? No, the cops.”
When I was a Seaman in the Navy, I had this one divisional LPO (leading petty officer) who had a standard refrain whenever somebody wanted special favors as a reward for completing a simple, assigned task: “What – you wanna pat on the back for doin’ yer job?!”
Sounds like Gutfilled is asking for the same thing: Sharpton, Moore, and de Blasio aren’t cops, it wasn’t their job to investigate and arrest Wint.
The cops did their job — I’m all for cops doing their job. I’d just like for them to do so WITHOUT limiting “stop and frisk” only to persons of color, shooting unarmed persons of color that pose no threat, or having persons of color die while in their custody from injuries they inflict . . .
“Heck, if we treated this thug like a terrorist, he’d still be out ordering Domino’s.”
Only if Dumbya was still in office, Gutfilled . . .
Or was that different because white bikers?
It does seem funny (not the good kind, mind you) that FoxNoise seems to excuse “whites behaving badly” as “a few bad apples” but when it’s a “Blacks behaving badly,” the whole group is guilty by default (except, of course, for the FoxNoise “house n-words”).
“But Gutfeld got one thing right. He is an asshole.”
And he’s also a BROWNSHIRT-WEARING, GOOSE-STEPPING, RIGHT ARM EXTENDING, CORPORATION-HUGGING NAZI!
