"Journalist" (?) Steven Crowder Freaks Out About "Scumbag" Occupiers

Steven Crowder's website's unattributed claim, that he is "FoxNews’ brightest, funniest young Conservative mind," is actually quite amusing in that the only accurate word is conservative. But it seems that he's all grown up and is now a "journalist." At least that's the term used by Fox & Friends' Dave Briggs when he hosted Crowder, on Sunday's Fox & Friends, for a rant about evil Occupiers who hassled Crowder when they disrupted a conservative conference. Crowder, last seen on Fox when he whined about Jon Stewart's left wing bias, was given an almost uninterrupted platform from which to communicate the newest Fox "News" meme about those lawless, violent, and dirty f*#king OWS protesters. Oh, the irony! And while Crowder might not be doing comedy anymore, he's still a pathetic joker.

Fox And Friends Outsource Smears To Comedian Brad Stine Again

Proving they learned absolutely nothing from the Hank Williams, Jr. fiasco—when he blurted out that President Obama was the enemy, leading to Williams being forcibly retired as ESPN’s Football Readyist—those Foxy Friends on Fox and Friends dragged out comedian Brad Stine for his weekly attack on the left. [Does two Mondays in a row on Fox “News” constitute “weekly”?] After last week’s appearance Priscilla noted that Stine, “as a youth, led the ‘carny life’ and went on to doing stand-up. After his conversion to Christianity, he made his faith the focus of his acts. Because he's a Christian, he doesn't use profanity… He founded ‘God Men’ a Christian group that emphasizes ‘spiritual Christianity’ and who ‘give thanks’ to God for their testosterone.” Yet, despite his proclaimed deep faith in Christianity, Stine demonstrated none of the compassion and charity that one might expect from Jesus, even a Jesus with balls. No matter. Stine was brought on to smear unemployed ‘Merkins as lazy people and he didn’t disappoint. Watch:

Maltese Knight Peter Johnson Jr. Praises Catholic College Opposition To Birth Control Mandate

Fox News has less than six degrees of separation from the Catholic Church. Given that the Catholic Church has traditionally been on the side of the rich and powerful, it's not surprising that Rupert Murdoch was given a Papal Knighthood in return for a large donation to the LA diocese for a new cathedral. The News Corps board of directors includes the very conservative Catholic and former Spanish president Jose Maria Aznar. Murdoch's American capo, Roger Ailes, isn't a Catholic but he attends Mass with his Catholic third wife. Many of the Fox anchors are Catholic and the one clergyperson who appears regularly, on Fox News, is a right wing former member of the wealthy and scandal ridden "Legion of Christ," Fr. Jonathan Morris. And it's just not choice of personnel that suggests Catholic influence in Fox News. The content, in relation to social issues, dovetails nicely with the conservative teaching of American bishops who have put "social justice" on a back burner while throwing their huge political clout to banning abortion and gay marriage. It was no coincidence that Fox "opinion" was spun for defunding of Planned Parenthood. The US bishop syndicate is not happy about health care reform regulations that mandate that Catholic institutions provide free contraception (as well as other gynecological related services) for their employees - despite the fact that many of these women are not Catholic. Thus, it wasn't surprising to see Fox's Maltese Knight, Peter Johnson Jr, on this morning's Fox & Friends, (Ailes little morning fiefdom) unilaterally defend those whose "war on women" is escalating.

Fox & Friends & Fr. Jonathan Morris Don't Need No Stinking Atheist Chaplains In US Military

If there's one stimulus that's sure to get the Fox "News" audience salivating, it's anything connected to atheists or atheism. Christian conservatives, who applaud over people dying without health insurance and waterboarding, loathe atheists as much as they do "illegals" and gays. They are in agreement that atheists are trying to turn this "Christian nation" into a godless state based on ungodly reason - a concept that's anathema to victimized Christians for whom Fox "News" is a mouthpiece. Recently, groups supporting Satan's atheistic minions have started to lobby for the military to appoint atheist "chaplains" as a way for heathens to have the same kind of support that is provided for other religious groups. This concept is supported by many of the atheists (9,400) who serve (Jesus wept) in the military. These folks have pointed out that Christianity still is still very pervasive in the military which results in subtle if not outright proselytization. But a retired evangelical army chaplain sees the demand for atheists "chaplains" as being "less about the needs of the active duty troops and more about a vocal minority of New Atheists wanting to spread its anti-Christian movement from the public square to the military." His comment, that atheists are "a militant minority" who are "against evangelical Christianity, dovetails nicely with the ongoing Fox memes of persecuted Christians and evil atheists. Enter, stage right (drum roll please) Fox's one true pastor, Catholic priest Father Jonathan Morris to read his Sunday gospel according to Fox "News."

On Fox & Friends: Alveda King Disses OWS, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and ACORN

As the saying goes, Martin Luther King Jr. must be rolling in his grave if he knows that his niece, Alveda King, has become a tool for Fox News - a network that is diametrically opposed to everything King stood for. He would be appalled that his relative is allowed to invoke the Civil Rights movement in order to denigrate liberal African-American leaders while promoting the views of a network that provides a platform for opposition to union, minority, immigrant, and reproductive rights on their television, website, and a blog that tolerates racist commentary and death threats directed towards our first African-American president. He would be disgusted that his niece is embraced by a media outlet that tolerates the kind of race baiting that allows statements like Ann Coulter's "our blacks are better than their blacks" to go unrebutted. But that doesn't matter to Alveda King who is always more than happy to go on Fox "News" to promote whatever right wing talking point needs talking about and diss liberal black leaders. The newest right wing trope is about the lawlessness of the "Occupy" movement. And now that Civil Rights veteran Rev. Jesse Jackson has compared it to the Civil Rights struggle, Fox needs to do some spinning. And who better to do that than the uber right wing Alveda King who was interviewed, earlier this week, on Fox & Friends. It was propaganda gold. She provided the requisite message that "Occupy" and the Civil Rights movements can't be compared and in so doing, got to diss Jesse Jackson and - are ya ready for it - those scary black people in ACORN! Once again, Fox will overcome!
