Nomiki Konst confronted and called out conservative lies on Fox News again. This time she took on the latest sting video against Planned Parenthood.
You may recall that a few days ago, Konst gave Fox & Friends an earful when a Republican guest backed Jeb Bush’s attempt to blame problems in Iraq on Hillary Clinton and President Obama.
On Hannity, Konst took control of the discussion right away, calling the latest video from the anti-choice Center for Medical Progress (CMP) “entirely fabricated.” She even shushed liar Lila Rose who undoubtedly thought she’d get lots of time to promote her anti-abortion extremism.
Rather than debate Konst honestly, Sean Hannity tried to pull a gotcha. “What do you know about Margaret Sanger?” he "asked." Clearly, he was preparing to join Dr. Ben Carson in promoting the myth that Planned Parenthood (founded by Sanger) aims to control minority populations, rather than provide health services.
But Konst didn’t fall for it. Before Hannity could quote Sanger’s (old and irrelevant) views on eugenics, Konst interrupted to ask, “What do you know about Ayn Rand? Ayn Rand was a racist. She rejected all of her theories later on in life.”
Hannity tried again. “Is it that you don’t want to answer a question?”
“No, it’s just not relevant,” Konst shot back.
So Hannity switched to attacking Hillary Clinton for receiving a Margaret Sanger award.
“I don’t see any relevancy there at all. What about the Rockefeller Foundation? The Rockefellers were involved in bad things, too,” Konst replied.
At that point, Hannity – who cut his radio teeth palling around with a white supremacist and has moved on to supporting a racist black apologist for slavery – pretended he’s just looking out for black folks. “So you support racism,” Hannity said.
“No, what are you talking about?" Konst replied. "…Let’s talk about the issue at hand…"
"Excuse me, my question is what the issue is," Hannity insisted.
"I came on to talk about Planned Parenthood, not Margaret Sanger," Konst told him.
"Was it proper for Hillary Clinton to accept a Margaret Sanger award?" Hannity pressed.
"I don’t know, she can make up her own mind!" Konst answered.
Later, once Rose finally got her chance to attack Planned Parenthood with lies like Sanger’s “eugenic vision is being realized right now” and accusing Planned Parenthood of “selling the body parts of babies,” Konst did not quietly wait her turn, which she may not have gotten. Instead, she jumped in.
KONST: There you go again, lying. …This has been investigated. So guess what? Five states investigated this with independent funds… Five states: Florida, Georgia, South Carolina Dakota, Indiana, Massachusetts have all had independent investigations that prove that those videos were false!
That was the last word and Konst got it. “I gotta go,” Hannity said, obviously disappointed.
Watch this textbook case in how to handle a Fox News debate below, from the August 19 Hannity show, via Media Matters.
I hope she’s not waiting for another invitation. FoxNoise can’t let a strong real Democratic voice make too many appearances; she might actually start influencing some of the FoxNoise sheeple.
Gary Anderson’s opening paragraphs read, "Ayn Rand stated that she was vehemently opposed to racism, and that position was adopted by Ron Paul.
However, I contend that this opposition to racism only works if libertarianism is not adopted as law!
The heart of the libertarian philosophy is the adoption of voluntary relationships.
The problem with this is that it leads Rand Paul and others to harbor a need to reject the 1964 Civil Rights Act."
Rand also believed that Europeans had every “right” to “develop land taken from the American Indians” (per her biographer Jennifer Burns via Wiki) which strongly hints at a bit of racism.
As to the theories mentioned, what Nomiki was probably referring to was Rand’s vehement objections to government aid to people but she was well-known at her local Social Security office in her later years if her Social Security check was even a day late.
A clown car and they are both on drugs.
Ayn Rand was a staunch defender of a woman’s right to control her own body, but would have condemend any taxpayer supported agency such as Planned Parenthood.
His audience has no idea who this man really is behind the scenes. Insiders, co-workers and former co-workers know about his dark side. It’s not pretty.
The masses should put pressure on the State of CA to shutdown this so-called “center.”
