FOX “NEWS” — Merchant of Hate

We have one TV Network in America dedicated solely to spreading hatred, reinforcing people’s prejudices, and keeping them dumb and uninformed, hence, easier to misguide and mislead.

F O X   ” N E W S “

From crazy morning show hosts, to the hate mongers like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity at night, and everything in between, it is a sad picture, indeed.

Just for fun and entertainment purposes, I used to listen in for a few minutes from time to time–to get a good laugh, or shake my head in disbelief at such an onslaught of stupidity.  But I’ve reached a point now, where I can’t listen to those crazy rants at all anymore.  Not even for a few minutes.

I’m going out on a limb now, but if we would take a survey of the nutjob wing of the Republican party, assembling right now at health care town halls, or questioning the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate, or just spewing racist hatred in general, we would find out that their main “news” source  (maybe the only one)  is

F O X   ” N E W S “

A recent study showed that people who predominately watch  FOX  “NEWS”  are the least informed compared to all others, especially those who get their news from a variety of sources.  Heck, a large chunk of them still believes, we have found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.  SCARY !!!

While we can blame people for their decision to remain uninformed and ignorant, we also have to realize that it’s the

“MERCHANTS  OF  HATE”

who are really at fault here.  They are the instigators.  They know darn well what they are doing.  Doing it for entertainment value, ratings, or for million dollar salaries–the bottom line is the same–you knowingly spread lies, misinformation and hatred, thereby inciting violence.  And you certainly can’t wash the blood off your hands when one of the crazies listening to your constant hateful diatribes, goes out and commits violent acts… as happened before…

Now my question is…

HOW  IN  THE  WORLD  CAN  YOU  SLEEP  AT  NIGHT ???

There’s a very special place reserved for people like you….

Barack Obama And The Nutty ‘Birthers’

images (10) images (13) images (12)

Have you ever wondered what a certified lunatic looks like?  Well, I’m sure they come in all shapes and sizes.  I met one such person yesterday.  Turned out, he was a middle-aged, chubby redneck.  What a surprise!  🙂

When sitting at a stop light, a pick-up truck drew my attention.  Instead of a gun rack, he sported a huge homemade sign, wood frame and all, with the question:

WHERE  IS
OBAMA’S
BIRTH CERTIFICATE?

No telling, how many hours went into the manufacturing of that sign.  Somebody ought to give the guy a video game, so he can spend the obvious time he has on his hands, more constructively.  When looking a little closer, I also noticed a confederate flag bumper sticker.  Now I’m wondering, if there could be a connection between those two things?  🙂

The nutjob wing of the Republican Party, instigated by the usual suspects,  FOX “NEWS,” Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, some loony congress people, Liz Cheney et al, has a new/old subject du jour.

They are trying to de-legitimize President Obama, by questioning the authenticity of his Hawaiian birth certificate, claiming that he indeed is not an American citizen, and therefore not eligible to run for, or hold the office of, President of the United States.  When listening to some of the garbage coming from those crazies, it almost sounds like they are painting Obama as an undocumented alien.

Here’s a news flash:  The American people decided the legitimacy of Barack Obama last November by making him PRESIDENT.  End of story!

Well, never mind the facts.  Who needs them anyway?  President Obama’s birth certificate is a legal document, issued by Hawaiian authorities, carrying the names of his parents.  The archives of the local Hawaiian paper show a birth announcement after his birth, and among other authorities, the Republican Governor of Hawaii has issued a statement, that President Obama’s documentation is indeed completely legitimate.

People who belong to this know-nothing fringe group don’t let inconvenient little facts like these get in the way of their mission, trying to de-legitimize Obama’s presidency.  After all, it gives them an opening to bring up all the issues, which really bother them…  his pigmentation, his Muslim middle name, and…  don’t forget…  on his birth certificate, there it is black on white:

Father – African,  Mother – Caucasian…

So, after all, we’re also talking about interracial sex here…  🙂
