Fox News Gets GOP Activists to Pose as ‘Everyday Americans’ Against Critical Race Theory

If anyone still needs convincing that Fox News is an entertainment medium that produces nothing but hostile and divisive, politically charged melodrama, this may be the proof you’ve been waiting for. The devotedly right-wing purveyor of propaganda has been staging episodes to stir up opposition to Critical Race Theory (CRT), an academic field of study of that is defined as an “attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race.”

Fox News, KKK

However, on Fox News CRT is just a thinly veiled substitute for anything related to racial politics. And Fox uses it to advance their blatantly racist agenda. To achieve that goal Fox has been airing segments that featured allegedly ordinary folks who are appalled at what they claim is indoctrination and/or brainwashing of their children. A more accurate description would educating.

These segments are carefully scripted to inflame Fox’s easily fooled audience. And they also cast the players to assure maximum deception. The guests that Fox book, it turns out, are not so ordinary after all all. They are, in fact, Republican operatives. Media Matters has compiled a collection of some the recent imposers, including…

  • Ian Prior: A “Loudoun County parent” who has also worked for the National Republican Congressional Committee and a Karl Rove super PAC.
  • Quisha King: An an “everyday American” who is also a GOP strategist and worked for the Republican National Committee in 2020.
  • Patti Hidalgo Menders: A “Loudoun County, Virginia, parent” who also works for Majority Strategies, a GOP media consulting firm.
  • Lilit Vanetsyan: A “Fairfax County teacher” who is a reporter for the pro-Trump Right Side Broadcasting Network.
  • Barry Bennett: A “Virginia Little League Parent” who was also a senior adviser to Trump’s 2016 campaign.
  • Nicole Neily: A “parent fighting against CRT” who was also affiliated with the conservative FreedomWorks.
  • Elizabeth Schultz: A “school board member” who was also a former Trump administration official.
  • Carrie Lukas: A “Virginia mom” who worked at the Independent Women’s Forum and wrote “Checking Progressive Privilege.”
  • Bridget Ziegler: A “mother of three girls” who is also a precinct committeewoman for the Republican Party of Sarasota County.
  • Deborah Flora: A “school District mom” who also hosts a right-wing radio program.
  • Joe Mobley: A “father of three” who also hosts a podcast on how to respond to criticisms from liberals.

This is typical of how Fox News stages their so-called “news” presentations. Their hosts are partisan mouthpieces who have no expertise in journalism or public affairs. Their guests are invariably right-wing shills who are committed to advancing their political interests. And all of them are shameless liars who are more interested in scoring points than informing viewers. Yet somehow these cretins still have the gall to accuse others of indoctrination and brainwashing.

Fox News Vigilantes, Lara Trump and ‘Judge’ Pirro, Issue Call to ‘Arm Up’ to Shoot Migrants

There is a harrowing pattern of advocating violence that is indelibly integrated into the modern, Donald Trump diseased, Republican Party. It was evident in Trump’s rhetoric that glorified hostility toward his critics at his his cult rallies. It was inbred in his attacks on Democrats and the press as “the enemy.” And it recently manifested horribly at his Capitol Hill Insurrection.

Fox News, Lara Trump

As if all of that weren’t bad enough, now his progeny is joining in the reckless call for innocent blood. And Fox News is, of course, the bullhorn for this abhorrent talk. On Saturday’s episode of Justice with “Judge” Pirro, her guest was Eric Trump’s wife, and Fox News contributor, Lara Trump. The discussion was filled with the typical animus of the televised Hate Channel. However, it devolved into a vile assault on the already troubled community of migrants. And then Lara Trump dug even deeper…

“I don’t know what to tell people that live on the Southern border. I guess they better arm up and get guns and be ready, and maybe they’re gonna have to start taking matters into their own hands.”

Lara Trump, with the assistance of Fox News, is now openly advocating murder and vigilantism. The victims of Trump’s dangerous and heartless proposal would be refugees from Central American countries fleeing violence and poverty. Most of them are women and children. What’s more, how would the untrained, fear-driven vigilantes know the difference between refugees and Latinx U.S. citizens? They wouldn’t know or care. Its a recipe for more unspeakable savagery and grief.

This is the sort of racist hate mongering that produced that mass murder of 22 mostly Latinx shoppers at a Walmart in El Paso in 2019. The shooter confessed to “targeting Mexicans,” and his writings mirrored the xenophobic rhetoric of Donald Trump, Lara’s bigoted father-in-law.

Just prior to Lara Trump’s promotion of domestic terrorism, Pirro complained about unverified reports that migrants damaged fences and left garbage. Even if true, those are hardly capital offenses. Trump herself acknowledged that the migrants were predominantly children.

After her heinous comments, Pirro simply changed the subject with no pushback whatsoever on Trump’s call to shoot unarmed refugees. And for good measure, both of them disparaged Vice-President Kamala Harris, who just returned from a diplomatic mission to the region. Their catty assertion that she was unqualified for the job is ludicrous. Harris was the Attorney General and senator of the largest state in the country, California, which is also a border state.

No one should be surprised by these remarks. Fox News is notoriously drenched in xenophobic hate-speech. Their Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson, has attacked immigrants repeatedly. And he unabashedly promotes the racist “white replacement theory” that fear mongers about people of color being brought into the U.S. to “pack the electorate” against the soon to be minority whites. So the Piroo/Trump tirade is just the next sickening step in the Fox News/Republican battle plan.

Fox News Host On Civil Rights Movement: ‘We’ve Seen the Enemy and It’s White People’

Fox News suffered a profound loss when Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump for the presidency. And despite the messianic beliefs held by Trump and his cult disciples that he actually won and that his political resurrection is imminent, he remains an embarrassingly irrelevant and pathetic apostle of pity and lies.

Fox News Racist

This leaves Fox News in the desperate position of having to manufacture controversies that might satiate the voracious appetites of their scandal-starved audience. They’ve already run through preposterous stories involving Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head. they’ve tried to dampen Biden’s broad based popularity with nonsense like whether or not he wears a face mask, or blaming him for a sauce shortage at Chick-fil-A, or mocking the romance in his marriage. All to no avail.

Among the contrivances at Fox News has been a relentless assault on the academic study of Critical Race Theory, which is defined as an “attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race.” Not that anyone on Fox News could define it – or cares. They are just exploiting it to trigger the racist tendencies of their viewers. And that mission led to a segment on Wednesday’s episode of Fox and Friends where co-host Brian Kilmeade launched into a rancid rant against the Civil Rights movement (video below). He began by demanding credit for white folks having made some progress with their bigotry:

“They’re not acknowledging any improvement in our culture, and the gains made, and how we are more equal, even despite our faults, than any other country.”

Congratulations Brian, You and yours aren’t shackling Black people and forcing them to work for nothing anymore. That’s hardly something to brag about when there is still a significant amount of prejudice in America with regard to education, jobs, and housing. And there’s also that little matter of how Black men and women – and children – keep getting killed by police officers. But don’t let me interrupt. Please continue:

“The other thing is, they’re not only trying to raise up minorities and trying to make sure the playing field is even, they’re trying to take down the white culture. And this generation of Americans wondered why aren’t we all Americans? Why are we all being marginalized on a daily basis on our gender, our sexuality, and the color of our skin? And it’s not even subtle. It is actually out there. It is written in black and white.”

Just as we always thought. It’s white people who are the victims of culture take-downs and marginalization. It’s a good thing that we have Fox News and Kilmeade to remind us of this. But he still wasn’t finished:

“This is the big difference between other civil rights movements in our past. One, the first big one was a war. The second big one we saw in the streets, especially in the South. And this one we’re seeing in the classroom. And we’ve seen the enemy and it’s white people.”

WTHF? Kilmeade is now asserting that today’s Civil Rights movement has declared war on white people. That’s because he sees the struggle for equality as a fight to deprive the white population of the privilege that they believe is their divine right. Any progress toward leveling the playing field means taking away from whites the advantages that have been accustomed to for generations.

What’s especially nauseating about this is that Kilmeade isn’t the least bit shy about saying all of this out loud on his nationally broadcast television program. And his co-hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt nod along in complete agreement.

That’s how far down the Mariana Trench of racism that Fox News has descended. And Trump has made it acceptable to unapologetically parade prejudice around in Right-Wing World. But given the realities of demographics, they will soon be toppled from their hilltop. Deep down they know that, and that’s why they’re so afraid.

Tucker Carlson: Proof of Vaccination and Jim Crow Laws are Exactly the Same Thing

The ability of Fox News hacks to conflate wildly dissimilar subjects is pretty astonishing. And no one is more adept at this than Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson. His arguments on any subject are generally devoid of reason and crammed with racial animus. But on his Wednesday evening Hour of Hate he may have outdone himself.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Klan

Carlson has been an ardent opponent of COVID-19 vaccinations for months. He railed against them as fake and ineffective. He spread conspiracy theories asserting that they don’t work and “they” aren’t telling you. He even ordered his dimwitted viewers to harass mask wearers and file false police reports.

Now Carlson is combining his two favorite tirades: Anti-vaccine hysteria and racism (video below). The segment featured a chyron that read conspiratorially, “This is About Finding Out Who Dissents.” And in a manically obtuse bit of blathering, Carlson bellowed that…

“Everybody agrees that segregation was the worst thing this country ever did. Forcing certain categories of citizens into separate, lesser accommodations, barring them from public places, treating them like lepers or untouchables, that was completely immoral and wrong. We were told that a lot and most of us strongly agreed. It was wrong.”

So far, so good. Never mind that Carlson himself never agreed to the proposition he’s making here. And while segregation was awful, there are arguably worse things that this country has done. For instance, slavery, Hiroshima, and more recently, Trump’s negligent and incompetent mismanagement of the coronavirus, resulting in the deaths of more than half a million Americans. But Carlson was just getting started…

“So imagine our confusion today looking out across the country. The very same people, literally the very same, who just the other day told us that segregation was immoral, are now enforcing segregation. Should we be surprised? Probably not, but we still are.”

As usual, Carlson doesn’t identify the “very same people” he’s referring to. He’s also lying that anyone is “enforcing segregation,” as the term is commonly understood. Using Carlson’s alleged logic, quarantining Ebola victims is a form of bigoted segregation. He continued…

“Just this morning the New York Times informed us that unless you can prove that you’ve taken the injection that the Democratic Party demands that you take, you are no longer permitted in bars, comedy clubs, even some dance competitions, in the state of New York. You’re too dirty to appear in public. You’re not welcome near normal people.”

Naturally, Carlson is politicizing this matter by falsely asserting that the Democratic Party is “demanding” vaccinations. To be sure, Democrats have been far more responsible about measures to mitigate the spread of a deadly pandemic. But many of the more sensible Republicans have advocated getting the shot. Even Carlson’s boss Rupert Murdoch bragged about getting vaccinated. It isn’t about people being “dirty” or “normal,” It’s about people being smart and having concern for others. But he still wasn’t finished. Carlson whined that attending sporting events would mean that…

“…you will be sitting in your own roped off section, marinating in your shame with the other disobedient bad people. Medical Jim Crow has come to America. We still have water fountains. The unvaccinated would have separate ones.”

And there you have it. The fabled conflation of vaccine disinformation and outright racism. Carlson thinks that protecting people from a very real virus that is killing people is equivalent to the forced suppression of civil liberties based on skin color. In one fell swoop Carlson has diminished both the deadly consequences of the COVID pandemic and the overt bigotry of Jim Crow laws. And this is an achievement that you can rest assured he is proud of. It’s the sort of nauseating bullpucky that made him the number one show on Fox News. Which says a lot about Fox News – and it’s audience.

Racist Fox News ‘Comedian’ Bashes Biden for Promoting Inclusive Education

A few weeks ago Fox News debuted a nightly, primetime program that they thought would compete with Stephen Colbert or Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. Because what could be better suited for an alleged “news” network that is widely viewed as a joke? “Gutfeld!” landed with a thud as it’s brand of comedy was both mean-spirited and childish.

Fox News, Greg Gutfeld

The program has only gone downhill from there. Its host and guests appear to be devoted to lowbrow “humor” that callously attacks the underprivileged from the comfort of their ivory tower. Their most recent episode featured such specimens of hilarity as these swipes at President Biden (video below, if you have the stomach for it):

“He’s not sure if he is [President]. They installed the Waze app on his phone so he could find the west wing.” [and…]

“The only thing middle of the road about Joe is his hair, which resembles a crushed squirrel.” [and…]

“It’s only April and he’s swallowed more anti-American crap than Michael Moore’s septic tank.”

Comedy gold, isn’t it? Gutfeld began by maligning Biden’s mental acuity, something that the American people already assessed as superior to Donald Trump. Then he segued to a slam on Biden’s hair. Seriously! And naturally he winds up in the sewer, where Fox News and Republicans customarily reside.

However, the central focus of the segment was education. Gutfeld was appalled that the Biden administration is supportive of Critical Race Theory (that Trump tried to eliminate), and is pursuing an agenda that seeks to “incorporate teaching and learning practices that reflect the diversity, identities, histories, contributions, and experiences of all students.” Gutfeld condemned that noble and inclusive initiative saying that “it’s not an education they’re after, but indoctrination.” Indeed. You certainly don’t want to poison children’s minds with the notion that America benefited from its diversity.

As usual, Gutfeld is deploying a frequently used Republican propaganda tactic wherein they accuse their foes of what they are doing themselves. It was Trump who created a “1776 Commission” whose purpose was to indoctrinate children with what he called “Patriotic Education.” It was his reaction to the widely praised 1619 Project that aimed to make America’s historical curriculum more racially inclusive and accurate.

Thankfully, Biden revoked the report produced by Trump’s flagrantly biased commission. That commission and its report had already been rejected by historians as political propaganda. What’s more, Trump’s task farce had notable beginnings as Vladimir Putin’s “Patriotic Education” amendments to Russia’s education laws. So once again, Trump was taking direction from his mentor/boss. And Fox News is regurgitating it whole.

Fox News Photo Provides Graphic Evidence of Their Racism and Fear Mongering

The reputation for rampant racism at Fox News has been well established over many years. Their top program hosts routinely disseminate the positions of notorious hate groups (see Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson), who reciprocate by expressing their admiration and support for those hosts.

Fox News, LeBron James, Maxine Waters

On Thursday morning Fox News provided additional evidence of their embrace of overt bigotry. On an article posted on their website, Fox attacked NBA all-star Lebron James for a tweet that they said was “inciting violence” against the Ohio police officer who shot and killed a 16 year old girl. The now-deleted tweet was posted shortly after a jury convicted Derek Chauvin, the Minnesota officer who murdered George Floyd (which Fox News twisted to accuse Democrats of advocating riots) The tweet said simply “Accountability. You’re next.”

Clearly James was referencing legal accountability for what appeared at the time to be another police shooting of a Black “suspect” when other less deadly options were available. The question as to whether or not this was an unjustified overreaction by this officer has been raised since video of the event was released. And James deleted his tweet to lower the heat generated by this controversial subject.

However, the question of Fox’s racism is unarguable. The photo (above) that accompanied the article was blatantly contrived to induce fear and to prejudice the viewer against “mad” Black persons in public life. Next to James, Fox News placed Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, a favorite target of Fox. Waters was similarly accused of inciting violence when she advocated that protesters be “confrontational,” which is actually what protests are about.

Neither James nor Waters ever incited violence (unlike Donald Trump and his Fox News shills). But both James and Waters were depicted by Fox News as ominous villains in order to frighten Fox’s audience that is already riddled with racial anxieties and prejudice. Fox News ran numerous segments on these subjects that they repeatedly – and falsely – described as “putting a target” on the backs of police. Which is an awkward turn of phrase considering the literal targets that police put on the backs of Black Americans.

Now Fox News is doing the same thing. Fox’s deliberate distortion of the comments by James and Waters, along with the photo intended to invoke fear, are proof positive of the right-wing network’s intent to spread racist memes to their millions of viewers. It is a despicable abuse of not-very-subliminal messaging to elicit hate. And it’s what Fox News has been doing since its inception.

Fox News Spins Vile Lie that the ‘Left Celebrates Chauvin Trial As Proof Riots Work’

In the wake of the guilty verdicts for George Floyd’s killer, Derek Chauvin, Fox News has been busy trying to construct narratives that align with their racist, right-wing mission. So when they aren’t falsely accusing Democrats of “inflaming tensions,” they are alleging that the trial was unfair and the jury was intimidated by “mob justice.”

Fox News, Laura Ingraham, Ron DeSantis

On Tuesday evening Laura Ingraham joined in the Fox News campaign to dismiss the the evidence, the witnesses, and the jury, to peddle her own theory that the verdict was tainted by threats of violence, despite the fact that none were made and that the jury never encountered any. Ingraham failed to explain how such a jury would have been swayed under those circumstances.

Nevertheless, Ingraham invited Florida governor, and fawning Donald Trump wannabe, Ron DeSantis, to discuss this manufactured topic (video below). The dialogue started out with this glaring reality distortion:

Ingraham: I talked about how the ‘Big Lie’ that was told over and over by activists, media types, and the President and Vice-President is that America at her core is a racist nation. Your thoughts on that continued repetition and drumbeat, especially as it affects young Americans.
DeSantis: I think it’s very damaging because it’s an attempt to delegitimize all the institutions in our country, starting with the Constitution. They denigrate the Founding Fathers, they denigrate everybody in society now. I think it’s very harmful.

First of all, Ingraham has been trying for several weeks to shift the definition of the “Big Lie” from Trump’s deranged insistence that he won the 2020 presidential election, to whatever morsel of bullpucky happened to be on her TelePrompTer at the moment. In this case she’s peddling a flagrant falsehood aimed at denying that there is systemic racism in America. DeSantis was happy to agree, while adding some preposterous charges that President Biden and others were attempting “to delegitimize all the institutions in our country.” Really? All of them? And that’s the charge they’re making as they are trying to delegitimize the judicial system?

The conversation just got worse from there. Ingraham played a video of a protester in New York City who had a righteous complaint about how Black Americans have suffered in a country that allows them to be killed by the law enforcement authorities that were supposed to protect and serve them:

“What we really have to be cognizant of is that it was a mixture of violence and nonviolent protest that yielded this result. That’s the bottom line. America doesn’t listen to us when we march peacefully. I’m not saying that people will be back in the streets, but America must know that if you continue to allow us to be murdered in the streets without justice, we will raise hell in America.”

However, rather than hear the justifiable grievances of this articulate young man, Ingraham chose to interpret his comments as threats of imminent violence. Which led to this exchange with DeSantis:

Ingraham: Governor, this isn’t stopping anytime soon, as he indicated. Violence, at least in part, worked in his view.
DeSantis: Well that’s really, really troubling, Laura, because if that’s what a lot of people think — I don’t know what happened with that verdict, but if that’s something that can potentially happen, where you basically have justice meted out because the jury is scared of what a mob may do — and, again, I’m not saying that’s what happened here, but that speaker seemed to suggest that that had an impact — that’s completely antithetical to the rule of law.

Once again, the jury had no exposure to these sort of comments, and they weren’t a part of the deliberations. Ingraham and DeSantis are purposefully belittling the abundant and damning evidence against Chauvin, including a video of his victim being murdered in real time. They are dismissing the testimony of witnesses, medical experts, and even the police chief who was Chauvin’s boss.

And if all of that weren’t enough, throughout much of the interview, there was a graphic on screen that read that the “Left Celebrates Chauvin Trial As Proof Riots Work.” Ingraham never even tried to support that disgusting allegation in the segment. Perhaps because there was no honest, coherent way to support it. It was simply left there to poison the weak minds of the Fox News audience.

No one on the left was celebrating the verdict, which was regarded as a solemn moment to reflect on the loss of lives. And no one on the left considers rioting to be a valid means of protest. Although some – like Rev. Martin Luther King – understand that, while it isn’t supported, “A riot is the language of the unheard.” And in this program Ingraham, DeSantis, and Fox News are demonstrating that they are dangerously deaf.

RAGING BULLSH!T: Tucker Carlson Hosts Candace Owens’s Rancid Post-Verdict Rant on Fox News

On Tuesday night Fox News presented another episode of Tucker Carlson’s White Power Hour. The program featured Carlson’s regularly scheduled incendiary and racist hostility, along with guest Candace Owens, who joined him to deliver a nauseating harangue on the guilty verdicts for George Floyd’s killer, Derek Chauvin.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Klan

Throughout the interview Tucker nodded approvingly (though still maintaining his resting confused a-hole face). And through much of the segment he played stock footage of burning buildings from Black Lives Matter protests last summer. Why? Because Fox News wants their audience to think that there were civil disturbances happening currently in response to the verdicts. It’s their way of inciting fear among their dimwitted and hateful viewers.

Carlson began his interview by belittling the verdicts that he claimed were the result of viewing “a murder case through the lens of politics.” “When you you get to that point,” Carlson warned, “haven’t you already given up civilization?” That’s a good question considering that it is Carlson who is forcing the case to be viewed through a political lens. And his idea of abandoning civilization is when his white supremacist authoritarianism is threatened. It’s not the first time that Carlson has equated the loss of white power to the end of civilization.

For her part, Owens contributed another of her aberrant, self-hating racial rants. It was a long, painful soliloquy of deranged hate mongering that utterly dismissed the verdicts and the entire trial that the whole country watched (except for Fox News viewers because they chose not to air most it). Owens started off with a bizarre allegation of “mob justice” which she is falsely attributing to the media, to citizens exercising their First Amendment rights, and even to the jury itself (video below).

“What we’re really seeing is mob justice. And that’s really what happened with this entire trial. It’s not a trial about George Floyd or Derek Chauvin. This was a trial about whether the media was powerful enough to create a simulation, decide upon a narrative absent any facts. Whether it was powerful enough to repeat showing and talking about a nine minute clip that came from somebody’s cell phone without adding any context. Without showing the full police video, which they refused to release.”

Owens is lying about the video not being shown in context with other video. There were numerous videos from multiple perspectives, including the body-cams worn by the police. She’s also dismissing the testimony of the eyewitnesses and the medical experts. She’s even dismissing the testimony of the police officers, including the Chief of Police, Chauvin’s boss. But she wasn’t through. She still had to malign Floyd personally and assassinate Floyd’s character:

“Let’s not forget this Tucker, the media came out and told us that this was a man who was just getting his life together. He was a good member of society and he got mixed up because a racist white police officer had it out for him and killed him. All of that fell apart. All of the facts came out and all of that fell apart. We now know, of course, that he had enough fentanyl in him – it was three times the lethal dosage. Three times the lethal dosage in him when he died.”

Now Owens is lying about the fentanyl. A toxicologist at the trial testified that the fentanyl in Floyd’s system was not enough to be fatal. He told the court that “Mr. Floyd died from a low level of oxygen, and this caused damage to his brain.” But Owens still wasn’t through. She went on to make some ludicrous charges about the motives of the media and Democrats:

“It now means the Democrats can get whatever they want because they can create a narrative and they can treat people like pawns and get people to basically say ‘If we don’t get what we want we will riot, we will loot, we will send people out like soldiers to destroy your neighborhood.’ And that has been exactly what has happened. That has been the determination of this trial. The media and the Democrats now have enough power to bully, to bully and to lie to, and to create propaganda and successfully win. And that’s what happened and they are celebrating that win today. This not a fair trial. No person can say this was a fair trial.”

It is peak audacity for Owens to blame Democrats for inciting riots (which they never did) after she defended the Trump Insurrectionists that attacked the Capitol on January 6th. They literally sent “soldiers” (armed Oath Keepers and Proud Boys) to assault and even murder members of Congress as they endeavored to carry out their constitutional duties.

Owens closes by falsely claiming that Democrats are “celebrating” the Chauvin verdicts. Virtually every prominent Democrat who has commented publicly has said that this is not a celebratory moment. It is a solemn occasion that must remain focused on the lives lost. And it is just the beginning of a struggle for equity and justice. And for Owens to baselessly charge that the trial wasn’t fair is – like Trump’s “Big Lie” about election fraud – a purposeful call to arms for more of the violence that produced the deadly Capitol riots.

Ted Cruz Attacks Democrats for Holding Hearing on Racist ‘Jim Crow’ Laws that He Supports

Once again it has become necessary to set the record straight as to which American political party supports civil rights and which party is devoted to racial prejudice and oppression. It shouldn’t be that difficult to make the distinction considering that every prominent hate group in America is composed of people who are steadfastly Republican.

Ted Cruz, Racist

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is now helping to make the case that the Republican Party is the home of American bigotry. Upon learning that his Democratic Senate colleagues had scheduled a hearing to explore the rash of racist “Jim Crow” laws aimed at suppressing the vote of people of color in Texas, Georgia, and other red states, Cruz rushed out this tweet:

The problem with Cruz’s tweet is that he is clinging to a historical fallacy that bigots are fond of disseminating. He is pretending there was never a “realignment” of parties in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that saw Democrats embrace civil rights and Republicans embrace the Ku Klux Klan:

“The political realignment of black voters that began at the close of Reconstruction gradually accelerated in the early 20th century, pushed by demographic shifts such as the Great Migration and by black discontent with the increasingly conservative racial policies of the Republican Party in the South.”

The passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, with the vigorous support of Democratic President Lyndon Johnson, was the nail in the coffin for Southern racists who then abandoned the Democrats and registered with the Republican Party, where they still reside. Three of the four notorious racists Cruz cites in his tweet became GOP heroes. The one exception was Robert Byrd, who renounced the Klan and became such a dedicated fighter for civil rights that he was honored by the NAACP:

“‘Senator Byrd reflects the transformative power of this nation,’ stated NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous. ‘Senator Byrd went from being an active member of the KKK to a being a stalwart supporter of the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and many other pieces of seminal legislation that advanced the civil rights and liberties of our country.'”

So Ted Cruz is not only demonstrating his pitiful ignorance of the history of his own party, he’s lashing out at Democrats who are seeking to advance equality and shine a light on those who are trying to clamp down on the Constitutional liberties of all Americans.

This is typical of a Republican bigot like Cruz, whose only concern is retaining power for himself and his kind. It’s made all the worse by how openly and shamelessly he engages in this campaign of oppression. And it’s all a byproduct of the Trump era’s efforts to mainstream racism and empower the hate mongers who comprise the Cult of Trump.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News Fears Democrats are ‘Importing New Voters’ to ‘Replace’ Him

The flaming racism on Fox News continues to be the core of its editorial policy. It’s a theme that is repeated on multiple programs, especially during primetime with their openly bigoted hosts, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson.

On Thursday night Carlson made some of the most overtly racist comments he’s ever lowered himself to utter. Which is saying something, considering the hundreds of examples that have been documented. His remarks amounted to a full-throated endorsement of the repugnant “White Replacement Theory” that is a foundational principle of the world’s worst hate-mongers. It was the stated motivation behind numerous mass shootings including those at a mall El Paso, Texas, a Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and mosques in Christchurch, NZ. Those mass murderers explicitly referenced it in their manifestos. And let’s not forget Trump’s “very fine people” in Charlottesville, Virginia who marched through the streets chanting Jews will not replace us.” Now Carlson is doing the same.

Carlson felt so strongly about promulgating this rancid rhetoric that he appeared as a guest on another program, Fox News Primetime, hosted this week by Mark Steyn. While there he delivered an explicit sermon on white replacement saying that…

“[T]he government shows preference to people who have shown absolute contempt for our customs, our laws, our system itself and they are being treated better than American citizens.”

Carlson is trying to incite the anger of his racist viewers by lying about “contemptable” immigrants receiving benefits that aren’t available to the oppressed white citizens. He continues saying that…

“Now, I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term “replacement,” if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World. But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening actually.”

Apparently Carlson knows that the white replacement theory rhetoric is offensive, but chooses to articulate it anyway. That’s how committed he is to it. And he’s working hard to frighten his dimwitted audience. He continues saying that…

“If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there. So every time they import a new voter, I become disenfranchised as a current voter.”

Here Carlson is peddling the nauseating notion of voters being “imported” to “dilute the political power” of his white brethren. He continues saying that…

“This is a voting right question. I have less political power because they are importing a brand new electorate. Why should I sit back and take that?”

Carlson couldn’t care less about voting rights. His problem with what he calls a “brand new electorate” is that they are dark-skinned people from third-world countries. Never mind that they can’t vote, and that the process for becoming citizens, even for legal immigrants, can take more than ten years. But Fox News wants to make people believe that Democrats are recruiting illegal immigrant, drug-dealing, sex trafficking, MS-13 gang members, to come to the U.S. and be rewarded with voting privileges upon arrival.

This sick deception is exacerbated by Carlson’s opposition to “those people” voting here in the U.S., even if they are natural born citizens. There is a brand new electorate with every new generation. That’s why he supports the voter suppression bills being advanced in states like Georgia and Texas, where the LatinX population is growing faster than that of whites. Those bills are squarely aimed at people of color and, by golly, Carlson isn’t gonna sit back and take it.

This isn’t the first time Carlson has gone down the white replacement road. Just last month he ranted about Democrats allegedly “packing the electorate” with immigrants. He called it an issue that “we know for certain will change the country forever.” He frequently maligns people of color as “dirty,” and diversity as a threat to “traditional” America. And he’s doing it all with the knowledge and approval of his bosses at Fox News. And America should not sit back and take it.

UPDATE: The Anti-Defamation League has sent a letter to the Fox News CEO, Suzanne Scott, demanding that Carlson be fired. “Given his long record of race-baiting,” the letter says, “we believe it is time for Carlson to go.” It elaborates that…

“Last night, in a segment on his program dealing with voting rights and allegations of voter disenfranchisement, Tucker Carlson disgustingly gave an impassioned defense of the white supremacist “great replacement theory,” […] this is not legitimate political discourse. It is dangerous race-baiting, extreme rhetoric. And yet, unfortunately, it is the culmination of a pattern of increasingly divisive rhetoric used by Carlson over the past few years.

Despite the fact that Carlson has already lost most of his national advertisers (MyPillow is currently his top account), Fox will still probably be to scared of their white supremacist viewers to cancel Carlson. Meanwhile, The Daily Show put together a supercut of how Carlson “plagiarized” white nationalist mass shooters.
