Joy Reid Unmasks the Republicans ‘Creepy Little COVID-Loving Death Cult’

As the latest wave of the coronavirus pandemic washes over America, the Republican Party and their Ministry of Disinformation (aka Fox News) continues to embrace policies that put more lives at risk and put off the day that the nation can return to some semblance of normalcy.

Republican Virus

If one didn’t know better, it would seem like the GOP is actually rooting for the virus to vanquish more Americans. Sadly, even though one does know better, it still seems that way. Republican governors like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott not only reject the guidance of healthcare experts to wear masks and get vaccinated, they impose unconstitutional laws prohibiting localities, businesses, and schools from setting their own rules to keep people safe.

On Wednesday night MSNBC’s Joy Reid addressed this lethal brand of partisan politicking in a video venting directed at the GOP (Givers of Pestilence). She held nothing back in her condemnation of the Republicans’ “creepy little COVID-loving death cult”:

“We begin the Reidout tonight with a message to Republicans. Okay, we get it! COVID is the precious and you love it. You love COVID so much you want it to spread into schools, at the office, in the Walmart, on the cruise ships and at the club. That great spongy ball with the red spikes, you want it pumping through your veins with an Ivermectin chaser. Why do you love it so dadgum much? We have absolutely no bloody idea. But here’s the thing you weirdos, everyone else hates COVID!” […]

“You may want COVID. You may want to ingest horse de-wormer and attend far too many funerals, but we don’t. And it’s not just saying that or tweeting that. California voted that. It is perhaps the first real tangible proof that your creepy little COVID-loving death cult ways are not going to work for you at the ballot box next year. In fact it’s political suicide.”

This is the sort of blunt fearlessness that has made Reid a favorite foil of the right, and particularly of Donald Trump, who pretends not to know who she is. And it’s the sort of honesty that triggers Fox News, who felt compelled to do a story about this monologue that focused solely on the right-wing critics to whom she was referring. What Fox considers to be a newsworthy story is really just an opportunity to disparage a political foe. Fox said that…

“Reid was blasted on social media following the rant, with critics saying she was doing ‘significantly more harm than good,’ and that she was a ‘terrible person.’ One even suggested that she had a ‘mental problem’ and needed to be committed to a hospital.”

Notice that all of those criticisms were really just childish insults. They apparently were unable to disagree on substance with anything that Reid said. Fox then posted several tweets by 3rd rate conservative pundits maligning Reid, as if that bolstered their already feeble argument.

Fox News and the Republicans they prop up should really think twice (or even once) before they take on Reid or other progressives. After all, the unambiguously pro-COVID network can’t dispute the fact that COVID is now almost exclusively the Pandemic of Fox News. Their most-watched hosts are still lying about the efficacy of masks and vaccines. Tucker Carlson even harbors paranoid conspiracy theories that the vaccines don’t work, but sinister Deep State operatives won’t tell you that.

Carlson has also suggested that it would be acceptable for his viewers to commit the felony of counterfeiting official vaccination cards. That must be their way of ensuring that if the Fox/GOP COVID-loving death cultists don’t end up in the morgue, they’ll end up in prison.

CNN’s Jim Acosta Righteously Nails Tucker Carlson as a ‘Human Manure Spreader’

Last week President Biden succeeded in completing a mission that four presidents before him failed to accomplish. He finally ended America’s involvement in the twenty year long war in Afghanistan. And in doing so he pulled off the largest personnel airlift in history, evacuating more than 120,000 people, including about 6,000 Americans.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

True to form, Fox News condemned all of that, and especially Biden, as a miserable failure. They focused on the few adversities – including a tragic terrorist bombing – while ignoring the exemplary deportment of our armed forces and diplomats who brought tens of thousands to safety and brought a futile foreign engagement to a close.

While more current events where taking place here at home (i.e. Hurricane Ida, a surging COVID pandemic, and a draconian Texas law setting reproductive rights back fifty years), both Fox News and Donald Trump wanted the press to cover only the bad news from the region.

On Saturday CNN’s Jim Acosta took aim at Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson, in a segment that was particularly cutting. He referred to Carlson as a “human manure spreader.” Which is better than if he simple stopped at Carlson being human manure. Acosta said…

“Over on Fox, human manure spreader Tucker Carlson, has floated yet another race baiting conspiracy theory that tens of thousands of Afghan refugees are being welcomed into this country in order to change the outcome of future elections.”

Acosta then played a clip of Carlson disgorging his racist “white replacement theory” diatribe about Afghan refugees being brought to the U.S as part of a “Change America Forever” plot to pack the electorate with foreigners. Never mind that refugees cannot vote and it will many years before they can even become citizens. It’s something Carlson has been fear mongering frequently. Then Acosta continued…

“Did he say ‘change America forever’? I think change is already in the air. We had an insurrection nearly eight months ago. An insurrection that, let’s face it, hasn’t really ended.”

Carlson believes – or wants his audience to believe – that the Afghans who helped Americans through difficult times in a foreign land are actually threats who must be feared and scorned. And if they come to America they aren’t just random threats on a vast continent. Nope. They are “probably” moving in next door to you by the millions. In other words…Be afraid America. That’s Carlson’s message.

Acosta’s words put all of that into the proper perspective. Except that what Carlson and Fox News are spreading is even too toxic for your suburban lawn. While fertilizer is intended to help things grow, the bullpucky that is being spread here is meant to kill whatever it comes into contact with. Which is why we need more word weeders like Acosta to cultivate common sense and promote a fertile environment.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News Advocates Getting Fake Vaccination Cards – Which is a Felony

Fox News has been at the forefront of the pro-COVID, anti-vax movement for more than a year and a half. Their callously political aversion to common sense methods of mitigating the harm of the deadly coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the latest surge that can be accurately attributed to the “Fox News Variant” that is infecting and killing Americans at record levels.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Coronavirus

While most of the Fox News roster is spreading disinformation about COVID, no one is more committed to propagating lethal lies than Tucker Carlson. He has promoted the use of quack cures, espoused paranoid conspiracy theories that the vaccines don’t work, and even exhorted his viewers to make false police reports of child abuse against parents whose children wear face masks.

On Thursday’s episode of Carlson’s White Nationalist Hour on Fox News, he went farther over the cliff of sanity than ever before (video below). In a border line criminal tirade, Carlson appeared to advocate that his dimwitted audience commit felony counterfeiting, fraud, and unlawful use of a government seal. He was triggered by the news that “[New York District Attorney Cyrus] Vance has just charged thirteen Americans with felonies for buying fake vaccination cards.”

“Fifteen people are facing charges connected to a fake Covid-19 vaccination card conspiracy involving the sale of forged cards and the fraudulent entry of people into New York’s vaccination database, the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. announced in a news release Tuesday. […] They are each charged with one count of criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second degree. One of those people is also charged with offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree — for paying to be entered into the state’s vaccine database.”

Naturally, Carlson regards these alleged crooks as innocent victims of political persecution and even heroes. He effusively praised the felonious lunks saying that…

“In good conscience, they’ve risked their careers to preserve their right to bodily autonomy and now they’re in jail for that. Now these arrests will be used to justify digital health passports for the entire American population. That is true. Save this tape.”

Of course, Carlson’s support for “bodily autonomy” doesn’t extend to women who seek to exercise their constitutional rights to reproductive choice. Nor to children who would prefer not to be riddled with bullets while attending school. Nor to humans who like their planets to have inhabitable climates.

Furthermore, those arrested are not in jail for seeking to preserve any “rights.” They were charged with purchasing fake documents and falsifying government records. But Carlson has decided on his own that those aren’t crimes. He continued his rant by dismissing the charges by Vance that…

“‘Making, selling and purchasing forged vaccination cards are serious crimes, with serious public safety consequences,’ end quote.

“Except that’s a lie. Buying a fake vaccination card is not a, quote, ‘serious crime,’ It’s not even close to a serious crime. Buying a fake vaccination card is an act of desperation by decent, law-abiding Americans who have been forced into a corner by tyrants. You know what’s a serious crime? Forcing Americans to take drugs they don’t need or want. That’s a very serious crime. And let’s hope, in the end, someone is punished for it, severely.”

Note that Carlson began his harangue by saying that those arrested were charged with felonies. But here he’s saying that “It’s not even close to a serious crime.” Rather, Carlson is sympathetic toward these criminals because they’re “desperate.” And despite their having committed actual crimes, they are also “law-abiding.” And to Carlson, the real criminals are those who are trying to save lives by preventing the spread of the pandemic. And Carlson hopes that they are punished for it.

Carlson needs to be advised that no one is forcing anyone “to take drugs they don’t need or want.” If somebody doesn’t want to take the vaccine, they don’t have to. But there are consequences for every choice made by free people. And access to places where an unvaccinated person could infect others may be prohibited.

This isn’t unusual. If you don’t pass a driver’s test, you don’t get to drive a car. In many states, If you don’t provide identification, you don’t get to vote. If you don’t submit the proper forms to the government tyrants you can[‘t hunt or fish. If you don’t complete the school curriculum, you don’t get a diploma or a job that requires one.

Maybe Carlson would encourage you to just buy counterfeit versions of those documents as well. In one way or another they are all state or state-affiliated institutions controlling an individual’s access to certain societal privileges. But in Carlson’s world, that sort of regulatory red tape is tantamount to authoritarian oppression.

Maybe someone should examine Carlson’s vaccination card (which is required at Fox News), and his driver’s license, and his college diploma. Judging by his remarks, there’s a pretty good chance that they are all forgeries.

Fox News, Trump, and the GOP Are Openly Threatening the Constitution and Democracy

From its inception twenty-five years ago, Fox News was a malignancy on the media. The motto that launched the network – “fair and balanced” – was intended to imply that the rest of the media was neither. It was more than an advertising slogan that criticized its competitors. It was borrowed from cult doctrine that taught disciples to trust only them and no one else.

Fox News, Constitution

Donald Trump embraced the same indoctrination tactics as he drummed into his followers heads that “the media is the enemy of the people.” He literally instructed them in Orwellian terms that they couldn’t believe their own eyes and ears, saying that “what you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”

Consequently, the results of a new study by the Pew Research Center shouldn’t surprise anyone. It found that…

“In just five years, the percentage of Republicans with at least some trust in national news organizations has been cut in half – dropping from 70% in 2016 to 35% this year. This decline is fueling the continued widening of the partisan gap in trust of the media.”

On the other hand, an overwhelming majority (78%) of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents said they have “a lot” or “some” trust in the national news media. The difference between Democrats and Republicans is a whopping 43%. So while Democrats rely on credible outlets with verifiable sources and documentation, Republicans are slaves to Fox News, Breitbart, OAN, and other professional propagandists. And the echo chamber linking those propaganda merchants and Trump completes the right-wing media circuitry.

On Tuesday the Republican Party went even further off kilter by making threats against telecom companies should they comply with legal requests by Congress for information. The House Select Committee on the January 6th insurrection asked the companies to preserve data in the event that the Committee might later request it as part of their investigation. That set off the House GOP leader, Kevin McCarthy who warned that…

“If these companies comply with the Democrat order to turn over private information, they are in violation of federal law and subject to losing their ability to operate in the United States, If they pursue this path a Republican majority will not forget.”

McCarthy was unable to cite what law the companies would have violated by complying with a request from Congress. But that’s only because there is no such law. To the contrary, it would be unlawful obstruction of justice if they did not comply, as pointed out by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA). In addition, GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene joined McCarthy’s mob-style threat and made one of her own. “These telecommunication companies,” she warned, “if they go along with this, they will be shut down. That’s a promise.”

Green made her threat on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program. And Carlson was quick to agree. He told her that “That sounds like a threat, and we fervently hope it is. […] You should shut them down. I mean you should take those companies down.”

Carlson, McCarthy, and Greene were appropriately criticized and ridiculed on social media for their ignorant, and ultimately impotent, threats. However, something has been missing from those critiques. What no one seems to have noticed is that these were actually attacks on the Constitution and its protection of freedom of the press. Two of the biggest telecom companies are AT&T and Comcast. AT&T is the parent corporation of CNN. And Comcast owns NBCUniversal.

So the threats by McCarthy and Greene to “shut down” these press operations are blatant violations of the First Amendment that states that “Congress shall make no law … prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” And the collusion with Fox News and Donald Trump turns this into a cabal of anti-constitutional conspirators who seemed determined to sabotage democracy and the principles upon which this nation was founded. They are not fit to serve in either government or media. And the American people should should shut them down before they cause even more harm.

Tucker Carlson Warns of ‘Revolt’ if Biden Doesn’t Apologize for Ending the Afghanistan War

Incendiary commentary has become a daily ritual at Fox News. When they aren’t justifying Donald Trump’s delusional allegations of an allegedly “stolen” election that already incited insurrectionist riots on Capitol Hill on January 6th, they are fomenting fear of a “socialist” take over that will put an end to freedom in America once and for all.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, STFU

No one on Fox News has been more determined to spread dread to his dimwitted viewers than Tucker Carlson. He has fear mongered about “dirty” immigrants “invading” the United States and overwhelming “traditional” Americans (the White Replacement Theory). Carlson has also stirred paranoid panic with dangerously false disinformation about the COVID pandemic and the common sense methods of mitigating harm via masks and vaccines. He even went so far as to encourage his followers to report parents whose children wear face masks to the police as child abusers.

On Monday night Carlson took another step over the cliff of crackpottery by arguing that violent revolution is justified if President Biden doesn’t apologize for successfully ending the twenty year long war in Afghanistan. Carlson was terribly disturbed that he hadn’t seen anybody in the Biden administration take responsibility for the sometimes messy evacuation from a war zone that was entirely predictable.

Of course, Biden himself had explicitly told the American people that he assumed full responsibility for anything that happens on his watch. But that clear and concise message was too complicated for Carlson to grasp. So he unleashed this bit of asininity:

“This can’t go on. When leaders refuse to hold themselves accountable over time, people revolt. That happens. We need to change course immediately and start acknowledging our mistakes. The people who made them need to start acknowledging them or else the consequences will be awful.”

For Carlson to raise the specter of revolt is irresponsible in the extreme. He appears to be lusting for violence, and it doesn’t matter what the reason is. So even though Biden has been open and honest about the tragic circumstances in Afghanistan, Carlson still thinks his viewers should resort to the savagery of an irrational rebellion just on his say so.

Never mind that Biden pulled off one of the most remarkable military operations in U.S. history. He managed the largest personnel airlift ever, safely evacuating more than 120,000 people in less than a month. The one unfortunate incident was a terrorist bombing, but Biden retaliated swiftly and successfully within hours. And for this Carlson thinks Biden should apologize or be subject to a revolt of right-wing barbarians like those who stormed the Capitol last January 6th.

What makes this all the more preposterous is that Carlson’s rant could have been written by a progressive activist and directed at Donald Trump. Read it again and see if it doesn’t apply much more accurately to the explicit denials of responsibility by Trump for everything from the January 6th insurrection, to the 620,000+ deaths due TO COVID-19, to the horrific immigrant family separations, to the unprecedented national debt and income inequality due to his tax cuts for corporations and the rich, to the exacerbation of the climate crisis, and to so many more catastrophic consequences of his ignorance and/or deliberate malfeasance.

Trump has never taken accountability for any of the disasters over which he presided. Nor has he ever acknowledged making a single mistake. So by Carlson’s reasoning, If anyone has the right to revolt it’s America’s Democrats and progressives. And hopefully they will do just that by means of the ballot box in 2022, 2024, and beyond.

Consciousness of Guilt? GOP Trump-Fluffer Seeks to Obstruct January 6th Insurrection Probe

Nearly eight months ago a crazed horde of hostile Donald Trump cult disciples invaded the United States Congress in an attempt to block the constitutionally mandated certification of Joe Biden’s election. They broke windows, battered down doors, and assaulted police officers, while chanting threats to kill House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and hang Vice-President Mike Pence.

Donald Trump Insurrection

Pelosi gave Republicans an opportunity to support an independent investigation of the January 6th insurrection, but they stubbornly refused. Pelosi then set up a House Select Committee that Republican minority leader Kevin McCarthy also declined to participate in. McCarthy threw a tantrum when Pelosi nixed two of his proposed Committee members, Jim Jordan and Jim Banks, due to their support for, and personal connections to, some of the insurrectionists. Those connections created the potential that they could be called as a witnesses themselves.

As the Committee prepares its investigation, it sought documents related to the events of January 6th and any communications between the insurrectionists and persons in government positions, including the White House, cabinet departments, and members of Congress. That, of course, might include Rep. Jim Banks (R-QAnon).

In what appears to be a pre-emptive move to prevent the disclosure of activities that could implicate him in crimes, Banks fired off a letter to Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson making the specious argument that it was improper to request the materials being collected. Banks also sent the letter to the general counsels of AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.

“One House Republican is gearing up to fight an effort from the committee probing the Jan. 6 Capitol attack to collect the communications of members of Congress.

“The pushback from Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) comes after committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) told reporters this week that he plans to ask telecommunications companies to turn over the records of several hundred people, including lawmakers.”

The letter that Banks sent sounds strikingly similar to the pleading of a defense attorney trying to suppress evidence that incriminates his client. Banks gave the telecom companies unsolicited advice saying that “recipients of legislative subpoenas retain their constitutional rights throughout the course of an investigation.” So what we have here is a member of Congress (who does not serve on the committee of jurisdiction) attempting to persuade corporations that possess materials relevant to an investigation to withhold those materials. That’s not suspicious at all, is it?

Banks is taking a page from the playbook of his mentor and messiah, Donald Trump. When Trump heard about the subpoenas by the Committee, he released a statement, via his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban), claiming that…

“Executive privilege will be defended, not just on behalf of my Administration and the Patriots who worked beside me, but on behalf of the Office of the President of the United States and the future of our Nation.”

You have to wonder if it’s the result of Trump’s narcissism, ignorance, or dementia that causes him to believe that he still has the power to invoke executive privilege.

Finally, it should be noted that the letter Banks sent was probably written in consultation with his communications director, Buckley Carlson. Buckley is the son of Fox News ranter, Tucker Carlson, who last month viciously slandered one of the police officers who heroically defended the Capitol on January 6th.

Banks has proven that Pelosi was right to block him from the Committee. His extremist views show that he would not have been interested in an honest investigation, but rather only in protecting Trump and defending his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from him. The very lie that Trump used to incite the insurrectionist riots in Washington, D.C. in the first place.

Fox News and Right-Wingers Are Already Trashing the FDA Approval of the COVID Vaccine

For months the vaccine resisters of America have been rejecting any consideration of getting the shot that science has established will prevent severe illness and death due to the COVID pandemic. Their doubts rested partly on the fact that it had only been given an “Emergency Use Authorization” by the FDA. To Donald Trump’s cult followers and Fox News devotees that meant that the vaccine wasn’t safe and its promoters were charlatans seeking some sort of population control or other nefarious objective. Trump himself ranted that the vaccine booster shots were a “money making operation” and not needed.

Fox News, Vaccine

On Monday morning the FDA announced that it had given its full approval to the Pfizer vaccine. That news will result in many public and private enterprises advancing their efforts to get more people vaccinated. Many unvaccinated persons have indicated that this approval would resolve their concerns and lead to them finally getting the shot.

Unfortunately, the most vaccine averse among us may still be opposed to this simple, common solution to a lethal problem. These are the same dimwits who have to be told not to take horse dewormers to cure COVID. And they have already begun to disparage the FDA approval that they had previously insisted they were waiting for. That disparagement was seen early by none other than Fox News, of course. They introduced a panel discussion about the FDA’s announcement by questioning the integrity of the institution and it’s processes:

“FDA just giving full approval to Pfizer’s COVID vaccine, it’s the first vaccine to get that full approval and in record time too, that has critics asking if the process was rushed. Was it?”

The critics to whom Fox’s Dana Perino was referring are most likely her colleagues like Tucker Carlson, who preaches the paranoid conspiracy theory that vaccines don’t work and “they” aren’t telling you. She may also be referring to Trump’s former trade advisor, Peter Navarro, who tweeted that…

“This is what caving to political pressure looks like. Pfizer vaccine is leady and non-durable and risks are mounting. If we had tried to pulled this kind of sh**T in the Trump White…fill in blank. F.D.A. Grants Full Approval”

Setting aside Navarro’s difficulties with the English language, it is notable that his credentials are in economics, not medicine. And judging by his disastrous tenure with the Trump administration, his economic advice is nothing to brag about either.

Also weighing in is America’s foremost conspiracy crackpot, Alex Jones. The Infowars host and dubious vitamin supplement peddler is distancing himself from Trump on the matter of vaccines. On Saturday Trump told those attending his travelling salvation show that they should get vaccinated. Although he tempered that suggestion by assuring them that they have the right to refuse. Which is another way of saying that they have the right to remain more vulnerable to sickness and death for them and those with whom they come in contact.

Jones objected to this stance on Trump’s part. He accused Trump of caving in to the mainstream media saying that he “clicks his heels and hops up there to attention” whenever NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Zucker and/or CNN snaps their fingers. Then Jones concluded saying…

“Shame on you Trump. Seriously. Hey, if you don’t have the good sense to save yourself and your political career, that’s OK. At least you’re gonna get some good Republicans elected and we like you. But my god, maybe you’re not that bright. Maybe Trump’s actually a dumbass.”

Uh-oh. How will Trump respond to his pal Jones calling him a “dumbass”? Furthermore, how will Trump respond to getting booed by his own disciples when he advocated for getting vaccinated? In all likelihood, the answer is the same for both. Trump will bend to whatever position gets him the most adulation and increases donations.

Trump’s motivations are entirely driven by his narcissism and greed. In his cloistered world, nothing else matters. And despite the FDA’s full approval of the Pfizer vaccine, Trump will undoubtedly rush to support those who are denigrating the vaccine and the FDA. Because his personal and political goals will always take precedence over saving lives and preserving the physical, financial, and emotional well being of the American people.

Rachel Maddow Fractures Fox News For Hawking a Horse Dewormer as a COVID Cure

Apparently it wasn’t bad enough that Fox News contributed to tens of thousands of deaths, and even more severe illnesses, by downplaying the severity of the coronavirus as a flu or a hoax. And apparently they weren’t satisfied with the suffering they’ve caused by convincing their glassy-eyed viewers that vaccines either aren’t necessary, or don’t work, or are constraints on their freedom imposed by autocrats intent on enslaving them.

Fox News, Cov-Aid

Fox’s efforts have led to what can now be accurately designated the Pandemic of Fox News.” Their primetime purveyors of pandemic bullpucky are clearly determined to propagate even more pain.

To that end Fox News began prescribing another phony cure for the plague that they’ve been reluctant to admit exists. Despite the potential for having a positive impact on their audience, Fox continues to prove that they just don’t care. Previously they tried hype hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug for which there is no evidence of efficacy treating COVID, other than the grossly misinformed word of Donald Trump. But now they’ve moved on to Ivermectin, a horse dewormer.

Yes, you read that right. And you aren’t the only one to be stunned by the sheer idiocy of this media quackery. When MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow heard about it she launched into a righteous condemnation of both the reckless advice and the Fox News advisors (video below):

“The Mississippi State Department of Health confirming today that ‘At least 70% of the recent calls to poison control in Mississippi have been related to livestock or animal formulations of Ivermectin, purchased at livestock supply centers.

“Why are people taking livestock formulations of Ivermectin Mississippi? That’s a horse dewormer. Literally, people won’t take the vaccine because they’re super suspicious of that, but they’re taking horse deworming medication that they’re buying at a feed store? For COVID? Why, on top of everything else Mississippi has to deal with right now, why are they dealing with this? I don’t know, but I have a guess.”

Whereupon Maddow plays clips of the three Fox News primetime hosts peddling Ivermectin to their viewers:

Laura Ingraham: We know that our FDA has in many ways failed us by not allowing for the use of Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, both of which are used around the world to reduce COVID hospitalizations and death.
Sean Hannity: I pelted them with questions about COVID-19 and the vaccine and therapeutics hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin … as well as other proactive treatments and practices that are already helping COVID -19 patients all across the country.
Tucker Carlson: On June 5th [Bret] Weinstein discussed the benefits of a drug called Ivermectin, which can and is used around the world to treat and prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Maddow then points out that there has only been one “significant” study connecting Ivermectin to COVID, but that it was withdrawn “because the data in it was apparently faked and the introduction to it was apparently plagiarized.” To date, no one on Fox News has withdrawn their advocacy of the drug. As Maddow noted in her closing…

“Nevertheless, Fox News is busy saying, ‘Don’t take the vaccine, but do take this horse deworming medication, trust us, it is proven.’ You could trust them or you could trust the FDA that says ‘Do not take Ivermectin for COVID.’ Or the NIH that says ‘Do not take Ivermectin for COVID.’ Or the WHO that says ‘Do not take Ivermectin for COVID.’ Even the company that makes the drug that says ‘My god, seriously people. Do not take Ivermectin for COVID.'”

You might think that that would finally be enough for Fox News to step back and retract their potentially lethal “reporting.” If so, you just know Fox News.

Tucker Carlson Stirs Fears of Afghan Allies as ‘Invaders’ Coming to ‘Your Neighborhood’

The swiftness with which Fox News is contradicting itself on Afghanistan withdrawal matters is giving some observers whiplash. This is an occupational hazard when it comes to tracking Fox’s views because they routinely change course whenever they stumble upon a new line of attack that they think might be more noxious.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

Fox News began their predictably anti-Biden diatribes by accusing him of bringing the troops home too quickly and abandoning our allies in the region. That narrative ignored the fact that it was Donald Trump who virtually surrendered to the Taliban in an agreement promising to remove all American troops by last May. That deal also lifted all sanctions on the Taliban and released 5,000 of their imprisoned fighters.

However, after complaining that President Biden betrayed our Afghan friends, who we had a responsibility to evacuate to safety in the U.S., Fox News is now portraying them as enemies who must not be allowed to set foot on American soil for fear of them engaging in terrorist acts against their hosts. And of course, if Biden does offer them refuge here, he is putting all American citizens at risk. No, really!

On his Monday night White Nationalist Hour on Fox, Tucker Carlson delivered the latest in his overtly racist tirades meant to scare the bejeebus out of his easily and eagerly spooked audience. He spun a horror story that commenced with this bona fide nonsense (video below):

“Yesterday the Biden administration told us that American citizens would not be given priority in the evacuation from Kabul. So our government’s official position is that American lives are not more valuable than the lives of foreigners.”

First of all, the Biden administration never said that “American citizens would not be given priority in the evacuation from Kabul.” To the contrary, they said that Americans would be given the highest priority,” along with our partners. It’s also notable that Carlson places “values” on human lives based on their nationality. While it’s appropriate for a government to consider its obligations to its citizens, it’s another thing entirely to regard certain lives as “more valuable” than others. That’s the rhetoric of “master race” supremacists. But Carlson wasn’t through. He went on to say that…

“If history is any guide, and it’s always a guide, we will see many refugees from Afghanistan resettle in our country, probably in your neighborhood, and over the next decade, that number may swell to the millions. So first we invade, and then we are invaded.”

And there you have it. The Afghans who helped Americans through difficult times in a foreign land, have now been reduced to “invaders.” That word goes much farther than merely to suggest they would be unwelcome guests. Carlson believes – or wants his audience to believe – that they are threats. And they aren’t just random threats on a vast continent. Nope. They are “probably” moving in next door to you by the millions.

Carlson is turning this into one of those “Be Afraid” moments you see in the movies. And the “monsters” are the very same people who Biden was previously castigated for because he didn’t insure their passage to America quickly enough. Now, having corrected that problem, Biden’s critics are attacking him for moving too quickly to import terrorists. If your head is spinning, don’t worry. That’s a natural reaction to the political spin of Carlson and Fox News as they struggle to keep their audience of deplorables frightened and angry.

Fox News Hate Monger Accuses Democrats of ‘Cheering the Extinction of White People’

The 2020 census made news this week when it found that the white population in the United States declined for the first time ever. It didn’t take long for the racial alarmists on the right to start banging the drums about the end of western civilization. It’s a path they have been tramping for years, and now they have data to fuel their paranoia.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

Topping the list of race-baiting fear hustlers is the Senior White Nationalist on Fox News, Tucker Carlson. He has been feverishly pushing the Nazi inspired “White Replacement Theory” for months, and recently enhanced it with his perverse view that Democrats are purposely trying to destroy the country for no reason other than to prove that they can do it. That’s a comic book super villain level of analysis that a seven year old would think is stupid.

On his program Friday night, Carlson delivered a maniacal tirade that concluded with his panic-stricken accusation that there were “non-white people cheering the extinction of white people” (video below). That, of course, was all in his diseased mind. But his hateful lunacy was littered with similar rhetorical garbage:

“Democrats are intentionally accelerating demographic change in this country for political advantage. So rather than convince people to vote for them – that’s called democracy – they’re counting on brand new voters. That’s what we said on this show. Immediately after we said that they became completely hysterical. They tried to pull us off the air. They said we were espousing something called the ‘Great Replacement Theory,’ a well known racist fantasy.”

In fact, the ‘White Replacement Theory” is a very real obsession among professional bigots like Carlson. He even admitted it earlier this year when, in the same sentence, he mocked “hysterical” Democrats for criticizing his replacement theory rants, but then concluded by saying that “that’s what’s happening, actually.”

Carlson’s assertion that Democrats are “intentionally accelerating demographic change” is preposterous on its face. Democrats don’t control the party registration of the demographic groups that Carlson is so afraid of. Likewise, his claim that Democrats are “counting on brand new voters” ignores the fact that every generation produces brand new voters. So he’s complaining that the American people are procreating. Well, to be precise, he’s just complaining about the “darkies” procreating. And if anyone is subverting democracy it’s the Republicans, whose voter suppression bills are proof that they know they can’t win without cheating.

Carlson then segues to the results of the 2020 census and what he considers Armageddon for the white population in America. He was clearly upset about this. He asks plaintively “Why did this happen? Where did all those people go?” Then he asserts that Democrats were “celebrating” the census results. As evidence he plays a clip from CNN that doesn’t show anyone celebrating.

Rather, the clip showed a Black commentator’s opinion that Donald Trump and his Confederate, Stephen Miller, were “throwing up” upon hearing this news. That was followed by a Latina commentator pointing out the poetic irony that the White House offices of Miller and Ivanka Trump were now occupied by people of color. That isn’t celebrating the decline of the white majority. It’s acknowledging America’s progress toward a more inclusive society that values its diversity.

To Carlson, what that amounts to is racial treason. He described “these people” as being “completely out of control, They are dangerous,” he said. And he characterized them as “gloating” over the decline of the white race. But in reality it’s just Carlson inciting the Klan types who watch his show religiously to embrace their racist fears. He is overtly exploiting rank bigotry for ratings and the blind adoration America’s most hateful. And he’s doing it with the full support of his bosses at Fox News, where spreading contempt, division, and racial phobia is all part of its corporate and political mission.
