Rachel Maddow vs. Bill O'Reilly

    After O'Reilly called Maddow an "NBC News loon," Maddow said she wanted to respond by wearing a loon suit. "Sorry, you really hurt my feelings," she said referencing O'Reilly. "I am a loon. I'm on the Canadian dollar bill. It's awful...but you, however, are also a race-baiting fuck."

HuffPo    

Whoa! Truth to FoxPAC power . . . Maddow goes OFF!
     . . . flashing a raffish grin. She turns to her staff and pretends to address O’Reilly as a duck. “Sorry, you really hurt my feelings, I am a loon. I’m on the Canadian dollar bill. It’s awful”—she pauses—“but you, however, are also a race-baiting fuck.”

The room explodes in laughter.

Founded on racism, the Conservative movement has ALWAYS BEEN a bunch of race baiting fucks.

   To wit, I give you the words of the driving force of the beginning of the Conservative movement, William Buckley . . .

In a 1957 editorial titled ”Why the South Must Prevail,” the National Review said:
   The central question that emerges . . . is whether the White community in the South is entitled to take such measures as are necessary to prevail, politically and culturally, in areas in which it does not prevail numerically? The sobering answer is Yes — the White community is so entitled because, for the time being, it is the advanced race. It is not easy, and it is unpleasant, to adduce statistics evidencing the cultural superiority of White over Negro: but it is a fact that obtrudes, one that cannot be hidden by ever-so-busy egalitarians and anthropologists.
Also in 1957, segregationist Sen. Richard Russell had this to say in Buckley’s magazine:
   As you know... there are some communities and some states where the Negro’s voting potential is very great. We wish at all costs to avoid a repetition of the Reconstruction period when newly freed slaves made the laws and undertook their enforcement. We feel even more strongly about miscegenation or racial amalgamation.

    The experience of other countries and civilizations has demonstrated that the separation of the races biologically is highly preferable to amalgamation.

    I know of nothing in human history that would lead us to conclude that miscegenation is desirable.

   So, let me get this straight. The damn near all white Conservative movement that has it's strongest base in the south and pushes fear of immigrants, muslims, "Welfare Queens", and black presidents who have a "deep seated hatred of white people and white culture" is NOT racist or using racial tension as a way to SCARE WHITE PEOPLE with scary, scary stories of how we are "losing this country"?

    Bullshit.

    Of course, this started with Bill O'Reilly, who covers up RW bullshit for a living.

    O’Reilly lashed into Maddow and NBC News for charging Fox with stirring the racial pot. “I mean, one NBC News loon actually said on the air that the coverage of acorn, the Black Panthers, and Ms. Sherrod was designed to make white Americans scared of black Americans. Who is sponsoring this stuff, Mad magazine?” O’Reilly roared.

   Yeah, because Wall Street didn't wreck the economy! Poor people did! Lazy poor people who depend on government support and entitlements. Scary muslims, scary immigrants, and scary, scary black panthers. Scary, scary, scary! Let's cover that, instead of Wall Street greed or the worst case of income inequality in America since the great depression!

   Of course, Rachel Maddow sees through that. It's not like the GOP hasn't ran on a strategy of pitting poor whites against minorities in order to cut taxes for the rich since the Civil Rights movement.

   “But it’s the (Shirley) Sherrod story,” Maddow counters. “I have leveled a serious charge about what’s happening with making white people afraid of black people as a political tactic by political activists, by people who want to harm the administration, and by Fox News as a political organization.”

   Fox News as a political organization

EXACTLY! Fox doesn't report the news, they invent it! And it somehow always makes the case that Republicans = good, everyone else = unamerican. Or white, small town people are "real americans" and everyone else is a godless, elitist who hates our founding fathers.

   The article quoted above is about how MSNBC and CNN are competing with Fake News (aka Fox News). It is titled Chasing Fox, and though it is mostly about the meta wars going on in the cable news industry, it highlights something that anyone who DOES NOT watch Fox for a REASON already knows. Fox is the media arm of the GOP. They are joined at the hip. And the GOP has perfected the art of blaming the results of their middle class destroying agenda on poor, easily identifiable brown people. All Fox is doing is using that same strategy to run a 24hr a day GOTV effort for the Republican party, based largely on lying to white people about how evil black panthers, immigrants and muslims are. Anyone who isn't a Fox fanatic viewer or a pundit paid to draw false equivalencies knows this.

   So kudos to Rachel Maddow for speaking the truth. In an age where Right Wing insanity is normal, the only sane people left will be called loons. When Bill O'Reilly, the man who once said of a african american owned eatery that you could tell blacks and whites are more alike than they are not because no one in the restaurant was yellling, "M-Fer, I want more iced tea.", well, when he calls you a loon, take it as a compliment.

    Because Bill O'Reilly IS "a race baiting fuck"

    What is sad is that this is NOT news. The Republican party has been a bunch of race baiting fucks for years. Founded by race baiting fucks, and now promoted by race baiting fucks at Fox. Add a few billionaires and a bunch of useful idiots who have voted to gut the middle class in favor of Tax Cuts for the rich who still don't know why things are this bad (Hint: Reagan and 2 Bush Administrations), and what you have is a boatload of FAIL.

Thanks to Rachel Maddow for reminding us what they are, and what they always have been.
