Fox and Fiends Nursery for Racial Propagandists

From the grow house to the White House.

There has to be ardent competition over at Fox News. How else might one explain the frequency of that cluster of praters being themselves, the news? In the downward sprint to personal ignominy, Laura Ingram has overtaken former front runners Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Jeanie Pirro. Another place one might encounter such a congregate of practicing racists is at a Trump cabinet meeting.

A few days ago Laura Ingram, $15,000,000 a year, champion of “mis-speak” talked herself into another non-issue that some perceived as racist. I do not. Neither do I believe that her comments were racially insensitive. Ms Ingram’s thoughtless chatter was certainly halcyonic yearning and might have caused her Polish mother to cringe, but racist it was not. Her comments were just incredibly stupid. Yep, plain old, ordinary, unadulterated stupid made worst coming from the law school graduate that she is.

Clearly, America has every right to enforce its immigration laws. No contest there. But if anyone thinks that what’s being done is strictly about immigration and saving American jobs for Americans, well I doubt that mind could be open to reality.

I know of no supporting evidence that claims education militates against bigotry -racism, misogyny and similar human failings. What might be factual, is that the bigot improves the articulation and persuasiveness of his dialogue/argument. He becomes more adept at concealment of contrary information and his duplicitousness. Bigotry is an emotional response transferred to attitudes and actions. The bigot spends his life stewing in his own misanthropic misery and cannot rest until he has dragged others into the fetid pool with him.

What surprises -though every observation informs me that it should not- is the large number of people who live in a time when facts, cursory at least, are freely available to all, in minutes and much, much more may be had if wanted. Surely we can differ on interpretations of historical circumstances and social consequences, but to continue believing in an America that never, never was; confirm misbelieve via the mouths of people well paid to lie, is sad and absurd.

Ms Ingram spoke of her discomfort with America’s demographics; Tucker Carlson the frozen faced foxie, who had the shakes over an American Citizen from Democratic Republic of Congo “ingratitude” by daring to protest the unconscionable occurrences at the Southern border, all deliberately delivered to a segment who still believe that they arrived in an America where Mexicans, Chinese and Africans did not already exist and that the majority of the world’s population was White. Cripes, people, you cannot re-create something that never was.

I Curse the Republican Party!

Who could not have foreseen the current political disaster that now enfolds America. Some of us did. Some of us warned. We called, we marched, we wrote and we voted. All to no avail. Now, without shame Putin is allowed to be temporarily more powerful than any country on Earth. No hyperbole there. I’ll explain, but for now, who has the nuclear codes?

At this moment, nobody but Putin knows what security secrets detrimental to America he has. That ought to deliver a bad case of insomnia. And the international humiliation of America stings much more than that which Trump liberally visited upon our political, and military allies.

Trump didn’t come out of nowhere. Putin did what is done every day in the darkness of military intelligence. He must be gloating so much, that insomnia ails him too. But the only people who are unbothered as they sleep like a baby (oops!) are the republicans in and out of the House and Senate. They can sleep blissfully. Undisturbed, unperturbed. A mere continuation of their torpor per the last 10 years.

But they did manage the entry and exits of the labyrinth they created – useless hearings that produced gas. Then about two hundred appeals to the Supreme Court, searches for the six cases of voter fraud and other vitally important stuff like that. Who could not have seen this coming, especially after Citizens United drowned all other voices.

The disservice done to the men and women who serve this country is appalling. But to Kim Trump freely gave and got nothing in return. To Putin Trump gave freely and got a soccer ball. Now we must wait to see how many children will ever see there parents again. These were done in the name of the American people. The party that has become so vile and hateful, that even a tad of common sense they refuse.

Standing before them, they saw (rather the rest of saw) a man so vulgar and stupid, that he displayed ignorance as a virtue. Thuggery acceptable; a grandfather still unable to control his lechery, his thievery and his lying mouth. It was okay to allow him to refuse the submission of his tax returns as FoxNews cowed any dissent, just to give legitimacy to a character that is obviously vulnerable to blackmail. Too late now. For these, I curse the Republican Party, that even now dare not do anything, but wither and die.

I Curse the Republican Party!

I am sorry that you didn’t seize the opportunity to challenge what appeared to be a mistaken opinion. I hope that they set aside positions stemming from frustration.
I believe that Black people are oppressed and treated as non-citizens. Civil protest works. Civil resistance forces the state to spend and exhaust itself. It loses its human resources needed for best contributions and achievements. Overt racism cannot be successful over time. History so instructs.

When Spain was vexed and the Moors and Jews it collapsed. Because in the heat of passion no one gave thought to what their absence would look like after deporting the two groups who had vital skills in government administration, civil engineering commerce and education. After horrendous barbarity and destruction, Spain soon came to realise the fundamental truth -inhumanity is extremely expensive.

Apartheid South Africa, didn’t collapse because the police ran out of ammunition. It did because they found themselves in a world with only the United States and Israel. No country can live with all its contiguous neighbors at war with it, internal strife and international shaming.
Slavery didn’t end -reduce – because the British government suddenly grew a conscience. It was unprofitable and untenable. After the two worlds wars, not unrelated to slavery and colonisation, Britain exhausted and bankrupt was forcing independence on the colonies whether they wanted it or not.
Injustice comes with a terrible price. Often paid by grandchildren.

If Only Tucker Carlson Would Read or Listen

Tucker Carlson works at FoxNews. He talks. What he disseminates would be unacceptably deficient at most high school student-volunteer broadcast rooms. Yet, he talks.

Carlson has knocked about television talk shows as a guest representing conservative political views. A few times he hosted short-lived shows. In the sphere of broadcasting, Carlson has never been someone with opinions that improved the quality of discussions. But he talks. Mistakes are made. That should be the exception, but Carlson has always had cold, bad days.

Somehow Tucker Carlson managed to get hired as the angry man, performing as a broadcaster at Fox News. His greatest challenge is to show up and yak about anything that vexed him that day. Content, be damned.

Recently Carlson got an opportunity for professional growth and self respect. Though it was handed to him readymade, Carlson blew it up and revealed even more of his piss-poor character, and his limitations.

On Independence Day celebration, 2018, there was an organised peaceful protest at the Statue of Liberty. One protester, Patricia Therese Okoumou, a United States citizen from the Democratic Republic of Congo, (DRC) in Africa, climbed onto Lady Liberty’s pedestal. No easy feat. But Carlson pounced, saying this:

“Just yesterday, a Congolese immigrant shut down the Statue of Liberty—our Statue of Liberty—to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policies. The left applauded that.”

Carlson visibly enraged continued:

‘Think about what you are watching right here. Congo is a war-ravaged hell-scape, a country noted for mass rape and cannibalism. Imagine escaping a country like that, and being welcomed in our country, the United States. You would be grateful, wouldn’t you? This person is not grateful at all. She took over one of our monuments to scream about how racist we are, and progressives support her. They have gone insane.

No, no. Carlson, for someone with a B.A in history from Trinity University, you missed several semesters of learning. I will soon tell you why.

Okoumou, has pleaded not guilty to three federal misdemeanor charges stemming from her protest. After her court hearing in New York on Thursday, she quoted Michelle Obama’s “When they go low, we go high. I went as high as I could.” She never screamed at anyone.

Tucker Carlson, you should know that the DRC had a prosperous culture before Europeans arrived. You should know also, that the hell-scape began from the day Europeans laid eyes on it.Nine countries were at war at the same time each wanting the wealth of DRC. Yet you persist with the slurs and racist tropes that you absolutely need to live by. You need that lie. But let’s concentrate on the buzzwords popular in your circle –rapists and cannibalism.

http://www.nationsonline.org/oneworld/congo_droc.htm

Rapists? Most frequently shouted by your dear leader. You do know that Congolese boys, at gun point, were forced to rape their mothers and sisters as punishment for not meeting the unconscionable rubber quotas and some missionaries, not satisfied with their own debauchery, or just upping depravity, abandoned their calling and joined the horror perpetrated. If rape was the worst you could imagine, I can tell you about body parts even from children. Those were dried, skulls collected and used as path liners of flower gardens. I won’t go further with rape. I just don’t want to be as gross as you.

Cannibalism? The favourite excuse of European colonisers. Does the Belgian Congo and King Leopold 2nd trigger a memory? It should, because America was the first country in the world to recognise that slave colony owned by one man, Leopold. (take a look at the map attached) An entire country where every human being a slave, many begged to die. Mercenaries were the law and 10 million Congolese were massacred, starved, or worked to death. You read the number right. 10 millions slaves dead! They couldn’t meet the rubber quotas and had to provide food from their farms to feed the captors. I’ll end any reference to the savagery right there to save your damned queasy stomach. But I’ll be in your debt if you can direct me to any country that was exploited as much and as long and that late in world history.

America was bribed to bless the Congo’s legitimacy -the green light to the atrocities. So, Carlson, if you dust off that B.A in history, perhaps you would save making such an a## of yourself in public. Now, I suppose you want proof of the link between the destruction of Congo, Western prosperity and the lumps of righteous ignorance rattling within your otherwise empty head. I’ll oblige you:

It is a miracle that DRC even exists. But she, a U.S citizen must be so grateful, that she must be timid, she must have permission from the likes of you and Fox, to say publicly, that what is being perpetrated at our southern border is dreadfully wrong.

Then in Stumbled Trump

Too long dependent on racial appeal and citizens disenfranchisement, the frightened minority, tried to survive at all costs. The gasping Republican Party bargained and were vexed with God. The Republican Leadership, now reviled, and terrified, vitiated its legal and moral responsibilities to the nation, and surrendered all to the lingering tea party’s poisonous breath of death. The boisterous group of three dozen post-prime, comedians, who believed themselves to be marauders, invoked centuries buried, revolutionary political rhetoric they converted to prayers. Then, being lost in their own forests of deceit and incompetence, like the Frogs they pestered God for a mighty King. In stumbled King Trumpenstein the Clumsy, as animated as his cousins Jeff the Elf and Mike the Mesmerized, and twice as dumb. Horray, cried the aimless party’s soul. All deficiencies ignored, the flailing limbs and gutter language’s stench adored. Then the party, like the Frogs, thanked their god, declaring the ogre,Trumpenstein the Clumsy, was chosen by God and all must obey. The adults cheered wildly while shouting the the ogre’s name. But the children watched the ogre, were afraid, and they cried.

True today as it’s always been.

I do understand that the players have to make a living and that they have contracts to honour. I just wonder, sometimes about the attorneys who represent them at the signing of these contracts and whether they know what rights given away?

But, let’s look at the fans. The fans who are enthralled with this or that player or team; the hundreds of thousands of people who make a living off the earnings of the athletes and the benefits to cities and the nation though tax revenues and so much more. All because of the players -not the owners.

I guess fans associate with the athlete, the image, not the man. Nope! Never with the Black human form.

Now, for those co-opted, who are wilfully confused; those who pretend not to have to decide: it’s about police brutality, police impunity to murder Black people in America and a criminal justice industry focused on our destruction through stultification.

If there is any doubt in your heart, two nights ago Trump, who has been on a dehumanising rant, finally spoke what’s in his malevolent, tiny, undeveloped mind. He said that if they won’t stand proudly for the national anthem, then they must get ouof the America. It can’t get clearer than that.

Well, Donald, piss on yourself, because we aren’t going anywhere. Even if Ben Carson, Mia Love, Kanye and others say pretty please.

We are here! We are aware! We are resolute!
