A Very Special Fox News New Year Celebration

Posted on Jan 2, 2009

Fox News mixed New Year revelry with the racially questionable salutations of “Jen and John C.,” which scrolled along the bottom of the screen during its telecast early Thursday morning. Good times!

The very fact that they displayed this racist banner (banter) again makes me sick to my stomach.

Re: Purple Girl,  you always seem to hit the nail on the head. I too see a severe and ominous backlash coming for the neo-cons and their ilk.
Someone will be ilk shooting very soon as the elder generation find the neo-con sense of humor a bit too much for them. They will send these insensitive and obviously bigoted individuals packing from the halls of power.
I only wish I could read the minds of those who see this slap in the face humor as it truly is, a smear on the presidency and a vitriolic attack on the one man who can help to force change in this country.
We the people, are the ones who will make change happen, but having someone in the White House who understands the needs of the people, will make these changes less strenuous and demanding on those who for
the last eight years have strongly defended the office of the president.
Come what may, on Jan. 20, we will have an historic inauguration, one which will shake the very foundations of the elite ruling class of this country.

The Neo cons may be headed for a Severe Backlash from their own base.
They have played the “patriotism” card so often, they may become victims of their own emotionally charged propaganda campaign.
FOX’s Demographics are far older than MSNBC ilk, probably older than CNN too.
The Older groups have a far deeper sense of Pride than the others. these are the ones who may have disliked the crimes and scandlas of the last few decades, But they LOVE their country. As such they still believe we are #1 in everything, reject facts to the contrary.They are the ones who were Pissed Bill disgraced the OFFICE of the Presidency. Apparently their reverence for the Office exceeds even their regard for the individual.These are the same ones who still support W..Because they ALWAYS support their President, because Americans are NEVER Wrong. So making fun of the Pres elect is a insult to these die hard Loyalists. They’ve turned a blind eye to every crime and lie Every President has committed. Because they refuse to allow the Office to be marred with Ill Repute.
This Group’s sense of ‘Pride’ is far stronger than their ‘Prejudices’.
Play with fire you get burn by fire. The Neo cons have been operating off the most basic emotions of their base for 2 decades, but I think they have miscalulated Just how much stronger Patritoism is than Racism.They’ve certainly been cultivating the patriotic Knee Jerk reactionism which is about to hit them in the head.
These aren’t your MSNBC disgruntled Liberals who love to hear the Presient belittled, these are the “Love America, or leave it” crowd.

ON called for or not - FAUX NEWS  carries forth the tradition that in the Soviet Union became an open secret:  No news in the truth and no truth in the news - if in need of reading-through-the-cracks training, study it and practice, then take what you learn to the entire spectrum of the MSM, for there are 2 things to never forget:

1. “Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the state.” - James Jesus Angelton - Director of CIA Counter Intelligence (1954-74)

2. “The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.” - William Colby - Director of the CIA (1973-76)

Hopefully obama will totally ignore fux news during his presidency. Fux news is an oxymoron as there is NO new or journalism and the bimbos lined up for their punditry are what attracts most of those blittering idiots that use fux news for their sexual fantasies, oop sorry, their source of information of which there is none.

I wonder which percent of the population re susceptible to subliminal mind control?

With Fox you only need 1/10th of your brain to take in a “pundit” so that leaves plenty of room for reading the mind control ticker…
