Fox Host Says A Planned Monument To Enslaved People Should Include A Tribute To Whites

A planned monument to enslaved people that will be placed at James Madison’s Montpelier home has a Fox News host upset and insisting that the display should include a tribute to white people, i.e. the very same people who enslaved people of color.

Rev. Larry Walker, a trustee of the “Invisible Founders” memorial notes:

“We want to make this a national monument to the ‘Invisible Founders.'”

Walker said he believes slaves deserve equal credit for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights because their labor helped to finance the private lives of Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and many of the nation’s early leaders. Madison owned 38 African-American slaves when he died in 1836, and he never freed them. George Washington, on the other hand, freed his slaves in his last will and testament.

But Rachel Campos-Duffy, whose only claim to fame is that she’s married to a former GOP congressman and once appeared on the MTV show “The Real World,” said Sunday on “Fox and Friends Weekend” that she believes there also needs to be a monument to white people, too:

“I wonder if this monument’s gonna have this big giant sign explaining that it was the Democrats who were for, you know, keeping slaves and it was the Republicans not. Or if it will celebrate all of the white Americans who died on behalf of freedom of slaves.”

Shouldn’t there also be a big sign reminding everyone about the bigoted policies of the Republican Party and their infamous “Southern Strategy” which used racist appeals and tropes to pull white voters away from the Democrats and toward the GOP?

Also, this is the very same Rachel Campos-Duffy who said just last year that some black people in the U.S. would prefer to live in immigrant detention camps on the border rather than a housing project:

“I spoke to some African-Americans who say, ‘Gosh, the conditions of the detention centers are better than some of the projects that I grew up in.’

“The detention centers are far safer than the journey that these children just came on. People aren’t stupid.”

Some people are indeed stupid, and they tend to work at Fox News.

Fox News GOP U.S. Senate WTF?!

Oops! Sen. Ron Johnson Says He Condones White Supremacy During Fox Interview

Even though he didn’t mean to, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) appeared to finally admit how he really feels regarding the issue of white supremacy during an interview with Fox host Maria Bartiromo.

HuffPost reports Johnson was trying to say he condemns white supremacy, but it didn’t quite come out that way.

Ultra-conservative Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Tuesday said he condoned white supremacy before quickly correcting the slip of the tongue to say he condemned it, but people on the internet mercilessly pounced anyway.

That Johnson made his gaffe in an interview with fellow rightie Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business only made it worse. One jokester imagined Bartiromo’s response to be: “Jeez, remember to ‘dog whistle,’ Ron, like we practiced!”

It probably won’t surprise you to learn this isn’t the first time Johnson has outed himself as a bigot on the issue of race.

  • In 2020, Johnson refused to criticize Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, claiming “justice has been served” when Rittenhouse was acquitted.
  • In 2021, Johnson said the pro-Trump rioters who attacked the Capitol on January 6 weren’t a genuine threat, but they would have been if they’d been members of Antifa or Black Lives Matter.

Twitter was eager to remind Johnson that he had finally spoken the truth, even if he didn’t mean to be so blatant about it.

Jeanine Pirro Goes Low And Uses A Disgusting Word While Discussing NY City Mayor Eric Adams

When Fox News host Jeanine Pirro isn’t showing up for work looking and sounding drunk, she manages to make some of the most disgusting and revolting comments of anyone on the right-wing “news” network.

Case in point: Pirro’s remarks while discussing crime in New York City during an episode of “The Five.”

A clearly agitated Pirro had this to say about New York City mayor Eric Adams (D):

“We weren’t here ten years ago. Why weren’t we here 20 years ago? The reason we weren’t is because we were a nation of law and order and consequence.”

But Pirro was only getting warmed up, and her rant continued:

“They came in with this concept of social justice and they ruined it for all of us. When the first order of government I know this is bore is a protection of its citizens and they don’t do it. They need to be voted out of office.

“That, you know, I’m tired and I’m going to go after them again. Mayor Eric Adams, he’s a failure. Yeah, the guy’s a former police captain. Everybody said, yeah, streets are good, but you’re a failure. You talk the talk. You don’t walk the walk. You don’t call out Hochul. You don’t call out the legislature and say, change the bail laws. They’re coming out. They’re killing us.”

Co-host Geraldo Rivera voiced his objection to Pirro’s remarks:

“I disagree with that about mayor.”

Pirro:

“Why because you like him?”

Rivera:

“I respect his attempts to reign in violent crime.”

But Pirro refused to accept her co-hosts opinion:

“What attempt, tell me?”

Once more, Rivera tried to complete his thought:

“He’s gone to Governor Hochul, he’s gone to these other.”

That’s when Pirro uncorked the disgusting word:

“No, he’s a pussy!

“When he came back to talk about that meeting. This is what he said. He said, ‘I don’t want to talk to you about this.’ He didn’t want to talk to us about it because he didn’t do anything.”

Oh well, at least he’s not a besotted lush, Jeanine.

Fox News Immigration WTF?!

Tucker Carlson Spews A Racist Rant About The Migrants Relocated To Martha’s Vineyard

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is absolutely ecstatic that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) sent 50 Venezuelan and Colombian migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, and to celebrate he went on a disgusting racist rant in which he suggested the migrants could have a “goat barbecue” with Barack and Michelle Obama.

Back in July, Carlson had urged GOP governors to send migrants “in large numbers” to to the Massachusetts resort, and now that DeSantis has done that, Carlson is celebrating, remarking on his show:

“The Vineyard is going to need to construct shantytowns for all these new people. But we can’t call them ‘shantytowns,’ obviously that’s demeaning. So we’re going to call them ‘townships’ after Obama’s favorite country, and then we’re going to give them dignified names that suggests some kind of victory over adversity. Mandela, Cesar Chavezville, Kamalapolis.”

Of course, Carlson’s latest disgusting comments should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention. After all, this is the very same Tucker Carlson who has been pushing “replacement theory” on his show for years, as MSNBC noted in May:

Coined by a French scholar more than a decade ago, the term was quickly taken up globally by white supremacists, for whom the theory now provides a single, overarching framework for ideas that had already been percolating for years. Last September, Media Matters reported that Carlson spent a year embarking on a “dedicated campaign to insert the ‘great replacement’ conspiracy theory … into mainstream Republican discourse.” Carlson has repeatedly used the language of replacement to suggest or directly argue that Democrats are orchestrating “demographic replacement” to gain political power. The day before the September Media Matters report, Carlson told his viewers that President Joe Biden aimed to “replace ‘legacy Americans’” and “change the racial mix of the country” for political gain.

If you ever wonder why there’s so much hatred and vitriol in this country, you don’t have to look any further than Fox News and Tucker Carlson for an explanation.

Crime Donald Trump Fox News

Hannity Accidentally Condemns Trump By Listing The 30+ Crimes That Could Send Him To Prison

In a desperate attempt to defend failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump on his show Monday evening, Fox News host Sean Hannity only succeeded in humiliating himself and the Donald as he ran through the 30+ investigations and crimes of the ex-president that could result in serious prison time if he’s convicted.

Mediaite notes that Hannity kicked off his show by suggesting that Democrats were obsessed with investigating Trump:

“Instead of trying to fix the economy or dare talk about it, or the border, or the fentanyl or opioid crisis, or the crime crisis, Democrats have been wasting all of their time and billion dollars of your taxes with one investigation after investigation into all things Donald Trump,” Hannity said. “This has been going on now for years.”

But the graphic Hannity ran as he railed against Trump being under the microscope for his alleged wrongdoings severely undercut the message he was attempting to convey.

The list, as you’ll see in the video, was voluminous, and yet the Fox host added this kicker:

“After all of this, Trump hasn’t been charged with any crime whatsoever, and they are trying hard, but there has been nothing. That’s because the partisan Democrats in charge of all of these witch hunts, they’re not investigating crimes. They’re investigating a person in a blatant attempt to smear, slander, destroy him and destroy his supporters. It’s the old Soviet Union saying: ‘show me the man, I’ll find you the crime.’ Except, they haven’t actually found a crime yet, so I guess they’ll make that up too.”

It didn’t take long before Twitter users mocked Hannity for doing more harm than good in his efforts to rescue his political savior.
