So after practically fellating Assange during the 2016 election, Hannity scrubs all mentions of him and wikileaks from his twitter just the other day.


Hell, there were tweets where Hannity asked Assange to fill in for him!

These people don't give a fuck that they're insincere hypocrites - it's part of their allure.

Yep. Obviously their supporters don't care.

Couple years ago, was working in El Paso (great town). Caught a minor league game, the El Paso Chihuahuas. Their slogan? “Fear the Ears”.

El Paso Chihuahuas HOODIE- FEAR THE EARS YTH

Lots of people wearing cap things with Chihuahua ears. That’s what this dude needs.

After the game, walked around a bit, hit a couple bars. Had some good beer. Oddly, didn’t see a single person wearing such a bib.

Certainly not the first time Fox News has mixed up black people.

Won't disagree, but watching 20 years of the same programming on any media channel will certainly re-program anyone. Being informed is no longer a possibility as every media network purposely keeps information from their viewers. The only way to get additional information, is to look for it, and even then, you have to double-check their sources and if those sources are anonymous on a repeated basis, you can bet it's mostly bullshit and just an attention piece.

Re: Fox News Alert! (A Fox News Thread)

Posting the wrong photo is just a stupid technical mistake. Looking at it any other way is purposely looking for ooogie booogie men. Fox News has enough of them, so trying to place a racial overtone on this mistake seems desperate. The problem at Fox News, is they are just like other media groups, where they do everything so fast, they do don't check their work. They don't check their sources. Just like CNN, MSNBC, etc.

She didn't say something "awful" about 911. That's just bullshit, and anyone who listened to her remarks in context knows that. When she said "some people did something" she was talking in the context of all Muslims being blamed for what they did. (Hey, at least she didn't call them "very fine people on both sides", right?)

The “context” was and will always be 3000 Americans being murdered.

By some people that do not in any way represent the majority of Muslims. Don't stop believing what you want to believe, but it is not going to help you in an argument with people that are just as informed as you are and less into hasty generalizations.

Sounds like criticism, you need to stop inciting violence.

Doubly-so if you look at the direct response that it got from the person I was replying to.

Sometimes, this site is actually kind of fun.

They don't realize that being a joke isn't the same as being good at comedy.
