Watching Fox News definitely causes child endangerment

Shorter line for my kid to get his shot, less competition a few years from now when he's trying to get into college.

Am I supposed to be upset about Fox News' murder-suicide pact with current viewers being expanded to include potential future viewers?

The average fox news viewers children are grown adults. Younger cons get their news from the interwebs because Fox is secretly the deep state blah blah.
 
2021-10-21 8:08:45 AM  
The real question is: why do they have Dave Rubin on? He's such a useless slug that Joe Rogan won't have him on anymore. I know that Fox News loves having on right-wingers who believe in nothing, especially when they insist that they're really liberals who just so happen to agree with everything on the GOP's agenda, but aren't there plenty of other people likethat?

kkinnison: The GOP abuses children


Clearly Roy Moore, Dersh, Rudy, and Matt Gaetz need to be in charge of the children for research purposes.  Donald Trump is the only one we need on the FDA safety committee.
/Yeah, Fox news is so wrong on this article they might as well claim the moon doesn't cause the tides or that libs want to replace white people with the blacks.
Oh wait, they said both of those things too.

My kids are 16 and 14. They got vaccinated as soon as they were eligible. There was no discussion, likely because my kids are smart enough to see the benefit of not getting a deadly disease, which, to be fair, isn't really that smart. But they are smarter than the average Fox News viewer.

Well, less kids getting vaccine means more propagation of the virus and more variants being created that can get through antibodies.

I had my kids drink bleach, and they never got Covid.

"Biden is planning to vaccinate..."
No, he's buying up soon-to-be approved vaccines so he can give them away to people who want to vaccinate their children.

"In fact, they already bought the doses. They're not waiting for the science."
No, they're pre-purchasing vaccine doses so they can give them out as soon as it's approved.  They're waiting on the science to approve the vaccine, not giving them out now.

And them a backhanded smack at Fauci insinuating that he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Why?  Is it really just so the rich white people who have always been in charge stay in charge?  Kids should die for that?  Any lie will do as long as it keeps the base fired up against the Democrats.  Any lie, even deadly lies.

Don't sell your kids short.   They are smarter than the smartest Fox Viewer.

The moon doesn't CAUSE tides. It does exacerbate them, though.

Tides are caused by the difference in centripetal acceleration between the point on earth closest to the sun and the point on earth farthest from the sun at any given moment.

Maybe not those last four doses.

they have been killing kids for a long time. average age in vietnam was 19. They just moved the age down a little. Mass shootings ? more dead kids. they dont give a crap about children. they are disposable
 
2021-10-21 8:26:30 AM  
These people will get their children vaccinated the second it is approved.
 
2021-10-21 8:27:13 AM  
There's a non-zero chance that someday these motherf*ckers will answer for their crimes. It will unfortunately mean that society has completely collapsed, but I will view their various spectacularly unpleasant demises as a small perk of the impending apocalypse.

You will be hearing talk about the risk of myocarditis and pericarditis as a real, but rare, adverse side-effect of the mRNA vaccines. What you probably won't hear is that there is a much much higher risk of more severe myocarditis and pericarditis associated with infection by SARS-CoV-2.

It's true that the risk of death is very low for kids, but that alone ignores the long-haul covid19 effects, including subtle brain damage. And that should be enough, but there's also the public health risk. Kids who can more readily get infected, and can thus spread the infection, keep pandemic going. And don't be mislead. There are some who will point out that even if you are vaccinated you can still get infected. That's true, but it is also true that you are 5 times less likely to get infected. Yes, breakthrough infections happen but not nearly as often as infections in unvaccinated people. If someone tries that one you, you might bring up birth control. Sure, sometimes a person can get pregnant even if they are on birth control. That doesn't mean birth control is worthless.

I give as much credence to fox noise's opinion of how to raise my children as I do my uncle who believes the existence of dinosaur bones is a test of faith from Satan.
 
2021-10-21 8:29:33 AM  
I plan on abusing mine just as soon as his age group is approved.

Meanwhile his 9 year old cousin whose dad told him he didn't need the vaccine because he's already immune after getting it this spring, then got it again in September is now being told that he doesn't need the vaccine because having it twice already is way better than getting vaccinated. How many more antibodies can you get?

Mine are smarter than average.

So... what? Go hold them down and shoot 'em up? By all means do that (for real... I'm down). You might be alone in your public service quest, but you are certainly welcome to do it.

I think we're past the point were these things make sense.

For decades they cultivated the stupid because they figured it would be easier to control. But now the stupid has its own momentum and they are left with no choice but to chase the stupid. The antivaxx nonsense doesn't serve any specific purpose, but they have to peddle it or they'll lose their audience to Newsmax or OAN or Youtube.
 
2021-10-21 8:35:06 AM  
This is pretty strong case to let Biden threaten Fox with dissolving their company, unless they go back on the air to take back what this moron said, every day, for two or three months.

They're going to get children literally killed.
 
2021-10-21 8:36:06 AM  
If Trump had won the election, the Faux News narrative for the past year would have been "Ungrateful libs refuse to call it 'the Trump vaccine'".

The Lone Gunman: The real question is: why do they have Dave Rubin on?


Because he's a classical liberal and even he sees how the left has gone insane. You know it's bad when a gay classical liberal like him is FORCEDto say just how bad the left has become. Just like with mental giant Tim Pool.

There really is not. Pretty much the entire right wing has taken up the plague rat flag at this point, because they revel in death and are hoping covid kills more libs than cons.

This is great news for Harry Freakstorm's Kiddie Kasket Kompany.  We registered the name before we saw what it was.   Hoodie the One Eared White Kiddie Kasket Kat was also an unfortunate choice.

Fox News Kasket should be as popular as our MAGA kiddie kasket and our T45** Super Action Time Kasket (for kids 237 pounds or slightly more).

It's a great time to be in the kiddie kasket kompany.  Once you fall down that rabbit hole, you're stuck.  Sorry.  Marketing says it would take $25 to change everything and if Biden gets half our market share to stay alive, we won't have that kind of money.  Not with the wife wanting to rent Macy's for a day and me needing a new yacht.  Oh, and the kasket kreators are demanding a 'living wage'.  Seriously.  What is that.  They're all ready living!  Isn't kasket kreating reward enough?

These children aren't competing for college.  They've been told that colleges are filled with elitists, they're liberal indoctrination camps, and you'll never get in anyway because affirmative action means that only minorities get accepted.  As someone who grew up in Real America, they believed this before Fox News, but it's now been reinforced.

Their future will be sharing Mike Rowe memes about how working with your hands means that you are better than people who went to college and sit in front of a computer all day, but you're totally not at all bitter about that.

Disney should have bought the News division of Fox when they bought everything else.  Then they could turn it into a decent news channel or shiatcan it for the good of humanity.  They owe us that much for all those damn tween shows that turn kids into assholes.  Bigger assholes, I mean.
