"They're not here to hurt me! Sure, they want to make me look bad, but let them keep their guns. What could go wrong?"

Also strange how many Republican lawmakers say they did nothing wrong and were practically just regular tourists conducting legitimate political speech.

I will never understand how conservatives can hold both these ideas in their heads at once without their brains leaking out their ears.

Imagine all the potential Olympic gymnasts we could harvest from the Republican Party for all the acrobatics and mind-bending feats and twists they can go through to justify how their guy is a strong man dictator in charge of everything because he's such a big-dicked world class ruler who shows strength and virility to anyone on the planet, but also innocent and the victim of the most elaborate hair-brained schemes by such skinny jeans wearing cucks that don't even know what their gender is.

So what we've been seeing reminds me of Emmitt Till in the worst possible ways.

After his death and his mother made sure to have an open-casket, there were two narratives swirling around Mississippi at the time. They were 1) any N-word deserved the fate Emmitt received for the actions portrayed and 2)the men accused couldn't be guilty because the boy they pulled from that swamp wasn't him... it was an imposter and the "REAL" Emmitt was living the high life in Chicago sucking down govt benefits and harassing white women.

Seriously. That's a real thing. That's their response. He deserved getting lynched and there was ZERO wrongs both morally legally committed by the men accused, but also, it wasn't even him so why are these Yankees so upset.

That was the collective, community, grass-roots response to a 14yr old boy that had had his arms and legs broken, was beaten senselessly and then shot in the head with a 45 ACP and then dumped on in a swamp.

That's how deep and dark and white supremacy is. That's the levels the average southerners brain will go to with that kind of horror and inhumanity.

And people here and the real world think there is some kind of "proof" that will change their minds or even allow their minds to accept reality? And I'm not talking about admitting reality. I'm just talking about accepting it, privately and honestly. But some mfers round here think they'll actually cop to it and admit it publicly?

No way. Their brains are fried. Their insecurity about having smaller dicks. Their laziness. Their eternal inferiority complex will never NEVER allow that.

And everything I just said was 60 years before Fox News was a thing. So now imagine a universe with a master manipulator and huckster running Fox News, saying those things and providing cover.

It's worse now, is the point. But don't pin the blame of Fox News. This shiat was here when Rupert Murdoch was still imaging a life when he could take his secretaries because that was the height of power at the time.

You mean the rally that y'all helped organize? The one you hyped up? The one you advertised? The one you covered with rapt abandon? Was Donnie trying to go down and hang out with those Lefties? What about that Brave Patriot that got herself shot in the face, that you screamed up and down that she was murdered, but now is apparently just a low level protestor, a coffee girl?

Y'all were all for this thing, when you thought you were about to become a State sponsored agency. You were excited to see members of Congress lynched right then and there. I know it's asking a lot to have the courage of your convictions, when you don't have any other than chasing a pay day, but damn this makes y'all look more than a li'l desperate.

Point is. The people of the Republican Party today are no different than your average klansman in 1950. They want the credit for a lynching. They want everyone to know it was them, but they also know the world looks down on their crimes and actions and motives and they don't want to be called out.

It's basically your average comedian who regularly rapes or assaults women who wants to be known as edgy, but also immune from any criticism because he's got such thin skin he might implode because gravity and science and shiat.

None of this new for humanity or our civilization. Bad people want the credit for atrocities but don't want to be forced by Eisenhower's troops to stack the dead bodies like cordwood. They want the prestige of being the bully, but don't want to be labeled as the bully.

It's like a not well-known thing how Tony Sirico went ballistic and got a line changed in the sopranos. When the madame referred to Paulie the original line was "He doesn't like paulie. He's a bully. But if Vince knew you were on his side, he knew he was ok." But Sirico had a HUGE beef with the word "bully" so he got them to change it to "psycho". But the entire farking premise of the mafia was they were bullies. They just didn't want to be labeled as such because bullies are low life degenerate pieces of shiat who use their facade of toughness to hide their insecurity about not being real men. And lazy. And stupid.

That's what we face now in the political realm.

So the avg republican today WANTS credit for Jan 6, but also doesn't want to be called a traitor piece of lowlife shiat because that's universally looked down upon. So trump was a strong man big dicked victorious dictator leading the troops into battle... but the instant the battle was lost? All those people were Brooklyn yuppies in skinny jeans who identified as a cast iron skillet, or whatever.

Victory has a 1000 followers, etc. but also how they KNOW they're the bad guys. They know what they're doing is villain shiat. They just hate being labeled by society and public opinion as the villain.

The difference is the media was different than. Fox News was specifically  created to get Republican propaganda out because the news programs at the time were hard news.

Roger Allies , later of Fox News fame, was Nixon's TV campaign producer. He built a news network where he could say anything as long as it was sprinkled in with truth a bit of truth from time to time.

The later elimination of the fairness doctrine removed one effective tool that the Dems had to combat Republican hate campaigns. Essentially, the country is still living in the backlash from the civil war. The progress made in the 60's and 70's inspired the right to come up with a long term plan to use the system against itself.

The right has been talking itself into a civil war for 40 years.

Every so often FoxNews executives are pressured to test the waters of acting like a real news service during an important historic event which argues against the prevailing narrative, such as the J6 hearings.

FoxNews is repeatedly punished by its audience for showing that content, because when they did show a hearing, a good chunk of viewers--something like 70% I think--flipped the channel to something more comforting during those times, proving that executives and the lawyers are correct that they aren't in the news business and their audience will leave if they show it to them, and that costs real money to the company.

Fox is the big dog in right wing media and has the ability to drive the daily narrative. Fox's daily hate nurture and develops these ignorant racists into blindly obeying killing machines. Fox is not the only problem but it's a big one and they don't deserve to broadcast their race war porn.

I don't think it would violate their 1st amendment rights if someone at least did something about them being called Fox "News".

Don't know. With this SCOTUS, a lawsuit might end in a big sweeping ruling that companies can now make blatantly false claims in their marketing without any accountability.

FoxNews viewers are no different than Trump. They know it is a lie but they don't care. They will justify their actions in any way they can just because they want it to happen. There is no reasoning with them,there is no bargaining with them. They are just spoiled dishonest tools that will do and say anything to get what they want.

The J6 Committee has Liz Cheney - Dick Cheney's daughter - as one of the committee members. The reason it has been going so smoothly is because it doesn't have Trump sycophant and possible co-conspirator Jim Jordan on the committee. The committee is getting results as witnesses and evidence are being shown that shows how deep the rot was on and before Jan 6th. That Trump wanted the magnetometers removed because the heavily armed crowd wasn't there to hurt him, but he was wanting to join them in marching to the capital with their guns. That he did not care that Pence could have been killed and said that "he deserves it". He kept spreading the Big Lie even after his own Attorney General said it was "bullshiat". That Rudy Giuliani tried sending fake electors to DC from states Biden won, including Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. That Trump is trying like a mob boss to intimidate witnesses.

Almost every witness called before the committee has an (R) after their name. The J6 committee are the sane Republicans trying to cut a cancer out of the party, which goes by the name of Donald John Trump, before that cancer kills the party.

68% of Fox VIewers need to be committed to psychiatric care since they are clearly delusional and detached from reality. The other 32% will soon follow.

Fox is nothing but propaganda for the right. Republicans, arrogant cops (starting with the show COPS - ever notice how it was never the first cop responding on camera? And if you knew the camerafolk, less than 2% of incidents recorded ever made it to the screen for good reason. Anyone who has seen a real police response would know it was all cop propaganda, copaganda if you will).

So yeah, if they start watching Fox, they are mentally deficient. Cognitive declined, dumb as fark. Fox is huge on gaslighting and emotional triggering to promote their bias. Most of their national news is white supremacist propaganda. Most of their local news stations are better, but the undertones are still there. Even more humorous when the term I heard was "The Aryan Milf Anchor" when referring to the evening anchors on 5 or so affiliate stations in the region form a Fox Cameraman who pointed out all the subtle crap they do with how they speak to marginalize non-white, non-American types in stories even if it sounds like a feel-good story. The words they use are manipulative - i.e. 'The adored little white girl' versus 'the troubled young black female criminal' when you find out the 'white girl' here was killing animals and the 'black female criminal' wrote on a brick wall with sidewalk chalk. Yes, they do that kind of crap. It warps people's minds who watch it.

If its insidious manipulation, its Fox News, baby!
