Fox Goes Rightwing Hate After Deranged Trump Hater Baseball Practice Attack









After this week's suicide by cop of the Republican congressional baseball team practice shooter, some on the right (very public figures) have embarked on what seems a case (or cause) for violence. The more visible of the lot happen to work at FOXPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network). 

We really do not expect rational and nationally cohesive programming  from FOXPEN as the network isn't a news network; it has a business model which focuses on specific demographics (on the white male age 35 to death and in many cases his wife of significant other) while serving as the communication go to place for the Republican Party and America's conservatives. As is the case with all business mission and goals, its major focus is giving the customer (viewer) what they want: a basic requirement of all for-profit businesses. A model which leads to frequent far-right rhetoric, unabashed demagoguery and a consistent aura of anti-minority broadcasting. 

We are now speaking about the need to find common cause in Washington DC. Well, trust us, total cohesiveness will never take place as such doesn't fit the political stratagems of the GOP. What would the party be without that dedicated southern block of states which are an will remain red throughout our lifetime? What would the GOP be if it did not have a solid lock on far western states with an exception for California Oregon and Washington State? How would the party (consistently) win elections if it wasn't successful via pitting certain white voting blocs against African-American and Latinos? The 1970s "Southern Strategy" is as real and critical to the GOP as its white male oriented aura and over-the-top claims of Christian purity. All with over-the-top exhortations to violence throughout the Trump campaign. 

Take a look at a meme with images of people who were reported to have followed Trump's orders to hate on the press, hate on perceived non-supporter and people who were Trump supporters in general.




We readily admit cases of anti-Trump supporters harassing Trump supporters, yet we truly believe that cases are fewer and with much less violence. We will avoid capturing cases of Trump su[orters harassing non Fox News media for sake of time and web space.

We opened with comments about Fox News's mission regarding all things Trump, all things conservative and other related matters.  We offer a set of Facebook or Twitter posts with video and comment from Fox News demagogues as well as comment from the ever-present and totally irresponsible Newt Gingrich.

No liberal ideology isn't at the root of all things bad in our society. 




A quick consideration regarding Gingrich. He seems to have found cause to reverse his position on former FBI Director Mueller as Special Counsel in the Trump/Russia investigation.

Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down

Just over one month later!

Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. Look who he is hiring.check fec reports. Time to rethink.

Excuse the Gingrich exhibition. He is as credible as any Fox News host.
Fox News (as bad as it is) host Melissa Franics took on camera exception to Gingrich's demagogery.









So ugly, so dangerous and so divisive yet no surprise.

Fortunately, there are counter-voices in media. a few words from a true professional and a person grounded in rational thought and no FOXPEN contract.
