There was no Russia hoax, Covid hoax, or hunter hoax.

Sandman was a little white prick that attended a school where students wore blackface to games against teams with black players.

Fox news is crap and they pander to racists.


this is why no one can ever respect anything that you say.

The covid hoax - that is is still iffy

The russian Hoax and the hunter hoax are settled science dude.

Why We Are Leaving Fox News​

A brief explanation.​

View attachment 567300

We joined Fox News as contributors in early 2009. Combined, that’s more than 20 years of experience, relationships, and friendships. For most of that time, we were proud to be associated with the network, if not necessarily with every program, opinion, or scandal that aroused controversy. We believed, sincerely, that the country needed Fox News. Whether you call it liberal media bias or simply a form of groupthink around certain narratives, having a news network that brought different assumptions and asked different questions—while still providing real reporting and insightful conservative analysis and opinion—was good for the country and journalism.

Fox News still does real reporting, and there are still responsible conservatives providing valuable opinion and analysis. But the voices of the responsible are being drowned out by the irresponsible.

A case in point: Patriot Purge, a three-part series hosted by Tucker Carlson.

The special—which ran on Fox’s subscription streaming service earlier this month and was promoted on Fox News—is presented in the style of an exposé, a hard-hitting piece of investigative journalism. In reality, it is a collection of incoherent conspiracy-mongering, riddled with factual inaccuracies, half-truths, deceptive imagery, and damning omissions. And its message is clear: The U.S. government is targeting patriotic Americans in the same manner —and with the same tools—that it used to target al Qaeda.

“The domestic war on terror is here. It’s coming after half of the country,” says one protagonist. “The left is hunting the right, sticking them in Guantanamo Bay for American citizens—leaving them there to rot,” says another, over video of an individual in an orange jumpsuit being waterboarded.

This is not happening. And we think it’s dangerous to pretend it is. If a person with such a platform shares such misinformation loud enough and long enough, there are Americans who will believe—and act upon—it.

This isn’t theoretical. This is what actually happened on January 6, 2021.

Over the past five years, some of Fox’s top opinion hosts amplified the false claims and bizarre narratives of Donald Trump or offered up their own in his service.

They are lying out their ass.

Was Fox wrong about the Russia Hoax?

Covid Hoax?

Hunter Hoax hidden?

Sandman rich as frick Kid?

Just answer yes or no to those first
Don’t forget about the FBI labeling parents against CRT as TERRORISTS
Calling the GREATEST threat to this Country is WHITE SUPREMACY, NOTHING about the over 400 riots in 2020.

In a Republic, actually
“The domestic war on terror is here. It’s coming after half of the country,” says one protagonist. “The left is hunting the right, sticking them in Guantanamo Bay for American citizens—leaving them there to rot,” says another, over video of an individual in an orange jumpsuit being waterboarded.
It’s remarkable that anyone believes such ridiculous lies.

No I ain't. I am laughing at you clods.

Yes, your whole political agenda is to “own the left” but you’re the only ones playing. Republican have been screwing over working Americans for 40 years. You’re done.

The left just wants to get on with living their best lives. You need to wander in the wilderness for a while and remember who you’re working for, and it ain’t the corporations.

You are so dumb. Democrats are the ones screwing over the middle class.
