Yeah, he did.
And anyone who thinks this is the end of the line with disinformation being peddled is kidding him/herself.
My guess is that MOST, if not all, conservative media outlets are doing the same thing...SELLING BULLSHIT TO INSURE THEY DO NOT LOSE VIEWERSHIP.
American conservatives, especially the MAGA element, demand that their news sources bolster their fantasies. So "bolster their fantasies" is what that media element will do.
FOX, Breitbart, Washington Times, NY Post, Newsmax...are all cesspools and swamps for MAGA moron to swim in.
The basic problem isn't so much with the news, it's with people. That people are believing it. That they're willing to overlook what they see and hear and buy into these conspiracy theories. Like Oralloy calling the Jan 6 a peaceful protest when it was anything but.
The hope is, that if Fox loses this lawsuit (and there's a very real possibility they will), that these quasi-"news" organizations like Fox, OAN, Newsmax and other far right lie dispensaries will think twice before continuing to knowingly spread bullshit to their eager, idiot viewers.
Fox News is pushing the idea that being "woke" is a bad thing...
King James Bible
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
Be enlightened, don't remain ignorant. Should the Christian remain asleep and simply rest on their laurels?
I don't expect that anyone at Fox News has either read or studied the Bible.
It is more about creating a imaginary division so profit-driven political people can control the religious block. And how religious is that block?
January 6th looked a lot like a mob wanting to crucify an innocent man.
One wonders how those who claim to be Christian can become so misled to seek to crucify Christ afresh.
Isn't that what "holy mass" is, a reenactment of the crucifixion?
And Nero fiddled while Rome burned...
not sure who needs to hear this --
stop giving FoxNews ratings!
Great post Region!
It does not take a high IQ to believe so many lies.
The IQ comes when one questions and confronts those lies and does not follow along simply to strengthen a corrupt and destructive party.
Republican trash is what they really are! Ever since the Republican Party embraced Ayn Rand as their mascot it has been a race to the bottom of the barrel. Each attempting to be more shocking than the next. Like most talentless bullies, they want power for the sake of power. Not to help humanity. To be a conservative these days, being cruel and full of hate is a prerequisite. The GOP has always been a haven for those who are mean-spirited.
Fact check: Republicans at CPAC make false claims about Biden, Zelensky, the FBI and children
The Conservative Political Action Conference is underway in Maryland. And the members of Congress, former government officials and conservative personalities who spoke at the conference on Thursday and Friday made false claims about a variety of topics.
Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio uttered two false claims about President Joe Biden. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia repeated a debunked claim about Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Sen. Tommy Tuberville of Alabama used two inaccurate statistics as he lamented the state of the country. Former Trump White House official Steve Bannon repeated his regular lie about the 2020 election having been stolen from Trump, this time baselesly blaming Fox for Trump’s defeat.
Another WTF?? moment...
Texas property tax bill excludes divorced, LGBTQ couples from getting relief
BY BROOKE MIGDON - 03/03/23 2:24 PM ET
A new Texas House bill that provides property tax relief based on the size of a family excludes LGBTQ couples and divorced parents with children, among other parties, from getting the tax advantage.
Texas House Bill 2889, introduced this week by state Rep. Bryan Slaton (R), would supply a homestead tax credit to “certain married couples” in the state with either biological or adopted children of any age.
Qualifying couples under the bill are entitled to annual tax relief corresponding to the size of their family, with four children equal to a possible 40 percent property tax reduction. Couples with 10 or more children may pay no property tax at all, according to the bill.
But the GOP-backed legislation does not propose granting tax relief to all Texas families, and only couples in heterosexual marriages are entitled to benefits. Couples with at least one partner who has been divorced are also ineligible. Couples who had or adopted children before they were married also can’t use those children to improve their tax liability.
“Supporting Texas means supporting Texas families,” Slaton wrote this week on social media. “Families are the building blocks of society. We must support families by making it easier for them to have and raise kids.”
“With HB 2889, Texas will start saying: ‘Get married, stay married, and be fruitful and multiply,’” Slaton added, a reference to a Christian sermon on marriage.
In a news release this week, Slaton said his bill intends to lift the state’s falling birth rate by establishing financial incentives for child-rearing. The proposed law is inspired by policies enacted in Poland and Hungary, he said.
Slaton did not directly acknowledge that his bill makes sure to exclude same-sex couples and those who have been divorced and remarried, which the Bible considers to be sins. During this legislative session, Slaton has also introduced bills to bar minors from attending drag performances and classify gender-affirming health care for transgender youth as child abuse under state law.
In June, the Texas Republican Party adopted a platform recognizing homosexuality as an “abnormal lifestyle choice” and opposing “all efforts to validate transgender identity.”
At CPAC, Donald Trump Jr. just disgustingly attacked disabled people, just like his father did.
Here is the direct quote from Don Jr.:
“Pennsylvania managed to elect a vegetable. I’d love for John Fetterman to have good gainful employment. Maybe he could be like a bag guy at a grocery store, but is it unreasonable for me to expect, as a citizen of the United States of America, to have a US Senator have basic cognitive function?”
Yes Don Jr. is an ignorant piece of crap!
When republicans woke up and found they were all bigots and racists they wanted to go back to sleep. Can anyone blame them? Who needs a wide awake racist around anyway?
Woke woke woke woke woke...
