Conservatives Caught Sharing ‘How-To Run Over People’ Video (GRAPHIC)

15 August 2017

[Rupert Murdoch‘s Fox News employee] Tucker Carlson’s website the Daily Caller posted a video demonstrating how you should run over liberal protesters. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

The Daily Caller in January posted a video compilation of “cars plowing through protesters,” instructing readers to “Study the technique” as “it may prove useful in the next four years.”

The video was compiled by Mike Raust, the Daily Caller’s video editor. It features a number of clips of people in cars and trucks driving through protestors blocking roads.

“If you are easily triggered, stop watching now,” a text at the start of the video reads. “Too late,” the next text says, as a truck drives through a protester. The compilation is set to a terrible acoustic rendition of Ludacris’ 2002 hit “Move Bitch.”

In an accompanying caption, Raust wrote: “Here’s a compilation of liberal protesters getting pushed out of the way by cars and trucks. Study the technique; it may prove useful in the next four years” — ostensibly a reference to protests in response to Donald Trump’s presidency.

“None of these clips are new, but that doesn’t mean they’re not still fresh,” Raust concluded.” …

As of writing the Raust video remains up on the Daily Caller and Fox Nation websites.

Black Lives Splatter racist decal from nazi site Daily Stormer

This variation on the United States racist “All Lives Splatter” decal which encourages drivers to wound or kill protesters against police brutality is specifically a call to kill or injure supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement. It is from the nazi Internet site Daily Stormer, one of the organisers of the Charlottesville violent fascist rally. The murderer of Heather Heyer got his inspiration from this.

From Esquire:

[Tennessee] State Rep[ublican] Rep[resentative] Matthew Hill has filed a bill that says if a driver hits a protester who is blocking traffic in a public right-of-way, then that driver would be immune to civic liability if the demonstrator is hit and hurt, as long as it wasn’t intentional. “If you want to protest, fine, I am for peaceful protesting, not lawless rioters,” Hill said. “We don’t want anyone to be hurt, but people should not knowingly put themselves in harm’s way when you’ve got moms and dads trying to get their kids to school.”

Klan Leader Celebrates Murder Of Heather Heyer

16 August 2017

This kind of behavior and rhetoric is par for the course among KKK members. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Brett Erlich, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.

“Leave it to a Klansman to disrespect a woman killed in a domestic terror attack mere days after her death.

According to the North Carolina-based news station WBTV, Justin Moore, a man who identified himself as the Grand Dragon for the Loyal White Knights of Ku Klux Klan claimed Heather Heyer deserved to die in the attack on counterprotesters at the “Unite the Right” rally.

“I’m sorta glad that them people got hit and I’m glad that girl died,” Moore said in a voicemail to WBTV. “They were a bunch of Communists out there protesting against somebody’s freedom of speech, so it doesn’t bother me that they got hurt at all.”

Moore went on to say that he thinks “we’re going to see more stuff like this happening at white nationalist events.””

Bree Newsome: Charlottesville is Latest Chapter in Long U.S. History of White Supremacist Terror

16 August 2017

Bree Newsome sparked a national debate in 2015 on Confederate monuments and symbols and their place in modern American society when she scaled a 30-foot flagpole in South Carolina and removed the Confederate flag from state Capitol grounds. Her action followed the massacre of nine African-American parishioners by a white supremacist at a Charleston church in South Carolina.

As police yelled for her to come down, she grabbed the Confederate flag and said, “You come against me with hatred … I come against you in the name of God. This flag comes down today.” Footage of the event went viral and was seen around the world. The next month, state legislators voted to remove the Confederate flag permanently, following mounting pressure.

We speak with artist and activist Bree Newsome about renewed efforts around the country to remove Confederacy symbols following this weekend’s deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia—where white nationalists and members of alt-right groups had gathered to protest the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a downtown park.

Liverpool’s Boycott Of [Rupert Murdoch‘s] The S*n: As Relevant Now As In 1989

13 April 2017

It’s 28 years since Kelvin MacKenzie presented a press agency report sourced from senior members of South Yorkshire Police and Tory MP Irvine Patnick on the front page of The S*n as ‘The Truth’ of what happened at Hillsborough on April 15, 1989.

The newspaper has been boycotted in Liverpool ever since.

In more recent times, newer campaigns ­– Total Eclipse Of The S*n and Shun The S*n – have pushed for retailers in the city not to sell The S*n, while in February of this year Liverpool FC announced S*n journalists are not welcome in Anfield’s press box or at the Melwood training ground.

Earlier this month, Roger Alton argued in [Conservative weekly] The Spectator that the club’s ban is wrong. Here Gareth Roberts argues the opposite, and says the ban, and the boycott, are as relevant as ever.

Corbyn slams ‘nazi-like’ Islamophobia in the Sun

Thursday 17th August 2017

Labour leader among 108 MPs condemning article on the ‘Muslim problem’

JEREMY CORBYN joined more than 100 MPs in condemning the “nazi-like language” used in a hate-filled Sun newspaper column that called for a “solution” to the “Muslim problem.”

The Labour leader said recent stories published by the right-wing tabloid “incite Islamophobia and stigmatise entire communities,” which is “wrong and dangerous and must be condemned … in the clearest possible terms.”

He was speaking out after Sun columnist Trevor Kavanagh suggested it was “acceptable to say Muslims are a specific rather than a cultural problem.”

Writing about recent sex gang convictions, Mr Kavanagh claimed that “the common denominator is Islam.”

And he concluded his venomous tirade by asking: “What will we do about the Muslim problem then?”

Mr Corbyn said: “With hate crimes against Muslims on the rise in Britain and neonazis inciting violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, we must stand in solidarity and unity with all our communities and not let hate divide us.”

A letter initiated by Labour MP Naz Shah and signed by 107 of her parliamentary colleagues called for Sun editor Tony Gallagher to “not only retract the article” but to “strongly consider whether Mr Kavanagh’s brand of bigotry fits with your vision for the paper.”

The letter said there was “little doubt” that Mr Kavanagh was comparing Muslims to the supposed “Jewish problem” — which led to the genocide of six million people in the nazis’ “Final Solution.”

Before Kavanagh, his ex-Murdoch media colleague, professional racist Katie Hopkins, had already demanded a “final solution” of the “Muslim problem”.

Press freedom campaigners said the publication of the column exposed the toothlessness of print media regulator the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso), which replaced the Press Complaints Commission in 2014.

Jewish and Muslim groups have complained to the regulator, but they fear it is powerless because the editors’ code offers religious and ethnic groups no protection against discrimination.

Mediawise spokesman Mike Jempson told the Star: “Public shaming of Trevor Kavanagh’s dog whistling in Murdoch’s Sun may be the only way to demonstrate abhorrence of his views.

“He explained that a comment column counts as “freedom of expression” falling outside the terms of the editors’ code, monitored by Ipso.

While it allows individuals who have been identified in news articles to complain about discrimination, there is no protection against generalised comments.

“In other words, complaints about much of the content of Julius Streicher’s Der Sturmer [a nazi newspaper] would not be upheld by Ipso if it were being published today.”

Ipso confirmed that it had received 227 complaints about the column.

The National Union of Journalists called on the press watchdog to carry out an immediate investigation into the prevalence of Islamophobia, racism and hatred being espoused in British newspapers following Mr Kavanagh’s article.

Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News sexual harassment again


This video from the USA says about itself:

5 August 2017

Fox News anchor Eric Bolling has been suspended pending an investigation into lewd messages he is accused of sending multiple female coworkers at Fox News and Fox Business Channel.

By Yashar Ali in the USA today:

New Sexual Harassment Allegations Leveled Against Fox News’ Eric Bolling

The accusations came just hours after the network announced it had suspended Bolling.

Three hours after Fox News announced it had suspended host Eric Bolling following allegations that he had sexually harassed female colleagues, a former Fox News guest leveled new accusations against him. Caroline Heldman, who appeared on the network frequently between 2008 and 2011, said Saturday that Bolling was one of three Fox News/Fox Business employees to subject her to sexual harassment.

Fox News announced Bolling’s suspension less than 24 hours after an exclusive HuffPost report revealed that the host had sent lewd text messages to female colleagues.

“Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement to HuffPost. The network did not immediately return request for comment on the new allegations against Bolling.

Bolling’s lawyer, Michael J. Bowe, did not immediately return a request for comment on Heldman’s accusations. …

Heldman referred to Bolling’s suspension in a post on her Facebook page, which HuffPost has confirmed belongs to her. ”My only surprise is that it took this long for people to come forward about Bolling’s behavior, which has been wildly inappropriate for years,” she said.

Heldman said she had also been subjected to sexual harassment by former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and former Fox News consultant Woody Fraser. Mother Jones was first to report this week that Heldman, under the penalty of perjury, signed a declaration stating that Fraser offered her a paid Fox News contributor gig in exchange for sex.

“I did hundreds of appearances on Fox and Fox Business from 2008 – 2011, and had multiple experiences with Bolling that caused grave concern to my friends and family. Bolling referred to me as ‘Dr. McHottie’ on air on four different occasions, and called me ‘smart, beautiful, and wrong’ on air twice,” Heldman wrote in her Facebook post.

“Bolling would also contact me via phone and text after shows, sometimes to apologize for his behavior (and then do it again), and sometimes just to talk. He said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have ‘fun.’ He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go. Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex,” she added. “I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017.” …

Heldman also suggested in her Facebook post that the lawyers investigating the sexual harassment claims leveled against Bolling should speak to the makeup artists at Fox News.

“Make-up artists at Fox are contract workers, so many are fearful of speaking up because they simply won’t be hired again,” Heldman said. “If any Fox executives are reading this, please include make-up artists in your assessment of the environment. They see and hear a lot, and are sometimes the target of harassment from hosts and guests.” …

Bolling is a co-host of “The Specialists,” a panel program that airs every weekday at 5 p.m. Eastern time. A source familiar with the matter told HuffPost that a rotating group of hosts will fill in for Bolling.

Bolling also hosts “Cashin’ In,” a weekly business show that airs on Saturdays.

Fox News host and Trump supporter Eric Bolling suspended ‘after sending unsolicited sexts to colleagues’. Bolling is the third high-profile member of staff at Fox to face sexual harassment allegations: here.

Rupert Murdoch and British election upset, Beatles parody


This 9 June 2017 satiric music video from Britain is called The Jeremy Corbeatles – “Fuck You, The Sun“.

It is a parody of the song Here Comes the Sun, by the Beatles.

Big right-wing media billionaire Rupert Murdoch ran away furiously from the election room of his Times newspaper when he heard that the British Conservatives had lost their majority in the general election.

It says about itself:

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn adapts a classic Beatles number for Rupert Murdoch, Paul Dacre and Richard Desmond.

LYRICS:

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Rupert Murdoch, I’ve tried my best to be magnanimous
Rupert Murdoch, I can’t contain it any more

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!

Paul Dacre, the smile has disappeared from your face
Paul Dacre, you can’t fool everyone all the time

Fuck you, The Sun!

FAKE: Fox News Interviews Imaginary “Swedish Defense Advisor”

27 February 2017

Fox News brings on Nils Bildt, a supposed expert on Sweden, to tell Bill O’Reilly‘s audience that there was some legitimacy in Donald Trump‘s claim of a recent Swedish terrorist attack, but actual Swedish national security officials have never heard of him.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Fake news isn’t new, you can ask Zinoviev

Monday 29th May 2017

“WE’VE always had fake news,” Stop the War convener Lindsey German told a Merthyr Rising discussion on the subject.

“It’s been around at least since the 1920s when the Zinoviev letter was invented and propagated in the newspapers to turn an election against Labour,” she said in the session featured on RT programme Renegade Inc.

And Alastair Campbell’s dodgy dossier claiming that Iraq could launch weapons of mass destruction against Britain in 45 minutes also came into this category, Ms German added.

Former British diplomat Craig Murray insisted that citizen journalism was “open to abuse” but no more than mainstream journalism.

Cardiff University School of Journalism lecturer Mike Berry reported on analysis of coverage of the banking crisis in newspapers and the BBC radio Today programme.

He pointed to the tendency to seek comments from sources in the City, pointing out: “These are not going to be people arguing for stronger reform of the banking industry.”
