Uncle Ruckus Does a Meltdown on Faux News

Michael Whaley, whose tirade against BlackLiveMatter on Youtube, and mentioned in my post “Uncle Ruckus Syndrome” earned himself a interview on the racist trolling Faux News…

As discussed by several folks in my comment section – there were some questions as to whether the boy in the YouTube indeed had a full set of marbles. Faux News, willing to give an audience to any Uncle Tom willing to go on camera criticizing the Black Community, BlackLIvesMatter, or any other thing racial snapped up Whaley…

To their regret.

“We need to teach kids to overcome diversity!”: Megyn Kelly gets more than she bargained for when #AllLivesMatter advocate goes off the rails

On “The Kelly File” Tuesday night, host Megyn Kelly spoke to Michael Whaley, an African-American Marine whose anti-#BlackLivesMatter video went viral over the weekend.

In the video, Whaley accused the movement of “encouraging black people to kill white people” — encouragement to which he attributed the murder of Officer Darren Goforth in Houston last Friday. That wasn’t the only Fox News talking point/marching order Whaley indulged in, as he also claimed that “black people can’t accept the truth about themselves,” and need to focus on the fact that “all lives matter.”

Given that Whaley’s video essentially repeated everything that Fox News’ white hosts and guests have been arguing for weeks now, it’s not surprising that Kelly’s producers booked him for an appearance. After all, there’s just something different about him that could lend their arguments the appearance of greater credibility. But back to the interview with Kelly, in which Whaley briefly recapitulated his/their argument before noting that the black community is even more complicit in its own destruction than Kelly assumed.

“What about the ‘no snitch rule’?” Kelly asked. “This was the first I’ve heard about that, for why black people in the inner cities don’t speak up more about black-on-black crime.”

Whaley expressed disbelief, saying “the ‘no snitch rule,’ you know, you’ve probably heard of it before, so I don’t understand why you say it’s your first time hearing about it. There’s been a ‘no snitch rule for a long time.”

“But in this context, it was new,” Kelly clarified, wholly unconvincingly. Even if she had heard of the rule, the fact that she hadn’t thought about the context of the black community enough to consider its implications in this context speaks volumes about the depth of her concern with the plight of black communities in the inner city.

Her inability to make this simple, obvious connection seemed to unnerve him, so after explaining the rule to Kelly, Whaley went on a bizarre rant that began by noting that Jesus’ people had him crucified, but he loved them anyway, and ended by him asserting that “black people and white people aren’t enemies, there’s somebody else behind closed doors, that’s actually pulling the strings, that’s actually causing racism in America.” He didn’t specify who this someone or someones is, but from the look on Kelly’s face, she was clearly afraid he was going to name names. Instead, Whaley veered off in yet another direction.

“It starts with education,” he argued, “we need to teach our kids to overcome diversity, to accept criticism of our races. The #BlackLivesMatter movement is encouraging black people to throw away their lives for something most white people of this generation weren’t a part of, and can’t control. That’s history, let’s not look at the negative things in history. History tends to repeat itself.”

At this point, an uncomfortable Kelly had tried to cut him off three or four times, and finally did so successfully, saying “I hear you, I hear you. We appreciate you coming on, telling us your perspective.”

Whooops!

Faux News Bimbo vs the Hasbro Hamster

The controversy! See the similarity?

Other than one has a head filled with plastic nuts, and the other with fecal material…I don’t really see any.

Fox News’ Harris Faulkner sues Hasbro for $5 million over alleged theft of persona and likeness

Deadline Hollywood’s Dominic Patten reports that Fox News contributor and “Outnumbered” co-host Harris Faulkner is suing Hasbro for $5 million for stealing her name and likeness and using them in a “demeaning and insulting” fashion on an adorable hamster in its Littlest Pet Shop line of toys.

Faulkner’s lawyers alerted the toy manufacturer to the problem in January, but the toy remained available on shelves and online well into the summer. (It appears to have been pulled from online retailers as of this writing.) In her 15-page filing, Faulkner’s lawyers contended that “Hasbro’s manufacture, sale, and distribution of the Harris Faulkner Hamster Doll is extremely concerning and distressing to Faulkner.”

“In addition to its prominent and unauthorized use of Faulkner’s name, elements of the Harris Faulkner Hamster Doll also bear a physical resemblance to Faulkner’s traditional professional appearance, in particular tone of its complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup,” the filing continued. As to the legitimacy of that claim, it’s worth noting that both Harris Faulkners do in fact have complexions, eyes, and are apparently wearing makeup.

Moreover, Faulkner’s lawyers argued that “Hasbro’s capitalization on Faulkner’s name, likeness, identity, and persona is underscored with the display of the ‘TM’ symbol after her name and a statement on the back of the packaging that this symbol ‘denote[s] U.S. Trademark’ that — falsely — claims that Hasbro owns a United States trademark in ‘Harris Faulkner.’”

Most importantly, Faulkner’s filing revealed that the Fox News personality doesn’t want her brand associated with choking hazards — ironic, given the response many eating lunch while watching “Outnumbered” have had. In short, “[t]his means that Hasbro misappropriated Faulkner’s name, likeness, identity, [and] persona without consent, for its own profit, for the purpose of capitalizing off of her good name and persona, all at Faulkner’s expense.”

Because when you’re shopping for the perfect toy for that hard-to-please child, “Does it bear a resemblance to a daytime Fox News co-host?” is the first question that pops into your head.

There might be one thing…Hasbro probably should have called the toy a rat instead of a Hamster…

I guess the Muppets better look out, cause Kermit’s new girlfriend does sorta look like that Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer…At least until Miss Piggy finds out about the affair!

Bill O’Reilly is “The One reporter on national news who has done the most to highlight racially motivated violence”

It doesn’t get any funnier!

Bunch of things wrong here.

1. Most black folks are a bit wary of strange right-wing white folks waving cameras at a Civil Rights meeting – something to do with COINTELPRO trying to create dirt on MLK in the Civil Rights Movement days, James Keen/Breitbart’s fake white pimp videos to attack ACORN, and the fake Shirley Sherrod video… Their history in abusing the medium precedes them.

2. To be the “Gestapo”…You have to be in charge. Sorta like the old Russian KGB…You ARE the government. I haven’t seen any evidence the BlacLivesMatters is running the country …Yet…But one can always hope.

3. O’Reilly blackmails a low level Fox Reporter with the question. Faced with the choice of getting fired, or kissing O’Reilly’s behind – she punts with “I don’t know” to O’Liars’s pandering question.

Hysterical Fox News Man Compares #BlackLivesMatter to Gestapo

On Wednesday, Fox’s Bill O’Reilly highlighted a reporter who tried to cover a Black Lives Matter protest in Chicago but was told to turn off his camera by activists. O’Reilly somehow linked that to black-on-black crime, the condemnation of white people and himself as the reporter giving the most coverage to the Black Lives Matter movement. Also: Nazis.

While he’s smart for trolling America on a nightly basis, in this case, Bill O’Reilly isn’t funny, he’s dangerous. As countless black people die at the hands of police and random white people likeDylann Roof feel empowered to murder churchgoers, O’Reilly still thinks race baiting is a timely joke. It’s not.

Last night during O’Reilly’s chat with Andrea Tantaros and Jehmu Greene, Tantaros speculated that the Black Lives Matter movement will protest outside of the Republican National Convention next year but was somehow befuddled as to why they wouldn’t protest outside of the Democratic National Convention.

On the other side, as Greene tried to explain that she understood the anger exhibited by the protestors captured on tape but didn’t agree with their demand to turn the reporter’s camera off, O’Reilly cut her off and compared the activists to … the Nazis.

“Their message means nothing if they do these gestapo tactics, they lose all credibility,” he said. “Their message will only fall on ears sympathetic to them.”

Bill O’Reilly Compares #BlackLivesMatter Movement To Gestapo

Bill O’Reilly compared the Black Lives Matter movement to the gestapo Wednesday night, shortly before proclaiming he is the reporter who has done the most to “shed light” on violence against young black men.

During a segment on “The O’Reilly Factor,” O’Reilly and Fox News commentator Andrea Tantaros discussed a Black Lives Matter conference in Ohio where attendees prevented a reporter from filming.

“Their message means nothing if they do these gestapo tactics,” O’Reilly said. “They lose all credibility. The group is never going to be taken seriously.”

It’s unclear how the gestapo — the Nazi secret police group dedicated to oppressing and terrorizing Jews, gay people, and basically anyone the Nazis deemed undesirable — is at all similar to a group that fights the oppression and brutalization of black people by law enforcement in the U.S.

Less than a minute later, O’Reilly asked Fox News correspondent Jehmu Greene, “The reporter in this country who has shed the most light on young black men being killed is who?” When Greene said she didn’t know, O’Reilly informed her, “That would be me.”

If by “shedding light,” O’Reilly means using debunked statistics to downplay police brutality, he’s right.

O’Reilly’s criticisms of Black Lives Matter are notably inconsistent. His “gestapo” comment came just one day after he criticized the movement for being “anarchistic” — a trait not exactly typically linked to Nazi-like behavior.

Battle With the Bloviate – Hannity Ripped By Norton-Holmes

Hannity gets miffed Eleanor Holmes-Norton, the Congressional Representative from Washington, DC won’t all into debating his racist baiting…

Hannity tries to use a tried conservatwerp racist technique, which is to try and force the other person to argue on behalf of their racist imagination. Ergo – to become the perfect foil for their poor argument. Holmes sticks to her guns…And Hannity looks like a fool.

Way to go, Congresswoman!
