What happens when a fake journalist tries to argue with a real one. Jorge puts the windbag in his place on immigration…
As Jorge points out, the who brouhaha coming from the right has a lot more to do with the fact the folks coming here from the South are brown skinned…Than illegal.
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.
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!
This is a Faux News devotee. He truly believes the “Black Panthers” exist anymore…
This one comes straight out of the “Handbook” on the murder of unarmed black civilians for minor infractions…
Except the victim in this case wasn’t black…or Hispanic.
In a letter sent to the U.S. Attorney General and the FBI Director asking for a federal civil rights investigation into the shooting death of Zachary Hammond, the attorney for the slain teen’s family claims he has a witness who saw Seneca Police Department officers celebrate the shooting by “high-fiving” the teen’s lifeless body.
According to Fox Carolina, the letter details other accusations against officers involved in the shooting including a witness saying an officer pulled the teen’s body from his car and then placed something beneath it.
The 19-year-old Taylor was killed in a Hardee’s parking lot in late July after being shot twice by Lt. Mark Tiller who claimed the teen drove his car directly at him while he was attempting to make a drug bust.
“The driver accelerated and came toward the officer. He fired two shots in self-defense, which unfortunately were fatal for the suspect,” explained Chief John Covington.
A private pathologists’ report found that Hammond was shot twice, once in the left shoulder from behind and once in the left side of his chest.
According to the letter sent by Taylor family attorney Eric Bland, a witness states “… the officer who opened Zachary’s door and pulled his dead body from the vehicle then went ‘to the trunk of his police car and pulled (SIC) something out. The officer walked back over to the man on the ground rolled him over to his side, put something underneath his body, and then rolled him back.’”
The letter goes on to state, “…a police officer with a neighboring police force has confirmed to SLED that the Seneca Police Department celebrated the killing of Zachary by desecrating his corpse. After Zachary had been shot and killed, member(s) of the Seneca Police Department lifted his dead hand and ‘high fived’ Zachary Hammond.”
The case is currently under consideration for a federal civil rights probe, with the State Law Enforcement Division agents denying a formal request to turn over body cam footage of the incident to the media prior to finishing their investigation.
Officer Tiller is currently on administrative leave.
Makes you wonder if the conservatives who attack every black victim of an illicit Police shooting will try and “dirty up” Hammonds reputation, and accuse him of being a “thug” who was rightfully shot by “heroic” Police…
Makes you wonder is the same conservatives will be spamming the Internet with “Don’t resist” as they have in every case where the victim was black, no matter how egregious the Officer’s actions were.
Perhaps when enough of those white conservative’s children run into that very small portion of “Bad Cops” who shoot first, then lie about what happened…
A few of those still lucid enough after Faux News indoctrination…Will wake up.
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.
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 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.
