Video of the Week – April 24, 2021

FOX News host and far-right sycophant Tucker Carlson invited Ed Gavin, a former New York City corrections officer, to opine on the conviction of Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis on Tuesday, April 20.  When Gavin said Chauvin’s actions were “pure savagery”, Carlson reacted in the only way a right-wing extremist would.

Worst Quotes of the Week – April 3, 2021

“I own an AR-15. If there’s a natural disaster in South Carolina where the cops can’t protect my neighborhood, my house will be the last one that the gang will come to because I can defend myself.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, during a discussion with FOX News’ Chris Wallace about last week’s mass shooting at a supermarket in Colorado

“But the last vestige of the pro-American meritocracy still standing was the U.S. military. From the progressive perspective, the military was too masculine, had way too many Republicans, and a dangerous knack of turning minorities into patriotic, self-reliant conservatives. This could not stand.  Michelle Obama’s decision to make military spouses her top initiative as First Lady was the first clue that they had their sights set on the U.S. Armed Forces.”

Rachel Campos-Duffy, on FOX News Primetime, April 1

Campos-Duffy was a member of MTV’s “Real World – San Francisco” cast in 1994 where her conservative views often put her at odds with her housemates.  I actually recall seeing her on that show.

“It’s time to teach corporate America that if they attack Georgia or any state like it for doing what they did to secure their right to vote, these corporations are going to face the wrath of GOP officials as well as the tens of millions of American consumers who support them. That means lobbyists and CEOs, they need to be told in no uncertain terms if you try to help the left rig elections, we’re going to punish you.”

Laura Ingraham, reacting to protests by corporations over Georgia’s new voting restrictions

Best Quotes of the Week – January 23, 2021

“This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge.  Unity is the path forward. And we must meet this moment as the United States of America. If we do that, I guarantee you we will not fail.”

President Joe Biden, in his inaugural address

“The idea that you can get up here and … let the science speak, it is somewhat of a liberating feeling.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, speaking about the COVID-19 pandemic during a White House press conference

“We cut taxes for $5 trillion, almost all of it to the wealthiest people in America.  And we borrowed every penny to do that.”

Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), criticizing the sudden concern about the U.S. budget deficit by his Republican colleagues during a U.S. Senate hearing

Bennet added that “we’ve made some poor choices in terms of what we’ve borrowed money to spend on.  Two wars in the Middle East that lasted for 20 years that cost us something like $5.6 trillion, all of which was borrowed, none of which was paid for.”

“Opine all you like, but if you’re going to opine, begin with the truth and opine from there.  When people begin with a false premise and lead people astray, that’s injurious to society and it’s the antithesis of what we should be doing: Those of us who are so honored and grateful to have a platform of public influence have to use it for the public good.”

Shephard Smith, former FOX News host and current CNBC anchor, on why he left FOX

Smith also revealed that he stayed at Fox News from its 1996 inception until 2019 to act as a counterbalance to the network’s right-wing leanings.

Most Chicken-Shit Quote of the Week – November 28, 2020

“Unless the legal situation changes in a dramatic and, frankly, an unlikely manner, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20.  To say this constitutes living in reality, and if I offered you a false reality, if I told you that there was an excellent, phenomenal chance that the Supreme Court was going to step in and deliver a victory for President Trump, I’d be lying to you.”

Laura Ingraham, on her FOX News program “The Angle”

Remaining bitter, haggard and antagonistic, Ingraham still managed to spew out more election fraud conspiracy hype.

Worst Quote of the Week – July 11, 2020

“Some folks are still trying to pretend that all of this mayhem will stop if we just let the Democrats have the White House. Well, we have the Democrats in power in Atlanta, in Chicago, in New York, in Baltimore and beyond and beyond. What’s happened?

“So, this thinking is foolish and naive. The Democrats have shown they’re utterly unwilling to restrain the hard left from seizing property and committing violence. And as for the culture wars, why would the radicals stop when they think they are winning?

“So, ignore the folks who say that it just gets better when we let the Democrats have more power.

“The only way this situation gets better is for Democrats to lose, and lose so often that they are forced to apologize for their relentless slandering of our nation’s history, and by extension, the majority of our citizens who still unapologetically love this country and still believe that it’s worth celebrating.”

Laura Ingraham, FOX News commentator, demanding that Democrats apologize for slandering American history.

Worst Quote of the Week – June 12, 2020

Coulter Capitulates

mccarthy-grave

“OK fine, let’s do that, but in the end, at some point, if the Bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone’s taxes go up, I promise you Republicans will get blamed for it.  “It doesn’t mean you cave on everything, but there are some things Republicans do that feed into what the media is telling America about Republicans.”

– Ann Coulter, admitting to Sean Hannity on FOX News that taxes on the wealthy should be raised.

At last!  There’s a victory on the reasonable front!  Now, if we could get more conservatives to admit George W. Bush’s tax policies are what screwed up the economy in the first place, we’d be on the road to recovery.  Getting over denial is always the toughest part.
