I Was Born Free

"We're all one thing, Lieutenant. That's what I've come to realize. Like cells in a body. 'Cept we can't see the body. The way fish can't see the ocean. And so we envy each other. Hurt each other. Hate each other. How silly is that? A heart cell hating a lung cell." - Cassie from THE THREE

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer legitimately seems mentally unstable.  Am I right?

I decided to channel all my rage at right-wing liars into something creative, and this is the best I could do.

Rachel Maddow on extreme-right hysteria about Egypt.  Specifically, Glenn Beck.

It’s an A+.

Which is why the male Fox News audience remains uninformed and Rachel Maddow’s fans know EVERYTHING.

Well except Rachel Maddow IS attractive. Sheesh, don’t be a hater.

Yeah I’m pretty sure I’d like, do Rachel Maddow.

Feb. ‘03: Janeane Garofalo Destroys FNC’s Brian Kilmeade 

This is one of my favorite videos ever.  Everything she says turns out to be true.

Why is Glenn Beck Obsessively Targeting Frances Fox Piven? - Democracy NOW! (via ThisBoyTV)

Frances Fox Piven responds to Glenn Beck’s shenanigans.  I went right to Amazon and ordered one of her books.

Spanish actress Penélope Cruz recently revealed that she’s planning on giving birth to her baby boy in Los Angeles. Shortly after Fox News Latino called her unborn child an “anchor baby” in a story titled “Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem Are Having an Anchor Baby.”

Leave it to Fox News to insult Latinos in what is supposed to be their own turf. In October 2010, Fox News launched “Fox News Latino”, a site dedicated to attracting a Latino audience. “We’re aiming at Latinos whose first language is English, who inform themselves in English, who are deeply American, but share some of the cultural sensibilities of their parents or grandparents,” the site’s managing editor, Alberto Vourvoulias-Bush, told the Miami Herald.

A group of Latino conservatives, Somos Republicans (“We Are Republicans”) is urging Fox to remove the story and apologize for using the term “anchor baby.”

“Fox News Latino is being insensitive and their actions are reprehensible.The term ‘anchor baby’ is equivalent to other defamatory terms such as ‘wetback,’ ‘pickaninny’ and ‘tar baby.’ Media outlets should never use these demeaning terms in connection with precious babies, and it is unfortunate that we have to inform FOX News of this when they are typically viewed as conservative.”

Could I hate these people any more?

In the midst of global climate change talks last December, a top Fox News official sent an email questioning the “veracity of climate change data” and ordering the network’s journalists to “refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such theories are based upon data that critics have called into question.”

The directive, sent by Fox News Washington managing editor Bill Sammon, was issued less than 15 minutes after Fox correspondent Wendell Goler accurately reported on-air that the United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization announced that 2000-2009 was “on track to be the warmest [decade] on record.”

They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don’t want any other point of view. They don’t even feel guilty using tax dollars to spout their propaganda. They are basically Air America with government funding to keep them alive.
I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.

Well, there goes the work day.
