A fantastic piece by Ministry Of Truth over a the Daily KOS :
‘I think you hate gays, Obama, black people, poor people, all of us, women, atheists and agnostics, Latinos, Muslims, Liberals, all of us, I think you hate every one who isn’t exactly like you, and I think you hate us more than you love your country’.
‘I meet you all the time. You hate Obama’.
‘You hate gay people’.
‘You hate black people, immigrants, Muslims, labor unions, women who want the right to make choices concerning their bodies, you hate em all’.
‘You hate being called racist’.
‘You hate being called a bigot’.
‘Maybe if you talked about creating jobs more than you talk about why you hate gay people we wouldn’t call you bigots’.
‘Maybe if you talked about black people without automatically assuming they are on food stamps while demanding their birth certificates we wouldn’t call you racist’.
‘You hate socialism and social justice’.
‘You hate regulations and taxes and spending and the Government. You hate’.
‘You like war’.
‘You like torture’.
‘You like Jesus’.
‘I don’t know how in the hell any of that is compatible, but no one ever accused you haters of being over-committed to ideological consistency’.
‘You like people who look like you or at least hate most of the things that you hate’.
‘You hate everything else’.
‘Now, I know you profess to love our country and the founding fathers (unless you are reminded that they believed in the separation of church and state), but I need to remind you that America is NOT what Fox News says it is’.
‘America is a melting pot, it always has been’.
‘We are a multi-cultural amalgamation of all kinds of people, and yet you still demonize everyone who is not a rich, white, heterosexual christian male or his submissive and obedient wife’.
‘You hate liberals, moderates, hell, anyone who disagrees with Conservative dogma as espoused by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. You hate em’.
‘You tried to hold the American economy hostage to force America into default on its’ debts, debts that YOU rang up under Bush, so you could blame it on Obama and it failed’.
‘You’ve used the filibuster more than any other Congress ever, going so far as to vote against providing health care access to 9/11 first responders’.
‘You remember 9/11, don’t you, it’s that thing you used to lie us into a war in Iraq, and then when Obama killed Bin Laden and ended the war in Iraq you told people that he hates America and wants the troops to fail’.
‘You monsters. You hate Obama with a passion, despite the fact that he is a tax cutting, deficit reducing war President who undermines civil rights and delivers corporate friendly watered down reforms that benefit special interests just like a Republican’.
‘You call him a Kenyan’.
‘You call him a socialist’.
‘You dance with your hatred singing it proudly in the rain like it was a 1950’s musical’.
‘Frankly, you disgust me. Your hatred nauseates me. Your bigotry offends me. Your racism revolts me’.
‘Dear haters, I am openly questioning your patriotism’.
‘You love spending on faith based initiatives and abstinence based sex education (George Carlin would have loved that one)’,
‘You love spending on subsidies for profitable oil corporations’,
‘You spend like drunken sailors when you are in the White House’,
‘But if it is a Democrat then suddenly you cheer when America doesn’t get the Olympics because it might make the black President look bad’.
‘But oooh you love your country, you say, and you want it back’.
‘Well listen here skippy, it isn’t your country, you don’t own it, it is our country, and America is NOT the religiously extremist Foxbots who hate science, elitist professors and having a vibrant and meaningful sex life with someone we love if Rick Santorum doesn’t approve of it’.
‘Rick Santorum isn’t running for America’s fucking high school dance chaperone, he should probably just shut the hell up about sex, but he can’t because he has nothing else to run on’.
‘Dear haters, you are the cruel, heartless misinformed assholes who would sell America out to Haliburton in a heartbeat’.
‘You would rather pay ZERO taxes than you would see a newly born baby get access to quality health care’.
‘You cheer when we discuss denying health care to young people with preventable diseases’.
‘And you boo when we discuss the First Ladies plan to cut back on childhood obesity’.
‘You are a cross to carry and a flag to wrap yourself in away from being the people who Sinclair Lewis warned us about, but I guarantee that if Fox News told you to dress that way you would, because you are the same blind, ignorant and closed minded dunces who drove this country into a civil war years ago because you are bound to the notion that some men are more equal than others’.
‘If corporations are people, they are neither American patriots nor capable of love. Just like you’.
‘You should be ashamed’.
‘I know that you are just doing this to motivate your misinformed hate cult base because if they actually knew that your ideas will make them poorer than they are now, they would never vote for you’.
‘You are doing your best to impoverish your countrymen so rich people can get bigger tax breaks and you can keep on delivering corporate welfare to the special interests who have bribed you’.
‘And I am disgusted by the way you gleefully parade your hatred with aplomb’.
‘I don’t think you do love America’.
‘At least, not as much as you hate everyone in America who isn’t exactly like you’.
‘North Carolina and a handful of other Southern U.S. states saw the biggest increases in the number of people living in what are known as “poverty areas” between 2000 and 2010, according to a new Census Bureau report’.
‘Poverty areas are places where more than 20 percent of the people live below the federal poverty line, which varies by family size’.
‘For a family of four, the poverty line in most states is an annual income of $23,850’.
‘Note that Southern states were five of the six biggest gainers’.
‘This should not be much of a shock, as Southern states consistently lag the rest of the country in good things like wages, economic mobility and access to health care, while leading it in bad things like poverty, obesity and general unhappiness’.
‘Another thing Southern states have in common is Republican political leaders that have spent the past decade shrinking the social safety net’.

‘On Meet The Press, Homeland Security Jeh Johnson repeatedly corrected David Gregory’s misinformation based on Republican talking points about the immigration crisis unfolding on the Southern border’.
DAVID GREGORY: “You heard the mayor of Murrieta, “Why now? Why so many?” Is part of the answer that the administration, through some of its executive actions, have said, in effect, “Look, if you come, we’re going to let you in?”
SECRETARY JEH JOHNSON: “First of all, David, the reason we’re seeing this influx has to do primarily with the conditions in the three Central American countries that they’re leaving from, the push factor”.
DAVID GREGORY: “Could it be 90,000 this year”?
SECRETARY JEH JOHNSON: “Honduras is in a really bad place right now. El Salvador, Guatemala. The push factor is what is driving this recent influx. In addition, we know that the smuggling organizations, the criminal smuggling organizations, are putting out a lot of disinformation about supposed ‘free passes’ into this country that are going to expire at the end of May, at the end of June. “Just give us your money and we’ll get you into the country by the end of the month.” It’s like a used car salesman saying that the sale’s going to expire at the end of the week”.
DAVID GREGORY: “But that’s not all misinformation, Mr. Secretary. There is deferred action on some children, passed in 2012, that will allow some children of illegal immigrants to stay”.
SECRETARY JEH JOHNSON: “Well, that’s the point we keep stressing. The deferred action program is for kids who came to this country seven years ago. It’s not for anyone who comes to this country today, tomorrow or yesterday. And the legislation that the Senate passed, which provides for an earned path to citizenship, is for those who were in this country in 2011. It’s not for those that are coming here today”.
‘Gregory’s first question was straight out of the Republican talking points. Instead of asking if the president’s executive actions caused this influx, he could have asked what in the administration’s view is responsible for the increase’?
‘Gregory’s question was based on partisan talking points that lack factual basis’.
‘Irresponsible journalists like David Gregory only make the crisis worse when they try to exploit the partisan divide for ratings’.
‘It is shameful that a guest had to correct the misinformation that the moderator of Meet The Press based his questions on’.
‘David Gregory chose to play political games instead of informing his viewers’.

A political party with a 24 hour a day media machine.
Yeah…..That’s ‘Fair and Balanced’.
‘Charles and David Koch, founders of Americans for Prosperity (AFP) and the Americans for Prosperity Foundation (AFPF), have called on at least 15 Fox News hosts and contributors to publicly promote upcoming AFP and AFPF events, Media Matters said’.
‘These hosts include Tucker Carlson, Mike Huckabee, Laura Ingraham, Guy Benson, Dana Perino and Andrew Napolitano’.
‘Moreover, many of these hosts have also loudly backed the Koch brothers on Fox News shows, Media Matters noted’.
‘Just weeks before Tucker Carlson was set to be the lead speaker at an AFPF in May, for instance, he criticized opponents of the Koch brothers during an edition of “Special Report.”
‘Hosts of “Fox & Friends” and “The Five” have also come to the brothers’ aid and used their shows to promote AFP and AFPF material’.

‘Gov. Rick Perry tried to push his claim that the humanitarian crisis involving an influx of Central American children on the border was an Obama conspiracy, but ABC’s This Week called him out on it and ended the interview when Perry added an imaginary hurricane’.
‘RADDATZ: — “but Governor, this — this is about a law. This isn’t necessarily about Border Patrol. This is about a law. You heard in Jim Avila’s piece, they have to let these people into the country when they’re from non-contiguous nations, when they’re from Central America or South America”.
“Should that law be changed”?
PERRY: “The rule of law is that “The Constitution” requires the United States to secure the border. And we’re not doing that. We haven’t done it for years. And we are paying a huge price”.
“When you have catch and release policies that send…”
RADDATZ: “But — but, Governor, please…”
PERRY: — “a message to people…”
RADDATZ: — “go back to the law…”
PERRY: — “in Central America…”
RADDATZ: — “the 2008 law that was signed into law by George Bush.
Isn’t this is a backlog in the courts”?
“Doesn’t that have to be addressed first”?
PERRY: “What has to be addressed is the security of the border. You know that. I know that. The president of the United States knows that. I don’t believe he particularly cares whether or not the border of the United States is — is secure”.
“And that’s the reason there’s been this lack of effort, this lack of focus, this lack of resources…”
RADDATZ: “He’s telling people not to come”.
PERRY: — “and…”
RADDATZ: “He’s telling them in ads not to come into the United States, not to leave their homes”.
PERRY: “About — about five years too late would be my response to that. The president has sent powerful messages time after time…”
RADDATZ: “You know, Governor…”
PERRY: — “by his policies, by nuances, that it is OK to come to the United States and you can come across and you’ll be accepted in open arms. That is the real issue”.
RADDATZ: “But, Governor, you’ve made — I — I want to go back to an interview you did on Fox News. You re— you recently made some pretty serious allegations against the federal government”.
RADDATZ: “Governor, do you re”
RADDATZ: “Governor, do you really believe there’s some sort of conspiracy to get people into the United States by the federal government, by the Obama administration”?
PERRY: “When I have — when I have written a letter that is dated May of 2012, and I have yet to have a response from this administration, I will tell you they either are inept or don’t care, and that is my position”.
“We have been bringing to the attention of President Obama and his administration since 2010, he received a letter from me on the tarmac. He sends — I have to believe that when you do not respond in any way, that you are either inept, or you have some ulterior motive of which you are functioning from”.
“So the issue is, this president understands now that we have a huge problem on our southern border. We have to deal with it. And I don’t think you’re going to be able to address it until you put the resources there, and that’s boots on the ground. We’re asking for the FAA to allow for drones to be used”.
“Unless we secure our southern border, this is going to continue to be a massive amount of individuals that are coming to the United States. And, frankly, we don’t have a place to house them as it is. And if we have a major event, a hurricane that comes in to the Gulf Coast, I don’t have a place to be housing people who are displaced”.
RADDATZ: “OK, governor, I’m going to have to stop you there”.

Where else but FOX (cough) ‘news’…..
BREAM: “OK. It’s no secret that you and the ranking member, Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings, are not the best of friends. You’ve had some differences”.
ISSA: “Just a bit”.
BREAM: “He says that you’ve released things selectively and that you’ve — that’s given a false impression at times. Seemed like he took a swipe at the committee this week as well. I want to read something he was quoted in “USA Today” saying this’.
Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings -“Our committee and all committees should use taxpayer dollars to help better the everyday lives of our constituents, not inflate the press operations to basically run political campaigns out of government buildings.” Your response”?
ISSA: “Well, he should tell that to the president who has the large political campaign and Air Force one to do it”.
