Bill O’Reilly: “I don’t want to go on a lynching party against Michelle Obama, UNLESS…”

first_lady_michelle_obamaMany things should be left in the past.

However, poisonous things which occur repeatedly under the guise of normality should not be left to hide quietly in the dustbins of history.

Especially when that ‘normality’ was the accepted racism of our country’s recent past.

These things should never, ever be forgotten lest they continue to play out in future generations unable to recognize racist slurs because, by ignoring them, such slurs are permitted to weave themselves into the fabric of normalcy.

Racist remarks disguised as fair and accurate” good-guy news reporting, gets my Smackdown this week…

Lynching-of-black-man                                          Shame on Fox News, once AGAIN.

Bill O’Reilly on Occupy Wall Street Protestors: “They’re Jobless Because They Don’t Want to Work!”

This week’s Smackdown goes to Fox News ‘anchor’ Bill O’Reilly for his obtuse assessment of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement.

Clipgate: Fox News Slams Obama’s Choice of Office Supplies

president-obama-holding-jobs-act-packet

Never one to miss an opportunity to smear “fair and accurate” reporting across the face of President Obama, Fox News strikes again.

 

 

In the midst of all manner of headline-making national news, and international events unfolding around the globe, Fox News hones in on its idea of breaking news.

No, not the President’s unveiling of the Jobs Act, nor important details about the bill.

Instead, Fox News reports extensively on the clip used to hold the Jobs Act packet together.

That’s right.

Clipgate.

Sylver’s Saturday Smackdown

“Knock off Obama”

This Smackdown goes to Liz Trotta, who should trot straight to ‘Hell‘ without passing ‘Go‘ for this outrageous, racist “joke.”

Fox News should roast as well, for merely laughing along with her!

Apparently, powerful Trotta is permitted to exercise her freedom of speech about killing the president, but those less powerful are not. A high school girl received a visit from the Secret Service for a cartoon she posted on her blog about killing then-president Bush.

Amanda Knox: Convicted of Cultural Difference?

What if American exchange student Amanda Knox wasn’t really convicted of murder?

What if she was sentenced to 26 years in an Italian jail for the crime of being different?

That’s what author Nina Burleigh investigates in her book “The Fatal Gift of Beauty.”

Says Burleigh, in a Fox News interview, “It was a misunderstanding between Italian police and this young woman who…was kind of a hippie. They didn’t really know what to make of her. She was so different from how young Italian women are supposed to behave…”
