disgusting. Fox news and Lets go Brandon.....

 
despicable deplorables on fox news

There is a tweet here that shows 3 women on FOX, and one says she's going as Brandon for Halloween.  The other 2 women laugh and say "Let's go Brandon!"

First, why do they hate women?  And the one going as Brandon is a black woman.  Why do they particularly hate black women?

Would anyone like to go remind them of Robert Dinero hosting some glitzy thing that I haven't watched, where he was supposed to simply introduce someone and instead he got on stage and said "I just want to say one thing.  **** TRUMP!"

To which he was rewarded with a standing ovation.  Please, someone go remind them.  That is just one of several things that were done on national stages.  The link for Dinero is provided below.

From another post at this forum:


--- Quote ---Recently the Washington Post published a news article, "Biden's critics hurl increasingly vulgar taunts," exploring what the paper says is a growing phenomenon of people around the country directing raw insults at the president. As an example, the paper pointed to President Joe Biden's recent visit to his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, where a woman stood on the street with a sign that said, "F--- Joe Biden." At other times, Biden detractors say simply, "FJB," which stands for you know what.

The Post also noted the "Let's go Brandon" phenomenon. If anyone doesn't know what that is, it stemmed from an NBC sportscast of an October race at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama in which a crowd chanted, "F--- Joe Biden." The chants were clearly audible while NBC was interviewing NASCAR driver Brandon Brown. Trying to smooth things over and make it appear to viewers that all was well, the reporter said, "You can hear the chants from the crowd, 'Let's go Brandon!'" So then, as fast as things happen on the internet, people began saying, "Let's go Brandon" as a snarky — and clean — way to say, "F--- Joe Biden."

All this derision directed toward the president has disturbed some in the media. Biden "is increasingly becoming an object of hatred to many Trump supporters," the Washington Post reported. Conceding that "boos, jeers and insults are nothing new for politicians," the paper nevertheless declared that "The current eruption of anti-Biden signs and changes, however, is on another level, far more vulgar and widespread."

To which anyone who was awake from 2016 to 2020 might ask: What???

In case you have forgotten, the level of hostility directed at President Donald Trump — and the prominence of those attacking the president — far exceeded anything seen so far in the Biden administration. To illustrate the point, just focus specifically on the phrase, "F--- Trump."

In June 2018, the actor Robert De Niro appeared at the Tony Awards ceremony in New York. His role was to introduce a performance by Bruce Springsteen, but he started with this: "I'm gonna say one thing. F--- Trump." The audience gave De Niro a standing ovation. As they cheered, De Niro said, "It's no longer down with Trump. It's f--- Trump." Now, this was not some woman standing on a street corner in Scranton, Pennsylvania. It was the most celebrated and honored actor of his generation, appearing before the entertainment elite in a nationally televised event, saying, with great pride, "F--- Trump."

In June 2020, a Los Angeles art gallery organized a "hybrid virtual exhibition and protest where all of the works read 'F--- Trump,'" according to Los Angeles magazine. The article went on to say that, "Also integral to the campaign is the logo, with a middle finger thrust up in the center of the 'u' in Trump."

In August 2017, the rapper Eminem appeared at a music festival in England. During his set, he launched into an anti-Trump diatribe. "The audience cheered and began chanting 'F--- Donald Trump' unprompted," Billboard reported, "while Eminem then said he had a request of the audience: 'When I say 'F---,' you say 'Trump'!"

These are just three examples of a very widespread phenomenon. Anyone paying any attention during that time will remember them. But now, the Washington Post says, there is a new phenomenon, one that is "on another level, far more vulgar and widespread" than the insults directed at Trump.

Does anyone really believe that? It might be more accurate to say that "F--- Trump" prepared the way for the age of "FJB." But that is not entirely true — while some are indeed saying, "F--- Joe Biden," it's worth recognizing that the "Let's go Brandon" phenomenon is all about suggestion rather than explicitness, about creating a new euphemism that avoids the F-word altogether. Surely that's worth something.

As the Post suggested, insulting the president has a long history. But it's fair to say that the "F--- Trump" years were a pretty robust time for presidential insults. In some circles, the events of that period served to normalize saying f--- the president. So why should anyone be surprised by what is happening now?

IFFFFFF that's true, this DUmmy doesn't have a very good memory. Also, a lot of the crap that was shown on MSNBC and CNN wasn't just directed at Trump, but also at his supporters. What a low class heap of trash the DUmp is.

SVPete:
What's with so many DUmmies watching in one day, more of Fox News content than I have in the entire time Fox News has existed?
