Libertarian blogger Willis Hart claims that he watches Fox Nooz (for the hotties, the misogynist sez). So, is it is possible that he missed it when various Fox Noozers discussed the racially motivated terrorist attack at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston SC on 6/17/2015?
|Willis Hart: On Leftists Like The Young Turks Charging that Conservatives Are Attempting to Deny that that Piece of Shit Murderer Down in South Carolina Was Motivated by Racial Hatred... Where do they come up with this shit? (7/1/2015 AT 6:05pm).|
Where does Willis come up this shit? I have not watched the Young Turks since Al Gore cashed out and sold Current, but I have certainly heard that Fox Nooz (at least initially) denied that the attack was motivated by racial hatred.
|When news broke that a young white man had gunned down nine people in a historically black church in Charleston... most people quickly seemed to infer that racial animus was a likely motivation for the attack... Not the cast of Fox & Friends. This morning the show brought on E.W. Jackson, a black pastor... known for referring to... President Obama as a "radical anti-American". Without mentioning the possibility that the killings were racially motivated, Jackson explained that he was worried about the fact that the attack happened at a church.|
[Jackson said] "...I'm telling you, I'm deeply concerned that this gunman chose to go into a church, because there does seem to be a rising hostility against Christians across this country because of our biblical views. I just think it's something that we have to be aware of and not create an atmosphere in which people take out their violent intentions against Christians". From there, Jackson urged "pastors and men in these churches to prepare to defend themselves" by arming up with guns. (How Fox News Tried to Spin the Charleston Shooting as an Attack on Christianity This Morning by Jordan Weissmann. Slate 6/18/2015).
Is Willis denying reality here because this story does not fit with his narrative that, while both Fox and MSNBC are biased, "It isn't even a contest at this point, folks. MSNBC is significantly worse"?
No, Willis... suggesting a obviously racially motivated shooting was actually an attack on Christianity? That is "significantly worse", you liar. And, what a stooopid thing to lie about, as anyone who pays attention to the news has likely heard about this bullshit from Fox Nooz.
This guy is so much of a stooge that it makes my skin crawl. For instance, Willis is still going on about how this shooting is an "anecdote" and absolutely does not prove that America still has a very real problem with racism.
|Five predominantly black Southern churches burn within a week; arson suspected in at least three. ... Since the shooting, lawmakers and civil rights leaders have been focused on the backlash as people have been calling for the country to stop waving the Confederate flag. Now authorities are looking into the recent church fires at predominantly black churches, which the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights group that tracks hate crimes, reports "may not be a coincidence". (6/20/2015 Washington Post article by Lindsey Bever).|
I do not believe for one second these church fires are a coincidence. I believe that those responsible for these fires were almost certainly motivated specifically by the Dylann Roof church shooting - or the hubbub concerning taking down the Confederate flag. Even if a coincidence, arson at a church points very clearly to racist hate as a motivation. Which utterly destroys Willis' claim that "partisan schmucks [have] taken this one isolated incident and attempted to extrapolate from it the conclusion that America is still a racist country".
Partisan schmuck? F*ck you Willis! That is (almost) exactly what I have concluded, as this is what the facts show to be the case. Although I would not say we are a "racist country". I would only say that our country still has a very real problem with racism. The "racist country" framing by Willis is another of the strawmen he is famous for. Nobody has used this framing, you strawman-loving racist schmuck.
Yeah, you got that right... Willis' denial of this story (Fox Nooz spinning the church shooting as an attack on Christianity) plus his denial of our nation's continuing problem with racism is another example of Willis Hart's problem with racism (in my strong opinion).
By the way, in regards to the Hartster's LOVE of strawmen... get this: Willis thinks he's refuting a claim (from the Left?) that there are "vast armies of white people going around slaughtering black folks".
Even if you do not agree that Willis' ignorance of the Fox Nooz story plus his strawman framing points to racism, you absolutely have to agree that it points to him being a total dumbshit. If not, then I think you might be a dumbshit yourself.
