Fox News brands Black Lives Matter as a ‘murder movement’ during discussion of slain Texas deputy

Published

on

During a discussion on the shooting death of Texas Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth, the Fox News graphics department immediately led off with a chyron graphic identifying the Black Lives Matter movement as a “murder movement,” reports Media Matters.

Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade welcomed frequent guest Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who often appears on the network to criticize black activists and the black community.

While no link has been established between the alleged gunman, Shannon Miles, and Black Lives Matter,  Clarke immediately attacked the group just a day after he accused President Obama of starting a “war on police.”

“Well let me start here, first of all the headline is ‘Black man shoots white defenseless police officer,’ ” Clarke said. “Because I get sick and tired of seeing it the other way around when an officer defends his life. They always point out that it’s a white officer shooting an unarmed black suspect.”

“It’s time now for good law-abiding Americans to rise up like they did around that Chevron station –an outpouring — but it can’t just be symbolic. We now have to counter this slime, this filth coming out of these cop-haters,” he said as clips of Black Lives Matters protesters rolled on screen.

Replying to Kilmeade, who suggested people believe attacks on the African American community by police is a pervasive problem, Clarke called it “a lie.”

“If there is anything that needs to be straightened out in this country, it is the subculture that has risen out of the underclass in the American  ghetto,” Clarke stated. “Fix the ghetto and you’ll see a lesser need for assertive police officers, or policing in these areas, and then you’ll see less confrontation. Stop trying to fix the police. Fix the ghetto.”

Donald Trump’s Secretary of State apparently thinks Spanish is spoken in Lebanon

Published

The president of United States is often criticized for getting his facts wrong, especially when it comes to understanding the world.

Trump made up the country of "Nambia" while not knowing that Bhutan and Nepal (which he pronounced "nipple") are real countries. He said the country of Belgium "is a beautiful city" and once told the prime minister of India that the country does not share a border with China (their shared border is 2,500 miles).

Jason Crow lays out the human cost of Trump’s Ukraine scheme — citing his military experience

Published

on

On the second day of the impeachment trial, Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO), a veteran and one of the House impeachment managers, clearly laid out the risk that President Donald Trump's Ukraine scheme posed to human life — and drew from his own experience in the military.

"I know something about counter-battery radar," said Crow. "In 2005 I was an Army Ranger serving in a special operations task force in Afghanistan. We were at a remote operating base along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. And frequently, the insurgents that we were fighting would launch rockets and missiles onto our small base. But luckily we were provided with counter-battery radar. The 20, 30, 40 seconds before those rockets and mortars rained down on us, an alarm would sound, and we would run out from our tents and jump into our concrete bunkers and wait for the attack to end. This is not a theoretical exercise, and the Ukrainians know it."

Schiff, who has a reputation as a somewhat-boring former prosecutor, impressed people watching the hearings to the point where "Adam Schiff Rocks" trended nationwide on Twitter.
