Fox News whines about BuzzFeed article on white folk: They should be thanking us

Published

on

Fox News personality Brian Kilmeade loudly complained on Friday about a recent Buzzfeed News story written by a woman of color.

The year end listicle, written by multicultural beauty writer Patrice Peck, was titled, “37 Things White People Need To Stop Ruining In 2018” and greatly offended some white conservatives.

“What are they getting at?” Kilmeade asked The Hill reporter Joe Concha.

“They are getting at white people are bad for this country, cause one of them was white people voted for President Trump at a 58 percent clip as opposed to Hillary Clinton at 37, he’s in office, therefore white people caused this,” Concha explained.

In addition to ruining America, the list also suggested that white people were ruining macaroni and cheese, plus also ruining chopped cheese. And even ruining the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.

“Your floor director was walking me out here and he said because of the story, he stopped following Buzzfeed, he’s not going to read it anymore,” Concha claimed.

Fox News has been complaining for over 24 hours about the BuzzFeed article.

“Instead of hating white people, maybe Buzzfeed should thank them. The unemployment rate remains at a 17-year low, and the economy grew last quarter at its fastest pace since 2015. Minorities, including Hispanics and Blacks, are seeing historic lows in unemployment across the country,” Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor argued.

A BuzzFeed spokesperson told Fox News that it is “important to distinguish entertainment content from News.”

Paul Joseph Watson, writing at the conspiracy site InfoWars, was also offended.

“To legitimise their racism, the left has created a form of mental gymnastics that allows them to convince themselves that promulgating racist stereotypes about white people is somehow acceptable. You’ve probably heard the argument a thousand times by now; It’s impossible to be racist against white people because they hold institutional power,” Watson argued. “This not only ignores the core unchanging definition of racism, it completely falls flat on its face when you account for the fact that the left is using its monopoly on the dominant cultural institutions (media, entertainment, Hollywood), to spew anti-white racism.”

Taylor Swift takes on former record label — and #IStandWithTaylor trends on Twitter

Published

on

Taylor Swift on Thursday publicly reignited her battle with the heads of her former label, saying it is threatening to bar her from going through with an upcoming performance and Netflix documentary over her plans to re-record her early albums.

Earlier this year the superstar began feuding with industry mogul Scooter Braun over his purchase of her former label for more than a decade, the Nashville-based Big Machine, which gave him a majority stake in the master recordings of her first six albums.

Swift said she would begin re-recording her early albums to create copies she owns herself, saying her contract allows her to begin re-doing albums one through five in November 2020, when she plans to be back in the studio doing just that.

on

Israel launched fresh strikes against Islamic Jihad targets in Gaza, the army said early Friday, weakening a ceasefire put in place after fighting this week killed 34 Palestinians in exchanges of fire.

But Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said in a WhatsApp message to reporters that new overnight strikes were under way on Islamic Jihad, the second most powerful Palestinian militant group in Gaza after Hamas.

"The IDF is currently striking Islamic Jihad terror targets in the Gaza Strip," it said.

CNN’s Don Lemon lists all the facts in Trump’s Ukraine scandal one must ignore to buy the GOP defense

Published

on

CNN's Don Lemon on Thursday listed all of the evidence one would have to ignore to believe the Republican defense of President Donald Trump.

The CNN anchor listed the "transcript of the president's infamous July 25th Ukraine call" as one piece of evidence that would have to be ignored.

He also listed the sworn testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. And the "bombshell" testimony from Ambassador Bill Taylor and the text messages between Taylor and Ambassador Gordon Sondland.

The necessity of there not just being an investigation of the Biden family, but an announcement of an investigation, is another inconvenient fact that would have to be ignored, he explained.
