Yet Another Reason to Love Fox News...

^^Wow talk about carve outs! So the only immigrants that are not allowed in on work visas are basically high tech and medical workers. I’m guessing we probably have A LOT of H1B medical workers in the US unless that is a different type of visa.  
  Then the question to el presidumbo will be why would you want to be kicking out doctors, nurses, and medical staff during a pandemic?

 

And in another example of Trump voters shooting themselves in the foot, many medical workers in the US on visas are granted said visas in return for working in underserved, poor rural areas.   If you ever see an Indian restaurant out in the middle of the boonies, it probably means there is a small Indian-born doctor population around.

Quote

The unproven claim that an antimalarial drug can cure coronavirus - called a 'game-changer' and a 'gift from God' by Donald Trump - has been promoted by a crypto-currency lawyer who has made a string of bogus claims, DailyMail.com can reveal.

 

Gregory Rigano made a series of Fox News and conservative and Christian radio appearances to tout the idea that chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine  'cures' conronavirus.

 

Gregory Rigano posed as a Stanford advisor when he is not and Fox News let him run wild, promoting hydroxychloroquine as a cure for covid-19.

 

Tells you all you need to know about the journalistic "integrity" of Fox News that they've made no retractions, no apologies, and no public announcements of discipline for allowing such a hack to continue to appear on their programming pushing a false narrative.

So Tucker Carlson is a Swanson frozen food heir(!)  I didn't need another reason to dislike Tuck, but there's another one anyway.

You gotta love the irony of Fox & Friends continual downplaying of the seriousness of the Covid-19 virus.  Meanwhile, the virus killed their beloved giant white couch because the three hosts are now remotely broadcasting from different locations(!)

And the reason?

 

“What I need to know is how many people have passed away in New York, and what I need to know is: Who has the bodies?” Diamond asked. “I need for somebody that does investigative work to call the morgues. To call the funeral homes. We need to know, because I don't trust anything else that comes out of his mouth now... Something's not right here. Something is off here.”

 

She added: “Is this being deliberately spread? Look, I’m not being a conspiracy theorist, this is real, but I’m asking my own questions. What the hell is going on?"

 

Silk, meanwhile, baselessly asserted that the disease was “man-made” and “engineered,” wondering aloud if there was a “little deep-state action going on behind the scenes.” She also questioned whether the World Health Organization had a “switch” to “turn this virus on and off?”

 

These hoes are loyal, apparently.

Because they're black women and Fox could say "look, we're not racist".

It's probably making Trump very jealous right now.  You know when he can, he's going to play golf 30 straight days and not think twice about it!

I had reported this on the COVID-19 thread. There's a conspiracy theory propagated by right-wing pundits that alleges that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is behind a plot to immunize the globe for world domination. Tony Fauci and the WHO have also been linked to the ridiculous conspiracy.

What is interesting is, aside from the pundit who may mention something on the air, the Fox News organization makes no mention of it:  https://www.foxnews.com/search-results/search?q=bill gates.   Their viewers are ultimately getting this from the crazy echo-chamber social media circles they inhabit.   My older family members are all-in and I'm constantly pushing back and correcting them online.

^Little do they know that whoever wants to track them already can through their cell phone.  That is why among other reasons the conspiracy theory is so moronic.

Don't call them fascists though because that is uncivil discourse. The true fascists are powerless college kids that want people to be nice to others.

^ if people with guns are coming to their neighborhood, then it should be safer. 

 

 "Violent" people with guns are the opposite of safe. Law abiding citizens who own guns and would only ever use them on another human in self defense do make all of us safer.

 

People who travel to a city or neighborhood for the sole purpose of protesting/rioting, etc. are inherently angry and provocative, and thus likely inclined to violence.

So are you saying that protesting with guns is bad then? I'm glad we might finally agree on something.

A dad from a rural part of Ohio has traveled with his kids to Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton to take part in the protests.  He's *INHERENTLY* angry simply for traveling to participate in the protest?  WTF?

What about when y'all quieda was protesting Applebees being closed with the guns and banging on Statehouse windows. Why were they not considered inherently angry and thus tear gassed?

Surely none of these fine people traveled to the Ohio State House with assault rifles for the sole purpose of protesting.

This describes many police departments over the last week.  Additionally, most traveled to be in the major metro areas as well.

No - you selectively bolded there. I said "protesting, rioting, etc." If you're just protesting, being armed is not a great a concern, but we haven't seen many truly peaceful protests over the Floyd shooting (unlike the rather small scale and uneventful "lockdown" protests or whatever you want to call them - which remained entirely peaceful).

 

The current protests have, more often than not, ended with violent riots as night falls. I think last night was the first night in Cincinnati that we had a large daytime protest that didn't ultimately lead to nighttime violence, destruction, and general mayhem. Heavy thunderstorms are forecast for tonight so we might be spared again.

When you only in-take Fox News, these kind of absurd conclusions/observations become more prevalent.  It's entirely false that there haven't been "many truly peaceful protests."  Or that >50% ("more often than not") they end with violent riots.  Fox News is a helluva drug.

 

Anyway, there are protests in every state and virtually every large city across the country.  Quite the coordinated effort for all/most of them to be traveling.  Seems like some people just want to be in denial that they have neighbors and fellow citizens who are this outraged over racism and police brutality.  Much easier to blame "paid out of staters" than confront the truth.

You mentioned protesting, rioting, etc Those are each separate items. You should've left out protesting but you meant what you wrote. Take the L this time Ram and try harder at trolling next time.

We're getting pretty pedantic here - but I meant it as a multiple activities within a single event. Like how you might go to a cookout to eat, drink a cold one, relax, socialize etc. While each is a "separate item," you head to the cookout with the intention of doing them all. People who head out with the intention of protesting, rioting, looting, vandalizing, and going to jail so they can get social media credit are who I was referring to - they're inherently violent. if you go just to protest peacefully, that's a different story.

 

In short, Tucker made a great point and the nitpicking here doesn't negate that.
