March on FOX News Headquarters – Oct 23, 2010

EMERGENCY Call to Action: New Yorkers Say Stop the Bigots, Stop the Hate! Hold Fox News Accountable!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23RD … Rally at South Central Park Gate (59th and 8th Ave) 11AM March to Fox News Headquarters (6th Ave b/w 47th and 48th) 1PM http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=157690534262490

Over the past few months there has been an escalation of hate crimes and bigotry growing throughout our city and country. In particular Muslims, immigrants, and LGBT (lesbian, gay bisexual, and transgendered) people have come under attack and been vilified by hate-mongering politicians such as Paladino and encouraged by media outlets such as Fox News. We must stand together to say no to hatred and violence no matter what group of people is targeted.

Fox news must be held accountable for their hate. On the View, Bill O’Reilly said that “Muslims killed us on 9/11.” This type of racism encourages violent retaliation against all Muslims. When bigots like Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck and others from FOX NEWS attack gays, muslims, and immigrants each day on mainstream television, we should not be surprised when these attacks begin to take place.

In the past month, at least six LGBT people have committed suicide. A Muslim boy was beaten in his school while being called a “terrorist.” Hate crimes and harassment have increased against Latinos in schools, workplaces and on the streets. The progressive community needs to come together and take a stand against hatred in all its forms. If we do not stand up to this hate, it will continue to grow!

Join an ad-hoc committee in saying NO TO HATRED! NO TO BIGOTRY! AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL!

Spread the word far and wide!

Join a mass organizing conference call for the march. Individual activists as well as representatives from organizations are welcome.

Fox News Absent From Gay Rights Protest

Apparently Fox News has decided that it’s had enough protest coverage for a while. They provided coverage of every Tea Party event, no matter how small, but why didn’t they send a reporter, or camera crew to the LGBT event, National Equality March?

Surely they wouldn’t choose to not cover more than a few minutes of an event at the nation’s capital with 75,000 protesters, simply because it was for gay rights… Don’t you wonder where the Fox News producer was to hype up the crowd like at the 9/12 event? /sarcasm

CNN’s Rick Sanchez Slams Fox News Over Advertisement Lie

Here’s a great video of Rick Sanchez on CNN showing video evidence of Fox News’ lie in their newspaper advertisement that claims that other networks did not cover the 9/12 protest. There are several clips of CNN reporters at the event, discussing the event, and showing an angle from their tower camera that is nearly identical to the picture used in the advertisement. Perhaps the best part is when he shows Bill O’Reilly stating that CNN covered the event. Ooops.

Another Fox News & ‘Glen Beck’ Fan’s Protest Sign

The picture below, showing another protest sign is actually from a post at Democratic Underground showing the filth left behind after the filth left the 9/12 protest area(s). I’m not sure why “THANK YOU” and “VETERANS” are in quotes, y’know, those evil quote signs Glenn Beck uses… Are they not really thankful, or are they thanking fake veterans? And, notice how Glenn Beck is misspelled? Classic.

Take a look at the picture again & see if you can find something else wrong… Here’s a hint: it’s red, white and blue, has some stars and stripes and was mistreated by a so-called patriot. It’s probably a safe bet that the person carrying this has called someone a socialist and told them to get out of our country…

Fox News Falsehood About Pelosi Calling Protesters Nazis

Gregg Jarrett, an anchor on Fox News, falsely claimed that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi “sort of suggested that any American citizen who dared voice an objection in a protest is a Nazi, apparently based on one isolated incident.”

The truth is that she’s never called a protester a Nazi, compared a protesters to Nazis, or anything of the sort. What she really said, at more than “one isolated incident” is that some protesters turning out at Town Hall meetings were carrying signs with swastikas and Nazi-related symbols.

JARRETT: First of all, in the beginning, Pelosi sort of suggested that any American citizen who dared voice an objection in a protest is a Nazi, apparently based on one isolated incident. But now, she’s stepped it up and she’s labeling protesters “un-American.” Isn’t that destructive rather than constructive?

What Nancy Pelosi really said:

PELOSI: I think they’re Astroturf; you be the judge. They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care.

And it’s absolutely true.

And it’s not just signs – vandals have struck Congressman David Scott’s (D-GA) office and spray painted a large swastika over his name.

‘Deather’ Shows Up On Fox News

When you see some idiot making outlandish claims about the Obama Administration, there’s a good chance you’ll also see them on Fox News, a la Joe The Plumber. That’s how we got to know the “concerned father,” from a Michigan Town Hall meeting with John Dingell (D-MI), since he showed up to talk with with Megyn Kelly.

SOLA: The harm that is being done is being done by this administration and the Congress. They want to foist on us a health-care plan that they themselves will not take. I challenge Barack Obama, members of Congress — of both parties — if you believe so much in this plan, then you use it on your family before you put it on our families. What you are doing is sentencing our families to death.

We lose the right to life. Old people are discarded. Those who cannot fend for themselves are discarded. There is no liberty under your plan. And that’s the problem — the people have seen it, the people know it, you can’t hide it from the American people anymore.

If I’m a thug, fine. Don’t call my son a thug, and don’t call those old ladies and old men that are senior citizens like I am, thugs, and a mob. We are not. We are American citizens who want one thing: To be heard before you put us down.

Such has been the case at many Town Hall Meetings. So-called “concerned citizens” are disrupting important discussion and ignoring the information that could answer their questions. But they’d rather should “liar” than listen and have a rational discussion about the facts.

Hannity Wrong – Garafalo Not Tea Bagged At Gig

Late last month Sean Hannity, upset about comedian Janeane Garafalo’s comments about the Tea Parties, predicted that tea baggers  planned “to give her a piece of their mind as a result of these disgraceful comments” – those comments being that Tea Party attendees were racist. Maybe they were out of tea bags, but there weren’t any protestors at her recent gig in Somerville, MA.

“If there are any tea baggers here, welcome, and white power,” she said to laughs, before darting into a commentary on thongs, Spanx and a 22-hour flight to Australia.

Tea Baggers Turned Away

I find this extremely funny… It turns out that Tea Party planners are having to come up with a Plan B and ,apparently, Plan C. Dumping Tea in the Potomac River is illegal, so Plan B was to move the dumping site to Lafayette Square, but protesters were turned away for not having a permit. They also didn’t have a permit to protest in front of the Treasury building… Time for Plan D?

Fox News Promotes “Tea Party” Protests

Once again, stepping a big stinky pile of hypocrisy, Fox News breaks with its “fair and balanced” label and promotes so-called “tea party” protests. Upset with Obama’s decisions regarding the economy, Fox News has taken a clear stance against his administration, as if it wasn’t clear already… Also note the fact (see pic below) that Fox News has named the event after themselves, thus proving that they are not merely promoting the event, but also organizing it.
