Brit Hume Launches A Series Of Racial Attacks On Obama Over Black Lives Matter Fox News contributor Brit Hume, not normally a flame thrower, is on some kind of racial crusade against President Obama accusing President Obama of being overly partial to African American concerns.
I'm not the first one to point out that the streets of Chicago are a killing field in some areas. Black on black violence, gun violence, mostly, gang violence. The death count out there is tragically high. The president almost never says anything about that. Instead, he is aroused by these incidents where blacks are killed by white police officers. And at each turn, when one of these episodes occurs, he does not fail to mention the what he considers the persistent racism in this country. It feeds the idea upon which the whole Black Lives movement is based that we're in an epidemic of white police violence against black victims, often unarmed, many times innocent, shot down in cold burberry outlet online shop blood, and there's enough video evidence from individual cases to provide some momentum and some impetus for that idea. But if you drill down into the statistics and you look at the number of whites, Hispanics who are killed, versus the number of blacks who are killed, in the context of crime situations, it turns out that there's nothing disproportionate about the number of blacks who are killed by police, and so I and I think that, though, that that myth, that there's this epidemic of white police violence against blacks, has taken hold in this country. The president has, to some extent, fostered it, and when you see something like what happened in Dallas, I don't draw direct connection between that guy who shot all those people and President Obama. But I think it would be a go a long way, if he were to use his credibility and his enormous megaphone as president to try to put some of these myths to rest. Notice how Hume cloaked his attack on Obama as truth telling about black deaths, as if African American welfare was his real concern? Someone at Fox News liked Hume's attack so much, he repeated it that evening on Special Report. Only this time, it was more "Obama too black" and less pretense about concern for African Americans. HUME: In Dallas, Tuesday, President Obama will be trying to calm racial tensions that his own behavior has done much to burberry head office aggravate. From his denunciation of the Cambridge, Massachusetts, police as acting, quote, stupidly in the arrest of black Harvard law professor Henry Lewis Gates they didn't, to his assertion that the motives of the Dallas cop killer are unclear, they aren't. The president has consistently chosen to see things through the eyes of an aggrieved black activist rather than of a president of all the people. He has not failed to speak out whenever a black is killed by a white police officer, but has said next to nothing about the continuing slaughter of blacks by other blacks in the streets of Chicago, Baltimore, and other cities. He has made his sympathy for the Black Lives Matter movement obvious, and never mind that the whole premise of the movement seems to be fallacious. Kelly, who has long openly admired Hume to the point that there were rumors of an affair, later rather persuasively denied also admired his latest sortie into race baiting. She hosted him on The Kelly File last night so burberry scarf sale usa that Fox's prime time viewers could also appreciate him. This meme, that Obama is "too black" to be fully American, is a common refrain on Fox and one that Kelly has also embraced. Watch this shamefulness below, via Media Matters, from July 11 and 13. Transcripts, lightly edited, are also via Media Matters. If Fox were to discuss these killings instead of rambling generically about the killings of black men, they would have to show the videos of these specific men being killed, show their families, and report on the investigations news!!! Fox hates real news, Fox hides from the truth with distraction and distortion. This is a very ugly business they are engaging in at a time when people really want to come together so we can stop seeing both the police and innocent men being killed. Expect a lot more of this ugliness as coming together in compromise or agreement is the last thing Fox would ever want for our country or their ratings. I don believe it an accident that we hearing this from Hume at the same time that Bill O is making shameful comments about President Obama being supposedly too cozy with Muslim countries. It not an accident that this is at the same time that Sean Hannity is now regularly shouting with open anger on his show about how much he hates this president. It clear that Hume is simply following the same debunked talking points as everyone else, only trying to give them an avuncular statesman spin. The problem with that approach here is that Hume doesn have the experience or gravitas of an elder statesman, since most of his career has been spent repeating Fox News talking points and lines of the day. I believe there is a two pronged reason for the constant venom coming from Fox News at President Obama these days. The first is their very real panic now over the trainwreck of having Donald Trump as the GOP candidate something that has already tanked their convention and has the potential to cause significant losses for them in November. In what I can only describe as impotent rage, they are flailing away and stomping on the floor in a manner that resembles a child throwing a huge tantrum. The second prong has to do with the hatred they had for this president since he became a realistic candidate for the office. From the moment that President Obama was elected, Fox News happily followed the Rush Limbaugh/Newt Gingrich/Karl Rove line of hope he FAILS! Since that didn happen, and since President Obama had the temerity to be re elected in spite of all their attacks over the first 4 years, now they attempting to trash him as he completes his second term. This time, it more about writing a false first chapter in the history books about the Obama presidency. The intent is to plant an impression in right wing viewers that the last eight years, as O angrily put it, saw absolutely no progress or accomplishments of any kind, or as Hannity would tell you, saw only disaster and apocalypse for the country and the world. The fact that these statements are nonsensical does not matter to Roger Ailes. He just wants to put them on the record and hope that this manufacturing and repetition of on the ground will let the right wing establish this as the history of our times. It something they already had some success with regarding Hillary Clinton. For 25 years, she been smeared by the right wing, sometimes on a daily basis. She been accused of nearly every crime we can conceive, and when she dismissed or disproved those smears, she been accused of lying about it. Is it any wonder that the right wing now crows about how they can point to polls showing that people distrust her (They never mention that most of the people responding yes to that question are in the right wing/GOP group that hated her from the beginning.) The real success for Fox News here has been with more gullible voters, and sadly with many Sanders supporters who don realize they repeating right wing propaganda burberry brit sale from the 90s. To Fox News, this is a huge win, and one they like to repeat with the legacy of President Obama. How boring and lazy has Fox News grown endlessly repeating the debunked blacks kill blacks so lets not worry about cops killing blacks talking point? Then a pro NRA plug we shouldn exploit the tragedy because of guns. Unless we can exploit tragedy to fear monger people should buy more guns and carry them everywhere.
Which leads to a new wrinkle in Fox News and Republicans sucking a certain NRA appendage. Cleveland where the Republican convention is being held is an open carry state. So why the resistance no AR 15s [and any other gun] on the convention floor and at all Trump rallies.
