Fox & Friends: How Is Godless Obama Hating Our Lord Jesus Today?

  knobs

Fox & Friends would like to have a word with President Barack Hussein Obama, about how he (probably) killed Christ (besides how he also did 9/11):

Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson claimed that Obama has “called for a moment of silence, but has not called for the word God. So some people are asking, why is God being left out again?” Later, her colleague Steve Doocy said: “On this most somber of days, get this. Does the President of the United States call on people to pray for those lives lost? No.”

But, hmmmm … is it true? (Spoiler: It is not true.)

Take it away, Godless heathens at Media Matters!

Fox was referring to a presidential proclamation declaring September 11, 2012, to be Patriots Day. [...]

Obama called on “God’s grace” and asked people to pray for the lives lost in a separate official proclamation declaring the days between September 7 and September 9 as national days of prayer and remembrance in commemoration of the September 11 terrorist attacks:

Here is some Presidential Proclamation at ya:

On September 11, 2001, in our hour of grief, a Nation came together. No matter where we came from, what God we prayed to, or what race or ethnicity we were, we were united as one American family. This weekend, as we honor the memory of those we have lost, let us summon that spirit once more. Let us renew our sense of common purpose. And let us reaffirm the bond we share as a people: that out of many, we are one.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 7 through Sunday, September 9, 2012, as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance. I ask that the people of the United States honor and remember the victims of September 11, 2001, and their loved ones through prayer, contemplation, memorial services, the visiting of memorials, the ringing of bells, evening candlelight remembrance vigils, and other appropriate ceremonies and activities. I invite people around the world to participate in this commemoration.

They do have a point though: Barack Obama said “God” but he never said “Jesus,” because Barack Obama is the major general of the War on Christmas.

Burn him.

      They think if they mention God often enough, the Big Being in the Great Beyond will begin paying attention to them, which, of course, has not happened. What is this God thingy anyway?

      1. PsycWench

        I got the impression they mention God the same reason that one mention the wrath of the other parent to a teenage child: you actually don't think the parent will do anything but it gives you something to frighten the child with.

      1. Veritas78

        He doesn't seem to step up when it counts, like when a meteor destroys 3/4 of his most-prized species. To say nothing of the occasional genocide or your run-of-the-mill natural disasters and diseases.

    2. chicken_thief

      And they've only been praying for 11 yrs now – wtf did those dead people do that requires 11 yrs of prayer?!!

    3. finallyhappy

      People ask me to pray for them or family or friends- because I do attend services regularly(sometimes more than once a week) but at a synagogue so we know I helped Barack Obama kill Jesus.

      1. FakaktaSouth

        Oh you should be so glad I didn't know you did that when we met, I have been DYING to get to someone that could talk to the mean and smite-y god for so long. There's a dearth of good Jewish people round my way.

        1. finallyhappy

          I will be reading "Pour out thy Wrath Upon the Nations" soon but I will say Fox news instead of Nations.

          1. FakaktaSouth

            God said to Abraham, "kill me a son," Abe said "man, you must be putting me on" God said, "no," Abe said, "what?" God said "you can do what you want, Abe, but the next time you see me coming you better run"

            No better words were ever spoken by a good Jew/Christian/Jew/Christian ever.

      If God paid attention to them there would be a lot of airtime suddenly available, though you might need a new studio

    1. kittensdontlie

      The real problem with the President's phrase, " No matter…what God we prayed to", is not enough God—it is too many Gods, for how was he to leave out his favorite god and Mitten's nemesis, Bacchus?!

    1. GunToting[Redacted]

      On a wingnut FB post, I saw the idiots angrily posting that "Michelle Obama did NOT bow to QEII! She is uppity and will not show respect to a foreign leader." Fuck these morons.

  1. Ruhe

    Gretchen I understand. But how does Steve Doocy get away with being so stupid while at the same time being totally unattractive? Sometimes the social economy of Fox world just confuses me.

    1. GunToting[Redacted]

      He has a penis. See also: Hannity, O'Reilly, and the toad they traded to the Fox Business Channel.

    Fox & Friends: How Is Godless Obama Hating Our Lord Jesus Today?

    i have no idea but i hope it's particularly witty and involves cabbage and a hedgehog.

    1. finallyhappy

      The hedgehog, according to the Bund. 19.28, is created in opposition to the ant that carries off grain, as it says that the hedgehog, every time that it voids urine into an ant's nest, will destroy a thousand ants, (Bund. 19.28; cf. Saddar 57).

    1. ph7

      Just think – after November 6, Barack can answer questions like this by saying "Because God is bullshit" He won't, but he could if he had the balls. Maybe one day we'll have a President who will…

      1. Designer_Rants

        I'm with ya. When you have the same (or similar) imaginary friend that most other people do, it's all smiles and knowing nods. When you don't have an imaginary friend, everyone gets pissed.

    2. Tequila Mockingbird

      You are wrong, my friend. It is fact that Jesus was born 400 years ago in a shitty barn behind Jethro’s Dogfight & Chum Shack in Arkansatucky, Missibama. His unwed virgin teen mom said, “It was God what done gave me the babytimes!” Then everyone rewrote all the schoolbooks to reflect the fact that our nation’s greatest president was in fact Ayn Rand, and it is told in churches from sea to shining sea every Santa Day. If you disagree with this highly-edited and re-re-re-re-re-re-written version of ancient Mesopotamian myth, then you are a communiss. Now return to your stockpiles of ammo and your “Mission Accomplished” banners and the Thomas Kincaid (RIP) prints that comprise your holy spank bank. And Happy 9/11 Day, also!

      1. chicken_thief

        That Paul Ryan is so handsome is proof positive that Jeebus was a 'Murkin and loves this country better than all the others. See also too His co-authoring of our Constitushunz. USA!!!!! USA!!!! USA!!!!

      2. sewollef

        TM, I was with you all the way, right up until you said, "Mesopotamian".

        You could've just said "brown" and be done with it, but no, you had to be all hi-falutin' with your European-sounding smarts.

        You're probably a messican too, also.

    3. CleverSobriquet

      There you go with your monotheistic prejudices again! THEY are pissed. Of course they are always. They're gods, that's what they do.

    1. finallyhappy

      Baruch Obamawitz is coming to shul- the whole Muslin thing and his "official" name is just to keep him under the radar. Did he have the first White House Seder?? Does Michele have a cousin who is a rabbi(yes- if you don't know)?

  3. Boojum

    From now on, all Presidential Proclamations shall begin:

    "In the name of God, Jesus, Yahweh, but definitely not Allah and we aren't sure about that Yahweh character, I do hereby proclaim…."

      1. BoatOfVelociraptors

        Ever notice how 1984 plays off of the trinity? How many gods are there? 1. 2? 3? Yes as many as you want pontiff!

        It goes up to 4 and 5.
        The needle must have risen again, but he did not look at it. The heavy, stern face and the four fingers filled his vision. The fingers stood up before his eyes like pillars, enormous, blurry, and seeming to vibrate, but unmistakably four.

        " How many fingers, Winston ? "

        " Four ! Stop it, stop it ! How can you go on ? Four ! Four ! "

        " How many fingers, Winston ? "

        " Five ! Five ! Five ! "

        " No, Winston, that is no use. You are lying. You still think there are four. How many fingers, please ? "

        " Four ! five ! Four ! Anything you like. Only stop it, stop the pain ! "

    So if, as they say, we are created in God's image, does that mean God is a cross-eyed imbecile who goes on TV and says idiotic things?
    Who knew?

  5. mrpuma2u

    So Fuxstix news was out gawded by the gawdless heathen scum at media matters. Not that any of the mouth breathing, hover round driving idiots watching fuxstix will bother to fact check. Ugh.

      1. JustPixelz

        Statistically, we were not safe on 1 day out of the billion* days he was POTUS. That's mostly safe. Like Romney's plan to cut taxes for trillionaires is mostly stupid.
        _________________________
        * Apparently, he was actually in office 2,922 days (about one for each 9/11 victim). it only seems like 1,000,000,000.

    1. SayItWithWookies

      Well, according to the Old Testament, whose authors set the precedent for this kind of crap, The LORD punishes the evildoers in his own time — so that pious king who got killed in battle at Megiddo (I can't remember his name right now and don't feel like looking it up) soon after his coronation, it was punishment for the acts of the previous king who was worldly and made Judea prosperous but ignored the Temple strictures and the Levites who were its priests.

      So anyway, by that logic, 9/11 was The LORD's punishment for Bill Clinton. You know, just like Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson said.

      1. Chichikovovich

        I think we have a few decades to wait for the Clinton punishment. 9/11 was God's response to Grover Cleveland's illegitimate child. He's a busy man.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      "I ask that the people of the United States honor and remember the victims of September 11, 2001, and their loved ones through prayer…"

      Well, Obama did forget to tell us who to pray to. And you just can't let the American People pray to anybody… it's gotta be Jebus, dammit!

  6. ttommyunger

    Hah! Busted! I spoke with God personally only this very morning and she told me in no uncertain terms that Doocey and his entire crew should just shut up and fuck off, so there!

  7. ManchuCandidate

    If god is as all powerful as the Xtians claim he is then he doesn't need to worry about whether or not a single man (even if he is the most powerful (and interesting?) man on earf) says his name.

    Or this god fella is one insecure asshole getting his minions to force others to call out his name (when not fucking.)

    1. jodyleek

      Exactly. And furthermore, why the hell would I pray to a "god" that is all-powerful and would presumably have the power to thwart the 9/11 attacks? Wouldn't I be guilty of murder if I stood by and watched my child being murdered if I had the power to stop it?

      The Santa Claus-like Xtian "God" is a lie that is perpetrated by the powerful for their own benefit.

      1. BoatOfVelociraptors

        Beardy men from the sky sorting good from bad on Christmas, and handing out presents is what you tell children to get them to behave. Some people never grow up.

  8. BaldarTFlagass

    I wonder if it would shut these fuckers up if Obama were to do a little Chauncey Gardner walk across the Reflecting Pool. Nah.

    1. Pithaughn

      Oh, is that why the first lady is all "let's get the garden all fine and dandy, all will be well if we let the seasons play out in the garden" ?

  9. ph7

    "Does the President of the United States call on people to pray for those lives lost? No.

    Some fundies claim you should only pray for living, not the dead – the dead have already faced their judgment, there is not left to pray for. Mormons, on the other hand, are called upon to pray for the dead. Religion is weird that way – the made up rules can be re-arranged all the time.

      1. sewollef

        I've been to purgatory, it's not all it's cracked up to be I can tell you.

        But it is preferable to being molested by some clergyperson.

  10. HarryButtle

    Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson claimed that Obama has “called for a moment of silence, but has not called for the word God. So some people are asking, why is God being left out again?”

    Because God NEVER RSVP's, and then he shows up anyway and gets drunk and hits on everybody else's wives and then gets all smite-y when anybody tries to take His keys away. Prick.

  11. calliecallie

    After the actual 9/11 terrorist attack, when George W said the best way the American people could help would be to go out and spend money, that's exactly what I did. Bought two suits at Talbots that very weekend. A Republican colleague and I laughed about this once, because he went out and bought a new car for the same reason. We stood behind the President and honored his request.

    It makes me really angry and sad to think that if – God forbid! – something like September 11 were to happen on Obama's watch, these Fox dicks would totally make it his fault, the Rethuglicans would totally make it his fault, and the public would not respond in the same unified way they did before.

    Fox News and their ilk are ruining this country, IMHO.

    1. Preferred Customer

      You know, I also bought a car that weekend, but it was less about patriotic duty and more about retail therapy. I'm not sure it made me feel any better.

    2. Isyaignert

      No way could GeeDumb have gotten his war in Iraq without Fux News. In fact, he owes his pResidency to his cousin who was working at Fux during the 2000 election. He is the one who called Florida for GeeDumb and all other news sources followed suit because that's what they do. That became the meme. Bush won FL, but as we now know, he actually did not.

      Just imagine if Gore had fought harder. I know, I know, Lieberman blows it for me too.

    The U.K. sent its bible thumpers to America and its criminals to Australia.

    Is it too late to trade?

    1. sewollef

      "Is it too late to trade?"

      All sales are final my friend. No returns, no exchanges, no fucking way.

      NPR had some English clergyman on the wireless Sunday morning complaining that the Church of England has become the butt of jokes and is more like a Monty Python sketch since so few people attend church in the UK.

      It's a thoroughly secular country with an agnostic and an atheist as PM and Deputy PM.

  13. Preferred Customer

    I don't know what makes me angrier/sadder/more in need of a good, stiff drink of communion wine: That these idiots engage in a baseless attack of the President on his supposed lack of fealty to their invisible sky king, or that the President feels the need to pander to them by actually engaging in acts of fealty to their invisible sky king.

  14. RRoccoco

    Did Comedy Central take over Fox Broadcasting in a leveraged buyout? That's the only explanation I can come up with.

  15. PinkoPopulist

    At some point it has to stop becoming news that the comedy-variety hour Fox & Friends is blatantly lying to its lobotomized viewers, who undoubtedly lap it up with the enthusiasm of a mutt who has spent the last 24 hours staggering through the desert.

    1. aintmisbehaven

      Sigh! This shit is getting old. If god is who they say he is then why are these dipshits still talking? Shouldn't they be smitted or something?

    These obnoxious, biddying god-fetishizing witless jackdawing monkeyfucking acephalic spoiled worthless myopic treacherous contrarian fartsucking puddingheaded harpies need to start visiting fuckin' reality once in a fucking while and stop pissing on every fucking thing that doesn't serve their hideous wrinkled greedheaded fucking overlord without thinking about it. Motherfuckers.

      1. SayItWithWookies

        Thank you — the surfeit of piety that pervades 9/11 (at my workplace no less) gets my bile up to the point where I'm in danger of taking it out on some poor undeserving shlub who's at the wrong place at the wrong time. So this was a great opportunity to blow some of that off so I don't become a danger to others.

    1. DCBloom

      Read that aloud to hubby…. we gave you a standing O as we wiped away the tears. Hammie is right, that was beautiful

    2. elviouslyqueer

      You had me at "contrarian fartsucking puddingheaded harpies."

      Well played, Wooks. Well played indeed.

    1. Gleem McShineys

      MORE separation? What, it's not enough for the FOX Nation to be completely and utterly separated from reality? That Doocy's left brain half is completely and utterly separated from the right half?

      What's next, you want there to be some kind of separation between the Republican party and FOX News? Sheesh, some people…

    1. MadBrahms

      These are the same disingenuous cockwaffles who accuse Obama of using Osama's death for "political purposes". Ugh. To follow up "this most somber of days" with "get this, here's a chance to score some points", yeah, you called it.

    2. bikerlaureate

      They pull down nice paychecks for their bald-faced lies. Subsequent events don't matter. Motivations don't matter.

      Give me guileless assholes over these tools any day of the week.

    3. Gleem McShineys

      Was that a prayer? Because it sure looks like it was answered.

      Just like that POOF they are assholes, and always have been.

  17. freakishlywrong

    Anyone else tired of the miserable wallowing we do on 9/11? Instead actually giving a shit about the first responders by ensuring they get healthcare, we sit around and compete who can say God more while counting how many prayers for the victims there are. Move on, Ameriduh.

    1. MadBrahms

      Our fixation also has the effect of further diverting attention from / interest in the thousands of people killed or disappeared in the name of "justice". Self-pity justifying self-righteousness, rinse, repeat every year.

      The first responders healthcare thing remains a puzzle to me. Not only is it actually right, it's also the sort of thing that one would think would make a good photo op. I don't get it.

      1. freakishlywrong

        A comedian with a fake news show had to shame the (R-assholes) in congress to pass that thing. They were fully on board to let them just perish. And then whinge about the victims.

    2. JustPixelz

      Two people who worked for my (large) company were killed on 9/11. I didn't work here then, but it still strikes close to home. They were on-site with a customer in an office and killed. I don't want to forget that or move on.

      I am tired of the sanctimony, hypocrisy and — particularly — how Republicans wave the bloody shirt to say Democrats will stand by and watch terrorists carry out their plots. Above all we should remember we are Americans who value freedoms at the expense of our safety. How else to explain 15-20,000 gun deaths each year, bail, search warrants, 75MPH speed limits.

      1. freakishlywrong

        I lived there, Pixels, it's not the people I'm talking about, it's the cynical opportunism of the you know whos that I can't abide.

  18. Oblios_Cap

    “called for a moment of silence, but has not called for the word God."

    Was he supposed to say "I call for the word God?" This makes even less sense than most of Faux's bullshit.

  19. CarolinaStewPie

    I want to hear more about this amazing guy who resides on Planet Kolob. When will Steve and Gretchen talk about him?

  20. Dildeaux

    Dont know why I bother, but pastors call for prayers. Imams call for prayers. Presdents, not so much.

    And fuck you doocy.

  21. zippy_w_pinhead

    I'm sure these asshats were just as outraged when the GOP blocked funding for the first responders.

    Oh, wait…

  22. delaney_blom

    Media Matters falls right into Fox & Friends' trap:

    September 7 was Friday. Do you know who prays on Friday? (I'll give you three guesses among the major monothestic traditions)

    Not to mention that any decent person knows that the entity-who-should-not-be-named-for-fear-of-burning-in-hell-for-blasphemy only accepts prayers for the dead on the anniversary (on the Gregorian calendar, tyvm) of their death/mortal wounding.

  23. mavenmaven

    They should be asking God why he didn't at least catch the poor jumpers, or stop the planes in the first place.

    I only just now watched the vid, because TRANSCRIPT !! But wondering whether the third idiot was out sick or had a knot in his shoelace or something. And lo and behold!!! There at :38 , our hero!! Staring grimly at the dust bunny on the floor. Wondering what's for lunch…..Sammiches?

    So here's what Hopey needs to do – issue a proclamation that says the following: I BHO, being empowered, proclaim today to be God, Jesus, God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus,God, Jesus day. Amen.

  26. barto

    Why was God left out again? Is this in reference to maybe God having stepped out for a smoke or something during that whole 9/11 mess? Just curious.

  27. fawkedifiknow

    Remember when the Obama administration accused Fox News of being a wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican Party, or the other way around, and the people at Fox said they would be fair to the Obama administration, etc? And, they were?

    Me neither.

    Jesus H. fucking Christ. WTF. Sometimes the good old days actually were good.

    I'll believe there is a God when God burns the Fox & Friends studio to the ground. Until then, the Fox & Friends crew can go fuck themselves.

  31. Chet Kincaid_

    Wow, this is a first! The FOX friends are mouthing the words they were ordered to say, but their demeanor says they think this is too low even for FOX.

    Does anybody think of that crummy '70s limited animation crapfest "Super Friends" when they hear "FOX and Friends", also?

  32. BlueStateLibel

    It's OK, Mitt Romney and the Mormon Church are busy converting all those lost on 9/11 to Mormonism.

    Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'

    So what part of "community service" don't these motherfuckers understand?

  35. proudgrampa

    I, for one, am SHOCKED, SHOCKED, I tell you, that no mention is made of the Flying Spaghetti Monster today. I just know that a dish of pasta with a sauce of your choice (I prefer red),and a nice crisp sacramental chianti would be a fine tribute to those who were senselessly slaughtered 11 years ago today.

    So fuck you, Steve Douchey, or whatever the fuck your name is.

  36. Generation[redacted]

    Doesn't the Constitution say something about there being no religious test for being President?

    Your God or your Constitution. We report, you decide.

    1. proudgrampa

      You know, Gen, this is the precise idea that has always puzzled me about American politics. Supposedly, our country was founded on religious freedom and tolerance and freedom FROM religion.

      So instead of moving toward the future (where is my air car?) we continue to slide back to some Crusader era where the topic of the day always seems to be "My god is better than your god."

  37. TootsStansbury

    Someone left The Lord out in the rain…something something…and I'll never have the recipe agaiiiiiin OH NOES!!!!!!

  38. prommie

    The word "true," it means something different to them. Even when pressed on things like this and confronted with direct refutation, they will insist that what they said while "technically" inaccurate, is nevertheless an accurate statement because it refllects some kind of symbolic truth that they honestly believe. Obama may have said the words, but he cannot have been sincere, they will say, because his "otherness" (they will say Kenyan anti-colonialist community organizer socialist, but they mean "niggerhood") simply makes it impossible to believe in and revere God the way they do. In other words, if he denies he's a witch, that proves he's a witch. Niggers, oops, I mean witches, are tricky that way.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      Man I hate that word. But I am waiting for the day, surely to come soon (as they say) when ol Gretch or the douche just stands up and yells it repeatedly, madly, until they drag them off set.

      1. prommie

        I am sorry, but I insist on translating their deliberately deceitful language. Its what they all have to hold back, thats for sure. One of them will just fucking lose it and go off like Michael Richards, except it won't just be the worst fucking joke ever, it will be the honest expression of the hate I tend to think Richards was referencing, and not actually feeling.

  39. comrad_darkness

    God let 9/11 happen. God lets Fox News continue to exist. Why in the hell would anyone thank God for these things?

  40. prommie

    You know, its really just faith-based reasoning, faith-based reporting. In their minds, things are not established or proven by objective facts and logical inferences drawn from objective facts. They believe that they can establish a proposition through BELIEFS that they hold. They cannot distinguish between objective fact and subjective belief (many narcissists I have known seem to have this difficulty, they are so self-centered that they cannot even conceive that any person could believe anything different, that all disagreement is per se the result of ignorance or mendacity). And they really do not understand the concept of a logical operator, or even of a formal syllogism. They take facts and link them with vague connectors which really just express their doctrine, emotions and beliefs, and yet they think these conclusions to be irrefutable. I am using a lot of big words, I guess, when what I mean is they are fucking stupid.

    Well, I found the antidote to their utter nonsense — this actually moved me. David Kurtz at TPM commented on Joe Biden's speech today in Shanksville PA and posted the transcript as well. Check it out if you'd like to see no nonsense, just reverence and respect and dignity. You might want to get yourself a little privacy first.

    The job of Fox & Friends every morning is to set the bar for intellectual discourse so low that the rest of the day's line up seems brilliant in comparison.

    a presidential proclamation declaring September 11, 2012, to be Patriots Day…a separate official proclamation declaring the days between September 7 and September 9 as national days of prayer and remembrance in commemoration of the September 11 terrorist attacks

    really? do we need all this? is this evil of me to ask?

    This is the kind of bullshit that sucks the oxygen right outta the room. The methane is dizzying and now I have a headache.

    Cue trolls–bet yahoo is on FIRE.

    Let's be charitable here. Fox just wants people to be reminded so that they can pray to God during important times. And who knows when an important time might be? This is a diverse society, and we need to respect the wishes of those who believe in God. I think the government should immediately provide funding and secure land for the construction of religious houses of worship that will openly call people to prayer. Loudly and regularly. Like maybe five times a day.

    And they should build one close to the WTC site too. That will make the Fox people happy, and really, what's the harm?

    Feel free, Farts & Frauds, to come on down from mid-town to my local bar in downtown Manhattan. My fellow patrons, many of them cops, firefighters and other union members would love to make your acquaintance. BYOA*

    How many times have we heard from sinless Christian lunatics (cough) Pat Robertson or Huckabee over at FOX NEWS that God allowed 9-11 to take place because this country allows homos to have sex with one another and that we don't pray enough? To which God responded….leave me out of this.

    Why would anyone pray for the lives lost? Those people have been dead for 11 years! Hope about we pray for the living for a change?
