Fox News Just Gets It

lo sientoWhat have the Communists at Think Progress found for the Internet this time?

Well, a lot of Republicans, like Haley Barbour and Bobby Jindal and, um, Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News, have been saying Republicans need to stop shitting on the Latino variety of American lest they become todo pendejos del muerte. And Fox agrees so much, they did a whole segment on “The Hispanic Vote in 2012″! And the above is how they illustrated it. At least we know there’s no editorial interference from the owner.

      I think the Pythons have some copyright shit going on with the footage of all their shows. Not that Republicans ever seem to give a fuck about that.

  1. BaldarTFlagass

    That's pretty offensive. They should have used the Frito Bandito instead. Or maybe one of those plaster lawn ornaments of the Mexican guy in a sombrero taking a siesta.

  2. FakaktaSouth

    I guess this explains their use of girls on trampolines whenever they talk about Planned Parenthood too. How dare you notice their not so sub subconscious associative brain programming?

    1. weejee

      And then we gotta go after those Irish drunks. Is that redundant?

      Oh, they've got plenty of tools, every one less sharp than the next. And every problem still looks like a brown, because brown (and darker shades) is the color of problem like green is the color of grass.

      Fox News: We give you a box of hammers; you decide which to hit yourself in the head with.

          1. PhilippePetain

            Wow, I'm humbled. i always think I'm the wizened old hand at these things and that was totally before my time.

          2. SorosBot

            What the fuck?!? How could a major corporation advertise its product with something that offensive? Not to mention the actors agree to do that.

          3. finallyhappy

            Is that a joke? Plenty of racist commercials over time- I'm sure someone here could find a lot of them if they wanted to spend the time.

          4. Schmannnity

            I remember that at the time, the ad was considered "progressive" since this was obviously a new generation of Chinese who had adopted "modern ways."

          5. Geminisunmars

            And they actually used "real" Asians (called orientals at the time) to act in the commercial. Can't tell you how many movies my generation grew up watching the "ethnic" actors, who were whites with brown shoe polish and heavy eye liner. Including Marlon Brando.

          6. BoroPrimorac

            The Asian couple speak better English than the white woman.

            "How do you get shirt so clean, Mr. Lee?"

          7. Dudleydidwrong

            In the original version the white woman leaves the laundry singing to herself "Ching, ching Chinaman, Ching, ching Chinaman…"

          8. BaldarTFlagass

            We olds grew up in a different world than exists today. Some of us are able to deal with the changes that have occurred over the last 40 years, but then there's a lot of folks out there who can't.

      1. BaldarTFlagass

        And there are plenty of "Welcome to Obamerica" way-stations/rest areas on the route, giving out free abortions, appendectomies, cold water, and Dom Perignon.

  3. CapeClod

    They could have just played the segment from "West Side Story" where Rita Moreno sings "I Want To Be In America."

  4. SmutBoffin

    "Hi, File Footage Department? This is Steve Doocy up at Fox 'n' Friends…no, the other one who looks like a talking penis. Anyway, I need some footage of Mexicans for our coverage of Latino voters….Wait, there's more kinds of Latinos than just Mexicans? Fuck it, just send up whatever you got left in the queue from the election."

    1. actor212

      "Hi, File Footage Department? This is Steve Doocy up at Fox 'n' Friends…no, the other one who looks like a talking penis."

      Joo meeng NOT Not-Dooshie?

      1. SmutBoffin

        No, "NOT Not-Dooshy" is the blonde one who just stares at the camera until the Director activates the electric shock device in her chair and she pipes up with something dumb.

  5. natl_[redacted]_cmdr

    Murdoch's tweet: "Must have sweeping, generous immigration reform, make existing law-abiding Hispanics welcome Most are hard working family people."

    And most Australians are not lying psychopaths.

  6. Antispandex

    Yeah, my in-laws tell me that those Messicans come over here to vote, and then because Obama screwed up the economy, they have to sneak back home. They seem to really be serious too. I hope this isn't genetic or anything because…damn.

  7. FakaktaSouth

    So here's my serious question. Is Fox seriously a tool of the Republican party, as in actually trying to support the "movement" or are they just trying to give their audience what they want? Is it purely a money making operation with no care for what it does to the party over all and simply going for views by the people who enjoy having their prejudices validated? (who do happen to be Repubs, sure, but it's not going to gather in anyone who is not a racist fuckwad, no?)

    1. Ruhe

      I'm beginning to wonder though if it actually is a "movement". I'm not sure they want to "win" so much as they just want to be at war forever.

    2. doloras

      When in doubt, assume that GREED trumps all other motivations in a capitalist economy. In fact, didn't Lenin say "the capitalist will happily sell you the rope to hang him with"?

      1. LibertyLover

        I have more… like when she said that Obama was supposed to be a Quote "Constitutional Lawyer" unquote but yet he was doing all of these unconstitutional things…
        When I asked her, "Like what, exactly? "
        Her response was, "I don't know…"

        Propaganda. You gotta love it. ( And she is not an uneducated woman, either.)

  8. Eve8Apples

    I'm just shocked they didn't show Latinos riding up to the voting place on donkeys, wearing sombreros and ponchos, eating burritos and drinking Tequila shots.

    1. Botlrokit

      I do miss his weekly "NAMBLA" joke, and "This Week In God", but cognitive dissonance humor is pretty good.

    1. finallyhappy

      His dad says there is nothing to worry about- so when this guy did something crazy his dad would say I think he was fine. Why is that? It happens with the family/parents frequently of killers/rapists/robbers- it seems- even when you read the whole story and see a long pattern of bad or illegal behavior. How come no one ever says " yeah, he's been a crazy motherfucker for a long time"

    1. Botlrokit

      Yes. All through the sixties and 70's, white people weren't angry with blacks; they were saddened because blacks wouldn't act more white.

    2. BoroPrimorac

      That's because the GOP is like a stupid American who thinks speaking Spanish consists of yelling in English and putting an "o" at the end of every word.

  9. widestanceromance

    I'm really disappointed in Fox for not running footage of race riots with this story. Must be saving that for the Maine Coon-gate story which they will run for the next 6 months.

  10. Esteev

    Messicans are committed to democracy. Just look at the length of those voting lines. It's as if they snake all the way to the border!

  11. Eve8Apples

    If the GOP is genuinely serious about wanting to get more of votes from women, blacks, Latinos and Asians, they should take Faux News off the air. Faux News is doing them no favors.

  12. Crank_Tango

    They're just sneaking over for the free gifts. Me, I am mad as hell that I didn't get an Obamatoaster like all these freeloadin freeloaders, looking for an easy day of it, picking lettuce in the fields around Salinas.

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      Obamatoaster? So instead of your toast coming out with the image of Jesus or Mary, you get Bamz? Cool.

      1. Crank_Tango

        Yeah, you can choose between that or the Obamaphone, but the texting charges are outrageous, and the sexting charges are even worse.

  13. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    If the Latinos are going to go to all that trouble to sober up and get their lazy asses over the boarder to vote for Obama, you would think that Obama would at least send some buses down to the boarder to pick them up.

  14. SayItWithWookies

    Well at least FOX has moved past Speedy Gonzalez and the Taco Bell chihuahua — give them a few iterations of this and the next stereotypical image to come down the pike and they might be ready to treat brown-skinned Americans like they were legitimate citizens. Not that we shouldn't deport Rupert and Sean and Gretchen and all the rest to Puerto Rico so's they're not allowed to vote, just out of an abundance of caution.

  15. LibertyLover

    OH please let there be some unpleasant consequences for him for this. Perhaps having to disclose his donors? Perhaps having to pay taxes on all of those funds? Please, Oh Please. That's all I want for Christmas.

  16. T3rbo

    These guys need to report to the camp for deprogramming/warranty issues. They are stuck in the election 2012 module, where you can't say pepper belly or wetback, but you can't stop saying border fence and illegal, either. The re flash is going to be awesome, though: total holographic virgin mary images everywhere, sexy latinas talking about pop music, loud mexican guy laughing and or whistling at everything sound effects, Che quotes, it's going to be big

  17. carlgt1

    all Hispanics are illegals – even the ones that lived here before the Plymouth Rock Puritans of 1620?

    1. TribecaMike

      My ancestor Hans Kierstead arrived in New Amsterdam in 1638, and we still haven't been accepted as true Americans by the Canarsee tribe. Frickin' elitists.

  18. Misty Malarky

    Maybe the kinder/gentler GOP will allow 'Red Injuns' to become real Americans.

    They can vote using smoke signals!

  19. TribecaMike

    Needz moar Freddy Fender, Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs, Flaco Jiménez , Augie Meyers, Doug Sahm, etc.

  20. Blueb4sinrise

    Actually I think the screengrab on the right is a team of ecologists monitoring buffelgrass encroachment after a wildfire.

  21. rocktonsam

    Fox's first move will be getting rid of Trapper John on that Saturday morning bidness show and replacing him with George Lopez.

  22. Eve8Apples

    Sometimes I think that deep in the bowels of Faux News lives an encampment of bleeding heart liberals who write their lines and direct their programming because the more Faux News speaks, the easier it becomes for liberals to win elections.

  23. sundaytrucker

    Are they heading back to mow Mitt's yard now that he's no longer running for president for pete's sake.

  24. Tangled sin tax

    Having people speak loudly and carefully to me is the only thing that lets this old deaf person have a clue as to what the conversation in the room is about. 'Course then when I know I'm not all that interested. And get off my lawn.

  25. Steverino247

    This just in…

    The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (1848) allowed Mexicans in the annexed areas the choice of returning to Mexico or becoming U.S. citizens with full rights.

    So, if your Mexican ancestors stayed, you have the right not to be stopped by Sheriff Joe just because you're brown. You even get to continue to speak Spanish and keep your other cultural heritage stuff unmolested.

  26. Gayer_Than_Thou

    It's kind of delicious when conservative entertainment media completely undercuts the Republican party.

  27. awwalk56

    Yep faux stir that barrel of shit with a boat oar. Make it nice and smooth for the toothless pap sucking saps who drink your shit in. Don't forget straws.

    Steve Dochey for Preznit! Black-haired guy who isn't Steve Douchey for Vice Preznit, cross-eyed ignorant slut blonde for Secretary of my dick. FIXED!
