first rule of holes

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.

    • HogeyeGrex

      Well, maybe not reflection.

  • 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.

    • http://wonkette.com smokefilledroommate

      I'm sure they followed it up with a Juan Valdez commercial. And then Megyn Kelly made some awful Speedy Gonzalez joke.

            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.

          • 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."

          • 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.

        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.

    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.

    • HistoriCat

  • 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?)

      • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

        Exactly. At war forever and ever, with anyone they can find.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Johnny-Appletruth/133951326629923?sk=wall deanbooth

      Your earlier tale of your mom's regular intake of Fox and output of talking pts. etc. made me laugh & weep both at once.

      • 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.)

      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"

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Defeatably_Joe

    But remember, the problem is that Latinos aren't hearing the GOP message for them clearly enough

    • Ruhe

      Well, duh. How can they hear the message if they're all out in the desert where there are no tv's?

      • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Defeatably_Joe

        Well, maybe we'll get it if Republicans just start telling us their message VERY. LOUDLY. AND. VERY. SLOWLY.

    • 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.

    • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Crank_Tango

    • BaldarTFlagass

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

      • Crank_Tango

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

  • http://wonkette.com 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.

    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.

    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.
