Hi, folks. Instead of passing this story along to the Governor for comment, I decided to answer Elizabeth Warren's diatribe against FOX News myself, as she does not deserve a polite response and the Governor is much nicer than I am. When Warren said “no” to a townhall on FOX News, she must have decided that she’d also try to outdo Hillary Clinton’s infamous “deplorables” comment. Here’s what she said about FOX News (and, by implication, the people who watch it):
Warren: “Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class,” she adds. “Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money—big ad money.”
Wow, Ms. Warren, why don’t you tell us what you really think? It’s you and other hard-core leftists who damage and divide Americans by race and bigotry. It’s you who espouse conspiracy theories, such as that Donald Trump “colluded” with Russians to win the 2016 election, which is turning out to be a load of bunk, like much of what is reported by those news outlets you favor. We’re actually finding out that the Hillary Clinton campaign was the one that “colluded” with foreigners to damage Trump. (She’s also the one who destroyed evidence; can you say “cover-up”?)
So when you claim that FOX News is "giving a megaphone to racists and conspiracists," are you including the Democrat candidates in that group? That's where I see most of the race-obsession and the fake conspiracy blather. They're giving YOU a megaphone. They don't have to invite you on, you know. And I can tell you, many of their viewers were not happy about that.
As for the middle class, you may claim, ridiculously, that you can help them, but the middle class is doing phenomenally better now than it was under Obama. Many of us are saying to the Democrats, "Please, please don't 'help' me!"
So rail all you want. Use race all you want (just as you used it for years and gained advantage by falsely claiming to be "Native American"). Be as nasty, hateful and condescending as you want to those who have a different point of view. You talk this way because you think it will help you win primaries, but you have essentially no chance of becoming President if you’re going to be this ugly and, in effect, insult half the country by calling us racists, so go ahead and flame out big. We’ll watch.
Personally, I’m glad you’re choosing not to do a townhall on FOX News, because now I don’t have to sit through an hour of your drivel and cover it. I can hardly imagine a less enjoyable way to spend my evening.
