I was greatly entertained by the 1/6 committee meeting tonight to hold Mark Meadows in criminal contempt of congress, for a couple of reasons. First of all, in the two previous contempt votes, it was quick. Chairman Thompson and co-Chair Cheney read statements, and then they called the vote. But not tonight. Tonight, almost every member of the committee wanted time to speak and dump shit on the head of a former colleague. I loved the public shaming.
But it was co-Chair Liz Cheney’s prepared statement that got my whiskers twitching. She read out into the record a series of text messages that were sent to Meadows asking him to get the President to do something. And lo and behold, they were all from FUX News personalities!
And those frenzied text messages, sent at the zenith of the destruction showed two things. First of all, it showed that the FUX News stars all know that it was over!, and that Trump had actually lost, with no vote fraud. Laura Ingraham begged Meadows to have Trump tell the crowd to stand down, because he was destroying his legacy. FUX host Brian Kilmeade begged Meadows to make Trump act, saying that he was destroying everything he had accomplished. And Sean Hannity begged Meadows to get Trump to call it off before it destroyed everything. Their wording clearly shows that all of these people knew that Trump had lost, fair and square, and that it was over.
But it was the second revelation that was even worse, especially for FUX and these soulless assholes. In the days following the insurrection, pretty much every FUX News personality other than Chris Wallace hopped onto the Antifa/BLM movements for being responsible for the violence at the Capitol. The Trump protesters were peaceful little lambs, overpowered by far left anarchists!
OK. If that’s the case, then why were those same FUX personalities desperately texting Mark Meadows in the middle of the riot to demand that he have Trump call his minions off? Those frantic texts show that, at the very moment of the insurrection, they all knew that the riot was nothing more or less than a mob of Trump supporters, with no Antifa or BLM protesters involved.
I honestly don’t know how much more shameful that these ghouls can get. There texts in the moment clearly show that they all knew that it was Trump supporters causing the violence, and that the election results were fair and impartial. Somebody needs to petition the FCC to pull the News moniker from the FUX Propaganda Network.
