Paul Krugman Op-Ed: Republicans Were Wrong About EVERYTHING In 2014

In a delightful Christmas Eve Op-Ed, Nobel Prize winning economist delivers a big fat lump of coal to Republicans and their propaganda machine: You were wrong about everything in 2014:

All year Americans have been bombarded with dire news reports portraying a world out of control and a clueless government with no idea what to do.

Yet if you look back at what actually happened over the past year,…

My mam just called me downstairs to tell me about this weird but funny tv show that came on which took the piss of news channels by being all dramatic and over the top. She didn’t even know what the show was called so I go and see

It was Fox News

My mam saw Fox News and thought it must be a comedy show because no real news channel can be that nutty

Fox News is intentionally trying to slander protestors and incite violence (no surprise). The original chant goes as follows:

"We can’t stop!
We won’t stop!
'til killer cops are in cell blocks!”

But Fox News cuts the footage early so that it sounds like she says: 

"So kill a cop."

 

"Well, Islam basically advocates murder-"

"The Taliban are just doing what Islam has taught them-"

"Islam is the most sexist and misogynistic-"

"Women aren’t even allowed to leave the house-"

"Women can’t even go to school-"

"Al-Qaeda is just a part of the Islamic religion-"

"Seventy virgins-"

"Islam teaches terrorism-"

"Islam teaches-"

Christian and want to understand Islam? No Prob. King of beards and ex-Priest, Yusuf Estes explains it in this video:

Stop learning about other religions and cultures through CNN and Fox News basically.

Fox News edited the video to make it appear protesters said to kill cops. LIES. The complete chant: We can’t stop. We won’t stop. Til killer cops are in cell blocks.

Fox News’ racist reporting continues, and people believe this crap. This is but another example of why we cannot believe reports by mainstream media. Fox continues to prove what we’ve been saying all along… The media is biased; media lies; media is racist towards Black people.

Post the link to the video all over their Facebook and Twitter feeds. Let them know we know they lied.

Their statement:

Tawanda Jones sat down with Fox45 News Monday night, one day after we aired a clip of her from a protest in Washington, DC where we reported protesters were chanting “kill a cop”. Tawanda’s brother, Tyrone West, died in police custody in 2013. She told us the chant was actually “We won’t stop….We can’t stop…. ‘til killer cops…. are in cell blocks”. We have apologized for the error and followed up with an interview with Tawanda. We will have more tonight on Fox45 News at Ten and you can watch the entire interview on our website under Raw News.

So tell us why you aired this when you did not know what was said? Why level claims you could not back up? Fox has been caught too many times for this shit to be accidental.

Slimy Baltimore FOX Affiliate Caught Faking “Kill a Cop” Protest Chant

Last night, Baltimore’s WBFF aired a video of protesters chanting “kill a cop”– evidence, it claimed, of murderously violent rhetoric on the part of anti-brutality protesters in Washington, D.C. The only problem? The protesters weren’t chanting “kill a cop” at all, and there’s video evidence to prove it.

The current national pastime appears to be constructing elaborate ways of laying responsibility for recent police shootings at the feet of anti-police-brutality protesters. This, of course, is bullshit. Faced with the daunting task of shifting blame for broad and escalating distrust of police away from the murderous bastards themselves and onto mostly non-violent activists, our insanely cynical news media has been forced to dig deep into their bag of tricks.

The rhetorical line has it that the all-too-recent lack of unequivocal support for police actions up to and including the murder of unarmed civilians in broad daylight has put rank-and-file cops at grave risk. Well you can just imagine how much more vulnerable they are when reckless cop-hating rioters take to the streets and actively call for the murder of police! Why, just listen to these hate-mongers!

What you are hearing there is a protester in Washington, D.C. shout the following chant:

We can’t stop!

We won’t stop!

'til killer cops are in cell blocks!

Not a particularly provocative chant, all things considered: protesters are announcing their intention to continue organizing until murderous police officers are put in jail. Fair enough!

That is, until Baltimore’s local FOX affiliate got their hands on this video. Here’s their interpretation of it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibeZCkHwb-I

We can’t stop!

We won’t stop!

So kill a cop!

By cutting away from the video mid-chant, FOX’s segment paints protestors as explicitly calling for the murder of police. They’ve depicted a non-violent protest about accountability for police brutality as a bloodthirsty mob.

What’s significant about this act – other than the fact that it is intended for and will be gobbled up by psychotic paranoid racist conservative white people as evidence of the inherent criminality of black people – is that the woman leading the chant is Tawanda Jones, the sister of Tyrone West, who was murdered by Baltimore City Police on July 18, 2013. The West family’s quest for justice for this crime has been overwhelmingly ignored by the city of Baltimore – after 73 weeks’ worth of “West Wednesday” actions, the family has still not even been given Tyrone’s full autopsy report.

Here’s Ms. Jones, speaking at the most recent “West Wednesday” action:

This week Baltimore’s corrupt, inept, and ineffectual police department issued a statement in which they all but explicitly promised retaliatory violence for what they’ve characterized as an “atmosphere of unnecessary hostility” created by politicians and pundits, but of course this line crumbles at the slightest scrutiny: police are killing civilians with impunity, and the media is doing the dirty work of casting those outraged about these killings as the true villains. If there’s an atmosphere of unnecessary hostility, it is the direct handiwork of police and their apologists.

And here she is, on Facebook, responding to FOX’s segment:
