In 1986 Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes created a fake news network with the single goal of supporting right wing extremists whose goal was to replace democracy with fascism. Over the last 34 years this anti-American cable network has divided our nation and spread lies which resulted in anger, hatred, and violence. Their viewers choose to accept lies and ignorance for the sole reason that Fox professes its support of racism, bigotry, and prejudice. Capitalism has replaced the rights guaranteed by the Constitution.
Let’s take a look at how this treasonous organization has harmed our nation in the last 12 years.
After Bush 43 destroyed our nation’s economy, reputation, and future in the leadership of the free world, President Obama was forced to take extreme measures to save our nation’s future. The next Republican president, who was illegitimately elected by the Electoral College, escalated the end of democracy in America.
In early March of this year, Trump continued to lie about two issues. The coronavirus was “going away,” and his administration was fully “prepared to fight the possibility of a pandemic.” Fox praised your failed, illegitimate president who remained in denial of the truth.
Over the last three plus decades Fox has spread lies about the progressive movement in our nation. Any left-wing politician who suggested support of the ideals of our founding fathers has been attacked as a socialist and the extreme label of ‘communist.’
This effort is an effort to cover-up the failure of unrestricted capitalism. Fox is owned by the largest corporations and the wealthiest Americans in our nation. The American people are collateral damage in the goals of the wealthy and the party they have paid for over the last 40 years. Today’s Republicans in name only are the greatest danger to the American people in history. Two world wars, and the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 fail in comparison to the efforts of right-wing politicians led by Donald John Trump to end the future of the United States of America.
I love my country and reject the validity of our current government in Washington. Our nation’s people are uninformed and vulnerable to lies and misdirection. Television is our nation’s greatest enemy. The poorest countries in the world are better informed than the people of the most powerful nation in the world. Why? The truth is simple and undeniable.
Fox Noise is a propaganda machine and not a legitimate news or information network. Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Jeanine Pirro, and others who are paid to lie for Trump every day are traitors to the country they fallaciously claim to revere. They are not real Americans.
Today’s Republican Party in name only, the corporate world, the Christian Religious Right, and Fox News are enemies of my country. I continue to believe in the Constitution which guarantees the rights of all Americans to be protected by our government. Trump television and other anti-American groups continue their attempts to remove the rights guaranteed in the first Amendment and the promise of our founding fathers to preserve the credibility of a free press.
Fox can legitimately be labeled as an agent designated to destroy the future of our nation; a representative of a subversive group whose purpose is to destroy the Constitution of the United States and the rights of the majority.
There has never been a single organization more dedicated to the destruction of America than Fox. Its efforts to end the dream of our founding fathers is unforgivable. The men and women who continue to support this fake news agency share the beliefs of Trump and his circle of sinners. White supremacy, fascism, xenophobia, misogyny, and religious extremism are the foundation of their support for the destruction of my America.
I continue to believe that our nation was founded upon individual rights which do not infringe upon the rights of others. I cherish the fact that America is the most diverse nation in the developed world. I am proud that the people of our nation are more important than the capitalists who control the future of our country. I am a patriot, and the Republican Party of today are traitors and undeserving of their positions in Washington.
