Just 6 short years ago, Faux News was the State-Approved Media. Funny how times change.

Well I absolutely remember Bush being criticized on Fox News. Hell, they are still doing it. You do know that they have liberal pundits and contributors on Fox... almost ever hour?

But you're missing the point of this particular political satire piece. It's about Obama consonantly whining about Fox News, like a little bitch.

Oh, you meant by sidekicks and contributors. I meant by hosts or anchors. Does Fox have anchors? But whatever. We both know it's the Republican mouthpiece, as much a MSNBC is the Democrat's. Funny how a little honesty scares people. I got the point, I just found it funny when put in context of Fox News during the Bush years.

Now that's more like it...Thanks to the George Soros-communist-sponsored Obama regime and his left-wing libtard goons and cronies and Hollywood hypocrites this is what they're all about...

I meant did you utilize some form of drawing device to create the likenesses of the politically liberal humans in the picture so desperately pushing buttons on their Fox News Avoidance Devices.

My apologies for not making myself clearer in my original query.  My tendency toward  brevity causes me no end of conversational discomfort and yet I persist.

Yes, it did.  While I'd have been all Chris Matthews-y were it self drawn, it is a fine reuse of the older document.

If you are going to watch Fox News (which I would not condone at all) then you should also watch another station like NBC.

Fox does the will of the republican party. 
NBC does the will of the democratic party. 

Watching both gives you two sides of a story. They both are horrible, but NBC is a bit better than Fox.

1st clip: What, you're upset that women are on TV? That coverage seems entirely reasonable. , especially since that clip is an interview. 

2nd clip: They were covering an arms bust; literally illegal firearms were being sold to professional criminals under the table. You're honestly going to defend arms trafficking and organized crime?

"1st clip: What, you're upset that women are on TV? That coverage seems entirely reasonable. , especially since that clip is an interview. "

1st clip:  yes...anytime some refutes your statements it must be "sexism" Typical leftist....

2nd clip: Let us take a look at what one of your fellow canadians thinks about the broadcast.(he received top vote honors)
im canadian and the language used in this news cast make me ashamed of these broadcasters i know that there was nothing illegal about half of the weapons in that video ar-15s are not "prohibited" they are "restricted" (meaning you need another couple of hours in class and a second test to get one) as well as pistols the only hting in that video that would be illegal would be the full auto g18 they showed a law abiding AMERICAN shooting! FUCK! learn a little before you talk about it new agencies!

It seems people in Canada don't even believe canadian news is accurate, which leads one to believe maybe you live under a rock.

In both cases they are relating false, unsubstantiated and outright inaccurate information to sway public opinion. 

Firstly, she is saying a gun registry has reduced violence, that has been dis proven more times than I will bother to recall. 
Secondly, most of those crimes have and are committed by illegally smuggled and obtained firearms, mainly handguns(Not rifles and shotguns as she has stated) that all the laws in the world would never stop coming into the country. 
Thirdly, she is blaming an inanimate object for the conscious decision of a human being to harm another.
Fourth, She keeps talking about violent crime against women to make it an emotional, not rational issue as you are trying to make it by implying that I am somehow a sexist for refuting her supposed supporting "Facts" when there is no basis for it beyond the happenstance that the reporter and interviewee are both female. 

In the second video they are using false and misleading wording to make it sound like AR15s and other firearms are illegal in Canada. The other stupid little word game they play is using words like "Tactical firearms", "Assault rifles" and so on. Language like this is silly, misleading and meant to scare weak minds. 

There is nothing beyond what the news agency said that would imply that the store ever transacted to sell firearms illegally to criminals. All of the weapons on display were from the stores current inventory and legally imported into Canada under the existing laws. They just put out the scariest looking firearms that they took from inventory to put on display.

And yes, I am going to defend arms trafficking as I believe the people of the world have a right to freely trade in any firearm that they see fit without it ever being scrutinized by anyone or anything since that is what makes the world a safer place.

If you're so removed from reality that you think arms trafficking is a moral act...wait, you're a Randroid, aren't you? It's cosmically hilarious that your idea of individuality forces material conformity on everything, but that's besides the point.

Arms trafficking is not only illegal but wrong. You cannot put weapons the hands of terrorists, gangsters, and dictators and then try to justify it. It's repugnant, and thinking anyone's entitled to profit at that cost is disgusting. Your right not to be "regulated" apparently trumps the happiness, livelihood, and safety of everyone adversely affected by these illicit transactions, according to you. 

There's a reason the Iran-Contra affair was a scandal, ya shruggalo. Seriously, do you even have thoughts in your head that weren't put there? 

---

~iMaksim, while your satire is certainly biting, I feel like you're missing the point in favor of fear-mongering and red-baiting (making fun of Communists). Fox News would be more reliable if they would bother checking their facts. They can be as conservative as they like, they just need to report the news in order to be considered a news organization. It's not too much to ask that they be truthful, is it?

What the fuck is a "Randroid"? Why do you keep calling names can you not have an intellectual conversation and open yourself up to new information? Oh wait, answered my own question there...

The same government that you are speaking of perpetrating Iran-Contra is the number one supplier of arms to terrorists, gangsters and dictators. I am speaking of arming the free and innocent people of the world, not the tyrants that are created by the same groups that fight them...

The truth is, whenever there is a new regulation or law put into place the only people it disarms are the people who do right and do their best to be good human beings. 

I would know, as a student of international politics, military and intelligence affairs one of the things I do is look at the weapons, equipment and training of various armed groups. I am also well versed in the laws pertaining to the manufacture and sale of arms on the international market. 

Many of these laws only serve to the convenience of the governments enforcing them and are disregarded as soon as it has served it's purpose.

For example, the Wassenar agreement and ITAR:



When the Arab spring began and later when the Islamic extremists began pouring into the countries in revolt these pieces of legislature clearly stated that terrorist organisations and any suspected purchasers would not be authorized to purchase implements of war and yet all over the news in Libya all I saw were new 2011-2012 Romanian AKM, PSL and RPKS along with other weapons technologies that you would think a terrorist group would be able to source were there by the tens of thousands. 

A smaller quantity of a few hundred or thousands would have been understandable with corruption and all, but the only way that they would be so well supplied is if the governments with responsibility to enforce these laws not only had been lax, but footed the bill for tens of millions of dollars worth of armament to be given to extremist fanatics.

Currently in Syria, the Jihadist rebels are being armed with U.S. and Israeli weapons. Not 5 miles from where I sit right now the US Air Force Special Operations Command is training a "Free Syrian Air Force". The US taxpayer is paying the bill for their aircraft and training that will most assuredly be used to kill and maim innocent Syrians more than be used against Assad's forces. 

This won't be the first time we have created more terrorists than we kill either. Are you familiar with the School of the Americas in fort Benning, Ga.? That is where we trained all the thugs administering U.S. foreign policy in South America during the 80s and all through out the world even today. That campus is where the death squad was brainstormed. If you do not know a death squad doesn't go hunting rebels in the jungle, they find the villages, rape and murder the wives and kill the children so that there won't be a next generation to fight the government in power.

I could write you a series of books on who the real terrorist are and how they operate, but the point I am making is that we need to stop arming the governments and start arming the free people of the world. 

Also, as far as my day job? I am a firearms designer and I experiment with alternative energy and space travel.



"We all dream of a world of sunshine, happiness, and peace.

The problem is...

...while half of the people think it sounds like a wonderful place to live,
the other half think it sounds like a wonderful place to pillage."

My God your are ignorant! I don't create propaganda, baseless or otherwise. What I do is PARODY propaganda to satirically mock liberal, progressive, Democrat policies.

You want Irony? Try this on. The above parody of ChiCom propaganda is mocking Obama and others who keep telling the American people not to watch Fox News. You see I view a president telling me what news outlet are approved by him to be pure PROPAGANDA on his part. Here is the irony, you have bought into Obama's propaganda message HOOK, LINE, and SINKER. You, like a dutiful brownsuit are repeating Obama's lie about Fox News and in the same breath you accuse me of spreading propaganda. Now that's funny.

Here's a tip for you. When calling someone an idiot it's best not to come across as an idiot yourself. You can avoid this by constructing a comment that showcases your intellect and wit. Humor, satire, and sarcasm are good tools to use in this endeavor.

Sadly, what you did will be interrupted by most as "Arrrgghhh!!! BlAAAAhhhhh! YOU'RE DUMB!!!"

I suspect that me giving you advice is like me teaching a baboon to read.
