Fvx's Megyn Kelly Accuses Nancy Pelosi of Sexism Re Hobby Lobby

Are you kidding me? Megyn Kelly has less credibility to talk about sexism than Sean Hannity has, although she used to have slightly more than Ann Coulter.

Not after this banner month over at Fvx Nation.

Hobby Lobby Affected us all in different ways. For those of us who arrived on the planet standard with a uterus, we were for the most part displeased with a SCROTUS who decided to insert one more public bit of scrutiny way too close to our imperiled lady parts.

Then there were the kooks who celebrated the decision as a herald to the return to an America they had feared they lost, one where women have such an absurd rigaramarole set in front of them to obtain birth control that it becomes an impediment to health and family planning.

They are currently doing a Holly Hobby Hobby Lobby Regressive Porn flick to celebrate … Rick Santorum made it happen. Gag. Not kidding. Here's a blurb from Raw Story to catch the Ick from firsthand.

… the documentary — called One Generation Away: The Erosion of Religious Liberty — on Sept. 1.

A trailer for the movie points to the Hobby Lobby case that the Supreme Court decided on Monday as proof that the government is trying to destroy religious freedom. Filmmakers compare the situation to Nazi Germany, when Christians in Germany did not “wake up.”

Megyn Kelly must be one of the producers. She set herself up at Fvx Noise as the arbiter of all things female after 9 p.m. (before Hannity comes on to bring the testosterone back to Fox standards), and wasted no time in blaming the woman clearly at the heart of the controversy.

Nancy Pelosi? All right, Megyn, have your absurd 'say'.

Yes, the First Female Speaker of the House in these United States, normally considered a fierce proponent for fellow dames, is secretly sexist and bent on destroying womanhood as you know it, Megyn Kelly.

Who can even begin to address the Wrong therein?

Hannity and Fvx Nation Declare Obama Feckless and Floundering

What's wrong with this picture? Besides Olly North being an expert on anything at all ...

... they've staked out Air Force One at Andrews  AFB on Hannity so that everyone from Megyn Kelly to Ronald Reagan have reacted more strongly to the ongoing crises than has President Barack Obama.

Who if he has any sense went out the hatch half an hour ago ...
foxtwo
While the rest of the world was trying to figure out what has happened on the ground in the Ukraine, Fvx Nation was busily fixating blame on the famously feckless President Barack Obama by suppertime. By Hannity Hour, the blood was clearly cast upon the waters.

Something has to be said for a 'news anchor' that keeps a split screen fixed on the door of Air Force One because President Obama had kept his day's schedule on track and attended previously scheduled Dem fundraisers in NYC last night, then hopped home to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue by Jon Stewart hour. Despite breaking news banners from a couple of war zones and Oliver North in the lineup.

Hate to give you Fvx,  but it's a 'you have to see it' situation.

By Fvx and Friends Morning, the Curvy Couch of Ick, Elizabeth Hasselbeck roared back from vacation - unlike President Obama, and was there to hammer him with her cohorts. Who went straight to Saint Reagan in no time flat ... just audio Ick this time.

Of course Ron Ron had the solution ... it was his Cold War, after all.

The Curvy Couch of Ick carried on to compare (with an Expert On Hand, natch) President Obama's lack of leadership last night to Bush's exceptional and Presidential response to 9-11.

Friday News... and Randy Newman too

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

This was a surreal week. It was the week in which Glenn Beck admitted that we were right!

This was the week that saw Fox's Shepard Smith speak the truth about Iraq instead of simply repeating the neocons talking points.

It was the week in which right wing shill and apologist Mark Halperin called out Paul Bremmer for being the war monger that he is.

It was the week that saw Faux News Channel's Megyn Kelly emerge as the one who took on Dick Cheney!

Speaking of Dick and his evil spawn, Tina Dupuy wrote a great column explaining the big favor these two idiots are doing for the rest of us in being so public about their idiocy in a piece called "Bring us More Dick Cheney and Liz" and joined me on the show this morning to discuss it.

Are we, perhaps, emerging from Opposite World? I guess not, if Dick Cheney, Paul Bremmer, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleeza Rice, W and the other architects of our decade plus of war are still walking free and are given air time to spread their lies.

Yesterday was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day for three governors - two Republican/one Democrat, two sitting/one former - all of whom have presidential aspirations that none of them will realize. Rachel Maddow did a great job of succinctly wrapping it all up in one neat little package for Scott Walker, Chris Christie, and Brian Schweitzer.

To wrap up each week, I conclude each Friday show with a trip into the past, digging into my old radio archives for a musical moment. Today, we went back to May 25, 1999 to the now-defunct Channel 103.1 in Los Angeles, when Randy Newman joined us in "Studio C" for an interview and performance.

A few notes... If you're a regular listener of this program and you are a small business owner, pay attention. I'm hoping to put together a page of blue-friendly businesses in an affiliate-type program. We'll promote your business in return for a commission on any sales that come through the site. If you're interested in discussing the possibilities, send me a note, and we'll talk!!

Also ... I ordered some new show swag! So, to help us raise funds necessary to survive, I have a new offer. Make a donation of $10 or more to Radio or Not any time in the next week, and I'll send you one of our handy dandy cell phone pocket wallets like the one pictured below. Note, the real ones look better and, sorry, phone not included!

RoN phone pocket

And with that, we put another week into the archives... I'll be back Monday to kick off another action-packed week, radio or not!

Dreaming Of A Black Christmas

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Christmas

Well, we survived the War on Christmas, this year, and hopefully, thanks to people like Congressman Doug Lamborn, Representative Candice Miller and others like Bill O'Reilly and Megyn Kelly, the battle will be easier next year.

From The Hill:

Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) on Tuesday vowed to protect Christmas against what he called a “vocal minority” offended by its symbols and traditions.

“There is a vocal minority that is offended at the rest of us who want to celebrate Christmas,” he said Tuesday on “Fox and Friends.” “Just because someone is offended doesn't mean that they can shut down the religious celebration or acknowledgment of every other American.”

He's got a good point. We shouldn't let Christmas be compromised. It's written in stone, book and in movies. We all know the symbols of Yuletide by the time we reach age five. There's Christmas trees, Santa Claus, Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, oh, and electrical light icicles outlining the outside of our houses. It wouldn't be a real Christmas without them.

Two of the most important figures are that of Jesus and Santa. Both white if you listen to Megyn Kelly on Fox News.

Black Santa

Fox News host Megyn Kelly drew strong criticism recently for declaring on air that Santa and Jesus Christ are white. She was reacting to an article by Slate called, “Santa Claus Should Not be a White Man Anymore.”

“When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it's racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,” Kelly said on Fox News.

First, from strictly an anthropological study, Jesus was not your traditional white man -- he would have features more natural to the region and parents he was born to.  He was born a Jew and looked like the rest of the Middle Eastern looking Jews of the time. According to Biblical History Daily:

The influences of the artists' cultures and traditions can be profound, observes Carlos F. Cardoza-Orlandi, associate professor of world Christianity at Columbia Theological Seminary in Atlanta. "While Western imagery is dominant, in other parts of the world he is often shown as black, Arab or Hispanic."

But let's go along with the fact that Jesus was a real man -- a God or son of God, who knows? But he was flesh and blood. So an argument can be made over his looks.

Now we come to Santa. He's fictional despite the ever foggy Megyn's protests. Perhaps he's based on a compilation of real people, but that's not known for sure. So how he looked, how he dressed and how he acted are all fiction, the product of imagination and legend -- not doctrine, treatise or tenet. Please Megyn, get this straight, there never was, is and never will be a real Santa Claus. Sorry to break the news to you at this age. Perhaps your parents neglected to explain that to you. But okay. Now you know.

Armed now with the truth, you should know that a fictional character can be interpreted many ways. Look at this list of Broadway shows, Hello Dolly, Streetcar Named Desire, Wizard of Oz (The Wiz), Death of a Salesman, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Cats, Fiddler On The Roof, and Oklahoma. You know what they have in common? They were predominantly White casted plays, with Black cast versions done as revivals. And all were successful. Broadway didn't shut down when Pearl Bailey became Dolly Levi or Blair Underwood as Stanley.

Black Hello Dolly Black Streetcare Named Desire

So chill your jets, Mr. Kelly, with your outrageous claims that a fictional character could only be one color or race. Accept that real characters have definitive images. Fictional ones like Santa have all sorts of incarnations. And Black can be one of them. Even a newsreader like you should know that. Or maybe you don't -- and that's why you're the darling of Fox News. You can say and do anything and a number of people will believe you.

I'm Miss Snark smaller

I always open my weekly radio spot on the Nicole Sandler Show at RadioOrNot.com with a little snarky humor in the form of a fake automated voice mail system. Every week I choose a topic to mock, and when Nicole Skypes me, instead of answering "Hello," I respond with, "You've reached..." followed by, "Press One for..., press Two for... etc."  Just like in real life! Only hopefully more entertaining.

Because it's gray and rainy today, because Kobe Bryant is out for another six weeks with a broken knee, and because I'm in an extra crispy crankpot mood, and because I need a break from Very Serious News Items, I thought I'd share today's Press 1, 2, 3 edition to bring a little silliness to the day.

You've reached the “I’m dreaming of a Black Christmas” support group.

Press ONE if you just know Fox News hosts will try to blunt criticism of Megyn Kelly’s recent remarks by saying, “Pfft! This whole silly kerfuffle will all just fall into the White Hole of TV history.”

Press TWO if you anticipated Megyn Kelly gleefully “jesting” about the busiest shopping day of the holiday season referring to it as "White Friday," and then crediting her favorite comedian… the Daily Show’s Lewis White.

Press THREE if you fully expect Megyn Kelly to claim that all piano keys are white, zebras have white and white stripes, that her favorite recording artists are the White-Eyed Peas, and she’ll haul off and give anyone who accuses her of racism... a white eye.

Have a happy holiday!
