So, another white supremacist home-grown terrorist kills a bunch of immigrants with an A-15 style rifle? Is anyone surprised? Thanks Dotard!

Maybe there's something in the water.

I don't think it is the water.

But there is definitely something that is causing the growth of this home-grown terrorism.

What is radicalizing these people?

Could this have anything to do with it?

Op-Ed: Fox News Thinks Tucker Carlson Is Still Good for Business.
Threats of an ad boycott over popular host's appeals to bigotry haven't turned the Murdochs against him.
www.bloomberg.com

...Jonathan Greenblatt, the chief executive officer of the Anti-Defamation League, asked advertisers gathered Tuesday for Global Marketer Week to press Fox Corp. to fire its resident flamethrower and ratings-magnet, Tucker Carlson.

Carlson has been trafficking in white supremacist myths recently on Fox News and his broadcasts, Greenblatt said, offer an "example of how hatred is being mainstreamed in America in 2021." He recommended that advertisers rein in spending on Carlson's show. "You can hold them accountable like few other actors in society because your dollars are the fuel that enables their business model."

There is a long tradition of companies using ad budgets to strong-arm reporters, commentators and their publishers into avoiding unfavorable coverage, so invoking the power of the purse to stymie inquiries and conversations is thorny. In this particular instance, though, it's helpful to remember who Carlson is and what he's up to. He's certainly not a reporter, and he's not a commentator in any classic sense. He's a deft propagandist and performance artist who steeps himself and his audience in bigotry, racism and "cancel culture" antics to keep the world at bay....

Four words "DONALD TRUMP" and "FOX NEWS." Maybe these domestic terrorists were already racist POS which drew them to Dotard as a kindred spirit, but he granted them permission to let their freak flags fly, as one of the White Nationalist groups was proud to announce, Trump was ONE OF THEM. Fox was only too happy to amplify Dotard's hateful message, and now their most-watched nighttime host, TucKKKer, has gone full-blown white supremacist, down to spouting and defending "replacement theory." Laura Hammerskingraham is not far behind. They have these racist Incels spun up with the Big Lie, pissed off that their cult leader is no longer POTUS thanks to the overwhelming turnout of minority voters. The lines between the fat orange traitor, Faux Spews, and all this White Supremacist carnage are easy to see.
