State-propaganda station Fox Information criticized Donald Trump’s ongoing family-separation disaster on the southern border this week, with hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham saying that—oh, wait, sorry, Hannity and Ingraham had been really criticizing criticism of the administration’s ongoing family-separation disaster, each apparently having a match over a Massachusetts church’s nativity show that includes the toddler Jesus in a cage.
“After selling the phase with a tweet warning ‘CHRISTMAS IS UNDER SIEGE,’ Hannity cautioned viewers that ‘you most likely don’t need your youngsters to observe this’ earlier than exhibiting footage of the doll of child Jesus,” ThinkProgress reviews. St. Susanna Parish’s show additionally options the three clever males separated from the Holy Household by a fence, whereas an indication studying “Peace on Earth?” hangs overhead.
Nothing within the show is fake. The Trump administration stole youngsters from mother and father and threw them in cages, a reality verified by members of Congress. Some youngsters are nonetheless separated. The administration can also be violating the rights of asylum seekers by blocking them from presenting themselves on the border, leaving them stranded in Mexico. That’s all reality.
However, hey, it’s the job of Fox Information stooges to offer Trump a secure house by shielding him from a flood of actually dangerous (for him) Mueller-related information, and if they will throw in an outdated Fox Information basic, like the standard “Warfare on Christmas,” it’s a two-for-one. After all, there’s no outrage for the detained migrant youngsters who really should spend the vacations in a jail camp within the Texas desert. Merry Christmas.
“We thought we might form of put a mirror picture of what it will seem like if this occurred 2,000 years in the past,” mentioned Father Stephen Josoma of St. Susanna Parish. “It’s form of a mirror picture of the place we’re at right this moment.” Earlier than the Fox phase aired, the church had already mentioned that criticism wouldn’t induce them to take the show down. Right here’s hoping they proceed to face agency, as there’ll little question be harassment because of the community that airs segments like “Why is Christianity below assault in America?” Dunno; you inform us.
