Van Jones Resignation: Boycott Fox News Advertisers Now!

Van Jones Resignation: Boycott Fox News Advertisers Now!

That’s it.  It’s time to take back our country from the pundits on Fox News who do nothing all day but spout bigotry and hate.  They have no scruples, they have no ethics. That’s enough.  It’s time to end the hate speech on Fox News if not force them off the air altogether. Take action today!

Sign the petition to boycott Fox News advertisers!

Bigots like Hannity and Beck deserve no place in our public discourse.  It’s up to use to stop them and the way to do that is to make it financially impossible for Fox News to continue airing their shows. 

Sign the petition to boycott Fox News advertisers!

No more excuses!  Fox News advertisers must be inundated with letters from Americans who will no longer buy their products.  Tell them you will no longer support those who finance bigotry and hate by advertising on Fox News.

Huh?

There is a lot more support for President Obama than Fox News or any other dysinformation source lets on. He will author many good things for our nation if the Hate Machine does not succeed in destroying him as it did the Kennedy's and Martin Luther King. We should rejoice that an intelligent, articulate, young-at-heart scholar from a down trodden and mistreated race should have this opportunity to affect our sorry record in Truth and Justice over the past decades. The so called "conservatives" who think that "liberal" is an insult really disturb me. They are those same foolish child-like persons who admired "Dubya" because it was presented that he prayed on his knees each night. I hope he prayed for forgiveness for the young people he sent to die in a liar's war. Now we have a president who strives for honesty, who studies the world and its issues, who knows and respects the Constitution and the law. Why are the ignorant so vocal and so powerful in this nation? It is the nature of a democracy that if the uneducated and hate-filled people become the vocal majority, we have phenomena like the Bush years to give us pain and grief. When will we set that right? When will we show that our laws do not tolerate CEO matierial and friends of Big Profit basing their legacies on lies and covetousness? Shame on SMU for hosting the George W. Bush Presidential Library. What a sad joke.

For those of you who keep calling the President a Communist or a Socialist, here are the definitions of those 2 terms. You can look them up for yourself at http://www.dictionary.com.

communism: "a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state."

socialism: "a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole."

Did you know that the first Christian Church was communist? Read Acts 2:44-45
"44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need."

That's some pretty awful stuff, isn't it? We should all strive to be like those people were.

Most are mean spirited on fox news. That Hannity guy is a ray of sunshine and so Christ-like. He treats some of the hosts on his show badly- he's rude, condescending, disrespectful, and arrogant- far from the type of person Jesus was. I almost forgot to mention- they are all ugly to the bone. Did you ever notice how the mean spirit and ugly attitude seep out of some people and manifests itself on the outside in the form of a physical appearance? Hannity, O' Rielly, Limbahblahblah, etc.. are just plain creepy. Worst of all, they all have venomous tongues and dark hearts. They spread poison and fear into other dark hearted fools. The other day at the zoo I was wearing an Obama t-shirt and a weird looking kid walked up to me and said, "Obama shoots old people!". I wasn't really all that surprised. I asked him why his parents let him talk to total strangers and told him to go over to his parents, who weren't watching him. They were oblivious zombies.

I don't buy any of that stuff they advertise during Fox news anyway- I was already boycotting their worthless crap. It's all worthless garbage from worthless companies trying to tell us what we want and what we need. Talk about brain washing. People become less attached to the Earth and nature and become zombies w/ all their worthless junk. They will lose their souls to gain the world. Materialism is something all good prophets and shepherds were against. I'm happy to be liberal and free.

To amend my last post, about the massive tax increases, has Barack Obama raised your taxes? If so, you must be very rich because it's only the rich whose taxes will be increased. President Obama is cutting my taxes, and I suspect yours as well, so what are your conservative friends and family REALLY objecting to?

1:54PM PDT on Sep 12, 2009

"Not one of my conservative family members or friends, or anyone in this community complain about Pres Obama being half black. What they complain about is government spending, massive expansion of government, massive tax increases, and the take over of numerous private sector businesses."

Our president has bailed out a number of businesses to prevent the financial collapse of our country, it has not taken over any businesses and has no plans to do so. All the other things you mentioned in the above quote were done in spades by none other that George W. Bush. Where were your conservative family members and friends when that was going on? Where were the "tea parties"? It was just fine when Bush did it, but now that a Democrat does it, WAAAAAHHHH!!!

"It is surprising to me to find that hate and distortion is coming from the people who perceive themselves to be all-knowing and want to tell the rest of us what to do.
You can't know what is going on in your world if you put your head in the sand and ignore what you don't like.
I believe in the Constitution of the United States and in the country that our founding fathers created."

We say all the same things about people like you, Julia. Considering though, how Bush did the Texas two step on our constitution, I'm surprised you would mention it.

What our president proposed on Wednesday is almost exactly what YOU said we needed a few posts ago, but you don't hear that because you're so full of blind hatred for no reason other than you believe what you hear on Fox News. There is NO LEGITIMATE REASON that you think these things about our president, you and all the others calling him a communist and a Muslim do so because you have no legitimate gripes against him, so you spout that garbage. The popularity of these false labels laid upon our president is unprecedented in U.S. political history, so one must wonder, what is so different about this president that would cause all the name calling? You might claim it's not racism, but those of us watching it happen see that there is no better explanation.
