FOX News Is Funding the “Ground Zero” mosque? WTF?


August 24, 2010 by billie789

Something I dropped into our blog discussions a while back is coming around, only this time, it can’t be ignored. It’s just too big and too ridiculous to ignore now. It just is what it is. It’s not something manipulated in the heat of elections or protests. It’s just a fact.

Last night, Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, skewered Fox & Friends for connecting the dots and failing to see the big picture they had just put together. They had spent a portion of their show going after Imam Rouf, the Muslim diplomat who wants to head up the community center that’s in the middle of the controversy at Ground Zero. He receives “terrorist funding,” according to them. 

Much of the money he’s raising for construction of the much-feared “Ground Zero Mosque” comes from…wait for it…Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of Rupert Murdock’s partners in News Corp, FOX News’ parent company.

How ironic is it that the FOX News, where Sean Hannity has been howling about Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf wanting “Sharia law” to replace our existing laws is the very same FOX News whose parent company, the Rupert Murdoch- controlled News Corporation, that has as its second largest shareholder, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal? It was 19  Saudis that conspired to fly planes into the Twin Towers.

There’s a fox in the henhouse and a Saudi/Sharia prince in the FOX House!

How stupid do those protesters at Ground Zero feel this morning? As Stewart showed last night, if you watch FOX News, you are contributing to their viewership numbers which bolsters their ratings and increases their advertising dollar revenues. Then, as a shareholder, the Saudi/Sharia prince takes his FOX earnings and sends them to build a mosque…the much-feared “Ground Zero Mosque.”

So, FOX News fans, you are eating your own tail. When you reach your butthole, stop chewing!

    How could they be eating their tail when their heads are stuck up their respective asses?

    Interesting stretch of the imagination by Mr. Stewart.

    Many consider Bill Clinton to be America’s first Black President because of things he did while in office. Using that very same logic, couldn’t we also now consider Pres. Obama to be our first Muslim President……. he certainly has been more than friendly to them with things like re-focusing NASA’s mission to be an outreach to Muslims around the world. So is it safe to say that by using Mr. Stewarts logic here that Pres Obama must also be a supporter of Fox……… a “closet” supporter of course. Shhhhhhhh, we surely wouldn’t want that circulating amongst his fans. ;-)

    Well, the only problem I see with that is Obama is a Christian. I’m sure you remember the right-side uproar over the Reverend Jeremiah Wright? “How could Obama sit in those pews for 20 years listening to this radical?!?!?” Perhaps because Wright said,”Goddam America!” those same people have magically concluded that he isn’t a “real” Christian preacher, I don’t know.

    Funny how short the memory can be. Now, Obama’s a godless Muslim, according to 30-40% of the right. Make up your minds.

    The Saudi/Sharia prince owning a share of the organization that just contributed $1 Million to the Republican Governor’s Association is a bit different than getting whiplash trying to create what I see as a false-equivalency toward Obama and FOX and Stewart. If you’ve seen any of Dan Senor’s bit on Fox & Friends, the dude sat right there, with the couch monkeys, and postulated that Imam Rouf is receiving funding for the mosque from terrorists. He apparently didn’t realize he was talking about one of his company’s owners.

    Koch Industries manipulating and funding the Tea Party was the other story yesterday. It’s getting interesting.

      Please re-read my post Bill. I didn’t claim he was a Muslim just as Clinton wasn’t black. My exact words were;
      “Many consider Bill Clinton to be America’s first Black President because of things he did while in office. Using that very same logic, couldn’t we also now consider Pres. Obama to be our first Muslim President”
      Do ya see that I’ve only drawn a parallel to the Clinton/Black President thing here…… no accusation. Then I added this;
      “he certainly has been more than friendly to them with things like re-focusing NASA’s mission to be an outreach to Muslims around the world.”

      I was just merely making the parallel to Mr Stewarts warped sense of reality, that’s all. ;-)

      And for what it’s worth, I don’t fit in that category that thinks Obama is a Muslim though I do believe he has shown favoritism to Islam vs Christianity since his inauguration. Gun tote’n bitter clingers anyone? And please remember Bill, I don’t really give a rat’s rip as I am neither a Muslim nor Christian. However, I must admit that it’s been fun watching Obama doin the sidestep ever more frequently of late.

        Oh, I see. It’s cool.

        I watched a few minutes of a round table discussion Sunday morning about, among other things, Obama’s new reputation as a Muslim in Right Circles. They were talking about how any president must go to a Christian church every Sunday and not just attend, but after services, walk out that front door into the daylight, and media, carrying a Bible like Bill Clinton and George Bush did.

        The fact that Obama has not done that has allowed famous Christians like Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich to paint the guy as a Muslim sympathizer and questionable Christian.

        There’s reason 30-40% of little kiddies on the right think he’s a Muslim and it’s not because he attends a mosque. It’s because there’s been a focused, Koch Industries-sponsored smear campaign of the president. The Koch Bros.’ father invented the John Birch Society to antagonize politicians and move the monopoly pieces around the board from a safe distance using useful idiots as tools. Now, his sons have bankrolled the TP minions (Freedom Works, anyone?) to drive a wedge between the haves and the have-nots and to try to subvert our democracy and lean it over toward corporate raping, pillaging and plundering. It’s about GREED, baby, not patriotism.

        Yep, greed AND the lust for power. Have you ever been mystified like I as to why folks like Rick Scott or Jeff Greene would spend tens of millions of their own money for a job that pays less than 200k? They’re simply trying to buy their ticket into the Ruling Class, more sinister than the typical greed for money. It’s a greed for power.

        I sometimes wonder which is a more corrupting factor, the lust for money or the lust for power.

    “What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith…”

    I know it was a gaff, but it’s funny none the less. I love the pause, and the look on his face after Stephanopoulos bails him out. It’s like, “Oh fuck, that will be on youtube before sundown…” LOLOL

  5. Bill says:

    But you bring up a great point, Stu, even if inadvertantly. That clip is out there because to some on the fringe right-Tea Party edge, it proves conclusively that Obama is a Muslim, dammit! Even he said. Just like Michele saying that Kenya was his home country or home something or other and the right has run that clip to death, because, dammit, it just proves that he was born in Kenya! Even Michele admits it! This is Rush Limbaugh territory.

    Both points are ridiculous and a fantastic distraction from the work at hand. What tighty-righty-whiteys don’t realize is people like me couldn’t care less where the dude was born or if he’s a closet Muslim or not. I want to judge him by the content of his work and heart, not his geographical location or religious leanings. He was born in Hawaii and is a Christian.

    Now, fix the economy!
