‘Race War’ At Fox News

Fox News is nothing but a mouthpiece for White hate

 

AFRICANGLOBE – In 2013, race still mattered – especially at Fox News. According to MediaMatters, the watchdog group, last year was a banner period for race-baiting at Fox.

“Viewers who spent 2013 absorbed in Fox News might be under the impression that an all-out race war has erupted across the nation this year, thanks to the network’s coverage of everything from voter fraud to Santa Claus echoing one common theme: White folks are being victimized in Obama’s America,” an analysis of coverage on the network concluded.

The review showed that Fox, the nation’s top-rated cable network with 1.76 million daily viewers, routinely exploited racial fears to boost its ratings.

“Fox became obsessed with Black crime rates in the summer of 2013, when Florida vigilante George Zimmerman went on trial for the 2012 murder of Black teenager Trayvon Martin, whom Zimmerman shot and killed while he was walking home from a convenience store. Zimmerman, identified as White Hispanic, alleged that he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense, and was not subsequently arrested or charged with any crime until a significant public outcry made the story national news,” MediaMatters noted.

“Fox immediately began running defense for Zimmerman in what became a red meat story for the network – an opportunity to justify right-wing gun culture and stand your ground laws, stoke fears about the dangers of Black youth, and paint White-on-Black crime as exceedingly rare and usually justified while Black crime is exploding.”

When Fox wasn’t fear mongering about Black crime, the report stated, it was supporting voter ID laws that suppress the Black vote.

“2013 marked a unique year with regard to free and fair elections in the United States. In June, the conservative bloc of the U.S. Supreme Court disregarded history, legal precedent, and congressional intent in a 5-4 Shelby County decision that gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA). Weeks later, thousands of Americans gathered with civil rights leaders in the nation’s capital to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington – a 1963 march that featured Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I have a dream” speech and helped lead to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and aforementioned VRA,” the analysis recounted.

“The summer’s Shelby County decision paved the way for Republican-controlled state legislatures to continue pushing through voter ID laws, a movement purporting to fight voter fraud that in fact disenfranchises Democratic voting blocs, particularly Black Americans, by imposing stringent prerequisites to vote that many older and Black voters cannot easily meet. Previously, such measures – in states with a history of disenfranchising Blacks – required approval from the Justice Department before being implemented.”

The report noted that the Voting Rights Act’s preclearance provision had been invoked more than 700 times between 1982 and 2006 to prevent racially discriminatory voting proposals to go into effect.

“Perhaps the one story that best encapsulates the way Fox News goes out of its way to paint a distorted image of the crossroads of race and crime in America, it’s the network’s coverage of the so-called ‘knockout game,’” the report explained. “Fox described the knockout game as a violent and spreading trend primarily involving Black youths assaulting unsuspecting and primarily White victims on the street for recreation. The network has run numerous segments on the alleged craze, and Fox’s Greta Van Susteren has dedicated a recurring segment to the phenomenon.

“The primary take-away for viewers: Be afraid of young, Black men and women, and don’t let yourself be an unsuspecting victim – Black people could assault you at any time for no reason other than the fact that you’re White.”

In fact, as the report states, “A New York Times piece on the knockout game cited police officials in several cities where attacks have been reported who concluded that the game ‘amounted to little more than an urban myth, and that the attacks in question might be nothing more than the sort of random assaults that have always occurred.’”

If they show it enough times, people will begin to believe it.

 

If they only show Black people doing it, non-Black people will begin to believe that is what Black people do and/or that only Black people do this.

 

If they only show or only primarily show Black people doing this, it will work as Self-Fulfilling Prophecy Psychology on young, immature and/or ignorant or weak-minded Black people.

 

If they only show or only primarily show Black people doing this, it will work as Self-Fulfilling Prophecy Psychology/Propaganda in the minds of Whites that it is not something White people do.

It is indeed propaganda. This is the exact same tactic that was used during Nazi Germany. It set the stage for the Jewish Holocaust. Demonize a group of people often enough and the majority will have no problem with them being systematically slaughtered.
