    If there was a LW Faux News, they would have a conspiracy already about how the cops in Minneapolis were instructed to act by Trump to take the focus off of Covid.

    American Greatness, one of those right-wing websites that loves to portray itself as the voice of intellectual conservatism, has an article out this morning about how Fox is turning into a liberal mainstream news network, and of how Trump supporters who hate disloyalty to Dear Leader may turn on it - "Fox News isn’t invincible. Tolerance for betrayal, especially among Trump supporters, doesn’t last long." This article is a doozy, so I beg leave to provide a few choice quotes:

    "With the exception of its primetime lineup and a few regular contributors, Fox News increasingly is indistinguishable from its cable news competitors. The network, once considered the sole antidote to dominant left-wing news organizations—both print and broadcast—is making a fatal brand mistake: Alienating its customer base. For nearly 25 years, conservatives have depended on Fox News to report the news in a way that represents their views. Conservatives knew issues, like those surrounding the pro-life movement, could count on fair coverage from the network rather than the scorn and derision they get in mainstream media."

    "Even recently, Fox News was the only outlet pursuing the biggest scandal in U.S. political history—how Barack Obama used his government henchmen to infiltrate the Trump campaign and then sabotage his presidency after the election." (sailor would love that line)

    "Once-trusted anchors now are openly hostile to President Trump. In a dramatic repudiation of Trump’s comment that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine, Neil Cavuto ranted that the drug is deadly and not effective...No one on the network raises the hackles of Trump’s base more than Chris Wallace (well, at least since Trump got Shep Smith fired)...his palpable animus toward the president, his advisors, and by extension, Trump’s supporters, is sullying Wallace’s reputation as an objective journalist; his on-air demeanor is more akin to Rachel Maddow’s, as he acts the part of the shrill antagonist."

    "Wallace clearly has taken sides with the anti-Trump news media, Democrats, and NeverTrumpers as the 2020 election approaches. This week, Wallace disputed Trump’s concerns over absentee voting, claiming there’s “no history” of voter fraud by mail-in voting. But his bosses at Fox News, for whatever reason, are allowing Wallace to go rogue. Wallace’s partisan preferences coupled with his petulant Chuck Todd-level tirades against Republican lawmakers and officials can only, and should only, be viewed as a slap in the face to the network’s loyal audience."

    As this article makes crystal clear, Trumpites view any criticism of Trump as "liberal/far left/anti-Trump", and their idea of "objective" journalism is that which constantly kisses Trump's butt. This article is complaining that Fox has gone liberal because it isn't sucking up to Trump and his supporters enough to suit them anymore. If Trump loses in November, I wonder how long it will take for the Trump News Network to make its appearance.

    “For nearly 25 years, conservatives have depended on Fox News to report the news in a way that represents their views.”

    Just coming out and stating they’re brainwashing without a hint of subtlety. Yet another instance of saying the quiet parts out loud.

    It's a superhero/comicbook character that's been adopted by the Blue Lives Matter crowd.

    Racists love co-opting existing, previously innocent, symbols to signal their views to others in their circles.

    They think it's nuanced. They think it makes it more socially acceptable.

    Punisher is a violent vigilante, so it's not a particularly innocent symbol coming from police.

    Marvel directly addressed this in the comic.

    There were some Batman panels a few years ago of Batman fucking up cops who were about to shoot a black kid.
