Forget FOX's feud with Trump, which is interesting in itself.

But this comment tonight by Murdoch is kind of a bombshell in that it very publicly refers to all of the veiled concerns of many of FOX's core viewers and also many conspiracy theorists. It calls into question Obama's authenticity as black, American, etc. You know the narrative, you've probably read it a million times in crazy email forwards from your drunk uncle.

Is this just a double down in FOX's efforts against Trump, using Trump's own tactics? Or does Murdoch really buy this retreaded argument?

And will it work? Or will it just further alienate FOX viewers who tend to support Trump? Will it have any impact on Carson at all? Will FOX tank them both? As of August 23 he was pushing for Michael Bloomberg to jump in the race. Maybe it's just time for this old crocodile to retire and quit mucking in U.S. politics?

Side note - It's FOX News's 19 anniversary on air today. So....maybe just publicity stunt? How are their ratings post GOP debate debacle? :monkey:

ETA: The twitter response is hilarious.

Not a real president, but a real black president...

Like white presidents can't bridge the gap...



Old prick should be dead soon anyways and we can all celebrate and be merry.

I agree Murdoch is scum always has been always will be.
To be fair he should have done time for what his staff got away with and he knew about it all.
I don't celebrate peoples death but I will make an exception for this scumbag.

Yeah celebrate may be the wrong terminology, that's very heartless of me.


Thanks BM, always there to put me on he straight and narrow.

Lol he's not wrong though. Carson didn't grow up with any kind of wealth etc, and worked his way to where he is now. Obama would probably say "You didn't build that Carson."

Obama didn't grow up with any kind of wealth either. All the good schools he went to he earned scholarships to go to them.

I think he is saying pretty much what everone already knows is true.

Obama is only 50% black. He disavowed his white mother so he wouldn't feel beholden to whites. (That is a quote from his book).
He pretends to care for the black community when making campaign promises to help them get out of an impoverished state. Then doesn't ever actually do anything to help when elected, since he already got the votes, and everything he did later actually hurt the black community since they are now even far more impoverished.
His Black father was never really a father to him so he unconsciously blames that on blacks and hurts them with his policies and fake programs for votes.
Obama kills children with drones, and hates vets who have served dutifully. Forces them to be unarmed when he visits the troops, feels guilty for what he has done which tells why he is afraid of them, by how he treats them.
Did I leave anyone out?
Oh yes, Christians, he sure does hate them too. Pretends to like Muslims for potential voting power, but bombs their families overseas.
Hates America and strips our rights away. Supports Sharia Law loving terrorists and tries to make deals with our Sharia law enemies..
The list keeps going, but there is a character limit on posts so I'll stop here.

Bottom line is a real president who has real roots and ties and bonds to America has nothing in common with Obama. He hates everyone equally.

So this Twitter post pretty much sums up in a few words what I have mentioned.

how many in this thread believe 9-11 was an inside job? if raised your hand, you might want to stop and consider before calling others "conspiracy theorists" as if not believing officials stories is some kind of wart growing on the person's nose

Is that right? For some reason I thought his grandparents were wealthy or something, either way you can't really scoff at someone who's made it even half as far. I don't think it really matters either way honestly, it seems unfair to judge someone for being born well off just the same as judging someone for growing up poor.

Is he saying this because Obama is half white, or was he actually alluding to the differences in the way the two grew up? I clearly don't know much about the way Obama grew up, but have been under the impression he wasn't exactly going through the same things many black people do in the US. I mean sure a middle class black kid is going to have some troubles, but I don't think it would be nearly the same as a black kid growing up in some terrible neighborhood, who really got the short end of the stick dealing with institutionalized racism and whatnot. If that's what was being said, I think it was a bad idea, but don't entirely disagree.

Twitter seems like a pretty terrible platform for voicing opinions, really most mediums of communication without face to face contact lose something.

Personally I think he is calling Barack Obama an Uncle Tom. If I am correct could anyone blame him?

Obama is certainly is no MLK, Huey P. Newton or Malcolm X. All of those men were true black leaders.

I don't think he believes anything he says, he figured out the simplicity of certain thinking and has executed, brilliantly (however evil), how best to make money off it.

He didn't disavow his mother or his whiteness, he went through a phase that many biracial (black and white) kids go through because they still experience racism, that 50% whiteness doesn't make them suddenly acceptable to racists.

I read Murdoch's comments and roared with laughter. He will stoop to anything, even something sensational for money won't he?

However, he opened debate up on a man who disavows his mother - unless she was plain evil to him in some way will always have mental issues because nurturing is the pillar on which one grows up.

Sure many men with ghastly mothers do reflect the mother's problems onto their wives so punish them instead and there are a lot of these men about. Some get over it and seem to just have some inner wisdom about how to treat other people.

But a man who makes excuses for half his own heritage and ignores it totally is a fool and Obama has demonstrated that on numerous occasions as well has putting his own enjoyment above matters of State which he appears to abandon when a good card game or golf are in the offing, despite the emergency needing attention is just a puppet which TPTB simply put into office.

Currently we have two world leaders him and Oinky who are for me the smug versions of Bush and Blair its about time we had people of a much higher calibre in office.

How about just electing a president for his ability rather than race or gender?

Oh! don't be silly that would be too clever for the electorate to appreciate - (now runs for cover laughing).

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
I think you are being a bit hard on Obama. He is owned, and it must be terrible for him having to watch his back all the times because there are a lot of groups who would love to take him out.
Presidents are not 'all powerful' beings. They are human.those who pull their strings, the likes of Henry Kissinger and others, including Rupert Murdoch, are not. It doesn't matter who the president is, they will always be answerable to this higher power.

Take a number
I'm still waiting for Kissinger and Brezhinski to drop off first.
