Being Russian and having lived through Communism, the break up and the following mess that occured, I can tell that you have no idea what communism is.
You can't blame communism for the mass murders. It is an ideal and it never condones such acts of violence. It's like saying capitalism is bad because of Hitler.

And why even go there, the topic is about Fox manipulating videos, just keep the argument polite and constructive, no need for obnoxious name calling.


First of all I didn't name call anyone, I responded in kind to one of the members that was making ad hominem attacks at me.

Second of all, what in the world does Capitalism have to do with Hitler?

This tells us very well how much you know about these systems.

Hitler was a National SOCIALIST, he hated Capitalism, went after Capitalists too, and like many other Socialists he only liked his own vision of Socialism, so he went after anyone who had any other vision for Socialism to exist, including Communists, just like Stalin and Lenin couldn't agree on what form of Communism should exist in Russia.

How old are you?

Seriously, you want to make us believe you know what Communism is, and you don't even know the differecen between Capitalism and National Socialism?

And yes COMMUNISM was the reason why Lenin, Stalin, Castro, and many other Communists murdered millions of people, because they wanted for everyone to bow down to Communism, and for no other economic, or political party to exist.

If you are really Russian, either you are too young, or you don't know the history of your own country.

Communism doesn't allow for individualism, so it starts murdering people from the beginning even before any blood is shed.

I was born in Cuba, I was raised there, and still have family there so I know very well, obviously better than you, what Communism is.

It's kind of like the story of the New England Patriots being caught spying on another team to learn their plays, I'm betting all the teams do it, just one got caught and a frenzy appeared. Does it mean no one else ever did it? NO it just means as of yet, or because of a bias, they have not been caught.


So... your argument is that if one person does it then everyone else of that type does/has done it?

So... since I know that a black guy killed somebody it means every other black guy has committed murder, but they just haven't been caught yet?

Or... because some Muslims are terrorists it means ALL Muslims are terrorists and they just haven't been caught in the act yet?

Sounds like some major stereotype action going on here. You can't assume just because the Pat's cheat doesn't mean you can just assume all the other teams do it just as you can't assume that every other Muslim is a terrorist against the US.

I really don't want to resort to name calling, and this is NO WAY what this post started out as... but your thought process behind this sounds a LOT like what they're doing with the people at Guantanamo.

Now... let me go call 911 and tell them that the guy next to me is a murderer... because after all, if Charlie Manson was white and he killed somebody, it MUST mean the white guy next door must have killed someone too! OH CRAP... I'M WHITE!! THAT MEANS I'VE KILLED SOMEBODY!

A phrase I hear a LOT on FOX news and many FOX shows, when describing a person they want you in favor of: "He/she was an honest, church-going person."

It's no wonder so many FOX watchers have no idea why, but they feel the incredible urge to join a church. It's implanted into them that they need further brainwashing a.k.a join a church. Insanity.

I've actually never heard that on Fox News, and I watch Fox News quite often. I also feel no desire to join a church. Maybe I'm just different from these scads of people you know that want to?

..........


See, this is the reason why people make a beach out of a speck of sand.

First of all The Huff has made similar claims in the past, and the Huff is a LEFTIST news source which obviously can't find any good articles hence make claims up...

Second of all, did you even try to check if you could get the original videos from Fox News to see how long they were running those videos in comparison to what The Huff claims?.

Third of all, if you look at the videos they give THE HUFF CROPPED FOX VIDEOS....watch them again, and tell me The Huff didn't crop Fox Videos...

Fourth of all, are you going to tell us that news source give always the entire speech made by people, or do they give only specific statements?...

I will concede that it was an overly general statement, it does not however change the fact that for every action one news organization makes, the others are doing the same thing. When W. was in office everyone was accusing CNBC and CNN of Bias and Edits, now it's the other way around, it's a fact of life.

Mass Media is based upon the LCD, Lowest Common Denominator, and unfortuantely that is what they program for, brainless people who will go out and buy the products advertized in the breaks.

Sad reality, yes, but reality nonetheless.

I'm not trying to defend any of the places, here. Yes, every news source is going to be biased in it's own way. The Huff is clearly going to attack Fox News (or anyone with different political views other than their own) the same way that Fox News is going to attack anyone that doesn't agree with them. I in NO WAY support Fox News, me and my friends make fun of it all the time. I also don't support places like The Huff because of how dumb they are.

Yea, ok, I know what you're saying... my point was just that your statement was pretty bad in that it was essentially "if one person does if it MUST mean everyone does", but since you said it wasn't mean to read that way (I think) I'll go with it.

And yes, every newspaper/news channel does this, I'm not arguing that, and I agree with you on that. It's just I HAD to challenge your general assumption because it was extremely wrong.

LOL

That has to be a joke right?

So basically what you are saying is that FOX news is working with the Christian leaders so that they can get church attendance up.

It's that or they want us to form and make a church dedicated to the wearing of certain sized shoes... (No I will not drop this running thing until an answer is given)

how'd my name get brought into this religious garble.

the issue is media outlets rubbishing the actual facts to support their own agenda's.
leftist or rightist, uppist or downist, i don't give a hoot!
although, it's fun to watch people like 'electric universe' make a beach out of a grain of sand.

That's funny because it was actualy you who posted this article, and what evidence do you have to support it? the claims from a leftist website.

You are playing right into their politics game, and now you are getting upset because other members and myself have pointed this out...

that is so crazy. your the one so lefty righty its now beyond amusement.
i posted the article because it was something worth looking at.
what exactly are you defending?

you replied here for one reason. because i baited you....

...............and you took it, hook, line and sinker.

the fact remains that media outlets, up, down, left and right are full of misleading garble. whether they are from the left, fired to the right or vice versa.

you just eat it up. hook, line and sinker.

BS, you didn't make anything clear that you believe all news sources have their bias. You just posted this with all of the conservative bashing, and the left trying to control what news sources people can listen to. If anyone got baited it was you.

Something worth looking up? the claims from a leftist website once again bashing a conservative news source? and I didn't see you try to find if anything of what they said was true. Did you try to find the original video from Fox News? no, you accepted the claims of the Huff without any other evidence but the claims of the Huff.

We have been seeing now more than ever the left trying to control news sources, even to shut down conservative radio hosts, and claiming they should know what news sources people should listen to, and which one they shouldn't. You were just caught playing into their game, and now you want to mirror your guilt on someone else.

You didn't catch me at anything, more so when I did say in my statements that ALL news media are biased because they all have their own political views.

Am I defending something, of course I am, I am defending the right of people to choose what they want to read, what they want to listen to, instead of a group of people because of their political leaning trying to shut down, and make up claims about conservative news sources.

Thanks for showing us your cynical and snobbish sides. It's really appreciated.

A person as smart as yourself should have figured out that I meant it figuratively, instead of feigning ignorance.
