You really have to hand it to Fox News. We complain and gripe about and mock CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the rest of the lamestream media constantly. Which they deserve. And because we only watch Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro on Fox News, we tend to forget that most of the Fox “reporters” are backstabbing, open borders, anti-American, Soros-boot-licking globalists.
So, thanks for reminding us of that once again, Fox! We’re positive that Nancy Pelosi and Obama will start loving you any day now, as they do with all of you Beltway cocktail party fake “conservatives” who try to make liberals respect them in the morning.
The polls closed on the East Coast at 7 p.m. on election night. At 7:15, the two girliest girls on Fox News – Bret Baier and Brit Hume – began talking down the results with their obligatory, oh-so-innocent, “Well golly, what went wrong? How did Republicans blow this so badly?” panel.
Keep in mind that only 11,000 votes in Virginia had been counted at that point, and even Fox News was showing that Republicans had won four House seats to the Democrats’ two. None of the liberal media outlets that we complain about constantly did anything that brazen on election night.
Don’t get us wrong, Fox News “journalists.” We’re not asking you to give up your seething hatred of Donald Trump, America or the Constitution. Knock yourselves out. Pop open another Zima with Bill Kristol, pat yourselves on the back and pretend that you are the True Conservatives™ in charge of all genuine conservatism while hating everyday Americans. We don’t care about that, so long as you keep Tucker, Sean and Jeanine on air.
But is it too much to ask that you wait until the other 75% of the country has had a chance to finish voting before you announce the final results? Nothing screams “Just stay home and don’t bother voting” to the other 100 million voters like telling Republicans that it’s all over while there are still several hours left to make a difference.
Then again, “fair and balanced” Fox newshounds, you wouldn’t be able to get your Voter Suppression badge from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation if you gave Republican candidates a fighting chance in the elections.
To give you just a small idea of how furious we are right now, it’s 11:30 p.m. as we’re typing this. The Democrats have “won” the House, as of this moment, showing the bare minimum 219 seats. Republican Congressman Steve Russell lost his House seat by only 3,288 votes – in a Republican district with upwards of 300,000 voters. Russell won the same seat in 2016 by a margin of almost 60,000 votes.
How many GOP voters gave up and went home without casting a vote in Oklahoma City because of Bret Baier and Brit Hume’s little stunt?
In Iowa, Republican Congressman David Young lost his seat by 5,230 votes – three hours after Baier-Hume’s “Operation Speaker Pelosi” hit the airwaves. Incumbent Republican Congressman Randy Hultgren of Illinois lost his seat by a margin of less than 7,000 votes. Rep. Mike Coffman lost his seat in Colorado. Republicans also lost an open red seat in Arizona.
All of these losses happened well after Bret Baier and Brit Hume told the nation that the race was all over, and the Democrats had carried out their blue wave rebuke of that icky Trump and his toothless, retarded, mouth-breathing supporters in flyover Nazi hick country. Some of them may still have lost their races, but they definitely lost votes because of Fox News.
Right now, it’s been almost 5 hours since the Baier-Hume sabotage, and if Republicans had held onto those seats, the House would still be an undecided toss-up… which would still be better than ever having to type the words “Speaker Nancy Pelosi” again.
How does Fox News’ stunt not qualify as election meddling and voter suppression? Paging Jeff Sessions!
Another infuriating low point of the 2018 election night: Ted Cruz nearly lost his seat in the Senate. Are you paying attention yet, Republican candidates?
For anyone who hasn’t figured out why immigration is such a big issue to the American people, one of the most popular Republican Senators in the nation nearly lost his seat to a vapid, convicted drunk-driving Democrat with ZERO legislative accomplishments in Congress. In Texas! There is absolutely no reason for that race to have been so close. The only reason it was that close was because Texan voters have been replaced with foreign immigrant voters – legal and illegal – who love socialist Democrats. After all, those the only varieties of candidates they have in their home countries.
If President Trump doesn’t build the wall and build it now – with or without the help of Congress – we’re going to lose our country. Imagine any Republican candidate being able to win the White House without those Texas electoral votes. Not gonna happen. (Side Note: Hooray for Florida! You guys are still part of America!)
P.S. Thanks again, Fox News.
