John Gibson's an idiot. I know this because he works for FOX News.
But if I needed more proof, I'd have to look no farther than his own words. In defending a racist commentary, he - like any FOX robot backed into a corner - lies. From his FOX webpage:
Some misunderstandings about a recent "My Word" [a commentary segment].
I've been accused of being a racist because I said something simple.
It was a couple days ago and I said, "Procreate not recreate."
It was a thought or two about demographics, about the science of looking into population trends and making predictions.
My concern was simply that I didn't want America to become Europe, where the birthrate is so low the continent is quickly being populated by immigrants — mainly from Muslim countries — whose birthrate is very high.
That fact was coupled with a news item that said half of all babies in America under five are minorities and the majority of those were Hispanic.
I said fine, but it was also a good idea if people other than Hispanics also got busy and had more babies.
Those people would include both blacks and whites. I said you can't expect Hispanics to do all the work when it comes to supplying the country with babies.
Nothing likely a slightly racist clarification of a blatantly racist piece. But what did he actually say? We can always turn to Media Matters for the transcript - not to mention the video. This is undeniable.
GIBSON: Now, it's time for "My Word." Do your duty. Make more babies. That's a lesson drawn out of two interesting stories over the last couple of days.
First, a story yesterday that half of the kids in this country under five years old are minorities. By far, the greatest number are Hispanic. You know what that means? Twenty-five years and the majority of the population is Hispanic. Why is that? Well, Hispanics are having more kids than others. Notably, the ones Hispanics call "gabachos" -- white people -- are having fewer.
Now, in this country, European ancestry people, white people, are having kids at the rate that does sustain the population. It grows a bit. That compares to Europe where the birth rate is in the negative zone. They are not having enough babies to sustain their population. Consequently, they are inviting in more and more immigrants every year to take care of things and those immigrants are having way more babies than the native population, hence Eurabia.
Why aren't they having babies? Because babies get in the way of a prosperous and comfortable modern life. Peanut butter fingerprints on the leather seats in the BMW. The Euros are particular -- in particular can't be bothered with kids. Underscore that second point.
A second story, today, reports that [Russian President] Vladimir Putin is so concerned about the declining and imploding population of Russia, he is paying couples to have babies. Imagine, procreating for cash in Mother Russia. Putin has taken this step because at the rate things are going, Russia will lose close to 45 million in population in the next 45 years. Russia will be two thirds of today's population.
This is not a good trend for Russia and it won't be here either if that should happen. To put it bluntly, we need more babies. Forget about that zero population growth stuff that my poor generation was misled on. Why is this important? Because civilizations need population to survive. So far, we are doing our part here in America but Hispanics can't carry the whole load. The rest of you, get busy. Make babies, or put another way -- a slogan for our times: "procreation not recreation." That's "My Word."
It's all put across in that goofy half-joking manner racist blockheads always use when they aren't sure how people are going to take it. "Yuk, yuk, yuk, whatsa matter - can'tcha take a joke?" Meanwhile, he thinks he can get away with insulting hispanics, europeans, russians, arabs, and people who drive BMWs - apparently, the car of choice of liberal elites.
I'll give you a real joke, John. When Norway was occupied by the nazis, they fought back the only way they could - by making fun of nazis. Wisconsin's chock full of norwegians, so I know a few of these jokes. This has always been one of my favorites.
Q: What's the difference between a nazi and a bucket of shit?
A: The bucket.
John Gibson's not the bucket.
