(By TPM Reader Blog) --
This morning I watched an article that I thought was rather interesting on the Fox News site disappear like magic right before my eyes!
The article was dramatically titled:
Violent Movie Declares War on Arizona for Immigration Law
and it used to be here....
Looks like it was up for a good 21 hours before Fox thought better of it...
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to screenshot the original article, but I did notice the comments were leaning, in a big way, to the idea of boycotting Fox's Hollywood properties and stars. So does the fear-peddling stop when there's more money to be made?
Here's a taste:
"The racists who made that trailer, they are as racist as anything I have ever seen" from either side of the immigration debate, Tancredo said.
But, he added, "these guys are 'politically correct' racists, so you cannot heap indignities upon them."..
What's the matter Fox? Lost your outrage over this "racist" "cult" flick? You report, and your readers decide.
Well, at least until there is a corporate conflict of interest
Chris Moore comments:
Here's the scoop on the film referenced in this article, 'Machete'.
This all just goes to show that when it comes right down to it, supporters of international Corporatist-Statism like Fox and so many other multi-nationals couldn't care less about this country, or what happens to the people who live here (notwithstanding their contrived flag-waving, neocon "conservative" chest-thumping and opportunistic, situational "patriotism").
What kind of "patriots" undermine national sovereignty and incite racial violence for political and financial gain, anyway? That's right, the open-borders, globalization-pimping internationalist "elite" kind.
Wall Street Journal owner Rupert Murdoch, citizen of the world, can't be bothered by local-yokel rubes clamoring for policies so quaint as border control and preventing the price of labor from being artificially suppressed by wave after wave of illegal immigration. Why, such concerns are for the "little people," not masters of the universe like he and his money-worshipping, billionaire, jet-set oligarch cronies.
