Fox’s Pirro Peddles Shocking White Nationalist’s “El Paso” Theory

On the same day that Neil Cavuto attempted to pull some of Fox News’ reputation from the Trump Swamp, Fox’s Jeannine Pirro poured raw sewage all over her radio show by citing as fact the same white nationalist theory that motivated the El Paso mass shooting. Yes, a Fox News host is back to promoting the insane theory that led to the deaths of twenty innocent people. The disgusting details from Newsweek: They hate Donald Trump,” Pirro said, referring to Democrats. “He’s the one they want to get rid of.” “Their plan and their plot to remake America is to bring in the illegals, change the way the voting occurs in this country, give them licenses, they get to vote maybe once, maybe twice, maybe three times,” Pirro continued. “You’ve got motor voter registration on the day of the election, we’ve got voter rolls that haven’t been purged of dead people in years, where the Democrats have resisted that.” She added: “Think about that, it is a plot to remake America. To replace American citizens with illegals who will vote for the Democrats.” We are used to shocking statements from Fox hosts, to the point they have lost the ability to shock. But, in light of El Paso, to say nothing about the danger to our body politic, I suggest we muster some shock, and anger. We will need to count the dangers promoted in such hateful speech. First, and most obviously, it encourages the lone wolves out there to feel comforted in their paranoia. Their hatred has been blessed by what they see as mainstream news. It is justified. They are justified, in their minds, as we have already seen in El Paso. I guess the body count is insufficient, still. Second, it sets up a dynamic where Republicans are encouraged to not trust elections. We can beat Trump and Republicans’ asses any number of ways, and the Trumpers have been told ahead of time it is illegitimate. They can – and should, in their minds – take to the streets in fury. Their country is being stolen, so the theory goes. The election, should it result in anything but a Republican sweep, is illegitimate. Indeed, do you detect the sneer at the very act of voting? It is just just behind the words, like it would be better to rid the nation of such a “danger” altogether. After all, only one party is legitimate. Third, it intensifies the meme that only Trump Republicans have rights to this country. Democrats might as well be foreigners attempting a coup of the United States. Picture a farmer in Iowa, one who has been devastated by Trump’s trade wars, and one who would normally vote out anyone taking away his livelihood. But, now he hears that it isn’t about “his” livelihood, it is about white Americans’ right to their nation. He could almost see himself as “selfish” for voting out Trump in such a situation. For his country, he cannot vote for the Democrat, or he loses his citizenship, not just his livelihood. This is the insidiousness of such talk. I could go on, but the maddening three above serves sufficiently for our purposes. Have no doubt, this is planned. It is coordinated, and likely even polled for effectiveness within the populace, […]
