Clown Channel Pulls Another Switcheroo

Fox Reverses Poll Results To Falsely Claim Most Americans Favor Ending Collective Bargaining

"On Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade claimed, along with an on-screen graphic, that a recent USA Today/Gallup poll found that "61 percent" of Americans are in favor of taking away collective bargaining rights from public unions. In fact, Fox aired the results of the poll completely backward: the Gallup poll found that 61 percent of Americans are opposed to taking away collective bargaining rights."

The Neoconic Repugs have long been the most Machiavellian deceivers of the corporate ruling-class, and one of the most effective devices they have used has been the threat to do serious damage to the working-class by undoing working-class progress. Such threats ultimately have been nothing more than bluffs designed to waste time and give everyone, especially the democrats and other traditionally social-reformist political parties, something to do.

What I am suggesting is the possibility that this thing started in Wisconsin by the repugs may be nothing more than a way to manipulate the game and everybody in it, mainly for the purpose of wasting time or buying time (for the repugs).

It may be true that the working-class has been enraged by this threat, but if we go beyond this reaction, it might be helpful to ask what the real game-play is. What are the repugs really trying to do?

Nz, I'm really kind of in the dark.
From stressing nonsensical topics to obstructionism to pumping divisions to thumping bibles while diddling little boys to protecting the wealthy at all cost, it's too wacky for me to make sense of them. It's sort of like a giant clown car and Faux is their clown channel.
