Roger Ailes, NPR executives and #NPRgoesNazi

By Melissa Bell

Roger Ailes (Reed Saxon/AP).

Update: 3:56 p.m.

After a day of negative commentary over Roger Ailes comparision of NPR executives to Nazis, the Fox News executive has apologized to the Anti-Defamation League, Politico reports.

"I was of course ad-libbing and should not have chosen that word," Ailes wrote in a letter to Abe Foxman, ADL's national director. "but I was angry at the time because of NPR's willingness to censor Juan Williams for not being liberal enough."

Meanwhile, a satirical Twitter hashtag became popular on the micro-blogging site, comparing NPR to the Nazi regime. #NPRgoesNazi changed popular NPR show titles into Third Reich-inspired titles. While some saw the tweets as humorous, others were disturbed by the imagery. "It's sick. The Holocaust is not comedy fodder," tweeted Jake Tapper, ABC News correspondent.

11:49 a.m.

In a wide-ranging interview with Howard Kurtz, Roger Ailes has said President Obama "thinks differently" from most Americans, Jon Stewart is "crazy" and Bill O'Reilly shouldn't be in trouble for making beheading jokes.

But one comment seems to have pushed the online world over the edge: The Fox News executive compared the top brass of NPR to Nazis. The comparison to Nazis is often bandied about on the top-rated news network, but the response comes just days after Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) said that he wishes the cable news programs would go away. "It would be a big favor to political discourse; to our ability to do our work here in Congress; and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and, more importantly, in their future."

Here are some of the initial reactions to Ailes's comments:

Just when you think Ailes couldn't be more loathsome than he is, he takes disgusting to a whole new level. Conservatism isn't a problem; rampant ignorance is. If the staff of Fox had a second brain cell, they would rattle when they walked.

So if NPR executives are "Nazi's" I guess that explains why Jabba the Ailes hired NPR's Mara Liasson and Juan Williams to be political pundits on his network. Because he likes Nazis. And propagandists!

But now that NPR has fired Juan Williams, it means that they fired a Nazi. And that must mean they are anti-Nazi. Which means Fox News are the only Nazis left on the block, right?

Maybe it doesn't actually stand for Fox News Channel. Maybe it's Fox Nazi Channel?

Or maybe Jabba the Ailes has lost all sense of perspective. You decide.

In my opinion, calling liberals "Nazi" is a symptom of the psychological defense mechanism of projection. It's analogous to the phenomenon where the angriest, loudest homophobes are secretly homosexual. They fear something so much that they vehemently deny it and instead project it into someone else.

(BTW I am not calling Ailes a homosexual here to anyone who is thinking in too concrete terms about this. Just making an analogy.)

Roger Ailes is human scum. He's the filth that rings the toilet bowl. He's easily one of the most destructive forces facing the USA today, and is an enemy of democracy.

There's real irony in someone who uses all the techniques of fascist Germany as well as their theme colors whenever he can calling other people names.

I'm sure everyone has heard Senator Rockefeller today saying he was tired of Fox News and MSNBC fostering all this breakdown in civil political discourse and wants the FCC to get rid of them. Umm, thought we had freedom of the press in this country. As for discourse, politicians have done their part in tearing us apart. I think he also said that NPR was balanced. You kidding me? Has he ever listened to Nina Totenburg? She should be fired for being "too liberal". She couldn't carry Juan Williams water bottle. Juan is a decent person, she isn't. For years we had to endure the political rags like CBS, NBC and ABC without both sides being presented. Thank God for Fox News where we do hear both sides. W. Virginians, hope you are listening. Vote this puke out...oops, I'm sorry.

Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes obviously believes in fairytales or perhaps he sees himself as an omnipotent juggernaut who floats across the news and propaganda divide as if today hard news is now obsolete. He is obviously a racist exploiting the conservative mantra to offer cover for his blatant anti-African American racism.

Ailes tenor in attempting to degrade President Barack Obama fits the strategic direction of yesteryear’s Ku Klux Klan when they got defeated by the aid of freedmen black votes. Southern whites vilified black voters with their rage morphing into a precursor of a Kristallnacht for African Americans.

“Prior to 1868, however, the KKK essentially assumed a defensive posture aimed at protecting the white community from the perceived threats represented by Union Leaguers and the state militia. Indeed, early in 1867, some white conservatives still hoped to win over black voters to the Democratic cause. When the freedmen flocked to the Republican banner during the elections of that year, however, conservative Democrats, incensed over their political losses, decided that a new strategy of intimidation and violence was needed, ” Tennessee Historical Society.

However, still aching from the 2008 General Election where black votes went overwhelmingly Democratic, Ailes must have been running for Grand Wizard of the KKK in the 2010 midterm election. Since his skullduggery against President Obama has evolved into overt disdainful actions then we must conclude that Ailes is now the KKK Grand Wizard only subordinated to Rupert Murdoch - Imperial Wizard.

One does not have to "attempt" to degrade Prez. Obumbler. He does an EXCELLENT job of that all by himself, with the assistance of the persons behind the teleprompter curtain.

Obumbler's stooge, Holder's abject failure to slam dunk an open-and-shut-evidence case against a pathetic terrorist today, seeking 'justice' more for the Leftist supported Islamic Jihad than for the Citizens of the United States is a travesty for the People and a victory for the Liberal/Progressive effort to degrade U.S. exceptionalism instead.

What kind of executive leadership training are they running over there at Fox News? The kind that you scrape from the bottom of the barrel?

Hum, never mind.

According to Wiki, Roger Ailes is the one who is a Nazi. That in itself says it all.

Roger Eugene Ailes (born May 15, 1940) is an Nazi businessman and president of Fox News Channel and chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group. He was a media consultant for Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush, as well as Rudy Giuliani’s first mayoral campaign in 1989.

=======================

It's been said a MILLION times now. NPR DOES NOT receive direct Federal Funding.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NPR#Funding

http://www.npr.org/about/aboutnpr/publicradiofinances.html

In essence, the majority of their revenues come from programming fees, grants, contributions and sponsorships, and less than 10% comes from CPB grants. Meaning they get $0 of their revenue from direct federal funding.

Seriously, was it that difficult to do a simple search rather than asking "progressive intellectuals" ?

Finally, NPR has been accused of both having a liberal AND conservative bias. This means that they're doing something right, since both sides are bashing them.

Roger this , Roger: Only you get to use Nazi; but where were you a few weeks ago when your man, John Boehner and his colleague in the U.S. Congress, Iott were together raising funds and hoping for Iott's re-election? Iott probably lost because he wasn't wearing his Nazi hobby uniform while he was on the floor of Congress. Roger, can you Roger that? And I bet you are supporting John Boehner , third in line to succeed to the Presidency under the Constitution, because he fits your requirement of not being too liberal-the NPR standard by Ailes. You are not good for what ails this nation. Apologize for abusing your First Amendment right to abuse the news-to the American public.

I don't think Roger should have to apologize and I think he is right in condemning NPR for firing Juan Williams for expressing perfectly reasonable fears!!
I feel the same way about black guys and old white male fatties. I usually fly first class to avoid having a black or brownie guy like Juan sit next to me. I know someone like Juan is a celebrity and has lots of money, but I still, instinctively, want to hide my purse and would never leave it when going to the toliet. (Even in first class.. I think these people have some built in genetic thing about stealing and black males always makes me nervous. ). And, I am even more frightened every time an old white male fatty sits next to me. (I'm an attractive woman...)If there are extra seats I will immediately ask to be transferred, even to business class because of my fear of these guys. If there are no extra seats I ask for extra blankets to cover myself completely so I won't get 'groped' by the old male fatty when the lights go out. I can't help this fear. I know it may be irrational but I think that old white male fatties just can't control themselves even if - or maybe especially if, they are rich. SO, I am completely against Juan Williams firing for expressing his fear which is just the same as my fear of male blacks and old white male fatties.

Analyzing lcarter0311 at 8:54, he comes up way short on Truth, Accuracy, and Honesty.

He's way long on wasting my time.

He starts by asking numerous questions, dispensing his accusations along the way, then utters "never mind". Buh bye, My Time.

Actual Nazis were into Actual Racism, separating the considered-superior 'Aryan' super-race above all others.

Ever WATCH Fox on TV? Juan Williams does not have Caucasian skin. Michele Malkin does not have blue eyes. Geraldo Rivera is definitely not a blonde.

Admittedly, FoxNews has no reservations about hiring hot-looking females for many of its 'face'-time positions. But there is no Racism, and thus, no Nazi dictates, OBVIOUSLY.

The same can not be said for NPR.

Juan Williams was the ONLY Black of prominence on the NPR staff, which had only a single remaining Black 'on-air' employee at the time of the Williams firing.

Perversely, it is NPR with the documented RACIST history, having to have a consent-decree force change at the all-White organization in 1978. Though NPR improved its diversity rating, it still grossly under-represents non-Whites in its employee roster.

I scrutinized the web wiki reference recommended about Mr. Ailes and there was NO indication, direct or indirect, of connection to Nazi beliefs on the part of Mr. Ailes whatsoever. So, that was a lie. So much for lcarter0311's reputation.

In honesty, no one, including my self needs to reference Wiki to find a connection between Roger Ailes and Nazism.

His attitude, mentality, and the way he operates the Fixed news network is proof enough that the man behaves like a German Nazi.

"Cramped official narrative."

Hmmm. Sounds awful lot like the way the rightwingers function and communicate to me. Is this another example of projection, or, alternatively, the use of the "pot calling the kettle black" strategy of the right wing? Their strategy is, whatever they are guilty of, they think they can call attention off of themselves for being guilty of it by accusing the liberals of it. One thing I can say about the right wing is that they are very regimented and organized in their tactics. That makes them, however, extremely predictable. Yawn.

NPR acted as the Nazi's would in firing Juan Williams -- no notice, no face-to-face meeting, just a high-handed, no discussion axing.

Williams was not fired because he is a conservative, he is a principled liberal. His sin is he worked part-time for Fox News.

I'd rather deal with people with character. That Shiller female (pres. of NPR I guess) is a female nazi. She should have been fired for implying Williams needed to see a psychiatrist.

Apologizing to NPR for inappropriately naming them "NAZIS" would have been in error though the organization is notoriously racist despite a few black hires such as Williams.

This is the kinda of stuff FIX NEWs has been doing for years now (18-months). Folks: Let's keep a copy of this in our pockets for quick reference when speaking with our ... 'friends' on the other side. After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad? You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President. You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq. You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed. You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed. You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.
You didn't get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war. You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined. You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq. You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people. You didn't get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country. You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping
Americans. You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden. You didn't get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits. You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed. You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.
There was a time not so long ago when Americans, regardless of their political stripes, rallied round their president. Once elected, the man who won the White House was no longer viewed as a Republican or Democrat, but the President of the United States. The oath of office was taken, the wagons were circled around the country’s borders and it was America versus the rest of the world with the president of all the people at the helm. Suddenly President Barack Obama, with the potential to become an exceptional president has become the glaring exception to that unwritten, patriotic rule.
Four days before President Obama’s inauguration, before he officially took charge of the American government, Rush Limbaugh boasted publicly that he hoped the president would fail. Of course, when the president fails the country flounders. Wishing harm upon your country in order to further your own narrow political views is selfish, sinister and a tad treasonous as well. Subsequently, during his State of the Union address, which is pretty much a pep rally for America, an unknown congressional representative from South Carolina, later identified as Joe Wilson, stopped the show when he called the President of the United States a liar. The president showed great restraint in ignoring this unprecedented insult and carried on with his speech. Speaker Nancy Pelosi was so stunned by the slur, she forgot to jump to her feet while clapping wildly, 30 or 40 times after that.

What's wrong with the people in this country? Have we all just lost our ability to filter ourselves? Do we think we can just say anything because we have Freedom of Speech? Does anyone else think that we are misusing that Freedom when we make outrageous statements about other people? I was appalled when I first heard the Tea Party calling the President of the United States a Nazi, and the Joker, etc. but maybe I've been a little slow to catch on - perhaps all this outrageousness is a direct result of who we are allowing into our heads? The extreme on either side would have us in a civil war again - conservatives vs liberal - it makes no sense to me. We are all Americans (seems I heard that in a speech in 2004) but I fear that we as a people have forgotten that fact. Yes, we have the freedom to say whatever we want to about whoever we want to - but should we? Isn't this how wars begin? I don't watch Fox News because all you get there is one side of the story. I don't know anything about Mr. Ailes other than he is hugely wealthy and that he doesn't even try to filter himself or his employs, obviously. In fact, he goes after the most outrageous offenders and pays them large money to get on the air and insult and degrade other Americans. So, should we be surprised that he too would call someone he disagrees with a Nazi? I'd really like to see a bit more maturity from not only our elected officials, but from those who fill the airwaves. But here's the deal, folks, they are making tons of money with their divisive speech and we are the ones who are listening to it. Since we want to exercise our Freedoms so much, here's one you may have forgotten about - you can decide who you let into your head. There are off and on buttons on TVs, Radios, etc. What we choose to listen to is up to us to monitor and we'd all be better off if we just stopped allowing ourselves to be poinsoned by the toxins coming out of the airways and into our heads and hearts. This would be a great place to deliver a sermon if I were a preacher, which I'm not, but instead, I'll just encourage my fellow Americans, liberal and conservative to just stop listening to all of the trash talk for a while at least. Get up and take a walk - think about the good things in your life and don't let people like this have such a negative effect on your thoughts and your words and your behavior. I think I'll take my own advise and take a walk right now. Have a good day.
