Fox News Believes "Downton Abbey" "Poses a Threat to the Left" Because Fox News Has Sh*t for Brains
No, no: Do tell. What's your twisted logic for this, Fox News. This I've got to hear (via Towelrod)
Rich people, powerful people, in America today, are reviled," Varney said. "They're dismissed as fat cats who don't pay their fair share." The general consensus is that "rich people are evil."
Then comes along Downton Abbey... making rich people seem nice. The characters in the show are kind and generous. "They create jobs, for heaven's sake. They're classy, they've got style."
"It poses a threat to the left, doesn't it?" he asked. Because the left says we must hate rich people.
Oh! Now it makes sense. Of course! The people in "Downton" are rich, liberals hate rich people, but they love "Downton," ergo: We might fall in love with rich conservatives, who are clearly JUST LIKE the "Downton" characters, who are so kind to "the help," which obviously represents the rest of us, who should just be thankful that the rich have given us a job washing dishes and hovering over them while they eat, just waiting for a golden opportunity to arrive to offer a bit of sound romantic advice.
How do they fit so much stupid into their tiny little brains?
