Fox News Believes "Downton Abbey" "Poses a Threat to the Left" Because Fox News Has Sh*t for Brains

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | January 22, 2013 | Comments ()


Do Fox News pundits even hear what is coming out of their mouths? How soft and mushy are their brains that they could legitimately believe that "Downton Abbey" -- a show set in the 1920s that airs on PBS, which Fox News wants to kill -- actually poses a threat to liberals.

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?

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
