Roger Ailes: President Obama Wants Black People To Hate White People
All of the blatantly racist remarks, incidents and undertones that came courtesy of the GOP during the 2012 Presidential Election campaign season has taught Fox News President Roger Ailes one thing: It’s President Obama that is trying to get black people to hate white people. Oh.
Fox News president Roger Ailes believes President Obama “likes to divide people into groups.”
“He’s too busy getting the middle class to hate rich people, blacks to hate whites. He is busy trying to get everybody to hate each other,” Ailes tells The New Republic’s Eliza Gray in an interview for this week’s issue.
But the interview isn’t about Obama. It’s about Ailes, and his hopes to market Fox News to Hispanics, a group alienated by right-wing media and the Republican party, but one that — according to oft-repeated conventional wisdom about Hispanic values — can be brought back into the fold.
“I happen to think that the Latino audience is an essentially traditional audience and will go to Fox News for traditional American values,” Ailes tells Gray. It’s just that “Republicans haven’t used the right language… They keep talking about illegal immigration.”
We can’t figure out which is more hilariously contradicting: Ailes calling President Obama a racist when he runs Fox News, or Ailes thinking that he can reach the Hispanic audience by all of a sudden changing up the slanderous rhetoric towards minorities, specifically Hispanics, that has been seen on his network on a DAILY basis for years.
