Yesterday, Liz Warren decided to explain her decision not to hold a town hall on Fox News with a multi-tweet Fox-bashing thread.
This thread is the most overly hysterical pile of crap I have ever read. Simmer down, honey. Maybe get yourself a beer. https://t.co/14APlNarEM— Dianny 🇺🇸(@DiannyRants) May 14, 2019
Pocahontas went on the warpath – attacking Fox News as a “hate-for-profit racket” that gives a platform to “racists and conspiracists.”
Apparently, she thought the phrase “hate-for-profit” was such a winner, she repeated it several times in her Fox-bashing Twitter tirade.
She even followed it up with a fancy-schmancy graphic on Instagram — all blood-red and sinister.
Look, it’s a free country and not even news media outlets are immune to criticism. So Liz Warren can go on Fox-bashing to her heart’s content all the way up to the point where she drops out of the primary. She is free to be as critical of the news media as President Trump is.
The problem I have with this Fox-bashing diatribe is Liz Warren’s craven and cynical motive behind it.
Pocahontas doesn’t really believe Fox News is a “hate-for-profit racket.”
But she knows members of the ResistanceLOL do.
And, boy, does she want their money.
In fact, because Liz is refusing to accept donations from Big Corporations, she desperately needs their money.
And what better way to turn a campaign profit than to turn on the hate toward Fox News?
In fact, I’d go so far as to say this Fox-bashing thread was nothing more than a “hate-for-donations racket” on the part of Liz Warren.
And it worked.
As Twitchy pointed out yesterday, gullible Democrats are happily opening their wallets to reward Liz Warren’s Fox-bashing.

Me too! This sealed it for me. Principles and plans.— stinapessa (@stinapessa) May 14, 2019
Yes. The “principles” on display in Liz’s Fox-bashing thread was “Gullible voters will fall for any money-making scheme so long as I pour on the hate for Fox News.” Congrats for proving her right.

It apparently doesn’t escape Liz Warren’s notice that, when it comes to appealing to the ResistanceLOL, piling on the anger and hate are big money draws. And going after their nemesis Fox News is a sure-fire way to rile them up.
So she laid it on thick like the irate, bitter scold that she is.
And it paid off.
Well, it paid off in the short term anyway.
In the long term – that is, in appealing to voters outside of the ResistanceLOL bubble — Liz’s cynical Fox-bashing hate-for-donations racket will backfire on her spectacularly.
