It’s a bitter surprise that a BASED CONSERVATIVE NEWS SITE like Fox News has decided to cut ties with BASED CONSERVATIVE BLACK PEOPLE like Diamond and Silk.
If Democrats weren’t the real racists, one could call Republicans that, because cutting ties with blacks only because the blacks have a different opinion than them suggests that they were only using the blacks as tools to advance their own agenda.
We have to accept that blacks can think differently from us.
They can have different opinions.
They’re not slaves anymore.
Fox News has cut ties with MAGA vlogging superstars Diamond & Silk, who had contributed original content to the network’s streaming service Fox Nation since shortly after its late 2018 launch.
The sudden split comes after the Trump-boosting siblings have come under fire for promoting conspiracy theories and disinformation about the coronavirus. “After what they’ve said and tweeted you won’t be seeing them on Fox Nation or Fox News anytime soon,” a source with knowledge of the matter told The Daily Beast.
No new episodes of their online program have been uploaded since April 7, as CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy first noted over the weekend. Prior to this month, the duo never missed a week posting episodes since December 2018.
A spokesperson for Fox News did not respond to a request for comment. Diamond & Silk also did not reply when emailed by The Daily Beast.
The sisters’ Fox guest spots have also dried up recently. According to a search of TVEyes, a cable-news monitoring system, Diamond & Silk haven’t appeared on the network since a March 6 interview on Fox & Friends and a March 7 hit on the now-defunct Fox Business Network show hosted by Trish Regan, who was also ditched by Fox after her own comments calling the pandemic an “impeachment scam.”
Diamond & Silk have used their heavy social-media presence to be at the forefront of right-wing misinformation about the COVID-19 outbreak. For instance, during their March 30 livestream, the duo claimed that the number of American coronavirus deaths has been inflated to make Trump look bad.
“What I need to know is how many people have passed away in New York, and what I need to know is: Who has the bodies?” Diamond asked. “I need for somebody that does investigative work to call the morgues. To call the funeral homes. We need to know, because I don’t trust anything else that comes out of his mouth now… Something’s not right here. Something is off here.”
She added: “Is this being deliberately spread? Look, I’m not being a conspiracy theorist, this is real, but I’m asking my own questions. What the hell is going on?”
The pair would go on to question the death toll in other tweets and video posts, asking at one point, “Why did they have to inflate the numbers?”
A day after Diamond and Silk’s last Fox Nation episode was posted online, Twitter removed a post from the pro-Trump sisters calling for people to expose themselves to the virus that has now killed more than 55,000 Americans. “The only way we can become immune to the environment; we must be out in the environment,” the since-deleted tweet read. “Quarantining people inside of their houses for extended periods will make people sick!”
They went a little bit off the rails into 5G territory, but hey – that’s their free speech, right?
Fox News has turned into a racist, Nazi, anti-black people publication.
I support the right of black people to have black people ideas in their heads, and to voice their black people opinions with their black people voices while doing black people gestures.
I also want to take this opportunity to point out that Silk’s haircut looks just like the haircut of Tarzan’s best friend from that Disney Tarzan movie.
But that’s okay, because she was a cool gorilla.
I’m pretty sure that Diamond and Silk are cool gorillas too.
They can be our best friends.
