RUSH: New York magazine. The author of the piece here is a woman named Amy Larocca. Now, based on her last name, what would you guess her hair color is? Dark hair? Now, you probably ask, Rush, what does that matter? Come on, dont do this stuff. We defend you all the time and now youre going to talk about a womans looks because of her name? Yeah, but Ill tell you why. You want to hear the headline of this story? >a href=https://www.thecut.com/2017/08/politics-of-blonde-hair-from-persephone-to-ivanka-trump.html>The Politics of Blondness How Fox News and Donald Trump have given blonde hair a new chapter.
Now, it is the color of the right, for whom whiteness has become a hallmark. Here is a pull quote, and theres a picture of every prominent blonde that has ever worked at Fox now or in the past. Theyre thumbnail-type pictures. Let me see, theres (counting) Okay, so theres 20 on one page, and 20 on another page. There must be 55 thumbnails of all blondes, and some of these women are not blondes. Theyre red-headed but theyve made them blondes in these thumbnails.
But the pull quote is, Fox News and Donald Trump have given blonde hair a new chapter: Now, [blonde] is the color of the right, for whom whiteness has become a hallmark. So Fox News and Trump secretly secretly! Theyre working on the power of suggestion that everybody who watches Fox is drawn to it because there are blonde-headed women doing the news and that is an automatic attraction for white supremacist Christians.
Thats how Fox is doing it! Thats how it doesnt matter what the content is. The content makes it worse. Fox is attracting its audience by signaling (in almost an invisible way) that Fox is the home for white Christians with so many blondes. Thats what the story says, and it printed out Its a long story, prints out to six pages. Im not going to read nearly all of it. But listen to this. After detailing whats wrong with Fox content wise: And then, of course, there are the politics of hair color.
How many blondes do you see working at CNN or MSNBC? How come when blondes are working there, this kind of concern is never raised? Attributes associated with whiteness light skin, narrow noses Im reading bigotry here. Its online, open bigotry. Attributes associated with whiteness light skin, narrow noses have dominated American beauty ideals as long as theres been such a thing. Which means that blondness has always been charged: The 50s gave us Doris Day, who once said that her only ambition ever had been to be a housewife in a good marriage.
To be blonde was to be a good American woman, pure of intention and heart which implied also, of course, that to be a good American woman, pure of intention and heart, meant being blonde. Betty was blonde[;] Veronica was trouble. Ditto Sandy and Rizzo. Hitchcock liked to cast blondes because he said they made the best victims: The color was virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.' Blonde hair shows blood better. Blonde hair is associated with virginal values which, of course, makes it automatically Christian and right-wing.
And then here comes the paragraph: Fox News and Donald Trump have given blonde hair a new chapter: Now, blonde is the color of the right, for whom whiteness has become a hallmark. And then theres this: Since only about 2% of the world has naturally blonde hair, being blonde is a choice, and the means used to get there can be very easy to read. As can the choice of which sort of blonde, precisely, one wishes to be.
For every Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, with expensive buttery chunks from the Brad Johns salon, there is, somewhere out there, a Kendra Wilkinson or a Holly Madison, with margarine-yellow ringlets. The class implications are almost embarrassingly easy to spot. Are any of you following this? So not only is blonde the color of the right and Trump and Fox News have politicized it, now were subdividing the kind of blonde! And we are deducing from that other things about the women.
Theyre fake right-wingers. Theyre pretend right-wingers! They want to make themselves look like they want to be married and housewife-oriented, and they know how to trick white Christian men into falling for that and its all of the blonde hair! Fox has promulgating all of these subliminal messages by hiring blonde after blonde after blonde infobabe. This is how the left sees people. This is how they see the world. Everything is surface to them. Everything is color.
They havent the slightest idea or desire of getting to know who people really are. Whats the story I had last week? Oh, it was the DNA, the embryo DNA shopping they were able to do. It was all based on, Your kid might be fat. Your kid might be redheaded. Your kid might have green eyes. You want that? No, I want a blonde. Thats what that story was about. That was all about how liberals see people. Everything on the surface, thats all that matters.
Maybe that leftie can explain why Hillary dyes her hair blonde.
It’s my understanding that pointing out things that people in news organizations have in common is a no no.
Carpet or drapes?
By the way, a great look for the Afghan Hound.
Most of the carpets don’t match the drapes......................
Bit of a Nicholas Cage look going on there...say...where’s Cage been lately?
Blonde Hair and American Company branding.
They try their best emulate what they believe America and Americans to be.
Never underestimate the ridiculousness of the left.
Why would you post a picture of a dog to this thread?
Only her hair dresser knows for sure.
I’m a brunette guy myself but the Fox News women are stunning...
Whenever I see those whores I always think to myself
“What a bunch of whores, just a-hoing it up all over.”
I don’t care about her tits or legs or her darling personality.
The hell of it is they actually believe this drivel.
Damned Japanese and their Cultural Appropriation of White Anglo-American Culture!!!!!
That’s the stuff of nightmares.
