Fox Reporter Calls For Protestors To Fight Fascism
I could barely watch Fox at all today. The network was not just reporting on a protest. They organized this entire teabag hysteria and crossed the line. Nobody can argue after today that Fox merely 'reports' the news.
What is worse, they are now fomenting anti-government agitation. If any violence comes from this, they had better run for cover, because they need to be held accountable.
Just watch the video above, from Media Matters, which showcases Cody Willard, from Fox Business News, asking the question, "Guys, when are we going to wake up and start fighting the fascism that seems to be permeating this country?" Fighting the fascism? On what planet do you live on Cody? How dare you compare Obama to Hitler, which is what you are, in essence, doing. And wait until you hear his definition of fascism, "big business and government getting in bed together."
If that is the definition, George Bush was the biggest fascist of all time. Or wasn't one of the primary reasons for the war in Iraq to profit the corporate friends of the Republican administration? These people are loony beyond belief.
Fox is beyond the point of just being a nuisance. They are now bordering on dangerous. Anyone doubting that needs to examine what inspired Richard Poplawski to slaughter 3 police officers, helped by the heated rhetoric of Fox nutjob Glenn Beck.
The link to that story is here.
I don't know what it takes to stop them, possibly a mass boycott of every single one of the Fox sponsors. But something has to be done. Now.
