Fox News Suddenly Hates Violent Rhetoric

The network that popularized assassination fantasies, the network that allowed Bill O’Reilly to air hateful rants against George Tiller, and the network that pays Sarah “Pals Around with Terrorists” Palin a handsome salary is suddenly shocked when someone invokes the word “terrorist” as a metaphor. Oh, and in the same segment, the Fox News morning zoo used Gabby Giffords’ appearance on the floor of Congress to illustrate their point. Tasteful of them.

    Oh those poor poor victimized Republicans!?!

    Booooo Hooooo

    It takes a fair and balanced programmer to make such a play of the victim card like this example. :gag:

    Jon Stewarts piece last week on this subject was spot on, if you haven’t seen it here’s the link

    hannity’s comments @ 3:25 made me blow coffee thru my nose they were so ridiculous

      Yet, last night stewart piles on joe biden with fox for collecting rent from the USG for housing secret service agents near his Delaware house. Seems like Jon has lost his shit since his last dust-up with wallace and is trying way too hard to “prove” he isn’t partisan by reaching new lows in his false equivalency BS.

      I guess an equivalency of how much it costs to house agents near bushes private community would have required research?

    One part of the equation is missing. The Republicans very often use violent rhetoric, not just to describe their opponents attacks on them, but to promote actions of their followers. eg: “We need to be armed and dangerous…” -Michelle Bachman or “Use your weapons. Shoot with accuracy.” -Sarah Palin

    You can’t equate the two. While the left may be metaphorically calling themselves victims of the Tea Party terrorists, the TP are metaphorically threatening violence.

      That distinction is necessary to explain the difference. BRAVO

    It’s amazing that they still have viewers. Do the people that watch that mess have that little self-awareness?! I mean, the air is so thick with hypocrisy over there you could cut it with a Santoku knife.

    How the hell do those douchebags sleep at night?
