Behold, Fox News’ Violent, Racist Fanbase

Fox News opponents have often cited evidence of racism and race baiting by Fox News personalities. While this has been contested, despite the ample evidence, by Fox News’ fanbase, their unabashed hatred and violent rhetoric, such as the death threats against atheists, cannot be denied. Once again, they have come to Fox News, bearing gifts of hatred, this time toward Trayvon Martin, the 17 year killed by George Zimmerman for nothing more than walking down the street with Skittles and a bottle of iced tea, while black.

The following comments are from Fox News viewers and display their affinity for hate, violence, fear mongering and blatant racism. It’s sickening, to say the least.

What a shame—a tragedy, really— because the dead lil’ gangsta could’ve used “‘A-FIRM-TIV AK-SHUN” to go to kollige an play footballz and make lotsa cash munny!”

[…]

Fast and Furious didn’t work to pass new gun control so now Eric Holder will try the race card.

[…]

No matter how crime figures are massaged by those who want to acknowledge or dispute the existence of a Dirty War, there is nothing ambiguous about what the official statistics portray: for the past 45 years a large segment of bIack America has waged a war of v i o l e n t retribution against white America.

[…]

Zimmerman was attacked by the man and defended himself with a gun. Zimmerman’s wounds were verified by police.

[…]

17 = child. LOL!!!!!!

Let the LIB word games begin.

[…]

Yet the “justice department” refuses to prosecute any voter intimidation that involves a blac k as the intimidator.

[…]

Why should anyone care about this kid? Because he is of color? People don’t value kids period. They are property. BTW, I am a conservative that cares a great deal about kids. We follow hundreds of cases each year, many white babies and children, none of them get attention. But he does??

[…]

Zimmerman felt threatened by Martin’s gang’s actions…this could have possibly lead to these terrible circumstances. Gang violence MUST BE STOPPED OBAMA!

[…]

Blacks can do no wrong, period! That is the DOJ’s excuse for becoming involved. 50+ years of being told they are special and entitled and the gov’t’s only focus is to make it so!!

[…]

In any event, it appears to be a case of one sc u m bag Cuban-type (Zimmerman) offing some scummy b l a ck kid (Trayyy-Vonnnn)…in some trash neighborhood….

but now, because the dead kid’s a kneegrow, we have:

the BIG BAD FBI on this “important” case…and

the usual BLACK-RADICAL-PROTESTERS who can’t mind their own business!

[…]

Gated communities exist because people are afraid….& negros thrive on crime…Look at our prisons.

[…]

Need that too….But Negr0s only have their welfare checks….and in any event can’t follow rules

[…]

What time do the riots start? Gotta get my popcorn and munchies ready for the “hood” burning!

[…]

Funny you never see them rally against the drug dealing murderers that control their neighborhoods. LOL!!!

[…]

How does anyone know what this 17 yr old said, Most likely he threw the race card out ” you stop me because I*M B L ACK” and then became threatning. The media alway plants the seed of doubt when when a B l ac k is sh ot by a caucasian

[…]

maybe his gang brothers incited violence too?

[…]

How’d the kid get into the “gated” community in the first place?

[…]

Them monkeys can jump!

[…]

This is going to be a tough case. gang violence is hard to prosecute. martin’s gang may even want to retaliate. this is scary

[…]

Let’s find out why the “po’ baby” was REALLY there!

[…]

The little thug ghetto monkey should have been home doing his homework, not out gang bangin.

[…]

I’m just glad Zimmerman didnt miss and hit an innocent bystander.

[…]

THIS IS PURE RACIST!! When do you ever see the DOJ investigate the death of a white child??

[…]

This is pure B.S I want to see the kids police record even if something is expounged also why was he removed from facebook it says account terminated.Why because his parents are trying to cover his tracks just like if you hit a bus they see Dollar signs.People have dragged data about Zimmerman out where is the kids past.Don’t say he was a good boy prove it.Ask yourself what is more likely to happen any 17 year old kid when you ask a question.A smartass reply I have never and I mean never seen a teenager run unless he did something wrong.I guess no crinimal has ever cased a place when they went to a store.It takes me aback the way all these facts are quoted by people who read one story on a issue.

[…]

Who says his gang wasn’t hiding near by?

[…]

he could be a good kid, but being in a gang doesn’t help his case

[…]

An unfortunate death, but when will DOJ investigate the death of a Caucsasian?

[…]

Here we go again— a LOCAL law enforcement matter (no federal issues) is being hijacked by the FEDS because the alleged “victim” is bl a c k! We all KNOW this kid was up to no good and now he’s feedin’ worms. Too bad-ha ha ha!

[…]

Last night on CNN Anderson Cooper kept referring to zimmerman as white when he knew he was Hispanic I wonder why

[…]

maybe then the kid was not bIack maybe Hawaiian like tiger woods then we can say s p i c s h o o t s Hawaiian

[…]

This has Bl ack racist Holder and his all bl ack racist “DOJ Civil Rights Div” written all over it.

[…]

Crack Skittles the new disguise

[…]

Skittles actually has a couple slang meanings. Could be referring to recreational usage of Coricidin. Also refers to a male getting lipstick marks from young ladies on the member. Taste the rainbow..

[…]

You think the DOJ or main stream will report zimmerman was Hispanic not White

[…]

That is all it was — just another n i qq er. No loss

[…]

He was slinging crack.

[…]

Is tea and skittles slang for guns and crack.

[…]

Skittles is actually slang for recreational usage of Coricidin.

[…]

This is what happens when you join a gang. kids need to learn from Martin’s mistakes

[…]

They should have a hunting season in Florida for these drug crazed gang members.

[…]

This could have had a tragic outcome. His gun could have jammed. Whew!

[…]

At least he didn’t chain him to the back of his truck?!?!?

[…]

How long will it take to get all of those little blk curly nappys out of the White House bedding so that the next POTUS can sleep without that Creepy Crawly feeling .

[…]

The picture is of an innocent choir boy designed to evoke sympathy for the “victum” and justify the skewed actions of a corrupt department of justice.

[…]

the b!ack community has created a sense of fear with the excessive amounts of cr!me and v!olence and the glamorizing and glorification of cr!mes and v!olence through c rap music (term used lightly) and most are rude, crude, nasty and give others the tough guy BS attitude.You people (term also used lightly) made your beds and now have to lie in them………don’t be angry with us or blame us you did this all on your own.

[…]

Hunting, maybe thinning the herd…

[…]

It is obvious the un-civilized B!ACKS who dwell in the greatist nation on earth have never wanted to be part of the TEAM, they CRY and P!SS and MOAN at every given oportunity about fairness and equality, While lining up for the free ride at welfare.
The United States is cursed with these baboons, Who will never gain the ability to stand up and make it on their own without our help.
They are the eternal retarded stepchild , needfull and helpless until the end of time.

[…]

Now the family of the kid has lost there way out of the ghetto.

[…]

ANOTHER TOOKY WILLIAMS, ABORTED.
GOOD SHOT ZIMMY. lol

This is nothing but liberal racism at it’s worst.  If this kid had have been white, the DOJ would never be involved.

Here is a crazy thought.  Let’s all wait until the law enforcement officers do their job, then we can judge.  I know, what a silly idea.

[…]

niqqers don’t walk, they shuffle, and how was doing all of that one handed, cause we know the other hand was holding his clown pants up.

[…]

Oh stop it with the “skittles” BS and trying to make him sound like some innocent little toddler riding on a little red tricycle.

[…]

Oh swell, I knew it! Yes, here comes The Great Negroid Racist Al Sharpton himself to try once again to extract ghetto justice on a white person by being judge, jury and executioner…just the way liberals like it.

[…]

what did Martin’s gang tattoos say?

FoxNews.com Miscalculates Obama, Biden Donations

Quoted from FoxNews.com:

President Obama and Vice President Biden released their tax returns on Thursday (Tax day). They reveal that Biden and his wife, Jill, earned $330,000 in 2009, but gave just four tenths of one percent ($4,820) in cash and “in kind” contributions to charity. The Obamas did slightly better. They gave almost 6 percent of their $5.5 million joint income to charity. Much of their income came from the president’s two bestselling books.

Check the math. The amounts provided by Fox News for Joe Biden do not represent “four tenths of one percent,” but rather almost 1.5%.  Additionally, there is no mention of President Obama’s Nobel Prize donation ($1.4 million) to ten different charities, but not claiming a tax deduction for the donation. The Nobel Prize contribution would have amounted to over 25% of the $5.5 million income reported by Fox News.

FoxNation Terror Attack Fear Mongering

While Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) did ask Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair about the “likelihood of another terrorist-attempted attack on the U.S.,” and Blair did reply that the “priority is certain,” the headline and graphic posted on Fox News’ site, FoxNation.com, was arguably misleading and of the fear mongering variety…

1. The question was about the likelihood of an attempted attack, 2. the response was that an attempt is thought to be certain, 3. the three to six month time line in the question is fairly typical and 4. why the need to invoke the image of 9/11 when there have been numerous “terrorist-attempted attack[s]” on the U.S. that would have been more accurate to depict? Or, show the the senator and/or intelligence chiefs from the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. They decided not to use a photo of an attempted attack that occurred under Obama’s watch… That wouldn’t be yellow enough for Fox News’ “journalism.”

At the time of this post, MSNBC.com and CNN.com both had photos of the intelligence chiefs answering Feinstein’s question, which is an accurate depiction. FoxNews.com did not have a photo accompanying their article. FoxNation.com was just absurd, like usual, stirring up the emotions and hateful comments (i.e. “If this terror event does happen (and I hope it does not) can they at least take out the White House & congress?”). FoxNation.com was not alone in the headline usage, however – MSNBC.com had a similar one: “Al-Qaeda ‘certain’ to attack U.S. within months.” CNN.com’s headline was better: “Intelligence chiefs: Terror attempts on U.S. ‘certain.’”

FoxNews.com’s Inappropriate Use of… ELLIPSES & CAPS LOCK

The photos with overlaid text on the front page of FoxNews.com is frequently compared to the Lolcats pictures on ICanHasCheezburger.com, but this is ridiculous… Not only is the use of ellipses not warranted, but the emphasis is beyond sensationalist.

FoxNews.com Middle East News Stuck in Bush Era

Nearly one year into Barack Obama’s first term as President, FoxNews.com is still displaying news from the Bush era. If you navigate to “WORLD,” select “The Mideast” from the “SECTION MAP” dropdown and look under “LATEST MIDDLE EAST NEWS” you will see the following severely outdated list:

  • Bush, Olmert Meeting to Focus on Iranian Nuclear Fears, Mideast Peace
  • U.S. Professor Donates Israeli Prize to Palestinian Students
  • Lebanese President Sworn In as Beirut Cheers
  • Bush Administration Wants to Speed Up Aid to Lebanese Army
  • Bush Readies for Visit to Middle East in May
  • Syrian Ambassador to U.S. Says CIA Fabricated Photo Evidence of Nuclear Reactor
  • White House Hosts 2 Days of Mideast Diplomacy
  • Hamas Leaders to Meet With Former President Jimmy Carter in Egypt
  • Carter Says He’ll Meet With Another Hamas Official
  • Army Gen. Martin Dempsey Takes Charge as Central Command Chief
  • Bush Believes ‘Plenty of Time’ to Strike Mideast Peace in His Term
  • Rice Heads to Mideast as Israeli-Palestinian Fractures Grow
  • Bush Administration Targets 4 Individuals Accused of Financial Assistance to Syria
  • Syrian Businessman Targeted in Bush Administration Sanctions
  • U.S. Concerned Over Massive Palestinian Flows Into Egypt

It appears the latest news item is from June, 2008. Of course, this is only one example. Here’s another: If you select “The Americas” the latest news you will find is from February, 2008!

Way to stay on top of things Fox News!

Fox News Needs Definition of ‘Sweep’

FoxNews.com contained a graphic stating, “GOP SWEEP,” however, it wasn’t. Their own text below the graphic even confirms that it wasn’t. This is not a mere “typo” that (to use a Palinism) “gotcha” commenters can criticize – this is an obvious and deliberate attempt to show more strength for the GOP.

Here’s a screenshot showing the error:

Student Supposedly Scolded For Reading FoxNews.com

Leave it to Fox News to report pure hearsay as fact, especially if it’s regarding Fox News, or from Rush Limbaugh, or both. Supposedly, a 18 year old Michigan high school student called into Rush Limbaugh’s radio show and complained that his teacher scolded him for reading FoxNews.com. From the article, Fox News did not get a direct statement from the student, they did not find out which teacher, nor did they have a first hand account from anybody. Also important to note is that the student never made a complaint through the school, so the only record of this is a more-or-less anonymous call to Rush Limbaugh. Wow.

Glenn Beck Criticizes… Self?

In an article on the Fox News web site written by Glenn Beck, himself, he starts off with the fear mongering about a global Swine Flu pandemic. He asserts that the approximately 150 deaths are just the beginning, yet fails to mention that every year there are approximately 36,000 flu-related deaths in the U.S., according to the CDC.

Further on, in the same article, Beck tears into the media, of which he is part, for focusing on the Swine Flu on one hand, while not paying attention to what the other hand is doing. He mentions the Air Force 1 fly over of New York and the teleprompter operator error, both of which he blames on Obama, as examples of what the media should be reporting.

And there you have the hypocrisy of Glenn Beck. He begins his rant about the Swine Flu, which he later states is getting too much coverage. Keep in mind that Fox News is covering it non stop, and on other networks I’ve seen fairly even coverage. Glenn Beck is not only a danger to others, but shows that he’s a danger to himself.

Malware in FoxNews.com Ads?

As if you really needed another reason not to visit their site… According to the security forum on DSLReports.com, certain advertisements on the Fox News web site may be distributing malware. And, apparently, you don’t even need to click on the ad to get infected and may contain a keylogger. It looks like someone at Fox News isn’t keeping on top of the ad filtering, or they just don’t care.
