Is Fox Nation Harboring Domestic Terrorists Targeting A School?

Reported by Ellen - June 12, 2010 -

We've written many times about death threats against President Obama found in Fox Nation comments. Now we have found a discussion about committing domestic terrorism against a Los Angeles school whose "revolutionary" teachers accompanied students on a trip to Arizona to protest its new immigration law.

The Fox Nation article - which derives from a Foxnews.com article - does not say that the trip was in any way an official school trip but the headline suggested it was: School Takes Field Trip to Protest AZ Law. The first paragraph was so deliberately inflammatory, it could have been written by Glenn Beck:
Standing in front of a wall-to-wall mural featuring a who's who of revolutionaries, including Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, and boldly displaying the motto Patria o Muerte, Venceremos!!! (Fatherland or Death, We Shall Overcome!!!), a group of teachers, students, parents and community activists in the Los Angeles Unified School District gathered last month for an unusual field trip — to Arizona, to protest that state's controversial immigration law.

The article continues that incendiary language throughout. So it's no big surprise that at least one Fox Nation denizen picked up the hate mongering and ran with it.

One of our readers caught a post by "Sandrailer" advocating a molotov cocktail at the school's address. That comment seems to have been removed by the Fox Nation moderators. But we found several more that were less explicit but just as clearly advocating violence against the school. Unfortunately, I am unable to edit the address out of the screen grab. But I am reporting these threats to the school.
