Fox News Coverage Leads To Death Threats - In The Name Of Patriotism

Reported by Ellen - October 29, 2010 -

If this isn't an example of fascism coming wrapped in an American flag, I don't know what is. Media Matters reported that after Fox News aired a segment about an Illinois debate moderator not allowing the Pledge of Allegiance to be recited, she and her organization received death threats.

Media Matters reported,

"Our webmaster has stopped forwarding the e-mails to me because they have become so ugly," said Jan Czarnik, executive director of the League of Women Voters of Illinois, which sponsored the Oct. 20 forum in Evanston. "I am getting death threats and I am taking it to our local FBI. There are postings on Fox News' Facebook page that include threats on my life."

..."What a bunch of hogwash. Listen to the arrogance," Beck said about the moderator's actions, later saying of Czarnik: "Jan Czarnik, notice she has czar in her last name, is calling this phony patriotism by supporters of (Tea Party) candidate Joe Walsh."

..."No one ever tried to contact me," Czarnik said of Beck. "They didn't even have the courtesy to see if that is true. We have never had anything like this happen, ever."
