Fox Nation Pretends Van Jones Threatened Violence – And Their Readers Responded With Real Threats

For a site that likes to claim it stands for tolerance, Fox Nation sure does print some doozies. Take for instance, their post questioning whether Van Jones (a favorite Fox News scapegoat) had threatened violence on MSNBC’s Last Word, the full segment of which can be seen below. Note that even in Fox's clip, Jones didn’t actually threaten violence. It’s even clearer in the full segment that he was talking about the American Dream Movement. But guess who was overtly and unmistakeably threatening violence? The Fox Nation readers. The situation got so bad that Fox Nation closed the comments. But not before I was able to capture some screen grabs. Warning: Not for those with delicate stomachs.
