The propaganda on America's "Fair & Balanced" newsroom, Fox News, must be quite effective. Randall Linn, an Indiana man who pled guilty to setting a fire in a mosque, told the court that the reason for his shenanigans was that he got "riled up" as a result of watching Fox News. When the judge asked him if was acquainted with any Muslims or Islam, he responded "No, I only know what I hear on Fox News and what I hear on radio." This sterling example of the kind of American patriotism touted on Fox Nation said that “Muslims are killing Americans and trying to blow stuff up" and "most Muslims are terrorists and don’t believe in Jesus Christ.” Who says that Fox viewers aren't well informed!
Oh….so that makes it all okay.
I said over a week ago that this moron should be ignored, or better yet, banned.
It adds nothing to the discussion, and the downward spiral of its circular ‘arguments’ is not worth our time.
Greetings and Merry Christmas to you and the NewsHounds.
I haven’t heard from Jonathan and John T.
Give them by best wishes when you have a chance.
Feliz Navidad, Próspero Año y Felicidad!
U sound exactly like Billdo demanding anyone and everyone answers to his stoooopid demands.
U want to see President Obama’s college records too?
When the judge asked him if was acquainted with any Muslims or Islam, he responded “No, I only know what I hear on Fox News and what I hear on radio.”
The rightwingnut definition of “personal responsibility” in action . . .
Now, on to the more infinitely interesting excuse of the 45 beers. According to U, this guy drank 45 beers in six hours, then went out and randomly committed a hate crime. The fact that he admits he got all his information about the group he committed it against from Fox News is irrelevant.
I have three questions:
1) Given the burn rate of alcohol in the body, and the rate in which he’d have to drink them to even make that… what kinda bitch beer was he downing to not be sucking face with the floor?!
2) The best case for blaming the drinking is that alcohol compromises your inhibitions, so how can we prove he wasn’t thinking about something like that sober? Which brings me to…
3) When asked the questions to determine his standing with Muslims, he spouted hate speech, and told the law that he didn’t have an opinion of Muslims that was informed past what he saw on Fox News. Hence the point of this article.
Sober, the man is at least racist enough against Muslims to be vocal about it, and he fingered Fox News as the sole source of his opinion. But you keep on trying to say it was the beer, and only the beer, U.
There is another dumbarse who also went berserk shooting at California police because he listened to Glenn Beck.
And the idiot who committed suicide after hearing President Obama had been re-elected.
And the other idiot who threatened to kill his LBRUL girlfriend.
And the wife running over his husband because he didn’t vote against Obama.
And the moron secessionists in Texas.
And Sarah Palin bitchin about President Obama being selected as TIME’s Person of the Year.
And Donald Trump…
Oh…. I am laughing so hard… I better stop.
Now, U, this case is different because, well, it’s now part of an official court record. This guy confessed that watching nothing but Fox and other right-wing media filled his little brain full of incorrect information that resulted in him committing felonies.
Got it, U?
And what did we leave out? I spent hours reviewing everything covering this, Linn told the police that he was motivated by an image of Islam given to him by Fox News. What’s the best case scenario in that being his defense?
After Knoxville, Tiller, Williams, Huatree, Harris, Kane and Ready? Not good for Fox. Especially with their reputation for hate speech against religions that aren’t Christian enough for them.
