Fox Nation posted a respectful article about Nelson Mandela’s death – and many of their readers responded in kind. But many erupted in such shocking racism and/or death-wishing hatred for President Obama that words fail us. You really need to see them for yourself. (H/T Andrew S.) UPDATED
This is what passes for "tolerance" and "civil discourse" on Fox Nation:
UPDATE: Apparently, Fox is embarrassed enough by their own readers that they have now removed the comments section along with the previously existing comments.
All of them were off the charts, they actually made Fox Nation look within spitting distance of it’s tagline in comparison.
But, to be fair… Most of the Fox Nation posters who put up garbage like this were on a thread about a black councilwoman that “had the nerve” to say most of the people who were victims of the “Knockout Game” in her district weren’t white, they were Jewish, and they look too… middle easterny for certain people who had become a problem with how they react to looking middle eastern. Apparently, her saying that was the dominant choice in victims for her district was offensive enough to put going after Mandela on hold with this crowd.
Which is good, because tell me we needed a pile on with what the ones who did move on to this one put out.
With all my love,
“LOSE FOX NEWS CHANNEL OR YOU’LL LOSE MY BUSINESS!”
Always remember: $$$$ TALKS — BULLS**T WALKS!
But how long before these same pigs and their FoxGOPTV/teabagger masters try to highjack President Mandela and claim he was a conservative capitalist like they’ve done with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Kennedy?
Call all talk radio stations worldwide and read off what Hate Nation commentators has posted.
The masses MUST send a copy to @reince and add this stinging message: "Are you proud of being a guest on Fox “News” Channel?"
Tie Fox “News” mouthpieces to these commentators.
Don’t let these frauds get away with this insult on Nelson Mandela.
NOTE TO HATE NATION COMMENTATORS
The world will be a better place when you all are no longer in it.
For you Fox Nation…
A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination…Nelson Mandela
Rest in Heavenly Peace Sir.
