Despite its claim to be a website for "those opposed to intolerance," Fox News' "Fox Nation" blog is a veritable sewer of racist, homophobic, and sexist comments on threads deliberately calibrated to elicit those types of responses which include the occasional death threat directed toward the president. Meanwhile, whenever Bill Maher (Dubbed "Pig Maher" by Fox Nation writers) makes a rude comment about Republican women, there are howls of outrage. But this same concern about rudeness doesn't seem to apply to a comment, 21 hours old, on a thread which advances the right wing meme of Michelle Obama "breaking the rules" at the recent presidential debate. The website for those who "oppose intolerance" still features, among the other racist attacks, "Railroadearth's" belief that the First Lady of the US is a "dispicable cunt." Nice.
Fox Nation invites "those who share its values" to "join" them. Judging by what the moderators allow on this site, I'd venture to say that the "values" are very ugly. It's ironic, don't ya think, that Fox Nation and its denizens consider themselves patriotic Americans when, in reality, they hate a huge segment of their fellow Americans. If we remain a divided nation, it's due, in part, to the toxicity that is Fox Nation and, by extension, the "fair & balanced" Fox News!
A respectable blog site has rules and regulations and it’s respectability is preserved if posters are held to those rules and regulations.
Fox Nation says it has rules and regulations but there’s clearly nobody out there to enforce them. Want proof? Go and read the filth that stays on that blog for days on end.
In the days of ignorance on all things sexual that marked my childhood, bitter parishioners would have been tempted to point out that she’s had two children. “You know what she had to do to do that, don’t you?” they’d snigger in private.
That sort of thinking was enough to shame one of my aunties so deeply that she went literally around the bend. Trapped as she was between the Church injunction to submit meekly to her “conjugal duty” and the public shame of yet another pregnancy (over ten counting several spontaneous abortions).
Without hesitation, I charge the likes of the denizens of FoxNation of having destroyed that poor woman by “slut-shaming” her. That’s exactly what they’re doing by accusing Sandra Fluke of wanting unbridled sex simply because she said that health coverage for women should include birth control. Despicable.
I’ve not read such vile and dispicable language since the days when junk mail was mostly circular letters against just about anything that wasn’t WASP (white anglo-saxon protestant): catholics, jews, blacks, coloured, non-English native speakers, you name it, we got such mail during the early Sixties. I even remember one that had it against “pushy females” (using the B-word). Oh, how I wish I had kept that one!
PS: a single stroll down FoxNation lane was enough to discourage me permanently from ever setting foot in there, again. I am, however, deeply grateful to Aria and Priscilla who clearly have stronger stomachs and who create these enlightening threads. And to the others who provide corroborating testimony.
From him alone, we pulled up that he used the N-word almost 3,000 times.
He used other racial slurs towards blacks 5,000 times.
His fav joke was “Once you go black, you’re a single mom.” He told it 680 times.
Every thread he posted on where the topic was Obama, black celebrities or Chicago, he left the comment “This is the rise of the Pavement Apes.” Some threads, he left a comment that was just that phrase to make sure.
When we branched out and checked the social conscience of his friends, we ended up discovera literally four digit number of users that are almost as bad as he is. The ones that aren’t posting there today? They’re not banned, they’re just not around.
Watters and Crew wouldn’t raise a finger against them. And dare I ask Smith if he wants to talk about Fox Nation’s little love afair with white supremacy?
Don’t bother going over to Hate Nation. Instead, call out these frauds by telling the masses of the criminal activities of News International, and the numerous arrests of News Corporation employees.
These frauds are desperately trying to buried this scandal, but we won’t let that happen.
Do you post at Fox Nation? Do you look for a lively debate there?
And BTW, Tom, the Fox Nation posters are, on occasion, rather homicidal. Doesn’t say much for their readers, does it.
And to say that the C-Word poster was a left wing ringer.
Is that all you’ve got. Puleeze!
But the point, ‘Tom/Kathleen/Theola/Kortez’, is that not only is ‘railroadearth’ disrespecting the First Lady of the US by using that term, but also women in general. I really can’t think of a term that women find more offensive. However, the insult is compounded by the fact that the post has been left up there for nearly a day. But you choose to play the ‘false equivalency’ card in order to defend their position? I sure you’ll make your mother proud!
To compare an ANONYMOUS poster (unless you know someone whose real name—either first or last—is “railroadearth,” the name’s pretty obviously a fake) who makes a vile comment about the REAL First Lady with a reasonably anonymous poster making a vile comment about an entire mindset* is really a case of grasping at strawmen.
*Yes, I’m aware that’s not really an applicable term for the folks at Fox(Noise)Nation since their brains are more along the lines of those of ants or bees—brains which do nothing that isn’t part of their Queen-ordered direction. I know that scientists use the term “hivemind” to describe this, but that still doesn’t really apply to the Fox(Noise)Nation since the term “mind” is there.
So, when a “lib” site has the audacity to call them on their hypocrisy, the conservatives have no choice but to send the trolls (like you) to that site and criticize the “lib” site for acting like real conservatives.
Fox Nation has been filling, feeding and stirring this racist pot of scum and hoping for this type of reaction…..but just as a start.
