Andrea “punch an Obama supporter in the face” Tantaros is at it again. But this time, she blew the kind of "secret Muslim" dog whistle that would surely have set her Fox News colleagues howling in protest had someone on MSNBC said something simillar about a Republican.
The topic for discussion was Prince Charles’ comments that Christians are being persecuted in the Middle East.
Islamophobe and sometimes-liberal Bob Beckel wondered if Muslims are just trying to drive Christians out. While he was at it, Beckel agreed with conservative Charles Krauthammer when he said, “You haven’t been hearing it often enough and clearly enough from our administration and you would expect that from a country that has a Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor and that has religious freedom as the essence of the First Amendment.”
“It really is disgraceful,” Beckel added.
Co-Host Eric Bolling refrained from attacking the Obama administration as, apparently, Tantaros wanted to (or already had).
But “Punchy” Tantaros had no such reservations. She said:
When radicals are dominated and outnumbered, they are more docile. Now they’re not. That is why they’re going on the offensive. And my point about the administration is not that they’re not doing anything and they’re sitting back, they’re actually enabling and helping the jihadists rise up and that’s the biggest question.
Surely, this is far more outrageous than Melissa Harris-Perry comparing the term “ObamaCare” to the n-word – which Fox repeatedly attacked in a race-baiting way. But on Fox, you can say almost anything so long as the insult is directed at a Democrat, especially President Obama.
