You may recall that over the holidays, Fox News engaged in hypocritical class warfare over Nancy Pelosi's and President Obama's Hawaiian vacations. Not surprisingly, FoxNews.com picked up the class warfare attack, at least on Pelosi. The readers reacted with real class, too - by wishing she gets killed and/or raped. Comments were eventually closed, but not before we were able to get some screen grabs. You can see that many of the disturbing comments were up for at least several hours. This is Fox News' modus operandi. They put up an inflammatory post and rather than properly moderate, they leave the comments there until the thread is eventually shut down. We've repeatedly posted about the longing for violence to Democrats in Fox News' online communities.
Sadly, what you see below is just the most disturbing of a large number of very disturbing comments. Can you imagine if Huffington Post or Daily Kos readers made such comments about Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin?
The grabs below have been edited for size in an effort to make them narrow enough to fit into our column and yet big enough to still be readable. No other alterations have occurred.
