Those America lovers at Fox Nation have gotten into the 4th of July spirit - by "asking" if we're in a "pre-revolutionary state." The article lists a number of complaints about President Obama before concluding, "Tahrir Square anyone?" (H/T Media Matters)
The article begins:
As we approach July 4, 2013, is America in a pre-revolutionary state? Are we headed for a Tahrir Square of our own with the attendant mammoth social turmoil, possibly even violence.
It concludes with a little race-baiting:
In fact, everywhere we look on this July Fourth sees a great civilization in decline. And much of that decline can be laid at the foot of the incumbent. Especially his own people, African Americans, have suffered. Their unemployment numbers are catastrophic, their real needs ignored while hustlers like Sharpton, Jackson, and, sadly, even the president fan the flames of non-existent racism.
Tahrir Square anyone?
As Media Matters points out:
Fox News has warned of violent uprisings as a response to Obama's policies before. Fox host Bill O'Reilly Obama could choose "to be a good president or whether he just wants to have blood in the streets." At a conservative banquet in January, Fox contributor Pat Caddell claimed the country was in a "pre-revolutionary condition" and "on the verge of an explosion."
Fox News patriotism on display!
Oh, wait- The cop was a white man who did that to a black man holding a white girl. My bad.
As to Tahrir Square, it is funny that the Fox folkkks are so willing to use that as a “positive” reference when, IIRC, the protestors from about 2 years ago were widely derided by the righties (although it was mostly because of the “Moos-lims” getting mixed up in the protests).
I suggest the authors of this article lead by example and lead the charge, and then see who follows as they’ll be receiving greetings from their local police. It will be hilarious.
