Those "civil," "tolerant" and "America loving" folks at Fox Nation have reacted to the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman with just the kind of hatred we are all too familiar with here at News Hounds.
As most people probably know by now, Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead of an apparent drug overdose today. He was 46 years old. Fox Nation called him, "one of the most admired performers of his generation."
But some of the Fox Nation readers thought Hoffman's death was good news. And they used the occasion to hope for deaths of other liberals, including, of course, President Obama.
Sadly, we have come to expect this kind of outburst from Fox News "patriots." These are the same folks who cheered on the deaths of Nelson Mandela and Andy Griffith, for example. And we long ago tagged Fox Nation as the go-to site for people hoping for Obama's assassination.
On Fox Nation, apparently, "I love America" means wishing for more Americans to die.

From the logic of the Klan to the strategy of the Nazis. Go ahead and ban me. I don’t want to be part of such nonsense.
Had a lefty wrote or said something like that, i would have the same reaction.
You should be stepping up and condemning all of this kind of talk.
To those of you saying it’s unfair to tar and feather all conservatives because of an idiotic selective few, I agree. However the point is Fox Nation which preaches civil discussions and tolerance allows these comments to stay without deletion. Just try to make any truthful comments of what Sarah Palin said, as I did, and watch how quickly they ban you.
I never agreed with the far right politics of John Wayne, but when he died in 1979 I didn’t care how he voted. I was saddened at his death because I admired the man for his acting abilities. The point I’m trying to make is I never wish or celebrate the death of someone I politically disagree with, in the same way I don’t want an injury to a key player on a team that is my team’s rival. I want those I disagree with defeated at the ballot box, and have their political point of view die, not them, just as I want my teams to win in the same equal matter on the playing field.
When we saw that “America the Beautiful” Coke advert last night, my spouse laughingly quipped that maybe MSNBC should have made their tweet about this ad instead of the Cheerios ad. And, once again, the racists have validated the point that MSNBC was making. It would be nice if the talking heads at FOX “news” would admit that it looks like MSNBC may have been onto something – especially since one of their own is joining in with his own racist remarks.
Todd Starnes’ tweet: “Couldn’t make out that song they were singing. I only speak English.”
I’m thinking that Toddles looks like a great candidate for BOR’s “pinhead” comment of the week. What say you, BOR? Have you, the F&F stooges, Kelly, Hannity, etc. have enough guts to highlight the racism, hate and the boycott movement being directed at Coke over their commercial?
And, congratulations back to you. Your analogy proves just how incredibly stupid you are. Maybe you should go back to FoxNation where you can commiserate with others of your “intelligence.”
Not to mention that they can’t seem to realize “no different than
Obama is also a great actor. Hope hes next
