Fox Nation was so excited that President Obama got booed at a basketball game, they forgot to point out that he was mostly cheered and applauded.
Fox Nation took its post from the U.K.'s conservative newspaper, The Daily Mail. But the paper noted in a subhead, "Boos and jeers competed with more approving fans." Somehow, that got left out of the "America-loving" Fox Nation article.
If you watch the video below, you'll see that there were more cheers and applause than jeers and boos.
Still, Fox Nation readers used the opportunity to pour forth some racist animosity and a death wish. Note to Fox Nation: I have reported this one to the White House (again).
You could probably hear the boo’s a bit louder by the teabagger and repuKKKe sections, generally the “well-to-do, and scared-they-are-going-to-have-to-pay-more” crowds. The cheap seats up high were probably all cheering for the President, because he represents more the regular struggling American working man and woman.
I tried posting on “newsbusters”, and I get locked out after just a few posts. I don’t think I ever got insulting, but damn, did the roof fall on me whenever I’d post an opposing view or question some one’s comment. Trolls like meyer below are really not welcome nor helpful to any debate or discussion. You want to pose a question or debate an issue, then do so. If you come to insult or bark back at others, then find somewhere else to spew.
Yes, indeedy! But we call them ‘trolls’. We just let them spew their dumbness for a few comments, then Ellen bans them.
And then you change your ‘name’ and the cycle begins anew.
Yeah, the right’s doing SUCH a good job not looking like theocratic fascists, aren’t they?
BTW, to answer your question about how much I watch Fox News- I have to obtain the take of every host who weighs in on major stories, and I follow certain hosts on my own for sites that blog about them (including this one). Trust me when I say that Ailes wants a dictatorship, and he’s looking at the GOP to give it to him.
Do you agree with Stephen F. Paul’s sentiments or not? Do you think this is proper to have such comments displayed publicly with no recourse whatsoever?
