It's time for our weekly poll to find out which Fox News quote was THE most outrageous last week. Of course, Fox is full of outrageousness every day. But each week, we round up the "best" quotes and ask you, our readers, to choose among them. Because while many can be nominated, only one can be the Fox News Outrageous Quote of the Week. This week's nominees are...
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus: “This is not a divided party. This is not the establishment vs. the Tea Party. …I just don’t see that, Sean. And I know that’s what people want to play up in the media. I think we’re united.”
Bill O’Reilly arguing that (other) people should go without access to health insurance for another year: “How many years have we had insurance companies not insuring those with pre-existing in this country? How many years? How many? …(I)t’s been roughly since the Revolutionary War, OK? That’s how long. And I think for the greater good of the nation we can go another year or nine months.
Charles Gasparino fear mongering that a commie was just elected mayor of New York: “I call him Comrade Bill De Blasio. …This is the epicenter of capitalism. …When you have the epicenter of capitalism being held hostage by a potential socialist, that’s a real problem.
John Stossel wishing it was legal for (poor) people to make money by selling their kidneys – and rich people to jump the organ donor line by buying them: “This upsets people, but I’m upset it’s not legal. ..In the one country where it is legal, nobody waits for a kidney. ..,I’m afraid to say (that country is) Iran. But, still! There’s no waiting line. In America, lots of people die waiting for kidneys.”
Private wealth advisor Derrick Kinney fear mongering that government regulations to ban trans fats will lead to some kind of economic collapse: “First, it was health care choices being limited, now we’re being told you can’t have a donut, for goodness sakes. The key here is for many small business people, it’s not about trans fat, it’s about how these communications or rather dictations are communicated and heard by Wall Street and business owners. In many cases, it appears they’re taking the ‘free’ out of free enterprise. …If they feel like they’re being told what to do, it can cause them to retaliate, shut down, or simply not produce the good and services we need most right now. This could be bad news all the way around.”
Bill O’Reilly, reading President Obama’s mind about those health insurance policy cancellations in the wake of ObamaCare regulations: “President Obama knew that would happen and he actually wants it to happen because it forces Americans into the Obamacare exchanges to get new policies, many of which are more expensive. Remember, remember. The goal of President Obama and the Democratic Party is for the government to control the entire healthcare industry. That’s called the single-payer system.”
