Last week was full of outrageous Fox News outrage over President Obama’s visit to a Baltimore mosque. But there were also a couple of doozy quotes kicking off Black History Month and about drafting women into the military. Check 'em out and cast your vote!
There are fewer nominees this week, mostly because the debates and the Iowa caucuses forced Fox talking heads to stick to more rational discourse. But quantity does not equal quality and I think you'll wish for an "all of the above" for this week's crop of candidates. But you must choose one, dear readers, because only you can determine the Fox News Outrageous Quote of the Week.
"Conservative Black Chick" Crystal Wright, kicking off Black History Month on Fox:
"Blacks have shown a slavish support for the Democrat party for over 50 years. And part of me wonders if the Republican party should even bother asking for the black vote because black Americans seem to like being political dummies."
Antonio Sabato Jr., attacking President Obama over his visit to a mosque:
"There’s an epidemic worldwide that Christians are being slaughtered and this president has never talked about it once. He’s never talked about Jesus Christ once in his career and that’s a problem to me because I have a president who I believe is not a true Christian."
Kevin McCullough attacking President Obama for visiting a mosque:
"It’s just insincere, for, in essence, a pragmatic atheist in the White House, to look at Islam and say they are picked on. If you follow the plot lines of major television dramas, you look at the way the culture has embraced this and the way the administration has championed the Islamic cause over the last seven years, that is the last faith in America that is currently under attack."
Faux Fox liberal Eboni Williams whitewashing GOP Islamophobia in her "explanation" for President Obama's visit to a mosque:
"Clearly this is responsive to what the president and some feel is divisive language by Trump and even Dr. Carson, a bit higher scrutiny for Muslims."
Gavin McInnes explaining why women should be drafted into the military:
"Equality sucks. By every metric, men have it worse off. We’re more likely to get raped, if you include prison. We’re more likely to be assaulted, we’re more likely to die, we’re more likely to commit suicide."

I think I’ll vote for the guy in the dress.
