When world events turn serious, Fox News goes all out with the crazy. So it’s no surprise that the Paris terror attacks brought out the worst of the worst on Fox. You’ll wish we had an “all of the above” option this week, I promise!
And the nominees are…
1. There were two quotes that essentially said the same thing, that we should “stop worrying” about our Constitutional rights. So I’m pairing them together:
We broke so many plots by eavesdropping on these radical mosques. We’ve gotta do it again and let’s stop worrying about people’s rights.
It looks like France has declared war on radical Islam and our president should take note. …They’re not gonna worry about civil liberties, they’re gonna go in and get the job done.
2. Rupert Murdoch tweet:
Obama facing enormous opposition in accepting refugees. Maybe make special exception for proven Christians.
3. Dr. Ben Carson “explaining” why voters should choose him over someone with actual experience in foreign policy or national security:
I would say the reason is because you can articulate intelligent options and because you know how to work with other people and utilize the incredible resources that we have available to us. You know, I've had an opportunity in recent weeks to talk to a lot of incredible people who have a lot of experience getting their lifetime experience. I talked to Henry Kissinger and got his whole perspective on those areas.
4. Fox military analyst Ralph Peters:
I'm waiting for this president to call Eric Holder out of retirement to lead a new movement, “Jihadi Lives Matter.”
5. Ted Cruz:
You know, have you noticed that the one time President Obama and Hillary Clinton are willing to use military force is when using it benefits radical Islamic terrorists?
Multiculturalism is what corrodes the unifying nature of what this country is built on. We should point out it was perpetrated by left-wing academics who hate America, and they keep shoving it down our kids’ throats. It’s already destroyed Europe. It could destroy this country if we don’t fight back, and it starts at universities. Look at what’s happened at my alma mater, the University of Missouri. The left-wing Stalinist uprising that is occurring there, and at Yale and all these other places, and the basis of this, the heart of this is political correctness and multiculturalism.
7. Fox News Sunday, featuring this clip, without challenge, from "Barack Hussein O and the Jihadi Singers" on Rush Limbaugh's radio show:
ISIS is all right with me, ISIS has been contained, oh yes. ISIS is just all right with me, ISIS the JV team.

But I’m going to vote for the true believer up there. He’s just fucking crazy and really doesn’t know or care what’s happening in the real world.
Mental Ben Carson gets my vote.
