It seems Fox Nation’s post on Barack Obama’s 50th birthday party titled “Obama’s Hip-Hop BBQ Didn’t Create Jobs” spurred so many racist and defamatory responses that they had to shut down the comments on the article completely.
On Friday, Fox News’ Fox Nation website was forced to shut down comments on a post that referred to President Obama’s 50th birthday party as a “Hip-Hop BBQ,” after receiving many submissions that were racist. “We found many of the comments to be offensive and inappropriate and they have been removed,” Bill Shine, the executive vice president of Fox News programming, told The Cutline on Friday.
As noted, Fox was forced to shut down the comments on this post but yet apparently still doesn’t have any problem with the headline that initiated the comments as it remains. Of course this just further highlights the outright hatred demonstrated by many at Fox and from those that drink the Fox Kool Aid and is just the latest in a continuing pattern of hatred by Fox and many of their followers.
All that seems to be missing from Fox’s logo are men in hoods wearing white sheets and a burning cross.
