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.
I guess at this point maybe we should be asking these idiots to just admit the obvious, no matter what Obama does he will never be able to provide what these folks want…someone with white skin in the oval office.
Donald Trump has openly questioned the circumstances behind President Obama’s birth and now an Orange County California Tea Bagger and local Republican Party committee member Marilyn Davenport might have some more evidence for Trump to chew on.
Actually the picture included here was attached to an email sent by the above mentioned Davenport to her fellow O.C Republicans with the note “Now you know why no birth certificate.“
I will of course let you decide for yourself as to whether there was any racial motivations behind what Davenport claims was a “joke sent to those that wouldn’t find it offensive”. What I find amusing though is that when questioned, Davenport brought out the “I am not a racist…I have some black friends” defense which to me seems just about as ridiculous as some might think the photo shopped picture to be.
Meanwhile Davenport is refusing to heed requests for her to step down and is instead blaming the whole thing on the Liberal media for reporting the story.
