When the melting pot boils over

Shepard Smith gets it.

Unfortunately, he failed to make the connection between the false notions that underline the rage and his own cohorts on Fox like O'Reilly and Beck who fuel it. It's hard to believe that isn't some connection between their self-serving bombast and this:
The SPLC has been tracking hate groups for almost 30 years. In its spring 2009 Intelligence Report, they found that 926 hate groups are currently operating in the U.S., an all-time high. These groups include the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, racist skinheads and Black separatists.
And of course one can't discount the GOP's ongoing contribution to the culture of hate and Fox's complicity in giving Republicans an open forum to outright lie on air without challenge. But to be fair, it's not just Fox that is guilty of that sin of omission. We could add nearly every major media outlet to that list.

Wow - this has been up half a day and nobody has shown up to tell us how farleftliberal Democrats get angry at treason, treachery, theft and murder and so are just as guilty and therefore are indulging in hate speech -- just like all farleftliberals do.

LOL Fogg. They're all over at DetNews railing on that theme. Good to see you. I can't wait until I'm settled in here and have more time to read your posts again.
