What's featured on Fox Nation, my favorite new Right-Wing parody site, is almost as interesting as what's not on it.
Pony Pals may remember that I recently highlighted some rather spirited opinions posted by Fox Nation's readers regarding the murder of George Tiller. Later that day, those comments mysteriously disappeared and the comment thread was locked. It was almost like cooler heads were prevailing or something!
Mysteriously absent right now at Fox Nation: the major story you may have heard about a White Supremacist murdering a guard at the Holocaust Museum. Curious that such a big story would be missing!
Also currently missing: the ability to leave comments on this article about "Why White Men Get Paid More." Gosh, imagine the spirited comments this topic could elicit from Fox viewers! What a shame the site's insightful commenters are denied this pleasure to weigh in on a topic they care about in an even-handed, logical and calm manner.
It's almost like they just knew no good would come of it.
LOL. So the site's moderators obviously know they're whipping up a bunch of lunatics, and they totally have to deal with it. A lot, probably. Look at the stuff they let through! So they scrub the most embarrassing and over-the-edge stuff, shrug, and then they go ahead and bait 'em some more (Repulsive Bill Maher Panel Slanders Reagan!) And more (Obama Tells America to Get in Shape!), and more (Obama Insults Israel With This Photo!), etc.
Oh, here's what Fox Nation commenter "Mary" thinks about that last one:
HE OFFENDS ISREAL WELL NEWS BULLITEN HE OFFENDS ME ALSO.
NEVER HAVE WE HAD A PRES. TO SHOW NO RESPECT FOR ISREAL, WHEN NETANYAHN WAS HERE REMEMBER ON A TV INTERVIEW BHO WOULD NOT EVEN LOOK AT HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE MUST GET HIS BIRTH CERT. AND GET HIM OUT OF HERE. YOU CAN TELL HE IS MORE THEN REV. WRIGHT MARRIED US , THEY ARE BOTH A DESCRACE TO AMERICA.
THEY HATE WHITES JEWS AND ALL AMERICANS IN GENERAL.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for sharing, Mary.
So anyway, that's the kind of funny thing on that site that I was thinking about when I saw this video of Shepherd Smith totally saying, whoah, you should SEE the kind of crazy letters we get here at Fox. And then he promises to show some.
Shep, thanks for the offer, but really, we've already seen plenty enough.
