(Uproxx)   When Fox News questioned the patriotism of a 16 year-old girl for wearing pink during her gymnastics performance at the Olympics, the network was virtually begging to be made fun of. Last night, Stephen Colbert obliged them   (uproxx.com) divider line 137

Here's a lesson for you self proclaimed "conservatives": what Fox is doing is textbook fascism.

Someone show FOX this picture and get them to state on air that this girl clearly loves her country more than that uppity Douglas girl.

If she had only worn American Flag Zubaz she'd have scored a perfect 17.76 and Obama's pants would have gotten torn off, Benny-Hill style, to reveal lingerie made out of the Kenyan flag

At least the rower dude honored the American flag with a boner salute.

I'd thought the flag code explicitly said you could NOT wear the flag, as doing so was disrespectful to it.

my favorite part about the fox news segment was when the guy was literally lamenting a perceived drop in american jingoism.

You're not supposed to wear an actual flag as clothing (not sure if wrapping it over your shoulders counts), but you can wear clothing that looks like the flag.

That was my favorite too..."soft anti-Americanism" just has soooo many potential applications, none of them good. I'd love to see someone take this and run with it as a "Fox isn't patriotic enough" bit, maybe with a clip reel highlighting all the times Fox News hosts failed to wear flag pins or something.

The balance beam is inherently anti-American because it punishes you for leaning to the right.

Hey at least Aly Raisman had the decency to wear a starts and stripes outfit when she won the gold on the floor exercise!

That said, "Raisman" sounds kind of foriegn. She gets half credit.

Fox News awards Aly "Raisman" 2 1/2 Patroitics.

I honestly think Beck TV wouldn't be beyond doing that as a serious piece in their fabulous interwebs lineup.
