Fox Nation: Where the stuff too goddamn stupid to pass on Fox News gets posted allowing for plausible deniability and a proving ground for derp.

CSB, my uncle went down on Saturday and stood the line (or stood the wall or whatever they call it) for these funerals. A friend of his, I forget now if it was a fellow coworker or a hunting buddy, lost a niece to this. He's a prison guard and hunts pheasant and goose in the fall. And he's actually just about the most apolitical person I've ever met.

/sometimes the right thing transcends politics
//he's an uncle by marriage but i do not care, he's my goddamn uncle too
///one of my favorite quotes from him is "i'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6"

yet the bottom of the page says "©2012 FOX News Network, LLC. All rights reserved."

the website is a sub-domain of Fox News.

the main Fox News page has a tab in the navigation for Fox Nation. so yeah. they are really trying to keep a clear distinction and put a lot of distance between the two.

IlGreven: And David Duke once tried to run for President as a Democrat.

Newsflash: One person does not a party make.

/No matter how hard Republicans have tried to make Reagan the Republican party.


And David Duke won an election as a Republican.

/Fox News, the channel for people that are afraid of the remote control.

Maybe I wasn't being sarcastic enough. How about...

"Conservative Tea-Party Republican Christian bikers turned out yesterday to protect religiously- conservative Newtown mourners from iconic Democrat gun control advocate, atheist immigration reform and Obama-supporter Fred Phelps."

Proteios1: WBC is a perfect caricature of how Christianity is perceived by the political left, although I doubt they are actors sent in by the left to embarrass Christians. Embarrassing themselves is something the left does just fine on their own.


There has been no real Left in the US for at well over thirty years. The very idea that you think such a thing exists is truly and utterly laughable.

There's a bar near me populated by one of the FBI listed 'outlaw' gangs. They don't start shiat, don't drink to excess, and they tip well. They're also rather amusing to talk to. Why? Because being in the club is strike one, wearing the gear in public is strike two, and if they're not careful the next thing you know there's a redneck in the parking lot with a shotgun or a cop following them home for strike three.

In their defense, most of their followers don't understand these newfangled internets and that's all the distinction needed for them to keep screaming "It's not FOX News, it's FOX NATION!!!!!. Two different things, stupid liberal!"

I remember reading something about Phelps being a strong advocate for black rights during the civil rights movement, which is to his credit. The rest of his life might have been deplorable but he was on the side of good for a while there.
Thats probably how they justify calling his church a left-wing organisation.

You can't get much further right than Fred Phelps. How stupid does FOX thinks their viewers/readers are? Oh wait...

I don't know if WBC are even "conservative" in the standard sense. They're nuts - a cult of fanatics whose bizarre homophobic obsession isn't really even on the political spectrum. Yes, homophobia is "reactionary", but I don't think they practice it as politics per se.


They espouse all the same shiat that I hear from "conservative Christians", just more loudly. I'd say they qualify.

Accuse me of trolling if you like.

maybe they should be disarmed

A three sentence article in which the first sentence is credited to Free Republic and the third sentence is credited to a small town Canadian newspaper (omg socializms, so many socializms!!). That's some fine quality "Fair and Balanced" (yeah yeah, it's Fox Nation, not Fox News but really...same difference) journalism right there, folks.

Personally, I'm impressed they wrote three sentences, considering how Fox Nation contributors write their first drafts.

2012-12-25 11:54:55 AM
So they are butt-hurt that a newspaper in Alberta, Canada called Phelps and Co. a "vocal right-wing Christian group"? Apparently right-wingers think that WBC are left-wing agent provocateurs, taken directly from the playbook of Saul Ailensky (I found this brilliant insight in the comments on the original article on the Cochrane Times website). God luck sane Americans, in your dealings with these whackos.

This just in, Fox News makes its money solely by selling weapons-grade stupid to pure idiots and cowards. Just like every other day since it was created and every other day to follow in the remainder of its existence.

I bet that's exactly how the conversation goes.
 
2012-12-25 01:14:22 PM
I would think of this not as an attempt to peg an extremist as a member of the other party, but as a method to shift those that aren't so extreme towards the center without allowing them to stray to the other party. Kind of a "See, look at how crazy they are. Good thing we don't believe that." way of allowing someone to agree with them.

A lot of people here seem to assume that homophobia is a "right" wing thing. Not the first time I've seen that of course and it's often lumped in their with sexism or racism being "right" wing things.

Those are problems humans have and no matter how much you'd like to cry and scream to the contrary, they are neither left, nor right.

Phelps if I recall is a registered Democrat. I do not know if that is still true as I believe the DNC looked for a legal way to remove him but irregardless the WBC is despised universally by the left, right, and center. I'm not sure where anyone gets the idea that they are left wing from but then again it's plenty stupid to call them right wing as well.

Well, their views are largely religion-based and religious fanatics are right wing conservatives. As for him calling himself a democrat, I can call myself a Jedi Knight, that doesn't make it so. Besides which, the guy's like 90. He probably registered as a democrat back when the parties were the polar opposite of what they are now.

Bingo. Fox Nation was the website that took to calling Bill Maher, "Pig Maher" in all their articles.

Being grotesque homophones? Yeah, that's a right wing thing.
