It is an improvement over their original idea "Lil' Beaners."

He also called it a political grapevine.  I'm more outraged by that.

Why does their outreach look suspiciously like a jackboot with a swastika emblazoned on it?

You'd think they'd be all for He who Walks Behind the Rows and his blood-based plan for growing the economy.

Demonizing immigrants is exactly what Golden Dawn (fascists) are doing in Greece.  Is this what you really should be doing Fox?

Technically, shouldn't that be "children of the maize"?

Since when has Fox reached out to anyone except frustrated old white guys?

I don't hate FOX for what they do.

I hate that they can make money doing what they do because of the ignorance of my countrymen.

I didn't even know that Fox Latino got off the ground.  I remember seeing a bunch of ads for it, then nothing.

The implication of this being considered offensive is that the offended party assumes all Latinos in the United States are illegal immigrants.

Liberal racists, at it again.

Ah, guilt by association.  The worst kind of guilt.
Think twice before eating that gyro at lunch today.  The fascists in Greece also eat those.

Why do you think Fox is referring to them as Children of Corn if not guilt by association? Odd that it ticks you off when a poster on Fark does it but not when a news outlet does it. Or it least it would be odd if we didn't know you.
 
2013-09-24 10:41:29 AM  
Republican/conservative have gone well beyond shooting themselves in the foot as far as public relations with minorities are concerned. At this point they're doing mag dumps into their crotches while laughing maniacally, and still they wonder why Rubio and Cruz aren't enough to bring in the Latino votes.

Not true. You can be an asshole without being a fascist. Doesn't work the other way around, mind.

Oh I stopped trying to make sense of Fox News a long time ago.  "Children of the corn" has to be the poorest attempt at an ethnic slur I've ever seen.
I'm trying to figure out though... are they children of the corn because Mexicans eat a lot of corn, or because they're receiving food stamps that (in the eyes of the Republicans) are taking money away from corn subsidies.

I figured they used 'Children of the Corn' because they think that illegal alien anchor terror babies will eventually decide to kill everyone in the country over the age if 18.

Or you could just say "Republican", since both "asshole" and "fascist" are synonyms thereof.

The people being called the Children of the Corn are American citizens but to you they are illegals right because they have brown skin.

Not really.  One can be an asshole without being a fascist.  However, one cannot be a fascist without being an asshole.  Think of it as similar to "Tea Party" and "morons".
