Just another chapter in The War on People.

so, if someone is visiting from Europe they should bring their own EMT?  good to know.

"So, those calls you have to respond to, even though for the most part when you get there, you realize, they're not an American citizen?" the Fox News host pressed.

How do you realize that? Do most people have their passports at the ready when they call 911?

And the mouth-breathing subhumans that watch that sh*t cheer the idea of letting people suffer and die

And lo, Jesus said 'give them aid and heal all wounds'

'But Jesus' the townspeople cried out, they are not from this village!

'Well, f*ck em' replied Jesus.

Luke 10: 25-37

Helping people in distress is a basic part of most cultures and religions, and especially the Christian religion.

911 would also be forced to assist Steve Doocy which I find outrageous.
 
2014-07-23 12:58:39 PM  
Modern compassionate, Christian conservatives: people who read the parable of the Good Samaritan and think the priest and the Levite are the people Jesus held up as role models.

To be fair, it's Fox and Friends.

I don't watch Fox News or Fox opinion shows so I don't know if they have actual segments of news and opinion or if it's one indistinguishable continuous blob of newsy opinion infotainment.

I wonder how fox would respond if american tourists were left in the streets after getting hit by cars overseas?  I mean, unless they had a credit card, or a wad of cash.
 
2014-07-23 01:03:38 PM  
So, those calls you have to respond to, even though for the most part when you get there, you realize, they're not an American citizen?

Soooo.... what's the plan here, Doocy? You want them to respond, card the victim and then just pack up and turn around if they're not carrying ID?

Are we certain that Fox News isn't trying to muscle in on Comedy Central's territory at this point? Because I find it really hard to imagine somebody being so comically stupid as Doocy while still retaining enough functioning brain cells to control autonomic functions.

"A small Texas town forced to answer 911 from stranded illegals in Spanish!" Doocy exclaimed.

They literally do not think of them as people.

There's no way anyone is that cold and callous. Subby has to be exaggerating.

Caller: Help, help there is a man in my house, I've locked myself in the bathroom I think he wants to kill or rape me.

911 operator: I'm sorry ma'am but I'm going to need the ID number from your passport before I can send help.

Alternately it would create a new growth industry. "Tony what you say we hang out a JFK and rob a few foreigners police won't do anything about it."

/just guessing but "foreign" means dark skin not from another European country.

Fox News argues that 2+2=5.

Because they really believe it's true. They know it in their gut. They just know it. Facts be damned.

Don't get fouled, Rooney. Fox News has sent its marching orders.
 
2014-07-23 01:10:13 PM  
.. Yep this is fairly consistent with what I know and have come to expect from fox news. I watch/listen to fox news, MSNBC, CNN and a few other news programs throughout the day and I find that probably 90% of what comes off Fox news is complete partisan BS, MSNBC is about 75% complete partisan BS and CNN is just half assed BS that doesn't seem to lean to hard in ether direction, or focus on anything really important..

Fox News: Republicans did something good today by insisting to not actually do anything and obstruct the rest of congress
MSNBC: Republicans did something heartless today because they kicked a puppy that a democrat was trying to pet
CNN: Live footage of a war zone, airplane crash, we have no real facts about ether but we're here looking at them, Oh btw the supreme court ruled on something important today so here is a 1 sentence headline on that, now thats out of the way, back to live footage of war zones and airplane crashes without any context or real information about the situation itself.

"This is the 9/11 operator, please state the nature of your residency and you country of origin.  Calm down sir, I realize you have armed intruder, do you have a copy of your birth certificate or work visa."

It's funny how the Know Nothing Party was only really active for a few years in the mid-1850s, and yet their influence still looms large over the country today.

Have you seen the movie Lone Survivor?  Spoiler alert, the guy's life is saved by a Muslim because his religion compelled him to look after someone in distress even though he was technically an enemy.

Wait, wait.

Guys, he's not against foreigners.  He's against emergency response at all.  That shouldn't be a government thing, they'll just screw it up.  We need to privatize things like that, actually make some jobs.

The hosts of Fox & Friends on Wednesday were shocked to learn that emergency responders were "forced" to serve non-English speakers in life-threatening situations even if the callers were suspected of entering the country illegally.


Because it is SO easy to determine immigration status from a panicked person on the phone. I do it every day when I fix people's computers. It's a;; in the accent, you know...

Ez 16:49-50: Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.

Luke 10:30-37: Jesus answered, "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he travelled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and said to him, 'Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.' Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbour to him who fell among the robbers?"

He said, "He who showed mercy on him."

Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."

Fark Faux News.  They are a Plague.

"That's correct, but they're on U.S. soil, and due process comes into play, and that's the way we're taking them as," Martinez explained.

That clears things up. I knew there must be some explanation for why someone would help a dying man.
I don't think this border problem is going to go away, at least not while Democrats are in charge. We need to elect some Republicans to tank the farking world economy again. The Mexicans won't come here if there are no jobs.
 
2014-07-23 01:15:14 PM  
And speaking a foreign language is evidence of one's immigration status how? What if a person had a stroke and couldn't speak clearly?

"Can't understand a word he's sayin. Must be a furriner. Let's go."

I would love to see a form of public slut shaming for people like this, call it "ass shaming". When are people going to realize that, yes, they put themselves in that situation and it's their fault they need help, but they are there *now*. You have a duty as a member of the human race to help.
 
2014-07-23 01:16:22 PM  
I would have been shocked had anyone at FN reacted any other way, this is par for the course.

they are a joke, an embarrassment and anyone who tunes in to get anything other than a laugh from them is more than likely a sociopath, seriously.

anyone who tells me they watch regularly (which hasn't been often lately) i consider an idiot.

Implying there's a moral imperative to help people facing injury or death when it's in our power to do so regardless of their identity or connections is just the sort of bleeding-heart claptrap I've come to expect from liberals.

The Nuremberg Laws of 1935 heralded a new wave of antisemitic legislation that brought about immediate and concrete segregation: Jewish patients were no longer admitted to municipal hospitals in Düsseldorf...

Actually, "Know-Nothing" comes from members being secretive about their membership, responding that they "know nothing" about this aggressively nationalist, xenophobic tea party American party.
