What I've learned from watching Fox News

A friend just posted this on FB and I thought I would share here.


Muslims are all terrorists, homosexuals are deviants, Planned Parenthood encourages child prostitution, Israel has never done anything wrong in history, NPR is the propaganda mouthpiece of George Soros, having an education is elitist, incarcerating a drugs addict for twenty years is the most effective form of treatment, Mr. Rogers ruined our generation because he made us feel loved, the only real Americans are evangelical Christian Americans, the poor are poor because they're lazy, we should ignore other countries unless we're invading them, everyone should own as many machine guns as possible, each state should be ruled as its own little sovereign nation, the military should never be criticized, the death penalty is an effective deterrent against crime, mankind has in no way contributed to climate change, the environment is fine and/or irrelevant, the universe was created around six thousand years ago, and I am an idiot.

No sure, I was just teasing a bit. Fox is completely hysterical in many ways.

i don't know how you can actually watch it though---even the clips that stewart & colbert show (even with the blissfully funny contexts that they are portrayed by the both of them in!) make my eyes burn and bleed simultaneously---UGH.

Bleh, I'm pro-Israel and it's still obvious that they have done very wrong things in the past.
