Michelle Malkin and her Fox News Friends demonstrated a stunning hostility to democracy as they didn't just whine about legally-mandated voter registration opportunities in Obamacare applications but thought there should be a lawsuit to prevent them.
But to Malkin and her like-minded Fox friends this is an effort to buy or coerce votes.
STEVE DOOCY: You think, “OK, If I want Obamacare, I’m going to have to register to vote,” right?
MICHELLE MALKIN: The new Hippocratic oath is no longer “First do no harm,” it’s “First get them registered to vote.” …We all knew that it was transparent that Obamacare was just another vehicle to recruit the next generation of Democrats. Now that has been confirmed.
GRETCHEN CARLSON: Is that legal for them to put it in there?
MALKIN: It sounds like a potential lawsuit or certainly a question that should be raised by some public interest law firm.
BRIAN KILMEADE: If Punxsutawney Phil can get sued for not having spring start on time, why not sue them for putting this voting thing in there?
For most people, passing legislation designed to be popular with the electorate and then encouraging them to vote would be considered the American way of governing. Laudable even. Only on Fox News – whichembraces GOP voter suppression efforts - would such activity be presented as something evil that must be prevented.
Rather than deal with accusations about the credibility of Steven Crowder's "union thug" video, Fox pretended that the big issue surrounding the Michigan labor union demonstrations is left-wing violence and President Obama's failure to address it.
