Where was god during this awful ambush of the two policemen in Brooklyn, NY? That's what Fox and Friends Weekend wants to know, and the "Friends" asked Father Jonathan Morris to help provide insight on what god is thinking. However, not to anyone's surprise, the priest did not appear on the program to lend spiritual guidance, he was actually there to validate Fox News' racist rhetoric.
The conservative hosts portray any person who think that police officers have, on occasion, abused their power as inciters of violence. They use the "failure to lead" label for Mayor DeBlasio, whose heart breaks with sorrow for the tragic loss of life, yet Fox News allocates blame squarely on his shoulders. Those other "failed leaders," President Obama and Eric Holder, are also to blame for the random act of violence from a madman.
Earlier, the network featured convicted felon Bernie Kerik and unstable racist Bo Dietl who both claimed that the mayor should lose his job over this. Apparently, if a lunatic decides to travel to New York to murder cops, the mayor has blood on his hands. Oddly enough, when two Las Vegas cops were murdered in cold blood by Cliven Bundy sympathizers, the Fox News world did not blame the obvious anti-government, anti-Obama violent rhetoric for that tragedy.
The GOP-TV network and its pundits are sensationalizing a race war, as usual. If you check out #TCOT (Top Conservative on Twitter), you can see that all Republicans have received their marching orders to blame protesters and their advocates for this gruesome murder. Former NY Gov. George Pataki (R) tweeted:

He's not the only one.
Father Morris, a regular on the curvy couch, is there to validate the hatred inside of the tortured souls of Fox News pundits, hosts and their viewers alike. God is a right wing, vengeful, deity who wholeheartedly supports the racist hatred that festers within this fake news network. Father Morris spoke of the murderer who came up from Baltimore to enact revenge on two random innocent police officers. Father Jonathan said,
"We know he was psychologically a little off, we know, from his writings that he picked up a spirit of hatred for police officers. We are all responsible to make sure we are not speaking to the fringes...we must all come together and say I will not allow myself to speak in a way to incite."
He uses a bible verse from Romans, recently made popular by this tragedy, to elucidate his premise that we shouldn't incite violence by lending credence to the grievances of certain members of society (black people).
The misguided hatred of anyone who criticizes the police has the stamp of approval from the 'good Conservative Christians' at Fox News. They speak of free will, freedom of speech and liberty. But if they happen to incite some sort of violence, it doesn't count. Only the liberals are to blame for crime. White equals purity and black sympathizers are dangerous.
