Fox Nation Still Sanctioning Obama Death Wishes
November 10, 2015

While Fox News throws sanctimonious hissy fits demonizing Quentin Tarantino and #BlackLivesMatter for supposedly dangerous rhetoric, Fox Nation continues to tolerate actual murder talk in its comments.

You can barely turn on Fox News these days without hearing someone condemn Quentin Tarantino for having said that some cops are murderers. He’s “making for a very dangerous situation,” host Sandra Smith lectured. Bill O’Reilly holds up some footage of outlying #BlackLivesMatter protesters chanting about wanting dead cops and demands that either the group repudiate them or be likened to Nazis.

But I have yet to hear a single person on Fox News repudiate Fox Nation, the “civil,” “tolerant” community managed by O'Reilly Factor producer Jesse Watters, where we keep finding death threats and death wishes – without looking very hard.

Our latest find comes by way of reader Barbara S, who alerted us to these two comments calling for President Obama’s death. Seven hours after posting, they were still there, on this thread.
