For the edification of our readers, I could provide you with a transcript, list the individuals sitting on the curved couch, parse out their words one at a time.

But it's Saturday, and here is all you need to know about this clip.

Fox News wants you to be afraid, very afraid, of Black Lives Matter.

Lady in the blue dress won't even use the word "Matter." It's the Black Lives movement, and it's violent, and Hillary Clinton uses their hashtag in her tweets because she believes in killing police officers!

Lady #2 pulls back and points out all the peaceful protests without mentioning that those protests WERE Black Lives Matter. In Fox world, those were a faceless group with no ideology, a backdrop to cop killing and fire setting "maniacs."

The "Outnumbered" gentleman in the middle of the couch then talks about Ferguson with very selective memory. Does he mention the Ferguson police disrupted a peaceful protest themselves, showing up in armored military-style vehicles? Police tear-gassing a woman who was having a heart attack? Police threatening to mace Chris Hayes as he was reporting, on camera?

Did they mention the years and years of targeting of Ferguson residents by police for Driving While Black?

The Fox News Propaganda network is there to make their old white viewers afraid forever so they'll keep watching. Fox will never justify the yes, radical notion that Black citizens of the United States should expect just treatment from the police. And because Fox News depends on a fearful White demographic, they will forever endorse and promote systemic racism to keep viewers.

Black Lives DO Matter, Fox News, just not to your ratings. And everybody knows that is why you misrepresent the BLM movement.
