Fox News 'Democrat' Plays Ann Coulter

Fox News "Democrat' Plays Ann Coulter
Views:

This clip from this morning echoes many of Kirsten Powers comments in her op-ed at the Fox News site. The rightwing twitter-verse may applaud Ms Powers for speaking truth to power, or whatever, but viewed from the opposite political perspective, one wonders why Fox News employs this token "Democrat" if she's just going to come off as a less shrill, less hysterical version of Ann Coulter? Don't appearances such as this one just blow her cover?

Team Obama’s unseemly groveling to violent extremists has been cloaked in a newfound concern on the left for respecting religious sensibilities. Tuesday, a liberal professor argued in USA Today that the maker of the Mohammed film should be arrested.

President Obama said in the Rose Garden: "We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others" and Clinton asserted that, "The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others." Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough endorsed efforts to create "a world where the dignity of all people—and all faiths—is respected."

Apparently our foreign policy is now being run by Dr. Phil. Someone needs to explain to the White House that our Constitution protects freedom of religion from government interference, not the protection from people who say mean, critical or offensive things about one's religion.
