Fox Nation Deliberately Inciting Racial Hatred (Again)

Keeping the angry racist base enraged
Wingnuts • Views: 24,527

One of the features of LGF is our randomly selected news feed, near the bottom of the left sidebar. When this Fox Nation post appeared in the feed, I knew right away what I’d see if I clicked through: VIDEO: Brawl Erupts at Food Stamp Office | Welfare | Fox Nation.

That’s right — it’s categorized “Welfare.”

Here’s the original story: Brawl at Social Services Office Caught on Video.

EAST ST. LOUIS, IL. (KTVI) — An alarming video of a Tuesday afternoon brawl at a social services office in East St. Louis had workers and clients concerned for their safety and brought calls for action.

Notice that the original article used the term “social services office,” but Fox Nation not only called it a “food stamp office” in their headline, they actually edited the text of the quote they pulled for their article. The Fox Nation version:

EAST ST. LOUIS, IL. (KTVI) — An alarming video of a Tuesday afternoon brawl at a food stamp office in East St. Louis had workers and clients concerned for their safety and brought calls for action.

If you’re not aware of what Fox Nation does, you might wonder why they would make such changes — you might wonder why, in fact, they have such an item on their site at all.

It’s because one of the main functions of Fox Nation is to incite racial hatred among the audience of Fox News. And time after time, that audience responds by spewing torrents of the most astonishingly horrific racist commentary you’ll find anywhere on the web, up to and including neo-Nazi hate sites. It’s been going on for years, and there can be no doubt that it’s a deliberate, calculated editorial policy to not only tolerate, but actively encourage this.

A few of the comments for their “food stamp office brawl” story (notice that some of the knuckle-draggers use creative misspellings to get around Fox Nation’s word filters):

It’s gonna be a sight to be hold when those EBT cards start flashing ERROR. It’ll be a new reality show. N!66rs gone wild.
