I know what to expect when I hear the name Fox News mentioned, but sometimes even Fox has the ability to both surprise, shock, and outrage with the level of their idiocy, racism, and incomprehension.
The latest example of this lack of common sense comes from the airheaded dolts who host Fox’s morning show “Fox and Friends,” which may be the biggest waste of a person’s time currently appearing on television. If you don’t know, the hosts are Steve Doocy, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Brian Kilmeade.
This trio of dunderheads decided to discuss the matter of the first black woman to ever be appointed Assistant Chief of Police in Miami. The woman, Anita Najiy, is not in the news for her historic achievement, but instead due to the complaint of Miami Fraternal Order of Police President Sgt. Javier Ortiz, who is demanding that Najiy be reprimanded for not placing her hand over her heart during the Pledge of Allegiance. He says she did it “to make a political statement.”
Yes, you read that right: She stood at attention but didn’t place her hand over her heart. What is the world coming to?!
But Assistant Chief Najiy wasn’t obligated to place her hand over her heart for the pledge, according to Police Maj. Delrish Moss, who noted that military protocol states one should:
“Stand at attention, remain silent, and face the flag.”
And Major Moss added:
“That’s exactly what she did. The Honor Guard follows U.S. military code. She was following U.S. military code. It had nothing to do with personal beliefs.”
End of discussion, right. Not exactly. The “Fox and Friends” bumblers decided that Najiy was acting for another reason: she might just be…a Muslim. Steve Doocy tossed out this unproven allegation:
“The fraternal order of police president has suggested this could have been a religious decision. He has suggested that perhaps she is a Muslim. That is not known.”
To which Brian Kilmeade had to add:
“If you’re a Muslim, I hope it still means you can salute the flag!”
As you can see, this molehill is quickly becoming Mount Everest. So Hasselbeck simply had to get in on the action, opining:
“You know, that would be a great question to ask. And so is it our right to know why someone would opt-out of that? How does that make you feel if that is indeed your district? Would you want to know?”
While you’re out investigating and asking questions you have the right to know the answers to, Elizabeth, can you also find out how three people as clueless as you and your co-hosts ever got a job on a “news” network in the first place?
Oh, never mind. There’s no need to explain. After all, you’re on Fox News, and they don’t want news to get in the way of their propaganda.
