Hate Speech From a Hack

Keith Ablow, a psychiatrist and frequent commentator on Fox News said yesterday that Ebola was spreading in the United States because President Obama doesn’t truly care about the American people. In a spite-filled rant, Ablow railed, “His (Obama’s) affinity, his affiliations, are with them. Not us! That ‘s what people seem unwilling to accept. He’s their leader. We don’t have a president.” It is tempting to dismiss Ablow’s blatantly racist invective as the rantings of a clearly disturbed mind. But the fact that he is a regular guest on Fox News cements a belief that progressives have held for years: Fox, and the Right wing extremists they pander to, hate President Obama for one simple reason: the color of his skin. I believe we should start a social media campaign urging Fox News to drop Dr. Ablow from all of its programs. And we should also petition Fox to stop stirring up hatred and contempt for a man who was duly elected by overwhelming margins not once, but twice! Make no mistake, Fox News works for the interests of billionaires such as Rupert Murdoch and the Koch brothers, and their goal was made clear years ago: to question the legitimacy of President Obama in an attempt to undermine his efforts on behalf of middle and lower class Americans. This is hate speech, AND WE MUST DEMAND THAT IT END HERE AND NOW!
