    He's a journalist and on top of that works for Fox News. Any criticism has or should have zero effect on him.

    and apparently that was filmed in a swimming pool stadium judged by the sound quality.


    question, have you ever tried to watch CNN or any other form of media?

    I'm always surprised to hear that people still watch Fox News.

    Go read Free Republic. With the growing acceptance in society for BLGT people and the advances in marriage equality and other rights, a lot of crazies think we're literally in the biblical end times. There are a lot of people who need someone willing to confirm their hatred of minorities, poor people, and BLGTs. Fox capitalizes on that market. It's the life or lunch principle. You'll always expend more energy to save your life than to acquire lunch. American conservativism is facing a number of existential threats.

    So I skimmed it a bit. Some excerpts that I found amusing vomit inducing:

    "if they’re banning smoking due to it being a public health hazard, then why aren’t they banning homosexuality?"

    or

    "If we abandon the Bible, we are nothing more than a bunch of animals."

    or even

    "O’Reilly should not be even mentioned in the same sentence with Rush. Rush is an original thinker. O’Reilly is a loudmouth gasbag."

    or perhaps

    "Typical commie BS. Running candidates who aren’t qualified to be POTUS but the ‘RAT low information voters love them."

    And on the note of the last quote, do people even know what a communist is at this point? Or is it just some vaguely insulting nonsense word we throw around at each other?

    Thanks to McCarthyism, I think an overwhelming majority of Americans associate communism with thing that are flat out BAD in their opinions. There is no view of what it is to them, it's just something and anything that they don't politically agree with. The updated vernacular used has now become 'Socialist', so they seem more educated and politically correct about their unwillingness to compromise.

    What frustrates me is how the United States was founded on this idea of equality and the ability to accept any view to promote freethinking, but people today can still call something 'Unamerican' and be referring to its difference to predominantly Conservative Christian views.

    I would, but I dont want to watch networks that constantly bash conservatives, plus I've been influenced by my dad to not do so. The sound quality might be the youtube video quality, the video wasnt in HD so thats probably what you were hearing. Fun fact: All Fox News broadcasts are filmed in Washington DC.

    They invited him to the show, knowing full well they would very likely disagree People disagree and that's okay. I hardly think what happened was unnecessary, at least not fully so.

    I think that both sides of the fence can be a little blinded sometimes. I'm sure many conservatives who dislike what the Rep. Ellison said would have no problem with a conservative voice speaking out against what they would believe as liberal journalism distorting facts and lying to the American public. I'm sure many already think that's going on, and they have every right to that opinion. However, that's also what Rep. Ellison felt was going on but in the reverse and he also has every right to have that opinion. Not only that if they invite him on the show to have a discussion knowing full well that he thinks differently from the host, then I think they expected and deep down were hoping this would happen. This sort of thing is great for getting people talking, which helps them in the long run.

    I do disagree with the wording he used though. He got a bit carried away and spoke more with emotion then explaining why it was he felt that way, but we can all be guilty of that sometimes. Instead of focusing on saying things like how people shouldn't be watching, he should have been focusing on presenting why it was that he believes what was represented was wrong. I don't think he was this perfect being who didn't do a single thing wrong at all, but I don't think he did anything "wrong" either.

    The Dr. Carson thing well... I hope you understand that even if you disagree with gay marriage, that comparing two consenting adults in a relationship with bestiality was wrong of him. Thankfully he did apologize for that and admitted his fault so that should just be the end of that. I'm going to avoid speaking up about the conversation that lead to the blowout, because I don't want to derail this thread.

    When it comes to the blowout that I think was what you were intended to share though, it's pretty much the same situation here. People speak sometimes more with their hearts and their passions then their heads even if they intended to be cool and collected. They can't cool down at all either, they don't have a second to do so in these types of situations where you have to respond immediately. So sometimes this is going to happen, unfortunately when someone really strongly disagrees with someone else. I do think that we should always keep a level head when possible, there is no need for the yelling. Still we should also always try to understand where a person's anger is coming from. If someone said something that really angered you, your immediate response might be to act in such a way as well. The best of us all do once in a while.
