Bob Beckel Earns His Pay As Fox News‘ Clown ‘Liberal’ Racist

11 July 2014

Fox News‘ token liberal host Bob Beckel used a racial slur Thursday on “The Five” to refer to Chinese hackers.

“The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.,” Beckel said. “They have been, they will be and they can wait, they’re very patient. You know what they just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen — uh, Chinese people — how to do computers. They go back to China and they hack into us, right?”

Beckel then made a vulgar arm gesture to drive his point home.

US army platoon investigated for ‘Racial Thursdays’ tradition of soldiers yelling racist insults at one another

Reports claim commanding officer supported tradition as he believed it helped camaraderie

The US army is investigating claims that a platoon where a soldier of Chinese origin took his own life after allegedly receiving racist taunts, has been holding “racial Thursdays” where soldiers hurl epithets at one another without any reprimand.

Reports said officials had launched an investigation into the “tradition”, after receiving complaints from a black sergeant who said a superior officer had supported the practice as he believed it helped build camaraderie.

The Army Times said the platoon being investigated – the Alaska-based 1st Stryker Brigade, 25th Infantry Division – is the group that Pvt Danny Chen belonged to.

Mr Chen, who was of Chinese ethnic background, is said to have killed himself in October 2011 in Afghanistan after what prosecutors alleged was physical and emotional abuse from his fellow soldiers. Eight soldiers were charged following Mr Chen’s suicide.

“It’s degrading to the soldiers,” a staff sergeant who was not identified, told the newspaper. “We’ve had soldiers almost fight over the crap that’s going on here.”

He added: “When I first got to my unit, someone said we should do Racial Thursdays because it’s been a tradition. It’s something they made up where you can say any racist remark you want without any consequences. The platoon sergeant said no, but the shit is still going on.”

The army did not immediately respond to The Independent’s inquiries on Friday. However, Lt Col Alan Brown, a spokesman for the  army’s Alaska command, confirmed to the Army Times that an inquiry was underway.

J.K. Rowling Responds to Rupert Murdoch‘s Muslim Tweet

12 January 2015

J.K. Rowling is not a big Rupert Murdoch fan. After Paris was hit by a recent terror attack at satire magazine Charlie Hebdo‘s offices that left 12 dead, Murdoch tweeted Friday: Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.

Emerson claims city is a Muslim no-go zone

A US news commentator was forced to make an embarrassing apology yesterday after claiming Birmingham was a “no-go” zone for non-Muslims.

Describing Britain’s second city, Steve Emerson told Fox News: “There are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim, where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in” in comments broadcast worldwide.

Less than a quarter of the city’s one million residents are Muslim, according to the latest census data from 2011.

Mr Emerson later apologised for his “terrible error” regarding “the beautiful city of Birmingham” and suggested the remarks had been down to “other sources.”

Maybe these ‘other sources’ were Emerson’s boss, Rupert Murdoch?

… The clanger prompted lobby journalists to jokingly question a No 10 spokesman yesterday on whether the PM feels safe in Birmingham.

But David Cameron later called Mr Emerson “a complete idiot” and scoffed: “When I heard this I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April Fool’s Day.”

The self-proclaimed Fox News “terror expert” who described Birmingham as a “no-go area for non-Muslims” has compared what he has gone through in the wake of the comments to waterboarding: here.

Bobby Jindal unapologetic after Muslim ‘no-go zones’ comments. The Louisiana governor echoes Fox News comments in a prepared speech for a British thinktank and later defends them on CNN as ‘speaking the truth’: here.

President Obama has enraged American Christians by urging them not to “get on a high horse” over atrocities committed in the name of Islam. Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast, with the Dalai Lama in attendance, Obama said people should consider the history of “terrible deeds” committed in the name of Christ before describing violent extremism as an problem exclusive to Islam: here.
