Trouble in the "FOX den"

"Anchors Away!"

I am about to utter words that will make me feel very dirty. But they must be said. . .I am proud of Chris Wallace and Brian Kilmeade. I would normally find no common ground with either FOX News anchor, but today they stood up to the blatant race-baiting and distortion tactics that their network uses daily in it's attempts to shape public opinion. And for that they are to be commended:

Fox News' very own anchors are speaking out — and walking off — over what they perceive to be "Obama-bashing" on their network.

This morning on "Fox and Friends," Brian Kilmeade walked off the set after a dispute with his co-hosts Gretchen Carlson (she who celebrates deadly floods) and Steve DoucheyDoocy over Obama's comment that his grandmother is a "typical white person." Kilmeade argued that the remark needed to be taken in context and eventually got so fed up with his co-hosts that he walked off set.

Later, "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace came on the show and railed against "Fox and Friends" for what he called "Obama-bashing."

The following is the actual statement made by Senator Obama, in it's full context, rather then the clipped version that FOX and Friends aired over and over:

I wanna say "everybody get over it", but the reality is that ANY conversation about race never turns out well. I also think there is kind of a double standard as well, but for good reason.

I didn't grow up black or half black so I really can't put myself into those shoes, but because of discrimination etc., I do feel that blacks have/had it harder than whites; but with that being said, I still think that if Hillary said something similar about a "typical black person", the reaction would be far worse than Obama's "typical white person" comment.

You can debate it all day long.

The fact is that racism is defined different ways by different people; and it's never a popular conversation in a crowded room.
