    What the hell is a "semi military pose?" Standing? Sitting? Slouching? Walking? Existing?

      "parade rest", which is practically the default stance for anybody when you have to stand in one place for awhile.

      ...in something that resembles a uniform...

      ...is now considered a "semi-military pose."  

      And opening the door to old ladies while black is clearly "voter intimidation"...because...

      ...well, because a pundit on Fox says it is.  "If it looks like voter intimidation, it is voter intimidation."

      The overt racism on Fox is so outrageous, it's becoming almost farcical.    It reminds me of the "Racist Zombies" sketch on Comedy Central's Key and Peele.

      The tragedy is, Fox is definitely appealing to a huge demographic of hysterical white people who buy this stuff.

      I am so sad that so many Americans still think this way.
