  •  FoxNews has Alex Jones beat: Kill All Muslims. (4+ / 0-)

    'Muslims are evil. Let’s kill them all': Fox News guest Erik Rush provokes furious reaction with Boston bombing Twitter rants:

    While public officials were urging caution in the immediate aftermath of the bomb attack on the Boston Marathon, some were quick to apportion blame.

    One of those was a Fox News guest commentator Erik Rush, who provoked a furious reaction after seemingly advocating the killing of Muslims in response to the attack.

    With no information about the attackers yet made public, Mr Rush appeared to imply in a tweet that the culprit was from Saudi Arabia.

    “@erikrush Everybody do the National Security Ankle Grab! Let's bring more Saudis in without screening them! C'mon! #bostonmarathon.”

    Then when he was asked by another Twitter user whether he was blaming Muslims for the attack, Mr Rush responded: “Yes, they’re evil. Let’s kill them all.”

    Mr Rush later claimed he was being sarcastic went he sent the response.

    The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.
