Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Hate speech?  Terroristic speech?  Ignorant Speech?  Genocidal Speech?

Andrea Tantaros said all members of Islam need to have a "bullet to the head" and that's not only hate speech it's also genocidal speech.

ANDREA TANTAROS: If you study the history of Islam. Our ship captains were getting murdered. The French had to tip us off. I mean these were the days of Thomas Jefferson. They've been doing the same thing. This isn't a surprise. You can't solve it with a dialogue. You can't solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head. Its the only thing these people understand. And all we've heard from this president is a case to heap praise on this religion, as if to appease them.
WTF?!?!?  "You solve it with a bullet to the head. Its the only thing these people understand." Andrea Tantarous wants to exterminate all members of Islam by putting a "bullet to the heads" of all members of Islam.


Genocidal (noun): the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, religious, racial, political, or cultural group
You may be asking yourself: How the hell does Tantaros still have a job after saying that!!!???  

But the real question is: Is anyone surprised Fox News employs a person who wants to exterminate all members of a religion?

By her vile, genocidal comment, Andrea Tantaros is no different from ISIL who behead people who don't agree with their f'cked up ideology.  And, does this supporter of genocide against all Islams aware that one of the part owners of Fox News (her employer) is an Islamist? That's right, Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud, is part owner of Fox News and he is a member of Islam.

I wonder what Lewis Alcindor (aka Karem Abdul Jabbar) and Cassius Clay (aka Muhammad Ali) think of Fox News allowing genocidal speech from one of their hosts?

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

UPDATE: This from Andrea Tantaros' Wiki Profile

On AUG 20, 2014 on Fox's edition of “Outnumbered,” the hosts discussed ISIS’ beheading of journalist James Foley, and co-host Andrea Tantaros conflated the small group of extraordinarily violent rebels with all of Islam. Andrea Tantaros said "You can’t solve it with a dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head. It’s the only thing these people understand. And all we’ve heard from this president is a case to heap praise on this religion, as if to appease them."
