This is my first diary.

After a search, I have seen nothing written on this here at dkos.  
This HAS to have resonance, but far too quickly in my opinion it has gone down the news hole.  
I'm still shaking from it days later.

I am blown away - I must not be a good learner - by the gossamer-thin layer of overt, sickening racism and anti-American hatred, spilling out of Fox News' John Gibson's mouth the other night (Fri, May 12th) and if you listen closely to the light-hearted chuckles of the staff in the background.  This has somehow not made a big ripple in the blogosphere.  
Bottom-line: he is telling his viewers, in citing a recent report, that if they don't have enough babies that "You know what that means?  Twenty-five years from now the majority of the population is Hispanic."

Oh no!  Not that!!  

Gibson specifically means more babies from white people.  He doesn't hide it.

Perhaps he doesn't quite get that we are all Americans.  He's scared of his own kind being taken over in some way or manner as if Hispanics might not be up to his real-America standard/potential.
It's pathetic.  He either knows what he's spewing or, or...  nah, he knows what he's spewing.  I can almost see his audience nodding their small heads in agreement.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
