No, that title is not snark.

TPM

Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes is big on security. And as he sees it, according a report in Rolling Stone, the two biggest threats to his personal well-being are al-Qaeda terrorists and "those gays."
Barricading himself behind a massive mahogany desk, Ailes insisted on having "bombproof glass" installed in the windows - even going so far as to personally inspect samples of high-tech plexiglass, as though he were picking out new carpet. Looking down on the street below, he expressed his fears to Cooper, the editor he had tasked with up-armoring his office. "They'll be down there protesting," Ailes said. "Those gays."

Those gays. Reminds me of Donald Trump and "The blacks".

Original story came from Rolling Stone

Some more from the article.

"One man has established a culture for 1,700 people who believe in it, who follow it, who execute it," Limbaugh once declared. "Roger Ailes is not on the air. Roger Ailes does not ever show up on camera. And yet everybody who does is a reflection of him."

And

Ailes is certain that he’s a top target of Al Qaeda terrorists. “You know, they’re coming to get me,” he tells friends. “I’m fully prepared. I’ve taken care of it.

So why is it that Fox sells fear 7x24? Maybe it's because the Chairman is afraid 7x24. Why is Fox so willing to lie and deceive? Because Roger Ailes is afraid that if his kind lose power they will get him.

Those gays. Those Muslims. Them. They are out to get Roger Ailes.

I wonder if perchance Roger Ailes feels like perhaps he's done something to inspire a little rage? A little hatred?

Rather than washing his hand relentlessly to get the blood off, Lady McAiles barricades himself behind security guards and bulletproof glass and carries a gun everywhere. But either way, the spot is not coming off.

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.
