All know I'm a fan of free speech.  I'm first to use my free speech rights to point out to others, those falsely calling "fire" in a crowded theater....

We have all heard since growing up that it is illegal to falsely call "Fire" in a crowded theater.... So in a battle between determining legitimate free speech, and calling "Fire" in a crowded theater, where does Fox News fit in....

Obviously the latter is all they do....

In politics, crazies do play a valuable role; each party relies on their own... For one, they are ever watchful of the other side.  Rarely will anything get past either one's crazies or the other... And we, the citizens who wake up, drive the nation's economic engine, come home eat, and sleep, don't have to worry over seeking out every little thing... That's covered.

Fox has seriously helped the right.  They have given the right a platform which it previously didn't have.  After all, facts always have a leftest bias.  Though that sounds political to neophytes, it tends to be true.....  

Is tobacco healthy? No.
Do women enjoy rape?  No.
Does a woman's biology destroy all incoming sperm when raped, thereby preventing pregnancy? No
Are blacks more stupid than whites?  No.
Was the world created in 6, 24 hour days?  No.
Is man made global warming made up?  No...

See, facts tend to have a liberal bias, which is why, to ingratiate themselves with a conservative public, the producers at Fox News have to distort facts to keep up their charade... Now there is no rule on requiring every American to tell everything factually and honestly. If that premise were so, for one, there would be no divorce courts... Likewise, literature which is the art of embellishment where points are assessed for cleverness on how well certain planks are told, could not exist.

So it is hard to say that Fox News should be held to any different standard than say, I for example... Except for that pesky adage saying that one cannot cry "Fire" in a crowded theater, causing dangerous panic when there is no threat.....

And that is where I'm beginning to think Fox News has crossed that line...

Two recent events triggered this... and trust me, when it comes to possibly misinterpreting the Constitution, I'm very slow to be triggered...

youtube= Murrieta Immigration Protest

And another was this....

The truth is, it’s the protesters who should have been rounded up. Blame my upbringing as the son of a cop, but where I come from, if you block a federal law enforcement vehicle and use mob rule to interfere with law enforcement officers, they handcuff you and toss you in a cell.

The American precedent for the altercation shown in the first video was set by the colonial residents of Boston, I believe resulting in 6 deaths including one black man. Without which, we may literally have not become a nation and remained British, understanding the way that event rippled its way into the Revolutionary War ....  It is both rebellion, and yet is protected under the first amendment.

The precedent for the sentiment expressed in the second item, keeping Federal law and order, came from George Washington himself. who as president called the army together from various militias near DC, appointed himself as its head, and led them on his white horse up into western Pennsylvania, where a similar hick army, copied almost exactly like the TEA PARTY today, was engaged in protesting Congress's levies on their whiskey pretty similar to those dummies protesting the $1 million owed by the Bundy farm....

The question is really this... Which type of America do the majority of the rest of us want?

One run by kooks to whom the government has to kowtow, and acquiesce in its every response,
... or
one run by regular people appreciative of law and order and appeals and all that stuff that makes America run...
Well. Which of these two do you want?  After all, you ARE America.

Fox News cheer leads the first. Nowhere does it mention that these are homeless kids on a bus, kids whose parents paid smugglers (the kids don't have money), kids who had no choice (mom, I don't want to go), no independence, kids caught up in a massive political and international crises way beyond their understanding....

I hail the second.  It is sickening to see Americans so callous over any children's plight, that they think is it cool to block  and intimidate little kids from being reprocessed and sent home... to revel in their prejudice, more or less to say "look, we're da' boss, look how tough we are", we can stop a bus of little kids; and shout... USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA, USA......

Personally I'm embarrassed.  Just like when I sht and see this big long black thing curled up in the toilet. Shudder. Shudder. Yes, I know it is part of life's process, .. doesn't mean I'm proud of it....

But for people to actually hold such their excrement in their hands, up high, proud of it?  Shouting USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA. USA....   can only come because someone is encouraging it... I've been around people for years.. KKK meetings in the 50's were like that... But they were people encouraged by Grand Dragon. They were nice people outside the meetings... Likewise the pre-teen German kids at the Nuremberg rallies... they grew up as nice kids, but someone exploited and encouraged them...

Do you know why those children were on the bus?  Not the immediate reason, but the overall big reason? They were there for the exact same reason relatives of mine died fighting... because of what the USA represents... They were sent here, because outside our borders, the USA represents opportunity.  It represents freedom. It represents right over wrong.  It represents good people governing themselves for what is best for them....

Good people who sometimes will do bad things if pushed hard enough... That photographer was good. Watching the video I sensed a sincerity in those people waving signs who really thought they were doing America a favor by turning away homeless little children from entering their town.... Who does that?  I can only believe the real culprit is not them, but should instead, be that person lying to them. cajoling them, egging them on, rewarding their bad behavior, pushing them foreward... Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it...

We are being judged around the world by this disgusting video... Little kids... barred by a rebellion of fat slobs in American flag shirts yelling:  USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA,......  

I only ask two things... One is to the world judging us... "Look" I say to them... "We don't judge you by your sht, if we happen to come across it, say if you forgot to flush".... "Don't judge us for ours"....

And two, is: America, we've got to do something about Fox News... They are protected under the 1st Amendment (and should be) so even I think it is wrong for our government to interfere with what they say...We cannot start that precedent.  But there are 315 million of us, and there is nothing wrong with us taking this fight into our own hands, outside of government.... We can bankrupt them. We have that power....

This is a human thing, not partisan. Certainly not democratic.  This is national disgust at how low Fox News has brought America by willfully withholding proper facts, and subsequently creating huge crises out of nothing.....

For it to knowingly shout: "Americans Unite! That Crazy Black President Is Now Busing "Criminals" INTO YOUR BEDROOM COMMUNITIES! FIGHT THEM. FIGHT THEM NOW!.... "  is pretty similar to yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater... Criminals? Because their parents  put them on a bus? Deportation centers? Same as your bed room?  Crazy Black President?  Yeah, that one who's doing His job while no Republican is doing theirs?

I think there is enough evidence around us to say they are doing much more than stirring the pot.... There is more volatility now than in the 00's. the 90's, the 80's...  Flush Rush, has led the way teaching us exactly how to do it... Fox News doesn't need to suffer total catastrophic damage to force change.  In the corporate environment, just a tiny loss of 1% can cause executives to face life changing decisions caused by their stockholders...

There are 315 million of us... We can do 1%....
I know somebody out there reading this watches the Fox Morning Show... All they need to do is write down or lift video of who advertised and then post it daily... Monday through Friday...

These are the FOX blacklisted advertisers today....  It would be helpful if a contact twitter address was added... Then we all tweet the corporate site of the product paying to be on Fox.
 

"Oh, my, goodness, Boycott this product: ____ It paid to be on Fox's morning show!!!...."
Now one or two messages from individuals won't do it... but a 1000 will get a twitter monitor's attention. "Hey boss, check this out"... But it can't stop there, we all need to be involved. Remember, there are 315 million of us... Help us  If we are ever going to get our America back, we have to get past that point where we all think we have to shout at each other, then pound our chests and go USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA,....

There are ways of talking civilly. But they won't happen when someone is in the middle lying to one side about the other...  If we truly want a better America, that middle instigator is the true enemy.  It never was the ones who had themselves stirred up to cause trouble... But it should be that one who is doing the stirring, who should be taken out first.....

Let's begin and get this started. It can only work as a "We, The People" project. It can only work by hitting them in the pocket book... Who advertised on them today...?  Just report it.

Americans don't need a new KKK... Do what you can; get rid of Fox today......

It is a movement neither Democratic nor Republican. It is about turning our nation's values back, towards being the type of nation to which all these immigrants want to come in the first place... Because when not forced against each other... we are one  hell of a great people....

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.
