Hillary’s Hate spreads to Fox

Liz Trotta

Well I thought that the flames on this story had died down but it looks like someone keeps fanning the coals. Veteran reporter, editor and contributor to T.V. ‘s Fox news Liz Trotta reporting on Sen. Clinton’s assassination remarks seems to have made news herself when she joked about “knocking off Obama.”

A bad idea is like a virus whether intended or not Sen. Clinton dropped an idea into the social psyche that is still working itself through.

Like a bad cold Fox’s Trotta, a former Washington Times editor and three-time Emmy winner apparently infected with the thought of assassination attempted to make light of the situation adding her own comic twist with a play on Sen. Obama’s name apparently confusing it with Osama and then suggesting that maybe both Osama and Obama should be “knocked off” in keeping with the spirit of Sen. Clinton’s reference of assassination. (see video)

In a later interview with Fox Ms. Trotta is asked to further analyze Sen. Clinton’s assassination remarks and compare them to the Senator’s explanations and apologies.

After which Ms. Trotta was ask about her own remarks to which Ms. Trotta apologized. She intimated that diversity was a problem in this year’s campaign and because of it people were going to have to be careful of what they say. (see video)

I’m not so sure that people have to be careful of what they say Ms. Trotta but here’s a quick rule of thumb, just steer away from intimating the death of a rival candidate and do not attempt to tie a candidate’s name association with known terrorists or to religious extremism.

You do that and you should be okay.

And the same applies to you Sen. Clinton!

    I really resent the way you tarred FOX in this piece. I do not see FOX as promoting Hate Speech. Just as the Bible accurately quotes the lies of Satan when necessary, FOX quotes the Lies and Hate Speech of Hillary. This in no way implies that the Bible promotes Satanism, nor does it imply that FOX promotes Hate Speech.

    As to my position on the assassination of any politician especially and including Bill Clinton, I do not want to see him poisoned, shot, bludgeoned, medidical malpracticed upon, or harmed in any way other than by Bill Clinton himself. When Bill Clinton dies, I want the World to see that, from the autopsy of Bill Clinton's corpse that it was ravaged exclusively by VD and Drug Abuse as Testimony his Moral Fibre, the very same way that Nietzsche left this world.

    As per my attitude towards Obama, this should sum it up:
    Once at a social gathering, Gladstone said to Disraeli, "I predict, Sir, that you will die either by hanging or of some vile disease". Disraeli replied, "That all depends, sir, upon whether I embrace your principles or your mistress."

  2. You know......something appears to be missing from this campaign nonsense, while all the bickering over stupid comments continues throughout the whole thing.

    I think what's missing may have something to do with concrete solutions to fixing some of the real problems facing this country. No more middle class before long. There may just be two classes, the Greedy and the Needy.

    In the meantime, we are not being dazzled by brilliance, just baffled with bulls**t.

  3. What's amazing is Democrats buying all of this and thinking that Independents or questionable Republicans are going to peel off to support either Obama or Clinton.
