The full segment is here. Only the first 1:50 in the clip I submitted but this has a lot more.

Dumbasses, 911 isn't there to take calls from the suffering and dying, it's there to fight terrorism. That's why they named it after the holiday, morons.
Learn American holidays before you pick up the phone, illegals.
Stop stealing white babies.

Kyle Kulinski isn't a particularly good host, and by now it shouldn't be news that these are not good people. (We crossed that point easily a decade ago, by which time conservatives had abandoned even the pretense of basic human decency.)
But five stars because it needed to be said.

My horrible boss is a huge FOX News fan and it gets reflected in her method of "debate."
Yesterday, she started spouting off about how the parents of all these South American children are just sending them off through Central America because they think Obama will give them automatic amnesty. I pointed out that, with rare exception, the kids had someone on this end ready to receive them such a parent or other family member but were intercepted before they got to them because the Feds are, in fact, doing a better job of policing the border.
She refused to hear it and ended the discussion by saying, "We're not supposed to discuss politics at work." That's the FOX style. Start a discussion by throwing out an inflammatory statement and end the discussion when people try to present verifiable facts that break said statement.
Long ago, I used to think FOX News was part of some big right-wing conspiracy, but it's not. It's just giving its audience what it wants. It's full of vacuous whores who don't really believe the shit they say. They just like being paid to be in front of a camera. I'm not worried about FOX, anymore. I worry about the people who like to watch FOX.
All three of the big cable news networks do this. We've reached a point in our culture where you have the option of deciding which version of whatever news stories you want to hear. News isn't news anymore; it's a blog post where the blogger doesn't have the obligation of linking to their sources.
Fox News just happens to be the most dangerous because the bottom half of the U.S. leaves it on all day long (even when they're not home) and regurgitates what they hear into an infosphere made up entirely of reactionary people who then drag their surrounding communities and Facebook pages further downward into an abyss of twisted facts and half-truths. We're plunging fast into American Civil War II, and nobody with the power to stop it is really helping.
There's a few people who discuss politics at my place of work. One of them is fixated on the idea of bringing our troops home from the Middle East and redeploying them to the Mexican border. Another has become convinced that the Tea Party is composed entirely of domestic terrorists who will shoot her grandkids because we're not wiretapping enough people. And my favorite guy, he doesn't usually discuss specific policies, but will use almost any excuse to start talking about how God does not forgive godless Evolutionists and how the time of punishment is close at hand.
The trick to dealing with these situations is to avoid conversation and mess around on the internet instead.
I got sort of in trouble for NOT joining one of these conversations once. The place was extremely liberal and it was like "you don't have an opinion on this?!?" I do but my job is on the phone. It's hard enough to sell subscriptions and play Crush the Castle 2 at the same time!

Compassion and care stops at a piece of paper. Welcome to America, fuckhead.

Hang in there guys. When the baby boomers start to die off en mass things will start to get better.

Yeah, the Reagan era kids will roll in like shark's teeth to replace the dying boomers.
Oh my god yes, gen x is going to harvest millennials like cattle. It will be glo... horrible.

Fox News starts their evil early and doesn't stop till long past the sun going down!

It's propagandistic bullshit for morons. It has existed and will always exist and because it has no value it will not last a second beyond whatever trumped-up political issue engendered it. But it will always be here, unfortunately, and taking new forms, because the morons won't ever go away. This is their mode of expression.

Hes not mad that they are saving dying spanish speakers, hes mad that taxes are used to subsidize non-citizen's health care.
And this hypothetical situation about going to a foreign country is retarded, hes visiting the foreign country legally as a tourist and leaving.
Yeah, I was impressed with his inability to form a good counterargument to something as straightforward as this.
