|FOX News: National Socialists are Civil Rights Advocates. In other news, Hitler was a misunderstood artist.|
A Fox Orlando affiliate described Neo-Nazis as “a civil rights group” on a television broadcast and online. The group of Neo-Nazis, known as the National Socialist Movement, has been conducting armed patrols of the streets of Sanford, Florida, the town where Trayvon Marting was shot dead.
The Fox Orlando affiliate, WOFL, aired a shockingly uncritical report of the group’s activities. The Fox reporter introduced the group by saying, “There’s another civil rights group in town.” She also conducts an interview with the group’s leader, Jeff Schoep, without challenging any of his claims about the nature and mission of the group. Watch it (via Little Green Footballs):
Okay, so, we all know that FOX isn't a real news organization and that it's sole purpose is to promote apocryphal, regressive nonsense to millions of deluded people who have very limited critical thinking skills, but this is pretty extreme even by their jingoistic standards. See, these really are neo-nazis who worship Hitler, hate Jews, and believe that a pure, white race is the only race that matters.
But wait, I'm confused: didn't the United States commit the entire country and countless lives to fight national socialist bastards in a little skirmish called World War II? And isn't calling nazis a "civil rights group" kind of like calling Hitler a misunderstood artist?
