Watters’ Call To Kill: An assassin’s screed


You can tell which side “law enforcement” is on when white male rightwingnuts can openly incite assassination attempts with impunity, but calling for the trial, conviction and sentencing of rightwingnuts (i.e. giving them due process) is considered a “threat” or “violates terms of service” on websites.  When even that phrase, white male, will get you in trouble.

And we’re supposed to believe commercial and social media are “run by leftists”?

Fauci says Fox News’ Jesse Watters should ‘be fired on the spot’ for ‘kill shot’ comments

Dr. Anthony Fauci called out the “crazy” threats made against him by Fox News Channel’s Jesse Watters, saying Tuesday that Watters “should be fired on the spot.”

Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease doctor, responded in an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” to comments Watters made over the weekend to the conservative, pro-Trump youth group Turning Point USA.

Watters, a conservative provocateur, told the group to “ambush” Fauci in the streets and to record a rhetorical “kill shot.”

“That’s horrible. I mean, that is such a reflection of the craziness that goes on in society,” said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “The only thing that I have ever done throughout these two years is to encourage people to practice good public health practices, to get vaccinated, to be careful in public settings, to wear a mask, and for that you have some guy out there saying that people should be giving me a kill shot, to ambush me?”

In his remarks to the far-right youth group, Watters appeared to link Fauci to wild conspiracy theories that connect him to allegations of biowarfare.

“Now you’re going for the kill shot. The kill shot with an ambush [is] deadly, because he doesn’t see it coming,” Watters told the crowd.

Imagine the backlast if anyone said “verbally confront Watters and Tucker Carlson face to face!”  I would be taken as an incitement to commit violence.

Fox Nuisance isn’t news, it isn’t even opinion or propaganda anymore.  It’s the new Fiery Cross.
