Today a new blog was born: www.thefoxnation.com.
I just checked out Fox Nation. I almost had the proverbial ‘BIG ONE’ of Sanford and Son fame. Here is their stated purpose:
The FOX Nation Statement of Purpose
The Fox Nation was created for people who believe in the United States of America and its ideals, as expressed in the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Emancipation Proclamation.
It is a community that believes in the American Dream: Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. One that believes being an American is an honor, as well as a great responsibility—and a wonderful adventure.
This is a place for people who believe we live in a great country, a welcoming refuge for legal immigrants who want to contribute their talent and abilities to make our way of life even greater. We believe we should enjoy the company and support of each other, delighting in the creativity, ingenuity, and work ethic of one and all, while observing the basic rules of civility and mutual respect and, most importantly, strengthening our diverse society by striving for unity.
The Fox Nation is for those committed to the core principles of tolerance, open debate, civil discourse–and fair and balanced coverage of the news. It is for those opposed to intolerance, excessive government control of our lives, and attempts to monopolize opinion or suppress freedom of thought, expression, and worship.
We invite all Americans who share these values to join us here at Fox Nation.
Sounds harmless enough on paper, like apple pie and motherhood. However, the comments, this open debate that is mentioned, are all very conservative, as far as I can see. This must be the Obama backlash. Topics include Obama fires GM CEO, Rush says Hillary is twice the man Obama, Affirmative action for Muslims in the White House, and other provocative titles. Thousands of conservatives have already joined during the short 2 hour life of this website.
I await our readers’ opinions. It might be shooting one’s self in the foot to write about another blog, but this one is THE big one.
