FOX NEWS ADVOCATES FOR DEATH CAMPS: ya no really


Inquisitr - Fox News wants Ebola victims sent to special FEMA camps. Yeah, nothing to add from me here:

While Fox News has worried in the past that President Barack Obama is using the Federal Emergency Management Agency to create concentration camps to confine American citizens, a similar step is exactly what Fox contributor Stacey Dash wants implemented, as a response to the yet-to-materialize mass outbreak of Ebola in America.

The 47-year-old actress-turned-commentator, best known for her roles in the film and TV series Clueless, said on the Fox News panel discussion program Outnumbered on Monday that every American state should create “a special facility” just for people who might have Ebola.

[...]

During the same Ebola discussion, other Fox News panelists suggested that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani should be appointed Surgeon General — despite a complete absence of medical background or qualifications — and that Americans should not go hospitals at all when they are sick, with Ebola or anything else.

[...]

Harris Faulkner, another co-host of the Fox News show, accused President Obama of “really letting us down” by allegedly failing to appoint a surgeon general who could oversee measures to stop the spread of Ebola.

But Obama did in fact nominate a doctor, Vivek Murthy, to fill the vacant surgeon general position earlier this year. But Murthy’s nomination was blocked by Senate Republicans who objected to Murthy’s view that guns pose a public health threat.

Gun violence kills approximately 30,000 Americans every year, compared to the one person who has ever died in the United States due to Ebola.

Fox News panelist Andrea Tantaros, however, suggested Giuliani as a surgeon general nominee that Republicans could support because, she said, when Giuliani was mayor of New York, he “put together and extensive set of doomsday plans for this city.”

Yup, still no additional sarcasm from me.

Sometimes, just backing off and letting an idiot speak for themselves is its own kind of sarcasm.
