Fox News Says that Michael Vick Should Have Been Given the Death Penalty

Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson followed the company’s interesting tradition the other day by making one of the most distasteful and egregious comments in recent media history. Filling in for Sean Hannity, Carlson said that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick should have been executed for dogfighting.

"I’m a Christian, I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances," Carlson said. "But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did in a heartless and cruel way. And I think, personally, he should’ve been executed for that. He wasn’t, but the idea that the President of the United States would be getting behind someone who murdered dogs? Kind of beyond the pale."

    What matter of child lies in the skin of Fox so called men
    Are they that upset about the lynching of our kin who were their kin too
    Micael Vick is paying for all the black men who have scaled to the top
    Men like Dr. King , Malcom X , Dr. Watlins who they could not stop
    See Micael’s eyes , there lies the blood of Kings and Queens who discoveries
    allow Fox guys to live high beyond most people’s grasp
    I ask are dogs more important than the lives of little girls and boys who starve , who gasp their last breath because pollution and high cost of living. Micael Vick is paying for the poor of all races because the Fox boys care little for anyine who is outside their door.
    Hold your head high like the king you are Micael. Fannie Lou Hamer smiles , Nat Turner smiles , we are all in your corner . Be who you are and know the more thet try to put you down God has your back and you stay on solid ground.
    Know that they must react and reject for as Micael Jackson said ” The Man In The Mirror ” has to one day go head to head.
    Peace and love Miicael and to you Dr. Watlins for keeping us alert and informed.
