One of Those Unsurprising Moments

Bob Beckel

So Alana Horowitz of The Huffington Post wants us to know:

Fox News host Bob Beckel used a racial slur in a rant about China on ‘The Five’ Thursday.

By … the … Goddess! How dare he!

“The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.,” he said. “They have been, they will be and they can wait, they’re very patient. Do you know what we just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen — er, Chinese people — how to do computers and then they go back to China and hack into us.”

The other ‘Five’ hosts gaped in disbelief.

“That is going to end up on ‘The Soup,'” Andrea Tantaros said.

Uh-huh. A brief note to Alana Horowitz: It’s FOX News.

To the one, it isn’t as if we have not learned to expect open bigotry from FOX News; to the other, well, yeah, as offenses go, “Chinamen” just ain’t that far up the list. That is to say, well, yeah, It’s FOX fucking News!

What more do we expect?
