Oh, those lazy, hazy, tase-y days of autumn:
A Fox News morning host has a novel idea to handle those pesky Code Pink protesters who disrupt political events and Congressional hearings: 50,000 volts of electricity.
This from the station that's also pushing Three-Wives Rudy. What exquisite family values they continue to display!
Brian Kilmead shared his ever-so-evolved views on crowd control Monday morning in a Fox & Friends discussion of a Code Pink-disrupted Hillary Clinton speech. His answer to annoying anti-war types? Tasers or Billy clubs.
So much for compassionate conservatives.
[Brian] Kilmead's Taser-lust came one day after a 20-year-old Maryland man died after being shocked by police.
The world's not violent enough. We need more. And who better to condone brutality than Faux News?
