The viewers of Fox News can always be counted on to say the vilest things at the most inappropriate of times, and they certainly didn’t slack on the hate when news broke of a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida this morning.
After the incident, deemed the “deadliest mass shooting in America,” racists and homophobes ran to their electronic devices to give their opinions on the recently departed victims of today’s massacre that left 50 dead and 50+ wounded.
The shooter, Omar Mateen, was apparently set off after seeing two men kiss while on a family outing, according to his father. Mateen also dialed 911 to proclaim his undying devotion to terrorist group ISIS before the massacre began.
Below are some examples of the disgusting comments left on Fox News’ website:
Idiots like a1c3c0 attempt cleverness by saying things like, “Being denied a wedding cake doesn’t seem so bad now, does it?” and “Yiippeeee,!!!!!! Let more immigrants come!! USA will be more “integrated”!!!”
Rigel7 ignorantly blames a lawsuit filed against an anti-gay bakery in Oregon on the terror attack that killed 50 people. To creeps like that, slaughtering 50 gay people is punishment enough for the crime of fighting to equal rights.
The idiocy that went into comments, like the one above by LPersonnel, that reads: “The devolution of America is in full force. I guess there are some that are tired of the gay and transgender platforms being shoved on the American people.”
Some pro-Trump chants like “NO MORE MUSLIMS!!!!!!!!!!!!” were followed up by even dumber comments like, “Deport them ALL!!!!”
There were tidbits of logic from some of the still admittedly homophobic readers like Tietrack who said, ” I find two men kissing in public repugnant too but I don’t shoot them.”
Welcome to Donald Trump’s America.
