Fox praises white supremacist website.

Fox gets in a bit of Stormfront lovin', and calls it "a safe forum for people to use without fear of retaliation".

...which, of course, would be a whole lot cooler if those people weren't minority hating, neo-nazi white supremacists.

From the article:
Even though Stormfront was created by former Ku Klux Klansman Don Black, Kelso says their message isn’t one of hate. “We’re called anti-Semitic, we’re called neo-Nazi, we’re called racist [but] we’re none of that.”

Um...uh-huh. Ok. So, you're not anti-Semitic, but your forum has a post called "The Holohoax Thread" marked with a "sticky" by your site's moderators. How is defending the Nazis in any way connected with the supposed goal of defending the longterm existence of the white race? I mean, The Nation of Islam wants to emphasize the strength of the Black race and wants their members to marry each other and not outside their race, but do you see them calling for, denying, or defending any acts of genocide lately, do you?

And may I say that for a group that supposedly isn't neo-nazi, your choice of font for your logo leaves something to be desired?

For Fox to give them a free pass and allow the Stormfront's creator, a former head of the Ku Klux Klan, an unchallenged forum for positively promoting themselves... well, all I can say is that it leads to the conclusion that Fox News itself is all about promoting hatred. Fox News is, in fact, a hate network.

I would love to see Fox call for peace between races and religions, and repudiate anyone using their network for promoting hatred or violence... but hey, hate sells! Something tells me that it's not going to happen any time soon.
