Fox News Host Shouts Down Hate Speech
Posted on Jun 12, 2006
Watch as Fox host Julie Banderas drowns out a vile anti-gay hatemonger. (Sort of a straw-man target, to be sure, but it’s nice to see Fox News on the correct side of the cultural divide for a change. (Video hoster: Johnny Dollar’s Place.)
Huffinton Post’s Eat the Press:
This video shows FNC host Julie Banderas in a screaming match with religious-extremist-hate-spewing guest Shirley Phelps-Roper on FNC’s “The Big Story Weekend.” Phelps-Roper is the daughter of virulent homophobe-zealot Fred Phelps and a member of his Westboro Baptist Church, which pickets funerals of fallen U.S. soldiers. Choice heated exchange:
PHELPS-ROPER: This nation is full of idolatry, full of adultery…
BANDERAS: Full of insane people like yourself ma’am!
PHELPS-ROPER: ...sodomy, fornication…You’re proud! Proud of your sins! You can’t do enough sinning! You think gay pride, bimbo.
BANDERAS (angrily): Oh! Okay!
PHELPS-ROPER: You have sinned away your day of grace.
BANDERAS: Okay, YOU are an abomination.
