Over the years Fox News has given their airtime to some of the most disreputable and irresponsible sleaze merchants to ever appear on television. From Ann Coulter to Erick Erickson to Glenn Beck to Sarah Palin and so many more. But it is hard to find anyone that sinks to the disgustingly low levels of the loathsome Lt. Col. Ralph Peters.

Peters is an unabashed hater of American principles and will stoop to any depth to slander those with whom he disagrees. His past commentaries have included arguing that the United States should fight back against our enemies with the same tactics they use against us – by which he means terror and torture. Peters also yearns for the blood of journalists whom he regards as terrorist worshiping infidels. He literally called for military attacks on media targets saying that…
“Rejecting the god of their fathers, the neo-pagans who dominate the media serve as lackeys at the terrorists’ bloody altar. [...] Although it seems unthinkable now, future wars may require censorship, news blackouts and, ultimately, military attacks on the partisan media.”
And in a fit of treasonous lust, Peters even took the side of our foes in Afghanistan by suggesting, without evidence, that a missing American soldier was a deserter and that “the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills,” presumably by killing him.
So it should come as no surprise that Peters has opened his repulsive crap-hole to utter more idiotic inanities, and that Fox News gave him the platform to do so. On this morning’s edition of America Live, Peters was invited to discuss the terror attack in the mall in Nairobi, Kenya. Of course, he is entirely incapable of focusing on any subject without diverting to some outlandish and imbecilic assault on President Obama or any of his other ideological enemies. Today was no exception when he went off on the President saying…
“You cannot deny that Al Qaeda is out to kill Christians and Jews and, by the way Shia Muslims, and any Sunni Muslims who don’t live up to their standards. It’s one of the most murderous cults in history and the Obama administration is still looking for common ground with these guys.”
From what chasm of bile-soaked stupid did Peters get the notion that Obama is looking for common ground with Al Qaeda? But he wasn’t done there. Peters went on to smear millions of people when he referenced what he called the “American left” and maligned them all as “apologists for terror.”
Obviously there are crackpots like Peters all over the place. They show up regularly on Glenn Beck’s cavalcade of crazy, or over at WorldNetDaily, or in Alex Jones’ conspiracy theory bunker. But for Fox News to repeatedly feature someone this revolting is inexcusable. Peters makes a habit of spewing the most abhorrent and nauseating rhetoric, and he keeps getting return invitations from Fox.
This is more evidence that Fox is not in any way a credible news enterprise. They have no more integrity than Beck or Jones or Coulter or the deranged troll that lives under Rupert Murdoch’s porch (oh wait, I already said Beck).
