The seething hatred of President Obama by Fox News came gushing out this morning by one of the network’s most notorious hatchet men. Lt. Col Ralph Peters (whose name translates to “vomiting penises” in Slanglish) appeared on Stuart Varney’s Fox Business program to discuss/bash Obama’s Oval Office speech on terrorism last night.
Peters was virtually spitting teeth (video below) as he was unable to control his most primitive tendencies. In an otherwise mundane response to Varney’s inquiry as to “What was your commentary as the President’s speech unfolded?” Peters launched into a profane rant that barely addressed anything about the speech itself.
Peters: Well, first of all, he keeps speaking about “We can’t give in to our fears. Don’t be afraid.” Look Mr. President, we’re not afraid. [shouting] We’re angry. We’re pissed off. We’re furious. We want you to react. We want you to do something. You’re afraid. I mean this guy is such a total pussy it’s stunning.
Really? The President who presided over the capture and execution of Osama Bin Laden; who as Commander-in-Chief as ordered more than 8,000 airstrikes against ISIS; whose military missions have dropped more than 20,000 bombs on enemy targets; who has killed thousands of ISIS fighters, including many of its leaders; this president is a pussy? What Peters, and every right-winger, are too ignorant to acknowledge is that Obama has been executing a plan that has had much success. Yet his critics keep blathering about irrelevancies. Is it because he refuses to send more Americans onto a battlefield where they would become sitting ducks for a guerrilla insurgency? Or because he expects the people of the region to take responsibility for the ground war against an enemy that is murdering them?
Peters goes on to lambaste Obama in the fashion that birthers have long used to “otherize” him as an alien creature saying that “The American people, whom he does not know in any sort of intimate manner,” want action. He then rattles off s a series of assertions that the President cares more about our enemies than ourselves. Eventually, Varney steps in to daintily scold Peters for his potty mouth.
Varney: I can tell you are super-angry, and I asked you what your reaction was, but I gotta call you, you can’t use language like that on the program. OK. I’m Sorry.
He’s sorry? What for? Peters comes completely unglued with an offensive rant and Varney apologizes for chastising him, while excusing the outburst due to Peters’ anger. What makes this even more ridiculous is that Varney allows Peters to continue for a bit and then…
Varney: Ralph, I’m sorry. I’ve got to interrupt again. You used some very strong language there about the President of the United States, and I’m the anchor of Varney & Co. and I have to ask you, either you should apologize for that or take it back.
Peters chose only to apologize. But you have to wonder what happened in between Varney’s first redress of the foul language and his subsequent request for an apology. It seems likely that someone in the control room pulling Varney’s strings gave him a directive to force a more formal atonement. While Fox’s audience likely shares Peters’ crude disgust for all things Obama, the network may have to tread lightly so as not to offend their glassy-eyed, Christianist viewers.

For the record, Peters has proven to be one of the most repugnant individuals to ever appear on Fox News (and that’s saying something). The Ralph Peters Story is one of truly nauseating notions that include: advocating military strikes on the American media; that there aren’t enough civilian casualties in war; that the U.S. should be more like ISIS; that the Taliban should have been allowed to execute an American soldier; and many more horrendous pronouncements. Consequently, this frothing tirade is not particularly surprising. And it is typical of the irrational loathing that is broadcast on Fox News every day.
[Update:] Fox News has issued a press release stating that Ralph Peters has been suspended for two weeks due to his “inappropriate and unacceptable” comments. Fox also suspended contributor and fill-in cohost on Outnumbered, Stacey Dash, for saying that the President “doesn’t give a shit” about terrorism. It should be noted that these two contributors are often not on the air for two weeks or more, so this “punishment” is purely symbolic.
Also notable is that Fox has not reported the news of these suspensions and they have not posted video of Peters’ appearance on Varney & Co. It’s too bad that Fox will punish people for bad language, but not for bad information. Let’s see if they suspend Donald Trump who has been saying “bullshit” and “chickenshit” in his stump speeches lately.

Barack Obama has had a lot of firsts – now he can add being called a pussy on national television to the list. Congratulations. He certainly does bring out the best in people.
You would never say the same thing about a Republican president.
What Steve means, but won’t say is that Obama “certainly does bring out the KKK in people.” Because he relates.
You are lying once again. That KKK comment reminds us all once again that left-wingers think they can “win” debates just by calling their opponents racists and haters, all the while ignoring the hatred they spew to begin with.
I use different language for them – pussy wouldn’t be accurate. I’m not sure if I’m more sad for what we’ve become or because it’s so true.
In other words, you employ a double standard.
Sure I would — The Shrub was an incompetent pussy, and The Trumpkin is a hooge racist and bigoted pussy-in-waiting.
And why don’t you send Obama a card with your sentiments. I’m sure he really cares what you think, stevie.
Can’t say that about you. Not only are you the not the first person called a pussy on the internet, pussy, but it’s not even the first time you’ve been called a pussy.
I don’t think any other president in history has been subjected to such vile, naked, disgusting hatred and disrespect than Barack Obama. Gee, wonder what’s so different about him from the previous 43 people in that office? Can’t quite put my finger on it…
Calls to assassinate President Bush were everywhere – protests, Air America and Nova M talk radio, there was even a mock documentary that depicted President Bush being assassinated. Were you in a coma between 2001 and 2009?
Really? Your memory is short. How about G.W. Bush ? The left has to use the racist card ever time it loses a debate about Obama. President Obama and his policies have been a total failure. Obama’s air strikes consist of trying to hit a 2 guys in Toyota pickups with fighter jets. He can’t even stop the violence in his hometown of Chicago, 20 to 30 black kids shoot and kill each other every week and he and Michelle are concerned about getting more vegetables in kids diets.
“…these two contributors are often not on the air for two weeks…”
There’s another lie from Mark. Ralph Peters is on all FNC shows every single week. I regularly see Stacy Dash on “Outnumbered” and “The Kelly File”.
“Ralph Peters is on all FNC shows every single week.” Hmm. Not to out-troll the troll, but could you quantify that statement? Otherwise you are a liar, liar, pants on fire.
I stated it quite clearly. Ralph Peters is on all the prime-time shows every week. All of them. I watch these shows. So you are the one who is lying.
Scottie, Scottie, Scottie — relax — looks like you’re off your meds again. Just go back to your FAUX basement and spend some time with your cat watching Mayhem Kelly.
And as for “strategic analyst” Little Kernel Ralf, he’s an abject racist and bigoted fool who spends far too much behind his armored desk pushing paper — just like he did in his military career. Oh, and the delightful Ms. Stacey — her earlier movie “Clueless” just about says it all, but it works at FAUX.
‘I regularly see Stacy Dash on “Outnumbered” and “The Kelly File”.’ Really? How often? And what is your definition of “regularly”? Twice a week? More than twice a month? If your definition of “regularly” doesn’t match mine then I’m afraid that makes you a liar. Your prompt reply is appreciated.
I watch these shows, so I know how often they appear. It’s apparent Mark only reads other left-wing websites, puts his idiotic spin on the issues and does it all while rarely watching the shows.
I’m sorry, liar, but that’s just not good enough.
Yes, it is. You just can’t accept the truth.
I didn’t lie about anything. I asked you for hard information and all you can provide are vague generalities based on a sample of one (you). So I’m afraid that it is you who is the liar, liar.
Since Scott is too stupid to get the info, I went to Fox’s website and did the calculation. Since September Peters has appeared on Fox on average every 10 days. That’s an average, so some lapses were longer (up to 20 days) and some were shorter.
It’s safe to say that during the holidays his appearances would be fewer (unless he hates Christmas). So Peters will likely miss between 0 and 2 appearances. Oh my, what a severe punishment.
You are lying again, Mark, both about my intelligence and about the frequency of Peters’ appearances. Either that website is incomplete. or your math sucks.
I always thought the only thing they censored you for on Fox Spews was saying good things about Obama. So, does this mean that Fox Spews DOES have standards? Of course not — we know better. Besides, Peters will certainly be back before the two week period is over – they need his credibility. Not sure about Ms. Clueless, but then, we probably won’t even miss her…
Well, since, once again, you refuse to provide evidence for your statement, Scott, and Mark provides ample evidence for his, I think we know who we trust more in this situation…
Plus, of course, Fox Spews’ frequently reported lapses of the truth, common sense, and moral standards.
Mark never provides ample evidence of anything except his overwhelming hate.
And Scott is talking about himself again. Go figure…
His belly button has eluded him once again and apparently he has nothing else to do.
