The latest travesty of justice celebrated by Fox News is the horrific use of excessive force on a group of peaceful protesters at UC Davis. Lt. John Pike of the Campus Police casually and callously sprayed students with an abrasive substance that has been known to cause permanent harm and even death.
Fox News typically sided with the perpetrators of torture. Just as they cheer the use of waterboarding and drool over the prospect of nuking everything from Iran to Tijuana (and even San Francisco), Fox News embraces the police state oppression of citizens who oppose the economic rape of our nation by wealthy corporations and their benefactors in Washington.
Recently Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly told her colleague Bill O’Reilly that pepper spray was just “a food product, essentially.” O’Reilly agreed with Kelly that the police did nothing wrong and he went further to make the absurd claim that “I don’t think we have the right to Monday morning quarterback the police.”
We don’t? Does Bill O’Reilly believe that we live in a society where law enforcement authorities are indisputable? Isn’t that the sort of tyranny that he constantly (and falsely) accuses President Obama of attempting to enact?
The notion that pepper spray is merely a food product, or that waterboarding is just a bath, or that mustard gas is simply a condiment, is evidence of the brutal ignorance that has infected so much of modern conservatism. But it is also evidence of their obsession with diets that are harmful to your health. In the past few months Fox has published numerous articles castigating any effort to educate the American people about the benefits of good eating habits. Fox is similarly dismissive of any effort to protect children from harmful foods. Here is a brief compilation of some of the headlines from their gastronomic propaganda:
- This Thanksgiving, Media Still Stuffed with Food Police Message
- NYC Food Police Reach New Low
- Even Obama’s School Potato Bill Fails
- Liberals Going After Hot Dogs
- SF Food Police Urge Meat-Free Mondays
- Minneapolis Schools Ban Chocolate Milk
- Food Police Try to Retire Ronald McDonald
- Obama Identifies the Enemy: Tony the Tiger
- Food Police Kill Cap’n Crunch
- Obama Administration Getting Ready to Ditch Food Pyramid
- Nanny Staters Crack Down on School Chocolate Milk
- The Food Police Are Back! Coke and Pepsi Banned in S.F.!
- Obama Food Police Messes With Your Chips
- Food Police Attack Chocolate Milk
- SF Hold First Public Hearing to Ban Happy Meals
- Tater Nots: Gov’t Eyes School Lunch Potato Ban
- Ronald McDonald Under Attack
With their abundant expertise in the culinary arts, it was only a matter of time until Fox launched their own show dedicated to diet and cooking. And now, with Lt. John Pike of the UC Davis Campus Police, they even have a star talent to helm the program. So stayed tuned to Fox News for the spring premiere of Pike’s Palate.

the Occupy whiners should stop complaining, don’t they know pepper spray is a vegetable?
Then they won’t mind proving their point by getting sprayed in the face and mouth with the stuff.
This kind of obtuse, politically charged, disingenuous rationalization is a favorite thing of FNC, isn’t it? It’s a food product, huh? That must be why POLICE use it to SUBDUE people who aren’t following commands. Does that mean police are stupid for using it? Does that mean it’s not effective? Does that mean it wouldn’t reduce the both of them to gagging, vomiting, crying puddles of pain writhing on the floor? IT’S A GODDAMN RIOT CONTROL WEAPON!! Let’s not forget that THEY WERE SITTING ON A FUCKING SIDEWALK. Clearly the police had to put them down before the police got hurt. I’m having an angry month.
Not at all surprised by this. Actually, I’m shocked BillO didn’t invite Lt. Fascist on the show so that Megyn could fellate him live on the air while Bill goose-steps around the studio…
Yeah, we know. According to tighty righties, pizza and pepper spray are now vegetables.
