Fox News and Long Beards

The father of the POW that was returned a few days ago in a prisoner swap with the Taliban grew a long beard in honor of his captured son. But the Fox News anchors — and I mean almost all of them — are flipping out about it, calling him a Muslim terrorist based just on the beard.

Funny how they think long beards are patriotic and American when it’s someone they agree with. And I’ll just leave this here:

    I’m getting a 404 on the second picture. Not sure if that’s for real, or just part of the general slowness I’ve been experiencing with FTB all morning.

    OMG, according to Fox News Duck Dynasty must be a terrorist organization! Send those bearded traitors off to Gitmo.

    I didn’t know Jesus was a Muslim. I bet he wasn’t white either…

  • busterggi

    The Robertsons don’t have beards, thats duckweed.

  • Modusoperandi

    To be fair, he must be a Muslin who hates America and everything it stands for. Because Obama.

    @1. Trebuchet : “I’m getting a 404 on the second picture. Not sure if that’s for real,”

    Same here.

    Of course, when it comes to beards there’s ZZ Top and Abraham Lincoln* and, oh yeah, Jesus amonmg many other non-Muslim beardies as well.

    In addition to the fictional mostly heroic commander Riker, Dr Zarkhov and Commander Sheridan from various SF series also.

    * Plus Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B.Hayes & James A. Garfield – a hattrick of bearded POTUS’es from March 1869 till Sept 1881 – and all Republicans at that. Go figure.

    To be fair, this kind of hypocritical idiocy is in the job description. Because Roger Ailes.

    No, no, Ed, the Duck Dynasty guys have whiskers! Thanks be to George Carlin for making that vital distinction.

  • karmacat

    This is a little bit of a tangent but there was a good op ed piece calling out Allen West for his remarks about the POW’s father and saying West is causing damage to the GOP

    But Obama hasn’t got a beard!

    Probably to distract attention from Benghazi.

    @10: I was SO disappointed that there weren’t open comments on that article! They’d have been spectacular.

    Just flipped open my dictionary to the entry for “hypocrites” and guess whose picture was there?

  • howardhershey

    You say tomato; I say to-mah-to. You say scary Muslim beard; I say patriotic whiskers.
