Fox and Friends and the Flag, Oh My

Fox and Friends and the Flag, Oh My April 28, 2015

So you knew that when the bubble-brained triumvirate at Fox and Friends got wind of the police official in Miami who allegedly didn’t put her hand over her heart during the pledge of allegiance, it was going to be a major league derpfest. Here ya go:

Ortiz posted a video of Najiy on the police union’s YouTube channel, which showed her standing at attention as other officers placed their hands over their hearts.

However, Police Maj. Delrish Moss told The Miami Herald that Najiy was simply following military protocol, which states that one should “stand at attention, remain silent, and face the flag” when reciting the Pledge of Allegiance indoors.

“That’s exactly what she did,” Moss explained. “The Honor Guard follows U.S. military code. She was following U.S. military code. It had nothing to do with personal beliefs.”

But on Monday, the hosts of Fox & Friends suspected that there could be something more nefarious going on.

“The fraternal order of police president has suggested this could have been a religious decision,” Fox News host Steve Doocy noted. “He has suggested that perhaps she is a Muslim. That is not known.”

“If you’re a Muslim, I hope it still means you can salute the flag!” co-host Brian Kilmeade exclaimed.

“You know, that would be a great question to ask,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck agreed. “And so is it our right to know why someone would opt-out of that? How does that make you feel if that is indeed your district? Would you want to know?”

You know what it makes me feel? Absolutely nothing. Could not possibly give a fuck. You know what your simpleminded pearl-clutching makes me feel? A whole lot more.
