News to me:
The way the website The FOX Nation
appears to work is that they basically provide short headline-summaries to stories running on other (very right wing) websites (e.g. World Net Daily, Newsbusters). But FOX Nation does provide a comment thread for the links. For one story, Why Does NBC News Attack Average Americans?
, there was this comment:
They [NBC] are in bed with the Chicago thugs [aka Obama]. WAKE UP AMERICA - I was listening to the Michael Slaughter radio show and our government during the Swine Flu Crisis tabled a bill (HJResolution 1) that will amend the Constitution on removing term limits on the Presidency. You can't trust the left wing media or the left wing Democrates.
WAKE UP AMERICA - The census takers (Federal Government) are taking GPS readings at your front door. This is scary. Next will come the micro chip in your body.
This comment, like many others at FOX News, appears to be serious. Without a doubt, we are witnessing The Paranoid Style in American Politics
How come Blogger no longer lets me make two paragraphs when following up italicized material with my snarky comments?
Implantable ID chips are not tin foil hat any more. It ain't as easy (or as useful) as advertised but there are many entities including governments and corporations that would love to have 24/7 tracking capability in or on people. In fact, the GPS in cell phones is conceivably that very thing today.
