50 Signs You Watch Too Much Fox News



Talking to people who religiously watch Fox News is better than space travel. You get to see what life is like on another planet without the risk of explosive decompression. But if you’re a Fox News devotee and insist that the rest of the world is crazy, this list is for you. Please, get help.

You might be watching too much Fox News if:

1. You are OUTRAGED at how Obama has shredded the Constitution but can’t name any rights you’ve lost since January 20, 2009.

2. You think record breaking cold weather in the middle of winter disproves “Global Warming.”

3. You think record breaking cold weather in the middle of winter disproves “Global Warming” but record breaking heat waves in the summer are just a fluke.

4. You hate Obama for the almost 1700 American lives lost in Afghanistan under his watch but have no idea how many died in Iraq before he took office (Hint: more than 4000).

5. You call Afghanistan “Obama’s War” but ignore the entire first eight years of it.

6. You think there’s no way Chris Christie knew about the scandal unfolding in his own office but Obama clearly knew what a small IRS office in Cincinnati was up to.

7. You think 4 Americans dying in Benghazi is “the worst tragedy since 9/11.“

8. You denounce Bill Clinton as an adulterer but give a pass to David Vitter and Mark Sanford because they apologized.

9. You are both convinced Obama is a secret Muslim and still go into a frenzy when someone mention Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

1. 40-50 could be their own list...

40. You think being asked to drink an extra glass of water a day is tyranny.

41. You think being asked to do more community service is tyranny.

42. You think being asked to help the poor get health insurance is tyranny.

43. You think being asked to let women choose to use birth control is tyranny.

44. You think being asked to respect other religions is tyranny.

45. You think being asked to leave homosexuals alone is tyranny.

46. You think being publicly shamed for your racism is tyranny.

47. You think not allowing criminals and the mentally ill to buy guns is tyranny.

48. You think allowing everyone to vote is tyranny.

49. You think Obama exercising his constitutional authorities is tyranny.

50. You grew up in America and think you actually understand what real tyranny is.

2. All correct except for #36

Fox Noise viewers don't get flu shots, because Obama is using them to implant microchips that will allow him to track our every move. Seriously.

14. Personally, I think we should throw their own propaganda tactics back in their faces

If they want to manipulate the masses into fear, two can play that game. In other words, if rethugs want a propaganda war, we ought to give them a propaganda war.

You can't play by Marquis of Queensbury rules when your adversaries are playing by Marquis de Sade rules. There's too much at stake for us to play nice while rethugs keep playing dirty pool.

15. No, I think the best thing is to keep on exposing their lies. People don't like to be scammed.

Always amazes me how very strong a person President Obama and many other good & decent people are, to have to govern and live happy, vs a trillion(s?) dollar Juggernaut of RW & religious crap.

17. Our challenge is to use emotional appeal to convey the truth

We have to resist the temptation to rattle off facts and debunk rethug lies using reason alone. Brainwashed people don't respond to reason; that's how come we have to appeal to their fears of losing democracy, freedom of movement, and subjugation by corporate rule to bypass their conscious minds.

For instance, we can come up with the idea that rethugs want to install hidden cameras in every bedroom so they can spy on married couples during their most intimate moments. Not that they would do that, just a hypothesis.

29. Cute


1. You are OUTRAGED at how Obama has shredded the Constitution but can’t name any rights you’ve lost since January 20, 2009.


I can name a few rights we all have lost, but starting on Sept 12, with the passage of the USPA... and Obama did not reverse course. That would be my rights to privacy while online.
