UPDATED: Fox News 35 Orlando calls armed neo-Nazi org in Sanford, FL a ‘civil rights group’

By: Sunday April 8, 2012 4:02 pm

Wow. Breathtaking point of view from the editors at My Fox 35 Orlando (link dead now; screencap 3:50 PM, 4/8): Does anyone down there at FOX35 know how to use “the Google?” The National Socialist Movement is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Armed Neo-Nazis descend into Sanford, FL to show ‘solidarity with the white community’ there

Geraldo: the Hoodie = same level of responsibility as George Zimmerman for Trayvon’s murder

By: Friday March 23, 2012 9:31 am

And I guess wearing a skirt is an invitation to rape too, Geraldo. Where do you even begin with this statement? Rivera: “I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies. I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George [...]
