    Is Fox crazy or just stupid? She isn't patriotic because she does not wear red, white and blue?

    Did they call Nastia Liukin unpatriotic for wearing a shocking pink outfit when she won the gold medal in Beijing in 2008?

    Hmmm, our soldiers do not wear red, white and blue either ... I guess to Fox they are not patriotic either.

    At no point in the video clip you linked to did anyone say that Gabby Douglas wasn't patriotic for not wearing red, white, and blue. Most of the video was complaining about U.S. fans that aren't chanting U. S. A. !! There was a short bit about the guest lamenting the fact that the U.S. athletes are not wearing red, white, and blue. But nothing about Gabby being unpatriotic.

    You've really got to quit posting trollish comments like this.

    Note, the title was not mine. I cut and pasted it.

    There are others who disagree with you. Here are some article titles:

    I guess that is enough. So I ask again, "Is Fox crazy or just stupid?"

    You may post as many links as you wish. Actually reading and viewing the content instead of the headlines is crucial, however.

    In the context of the accusation "Fox News says Gabby Douglas not Patriotic" they are neither crazy or stupid since they didn't say anything like it.

    The article gave me the impression that it was written to meet some anti- Fox News quota.

    Although many say they are for rugged individualism, they really want conformity to their vision of what an American should be. Same as those who day they want smaller government, but cry for the nanny state to police personal intimate behavior and individual morality. Freedom to do as I say, is not freedom at all, but yet another form of tyranny.
