Little did I know, Mr. Rogers was an evil man. By telling children they’re special just for being who they are, he helped create this generation of worthless, lazy socialists who think they’re entitled to health care … at least according to Fox News.


Fox news... or the Onion?

FOX News has a motto "We Report, You Decide".

How does this get turned into "FOX News calls"???

This also happens to Rush Limbaugh all the time. Report on something someone else says, and all of a sudden he owns it. Remember "Barack the Magic Negro?" It was a black liberal columnist who orginally said it....Rush reported it....Rush gets blamed for it.

Same thing happening here.

Mr. Rogers
The man was practically a saint and these 3 perfect excuses for birth control think HE is evil! All 3 need a check up from the neck up! You had it right in the question with FOX news or the Onion. Wish they would just go off the air for every ones sake.

Hey, first of all, even when I was a kid, I knew that guy was off a little!


He was very odd. Also, wasn't he a Navy Seal or something?

Now as for the news report, we all know that there is no such thing as bad press. These guys will say anything to get some ratings. Who cares?

Fox news are the ones that called Mr. Rogers evil. Don Chance, a professor at Louisiana State University...did not call him evil. He may have stated that he thought Mr. Rogers was sending the wrong message....but he did not call him evil. Besides why is FOX news reporting on a subject that is 3 years old as if it happened yesterday?....seems they are not just making up stories anymore but digging up old stories done by others as if it was new...GOD they really are pitiful.

Because at the beginning of the report the female reporter says calls him, "this evil, evil man."

Watch the video again, it's as plain as day.

Rush gets blamed because he aired and posted a very offensive song that used that saying. It's not the phrase that was offensive, it's what was done with it. It was no different and no less offensive than an old fashioned minstrel show. If you don't understand what's wrong with that, then you really don't understand a thing about the history of bigotry in America.

Mr. Rogers never went into the military, he went into the seminary. I believe the rumor started because people confuse him with Captain Kangaroo.

Mr. Rogers did however, during Desert Storm,started a program that he and others visited and counseled children whose parents were away at war.

Yup, evil evil man.

It was obvious that the comment was "tongue in cheek", with a tinge of sarcasm.

Also....Barack the Magic Negro was not an offensive song. Once again it was parody....was it offensive for Al Sharpton to wonder if Obama was "Black enough"? Because that was what this song was making fun of, in addition to the liberal black columnist calling him the Magic Negro in the first place. The black guys get a pass, and Limbaugh is a racist for pointing it out? AMAZING!

Not even remotely obvious.

It's offensive, very offensive, and if you can't understand why, then I feel bad for you.

I'm not about to defend Al Sharpton for anything he's done or said. The guy has been mostly divisive and self-serving throughout his career. His own career has been a mirror image of what Limbaugh has done through his. He's the same kind of offensive and dangerous demagogue, just for a different point of view.


in addition to the liberal black columnist calling him the Magic Negro in the first place. The black guys get a pass, and Limbaugh is a racist for pointing it out? AMAZING!

Did you read my post? The phrase "magic negro" is not in itself offensive. The columnist was referring to a modern trope in movies known as "the magic negro" where white folks get saved by some sort of magical, smiling, happy black man (The Green Mile, Bagger Vance, etc.).

What was offensive is what was done with it in this case - the minstrel show crooning of this white "satirist" is the worst kind of old fashioned racism. If you don't know why minstrel shows are so offensive, I suggest you look up the subject. The magic negro trope in films (though likely born out of some misguided and deep seeded sense of shame or guilt on the part of some white writers) is itself, offensive, but for different reasons.

"The black guy gets a pass, and Limbaugh is a racist for pointing it out".....right.....I got news for you Rush is a RACIST!

List of racist quots by Rush:
1. I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.

2. You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.

3. Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?

4. Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing.

5. Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.

6. The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.

7. They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?

8. Take that bone out of your nose and call me back(to an African American female caller).

9. I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn’t deserve.

10. Limbaugh has called Obama a ‘halfrican American’ has said that Obama was not black but Arab because Kenya is an Arab region, even though Arabs are less than one percent of Kenya. Since mainstream America has become more accepting of African-Americans, Limbaugh has decided to play against its new racial fears, Arabs and Muslims. Despite the fact Obama graduated magna *** laude from Harvard Law school, Limbaugh has called him an ‘affirmative action candidate.’ Limbaugh even has repeatedly played a song on his radio show ‘Barack the Magic Negro' using an antiquated Jim Crow era term for black a man who many Americans are supporting for president.

Besides this is about how Fox called Mr. Rogers evil not about how much of a blatant racist Rush is.

Quotes 1-2-8 were never said by Rush Limbaugh. The others are hardly racist.

Chris Rock says more racially offensive things in one of his comedy bits, than Rush has said in his whole career.

Having watched and listened to the entire video, To me it seemed like they were sarcasticly making fun of the study, but that just me impression YMMV

"From heaven where he's (Mister Rogers) watching us right now..." says the video clip later on. So either A.) There are evil people in heaven or B.) The "evil man" comment was sarcasm. Fox and Friends is a talk show like "Good Morning America", it's not the Associated Press. I do agree that the speaker should not have said "evil, evil man" even if it was in jest, but there are many things I've said in my life that can be pointed at as wrong as well.

Nah, you guys don't have to worry about Mr. Rogers. I'd look out for the mail man, Mr. McFeely, though.





edit for a terrible, terrible word mix up.
