Fox's Tucker Carlson: It's "Fascism" For Businesses To Have To Treat Gay Customers Equally
http://mediamatters.org/blog/2014/02/26/foxs-...
But a black business owner refusing to serve the KKK would be okay. And a Muslim business owner refusing to serve gays or Jews would be okay.

But it's just selective "fascism" - a Christian business owner refusing to serve gays or a Jewish business owner refusing to serve Muslims - that isn't okay.

Business owners can refuse to serve anyone for any reason.

Fascism is forcing anyone to do anything against their will or personal beliefs.

Selective fascism is hypocrisy.

You don't get this?

You are lying again.
The President of Libya interviewed 40 ( Not 50) people ( not Al Qaeda).
The President of Libya did not say Al Qaeda planned or carried out the attack.
You are lying.
By NBC News staff
Updated at 6:37 p.m. ET: An anti-Islam film that sparked violent protests in many countries had "nothing to do with" a deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi earlier this month, Libya's president told NBC News.
In an exclusive interview with NBC News' Ann Curry, President Mohamed Magarief discounted claims that the attack was in response to a movie produced in California and available on YouTube. He noted that the assault happened on Sept. 11 and that the video had been available for months before that.
"Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, should have been six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September," he said. "They chose this date, 11th of September to carry a certain message."
NYT: Deadly Libya attack a major blow to CIA efforts
Magarief said there were no protesters at the site before the attack, which he noted came in two assaults, first with rocket-propelled grenades on the consulate, then with mortars at a safe house.

Protests ignited by a controversial film that ridicules Islam's Prophet Muhammad spread throughout Muslim world.

The attack took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, as well as information management officer Sean Smith and security personnel Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
US Ambassador Chris Stevens was 'courageous,' Obama says
Magarief told Curry that based on the accuracy of the assault, he believes the attackers must have had training and experience using the weapons.
"It's a pre-planned act of terrorism," he said, adding that the anti-Islam film had "nothing to do with this attack."
Though Magarief believes the attack was the work of Islamist fundamentalists, he dismisses any notion that Libya is in danger of becoming a theocracy.
Libyan President Mohammed Magarief tells NBC's Ann Curry that Islamic fundamentalists do not share the same goals and aspirations as most people in his country.
“This will never happen,“ he said.“ They don’t have the strength. They don’t have the supporters. They will remain a minority that’s isolated, that will not be accepted by us. And I’m sure Libyans will fight to the last man against seeing this happen in our land.”
'A strong friend'
Magarief said that while Libyans appeared to be behind the attack that "these Libyans do not represent the Libyan people or Libyan population in any sense of the word."
Hilary Stevens, sister of Christopher Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya who died Tuesday during an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. In an interview with Rock Center Anchor Brian Williams, Stevens reflects on her brother's legacy and work.
He added: "We consider the United States as a friend, not only a friend, a strong friend, who stood with us in our moment of need."
More than 40 people have been questioned in connection with the incident, the Libyan leader told Curry.
He described Stevens as a "humble and very un7433ique human being" and a "great friend of Libya."

HEY DUMBASS!!
The $5.3-billion Keystone XL Pipeline Project is the largest infrastructure project currently proposed in the United States. Construction of the 1,179-mile pipeline will require 9,000 skilled American workers. The project will provide jobs for welders, mechanics, electricians, pipefitters, laborers, safety coordinators, heavy equipment operators and other workers who rely on large construction projects for their livelihoods.
In addition to construction jobs, an estimated 7,000 U.S. jobs are being supported in manufacturing the steel pipe and the thousands of fittings, valves, pumps and control devices required for a major oil pipeline.
TransCanada has contracts with more than 50 suppliers across the U.S., including companies in Texas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Indiana, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Ohio, Arkansas, Kansas, California and Pennsylvania.
TransCanada employed 4,844 Americans in Oklahoma and Texas on construction of the $2.3-billion Gulf Coast Pipeline Project, which is expected to be complete by the end of this year.
Construction and development of the Keystone XL and Gulf Coast Pipeline Projects is anticipated to generate $20 billion in economic impact in the United States, including $99 million in local government revenues and $486 million in state government revenues during construction.
The pipelines will also generate an estimated $5 billion in additional property taxes during their operational life.

Thing is, Obama is using this as a political maneuvering tactic.

He's holding it up on purpose so he can announce right before the elections, "The Democrats are in favor of this pipeline. Vote for them now."

Just wait and see.

You're much too pessimistic for your own good. Instead of giving kudos to Republicans for standing against bad policies in their own party, you continue to follow the yellow brick road in the Land of Oz.

Maybe dumbass Republicans in Congress should address the families of over 4000 dead soldiers why they were sent to Iraq. So far they were told WMDs, Links to Al Qaeda, Spreading Democracy, or was it about oil.

I find you total assh*les to be such a f*cking joke ranting & having a fit about Benghazi where 4 people died and yet say absolutely nothing when your hero George W Bush sent 40000 soldiers to their deaths in a made up war based on lies.

My God, they weren't even given properly armored vehicles & body armor.

You people are a bunch of sick f*cks who ignored the travesty in Iraq while lying to make up a false issue in Benghazi.

There is no excuse for you people.
