Fox will not get rid of a commie like that; they're in bed together. Why do you think the US gave China most favored trade status to the Chinese? Commie slave labor!

Really, OJ? That old middle school "Confucius say" joke based on an insulting Chinese stereotype?

I keep wondering why you always seem to go out of your way to portray yourself as an adolescent. How old are you? If you're really an adolescent, I'll understand.

You got that right - Obama, Reid, Pelosi and Holder have been playing the RACE CARD for 6 years now. No one pays much attention to it anymore.

That's no excuse for snub human decency or at least not be rude. Even if you don't feel altruistic when pressed, there's a lot to be said for good manners.

It will be good in January when we have Republicans in the House, and Senate, and can get back our freedom of speech. We can say china man, and Illegal alien, and anything else we want. Hang in there it won't be long now.

The opportunistic politicians jumping on this "fire him" bandwagon clearly have no idea who Bob Beckel is, and clearly have no idea how many other times he's used similar language when it comes to China. The joker politicians heard FOX and that "somebody said something I cam capitolize on" and started calling for his head on a platter. Beckel is about as far left as anyone can get and not be named Øbama, Reid, Pelosi or Warren. He's said much worse, including swearing on air without any "bleep" delay in place and has survived those incidents; he'll survive this one.

Bobby Beckel is Fox's token liberal. He is a joke. He tries so hard to defend Obama until recently when even he has had his fill of the Muslim President. This immigration thing in going badly for the Democrats. It was supposed to prove how humane they are, instead it proved how very stupid they are, and they have no clue what to do with it now.

Leave Fux alone but continue to question their fairness, their truth, their balanced and their smears.

Saw some four or was it five women cackle away this morning and felt like all these awful woman needed was a large black cauldron, smoke, knitting needles and the words

In the poison'd entrails throw.—
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one;
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot!

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

The goodness is that their demographics are old and the younger generation receive their news from more legitimate sources.

Well, now that you have spent topi me talking to yourselves, you may want to take a break and watch a few fellas enjoying themselves without a care in the world:

Now, go out and get some cupcakes for your friends and family and enjoy the rest of your day.

You cannot change any minds here. They were locked into position before they got here and nothing will change.

Topix is lethal to your mental health.

Get out while you can.

So to stereotype woman as witches is ok? Sounds like more WAR ON WOMAN from the left to me. Hypocrite? Yes.

So, the Democrats are calling for Government censorship.
Didn't China recently remove a reporter from the air?
This is where the Democrats are taking us.

Of course the liberals do not know that Beckel is a die-hard Democrat - he is on FOX NEWS and the Dems cannot comprehend that. The Dems believe If he is not on MSNBC then he cannot be a Dem.

FOX has more liberals on their shows than the total conservatives on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, etc. has in a week. In addition to Beckel, you can count on Juan Williams, Kirstan Powers, Alan Colmes, Shamu Green and half dozen to a dozen talking heads from the progressive left on different programs throughout the day. Me thinks you are a joke because you comment and obviously don't have a clue so you're just jabbering away like a 2-year old.

I'm an Irishman and not offended by it, but obviously Judy Chu (Chu on what?) and her pal Ted Lieu are ashamed of being Chinese or Chinamen. The biggest babies in the world are f-ing Democrat socialists and liberals. These two more than likely have a Red Star in their pocket and answer to Comrade. Some people have a chink in their under armors.
