From The Wrap:
Todd Starnes’ contract at Fox News is not being renewed. The host will no longer be working at the network, its website, or its premium subscription service, Fox Nation.
He made headlines as recently as Monday for comments during his radio program that Democrats do not believe in the Christian God and instead may worship Moloch, a pagan god often associated with child sacrifice. When asked for comment, Fox News confirmed the news that Starnes is no longer working at the network but did not elaborate on the reasons behind Starnes’ departure.
And this from The Daily Beast:
The conservative talking head is best-known for his incendiary anti-LGBT, xenophobic, and racist remarks both on-air, across Fox News programming and on his Fox Nation and Fox News Radio shows, and in his FoxNews.com columns. Perhaps most famously, Starnes compared migrants to Nazis and declared that America is being “invaded by a horde.”
Starnes also has a long history of erroneous reporting, having once been fired from Baptist Press over “factual and contextual errors” and “misrepresentations.”
Fox News’ Todd Starnes is running a Twitter poll today asking Evangelical Christians if they plan on voting for Donald Trump in the general election IF he becomes the GOP nominee.
At the time of this writing the poll shows 38% would NOT vote for The Donald.
This correlates with professional polls showing a similar result. Losing almost 40% of your political base would be catastrophic for a political party.
But great for Democrats 🙂
Immediately after County Clerk Kim Davis was ruled in contempt of court and taken into custody today for repeatedly breaking the law and defying not only a Federal Judge but the U.S. Supreme Court, Fox News’ resident right-wing jackass tweeted out the above.
Fox News’ Todd Starnes via Twitter:
“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked a vote to defund Planned Parenthood’s Killing Fields. That sort of emasculated, chicken-hearted leadership is why Donald Trump is surging in the polls. Americans want leaders with man-parts big enough to do the right thing.”
I’m sorry, but I’m just a little embarrassed for even a semi-straight guy like Starnes to write the words “man-parts.” If you’re going to go for the big dick metaphor, go for it.
And I’m guessing Starnes has some “insider” knowledge about the size of Trump’s penis?
Appearing on the Daystar program Joni, Fox News’ outrageous Todd Starnes predicts that gay rights will lead to the imprisonment of pastors and restrictions on the freedom of speech, adding that Christians in America are being “persecuted” and “beat up” just like Chinese Christians.
During the same appearance, Starnes suggested that due to progress for gay rights, “man/dog marriage” is on the way…
Todd Starnes is one of the intellectually-lacking reporters for Fox News.
Quite the professional, isn’t he?
Starnes seriously tweeted the above after President Obama signed the executive order banning workplace discrimination for LGBT federal employees.
Obama, a practicing Christian, is not allowed to say “Amen” when he wants to?
Religious oppression! Todd Starnes is practicing religious oppression!
“Christian” and Fox News host Todd Starnes had this to tweet regarding Saturday Night Live’s cold opening featuring Liam Neeson and parody President Obama.
I have never seen the level of decorum regarding our President fall to such unheard of depths.
This is really what people tune into Fox News for?
Are Americans really looking for this kind of behavior to parrot?
