Fox News should fire Glenn Beck for saying that the president of the United States is a racist and for saying that the president of the United States hates white people. This is rhetoric that should be associated with the Ku Klux Klan and the American Nazi Party, not with a major television network using the public airwaves for private profit.

Beck has a right to say this and Fox has a right to put him on air. The First Amendment protects sick and demented speech as well as wise and noble speech. The degeneration of political discourse in America has sunk to such levels that pure hatred of the president and pure race-baiting in our media and politics have become increasingly commonplace.

Fox should make the minimal decision to not profit from this hate speech, especially in a time slot that is associated with news and likely to be viewed by children. To say the president hates white people is sick, vile, demented and more worthy of the rhetoric of a Nazi bund meeting than the public airwaves, which should not be used to profit from hate.
