We're At 'War' I Tell Ya!

Fox News has escalated efforts to stoke fears about a caravan of Central American migrants amid clashes at the United States-Mexico border.

Scenes of US Border Patrol agents firing tear gas at migrants were shown across multiple news outlets over the weekend after US authorities closed off a major border crossing when members of a Central American migrant caravan rushed the area. They’re on Fox News, too, where anchors are hard at work inciting panic over the situation at the border. Applying for asylum at a port of entry or within the US, which many of these migrants are trying to do, is legal.

Media Matters for America senior fellow Matt Gertz on Monday morning posted screengrabs from the conservative network’s morning programming, including chyrons reading, “Crisis erupts as migrants storm the US border,” and “Caravan crisis escalates at the US border.” Fox News showed footage of migrants reportedly hitting border agents with rocks and bottles.

A permanent blemish upon the honor of the United States.

I am ashamed.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.
