John Gibson is a vile disgusting little troll

John Gibson, host of the Fox News program The Big Story with John Gibson, is clearly a vile little troll worthy of the contempt of our entire nation. Rather than express sorrow for or admiration of Londoners John uses his soapbox to slam France, minimize the scale of the tragedy, and engage in fantasy (see suicide bombers in London), and of course call for a renewal of the Patriot Act.

Someone should remind Mr. Gibson that on September 14th, 2001 the entire nation of France indeed all of Europe stood still for us. They all stood with us then. When has Mr. Gibson or the rest of us done the same for Madrid? For London? Will we even think of doing the same when Paris is hit?

Via MediaMatters.org:

From the July 6 broadcast of Westwood One's The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly, guest-hosted by Gibson:

GIBSON: By the way, just wanted to tell you people, we missed -- the International Olympic Committee missed a golden opportunity today. If they had picked France, if they had picked France instead of London to hold the Olympics, it would have been the one time we could look forward to where we didn't worry about terrorism. They'd blow up Paris, and who cares?

From the "My Word" segment of the July 7 edition of Fox News' The Big Story with John Gibson:

GIBSON: The bombings in London: This is why I thought the Brits should let the French have the Olympics -- let somebody else be worried about guys with backpack bombs for a while.

I have to agree and disagree with you. Yes. Mr. Gibson definitely should had shown more empathy for Londoners affected by the bombing. Nobody should have to die at the hands of a terrorist, let alone any other force unnatural. I don't believe, however, that Mr. Gibson's comments about France were meant to relay his desire to have the deaths and pain spread in that country instead. Of course he's frustrated at the lack of support the French have offered the US and many other European countries in the fight against terror. Getting the point across to an audience who may not comprehend the depth of the subject can be difficult, especially if the audience is not willing to listen with an open mind.
