In the Orwellian world of Fox News, concepts that have a generally accepted meaning are turned upside down. Black is white, good is bad, and objecting to intolerance is - wait for it - intolerant. Nowhere is this bizarro world zeitgeist more apparent than Fox News' attempt to define, as intolerant, those who oppose the president of Chick fil-A's connections to homophobic hate groups and his comment that gays are bringing down the wrath of God - a comment which is, basically, another iteration of the "God Hates Fags" meme popularized by the Westboro Baptist Church. Fox's Chick fil-A's crusader-in-chief, Mike Huckabee has been preaching the Fox doublespeak gospel of tolerance which, in denigrating those who oppose Chick-fil-A's "biblical values," serves to reinforce the Christian right belief that gays are scum. And is so doing, during his interview with Juan Williams on "The Factor," he praised the SPLC designated homophobic hate group, the Family Research Council, as a paragon of family values - values held by former minister Huckabee who doesn't exactly practice the tolerance that he's now preaching. But yeah, if you criticize those who hate the LGBT community, like the FRC, you're the bigot. Party like its 1984.
