Fox News Hires Another Bigot: Alveda King

In the ‘Is This really Surprising or Is it Just Fox Being Fox’ department comes the news that Fox News president Roger Ailes has announced the hiring of viciously anti-gay activist Alveda King as a commentator:
“Alveda has brilliantly carried the legacy of the King family to the next generation and has been a source of inspiration for many Americans. Her passion and mission for social change will be a valuable contribution to our network.” 
Huh. ‘Carried the legacy of the King family to the next generation’?

King has been married three times but says marriage is between one man and one woman.

King has had three abortions but is against reproductive rights.

King calls herself Dr. Alveda King, even though hers is an honorary degree from a wee Catholic school in rural New Hampshire.

Yeah, she’s totally Fox material: a liar, a bigot, a homophobe and a hypocrite.

Don't tell me; she claims to be a Christian and she's a climate-change and evolution denier to boot. (If only one could!) Plus she thinks that the earth is less than 10,000 years old and that Adam and Eve really existed. Oh well, it all goes with the territory, I suppose.

Hasn't the woman heard of birth control? Abortions should not be the first port of call for a woman too lazy to take a pill every day. Stupid should be added to her CV
