|Fox News Host: ‘If You Love Something, Do You Let Someone Pee on It?’ ||DC floats Lamar-Mahomes as next Peyton-Brady |
Fox NewsDuring a Tuesday afternoon Fox News discussion on the San Francisco district attorney vowing not to prosecute quality of life crimes amid a growing homelessness issue in the city, Fox News host Jesse Watters turned to his colleagues to ask a very serious question. “If you love something, do you let someone pee on it?”Over the past few months, Fox News has devoted countless segments to depicting Democratic-led cities like Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles as “liberal wastelands” full of homeless drug-addicted “zombies.” Much of the coverage has focused on public urination and defecation. Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News’ roundtable show The Five gave us yet another one of these segments.Noting that Chesa Boudin was recently elected district attorney of San Francisco by promising to pursue criminal justice reform and not prosecute minor public decency crimes, liberal co-host Juan Williams expressed sympathy for the homeless, who are often the targets of vagrancy laws.“We all know how to find a bathroom,” Williams said. “But if you are homeless, where are you supposed to go to the bathroom? You are not homeless by choice.”“Yes, you are! Some of them are,” fellow co-host Greg Gutfeld chimed in.Watters then called on San Francisco residents to form their own version of the Tea Party—but instead call it the Pee Party.“Every day when the D.A. walks into his office, there needs to be a bunch of patriots just peeing on the sidewalk in front of him,” Watters exclaimed. “Until he’s forced to arrest them! They will be like the Samuel Adamses of public urination.”Turning to Williams and telling him “to be normal for a second,” the conservative host continued with his rant.“If you love something, do you let someone pee on it?” Watters wondered aloud. “Of course you don’t! You protect that something you love from someone peeing on something, OK?”“What?” Williams replied, clearly taken aback.The one-time Bill O’Reilly protege then insisted that “you obviously let someone pee on” something you hate.Pointing out that Boudin’s parents are anti-war radicals who were sent to prison, Watters claimed Boudin “really hates the city” and is trying to “destroy” it.“His parents were domestic terrorists, they got locked up, and he was raised by domestic terrorists,” he concluded. “It makes perfect sense. And now his job is to destroy an American city. He is a socialist, he wants to run everybody out of San Francisco and rebuild it as a socialist utopia. That is what is going on.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day. Sign up now!Daily Beast Membership: Beast Inside goes deeper on the stories that matter to you.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nationâ€™s military, the mindâ€™s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagonâ€™s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
