Fox News Hosts Say The South Should Secede From The United States – Again

Earlier this week, a poll from Bright Line Watch was released which showed that 66% of Southern Republicans are in favor of leaving the United States and forming their own country. 50% of independents said they agreed with such a sentiment. Only 20% of Democrats were in favor. reported on the disturbing new data:

“Overall, support for leaving the Union among Southern states – listed as Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina – was 44%.”

That poll was the jumping off point for a discussion on Fox News according to Crooks and Liars, with hosts Greg Gutfeld and Lisa Boothe suggesting it might be a good idea if the South seceded from the country, just like they did to touch off the Civil War in 1860, with Gutfeld remarking:

“Lisa, I am very pro-splitting the country as a trial separation.

“Why not try it for two years, red and blue? Let the Democrats do their Democrat thing, and the Republicans do the Republican thing, and see what happens, who moves where. What could happen?”

Granted, Gutfeld appeared to be making his comments more than a bit tongue in cheek, but it prompted Boothe to second the idea:

“I’m probably going to get myself in trouble with this, but like, would it be the worst thing? I don’t know, I’m sick and tired of people who hate this country. I’m sick and tired of who say the flag is some sort of — the sign of evilness or oppression, who despise the country that we live in.”

She then added:

“I’m tired of the government now, you know, people like Biden want to weaponize the government, against people who supported Trump. So I mean, I don’t know, would it be the worst thing? Peacefully.”

Weaponize the government against people who supported Trump? You mean the thousands of shitbag domestic terrorists who stormed the Capitol and chanted about wanting to hang Vice President Mike Pence for daring to do his Constitutional duty? If prosecuting them to the full extent of the law is what has to be done, I’m willing to bet the vast majority of Americans are in favor of it.

Here’s a better idea: Let’s take all the insurrectionists and those who think Trump won the election and put them all on an enormous oil tanker ship and put them out to sea somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. They can start their own country wherever the tanker winds up landing.
