Hey Idiots: Taking On the "Right Wing Insanely Fake Christian Hate-Monkey Trolls" Over Al Jazeera

With Al Jazeera America launching in a couple of weeks, Current TV's John Fugelsang decides to address the racist elephant in the room that is the right-wing freakout over the event. Best Rant Ever.

“I know you guys are easily confused; most of you think “Rwanda” was J.J’s sister on Good Times,” Fugelsang said to conservatives. “But Al Jazeera America represents something more than news that isn’t profit or ratings driven — they represent foreign investment in a country where the two-party system outsourced your jobs. They represent facts over opinion and they represent our cultures coming together just a little more, whether you bigots like it or not.”
