Dem Congressional Candidate Tweets That Fox News Needs FCC Regulation for 'Telling Nothing But Lies'

Via Twitchy we learn that Mike Dickinson, hoping to challenge House Majority Whip Eric Cantor in central Virginia, is running against Fox News, even asking for Federal Communications Commission regulation. "Fox News does nothing but tell lies and mistruths. They have unqualified political analysts. We need FCC to monitor and regulate them," he tweeted.

 "Fox News is basically a opinion channel. It's there (sic) view of events. It's not news. They lie and distort everything to fit their opinion," he added. He also tweeted Sean Hannity was "just as qualified" a political analyst as comedian Kevin Hart and even a house cat:

Wow haha. We stirred the pot by saying Fox News needed regulation for telling nothing but lies. Many Foxheads came out the woodwork. Good.

What Hannity does, is no different then what @KevinHart4real does. Both get first amendment protection but both are entertainment.

Meet chili. Never run for office or been on a staff. No degree. JUST AS QUALIFIED TO BE A ANALYST AS HANNITY.

News organizations need to report news. Not vendettas, opinion pieces, or hate. All Fox News does is stir up hate towards the President.

Speaking of wild analogies, Dickinson also thinks the NRA is just like the Ku Klux Klan:

The NRA are descendants of the KKK. They get over on intimidation and flag waving.

At the core though guns are essential to white flight. The older white generation has a born fear of African Americans.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
