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. pic.twitter.com/7w7uOtsg1i

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.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
