Retired Lt. Col. Oliver North, the gung-ho Marine was named president Monday of the National Rifle Association.
North, 74, will be the biggest celebrity to lead the 5-million-member gun lobby since Hollywood leading man Charlton Heston, who famously declared in 2000 that his guns would have to be taken “from my cold, dead hands.”
“Oliver North is a legendary warrior for American freedom, a gifted communicator and skilled leader,” NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre said.
He would make a good President I am sure in that, what I am not sure at this moment how will Fox News develop as station after what they did with Oliver Norths’s office right after he left them to become President of the NRA.
Shortly after Lt. Col. Oliver North left Fox News to become the new president of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and Fox News did their version of a makeover on his old office. Whoever was in charge of the office makeover turned it into a meditation room that comes complete with prayer rugs most notably associated with the Muslim culture. Numerous left-wing independent news outlets picked this up and called it getting “woke” which is the slang term for being “aware.”
Some critics expressed that they would rather have a cot and a pillow to take a nap if they’re spending time being in a meditative room. Other’s joked that they better not let Stormy Daniels in there or she might lose a few articles of clothing.
Some of the independent liberal news outlets may have tried to tie this in with Islamophobia and even reached as far as mentioning transphobia when talking about policies that were brought up in Fox News training.
The new prayer room and mandatory training might appeal to liberals who have a particular agenda, but they don’t seem to work with people who have an opposite agenda. There seems to be a clash of ideas and norms and many have expressed that they would rather have no prayer room at all. Many Conservatives generally believe in God and a Christian lifestyle. Having prayer rugs may cause quite a controversy while still not making the activists happy.
According to a report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman, Fox News revamped its C-suite on Thursday after announcing its new CEO, Suzanne Scott, who previously served as the network’s head of programming.
The Fox News offices are, as Sherman noted, “getting woke.”
The office formerly belonging to retired Lt. Col. Oliver North, who recently vacated his post at Fox News to take on a job as president of the National Rifle Association, has reportedly been transformed into a “meditation room” with prayer rugs for Muslim staffers.
“People are terrified. They kicked Ollie North out and put in a prayer room. We’ve got a new trans policy. You’re not allowed to be transphobic,” one source told Sherman, with another insider adding, “People’s heads are blowing up.”
A spokesperson for the news outlet told Sherman the Fox News offices are “not the Wild West anymore; there are now policies and procedures.”
Is Fox News bending to the activists who demand that everyone follow their agenda while ignoring their own? Is this going overboard to appease political correctness?
