Fox host Jesse Watters targeted Dr. Fauci during Turning Point USA's ridiculous AmericaFest conference in mid December, encouraging attendees to "ambush" Fauci with questions. He used words like "kill shot" and "deadly" to instigate a crowd who, at the same conference, cheered on murderer Kyle Rittenhouse as he walked out to his own theme song.
Fox News has cultivated an audience that normalizes violent narratives toward progressives and believes wild conspiracy theorists — the Capitol riot showed us just what that rhetoric is capable of initiating.
Add your name to demand Fox News fire host Jesse Watters over his violent rhetoric against Dr. Fauci!
It only took until April 2020 for Dr. Fauci to start using a security detail due to how targeted he became, thanks to conservative lawmakers and Fox News hosts. Incidents like being likened to a Nazi doctor on air are continuously putting Fauci and his family in danger.
Fox News can not continue to push violence to a viewer base that is waiting for reasons to pounce – there must be disciplinary action, and quickly.
