Two Fox News commentators were suspended on Monday for using profanities while criticizing President Obama on Monday.

Fox News reported:

Ralph Peters, a Fox News “strategic analyst,” called the president a “total pu**y” who “doesn’t want to hurt our enemies.”

A couple of hours later Stacey Dash, a Fox contributor, said the president “didn’t give a sh–” about Sunday night’s terrorism speech.

“Earlier today, Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air,” Fox senior executive vice president Bill Shine said.

“Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks,” he said.

Dash’s profane remark was partially bleeped during “Outnumbered,” a lunchtime talk show on Fox News.

Peters’ comments were not bleeped at all. He spoke to anchor Stuart Varney on the Fox Business Network, a smaller sister of Fox News.

Varney let him speak for over a minute, then told Peters, “You can’t use language like that on the program, OK?”

Varney followed up again later and called on Peters to apologize, which he did. Then Peters continued to demand stronger military action against ISIS.

“I do apologize for giving into my anger, but… I feel like you know the American people understand where I’m coming from on this,” Peters said. “My choice of words was incorrect, but my sentiment, I think, is shared by many.”

The White House had no immediate comment.

Dash said in a tweet she was willingly paying the consequences for her comment.

Although Fox is a home for daily conservative criticism of Obama, vulgarities from the commentators are very rare.

Both Fox News and Fox Business are cable channels, so they’re not subject to the government regulations that police profanities broadcast over the public airwaves.

Media Matters, a liberal anti-Fox monitoring organization, almost immediately flagged the Peters profanity, which caused it to get widespread attention on the web on Monday.

  1. People need to realize how much the government controls the media. Fox, like other broadcasters hold BROADCAST AND UTILITY LICENSES issued by the FCC and such is contingent upon “operating in the public interest”. Who finally gets to decide what constitutes “operating in the public interest”?

    • Not sure it’s a legitimate “Government” controlling anything. Perhaps a private banking cabal controlling what Rupert Murdoch allows on FOX snooze?

      • Sir, by mentioning “banking cabal”, you have placed yourself in the eyes of a reasonable individual as an antisemite. You lose.

  2. I don’t give a shit that Stacey Dash said that the resident in our WH doesn’t give a shit and obama is a pussy….about time people start to speak up……it was ok when they bashed Bush or when all the liberal outlets bash republicans and conservatives…..they troll these sites for things to be offended by……and we allow them to blow it out of proportion and we back down and cower with an apology…..smh…..speak up people….

  3. Non-American is the New American. We have “freedomed” ourselves right into slabery to the feelings and religions of everyone in the world EXCEPT the Christian American. While all religions and countries let is fight for their liberationist, it was at the cost of our very own.

  4. The entire WORLD has had it up to their hairline with this puke loser pile of America HATING garbage the losers call a “president.” Enough is enough from this incompetent failure. He needs to get back to his “rev” wright and those two bstrd losers can “goddam America” the rest of their worthless lives.
