LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — ISIS fear-mongering on FOX News prompts an angry wife’s husband to confront a trans man and accuse him at gun point of being a member of ISIS: “I know what you’re doing, motherfucker. You’re scaring my wife — get out of here.”
The trans man, Benedetto DeFrancisco of the Chicago area, was walking to work in November when he was threatened by William Jackson who waved a semi-automatic pistol at him. DeFrancisco calmly walked away and called 911. Jackson was charged with aggravated assault.
According to Windy City News, DeFrancisco was told by police that Jackson and his wife were regular FOX News viewers and the constant ISIS terrorist fear mongering lead them to believe DeFrancisco looked like an ISIS member.
DeFrancisco according to Raw Story: “[Jackson] is not the only person watching Fox News — it’s a toxin and it’s spreading fear, and this fear leads to hatred. . . .”
FOX News is breeding our own homegrown terrorists.
