Roger Ailes Bombproofed The Fox News Headquarters, Fearing Gay Terror Attacks

mainRolling Stone‘s long piece on the evil mastermind is filled with all sorts of joyous nuggets, including the above. Additionally, an underground bunker called the “brain room” — with special security clearance needed for entrance — acts as a research center in which the cable network’s most fiendishly clever plans are developed:

Murdoch installed ailes in the corner office on Fox’s second floor at 1211 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan. The location made Ailes queasy: It was close to the street, and he lived in fear that gay activists would try to attack him in retaliation over his hostility to gay rights. (In 1989, Ailes had broken up a protest of a Rudy Giuliani speech by gay activists, grabbing demonstrator by the throat and shoving him out the door.) Barricading himself behind a massive mahogany desk, Ailes insisted on having “bombproof glass” installed in the windows – even going so far as to personally inspect samples of high-tech plexiglass, as though he were picking out new carpet. Looking down on the street below, he expressed his fears to Cooper, the editor he had tasked with up-armoring his office. “They’ll be down there protesting,” Ailes said. “Those gays.”

Befitting his siege mentality, Ailes also housed his newsroom in a bunker. Reporters and producers at Fox News work in a vast, windowless expanse below street level, a gloomy space lined with video-editing suites along one wall and an endless cube farm along the other. In a separate facility on the same subterranean floor, Ailes created an in-house research unit – known at Fox News as the “brain room” – that requires special security clearance to gain access. “The brain room is where Willie Horton comes from,” says Cooper, who helped design its specs. “It’s where the evil resides.”

    You’ll have to be more careful than that, Roger, if you hope to evade those wiley gays . . .

    I would suggest you cram a huge cork in your ass–just to ward off any surprise attacks.

    Well I’ll give him one thing, the gays did attack the Mormons pretty hard after the prop 8 fiasco.

      “… the gays attacked mormons…” so in what way did the glbtq community inflict violence and oppression on mormons?

      I am unsure if you are being sarcastic or ignorant.

      • SF2K01

        I’m being serious. There actually were quite a few protests, vandalized property (cars at mormon churches being defaced) and more than a few incidents involving attempted or successful arson against Mormon churches in that time period. It’s not like it was a secret.

        I don’t care about the issue one bit, but the only thing ignorant is pretending that, simply because you’re on their side, they’re completely innocent and without their share of radicals unlike every other political group. I doubt most gays would do anything, but that doesn’t excuse someone who does decide to do something.

          Good and moral people of America be aware: the gay terrorists are comin! And they’re going to get their marriage and anti-discrimination laws by any means necessary! Beware the radicals holding hands, kissing in public places, and blowing up every good and decent place of worshipful bigotry in sight!

    WTF are we gonna do? Glitter bomb the place? Capture people and tie them up, then style their hair and fix their wardrobe?  Sneak in Bond style and redecorate the place?  For torture, we’ll just pluck your eyebrows?  Srsly, dude? Gay terror attacks?  WTF are you smoking?

    Oh he was born in a tar-paper cabin
    Down by Mississippi way
    And in 1942 when his Mamma she came due
    She let a queef that blew the roof away
    Lord Lord
    She let a queef that blew the roof away
     
    Now the labor it was hard
    Nearly tore her ass apart
    But she never let a weep or wail
    Lord Lord
    Oh she never let a weep or wail
     
    After three solid days
    The little turd had slipped away
    She was the mother of a brand new child
    Lord Lord
    She was the mother of a brand new child
     
    And when she woke up
    To cast a look at her new pup
    The sight could have made her weep or wail
    Lord Lord
    The sight could have made her weep or wail
     
    For where most folks have a face
    Little Roger had an ace
    With a smile that ran both north and south
    Lord Lord
    With a smile that ran both north and south

    Is it just me, or does that pic of Ailes look like a photoshopped image of Cheech Marin after packing on 80 lbs. of munchie weight?  Even if such an alternative universe Cheech didn’t outright eat Tommy Chong whole, it certainly explains why Tommy got so thin there . . .

    Fox not-News has also supported the use of US military force against other countries to feed the military industrial complex’s greed. Without this mass media support some of those mass murder attacks for profit might never have got off the ground, as well as of course opportunities to prevent future ones.
    I seem to recall a Bond movie, Tomorrow Never Dies, that defined  a way to deal with media executives that promote war and the death of tens of thousands, a rather lethal solution.
    Perhaps that is what the propaganda as news channels fears most, certainly many countries could be entitled to say they have been attacked by Fox not-News and had their citizens lives threatened and as a result, this allows for a legitimate tactical response, very unlikely to be a gay one either more like seal team six.
    How many other corporations have played war and their executives also have yet to feel the brunt of a tactical response, times could likely change, as corporations are being recognised more and more as the drivers behind attacks upon other countries citizens and the most logical response is alwasy to eliminate the threat by cutting of the head of a snake.

    My favorite part of the article was two-fold. 

    One,  that “a study by the University of Maryland reveals, ignorance of Fox viewers actually increases the longer they watch the network.”

    And two, that, “Ailes briefly returned to the passion for the theater he discovered during his college days. In perhaps the oddest chapter of his professional life, he … set out to conquer Broadway. Their first production: an environmental-themed musical called Mother Earth. When the show flopped, folding after just a dozen performances in 1972, it nearly bankrupted Ailes.”

    And he’s still pissed off at the entertainment industry and the gays therein – not to mention the environmental movement – because the truth is, he’s a no-talent hack, who can’t do what they do. So he resents them and attacks indirectly instead, because he’s also a coward.
