Fox Contributor Bo Dietl hyped offensive “safety tips” he claimed would help Americans avoid becoming “soft targets” for terrorism. Dietl's xenophobic “tips” included profiling individuals, watching exits, and putting bacon in bullets to offend terrorists.
On the November 18 edition of Your World with Neil Cavuto, Fox contributor Bo Dietl outlined his self-produced list of “safety tips” to avoid becoming a “soft target” to terrorism. Dietl's tips included turning people into security if they look suspicious, sitting near exits, and getting off of public transportation immediately “if you see somebody sitting there that doesn't look right to you.” During the segment, Fox displayed graphics dividing the tips into three categories:
“THEATER” SAFETY TIPS:
- SIT IN THE BACK OF THEATER
- TAKE NOTE OF ALL EMERGENCY EXITS
- STUDY PEOPLE AROUND YOU
“RESTAURANT” SAFETY TIPS:
- 1. BE AWARE OF EXITS AND WINDOWS
- 2. SIT IN THE BACK
- 3. DON'T SIT NEAR WINDOW
“BUS” SAFETY TIPS:
- 1. SIT NEAR DOOR OR ESCAPE WINDOW
- 2. GET OFF NEXT STOP IF YOU SUSPECT SOMEONE
Dietl also added one final tip: “I also put bacon in my hollow point bullets so when I whack the terrorists, he's ain't going to the 72 virgins.”
Dietl has a history of inflammatory, islamophobic, and extreme rhetoric, calling profiling in airports “the best thing in the world.” And recently, Dietl advocated that the government “stop worrying about people's rights” when it comes to surveilling Mosques and Muslim communities.
