No, I haven't seen it. It is illegal to advocate indiscriminate killings, and we do have strict hate speech laws. So I wonder if that is in fact what she did, or is it what you construed she did. Otherwise, there would be lawyers crawling over them, and this is a for profit enterprise. They couldn't afford such a thing. Do you have a link?

By the way, I don't know of anyone believing FoxNews is the only source of truth. FoxNews is not a totalitarian religion.
if by "we" you mean the US, we actually have no concept of "hate speech", and nor should we. in terms of the link, of course the speaker is a complete nutjob but what she was actually advocating (in between spouts of drooling and shouting) was a US refusal to do business with countries that harbor terrorists, and more funding by the US of Muslim entities who fight against terrorism - neither of which are terribly earth-shattering or unpopular notions. she intends to kill radical Muslims, although of course she probably has very little idea as to how to distinguish a radical Muslim from any other Muslim.
