The cast of Fox News’ “Outnumbered” on Friday worried that Americans would draw their own conclusions about what motivated mail bombing suspect Cesar Sayoc if they were able to make out the text of the bumper stickers that covered his van. The stickers promote a wide array of right wing conspiracy theories, and many include targets on prominent Democratic political figures
“The one thing they don’t want to have happen is people see those written things on the van and take pictures, and then you have the Internet problems,” said guest Steve Rogers, a former member of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. “People will formulate motives in their own mind.”
“I think the cat may be out of the bag,” replied host Melissa Francis with a nervous laugh.
“We have learned in law enforcement that it’s best to complete an investigation with all the facts before we start pointing fingers,” cautioned Rogers.
“Just don’t make it worse,” added co-host Harris Faulkner.

Big turnout for protest in Texas town known as a ‘haven’ for the Ku Klux Klan
Protesters gathered in Vidor, Texas on Saturday for a rally against racism and police violence.
The East Texas town has long had a reputation for racism.
Vidor is a small city of about 11,000 people near the Texas Gulf Coast, not too far from the Louisiana border. Despite the fact that Beaumont, a much bigger city just 10 minutes away, is quite integrated, Vidor is not. There are very few blacks there; it's mostly white. That is in large part because of a history of racism in Vidor, a past that continues to haunt the present," Keith Oppenheim reported for CNN in 2006.
BUSTED: Key Trump aide caught pushing racist vigilantism on social media
Video of a chainsaw-wielding Texas man threatening protesters while shouting the n-word went viral on Friday.
While many people were shocked by the video, one of President Donald Trump's top advisors supported the racism and vigilantism in documented in the video, according to a new report.
"President Donald Trump and his allies for years have amplified racist messages on Twitter while simultaneously reaching out to black and Hispanic voters, a dissonant balancing act that’s now rocking the GOP amid nationwide racial-justice protests," Politico reported Saturday. "The two competing forces collided Saturday on the Twitter feed of Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, when she boosted a tweet that lauded a man in Texas in a viral video as he yelled the n-word and wielded a chainsaw to chase away anti-racism demonstrators."
