“Crowd for #FLOTUS event in Daytona now chanting “Hail Obama,” tweeted WOFL Fox 35 reporter Mike Synan. “Wow, just wow.”
The rally was held at Daytona Beach’s Ocean Center. More than 5,000 people showed up — the crowd described as restless and boisterous.
Synan said the chanting came during a warm up session before the First Lady appeared on stage.
He repeated the claim in a follow-up message on Twitter, “True. Would not lie. Chanting “Hail Obama.”
Synan later said someone in the crowd would yell “Hail Obama” and then “hundreds that could hear that person would repeat.”

Frightening. 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
but not true!
Scary is right. Sounds too familiar.
Jeanne, maybe it's not true but you gotta see the parallels.
something that didn't happen isn't scary.
Why didn't they play it? I'm wondering if it did happen.
thank you for being the one logical person in this discussion.
According to the blaze it happened while they were waiting for Michelle to come on stage, before any tapes were going. They're going to ask other reporters that were present to confirm. Still – I'll be skeptical until then.
there is no video out there that I can find. The commentator mentions it and then never lets us hear it. Someone there commented it sounded like Me Hail Obama…(Mi-Chelle -Obama perhaps?)
Jeanne, your possibility is a lot more likely. I've also heard that the school's chant is "hail wildcats" which would explain why they would take the chant and appropriate it for the speech.
First there was "Hail Caeser", then later on we got the Germans chanting "Heil Hitler" to their great and glorious leader and savior of their nation; and now we got a bunch of McKenyan humanoids with their "Hail Obama" moment. OoooooK? These people are smokin too much of their biological product.
Much of what is not told,,,when Mom and Oma said, "Heil Hitler", they shook in their shoes praying they got it right. As german citizens they knew they were expendible. Mom was put in "Hitler school" at age 4. To Hitler, like Obama, human life meant very little.
That is scary stuff to think about. No man on earth is worthy of such adulations, especially when they lead their nations to ruin at the cost of many.
I had the advantage of hearing first hand of what Germany went thru. Now we face it in this country,,,most of America's citizens have no clue what they are facing if Obama is re-elected. My prayer is for Israel,,,they went thru so much w/Hitler,,,,,they will be on their own,,, enemies on every side,,
they were chanting "michelle obama"…lol
Pierce Watson that seems more likely.
There are far too many simularites between Obummer and dr fuhrer for my liking; I was a 10 year old child at the end of WW2; and even tho I didnt read the papers I well recall the sorrow and horror as my parents sat huddled and transfixed by their small radio. I had one uncle in Europe, 2 more and my dad in the Pacific; all I can recall until victory was groups of wives and mothers meeting at each oththers houses where the sorrow, tears and heartbreak were easily seen by us kids.
Those were dark days indeed, I see ovbummer bringing that horror right here to Amerncan fanilies once again….this time as a massive race war that will destroy our country from within!
SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES; IT'S NAME BE OBAMA…."HAIL OBAMA"…..
That truly sends chills up my spine!
Yes, Obama is so much like Hitler, which is why he's ordered the extermination of millions of innocents. Oh wait…
^lol…yeah I don't like Obama as much as the next guy, but you Fox News loyalists are crazy over here. Obama has nothing in common with Hitler, and for everyone else, hes not a communist. Both are outrageous statements to make.
^Pierce, thank you. Good to see there are still reasonable republicans out there.
More than crazy!
I am still waiting for answer about Libya myself.
You will not get an answer Jane,,
..and they told me, zombies are not real!
Yeah, They've been democrats since they late 1800's.
Geez! All Lemmings.
maybe they meant GO TO hail Obama.
I wish they had served Koolade and we'd be done with this madness. What Zombie nation have these brainless morphedites crawled out of?
You're a racist piece of shit. Congrats.
It should be Heil Obama!
Dang, she looks like a monkey.
video, or it didn't happen.
It is from Faux.
April, just because you don't like what they're saying, doesn't mean it's a lie.
"Faux" news is the most watched cable news channel in the world and they're quickly overtaking the broadcast MSM. Fox's newscasts are just news, or they don't air it. The opinion shows are also just that, opinions. They might be wrong, as any opinion can be, but they're not lies.
Broadcast MSM have had a monopoly on what we believe since the beginning and they're using it to sway the public, politically. They withhold information they don't want you to think about and trumpet stories that distract from the real news.
you just perfectly described fox news:
have had a monopoly on what we believe (speak for yourself we check out maddow/fox/msnbc/foxnation/huffpo/drudge and draw our own conclusions) since the beginning and they're using it to sway the public, politically. They withhold information they don't want you to think about and trumpet stories that distract from the real news.
Quite the list of "usual suspects", Gary. I go to most of those for news, too. How we draw different conclusions might be because you're a little Maddow/Stewart/MSNBC heavy.
Distract from real news? While Fox was reporting on Libya and the murder of our Ambassador and three other Americans, MSNBC was interviewing one of the Kardashians about fashion. Meanwhile Mitt hits the stump and Obama schmoozes with the ladies of The View. When Sandy hit, Fox was providing 24-hr coverage while the alphabet news outlets were trying to figure out some way to blame Bush. Failing that, they blamed Romney.
Besides being the least listened-to "news" source on cable, MSNBC pretends to be a news outlet while praising Obama for every little thing he's done, claimed or promised (most of them empty claims and promises), while hiding, ignoring or downright lying about every little detail Obama has failed at. Libya comes to mind. In absolutely every "hard-hitting" interview they give a Democrat there are so many soft-ball questions it looks like a pillow fight.
MSNBC gives us Chris (Kris Tingle) Matthews, whose latest rant is to hysterically call everyone who doesn't support Obama a racist, even the ones who voted for him the first time but feel cheated with what they got. America is soooo tired of the race-card. That alone has given Romney a lot of support.
Then there's Rachael Maddow, another one-tune, out-of-tune entertainer/"pundit" who is, if anything, worse that Matthews.
Finally, (for brevity), Huffington Post is nothing but a far-left-leaning group who profanely hates anyone who doesn't toe their ideological line. I've tried airing my opinions there, I know. Any time Arianna opens her mouth, something silly falls out, not to mention her constant "halitosis of hate". If you can't see that, maybe you're a little close to that line yourself.
However right-leaning Fox news may be (and yeah, I think they ARE right-leaning), they are nowhere NEAR as biased as NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CNN or NYT. The statement that Fox is "lying" or something is laughable and can only be made by people who don't watch or listen to them.
It doesn't matter if this happened or not, democrat party followers and office holders are simply unworthy of praise of any kind. Why? Ask the 50,000,000 aborted fetuses who felt the scalpel, the suction, the sissors or the saline burn.
The sickest part of this is that as far as abortions go, pro choice politicians will always be seen as heroes worthy of praise for preserving the so called freedom to chose (murder). It's such a travesty that this is how this laughable species called humanity has been devolving in the past several decades. Only animals kill their young, but I guess you can put so called civil and educated people in hat category.
Joel, SICK animals kill their young. Sick people kill themselves. Democrats kill babies with little fear of retribution. (did you notice I didn't qualify that with "sick"? It's redundant!)
@Joel Rivera @David B Severy. Well, we can't ask fetuses anything can we? Ummm, 'cos they are FETUSES. As far as "only animals kills their young", well, again, as HUMANS we have waged war on ourselves forever, thus killing OUR young (the young who could actually speak, since they were ALL the young enlisted men and women in the military). There are myriad differences between humans and animals – education, progress, choice AND opposable thumbs, to name a few. Please, do use YOUR opposable thumbs to google facts, hold your children, open a book… A better use for thumbs than having it be stuck up your ass holding whatever brains you have from leaking out…
You can speak to fetuses? They can feel?
Yes to both, Cole. They can certainly feel, they are alive!
David B Severy Too bad they have zero conscious. I mean do you remember being born ? All that pain that you had to endure. I'm pretty sure it was no big deal to you correct? All that said, it's not up to you or me, or any politician, it's up to the woman and her doctor.
Cole West..it's up to GOD, Whom you obviously don't believe in. He says He knew us before we were born. You would fit in well with the Third Reich.
Do you remember your first birthday Cole? Do you remember anything before your first birthday? Because you cannot, would that mean your mother should be allowed to abort your life at any time p to when you remember things? When you are deep in sleep tonight and unconscious of anything, is it ok to abort your life then?
No I don't follow any cult, sorry to disappoint you. Now lets say I'm a fetus in my mothers womb, I don't know anything yet, I have no ability to obtain memory, and all of a sudden that dreaded coat hanger comes out of no where. Now according to you theists, life begins at conception and the souls of the dead innocent go directly to "heaven." What's problem with that ? Now I'm in the fast lane to the sweetest place in the universe while my mother is condemned. It seems to me that all you pro-lifers are just jealous that I (the aborted fetus) get the suckle the tit of luxury before before you do if you ever can or could.
Keith Laroges Coppage Really would I ? Seeing as Hitler was a Christian, I think you would fit in quite well.
Indeed this is true Cole, and for that reason I believe and have often said that abortion needs to be illegal to deter people from becoming the murderers of their own children. The baby should not be slain and sent off to heaven, but why? Because it is murdered, and the deprivation of it's right to live makes the mother and dad, and doctor all 1st degree murderers !!!!! Then too is the matter of how abortion fails to deter single parenting, and give those who wish inconsequential immoral sex an out when the consequence (conception) arrives.
Your greater problem Cole is that when you die without faith in Jesus the Savior you go to hell to suffer everlasting torment. We can be forgiven even abortion/murder, but to tell God to take a hike every day of your life? After He sent His Son to take away the guilt and shame of your sins and the punishment you deserve for them?
David B Severy your proof is ?
You got it right Dave. Murder is murder. Timing isn't the factor.
Why didn't Bush I, II, Ronnie R., Gerald, Dick, etc. ban abortions then?
Are you anti war? Anti capital punishment? Are you pro-affordable healthcare act? Are you pro stripping funding from planned parenthood for mammograms?
Timothy Wright Right ? These strict conservatives preach these "christian values" yet what do they do? They want another war in libya, obamacare repealed. You don't want to pay a few more taxes to help the needy? Oh yeah, they're just freeloaders. That's not a very christian attitude. Hypocrites.
Cole, I don't need the kind of proof you need to know something so fundamental as these matters to be true.
I'm sorry, how is a blind faith fundamental ? That I can't live a good moral life without christ ?
David B Severy I didn't see this before but, yes Hitler was, raised catholic but in Mein Kampf and political speeches he makes many statements that he's christian.
Cole, I don't know about your faith, but my take is; If it has a heart, lungs……fingernails, for God's sake, it ain't just an unfeeling, mindless lump of plasma.
In certain cases, abortion may be the only way, rape, incest, health of the mother, etc. In just cases, it should be performed, with regret or remorse or even without the glee is seems to produce in you liberals. But the cavelier way it's being used and supported, as well as the ruthless ways it is being done, is nothing short of heartless, maybe evil.
Did you know fetus brain waves have been recorded many times. Do you know they even go through the sleep/REM/dream cycle? They curl around injuries if nicked in an amniocentesis ….did you know they smile?? Or have you closed your mind so completely you've never actually wondered about details of what you so condescendingly preach here?
You do not remember being born, neither do I. I also don't remember my first solid food or how much it hurt when I broke my arm at age 7. Is a baby not human until it can put it's thoughts and memories in a coherent order?
I think it IS possible for a non-Christian or even a non-believer to lead a good, moral life. I just don't think YOU or anyone who is pro-abortion fits that image. Your refusal to allow even the possibility fetuses might be human is the same sentiment some serial killers admit to about their victims. And here you are blathering about being moral.
Maybe "glee" was the wrong word. I should have said something like "warm satisfaction".
I'm not tossing my hat into the abortion argument here, but I just wanted to point out that your brain automatically forgets pain. I can't remember the exact feeling of breaking my clavicle six months ago. It's a defense mechanism. So maybe another metaphor might be better suited. Jus' sayin'.
The Nobel yahoos were planning to give the Presidunce an award, even as he was being elected.A Representative from New York offered up a motion that would have allowed the O'Bummer three terms in office.
I cannot believe that anyone knowing, or knowing about him, would give the booger the time of day, much less the Presidency of the greatest country on the Earth.
Validate your 2nd Amendment Rights.Carry.
Thank God our forefathers had the insight to have 3 branches of government. This nation may be able to withstand another Obama term. However, i doubt our nation can last much longer with a majority of people that would elect a leader like Obama. In the end, a people as a whole tend to get the Leadership they deserve….
Millions chanted the same to Hitler, and he took them to destruction. Very many similarities here…
Yes dude, Obama is so much like Hitler. Which is explains why he's ordered the massacre of millions of innocent people. Oh wait, that never happened. Nor will it ever. I get that you guys hate Obama, but Hitler? Seriously?
general statement. this man has written more executive orders that threaten our freedoms, yet the liberal media does not report, so the masses are unaware. he has taken us to the brink of financial destruction with the massive spending and deficits, again threatening our very survival. He has without congressional approval, given illegal aliens freedom here, placing more stress on an already overstrained medical system, thereby threatening the masses with the lack of adequate medical care when it is needed. Experts who have studied this mans agenda warn of many more extreme executive orders and actions which will further erode our freedoms, including the second amendment. I dont hate obama, but i am scared to death of his ideology, because i have studied enough to know that his intentions are not to help America, but to make her pay for all the bad she has done. I can only pray there are enough Americans who have seen thru this guy because it is so obvious to millions, while others still think he walks on water. There is so so much about this man that the media has hidden, including the most recent bengazi cover up. How so many can be so misled is beyond me….
Generally speaking, obama is just like hitler. They are both generally the same height, both generally the same race (an error margin of 50% there), and both are leading a country to world domination with a single race in control while covertly using the SS (or something like it, we are looking at you Peace Corps) to subvert the world into their will. I see exactly what you are saying, Mike.
Where's Brutus when you need him?
All we have is Biden. "Et, too, Biden?" Nah. Brutus had clear reasons. Biden's just a burnt-out political idiot.
You people are disgusting. NO PROOF. Racist bigots. Fox news is the main source of hate and all you people who watch them are mindless bigots who believe anything you see. Obama 2012!
Charlie, while I agree there's no proof and am willing to give the benefit of the doubt until such proof surfaces (if ever), but that crack about Fox being the main source of hate is so untrue as to be laughable. Just because you hate Fox doesn't make Fox hateful.
Compare ANYTHING on Fox with Wasserman-Schultz, Maddow and Matthews. Compare ANY Romney ad with MoveOn.org's "c*ck-punch video" or Obama "approved" Romney/Cancer ad. That's real hatred my friend and it's all on your side.
For more years than you have lived Charlie I have watched both sides. My obligation to myself has always been to educate myself. Understanding you are young ,,,you have not lived the consequences of this administration yet, but you have heard all the negatives about Republicans. The mainstream media has a "protect Obama no matter what complex". fact. They refuse to report on Libya,,a cover up???? Did you know that journalist's first obligation is to keep the government open and accountable to the people? ABC, NBC, CBS,,,mainstream media. Try listening to Brit Hume on Fox,,,He is an example of a man who is a great journalist. I have never been a racist,,,,,but Obama is working hard to make sure the hatred between the races grow. He wants whites to shut up and sit down. He wants total control,,,look up dictator.
I just love how FOXNEWS feeds a lot of bullshit to the American people… but the saddest part is that people believe it. A lot of people that were at the event spoke about it and they were actually chanting "Michelle Obama" not "Hail Obama". People need to get facts straight, especially if you're a national news telecast.
Gee….I believe that because that's exactly what I expect a crowd to do. Hail Obama sounds a lot like Michele Obama but hey, why pass up a good opportunity to bash based on another lie.
Could be, Mark. I find that more likely, myself.
I hope you all realize they were chanting Michelle Obama..leave it to Fox News to make some dumb shit up for their army of people to start spreading before anyone even stops to question it.
I've felt for some time now that there'e something going on that no one is talking about, not even Fox (except as a mild joke)!
We've heard Clinton "supporting" Obama with veiled innuendo and questionable statements. We've got that really dumb virginity video, that even dumber (and disgusting) "c*ck-punch" video put out by MoveOn.org, not to mention 4 years of truly idiotic Biden gaffes culminating with his "I got news for you, we do!" speech.
What about Obama's first debate? Pitiful!
Don't forget Rachael "Nurse Ratchet" Maddow, Debbie (does D.C.) Wasserman Schultz and "Kris Tingle" all making truly inflamatory, insane statements.
Can it be that no one EXCEPT Michelle want's Obama re-elected?
Oh yeah, I forgot. What the heck is this MSM reporter reporting it for. It doesn't make Obama look good, does it? He hardly seems to be carrying Obama's water, here.
they were chanting "Michelle Obama" you misinformed sheep.
So… they were changing "Hail o'bama"… cameras were rolling… but that wasn't something that should maybe have been included… Synan's motto: "Let's keep the news speculative."… I say, If you got it… show it… if you don't… shut up.
Maybe not as his first duty, Mitt has an awfull lot of damgage to repair, but I pray that our new Government weeds out the extreme liberals from our schools, I pray that History lessons once again be a large part of our childrens education….THE REAL HISTORY!; that the "pledge" is once again restored to every classroom; that our children once again learn pride in our countrh; that our Constitution, history, Political Science, reading comprehension and much more be emphasized in our schools; that our borders and immigration be enforced. in short….our countrys future rests in the hands of our children; through history lessons our children will learn why they should be proud of America as we return to the visions of our Forefathers.
When our Flag passes by, when our National Anthem is played, I stand just a little taller and many times get a little catch in my throat as my eyes get a little misty, and once in a while I have to wipe away a single tear in the corner of my eye. I want all the children of America to learn why that happens; most of all, I really pray those same emotions are once again felt by gererations of American children yet to come.
First our new Presidents name must be Mitt Romney; only then will America begin to heal.
This is how it starts. What's next, storm troopers?
no another hitler
They've had Obama Youth since '07…look at all of the videos of kids being coerced to sing praise to Obama.
Where is the audio to prove this extremely provocative claim?
Without providing any audio, this is just a Faux News reporter saying something, and expecting us to take him at his word. It's a completely idiotic and offensive claim. Think about it… you're a reporter for Faux News and something which completely supports your narrative of Obama as a socialist and Nazi occurs at a rally..why wouldn't you record audio of this? At least there actually is audio of Romney demonstrating his Plutocratic beliefs…
Michelle? maybe? Not Hail? Where is the audio?
Isn't it funny (funny odd, not ha ha) that there is video of the appearance but no video/audio of this supposed "chant"? Oh well, what does it matter. Someone from Faux "News" claims it is so and he even tweeted it so it must be true!
GAD DAYUM you people are fucking retarded.
I don't buy this story one bit. Starnes is just trying to make it look as though Obama were a totalitarian dictator, which is a crock!
No wonder the streets and surround shelters were quiet around here they all were at the rally making sure they still get there Obama bucks and obama phones lol we need a leader one that takes us up now runs our country in to the ground and broke make our nation independant again not dependant on the goverment If Social security only get a 1% cost of living why shouldn't the same be for our goverment that right there tells you they think they are above us not one of us.
Why the video that doesn't even show the crowd saying this? Worthless waste of time and not exactly credible. I am by far no Obama supporter but this is just trash journalism.
Comrade Stalin, Heil Hitler, and now Hail Obama, Wow how far down have we gone to tyranny?
Fox News utters nothing but lies. I'm sure that it is par with Nazi propaganda leaflets thrown about in Germany in the late 30's and early 40's.
I used to be recommended this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this put up is written by way of him as no one else know such distinct approximately my problem. You’re wonderful! Thanks!
