Fox Nation Video Asks If the Fourth Horseman Is in Cairo

As many of you know, this blog’s tagline is: Sorting out the crazies.

Lately there have been a lot of craziness in the news and I’ve been on top of most of it.  Well, of all the weird noise coming from the far right, this next article pretty much gets the fictional “craziest of the crazies” award…

News Hounds

Fox Nation actually posted a video asking their viewers if the fourth horseman of the apocalypse is appearing in Cairo. According to them, you can see a greenish figure at the 1:20 mark that appears to be a man on a horse in medieval garb.

Perhaps they could have taken a few extra minutes to research whether or not it was a hoax. Fox could have addressed such small facts as the horsemen are usually described as biblical in passages such as Zechariah 1:8-17 and 6:1-8 and therefore, would not be dressed in medieval attire.

Also, the fourth Horseman is listed as Death in Revelations 6:7-8. I’ve always seen Death robed, whether depicted as the angel Azrael or as the classic skeletal figure. Even Pagan versions such as Greek Thanatos fit that description.

Amazing that Fox Nation can identify the figure as medieval (despite the blurriness), and then rush to suggest it could be the Angel of Death without doing even the most rudimentary fact-checking.
