On Tuesday, Megyn Kelly was reporting on the brutal beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was kidnapped in Syria on Thanksgiving Day two years ago. “I call upon my friends, family members and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government,” foley was forced to say before he was beheaded.
This tragic and gruesome scene perfectly demonstrates the brutality of ISIS, and Kelly was in the middle of using the scenario to demonize all Muslims when she was rudely interrupted by breaking news of police once again attacking protesters in Ferguson.
As footage rolled of police shoving an African-American demonstrator to the ground, Kelly said, “Hold on, I realize–can I just, just, I realize something’s happening in Ferguson but we’re talking about something important here, so can you just split-screen the video?” Visibly angry, she added, “I re-look, the protesters and police are clashing again, alright? They’re clashing again, but we’re talking about the death of an American who was beheaded and he deserves his say.”
Last December, Kelly told America’s children that both Santa and Jesus are definitely real, and most assuredly white dudes. “Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change. Jesus was a white man, too. He was a historical figure. That’s a verifiable fact – as is Santa,” she said.
When people objected to Kelly’s idiotic assertions, she claimed that she was being victimized by “race baiting” people who are motivated by a fear of the “very powerful” FOX News.
Is it really surprising that she would view a terrifying scene of African-American oppression as being less important than an excuse to demonize Muslims?
