*Are you kidding us, Megyn Kelly?
Now that you see the hell you’ve raised by claiming straight-faced (bad grammar and all) that “Santa just is white,” you say it was tongue-in-cheek? How stupid do we look to you?
This is what you said:
“For kids watching at home, Santa just is white but this person is arguing we should have a black Santa,” she continued. “Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change. Jesus was a white man too. It’s like we have–he’s a historical figure that’s a verifiable fact, as is Santa, I just want kids to know that. How do you revise it in the middle of the legacy in the story and change Santa from white to black?”
This is what you now expect us to believe you actually meant:
“Humor is what we try to bring to this show, but that’s lost on the humorless,” Kelly noted in her response on “The Kelly File.” “This would be funny if it were not so telling about our society, in particular, the knee-jerk instinct by so many to race-bait and to assume the worst in people, especially people employed by the very powerful Fox News Channel.”
Assume the worst in you? You straight out DEMONSTRATED your worst girlfriend!
Its clear this wench can’t stand the heat, now she’s backpedaling.
In being “outed” by her own racist mindset (proving honest feelings can’t be denied or edited in hot-button issues!); which showed itself in her “out-loud-knee-jerk reaction” to Aisha Harris‘ op-ed piece in Slate, Kelly is now attempting to turn the tables.
Let us know how that works out for you, girl!
Her unsuccessful attempts to chide the reactions of others’ — including several of her same-race colleagues – appears high-handed with a genuine sense of self-entitlement. After hearing Kelly proclaim “Santa just is white, we’re only debating it because someone wrote about it,” comedian Jon Stewart jokes, “Shit just got real!”
Now THAT was funny. There is no mistaking this fact.
In her piece, Kelly claims Harris is “angry” because Santa is white. Yet it is Kelly who appears the angry one at Harris’ mere mention of the possibility; just listen to her.
Kelly opens her response with this: “In kicking off the ‘lighthearted segment’ I offered a tongue-in-cheek-message-to-any-kids-watching.” (You take a look at the video and tell us if it resembles any ‘lighthearted’ videos you’ve ever seen.)
“Apparently we ignited quite a controversy the other night,” she continues. But then has the audacity to assume we are stupid by attempting to align herself with Harris.
Kelly appears to have missed a very important point in this whole thing. What Harris offered was an op-ed piece that encourages a more inclusive mythical figure. You, Kelly, attempted to squash any tolerance to the concept by stating matter-of-factually, “Santa just is white…Just wanted to get that straight…Just because that makes someone uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change.”
As Jon Stewart eluded to, sounds like what the massa’s said about slavery.
Again we ask you, where’s the punchline to your “joke” girl?
