She just needs to show more skin on her next show and she'll be ok.

This.

I really don't understand why this is such a big deal (well, I do, but I mean any rational reason), but if that's what it takes, I'm okay.
 
2013-12-14 06:35:17 AM  
Megyn, honey, just shut up already.

Nabb1: I really don't understand why this is such a big deal.


A journalist on a news program emphatically claims there is historical evidence that proves a pair fictional characters are white, and you don't see a problem?

I think she's wrong, but I don't give a shiat. But then, I don't have an axe to grind and get outraged over every little thing that happens on FOXNews. I just don't watch it. If it wasn't for people constantly biatching about FOXNews here or on Facebook and other places, I'd never see or hear any of this nonsense.

Also, when you say conclusively that Jesus is fictional, I know you are trying to be edgy and provocative, but it's just assholish.
 
2013-12-14 07:28:25 AM  
Shut up, cracker.
 
2013-12-14 07:38:05 AM  
Well, of course you're a target, Bullseye Butt.

What a nasty piece of work she is. I love the part where she calls people who didn't get what she alleged to be a joke "humorless." Then the next thing you know, they cut to Jimmy Kimmel mocking her while his audience laughed their asses off. Good times.
 
2013-12-14 07:40:06 AM  
(d) You're the real racist.
 
2013-12-14 07:46:19 AM  
If you're trying to convey humor, try laughing after your comments instead of just screeching.
 
2013-12-14 07:47:19 AM  
Is this just reasoning she does as a white person to make herself feel better?

If she had just blamed a low level staffer and liberals for being the real racists, then she would've gotten conservative bingo

"We continually see St. Nick as a white man in modern-day America," Kelly continued.

St. Nicholas was from Anatolia, so he was something between Greek and Turkish, which would make hin...swarthy? But she's right that American Santa is white.

Well knowing three things would be a step up for the average Faux viewer.

Fictional characters can have a race (Harry Potter was described as having dark hair and green eyes), but I'm pretty sure the Bible mentions Jesus being Jewish. Whether or not there actually was a socially progressive rabbi named Jesus is not the issue here.

I don't watch Fox News either, so we have something in common. But now the conservative news outlet in a sea or liberal media is the 'very powerful Fox News'. But I bet they won't drop the little-guy-fighting-for-conservative-viewpoints-yet-fair-and-balanced narrative. As I convinced my grandmother, a bias you agree with is not a lack of bias.

Yup. The Santa comments are laughable, it's when she pulled out the "Jesus was a white man too" where my head exploded from her stupidity.

And she needs to show more cleavage.

I guess an obvious corollary of Poe's Law meaning you can't really satirize the right wing in the US because nothing is so extreme or nonsensical enough that it might not be written in earnest, is that they can't try to tell jokes because no one can tell whether they are being serious or not.

Yeah I know, I was rephrasing to make it the same as the "Jesus / Christ" duality, "Santa / Claus".
 
2013-12-14 08:00:43 AM  
Way to bring the heat, Megyn.
 
2013-12-14 08:00:46 AM  
It's so endearing that so many Christians proclaim the whiteness of Jesus yet won't let Jews into their country clubs.
 
2013-12-14 08:01:31 AM  
Gee Ms, Kelly, now you know what it's like to be President Obama or just about any liberal in the eyes of your viewers...

"You didn't build that"....
 
2013-12-14 08:01:38 AM  

Dansker: St. Nicholas was from Anatolia, so he was something between Greek and Turkish,


Greek. The Turks wouldn't arrive until 700 years later.

You can say that's white, but it's more of a Mediterranean white. Olive complexion. Definitely not nordic.
 
2013-12-14 08:02:51 AM  
Sheesh, Libtards - stop taking things so seriously. Megyn Kelly is a comedian, and she's just asking questions furthermore.

It's a relief to find out this wasn't just a carefully planned PR stunt to stir up controversy and drive up ratings.
 
2013-12-14 08:05:09 AM  
This is what happens when conservatives accidentally say what they really think.

That was neither meant to be bolded nor linked. Sorry. I'll just go sit in the corner now.
 
2013-12-14 08:10:06 AM  
I could give her the benefit of the doubt (that it was a joke) because conservative humor is just that bad.  But the "I'm the real victim here" mentality tells me she is being defensive because it was actually something more than a simple "joke" - and that is not even going into the Jesus comments and the panel.
 
2013-12-14 08:10:08 AM  
The appropriate answer to Ms. Kelly, in order...

a)  fark you
b) fark you
c) And fark you
 
2013-12-14 08:10:27 AM  
Since there's no corroborating evidence that Jesus existed at all, we might as well say he was white.  Hell, his actual name was Decius, he was from Germania and he did payroll for the Roman army and was generally well-liked by his co-workers and neighbours.  All that Bethlehem stuff was made up by the Council of Nicaea.  You cannot prove I'm wrong.
 
2013-12-14 08:12:40 AM  
Wait.... did she just ignore the Jesus comments, which I think was the only thing people actually commented on?
 
2013-12-14 08:13:51 AM  

Ishkur: Dansker: St. Nicholas was from Anatolia, so he was something between Greek and Turkish,

Greek. The Turks wouldn't arrive until 700 years later.


I wasn't talking about nationality, but appearance, as in "he would look like something between a typical modern greek and ditto turk.

You can say that's white, but it's more of a Mediterranean white. Olive complexion. Definitely not nordic.

Yeah, like I said, swarthy.
 
2013-12-14 08:13:53 AM  
OOOOOOoooh it's a joke!

Lets run further with it. If Jesus was white, and according to the blessed trinity, Jesus is also God, then God is white. If God made Adam and Eve in his own image, then Adam and Eve were white too. Meaning all non-white folks weren't created directly by the hand of God. Therefore, let us use this very justification to oppress and subjugate the non whites, and make them into the second class citizens that God decided they ought to be. Wouldn't that be a hilarious joke?

OOh wait, we already did that, for the previous two thousand years. Damn, all the good jokes have already been said, huh? Oh well. Now I can claim to be a victim if someone disagrees!
 
2013-12-14 08:18:32 AM  
Well, to be fair, how was she to know that there would be anyone watching who was not white.
 
2013-12-14 08:24:14 AM  
In other news, when caught saying something stupid, sociopaths will claim they meant it as a joke and everyone else is stupid for believing they were serious.

racial divide has gotten small enuf that the important (myth) characters can be accepted by all
and some coont says "not yours"
thats the issue

redheededstepchild: Wait, did any of them say anything about penguins?


Nobody farks with the penguins man.
 
2013-12-14 08:29:01 AM  
Well, that was utter bullshiat. She was clearly trying to tell the Salon blogger she was wrong and that Santa IS white, non debatable, case closed.

And that the Jesus was white argument is "far from settled" is another bullshiat response. I would love to know what she "learned in the last couple days" that has swayed he opinion.

Megyn, you and your network are targets because of the stupid that comes out of your mouths, period.
 
2013-12-14 08:29:25 AM  
But wait, I thought racism was over! Didn't I just recently see something about Rosa Parks ending it back in the day?

Keep digging. Just keep digging. You'll see daylight soon enough.

Swearsies.
 
2013-12-14 08:34:44 AM  
She was given such an easy out by the rather clever and nuanced "Jesus" vs "the Christ" analysis.


She's too dumb to realise that though.
 
2013-12-14 08:34:52 AM  
Well, bless your poor little, oppressed, bound up on a cross, "the only moral maternity leave is my maternity leave", stripper-named heart.
