Racist Fox News fans must have enjoyed watching “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday morning when all three hosts, of the show, all of whom are white, pushed white supremacist propaganda.
Brian Kilmeade kicked off the racist tirade against people of color by demonizing the teaching of critical race theory, defined as a concept in which “racism is a social construct, and that it is not merely the product of individual bias or prejudice, but also something embedded in legal systems and policies.”
In other words, systemic racism is very real, something that conservatives across the country are desperate to deny even though it’s been obvious for decades. Republicans are now trying to pass bills to ban critical race theory from being taught in schools. It’s the kind of whitewashing of history that white supremacists have engaged in for a very long time. Kilmeade argued that white people are being “marginalized.”
“They’re not acknowledging any improvement in our culture, the gains made, how we are more equal, even despite our faults, than any other country,” Kilmeade said. “The other thing is they are not only trying to raise up minorities and make sure the playing field is even, they’re trying to take down the white culture. This generation of Americans wonders why aren’t we all Americans? Why are we being marginalized on a daily basis based on our gender, our sexuality, and the color of our skin. And it’s not even subtle! It is actually out there! It is written in black and white! We’ve seen the enemy and it’s white people and they wonder why people have a problem with it!”
Except that people of color are being murdered by police unlike in other countries. Other countries are also not pushing racist voter suppression laws. It’s outright false to claim that people of color are more equal here than elsewhere.
Ainsley Earhardt, like a true white supremacist, suggested replacing critical race theory in the classroom with the Bible, another whitewashed text that has been used for centuries to justify the mistreatment of people of color.
“It’s pretty simple what most families in America are teaching their kids and that’s the Golden Rule, to love others as yourself,” Earhardt said. “Don’t see people for skin color. We look to the Bible in my house. We love everybody. Everyone was created by God and we live in this great country where you can be anything that you want to be and you can be an individual. They’re trying to lump them in a group based on race. I want my daughter to be autonomous. She can stand on her own two feet. She can be an individual and be exactly who she wants to be and using the desires that God has given her for a bright future.”
Earhardt apparently also wants her daughter to defend slavery considering the bible was used for that purpose prior to and during the Civil War.
Steve Doocy then repeated the false notion that racism is somehow over in America because Barack Obama was president.
“It was just a couple of years ago where the United States of America elected an African-American as president of the United States,” Doocy said. “You know, the biggest entertainers, the biggest sports stars are African-Americans.”
Here’s the video via YouTube:
A lot of those sports stars took a knee in protest of racial injustice and police brutality, so just because many black people have achieved success, it doesn’t mean systemic racism doesn’t exist. Doocy also conveniently ignores that Republicans treated Obama like sh*t by hurling racist epithets and threatening to lynch him, proving that racism didn’t end then and it’s not over now.
Clearly, Fox News is straight-up white supremacist propaganda.
