    Megyn Kelly devotes quarter hour to discussing Megyn Kelly's thoughts on Jesus, Santa

    by

    Megyn Kelly on Fox News with quote: 'I mean, Jesus was a white man too. He was a historical figure, that's a verifiable fact. As is Santa—I just want the kids watching to know that.' Noooooo. Please stop.

    Megyn Kelly said Friday evening she was making offhand and "tongue-in-cheek" comments about Santa Claus and Jesus Christ being white, and that the controversy over the segment is a result of "race-baiting" while the real debate was lost.  

    Devoting more than 15 minutes of "The Kelly File" to the subject and bringing on two panelists to discuss the reaction, Kelly said the original Wednesday segment was just a way to bring some humor to her show.

    No, seriously. Just stop.

    The frenzied reaction would be funny, Kelly said, "if it were not so telling of our society. In particular the knee jerk instinct by so many to race bait."

    I don't want to pay attention to you anymore, this is cruel ...

    "I also did say Jesus was white. As I've learned in the past two days, that is far from settled," she said.

    You just learned that now. Just now, and only because people were making fun of you. Wow, you and Richard Cohen should totally form a  Stuff I Just Learned Last Week club or something.

    so?

    Megyn Kelly

    - well educated, intelligent and articulate

    - stuning good looks

    - white

    - conservative

    New hate target for the left. They are getting tired of bashing Rush Limbaugh.

    Maybe someone else here said this (WDYWN?) but if this is all we have worry about - if Jesus and Santa are white - then things can't be all that bad.

    She is exactly right, one smart journalist. And she doesnt put up with BS, either this, or famously, Karl Rove on election night.
    The pathetic juvenile hacks at dailykos cant lay a finger on her.

    "The lady doth protest"

     

    Can't she just admit it was a slip?

     

    Even Mr. P**P-on-Palin apologized.

    [/QUOTE]

    He not only aploogized...he resigned.

    Would that have happened on FOX?

    Unlikely.

    CLC,

    It was hardly just DailyKos.

    As Megyn herself said in this second go around, "it was a frenzied reaction...".

    DailyKos alone did not produce a "frenzied reaction" nor was this 2nd go around prompted by one website.

    She has it exactly backwards - the reason this drew attention at all was because of her knee-jerk reaction to a discussion about a fictional character by turning to the audience and re-assuring them the fictional character's race matches their pre-conceived notions.  Who does that?

    I don't think it was a racist comment by Kelly, so much as it was evidence that she views her audience as racist.

    Ms. Kelly has since punk'd herself on the non-issue, and like many other tv news talkers, takes herself and her opinions way too seriously.

    Mr. Stewart and SNL have already squeezed the meme of its remaining comic potential.  No need for Megan to add any more....

     

    But Jesus was definitely black.
