While Carlson’s co-host Steve Doocy was outside interviewing members of the U.S. Navy Band about their recent inclusion of women, Carlson’s other co-host, Brian Kilmeade, proclaimed, “Women are everywhere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control.”
While the remark may (or may not) have been in jest, as the saying goes, there’s truth in jest — at least, the “truth” from the jester’s point of view. Clearly, Kilmeade has misogynistic tendencies.
Carlson, obviously angered, stood up, and said, “You read the headlines. Since men are so great. Take them away,” referring to all women.
Kilmeade, undeterred, and unapologetic, responded, “All right. Finally,” and added, “Leaving an all male crew” and, disgustingly, “she needed a shower.”
Saying, “I would have thought she’d be used to it, working at Fox News,” Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs called Fox & Friends “one of the craziest, most despicable shows on Fox.” He adds:
Creationism, climate change denial, racism; name a far right malfunction and you can bet Fox & Friends promotes it.
Carlson, who while at Stanford also studied at Oxford, “was raised in Anoka, Minnesota and graduated from Anoka-Hennepin School District 11′s Anoka High School, where she was the 1984 class valedictorian. One of her childhood nannies was Michele Bachmann, the future Republican congresswoman,” Wikipedia notes.
The Anoka-Hennepin School District has been the locus of extreme anti-gay attack, and is home to a parents’ group that was just certified as an anti-gay hate group.
One has to wonder, however, why the folks at Mediaite felt the need to place the word “sexist” in quotes?
