‘Just Went Full Goebbels’
“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade once again is under fire for sharing his racist views on the Fox News morning show. On Friday Kilmeade weighed in on the 2400 or so migrant children who were kidnapped by the Trump administration, are being held hostage, and likely will not be reunited with their parents.
“Like it or not, these aren’t our kids,” Kilmeade told his co-hosts. “Show them compassion, but it’s not like [Trump is] doing this to the people of Idaho or Texas. These are people from another country.”

In other words, kids from Central America aren’t as important as kids from the US. (So much for “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.”)
This is far from his first dance with racism. It was just Tuesday that Kilmeade launched a racist attack against the immigrant children, claiming that “a lot of them” will turn into MS-13 gang members. And Kilmeade has lamented that Americans “keep marrying other species and other ethnics.”
Many on social media expressed outrage over yet another of Kilmeade’s racist rants.
The idea of treating children differently is appalling. And to do so so to motivate a political agenda is even more so. Shameful. https://t.co/T2WnDlD46r

“These aren’t our kids.”@kilmeade is a racist. This is the definition of racism. This clip should hang around his neck for the rest of his life. (I’d say career, but in a just world anyone who spoke like this on TV in the 21st Century would no longer have one.) https://t.co/DD1rttlmGO

Kilmeade is a stone cold racist

Kilmeade’s comment is incredibly revealing about the mindset of white supremacists. They know what they’re doing is morally wrong, so they have to create artificial differences between “our kids” and “them” to reconcile their cognitive dissonance. It’s Dehumanization 101.

@kilmeade is a racist POS . Has taken to being quite obvious about it, as this story goes on.
Look @FoxNews viewers. This is your thing, racism. But no way in hell is it the position of the vast majority.
Your little propaganda network only works on old white people anyways. https://t.co/DXUtsh40FI

Hey @kilmeade, nobody is saying the people coming from Mexico and South America are more important than citizens in the United States, your spin for @realDonaldTrump is ridiculous. It’s expected though since you work for the propaganda network @FoxNews. https://t.co/PaIJva4mXr

Somebody sing him the Jesus loves the little children song, please. Maybe save his ghoulish, racist soul.

This is disgusting – they’re all just openly racist and xenophobic now. Fox needs to be taken off the air.

Watch: Greg McMichael’s Defense Attorney Blames Ahmaud Arbery and His ‘Long, Dirty Toenails’ for His Own Murder
The attorney for Greg McMichael, one of three white men on trial for the felony murder of Ahmaud Arbery, blamed the victim for his own murder.
Laura Hogue spared no effort to dehumanize Arbery, a 25-year old Black man who was jogging through her client’s Georgia neighborhood, telling the jury he was no “innocent victim.”
“Turning Ahmaud Arbery into a victim after the choices that he made, does not reflect the reality of what brought Ahmaud Arbery to Satilla Shores in his khaki shorts, with no socks, to cover his long, dirty toenails,” Hogue said in open court, dramatically, as she paused between each of her last words, with Arbery’s mother reportedly in the room.
During closing arguments on Monday, an attorney for Greg McMichael raised eyebrows by making a comment about #AhmaudArbery “in his khaki shorts, with no socks, to cover his long dirty toenails.” @LawCrimeNetwork pic.twitter.com/2ezGRpp2dN

Watch: Newsmax Host Goes on Racist Rant Accusing Biden of ‘Waging War’ to ‘Dilute’ the Suburbs With ‘Invading’ Migrants
Far right wing Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield delivered a racist, white supremacist attack on “globalist” President Joe Biden, accusing him of “waging war” on America’s suburbs, wanting to “dilute” them via an army of “invading” migrants, whom he called “low-skilled, uneducated future Democrat voters.”
Stinchfield, like Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, has a history of racist rhetoric that Newsmax appears very comfortable with.
Thursday night, as Media Matters reports, he tried the same reverse logic, declaring there is “a war on minorities, as rich, white, powerful Democrat elitists use those illegals for their own political gain and power grab. The fact is, the Democrats want to hold all people of color back.”
Stinchfield began by declaring it’s “no coincidence that the unvaxxed are also under assault – many of them are conservatives. Think about the war against them. Team Biden wants the unvaxxed destroyed, financially ruined even. It’s about stopping the spread alright – the spread of conservatism.”
he went on to claim that “Joe Biden is waging war on the suburbs – suburbs that are literally being invaded. It is an invasion of poverty – low-skilled, uneducated future Democrat voters. That invasion originates on our southern border, of course. Open border globalists like Team Biden will tell you the next round of 80,000 Haitians and who knows how many more Central Americans is about compassion, they say. It’s not. It’s about the battle to dilute your neighborhood in an effort to turn it into a city center.”
He continued his racist rant, lamenting that ‘the mainstream media is not going to tell you” this. (he’s right there, because it’s false.)
“All of this actually amounts to a war on minorities as rich, white, powerful Democrat elitists use those illegals for their own political gain and power grab. The fact is, the Democrats want to hold all people of color back. That battle starts in our nation’s underperforming schools. Pushing division, racist policies, all in the name of critical race theory.”
Rand Paul Unleashes Racist Attack on Democrat Charles Booker by Calling Him His ‘Racial Left Opponent’
U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) on Friday set off racist dog whistle alarms by sending a fundraising email to supporters announcing his new 2022 Democratic challenger, Charles Booker, and describing him as his “racial left opponent.”
Booker, the former state representative who narrowly lost the Kentucky Democratic Party’s nomination in the primary to oppose Republican Senator Mitch McConnell, is Black.
The email makes clear the Paul campaign is going to make this fight about race.
“Dear _______,” the email begins, “yesterday I got an Act-Blue backed racial left opponent for my reelection.”
Senator Paul last year infamously and “single-handedly” blocked the Emmett Till anti-lynching bill, as America was strongly focused on the Black Lives Matter movement during the protests supporting George Floyd.
But the Republican from Kentucky wasn’t done focusing on “race.”
“That means millions likely coming in to attack me and lie about me in my race,” he adds in a curiously-worded sentence that, again, gets supporters to focus on race.
Booker posted the email on social media:
“Racial left opponent?”
Rand Paul can’t see the people of Kentucky. And he clearly can’t see past the color of my skin. pic.twitter.com/A1RM5wIvAt
