Megyn Kelly: "Every Significant Historical Figure Has Been White."

Any truth to this?

Megyn Kelly of Fox News is at it again. Just last week she faced a public backlash when she announced that both Santa and Jesus were white. She tried to backtrack on the comment after many late night comedians used her as fodder for their shows, pointing out that one, Santa isn’t real and the historical figure he is based on Saint Nicholas was Turkish and likely brown skinned and two, that Jesus was Middle Eastern and also brown skinned. She claimed on her next show that it was all just a joke but her true colors came out on last night’s show when the cameras turned off but her mic was still on.

The panel which included Bernard Whitman, a Democratic strategist, Arthur Aidala, a legal analyst for Fox and Monica Crowley, a conservative commentator had just finished a heated debated about the suspension of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for making anti-gay comments. They argued about 1st amendment rights.

When the segment concluded Whitman asked Kelly if she thought her erroneous comments about Santa and Jesus would fall under protected speech. That’s when everything went horribly wrong for Kelly. Not realizing her mic was still on and she was being recorded, she announced that she stood by her statements and thought it was ridiculous that she had to apologize. She continued stating, “Look, every significant historical figure has been white.”

Whitman was understandably shocked and countered with, “What about Gandhi?” Kelley fired back, “He was obviously white. Everyone knows that.” Aidala and Crowley agreed with Megyn’s analysis. Whitman shot back again with a list of influential figures, “Martin Luther King, Mandela, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Cleopatra.” Her response sent Whitman storming out of the studio. “I said significant. None of those people are significant.”

No word yet about how Fox News is going to handle this situation. If those in charge run true to form Kelly will likely get a bonus.

Man, if that's a reference to something, I'm comfortable saying it's sailed far above my head.

Should I be looking up Urban Dictionary? I really have no idea what that means or what I'm supposed to do with that information.

You have to keep in mind: I'm really, really stupid. Like, absurdly so.

You have to say it out loud, try a fake New England accent, like JFK or something:

proper gander

FreeWoodPost.com is intended for a mature, sophisticated, and discerning audience.Glance around a bit first.
Or notice that NO ONE ELSE ON THE INTERTUBES was carrying this amazing incendiary story.

P.S. the comments in the article on the very site are a hoot to boot.
For "satire" it might barely meet the definition, but it is pretty lame satire. It's basically a made-up story that could seem legit with one made-up statement in the middle. It's not clever or funny. Compare to The Onion, who knows how to do this.

EDIT: Some of the other stories on the site are a little better, but still way below Onion quality.

When you read the title of the thread, did it sound believable? Even a little bit?

Are you saying Jesus WASN'T white? He wasn't EUROPEAN WHITE but he was still "white" as in caucasoid. Just like all the rest of the middle east has been for millennia.

The whole idea of races is actually pretty silly and mostly based on some seriously arbitrary cranial features. But it is what it is. You have 3 choices. Negroid, Caucasoid and Mongoloid. Are you proposing that Jesus was one of the other choices? Are you Mormon?

(the Mormon joke has to do with Native Americans.. which are Mongoloid last I checked.)

Wrong, Again, Jooz!!

Jooz in ball shaped ships from 600 BC.

And FTR, Jesus still helicoptered into Jackson County Missouri from the ME after they rolled the rock away.

Just on reading the thread title alone, I thought it might be something either made up or something taken out of context. I WAS hoping it was true though.

Just seemed like a lame approach to make fun of the story. Since the humorous part of this was that she was defending Santa, perhaps a funnier angle might have been if she was arguing about the racial background of the Smurfs or something. I should probably be a comedy writer.

Do you think that was the distinction being drawn here by Kelly. Really. Racial typology. You don't think that would've come up in her non-apology segment a day or two later? No, Kelly implausibly argued she was joking, not that she was referring to biological anthropology.

I've got to admit, I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about here. Even if it were true, and I've got no real reason to dispute that it is, that's still a far ****ing cry from what Megyn Kelly's audience is hearing.

Still, I'd love a link about what you're talking about. Sounds interesting.
