Politico: Megyn Kelly said Friday evening she was making off-hand 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.See, Kelly was just joking around. But liberals are so brainwashed by their PC rules that they have no sense of humor any more. That explains why late night comedians couldn’t tell either, because… OK, you just lost me there Megs. The undisputed experts at comedy detected no comedy — attempted or otherwise.
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.
"I realize that the piece by [Aisha] Harris which went on to argue that Santa should be a penguin was also tongue in cheek. That’s in part why we covered the story in the first place,” Kelly said. “Humor is part of what we try to bring to the show. Sometimes that’s lost on the humorless.”
Kelly played several clips of other networks and late-night comedians discussing or making jokes about the Santa segment. The frenzied reaction would be funny Kelly said, “if it were not so telling of our society if any the knee jerk instinct to race bait” and attributed part of the blow back to Fox News’ popularity.
What we see here is the time-honored “I am rubber, you are glue” defense. Conservatives love to defend racism by claiming the people who notice it are the real racists. That’s how their whole “reverse racism” scam got started in the first place — as a way to claim that anti-racist policies and sentiments were in themselves racist.
In other words, people who complained about her segment are just racist against white people and Megyn Kelly — like every conservative everywhere in every minute of their lives — is the real victim. Just ask any of them, they’ll show you all the victim cards you want.
Conservatives often go off on long lectures about “personal responsibility.” You’d think they’d try a little themselves occasionally.
