Is Megyn Kelly a white supremacist?

I know that this question is almost rhetorical in its essence, but in spite of this, I haven't yet seen anyone attach that particular label on her in light of her insistence that both Jesus Christ and Santa Claus were white men. Troubling enough that she made a point of calling a Palestinian Jew Laborer, "white", someone, based on his heritage, occupation and geographical origin should have resembled a person more like Yasser Arafat than Jeffrey Hunter, but she made a point of declaring a completely made up person like Santa Claus a definitive caucasian.

This woman is (supposed to be) an adult. Surely she KNOWS that Santa Claus doesn't really exist. So why did she make of a point of insisting to any viewers of her program that were children that both Jesus and Santa were white? (Children? What child would watch her program?)

And there in lies the clue to her adherence to White supremacy, that's it important for her to emphasize the inherent whiteness of her own imagination. She wasn't making a statement of irrefutable fact, she was clearly expressing her own cultural mindset. A mindset hinged upon belief systems that prop up particular cultural icons with a White image.

Now, if you were go elsewhere in this world, particularly to any number of culturally homogenous societies that subscribe to either the Jesus and/or Santa Claus iconography, you'll find either one particular depiction of these figures, or another, or perhaps both, in that the figures are either representative of that particular culture, or are representative of a figure of the culture that imposed those images through a process of colonial inculturation.

Basically, Jesus and Santa could be Asian, African, Latino or anything else other than White. It's pretty much a toss up wherever you go. However, it's all too necessary in Megyn Kelly's mind, that for a culture composed of many other cultures, nationalities of origin and racial configurations that these wholly amorphously pliable figures be white.

Now of course, white supremacy is quite rampant throughout Fox News. That's a well established FACT. However, it was quite plain to see that Megyn Kelly's statement was essentially a visceral reaction against a perceived attack on her own white supremacy. In spite of the fact that she was talking about mythical figures, she was insistent that her own belief system remain bolstered by impressionable children, whose main duty would be to carry on that adherence to white supremacist principles. It's not just good enough that she believed in the intrinsic whiteness of Jesus and Santa, but as belief systems are always wont, there must be other believers as well, otherwise the value of those beliefs stand to be diminished through any absences of subscription.

God help this woman and her fear of a non-white planetů I wonder what she'd do if she ever realizes that most of the world is anything BUT white.

So there's my argument, what do you think?

1. Understandable that most

who agreed with you wouldn't see the need to reiterate.

Also understandable that the lone dissenter dasn't defend their vote.

EDIT:For those not overly familiar with etymology, "dasn't" is an archaic phrase from the 19th century meaning "dares not".

2. No. Like most of Faux's lineup, they are entertainers in it for the money.

They live in and near New York City and are indistinguishable from the 'big city elitists' that they rail against in their off camera lives.

Their audience is largely in the Deep South and 'flyover country,' as are most white supremacists.

8. +1

Kelly isn't a neo-Nazi; but she has enough sense to figure out that her paychecks are dependent on pandering to them....

4. No, she's a prime counterexample of the very notion of "White Supremacy"

6. I don't know. I think she's just playing to the Fox News viewers.

7. She should shut up

Us people who are blond don't need a certain stereotype reinforced.

And if the rumor is true that her hair color comes out of a bottle - she should go to her natural hair color out of respect for us.

9. She's an enabler



I doubt she belongs to the klan or neo-nazi movement. So, not so much an active white supremacist but not exactly innocent. Since as far as I can tell she is among millions who, don't question the premise that drives them.

11. White Supremacy might be going too far based on this one example

Certainly she has racial blinders on, and certainly she doesn't like having those racial blinders challenged. But White Supremacy implies to me that she wants whites to run everything; and while she may believe that, I think it's more likely that she believes the wealthy conservatives should run everything.

13. I saw the "report", with the bobbing, all-white talking heads.

Oh yeah, they are all, defacto white supremacists.

To see the "report" is to see the supremacy in action. Not a doubt about it.
Glad it got dragged in to the light for a moment. Hope folks remember it.

14. Maybe the Simpsons said it best...



To me, Kelley's comments were just a runaway train of stoopid. She probably thinks Jesus and Santa posed for all those paintings of them she saw as a kid. And Mt Rushmore must be a natural formation or surely we'd have included Reagan.
