A racist comment may have ripple effects after airing on the Fox News Channel this afternoon. Democrat strategist Jehmu Greene and the Daily Callers Tucker Carlson appeared on Megyn Kellys show America Live, when Greene went after Carlson personally. Twitter lit up immediately:
After a commercial break, Kelly reappeared and said that she had consulted with producers to find out if she heard Greene say what she thought she heard. Kelly then apologized to Carlson on behalf of herself and the Fox News Channel for Greenes insult.
What remains to be seen is if there will be any additional fallout for Jehmu Greene. NBC will not have to creatively edit it to make it sound racist. Her comment, reversed in any way, would have created an instant firestorm on the left. Media Matters would have republished its entire dossier on Carlson, and may in fact do that in an effort to defend Jehmu Greene. As of this writing, Greene has not apologized for her comment.

Carlson and Greene were debating Democrat Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, the competence of her campaign and her history of using minority status to gain employment advantage, which Warren denies. It was during this debate that things got heated and Greene unleashed on Carlson.
CARLSON: It was unfair when it happened under segregation, its unfair now. Indeed, its indefensible and thats why she doesnt want to talk about this, because she did gain material advantage by lying about her ethnic background. And no one should gain advantage because of his ethnic background, period.
GREENE: Tucker! Tucker! Elizabeth Warren has been very clear that she has not gained advantage
CARLSON: No she has not been clear.
GREENE: And at the end of the day, she won the teaching award at Harvard two years in a row, she won teaching awards at the University of Pennsylvania, at the University of Michigan, at the University of Houston. To question this woman on her qualifications is going to be something that does appeal to folks like you, voters like you, bow tien white boys, but at the end of the day it is going to backfire
Carlson calls Greene out for name calling, and Greene immediately responds I didnt call you a name.
It should be noted that Tucker Carlson was not wearing a bow tie during the segment.
Hmm...maybe that’s why Beck went the Internet route. Well why not the Internet?
Well, at least her and 20 of her friends didn’t beat Carlson half to death while shouting “Justice for Travon” ... she at least confines her racist hate to verbal slurs ...
“bow tien white boys”
sounds even worse than
bow tie wearing white boys
Blacks usually take great umbrage at being referred to as “boy”. But it seemed a faily casual swipe for her to use that perjorative for the white Carlson.
But she instantly objects, “I didn’t call him a name.”
Hmm. Who’s the racist here?
I hope Fox gets rid of her.
Tucker Carlson was not wearing a bowtie today, that’s true. HOWEVER - until he became a regular on Fox, and in all the time he was at CNN, he did wear a bowtie - to the point that it was considered his trademark. Obviously, that’s what the racist Jehmu Greene had in mind when she realized she’d lost the argument and needed something to smack down that “insolent” “white boy”.
Megan Kelly actually seemed stunned and disgusted as she offered up the station’s apology. Hopefully Fox will have the decency and cajones to realize the episode should be treated as Greene’s Rubicon. Fox needs to realize their tolerating the BET mentality in “contributors” is doing them irreputable harm. Though since they’ve recently hired Sadita Jackson to sling around her racist rants, perhaps Fox has decided to take the suck-up-to-Barry road more overtly.
Sadita Jackson, daughter of Jesse Jackson - Michelle Obama’s best friend since childhood, as in Michelle says she spent more time at Jackson’s house than at her own. The same Sadita Jackson who was Michelle’s maid of honor when she jumped the broom with the Won.
DOH! (Envision Homer Simpson face palm). They are excellent.
I used to keep Fox on in the background throughout the day but since they’ve been bringing on more radical lefties it’s become unwatchable.
Jehmu Greene’s hateful, racist outburst just confirms my decision. I don’t need to listen to that crap.
If all the white men stayed home for a day,or stopped spending money for a day,how much would the country suffer?
A lot. Maybe white males ought to do one of those use 2 dollar bill things the liberals love to show the spending power we have.
but we’re too busy working and paying our bills to do such a thing.
I disagree. That is when you see their true feelings...
Jehmu Greene, the black chick who goes into a grinning, trance-like state like a rocker groupie on Ecstacy at the mere mention of the words “Barack Obama”...
I like the sound of "Obama's war on white people."
...”Greene is racist, like many tolerant Dims”...
From the very first time I saw Jehmu Greene on FOX, I felt that she was another Winnie Mandella who would, given the chance, necklace you if you were white while not batting an eye. Couldn’t believe FOX was having her on over and over again. With her comments to Tucker Carlson, I believe my intuition was correct.
I'll bet NBC - racist creepy little network that they are - didn't 'cover' this comment... They're like the Southern Poverty Law Center - they ONLY go after white middle class people on the 'right'.
What is even more offensive to me is the idiot using the term “at the end of the day” twice in one sentence. The use of the phrase is to avoid having to defend you dumb position in the first place.
At the end of the day it will get dark is the only proper use of the stupid phrase. Idiot...
I hope they keep this up and show America their true selves.
