‘Bow Tie’N White Boy’: Democrat Strategist(Jehmu Greene) Hurls Racial Slur at Tucker Carlson

‘Bow Tie’N White Boy’: Democrat Strategist Hurls Racial Slur at Tucker Carlson

Bryan Preston

A racist comment may have ripple effects after airing on the Fox News Channel this afternoon. Democrat strategist Jehmu Greene and the Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson appeared on Megyn Kelly’s 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 Greene’s 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, it’s unfair now. Indeed, it’s indefensible and that’s why she doesn’t 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 tie’n 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 didn’t call you a name.”

It should be noted that Tucker Carlson was not wearing a bow tie during the segment.

If I were Chatsworth Osborne III aka Tucker Carlson I’d be mightily offended that someone called me a “bow tie wearing white boy.” Because everyone knows Carlson is a very rich btwwb and not just any white boy who wears a bow tie. Hrrrrumph, the impudence of Greene.

She has to go because if Tucker referred to “kinky haired black girls”, that would be the end of him. No double standards. Race hate is deadly for the targets and the Liberals are targeting a new minority - white men.

Black racism has now lynched dozens of whites in the name of Trayvon and in one of those attacks the victim was referred to as a “honkey tree monkey.” Obama and Holder has unleashed the black racists leftists like this racist pig on Fox have jacked up.

Good for Megyn Kelly for apologizing to the viewers.

Of course, it should have been Greene’s apology, but everyone got the point. Racism will not be tolerated on Kelly’s show.

Yes this is getting scary. There have been so many attacks on white people by black mobs, that it would be wise to avoid large cities these days. Pajamas Media has a story about how numerous and violent these attacks are becoming.

There is a war on white people.

No doubt, and she obviously thinks she'll get away with it.

Will FOX NEWS do anything about it, that's what I want to know.

Packs of black racists began attacking whites in the cities last summer, big time. Trayvon is just the latest excuse.

Black racists think that since Obama is the president and Holder told Congress that Blacks (”his people”) won’t be prosecuted for violating the civil rights of other people, it’s the Tan with the Klan’s heyday. They think hate and violence against whites is black race power.

I would not accidently end up in a Black area of the city. Conceal carry is a good idea right now and always be aware of who is around you in parking lots.

Funny what people say when forced off script. I have few doubts this reflects Ms. Greene’s true feelings about the political opposition. Prejudice is an ugly thing, no matter where it comes from.

A racist comment may have ripple effects after airing...I doubt it - how many years ago did Donna Brazile make the crack about "we're not going to let the white boys win this election", and she's still riding high at CNN - we even had a few prominent voices here on Free Republic defending her - have to show the opposition how open-minded and tolerant we are, dontcha know.....

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?

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.

Already being done. You just need to do a little looking to find them. PJ Media/TV with Bill Whittle (IMO) is a good place to start.
Some sites do daily videos. Some sites only do weekly.

Some videos you just get by being around a while and being out and about and in the know...like with Alfonzo Rachel aka Zo - Macho Sauce Productions here at FR.

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.

...”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...

Tucker is white and he often wears bow ties. The only thing he is not, is a “boy”. I would hardly call this a ‘racial’ slur. Let’s not be too sensitive here. Greene is an idiot. Don’t give him the honor of being smart enough to be able to insult someone.

Ummm, I think the comment “white” is more the issue. There is NO reason why “white” needed to be inserted into the commentary. And Megyn obviously agreed. Oh yes, he is a she. Maybe you should actually watch the video.

“There is a war on white people.”
They damn well better hope it does not come to a shooting war. Out manned, out armed ain't no good way to go into a fight.
How may black hunters have you ever seen? How many firearms do most black homes have? What is the percentage of blacks in this country with military experience?
With approximate 40 million blacks out of a population of 300+ million, that ain't good odds. Even if the questions above were answered with much higher numbers. If I were Jesse, Al, Eric and Barry, I think I would turn down the rhetoric just a tad.

I think Fox should go the other direction. Allow Shamu Greene to vent her blowhole as much as she wants. Same with Ms Jackson. Hell, invite Farrakhan on to have a segment all to himself.

Have the Fox audience have a GOOD LONG LOOK at the face of the Democrat Party.
