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.
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.
I guess Jamoke will have to find another Job
“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. Lets not be too sensitive here. Greene is an idiot. Dont 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.
Close, real close. But not quiet.
As I remember others, or come across others, I'll try to remember to give you a link.
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.
Put lipstick on a pig and...
That's the spirit, maybe they'll come for you last.
No she won't. If the odious Alan Colmes didn't lose his job after his horrible comment about how Rick Santorum and his family "brought the dead baby home and played with it", Jehmu doesn't have anything to worry about.
“Have the Fox audience have a GOOD LONG LOOK at the face of the Democrat Party.”
That’s a great idea!
Well, there you go - just tuned into Fox’s News Watch program at 2:30 PM and who was the first guest introduced, with a big smile on her face - Jahmu Greene - apparently in this week for the usually ever-present Judy Miller - thoroughly disgusting - tuned right out - I simply will not watch another program or program segment that has her on - boycotts are not just for the left.......
I don't feel as strongly as you do, but I'd be willing to have 'stand your ground' laws changed to include a citizens right to shoot any person who used the phrase twice in five minutes...
Please do. We have a lot of work to do before Nov. I’ll be concentrating on House and Senate elections.
She wasn’t even given a small suspension, nor did she even have to apologize. I guess having Megyn Kelly apologize for Jehmu’s racist comments were enough.
