Brian Kilmeade Apologizes For Yet Another Stupid Comment

Reported by Priscilla - October 18, 2010 -

Last year, Fox “Friend” Brian Kilmeade apologized for his statement about how Americans don’t have the pure genes of the Swedes because they marry other species (Shitake mushrooms? Chilean sea bass?). Because that remark, according to “Journalists of Color,” had a taint of white supremacy (whites and non whites are different species) Kilmeade (Irish and Italian) did issue an apology for his “inappropriate” comment. Flash forward to 2010 and Kilmeade is once again apologizing for not just an inappropriate but a seriously uninformed and possibly Islamophobic (history of Kilmeade's anti-Islamic comments here) assertion that “all terrorists are Muslim.” It was short and not very sweet. An acerbic Kilmeade explained that his remark was made during a discussion of Bill O’Reilly’s “View” appearance. He repeated his infamous quote, “not all Muslims are terrorists; but all terrorists are Muslim” and said that he “misspoke” and that he doesn’t "believe that all terrorists are Muslims.” He said that he was sorry if he “offended or hurt anybody’s feelings.” He ended with a defiant “but that’s it.” So there it is, folks. Was this a sincere apology from somebody who realized that words do matter or was this just a response to management’s request (not a "reprimand" because Brian said that doesn't happen to him) as in “I’m only doing this because I have to, nyah, nyah, nyah….!!"
