Is it any coincidence that perky, Southern, blonde, traditional values adherent Ainsley Earhardt would simply gush over perky, Southern blonde, traditional values adherent Alexis Bloomer who posted a "viral" Facebook video in which she, a millennial, scolds her fellow millennials for being nasty, bad people.
Tuesday, Fox News Insider introduced real Americans to a real American millennial gal who has dared to speak out against her fellow millennials who listen to "obscene music," don't respect their elders, and shame Tim Tebow whilst revering the Kardashians. It's something that Fox viewers, who yearn for the days when kids and blacks knew their place, would love. So, Thursday, it was no surprise to see Ms. Bloomer share her old-school morality on America's old-school morality morning show, Fox & Friends.
Earhardt reported that "one Millennial is just fed up with her generation and she is calling them out" in her viral video. She showed part of the video in which Bloomer, who could be straight out of Fox's central casting, talked about how millennials just don't measure up to the kinds of standards espoused by Fox central casting. She accused her generation of creating divisiveness in our society by "celebrating" what "used to be frowned upon." (Eww, like interracial dating and, god forbid, gay marriage?)
After Earhardt asked "why her message is resonating with so many people," sweet, lil Alexis whined about bad behavior, which she claims to have witnessed, which prompted her video response. Naturally, she put herself above this bad behavior because she was taught to be respectful. She described the video as a "call to action." Earhardt said "wow," and asked if this "was not scripted." (As if...!!!) Bloomer asserted that she "went for it and it resonated well with everyone..."
The answer, to Earhardt's question of how her parents and neighbors felt, was predictable. Naturally, they are all just thrilled to pieces because this is what our country is "waiting to hear." Earhardt: "wow." She said that she was "proud" of Bloomer's "positive message" that other young'uns need to hear. Bloomer (who is a "huge fan" of Earhardt) urged Millenials to "lead by example" and act with "kindness and respect." (Just like Donald Trump?)
Despite the Fox message that this message has been universally acclaimed, that, as with everything else on Fox, is a crock. Raw Story described her rant as "incredibly stupid." Ana Kasparian asks if Bloomer has been "locked in a conservative bubble" which has filtered out all the sex, drugs, and rock & roll that has been happening for a long time. She states that in "minimizing the economic struggles of millennials," Bloomer "is downright insulting, and shifts the blame of the failed economic policies of our elders onto us."
But Aleksander Chan, on Fusion, says it best: "Bloomer exhibits the exact sense of sense of entitlement and superiority she means to criticize, but conveniently absolves herself of those sins. Posting a video of yourself delivering a takedown of millennials and their entitled asses on Facebook is the most millennial thing to do."
Ms. Bloomer would be so perfect for Fox News. Watch your back Ainsley, today's fan might be tomorrow's replacement!!!
