On Fox & Friends this morning, regular guest Kevin Jackson offered his shocking prescription for Baltimore. Host Kimberly Guilfoyle smiled and nodded her head in agreement.
In this segment, Guilfoyle "asked" if a spike in crime in Baltimore could have "anything to do" with a "crackdown in our nation's law enforcement."
"These are alarming numbers. What do you attribute it to?" Guilfoyle asked.
Jackson seems to have no credentials in policing, urban policy or sociology. He does, however, regularly appear on Fox News to make race-baiting attacks on black officials. Today, he took that role to a whole new level.
JACKSON: Well, Stephanie (sic), I wrote a piece a while back called, "Why America Needs A white, Republican President." And I will tell you, if Baltimore had a white, Republican mayor, you wouldn't be talking about cops right now. You'd be talking about the accountability and where it lies. The idea that Baltimore and the Justice Department are looking at police is ridiculous. And you're seeing the outcome. I predicted this when Ferguson erupted.
Rather than challenge such blatant racism, host Guilfoyle signaled her approval.

NOTE TO KIMBETTE
Why don’t you write a book about Don Imus insulting your fellow female co-worker with every name in the book. Oh, that’s right. Your fat salary is more important than your so-called “morals”, you worthless attorney.
As to his contention about a “white Republican President,” maybe Ben Carson needs to remind him that he’s just been dismissed as a potential President. And what does that say for Bobby Jindal’s aspirations? (I mean, of course, you and I both know—as do the majority of readers of this site—that there’s no way in Hell that any “minority” is ever going to get that highest of all “honors” with the current batch of GOP primary voters. But still…..for a FoxNoise guest to come right out and say so—even if he’s not aware that’s what he’s done—it still says something about the network.)
Now, as to the “white Republican male” for mayor of Baltimore, bear in mind the only way that could happen is for some major league voter fraud (you know—the stuff right-wingers so vehemently oppose unless it happens to favor them) since the city is 63% African-American and only 29% White (getting a little more specific, only 28% non-Hispanic White—aka, the approved-by-FoxNoise White). So, either the GOP somehow needs to disenfranchise a whole load of African-Americans or get a lot of white GOPers to move into Baltimore to offset all the “blah” people.
FOX will be the downfall of America.
