Megyn Kelly teamed up with her old Eric Holder-smearing pal, J. Christian Adams, to “discuss” Sen. Ted Cruz’ call to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder. Kelly didn’t say a word about Adams’ discredited racial accusations against Holder – which Kelly once spent weeks hyping. But this time, she noted that impeachment was unlikely to happen and “merely” suggested as an alternative that Congress cut off Holder’s pay
Kelly has some kind of personal issue with Holder and much of it seems to be based on his race. Adams seems to be her favorite helpmate. In January, shortly after Kelly’s famous “assurance” that Santa is white, when she launched yet another race-baiting attack on Holder, I summed up her history of bogus accusations with Adams in a case involving the New Black Panther Party:
Megyn “Santa is white” Kelly’s partner-in-Holder-race-baiting is the discredited J. Christian Adams - who, you may recall, helped her smear Attorney General Eric Holder as some kind of black radical who is prejudiced against white people and condones black voter intimidation against them. That is, until Kelly abruptly dropped her attacks once she was confronted on the air for her race baiting a phony story. The story was later discredited but Kelly - who advocates “personal responsibility” for others - didn’t seem to think she owed her viewers much of an explanation.
Kelly introduced Adams by saying he is “a former DOJ attorney and legal editor of PJ Media.” The fact that Kelly didn’t say a word about the New Black Panther Party controversy – which her then-show, America Live, spent more than 3.5 hours and 46 segments discussing - speaks volumes about how she’d prefer to sweep that particular embarrassment under the rug. And not allow it to interfere with Fox’s current smears of Holder.
The grounds for this particular attack was Holder’s apparent decision not to appoint a special prosecutor in the IRS matter.
Adams opened up an avenue for race baiting, saying that Holder had put the matter in the Civil Rights Division “where non-traditional civil rights cases go to die.” Suggesting, of course, that Holder will never pursue civil rights cases unless they help African Americans.
However, Kelly didn’t bite this piece of race bait. She said that impeachment “doesn’t seem like that’s really going anywhere.” So she helpfully put forth an alternative route: “Could you stop paying him? Some folks have said, ‘Why doesn’t Congress just somehow stop paying him?’”
Kelly didn’t say who those “some folks” are.
Watch Kelly slyly advocate against Holder while disingenuously playing the role of a neutral host below.
Considering YOUR party has done NOTHING in terms of meaningful legislation since 1/3/2011 (when the GOP took over the House with the aid of the Teabaggers), I’d say it’s LONG overdue that Congress stops getting paid.
But, isn’t it funny that the majority of YOUR party—the folks responsible for the government shutdown—insisted on getting their government paychecks during the shutdown and had to be shamed into making sure that the innocent government workers/pawns of the shutdown got paid (something that had been done after previous shutdowns the SECOND that Congress got back in session)? And you want to stop paying Holder? Just because you and “some folks” don’t like him (mainly ‘cause he’s black) is NOT sufficient reason to stop paying his salary. You find a legitimate reason that he shouldn’t be paid and you present it for serious consideration. Until then, Megyn, shut your piehole. (At least until Rupert and Roger need your “other” oral services. I mean, “some people say” that’s the real reason you work for FoxNoise.)
