So Megyn Kelly is the new ratings bad-ass and won’t apologize to front-runner Donald Trump for clearly going after him personally and unprofessionally during the first GOP debate? We can all at least agree she did a despicable job as a moderator, right?
Apologize? Nooooo, Megyn says she stands by her actions because, darn it, that’s her job!!
Well, it doesn’t surprise me, because this is by no means the first time that Ms. Kelly – in her zeal to appear to be tough on both sides – has beligerently, falsely and without provocation attacked and smeared someone on the right: by Baron Von Kowenhoven
In October of 2013, on her prime-time Fox News show, Megyn Kelly viciously slandered Samuel “Joe The Plumber” Wurzelbacher as a bigot and labled him a contemptible example of a hateful white male coming from “the Right.” Why?
Well, that day a satirical article entitled; ‘America Needs A White Republican President;” was re-posted on Wurzelbacher’s media website (www.JoeForAmerica.com) and various other sites.
So… probably without getting past the first sentence and in her lust to prove she’s the “moderate” Fox News needs to start slicing into the whole Amercan viewing pie… She struck!!
High upon her new Fox News perch – complete with nostrils flaring – Ms. Kelly condemned and derided Joe the Plumber for this repugnant missive she wanted her audience (and her bosses, no doubt) to believe he had written.
She scolded, poo-poo’d, scowled and grimaced like Keith Olbermann stuck at an NRA convention, depicting the article and it’s author as a prime example of hate-filled racism from “The Right.”
According to the new and different ‘Fair & Balanced’ blonde sensation; Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher – who may I remind you single-handedly outed Barack Obama in 2008 as the wealth-spreading collectivist we all know now – was just a rednecked bigot who gives conservatives and America a bad name.
Only one little hitch, Ms. Kelly: Guess what?
Although true, the missive was posted on the conservative media website “JoeForAmerica.com” – it in fact was penned and credited to a talented writer named; Kevin Jackson – ironically someone who shows up himself on various Fox News programs to give his unique perspective on race and conservatism…
By the way: Shhhhhhh… Kevin Jackson is black –!!!
You can see the post for yourself here: https://joeforamerica.com/2013/10/america-needs-white-republican-president/
Now before you go crying like a little school girl that anyone can make an honest mistake – Fox News and Kelly’s staff were made well aware the article was not the work of Joe Wurzelbacher and that www.JoeForAmerica.com posts dozens of articles daily from writers all over the world (as do most media publications).
– but Megyn had an agenda it seemed: She not only flat-out called Joe a racist, identifying him in no uncertain terms as the author – but never backed-off, never apologized and never acknowledged for what at best would be an amateur hour, “error” – and at worst, the intentional smearing of a well-known figure for rating’s sake.
In other words – Megyn stands by her actions because, darn it, that’s her job and she’s not apologizing‼
Many stories were written about her egregious and probably actionable blunder – if in fact it was one – and Joe himself made a personal appeal to Kelly and Fox News to clear the air and make at the least a retraction – if not an apology and appearance so he could clear his own name.
Nothing. She knew what she did but had no interest in then doing the right thing. Seems Ms. Kelly has learned a tip from the left and it has to do with Saul Alinsky’s rule #5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense.”
The sad part is that the article in question – again, by the talented (and handsome devil) Kevin Jackson – is a well-done satire, loaded with hard, irrefutable facts about how President Obama has been a disaster for black families. It ends with what should be an eye-opening comparison to how (well) black Americans flourished like no other time in history under the presidency of Ronald Reagan.
Therefore – the (obvious) sarcastic title; “America Needs a White Republican President”.
My guess is Megyn Kelly, Superstar, knew damn well it wasn’t Joe’s, because all you’d have to have done is read it. Somebody reads over there at Fox News besides Hannity and Gretchen, right? Here’s how Minister Mychal Massie put it:
“Ms. Kelly, you sat there on your prime-time news program and with all of your petulant, insult-feigned glory, tried to convince an unsuspecting audience how deplorable Joe the Plumber was for writing such an insulting, insensitive, and racist article. But, as I stated, Joe the Plumber who is white did not write the article; Kevin Jackson who is black wrote the article. Joe simply reposted it.”
Still think it was an innocent mistake? Not on your life – that’s not how opinion, news, entertainment shows or otherwise operate. I’ll let the minister Mychal Massie once again explain as only he can:
“Those unfamiliar with how newsrooms and journalism work might be fooled into believing you made an innocent mistake, but those of us who have worked on editorial boards, written/write for newspapers and who earn our living as writers and pundits are convinced yours was no mistake…
No, Ms. Kelly, you saw an opportunity to further foment racial animus and antipathy, and you seized upon it. I’m betting that you rolled the dice figuring you would be able to ignore any harsh criticism. Well, young lady, your photos (of which the T&A ones are in poor taste for a professional) and blond hair make you no more attractive or honest than Al Sharpton when you knowingly and repeatedly permit and incite racial antipathy for personal gain.”
Wow – harsh, but true my friends and the incident with Trump at the debate was no accident either, don’t kid yourselves kids. But here’s the really bad part: Folks like the Huffington Post and other lefty rags cannot wait to quote a so-called conservative calling Joe the Plumber or any other Republican / Tea Party member / religious conservative, etc. a racist. So of course the dogs piled on, taking Kelly’s lead and running hard and fast with the “story.”
Joe requested – and got – many retractions and outright apologies when a ton of articles were also written in his defense, armed with the actual truth of the matter: The Politichicks (those are girls, just like Megyn‼) wrote a thoughtful piece (https://joeforamerica.com/2013/10/exclusive-wjoe-plumber-wurzelbacher-waiting-apology-megyn-kelly/) which garnered A LOT of support, yet still, nothing forthcoming from the Juggernaut that is THE KELLY FILES.
Even the Daily News got the fact that Joe published the article – not originated it:
The Huff-Post of course couldn’t bring themselves to apologize, but they kinda retracted, using the word “UPDATE”! Yeah, like people are going to understand you’re not just taking another opportunity to smear a conservative – which is a spectator sport over there: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/12/joe-the-plumber-racism_n_4090529.html
I don’t hate Megyn Kelly. But she has no class and that’s a fact. She wants to run with the big dogs, but doesn’t want to get off the porch and then cries; “I’m just doing my job” – when she oughta be confessing she sucks at it.
Does all this sound familiar? By the way if “the Donald” is hanging out waiting for an apology from this phony newsbabe, he’d better pick up a few Snickers bars in between doing whatever billionaires do on a daily basis, because Joe Wurzelbacher is still waiting for his.
Megyn Kelly is a pompous, opportunistic hack who has used her looks, flesh and flirty personality to rise up through the ranks past many more well-qualified broadcasters lacking a modeling portfolio, or the (awesome) cleavage.
Joe didn’t write this article either, baby-doll – I did:
…but everyone knows it’s the truth, trust me.
