Fox & Friends host Elizabeth Hasselbeck asked a guest why the #BlackLivesMatter protest movement has not yet been classified as a hate group.
Fair enough, right?
Fox invited our pal Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere on the show as well (SSSHHHHHH – he’s black!!) to discuss the group of #BlackLivesMatter protesters who disrupted the Minnesota state fair while chanting “Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” and the unprovoked murder of Texas deputyDarren Goforth at the hands of a black man.
Jackson called the movement “nonsense” and warned that it would backfire.
“Kevin, why has the #BlackLivesMatter movement not been classified yet as a hate group?” Hasselbeck asked. “I mean, how much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?”
“Well they should do it, but unfortunately it’s being financed by the leftists,” he responded. “Ironically it’s people who have nothing, really no concern at all about black lives. People like George Soros…”
While Hasselbeck may have only meant to ask a simple question, by doing so on television she essentially labelled the movement as a hate group herself, prompting an abundance of backlash and controversy.
The usual suspects on social media went nutty on her – for simply asking the question – right out of the Alinsky playbook:
Can we take away freedom of speech specifically only from Elisabeth Hasselbeck?
And here’s the best one:
Can someone please tell @ehasselbeck that you can’t label a movement a hate group. Geez.
Really? The KKK movement wasn’t a hate group?
Well, there’s your Dems for ya!
