Megyn Kelly Is A Small Slender Liar!!! *

Megyn Kelly of The Kelly File is simply lying. Last night she went on the air to say she was only joking the other night when she insisted -- INSISTED!!! -- that both Santa Claus and Jesus H. Christ ** are real and both are White dudes:
Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change. I mean, Jesus was a white man, too. He was a historical figure and that’s verifiable fact, as is Santa - I just want the kids watching to know that.
If no-longer preggy Leggy Meggy were really joking, there would have been some indication of it, no matter how slight. A sly grin perhaps. An upturned eyebrow denoting sarcasm. Some telegraphing to her audience that this was a light-hearted segment, not to be taken too seriously. But take a look at the original clip again. She's as serious as a Dick Cheney hearty attack. She's not joking. She's demonstrating anger and frustration. Even Loofah Lad's lame Body Language reader would be able to catch it. Watch for yourself and decide whether she's joking:


In defending her highly attuned sense of humour -- and trashing the millions of people who simply took her remarks wrong -- Leggy Meggy turned over the race card and played the victim:
Cue the firestorm of controversy over my declaring Santa’s skin color. Many questioning whether I understand that Santa is a mythical figure. Others suggesting I am a racist who is outraged at the idea of a black Santa.

This would be funny if it were not so telling about our society, in particular the kneejerk instinct by so many to race bait and to assume the worst in people. Especially people employed by the very powerful Fox News Channel.
Yeah, because everyone who saw the segment with their own lying eyes were simply mistaken, and that includes most of the internet. Both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report took shots at Kelly on the same night over her highly elevated sense of Crazy White Privilege and Entitlement. But, everybody is wrong. Nothing to see here. Move along.

However, to compound her extreme asshattery, Kelly practically ignores the valid criticism that she is 100% wrong to say Jesus was White, which is far more offensive than a casual statement declaring fictional Santa is a real White guy. This is all she said about that:
By the way, I also said Jesus is white. As I’ve learned in the past two days, that is far from settled.
Far from settled?!?! Not, "I said something bone-headed?"

Not once did Megyn Kelly take any ownership of any of the words that tumbled out of her own mouth. She hid behind the fig leaf of every scoundrel who has ever gotten a disapproving response to a racist joke: "HEY! I was just joking. Don't you have a sense of humour?"

In Megyn Kelly's White World of Privilege™ everyone else is at fault for misinterpreting her words, despite the fact that she's paid good money to put across her thoughts in a cogent manner. If the entire internet got it wrong, maybe it was the messenger, Kelly. Maybe it was the message, too.

However, yannow who else didn't think she was joking? Stormfront, described as "the first major hate site on the internet," knew exactly what Megyn Kelly was saying and rushed to her defense.



* With apologies to Senator Al Franken

** For the record: I accept Jesus was an historic figure, just not a White one. Whether Santa is real: As I've learned in the past two days from talking to children, that is far from settled.
