"You know, I've given her her due. Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn't mean it has to change," [Megyn]Kelly said. "Jesus was a white man, too. It's like we have, he's a historical figure that's a verifiable fact, as is Santa, I just want kids to know that. How do you revise it in the middle of the legacy in the story and change Santa from white to black?"
Lord have mercy! And Megyn is the "straight" news reporter over at FOX.
Anyway, we knew Santa wasn't black, because all of their [Fox] viewers would have shot his big behind the moment he started crawling down the chimney. Besides, the whole "I saw mama kissing Santa Claus" thing... Not a good look. But Jesus? Come on now, Megyn. Dude was definitely not white. He had a posse for crying out loud.
From what I hear the J man was pretty cool. He used to walk around on earth dropping pearls of wisdom and being the life of every party by turning water into wine and all. Not to mention feeding a whole bunch of people with just a loaf of bread and some fish.
Can you imagine having a friend like that? "Yo dudes, you hungry? Yea, but we only have enough for a two piece order of Popeye's. No problem, I will just turn that bad boy into a family pack."
And now Megyn Kelly and the folks over at Fox want to claim the J man as their own. Unbelievable! The fat guy in the red suit isn't enough? Personally, I think the J man must have looked more like Bunny Wailer than Brad Pitt, but maybe that's my own cultural and racial bias kicking in.
People like Hadas Gold are trying to get all historical and accurate on Megyn. But it all boils down to Megyn's own prejudices and belief system. A belief system that was ingrained into her at an early age. In truth, Megyn is no different than most other folks in the majority population who believe that Jesus and Santa were created for them and no one else. By making this declaration on Fox, she was just preaching to the faithful.
"I'm a straight news anchor, I'm not one of the opinion hosts.."
So there you have it. What Megyn just declared to the world is not her opinion; it was a fact.
There are a lot of biblical scholars who would disagree with her facts. But hey, Megyn works for Fox news.
