On air in a room full of people, and no one batted an eye. I'm not surprised but I'm still allowed to be pissed.
Okay, fine, I am a little surprised, but mostly because people aren't talking about this more. Did everyone already talk about this? Can this be in the news for one second? DO WE EVEN HAVE NEWS ANYMORE? HAMILTON NOLAN?
Fox News anchor and Supreme Court correspondent Shannon Bream: "That's my question about these guys. If we know they were speaking unaccented French and they had ski masks on, do we even know what color they were, what the tone of their skin was? I mean, what if they didn't look like typical bad guys? As we define them when we think about terror groups."
How is there always a new low. How is it. And how have we as a society gotten to a place where this happen? And her coworkers... So all of them agreed with her?
I watched the segment and it was bucketfulls of grade A bullshit (per normal, totally normal) but when she said that, I won't lie, my mouth dropped open. Just... what? Like if I was in the room with her ... I don't know. I honestly don't know what I would have said. Something very quiet followed by something very loud, most likely.
Here is her Twitter. Please, for the love of all that's holy, don't harass her. Don't be the "bad guys" and "libtards" she thinks want to "get her." I'm sharing this only because I think it's incredibly notable that she has said not one thing—made exactly ZERO @ replies—in response to her statement. Not a one. No conversations. Not even a: "Racial profiling helps cops. RT Hey @ShannonBream that was pretty fucking racist and bold to say on air even for you."
The news isn't that people are racist. The news is that America has now come full circle and the Klan can start having meetings at the Moose lodge again.
