Fox & Friends Host Says White People Are 'Being Marginalized'
A recent episode of "Fox & Friends" took a wild turn when host Brian Kilmeade argued that activists are "trying to take down white culture" while discussing the teaching of critical race theory in schools. "They're not acknowledging any improvement in our culture, the gains made, how we are more equal, even despite our faults, than any other country," Kilmeade said in a clip captured by Raw Story. "The other thing is they are not only trying to raise up minorities and make sure the playing field is even, they're trying to take down the white culture." He then went on to say that the present generation of white Americans are "being marginalized on a daily basis based on our gender, our sexuality, and the color of our skin."
Ilhan Omar Clarifies Comments Following Backlash
Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar made waves Monday after sharing a video on Twitter in which she called for accountability and justice for all crimes against humanity— including war crimes. "We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity," Omar tweeted. "We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban." Republicans and some Democrats say that Omar compared the U.S. and Israel to terrorist groups and called for clarification, to which Omar later responded in a statement, writing, “I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.” Further, she explained that her comments referenced current International Criminal Court investigations were "not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel."
