It is, of course, a rhetorical question - of course #BlackLivesMatter is a hate group - and Miss Hasselbeck has a robust pair of ovaries to pose that rhetorical question on the air, no less. High fives all around. Three huzzahs. Well done, Liz.
But, of course, she's white, so she had no right to do so, First Amendment or no First Amendment, and her life is now forfeit:
Elisabeth Hasselbeck, cohost of Fox & Friends, received backlash after asking on Monday's show why the Black Lives Matter movement is not classified as a hate group.
Hasselbeck was speaking with Kevin Jackson, a conservative African-American commentator and author of The BIG Black Lie, about a controversial anti-police chant offered by Black Lives Matter protesters at a recent rally in Minnesota: "Pigs in a blanket/ Fry them like bacon!"
Hasselbeck noted that the chant came just days after Houston Deputy Darren Goforth was shot in the back while pumping gas.
"Kevin, why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified yet as a hate group?" asked Hasselbeck. "I mean, how much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?"
And then came the usual social media hatestorm, led this time by Rosie O'Donnell, fresh from menstruating in pro-lifers' faces (and probably in their mouths as well).
Mr. Jackson went to the trouble of supplying the answer we already know:
"Well they should do it, but unfortunately it's being financed by the leftists . . . Ironically it's people that have nothing, really no concern at all about black lives," Jackson replied.
But boy howdy, they sure do hate white people, though. Must be why I refer to them as the Black Klan.
I hope Miss Hasselbeck can afford a private security detail. At all times. Seriously. Because she's going to be looking over her shoulder from now on.
Just ask Darrin Wilson.
UPDATE: Megyn Kelly ups the ante:
Fortunately for her, she's already got a private security detail. Which will still be overwhelmed by the NBP whenever Fowler gives the secret code word. Helps explain why he's so smug in this clip.
