Kilmeade and two colleagues were discussing a study that, based on research done in Finland and Sweden, showed people who stay married are less likely to suffer from Alzheimer's. Kilmeade questioned the results, though, saying, "We are -- we keep marrying other species and other ethnics and other ..."
At this point, his co-host tried to -- in that jokey morning show way -- tell Kilmeade he needed to shut up, and quick, for his own sake. But he didn't get the message, adding, "See, the problem is the Swedes have pure genes. Because they marry other Swedes .... Finns marry other Finns, so they have a pure society."
You know, "species" may very well have been a slip of the tongue. But when Kilmeade went on about "pure societies", he showed where he was really coming from. Sieg fuckin' Heil, Brian.
It's like the GOP's propaganda arm isn't not even trying to disguise the racism any more. Which is probably a good thing, in the long run. At least we know what they are.
As for me, I recall the inspiring words of another winger: John Winger as played by Bill Murray in "Stripes":
We're all very different people. We're not Watusi. We're not Spartans. We're Americans, with a capital 'A', huh? You know what that means? Do ya? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts! Here's proof: his nose is cold! But there's no animal that's more faithful, that's more loyal, more loveable than the mutt."
Thanks to Hellion Randy Johnson for the heads up.
