Gretchen cries sexist tears of sexist joy, 1989
Gasp! Help! Help! Gretchen Carlson is being repressed!
Female Fox Anchor Walks Off Set After Co-Host’s Sexist Joke | On Fox & Friends Thursday morning, Steve Doocy interviewed members of the U.S. Navy Band about the band’s recent inclusion of women. Reacting to the segment, Brian Kilmeade remarked, “Women are everywhere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control.” Visibly upset, Gretchen Carlson, the only female host, walked off of the set. “You read the headlines. Since men are so great. Take them [women] away,” she said. Kilmeade responded, “All right. Finally.” Then, as she walked further off of the set, Kilmeade jeered, “Leaving an all male crew” and added “she needed a shower.”
Which is, to my mind, an unconscionable and hilarious act of hypocrisy. Ms. Carlson has fashioned an entire career of acting as a mouthpiece for anti-feminism, first as First Runner Up in the Miss Teen USA contest in 1984 (Ghod’s little joke, not mine) and then as 1989 Miss America.
Wikipedia notes that she “continues to work with the Miss America pageant and serves as a national celebrity spokesperson for March of Dimes.” (Even though she hates FDR.)
After exploiting herself as a piece of meat for decades, and having signed with Rupert Murdoch to make happy statements like “Carlson labeled Democratic U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy a “hostile enemy” of the United States, “right here on the home front,” suddenly she’s offended that she’s working in a hotbed of misogyny?
Seriously, Gretchen, when you sold your soul to the devil, you gave up your right to complain that his breath smells like brimstone.
And yet, the clueless and the feminists who only judge people by what lies at the juncture of their legs rather than at the terminus of their necks will defend her.
Such is the state of oppression in FauxNation.
Happy Flag Day.
