Black Liberal Actor Calls Fox News “Racist” … Then Megyn Kelly Shuts Him Down HARD

Conservative Tribune

Fox News host Megyn Kelly doesn’t let people get away with wiggling away from the truth, and she showed a recent guest on her show that she wouldn’t be pushed around by race-baiting rhetoric.

Actor D.L. Hughley appeared on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” on Wednesday to discuss recent police-involving shootings and race relations in the United States. But the liberal actor wasted no time jumping straight to accusations of racism.

If Hughley thought he could get away with calling Fox News “racist” on Kelly’s show, he was mistaken. Kelly shut down his racist argument over and over again before the segment ended on a heated note.

Hughley’s segment followed former LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman, who pointed out the inconsistencies in the accounts surrounding the police-involved shooting death of Philando Castile in Minnesota.

Fuhrman and Kelly discussed how Castile’s girlfriend had given inconsistent stories about what happened and how people in some communities automatically assumed that Castile was shot because he was a black man.

Hughley disagreed with Fuhrman, and though Kelly tried to keep the conversation steered toward discussing the facts of the Minnesota shooting, the actor wasn’t interested in talking about the facts.

His position was that cops are unfairly given a “presumption of innocence,” that they don’t deserve and that other people don’t receive — something Kelly pointed out was untrue because the law gives everyone that same presumption.

Kelly also noted that, when it comes to police-involved shootings of black people, many people have jumped to conclusions about race when, in fact, investigations haven’t proven that the implicated cops were motivated by anything other than protecting themselves and the communities they serve.

For example, Kelly pointed to the fabricated “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative that came out of Ferguson, Missouri, when Michael Brown was killed by Officer Darren Wilson — a mantra that is still used by Black Lives Matter protestors today, despite its falsity.

Even the liberal-led Justice Department found that Brown was the aggressor in the situation and exonerated Wilson, the news anchor argued, to which Hughley responded by saying, “Wow.”

“Don’t ‘wow’ me,” Kelly said. “That’s what they found.”

“Don’t tell me not to ‘wow’ you,” Hughley shot back. “I can say wow if I want to.”

Hughley’s sole argument about the situation was that the DOJ found evidence of “systemic racism” within the Ferguson police department, and therefore, he believed he could accurately assume that the officer was motivated by race.

Never mind the fact that even Eric Holder found evidence that Brown had tried to grab Wilson’s gun to shoot him, and Wilson responded appropriately by firing.

Kelly warned the actor not to “dodge,” which led Hughley to accuse Fox News of being racist.

“It is not uncommon for you all to see one thing,” he said. “The only place racism doesn’t exist is Fox News and the police department.”

Kelly called his comments “insulting,” but Hughley responded that he “didn’t care.”

Many news anchors would have simply thrown the ridiculous actor out of the studio for his blatant disregard for the truth and offensive insults. Kelly, however, took the opportunity to explain to Hughley that his rush to judgment and immediate accusations of racism — without any evidence — “shuts down dialogue.”

Kelly was entirely correct, and her patience while arguing with this liberal race-baiter was commendable.
