“Fox & Friends” hosts declare that the shooting was motivated by religious hatred towards Christians, but not racism.
As we all know Dylann Roof, 21, from Eastover, South Carolina has been accused of killing 9 black people in the church. Officials say that Roof had been sitting at the back of the church one hour before he stood up, made some racist comments and opened fire at people around.
The FBI, Justice Department and the Attorney’s office opened a hate crime investigation.
Despite his obvious hatred against black people, which he expressed regularly before the incident, Fox Host Steve Doocy, on one of the recent shows, commented, “extraordinarily, they called it a hate crime,” he said. “And some look at it as, well, it’s because it was a white guy, apparently, and a black church. But you made a great point just a moment ago about the hostility toward Christians, and it was in a church, so maybe that’s what it was about.”
Co-host, Brian Kilmeade, then also tried to promote this idea, asking a guest, “Is it a church that has white congregants as well as black?”
What surprises many listeners is why Fox News didn’t want to admit it was a racist hate crime when all the facts were right in front of them?
“He made racist jokes, wore patches with flags of racist states and is alleged to have killed 9 people. The motive is mysterious,” wrote Twitter user, @HeerJeet, from Toronto, Canada.
Well, what is obvious for every sane person isn’t like that for Fox News staff. It is probably the most racist American channel, not surprising it is so popular in this country.
There’s no argument about this, racism was the motivation for the shooter’s actions. And it seems racism is the motivation for white Fox News hosts, when they claim that Charleston shooting wasn’t a hate crime.
