Jon Stewart’s Reaction To Megyn Kelly’s ‘White Santa’ Statement Is All We Need

By the way, has anyone noticed my new avatar ?  It’s a gesture against Megan Kelly’s “statement” about “Santa”…

The Huffington Post

Fox News has certainly made their fair share of problematic gaffes on air, but on Thursday, they marched forward with out-and-out racism when Megyn Kelly clarified to kids that Santa is white, despite what the liberal media has been telling them.


Jon Stewart hit back: “Who are you actually talking to?”

He tried to imagine the kid Kelly was addressing: “Sophisticated enough to be watching a news channel at 10 o’clock at night, yet innocent enough to still believe Santa Claus is real, yet racist enough to be freaked out if he isn’t white.”

Even more troublesome was her statement that the black Slate writer she was addressing need not have concerned herself with such issues: “Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change.” As Stewart pointed out, that’s literally the dictionary definition of oppression.

  1. We’re all screaming with laughter over here in England about Megyn Kelly’s remarks ( about Jesus’ white skin ) which in the first instance were obviously not tongue in cheek as she now lamely says.


  2. LTL, here’s the thing. I grew up in the Bronx and my mom’s favorite place to take me on her days off was 125th street in Harlem. Although I saw pictures of “Santa” on TV and in magazines and accepted that he looked like the images I saw, the Santa at Blumstein’s in Harlem was Black. I actually questioned my mom about that and she told me the man was one of Santa’s “helpers”. (I humored her and said ok.) I enjoyed my trips to the Apollo Theater a lot more than visiting the “fake” Santa. LOL

    My avatar is to express what “Santa” looks like or is imagined to look like in the eye of the beholder. But I honestly think most kids that still believe in the Christmas myth of Santa imagines him to be Caucasian. That’s just a fact of our Western culture.

    I can’t bring myself to watch Fox News outside of clips from various media sources. I read somewhere that she’s an attorney so my thought was that she’s GOT to be smarter than the rest of the on air crew at Fox. That’s the extent of my premise. No facts. Just conjecture…not unlike Fox News. LOL


  3. Yes, K, I did notice your avatar. He looks like one of my uncles who may have let his beard grow. But, as a kid, I never fretted over Santa being White. Every Santa whose lap I sat on always seemed really nice. So I never held it against him and couldn’t care less if he was White as long as he showed up. And as for Jesus, I was always skeptical as to whether anyone really knew what he looked like once I learned there were no photographs. Plus I knew that people from that part of the world were “olive” complexioned. (My grandfather, who was a baptist preacher, taught me that before I even started school, as I recall.) As for Meghan Kelly, unlike you, I always did think she was a White supremacy nutbox – “all that’s good in the world comes from White people.” Have you heard her argue against Obamacare? Rabid.


    1. And its funny, the reason I know my age when I learned about Jesus having an “olive” complexion is that I remember the kitchen where I went to examine some of my Mother’s olives afterwards. I came away thinking Jesus was kinda greenish until my Mother told me otherwise.
