Cohosts Dana Perino and Lawrence Jones had the decency to refrain from much commentary given that they had not seen Obama's town hall. But not blowhard Greg Gutfeld. After weeks of Fox slobbering over (white) armed protesters violating shutdown laws, Gutfeld is now a big fan of law and order. He called the George Floyd protests an “insurrection.”
Worse, Gutfeld lectured that the U.S. has already done everything possible for those Blacks Behaving Badly. He didn’t come right out and say it, but the subtext was, “So stop whining about getting killed by the police!”
Take the Minneapolis Police Department, right? They’ve tried. They’ve tried to increase minority police. They’ve instituted diversity classes, they’ve had comprehensive, documented plans to reform their entire force and yet they have problems attracting officers. That is not systemic racism.
If you were trying to change things and if you look at progress and you see what people are doing – declines in shootings and … just people trying to do better at work and you say, well, you know we still have institutional racism. What that’s saying is nothing we can do can change it, therefore, violence is inevitable.
The fact is, if a young, black, successful, earnest man enters any business looking for a job, Human Resources will be drooling. They will be drooling, right? So the idea that this is still institutional racism and you can’t tell us what to do means that we can’t do anything.
Jesse Watters, who can't understand why anyone thinks Donald Trump is "racially insensitive" was on the same page “what racism?” page as Gutfeld:
The one ostensibly liberal cohost, Juan Williams, never challenged a word, except to say, right before he teased the next segment. “Oh, boy, I hope that people know about police reform. Even President Trump talks about that.”
