Fox Host Super Mad That Military Is Trying To Ban White Supremacy

Fox News host Rachel Campos-Duffy on Sunday said that it was inappropriate for the U.S. military to issue a "stand down" order on white supremacy.

Fox News host Rachel Campos-Duffy on Sunday said that it was inappropriate for the U.S. military to issue a "stand down" order on white supremacy.

While appearing on Fox & Friends, Campos-Duffy complained that she found former President George W. Bush's speech on the 20th anniversary of Sept. 11 to be "jarring" because he mentioned domestic terrorism.

She argued that Bush's speech "takes the focus off of who we need to be focused on."

"And I also think that motivations matter," she explained. "The Islamic terrorists want to kill Americans. They hate Western civilization. They hate America. They have lots of reason for that."

"Regardless of what you think about what happened on Jan. 6, the people there went in with the flags," the Fox News host continued. "They were not America haters. They were people who were angry and expressing their anger in a very bad way about an election result. Those are not equivalent things."

Co-host Pete Hegseth griped that people who refuse to take the Covid-19 vaccine have also been compared to terrorists.

"Well, they had a stand down, right, on white supremacy in the military," Campos-Duffy chimed in. "And I guess I'm just not seeing that that's worthy of a stand down."

"That's your non-white rage speaking," Hegseth quipped. "I share your frustration."
