Fox Guest: Darth Vader is evil and black because the bible tells me so

The Force is not strong in this one.

Fox News hosts and contributors are almost always up for some good old fashion racial dog whistles and actress Janine Turner‘s recent appearance on Fox Business, was no different.

While discussing what MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said regarding the Star Wars villain Darth Vader, Turner invoked the Religious Right’s favorite theme to make her point: The Bible. Turner scolded Harris-Perry, insisting that “political correctness is going to be responsible for killing more Americans.”

Okay, whatever…but, moving on.

Turner continued:

“Regarding Darth Vader, please! The Bible talks darkness and light. This is about evil and good. Darkness and light.”

“This doesn’t have anything to do with anything else, this goes back to biblical times It’s been discussed in the Bible, Jesus talks about it. It’s about darkness and light, evil and good.”

She also said that even talking about racism in the context of something like Star Wars is problematic due to its “ruining our country and putting us in this clear and present danger.”

Turner then invoked the Constitution that allows “states to take this back into their own hands,” in Article I, Section 10, Clause 3.

She ended her ridiculous diatribe with this ominous warning:

“We’re in clear and present danger, we’re beyond imminent. So the states can legally and constitutionally come together to defend the American people.”

And this ladies and gentlemen, is why we should not allow stupid people to talk on TV.

    golly! What will the self-appointed saviors of modern times, the BLACK hat hackers of anonymous, do about this?

    I’m waiting for folks in the southern states to take umbrage at the phrase “that’s when things went south” to mean went badly or fell apart…

    Sensitive much?

    Right and wrong, black and white. These poor people have digital brains – 0 and 1 – except they don’t compute.
