This Friday, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly grilled conservative pundit and RedState founder Erick Erickson over his recent controversial comments saying it’s “natural” for women play a subservient role in the home.
Erickson recently tried to clarify his comments in a blog post on RedState, but only made matters for himself worse with what many saw as a doubling down on his comments.
Attacking Erickson’s RedState piece, Kelly asked, “What makes you dominant and me submissive and who makes you scientist in chief?” Kelly went to compare Erickson to the people who used debunked studies to argue against interracial marriage in the 50s and 60s, asking, “Why should we take your word for it — Erick Erickson’s science?”
“In this country in the ’50s and ’60s there were huge numbers of people that believed that the children of interracial marriages were biologically inferior and that is why it was illegal for blacks and whites to marry in some states in the country up until 1967,” Kelly said towards the end of the segment. “And they said it was science and fact if you were the child of a black father and white mother or vice versa you were inferior and not set up for success. Tell that to Barack Obama.”
