Fox’s Brian Kilmeade Rages at Seattle: ‘Giving Up a Major Northwest City to a Bunch of Anarchists’
Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade continued his attacks on protesters in Seattle who have created a police-free zone in the Capitol. The Fox & Friends host suggested the situation was basically anarchy and condemned the protesters as workshy troublemakers.
“But the symbolism of giving up a major northwest city to a bunch of anarchists and a bunch of, you know, dead-enders for lack of a better term, is horrendous for law enforcement around the country,” Kilmeade said.
“You want law enforcement reform? They’re working on it in Washington. You want law enforcement reform? It’s happening local and making announcements. Taking over a city. Giving up seven blocks and having the cops say it was not my decision to give up a precinct.”
“This is the second major precinct that was given up. In Minneapolis they evacuated rather than defend. Now in Seattle, we saw the 77th in Brooklyn they went right for the precinct. They’re going for the heart of law and order in major cities. And please tell me how we benefit from this.”
Later in the segment, Kilmeade criticized the protesters for calling to defund the police and invoked Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“They want to abolish the police. This is not even a semblance of — This is not Martin Luther King in the 1960s for racial justice. for racial justice,” he said.
“This is called I don’t want a job, I don’t want responsibility. I don’t want to fit in society. And I want to make a mockery of law enforcement in America.”
