A little trouble in paradise, perhaps (and no, I do not mean the Hulk Hogan-syndicated program. That was Thunder in Paradise and it was awesome).
Fox News personalities Megyn Kelly, Lou Dobbs and Erick Erickson got into it this morning on the air when Kelly confronted the two men over remarks they made about women in the workplace and gender equality.
On Lou Dobbs Tonight on Fox Business Network this Wednesday, the two men discussed a Pew Study that said women were the sole breadwinners in households with children in four out of 10 households.
"We’re watching society dissolve around us,” said Dobbs.
“When you look at biology, look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant one," added Erickson.
Kelly had a bit of a problem with that line of argument.
“What makes you dominant and me submissive, and who died and made you scientist in chief?” she asked the two men.
Several minutes of argument followed, as Kelly asked where their information came from and taught them two that “in the 50s and 60s, there were huge, huge numbers of people who believed that the children of interracial marriages were inferior, were biologically inferior, and that is why it was illegal for some black and whites to marry in this country.”
“They said it was science, and it was fact,” she added. “If you were the child of a black father and a white mother or vice versa, you were inferior and you were not set up for success. Tell that to Barack Obama.”
Plus one for Ms. Kelly.
