During a segment on the Black Lives Matter movement on Monday morning, “Fox and Friends” host Elisabeth Hasselbeck suggested that the organization be labeled a hate group.

Fox brought on conservative African-American writer Kevin Jackson to discuss the Saturday Black Lives Matter protest at the Minnesota State Fair and the Friday shooting of a Texas sheriff’s deputy.

“Kevin, why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified yet as a hate group?” Hasselbeck asked Jackson during the segment. “How much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?”

“Well they should do it, but unfortunately it’s being financed by the leftists,” Jackson said in response. “Ironically it’s people that have nothing, really no concern at all about black lives.”

  1. Two better questions:

    1. Why hasn’t the Republican Party been labeled a hate group?
    2. Why hasn’t Fox “News” Corp. been labeled a hate group?
  2. Either has more hate than everyone else put together.

  3. That would stir up the ‘free speech’ advocates…

    That would likely give Wolf Blitzer a sad face. (s)

  4. Look at the grim faces of fear Hasselbeck and the other guy are wearing.

    If it weren’t for fear they’d have happier lives.

  5. OK Dumb-Fucks, let me explain: A “Hate Group” is NOT a group that YOU HATE. It is a group that espouses HATRED OF OTHERS.

    Oh. Your. God. you people are stupid.
