Mike the Mad Biologist

Granted, picking on Fox News is like taunting the slow kid–it’s cheap and makes you feel bad about yourself. On the other hand, this, reported by Alex Koppelman, just cries out for comment:

Kilmeade and two colleagues were discussing a study that, based on research done in Finland and Sweden, showed people who stay married are less likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s. Kilmeade questioned the results, though, saying, “We are — we keep marrying other species and other ethnics and other …”

At this point, his co-host tried to — in that jokey morning show way — tell Kilmeade he needed to shut up, and quick, for his own sake. But he didn’t get the message, adding, “See, the problem is the Swedes have pure genes. Because they marry other Swedes …. Finns marry other Finns, so they have a pure society.”

Maybe Kilmeade just needs some….lebensraum?

Pile on in the comments.

    wow…just wow.
    He actually, somehow, thinks that each enthicity is a different species?!

    How so some people get through life without at least realizing that some things are not socially acceptable? Even if they don’t realize why they are unacceptable — it would keep them from saying crap like this.

    Seems someone doesn’t have a clue as to what the term ‘species’ means.

    If you actually married another species I can’t see how he can object using the ridiculous ‘racial purity’ claim he seems to be pushing. Marry a cow, or any other species, by definition, and you may suffer a certain amount of ridicule taking your bride for a walk but your not likely to produce offspring and damage your, or the cow’s, lineage.

    Amusing that since the liberals are trying to destroy marriage, he holds up the Swedish and Finnish gene pools as shining examples…

    I somewhat disagree with the need to comment: people like that should be left talking to our backs, in cold silence. They do not deserve the legitimacy of argument or even insults, oh no, they should be treated like Ed Begley in 12 Angry Men – with hostile shunning.

    With the media, what’s the difference between hostile shunning and not paying attention? How would hostile shunning look different from general indifference to what has been said?

    Well since (according to Ray Comfort) males and females had to evolve separately if evolution is true, then all marriages between a man and a woman are… between species.

    It’s a miracle!
