What do Americans Really Think About NBC Firing Megyn Kelly? New Poll has the Answer.

Wow. Looks like they might have made the wrong call.

Remember last week when NBC host Megyn Kelly was booted from the network after making some controversial remarks about blackface as part of a person’s Halloween costume? Well, it seems that not everyone is on the same page with NBC’s decision to fire Kelly.

A new poll is reporting that 45 percent of folks surveyed about the action NBC took against Kelly believe it was too harsh.

The poll, which was conducted by The Hollywood Reporter and Morning Consult, was taken several days after NBC host Megyn Kelly made remarks about blackface and Halloween.

Of the 2,201 adult Americans polled in the survey, 45 percent believed that NBC’s decision to cancel the show was “too harsh of a consequence.” Twenty-six percent of those polled said that canceling the show was “the appropriate consequence for her comments.”

The poll noted that 6 percent of respondents said that Kelly’s remarks improved their opinion of her, while 48 percent said that her remarks made “no difference either way.”

The poll also noted that 29 percent of respondents had a “somewhat less favorable” or “much less favorable” view of the network after their decision to cancel the show.

NBC’s action to fire Kelly came even after she issues a public apology for the comments. It was apparently too little, too late.

“You may have heard that yesterday we had a discussion here about political correctness and Halloween costumes. And that conversation turned to whether it is ever OK for a person of one race to dress up as another, a black person making their face whiter or a white person making theirs darker, to make a costume complete,” Kelly explained in a portion of her apology. “I defended the idea, saying as long as it was respectful and part of a Halloween costume it seemed OK. Well, I was wrong and I am sorry.”

Many networks have been falling prey to knee-jerk reactions involving the comments of their staff and folks who work for them. Just look at what happened to Roseanne Barr. Freedom of speech and tolerance for folks who make mistakes is at an all time low. Let’s hope that changes.

Alyssa Milano Says If You Claim To Be Pro-Life And Support The Death Penalty, You Need To Zip It

This woman is woefully ignorant.

There are a lot of annoying, ignorant leftists in Hollywood who constantly weigh in on political matters that they seem to either be woefully uninformed about or are just plain evil in their thinking. What actress Alyssa Milano said about pro-lifers who support the death penalty falls into both categories and only serves to make those of us who actually know what we’re talking about long for the days when the social media mute button comes to the real world. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: On Thursday night, actress and abortion champion Alyssa Milano, responding to the announcement that Attorney General William Barr had directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons to clear the way for the federal government to execute five inmates who are all convicted child murderers, snapped at one pro-life advocate, “You’ve lost the right to pull your, ‘pro-life’ narrative-talking-point-bullshit with me.” Milano’s remark followed Sen. Kamala Harris cavalierly disregarding the Second Amendment on Thursday, tweeting, “As president, I will give Congress 100 days to get their act together and pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they don’t, I will take executive action. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action.” As president, I will give Congress 100 days to get their act together and pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they don’t, I will take executive action. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action. — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) July 26, 2019 Milano responded, “No more complacency. This is what Obama should have done after Sandy Hook when 20 children and 6 adults were murdered violently. Thank you, @KamalaHarris. Thank you.” No more complacency. This is what Obama should have done after Sandy Hook when 20 children and 6 adults were murdered violently. Thank you, @KamalaHarris.

Good News! Miley Cyrus Promises Not To Procreate Until Climate Change Is Solved

This woman’s brain is a bag of cats.

One of the main problems with modern society is that all the stupid people in our culture continue to breed and then indoctrinate their children with their horrific, morally bankrupt worldview. Fortunately for all of us, actress and pop star Miley Cyrus has decided to forego procreating until someone finally steps up to the plate and does something to bring the crisis of climate change to an end. This is probably her best contribution to society at this point. via TheBlaze: In a recent interview with Elle, the former “Hannah Montana” actress said that she wants to wait to have children until said children could “live on an earth with fish in the water.” In addition to climate change and parenting, she also touched upon feminism and marriage. “When [Mother Earth] is angry, don’t f*** with her,” Cyrus warned. “That’s the way I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry.” “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women,” she insisted. “We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece of s**t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.” “We don’t want to reproduce because we know that the earth can’t handle it,” she added. Cyrus later went on to detail her marriage with Hemsworth. “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married,” she reasoned. “But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in…
