FOX host Brian Kilmeade tries to blame Megan Markle for the death of Prince Philip

On Friday morning, the world was greeted with the news that 99-year-old Prince Philip had passed away. Normally, the news that an incredibly old man had moved on would be not particularly newsworthy beyond an acknowledgment of the event, but the content-starved jackals at FOX News asked themselves “how can we turn this into a culture war grenade?”

The answer — as it always is — turned out to be “blame the Black woman.”

Usually a ferocious champion of the psychotic brand of hypernationalism that the political right-wing uses to obfuscate their contempt and disgust for the American people and American society, FOX News has been shameless in their simping worship of the British royal family in the wake of Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle’s controversial Oprah interview. Markle claimed that she had been mistreated by the royal family due to the color of her skin and had to put up with insulting questions about the possible skin color of her and Prince Harry’s babies.

Religiously committed to downplaying, excusing, or otherwise whitewashing racism in all its forms, FOX hosts have suddenly become ardent royalists when given the opportunity to trash a woman of color for speaking out about the treatment she received at the hands of the inbred revenants that sit atop the British throne — and the death of Prince Philip gave them the chance to once again stir the pot of racial strife.

On FOX today, host Brian Kilmeade somehow found a roundabout way to blame Markle for the death of Philip, noting that he was “enraged” after the Oprah interview. “Here he is trying to recover [from an illness], and then he gets hit with that!”

He doubled down on the ridiculous assertion by citing the monocle-and-cigar class’s favorite blowhard, Piers Morgan: “One thing that Piers Morgan said on his morning show, which he famously walked off of is like, really? Your grandfather is in the hospital, you know he’s not doing well, is it really the time you have to put out this interview? and evidently, it definitely added to his stress…”

It is patently absurd to try to blame the death of a 99-year-old man who has been battling various health conditions for years on his granddaughter-in-law’s interview with a TV host about the racism in their family; racism that Prince Philip would be well aware of, since he was an infamous racist himself.

It just goes to show that FOX News exists for one thing only — protecting racism and racists while shunting all the blame onto the victims of racism themselves.
