Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who launched a new show on SiriusXM this Tuesday, made it clear during a pre-show interview that morning that she has zero sympathy for “woke” cultists like now-fired former ESPN reporter Rachel Nichols who wind up being eaten by the “woke” mob.

Just prior to the launch of her new show at noon on SiriusXM’s “Triumph” channel, Kelly spoke with Clay Travis’ OutKick in a wide-ranging interview on several topics, including her decision to partner with SiriusXM, her perceptions of current American culture and, more specifically, her thoughts about “woke” madness.

In speaking about the latter subject, she warned that “there’s no appeasing the ‘woke.'”

“There’s no amount of ‘woke’ that’s acceptable to the ‘woke.’ They will even turn on and eat their own in a New York minute. Just ask Chrissy Teigen. It doesn’t matter how many chips you deposit in the ‘Woke Bank.’ They will come for you, they will cut you,” she said.

Of course, this is an obvious, established fact — one backed by example after example after example — which is why Kelly has “no sympathy for these people who play along then get eaten by the woke.”

People like Nichols, who’d been a hardcore “woke” activist loyal to what sports journalist and critic Jason Whitlock has dubbed the “BLM-LBTQ+ alphabet mafia.”

But after years of appeasing the “woke,” Nichols got served a dose of “woke” justice herself when a recording of a private conversation she’d had was released to the public.

In the recording, she could be heard complaining about a less qualified colleague taking her spot covering the 2020 NBC Finals. No big deal, except that the colleague was black, and “woke” rule 101 is that you never say anything negative about blacks.

“That is why I have no sympathy for these people who play along then get eaten by the woke, like when Rachel Nichols took a hit. Too bad,” Kelly said.

“You have been out here for how long about how bad this country and certain industries are? Well, guess what? The monster came back to get you. I don’t feel sorry for you because you were fighting the wrong battle,” she added.

In fairness to Nichols, she “is in no way the worst offender,” Kelly continued.

“[CNN host] Don Lemon is out there every night telling everybody what bigots they are. Meanwhile, this is a man who has been credibly accused of shoving his hands down the pants, fondling the genitals, and rubbing his hands all over a stranger in a bar,” she said.

“He denies it, but he’s been accused and there was an independent eye witness who said he saw Lemon do it. Who is Don Lemon to lecture us on anything?” she added.

And then there’s CNN host Chris Cuomo, who helped his brother, disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, smear his sexual harassment accusers.

“These are our moral arbiters who are casting judgment on regular American citizens who, for the most part, are powerless to fight back,” Kelly noted.

Meanwhile, those with power are, for the most part, joining in the casting of judgment, but not necessarily because they agree with the “woke” madness, but more-so because they too are afraid of becoming victims of the “woke” mob.

“The only reason people are doing [this] is because they’re weak. They don’t have the stones to stand up against it. And I think then they deserve what they get. I believe in the law of natural consequences,” she said.

She even has a word for this: “corporate Darwinism.”

“If that’s the kind of company you want to run — I’m speaking to you, Nike — let’s see how it goes. I’ll be interested in that thought experiment,” she said.

Nike is one of the “wokest” of the “woke” with its embrace of Black Lives Matter and radicalized, anti-American “woke” activist Colin Kaepernick.

This is the precise reason Kelly signed up with SiriusXM — because they have a reputation for being one of those rare companies willing to stand up to the madness.

“I wanted a company that wasn’t going to fold if and when the cancel culture mobsters come for me. Sirius has a good history in that department,” she explained.

“I wanted someone who is as close to my old bosses, Rupert and Lachlan, in terms of their unwillingness to be cowed by the mob, as possible,” she added.

Indeed, SiriusXM is home to Howard Stern, one of the most non-PC shock jocks in American history. Though on the other hand, SirusXM is not home to Joe Rogan, an extremely popular anti-“woke,” anti-PC and even anti-Fauci radio show host who’s on track to outdo even Stern.
