Newsmax host accuses media of ‘demonizing’ white women, driving racial tensions

Newsmax host Greg Kelly blasted mainstream media for fueling a backlash on white women and contributing to a greater racial divide in our nation.

On Wednesday’s “Greg Kelly Reports,” the host contended that white women have been “demonized” for years, as he discussed the case of Eliza Fletcher, a white woman from Memphis, Tennessee, who was abducted while jogging, and allegedly murdered by a black man.

“We have seen this all too often,” Kelly said. “However, the mainstream media, they want to put the brakes on covering stories like this because of well, the race of the victim.”

Showing a montage of news clips on “missing white women syndrome,” (mainstream media terminology), Kelly demonstrated the prevailing emphatic view that there is disproportionate media coverage of stories on the disappearance of white women, while crimes against women of color purportedly go largely unreported.

“Why not the same media attention when people of color go missing?” Joy Reid asked in one clip. “Well, the answer actually has a name – missing white women syndrome.”

The Newsmax host dismissed this argument after clips aired of talking heads on CNN, MSNBC, and other left-leaning outlets fanning the claims about the “syndrome.”

“They have no respect – it seems – for missing white women, or white women, period,” Kelly said before another montage from mainstream pundits touting the view that white women are out of touch with women of color and that they should mind their own business.

“See how this is encouraged?  It’s pretty disgusting,” Kelly reacted.

It is also notable that widespread coverage of the Fletcher story avoided describing the race of the assailant. This was viewed by some as another instance of facts getting in the way of the media’s narrative.

Fox News, however, did do a report on the violent history of the murder suspect, something that seemed to be avoided in the mainstream, so as not to vilify people of color.

The 38-year-old suspect in the Memphis kidnapping and murder of Fletcher “was only 16 when he began a 20-year prison term for kidnapping another victim at gunpoint,” Fox News reported. He also reportedly “committed a juvenile delinquent act of rape against an unnamed suspect when he was 14.”

“So this is a very toxic stew right now in America for White women,” Kelly continued. “I really believe that.”

After airing video clips of stories where white women were being beaten by black assailants, Kelly made the point that, actually, news of this kind is not getting fair coverage, which is, itself, creating a bigger problem.

“This is pretty crazy stuff,” Kelly said “And you saw those media clips from earlier. They’re fueling it. They’re definitely fueling it. We have major, major problems in America.”
