Kirsten Powers plays the race card defending thug shooters
Kirsten Powers, an airhead Fox News liberal did what progressive liberals do best. She tried to play the race card to defend the three thugs who killed Chris Lane. Most of Kirsten Powers whinefest on O’Reilly was about the ‘gun culture’ in this country. But like she did with Megyn Kelly years ago while they were discussing the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case, Powers tried to race bait O’Reilly. Kate Obenshain the other panelist was also offended by Kirsten Powers ridiculous attempt to race bait and blame the gun culture. Remember, in a progressive liberal’s mind like airhead Kirsten Powers, it’s never the fault of the individual. It’s always the ‘culture’ or ‘racists’ in America.

Kirsten Powers, like Juan Williams and Jake Tapper always seem to get the benefit of the doubt from conservatives. I’ll never understand why.
When O’Reilly suggested that Obama doesn’t believe we have a serious problem with violence in this country, Powers shot back, “On what planet does the president not believe we have a problem, Bill?” She said that like the president, she believes “our gun culture is what is behind this. Trust me if those kids didn’t have a gun, that guy would be alive.”
O’Reilly said it was time for Powers to “accept” the “historical situation” in the country that has led to “100 million guns on the street of America.” He added, “When the country was settled, everybody had a gun.”
When he returned to the “corruption of certain groups,” Powers appeared to call him out on his racial implications. “What do you mean certain groups?” she asked. “There are plenty of white people who use guns to go in and kill people, like children in elementary schools in fact when i think of it it. Suddenly it’s just black people who have a problem with guns?”
