On Saturday, Fox News host Jesse Watters interviewed a YouTube prankster masquerading as a member of the left-wing group antifa. The entire interview was cringeworthy, but the most revealing moment came when Watters asked the antifa “representative” if he considered a horse to be a racist Trump supporter.
“What about when an antifa member stabbed a police horse in the neck with a knife,” Watters asked. “Was the horse a racist Trump supporter?”
“Yes,” the troll instantly replied without skipping a beat. “You see, the horse is a tool of the police, and the police under the Drumpf administration have been increasingly intolerant, militarized, racist, and xenophobic.”
Hilariously, the pale white troll went on to identify with “unarmed black men and women” as “our fellow POCs.”
Watters introduced the troll as “Kevin,” a member of the Boston branch of antifa. He took credit for an anonymous open letter in which he allegedly wrote, “It is time for liberals and progressives to lose their illusions about the anarchist movement and our tactics because, quite frankly, you have no one else willing to fight for you.”
Watters confronted “Kevin” on this call for violence, but the troll merely argued that the violence would be self-defense from “racists and xenophobes” who “attack” him and his group at peaceful protests. He even argued that “right-wing infiltrators” were the real culprits behind violence done in the name of antifa.
“Kevin” is actually a YouTube star, with 27,000 followers. His profile is BG Kumbi, and he proudly posted the video of his “Fox News debut.” Adding insult to injury, he put it in the “comedy” category.
Mike Cernovich called Fox out on this misstep:
A mere Google search for “Boston antifa” would have revealed the falseness of Kumbi’s account. What were the Fox producers thinking?
