Fox News pundit Todd Starnes appeared on “Washington Watch” last week to share “his analysis on exactly what’s happening on the University of Missouri campus.”
As one could imagine, neither Starnes nor the program’s host, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, were particularly sympathetic to the protests of the university’s handling of race issues, which they labeled as a threat to the survival of America.
They even questioned whether state universities should still receive public funding. “We could be funding the demise of America,” Starnes said. “We are funding these colleges and universities and they’re the ones that are espousing these fascist and socialist ideas.”
Starnes went on to say that if people don’t “wake up” and “stand up and say we’re not going to tolerate this with our tax money, then we may not have a country much long.”
