When NBC fired Megyn Kelly over a controversy surrounding remarks about blackface, everyone thought her career was over.
If Kelly wanted to make a comeback, everyone figured she would have to apologize and blame everything on Donald Trump.
And now Megyn Kelly just made on confession that will shock you.
NBC axed Kelly after she said that people dressed in blackface for Halloween when she was a kid and no one complained.
Kelly made that comment in the context of a discussion of how Social Justice Warriors are ruining Halloween by claiming that certain costumes are racially insensitive because of “cultural appropriation.”
But Kelly has not backed down on her attack on political correctness.
In fact, she highlighted her agreement with left-wing comic Bill Maher and his attack on the online outrage mobs’ attempts to suffocate American life with made up controversies.
I have criticized Bill Maher many times (and vice versa) but the man is dead right about the pc police & their fake self-righteousness. https://t.co/hj5cvEfFmM

Appearing on Chris Cuomo’s CNN program, Maher slammed politically correct Social Justice Warriors.
“I go after them because they need going after,” Maher told Cuomo.
“They don’t help themselves a lot. I think this far left political correctness is a cancer on progressivism.”
Mahr added that he thought Trump supporters stuck by the President because Trump fought back against the totalitarian forces of political correctness.
Bill Maher stated:
“When you talk to Trump supporters, they’re not blind to his flaws but they always say he’s not politically correct. I don’t think you can overestimate how much people have been choking on political correctness and hate it. There were two studies about this recently … The vast majority of liberals in this country hate it. They think political correctness has gone way too far. No one likes to be living on egg shells,” Mahr added.
Celebrities and news personalities in Kelly’s position usually try to make peace with their tormentors.
The normal path to a comeback is groveling before the groups you offended and begging for forgiveness.
But instead, Megyn Kelly is doubling down.
Do you agree with Megyn Kelly that the PC police are out of control?
