Mick Foley Brings It On Fox News


Maybe it was a coincidence that Mick Foley — currently on a fundraising drive for RAINN — was on the late-night Fox News show Red Eye last night just as the host went on a rant about Toronto’s SlutWalk. But he wasn’t just going to sit there.

Host Greg Gutfeld proclaimed that he wasn’t against the goals of Slutwalk per se — it’s just no one ever lets him say anything bad about Muslims. Or, put another way, he accused North American feminists of turning a blind eye to the victimization of women in the Islamic world by fighting slutshaming here. Thanks for the wakeup call, Greg! You’re right, we nevertalk about that, or the views of actual Muslim women around the world, for that matter.

Anyway, Mick rightly called this out as a false choice. “Look, the world gets an F in their treatment of women,” he said. “But we’re getting a C-minus and we’re bragging about it.”
