What Species Are The Italians and The Irish?

What Species Are The Italians and The Irish? July 9, 2009

PZ Myers watches FOX and Friends so we don’t have to:

Brian Kilmeade is, for some unknown reason, trying to dismiss a study that found that married people were at a lower risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

his reasons for dismissing its applicability to Americans are bizarre.

BRIAN KILMEADE: We keep marrying other species and other ethnics–

GRETCHEN CARLSON: Are you sure they are not suffering from some of the causes of dementia right now?

BRIAN KILMEADE: The problem is the Swedes have pure genes. They marry other Swedes, that’s the rule. Finns marry other Finns; they have a pure society. In America we marry everybody. We will marry Italians and Irish.

WTF? Italians and Irish are not part of “we”? They’re a different species? Intermarriage between ethnicities is a problem?

This is something like 19th century racism. By the way, Kilmeade is a vocal conservative Christian.
