The Stupid, It Burns: Fox News host Bill Hemmer is mocked online after warning that “cancel culture” will “come after Bible characters next.”

The Hill reports:

Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer said Friday that “cancel culture” will “come after Bible characters next” during a discussion of the Chicago initiative to review historical statues in the city, including ones of former President Lincoln.

Mediaite reports:

Cancel culture could “come after Bible characters next,” warned Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer on Friday, during a segment about Chicago putting dozens of its monuments under review.

During a segment on Chicago monuments, a self-righteous if clueless Hemmer declared:

If they start canceling American presidents, they’ll come after Bible characters next.

On the program reporter Carley Shimkus said:

You have to wonder, are we in a transition period in our country right now where our grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren might not think of these people the way we do? They might not be taught in the same way we know them now. I say more statues, not less, not fewer. More opinions, more ideas, not less.

Hemmer’s co-anchor Dana Perino replied:

Way, way back in the day when I was first working in local news, I was at a CBS affiliate in Springfield, Illinois, and Lincoln was everything. A part of every aspect of the city and there was even a sandwich named after Abraham Lincoln. I don’t think they’ll take the sandwich name away.

 At that point Hemmer opined:

If they start canceling American presidents, they’ll come after Bible characters next. Mark my words…

As one might imagine, Hemmer was mocked on social media for his “cancel culture” paranoia. For example:

Bottom line: Fox News host Bill Hemmer faces ridicule and derision after warning that “cancel culture” will “come after Bible characters next.”
