#ReclaimMLK: Fox News Tells Martin Luther King Jr’s Niece That Her Uncle Would Feel Bad About ‘The War On Police’

Well, file this one under the outlandish and bizarre, even for Fox News Networks. Speaking to Alveda King – the niece of MLK well known for her conservative views – the co-hosts of Fox and Friends suggested that the recent Black Lives Matter demonstrations scheduled throughout the country had turned the holiday into a ‘day of violence against police officer.’

Via Raw Story:

Both of two segments on Monday’s edition of Fox & Friends that mentioned MLK Day asserted that three recent shootings of police officers were part of a “war on police.”

“Today is, of course a big holiday all across the country,” Fox News host Steve Doocy told MLK’s niece, Alveda King. “You look at Black Lives Matter, you look at the war on police and even the political tone in the nation. What would your uncle think about what’s going on in his America today?”

Aveda King, who is often featured on Fox News for her conservative views, suggested that some people were “stirring up that fear and that anger.”

“Put some solutions on the table, teaching people to use their words, rather than bombs or guns or fists,” she said. “And use their words to heal rather than destroy.”

A second “Fox News Alert” segment also used King’s holiday to highlight the “war on police.”
