Congressman Tells Fox News To Fire Host For 'Racist And Xenophobic' Slur
Sahil Kapur – July 14, 2014

Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA) wants Fox News to fire commentator Bob Beckel after he used the ethnic slur "Chinamen" while claiming American-educated Chinese students return to their home country and hack into the U.S. national security apparatus.

Below is the full statement on Monday from Honda, a congressman since 2001, labeling Beckel's remarks "racist and xenophobic" and "inexcusable."

I am outraged and disgusted by Fox News commentator Bob Beckel’s use of the word “Chinamen” and his other racist and xenophobic comments. I agree with State Senator Ted Lieu, Campbell CA Councilmember Evan Low, and everyone else who has called on Fox News to fire Beckel. The ignorance and hatred in his comments are repugnant. The fact that he has yet to apologize for these comments is inexcusable. As the founder of the Congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus, I know that words hurt, and slurs are used to intimidate. Fox News needs to do the right thing and fire Bob Beckel.

Beckel co-hosts the weekday program "The Five" on Fox News.
