On "The Kelly File" tonight, Michelle Malkin reacted to the head of the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division blaming the Baltimore riots on slavery.
Megyn Kelly explained that during a speech yesterday, Vanita Gupta said that the "looting, mayhem and violence is based on a mistrust" of police officers, stemming from their "predecessor's enforcement of slavery and Jim Crow laws."
Malkin said that Gupta is "emblematic of the radical transformation that's taken place at the Department of Justice."
"You have a Department of Justice that is actually the department of social justice," Malkin said.
She said that Gupta has no pretense of being a neutral arbiter of the law.
"To invoke Jim Crow is pouring gasoline on a fire that has been raging for decades," Malkin said. "It is so poisonous. Not only does it continue to put our law enforcement officers of all colors in danger, but it also stokes this racial resentment and division."
Malkin asserted that this is the climate that "progressive ideologues" like President Obama and Gupta have been "marinated in."
Malkin also discussed her latest book, Who Built That: Awe-Inspiring Stories of American Entrepreneurs, which is based on the famous "you didn't build that" comment by President Obama during the 2012 campaign.
She said that her book delivers a message to young people about the promise of social mobility in America.
