Georgia pundit and anti-immigration activist Phil Kent recently attacked Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn as a "female airhead," refusing to apologize after a co-panelist called on him to do so for the "offensive" remark.
Kent is the executive director of the virulently anti-immigrant hate group, Americans for Immigration Control (AIC), and previously worked for the Augusta Chronicle and as press secretary for former Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-SC). He's a sitting panelist on The Georgia Gang, a Sunday political talk show in Atlanta.
As first highlighted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Kent lobbed sexist attacks at the state's female Democratic Senate candidate on the October 5 edition of The Georgia Gang, calling Nunn a "female airhead" and "absolutely unqualified on foreign policy." Even after a co-panelist said Kent should apologize for his comments, Kent refused:
Fox News and CNN recently hosted Phil Kent of Americans for Immigration Control (AIC) and the American Immigration Control Foundation (AICF), a group that has ties to white nationalists and "sells ... publications authored by racists and anti-immigrant figures who routinely demonize immigrants," according to the Anti-Defamation League. Moreover, Kent himself has a history of inflammatory rhetoric, including asserting that Barack Obama is a "dangerous, anti-white multiculturalist."
