I don't think she's stretching it too far.. Elisabeth Hasselbeck suggests Black Lives Matter movement is hate group BY Rachelle Blidner NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Tuesday, September 1, 2015, 9:15 AM A A A Share this URL Neilson Barnard/Getty Images Elisabeth Hasselbeck suggested the Black Lives Matter movement should be labeled a hate group. Conservative TV personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck suggested that the Black Lives Matter movement is a hate group Monday, sparking outrage. While discussing a Minnesota protest, the "Fox and Friends" co-host asked a guest, "Kevin, why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified as a hate group? How much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?" Her guest, conservative black writer Kevin Jackson, said "Well they should do it, but unfortunately it's being financed by the leftists... Ironically it's people that have nothing, really no concern at all about black lives." Hasselbeck, a former co-host on "The View," was discussing the Minnesota protesters' chant of "Fry 'em like bacon! Pigs in a blanket!" the day after a Texas deputy was shot while pumping gas into his police cruiser. Comments from Hasselbeck, who first appeared as a contestant on "Survivor," prompted an outpouring of anger, despite Hasselbeck's reputation as a conservative. "Some r slow to wake," Hasselbeck's former co-host, Rosie O'Donnell wrote on Twitter. She also retweeted a post, "when r we going to declare Donald Trump as a hate group?"

This is so offensive it's hard to know where to even begin," Perez Hilton wrote in a post. It's not the first time Hasselbeck has come under fire. In July, Hasselbeck suggested Sandra Bland, who died in jail after an altercation with Texas police, may have threatened cops. Last year, she was blasted for comparing the NFL domestic abuse scandal to the Obama administration's handling of the 2012 Benghazi attack on the American consulate in Libya.
