Fox News interviews man who wishes he was a dragon

I was digging through my email from this weekend and nearly fell over when I saw that Richard Prince’s Journal-isms linked to the Fox News interview of Kenneth Eng. How did I miss this?!

Fortunately, Fox News was good enough to provide us with a transcript of the interview AND the video. Folks, try not to drink a beverage as you watch lest you spit it out through your nose from laughter.

Here are a few choice quotes:

JOHN GIBSON, HOST: Now for a “Big Story” exclusive: the author of the column “Why I Hate Blacks.”

Last week we told you about the overtly racist column which was published in San Francisco’s AsianWeek. At that point the editor of the paper had apologized for publishing the column and since then he has also fired the writer, Kenneth Eng.

What made Eng write that column in the first place? Why does he say that he hates blacks and whites and even his fellow Asians? With me now is self-proclaimed Asian supremacist Kenneth Eng.

So, Mr. Eng, have you changed your mind?

KENNETH ENG, AUTHOR OF “WHY I HATE BLACKS”: Well no, and personally if I’m racist then so is Sofia Coppola. And more importantly I’d like to talk about the philosophy of “Dragons: Lexicon Triumvirate,” which tells a story about cyborg dragons fighting in the Middle Ages. And in this realm, evolution has worked in a more logical way, even though it’s in a fantasy setting which makes it logical that dragons are more superior than humans, in that they have intelligence and are larger and they can…

May I translate that for you?

Host: So have you changed your mind about hating blacks?

Eng: No. See, there are these dragons in my science fiction novel…


GIBSON: Why do you hate blacks?

ENG: Well, you know, just to be blunt, 90 percent of them usually walk up to me and call me, you know, like for instance, ching-chong and stuff like that. I mean, I don’t really give a damn, but you know, I mean, after a while it gets pretty damn annoying. And not to mention they get so much media attention. But you know, I mean aside from that, you probably want to know why I call myself the god of the universe as well.


Gibson: Why do you hate blacks?

Eng: Cause they call me names and get media attention.

Oh, but that’s not all:

GIBSON: No, I wasn’t going to ask you about that. Why do you hate white people?

ENG: Well, you know, I mean, part of that is the fact that so many of them are Christians and religion is obviously [no audio] like a pathetic religion, just like any other religion. And the reason why I call myself god of the universe is because it’s a play on religion. It’s a parody.


Gibson: Why do you hate white people?

Eng: Because they’re all Christian. And I call myself god of the universe.

Ah, but you know, he wasn’t necessarily in a good place, you know. He was being interviewed by a white guy, and according to Journal-isms:

In a radio discussion of the interview later, Gibson called Eng “a nut job” and said, “He wasn’t actually wearing a strait jacket, believe it or not.”

“He was a little besiged when he came in,” Gibson said. “He comes in the studio and immediately does a 360. There’s Jack, the guy who does the audio, who’s black; Oscar, the cameraman who focuses on him is black,” and so are two other members of the radio crew.

“He was feeling a little besieged,” Gibson repeated.
