Bob Beckel, co-host of ‚ÄúThe Five,‚ÄĚ managed to keep it classy for most of the panel‚Äôs segment today on the love affair between armed radicals of the ‚Äô60s and ‚Äô70s and their devotees in Hollywood and academia. Among those fans is Jada Pinkett Smith, executive producer of a film about Angela Davis and ‚Äúthe events that turned the philosophy professor into a political icon,‚ÄĚ according to NPR.
Davis was fired from UCLA in 1970 in part because of her ‚Äúrepeated characterizations of the police as ‚Äėpigs.'‚ÄĚ We doubt it was concern for his own job that limited Beckel to just one reference to the ‚Äúpigs,‚ÄĚ for old times‚Äô sake.
