During the interview with Tommy Robinson (the leader of English Defense League), Kilmeade expressed his support for the extremist group. As he was terminating the interview, he said, “Tommy, we got your back and we'll definitely look to keep in touch, it's great what you're doing."He had to face criticism for it later on and was almost fired. She co-hosted a show based on a research done in Finland and Sweden on July 8, 2009. The show discussed about the finding that people who stay married are less prone to suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. As he was commenting in the show that people in United States keep marrying other species and other ethnics, co-host Gretchen Carlson who is a Swedish descent attempted to interrupt Kilmeade. But she continued, “See, the problem is the Swedes have pure genes. Because they marry other Swedes.... Finns marry other Finns, so they have a pure society. In America we marry everybody, we marry Italians and Irish." After 12 days, he made an apology for his remarks. He said, “I made comments that were offensive to many people. That was not my intention, and looking back at those comments I realize they were inappropriate. For that I sincerely apologize. America is a huge melting pot, and that is what makes us such a great country."

 

On October 14, 2010, during a follow-up discussion to Bill O’Reilly’s appearance on The View, O’Reilly said, “People did not want a mosque built at Ground Zero because Muslims killed us on 9/11. After the comment, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walked off the show and Kilmeade dismissed the debate as elementary, saying, “There was a certain group of people that attacked us on 9/11. It wasn't just one person, it was one religion. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.” Again on his radio show Monday, he corrected himself as he said, “What I should have said, and I’d like to clarify, is all terrorists who killed us on 9/11; with the Cole; and the Khobar; and the ‘98 embassies; that’s what I should have said.” Kilmeade has been greatly criticized for being inaccurate and prejudiced because even non-Muslims have committed terrorist acts in fact.
