Fox News’ Bigoted Logic: ‘Not All Muslims are Terrorists, but All Terrorists are Muslim’ (Video)
October 15, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)— Not all Fox News’ hosts are bigoted morons, but all bigoted morons work at Fox News. Not all Jews pinch pennies, but all penny pinchers are Jews. This is the convoluted bigoted and offensive circular “logic” that was on display from the dim-witted crew of Fox & Friends this morning. Last year co-host Brian Kilmeade wowed us with his nativist insight, by declaring that Americans have been polluting the white gene pool by “marrying other species and other ethnics,” unlike Sweden that has “pure genes.” This morning, Kilmeade supported his colleague Bill O’Reilly’s display of bigoted bullying and Islamophobia on ABC’s The View that prompted co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to storm off the set, after O’Reilly said “Muslims killed us on 911.” How did Kilmeade manage to defend O’Reilly’s hate speech? He offered up some of his own. “Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim,” said Kilmeade as Gretchen Carlson and Steve Doocy nodded in agreement.
Non-Muslim Domestic terrorists such as Timothy McVeigh apparently don’t exist in the alternate reality of Fox News that race baits and demonizes scary people of color and undocumented immigrants on a daily basis. And Fox News has been aggressively pushing the “Ground Zero Mosque” story, by stoking fear and hate.
While discussing O’Reilly’s shameful appearance on The View yesterday, Kilmeade decided that the View ladies couldn’t handle the mighty intellect and debating skills of O’Reilly.
“That debate is like our debate on training wheels. That’s our debate seven weeks ago. And they can’t handle the give and take of a debate. Somebody was saying there’s a reason there’s a certain group of people attacked us on 9/11. It wasn’t just one person. It was, it was one religion. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.”
Last night on his Fox News program, O’Reilly defended his bigoted boorishness and bullying, blaming the dust-up on “liberal women.”
“I didn’t mean to denigrate the Muslim religion, but I accurately described who attacked us on 9/11, causing two very liberal women to walk off the set. I’m still amazed!”
No, O’Reilly, you DID “denigrate the Muslim religion” and you know you did. In fact, that was your intention.
As for Kilmeade, he’s conspicuously unintelligent, as well as an intolerant hack. But that’s par for the course at Fox News.
