FOX Hosts: All Terrorists Are Muslims Who "Killed Us On 9/11"
In the past 24 hours, two Fox News hosts revealed what they really think about Muslims, shocking no one. Appearing on The View yesterday, Bill O’Reilly prompted Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to walk off the show in disgust after he declared, “Muslims killed us on 9/11.” Then on Fox & Friends this morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade said, “Not all Muslims are terrorists, all terrorists are Muslim.” Here’s video of the O’Reilly appearance, via MediaMatters:
O’Reilly’s point was that the Islamic community center and mosque shouldn’t be built two blocks away from the World Trade Center site because “Muslims killed us on 9/11.” (It’s unclear what he thinks about Catholic churches being built near schools.) Goldberg and Behar found his comment offensive, and stormed off, only to reemerge after O’Reilly qualified his statement to include “extremist Muslims.” Behar later told PopEater, “Really, is anyone talking about it? He’s an idiot. I just couldn’t sit there any longer and listen to him.”
This morning, Kilmeade’s joined in on the xenophobiapalooza in his own dunder-headed way. Salon points out that his statement “is both inaccurate and prejudiced, in a way that’s more clear-cut than [Rick] Sanchez’s semi-coherent rant. But it’s been instructive to watch how Kilmeade’s comments haven’t created much of a stir at all. Maybe it’s because this sort of thing is expected from Fox. Or maybe it’s because you can say a lot of bad stuff about Muslims with impunity.” See, Fox would never get away with this if Muslims ran the media!
