Brian Kilmeade deliberately upped the Islamophobia this morning when he said to attorney and Fox News contributor Peter Johnson, Jr., "I think that we should be able to put in listening devices in (mosques). Is that possible?" Kilmeade also offered a note of sympathy to New York State Senator Greg Ball who had earlier said that "red-blooded Americans" want to torture Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Johnson batted aside the possibility of bugging mosques and he characterized Ball's comments as “kind of a wacky” and “kind of irresponsible” statement. Johnson said, “We don’t torture people here in America." But then he added, "We may engage in enhanced interrogation."
Kilmeade, however, added, "I can understand the sentiment."
"We don't torture" Johnson now said, "Yeah, the sentiment is fine but on balance it doesn’t help us."
Apparently, as far as Johnson is concerned, it's OK to want to torture, so long as it's clear you won't actually do it.
Not that I would describe what these talking heads do as “fighting”…it’s more of an antagonizing whine.
People like Kilmeade simply do not (want to) understand how badly this tendency of RWingers to justify the violation of basic human rights has already tarnished the image of the USA.
Regarding the charge against Tsarnaev (use of WMDs), I can’t for the life of me perceive much difference between a bomb and other things like assault weapons used at a packed theater or drones that shoot up people’s houses in the middle of the night.
Doesn’t Kilmeade actually listen to the news or does he just pull stuff out of his ass?! It’s ALREADY been reported everywhere (even by FOX “news”!) that the Federal Public Defenders office will represent Tsarnaev.
While Kilmeade proceeded to get even more agitated with his voice going up into the soprano range, Penis3 injected some logic and consideration for the constitutional rights of citizens into the discussion.
But Kilmeade wasn’t having any of it. In fact, he actually stated that, “not everyone is worthy of the constitutional rights that we have.”
I get confused when he says the stupidest effing things imaginable!
I wonder what Nugent or Larry Gatlin thinks about THE GUBBINMNT “bugging” mosques and or churches?
How(why) does Kilmeade still have a job that doesn’t require crayons or food taster at the CDC?
By the way, everyone below this post NAILED IT!
These Fox “News” frauds are in no position to talk about bugging a mosque, given their own legal troubles in the U.K.
Let’s talk about the catholic church’s troubles with pedophile priests. We don’t see cafeteria catholic Kilmeade speak up on the dangers of child predators in the catholic church.
NOTE TO KILMEADE
Let’s bug the catholic church. Surely, we can catch the pedophile priests in the act. But you are probably against that, you hypocrite.
Why, of course, Kill-me — provided you have a WARRANT and PROBABLE CAUSE, that is.
Um, you WERE intending to do so after obtaining a warrant, right? In case you haven’t noticed, Dumbya ain’t in office anymore; the days of warrantless wiretapping of US citizens are over.
Of course, Kill-me, depending on the location, you may hear services at the Mosque in one or more of the following languages: Arabic, Farsi, Pashto, or Urdu — hope you got translators handy.
And I agree with Aria: why limit it to just Mosques? I say, let’s bug Westboro Baptist Church — who knows what interesting things will be heard . . .
Can I bug Christian Churches to stop serial killers?
No, that’s somehow different, despite that fact that the rate for Christians becoming serial killers is much greater than the rate of Muslim terrorists in the US?
Explain how that’s different, and I’ll get back to ya. Pass it on, Intern who’s watching this site for Fox.
