Fox’s Andrea Tantaros and Pete Hegseth think Europe is probably a goner because there are so many Muslims. And they’re multiplying!
It was all part of Outnumbered’s “analysis” as the co-hosts awaited a joint press conference between President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron. Four out of the five hosts seemed to be more interested in smearing Obama and Cameron as terrorism enablers than in anything they might say or do or have done.
“Punch” Tantaros started the discussion by smearing them both:
TANTAROS: David Cameron has taken a similar tact as President Obama. He hasn’t come out and used harsh rhetoric naming this as Islamic radicalism when there was a man wielding a meat cleaver through the streets of London. He also resisted identifying the enemy as radical Islamic jihad. Do you expect that to change today at the press conference?
Kudos to co-host Kirsten Powers for pushing back on the ridiculous Fox meme that labels are the equivalent to actually fighting terrorism. Powers said that Cameron has said “Islamic radicalism” and that that’s about as harsh as needs to be said. She added, “I don’t think this is something that’s gonna be won by rhetoric or a speech that’s given by David Cameron and Barack Obama.” She continued, “I also think that poking allies in the eye isn’t also going to help things either. …Today more than ever, those countries are on board with fighting terrorism.”
So Tantaros used that to attack Obama more specifically.
TANTAROS: So, then, the White House is actually then late to the game. …So, you look at the way other leaders have started to come around identifying the enemy as ‘radical Islam.’ President Obama still has not done that. His spokesperson hasn’t done that. Why?
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt started by pretending she was just quoting others with her attack: “Critics say that he’s appeasing the enemies here. He wants to be on their side. He wants to create world peace and not worry about the beheadings of innocent Americans, children being killed in Africa and Boko Haram burning people in their homes. This has got to stop!”
As she continued, however, Earhardt dropped the “critics say” pretense and made her criticism her own. “He’s trying to appease the enemies and – perfect example: he didn’t send anyone, a top official to represent the United States in the rally on Sunday! That was such an opportunity for him to say we stand against ISIS…”
Apparently, having our troops actually fighting ISIS doesn’t count with Earhardt.
Tantaros moved on to the Muslim “immigration situation.” She said, “The demographics are not in the favor of the west or in the favor of freedom lovers. When you look at countries like France, or like Britain, or like Germany, where these raids… are happening. …It’s a huge problem. And David Cameron and others refuse to do anything about the immigration system in their countries. It’s almost like it’s too late!
Hegseth said, “It does feel like it’s too late.” He cited Muslims having a lot more children than Westerners. “That’s a mindset of masses of Muslims that may not fight violently but they inevitably believe that the curve is not toward freedom in the west, the curve bends toward Islam and domination and submission. That’s what the president doesn’t understand.”
Powers put up a spirited argument here. But the fifth co-host, Harris Faulkner said, “You’re right, the demographics are on their side.”

nobody at Fox News ‘thinks’.
“Fear, paranoia, hatred.”
“Oh, it’s a repeat. Think I’ll watch something else.”
