Fox News host Geraldo Rivera on Friday declared that Muslims needed to “evolve” because they were “almost childlike” and would become enraged for almost any reason.

During a segment on Fox & Friends, Rivera explained that Muslim protesters in Libya and Egypt had reacted to an anti-Islamic film with violence because “there’s a big hunk of the Muslim world that’s a hundred years behind us in terms of political sophistication. These are folks easily enraged by something like this movie.”

“They have a hundred years to evolve to catch up to anything like the sophistication of the west,” the Fox News host later repeated. “We have to appreciate that in some ways, they are almost childlike, dare I say it?”
