Fox News on Saturday hosted a Marine veteran who argued that countries like the United States and France were too concerned with the civil liberties of Muslims, and that governments should “exterminate” the terrorists that were “plaguing the entire planet.”
Nick Powers, who became a conservative celebrity after he threatened ISIS in a letter last year, told the hosts of Fox & Friends that French law enforcement agencies had been right to act quickly to kill the terrorists who attacked Charlie Hebdo.
“It just makes the thinks of the past 14 years that we’ve spend fighting terrorist groups, and how the rules and regulations and political correctness especially has caused us to be tied up,” he opined. “You know, our hands are tied behind our backs, and we’re fighting an organization that has no regards to human life.”
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade pointed out that many believe that the United States was “better than that.”
“They go an assassinate people on the street, we can’t harshly question people,” Kilmeade declared. “What do you say to people who question us?”
“War is never going to be pretty,” Powers replied. “And anybody who tries to make it pretty is a complete moron. You have to get dirty, you have to exterminate this scum that is plaguing the entire planet.”
“You know, if these guys continue to keep this up — I mean, France has been a huge proponent for the Muslim community for years, they’ve stepped aside, they’ve let us kind of do our thing, and here they are attacking France,” he added.
“Appeasement gets you nowhere!” Kilmeade exclaimed.
In conclusion, Powers had a message for Islamic radicals: “Keep it up. If you really want to meet your Prophet Muhammad, go for it. You know, there’s plenty of us out there that are willing make that meeting available to you.”

‘Pandemics expose the fissures of society’: Rev. William Barber tells CNN why people of color are hurt most by COVID-19
The Rev. William Barber told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Thursday that the COVID-19 pandemic has shown a light on racial and economic inequality in the United States, as statistics are showing a disproportionate number of people of color are dying from the disease.
After citing statistics from New York City showing that COVID-19 is killing black and Latino residents at twice the rate it's killing white residents, Camerota asked Barber to explain why he thinks the pandemic has been more lethal to communities of color.
"Pandemics expose the fissures of our society," he said. "They expose all of the things we haven't fixed prior to the pandemic. So we had less health care, we had less wages in poor communities."
Rush Limbaugh baselessly accuses Dr. Fauci of being a ‘Clinton sympathizer’ who wants to ‘get rid’ of Trump
Right wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh baselessly accused Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, of being a "Hillary Clinton sympathizer" who wants "to get rid of Donald Trump" during a Tuesday broadcast.
After claiming that the media tries to use its press briefings to undermine President Donald Trump, Limbaugh accused ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl of bringing in a reporter from Phoenix TV, a privately owned company stationed in Hong Kong with connections to the Chinese government. Limbaugh claimed that Fauci "gave Karl a-thumbs up, like a 'job well done' kind of thing" after the press briefing.
Andrew Cuomo threatens to bail on CNN interview when his brother shows vintage photo of governor in bellbottoms
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) appeared to feign anger during a CNN interview Wednesday in which his brother, Christopher Cuomo, showed a vintage photo of their family with the elder brother clad in bellbottoms, a rhinestone belt and an unfortunate attempt at an afro.
The younger Cuomo is still suffering from the effects of coronavirus, appearing redfaced and wiping his brow. However, his brother noted that he seemed more animated than he has in days.
"Now I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the 'Love Gov' and I'm wondering if that's making you a little soft on the president, that you don't want to really criticize him, because you need him and now's not a time for fighting," said the younger Cuomo. "But don't you have to balance that with calling him out if he's doing things that you don't think are great for the people of your state to be hearing and experiencing? Love Gov?"
