Fox News guest host Rachel Campos-Duffy, a former cast member of MTV reality show The Real World, argued on Tuesday that terrorism recruitment could be stopped if the Christian religion was more “manly” and less “feminized.”
Earlier this week, officials in a terrorism joint task force in Minneapolis and San Diego announced that six men had been charged with providing support to ISIS. Officials described the case as “peer-to-peer” recruitment where the young men had planned on self-funding their trip to Syria.
“We have an immigration and assimilation problem,” Campos-Duffy told Fox News host Harris Faulkner on Tuesday’s edition of Outnumbered. “Like, who are we actually inviting to come to our country? Do they embrace our culture? And what are we doing as a culture to help them assimilate and feel more apart of this and not have that separation that you’re talking about.”
Campos-Duffy, who is now a spokesperson for the Koch-funded Libre Initiative, suggested that Christianity was necessary to counteract the Muslim influence on young men.
“If there were groups of Catholics, young Catholic men going to Rome and joining a Crusade, I guarantee you that the media and our government and this administration would be having a very different conversation,” she insisted. “Not about this peer-to-peer thing, but really the root cause.”
“What is it? It is reforming Islam and it’s also that Christianity needs to offer a more robust, manly, not feminized version of Christianity.”
Campos-Duffy added that she hoped that Pope Frances would address the topic instead of climate change when he visited the U.S. in September.

Mnuchin admits White House has transcript of Ukraine call and ‘they’re going to be kept confidential’
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin confirmed on Sunday that the White House does have a transcript of President Donald Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
During an interview on NBC's Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Mnuchin if he had an objection to Congress' request to see a transcript in which Trump allegedly asks Zelensky to open an investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
While confirming that a transcript of the call exists, Mnuchin said that House Democrats have no right to see it.
"What I have a problem with is Congress asking for a transcript between world leaders," he told Todd. "I think that those are confidential discussions and that’s a difficult precedent."
‘Should we talk about Ivanka?’: MSNBC guest calls for Trump family investigation if Biden’s son is scrutinized
During a panel discussion on Donald Trump's call for an investigation of Joe Biden's son Hunter over his Ukraine dealings, an "AM Joy" guest said if Congress is going to investigate politician's kids why not start with Ivanka Trump and her brothers Don Jr. and Eric.
Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan called out President Donald Trump for his "brazenness" going after the former vice president's son.
"There's so much to say about this story, as for the Ukrainian denials, what are they going to do, come out and say, 'Yes, Donald Trump did pressure our president eight times in a single phone call'? It's absurd." Hasan began.
Lindsey Graham drives bus over Trump kids to get to Biden: ‘You can’t investigate one family and not the other’
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) suggested on Sunday that the children of both President Donald Trump and Joe Biden should be investigated.
While speaking to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, Graham was asked if he is calling for an investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son over dealings in the Ukraine. President Donald Trump allegedly also asked Ukraine's president for help with the Bidens.
"Yeah, I want the Department of Justice to appoint somebody to look at the role the Ukraine played if any in the 2016 elections," Graham told Bartiromo. "There are a lot of allegations out there how Ukraine fed information maybe to the Democrats."
