Bill O'Reilly: Confusion over protecting America

Talking Points 9/18


By Bill O'Reilly

Former President Jimmy Carter an avowed liberal man not considered a warrior by anyone, said this in Atlanta Tuesday night.


CARTER: I think we need to attack ISIS. I'm really concerned about them. Is the bombing of ISIS justified? I say yes and I hope that President Obama has every possible success in getting allies to join with us, some with ground troops that are effective inside Syria.


O'REILLY: Well that's about as obvious as I've ever heard Mr. Carter who generally does not like confrontation even though he has a military background as a naval officer and then there is Secretary of State John Kerry confronted by Code Pink demonstrator demonstrators, Kerry called out the peace group.


KERRY: Code Pink was started by a woman and women who were opposed to war but who also thought that the government's job was to take care of people. You ought to care about fighting ISIL because ISIL is killing and raping and mutilating women and they believe women shouldn't have an education. They sell off girls to be sex slaves to jihadists. There is no negotiation with ISIL.


O'REILLY: Now I have always wondered about the anti-war people who will allow the worst atrocities to take place but still cloak themselves in moral garments.

Last night on "The Factor", both Alan Colmes and Dennis Kucinich said they would have allowed ISIS to kill the innocent people stranded in northern Iraq and thousands of Kurds, as well.

You remember only U.S. bombing saved those people and Colmes and Kucinich flat out reject any U.S. military action against ISIS. That seems strange to me. They are good guys. Colmes and Kucinich are good guys.

But how can you let innocent people die when you can save them? Especially when the group committing the murders are committed to killing you. That's another story and I well know that failing to stop evil leads to more evil. Hitler could have been taken out earlier but the Peace for Our Time crowd lead by the British Prime Neville Chamberlain failed to confront the Fuhrer and look what happened.

But let's get back to Jimmy Carter. Whenever you have a guy like that convinced the country is being threatened, you got to take it seriously. Even Yoko Ono has to know. Mr. Carter is a give peace a chance kind of guy but now he wants to destroy ISIS and you know what? He's right.

And that's "The Memo".
