Bill O’Reilly couldn’t say it fast enough, he believes this is a “World War,” in the wake of the Terrorist “truck” attack in Nice, France that killed 84 and injured a hundred more. Donald Trump then agreed, said it was his idea all along, then promised to make it happen. He will ask for a declaration of war against a nebulous enemy.
In answer to O’Reilly asking if Trump would ask for a Declaration of war, there was no “when the facts come in,” there was only a ravening agreement that we need to declare war against an extremist sect of a Religion.
I would, I would, this is war.
He then continued with a totally debunked talking point that Muslim refugees are “security threats,” saying we have no idea who they are or where they come from calling it the greatest Trojan Horse of all time. The saddest thing, Trump has been making these claims for months and has been rated a liar by Politifact over and over when it comes to his baseless comments on refugees.
This comment was NOT from this interview — though you will find that he makes an almost identical claim starting at 3:07– and was rated as “PANTS ON FIRE” back in May. He literally pulled this out of his ass, back then, and did it again today while assuring the world that based on these lies he will try to force NATO into “wiping out ISIS.”
Look, we are at war with these people and they don’t wear uniforms. … This is a war against people that are vicious, violent people, that we have no idea who they are, where they come from. We are allowing tens of thousands of them into our country now.
In contrast, President Obama and Hillary Clinton both responded to the tragedy, both without lying or trying to drag the US into a “World War” with a splinter group of that represents a paltry percentage of the world’s Muslims. Both without fear-mongering, and both with concrete statements that shored up the nation’s confidence.
According to Addicting Info:
President Obama said, “I condemn in the strongest terms what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack in Nice, France, which killed and wounded dozens of innocent civilians.”
In contrast to Trump and O’Reilly and their “world war” rhetoric, Hillary Clinton appeared on CNN with Anderson Cooper and stressed that “this is a horrific attack” and that instead of the O’Reilly/Trump push for a wide war, “we are at war with these terrorist groups and what they represent.”
You see, President Obama has been fighting these terrorists where they are, shrinking their territory and saving lives without declaring war because we aren’t fighting a nation and a government, we are fighting militias that have delusions of grandeur. We are fighting men and women who by and large aren’t particularly religious but, in fact, are using the principles of a religion to achieve political aims. We are engaged in a battle with Terrorists who have no borders.
The Right Wing, Fox News, and Trump seem bent on legitimizing these groups playing government instead of working with the countries in which they have set up “house.” Trump seems bound and determined to pull our planet into a war with an entire religion over lies.
Our children can be drafted into such a fight, not his, of course, or his grandchildren either — high numbers and a few bone spurs take car of that for the rich. Being “at war” has broad reaching consequences. It is highly doubtful that the politics dabbling Trump truly understands those consequences except for the potential of massive profits to the Military industrial complex.
Donald Trump just promised us that he will manufacture WWIII, and that will make him even better loved by the insane GOP war mongers. Your vote is necessary to stop those who are attempting to fragment his opposition and hand him the presidency despite the fact that 60 percent of the country doesn’t want him.
Watch him try to create a world panic here:
