Fox News Host Suggests Disgusting Way to Deal with All Muslims

tantarosHyperbole in the media isn’t uncommon. Heck, I use it fairly often. It’s a tool that, when properly used, has its place.

That being said, it’s often grossly misused in disgusting and ridiculous ways. Especially on Fox News.

Take for instance when Andrea Tantaros said on Fox News’ Outnumbered that basically the only way to deal with Muslims is to put a “bullet to the head.”

She said:

“If you study the history of Islam, our ship captains were getting murdered. The French had to tip us off. I mean these were the days of Thomas Jefferson. They’ve been doing the same thing. This isn’t a surprise. You can’t solve it with a dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head. It’s the only thing these people understand. And all we’ve heard from this president is a case to heap praise on this religion, as if to appease them.”

I notice how she left out the whole part about holy wars fought by Christians that resulted in millions being slaughtered. Then again, Tantaros isn’t really known for being knowledgable about historical events.

And, of course, she finishes her rant off trying to make President Obama appear to be tolerant of groups like ISIS. Because I wouldn’t expect someone on Fox News to go off on an outrageous rant without making it an attack on the president.

But for her to lump all Muslims in with these ISIS radicals is appalling. Then to state on live television that the only way to deal with Muslims (since, you know, they’ve been doing this for centuries) is with a “bullet to the head” is pretty much hate speech.

If she wants to talk about ISIS individually as a group, that’s fine. They’re barbaric and dangerous radicals who can’t be dealt with by “diplomatic reasoning.” There’s no “reasoning” with those people.

But that’s not what she said here. She wasn’t condemning radical Muslims or the elements of Islam which deserve harsh criticism. She was evoking history (well before ISIS existed), going all the way back to the days of Thomas Jefferson, to stir up extreme hatred toward Islam and Muslim people. Inferring that it’s not ISIS that’s really the issue, but Muslims in general. You know, because they’ve “always” acted like this.

And according to her, the only way to solve this “problem” is with a “bullet to the head.”

What Ms. Tantaros seems to not understand is that every religion, even Christianity, has been used to justify horrific acts throughout human history. That’s why I’m not a fan of organized religion. Faith is fine. But once people start turning faith into an organized religion to control people, that’s when many of those individuals use it to justify atrocities. Which is exactly what terrorist groups like ISIS do.

But for Tantaros to sit there and compare all Muslims to these ISIS fanatics, essentially suggesting that we should “get rid of” all Muslims, is outrageous and reprehensible.

Though, for Fox News, comments such as these aren’t at all uncommon or surprising.

    Is she even white? My last name ends with an “O”, my ancestors that came to America were looked down upon, with such hatred as this tw_t has in her little black cold dead heart. She is just a generation or two from her relatives who were spoken about the same way she speaks of Muslims. “Immigrants”, as were her grandparents probably, were considered lower than rat droppings. This woman is an ugly bitch! Plus she looks like a hooker in that pic included. What’s to come of traditional woman if they dress like her and speak so unlady like? Showing all that skin! She is probably trying to use her secret evil seductress powers to make men cheat on their wives. She should be burned at the stake a.s.a.p. !!!

    • Sherri G

      You sound as crazy as her with your random rant….

      • Jane Woodman Kelly

        The first part is true. The Italians, the Irish, the Polish, the Chinese, Catholics, Jews…you name it. The last to arrive were considered the lowest of the lowest. I wish Muslims in this country would stand up and speak up for their religion, Islam…the true story. I’m sure most fear identifying themselves as such, and I can’t blame them.

      • Telly Samba

        They do. The problem is…no one listens. Many times Muslim groups have have stepped forward denouncing the extremists, only to be ignored by the media. It’s not for lack of effort on the part of Muslims, it’s lack of interest on the part of the general public.

      • strayaway

        9/11, Fort Mead, and the Boston Marathon bombings were “true stories” as are the stories of hundreds of Somali youth, born and raised in Minneapolis, going off to fight for Al-Queda and IS. The article is correct in mentioning that Christians had a despicable phase too but that was hundreds of years ago. Hindu, Christian, and Buddhist immigrants don’t put such stresses on the system. A temporary hiatus on most Muslim immigration until Islam gets past this similar phase seems a practical defensive response. I’m not suggesting putting anyone in detention camps like Roosevelt did to Japanese Americans but something more like the restriction of immigration from Communist countries during the cold war. I’m sure most Russians were good people too but it would have been imprudent to have allowed immigration from Russia and East Germany during those times.

      • chaserblue

        You’re kidding right? You should ask the Uganda gay community about the good Christian folk from the United States that traveled to their country and stirred up such hate and vitriol that they’re just a hair’s breadth away from the death penalty. It’s not the only place, either. Fundamentalist Christians traveled to these countries, working with the lawmakers to get homosexuals outlawed and ostracized. They face beatings, death, life imprisonment and all sorts of atrocities in the name of the Christian god. People in this country murder doctors in church, bomb clinics. How can sit there and say that Christian’s despicable phase was hundreds of years ago? Because from the look of it in this country, they never stopped. Just look at rabid right, our own personal American Taliban.

      • strayaway

        I’m not kidding and neither are those doing beheadings, genital mutilations, blowing up skyscrapers, burning down churches full of people in Nigeria or girls schools in Afghanistan, making women wear tents, imposing Sharia law and taxes on Non-Muslims, creating violent conflict in with every culture they encounter, and enslaving women and children. How many abortionists have been killed in the US in comparison, eight? That many black people get killed in Chicago on a bad weekend. That’s the problem with your oblivious to danger dodo like or Arawak like argument. You omit the quantitative part of the equation. I don’t even think Obama should be bombing IS without the consent of Congress but Defense 101 begins with responding to reality and locking the door until danger passes. We trade and have good relations with Germany, Japan, Russia, and Vietnam now but it would have been foolish to not adjust our immigration policies during even cold wars just as it is foolish not to adjust them now. When we feel so secure about not facing any more 9/11 attacks that we disband the TSA, then we should again welcome Muslims as we have the Vietnamese. As it stands, the Obama administration kept the Tsarnaev brother here even after the Russian government had warned the US about them and the Bush administration did not enforce immigration laws allowing 9/11 “immigrants” to overstay their visas and take pilot lessons. Meanwhile our Border Patrol is tied up babysitting while “immigrants’ from all over the world cross the border with who knows what intent and provisions. This situation is exponentially more dangerous then having 8 doctors murdered over maybe 50 years. It is like equating the common cold with ebola.

      • Di Kelley

        You disgust me. You sound like my husband, but at least he has a *reason* for his dislike of arabs. Not that it matters, I take him to task for it anyway. There are good people and bad people in every race, religion, creed, and gender. Spreading the stereotype that *every* muslim is this way simply enflames the radical elements and makes it harder to bring them under control. Not only that, the numbers don’t make a difference. Violence is violence, whether it’s eight people dying, or thousands. It’s still wrong, and it still must be countered.

      • strayaway

        Mass execution, beheadings, and genital mutilations are disgusting. You are confusing “Arabs” with “Muslims”. IS, for instance, is an Islamist (the bad kind) organization that kills and enslaves thousands of Christian and Yazidi Arabs. IS even cuts children in half after they are born. I agree that there are good and bad people in all religions. Islam, however, seems to distinguish itself with a violent minority found to much lesser degrees these days in other religions and seems to be a ‘carrier’ for this minority’s violence. I agree that all violence, whether we are talking about killing eight abortionists over 50 years or executing 1,600 Iraqi soldiers just last week, should be countered but 8 is not = to 1,600 and it follows that responses not be equal.

      • Di Kelley

        Well, he confuses them, but beside the point. My point was of course that not every person of a particular religion/race/etc is a certain way and perpetuating the stereotypes helps no one.

      • SteveW_DC

        I think that the good Muslims will speak out against these extremists. They are just waiting for all of the good Christians to speak out about Westboro Baptist Church, the idiot preacher in Florida who keeps burning Qurans and all of the other hate filed rants done in the name of Christian religion. While it generally lacks the violence, the hatred and vitriol is present here as well. I think a much better solution is that good people of all religions, and lack of religion, should be speaking out about to end all violence and hatred.

      • leslie crockett

        It was scarcasm!

  • barefoot bob

    Quick, someone give her a horse and a sword, point her to the Middle East, where she can take up the Crusade.

    • strayaway

      The good news is that Westboro Baptist has accepted an offer to go to Iraq to protest IS. Is this an example of karma or fate?

    • Gloria Hopkins

      SOMEBODY needs to do the Rogue President’s job.

      OTOH, I just looked at the front page of this site – mostly devoted to slamming FoxNews. That tells you who you fear. As you should. And, FOOLS, Ms. Tantaros was talking about Islamic EXTREMISTS, not Muslims in general. And, she’s absolutely right. BULLET IN THE HEAD.

  • Pipercat

    86! The combined IQ of the entire panel!

  • Telly Samba

    I hope no one takes this wretched cretin seriously.

  • Steve Goetz

    She seems to go back and forth between Muslims and ISIS, not drawing a distinction. So it’s not clear to me that she’s anti-Muslim, just a very poor communicator. But hey, she’s only in the communications business!

  • Richard Mcgee

    With logic like that all of us on the left should say the only way to stop the right is a bullet in their head
    This lady and this panel are morons
    To all my right wing conservative friends Please wake up please use your own common sense Open your eyes open your ears turn off Fox news And think for yourself

    • damitalljones

      You are the fool and Muslims consider you an infidel and useful idiot.

      • Richard Mcgee

        Rwnj keep watching Fuchs news

  • Phil Coolberth

    Ok replace Muslim with ISIS and we are good. Make that two to the head!

  • theoldsheepherder

    Holy shit! FOX News has a brunette news broadcaster?! I never thought I’d live to see the day. Who says FOX News aint progressive?!?!

      She hasn’t been to the hair dresser yet. Or maybe they just ran out of peroxide before it was her turn.

      • Diane

        As long as she shows her legs with her mini skirt and her décolletage the blond hair in her case doesn’t matter. She is as idiotic as the blond Barbie bimbos

    In mainstream (republican lean) media, along with lies, fear and insecurity sells very well. Fox News is the one taking it to new levels.

  • Bernie Gill

    So “this has been going on for 700 years….since the time of Thomas Jefferson”??? Perhaps an American History class is in order!

  • bobg

    Until we set aside the fairy tales and mythology of the past and embrace each other as one species we are doomed to remake mistakes. With all we know and have accomplished we still kill each other over differently shaped hats.

  • Di Kelley

    Every single religion on the face of this earth has radical elements. Well, except maybe Buddhism, but that is a different story. Point is, dealing with the entire religion in the same would you would the radical elements simply stirs those radical elements even more because they feel they’re being persecuted and martyred. Which just makes the situation worse. The answer is to make the more moderate ones see how horrible the radicals are so they distance themselves. The ones like this woman seem to have trouble figuring that out.

    • strayaway

      There was a time in Korea when many boys became monks and units of monks did battle with each other. They were reputed to be excellent warriors.

    • Volmike

      Di, I do not want to rain on your parade but Buddhism is not a religion!!

      • pdxfxdpatrick

        Yes it is, It’s just a religion that isn’t based on worshipping a theistic god. By every other definition it is. Religion has many forms and for some reason people recognize only the ones that worship something holy.

    • soap bubble

      You do get Buddhist extremists in Sri Lanka and Myanmar to name a couple. They’ve destroyed homes, towns and people who get in their way. Every religion has its own special lunatic fringe.

  • Rusti

    This is nauseating! I know some wonderful people of many faiths, including Islam. It is not the religion; it is the follower. There are Christians that scare me just as badly as terrorists of any theocratic bent. She says we need to put a bullet through the head of every Muslim? The radical Muslim doesn’t put a bullet through he head of a Christian; he severs the head. Please tell me which of these forms of hatred is less tolerable than the other? This woman should lose her job. Then again, Fox News should lose its license. Fox News does nothing but hatemonger and people like this spread hatred like manure!

    • damitalljones

      Oh bullship. Christians are not beheading but maybe they should start with you. Is your brain.n pickled?

      • Charles Hood

        damitalljones,, Where have you or at least your head been? Even the PC liberal news media have been reporting many beheading of Christians by the ISIS for a long time.

  • A’ishah

    The Muslim Believe to Kill all Non-believers: Directly from the Quran. Get the real answers from the source.

    The Quran:

    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing…

    but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”

  • Nur-ul-Qiblatayn

    The Quran is full of Fighting and killing of Muslim non-believers. Muslims believe in killing “you” if they can’t convert you. The only religion in the world that promotes violence instead of peace. The bible says to turn the other cheak and has a commandment to condemn killing.

    Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

    • Chomper Lomper Tawee

      “The bible says to turn the other cheek” Sorry but the bible promotes violence and killing. Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests

      • Taylor Russia Smith

        Not just death for not being a virgin, but being taken outside your own house and being stoned to death by every of-age man in town while your parents(or just your father) are forced to watch.

        And then of course, if you’re at war, you kill everyone except the virgin girls, whom you drag back into slavery.

      • 2Smart2bGOP

        And all those books are from the Old Testament, which are indicative of the “angry, jealous, vengeful” God, unlike the New Testament, where Jesus makes his entrance, and now we have the “loving, forgiving Father” as our God. Why do you think Jesus even exists, but to teach a better way?

  • FMJ

    Ironic, your little hero McCain, gave Isis weapons and showed his support for them, taking pictures and laughing with them. But, does anyone with any IQ, honestly think ANY President would give a speech telling the world what he plans to do to deal with any critical situation, giving them time to run and hide again? Just goes to show how stupid these people really are. It is just too sad to think there are actually people that believe their crap. Obama playing golf, is the perfect picture to make Isis think he isn’t working on something to deal with them. We all know he is in constant contact with his advisers and knows exactly what is going on, unlike Faux.

  • Uheshe

    gee guys tone it down a lot .. way too shrill for normal folk

  • forpeace

    I’m sure neither the unintelligent and misinformed Andrea Tantaros nor any of the Fox news devoted viewers have any idea whatsoever that:

    Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, through his Kingdom Holding Company, owns 7% of News Corp.’s shares, making Kingdom Holdings the second largest shareholder. Bin Talal is the main contributor to the efforts to construct the controversial islamic mosque near ground zero.

    I would like to see how Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud would react to this grossly disgusting and ridiculous way of dealing with all muslims suggested by Andrea Tantaros!

    • Volmike

      7%? PMSNBC only has a 5% positive rating in most every poll

      • 2Smart2bGOP

        Trolls need to read the entire post before making stupid statements. How does a 7% stock ownership compare to a poll rating? That isn’t even apples and oranges; more like apples and anvils. Stupid troll.

    wow – a new low for Fox, eh?

  • Jim Bean

    There you go again, Allen. You know dang well she was talking about violent Muslim extremists, not all Muslim’s in general. When she said ‘the only way to solve “it’. . . . . the ‘it’ she was talking about was murderous Islamic extremists, not Islam itself. She left out the part about the Christians crusades for the same reason she left out the GM recalls and the start of the US Open – ISIS was the topic of discussion. When you have to wander so far away from the context of what someone said to build a means of discrediting it, it may be time to reflect inward a bit and try to define just what it is that’s triggering our disingenuous behavior.

  • Scott Massar

    The funny this is W Bush also said Islam is a peaceful religion. Guess she missed that.

    I have known a few Muslims that were in the Medical profession in Orlando. I also got to see a lot of Muslims that insist upon dressing the way they would in a muslim country. The majority of Muslims are not Christians but they are few and far between. ISIS is a very dangerous group and they feel that beheading Christians is okay. They even go as far to behead babies and small children. They may already be in the US because our government has done nothing to stop any illegals into the US. Try to go to Canada and without a passport you will not get in.
