Fox News’ Pirro Makes Herself Look Like an Absolute Fool During Over-the-top ISIS Rant

pirro-fox-newsI’ll admit that I’ve used some hyperbole when discussing Fox News, but that’s just the nature of writing. But I’m serious when I say that the segment I just watched from Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro is probably the most outrageous thing I’ve ever seen from the network.

And, yes, that includes Eric Bolling’s recent segment where he essentially said it’s time for our government, and Americans in general, to start profiling all Muslims.

But this rant by Pirro is possibly the most over-the-top, fear mongering pile of garbage I’ve ever seen. Don’t get me wrong, I think everyone should watch every second of it. Not because it’s filled with content people need to know about, but because you can’t grasp the absurdity of it without actually seeing it for yourself.

Before discussing the part which proved how ridiculous this woman is, let me summarize the entire thing for you:

  • ISIS is the worst thing humanity has ever seen.
  • The government can’t protect you.
  • The Obama administration is incompetent.
  • Start buying your end of the world supplies now.
  • Be afraid, be very afraid.

That’s generally it. And no, I’m not exaggerating. In fact, I’m probably underselling it a bit.

But the one line that really proved just how outlandish this was came at the very beginning when Pirro had the nerve to say that, in ISIS, the United States is facing the “single biggest threat in her more than 200-year history.”

Yes, she’s telling all of us that ISIS poses a bigger threat to the United States than:

  • Nazi Germany (which took over most of Europe)
  • The Empire of Japan (which bombed Pearl Harbor)
  • The Soviet Union during the Cold War (which parked nuclear weapons 90 miles off our coast)

And she specifically pointed out that ISIS is a bigger threat than what we faced during WWI, WWII, Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

I’m sorry, but if you honestly believe that, for lack of a better word, you’re an absolute idiot.

Look, I fully believe that ISIS is a threat. I’ve even said that I believe using ground forces isn’t a matter of if, but when. This is an extremely dangerous group that is unlike any other terrorist organization we’ve ever seen.

But for anyone to sit there and claim that with ISIS the United States is witnessing its biggest threat ever – even bigger than Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union or the Empire of Japan during WWII – is so outrageous it’s actually laughable.

Nazi Germany damn near took over an entire continent. We’re not talking about a slightly organized group of Islamic radicals commandeering military equipment they’ve seized in Iraq and Syria. Oh, no. Nazi German was an empire built on racism and genocide. An empire that clearly had its sights set on global domination.

To put it into perspective, though estimates vary, World War II itself is credited with anywhere between 50 and 80 million deaths. For a war that lasted just 6 years and 1 day that averages out to between 23k-36k deaths per day, every single day – for six straight yearsJust let that sink in for a moment. Could you imagine that kind of death toll being reported on nowadays?

The fact that Pirro was actually a judge terrifies me, because this woman is clearly unhinged. Well, that’s even if she believes the nonsense she spews. While she dismissed the notion that her over-the-top ISIS rhetoric was meant to make for “good television,” one can’t help but wonder if these comments are nothing more than her pandering to the viewers that she knows tune in to her show.

    Given how many of Fox’s target audience are WW2 Vets, you’d think they would know better than to make such a stupid comparison.

    • Gary Jenkins

      Many of us do!

    • Stephen Barlow

      What is painfully terrifying is that these senile Vets ARE BUYING HER BULLSHIT!!!!!!
      What more needs to be scene from FOX BLATHER to completely discredit them as reliable?

  • HoldenLitgo

    That Fox News is actually leading the discussion on this for so many is more frightening than ISIS.

    • giankeys loves shemale porn

      FOX “news” will complain about a sunny cool day right after a hurricane; complain about a cure for cancer being “anti business” for doctors/ medical companies and complain that EQUAL equality for gays and minorities will sully the WHITE America’s seeking ” the pursuit of happiness”

    • Stephen Barlow

      Is ISIS KOCH funded?

      • Glenn Taylor

        Obama funded stupid.

      • Stan Jones

        Jesus Christ , you are one fucked up idiot.

    • Glenn Taylor

      Jesus Christ you are one fucked up idiot.

      • HoldenNLitgo

        Not that I care, but that’s a terrible thing to say about Jesus Christ.

  • diablodejalisco

    fear is the name of the game. keep them in fear and control them. just like religion.

    • giankeys loves shemale porn

      to quote the ” FONZ”,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, CORRECT-A-MUNDO!!!

  • giankeys loves shemale porn

    she is an archetypel FOX “news” skanky female— overpaid…..bellicose,,,, a micromastial virago who is TOTOTOTALLY p*ssed off at life due to her poor choices in her socio-sexual arcane life ( see: male companionships) which has been engendered BY her lack of cup size— Coulter and Tantaros and Ingraham and Kelly and Hasselbeck and ESPECIALLY Malkin (UGGGH!!) all exhibit the symptoms of anatomically infuriated ‘waifs’ who KNOW that they are NOT truly wanted by the aesthetic-seeking males. Please take comfort in the fact that she will soon be out of a job and possibly fall in2 alcoholism and suicide.

    • Morgan O’Brien-Bledsoe

      Your as big of a pig as Rush.

      • felipe63

        Hey I have a pig, and she is intelligent, affectionate and capable of learning, all things Rush L is not 🙂

      • Glenn Taylor

        Isn’t she running for President?

      • felipe63

        Hey I have a pig, and she is intelligent, affectionate and capable of learning, all things Rush L is not 🙂

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        nice try— your ” morgan” photo– with that clown guy in pic– cried on another blog because ” he ” couldn’t READ and ASSIMILATE– what I had written as sarcasm. U must be a troll.
        please note– if U are a female– U MUST be 100% physically similar to my above description of those flat chested skanky wanna be chics on FOX. I am NOT as BIG as a PIG such as RUSH– im very athletic and 6’3 212 lbs. socially? do U want to see the women I have entered all of my life? not skanks such as YOU– I ONLY do shapely well chested women- so I ask u/ beg u to keep crying ! keep crying to re-inforce that which we already know– U are miserable because U own mirrors and those glass reflections remind U daily of how and WHY U hate yourself.
        micromastial women should NOT be allowed to reproduce
        =============================================

        your self admission of being BIPOLAR is glaringly evident

      • Glenn Taylor

        Right, you want to dance little man?

  • Steve Goetz

    Absolutely nuts. Fear mongering for control, just like rising dictators. The only savings grace is that the next video is of a dog eating corn. Cute!

    • Glenn Taylor

      Yep, nothing but fear mongering while terrorists slaughter innocent people and he does nothing about it, just fear mongering, nothing but women and children, Allah help you people, why don’t you leave, go to a country where the government controls everything, oh shit, you did that here.

  • The lines “The government can’t protect you, ” and “Start buying your end of the world supplies now” are a dead giveaway to her true purpose. It would not surprise me were I to learn that this dingbat is being paid by gun and ammo manufacturers to spread fear and hatred in order to boost gun and ammo sales or that she owns stock in Colt or Smith & Wesson etc.

    • giankeys loves shemale porn

      highly accurate– allow me to add her splendid paycheck from FOX “news” in which her jejune bloviations will further engender the white trash regressive republican low IQ religious lemmings into hating anything associated with this administration.

  • Nemisis

    Well that didn’t take long.
    Fox Commentator Channel is open for business.

  • Pipercat

    Virtually untouched by war! Guess ol’e vinegar face never heard of Antietam…

    … just as one example.

    • giankeys loves shemale porn

      that’s why she used the word VIRTUALLY— a panacea when bloviating as she does

  • Holy crap….this women is an idiot…for lack of a better term! She undermines our military and and our security by her stupidity! So disappointing that people like her are allowed to even speak on public television! Actually, Judge, the military does not want boots on the ground! Perhaps you should know your USSOCOM commanders and the separate branches of each military force, and actually listen to the facts!!! You are more of a danger to this country than anyone!!

  • Ray Hamel

    Meanwhile, Republican’s favorite trading partner, Saudi Arabia, beheaded 19 people last month alone. But Exxon makes a heap of cash there, so never mind.

    • Bill Elder

      Which republican?

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        the PRIOR us administrations “republican”
        =======================================
        but—u already know this

      • Glenn Taylor

        Yes, 8 year old history has a great deal to do with today’s America, what a bunch of moops.

  • “Absolute Idiot” is two words.
    Do we know what kind of judge she was? Rabid dog show judge? Judge of ‘big hair’?

    • Glenn Taylor

      It does, and you are.

    • Glenn Taylor

      It is and you are.

  • DSparks

    Fear mongering idiot

  • Bill Elder

    So, it took a l o n g time to find something over the top on Fox eh? Doesn’t take long at all on media owned by NBC or CNN. 😉

    • giankeys loves shemale porn

      FOX isn’t over the top– they remain attuned to the white trash regressive low IQ inbred scum who watch them

  • Sandy Greer

    I think they’re coming too. And that killing messengers won’t stop them.

    • giankeys loves shemale porn

      well; I might add that if ISIS /ISIL keeps irritating the remainder of arabs in that region that ISIS/ ISIL will have their hands full with the various religious groups in that area. Too much money to be lost letting these cretins takeover

  • jefns

    What is just as bad is when people down play it. Is it the worst threat in the history? Absurdity. I think she is acting emotionally, but I don’t believe it is over reacting. I think they are angry the republicans are not in power at the moment.

  • Rick Flash

    This is the kind of fear-mongering that put Hitler and other dictators in power. Sickening.

  • deckbose

    This woman is despicable.

  • mms

    “Judge” Pirro? This is the most unbalanced person I have seen in a while. Someone should get her a head scan, I think she may have a brain tumor.
    (This is not to make light of folks that have brain tumors. I truely am afraid of this woman and the words coming out of her mouth.) Unfortunate that she has a platform for so many “shepple” watching. Scary, crazy, nutberger.

    If she is so gun hoe about going to war, why doesn’t she sign up and join the military.

  • Eg Kbbs

    If I were more suspicious, I’d look at how many Faux, Alex Jones, etc. are pushing expensive disaster-food-supplies and wonder if they or their organization was getting a cut of the action.

  • mctomkat

    Couldn’t make it all the way through that stale propaganda. Ï’ve been telling you for *months* to be afraid”!!! LO freaking L what a twit.

    • Glenn Taylor

      Yes you are.

    • Glenn Taylor

      I sincerely hope the next ones slaughtered are related to you, I wonder how you will feel then?

      • mctomkat

        What a kind thought. Thank you for revealing how conservatives think.

  • Mike Franklin

    How much she got paid by Fox News to bring this dramatic speech in national TV and accusing our military force and the president. She needs real time to evaluate her fact before she talk in public TV

  • ronan macruairi

    firstly, putting the words “fox” and “news” together is the ultimate piss take! So anyone who takes their infantile babbling seriously or as anything more than one sided, zero researched fear mongering is just as thick as them! Albeit as dangerous as it is, it is still entertaining to see “news anchors” spew this muck as if it was concrete, non opinionated news of the world. In fact if they called themselves a satire channel, it would be more realistic. Total morons, the whole fucking lot of them!

    • Glenn Taylor

      Right, yeah OK, what a fucking idiot. I’ll tell you what ronan, where do you live? We might be able to discuss this up close and personal. Fuck you.

  • I cant even go to Taco Bell now because I might get my head cut off….

    Thanks Obama…

    /sarcasm off

    • Glenn Taylor

      I sure hope you do, but don’t worry it won’t effect how dumb you are in any way.

  • AlCum

    She’s a Class A Moran, which suits her perfectly for a show on Fox.

  • Frooble Rippers

    “Yawn”….. …. .. .

  • Mark O’Leary

    “The simple truth: we are not prepared, and certainly not ready.” How many of her viewers realized the “prepared” and “ready” are the same thing?

    • Cris Clover

      Prepared and ready are not the same. Prepared means, you have done all you can do to get ready. Ready means, you have accepted the situation and have a mind set to keep calm and react accordingly. Most people in an emergency do not have a clear head to act effectively.

  • radsenior

    She must be listening to FOX!

  • Holli

    It’s only fear mongering if people are afraid. Smh. Btw- I don’t recall the Nazis bringing down buildings in NYC……

  • kittyinasock

    I’m stealing this line, but “Her eyes are like stars. Not because they twinkle, but because they’re so far apart.”

  • Cris Clover

    HOW FAST YOU PEOPLE FORGET ABOUT WHAT 911 WAS LIKE! I can’t imagine you
    people live in New York. Maybe you should refresh your memory about
    how there was information that was ignored by our government. DO YOU
    EVEN KNOW HOW MANY LIVES WERE LOST OR EVEN CARE HOW THAT COULD HAPPEN.
    If you think she is wrong – you are wrong. You should stop watching fox
    news and start watching European news reports on cable where the news is
    not manufactured to suit political agendas. You should watch the videos
    put out by islam for our eyes to see the thousands of supporters they
    have, enough to infiltrate the world to make a difference for their
    cause. Wake up and smell the coffee or the lights will go out and you
    will be eating your words.

    • Glenn Taylor

      They don’t have the acumen or intellect to look beyond their own hatred, they don’t understand reality or the racial hatred that has been perpetrated by their president, never in history has there been a more divisive leader. He is already ranked as the fifth WORST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY and his Executive orders still have another year to destroy. They don’t see the fact that people Obama has released from Gitmo are appearing in ISIS videos, murdering people. He is culpable and he knows it, that is the reason he strives to separate the terrorism being perpetrated from what it is. Workplace violence, domestic violence, Gun control. Talk about stupid.

  • Glenn Taylor

    Actually, she is an idiot, but much more dangerous is the ridiculous people in charge of the government at this point, Obama has put in charge some of the most unqualified morons in the history of morons. Shove your progressive garbage up your collective asses you blind dangerous morons.
