Kilmeade got the award by engaging in bigoted Islamophobic hate speech.
“Do you think Americans have a right to look at moderate Muslims and say, show me you’re not one of them?,” Kilmeade asked.
No Brian, Americans don’t have a right to force innocent people to prove they’re not a terrorist because it goes against everything this country stands for.
After the Oklahoma City bombing we didn’t ask every former military person to prove that they aren’t going to blow up a federal building and kill innocent women and children – that would have been outrageous to even suggest it.
He went on to say, “Not every Muslim is an extremist, a terrorist, but every terrorist is a Muslim. You can’t avoid that fact, and that is ridiculous that we’ve got to keep defining this.”
Yes, it is ridiculous that you and Fox News keep trying to portray every Muslim as a terrorist. I’d go as far as saying that it’s disgusting.
Olbermann pointed out that there have been many non-Muslim terrorists in this country, including, but not limited to Timothy McVeigh. There’s that guy who murdered Dr. Tiller for performing abortions, and that other non-Muslim who shot up the Holocaust museum – to name just a couple.
In our nation’s history, we’ve had plenty of non-Muslim terrorists and terrorist groups, the most obvious being the Ku Klux Klan.
