Hate speech?  Terroristic speech?  Ignorant Speech?  Genocidal Speech?

Andrea Tantaros said all members of Islam need to have a "bullet to the head" and that's not only hate speech it's also genocidal speech.

ANDREA TANTAROS: 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. Its 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.
WTF?!?!?  "You solve it with a bullet to the head. Its the only thing these people understand." Andrea Tantarous wants to exterminate all members of Islam by putting a "bullet to the heads" of all members of Islam.

Definition:

Genocidal (noun): the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, religious, racial, political, or cultural group
You may be asking yourself: How the hell does Tantaros still have a job after saying that!!!???  

But the real question is: Is anyone surprised Fox News employs a person who wants to exterminate all members of a religion?

By her vile, genocidal comment, Andrea Tantaros is no different from ISIL who behead people who don't agree with their f'cked up ideology.  And, does this supporter of genocide against all Islams aware that one of the part owners of Fox News (her employer) is an Islamist? That's right, Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud, is part owner of Fox News and he is a member of Islam.

I wonder what Lewis Alcindor (aka Karem Abdul Jabbar) and Cassius Clay (aka Muhammad Ali) think of Fox News allowing genocidal speech from one of their hosts?

UPDATE: This from Andrea Tantaros' Wiki Profile

On AUG 20, 2014 on Fox's edition of “Outnumbered,” the hosts discussed ISIS’ beheading of journalist James Foley, and co-host Andrea Tantaros conflated the small group of extraordinarily violent rebels with all of Islam. Andrea Tantaros said "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."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
