Donald Trump Tells Bill O'Reilly He Wants to Kill the Families of Terrorists [WATCH]
Republican presidential candidate and real estate billionaire, Donald Trump, has had some ludicrous ideas in the past, but his most recent is a real doozy. Following the attacks in San Bernardino, California, Bill O'Reilly sat down with the GOP campaign runner and asked him what he would do to minimize civilian casualties. The Trump's response was to essentially kill the families of terrorists.
The specific quote, as provided by SunTimes is as follows: "You have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. When they say they don't care about their lives, you have to take out their families."
In what way, does doing something so barbaric, make us any better than the terrorists who are attacking innocent victims? This should have outraged Americans. Instead, Trump is leading in Republican polls by 20 points based on one CNN report. Why are people still supporting this man? Is it because after the San Bernardino terrorist attacks, Americans are so terrified they are willing to forget their moral integrity?
There was still at least one person willing to call Trump out. When confronted with Donald's homicidal idea, the executive director of the International Institute for Counterterrorism in Israel, Boaz Ganor, told CNN, "Any deliberate attacks aimed against civilians is a war crime, regardless if they are family members of terrorists or presidents or presidential candidates." Ganor then went on to say, "Adopting this policy is immoral and against the common liberal democratic values." So, at least there are still a few people left who are willing to call Trump out when he goes too far.
Ganor also said that he does not think that killing the families of terrorist would help to stop terrorist attacks from happening, but instead -- and possibly more importantly -- we would be compromising. "One of the most important pillars of counterterrorism: the differences of morality."
