Not a surprise. Rivera is a jihad apologist and will often use his position on Fox News to defend Islamic terrosim. However, the stupidity that Rivera spewed in this segment on Fox News was truly astonishing. Rivera practically whitewashed Iran’s history terror attacks against American military personnel, and in doing so reached a new low even for him.
“When was the last time Iranian terror killed an American” Rivera sneered. Rivera should ask that question to the families of the 241 American service members who were savagely killed in Beirut by Iran’s terror proxy Hezbollah. Perhaps Rivera should also ask that question to the families of the roughly 608 American soldiers who were killed in Iraq by Iran’s Shiite militias.
Just yesterday a top Iranian official bragged openly that it refrained from shooting down a U.S plane with 35 people in it. This is the government that Rivera defends on American television. To make matters even worse, is that after Rivera defended Iran’s terror regime he slandered John Bolton. “John Bolton is a radical U.S non-Mullah” said Rivera. Incredible.
Fox News is wrong to give Rivera a platform to spew his idiocy, lies, and pro-jihad propaganda, while banning courageous voices in defense of freedom and Americanism.
Hannity Warns Iran: ‘You’re Going to Get the Living Crap Bombed Out of You’
By Justin Baragona, Daily Beast, April 21, 2019:
Fox News host Sean Hannity kicked off his show Thursday night by promising President Trump would “bomb the hell of out Iran” for downing an American drone and lashing out at a fellow Fox News personality who advocated for restraint.
Shortly after Fox News’ Tucker Carlson—who has been privately advising the president against war with Iran—praised Trump for initially resisting calls for military action, Hannity took a completely different approach, insisting that Iran has essentially left Trump no choice.
“A strong message needs to be sent that a huge price will be paid if you take on the United State of America,” Hannity declared. “Simple peace through strength, and it works.”
Following his short monologue, the pro-Trump prime time star welcomed on Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera, who immediately noted that Iran claims they “have absolute, undeniable proof” that the drone they shot down was over territorial waters. Hannity, meanwhile, wanted to hear none of it.
“They shot an American drone out of the air, they are not getting away with it,” he huffed.
As Rivera attempted to make the point that Iran may not be in the wrong if the drone was indeed over their airspace, Hannity said Trump was “very clear” that the aircraft was over international waters before claiming Iran wants to wipe “the United States off the map” and is “fomenting terror.”
