Bob Beckel Attacks Moderate Muslims As 'Cowards' Following Kenyan Mall Attack

The Five's favorite Fox faux "liberal," Bob Beckel, decided to go on another rant and hold all Muslims accountable for the actions of some extremists in Kenya who attacked a shopping mall there. If that's the standard Beckel would like to set, I'd like to know when he is going to start holding all Christians accountable for the anti-abortion zealots among their ranks?

I'm assuming we'll get crickets from him on that front, but here he is ranting that all Muslims should be forced to weigh in on and have to denounce this attack, as though they're somehow responsible for it: The Five’s Beckel Loses It on Muslim-American ‘Cowards’ in Wake of Kenyan Mall Attack:

Greg Gutfeld may have been the one to open The Five’s Monday afternoon segment on this weekend’s brutal terror attack at a Kenyan shopping mall, but it was Bob Beckel who unleashed a furious rant against Muslim “cowards,” including those who live in America, who do not do more to speak out against this type of violence.

“You moderate Muslims out there, I know I’ve been on this thing for a long time,” Beckel said, “but the time has come for you to stand up and say something.” He took the opportunity to revive his calls to ban foreign Muslim students from entering the United States and prevent new mosques from being built.

“I repeat what I said before,” Beckel declared. “No Muslim students coming here with visas. No more mosques being build here until you stand up and denounce what’s happened in the name of your prophet. It is not what your prophet meant.” Referring to a question the attackers reportedly asked victims before killing them, he said, “I don’t know what his mother’s name is and I don’t care!”

“The time has come for Muslims in this country and for other people around the world to stand up and be counted,” Beckel said, summarizing his point. “If you can’t, you’re cowards.”

It was not an easy act to follow, with the other co-hosts not even attempting to approach Beckel’s rage level on this issue. Later, Beckel continued his plea with Muslim religious leaders to kick the “fanatical idiots” out of the faith altogether.
