Bill O'Reilly took his turn piling onto President Obama over the Ottawa shooting this week, and pretending that he just wants to coddle the Islamic terrorists during his Talking Points Memo this Thursday night. He also used the occasion to proclaim that our number one problem in the world is "Muslim Terrorism."

Not hunger, or poverty, or war, or income disparity, or disease, or the multitude of other problems that most people could rattle off pretty quickly if you asked them what real problems we have in the world that are making most of the world's population along with a good number of our fellow American citizens' lives miserable. Nope. The Islamic terrorists are coming to get you. Be afraid! Be very afraid!

As we've mentioned before, this is what we get to look forward to at minimum until the midterm elections get here. The yappers on Faux "news" have got to keep their audience worked into a frenzy from now until the election because they know fear will drive them to the polls.

Here's more on his rant from Fox's blog: O'Reilly: 'Muslim Terrorism Is Now World's No. 1 Problem':

In tonight’s Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly charged the U.S. and the rest of the world with “doing the bare minimum against ISIS.”

He noted that the two suspects in murders in Canada this week were Muslim converts, and said Canada is “under assault by Muslim terrorists.”

Yet O’Reilly said Obama has gone out of his way to de-emphasize jihadist activity. In the liberal community, he added, there is sympathy for “good Muslims.”

“But right now, we need some perspective. Every sane person knows not all believers of Islam are violent people. However, there are millions of Muslims – millions – who believe that harming non-Muslims is acceptable behavior.”

O’Reilly said, “Muslim terrorism is now the world’s number one problem.”

“The Factor” host said that the world doesn’t want to deal with the problem, and he asked: what will it take to wake up the world?

“The answer to that question is a weapon of mass destruction used by Muslim terrorists,” he said.

O’Reilly said we can expect more Muslim killers, and said this won’t stop until the world unites against terrorism.

And O'Reilly's not going to stop until we've got Republicans in charge of our government again and rewarded for their obstruction and refusal to govern.
