Fox News Analyst: ‘Extreme Left Won’t Be Happy Until We Give Terrorists Food Stamps’

In an era of rare bipartisanship, President Obama’s drone program is unique in at least one, major way: Republicans actively and consistently support it. What is not unique: Fox News analysts’ endless capacity for generating moronic soundbites. The latest comes from Ralph Peters, the network’s resident “strategic analyst,” brought aboard The O’Reilly Factor Monday night to comment on reports that the U.S. had killed al Qaeda’s second in command, Abu Zaid al-Kuwaiti.

“The inevitable blowback isn’t from Pakistan, they’re not making noise about this one,” Peters told host Bill O’Reilly. “The blowback is always from the extreme left in the United States that won’t be happy until we give terrorists food stamps.”

Both Peters and O’Reilly agreed, however, that Obama “deserves credit” for the approximately 2,000 alleged terrorists killed by the drone program, and on its continued need in the future.

This is hardly the first time Peters’ hyperbolic excess has emerged on Fox News. Commenting on the attack in Benghazi, and Obama’s “indecisive, fearful” response, Peters said, “in this part of the world, the only thing these radical Islamist fanatics understand is brute force. They kill four of ours, you kill 400 of theirs. Nothing else works. … When our people are killed, you kill them in large numbers.” For a collection of Peters’ more outrageous quotes, head over to Media Matters’  “A History of Inflammatory Rhetoric.”

    Were his parents with him? Surely such nonsense was spewed by a juvenile.

  2. Lynda says:

    I know that hyperbole can be so much fun, but this gentlemen is off the rails or maybe his meds. Such an asinine remark should not go unchallenged, but he a Foxer after all.

  3. It’s called Fox News because it’s all Charlie Foxtrot…

  4. Jim Lou says:

    It is becoming banal. It should be expected that FOX would spout banalities. So what else is new?

  5. Fox won’t be happy,until “all” are working for peasant wages,except them…

  6. nobsartist says:

    Its funny that the entertainment station that supported the president that was in bed with terrorists feels that way about food stamps.

    We really will not be satisfied until fox supporters are no longer relevant and last November, they were kicked down that path.

  7. frida says:

    Is there anyone who is taking what Fox News say seriously. I do wonder who interview these people for the job? They all have same brain. No one, I mean no one shows can think differently from others.

  8. Only the Tea Party, the Taliban, the forces of the anti-Christ, and sadists watch FOX and listen to morons like Ralph Peters.

    • James says:

      And who do you watch,Rachel Madcow or that confused Cristine Matthews who gets a tingling sensation running down his leg every time he she hears Obama speak.

  9. howa4x says:

    I’m shocked and appalled that Fox a network held to the highest standards of fair and balanced journalism could say such a thing
    Just kidding

    This ‘human being’ is nothing more than a disgustingly Islamophobic, murderous, anti-Semitic, Anti-Israel psychopath!!!! He’s an abomination, both morally and intellectually!

  14. ObozoMustGo says:

    Why is it so shocking that you leftist freaks would want to put terrorists on food stamps? After all, at some point you’re gonna run out of new Americans and illegal aliens to put on food stamps at the rate you’re going right now. Besides, Obozo has been giving terrorists heavy weapons in Libya and Syria for a long time now paid for by American taxpayers and Chinese buyers of US Treasury bonds. So why not feed them off the American taxpayer, as well? You leftist freaks seem to think there’s a bottomless pit of money, anyway.

    Have a nice day!

    • WhutHeSaid says:

      Why is it that you bigoted redneck yahoos who suck up all the government assistance from Liberal states are always whining about food stamps and welfare? For the love of God: Get a good education, work hard, clean up those nasty old cheeseburgers from the floor of your pickup, and some day you may even grow enough IQ points to consider leaving the ‘Party Of Stupid’.

      • Hillbilly says:

        You are insulting rednecks when you call must go one. A real red neck is a one that works in the mines and works their rear ends off to make a living for their family. The name red neck came from the red bandannas that the miners wore to keep their collars of their shirts from getting so dirty and to cover their mouth and nose when the coal dust was heavy in the air. I don’t know who first started using the word red neck as an insult but I don’t appreciate that it is being used as an insult since some of my relatives were the first rednecks in the Country. As for Obozomust go he is more of a sewer rat than anything else.

        • awakenaustin says:

          Redneck refers to having your neck burned by the sun. After awhile it is pretty permanently red. It was always a term of derision used by better off more educated Southerners to identify their less well off, less educated, manual laboring cousins. Like a lot of terms of derision identifying groups of people we are probably better off not using it.

        • WhutHeSaid says:

          Trust me, I know more about rednecks than I ever wanted to know. I believe the full term I used was ‘bigoted redneck yahoo’. Where I grew up, a ‘redneck’ was also a person who was ignorant and/or violent. The term was also used as a verb, where to ‘redneck’ or ‘neck’ on somebody was equivalent to the term ‘snitch’.

          My apologies to any snitches who may be offended.

    • Jesse Fell says:

      The federal deficit has declined every year since 2009. Obama has not greatly expanded federal spending or programs, and if he is able to get us out of Afghanistan, we will realize some really big savings. So why do Obama’s critics keep saying that he is spending us to the poorhouse, expanding programs, etc. etc? Because they have fallen in love with their own sound bits, which are comforting and can be grasped with thought.

      • ObozoMustGo says:

        Jess… you must have just fell off the turnip truck, or you’re smoking crack. There is no other way to explain how stupid you look when you write such nonsense. Obozo’s annual spending deficits have been averaging about$1.5 TRILLION per year. The largest deficit ever in a budget prior to Obozo was near $500 billion under the spendaholic Bush. Obozo passed a nearly Trillion dollar so-called “stimulus package” in Feb. 2009 that he has since baselined into all spending since then. For you to have a straight face when you type such nonsense is not believable.

        Go back to your crack pipe, son.

        Have a nice day, and remain oblivious!

        • Lynda says:

          You need a little help with your figures. Here’s the correct info from the OBM Historical Table-Summary of Surpluses/Deficits from 1930 – 2017 dated Feb 13, 2012.

          Obama deficits .. Bush deficits
          2013 $901 billion.. 2009 $1,413 trillion
          2012 $ 1,089 trillion.. 2008 $ 459 billion
          2011 $ 1,300 trillion.. 2007 $ 161 billion
          2010 $ 1,293 trillion

          The projection for 2017 is $612 billion which is projected to be 3% of GDP, which is far better that the 10% figure at the height of the Great Recession.

          The 2012 fiscal year deficit fell to $1.1 trillion from $1.3 the year earlier. The gap in government receipts and government spending – about 7% of economic output in fiscal 2012, down from 8.7% in fiscal 2011. The shrinking deficit was a result of both higher tax receipts and lower government spending. As the economy grew stronger government receipts climbed 6.4%. Also outlays dropped $61 billion year-over-year because of falling military spending on Afghanistan and Iraq.

          Keep it real.

          • ObozoMustGo says:

            Hey Lynda! How are you? Long time, no chat. I was thinking of you the other day. Don’t remember why or what topic it was. But I was. I hope you are well.

            Re: the numbers you posted. You did not read my post carefully enough. I wrote that the largest deficit ever IN A BUDGET was near $500B. What you are missing is that a BUDGET is actually a bill that is passed in Congress and then signed by the President… a process completely unknown to Obozo. This was intentional so that he could keep blaming his spending on Bush. But back to the topic at hand. You see, the 2008-2009 budget was passed long before the Sept. 1 date on which the budget year started. So it could NOT have included either TARP or the so-called “stimulus package” that Obozo passed in 2009, and which was added to the2009-2009 spending. By the way, Obozo voted FOR TARP and of course promoted and signed the so-called “simulus package”, but I suppose it’s rather convenient for you lefties to leave out those facts, eh? What I figured.

            Finally, if you actually believe that the deficit will be $612B in 2017, I will let you know that I am a bridge salesman. I have many fine bridges to sell. Please let me know which one you are interested in and I will sell it to you for cheap. OK? 🙂

            BTW… Obozo’s very own budget projections predict National Debt wil be between $20TRILLION and $22TRILLION by the time he’s done raping America. Is he still going to blame that on Bush?????? Hmmmmm…. you and I know the answer to that one, Lynda. Cowards never take responsibility for their own action. Obozo will blame the Republicans in Congress. You know it, I know it. Everyone knows it. He can’t take responsibility to save his life.

            Nice chatting with you again, Lynda. I wish you well.

            Have a nice day!

      Bozo I thought you were going to be less nasty. Was your replay to grammysue a lie. I know that you never respond to direct questioning of your nonfactual statements. All you ever do is call someone a name and spout statements you get from listening to Glenn Beck or are you Glenn Beck. I know you don’t have the balls to put your name to these statements. keep your inane and irrelevant quotes coming, they are always go for a laugh.

I have many people on here with whom I am friendly and some I am quite fond of. Perhaps one day you and I may find somethings to like about one another. I am always open to most, but a few on here are clear asses, regardless of political views.

        And I do respond to questioning of my statements all the time, just not to morons, race baiters, and clearly wacko socialists. No time for them.

        Glad you enjoy my quotes. Many people do.

    By all means let’s continue this game of ‘whack-a-mole” in the middle east, ad infinitum. Meanwhile, let’s also keep reducing the Dept of State’s budget–you know, like Congress reduced the amount of $$ for embassy security and are now blaming everyone else for an attack. America’s reputation abroad is looked upon with favor for our humanitarian efforts, and loathed for our perceived heavy handed imperialist behavior. Isn’t it more logical to put the $$ where we do the most good and generate good will? Maybe people will stop attacking us then. Otherwise, we are trying to kill the many-headed hydra. Cut off one head, and 2 grow back. When we went to war in Afghanistan 11 years ago, all those 10 year old boys are now grown men who are probably terrorists, because they were terrorized as little boys.

        <—–Original Message—–

    • FredAppell says:

      I am not a huge fan of Obama but you can’t criticize him for taking down Dictators without criticizing Bush for the same thing. Saddam was secular too and he used to be our guy in the Mideast until he attacked Kuwait. You also can’t except the fact that whether we like it or not, Morsi won in a Democratically run election and he is now under siege by his own people for trying to usurp total power. There seems to be 2 things going on here and those things are the truth and what you perceive as the truth. I would rather see America dislodge itself from the Middle East completely but because of geopolitical reasons, that will never ever happen. By the way, please try to stay clear of conspiracy theories because it ruins your credibility.

      • mahatmacoatmabag says:

        FresAppel, Bush was an Idiot, a Nebisch, a Neer do well, unlike Obama who is a muslim by virtue of his muslim father , early indoctrinaion into the faith in a muslim school in Indonesia & became a dedicated Marxist as a young man & has been groomed by his mentors, including KGB Master Spy George Soros, for his role of the Destroyer of American Prosperity , Freedom & Leadership of the Free World.

        As for Morsi being Democraticaly Elected, I would remind so was Adolf Hitler & the Nazis. Once in power Hitler gave himself Dicatorial Powers & ruled by Decree, just as Morsi is now doing. Because we have not learnt from history, the bad part repeats itself. The Muslim Brotherhood as much in common with the Nazis & were pre-war allies, in fact they are still the publishers & distributors of the Arabic translation of Mein Kampf, the best selling non-Arabic book in the muslim world.

        • FredAppell says:

          I understand where you’re coming from about Hitler & the Nazi’s but the conditions on the ground in Germany were much different than conditions in the Middle East today. First off, there weren’t any international monitors watching what was going on in Germany and there should have been. Second, there was no 24 hr. news cycle like we have today. Third and perhaps the most important aspect is that there wasn’t any internet because I assure you if there was, Hitler may never have come to power. As I stated in my first post to you, Morsi isn’t likely to succeed in his power grab. Egypt could be in for a civil war if Morsi doesn’t back down. Look at what is going on all over the region and you tell me if any Dictator actually stands a chance. This is all possible due to the internet. Your comment about Obama being a Muslim isn’t concerning to me because I don’t care what religion he is. My parents were Christian by birth, does that make me Christian by virtue because I assure you, I abhor any and all religion. I don’t believe in any religious values at all. Besides, I thought the Constitution guarantees freedom of all religions, not just the ones that you agree with. As far as Obama being a Marxist goes, you may be right but before you condemn the man for his politics, you should go to some of the real Socialist sights and see what they are saying about his politics. I have, and they don’t like him because they feel he is a Capitalist with some domestic Socialist tendencies. I may end up being wrong in the long term but I feel that if you are only getting your information from FOX or some conspiracy nut like Alex Jones than you aren’t getting the whole picture. I made that very mistake at first several years ago and finally after a while I had to walk away. I am not picking on you nor singling you out for humiliation, just simply offering you another point of view. I hope you have yourself a great day.

          • mahatmacoatmabag says:

            FredAppell, firstly don’t go by what socialist websites say about Obama, those websites are of no importance, its what the left wing controlled main media ( CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NYT etc ) puts out which determines the public agenda & they are solidly 100% Team Obamas cheerleaders ( As Lenin said ‘ the press are usefull idiots’ ) .

            The conditions in the Mid East today bear a some remarkable similarities to what happened in Germany in the 30’s – an out of touch ruling elite, an impovrished population easily swayed by powerfull oration to mass violence, well armed militaries eager to interfere in politics, extremisted bigoted racial idelogies with clearly defined scapegoats ie principaly the Jews, liberal minded people & in the case of the Arabs – Christians too. Islam & Nazism are compatable, since both are anti-democratic violent extremist ideologies, one of the few things Bush was right about was in coining the term Islamo-Fascism.

            BTW who is Alex Jones never seen him on Fox , unlike the Marxist pal of Obama , Van Jones.

    Once again, for all the idiots who keep talking about the “far left” or the “extreme left,” here’s a news flash: Other than a few individuals and tiny groups, all completely marginalized, there is no Left in America, near or far. The most “extreme” and “far” left examples these idiots keep coming up with are Barack Obama and Bill Clinton (and whoever next becomes a Democratic presidential nominee), moderate conservatives all.
    The only extremes in America are the extremely wealthy, the extremely mean, the extremely stupid, the extremely ignorant, and the extremely unhinged: in other words, the current Republican party.

  18. Ah yes, Fox news, the far right, like er, oh yes, like the Nazi’s.

  19. FredAppell says:

    As I have stated over and over again on this thread, just because Obama was re-elected is no reason to believe that Washington is going to become a place where politicians suddenly see the error of their ways. The problem with today’s politicians is they all have different agenda’s that don’t include any of us. FOX has different agenda’s that don’t include us and neither does MSNBC or any of the personalities that work for those brands. It is all self serving and though I don’t think there is any overt conspiracy at play here, I do believe that it is destroying us though, thus making it easier to control us.

  23. ObozoMustGo says:

    By the way…. did any of you useful idiots actually watch the video clip above? The headline and the article are absolutely misleading and attempts to create something out of nothing. It’s clear that Col. Peters is actually complimenting Obozo on the killer drone program. His comment about you leftist freaks not being happy until you give food stamps to terrorists is an obvious exaggeration and joke to make a point about how far left you leftist freaks really are. Clearly, anyone with half a brain can see that. Apparently, possessing even half a brain is a rarity amongst the leftist freak set.

    Have a nice day!

The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.
