MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): The New York Times put this out there, this tweet, let's put it up on the screen, and it says -- I just -- it says, "18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today, families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2,000 people died."
This is one of those things where you say "What is wrong with this picture?" If you had a big sharpie, what would you circle there to draw people's attention to?
JESSE WATTERS: I mean, I would cross the whole thing out and start over, because airplanes don't kill people, Muslim terrorists flying the airplanes do, and that's what happened.
I remember in the London terror attacks a few years ago where the Islamic terrorists drove vans into pedestrians, and The New York Times said that they were "van attacks." It goes back to the "Fort Hood is workplace violence," it goes back to "Benghazi was triggered by a video," and what [Rep. Ilhan] Omar said was that "some people did some things."
The left, and especially the media try to sanitize terrorism from Islam because they think it's going to cause Islamophobia. They think it's unfair to Islam and it's going to cause more Muslims to radicalize.
And ultimately, they want to de-emphasize the war on terror, and they want to fight other wars like the war on global warming.
