JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): I want to say something about Arab Americans and about the Muslim world -- I'm not going to hold your hand, even though I should, Dana. 

We -- and when I say we -- I mean, the West and western technology have created the Middle East. We made them rich. We got that oil out of the ground, our military protects all of these oil shipments flying around the world, making them rich. We fund their military. We respect their kings. We kill their terrorists. Okay? But we've had it. We've had it with them. 

Obama, Trump, now Biden have tried to get the heck out of that stupid desert. Just as we're about to get out, because we have this great balance of power we're arranging, these crazy Muslim fanatics come in and massacre over a thousand of our allies. And hold Jewish people hostage, hold Americans hostage. 

And so, if you're an Arab American in this country, and you rip down posters of Jewish hostages, American hostages -- no. No, no, no. Someone is going to get punched in the face. When you rip down posters of the hostages like that, this is -- absolutely not. And the New York Times, the second sentence, Greg, that I thought was even worse, "Whose suffering should command public attention and sympathy?"

So, what they've done is they've now made suffering a commodity. They'll put a price tag on emotional suffering. You know, is it the Jews? Is it Black teens? The Native Americans? The Palestinians? Who's suffered the most and he who suffered the most is allowed as you say a free punch. And so now they have justified violence to avenge suffering. And so now people are above the law. People are below the law and that's making everybody crazy because we can't live in a country like that. And I won't live in a country like that.
