SEAN HANNITY (HOST): We're going to get into this whole Facebook murder raping live Facebook videos that are going out there because it's getting insane, later in the program. You know, it raises a lot of questions, but how do you possibly determine -- well, we're going to allow Facebook Live for this person and not for that person. Now I happen to be of the school that I want every American to understand the nature of evil.
And if you can handle it, it actually would be a good thing in my opinion, to watch how evil ISIS is, so you fully understand and comprehend what they are capable of, because then I think you're more likely to want to engage and win the war against evil in our time. That's why I want people to see it.
Now, there are other people that say, "Hannity, why would you want Americans to have access, children may be able to see it." Well, have you ever seen any of the games that kids play for crying out loud? Unbelievable. Unbelievable.
