Ingraham: "I'm not necessarily saying we judge an entire faith," but "why is it incumbent upon us to take this risk with our population?"

LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): This kept being repeated, by the way, on television where individuals who want to, again, write this off as a one-off, were saying, "You can never tell how someone is going to be self-radicalized, so we can't judge an entire faith." Well, I'm not necessarily saying we judge an entire faith, because this is radicalization we're talking about. However, however, because you cannot tell in the era of the internet who is going to be radicalized down the road, why is it incumbent upon us to take this risk with our population?

Why must we take the risk, knowing that we can't tell if an Islamic individual is going to be radicalized? I know you'll say, "Well Methodists can be radicalized. We have Oklahoma City, we had Las Vegas." Yeah, we have enough problems on our hands. We don't need to bring in more problems.
