On Saturday evening’s episode of “Watters’ World” on the Fox News Channel, a segment aired showing Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips interviewing college students to ask them what their thoughts are about terrorism. Their answers are unbelievably scary, and in some cases, stupid.
“Do you think we should be using the word ‘radical Islam’ in talking about ISIS, or do you think that term may be too offensive to use and could offend people too much?” Phillips asked.
“No, that’s definitely wrong,” one student said.
“It might be on the more offensive side,” another student said.
One student argued “radical Islamic terrorism” is inappropriate because a similar term hasn’t been used to define Christian terrorists in the United States.
“There’s been domestic terrorism with Christian groups, for example, and you don’t really call them, you don’t go around saying ‘radical Christianism’ or ‘radical capitalist,’ things like that, right,” the student said.
“Which attacks would those be?” Phillips asked the same student.
