Search Google today for pedestrians killed by automobiles in a terrorist attack, and top results will be all about France. On any other day, results would be about Israel. What happened in Nice, France occurs regularly in Israel, and it's coming to American soon. Why? Because radicalized Islamists want to kill anyone who doesn't believe in their extreme ideology. But don't tell that to progressive liberals --- and don't try to convince them we're on the same team.
"Yesterday, Buck Sexton was on CNN, and I mean blood will shoot out of your eyes," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.
Sexton, a commentator on TheBlaze and former CIA analyst joined The Glenn Beck Program to discuss his CNN interview following the horrific attack on Bastille Day in Nice.
"Buck is a former CIA agent who used to brief the president, and Buck, I saw you last night on CNN, and I have to tell you, I didn't know my blood pressure could go up that high," Glenn said.
Sexton had a heated exchange with a Georgia State University professor during the CNN segment. The professor took exception to Sexton's assertion that terrorists are "coming after us."
According to the professor's logic, the fact that radical Islamists have killed other Muslims means we should ignore the threat to non-Muslims.
PROFESSOR: And I do disagree with Mr. Sexton, because the fact is, and I'll say this to you, Buck, directly, the vast majority of ISIS's victims are Muslim, not us, not the West.
BUCK: I'm fully aware of that. I mean, no one disputes that.
PROFESSOR: Well, then you keep saying they're coming after us. They're not coming after us more than they're coming after each other.
BUCK: No, I was referring to the Islamic state which very clearly through its external operations arm --- which has been at work, by the way, for a number of years now, along with al-Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula, which until recently was considered the most virulent and deadly of the jihadist terrorist organizations for this kind of external plotting --- they are continuing to do this. Of course they're killing Muslims. They're killing Muslims in Turkey and Saudi Arabia and Iraq, and I've seen some of the handiwork they've done in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.
PROFESSOR: You said they're coming after us. They're not coming after us.
BUCK: Yes! They are, in fact, coming after us...
PROFESSOR: But they're mostly going after each other.
BUCK: When I say "us" I'm referring to America and Europe and the West and all peaceful Muslims and everyone around the world who doesn't believe that strapping a suicide vest on --- because you're disaffected, because you have some believe that somehow this will take you to a place of paradise and virgins, whatever the case may be --- everybody who isn't on that team is on my team. This notion you have in your head that when I say "us" I'm referring to, what, Republican Americans? I was in the military inside the CIA...
PROFESSOR: No, you're saying "us" as Americans.
BUCK: ...I was working with foreign allies all over the world to try and stop these kinds of attacks. You're making an implication that's preposterous, and I have to be honest with you, after this sort of an attack happens, there is this knee-jerk reaction that happens that we see from people who are center to left-of-center, constantly trying to wrap all this around the bad rhetoric of people who want to speak openly and honestly about terrorism. We're just trying to empower the moderates from within Muslim societies, we're trying to empower our allies in countries that we do work with --- inside the Muslim world and outside the Muslim world --- to stop people from getting mowed down at a celebration of a National holiday. That's it.
"I can't take it anymore. This is a professor from Georgia State University. Again, a professor from a university. If this doesn't stop, we --- and I mean all those who don't think that we should strap a suicide vest on to our chest --- we're all dead. We're all dead. Do we understand that yet? This is coming to America soon," Glenn said.
Sexton agreed, adding more perspective to the CNN interview.
"Glenn, I have to tell you, the context for that one exchange is also relevant. We had just finished one segment where I had listened to people who are terror experts, you know, whatever that may mean. I'll leave it to others as to how expert people are based on what they say," Sexton said.
The so-called experts, still searching for a motive in the Nice attack, questioned France's ability to assimilate Muslims.
"We have now over 80 people mowed down and killed. How much questioning do we have to do about whether this was a jihadist attack? They're going to, sort of, pretend that they can't tell a motive --- even if they find a signed confession or a motive video somewhere, we're still gonna be told we don't know what the motive is. But all I heard about from these so-called terror experts was, 'Well, France does a bad job of assimilating Muslim minorities,'" Sexton said.
"Oh, shut up," Glenn said.
Naturally, according to progressive talking heads, inflammatory, right-wing rhetoric also incited the violence in France.
"It's because Donald Trump tweets something you're going to strap on a suicide vest or drive a truck into a crowd of people --- men, women and children --- and mow them down by dozens at a time?" Sexton asked, rhetorically.
