Armstrong Williams, radio host and former senior adviser to the presidential campaign of Dr. Ben Carson, joined host Stephen K. Bannon on Monday morning’s edition of Breitbart News Daily to discuss Europe’s response to terrorism after the Brussels bombing and declaring the European Union failed to protect Europeans from Muslim terrorists.
One of the most demoralizing effects of terrorism is the sense that the government is powerless to stop violence being committed against its’ own people. Several Belgian cabinet ministers – including the interior and justice ministers – offered their resignation in the wake of the Brussels attacks. The Pakistani government has been under similar pressure from a population that has grown numb with fear and almost become resigned to senseless violence being a fact of public life. But the media also has a role to play in the proliferation of terrorism. Those in the media should exhibit just as much empathy for innocent lives lost in Lahore or Abidjan as they do for lives lost in Paris or Brussels. Failing to do so sends a message to the terrorists that some lives matter more than others, and sets up a high stakes game of cat and mouse that just cannot be won in the conventional manner.
WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) — A political contributor to Sinclair Broadcast Group, who is currently in Paris, described the environment there in the aftermath of terrorist attacks in Brussels Tuesday morning as "just insanity, it's total chaos."
