Earlier this week, the conservative website Campus Reform asked Harvard University students if the United States or ISIS posed a greater threat to world peace.
Many students stated that the U.S. was a bigger threat to world peace, helped create ISIS and added to unrest in the Middle East.
Caleb Bonham, the Editor-in-Chief of Campus Reform, appeared on "Fox and Friends" to express his disgust, which was echoed by Fox News co-host Brian Kilmeade, noted RawStory.com (video below).
Kilmeade claimed that “people are stunned” after watching the students give their (historically correct) answers.
"I was shocked to see that student after student, as we continued our interviews, found ways to blame America,” stated Bonham.
“This is sort of a fad that sweeping the nation,” added Bonham. “Students think it’s highbrow to be able to somehow blame America for the world’s ills.”
“They’re hearing situation after situation where America is the root of all evil,” Bonham claimed. “And I really expected every student to look at me, roll their eyes, and say, ‘Come on, ISIS is the problem here.’ But what I find funny about our video, and it’s sad, my video proves that students are listening to what they’re learning in class and that’s concerning.”
Kilmeade added that the video of the students' answers was “disturbing, but necessary.”
In reality, the U.S. has killed far more people around the world than ISIS. The liberation of Iraq by the U.S. took the lives of half a million people by 2013, noted The Huffington Post.
Author and award-winning journalist Jeremy Scahill recently explained to Democracy Now how the leadership of ISIS is made up of former members of Saddam Hussein's military (250,000 soldiers), which was disbanded by President Bush after the invasion of Iraq (video below).
"The United States, through its policies, created the very threat that it claims to be fighting now, and in continuing this policy, what President Obama is doing is embracing the very lies that made the Cheney-Bush Iraq War possible," stated Scahill.
Kilmeade recently said that U.S. military leaders "should put their stars down and walk out" on President Obama, which would destroy the U.S. chain of command, noted MediaMatters.org.
