Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin gave her advice on how to defeat ISIS during an interview with Pat Robertson's CBN show "The 700 Club” on Dec. 3 (video below).
"The 700 Club” co-host Wendy Griffith asked the former half-term Republican governor of Alaska: “What would you do to defeat ISIS?” notes RightWingWatch.
“You have to quit being this namby-pamby, kind of milquetoast, ‘Let’s discuss things with them, let’s reach out and try to understand them.’ No, they’re the enemy, they’re evil,” Palin stated.
The U.S. has never offered to "discuss things with" ISIS, rather, the Obama administration has been bombing the terrorist group since 2014, noted The Guardian.
Palin then said the U.S. should declare war on ISIS, even though ISIS is not a country.
Griffith asked Palin about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s declaration that the U.S. was not at war with Islam.
Griffith failed to mention that Clinton was paraphrasing the words of former President George W. Bush when she said in November: "I don't think we're at war with Islam. I don't think we're at war with all Muslims. I think we're at war with jihadists," reported Talking Points Memo.
“It’s so naive,” Palin told Griffith. "It's a scary kind of naive that anyone would believe that the radical Islamic movement, jihad, that it could be understood, and leading to some kind of embracing of it, no, we have to be honest about it, it has to be stopped.”
In reality, Clinton said, "We've got to reach out to Muslim countries, we've got to have them be part of our coalition" in regard to fighting jihadists.
