Fox News’ Eric Bolling Says Obama Administration ‘Answers To The Quran First,’ Clarifies Remarks (VIDEO)

 

Eric Bolling walked back his words about the Obama administration on Monday’s “The Five.”

The roundtable was discussing the White House’s response to the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, which was initially believed to have been spurred by an anti-Islam film. Filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was recently questionedover potential probation violations.

On Monday, co-host Greg Gutfield blasted what he saw as an apology from the White House. Bolling pulled up a picture of Nakoula with probation officials, and went one step further. “America changed at that moment,” he said. “To use what is being called a flimsy ploy to bring this guy in for questioning proves that the Obama administration, through all this appeasement and apologizing, answers to the Quran first and to the Constitution second.”

Co-host Bob Beckel was outraged. “That’s just an outrageous statement. Even for you, that’s an outrageous statement,” he exclaimed, slamming his fist on the table. “That is the most — of all the things you’ve said, and I love you, brother, but that’s the most outrageous statement I’ve ever heard.”

Bolling clarified his remarks later on in the “One More Thing” segment, saying, “What I meant was, rather than appeasing the Muslims, [President Obama] should worry about free speech first. That’s it. I’m done with, I don’t want to hear about it.”

  1. I agree with the man in one way. The United States Government nor the U.S Media should be projecting any images that seem to apologise for the video. Nor should they project any images that seem to portray the United States punishing people involved in the video. This man’s legal problems not withstanding, if these murdering fanatics even think they are changing policy within the United States a lot more people will be killed and more property will be burned. They need to understand that their protests while violent are impotent in the larger scheme of things.

  2. “Quran, ran ran ran. I get Quran…”

  3. TOOL

  4. He answers to his wife first, like every other husband. :)

  5. wat a bunch of bs…. the obama administration does nothing for the Muslim people like all the other presidents… Clinton was probably the only president to care about minorities

  6. Gosh!! Don’t these people get sick of repeating themselves over ‘n over-even though they’ve been prooven wrong over ‘n over?:-/

  7. Yesterday’s news.

  8. Is that worse than answering to the Bible? Or answering to some other holy book? The Qu’raan has some good stuff in there.

    I answer to the 2nd D&D Edition Player’s Handbook, personally.

  9. I love “The Five”, patters like this are significant for the show. You can’t take them too seriously, and always with a grain of salt. Besides, Bob Beckel is always there to be a good counterpart. :)

  10. Good for Beckel.

  11. What’s in the Quran that anyone needs to worry about? We listen to hype and are told what we’re supposed to like and what we’re supposed to hate without really knowing a damned thing about it.

  12. AirWick Bowling is a moron. And idiot.

  13. Haha

  14. The Sad reality is that they answer first to Israel. It’s amazing watching a candidates in an election pander to a foreign nation.

  15. Time for fact check

  16. he has been a blow hard his whole life…comical at best

  17. Yet, when White, Male, Christian politicians talk about “putting the Bible first”, their poll numbers get double digit bumps among their base……We need freedom FROM religion

  18. He is misrepresentating with an agenda, he should be fired.

  19. These muslims that are protesting are less than 1% of all the muslims in the world. There trouble makers without jobs. The movie was made with one mans mindset. Add it up.

  20. Eric Bolling answers to Rupert Murdoc first when he should be answering to truth and journalistic integrity!

  21. Silly dummy

  22. How hilarious is he…

  23. Hahahahha…. If only that were true!

  24. seems like Bolling answers to the voices in his head

  25. whatta dick!

  26. Wahat a Yutz!

  27. Really Mashallah!

  28. Really Mashallah!

  29. To/ Ms. S. Ali, How very brave you are to speak out against our President, with regards to what he has and has not done for Muslim nations. Of course, you are sitting in the comfort and safety of the U.S., and not in some despot ruled Muslim country, where by now you would be in jail. …When you come into the light of reason , please tell us what You are doing for the plight of Women thru out the Muslim nations. … Mr. Obama has taken down leaders, the hideous creatures, that are terrorizing Arab and Muslim countries. He does everything he can to help free those who cherish freedom. And You have the gall to say he is no friend to the Muslim peoples. … We just lost some of our Diplomatic peoples, who went to Libya, lived in Libya and Died in Libya – all in the name of trying to make this country safe for its citizens. Instead of demanding More from our President,you should ask yourself just why the Muslim world is doing Less and Less for its citizens – look towards these leaders and ask yourself why things are getting worse. … Personally, I find your words to be self serving and irresponsible ; and that is an ugly combination.

  30. Oh, and one more thing … perhaps you would have the respect to spell our president’s name correctly – with a capitol O, as in Obama.

  34. Cynthia I actually do like him as a president he has done a lot for this country I agree , however, I feel he has done nothing for the Syrian people. They are a people who are suffering and being massacred daily. He also has not spoken about the Islamophobia going around and has ignored the recent hate attacks towards Muslims. Also he has not ended the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Troops are still in Afghanistan and innocent people are still being killed. I am sorry but I am disappointed that he has not addressed that problem. However, it is my opinion and I could be wrong.

  36. But compared to Romney he is an angel on earth!! lol

  38. also if you want to talk about Muslim leaders, the reason there is so much chaos in the middle east is due to the corrupt leaders who have been put there by American Support. Assad is not being massacred is because he is very pro Israel and a puppet to US and Israel . Bin laden got into Afghanistan because the US put him there to fight the Russians. The Saudi govern also has support from US they are “allies”. Pakistan new useless president..yes also put in power by Americans help. Saddam also got support from US in the past. All these leaders who are corrupt in the middle east are for one sole purpose to serve the USA. They do not care for their own people rather for money. They are all guilty of one thing money, even if it is at the expense of their people. The only people who are happy with their government is the people whose president cares about them, not about the other countries. And as an American I cannot judge leaders of other countries even if they claim to be the same as my religion (I could care less honestly about them) rather I would like to care about my President, the one I voted for.

  40. To/ Ms. Ail – Where did you get the idea that Mr. Obama is G-D. He is supposed to : stop the war in Syria, stop anti – Muslim hatred in America, stop hatred towards him for being ‘Muslim’ (as in , this is a Very bad thing), stop the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan . … You state that he ‘has not addressed the problem’ – try PROBLEMS! … And he is to also: run America, keep us monetarily solvent, keep the GOP from destroying women’s rights, keep the oil and coal companies from destroying the environment, keep our country safe from other nations, stop the Chinese with their false devaluation of their monies, etc., etc. Yikes !!! As we say – give this man a break. … And – – – the ‘corrupt leaders’ put there by our support – let’s see if you can place blame where it belongs, on the so-called ‘Royal’ families of Saudi Arabia,Jordan,Syria, etc. These regimes back each other up, cannot get along with each other, try and destroy each other, back terrorists groups, starve their own peoples, etc. And – you blame this on America ? …… We ALL want to be shown respect, and we all have to work very hard to get, and even harder to keep it. ……… How can you — blame the U.S. for not doing enough and then blame the U.S. for having gotten too involved ? This is useless … try to work for all the freedoms you can and against all those whom wish to take these away. We have to be vigilant – we have to do all we can to establish Democracies – only then can we even have a chance of making the world better for ALL the CHILDREN …

  42. To/ Ms. Ali – this conversation, I am sad to say, is going no where. …… You simply wish to put blame on the U.S. for all the corrupt leaders, all the corruption, all the horrors. ……… Well if that makes it easier to tolerate the intolerable treatment of others, then so be it. …… Perhaps, it will be left to others to help the helpless men, women and children, in the Middle East, that do not and cannot live in a Democracy ( unlike You) . Your ability to disengage yourself from these people is breathtaking. ……. And the Lie you speak of , that I am going to put to rest is the Vile idea that Assad family is pro-Israel. Oh yes, a country that has destroyed all the synagogues , exiled the once thriving Jewish community and then those that would not leave ( because it was their only home) – well those souls, they slaughtered. Oh, how wonderful it must have been to be a Syrian Jew under the Assad family …

  44. It’s not going anywhere because you’re not discussing the same thing.

  48. Cynthia,

    Nice bit of pipsqueekery! Overblown, insincere (yet self-righteous), ignorant, poorly focused ad hominem attacks delivered in a frantic, sputtering tone that tells the reader “I’m parroting the best I can, give me a break why dontcha?”

    You got it, Cynthia, you’ve certainly convinced me of whatever it was you think you were saying. Thank you, thank you.

  49. After learing how they paid back the USA for healping the Lybians it will be stupid to intervene in Syria.I am sure if the former leader of Lybia was alive that will never happen.These people{Muslims}cannot handle freedom they are not acustom to it ,they prefere to be slaves.A crowd protesting in Pakistan over the film shouted they are slaves of Muhammad.the last three letters of Muhammad is MAD you can work out the rest.

Have your say!
