Megyn Kelly is intelligent, quick on her feet, and knows how to aggressively challenge interviewees. Her mind is sharp and her tongue can be sharp. She will skewer anyone who cannot effectively defend his position.
She is terrific when she’s right and dangerous when she’s wrong.
And in her interview with Bobby Jindal the other night, she was dangerously wrong.
Jindal argued that we should restrict immigration to Muslims who want to kill us. Ms. Kelly was outraged. She said such a view, if you can believe it, was “controversial.”
She said, “Members of ISIS may be a different story, but just to say that if you are a radical Islamist or, more specifically, if you believe in Sharia law, then you won’t be allowed into the United States is controversial. Who decides how far into Sharia law you have to be? Who decides who’s a radical Islamist and who’s just an Islamist?”
In other words, Ms. Kelly’s position appears to be we are morally obligated to let people into this country whose worldview calls for our destruction, and there’s nothing we should do about that until they actually start blowing up or shooting innocent American infidels…
