ICYMI: Rubio Joins Fox News Sunday

May 5, 2024 | Press Releases

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Fox News Sunday with Shannon Bream to discuss a potential Rafah invasion, antisemitic riots on college campuses, and Democrats’ hypocrisy on abortion. Watch the full interview on YouTube and Rumble.

On Israel’s decision to potentially move into Rafah:

“It’s their war, and they have a right to fight it. [Hamas] are degenerate savages…. Everybody is saying: ‘Send in humanitarian aid. These poor people are starving.’ Well, that’s what they [Israel] tried to do, and these guys [Hamas] are launching mortar attacks against the humanitarian aid that’s coming in…. Israel is allowing [aid] in anyways, because they know they need to do it, but Hamas [is selling this stuff] in the marketplace…. 

“This is Israel’s war. We should basically say we are on the side of the people who were the victims on October 7th of a bunch of savages and lunatics who came across that border and massacred and killed and kidnapped and raped and took hostages back with them. These people need to be defeated. How is Israel supposed to coexist, to live side by side, next to these people? 

“They talk about displaced people. There are 80,000 Israelis right now that are displaced from the north…. I saw them. They are living in hotels. Their kids are going to school online and in conference rooms at hotels. They can’t go north because Hezbollah is attacking them in northern Israel….

“[The Israelis] are the good guys in this fight, and Hamas are the evil ones. And these terrible civilian casualties that are happening are because Hamas is using them as human shields.”

On Rubio’s proposal to revoke the visas of Hamas sympathizers:

“Joe Biden, very early on, should have said, as I asked him to do back in October: ‘If you’re in the streets of the United States, and you’re here as a visitor on a visa…, and you’re out there chanting on behalf of Hamas and Hezbollah and these terrorist groups…, we should revoke your visa. If you are here in this country as a visitor on a visa, and you are defacing statues of George Washington, ripping down American flags, and putting up Palestinian flags, you should have your visa revoked and eliminated.’ 

“[President Biden] should have been very clear about whose side we’re on from the very beginning. But look, there’s a bunch of major Democratic donors who are behind the groups that are funding all this. I saw the other day, I think it was in UCLA, thousands of dollars of plywood that they were using as barricades against the police.  

“They’re committing acts of violence, not just acts of antisemitism, acts of violence, of vandalism, threatening people. I saw another video of a Jewish student who had to shame the police into escorting him so that he could go into an area of the university where he had every right to be because of these zombies, these antisemitic left-wing nutcases that the president should have been very firm about. 

“That’s why everything in America is in chaos, from our border to our campuses, because we have a weak, feeble president who cannot communicate and refuses to take a strong line on this, because he’s afraid of people voting against him in November who support these crazy ideas.”

On Biden’s speech condemning the antisemitic protests across the country: 

“He gave a short speech off of notecards, seven days into this crisis. We should have heard from him from the very beginning. These are students from all over the country.  You know who’s not getting any coverage right now? The kids who paid $80,000 a year to go to these universities who can’t take finals, can’t use the library, can’t go to class, many of whom have dropped out of school. Who’s fighting for them? 

“Joe Biden should have spoken about them very early in this process. His failure to address this early on, and to make very clear whose side he was on, has just fed this and increased this. He should have been very clear and defined himself early on about this, and they’re not doing anything about it as far as I can see. I want to see if they put as many resources and time into investigating these people as they’ve investigated other people in the last couple of years.”

On Democrats’ extremism on abortion: 

“No one ever asked the vice president, Kamala Harris, or any Democrat, what restrictions do they support? Which abortions should not be allowed? They never tell you. Should someone be allowed to have an abortion on the day of birth? After birth? Past the point of viability? They will never tell you which abortions should not be allowed. They’re always demanding to know what exceptions you support, but they never tell you which restrictions they would support. 

“They are extremists. They believe abortion should be allowed at any time for any reason, paid for by taxpayers. No one ever asked Kamala Harris that. No one ever asked the Democrats that. They should. Someone should start asking them what their position is on that. Then we can define and decide, ‘What are the policy options here?’

“I’ve never viewed abortion as a political issue. I believe it is a moral issue. It is the conflict between two rights, a woman’s right to choose and an unborn human being’s right to live. And I err on the side of life, because without life, none of the other rights matter. There’s no right to speech. There’s no right to vote. There’s no right to do anything if you’re not alive. 

“We have to have laws that define how we protect human life. But these people will never tell you what abortion should not be allowed. They are extremists. They are radical extremists. It is journalistic malpractice for Kamala Harris to repeatedly be allowed to do interviews and never be asked: ‘Kamala Harris, what abortions should not be allowed in America? At which point is it too far and too bad?’”
