Unbelievable: Democrat Congresswoman Suggests Beheaded Journalists Brought It Upon Themselves

Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) said that the recent beheadings of American journalists does not justify air strikes by the U.S., even going so far as to suggest the atrocities were committed because “we were on their ground.”

Johnson would add that Americans “need to be careful where they are.”

The comments made during an interview seem to suggest that American reporters James Foley and Steven Sotloff had themselves to blame for their brutal executions.

Watch …

  Johnson tells a reporter that “they (ISIS) did not attack in the U.S.” and that she “will not support unilateral strikes.” Which then leads to this exchange:

Reporter:  Well, they did kill two Americans.

Johnson:  Yes. Reporter:  So America, to a lot of people that means we’ve been attacked. Do you see it that way?

Johnson:  Not necessarily. We were on their ground. It was not in the U.S. We need to protect Americans wherever they are. But Americans also need to be careful where they are.”

Really? Going with the ‘they had it coming’ argument? The entire interview provided by NBCDFW can be seen below (relevant portion at about 2:45) …

    There we go again !!!! BLAME THE VICTIM !!

  2. Josette says:

    According to her logic … if something happens to her during some politics related event… it’s her fault? She should not have been a politician (Even though it’s would be a blessing…) we don’t wish people ill fate if they happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Where do these idiots come from ?

  3. Eugene says:

    Have all the democrats gone crazy and what kind of people vote these idiots into office. NOTICE TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. We are going to have to forget about a political party and vote for the people has a little sense to them. This poor lady look so confused, I actually felt sorry for her.

  4. Morrie says:

    And there you have it folks, another Demo-rat Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) opens mouth and stupidity comes out of it. I pray that people wake up by this November and start to vote these idiots out of office if there time is up, because if we don’t this beautiful country will be forever lost.

  5. David says:

    Her Logic : So we can cut the heads off of anyone from any country if they are on our land ????

    Sounds reasonable. How about all the illegals here in the US now, Bernice ?

    1. Josette says:

      Pretty good idea … that would solve the border problem but would be messy !

  6. Glenn says:

    If they beheaded this moron they’d find her head was missing a brain.

  7. Mary Alice says:

    WHAT an ignoramus..according to HER theory..if anyone from THAT country comes here.., we can behead them..going to a foreign country entitles them to our HEAD? And these people get elected over and over again..by Whom?? people that are Bigger Ignorami?..Does she even KNOW what Journalists , Photojournalists have contributed for all of these many ,many years wars and social upheavals around the world..They have kept us INFORMED at a tremendous cost..of Ward, Famines, Devastation, Massacres, Dictators, Disease, Dud ,,none of these She is aware of..apparently..And they do it at a tremendous COST as did these courageous YOUNG men and many before them..in The Revolutionary War, Civil, WW! , WW!!, Korea Viet Nam, and all the places we have been and lost souls since..God Bless them and SHAME on you, you IDIOT! Resign due to Ignorance!

  8. Nika says:

    It appears that Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson believes the killing of innocent people in foreign countries is OK as long as it remains there outside the USA? Then what is Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson doing about illegals coming into the United States committing violence and murdering here in the U.S.? What does Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson feel about America sending BILLIONS to these same foreign countries that are killing innocent people and flooding the USA with drugs and violence? What does Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson feel about her own party with President Obama leading the way to support and allow all this funding these countries bringing further devastation and destruction into the USA in many forms? As Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson speaks we clearly see and hear the ongoing Democratic platform, thinking and actions being taken. As a whole Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson your party, causes and reasoning are the underlying foundation that allows for the continuation of our severe decline and why the USA is in such dire need for change heading in a new direction with a new President and leadership. If it all walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, smells like a duck then IT’S A DUCK Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. The DEMOCRATIC DUCKS have to be removed so America can breath, build, prosper and represent once again!!! The sooner the better!!!

  9. Al says:

    the Congress Woman is correct! They had no business being there! America does not ‘own’ the world!!

    1. Josette says:

      That is good… your answer should enable us to deal with the border issue in no time …

  10. Jeff says:

    ‘…because we are on their ground’…And Michael Brown was shot because he was attaching a police officer.
    There is something seriously wrong with the minds of most democrats.

  11. Mike says:

    put her in the same home as pelosi

    1. Cary says:

      You are an evil man!

  12. Joe says:

    She’s not the idiot. The idiots are the people who voted for her. You all need to realize that LIBERALISUM IS A MENTAL DISORDOR. Think before you vote and do a little research on the person your voting for.

  13. Kathy says:

    Someone needs to record history for the books….that’s all they were doing…usually the media has some exception….they know they put themselves in harms way….to get hurt…shot….but….beheaded…don’t think so…they are vile evil people!!! And need to be wiped off the face of the earth!

    1. Shirley says:

      This is typical of our government now days I wonder if she would feel the same if it was a member of her family.. These people need kicked out of our white house

  14. Kathy says:

    What a blooming idiot!!!! Must be a radical muslim herself!

  15. John A. says:

    Did not realize Texas had so many stupid people, representing them.

  16. Karen says:

    What an idiot. Just another obama butt kisser.

  17. Kevin says:

    1) It’s against the LAW for Obama to act without congress 2.) We ARE under attack by ISIS! Lay off the cough syrup you doped up cow.

  18. Donna says:

    Wonder if she would have felt differently if they were black Americans.

  19. Jimmy says:

    I can’t believe anyone like that has any say in anything to do with the safety of our country. That lady has a head full of rocks.

  20. John says:

    these mental defectives surely are elected by mental patients.

  21. Mark says:

    Send her to Syria as a reporter for the congressional daily and see how long she keeps her head

  22. Stephen says:

    This is what you get when you elect idiots. She’s more worried about food stamps and other entitlements.

  23. Victoria says:

    Really? You are clueless much like our Golfer-in-Chief. You sit in fancy offices with guards. I do hope you realize that ISIS is all over the world now. Will it take one of your family members being beheaded to wake you idiots up? Oblammers speech was a bunch of mumbo jumbo giving clues to the only allies he has and those are Muslims. NATO for the most part does not trust him and now 78% of American’s do not support him. If he can trade 5 of the worst Taliban leaders, secretly, for one deserter that got 6 of our Military killed, he needs to man up and take the war to them.

  24. Ruth says:

    Sounds like Obama coached her, defending muslims as usual…

    With her criteria of judgment does that mean if we kill muslims, blacks, french, etc that are in America it is justifiable

  25. Dexter says:

    Maybe the next beheading will be of a Negro like say Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX)? Then what will she say? “Nothing” I will be willing to wager!

    1. Ruth says:

      She would probably yell prejudice from hell to breakfast..

  26. Proud says:

    Typical Democrap mentality! What the hell is she doing here in Texas!

  27. Just goes to show that you cant fix STUPID!

    1. Jimmy says:

      couldn’t have said it better myself! and beauty is skin deep,but STUPID IS TO THE BONE!What an IDIOT! Why shouldn’t we be upset when our ALLIES citizens are there because get beheaded! No theocracy has a right to behead any other cultural differences,Now a History lesson! For those who have a short memory
