The second best stupidity in this clip: At the beginning when Cupp is explaining to the professor what his book was about(!) she listed ‘Arab’ as one of the Abrahamic religions.
Can NYU revoke her Master of Arts with a concentration in Religious Studies from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study for showing such remarkable ignorance about religion?
The best stupidity in this clip: Cupp says an atheist should never be president because atheists are only 5% of the population but then insists that a Jew could be president, no problem!
Wikipedia says atheists+agnostics: 1.6%, Jews 1.2% of the US adult population.
I guess her graduate degree in religion didn’t include any actual facts like that.
May I suggest a project to address this issue? A timeline of all the political assassinations in the US in the past 10 or 20 years would be a very useful counter to the allegations that ‘both sides do it’.

I think we’ll find that all of them were either civilians targeted by right-wingers or right-wingers killed in police actions (Ruby Ridge and Waco) and that none of them will involve any left-wingers.
It’s a project worth doing.
