‘America, like it or not, has a responsibility and a moral authority to act’

Chris Matthews: U.S. Being ‘Morally Humiliated’ in Fight Against ISIS (Mediaite)

The ISIS slaughter of Egyptian Christians movedChris Matthews to say tonight that the United States is being “morally humiliated” by this terrorist group. Matthews said the clear goal of capturing the beheadings on video is to stir anger, and admitted the U.S. really has no choice but to act.

After all, he said, doing nothing and moving on with our lives without taking strong action is not an option, because “the alternative is too sick, too un-American, too inhuman.”

Matthews also said that we can’t “act like America… is not being morally humiliated, because it is.” And America, he concluded, like it or not, has a responsibility and a moral authority to act.
