Christian Bale Calls Moses A Terrorist & Fox News Loses It

"In an interview with ABC’s Nightline, Christian Bale described his Exodus: Gods and Kings character Moses as a “freedom fighter” and a “terrorist” against the slaveholding Egyptian empire.

Enter Fox & Friends with a segment ridiculing the actor’s comments part of their regular “Fight for Faith” segment (normally reserved for stories on the persecution of Christians and/or Todd Starnes).

“[He was] absolutely seen as a freedom fighter,” Bale said. “A terrorist, in terms of the Egyptian empire. What would happen to Moses if he arrived today? Drones would turn out after him, right?”

“He certainly wasn’t thinking about drones,” Father Jonathan Morris reacted Tuesday morning on Fox. The priest attempted to rationalize Bale’s thoughts, noting that the actor likely meant to describe Mose’s aggressive tactics in freeing the Hebrew slaves."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
