“I’ll remind you, in Singapore they have no [drug] problem. Why? They hang them. They hang them,” O’Reilly offered, referring to a notoriously draconian capital punishment regime.
“OK, but we’re obviously not suggesting that as the answer,” Tarlov interrupted.
O’Reilly pressed on, clearly not disturbed by his suggestion of capitol punishment for low-level drug offenders: “I don’t know. I mean, look, Singapore at one time had the most pernicious opium problem you could possibly have, it destroyed their entire society. So they said, you know what, we’re not going to have this anymore. And that’s what they did, bingo, no drug problem.”
Ya know, it's funny how, for a certain segment of the population, whenever another country is doing something good for it people like providing health insurance or keeping lunatics from owning machine guns, we have absolutely nothing to learn from any other country because America America America!!! Greatest country on earth, no one can teach us anything.
But when a country is doing something horrific like chopping off the hands of thieves, or hanging people for the crime of wanting to feel good for a while, then suddenly, you know what? We could learn a thing or two from this bloodthirsty Medieval theocracy!
