WOW!… Ted Turner: I Think It’s “Good” U.S. Troops are Killing Themselves (Video)

Ted Turner was on with Piers Morgan last night.
He said, “I think it’s good U.S. troops are killing themselves.”

CNN posted the transcript:

TURNER: It’s time to put war and conflict behind us and move on, and start acting like civilized, educated human beings.

MORGAN: You made the point to me in the break there, more American servicemen have –

TURNER: — are dying now from suicide over there than are dying in combat.

MORGAN: That’s shocking, isn’t it?

TURNER: Well, what — no, I think it’s — I think it’s good, because it’s so clear that we’re programmed and we’re born to love and help each other, not to kill each other, to destroy each other. That’s an aberration. That’s left over from hundreds of years ago. It’s time for to us start acting enlightened.

    He caught himself saying ‘terrific’. What a nasty waste of air. The suicides having nothing to do with being enlightened and everything to do with not being respected or supported by their own government.

    Hey Ted, could you please go over to the Middle East and explain your theory to Al Qaeda and the Taliban?

  • Robert

    Why someone who would say such a thing has any stature in society is beyond me.

  • RedStateGal

    Wow. Explain to me again why Ted and Jane aren’t together anymore. They seem made for each other.

    and P.S. Ted — soldiers DIED so you’d have the FREEDOM to run your crappy network.

    Why aren’t we using these HATE -FILLED words of the lib – Pro – Death (choice?) Turner against the liberal-progressives–and it is no even a mis – quote –

    The proof that there is no caring God when you see the likes of this scum being rich, successful, and evil.

  • Gaston

    This is the same person who found inspiration in Fidel Castro, preaching about peace and love between human beings.

    I wonder if the dictator also suggested him the name Communist News Network.

    Perhaps you should refresh your memory of Jesus temptations in the wilderness. You will recall that he was tempted by satan three different times and offered three different things to bow down and worship satan. One of those things was unending riches.

    CNN – The world according to Ted Turner
    MSNBC – The MS stands for Micro$oft. The world according to Bill Gates.

  • Chris W.

    I hope this story has legs. Love to see some advertisers tell Turner Networks to shove it up their ass.

  • Lars

    The suicides are likely due to a loss of meaning for the mission and lack of support all around.

  • owl

    Several others have already expressed my first thoughts……………….anyone have a problem understanding how Ted & Jane hooked up? Lowest of the low, scum met scum.

    There are no words to express my utter and absolute contempt for Turner. Can we please make this go viral so CNN is thrown in the gutter where it belongs?

    Ted Turner is an A-hole.

  • Since Teddy is so full of love and forgiveness maybe they could appoint him the next ambassador to Libya……it worked out so well for Stevens.

  • Joanne

    Turner thinks military members are committing suicide because they don’t like the ramifications and aftermath of living with killing the enemy, but maybe this isn’t why they are committing suicide. Maybe they are committing suicide because they’d rather be in control of their death rather than live with the fear of being killed everyday, and in no time has this been more apparent than in the time Obama and his rules of non-engagement have been in effect. Obama has blood on his hands.

    i think ted has a serious case of “the vapors”…did he actually give that billion to the u n that he promised to them10 years ago? imagine, these are friends of obama. give me bill clinton even…

    I read somewhere, some time ago, that traitor Jane Fonda wrote in her book that he
    and her were driving somewhere and Ted needed to make a stop to drop something off
    or pick something up he said, at any rate a 5-10 minute stop and then they would be on their way. Jane Fonda stayed in the car.

    She found out later that he only went to the office to have a quickie with the secretary.

    Apparently, he is a sex addict.

    Him and his communist ex wife are absolute, WHITE TRASH. Better watch it, Turner, life has a way of getting even with people like you.

  • too bad he never told his communists pals about that killing people thing being so 17th century.

  • AuntieMadder

    In his mind, the suicides prove he’s right and being right is the most important thing.

  • Contessa61

    Kumbaya…

    %99.9999 of the population would like peace. Unfortunately Ted, there is something out there called, ‘bad guys’.

    “It’s time for to us start acting enlightened.”

    But what about Muslims the world over who riot and kill at the behest of their religious leaders over “rumors” or less? Are you saying that they are somehow subhuman and incapable of acting “enlightened”, because it doesn’t seem like you’re holding them to the same standard as “us”, Ted?

  • Cv1

    Ted Turner has always been an odd person. He’s not playing with a full deck.

  • Flintstone F.

    Ted,

    We’re programmed for all sorts of behavior. Some people mutilate their women and force them to walk ten paces behind with their heads covered. And guess what Ted, they “care” just like you do.

    We should all just get along (because then thinking about stuff won’t give me a headache anymore).

    Irrefutable proof that $ does not = smarter than.

    Hitler thought it was terrific to rid the living of genetically inferior programmed people. These old eugenic death cults had their roots in America long before spreading to places like Germany. People like Ted also think it would be terrific to reduce the world population a 2-4 billion people…. clear up the environment and conserve resources for the more civilized elites of the master race.

  • ROMNEY WAR GOD

    Good points Joanne. Our fighting men and women need to confront real enemies, not some made-up enemies like Obambidaddy’s spurious Osama bin Whoever of the Week. OlDirtyBama is murdering our soldiers with his rules of non-engagement. Our Heroes in Uniform want to die with their boots on. Just ask them.
