    Bono: 'Send Amy Schumer and Chris Rock to fight Islamic State'


    U2 frontman Bono brought his star power to Capitol Hill on Tuesday as he called on members of Congress to take swift action to deal with the global refugee crisis and violent extremism.

    Before a Senate subcommittee, one of Bono's suggestions was to use comedy to fight extremist groups.

    "It's like, you speak violence, you speak their language. But you laugh at them when they are goose-stepping down the street and it takes away their power," he said.

    "So I am suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer and Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen, thank you."

    Bono drew a bleak picture as he described the flood of people fleeing their homes in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

    The human torrent threatens the very idea of European unity, he said, as he urged lawmakers to think of foreign aid as national security instead of charity.

    Wearing his trademark rose-tinted glasses, Bono said members of Congress need to confront an "existential threat" to Europe that hasn't been seen since the 1940s.

    Countries such as Poland and Hungary are moving to the right politically, a shift he described as a "hyper nationalism."

    Bono co-founded the One Campaign, an advocacy group that works to end poverty and preventable disease.

    How can they give some dopey singer a platform to spout this kind of drivel with everything else going on in this country?

    Headline starts out promising but then you realize this mongoloid is actually serious, and he believes the biggest problem is European countries reacting to the fact that their land and culture is getting overrun by a bunch of savages.

    That he would put that pig's name in the same sentence as Chris Rock tells you all you need to know about Bono.

    Many reasons, they're star fuckers, they're out of touch, they're paid off so as not to take any real action that could actually solve problems, because those causing problems are also providing the bribe money...

    Bono went to Africa and said "let's feed these skinny Africans, they're hungry." and was lauded a political and social genius.

    Those halls will only be hallowed when an atom bomb goes off, sweeping out every floor, and only leaving the skeleton frame...

    Woman? Check. Black? Check. Jew? Check.

    And they call Phil Anselmo a supremacist. Bono is essentially calling for these performers' deaths..
