Scott Walker: Islamic State Is Like A Virus 'That Takes Out Your Whole Computer'

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) compared the Islamic State, the terrorist group sometimes referred to as ISIS or ISIL, to a computer virus in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Thursday.

"You got to take them out entirely," Walker said of the Islamic State. "They are like a virus in your computer that takes out your whole computer. If you don't weed it out you're just gonna be back at it again more and more."

While speaking at the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference earlier on Thursday, Walker said he is prepared to take on the threat of the Islamic State thanks to his experience undermining labor unions in Wisconsin.

"If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world," Walker said.

The governor later clarified his comments, telling the Wisconsin State Journal, "I'm just pointing out the closest thing I have to handling this difficult situation is the 100,000 protesters I had to deal with."

"You all will misconstrue things the way you see fit," Walker said. "That's the closest thing I have in terms of handling a difficult situation, not that there’s any parallel between the two."
