In case you didn’t know it, the old conservative guard at Fox News has left the building, leaving Murdoch’s liberal-leaning sons in charge. Thus the stern statement that was issued in response to Judge Jeanine Pirro’s opening remarks the other night in regards to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her observance of Sharia law.
“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network said in a statement. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.” If you live in a vacuum, you might find her comments offensive. I found them to be truthful and pretty much on target. The powers-that-be took some of those comments out of context as usual.
Pirro clapped back almost immediately: “I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American. My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution. I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”
Pirro did point out that Omar wears a hijab in observance of Sharia law. And in Islam, Sharia law takes precedence over the Constitution. Everything that Pirro said and queried was correct. As for questioning Omar’s allegiance to the United States, most of us do that on a daily if not hourly basis over her anti-Semitic and anti-American comments.
President Trump was right when he said the democrat party is now the anti-Israel party. Don’t forget Nancy, history has proven over and over when you appease to anti-Semitic sentiment, the worst happens. #OpeningStatement pic.twitter.com/vrnzhcu95o

The good judge pointed out that Omar’s religion shaped her view of Israel. Well, duh. Of course, it did. Omar makes it clear at every available opportunity that she does not support Israel and her vile statements against the Jewish state support her view.
“Think about this. She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat party… So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it: Omar wears a hijab,” Pirro said on her show. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” That’s a very fair question and one that should have been asked and addressed long ago. And similar questions should be asked of Democrats concerning their hatred of and disdain for the Constitution and America herself.
@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx. https://t.co/ZfKhRhlvM3

Pirro received widespread condemnation from both sides of the political aisle over her comments which just shows how much trouble we are in as a nation. One Fox News employee, network producer Hufsa Kamal, even publicly asked Pirro to “stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough.” Then stop Omar and others from spreading hatred of America and Israel and the questions will stop. But then again, Americans won’t even confront communists in their own government these days.
Pirro is not apologizing for her commentary and she shouldn’t. Omar is no role model in Congress. She’s the one spewing hate and now the left and many on the right are deflecting going after Pirro. Omar has sympathized with terrorists in the past and now she’s making her hatred for Jews crystal clear. I think it’s fair to ask more questions.
