Fox News Facing HUGE Backlash and Boycott After Firing Judge Jeanine Pirro!
This last week, Fox News let Judge Jeanine Pirro go after CAIR complained about remarks she made about Sharia law on her show and now a Boycott has gone viral, with social media ablaze with frustration over the move.
I see a lot of items in social media with a huge network, and I have seriously not seen anything like it. My feed is full of boycott messages towards Fox News.
I rarely get political emails from friends. I received over 20 the last few days. This is the last straw for most of my connections.
The following is comment she made on her show. It was directed at (D) Minn. Congresswoman Omar.
“Is Rep. Omar’s adherence to the Islamic doctrine an indication of her adherence to Sharia Law, which is antithetical to the US Constitution”?
Fox News has been on shaky ground for a few years with its base of support. Will this finally hit their pocketbook?
After Fox News scheduled a rerun to air instead of her show on Saturday, Pirro even received support from President Donald Trump, who urged the network to “bring back” her show.
Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox …..

Pirro’s top-rated show covers American politics and the Middle East. She discussed the firestorm over Omar’s anti-Israel rhetoric which many American commentators said bordered on overt antisemitism.
On her March 9 show, Pirro blasted Omar for questioning the loyalty of American Jews to the United States by rhetorically asking if her Muslim faith means she is more loyal to Sharia law than the US constitution.
Fox News soon distanced itself from her comments, saying they did not reflect their views. On Saturday, it bumped her show in favor of a rerun of a documentary. Fox News stated on Monday it’s not commenting on internal scheduling matters.
Pirro responded to criticism of her comment stating, “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 Americans today.”
One of the many letters being circulated is the following. Feel free to use to address Fox News on this attack on the 1st Amendment:
We urge you to immediately call or email Fox and tell them how you feel….

To Whom it may Concern:
Too bad your network has taken a turn to the left. As conservatives, my husband and I can no longer watch your station. Your condemnation and subsequent suspension of Judge Jeanine Pirro, because of her remarks concerning Congresswoman Iihan Omar, is the last straw. Omar is a deeply offensive person and has made numerous anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements before and after being elected to Congress. Yet, Congress has refused to condemn her directly….they passed a resolution condemning ALL hatred…not specifically directed at her. That is not enough…..
Now, Fox has decided to suspend Judge Jeanine’s show for her comments about the Congresswoman’s possible adherence to Sharia Law. There is a concerted effort by the left, to rid Fox of all Trump supporters, and the more conservative commentators such as Tucker, Hannity, Laura Ingram, and Judge Jeanine. You allow people like Chris Wallace, Judge Napolitano, and Shepard Smith to continually bash President Trump.
This week’s Chris Wallace show was as critical of President Trump as you can get. He demanded that the President make a speech condemning Islamophobia and supporting Muslims. This was particularly offensive to Jews and Christians since he never called for a speech against anti-Semitism or anti Christianity, which has reached epidemic proportions here and around the world.
Since Rupert Murdock left the station to the care of his 2 sons, Fox has continued to move to the left.
We have no choice now, but to stop watching and supporting your network. Go tell CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, and MSNBC to be fair and balanced before you criticize Fox. Fox was the only station we watched. But not anymore. We will get our news from the internet instead, unless of course, you bring back the Judge!!
