Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Piece On Ilhan Omar That Will Never Air
Fox News host, Judge Jeanine Pirro is caught in the crossfire of the politically correct left’s agenda. It’s gotten so bad that the President himself has stepped in to advocate on her behalf.
Pirro is known for her sharp and opinionated segments where she dissects current events and for the most part, askes the questions regular folk want to know. In her latest, she ripped apart Ilhan Omar’s allegiance and bigoted views. Pirro posed a question to Democrats, ‘if you’re not anti-semitic why do you defend her?’. The piece was apparently too controversial for Fox. They banned the airing of the segment and verbally slapped Pirro for creating it.
“Omar wears a hijab which according to the Quran 33:59 tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”
Fox News released a statement the next day stating, “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.” A week later, when her show failed to air, the cable news outlet stated, “we’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters,” according to ABC News which added Fox declined to comment if and when Pirro’s show would return, Jerusalem Post reported.
President Trump took to Twitter to defend the host stating, “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 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.”
Omar released a statement, “apologizing” “unequivocally.” She wrote, “Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes.” Personally, I’m happy to accept her apology. Progressive American Muslims and Jews should be natural allies; our mutual future depends on deepening this country’s embattled commitment to multiethnic democracy. Prejudice helps bind the modern right together, but unchecked it can rip the left apart.
That looks more like a defense than an apology. Was she banned from Twitter for her anti-semitic comments? No. So why would fox ban the opposing side that so clearly wants to just question Omar’s agenda? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
