Fox doesn’t air Jeanine Pirro’s show Saturday because of her remarks about Ilhan Omar

In doing this to Pirro, Fox is validating the idea that there was something wrong with what she said. Yet the hijab is in many cases, if not most, indicative of adherence to Sharia, and Sharia does contradict Constitutional principles in numerous ways, including the denial of the freedom of speech and the denial of the equality of rights of women. So what is wrong with asking the question Pirro asked? It is increasingly taken for granted that it is “bigoted” and “Islamophobic” to utter the slightest critical word about Islam or about any Muslim individual or group. As this continues it will have numerous negative effects, including making it impossible to oppose jihad terror activity.

Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Pirro’s remarks came in response to Omar’s most recent antisemitic outburst, in which she suggested pro-Israel groups pressure members of Congress to pledge allegiance to a foreign country.

In a statement to Deadline, a Fox News spokesperson said the network would not comment on “internal scheduling matters.”

Fox News denounced Pirro’s comments last Sunday, saying in a statement: “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….
