Minnesota politician thanks Fox for condemning Jeanine Pirro

H10 pirro ilhan

Host Kate Bolduan said that the network had rebuked Pirro's remarks suggesting that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's hijab signaled disloyalty to the United States, but Stelter said it wasn't enough.

In a statement, the network said: "We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro's comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar". "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". Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law?

Esquire said on its website that it was bigoted and incorrect to imply that Omar's criticism of Israel must inevitably spring from her Muslim faith.

Jeanine Pirro, a legal pundit for the U.S. news channel, also accused the Somali-American congresswoman of being anti-Israel and a believer in sharia law, The Independent reported.

Omar has been in the news because of her own comments that some have judged to be anti-Semitic, leading to a debate over how Democrats should publicly address her views.

Fox News has on many previous occasions has tolerated Islamophobic and birther comments from its hosts and commentators.

She added: "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".

Fox News' chief executive, Suzanne Scott, had reportedly scolded producers of the network's shows past year, encouraging them to run a tighter ship in terms of incendiary comments.

Ms. Omar is a Somali-American and Muslim who wears a hijab in public. "Which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?"

"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", Omar said in a statement.

"We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy", said Omar in a joint statement with fellow Democratic Congressmen Rashida Tlaib and Andre Carson - all three of the Muslim members of the US Congress. "It's not a good one", he tweeted, referencing Omar's comments on Israel in which she said she shouldn't be "expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress".
