Fans torched Fox News for suspending opinion host Judge Jeanine Pirro and pulling her show off the air this weekend after Pirro condemned sharia law and the anti-Semitic rants of Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
FNC host Howard Kurtz observed on Media Buzz: “A Fox spokesperson says, ‘We are not commenting on internal scheduling matters.’ And yet — without some public explanation of why the show was pulled — it certainly looks like a suspension.”
Fox Scolded Jeanine Pirro for Rebuking Sharia Law
In her OPINION monologue last week, Judge Jeanine said:
“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 Islamist doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law — which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?
We are witnessing the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe, where incidents are up 74% in the last year alone in France. And people use the common tropes of Jews with too much money and influence. We all know how it starts. Hate is hate. Hate leads to violence.”
POTUS : Don’t Back Down, Double Down
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump backed Judge Jeanine on Twitter:
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 …..

….must stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die! Stay true….

Islam and Sharia Are the Left’s Sacred Cows
As BizPac Review reported, Fox News rebuked Judge Jeanine amid left-wing hysteria after Pirro rebuked sharia law and Ilhan Omar’s steady stream of anti-Semitic and anti-American comments.
At that time, Fox News said: “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.”
Islam and sharia law are the Left’s sacred cows. Therefore, you’re not allowed to criticize them or even mention radical Islam’s undisputed links to terrorism.
Many FNC fans were outraged by Fox News’ wimpy refusal to stand by one of its most popular on-air personalities.
They asked why Fox News scolded an OPINION HOST for expressing her opinions when left-wing CNN activists masquerading as “journalists” call President Trump and anyone associated with him anti-Semitic and anti-American 24 hours a day.
Ilhan Omar Gloats After Fox Rebuked Pirro
Shortly after Fox News scolded Judge Jeanine, Muslim Democrat Ilhan Omar reacted by gloating on Twitter.

‘Sharia Is Incompatible With the Constitution’
Many Fox News viewers were disgusted at the network’s weak-kneed capitulation to leftist whiners.
“I don’t get why Fox News is condemning Judge Jeanine for saying Sharia Law is incompatible with the Constitution. It’s not.”
I don't get why FoxNews is condemning Judge Jeanine for saying Sharia Law is incompatible with the Constitution. I mean, it's not.

Speak Bill! Stop being wimps @DNC! You could have used Fox News as a platform to expose bias. GOP will take any exposure.
