Jeanine Pirro gets torched for launching insanely Islamophobic attack against Rep. Ilhan Omar


Fox News host Jeanine Pirro is under tremendous fire over an offensive Islamophobic attack she launched against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Saturday night in an effort to smear her as an anti-Semite.

Republicans have been desperately targeting Omar ever since she rightfully questioned Israel’s influence over Congress. And many Democrats fell for it by joining the GOP in the attacks.

During her show this weekend, Pirro went even further by attacking Omar’s religion.

“Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested,” she said. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Here’s the video via Twitter.

It’s wrong to accuse Omar of being anti-Semitic when she agrees that Israel has the right to exist and has not attacked Jews in any way. But Pirro clearly is an Islamophobe who discriminates against Muslims.

Twitter users, including many conservatives, immediately responded by bashing Pirro’s hate and reminded her that her own religion of Catholicism includes adherents who wear religious head-wear.

Not once has Omar targeted the Jewish religion. She has merely criticized the pro-Israel lobby for having too much influence over Congress and American foreign policy. That’s a legitimate criticism, and one that she also has about Saudi Arabia.

But what Pirro is doing is the exact definition of hate and religious bigotry. She owes Omar, the nation and Muslim around the globe an apology, and if she won’t do it, Fox should show her the door.
