Jeanine Pirro’s Show Won’t Air on Fox Saturday After Remarks About Ilhan Omar by Joshua Caplan (Breitbart)
Hypocrisy: The theme of the day will be the rank hypocrisy of politicians and their all too willing sycophantic news media.
Fox is no exception!
For most of the previous week, the MSM has over and over again run cover for Congresswoman Omar and her unrepentant anti-Semitism. The Democrat Party and the MSM are so terrified that their coalition of the fringes will fall apart, they’ve jeopardized their most reliable donor class in America — Liberal Jews.
Why? The Left is so sure that they’ll prevent a defection of their donor sources, that to keep the illusion that they’re the party of inclusion, they’re willing to risk this awful dance with the devil. The word hubris comes to mind. Eventually, as we pointed out in a previous post (Trump Echoes Jexodus: ‘Jewish People are Leaving the Democratic Party’), American Jews will wake up to being fleeced by former friends while being escorted to the gallows. History, we hope, will not repeat itself.
Time and again, Omar, Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez have been called out for what could be seen as nothing less than blatant demonization and persecution of Israel and Jews in general across the US.
Does this matter? No, not if you’re a Democrat. (Or any Western Democracy’s version of the Left.)
So who’s the victim? Jeanine Pirro, the outspoken critic of what she correctly sees as the hypocrisy of the Left, calls them out with facts. Who is punished? Why she is of course! Yet again, the Left uses Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and George Orwell’s “1984” as their playbook. Alinsky and his direct disciples (click on links!), Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton would be pleased, Orwell would not.
Disney acquired the lion’s share of Fox in December of 2017. The young Murdoch sons have a clearly different view on being part of the “in crowd” than their Fox-News-founding father, Rupert Murdoch. What remains of “news” in the journalistic world will slowly but surely leave what was actually once the middle of the road. The left has pulled their constituents that far off the center. Fox will inevitably now — as a news corporation under the aegis of Disney — move further and further to the left.
Disney’s Leftist Credentials: Top 5 Companies Owned by Disney (DIS) The once “family friendly” entertainment giant has made the leap. Have you seen the ABC news in the USA? Virulently anti Trump. Have you seen the recent Star Wars franchise films? Counter cultural and implied political statements galore. Have you watched ESPN? They of the famous, “take a knee” promoting that America is racist? Need I say more? Well yes, it needs to be said and shown. This attack and its capitulation may be more orchestrated than the paranoia it engenders calls for, but you be the judge (I suppose the pun is intended).
The Big Three and the lesser known pundits of Fox: Many readers are aware of the opinion shows on Fox News starring Tucker Carlson (Tucker Carlson Tonight), Sean Hannity (The Sean Hannity Show), and Laura Ingraham’s (The Ingraham Angle), but their Saturday shows featuring Jesse Waters (Waters World), Greg Gutfeld (The Greg Gutfeld Show), Ex-pat Brit, Steve Hilton (The Next Revolution) and Jeanine Pirro’s (Justice with Jeanine) are lesser known. Perhaps the most brilliant amongst them is Mark Levins’ (Life Liberty and Levin). If Levin did an hour of punditry on Fox rather than his interview style show, the Left would come after him with everything they’ve got. Over the years they’ve tried as he has one of the most popular syndicated talk radio shows, but he’s too smart for them and literally “Out Foxed” the Lefts attempt at bringing him down.
The Left has repeatedly tried and failed to take down Carlson, Hannity and Ingraham, so now their attention will be directed at the somewhat lesser known, but potentially easier targets. They succeeded in tempering Judge Andrew Napolitano (a Fox News contributor) and now they’ve bigger fish to fry. For our readers interest, Napolitano has been completely vindicated in follow up investigations. Trump was surveilled. Whether you want to call it “wire tapped” or not, the deep state indeed via FISA warrant abuse, illegally surveilled Trump and his associates.
On to Judge Jeanine Pirro: Pirro is a a former US Federal prosecutor and was a no nonsense Judge. She “calls them as she see them”, a line she uses frequently on her show.
So What Did She Say?
“Think about 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?”
The first sentence is a statement of irrefutable fact. The second, an opinion based on the fact. Something for debate and discussion? Not if you’ve made your bed with the “intersectional” devil. For those of you not familiar with the term “intersectionality”, here is an excerpt from the wiki page on it:
The term intersectionality was coined by Black feminist scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989. ”Intersectionality“ represents an analytic framework that attempts to identify how interlocking systems of power impact those who are most marginalized in society.Intersectionality considers that various forms of social stratification, such as class, race, sexual orientation, age, religion, creed, disabilityand gender, do not exist separately from each other but are woven together. While the theory began as an exploration of the oppression of women of color within society, today the analysis is potentially applied to all social categories, including social identities usually seen as dominant when considered independently.
In her own defense against her own network:
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.
The network released a separate statement from Pirro, who said her intent was not to suggests Muslims could not be loyal to the U.S. “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. 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,” said the conservative host. “I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”
In a nutshell: Call out the Left and their acolytes and YOU’RE the bigot. Call the Left out for their blatant bigotry and YOU’RE the bigot. In other words, “Orange Man Bad” is their political philosophy and anyone seen on the side of Donald Trump is to be destroyed. You’re not just wrong, you’re a bad person. How dare you!
This isn’t even a zero sum game: It’s worse. It’s the classic, “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”.
With Fox News’ current line up, we’ll see at least a counter weight to the Left. How long can it be that either by attrition, retirement or some unforeseen incident (As happened to Bill O’Reilly being “Me Too’ed” out of a job, before the news is all “Doublespeak” and “Newspeak”? I suspect we of the realist camp are in for a very bumpy ride.
Judge Jeanine will likely be back soon, but she’s received a warning from the new bosses in town. It doesn’t bode well for Western media and its future.
