As the "morning happy-talk show that Ailes uses as one of his primary vehicles to inject his venom into the media bloodstream," it's not surprising that Fox & Friends would be part of Fox News' "echo chamber" for America's Islamophobic network whose newest cause célèbre is a documentary, done by the anti-Muslim Clarion Fund, a group that has done other movies praised by anti-Muslim activists. This film, "Honor Diaries" purports to show that domestic violence, in Islamic societies, derives from Islam itself. Because they have criticized the film, not so much for the content but for the obvious Islamophobic agenda behind it, the Muslim civil rights group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is now in Fox News' crosshairs and was the target of a vicious attack, by Megyn Kelly earlier this week. And now, Fox & Friends has jumped on board the hate filled propaganda bandwagon!
Yesterday, Elisabeth Hasselbeck welcomed "radical Islamophobe" and Brigitte Gabriel to the set. Gabriel, who sees "Islamic indoctrination everywhere," has been warmly welcomed on Fox on a number of occasions during which she fomented her conspiracies about how Islam wants world domination and accused the president of being a Muslim. The NY Times describes her "portrait of Islam" as "so thoroughly bent on destruction and domination that it is unrecognizable to those who study or practice the religion." So I mean who better to present a reasoned approach to yet another faux Fox controversy!!!!!
The title of the segment set the message for the patented Fox fear of radical Islam card: "Islamic Radicalism on the Rise." Elisabeth Hasselbeck reported on the "powerful new film that exposes the shocking violence against Islamic women in the name of honor." After playing video, from the film, Hasselbeck said "gosh" and got to the red meat: "CAIR is complaining of Islamophobia and convincing college campuses to cancel screenings of 'Honor Diaries but why would a group like CAIR, which claims to protect the civil rights of Muslims want to silence such a film." FACT CHECK - Only two cancellations have been documented at the Univ. of Illinois and the Univ. of Michigan. Hasselbeck didn't mention that students and faculty, at the U of Michigan postponed the film's screening over concerns about bias. While it is not clear why the U. of Illinois cancelled, anti-Islam websites are blaming CAIR.
She introduced "terror expert" Brigitte Gabriel and asked her "what is CAIR so afraid of?" Gabriel, a Lebanese Christian, asserted that violence toward women is "based in Sharia law" (a claim that deserved a rebuttal from an Islamic scholar but that's not how Fox & Friends roles) and proceeded to make claims based on Islamic documents. The chyron reinforced the anti-CAIR agitprop: "Film Under Fire, CAIR Slams Film for Describing Honor Killing." Gabriel accused CAIR of not wanting "the truth to come out." Hasselbeck said that Fox & Friends reached out to CAIR but they didn't respond. She asked Gabriel to respond to the CAIR representative who appeared on Kelly's show because "I'd love your reaction."
As the chyron read "Silencing the Truth, Why Would CAIR Not Want The Movie Showed," Hasselbeck read UN statistics on the number of honor killing and genital mutilation. She plaintively asked why CAIR doesn't want to "represent women" and why universities "don't want to protect women, globally." The chyron continued the agitprop: "Highlighting Horror, UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva Showed Film" (LOL, thought the right wing hated the UN!) Gabriel continued to rant about how "we must stand up for women's rights." As she spoke, the chyron identified the name of her book "They Must be Stopped." The rest of the title, "Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It" wasn't included. Because the satellite feed failed, the rest of her rant was garbled which, IMHO, is a word that seems to describe her thought processes.
Seriously, does Fox News really think that this Brigitte Gabriel is credible? That she is bashing CAIR for tolerance is a bit ironic, don't ya think?! If there are any questions about an agenda behind this movie, I think the aforementioned segment should dispel them.
But, as I pointed out, FoxNoise has many, MANY problems with certain “inconvenient truths” that exist within Christian denominations, especially Roman Catholicism, and the Beasts of Babylon who host the FoxNoise programs go out of their way to actually defend those Christian denominations.
Now, just go away. You don’t really want an answer to your “question.” You’ve already made up your (pea) brain and it’s to believe whatever sh#t you hear from FoxNoise. (If you didn’t already believe the FoxNoise crap, you wouldn’t have had to make that inane question. You would’ve already had your answer.)
These cafeteria Catholics prefer to protect pedophile priests than innocent young children who are victims of the molestation. The false prophets who run the corrupted Catholic church are connected to Nixon trainee Ailes.
These are the stories of pedophile priests in the Catholic church. Why is Fox “News” afraid to discuss this topic? Is the church paying them off? One Fox affiliate decided to expose the church’s dark secret.
This story Fox “News” refuse to talk about:
Why give viewership to a network that stays silent about pedophile priests?
Furthermore, dark trolls, perhaps the FoxNoise kkkrew need to heed the words of the guy they claim to be defending so often against the “evils” of the secular world before attacking another of the Abrahamic religions: “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:3-5 KJV)
By the way, what these FoxNoise ninnies fail to understand is that the BIBLE is rife with calls to beat (and even kill) women and even children who act uppity. (Certain punishments were doled out almost exclusively on women—such as adultery. It merely took the “word” of a few men, but no women, that a woman had engaged in sex outside of marriage, for which the penalty was death. A man could only be punished with death IF actually caught in the act. You call that fair? Funny how things like that don’t make it into the anti-Muslim rhetoric of these right-wingers.) What these “holy books” do is to reflect the SOCIETIES that existed when they were written down. The Old Testament (aka the Tanakh—the Hebrew Bible) reflects Bronze Age Hebrew society. The New Testament reflects 1st Century Palestine, with its Greco-Roman influence on the Jews living there. The Qur’an reflects 6th/7th Century Arabian society.
