Liberals launched an all-out campaign to shut down Fox News.
The left organized boycott campaigns to try and force Fox News to fire Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham.
And now all hell is breaking loose because Fox News took this Trump-supporting host off the air.
Judge Jeanine Pirro is one of Fox News’ most popular primetime hosts.
Pirro hosts “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on Saturday nights and is a strong supporter of President Trump.
That makes her a target for the left.
Liberals want to cleanse the media of all Trump supporters so that the only framing on the day’s events Americans know about are the anti-Trump lies and propaganda promoted by fake news outlets like CNN.
So liberals seized on the comments Pirro made about controversial freshmen Democrat Ilhan Omar and smeared Pirro as an “Islamophobe.”
Pirro had questioned if Omar’s adherence to Islamic doctrine was the cause of her anti-Semitic views.
“Think about this, she’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democratic Party, so if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? 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?” Pirro asked.
Liberals pretended to be outraged.
They howled about Pirro deploying the same “dual loyalty” that she attacked Omar for spewing about Jewish Americans.
It was all lies.
But Fox News buckled in the face of the fake outrage anyways.
First, they issued a statement condemning Pirro’s remarks.
“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” a Fox News statement read. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”
That did not satisfy the mob.
So Fox News took an even more drastic step.
The network suspended Pirro for two weeks.
Conservatives could not believe Fox News caved to the likes of CNN and other Democrat Party activists.
They know that the liberal mob will now feel even more emboldened to escalate their campaigns to bully conservative voices off the air.
President Trump knows this as well.
And he implored Fox News to tune out the liberal protests and stand strongly behind their hosts.
President Trump wrote, “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…. ….to the people that got you there. Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine. Your competitors are jealous – they all want what you’ve got – NUMBER ONE. Don’t hand it to them on a silver platter. They can’t beat you, you can only beat yourselves!”
Trump understands that the liberals want to destroy Fox News.
But since left-wing news can’t beat Fox in the ratings game, they need a different approach.
The only way Fox News can fall from their perch – as Trump pointed out – is to alienate their audience by catering to liberal outrage mobs.
Left-wing activists aren’t trying to take only certain Fox News hosts off the air.
They want the entire network off the air. Period. Full stop.
