DAILYKENN.com -- "Judge" Jeanine Pirro, the daughter of Lebanese parents, was pulled from Fox News after noting the obvious: Rep. Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar wears a hijab in compliance with Islamic law "which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution."
Pirro framed the observation as a question, stopping short of a direct accusation
Her show was apparently suspended; at least temporarily. It appears Fox News is condescending to pro-Islamic sentiment in the days after an over-the-top patriot shot up a mosque in New Zealand, killing at least fifty Muslims.
Donald Trump voiced his support for Pirro, telling the network to bring her back.
Pirro later emphatically asserted that she did not call Omar anti-American as accused. However, sharia law is the epitome of anti-Americanism and adherents to the ideology should be identified as traitors who embrace a world view that is a treasonous to American traditional values.
Ignored by the media are the 881 people of color who were killed by Islamic hate groups in February, 2019. Another 369 people of color were killed by Islamic hate groups the first 15 days of March, 2019. 494 people of color were injured.

We assume the show was pulled due to pressure from advertisers who were, in turn, pressured by far-left activists.

During "Media Buzz," Howard Kurtz addressed the fact that "Justice with Judge Jeanine" did not air Saturday night, one week after the network condemned her comments about Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar.
"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," Kurtz said during Sunday's broadcast. "Pirro’s remarks, which were unfortunate, sparked a furor."
Kurtz noted that Omar, one of two Muslim women serving in Congress, has drawn criticism for comments viewed as anti-Semitic. The "Media Buzz" host reiterated Pirro's remarks:
“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?”
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.”
Shortly thereafter, Omar sent a tweet thanking Fox News.
Pirro also posted her own statement, saying: “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.”
