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 New York 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!!!!!
