It’s shocking, but a Muslim from Tennessee appears to be the one behind Judge Jeanine’s ouster at Fox News.
Here’s what the judge said in her opening statement on March 9 that caused the uproar: “Omar wears the 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?”
Sounds like a fair question of the Minnesota represenative, Ilhan Omar, who was the one who made anti Semitic remarks, upsetting many in the Democrat party and all Republicans in Congress. I don’t even think there was an organic groundswell of anger against Judge Jeanine; evidently, it was most upsetting to one person, Hufsa Kamal, who is a producer for Bret Baier’s show at Fox News. She describes herself as “Pakistani-American. England born, Tennessee raised. I help make TV happen on @FoxNews.”
She voiced her disgust in this tweet, “@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx. https://t.co/ZfKhRhlvM3

In the week after that, Fox decided to pull the Judge’s show, supposedly for two weeks. Fox 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.”
Hufsa has attacked many conservatives on Twitter, in particular Michelle Malkin, Candace Owens, Dan Bongino and Charlie Kirk.
She has recently suspended her Twitter account.
I suppose most of us agree with this comment, posted at theconservativetreehouse:
What Pirro stated was a fact. Why are Muslims & Islam off-limits? A Muslim producer at Fox was offended by Pirro’s comments. A real Muslim-American should have no problem with Pirro Making a factual statement regarding Ilhan Omar’s hijab being a symbol of Sharia Law. It is, and Sharia Law is the antithesis of what the American Constitution represents. It has no place in Congress… especially when Omar continuously makes hateful, anti-Semitic comments. A Real Muslim- American understands that USA is a Free society, & that it’s important to have a free dialogue on the issues of Omar’s anti-Semitism, and Sharia Law. It is Free Speech. Fox is placating to a Producer at Fox who is Sharia compliant. Of course, they are also allowing the Left, who jumped all over this, to bully & silence them.
We’re in a very dangerous place with freedom of speech. Already people are reluctant to express their opinions or even wear a MAGA hat. It shouldn’t be that way, but it is getting worse.
