The Stupidity that is Fox News

Standard

Last night, I was at the gym and I decided to turn the channel to Fox News to see if they would mention Bengazi, since ithe whole issue has now turned out to be a total fraud.

I could not stomach it long enough to get a reasonable sample. I watched  Sean Hannity and Chris Christy ranting about the refugees from Syria. In all seriousness they said that people that lived under Sharia Law could not fit into the US.

I can see why the morons that watch that show for “news” have such a distorted reality. Syria has a mixture of European legal systems, but it is, basically, French Law.

Few Muslim countries use Sharia Law for their criminal justice system and a huge number don’t use it at all. For instance, it is only used in certain areas of Indonesia. I haven’t checked carefully but looking at the map of who uses it it looks to me as if the majority of Muslim people do not use it at all.

The equation that Muslim equals Sharia Law that they push on Fox News is simply wrong.
