“Good Friday”: In Jones Trial Coverage, FOX News Censors Koran Burning Video

By Debbie Schlussel

While broadcasting live footage, this morning, of Pastor Terry Jones’ trial regarding whether he can hold his planned protest in front of a Dearbornistan mosque, Detroit’s FOX News owned-and-operated FOX 2 News blacked out video that prosecutors showed of Jones burning a Koran.  This is an interesting double standard because the station has shown Bibles and U.S. flags being burned, and crosses in jars of urine, etc.  Why is it that they must shield the video of Jones burning the Koran?  Because they don’t want to offend Muslims, that’s why.  FOX News panders to Muslims, not Christians, not Jews, not Americans.  (The trial is ongoing as I write this.)  I already told you, earlier today, how the station’s dhimmi anchor, Huel Perkins, called the extremist imam from the mosque, Imam Hassan Qazwini, an imam “who preaches love and freedom,” an absolute lie.

Dhimmi FOX News Censors Out Koran-Burning Part of Pastor Terry Jones 1st Amendment Trial

In addition to that, what’s truly outrageous is that Jones’ trial to prevent his free exercise of his Constitutional First Amendment rights is ongoing right now in a Dearbornistan courtroom, less than three hours before his planned protest is to go on.  I’m not sure why, but Jones chose to represent himself, a big mistake.  I think he did this on purpose to be a martyr, so he can have the jury require he pay the bond for his planned protest, so that he won’t pay the bond, and so that he will get arrested and become an even bigger cause celebre.  A real lawyer would have probably immediately appealed the fact that there even is such a trial, all the way up to the Michigan Supreme Court or higher and likely would have won.  I’d have taken the case for free, and that’s what I would have done.  Now, less than three hours before the  planned event, it’s kinda too late.

That this trial is even going on is a travesty.  After all, the City of Dearbornistan allowed the Westboro Baptist Church cretins to protest in front of the very same mosque, just recently, and there were no bond posting requirements made of them.  They get death threats, too, which is the argument being made here–that Jones will cause violence and unrest because of the death threats against him.

Also absurd is that the prosecutors–Wayne County, which is full of roaming violent criminals, is wasting a ton of money and resources  on the case, sparing no expense on this trial, and its top assistant prosecutor is trying the case–showed the jury a video of Jones burning the Koran.  Not sure how his completely legal past First Amendment exercise is grounds for denying his future First Amendment exercise.  Clearly, they are trying him for his past free speech exercise.  That’s entirely unconstitutional and a violation of his rights.  And it’s simply ridiculous.  What the heck has happened to this country?  We’ve lost.

Oh, and to repeat:  FOX News–in pandering to Muslims–blacked out the video of Jones burning the Koran.  A Dearbornistan jury can see it, but you can’t.  No problem, though, with FOX News showing you Bibles and American flags being burned.

FOX 2 News . . . Working for allah.  FOX News . . . We Shariah, You Decide.  Halal and Balanced.

Hmmm. Can you imagine General Patton and FDR getting upset during WWIII because someone burned Mein Kampf? “We may get the local Germans upset, and this action will risk the war effort.”

Better yet, can you imagine during WWII being at War with Germany and Japan, and we are in the meantime providing arms to Romania and Hungary (Hitler’s allies) in their war against the U.S. and the USSR?

Can you imagine letting millions of Nazis into the U.S. during WWII?

Can you imagine not sealing our borders during WWII?

Can you imagine not providing aid to the underground forces during WWII to work against the Germans?

Today, we are pissing our pants over a Koran burning, we are aiding Al Queda in their fight against Qaddafi, and also supplying arms to the Saudis, we are letting in millions of Muslims, legally and illegally, into our country, we have unmanned borders, and we are not giving aid to the Iranians who wnat to fight against the Nazi induced Islamic government of Iran.

Now Debby, tell the truth – are you starting to like his beard-mustache? Personally, I would submerge a Koran in urine for the press. That should be Jones next media event!

Every so often, I plan for what I’m going to do the day I retire. It used to be crashing toy trains into each other a la’ Gomez Addams. Now, I guess, it will depend on how badly I want to be an international media start the day after the day I retire.

Richard Nodel, president of the Jewish Community Relations Council with the InterFaith Leadership Council’s statement condemning Jones.

“We are affirming that we will continue to stand together,” Bruttell said. “There is a need for us to come together to express our faith together, (to) express our hope together.

Also speaking out were a number of leaders of Christian faiths, and speakers from the terrorist organization popularly known as Islam.

    Jon, dhimmi Jews and Jewish anti-Semites. What they don’t know is Islam would dispose of them if it could.

    They should ask Vittorio Arrigoni. Hatred of the Jews and Israel isn’t enough to keep you alive.

    Goes to show what goes around comes around. Dinner at Tul Karem.

    All the Islamo-pandering news conferences in the world won’t change it.

I don’t buy the notion that Fox News panders to Muslims. I’m a regular viewer of the O’ Reilly Factor show and just a couple of weeks ago Bill O’ Reilly made several references to the “Muslim problem” in one of his segments. I forgot who the guest was but I could tell he didn’t appreciate the term.

Some local news producer probably made the call on censoring the burning story. As far as I’m concerned, Fox News is the ONLY national news outlet that doesn’t pander to Muslims.

What Islamo-pandering comes down to is fear of Islam.

The West imposes a self-censorship on itself in which Muslims must always be shown in a good light.

Its silly. The barbarism of Islam goes studiously unmentioned. But hey – Jews and Christians are fair game!

Such are the times in which we now live.

Hi Debbie,

Yes, you are right: “FOX News panders to Muslims” indeed!

And so do the other U.S. national TV News mediums like CNN, NBC, and ABC.

As you know (and thansk for the kind story) I was brutally whipped with a belt while overseas, in a sexually-motivated and very barbaric assault by an Arab ruling family Sheikh, who is the brother of the current President of the UAE; simply for excercising my right to say no; and I was left seriously injured.

How many Americans do you know of that have been savagely whipped and beaten with a belt, and left disabled for several years by it, only to discover that they can’t tell their story to the their own country’s supposedly “free” and “unbiased” national TV media, simply because that media like FOX and CNN are too afraid to stir up public opinion against the US Gov’t and its questionable involvment with the oppressive oil-rich regimes in the Gulf States???…none of our U.S. national TV news media will even discuss what happened to me!

They’ll discuss books being burned, but not American citizens being whipped by Muslim Rulers and Sheikh’s that belong to the same UAE ruling family that we signed “123 Nuclear Cooperation Agreements” with, under both BUSH and OBAMA administrations.

Seems like oil is still thicker than American blood for some people.

Those outlets like CNN and the UK’s BBC even flew me to Washington DC last year, and filmed me for over an hour, but they refuse to show it.

Scott Bronstein was the producer at CNN who filmed my interview there in Washington, and Jessy El-Murr at the BBC Washington did as well. Both coincidentally never showed it!

They are afraid of what I have to say, and THEY are the one’s who restrict our rights to freedom of speech and expression. Cowards!

Shame on you CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC! By the way, O’Reilly and FOX News are also cowards refuse to have me on the air, as their Arab masters may behead them! Hypocrits!

Prove me wrong FOX and Mr. O’Reilly, and you too CNN, have me on “LIVE”, where the edits can’t save you or the delinquent faces of your hypocritical Arab ruling family masters/owners!

Everyone of you should learn about Lt. Col. Allen West.
Even Debbie loves the man. He is the real deal.
He is a congressman from the 22nd Congressional District of Florida and I truly believe he is the one man who can beat obama and defeat the enemy.

I beg of you to get behind Allen West because I promise you, you will be inspired.

Go to YouTube.com and type in Allen West Israel and click on the first video.
After that you will be hooked on the man.

But for me, it is like, when you dislike Jesus’s teaching, you spit on his face! I don’t mean to be rude, how can you accept Jesus if you never heard his message before. Just to let you know that Jesus love you even you dislike him. Happy Easter, Jesus has Risen.
