Just when I thought that FOX News couldn’t sink any lower….
Fox commentator and “one of the leading authorities on Islamic extremist networks”, Steve Emerson, has told millions of viewers that the UK’s second largest city Birmingham, “is totally Muslim where non-Muslims simply don’t go in”.
Emerson also added, “there are parts of London that are actually Muslim and religious police that actually beat and actually wound seriously anyone who doesn’t dress according to traditional Muslim attire.”
Watch the video below:
Emerson has now issued an apology for his ridiculous statements.
I have clearly made a terrible error for which I am deeply sorry.
My comments about Birmingham were totally in error.
And I am issuing an apology and correction on my website immediately for having made this comment about the beautiful city of Birmingham.
I do not intend to justify or mitigate my mistake by stating that I had relied on other sources because I should have been much more careful.
There was no excuse for making this mistake and I owe an apology to every resident of Birmingham.
I am not going to make any excuses. I made an inexcusable error. And I am obligated to openly acknowledge that mistake.
PS. I intend to make a donation to a Birmingham charity called the Birmingham Children’s Hospital
– STEVE EMERSON
I am so angry right now. I just want to kick this bare faced liar’s head off.
Steve Emerson is a dangerous man. His sole purpose during that interview was to spread fear and propaganda. The scum bag should be fired and Birmingham Children’s Hospital should decline his donation.
If it hadn’t have been for the power of Twitter, there would have been no apology.
