Fox News network has a long history of spreading Islamophobia, so it was no surprise that the hosts of ‘Fox And Friends’ were complaining about Wisconsin high school students learning about Islamic culture in their World History classes.
Right Wing radio host Vicki McKenna received emails showing that Union Grove High School assigned students to write a paper about being a Muslim in the United States, and the struggles they might endure in America, according to Media Matters. Outraged by this assignment, ‘Fox And Friends’ co-host Steve Doocy stated:
Big question is, I wonder if any of the kids who took that assignment, said “Pretend You Are a Muslim,” actually wrote down, for instance, what Sharia law is and, you know, what’s involved in that? And if they did, I wonder what their grades were.
Apparently, Fox News has not mastered the “think before you say it” technique because there is no Sharia Law in the U.S., so that logically does not make sense for this assignment.
Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck then argued that the high school should be teaching about religions (what she meant was just Christianity). Brian Kilmeade ended the segment by asking the viewing audience:
Do us a favor, maybe you think this is a great idea and give people a sense of tolerance or maybe you don’t and you agree with me. Let us know on Facebook or on Twitter.
