Fox News host Toni Lahren triggered a Twitter storm Monday when she claimed supporters of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) back “stoning gays” because they’re “tolerant” of Islamic Sharia.

The perspective isn’t far off from the one that got Fox News host Jeanine Pirro bounced off the air for weeks. Pirro said Omar’s hijab “may be antithetical” to the Constitution, even though the Constitution protects free expression of religion. Pirro wondered if Omar’s hijab was “indicative of her adherence to Sharia law” and not America.

Omar strongly supports gay rights — and America ― and has never suggested she’s in favor of stoning anyone.

No one person – no matter how corrupt, inept, or vicious – can threaten my unwavering love for America. I stand undeterred to continue fighting for equal opportunity in our pursuit of happiness for all Americans.

Lahren’s vicious, head-scratching, attack adds to the Islamaphobic anti-Omar hate campaign led by Fox News personalities and President Donald Trump.

The Left stands up for @IlhanMN and says we MUST be tolerant of Sharia Law (oppression/stoning of gays) yet mercilessly attack @VP for not believing in same-sex marriage….Explain your logic.

People on Twitter poked holes in Lahren’s claim.

Ignorant racists like you pushing this fantasy that Sharia law is coming to America is one of the reasons Ilhan and so many other Muslims get death threats. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Makes sense seeing as Omar has been pushing for federal protections and equal rights for the LGBT+ community.

You first. I don’t know a single “leftist” who says we must be tolerant of Sharia. Pence just prefers to oppress gays by generally dehumanizing them, like you do. It’s much more “Christian” I guess.

Nobody. Nobody is saying that. And The VP’s history ( & his wife’s current choice of employer) speaks for itself. We see you.

You’re making shit up to stir up islamophobia and it’s working. You know people are dumb enough to believe you. I know you’re a white supremecist

I think you need to explain how not ALL Christians interpret the Bible as giving them them the right to force Jews and Muslims to convert under threat of torture. Then you might understand how Shariah does not mean all Muslims should stone gays.

Because your lying and because you’re just smearing the left.Should I mention that the book of Leviticus promotes the stoning of anyone who violates Biblical law?By all means, the Koran does have some connections to the Bible.

NOONE IS TALKING ABOUT SHARIA LAW EXCEPT FOX
