The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is demanding an apology from Andrea Tantaros of Fox News for comments she made on the show “Outnumbered.
The AAJA statement said that “AAJA calls for Tantaros and Fox News to apologize for the irresponsible, inflammatory statements. We also call on Fox News to discourage its journalists from making blanket comments that serve to perpetuate hate and Islamophobia.”
Commenting on the brutality of the ISIS terrorists who beheaded journalist James Foley, other panelists noted that for ISIS, beheadings are a daily thing, and that the victims include Muslims, Christians and Yazidis.
Tantaros agreed and added that “they've been doing it for hundreds of years. If you study the history of Islam – our ship captains were getting murdered. The French had to tip us off. I mean these were the days of Thomas Jefferson. They've been doing the same thing. This isn't a surprise. You can't solve it with a dialogue. You can't solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head. Its the only thing these people understand. And all we've heard from this president is a case to heap praise on this religion, as if to appease them.”
A defiant Tantaros declared today that she spoke the truth and has “no intention of apologizing. Period.”
