A Muslim journalist shut down a Fox News pundit over her “entitled and arrogant” view of the Syrian refugees.
A Syrian refugee discussion on the Fox news sister channel got heated when Jessie Jane Duff, a regular Fox security pundit affiliated with the London Center for Police Research, clashed with Muslim journalist Noor Tagouri.
Tagouri began the discussion on WTTG’s “Unfiltered” segment by asserting that the federal government had been effective at resettling around 750,000 refugees since 2001, and pointing out that none of them had been charged with domestic terrorism.
Duff, however, insisted that there was no guarantee that one of the Syrian refugees would not “become a Trojan Horse and come into this country.”
“There have been 1,500 Syrian refugees let into this country so far, we’re talking about another 10,000,” Duff said. “The cost alone to the American taxpayer is going to be $6.5 billion. We have a right to defend ourselves.”
Tagouri argued that refusing to help Syrian refugees was exactly what ISIS wanted the United States to do.
“It’s just funny to me because this entire conversation is sparked from the Paris attacks when none of the attackers were refugees,” she noted.
“Not true,” Duff interrupted. “There was one that had a Syrian passport.”
WTTG anchor Shawn Yancy reminded Duff that the Syrian passport found in Paris had likely been faked.
In another part of the discussion Duff goes on to say: “And the day that the women in this country are raped and beheaded the way that the Yazidi women have been, we will have blood on our hands!”
“This is exactly what you would tell the Syrian mother and her kids to their faces?” Tagouri wondered. “This is exactly what ISIS wants.”
“This is such a shame that we’re talking like this,” she added. “For us to sit here and continuously feed into this idea of what ISIS wants to believe, which is what you’re doing.”
“Don’t speak for me,” Duff complained.
