Fox News Facts

Fox News Facts: You Have to Laugh #foxnewsfacts

I am sure that just about everyone in the UK has by now heard about the hilarious comments made by “Terrorism Expert” Steve Emerson on Fox News in the wake of last weeks horrific events in Paris.

The Telegraph reports that Mr Emerson, who describes himself as “an internationally recognised expert on terrorism”, made the claim, which may come as a surprise to the hundreds of thousands of non-Muslim residents of Britain’s second-largest city, during a television discussion about no-go zones in Europe where Muslims are apparently in complete control.

“In Britain, it’s not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in,” he said.  He continued saying that in “Parts of London, there are actually Muslim religious police that actually beat and actually wound seriously anyone who doesn’t dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire,” he proclaimed, without giving examples.

Of course the claims have been treated with hilarity in the UK and the hashtag #foxnewsfacts has gone viral with people posting in comparably wild claims.  Here are a few of my favourites.

For the avoidance of any doubt the tweets are sarcastic and satirical.  None of them are actually true 😉

Needless to say I have had far too much time on my hands this evening.  I could go on but I won’t 😉

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
