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 😉
