For two nights running, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly criticized efforts by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to impede screenings –on university campuses and elsewhere – of a film about “honor violence” against Muslim women.
Kelly last night questioned CAIR Chicago representative Agnieszka Karoluk on “The Kelly File” about the group’s opposition to “Honor Diaries,” a documentary that addresses abuses such as female genital mutilation, forced marriages, and the oppression of women in Muslim society – what one commentator in the film calls “systematic, institutionalized misogyny.”
Karoluk, herself a Muslim woman, said that although CAIR doesn’t oppose raising awareness, the source of funding for the film, the Clarion Project, is “Islamophobic.” The film’s backers, she said, “use it to promote their own hate-filled agenda.”
“I’m not going to let you hijack this segment, Mr. Hooper. It’s not going to happen,” Kelly insisted after Hooper interrupted her. “Chuck Schumer came out and said, and I quote, ‘CAIR, we know has ties to terrorism. Prominent members of CAIR’s current leadership, also – excuse me – had intimate connections with Hamas.’”
Kelly accused the organization of playing the smear card against opponents:
“Your critics say that when you hear anything negative about you, you threaten a lawsuit. And the viewers should know that you have gone after and threatened Reader’s Digest, the American Medical Association, U.S. News and World Report, Atlantic Monthly, the Dallas Morning News, Fox News – we did a segment on Honor Diaries just the other week. You demanded a retraction, which you’re not getting. Every time you hear something you don’t like, you try to shut down the message. Whereas here in America, we like speech. Good and bad.”
Hooper, meanwhile, never refuted the charge by Sen. Chuck Schumer that Kelly cited, choosing to dodge the accusation:
KELLY: Have you come to a better place with Chuck Schumer?
HOOPER: When we had our annual dinner, we had, I think, 70 different letters of support from congressman. We had congressman appear at our banquets. We have relations where, on a daily contact with the FBI on civil rights issues, on a variety of things.
Last night Megyn Kelly interviewed the notorious Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper. You can watch part one and my accompanying ), Ibe soils himself and exposes who and what both he and Hamas-CAIR really are.
These Islamic supremacists invoke freedom of speech, invoke the First Amendment to kill freedom of speech and undermine the First Amendment.
I am only sorry that Megyn Kelly didn’t give Ayaan Hirsi Ali this kind of time. Or Wafa Sultan, Nonie Darwish, et al.
I love how Hooper claims to be in constant contact with the FBI ( to which Kelly responds, “I bet you are”) never mentioning the 2008 FBI policy banning non-investigative cooperation with CAIR. The ban on interactions with CAIR resulted from an FBI investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood-created Hamas-support network in the United States.

Megyn Kelly Embarrasses CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) exists for one primary purpose: to silence critics of Islam. The best way to silence critics of Islam, however, is to masquerade as a civil rights organization. Thus, CAIR pretends to be concerned about Constitutional rights, while demonizing anyone who dares object to jihad, sharia, and the abuse of women.
Sadly, the American media have been falling for CAIR’s tactics for years. Megyn Kelly is one of the few exceptions. Here’s her recent two-part obliteration of CAIR’s spokesman, Ibrahim Hooper.
