New York – During the October 16 edition of US Fox News program “Outnumbered,” co-host Andrea Tantaros cited local authority sources on a recent court ruling that ceased an NYPD mosque surveillance program.
Tantaros was discussing among other Fox figures the topic of, “Is the United States doing enough to fight Isis & stop recruitment,” in which the US could undergo an alleged terrorist attack to its vulnerable power grid.
According to the commentators, the threat of a radical group (ISIS) attack to the US infrastructure and power grid is real and is stirring controversy due to the ongoing forms of terrorist recruitment within the 50 states of the American nation.
In a video by mediamatters.org website, Andrea Tantaros mentioned a story that did not receive huge media coverage but it allegedly illustrates a problem in which NYPD’s mosque surveillance program was ceased over racist spying.
“The NYPD recently shut down its mosque surveillance program… this story didn’t get a lot of coverage this week, but this is big, guys — the court reinstated a lawsuit against the NYPD for Muslim spying citing a quote history of racist scares,” Tantaros said.
“So now if you’re a cop in New York City…you’re going to think twice about going in and trying to identify not people peacefully practicing their religion. No. People trying to go to war, trying to blow up the United States or enact a terror account,” the Fox anchor added implying that Muslims will convene inside their places of worship to plan terrorism if not surveilled.
The 36-year-old Andrea challenged the Judge’s ruling by asking if “radical Islam” as she called it, can have the right to freedom of speech and religion in the US.
“We just gave — and I think we need to ask the question and maybe ask Judge Andrew Napolitano — did we give de facto First Amendment rights and Fourteenth Amendment rights to radical Islam?” she said.
“Because you have the right to peacefully practice, but you do not have freedom of speech and freedom of religion when you are trying to destroy or go to war with another country,” Tantaros concluded.
