Bobby Jindal Warns of Islamic “No Go” Zones in the US
The man knows who butters his bread.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) on Wednesday stood behind his declaration that European cities have Muslim “no-go zones” and went on to say that if the U.S. wasn’t careful, it would be seeing its own “no-go zones” soon.
The term, a reference to alleged areas under Muslim control that follow Sharia law and are off-limits to the police, came under widespread criticism last week after a self-styled terrorism expert on Fox News said all of Birmingham, England was a “no-go zone.”
Fox News was later forced to apologize multiple times for its coverage of Muslims in Europe and admitted there is no credible evidence such areas exist.
Despite that, Jindal used the phrase this weekend during a speech in London and has repeatedly said that the “zones” exist.
On Wednesday, Fox host Neil Cavuto provided the governor an opportunity to walk back the terminology. But Jindal would not relent.
“If people don’t want to come here to integrate and assimilate, what they’re really trying to do is set up their own culture, their own communities,” Jindal said. “What they’re really trying to do is overturn our culture. We need to recognize that threat.”
