Last month, the American Family Association’s radio network happily joined Gov. Bobby Jindal in pushing discredited claims about Sharia law no-go zones in countries such as the United Kingdom, with the network’s flagship host Bryan Fischer claiming that Britain has no-go zones where “no infidel would dare” enter because “you go in there at risk of your life.”
“Everybody’s got no-go zones in Europe, Bobby Jindal is telling the truth about that,” Fischer said last month, leaving out the fact that Jindal was unable to name a single such “no-go zone.”
On Monday, American Family Radio hosts Jim Stanley and Ed Vitagliano interviewed British evangelist and House of Lords member Lord Robert Edmiston about immigration in Britain, so naturally Stanley asked Edmiston about the no-go zones.
“In the U.K., there are no-go zones as I understand it?” Stanley asked.
Edmiston, however, told Stanley that “there is no such thing as a no-go area.”
Edmiston said that while there are neighborhoods where immigrants are heavily concentrated, “there really isn’t a no-go area as such.”
