Shep Smith: Kim Davis Fans Are Same Crew Panicking About Muslims Invoking Sharia Law


Fox News' Shepard Smith criticizes the hypocrisy of the supporters of Kim Davis during their rally celebrating her release from jail.

SHEP SMITH: Well, they set this up as a religious play again. This is the same crowd that says, "We don't want Sharia law, don't let them tell us what to do, keep their religion out of our lives and out of our government." Well, here we go again. When this started, this lawyer said that he needed an accommodation for a woman who wanted one. She said she didn't want her name on a license for gay people. They couldn't come up with an accommodation. Now they've come up with one: they've let her out of jail; they've said, "All right, you don't have to have your name on there. We'll just put the county on there." All this is done.

But it's not what they want--you're hearing now what they want. This is what they want, and this is what they're going to get: a stirred-up argument in a couple of days of the news cycle, and they're going to be able to make these claims. And the truth is when you get right down to the fundamentals of this, the Supreme Court of the United States says that you can't have things being okay for one group of people and not okay for another group of people. This is not unprecedented. They did it when they said that black and white people couldn't marry. And they said, "Oh, wait, I guess you can." Now they've said straight people and gay people can also all get married. You want to get married? Go right at it.

The government is not going to get in the way of you more than they did in the way of straight people back in the day. But haters are going to hate. We thought that what this woman wanted was an accommodation, which they've granted her--something that worked for everybody, but it's not what they want. This is what they want. So when Mike Huckabee comes up there we'll hear his side of all of this, which will be similar to this side, right after a quick commercial break on Fox News Channel.
