Washington Post: don't allow hate and Islamophobia in your paper

IMG_9659.jpgOn Sunday March 24, 2019 edition of the Washington Post included a deplorable full-page ad falsely accusing Representative Ilhan Omar of anti-semitism. It intentionally misleads readers to believe Rep. Omar made statements she never uttered.

Send a message now to the Washington Post telling them that as a leading U.S. newspaper, they have an obligation not to participate in smear campaigns and incitements to hatred and Islamophobia. Ask the Washington Post to apologize to Rep. Omar and the Muslim community and commit to not selling misleading and hateful ads.

Sign our letter to the Washington Post!

Dear Washington Post:

I was extremely dismayed to see you print Rabbi Shmuley’s misleading and Islamophobic ad smearing Representative Ilhan Omar and inciting hatred against Muslims.

The ad begins with the words “Jews control the world with their money” next to Rep. Omar’s face, giving the false impression she said that. She did not.

Spreading Islamophobia and hatred is dangerous. The New Zealand mosque massacre just took the lives of 50 people and Rep. Omar is already facing serious death threats. Printing this ad contributes to the dangers the congresswoman and the world Muslim community face.

Please apologize to Rep. Omar and the Muslim community and commit to no longer selling space in your paper for ads that propagate any form of hatred.

    This is unacceptable. As one of the biggest and most well-known journalistic institutions in the country, we exprect the WP to not broadcast hate speech, especially after an islamaphobic terrorist attack. Apologize immediately

    Ironic that the hate monger bought a page out of a prominent newspaper to prove his point. (Sad)

    The continued misrepresentation of Israeli state policy of apartheid by paid shills such as Manuel is one of the gravest injustices today. In the age of Trump this is an ominous finding.

    Washington Post. You should no better than to promulgate hateful speech via advertisement. Do NOT allow Rabbi Smuley to misuse your newspaper.

    In this day and age where hate speech leads to murder all around the world and especially after we literally saw the slaughter of 51 innocent Muslims, you would think even the most hateful of humans will tone down their hateful rhetoric. Even Fox News suspended their hate filled program with Jeanine Pirro. Do better WaPo. I will not click on any more WaPo links until they apologize to Ilhan Omar and vow never to repeat this blunder.

    Hate, personal attacks, and divisiveness are apparently the new profit center for America’s billionaires and the amplified and unchecked forum they provide for the violent extremists they take their money from.
