Muslim group bans Daily Caller from event for being a ‘hate group’

Published

on

Tucker Carlson’s website The Daily Caller reported on Wednesday that a Muslim civil liberties advocacy organization had blocked them from attending a news conference, labeling the conservative outlet a “hate group.”

According to The Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) had scheduled the event to respond to recent attacks on U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya.

But after reviewing the reporter’s credentials, the CAIR communication director Ibrahim Hooper refused to let them join.

“The Daily Caller is not a news outlet, it is a hate group,” Hooper allegedly said. “You cannot come in.”

“We have any number of press people. In fact, we often have press people who are highly critical, or ask tough questions. But people who report for propagandist, anti-Muslim hate sites are not journalists,” he added, according to the report.

Earlier this year, The Daily Caller published two op-eds by a retired Army major general who had falsely suggested that President Barack Obama might be a Muslim. The outlet also published a column by former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO), who implied that there was a sinister relationship between Gov. Rick Perry (R) and the Muslim community in Texas.

Coglianese argued that the CAIR spokesperson took issue with opinion pieces published by The Daily Caller, not the site’s reporting.

Black Georgia lawmaker accuses white man of demanding she ‘go back where she came from’ in supermarket diatribe

On Friday evening, Erica Thomas, and African-American Democratic lawmaker in the Georgia House of Representatives, was shopping at a Publix supermarket in Mableton when a white customer came up to her and shouted at her, telling her to "go back where you came from" — words echoing President Donald Trump's recent racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color.

Thomas' crime? She had too many items for the express checkout line.

Today I was verbally assaulted in the grocery store by a white man who told me I was a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from bc I had to many items in the express lane. My husband wasn’t there to defend me because he is on Active Duty serving the country I came from USA!

Trump mocked for tweeting he’ll ‘personally vouch’ for rapper A$AP Rocky’s bail: ‘Now name three of his songs’

Twitter users were both baffled and amused on Saturday morning after Donald Trump tweeted that he would "personally vouch" for the bail needed to release American rapper A$AP Rocky from a Swedish jail.

After receiving a phone call from celebrity Kim Kardashian about the plight of the hip-hop star overseas, the president -- in the middle of a racism scandal himself -- appears to have taken up the cause in an effort to calm racism charges.

Not everyone on Twitter was buying it.

See below:

Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven who assured me that American citizen A$AP Rocky will be treated fairly. Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative....

Trump echoes another president who stoked fear rather than face the tech-based economic change he failed to stem

It is amazing how similar America in 2019 is to America in the 1920’s, a decade that began almost a hundred years ago. It is as if America is reliving its own history, trapped in a prison of deja vu, purposely not wanting to remember the disaster that unfolded as the 1920s ended.

The parallels are striking, the anti-immigration frenzy, race-baiting, trade wars, over-heated stock markets, corruption, and technological changes that produced hip urban centers contrasting with rural alienation and bitterness. Like today, the 1920s was a period of spectacular wealth and an ever-increasing income gap.
