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

Published

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.

NC cops raid community organizer’s home in the middle of the night after he announces plans to sue

Published

On Friday, the Indy reported that Conrad James, a community organizer in Raleigh, North Carolina, was raided by police in the dead of night and arrested — just hours after he told the Raleigh City Council he plans to sue on behalf of Black Lives Matter protesters.

"Right now, what we’re doing is forcing demands that need to be met in order to meet the same type of demands that happened at the Geneva Convention,” said James at a city council meeting on Thursday night. “You guys committed an act of war, a war crime. A bunch of journalists out in California also had acts of war placed upon them, and they filed a class-action lawsuit. So this is the first time that we are going to notify you guys of the class-action lawsuit that all the protesters will have at your door tomorrow. Because the city attorney needs to defend the war crimes that were voted upon by the city.”
